with their stories they have no respect for the volunteers they take drugs in the morning and some say they might attack the women working at the center as soon as something happens everything is done to protect the refugees they always have an excuse because of their difficult past many refugees and sold to threaten the stuff but nobody says anything on condition of anonymity workers also complained to local media that a colleague was attacked with a chair leg when we reached out to police brussels for clarification they confer and they'd been called by the center but stopped short of giving any details we. yes indeed we have already intervened at this center the response teams were called three times over the past week in situations like these there are issues either between migrants or between the migrants and the organization itself they do not respect the rules or that sort of thing and that sparks conflict. the ngo running the facility insists they haven't received any complains from the workers at the

center and says it fulfills its mission well. i've been working on the ground for three years now and i really truly have never seen anyone attack a woman they're obviously mentally ill people who sold others then the tension rises. but i have never heard any threats to this belgium case isn't an isolated one a volunteer group here in france that helped migrants claimed they had faced similar issues upon us from the beginning our mission was to serve hot drinks and bread and we've done this for twenty months every day during the last month we started questioning our mission because we don't want to volunteer to be put in danger they have nothing not even tends to sleep on the ground and sometimes woken up by the police in the morning they kick them and used to take us to move them so when they come to us they're stressed and nervous twice last week we had to stop serving food to let the tension calm down this is something new for us so yes we're stopping

4:33 pm
were believed to have been stored in that apartment back in twenty sixteen that is part of a wider investigation into a twenty two year old man in france in conjunction with french authorities he's been named as claymont be who was arrested last year on suspicion of plotting a terror attack now the two men are believed to have been planning an attack together and that they stockpiled large quantities of explosives in the flats that was searched today in berlin there's no word on what the target their intended target was but what prosecutors have said is that the two men were planning an attack that was intended to cause the maximum amount of deaths now that attack was foiled inadvertently by the police after it seems that the two became spooked after the amount of police attention that elysee was getting that prompted the thirty one year old to remain in berlin but his twenty two year old believed conspirator to
4:34 pm
flee via arkan and eventually into france where he was arrested markham had alley see will be before a federal judge on thursday where he's expected to have the charges read out against him still lots on the program including one of the world's most recognizable sporting brands is facing heavy criticism over the release of new training gear we delve into dance in ninety seconds. what politicians do you should look to. put themselves on the on the big get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president i'm sure more some want to
4:35 pm
be preached. to the right to be first to see what the forecast three of them or can't be good good i've been pursuing all those in the waters of my colleagues. small seemed wrong when old roles just don't call. me old yet to say proud disdain comes to educate and in games from an equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart. just to look for common ground the.
4:36 pm
a quarter of an hour into the program welcome back a sports giant is facing buck lush in the u.k. after releasing a controversial winter sports garment with some suggesting the company is cashing in on gang culture the balaklava in question has an attachment that can be quote clipped away for easy transit to suggest and it also has a pocket that some say can be used to holster a weapon there's been an angry reaction online. there's multiple stabbings every day around the country a massive gang problem that's getting worse by the day and night he has released this seventy pound balaklava are they dumb nike are using a black guy to promote about a club with straps and pockets where there is blood there is money now nike are endorsing gun and knife crime as well as in forcing racial profiling well done why exactly are you promoting a baloch lover in july if this was in winter it least it's hard to criticize well
4:37 pm
there have been thirty five thousand recorded knife crimes in britain over the past twenty four months the highest a month since data became available more than a fifth of those arrested for carrying a knife are teenagers or younger than that among those bashing night for the controversial headgear is social media comedian white yardy he posted this on instagram. listen to me tonight nike whatever we offer pronounce it listen to you because right now it looks like you're targeting the young people who are involved in junk and with this recent stubbins that we've been seeing right now in london this is definitely something we know are for see because i see those people know we need to protect you what's. explain the you know night don't do it. oh we spoke to the moment question there who described the balaklava as military looking and dots whether it's appropriate i'll even so you get in the lots of these
4:38 pm
killings that have been happening recently i like ten minutes so we are from my hoax they came up with the wrong timing with this not only that is this something appropriate they should be making because yes this by the club was we noticed by the club was right there's many stores you can go into and buy about the club but this one just seemed to be more military look i don't think this was a great idea you shouldn't stop why would this upgrade why you have better we think what are you hiding from us army well here's some of your action we got to this among londoners. could be sort of a sportsman like you claimed or. could be also a terrorist my immediate reaction is terrorists first so it's a bit scary. but at the same times i do scary might be just sports equipment you find a menacing no no the problem is i'm from canada so all i think of is someone being
4:39 pm
warmed to me it could be a good winter i'd outfit. it's not up healing to me at all i don't think you can banks and. it's not just so much that what's going on. is as if these could have. i don't know you can see it was them with. something like why the trying to cover the faggots by. i don't see why you won't which. you wouldn't want to have to face you're not invited he's not going to make you to buy you know you you know do you know the branded name i don't think it's really a fashion police i think they might have done it because that is too little too child for some. good to. make a profit on the back of the kind of image it was encouraged more gangsterism stuff you think so yeah of course there's nothing to do with nike if they don't get it
4:40 pm
from making they get it from somewhere else if nothing else oh my god when we're seen around with people wearing. well we saw a response from the company. they probably is available in multiple markets around the world adding that it does not condone or encourage gang culture in any way nike has no remove the so-called item from its website. an american journalist has published a new investigation exposing washington's efforts to interfere with the internal affairs of countries or run the world and undermine rival governments marks blumenthal attended an event organized by the national endowment for democracy it's a nonprofit non-governmental organization founded in one thousand nine hundred three it's supported as well by both the democratic and republican parties currently in operates in close to one hundred nations. while the national endowment for democracy say's its work aims to help
4:41 pm
non-governmental groups promote democracy blumenthal couldn't help but notice some part of the. right i covered the ceremony because these organizations are doing exactly what congress accuses russia funded media outlets control farms of doing in the united states to interfere in other country's politics and with foreign money. the only difference is they do it openly and in the name of spreading freedom. well activists out there meeting were quite clear on their agenda themselves explained. once again. i'd like to express our sincere gratitude to buy pot of. the poor and also u.s. congresspeople as well and u.s. citizens eventually we are doing this work with the u.s. citizens tax americans have no idea that they're funding an organization that's explicitly dedicated to meddling in other countries affairs interfering in
4:42 pm
elections toppling often democratically elected leaders and spreading public relations campaigns to sow chaos against countries that resist washington's agenda but here you have kind of open acknowledgement from this korean activist who is behind the transitional justice working group which is responsible for a lot of what congress states and you know about north korea's suppose it human rights violations so basically the united states is paying for its own findings to ramp up sanctions and hostility against north korea and what's really interesting about this event that i attended in capitol hill is that it was timed to coincide with the trump him summit but it was essentially a u.s. government backed event undermining a u.s. government initiative to foster peace between north and south korea and that to me seems like almost and then a form of internal interference you think that the national endowment for democracy
4:43 pm
. if there is a peace treaty that they should cease funding civil society groups that seek a transition or regime change and i think i don't know that that's what they do but i do know that they promote human rights they and i mean for example if russia were funding civil society groups inside the us i'm not going to need to put the worth a do i think it's pretty obvious i mean two things are going on there first of all you have. these activists and organizations that are funded by the national endowment for democracy. see the u.s. regime change arm in south korea who are dedicated to regime change in north korea really worried that the money's going to stop rolling in from washington if there is a peace treaty so basically conflict is an entire industry and it's part of this fake human rights and democracy promotion industry so pelosi wanted to duck that issue and then the other issue she wants to duck is the sheer hypocrisy of supporting an
4:44 pm
organization that funds civil society groups and opposition media to topple governments and so chaos and sovereign countries while complaining that for example this network r t does that in the united states and that's exactly what nancy pelosi and her colleagues in congress do every day when confronted with the issue there's nothing they can do but deflect and run away as palosi did. a lot of what we do today was done covertly twenty five years ago by the cia it's even more the case since the color revolution model has been introduced. and what the ne does is what the cia might have done to salvador allende in she lay but they do so overtly and therefore avoid a lot of the scrutiny from congress it looks like they're funding democracy and legitimate protests but they're directing their resources exclusively against countries that resist washington's economic and political agenda it's an extension
4:45 pm
of the cia but it seems like it's pushing human rights and things that americans can get behind and that's why they receive so little scrutiny from the public it's very clever actually this is are to international water is fast becoming liquid gold in india withdrawing to numerous parts all but dick country we examine the plight of the working poor next in which to. significant. enough of it. in the for. ya siegel you would be useful because. you were talking to. them. out loud. to me give you
4:46 pm
a charity. and then a lot of it i'm about to come out of a skid but i'm going to look at him as art and when i was up the money into. the. hotel a long long long unless mom was on. to say to me. there. was a long. haul that was if you made. other people more dull films like those of. our. lives that. make this manufacture consent to stick to the public well. when the room in
4:47 pm
closest project themselves. with the famous merry go round lifts only the one percent. we can all middle of the room sick. doing. the real news. when a loved one is murder it's natural to seek the death penalty for the murderer i would prefer and it means to live the death penalty just because they think that's the way or think the right thing research shows that for every nine execution. one convict is found innocent the idea that we were executing innocent people is terrifying the is just new leader hasn't been there we're even many victims' families want the death penalty to be abolished the respect they get jealous here is because that's what murder victim's family is what that's going to give them
4:48 pm
peace that's going to give them justice and we come in and say. not quite enough we've been through this this isn't their wake.
4:49 pm

4:51 pm
she is carrying a week's supply of water on her head this is from the tanker. logos . and they're out in that room along the muscle twenty nine months along the new england in luanda out of wood and i finally was the most out of date and got up early now hansei but i left on thousand and keep
4:52 pm
a point on. the result of that runaway ad that i've been going or this it is the family and the weird ok i'm in the city the out a little bit looser the bradley family near the pond crazy and i have to be abit get the net savvy i don't get a hoodie. but the best part is that he really would appear that you think of any party and found that out in longer any. people living in india as hearts and average regions figured out a way of collecting monsoon waters in specially created pools they use them until the next rainy season but the monsoon has been late for the past two years and only water was used up a long time ago. i'm like oh yeah we're going to go down by the you're born you're going to go neither do i bob with. glory wave i gave world wide i got more like you all made out of i would go. you know i go there you're probably my mother my
4:53 pm
brother. there used to be a pond here but the local farmers have built mounds around their fields to keep the water for themselves rather than let it run into the common reservoir. and so the reservoir which is used to serve the village all year round is now only hall full by the time the hottest spring months arrive it's already dried out. she doesn't have anyone to look after her baby at home so she takes him to work with her. with other women she's working on deepening the pond to collect water once it finally rains. and one hundred twenty rupees a day. they need this money to buy water. the villages have been waiting for over
4:54 pm
a months for the big rains to come and for free water to start forming from the skies but only in vain. barack. obama. can. only. look. i think it's a kind of heat stroke sorry. if this. is. really our day it's one of the other be able to lolly it with a view if you can get on it is that. if you look at it is if. you keep it you keep your. social with it if it won't.
4:55 pm
i think about. oh my god. oh. my god. yes. there are now i'm saying no to. me. but. you. know what do. your past. people. find.
4:56 pm
so. there's. the sunday. you can find out. oh don't i and i go i. got first wife was spending far too much time getting water and she didn't have any energy left to take care of the kids so he decided to take a second wife he reasoned that his first wife would be able to mind the children and keep house while the second would be free to fetch water. but his second wife turned out to be a sickly woman unfit for water duty so his plan failed this is how the third wife appeared on the scene. but.
4:57 pm
the in the in the every morning the three wives set out on a water fishing trip and it's a lengthy business the line is long and it's best to be among the first to show up the unique the way these days bunce why it's on to square because they used to be so they have some queuing to do the i would out and then i might. gather a lot of. god go i go out oh i lot of thought and feeling felt so awful i thought i'm not for. it. you know when you get something so. far that what i did i. was going to die. that it could
4:58 pm

4:59 pm
think. once there. was. this water in the house. twist. problems or worse situation a guy you can hit back because i mean because of people going off what they mean is we have a little. bit of you remember maybe you can sort of the man who suffered the local because of the gulf will play a little bit of. time here usually most of these are who funded. the snow but are being really still bundled up. when he started growing or interviews and he's out of them still when you school. that's the idea that. he is this lucky. and this first year you were. gone.
5:00 pm
but it loud i'm going to go get to get it with me they get it it didn't get out of line get more they got to be livid about wanting what i wanted i don't want to. model but it is about the. conditions up like this you want to talk about that i think is a little like a play on the one i did i look up us and i get the ticket out of there with my life that i have a mother that the. lads i want to look at
5:01 pm
a static up and that was up until until i get now across that up apple a mouth that lamont has got so that the car the family that out of the co-op and then. when the rains finally arrived in two thousand and fifteen they were to skin is to provide the state with water. in two thousand and sixteen the monsoon season was late again. but of course this isn't the only problem the green revolution is what they call the agricultural boom enjoyed by india several decades ago new land was contemplated new technologies were introduced the flows were is the first yielding outstanding crops but apparently now it's time to pay back full list explosive growth among other things with shrinking water supplies water shortages have become a national catastrophe. and
5:02 pm

5:05 pm
we have no idea what safe is doing on the vacation but she will be back on it in september. when a loved one is murdered it's natural to seek the death penalty for the murder i would prefer it be no limit death penalty just because i think that's the fair thing the right thing research shows that for every nine executions one convict despond dennison the idea that we were executing innocent people is terrifying there's just no really hasn't been that we hear even many of the dems families want the death penalty to be abolished the reason we have to keep the death penalty here is because that's what murder victims' families want to that's going to give them peace that's going to give them justice and we come in saying. not quite enough
5:06 pm
we've been through this this isn't their way. in a world of big partisan movies a lot of us and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door on the path and 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 for watching closely watching the hawks.

5:13 pm
a forest but for many centuries people exploited the land same panteley that the former abundance turned into a barren desert however the people didn't quit this waterless school. but instead adapted to living here they figured out how to collect rainwater and make the supply last throughout the year and they lived like this for a long time but over the last decade everything has changed. because human beings have been in the sea. bottom and they are not. themselves thought of. this or just on this. they forget they are not
5:14 pm
believing on there. this is the bottom a lot of this is not about you know there is a line of it how much water you supply. but it's only. good. by those. channels dug under politicians orders eventually dried up the water tower was built by the government on functioning and only the recipe was constructed using ancient technologies are still surprisingly in use. this belongs to.

