3:01 am
what the plot is going to be so you because you've got to put things into context of what was up you know so i know you would guess this is money it's a relief for your granted that's what the clock i mean what. a very good morning to you it's ten am here in moscow and you're watching r.t. international with me. now our top story this hour donald trump is considering revoking the security clearance of several former top intelligence officials the white house press secretary said they had been making political and financial gains from the information they had access to but the announcement didn't go unchallenged because speech doesn't like and he wants to punish them for you know i think you are creating your own story there is the president doing exactly what you. just
3:02 am
said the president doesn't want all these people doing a little sizing matters of national security by going after his political enemies people are politicizing agencies and departments that are specifically meant to not be political and not to be monetized off of security. six people were named including former heads of the cia f.b.i. and n.s.a. most of them are known for being critics of donald trump's policies the officials themselves say if they clear with his revoked it won't really change anything the security clearance has nothing to do with how i or any of us feel about the president i don't get briefings i don't have access to any classified information it's frankly more of a courtesy i don't go back for classified briefings won't have any effect on what i say all right former u.s. intelligence officials have a history of speaking out once they leave office. explains. the former heads of
3:03 am
u.s. intelligence agencies are now dabbling in politics the fired f.b.i. director james comey just advised the democrats to steer clear of socialism. democrats please please don't lose your minds and rush to the socialist left this president and his republican party accounts going you to do exactly that now this comes just after his recent tweet and which he said that the only way to support american values was to go democrat. who believe in this country's values must vote for democrats this fall policy differences don't matter right now history has its eyes on us now james komi fits in with a big cast of characters these are former intelligence officers who are now telling us what we should be thinking about politics i know we're not nazi germany all right but there is a commonality there and
3:04 am
a fear on my part that we have standards we have to live up to having some understanding of the levers of power that or available to the president if. he chooses to there to. those. downright scary and and disturbing there's a big question first of all in terms of those who are on mr trump's national security team whether they can continue to serve in good conscience an individual who basically portrayed his nation now it hasn't always been like this former cia top boss george tenet became a private investment banker he left the public eye after leaving office and former f.b.i. director louis spray he launched a private consulting firm here's why it's kind of a big deal it turns out that former intelligence officials usually keep their security clearance. is john brennan monetizing his security
3:05 am
clearance. is john brennan making millions of dollars they've fallen seacrest to the mainstream media with his attacks on donald trump so even after leaving office they've still got power and connections that they could use to further their agenda on the intelligence. so whatever happened to a quiet retirement now in the park of the sun but new forces emerging former top spies who are turning to political activism they will mark the party new york. editor of defense and foreign affairs magazine gregory copley says that in any other country such behavior would be considered treasonous but what we've seen lately the last two years is. the situation with people like director of national intelligence clapper and the like brennan. and so on have been making extremely harsh comments designed deliberately to undermine
3:06 am
the current u.s. government now this is this would be treason of all the most governments around the world there are profound cases of damage to the united states' image to the united states' ability to function in a national security sense from what we've seen from this range of. commenting in the last eighteen months to two years. president transformer adviser steve bannon has announced plans to spark a right wing revolution in europe he wants to create a new foundation promoting the ideology the plans were revealed in an interview with news website the daily beast balance says he aims to rival the impact of the open society foundations set up by liberal billionaire george soros balance foundation is called the movement and is expected to have headquarters in brussels
3:07 am
the organization would offer polling think tank research and advice on targeting european right wing groups these plans sparked outrage among some members of the european parliament an attack on freedom and democracy in europe we will not stand idle we will respond we have to fight now with good arguments confident and true it's a frontal attack on the e.u. and european values. george soros has spent billions to promote leftist ideas for years for example funding pro e.u. campaigns by supporting a second breck's it referendum we asked to any piece tell your skull or glue from a series of party what he thinks of bannon's initiative. what is wrong with promoting an alternative does it not challenge views so you get debate you get conversation instead of name calling people in the united states. if you follow the
3:08 am
money so where the money was going to finance these. movement which so movement rather for the division of europe and north korea the unit you're right could that argument not be made to george soros as well why shouldn't these parties and groups who have support of large swathes of the population get some help from the outside the same way that the left has been getting help from soros and other like minded billionaires this is not the point where yes we know where that money comes from because the fly in those themselves but they are financing that of sims for what they are in favor of the reste. you know call the previous variable or be you well that's not really on the working class telling us is that there's a lot of working class people who fear that their jobs are being taken by possibly by immigrants possibly by other forces at play and they are voting for who they think will be able to solve those concerns and at the moment across europe and many