5:21 pm
trying to stop african migrants from entering spanish territory. in from right around the world this hour welcome to moscow and to our team international my names you know neal our top story there's been plenty of talk this wednesday over donald trump's presidency which now appears to be in a precarious position less than two years and two of the president's former associates have pleaded guilty to federal crimes it's put trump in hot water his ex lawyer has implicated him as the orchestrator of campaign and financial violations
5:22 pm
and the media is already getting in a spin over his possible impeachment. going to be impeached with this i think the beginning has to be set and mark right now and wolf we're in a watergate moment there is i think a lot for the president to fear impeachment then listen you discuss the mainstream media discourse today it seems became a little more realistic for trump although it's not exactly what you might think nefarious links the russian agents or collusion with the kremlin something far more mundane as his former lawyer michael cohen pleaded guilty to buying can tax fraud he also admitted guilt in campaign finance charges allegedly paying off former mistresses of trump for their silence on the orders of the now president in a double whammy trump's former campaign manager pulled out of fort was also found guilty of numerous personal fraud charges potentially facing years in prison but what about those russian links after all that's what the attorney general
5:23 pm
authorized special counsel miller to dig up coordination between the russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of president donald trump they found buying ten tax fraud evasion lies to the f.b.i. hush money but no russian collusion fake news or the right here in which we got our pick. where is the goal loser you know there's no looking for collusion where is there to lose your finds a delusion it's a day of embarrassment for trump and bad timing too with midterm elections approaching and democrats looking for any i mean if they can find the president though will view this as a vindication a year and a half later after several investigations the russian leak story still seems dead in the water although who knows what else the ongoing investigation will find the fact that they haven't come up with anything and that the all they've managed to
5:24 pm
claw back with paul metaphor is misfire ling's and some bank fraud charges in. the same with cohen in violation of campaign. regulations finance regulations that proves there is no russian collusion or they've wasted two years to find fairly pedestrian violations sure if you went into any of the campaigns including hillary clinton's and spent two years with an investigation team in the grand juries i'm sure you'd find a lot more than ms filings and maybe some violations of campaign finance laws well donald trump has given his first direct response to his former associates allegations against him the us president went on twitter praising former campaign chief paul munna ford for not breaking under pressure while at the same time accusing x. lawyer michael cohen of making up stories in order to get a plea deal. russian president vladimir putin has slammed washington's latest
5:25 pm
sanctions against moscow as being country productive he made the remarks during a joint press conference with the finnish president in sochi. it's a song regarding the sanctions those actions are counterproductive and meaningless especially when it comes to a country like russia it's not just about the us president's position it's about the position of the so-called establishment the ruling class in broader terms i hope the realisation that this policy has no future will come one day and we will cooperate in a normal fashion. the first batch of the latest u.s. sanctions against russia are set to come into force at this whedon's they know they focus on exports of american made elektra next used in the early article on space industries moscow ses the measures will not affect the russian public when november moscow could face a second wave of restrictions described by a us state department official as more draconian this could include more limits on
5:26 pm
trade and banking and cuts to diplomatic relations the measures under consideration may also be russia's state earline from entering u.s. airspace or washington ses the new sanctions are in response to the poisoning of a russian double agent and his daughter in britain earlier this your investigation into the case is still ongoing and no hard evidence of russia's involvement has been made public besides that congress hearings have focused on other questionable accusations thrown at moscow to. ongoing efforts to interfere in our sacrosanct election process seize and those of our allies are just some of the unacceptable behaviors of the putin regime putin wants to break apart the american republic russia's attempts to interfere in the two thousand and sixteen u.s. presidential election are well and widely known russia has undertaken a campaign of malign activities in its attempt to compete with us our allies and our partners and that's a two thirty one gives us more tools with which to respond to the bread and

brazenness of russia's malign conduct demands a firm and vigorous response our actions are imposing an unprecedented level of financial pressure on those supporting the kremlin's malign agenda and on he said stairs of the russian economy a recent gallup poll meanwhile indicates fifty eight percent of americans think it's more important to improve relations with russia instead of taking strong steps against moscow which is backed by just over a third of those asked veteran journalist jill noria believes u.s. politicians are using the so-called russian threat as a destruction from domestic problems the whole thing is quite a conundrum for me why they continue to try to politicize this issue and use sanctions of some way to help them domestically except that they're trying to cover up their own shortcomings their own short changing of the american people and to try the blame our divisions and our economic crisis and our racial divide here on
5:28 pm
and on an outside power which is the oldest trick in the book going back to the beginning of civilization if the democrats lose or do not do as well as they hope in the november election having used rusher again as their as their main talking point they may have to readjust and realize that the progressive wing of the party is growing and that the american people don't give a damn about russia and that they have to finally address the real issues here and leave this russia issue alone and get back to normal relations with this country that is that it's imperative for. for world peace essentially. trouble has broken on the border of a spanish enclave in morocco where hundreds of african migrants attempted to storm the coastal city of so waited in their efforts to reach europe the resulting clashes saw police officers attacked with us it. was me i was. shocked when i found i don't jam i was

5:30 pm
happens everything is done to protect the refugees they always have an excuse because of their difficult past many refugees and sold to threaten the stuff but nobody says anything on condition of anonymity workers also complained to local media that a colleague was attacked with a chair leg when we reached out to police brussels for clarification they confer and they'd been called by the center but stopped short of giving any details we. yes indeed we have already intervened at this center the response teams were called three times over the past week in situations like these there are issues either between migrants or between the migrants and the organization itself they do not respect the rules or that sort of thing and that sparks conflict. the ngo running the facility insists they haven't received any complains from the workers at the center and says it fulfills its mission well. i've been working on the ground for
5:31 pm
three years now and i really truly have never seen anyone attack a woman they're only asli mentally ill people who insult others then the tension rises it's true but i have never heard any threats this belgium case isn't an isolated one a volunteer group here in france that helped migrants claimed they had faced similar issues from the beginning our mission was to serve hot drinks and bread and we've done this for twenty months every day during the last month we started questioning our mission because we don't want to volunteer to be put in danger they have nothing not even tents to sleep on the ground and sometimes woken up by the police early in the morning they kick them and used tear gas to move them so when they come to us they're stressed and nervous twice last week we had to stop serving food to let the tension calm down this is something new for us so yes we're stopping officially some sixty two thousand refugees have crossed the mediterranean to arrive in europe this year it's not quite the crisis numbers of twenty fifteen
5:32 pm
but the problem still exists and isn't going anywhere soon. police in germany say they have for a possible terror plot in berlin arrested a suspect of russian origin our europe correspondent peter all over told me more a lot earlier. prosecutors have confirmed that a thirty one year old man has been named as is the standard protocol with just his first name and the first letter of his last name as markham et al e c has been arrested on suspicion of plotting a terror attack now police and counter-terror offices raided an apartment in berlin on wednesday morning now the operation on wednesday was intended to both arrest the thirty one year old man but also to determine the location of the explosives that were believed to have been stored in that apartment back in twenty sixteen that is
5:33 pm
part of a wider investigation into a twenty two year old man in france in conjunction with french authorities he's been named as claymont b. who was arrested last year on suspicion of plotting a terror attack now the two men are believed to have been planning an attack together and that they stockpiled large quantities of explosives in the flats that was searched today in berlin there's no word on what their target their intended target was but what prosecutors have said is that the two men were planning an attack that was intended to cause the maximum amount of deaths now that attack was foiled inadvertently by the police after it seems that the two became spooked after the amount of police attention that elisi was getting that prompted the thirty one year old to remain in berlin but his twenty two year old believed conspirator to flee arkan and eventually into france where he was arrested early see will be
5:34 pm
before a federal judge on thursday where he's expected to have the charges read out against him. still ahead one of the world's most recognizable sporting bronze is facing heavy criticism over the release of new training here we go into it into about after this. you know world of big partisan route. and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that made stream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door on the bath 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 for watching closely watching the
5:35 pm
hawks. with lawmakers manufacture consent to the public will. when the ruling classes protect themselves. with the final merry go round lifts and be the one percent. we can all middle of the room sick. fifteen minutes past seven pm here in moscow welcome back sports giant nyc is facing backlash in the u.k. after releasing a controversial winter sports garment with some suggesting the company is cashing
5:36 pm
in on gang culture the balaklava in question has an attachment can be quote clipped away for easy transit as the suggest and it also has a pocket that some say can be used to holster a weapon there's been an angry reaction online. there's multiple stabbings every day around the country a massive gang problem that's getting worse by the day and night he has released this seventy pound balaklava are they dumb nike are using a black guy to promote about a club with straps and buckets where there is blood there is money now nike are endorsing gun and knife crime as well as enforcing racial profiling well done why exactly are you promoting a baloch lover in july if this was in winter it least it's hard to criticize well just expanding on the gang culture aspect of this there have been thirty five thousand recorded knife crimes in britain over the past two years the highest a month since data became available and more than
5:37 pm
a fifth of those arrested for carrying a knife are teenagers or younger among those brushing nyc for the controversial headgear is social media comedian white you already posted this on instagram. listen to me tonight nike whatever we offer pronounce it listen to me because right now it looks like you're targeting the young people who are involved in junk and with these recent studies that we've been seeing right now in london this is definitely something we know are serious people come right know with evil but take what you what i need to explain it you know and i don't do it. or we give whitey already a call ourselves he described the balaklava military looking adults whether it is appropriate. but even so you get in the lots of these killings that have been happening recently i like ten minutes away from my hoax they came up with the wrong timing with this not only that is this something appropriate they should be making
5:38 pm
because yes this by the two of us we noticed by the club is right there's many stories you can go into and by about. this one just seemed to be more military look it i don't think this was a great idea you should get stuff why would we should just upgrade why you have better we think what are you hiding from us army. well here's some of the reaction we also got among londoners. could be sort of a sportsman like you claimed or. could be also a terrorist my immediate reaction is terrorists first so it's a bit scary. but at the same time as i do scary it might be just sports equipment to find a menacing no no the problem is i'm from canada so all i think of is someone being warmed to me it could be a good winter outfit. is not appealing to me at all i don't think you should be allowed in banks and. it's not just so much that it's
5:39 pm
like what's going on. is as if these could have i don't know you can saw it was so severe them with weapons as weapons guns bullets something like why the trying to cover the faggots like. i don't see why you watch. you don't want to have a face out you know inviting is not going to make you to buy you know the you know the branded name i don't think it's really a fashion police i think they might have changed colors that are still in charge of . but i think it's good to. make a profit on the back trying to make it was encouraged more gangsterism stuff you think you know of course there's nothing to do with nike if they don't get it from nike they get it from something else if nothing else oh my god what i wear seen around with people wearing. all this is what the company itself say's the product
5:40 pm
is available in multiple markets around the world. does not condone or encourage gang culture in any way nyc has also remove the sold out item from its website. moving on now an american journalist has published a new investigation exposing washington's efforts to interfere with the internal affairs of countries around the world and undermine rival governments blumenthal attended an event organized by the national endowment for democracy it's a nonprofit n.g.o.s founded in one thousand nine hundred eighty three on this supported by both the democratic and republican parties currently it operates in close to one hundred nations. the national endowment for democracy say's its work aims to help non-governmental groups promote democracy blumenthal couldn't help but notice some parallels there i covered the ceremony because these organizations are doing exactly what congress accuses russia funded media outlets control farms of
5:41 pm
doing in the united states they interfere in other country's politics and with foreign money. the only difference is they do it openly and in the name of spreading freedom. activists out the meeting were quite clear on their agenda as they've been sales explained. once again. i'd like to express our sincere gratitude to buy pot of. the poor and also u.s. congresspeople as well and u.s. citizens eventually we are doing this work with the u.s. citizens tax americans have no idea that they're funding an organization that's explicitly dedicated to meddling in other countries affairs interfering in elections toppling often democratically elected leaders and spreading public relations campaigns to sow chaos against countries that resist washington's agenda but here you have kind of open acknowledgement from this korean activist who is
5:42 pm
behind the transitional justice working group which is responsible for a lot of what congress states and knows about north korea's suppose it human rights violations so basically the united states is paying for its own findings to ramp up sanctions and hostility against north korea and what's really interesting about this event that i attended in capitol hill is that it was timed to coincide with the trump him summit it was essentially a u.s. government backed event undermining a u.s. government initiative to foster peace between north and south korea and that to me seems like almost and then a form of internal interference you think that the national endowment for democracy . if there is a peace treaty that they should cease funding civil society groups that seek a transition or regime change and i think i don't know that that's what they do but i do know that they promote human rights they and i mean for example if russia were
5:43 pm
funding civil society groups inside the u.s. and that going to need to put to work they do i think it's pretty obvious i mean two things are going on there first of all you have. these activists and organizations that are funded by the national endowment for democracy. see the u.s. regime change arm in south korea who are dedicated to regime change in north korea really worried that the money's going to stop rolling in from washington if there is a peace treaty so basically conflict is an entire industry and it's part of this fake human rights and democracy promotion industry so pelosi wanted to duck that issue and then the other issue she wants to duck is the sheer hypocrisy of supporting an organization that funds civil society groups and opposition media to topple governments and so chaos and sovereign countries while complaining that for example this network r t does that in the united states and that's exactly what nancy
5:44 pm
pelosi and her colleagues in congress do every day when confronted with the issue there's nothing they can do but deflect and run away as palosi did. i don't think what we do today was done covertly twenty five years ago by the cia it's even more the case since the color revolution model has been introduced. and what the ne does is what the cia might have done to salvador allende inchy lay but they do so overtly and therefore avoid a lot of the scrutiny from congress it looks like they're funding democracy and legitimate protests but they're directing their resources exclusively against countries that resist washington's economic and political agenda it's an extension of the cia but it seems like it's pushing human rights and things that americans can get behind and that's why they receive so little scrutiny from the public it's very clever actually you're tuned in to our key international know this august
5:45 pm
marks the sixty fifth anniversary of the u.s. sponsored coup in iran in moments watching the hawks gets to grips with the implications of that week. i've been saying the numbers mean something they matter the us is over twenty trillion dollars in debt more than ten white collar crimes happen each day. eighty five percent of global wealth you 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 trade per second per second and bitcoin rose to twenty thousand dollars. china is building
5:46 pm
a two point one billion dollar a i industrial park but don't let the numbers overwhelm. the only number you need to remember in one one business show you can't afford to miss the one and only.
5:47 pm
ratings and salutation. on the state of u.s. foreign policy john bolton the current national security advisor recently lamented the we once had a capacity for clandestine efforts to overthrow governments i wish we could get those back well mustache johnny is probably roasting model weenies and popping champagne bottles in the styles of this week as one hundred because august nineteenth marks the sixty fifth anniversary of one of the most notorious acts of meddling in twentieth century history the cia sponsored planned and instigated coup in iran after years of being labeled conspiracy theorist quackery in two thousand and thirteen the cia finally admitted its responsibility along with britain's m i six for orchestrating the nine hundred fifty three coup good saw the removal of the
5:48 pm
democratically elected iranian prime minister mohammad mosaddegh from power and replacing him with the brutal and violent shaw muhammad of the lobby all of this of course in the name of protecting western oil interests you see move that could committed that most heinous of international crimes he he nationalized the british anglo iranian oil company horrible horrible vicious and evil of him given his country's most valuable natural resources back to his people i mean as crazy. tragically the one hundred fifty three crew and agreed just act of war and superpower meddling is still causing blowback to this day in fact this week so iran unveil a new domestically manufactured biter jet in response to the united states crippling sanctions and president trump's chest thumping hostility towards the country or any and president rouhani stated at the end bailing the enemy should see how expensive an invasion of iran would be why does not the u.s.
5:49 pm
wage a military attack on us because of our power you see this fear of u.s. aggression is rooted in that coup of fifty three despite despite what recent ban. affleck movies teach us about modern world history you see there is no such thing as what about it's only context when you are watching. but if you treat the. real thing. as the bottom. like you that i got. the. welcome aboard watching the harks i am tyrrel for the tour and i'm happy for a while it's so yeah. many years later here we are and people wonder why i
5:50 pm
ran a such a big deal why why is there all this hostility why was the nuclear deal in place why did they work so hard to have that and why does that matter event that we just sort of quit the whole thing and move done a lot of history a lot of history sixty five year anniversary and i remember when you would talk about us involvement in the removal of the crew and people would be like that is crazy conspiracy theory talk how dare you mention that we would never ever do anything like that and the cia would never do anything like the number of our intelligence services and community they would never visit all the seventeen of them or was it for some of them. but then in twenty thirteen they finally admitted yeah we were pretty much we orchestrated that we did that they would know it's out of themselves here but it worked and was so creepy about it is they treated back
5:51 pm
read and look you know they still do today they treat it as a normal part of like foreign diplomacy the formerly excise section of internal history entitled the battle for. iran was really supportive thirteen and it literally says the military coup that overthrew most of the of his national front cabinet was carried out under cia direction as an act of u.s. foreign policy conceived been approved at the highest levels of government yet even eisenhower signed off on this one why just act a foreign policy doesn't matter that's mostly on meddling that's an act of war it is his foreign policy raising him saying no no you elected this guy as your leader we don't like him so we're going to put him back and i mean just got it into perspective what i'm justin trudeau down here in the canadian army of came in and said you know what trump that's it dragged him out of office and said no we're going to put somebody else and go put out would be ludicrous right it were any if any other country tried to do that to united states it would be especially if they
5:52 pm
had to be ability to control the media the way the cia correct yes so here's the thing about it wasn't just. controlling what was going on in the ground in iran you have to control the narrative back home and so in all the august seventeenth of one nine hundred fifty three the c.i. a there was a memorandum that revealed. how they were able to sort of trick the public into thinking certain things were of a certain way that weren't entirely true in that memo they stated state has passed the word to v.o.a. which is voice of america and instructed its own press relations people to avoid using such terminology as plot etc. you know but we don't do. you get voice of america which is you know government funded us government funded outlet to purposely make sure that the narrative didn't make it look like
5:53 pm
a coup d'etat to make it look as if it just magically happened in the us didn't have any involvement in it and the central intelligence agency which i don't know when they became an arm of the military. they're suddenly going on the internet i think and then we know later. oh ramón the united states this is not the beginning nor the end of this issue oh no it's because when we see it years later and there's a lot more very foul things that keep happening all the time yeah you know what thomas carruthers of the carnegie endowment for international peace actually argues today in that same sort of tone is that. unlike russian electoral matter meddling u.s. democracy promotion does not favor particular candidates or undercut the technical integrity for elections all my whole. distance exercise their basic political and civil rights. i think that's kind of crazy but i think what honestly you can't end this segment about iran with no mention what happened to iranian oil company which
5:54 pm
is what all of this was over that they were going to private they basically nationalize their oil that later became be peaceful marriage and if that would have stayed in iraq. we never would have had the b.p. oil spill probably. in a rare event u.s. politics someone is actually being held accountable for their decisions while in office on monday this week michigan judge david goggins ordered the state health director neck lion to stand trial for his actions during the flint water crisis line is accused of involuntary manslaughter for failing to alert the public of a legion errs disease outbreak that is believed to have led to the deaths of two citizens artie's actually banks as more. nicholai in michigan state health director is being accused of failing to alert the public to flynn's water crisis why in phases involuntary manslaughter charges in the deaths of two men who died from a legionnaires disease outbreak in flint he also faces charges on misconduct in office
5:55 pm
and the willful neglect of duty lyons is denying any wrongdoing however judge david gergen says these deaths could have been prevented if the outbreak had been publicly known despite lyons pending trial michigan governor rick snyder is sticking by him snyder issued a statement saying he has quote full faith and confidence and will remain on duty. as unless convicted of a crime after a full trial by a jury of his peers snyder and lyon announced the outbreak in january twenty sixth team although lyon knew there were legionnaires he says being reported months earlier experts say the outbreak was caused by the flint water crisis back in two thousand and fourteen however attorneys for alliance say there isn't enough evidence linking look christ says to the legionnaires outbreak the crisis began on april twenty fifth two thousand and fourteen when the state emergency manager
5:56 pm
decided to switch the city's water source from the detroit water system to the flint river and order to cut costs during the summer months residents began complaining about a foul smell as well as side effects they experienced after drinking and bathing in the one. many residents were then faced with a legionnaires outbreak and in the months to follow many officials would have faced charges for their role of not properly addressing the crisis lyon is the highest ranking michigan official charge and an investigation led by the attorney general's office fourteen other current and former state and local officials have been charged with crimes related to either the legionnaires outbreak or lead in the water four of them have agreed to mr mueller plea deals while the remaining cases are still active unlike these other employees the lions and one other official have been allowed to remain on the job despite facing criminal charges and washington
5:57 pm
ashley banks art. or you talk about one of the worst black eyes in the history of the many black eyes that we've had. to be up there and our federal government's complete lack of reaction or as if well it's your problem that is what really got me you know it's that thing of going went where was obama where were you where were the progressives where were those people who say no we're going to do something about those i'm a nothing happened nobody of second responsibility that's all that passed the bar the bar pass a budget and you know they wouldn't give them any money to fix they would give money to fix that what's interesting is people are hungry for people to not to take the fall to be held accountable for their failure as government officials and in fact when the judge announced this decision there was a woman in the chambers who actually yelled out yes yes yes they're there that hungry for somebody to be held accountable for what happened yeah you know. like
5:58 pm
they're saying there was at least ninety cases of legionnaires' occurred and. genesee county including twelve and more than half the people have this common thread that they had spent time in the clear in hospital with what was on the floor a water source. and that's probably what's going to be argued in this trial you know all writers and that's what lions attorney is going to argue with that he didn't mesh in a war and that's what we've heard again and again that he dition didn't initially warns that ascends about the possibility because he didn't know for sure and they were a little confused about where the legionnaire status is coming from which i'm sure is they didn't want to say it was from the water and it was related to that here's my problem you have a duty as a public official that when there's legionnaires disease going around you tell people i don't care what what caused it i don't care who is alien from mars it is yes still what people know that they might be at risk of contract and we generic and it's kind of the first step in accountability attorneys general spokesman
5:59 pm
angela baie told the media. we're not looking to as a what are lost we're looking at today as the first step in that except for justice in the mom's kids dad's flint and that's important because the flint so it still doesn't have clean water and you got to take the first step of justice through art as we go to break card watchers don't let us don't forget to let us know what you think of the topics we've covered a facebook and twitter poll shows that are to you dot com coming up prisoners across the united states have gone on strike today we talked to prison reform act this time and steal their demand stay tuned to watch.
6:00 pm
when a loved one is murder it's natural to seek the death penalty for the murderer i would prefer it be known to the death penalty just because i think that's the fair thing the right thing research shows that for every nine executions one convict just found innocent the idea that we were executing innocent people was terrifying news just no really hasn't been that we hear even many victims' families want the death penalty to be abolished the reason we have to keep the death penalty here is because that's what murder victim's families what that's going to give them peace that's going to give them justice and we come in saying. not quite enough we've been through this this isn't the way.
6:01 pm
to the financial survival job today with all the money laundering first to visit this fitness industry different. oh good it's a good start well we have our three banks all set up here maybe something in europe something in america something overseas if it came and i live to do all these banks are complicit in the tough talk pursued a softer did with all its a camera to do some serious military ok let's see how we did well we've got home got a nice luxury watch for max and for stacy old beautiful jewelry and how about. calogero a bill again for a match you know what money laundering is highly illegal for a bunch of guys of course. to protect him he said he took me up a bit. in the. yard she will leave you to sleep so you'll be talking to you. know that i'm going to. cut out the girl that i got
6:02 pm
out here it will leave immediately each other. and that a lot of what i think about karma is good but i'm about the same as art when i was up the money into the magazine but i'm going to. tell you how long live the life my mother come up. to say please i'll leave this there we go back to the room is a long. long way for you maybe for. other people more go home was on the road from our. gut about that was yeah i. guess. so. i began to smash your camera. roughly once they showed some leave for them. to.
6:03 pm
shoot your own two videos this summer with the broccoli string attached. why don't more on string i don't rightly don't t.v. . they say the manufacturing is dead in the us but then our prisons are alive and well see in the united states more than sixty thousand incarcerated citizens are forced to work for unicorn a government owned manufacturing business that relies almost entirely on forced prison labor they make military uniforms license plates. mattresses food service linens firearms target's office furniture and even provide data services unit or pays in made between twenty three sums and one dollar and fifty cents per hour for
6:04 pm
their work at the california department of corrections bragged on twitter in july that they had more than two thousand volunteer inmates firefighters including fifty eight youth offenders battling wire wildfire flames throughout california and those inmates fighting those fires received one dollar per hour. and if this were any other country would be calling for sanctions but in the us this kind of slave labor is actually protected by our constitution section one of the thirteenth amendment the us constitution which was ratified and adopted in december of eight hundred sixty five states neither slavery nor involuntary servitude servitude except as a punishment for crime where of the party shall have been duly convicted shall exist within the united states or any place subjected to their jurisdiction so what's happening here folks is that our constitution sadly allows for people to be treated like slaves as long as they were convicted of a crime any crime and since private prison corporations or their shareholders are
6:05 pm
profiting on the forced labor of citizens within our correctional facilities well slavery is alive and well and heavily subsidized by the u.s. government and today prisoners and at least seventeen states across the nation will be refusing to participate in slave labor by joining the national prison strike starting august twenty first we were joined earlier by kevin steele prison reform activists working with the incarcerated workers organizing committee to tell us more about the strike and their demands. the prison is from olga's twenty first to some of. those diseases chose a specific clue for the sober some of. the do you post the way he was to go to prison a prison goes all the. time i'm over the sort of version of the article. so we chose those to lose because those who remember us of who vote on the prison. really expose this to go as long as possible we're going to try to hold it up as long as
6:06 pm
possible as over the next to get the dawn of the war. on the roads. of whom the roads from prison those. little progress to be. with looking for the truth. to be looking for the prison litigation not to be rescinded those are just a few of them is that the put it. to me as those calls from local prisons. one of the things they came up and the in this prison strike and looking at the issues is essentially prison labor and the riot when you look at the ryan south carolina was a perfect example of why we need reform in our prisons and it was just the tip of the iceberg but we didn't see that sort of. outcry from the mainstream media outrage over the conditions they were in the prisoners are standing up but it's it
6:07 pm
is revealing that the really sad truth that chattel slavery never won a way in the united states in in a sense can you explain a little bit about how how did our prison system become a source of cheap labor and why is that being allowed under the constitution. so. a lot of. where the prison guards are actually allowed to go on they could stop the virus from happening they could've started from leaders who they tried i. believe this country this country with good or slavery so when slavery was a so-called the power. they had found the film really is to continue this cheap
6:08 pm
labor to continue to build a nation so they were going to jump. out of this segment of the slavery in different forms and that if these four were able to legally keep on this and keep going cheap labor continue to grow the country and the masses you have these big corporations such as star. various corporations. for cheap labor but there's no war there's no outcry against these big corporations so that's a problem we have a strategy and i think it's just i think it's. our president's largest donald trump in the past. haven't just all the this the slavery in this country. and we need we need to make some changes that. allows they've got to be the country that needs
6:09 pm
to be. it's easy for them to kind of turn their backs on the are the prisoners of our system because well they committed the crime they're there for a reason we can do whatever we want to them they're a blight on society those are all the kind of excuses that are used in the process of those excuses you you forget that we're talking about human beings whether guilty or unjustly prison or whatever we're still talking about human beings at the end of the day and they all share basic rights regardless of crimes committed now once a person enters the prison system in the united states they never truly leave that why is it so important for prisoners to retain their right specially the right to vote once they've served their time once they're let free you know why is the right to vote so important that we shouldn't be taking that away just because someone's convicted of a felony. yes so it's not it's not just to game packed advice when you're free so-called free is to actually give these. men
6:10 pm
a woman rights to vote their president they're not animals they committed they made a. misstep in a law so that makes them not human the law that makes them no longer american citizens. that's something as with. we can see people. in the present to not be american citizens no longer when they come home they have to pay taxes they had to do everything outside of actually participate in. the vote which is so when this and this zero point that we give these. men a woman right to vote while their president and the laws that has these. it is so important to get them devoted because we were in the situation.
6:11 pm
if we have more devoted. these problems in the local go through these problems and we have more people to vote. vote as we could do is we closer to the most people in the world so that. there's millions of people those that can vote. and that's a big problem in this country that's so amazing a point i never thought about the you know what just because you go into jail doesn't mean you're suddenly lose your basic rights of being a u.s. citizen that's a great that's a really fun turning point was a really fantastic point one of the things that we've seen over the years of why it's gotten worse and worse and worse when you think about it should've gotten better and i think should have gotten better was decades of bad policy from the federal government capitol hill and presidents. are prisons. are aren't a rehabilitation centers they are not places where someone goes to understand maybe
6:12 pm
the mistakes they've made make different decisions because we've taken away every single opportunity for people to learn and it's become a political talking point when it is he's almost a little bit about policies like you mentioned the prison litigation reform act the sentencing reform act how those things stripped prisoners of basic human rights and why is something like how do we get past this. the policies that place on prisoners is. the litigation reform. this foam. grievance the stuff to give to go directly to the fertile. someone the society the you have to go to defense because they think your grievance is not. so they will know they don't want to waste the time of the federal to get involved in your grievance so you had to go to the state you had to go to the facility that you were in a different process just to get through the course system but i get that you're
6:13 pm
already denied. so that's something that's really. sad that we could. place these policies in place he then slave people as a. human being is that that's the biggest thing about this trade is to treat them as if the moon. we're treating them as if. they're less than human and that's something that needs to be addressed but alas it is and the policies need to be changed and in order for the powers the change it takes us. we are more prone to lock a vote vote. it takes the was as our that can vote. pressure to these lawmakers see where they stay there. say listen we're not going to back you if you will make this change so it takes us out here to put our vote over to put a vote for place to say listen this is what we need we need to go vote you know i
6:14 pm
want to i want to ask you what do you think is the biggest misunderstanding that people have about. prisoners incarcerated for such a role you were incarcerated vidual what is that biggest misunderstanding the people view this strike they need remember when they're seeing these prisoners fighting for their rights. the biggest miss the biggest misunderstood thing about prison is that they all of. more through it all they don't have feel they don't have a heart and that they deserve. the four they deserve the target is given their all we're all guilty of that they convicted for something i was far from true and they're religious now are worthy of being of. service and are something