3:09 am
countries it's not the left they need an alternative well yes. sort of the left of course so you admit that there is no way you know but it's very easy to be a democrat you don't use a. scapegoat whether. mr soros or the scapegoat is the recruiters are you why workers are going to be excluded right so we couldn't you guys there in britain would have breakfasted but now that that's true that's the reason you don't have to be an extreme right winger to have views on immigration do you when you're seeing so many people coming from north africa and sub-saharan africa into your nation that they did not vote for. so you know well if you see so many people at. different places you've got to be wise you know and the people who you know we are
3:10 am
coming from. the middle east that we started all of the people out of all of these are reduced there are people we united states great britain and the people of bombarding you know they destroyed the crowd and now they are denying the story go and political responsibility and this is the same it is the same goals for the people not the rivers is where immigrants come from africa whatever stated article or of the curator essentially you know that reaches european governments they have to take their response would be the people of the. people in bristol in southwest england are divided over a plan to add a plaque to a statue that commemorates a seventeenth century merchant involved in the slave trade at colston is a prominent figure in the city's history for his philanthropy however much of his wealth was acquired through the oil african company which was involved in the slave
3:11 am
trade residents say people need to be more aware of coast ins past and the demanding a plaque mentioning his role in the slave trade with many now also calling for the statue to be removed altogether we spoke to racial equality campaign early jasper and stephen morris from the english democrats. why are we got the statue of a man who sold millions of africans into bondage and slavery rip them babies from their mothers breast separated families killed maimed and murdered millions of africans but he gave money to charity so we should have a statue of him in our town square we have to look at the full history of the of the slave trade this was going on for thousands of years before europeans arrived africans were enslaved africans and selling them to the arabs way before we got there and it's actually quite unfair to judge the past by today's standards and
3:12 am
today's models so for me it's part of the history but it really got to be showing the full history of what was going on at the time and not just to be a scene until european issue against the slave trade when the slave trade was very predominant across the entire continents at that time so for me you look at the history of but we've got to put it into context our chile the fifty million people is a lot or don't know about and simple thing one kid was all in for what we know and redesign and find it that day historians of the time are all consensual around that figure so i think it is you need to get your facts straight it all depends what the plots going to be saying because you've got to put things into context of what was going now you all the guest is just going on a complete. whatever whatever point he was trying to put forward whatever argument he was trying to put forward is actually been lost and he's actually rants now you all the guesses this man is
3:13 am
a racially and all round so that's what i mean whatever that is it would be more loony trying to put forward i'm going to pluck there than you have to make sure that you put it into context of what was happening around the world we shouldn't be imagining and celebrating colton it should be either bristol. zeal of shame which you can go in and all you are the colonial aspects and really of the past but i don't worry it should be called checks your lies as the most horrific period in bristol's history you cannot george historical events by today's standards you have to look at what was going on at the time more blacks was enslaved by blacks than there were by the europeans so he needs to tell us all a lot why why why why why are to you why you subjected me to the most ignorant based racist. rewrite of the street but obviously not. the name of the
3:14 am
white man who's got no idea how we all believe in marriage to comments. more blacks was enslaved by blacks than they were by the europeans so he needs to needs to actually look and stop being very hypocritical. and allstream to pipeline which is currently under construction is set to deliver natural gas from russia to germany the project has been widely criticized by the us which once to supply its own liquid natural gas instead chompers also warns that the pipeline will make perlin too dependent on moscow but according to a recent poll it seems the majority of germans them see it that way i think it's a horrible thing that you have a pipeline coming from russia and i believe that germany is going to be getting fifty sixty four even i've heard numbers of seventy percent of their energy coming in from russia. and how can you be working for peace and working from strength when somebody has that kind of power of you i don't think it's good you're
3:15 am
not working for the strike you've given up all of your strength i think it's very bad for germany very good for the german people. the pipeline will be about one thousand two hundred kilometers long it's a multi-billion euro venture between russia and five international companies that runs next to the original nord stream pipeline and will double the amount of gas being transferred won't stream to is set to be fully operational next year economist icon the says the project is the best way for germany to meet its growing demand for natural gas this is a matter of a great opportunity for germany to have another infrastructure that supplies us with natural gas which is needed in germany without being able to be blackmailed by the countries in between every american foreign policy is one of the duty they have to give a closer relationship between russia and germany are the u.s.