6:20 pm
i'm. donald trump's presidency appears on shaky ground after two former associates phone guilty of numerous federal crimes the special counsel probe and mission launched to investigate alleged collusion with russia has so far only exposed to fraud and election campaign violations where is their cronies or you know they're still looking for closure where is the comb over to find some killers. also this hour russia slams newly enforced u.s. sanctions as counterproductive and meaningless and is vowing to respond congress is also mulling over even more aggressive measures against moscow could hit later this year also ahead.
6:21 pm
seven police officers suffer acid burns after trying to stop hundreds of african migrants from entering spanish territory and morocco. this is our two international coming to you live from the russian capital where it's just turned eight pm welcome to the program. there's been plenty of talk this wednesday over donald trump's presidency which now appears to be in a precarious position less than two years and two of the president's former associates have been found guilty of fraud. for crimes it's put trump in hot water and his ex were has implicated him as the orchestrator of campaign and financial violations and the media is already getting in a spend over his possible impeachment could he be impeached with this i think the beginning has to be set and mark right now and we're in
6:22 pm
a watergate moment but there is i think a lot for the president to fear impeachment endlessly discussed in mainstream media discourse today it seems became a little more realistic for trump although it's not exactly what you might think farris links the russian agents or collusion with the kremlin something far more mundane as his former lawyer michael cohen pleaded guilty to by income tax fraud he also admitted guilt in campaign finance charges allegedly paying off former mistresses of trump for their silence on the orders of the now president in a double whammy trump's former campaign manager pulled out of fort was also found guilty of numerous personal fraud charges potentially facing years in prison but what about those russian links after all that's what the attorney general authorized special counsel miller to dig up coordination between the russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of president donald trump they found buying ten tax fraud evasion lies to the f.b.i.
6:23 pm
hush money but no russian collusion they could do the right here in which we got our. where is the closure you know there's no looking for collusion where is there to lose your lives or to lose you it's a day of embarrassment for trump and bad timing too with midterm elections approaching and democrats looking for any i mean if they can find the president though will view this as a vindication a year and a half later after several investigations the russian leaks story still seems dead in the water although who knows what else the ongoing of us to go. will find the fact that they haven't come up with anything and that the all they've managed to claw back with paul metaphor is mis filings and some bank fraud charges in the same with cohen in violation of campaign. regulations finance regulations that proves
6:24 pm
there is no russian collusion or they've wasted two years to find fairly pedestrian violations sure if you went into any of the campaigns including hillary clinton's and spent two years with an investigation team in the grand juries i'm sure you'd find a lot more than this filings and maybe some violations of campaign finance laws donald trump has given his first direct response to his former associates allegations against him the us president went on twitter praising former campaign chief paul man a fort for not breaking under the pressure while the same time accusing michael cohen of making up stories in order to get a plea deal. the russian president vladimir putin has slammed washington's latest sanctions against moscow as counterproductive he made the remarks during a joint press conference with the finnish president in sochi. because it's a song regarding the sanctions those actions are counterproductive and meaningless
6:25 pm
especially when it comes to a country like russia so it's not just about the us president's position it's about the position of the so-called establishment the ruling class in broader terms i hope the realisation that this policy has no future will come one day we will cooperate in a normal fashion the first batch of the latest u.s. sanctions against russia are set to come into force this wednesday they focus on exports of american made electronics used in the aeronautical and space industries moscow says the measures won't affect the russian public in november moscow could face a second wave of restrictions described by a u.s. state department official as more draconian this could include more limits on trade and banking and cuts to diplomatic relations the measures under consideration may also ban russia's state airline from entering u.s. airspace washington says the new sanctions are in response to the poisoning of a russian double agent and his daughter in britain earlier this year the investigation into the case is still ongoing and no hard evidence of russia's
6:26 pm
involvement has been made public. now let's see how this is going down in the u.s. killed in new york for us killed what do americans make of this latest action against russia. well if you watch the recent hearings on capitol hill american politicians or rather al spoke out about what they think about these new moves against russia let's review some of what we recently heard the. ongoing efforts to interfere in our sacrosanct election process seize and those of our allies are just some of the unacceptable behaviors of the putin regime putin wants to break apart the american republic russia's attempts to interfere in the two thousand and sixteen u.s. presidential election are well and widely known russia has undertaken a campaign of malign activities in its attempt to compete with us our allies and our partners and cats up to thirty one gives us more tools with which to respond.
6:27 pm
but a recent gallup poll shows that over fifty eight percent of the u.s. public favors improving relations with moscow while less than a third think that more steps should be taken less than a third of the u.s. public now we decided to go out on the streets of new york and talk to average new yorkers about the new sanctions these are some of the conversations we had in the streets of manhattan more than half of americans want the usa and russia to get along better are you one of those people i wouldn't mind yes one i want everybody to get in the room you know i think unities the way to peace i mean why are we fighting with russia. who knows the truth is obviously known only to being you know these tell you one thing but it could be do you have another reason for playing you know they've put sanctions on russia before and according to the officials it hasn't stopped their activities so do you think it's a good move to keep doing them. and maybe more the cold war was terrible for
6:28 pm
everybody you know we need to thread the delicate needle of not encouraging bad behavior while recognizing that there are a world power that needs to be respected for their capabilities and you know navigating through that is not simple i think it is important that we do they have to be and putting and substances into other countries that were allied with illegal substances in the. period to be related to the government a much anyway more than half of the americans want better relations between the two countries what do you think that costs should be more and and i mean you do you think you'd be good for the usa and russia get along right you think so absolutely why can't we get along with russia i mean i think that we can but it would be really difficult right now in the situation that we're in with. you know the current president i mean is nice to get along but you can't trust russia they always been on the hand you know to me so they get what they deserve a better relationship with everybody i'm in favor of russian. would think one
6:29 pm
hundred percent of our country wants a better relationship with russia and i would think a hundred percent of russians want to get a relationship with us and the north koreans and the iranians and the mexicans and you know and the people in new jersey for that matter they say that this is the best way to deal with russia's malign activities are these sanctions do you buy that argument now you know you don't really believe anything anyway i am i to believe. now the people that we spoke to seem to overwhelmingly feel that it would be better if the united states and russia could see eye to eye get along more now that certainly just isn't the feeling on capitol hill we've heard a lot of hostility to russia from american politicians but it's just not there on the streets are to scale up and thank you for bringing us that report. former wall street journal correspondent joe lauria believes u.s. politicians are using the so-called russian threat as a distraction from internal problems the whole thing is quite a conundrum for me why they continue to try to politicize this issue and use
6:30 pm
sanctions of some way to help them domestically except that they're trying to cover up their own shortcomings their own short changing of the american people and to try the blame our divisions an article on the crisis in our racial divide year on and on an outside power which is the oldest trick in the book going back to the beginning of civilization if the democrats lose or do not do as well as they hope in the november election having used rusher again as their as their main talking point they may have to readjust and realize that the progressive wing of the party is growing and that the american people don't give a damn about russia and that they have to finally address the real issues here and leave this russia issue alone and get back to normal relations with this country that is that it's imperative for. for world peace essentially. trouble has broken out at the border of a spanish enclave in morocco where hundreds of african migrants attempted to storm the coastal city of ceuta in their efforts to reach europe the resulting cautious
6:31 pm
on police officers attacked with acid. i mean i'm sorry. i didn't. sense i was going to generate food it was too much judge who was a. police state seven officers suffered burns from acid or a similar substance that was the border of the spanish territory inside morocco in july around six hundred migrants trying to break through into suitor. on mainland europe staff at one migrant center near brussels have claimed they are being often abused and threatened by migrants rif and ashleigh brings us more on that when workers signed up to help at a migrant center near brussels and they knew the challenges they could face but now there are green allegations of abuse and violence as stuff come pouring with their stories they have no respect for the volunteers they take drugs in the morning and
6:32 pm
some say they might attack the women working at the center as soon as something happens everything is done to protect the refugees they always have an excuse because of their difficult past many refugees and sold to threaten the stuff but nobody says anything on condition of anonymity workers also complained to local media that a colleague was attacked with a chair leg when we reached out to police brussels for clarification they confer and they'd been called by the center but stopped short of giving any details we. yes indeed we have already intervened at this center the response teams were called three times over the past week in situations like these there are issues either between migrants or between the migrants and the organization itself they do not respect the rules or that sort of thing and that sparks conflict. the engineer running the facility insists they haven't received any complaints from the workers
6:33 pm
at the center and says it fulfills its mission well. i've been working on the ground for three years now and i really truly have never seen anyone attack a woman they're all these lean mentally ill people who insult others then the tension rises it's true but i have never heard any threats this belgium case isn't an isolated one a volunteer group here in france that helped migrants claimed they had faced similar issues from the beginning our mission was to serve drinks and bread and we've done this for twenty months every day during the last month we started questioning our mission because we don't want to volunteer to be put in danger they have nothing not even tends to sleep on the ground and sometimes woken up by the police in the morning taking them and used to take us to move them so when they come to us they're stressed and nervous twice last week we had to stop serving food to let the tension calm down this is something new for us so yes we're stopping officially some sixty two thousand refugees have crossed the mediterranean to
6:34 pm
arrive in europe this year it's not quite the crisis numbers of twenty fifteen but the problem still exists and isn't going anywhere soon. police in germany say they have foiled a possible terror plot in berlin and have arrested a suspect a russian origin our europe correspondent peter over has the story the prosecutors of confirmed that a thirty one year old man who is being named as is the standard protocol with just his first name and the first letter of his last name as michael c. has been arrested on suspicion of plotting a terror attack know police and counter terror officers raided an apartment in berlin on wednesday morning now the operation on wednesday was intended to both arrest the thirty one year old man but also to determine the location of. the explosives that were believed to have been stored in that apartment back in twenty
6:35 pm
sixteen that is part of a wider investigation into a twenty two year old man in france in conjunction with french authorities who's been named as claymont b. who was arrested last year on suspicion of plotting a terror attack now the two men are believed to have been planning an attack together and that they stockpiled large quantities of explosives in the flats that was searched today in berlin there's no word on what the target their intended target was but what prosecutors have said is that the two men were planning an attack that was intended to cause the maximum amount of deaths now. for a world inadvertently by the police after it seems that the two became spooked after the amount of police attention that elisi was getting that prompted the thirty one year old to remain in berlin but his twenty two year old believed conspirator to flee. and eventually into france where he was arrested mark about
6:36 pm
hourly see will be before a federal judge on thursday where he's expected to have the charges read out against him still had at one of the world's biggest sporting brands is facing heavy criticism over the release of new training gear we'll look into that and much more after this break.
6:37 pm
join me every week simon show and i'll be speaking to guest picks for this list i'm sure. i'll see you then. welcome back sports giant nike is facing backlash in the u.k. after releasing a controversial winter sports garment with some suggesting the company is cashing in on gang culture a ball a club that in question has an attachment that can be quote clipped away for easy
6:38 pm
transit as the ad suggests and it also has a pocket that some say could be used to holster a weapon there's been an angry reaction online as well. there's multiple stabbings every day around the country a massive gang problem that's getting worse by the day and night he has released this seventy pound balaklava are they dumb nike are using a black guy to promote about a club with straps and buckets where there is blood there is money now nike are endorsing gun and knife crime as well as enforcing racial profiling well why exactly are you promoting a baloch lover in july if this was in winter at least it's hard to criticize. there have been thirty five thousand recorded knife crimes in britain over the last two years the highest amount sense data became available and more than a fifth of those arrested for carrying a knife are teenagers or younger among those bashing nike for the headgear
6:39 pm
a social media comedian white yardy he posted this on instagram listen to me nike whatever we offer pronounce it listen to me because right now it looks like you're targeting the young people who are involved in junk and with these recent studies that we've been seeing right now in london this is definitely something we know off to see see those people know with you what's on it will explain the you know and i don't do it back even though. we had a chance to speak to the comedian who described the balaclava as military looking and doubts whether it's appropriate that you can so you get in the lots of these killings that have been happening recently are like ten minutes so we are from my hoax they came up with the wrong timing with this not only that is this something appropriate they should be making because yes this by the club was we noticed by the club was right there's many stories you can go into and by about the club this one just seemed to be more military look i don't think this was
6:40 pm
a great idea you should get star why would we should just upgrade why you have better we place what are you hiding from us army and here some of the reaction we got among londoners. could be sort of a sportsman like you claimed or. could be also a terrorist my immediate reaction is terrorists first so it's a bit scary. but at the same time is a scary might be just sports equipment you find a menacing no no the problem is i'm from canada so all i think of is someone being warmed to me it could be a good winter i'd outfit. it's not up healing to me at all i didn't think you'd be allowed in banks and. it's not just so much that they describe what's going on. here is as if these could have i don't know you can see it was so severe them with weapons as weapons guns pulling something like that so
6:41 pm
why the trying to cover the cats by. i don't see why you watch. you don't want to have a face out you know inviting is not like is going to make you to buy. you know the branded name i don't think it's really a fashion police i think they might have changed colors and was told to take two charges. i think it's good to. make a profit on the back cold kind of in there which is encouraged more gangster than the stuff you think so yeah of course there's nothing to do with nike if they don't get it from making they get it from something else it's nothing else oh my god when we're seen around with people wearing. the company says the product is available in multiple markets around the world adding that it does not condone or encourage gang culture in any way and is now removed the sold out item from its website use an anti-violence activist paul mckenzie says that companies like nike should bear more
6:42 pm
social responsibility they're worn by skiers and snowboarders i agree and i fully agree with that but they're also being worn by going to london and they're also being used to cover the faces of known gang members a lot of the young people i work with are now buying these by the club as and i'm actually seeing these by the club as on a day to day basis and i'm seeing them being worn by children who do not ski or do not snowboard they actually go out and use those in their crimes and the way that young people look at the use of about the club now as part of this part of going to tie in my opinion these brands need to be a little bit more socially responsible when your brand is so desirable and when there is a trend of the moment of young people killing themselves in london who are using figures like better club as to hide their faces on a day to day basis. finally this hour it's day two of an international military

6:46 pm
found innocent the idea that we were executing innocent people is terrifying lose just know really the present and that we want even many of the families want the death penalty to be abolished the respect the death penalty here is because that's what murder victims' families what that's going to give them peace that's going to give them justice and we come in saying. not quite enough we've been for that for this isn't the way. out what holds a sense to you something that. you put themselves on the line. to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president or injury. or something i want to be honest. what's it like to be first as a what before freedom or can't be good but i'm interested always in the waters of my. question.