3:16 am
is not in the position anymore to make a big ace because germany now after the sanctions and after the not of the like behavior of america against germany we have to look for better opportunities or of that unity's and therefore it is not a possibility at all anymore to separate germany or europe from from russia anyway he just wants to be the first he just wanted to need to make the deal and make the your base especially the germans to wait a little bit longer and the american companies are allowed to make deals in russia i think this is all about he's a business that greece is in the grip of deadly forest fires and is asking the e.u. for help i'll bring you all the latest of this call as a short break. people
3:17 am
criticize us or they question us and they want to know why we're not more books critical of russia and the real question is how come we're not tooting russia's horn more because they are been genius during this crisis but that would be i think a little bit you know over the top to simply point out all the good things that they're constantly doing so we just try to take a more balanced middle of the road approach that's you know the fact is that they're making all these other economies look stupid by comparison. seemed wrong. but old rules just don't hold. any new world view yet to shape our disdain comes to educate and engage with equals betrayal.
3:18 am
when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. welcome back a devastating wildfire has reportedly killed at least fifty people and left seventy injured near the greek capital offense. because. i. mean.

a german football star of turkish descent house quits the national team saying he feels and once it in his own country mesut ozil was subjected to widespread criticism of the posing for a photo with the presidents of turkey in the run up to the fee for world cup. there's. your infuses chantelle a national lampoon polls and a long time ago and nothing self-important parameters from the fictional muslim congress someone down that is not a german and someone that should not play football for the german national team such a photograph has a symbolic value and it is definitely not what is needed at the moment this is
3:20 am
clear when you play for germany you represent the country the german values. the future of also with the plan was a mistake it is still a mistake to say the reason the president also gave did not convince me so he speaks of respect but that raises the question of how is his respect for the victims of crimes policy perspective journalists who are in prison because they have done that job. man. man. or. is it just as you know the chance to hold music personal in high steve vizard rosalie's and wait he has done a lot for the national football team he has now made a decision that must be respected so instead and in any case the truth is on the
3:21 am
pitch the fact of the jumpers knockouts walcott has little to do with mr us all having his picture taken with the president i don't. chinese president xi jinping given rwanda as part of a four nation trip to africa to establish deeper trade ties here earlier visited senegal which is the first west african country to be involved in china's belt and road infrastructure project beijing has been expanding its presence in africa in recent years and twenty sixteen alone china invested to thirty nine billion dollars in the continent bringing the total to more than two hundred billion. but the initiative hasn't been without its critics the u.s. thinks the countries are not prepared for such huge investment and may end up deeply in debt to china however recent offensive remarks from donald trump have strained relations with the continent the president of the united states is racist he really is the devil this is an actual quote from the actual president this is
3:22 am
the gift that he decided to give the american people there not whole country for one donald trump isn't there for us that. political analysts we spoke to think that countries in africa are turning to china because of u.s. government policies. the united states has it varies more outlook towards africa and the rest of the world they do not want to best interest truck which is a long term investment very imprudently entire economy and they have basically add it to the united states especially which i know i know well is to make money make double digit profits overnight they're not interested in the long term development of the country that's why the united states and the west don't know all. too they can tilt the china to china has built a new energy how do energy plants china's built
3:23 am
a new ports and there's many more things that they're working on in the course africa so the problem is that the west expense is not really thinking how to. think in terms of how do we make some fast boxes in the united states the u.s. united states influence on africa was already doing lng be well before don't want to some came into the play and it will continue to do because of some of his comments he's attitude towards africans and he's position on africa in general he's only interested in basis and africans i'm afraid i'm very much interested in in partnership and those that take them seriously and i know of cause like a liberalized continent it's voting with three tiny changing united states in every sector that i know of in favor of the chinese or i'll force china already had a huge presence and influence and that in france i've just grown to levels for