6:48 pm
choosing to leave if they can tell it's behind all of it joins us from toronto and tell us about one company companies a french company told hall which is trying to lose plus we go deeper and ask more questions about that story we reported on last week regarding the killing month santals herbicides found in breakfast cereals tricks made not to eat for kids anymore are to correspondent ceremonies has joins us what's it's been nearly nine months since the u.s. congress passed and president trump signed into law tax legislation to reduce taxes on companies and people today we take a look at the impact so far with the executive director of the oh god to actually enter at american university professor donald williams and all that straight away and other jam packed broadcast but first we get to a few headlines as the summer of twenty eight thousand continues to roast the earth's northern hemisphere there is some big and not so great news on climate coming out of the united states the head of the trump administration's u.s.
6:49 pm
environmental protection agency or e.p.a. and. wheeler signed a plan to allow increased greenhouse gas emissions from coal fired power plants the plan cynically titled the affordable clean energy rule rolls back president obama's clean power plan and delegate power to reget to various states to regulate coal states of course are expected to go easy on coal under the trump plan allowing a net increase of the admissions that are quickly changing our world for the worse but technical analysis behind the rule shows that an additional fourteen hundred people will actually perish will die by twenty thirty if the plan is adopted group seeking to keep the planet viable for human beings wouldn't that be nice as the beach boys thing hope to use the two thousand and seven supreme court case that ordered e.p.a. to regulate greenhouse gases as their legal tool to block the trumpet ministrations plant in force and there's also politics of energy regarding climate change in
6:50 pm
australia as conservative prime minister malcolm turnbull today abandoned modest climate and energy plans after intense pressure from the right wing of his party specifically mr turnbull jettisoned a bill to require emission reductions of twenty six percent by two thousand and thirty leaving australia short of meeting their commitment under the paris climate agreement here's what prime minister turnbull had to say in the capital city of complera. now it is clear that in the absence of bipartisan support the legislation to move forward with the emissions component of the national energy guarantee will not be able to pass the house of representatives now in politics you have to focus on what you can deliver and that's what we've done and will continue to do. well mr trouble claim that bill can pass can't pass parliament the plan supposedly has support across political parties australians are increasingly demanding action on energy to remedy high prices and climate impacts both of which
6:51 pm
can be addressed with new clean energy capacity. and as we briefly mentioned here last time greece's bailout has officially ended though our policies imposes a condition for those credit packages the remains in place starting in two thousand and ten greece asked for and accepted and it's compel rather to accept three different packages of financial aid totaling nearly three hundred billion euros from the european commission the european central bank and the international monetary fund in greece tentative plans to officially celebrate the bailouts end were cancelled e.u. commissioner of economic affairs pier of moscow viki hailed the bailouts and. the fact is that greece's transformative reforms have laid the foundations for a sustainable recovery putting in place the fundamental conditions need for sustained growth for creation and for sound public finances indeed used to come
6:52 pm
this was the main goal of the program that and today we all knew that greece concludes its program with a public debt level that these the highest of any member state. greek prime minister alexis tsipras compared the crisis and aftermath to homer's odyssey a national address an international. said our country is regaining its right to define its own fortunes and futures like a normal european country without having policies forced on it by foreign officials with no more blackmail no more sacrifices for our people. and in that regard we take a look at the good the bad and the ugly of the eurozone economies you can guess where greece lands to help us out we're joined by the c.e.o. of straw market and from germany r.t. correspondent peter oliver thank you very much both of you for being here and peter let's start with you the good not long ago some experts we reported here peter that
6:53 pm
said that germany could go into a recession as early as this june well as they saying not dead yet the second quarter growth for the country is surprised and pleased many peter what's the latest. well certainly not dead in fact alive and kicking is the german economy it's performed better than it had been expected for the second quarter of twenty eighteen posting growth of zero point five percent g.d.p. that's up all of what the full cost is had predicted for the second quarter which was zero point four percent what that means is we're now looking at around two point three percent growth for the whole of twenty eighteen and in fact they're predicting that growth will continue through into twenty nineteen where we could see a further two point one percent growth of g.d.p. now they say well those numbers in fact well above the average growth levels full
6:54 pm
of the german economy over the last ten years so everything as you say looking well good would be an understatement it's looking fairly rosy for the german economy at the moment and peter which specific sectors of the german economy seem to be making the most progress at least in the second quarter. trade it's all about trade really for germany in fact the figures that have just come out of showing that exports are at the center of the german economy we knew that already but the germany set to post the largest ever trade surplus for twenty eight hundred some two hundred ninety nine billion dollars in trade surplus made in germany is a stamp that sells around the world book it's putting so much of not of on trade isn't everybody's cup of tea in fact we've seen that upset donald trump it's also upset the european union seven point eight percent of germany's economy comes from exports now under the rules that are put in place to try and keep everything on an
6:55 pm
even keel by the e.u. you not supposed to exceed six percent so they've been getting it in the neck from the european union as well from brussels from the european commission as well as the criticism they've been hearing from donald trump over the atlantic but what we have seen in the second quarter is the german economy try to steer away from relying wholly on exports what we've seen is a big increase in consumer spending also increasing government spending as well and a lot of contributing factors have been given for this talking about high employment rates in germany at the moment also a rate rise in wages across the board in the country and the construction industry in germany if you look out on the skyline of burley and you see cranes almost everywhere you look construction is still booming and that is also getting that shot in the arm to the german economy and that's why all of the numbers are in the
6:56 pm
black and all of the arrows pointing up very interesting and hillary who is good and great but i want to give the bad economy in the euro zone have you have you talk about that and what about the greek debt crisis give us to a quick refresher and how is the country position. now hillary well gee thank you. for giving me greece but no actually i have to say you know bailout sounds like free money but it wasn't it's actually more just more debt so i think the end of this is actually good for the greek economy and i think that it does give them back some degree of autonomy of though of course they're going to be still under the eurozone auspices i think what's important to note is how the austerity measures have taken place and they are proud of that take for example just the banking sector there were before the crisis of forty banks now there's nine there were sixty six thousand something soft now it's down to forty there were four thousand branches now it's down to two thousand i think you can see a lot of the austerity measures have taken place in terms of making the banking sector leaner and meaner and i think that's what the country needed there actually
6:57 pm
is projected to be a two percent growth of g.d.p. growth which is actually similar to germany's obviously a completely as a percentage so much smaller in terms of contribution to the european economy but i think that's good it shows that it's strong my concerns though are about what has happened during this crisis i mean about one hundred fifty thousand of their best and brightest have left there has been a brain drain and i think that's what's going to affect the economy in the future doctors lawyers accountants of all left in droves and going to other countries both in the e.u. to the nordic countries to the u.s. canada and china and i think that's a great pity and that's going to be a problem in the future rebuilding hillary get an excuse same question that i asked peter about the sectors which sectors of the greek economy were doing ok maybe which ones not well when you say sectors i mean the sad thing is there really isn't any hard industry so we can't point to things like we can in germany. the largest
6:58 pm
market cap company in greece's coca-cola so there isn't any large manufacturing i think two sectors that will continue to do well in that they have as an offering and a unique offering are tourism and agriculture tourism although over twenty million visitors that is projected it could grow explain any. it's only at like about a third of its capacity athens could host you know three times more tourists than it does right now it all depends on efficiencies and if government regulations could be relaxed in terms of the amount of entrepreneurial businesses that want to start interest and then agriculture there are so many products that are unique to greece whether it's i think it's the one of the number one exporters of both olives and all of oil and grapes and a lot of agricultural products so that's the future for greece it peter real quick we've just got about sixty seconds mean what does this all your turn for the eurozone particularly light of the the trade tariff wars that we've been discussing lately. well the strong numbers posted by germany today translates
6:59 pm
into stronger numbers for the rest of the eurozone we were expecting around two point one percent to be the growth across the single currency for the twenty eighteen that was times of real well tense times for trade because of the trump. well announcement of a trade war april to june but those where we seem to have dissipated following the deal done between donald trump and you you. the. usual employed young commission president i got there in the end quote young because it was done back in july that seems to alleviated some of those tensions bullets if donald trump design decides he wants to double down on a trade war against iraq well that would have an impact in the future this is the thing we're dealing with this president and this white house we don't know what's going to come in the future that could lead to this insert could two uncertainty and not could have a an effect for the long run but as it stands the strong numbers posted by germany
7:00 pm
really that translates really into fairly decent growth across the whole of the single currency but the way italy the debt in italy is even worse than greece they will keep an eye on maryland that is a very arty correspondent peer oliver thank you for staying late over there in berlin peter and hilary forex the founder of that realm our thanks to you both. and time now for a quick break but hang here because when we return now it's one harlow of it joins us from toronto to look at companies like the french company told how and countries that are trying to quit iran are going to quit you iran in light of the u.s. economic sanctions on the nation plus r.t. correspondent sara montecito also joins us to dig deeper about the feeling one central the other side found in preface syria and the executive director of a cold tech center of american university professor donald williams that is back to examine the impact of the large u.s. tax cut. are they benefiting companies with those stock buybacks or individuals are

one song many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. welcome back venezuelan president nicolas maduro has announced a number of new economic policies aimed at fixing a myriad pressing problems including rampant inflation mr mcgirr also called for budget austerity increased pensions and a minimum wage increase of over thirty four hundred percent and proposals linking the value of pensions wages and a new ball of our currency he's proposed to the value of oil based petrol cryptocurrency tax measures including a that
7:04 pm
a value added tax that exempt food and medicine are also to take effect this week most observers say the math doesn't add up mr president even sympathetic economist half for years called on the venezuelan government to address fundamental imbalances in their currency exchange and import systems to boost domestic production and curb inflation and corruption. french oil giant told tal has pulled out of a lucrative iranian gas project due to u.s. economic sanctions the five billion dollar deal to develop a giant natural gas field is now in limbo but help may be on its way artie's alex my hyla bitches and toronto with more alex thank you as always for being here why was total so quick to back down from from the project is it all to do with the sanctions. has everything to do with the sanctions look they were one of the first companies to come in after two thousand and fifteen when that new deal was signed and the u.s. along with a lot of european nations and others was all you know thumbs up for doing business
7:05 pm
with you rant well now it seems like they're going to be one of the first ones out and all the help in the world just doesn't seem from that at least from their friends at the french government and the e.u. doesn't seem to be able to put or put any influence on the u.s. government the u.s. government is refusing to sign any kind of waiver which would exempt total from being exempt basically from the oil and gas stations that are kicking in in november now for that company at this there's a reason that they're reacting this way by chickening out very very quickly and getting out of dodge or in this case they ran and that would be the fact that billions of dollars in that company and their assets are actually us without ten billion and the fact that ninety percent of the loans that they have are from you banks so they are obviously highly vulnerable to these u.n. sanctions and for a company like that is that it's a major oil producer of major company in the game they don't want to have anything
7:06 pm
to do with any type of penalties that may be incurred so they're getting out of there they're bolting you know it's so interesting alex and we've talked about this a number of times i mean right when the u.s. said they're going to pull out and then impose these additional sanctions on countries and companies remember the europeans present mccrone said no this day and we'll even compensate you well it doesn't look like that's a road that anybody in the euro zone is going and total being i guess the big one i mean what does this mean for iran alex. well of just what you said you know it's interesting also the chinese banks said well if the us don't want to fund you to a lot of these companies especially from europe there's a well we'll back you up but it doesn't seem like anybody is biting for that offer as when it comes to iran i mean this is obviously big news for them we're talking about a deal that would have lasted over a span about twenty years from two thousand and fifteen this is something they desperately needed in many ways so when they announced this and it was their minister actually they really an oil minister is name is numb dar. net and so he when he basically said that these guys are going out of the south park project this
7:07 pm
was very disappointing for them because this whole the project itself was supposed to bring in modernization and just basically clean up some infrastructure that is very old but not everything said and done because in this project there's another investor that investor had about thirty percent and that might pump it up to eighty percent and that would be china as the chinese state owned companies see n.p.c. there there's a good chance that they may take up about eighty percent of this project now the other twenty percent would remain with the iranian government and china also has promised to buy more oil from iran so that when the sanctions kick in they're going to be to help their to help and who's going to getting by that will be the states because china is going to lower its orders of american oil r.t. correspondent alex mahela bench thank you as always alex. thank you the other day.
7:08 pm
the other day we spoke about the environmental advocacy group the environmental working group which found a dangerous club aside gleiser of fate used by the made by the monsanto company they found in cereal and months into a recently was bought by the german drug maker bear well we thought the topic merited a little bit more deeper discussion are pleased to be joined by our correspondents here amman to discuss so you've been looking into this and we're so pleased i saw you on other programs that are to america you were so great on it but it made me even question more we reported that bear stock went down but what have markets been doing since the end of last week so bear stock went down last monday it really plunged and it continued to fall through thursday it seems like it's starting to pick a little bit back up but it lost eighteen percent of its value since the verdict and hundred percent and it's still lower than it has been in the last five years they most of you know when they bought months and they knew this the problems could
7:09 pm
come but they probably didn't know that this much would be the problems anyway let me ask you about the definition of what this level so the environmental working group but there are left leaning progressive i love them but there they are progressive groups out there so their standards might be a little that the standards they use may be a little bit more strict than others and that the f.d.a. is that california that they're comparing this to saying that it's a problem using california standards a.w.g. is comparing it to e.p.a. and california which are all obviously very different california's proposed risk is one point one milligrams of life i say again this is for adults e.p.a.'s level is one hundred forty milligrams and even lower at point zero one milligrams and e.w. is one one hundredth of the california proposed limit and. there have been several critics that have come out and said you know there might be some glyphosate in your cereal but there's nothing to worry about that doesn't mean that you shouldn't feed
7:10 pm
your children cereal in the mornings it's all about the intake a lot of people are voicing that it's mostly people who eat this on a daily basis and eat it you know throughout the day so it's just about the levels and california so this california is risk was developed by state scientists and this was after twenty fifteen the international agency for research on cancer claimed that life to say it was a probable carcinogenic to humans then after that was when california came out and said we need to put this as a cancer causing chemical. we're going to run out of time but i want to ask you one question that i'd like to have you back on this is somebody reevaluating this to make sure that levels the correct level that we don't get curtain cancer so the f.d.a. has been working on this since two thousand and sixteen since they are in charge of the e.p.a. food standards there is they did say quote the results are being evaluated and those results will be included when the agency releases the twenty seventeen pesticide report so we are waiting on that report to see where they want to get you
7:11 pm
back as quick as possible to continue this conversation. at thank you sir. and soft drink and their joint pepsico announced on monday that they will acquire soda stream the israeli maker of do it yourself so of making machines for three point two billion dollars buying them out of the hundred forty four dollars per share more than ten percent above soda stream starts closing price on friday pepsi's move is the latest episode of soft drink makers seeking to adapt to consumers shift away from the usual heisley sweetened sodas by marketing to others possible products such as sports drinks caesar carbonated water the acquisition also was reportedly one of the final initiatives of outgoing pepsi c.e.o. indra nooyi who departure we covered here and now we shift gears to look at the impact to date of the. us tax cuts to lend us is able hand we are joined by american university professor donald williamson professor thank you for coming back we put your appreciate it thank you ok so we got to do this
7:12 pm
a little bit but i was so taken by our conversation let's do this more so glad you're here and the main question i have is look we know that a lot of these companies have taken the benefits and used it for stock buybacks one do you agree that's the case and is that a bad thing yes it is the case i don't think when congress passed the law they anticipated that to occur but it has occurred and the bottom line is what will those shareholders do with the money they received on the buy backs will they invest in capital intensive activities as was the intent of the bill or will they spend it on vacations or even worse maybe just take it overseas and hold it there for an vacations spend it but i guess they get us airfare to get to get out you know i mean people expected that they were going to take this money and invest it in new manufacturing and capital intensive things but that doesn't appear to be the case but as you say it may be though maybe they'll buy soda stream with interest so the jury still out part ok now let's turn to individuals clearly the rate has been
7:13 pm
dropped. but is it really going to help when you sort of weigh the balances who does this tax bill help more corporate america or individuals well i think it helps both part of the rate cuts have extended both to corporations and individuals so that any taxable income the last dollar the marginal rate of tax is less for individuals the standard deduction for individuals has almost been double so that only about ten to fifteen percent of all americans will have to file what we call a schedule an itemized deduction form where they account for their trouble contributions taxes and mortgage interest and cetera so it's great simplified there and then the child tax credit has been doubled for those folks so it's two thousand dollars for every child under seventeen so it has benefited individuals it's a tough call as to whether those benefits outweigh. the great benefits given the corporation and there's also the a lot of the deductions that were taken away i mean some of those were pretty
7:14 pm
important right yes no question about you mention that child care we're pleased that that's there and that helps working families but some deductions are the most a lot of deductions that were available for employees in their trades or businesses have been denied now. i mean i ask you to go into the way back machine and let's go back to the last time a major tax overhaul was passed president reagan a hero of lots of people the republican party and he was a pretty good president in my mind even though i didn't support him but that was the last time we had major tax reform compare the one nine hundred eighty six tax reform act to this one that just passed well the biggest difference that makes this bill so significant is the reduction in corporate tax rates we have gone from marginal rate for corporations of thirty five percent down to twenty one percent that is most significant the intent was to make american companies more competitive with their foreign competitors and also perhaps to repatriate some of those business activities that u.s. corporations were conducting overseas we'll have to wait and see that as well but
7:15 pm
that is the most significant from a company or corporate benefit that makes this bill more significant than the one thousand nine hundred six act a very interesting and last time we spoke we talked talked about a capital was a capital gains reduction duction that's going nowhere fast and nothing's changed on that right that's correct donna williamson professor university at the coconut center thank you so much for bringing your time thank you and that's it for this time thanks for joining us you catch boom bust on direct t.v. channel three twenty one dish network channel two eighty or streaming twenty four seven on pluto t.v. that's the free t.v. app channel one thirty two or as always catch that youtube dot com slash boom bust r.t. will see you next time. but

donald trump's presidency appears on shaky ground after two former associates profound guilty of numerous federal crimes a special counsel probe initially launched to investigate alleged collusion with russia so far only exposed to fraud and election campaign violations wherein the drugs are you know they're still looking for closure where the coach or find some killers. also this hour russia slams newly enforced u.s. sanctions as counterproductive and meaningless is vowing to respond congress is also mulling over even more aggressive measures against moscow that could hit later this year also ahead. seven police officers suffer acid burns after trying to stop hundreds of african
7:21 pm
migrants from entering spanish territory in morocco. a very warm welcome to the program from all of us here at our to h.q. in moscow thanks for joining us this hour. there's been plenty of talk this wednesday over double trump's presidency which now appears to be in a precarious position less than two years to the president's former associates have been found guilty of federal crimes it's put trump in hot water as his ex lawyer has implicated him as the orchestrator of campaign and financial violations and the media's already getting an a spin over his possible impeachment that he be impeached with this i think the beginning has to be set and mark right now and wolf we're in a watergate moment but there is i think a lot for the president to fear impeachment endlessly discussed in mainstream media
7:22 pm
discourse to day it seems became a little more realistic for trump although it's not exact. what you might think nefarious links the russian agents or collusion with the kremlin something far more mundane as his former lawyer michael cohen pleaded guilty to franken tax fraud he also admitted guilt in campaign finance charges allegedly paying off for mistresses of trump for their silence on the orders of the now president in a double whammy trump's former campaign manager pulled him out of fort was also found guilty of numerous possible fraud charges potentially facing years in prison but what about those russian links after all that's what the attorney general authorized special counsel moola to dig up coordination between the russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of president donald trump they found buying ten tax fraud evasion lies to the f.b.i. hush money but no russian collusion fake do the right here do it count we
7:23 pm
got our big cavity where is there closure you know there's still looking for collusion where is there to lose your finds a delusion it's a day of embarrassment for trump and bad timing too with midterm elections approaching and democrats looking for any i mean if they can find the president will view this as a vindication a year and a half later after several investigations the russian leak story still seems dead in the water although who knows what else the ongoing investigation will find the fact that they haven't come up with anything and that the all they've managed to claw back with paul metaphor is mis firings and some bank fraud charges in the same with cohen in violation of campaign. regulations finance regulations that proves there is no russian collusion or they've wasted two years to find fairly pedestrian
7:24 pm
violations sure if you went into any of the campaigns including hillary clinton's and spent two years with an investigation team in the grand juries i'm sure you'd find a lot more than mis filings in maybe some violations of campaign finance laws. donald trump has given his first direct response to his former associates allegations against him the us president went on twitter praising former campaign chief paul metaphor for not breaking under pressure while the same time accusing explorer michael cohen of making up stories in order to get a plea deal. the russian leader has slammed washington's latest sanctions against moscow as counterproductive vladimir putin's remarks came during a joint news conference with the president of finland in sochi. regarding the sanctions those actions are counterproductive and meaningless especially when it comes to a country like russia it's not just about the u.s. president's position it's about the position of the so-called establishment the
7:25 pm
ruling class in broader terms i hope the realisation that this policy has no future will come one day and we will cooperate in a normal fashion. the first batch of the latest u.s. sanctions against russia are set to come into force this wednesday they focus on exports of american made electronics used in the aeronautical and space industries moscow says the measures won't affect the russian public in november moscow could face a second wave of restrictions described by a us state department official as more draconian this could include more limits on trade and banking and cuts to diplomatic relations and measures under consideration that may also ban russia state airline from entering u.s. airspace washington says the new sanctions are in response to the poisoning of a russian double agent and his daughter in britain earlier this year investigation into the case is still ongoing and no hard evidence of russia's involvement has been made public kill bobbins been gauging what americans make of the latest moves against russia well if you watch the recent hearings on capitol hill american
7:26 pm
politicians are rather outspoken about what they think about these new moves against russia let's review some of what we recently heard ongoing efforts to interfere in our sacrosanct election process seize and those of our allies or to. just some of the unacceptable behaviors of the putin regime putin wants to break apart the american republic russia's attempts to interfere in the two thousand and sixteen u.s. presidential election are well and widely known russia has undertaken a campaign of malign activities in its attempt to compete with us our allies and our partners and cats up to thirty one gives us more tools with which to respond however a new gallup poll shows that among the u.s. public fifty eight percent that's well over half favor improving relations between the usa and russia and that it's just over a third just over a third thirty six percent that say they want further steps against moscow and now we decided to go out on the streets of new york and talk to people about these new
7:27 pm
sanctions we spoke to people here some of the conversations we had on the streets of manhattan more than half of americans want the usa and russia to get along better are you one of those people i wouldn't mind yes one i want everybody to get a room you know i think unities the way to peace i mean why are we fighting with russia. who knows this roof is obviously known only to being you know these tell you one thing that it could be do you have another reason for playing you know they've put sanctions on russia before and according to the officials it hasn't stopped their activities so i think it's a good move to keep doing that and maybe more the cold war was terrible for everybody you know we need to thread the delicate needle of not encouraging bad behavior while recognizing that there are a world power that needs to be respected for their capabilities and you know navigating through that is not simple i think it is important that we do sanctions
7:28 pm
they have to be and putting and substances into other countries that were allied with illegal substances in the u.k. it is prayed to be related to the gulf many of us anyway more than half of the americans want better relations between the two countries why do you think that costs should be more. and i mean you think it. good for the usa and russia get along right you'd think so absolutely why can't we get along with russia i mean i think that we can but it would be really difficult right now in the situation that where and when. you know the current president i mean it's nice to get along but you can't trust russia it was been on day and you know the me so they get what they deserve a better relationship with everybody i'm in favor of russia and we would think a hundred percent of our country wants a better relationship with russia and i would think a hundred percent of russians want to get a relationship with us and the north koreans and the iranians and the mexicans and you know and the people in new jersey for that matter they say that this is the best way to deal with russia's malign activities are these sanctions do you buy that argument now you know really believe anything healing i am led to believe the
7:29 pm
people that we spoke to seem to overwhelmingly feel that it would be better if the united states and russia could see eye to eye and get along more now that certainly just isn't the feeling on capitol hill we've heard a lot of hostility to russia from american politicians but it's just not there on the streets former wall street journal correspondent joe lauria believes the u.s. politicians are using the so-called russian threat as a distraction from internal problems the whole thing is quite a conundrum for me why they continue to try to politicize this issue and use sanctions of some way to help them domestically except that they're trying to cover up their own shortcomings their own short changing of the american people and to try the blame our divisions and our economic crisis in our racial divide here on an outside power which is the oldest trick in the book going back to the beginning of civilization if the democrats lose or do not do as well as they hope in the
7:30 pm
november election having used rusher again as their as their main talking point they may have to readjust and realize that the progressive wing of the party is growing and that the american people don't give a damn about russia and that they have to finally address the real issues here and leave this russia issue alone and get back to normal relations with this country that is that it's imperative for. for world peace central if. troubles broken out at the border of a spanish on klav in morocco where hundreds of african migrants attempted to storm the coastal city of ceuta in their efforts to reach europe the resulting cautious of police officers attacked with acid. because it was. some of it was too much. police say seven officers suffered burns from acid or a similar substance that was thrown at them it's the second time in

a month that migrants have attempted to breach the border of the spanish territory inside morocco and july around six hundred migrants trying to break through to suitor. a made learn europe stop at one migrant center near brussels have claimed they are being regularly abused and threatened by migrants we're here for national brings us more on that when workers signed up to help at a migrant center near brussels and they knew the challenges they could face but now there are green allegations of abuse and violence as stuff come pouring with their stories they have no respect for the woman two years they take drugs in the morning and some say they might attack the women working at the center as soon as something happens everything is done to protect the refugees they always have an excuse because of their difficult past many refugees and sold to threaten the stuff but nobody says anything on condition of anonymity workers also complained to local
7:32 pm
media that a colleague was attacked with a chair leg when we reached out to police brussels for clarification they can her and they've been called by the center but stopped short of giving any details we. yes indeed we have already intervened at this center the response teams were called three times over the past week in situations like these there are issues either between migrants or between the migrants and the organization itself they do not respect the rules or that sort of thing and that sparks conflict. the engineer running the facility insists they haven't received any complaints from the workers at the center and says it fulfills its mission well. i've been working on the ground for three years now and i really truly have never seen anyone attack a woman they're only asli mentally ill people who insult others then the tension rises it's true but i have never heard any threats this belgium case isn't an isolated one
7:33 pm
a volunteer group here in france that helped migrants claimed they had faced similar issues from the beginning our mission was to serve hot drinks and bread and we've done this for twenty months every day during the last month we started questioning our mission because we don't want to volunteer to be put in danger they have nothing not even tends to sleep on the ground and sometimes woken up by the police in the morning they kick them and use tear gas to move them so when they come to us they're stressed and nervous twice last week we had to stop serving food to let the tension calm down this is something new for us so yes we are stopping officially some sixty two thousand refugees have crossed the mediterranean to arrive in europe this year it's not quite the crisis numbers of twenty fifteen but the problem still exists and isn't going anywhere soon. after. police in germany say they have foiled a possible terror plot in berlin and have arrested a suspect of russian origin our europe correspondent peter all over the story the
7:34 pm
prosecutors have confirmed that a thirty one year old man who is being named as is the standard protocol with just his first name and the first letter of his last name as mark c. has been arrested on suspicion of plotting a terror attack no police and counter terror officers raided an apartment in berlin on wednesday morning though the operation on wednesday was intended to both arrest the thirty one year old man but also to determine the location. the explosives that were believed to have been stored in that apartment back in twenty sixteen that is part of a wider investigation into a twenty two year old man in france in conjunction with french authorities who's been named as claymont b. who was arrested last year on suspicion of plotting a terror attack now the two men are believed to have been planning an attack together and that they stockpiled large quantities of explosives in the flat that
7:35 pm
was searched today in berlin there's no word on what the target their intended target was but what prosecutors have said is that the two men were planning an attack that was intended to cause the maximum amount of deaths now that attack was foiled inadvertently by the police after it seems that the two became spooked after the amount of police attention that elisi was getting that prompted the thirty one year old to remain in berlin but his twenty two year old believed conspirator to flee arkan and eventually into france where he was arrested early see will be before a federal judge on thursday where he's expected to have the charges read out against him. sports giant nike is facing backlash in the u.k. after releasing a controversial winter sports garment with some suggesting the company is cashing in on gang culture the bar club there in question has an attachment that can be
7:36 pm
quote clipped away for easy transit as the ad suggests and it also has a pocket that some say could be used to holster a weapon there's been an angry reaction online. there's multiple stabbings every day around the country a massive gang problem that's getting worse by the day and night he has released this seventy pound balaklava are they dumb nike are using a black guy to promote about a club with straps and buckets where there is blood there is money now nike are interesting gun and knife crime as well as enforcing racial profiling well done why exactly are you promoting a baloch lover in july if this was in winter it least it's hard to criticize there have been thirty five thousand recorded night crimes in britain over the last two years the highest amount since data became available and more than a fifth of those arrested for carrying a knife are teenagers or younger among those bashing for the head care is social media comedian white yardy he posted this on instagram listen to me tonight nike
7:37 pm
whatever we offer promote it listen to me because right now it looks like you're targeting the young people who are involved in junk and with these recent studies that we've been seeing right now in london this is definitely something we know off to see serious people know with evil but take what you watch and it will explain that you know no i don't do it bucky. we had a chance to speak to the comedian who described the balaclava as military looking and doubts whether it's appropriate i'll even so you get in the look at these killings that have been happening recently i like ten minutes so we are from my hoax they came up with the wrong timing with this not only that is this something appropriate they should be making because yes this by the club was we noticed by the club was right there's many stories you can go into and by about the club this one just seemed to be more military look at i don't think this was
7:38 pm
a great idea you should get star why would you should just upgrade why you have the go where you please what are you hiding yes i mean here's some of the reaction we got among londoners. could be sort of a sportsman like a climber. could be also a terrorist my immediate reaction is terrorists first so it's a bit scary. but at the same times i do scary might be just sports equipment to find a menacing you know now the problem is i'm from canada so all i think of is someone being warmed to me it could be a good winter outfit. is not appealing to me at all i don't think you'd be allowed in banks and. it's not just so much that what's going on. here is as if these could have i don't know you can see it was so severe them with weapons as westerns guns bullets something like that why the trying to
7:39 pm
cover the fattest bike. i don't see why you watch. you don't want to have a face out you know inviting is not like is going to make you to buy you know you you know the you know the branded name i don't think it's really a fashion police i think they might have changed to cause the little button to charge for some. i think it's good to. make a profit on the back all that kind of in. there is encouraged more gangsters and stuff you think so yeah of course that's nothing to do with nike if they don't get it from nike to get it from somebody else it's nothing else than a god when we're seen around with people wearing. the company says the product is available in multiple markets around the world adding that it does not condone or encourage gang culture and anyway it has now removed the sold out i them from its website use an anti-violence activist paul mackenzie says that companies like nike

should bear more social responsibility for their warm by skiers and snowboarders i agree and i are fully agree with that but they're also being mourned by going to london and they're also being used to cover the faces of known gang members a lot of the young people i work with are now buying these by the club has and i'm actually seen these by the club as on a day to day basis and i'm seeing them being worn by children who do not ski or do not snowboard they actually go out and use those in their crimes and the way that young people look at the use of about the club now as part of their part of going to china in my opinion these brands need to be a little bit more socially responsible when your brand is so desirable and when there is a trend of the moment of young people kill themselves in london who are using figures like better club as to hide their faces on a day to day basis. it's day two of an international military expert taking place in patriot park just outside of moscow and russia's most famous weapons