3:24 am
which even if the americans were to try now like you to ever catch the the chinese in my lifetime. have your say on all of our stories by following us on social media other back at the top of the hour with the latest thing then. i've been saying the numbers mean something they matter the u.s. has over one trillion dollars in debt more than ten white collar crimes happen each day. eighty five percent of global wealth he longs to be all for rich eight point six percent market saw a thirty percent rise last year some with four hundred to five hundred three per second per second and bitcoin rose to twenty thousand dollars. china is building a two point one billion dollar a i industrial park but don't let the numbers overwhelm. the only numbers you need to remember one one business shows you can afford to miss the one and only boom

bust. financial. locust it is it. must just as last. time knows it. could. do it in a little cool water so this is not. a single to the religious right and i am. all for school it's all about the look i want and. the one of the night in my columns i'm all. for
3:26 am
a. cut. you'll end up. in a world of big partisan movie lot and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the store. it's that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door on the shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now we're watching closely watching the hawks. welcome the report i'm ask eyes are all kinds of exciting stories developing right
3:27 am
before your very is hey max i want to say i don't need to toot our own horn but i'm going to we were right and b.b.c. newsnight were wrong and that is according to bloomberg and a former i.m.f. official and they say basically kaiser report was right newsnight was wrong newsnight was wrong not only like once but like two three four five six times in a row back in two thousand and fourteen. with the introduction of sanctions against russia and the tumble of the ruble. well during that time b.b.c. newsnight said there would be a current account crisis there would be a debt crisis and basically russia would fall and we covered the story we had leant how again on telegraph journalists and we had constantine and it was episode six
3:28 am
nine five and this is december twentieth two thousand and fourteen and here's a short clip of liam halligan talking about the nerves of steel coming from the kremlin i actually think even though the current the interest rate move that we have seen has been dramatic from ten and a half to seventeen of course the six interest rate rise so far this year the central bank hasn't actually fired its big guns yet we have had a little bit of currency intervention it's mainly been the conversion of the ministry of finance is existing on the books flows from rubles ensue from dollar story into roubles. you've also go the reserves this for the so-called stabilization fund stabilization fund that was created for more revenues over the last few years precisely for this moment we've already seen single digit billions used from that. and that's why a lot of people have been so we've got to i say and they still didn't fire the big
3:29 am
bazooka it suggests to me that some pretty strong in the kremlin at the moment so the kremlin had nerves of steel back then and we reckon they would survive b.b.c. didn't reckon they were survive and then we're going to get into a headline from bloomberg saying actually they did very well they have an agenda over there the b.b.c. and we also have an agenda it's called truth and we just look at the numbers and we give you the unvarnished view of how gravity works in the universe as it relates to the economy they were basically blinded by some sort of hysteria they were wrong here's one area where russia beats the u.s. by several key measures as the. world's best economic management says the i.m.f. former top man in the country martin gellman he spent twenty four years at the international monetary fund much of it as the funds man in russia before during and after the country's the final crisis of the late one nine hundred ninety s. a devaluation and default that reverberated around the world since two thousand and five he's been a professor of economics at moscow's higher school of economics and
3:30 am
a well connected observer of the government's policies so bloomberg asks him how does russia's economic management today differ from what it was back then and he answered that well it's much better largely because so many of the people now in charge experience that crisis for instance the head of the central bank elvira nebula was a deputy economy mr alexei khujand a close putin advisor and chairman of the accounts of chamber was a deputy finance minister german graf the chief executive officer of the state controlled sperm bank was a deputy minister of state property these people want to make sure that it never happens again on their watch so long as this economic team is in charge there won't be another crisis and russia people criticize us or they question us and they want to know why we're not more quote critical of russia the real question is how come we're not tooting russia's horn more because they are been genius during this crisis but that would be i think.