affairs of countries around the world and undermine rival governments. attending an event organized by the national endowment for democracy it's a nonprofit and geo founded in one thousand nine hundred eighty three and is supported by both the democratic and republican parties currently it operates in close to one hundred nations the national endowment for democracy says its work aims to help non-governmental groups promote democracy but blumenthal couldn't help but notice some parallels right i covered the ceremony because these organizations are doing exactly what congress accuses russia funded media outlets control farms of doing in the united states they interfere in other countries politics and with foreign money. the only difference is they do it openly and in the name of spreading freedom. some activists at the meeting were quite clear on their agenda as they themselves explained. once again. i'd like to express
7:43 pm
our sincere gratitude to buy pot of. the poor and also u.s. congresspeople as well and u.s. citizen french and me we are doing this work with the u.s. citizens tax americans have no idea that they're funding an organization that's explicitly dedicated to meddling in other countries affairs interfering in elections toppling often democratically elected leaders and spreading public relations campaigns to sow chaos against countries that resist washington's agenda but here you have kind of open acknowledgement from this korean activist who is behind the transitional justice working group which is responsible for a lot of what congress states and knows about north korea's suppose it human rights violations so basically the united states is paying for its own findings to ramp up sanctions and hostility against north korea and what's really interesting about
7:44 pm
this event that i attended in capitol hill is that it was timed to coincide with the trump kim summit it was essentially a u.s. government backed event undermining a u.s. government initiative to foster peace between north and south korea and that to me seems like almost and then a form of internal interference you think that the national endowment for democracy . if there is a peace treaty that they should cease funding civil society groups that seek a transition or regime change and i think i don't know that that's what they do but i do know that they promote human rights they and i mean for example if russia were funding civil society groups inside the us i'm not going to need to put the word they do i think it's pretty obvious i mean two things are going on there first of all you have. these activists and organizations that are funded by the national endowment for tomorrow. see the u.s. regime change arm in south korea who are dedicated to regime change in north korea
7:45 pm
really worried that the money's going to stop rolling in from washington if there is a peace treaty so basically conflict is an entire industry and it's part of this fake human rights and democracy promotion industry so pelosi wanted to duck that issue and then the other issue she wants to duck is the sheer hypocrisy of supporting an organization that funds civil society groups and opposition media to topple governments and so chaos and sovereign countries while complaining that for example this network r.t. does that in the united states and that's exactly what nancy pelosi and her colleagues in congress do every day when confronted with the issue there's nothing they can do but deflect and run away as palosi did a lot of what we do today was done covertly twenty five years ago by the cia it's even more the case since the color revolution model has been introduced. and what
7:46 pm
the ne does is what the cia might have done to salvador allende inchy lay but they do so overtly and therefore avoid a lot of the scrutiny from congress it looks like they're funding democracy and legitimate protests but they're directing their resources exclusively against countries that resist washington's economic and political agenda it's an extension of the cia but it seems like it's pushing human rights and things that americans can get behind and that's why they receive so little scrutiny from the public it's very clever actually that's a recap of the day's headlines for now but don't forget you can find us on all of your favorite social media platforms opt in the minute reports thanks for tuning in this hour.
7:47 pm
what politicians do something to. put themselves on the lawn. to get accepted over checked. so when you want to be president. or somehow want to press. to the right to be press that's what the four asked for in the morning can't be good that. i'm interested always in the water column.
7:48 pm
i'm after a time when you're watching going underground while we're away we're screening some of your favorite episodes of this season coming up on this show will climate change mean the complete destruction of this country within eighty years we talked with former leader ahmed wahid about what the will be is emblematic of all the serious issues facing the planet ahead of elections attracting the attention of india china nato and the e.u. and fanshen i go and vivienne westwood goes to downing street as u.k. minority government he did tourism a browse on with her plans to frac the british countryside unsustainable energy all
7:49 pm
of the more coming up in today's going underground first straight to our top story in a nation that arguably encapsulates the fragility of the world from trade wars to carbon emissions the maldives it's twelve hundred islands a famous for dream holidays but today it's in the eye of a storm on monday deposed leader mohamed nasheed criticize chinese influence in the region this after britain's foreign secretary johnson voiced concerns to some it appears that nato nations one machine in and president of the young mean out to elections this autumn well joining me now is the maldives former president mohamed wahid has on he's just been recognized by the center for international competitive . and research as a member of its twenty eighteen power brands hall of fame former president we're going to going other god right now what is the strategic importance of your nation because we're hearing all manner of things from press releases from different foreign offices whether it be in the e.u. nato nations with a reef in china and whether it be from india see more devices strategically located
7:50 pm
in the middle of the indian ocean and so anyone who wants to have influence in the indian ocean region would want the maldives on their side so this is where a more diverse is important but survived for thousands of years without being involved in any global strategic conflict so i believe that maldives is going to continue to twelve years old what is it twelve hundred islands i want to get to those specifics a bit later but let's take us back to arguably the beginning of the most current concerns take us back to the night of february seventh was the day of every seven twenty twelve and the coup you became president what would happen if i was vice president at the time and there was mounting opposition against the president for various reasons economy and political president came in in
7:51 pm
a coalition together with me and other political parties but this coalition fell apart and so many of the coalition partners turned against him and so the mountain of. that's not it who's currently trying to get back. there is trying to come back but you know he made a mistake fundamental mistake in arresting serving judge chief justice of the criminal court without any you know the proper legal process. so that is wanting him today because he is now under a sentence for having abducted judge. the constitution doesn't allow this kind of facts anymore now living in sri lanka and now living in sri lanka and also he was seen as a hero of the environment but of course what you're alluding to there is that these twelve hundred islands we have got to have the whole history of islam militia group called all that over over centuries the the critical conflict between judiciary and
7:52 pm
the executive yes we've got a new constitution in two thousand and eight here which for the first time in more deals guaranteed fundamental rights of the people and also for the first time separated the three powers of government my sense of it is that we came out with a constitution that is mostly theoretical you know without a basis in the practice of politics in the motives the country that has gone through years and years of authoritarian rule with patronage playing a very important role and now suddenly you have a constitution that looks like you know you were in the u.k. or u.s. in fact it was a hybrid constitution or with elements of an executive presidency and the parliament system westminster palm tree system so there was you know inconsistent and so you know you have a country where the president was all powerful and so on and suddenly his powers have been taken away as anyone from the global elite lucky enough to visit the
7:53 pm
movies would say you arrive on one of these twelve hundred islands it's a five star hotel the manager is greatly the dictator and the head of personnel is the sheriff there is it doesn't seem to be any lower there at all no motives you know the results in more divs operate very independently and they have you know all the. room to function effectively as five stars on stuff else so there's really very little law no interference from the government. which is the maldives is an old order society you know people have lived there for almost two thousand years in american history goes back hundreds of years so. there are cultures there already there are that takes a little bit of time to evolve and adapt to new new systems so i mean i become president but i don't have the powers of caring so if people want things from me i can't just you know hand out money there are systems now in place but that's one of
7:54 pm
the issues because it could become a very very rich country it's interesting because when when the coup happened indian media were condemning you as far as i understood it or some elements of it the u.s. assistance actually stayed at the robert blake said it was ok for you to become president i don't know i don't have a beijing said at the time if you listen to all these different i was actually quite busy you know listen i do believe i wasn't at all prepared for it and therefore it was the united states didn't want you to be president but i think the united states knew exactly what was going on in mauritius you know they were following the situation so it wasn't really a coup in the you know traditional sense in the u.s. but the u.s. has a military base south of maldives in the us here in the. book is technically leased from the british. that's what i do there with the french say about. so when it comes to foreign interference then as you became president
7:55 pm
very soon afterwards there were voices i think you yourself were saying there's a degree of interference coming from the commonwealth and there's a threat to leave the commonwealth. well you see at that time there were. countries are calling for immediate elections but you know the president in models and the new constitution don't have the power still called for an election it's like the american system the president or any reason leaves the office. vice president completes the top of the situation motives was quite difficult at the time and also two local leaders really just going to go to london or to washington and say i'll do whatever you tell me and maybe they could be learned from the if you didn't know i didn't do that i didn't do that you know we tried to manage the situation and i didn't arrest people you know it was not there never arrested he was free to continue to do his political work and. so it was
7:56 pm
a difficult situation i tried to manage as best as i can and then we had elections the difficult elections but never this. it was free and fair it actually was very difficult for you there was some controversy because you hired baron a scotsman gordon brown's attorney general we had her advice on how to deal with particularly some of our international partners because there was a misunderstanding there you know they thought that you know how come this very popular guy who is you know first democratically elected president you know suddenly resigns and then the next day he comes out and says it's a coup and that i had the gun it is head i mean it was too much for people to you know deal with and so it's very very indigenous this isn't some cia back you know this is structural changes with this there were people who were unhappy with the way things were going and the opposition because you know a lot of the coalition partners had now become gone onto the opposition they were
7:57 pm
coming out in the on the streets and the religious element for the inflated it and in december i think it was but i was on the eleventh there was huge demonstrations against the government you know that was really a turning point for people were you conscious then the outside forces are going to hire some pretty controversial p.r. firms of tourism so important in the mall leaves as a. foreign exchange we are very conscious as president i was very conscious that we have to really maintain the we have to maintain. stability because tourism is the lifeline of the country but if it stops then people will stop overnight so this is why i thought it was really important to try to calm down the situation and be as tolerant as possible and form a government of national unity i invited all the people all the political parties to come of all the p.r. firms why pick on is it all rude router for him somebody came up with the suggestion of you know this company. and we hired we didn't know who actually to
7:58 pm
hire in google. because they did israel's el al which caused. element of. discord would say against population and then of all the things to do you choose china for a contract you know what over and you know what. the first lawmaker meant with chinese bank was done by national. himself well i mean the infrastructure project actually rather than yeah the lawn was for infrastructure projects it was for the airport upgrade no it was for housing projects the first billion dollars was taken from the chinese exam back by nasheed for housing projects and then later we took more and more money from this government actually took money for them because i'm not criticizing you for doing really i'm just saying i can't imagine what we're doing in whitehall here in washington but it is the little brussels i don't say
7:59 pm
that is what was wrong in taking that money we needed the money because we want we didn't have the money to be able to meet the rise you expect ations of people in a democratic society really newly democratic country people want housing they want . to say that somehow it's become the people's republic of. this is this is misleading this list leading and i think you know motives economy strong more this will pay its debts and i i don't think we will fall into a situation where you know china will be able to twist arms because of unpaid loans but how does developing world nation leader today especially in the indian ocean let alone in it could be of course in the red sea or web so the caribbean managed to pivot between these huge trading blocks which are in effect actually at the moment in the in the global trade where we are caught in between big powers in the region. india on one side and child on the other side you know i mean we wish you
8:00 pm
both india and china you know able to you know resolve their differences and not have small countries like motives get caught in between you know i it's very difficult for small countries not just the motive but also for other developing small countries in east asia and africa but you know we need the development funds from somewhere and unfortunately in our u.k. or u.s. not providing that kind. development financing and so many countries not just maldives are being forced to go to china because those funds are available from china and you know when you have a democratic country where people's aspirations you know expect to suddenly go in are you know the constitution that you have you are entitled to you have a right to holocene you have a right to safe drinking water then the government is forced to do something about it for president i'll stop you there more from former president mohammad wahid son after the break fashion designer vivienne westwood in downing street to protest
8:01 pm
u.k. government energy plans that critics say will cause earthquakes in britain let alone lead to global destruction. part two of going underground. camera. roughly once they showed some leave for the. uncool videos and someone with the broken string. more on string i don't roughly don't t.v. . funny. line you feel you would be to the point that out of me.
8:02 pm
people. hating. on my little bit that i little bit. that i would much rather wait for tomorrow but. this is one dear life. welcome back we're still with the former president of the maldives one hundred one he had a son who had the why mr nasheed was so popular was his famous demonstration of
8:03 pm
climate change in the power of climate change i mean what is your opinion about the latest scientific evidence that suggests your country will disappear within eighty years. unfortunately that's the reality we have to face but in the meantime you know in the immediate near future we are going to be experiencing rough weather third of the maldives islands ordered severely you know as a politician you go around the island number one demand today is help us protect the beaches just recently one of the southern islands which is the only island at all in the world it's called formula it's just. below sea level but it has a rim around it. that protects the ocean from coming into the country that is eroding now and just last month they had major flooding and they have two of three freshwater bodies on the island they're all going contaminated now because of this so motives is threatened absolutely and it's not
8:04 pm
a long term trends because some have suspected that the this is with a desire for aid in that actually some islands there is they're getting bigger we also have the technology to be able to expand islands and reclaim thence there are deposits of sand in the ocean that can be taken out and for building and grazing i dance and that we are doing quite successfully because that technology is in for was in china which is doing all sorts of climate change activities the greasing solar and so on whereas in washington president trump obviously has dissolved the paris climate change agreement do you think developing nations also will turn away from washington because of this key issue of climate change when it comes to the economics of developing world nations i think people are not stupid they know what's going on in climate change and people believe in it now paris accord was difficult it was it took a long time to get to court and so you know us it's unfortunate that they're you
8:05 pm
know pulled pulled out of it but most of the nations are going to go ahead with the accord and you know india china all of them are. investing heavily in renewables they have set high targets for adopting renewable energy so i'm optimistic i think we together we will be able to deal with this issue of climate change how invented is this competition between india and china over the maldives especially given that they are obviously in the brics movement the new trade to block do you think to an extent it suits the european union and the other major nations that there is this fight between these two massive piles it is definitely not healthy for motives i mean india and china may have had their differences over other issues for a long time. and so nobody in prime minister speaks fluent mandarin. but you know but they're also cooperating on technology on economy affairs and so on and trade
8:06 pm
so i mean it's unfortunate that a small country like motives is seen to be taking sides when it asks for assistance from from either of those countries you know they said this is a problem in many small countries and i got to singapore but often i think they have the same kind of difficulty you know caught between big powers but that's something i think that heads of state from small countries need to also talk to each other and you know compare notes and see you know how do you how do you deal with this was your first question how do you deal with this kind of competition and i don't think there are any a answer to that but ironically for those critics of washington foreign policy in latin america in africa in southeast asia it could indeed be the united states the destroys your country not through any kind of foreign intervention but because it fosters climate change i hope not because you know the private sector in the u.s. is not going along with strong president trumps policies you know many of them have
8:07 pm
said you know they would buy it so our i'm not so desperate and hopeless i think the united states also has a key role to play especially. you know technologically the united states is able to contribute much enormously to. new. technologies and renewable energy in particular and just finally i must ask this because i know this goes out in all some of the maldives and some of those twelve hundred islands what about trade union rights and rights of workers in all these different hotel complexes because how on earth does the central government in mali keep tabs on worker rights when it seems like big multinational hotel chains are running those islands it is very much self regulated now we have a labor council for labor affairs which which listens to complaints that come from . really. yes yes you can i mean they have the power to visit any resort
8:08 pm
and see to. yeah unfortunately because of the geography many of our workers have to stay away from their families their families and their inhabited islands but they have to come and live on the. resort island so that's a huge disadvantage but many resorts allow them to go back to their resorts periodically but still the pay is so good in the resorts most of them prefer to work in resorts even over going to fishing or president thank you thank you. well while climate change threatens the destruction of the maldives protesters are out in force here outside the house of minority government needed to raise them a on world environment day this week fashion icon vivienne westwood and their son fashion designer jo cora came to the heart of government to deliver planet in yours which they say is a representation of armageddon caused by plastic pollution and climate change we
8:09 pm
spoke to them about what they consider to be the. factor coalition governments hypocritical policies on fracking and plastic. very in westwood joe corey thanks for agreeing to this interview outside the house of the prime minister of tourism a you got into downing street this time around last time there were problems what have you come here to do today while we're here on world environment. to deliver some important reports to the reason why. the reports about any office any of us has the most fracking license is all paid to licenses issued by the government. seeks to become the biggest trucking company in the u.k. they're already impulses. of. propane gas from the united states and eighty seven percent of any else's
8:10 pm
business is in manufacturing plastics eighty seven percent if they want to frack the gas to use the gas both to pay our payer power their plants that makes plastics and turn the east into excellent to make poly isolation which is plastic. we're here on world environment because the united nations to does in fact. again. you know put up the warning flank about the amount of toxic plastic waste that is infesting our oceans an air environment last week all the media would only raise on the spot light of that why only us the recognized by the government what we're asking to raise it today is ham over the last five six years we've been sold this idea that we need fracking for energy security is making
8:11 pm
millions of tons of more polluting plastics helping our energy security this is about making millions of times more polluting disposable plastic and we were asking the government to why you can't do that and finally say saints see the writing on the wall and stop this madness it's crazy vivian you hear the writing on the wall is this government is an agent for this moms who is. giving them the right to frack for plastic i mean they're an agent of pollution given the right to a monster to frack for plastic that is the writing on the wall since joe started complaining against fracking the number of people in this country who amfi fracking has risen to about eighty percent is the gas spec difficult to calculate our
8:12 pm
government is empty paypal that's what i'm saying it's not it's pro rubbish a monster and it's empty paypal any of us didn't get back to us in time for the specific allegations made here what is now happening about injunctions and law against protests against this interest. the fracking industry alone plastics i mean any of the they have been gaming the british legal system in order to obtain this injunction and their injunction that they. brought in a secret court hearing where no one was able to go and represent themselves no one was able to put a different point of view they were managed to obtain through the chant so we call the business call the do not specialist in human rights issues it's just one of the reasons why in your sim i believe took the case to the to the chancery division.
8:13 pm
they convince a judge to effectively give them the most draconian interim injunction in british legal history one of the reasons why it's so draconian is because it's against persons are not now what that means effectively is it's against everything it's against the whole world these injunctions normally are used for as blood type situations stalking sites situations where you have a clearly identifiable culprit and you say to that person if you come on this land again if you do any of these actions again then you're going to be subject to the terms of this injunction. they have areas that cover millions of square riker's of countries so that if they give you steps on their courage today even though there's no fence around it there's no signs in wouldn't know where you are you are potentially putting yourself in
8:14 pm
a position where you could face two years in prison and have all your assets. low here in this country that say you should be aware so that you have the choice to decide whether you want to step on that piece of land and put yourself in that predicament facing imprisonment or no now has anybody supposed to be aware of it so these days. injunctions fundamentally problematic with human rights that for example in church and in eleven of the human rights allow you to sit down in the road and make approach to them if you long as you want to if you feel that supplies that you need to make yourself. that is the price we all pay for having human rights and having a democratic society and vivian to julian of course on drug treated tension in west london or the ecuadorian embassy as determined by the united nations they could or in foreign minister saying is not complied with agreements to
8:15 pm
not intervene in the internal politics with third party countries it's not a matter of censorship that he has lost all his into that connectivity and indeed some would argue it's going to ready to the outside world of our form of his legal team what do you make of the people to blame are the british government for keeping julian trapped in the embassy because they have been completely he scribbled completely framed and set up and what they do is they keep changing the goal posts i've come up with a term that is really flouting public justice throughout the world and it's called made rule of law and the british government to practice misrule of law they have no legal reason what so ever to keep in there there's nothing. that they can keep in there with they keep inventing things just for the sake of keeping
8:16 pm
in there why this is all to do with america because i think britain would actually like to say to julian ok you can step outside the door we have nothing to arrest you for police you can go but if they do that then they've got the trouble america wants him extradited and they don't want to deal with that you know they don't want to. old america you're our best friend but we don't want to extradite him do you mind know they don't want to do that they don't want to be in that position you know so i think that's what's going on and op going to get him out of there with this move through love law i for the law means i for miss rule of law and not for the law and not help get a jury in the song that i'm going to give free t. shirt so what i'm going to get a pop group to start singing are for the law they already did you know public
8:17 pm
opinions got so big a against mr rule of law they've been arrested joe couric thank you. but what's it for what are your favorite shows from this season will continue to show you fit into we're back for season but with a difference in temperature that comes with us but fish will be easier. to earn. when all the shows seem wrong. why don't we just don't call. yet to ship out just the active. and engaged equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look
8:18 pm
for common ground. to pick. up enough of it. from the. yasi will give you the scoop because we. were talking to this. load of them let's. go let's go get out our last get it one on the list immediately each party spoke. and then a lot of any of us come out of a spirit but only look at him as are a lot of us up the money into. going to. tell you the long island model was almost. to say to me the. place of israel off the wall that was a view made by. other people who go from zero zero zero zero jobs.
8:19 pm
that will not that they at least. feel. when a loved one is murder it's natural to seek the death penalty for the murderer i would prefer it be to live the death penalty just because they think that's the way or think the right thing research shows that for every nine executions one convict is found innocent the idea that we were executing innocent people is terrifying the is just no really the present and that we hear even many of the times families want the death penalty to be abolished the reason we have to keep the death penalty here is because that's what murder victims' families what that's going to give them peace that's going to give them justice and we come in and say. not quite enough we've been through this this isn't the way.
8:20 pm
donald trump's presidency appears to be on shaky ground after two former associates were found guilty of numerous federal crimes the special counsel probe and niche initially launched to investigate alleged collusion with russia has so far only exposed fraud and election campaign of violations where is the grudging you know there's no looking for clues or where you come over to find the killers or. the french interior ministry admits that a terror suspect involved and they foiled attack in two thousand and fourteen was freed by a court due to a bureaucratic failure. russia slams newly enforced u.s. sanctions as counterproductive and meaningless and is failing to respond congress is also mulling over even more aggressive measures against moscow that could hit
8:21 pm
later this year. you're watching r t international bringing you here live news update this hour with me jaclyn virga welcome to the program. there's been plenty of talk this wednesday over double trump's presidency which now appears to be in a precarious position less than two years and two of the president's former associates have been found guilty of federal crimes it's put trump in hot water as his ex lawyer has implicated him as the orchestrator of campaign and financial violations and the media is already getting in a spin over possible impeachment. going to be impeached with this i think the beginning has to be set and mark right now and wolf we're in a watergate moment but there is i think a lot for the president to fear impeachment then list discussed in mainstream media
8:22 pm
discourse today it seems became a little more realistic for trump although it's not exactly what you might think nefarious links the russian agents or collusion with the kremlin something far more mundane as his former lawyer michael cohen pleaded guilty to buying can tax fraud he also admitted guilt in campaign finance charges allegedly paying off former mistresses of trump for their silence on the orders of the now president in a double whammy trump's former campaign manager pulled out of fort was also found guilty of numerous personal fraud charges potentially facing years in prison but what about those russian links after all that's what the attorney general authorized special counsel miller to dig up coordination between the russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of president donald trump they found buying ten tax fraud evasion lies to the f.b.i. hush money but no russian collusion they could use the right here in which we got
8:23 pm
our big. where is the closure you know there's no looking for collusion where is there to lose your finds a delusion it's a day of embarrassment for trump and bad timing too with midterm elections approaching and democrats looking for any i mean if they can find the president though will view this as a vindication a year and a half later after several investigations the russian leak story still seems dead in the water although who knows what else the ongoing investigation will find the fact that they haven't come up with anything and that the all they've managed to claw back with paul metaphor is mis firings and some bank fraud charges. the same with cohen in violation of campaign. regulations finance regulations that proves there is no rush in collusion or they've wasted two years to find fairly pedestrian
8:24 pm
violations sure if you went into any of the campaigns including hillary clinton's and spent two years with an investigation team in the grand juries i'm sure you'd find a lot more than this filings and maybe some violations of campaign finance laws double trump has given his first direct response to his former associates allegations against him the us president went on twitter praising former campaign chief paul man a fort for not breaking under pressure while the same time accusing axler michael cohen of making up stories in order to get a plea deal. the french interior ministry has admitted that a bureaucratic error led to the release of a terror suspect allegedly involved and they foiled attack more details now from artie's maria from the ocean in paris riyadh how did the suspect slip through the cracks. well indeed a very interesting story and alleged islamist terror plot or was freed early in
8:25 pm
april here in france after an investigating judge had to go in to renew his pretrial custody first this information was leaked to the local media but later it was also confirmed by france is justice ministry the country's government spokesperson has called it a failure let's take a listen. we should not afford to go that it is obviously a very failure i think the justice minister already initiated an internal probe to identify the reason for the speech and then introduce certain amendments to prevent such things from happening in the future obviously the priority no use to find this individual one of the man who was one of the defendants in a case of alleged planned terror attack in the leon area here in france in two thousand and fourteen and was also believed to be a part of a terrorist network sending fighters to syria just as ministry in france says that since the man was freed in april he's been under strict traditional control which
8:26 pm
means he was restricted on the movements he was supposed to come to an assigned police officer twice a day to report his activities and whereabouts but just one month after that in may the same and the same man or was found outside the restricted area he was driving a car without a license and there were pictures found on his cell phone that could be classified as islamic state propaganda so very weird indeed and the man appeared in front of the court immediately after this incident and he was freed again it's interesting also to mention that he is one of fifteen defendants in a case of alleged planned attack here in france and eight of these people have already left runs to fight in syria and iraq back to you are two smurf emotional reporting live from paris thank you. the russian leader has slammed washington's latest sanctions against moscow as counterproductive but amir putin's remarks came
8:27 pm
during a joint news conference with the president of finland and so choose. regarding the sanctions those actions are counterproductive and meaningless especially when it comes to a country like russia it's not just about the us president's position it's about the position of the so-called establishment of the ruling class in broader terms and i hope the realisation that this policy has no future will come one day we will cooperate in a normal fashion the first batch of the latest u.s. sanctions against russia are set to come into force this wednesday they focus on exports of american made electronics used in the aeronautical and space industries moscow says the measures won't affect the russian public in november moscow could face a second wave of restrictions described by a u.s. state department official as more draconian this could include more limits on trade and banking and cuts to diplomatic relations the measures under consideration may also ban russia's state airline from entering u.s. airspace washington says the new sanctions are in response to the poisoning of

a russian double agent and his daughter in britain earlier this year investigation into the case is still ongoing and no hard evidence of russia's involvement has been made public. killa bobbins been gauging what americans make of the latest moves against russia well if you watch the recent hearings on capitol hill american politicians are rather alp spoken about what they think about these new moves against russia let's review some of what we recently heard ongoing efforts to interfere in our sacrosanct election process seize and those of our allies are just some of the unacceptable behaviors of the putin regime putin wants to break apart the american republic russia's attempts to interfere in the two thousand and sixteen u.s. presidential election are well and widely known russia has undertaken a campaign of malign activities in its attempt to compete with us our allies and our partners and that's a two thirty one gives us more tools with which to respond however a new gallup poll shows that among the u.s.
8:29 pm
public fifty eight percent that's well over half favor improving relations between the usa and russia and that it's just over a third just over a third thirty six percent that say they want further steps against moscow and now we decided to go out on the streets of new york and talk to people about these new sanctions we spoke to people here's some of the conversations we had on the streets of manhattan more than half of americans want the usa and russia to get along better are you one of those people i wouldn't mind yes one i want everybody to get in on you know thinking unities that we had a good piece. why are we fighting with russia. who knows the truth is i've known only to be in. these tell you one thing that it could be do you have another reason for playing you know they've put sanctions on russia before and according to the officials it hasn't stopped their activities so do you think it's a good move to keep doing that and maybe more the cold war was terrible for
8:30 pm
everybody you know we need to thread the delicate needle of encouraging bad behavior while recognizing that there are a world power that needs to be respected for their capability. you know navigating through that is not simple i think it is important that we do science from a chant they have to be and moving and substances into other countries that were allied with illegal substances in the u.k. period to be related to the gulf many russian anyway more than half of the americans want better relations between the two countries what do you think that costs should be more. and i mean you think it be good for the usa and russia get along right you think so absolutely why can't we get along with russia i mean i think that we can but it would be really difficult right now in the situation that we're in with. you know the current president i mean is nice to get along but you can't trust russia they always been under another me so they get what they deserve a better relationship with everybody i'm in favor of russia and we would think a hundred percent of our country wants
8:31 pm
a better relationship with russia and i would think a hundred percent of russians want to build a relationship with us and the north koreans and the iranians and the mexicans and you know and the people in new jersey for that matter they say that this is the best way to deal with russia's malign activities are these sanctions do you buy that argument now you know you don't really believe anything he where i am led to believe the people that we spoke to seem to overwhelmingly feel that it would be better if the united states and russia could see eye to eye get along more now that certainly just isn't the feeling on capitol hill we've heard a lot of hostility to russia from american politicians but it's just not there on the streets former wall street journal correspondent joe lauria believes u.s. politicians are using the so-called russia threat as a distraction from internal problems the whole thing is quite a conundrum for me why they continue to try to politicize this issue and use sanctions of some way to help them domestically except that they're trying to cover

up their own shortcomings their own short changing of the american people and to try the blame our divisions an article on the crisis in our racial divide here on an on an outside power which is the old. trick in the book going back to the beginning of civilization if the democrats lose or do not do as well as they hope in the november election having used rusher again as their as their main talking point they may have to readjust and realize that the progressive wing of the party is growing and that the american people don't give a damn about russia and that they have to finally address the real issues here and leave this russia issue alone and get back to normal relations with this country that is that it's imperative for. for world peace essentially for. troubles broken out at the border of a spanish enclave in morocco where hundreds of african migrants attempt to storm the coastal city of ceuta in their efforts to reach europe the resulting cautious up police officers attacked with acid.

this seventy pound balaklava are they dumb nike are using a black guy to promote about a club with straps and buckets where there is blood there is money now nike are endorsing gun and knife crime as well as enforcing racial profiling well done why exactly are you promoting a baloch lover in july if this was in winter it least it's hard to criticize there have been thirty five thousand recorded knife crimes in britain over the last two years the highest amount since day that became available and more than a fifth of those arrested for carrying a knife are teenagers or younger among those passion for the headgear a social media comedian white yardy he posted this on instagram. listen to me tonight nike whatever we offer promote it listen to me because right now it looks like you're targeting the young people who are involved in junk and with these recent studies that we've been seeing right now in london this is definitely
8:35 pm
something we know our serious people know we need to put take what you what. explain that you know and don't do it bucky. we had a chance to speak to the comedian who described the balaklava as military looking and doubts whether it's appropriate. that you can so you get in the lots of these killings that have been happening recently i like ten minutes away from my hoax they came up with the wrong timing with this not only that is this something appropriate they should be making because yes this by the two of us we noticed by the club is right there's many stories you can go into a bio but. this one just seems to be more military look at i don't think this was a great idea you should get star why would we should just upgrade why you have better we fix what are you hiding yes i mean we got the thoughts of a few people in london about the product. could be sort of a sportsman like a climber. could be also

8:38 pm
in china were once banned from having more than one child but now in a further push to prove to improve the country's demographics there is a proposal to tax anyone under forty who has only one child or no children at all the u. turn has provoked up or are in the country. i'm
8:39 pm
forty years old now i wanted to have a second child because i wanted my firstborn to have company.
8:40 pm
haven't had a second child or someone else says that's what i'm saying politics as twenty years ago you would feel stiff right because you have children twenty years later that you're forced to pay because you don't like slaves or have to pay taxes for production policies. it is just a proposal for a college professor it is just one opinion to
8:41 pm
a very important problem it takes much. longer time for a proposal to become a public policy the population problem here in china is really don't because currently john has a population of one point three million people bought by some estimates that number could shrink to six hundred million by the year twenty one hundred the shrinking of population and the workforce will pose a serious problem to china socially economically and even politically how to solve it konami it will add burton to the country and the society who should pay for the cost to what end and the benefits of those are the questions that really deserve why grange in public debate. video has emerged of a british police officer slapping a fourteen year old girl during an arrest images soon spread online and fired up reaction from both the public and the police please be aware that the video we're about to show you does contain violence. but you're doing ok.
8:42 pm
ok. ok ok ok ok. ok. ok did you. really say they were responding to a disturbance and valving you finding while officers attempted to get one girl under control the male officer struck the teenager in the face it's claimed that was in response to her trying to grab the officer's taser and radio as a result the girl and a fifty two year old woman were arrested on suspicion of assaulting a police officer two officers had to receive medical treatment from bite marks and cuts to the head the officers actions have divided opinion in britain with some calling for him to be sacked while others praised him for doing a difficult job. why would a fully grown man police officer need to palm strike
8:43 pm
a fourteen year old girl the video shows nothing more than police brutality the officers in question need sacking the open palm head was to disorientate her so they could get her arms she was being very violent in my opinion i'm not force was very necessary meanwhile police chiefs have defended the officer's actions saying the video does not give the full picture of the situation we understand this footage may appear concerning however officers are trained to use restraint economics which may look shocking to an untrained on will curse. let's go live now to peter kirk him who spent more than twenty years serving in london's metropolitan police and george barda from the occupy london equality and social justice movement peter if we could go ahead and start with you what was your assessment of how the officer handled the situation. it certainly looks like
8:44 pm
a use of force that's within the. within the range that you might expect in that sort of situation the chief constable said in a statement those of us that are on the sidelines and don't have the full facts we can't make a full judgment it will depend an awful lot on exactly what happened and exactly what the officer describes doing and why but it certainly appeared to be a reasonable use of force to me on the face of what we can see in the video and george what was your first reaction upon seeing the video. i mean first reaction was shock and dismay and you know of course the focus on text but what was going out to the public is a picture of a fourteen year old girl and it's been described in the media as a slap with the open hand if you watch the video he literally he punched effectively punches her face into a into a metal no he wasn't into metal shutter behind her and clearly what happened. clearly what happens after that is that that creates all sorts of mayhem and
8:45 pm
suddenly a situation where there are two police officers trying to restrain a fourteen year ago becomes a situation where four or five other people are involved they're shouting in the background clearly it causes a lot more a lot more of a public nuisance than there was before you know i don't know what happened before clearly american provocation but it is a policeman's job especially when dealing with a teenage girl not to be provoked into bashing her head into a metal shutter and it looks also very disturbing is if he's trying to push his finger into her are as well and obviously you know this is a great what if yourself online but clearly this is not this is not the kind of image that in a very difficult situation to police and public in many cases this is not the kind of image the police want to be getting out to the public eye much from. peter at the police chief constable has come out saying that those who were filming the incident may have been better using their time helping the officers to calm the situation. is it really the place of bystanders bystanders to go ahead and interact
8:46 pm
with that sort of situation. it's certainly the job of bystanders not to get involved that was when i was like when i meet her in the u.s. i think. i'll let you finish now perhaps you'd let me finish i'm not making facts up a poem she's a punch with a clenched fist that plainly wasn't there you are making something up about poking a finger in an hour that nobody has said before you're making up lies and the likes of you do it all the time you would be better off supporting the police in trying to keep order and questioning why fourteen year old girls are brawling in the streets with other children of that age resulting in the police being called in question in the parent saying instead of questioning the actions of the police doing their best to deal with that situation your part of problem might be. ok i mean i'm getting slightly different is my audiobook all i would say is that.
8:47 pm
he clearly there's a lot of force behind that open hand slap it's not a punch i didn't say it was a punch is not a clenched fist but he clearly it's not it's not from from the side it's from the front and back in the head and clearly that provokes the situation and clearly she reacts to that in a very very violent way and other bystanders don't get involved my job as an activist i think is to try and hold power to account now i would say the plater have at have a horrible job in this country that forty percent cuts at least in the last in the last seven years whatever it is they're dealing with increasing social deprivation and inequality and the consequences that brings about some this isn't about demonizing the police but this is about recognizing that if the police can respond to a video like that with with pure defensiveness i think the problems are only going to get worse between sections of the public that already have a lot of doubts about the police and. and the. but i think it's also important to
8:48 pm
say to respond to what you said that black clothes matter in the us for instance it's not as if the police haven't been brutalizing people for many years it's that people now have smartphones and can record it the reason we're having this important discussion about what is appropriate behavior from the police is because somebody recorded it and as an activist i can tell you that time after time when the police are violent towards us in a very unprovoked way than that then gets framed by the police as assaulting assaulting an officer and so on quite a lot of people have smartphones they're not meant to get involved physically but they should be they should be holding the powers that be to account. as a police officer i can tell you that force is used when it is needed i have been on policing of loads of demonstrations with the likes of yourself and the police do not start using violence protestors provoke situations by going somewhere they are not to go trying to force their way through all by attacking the police what do you expect the police to do when they try to calm her down when the
8:49 pm
others are all trying to get involved and when she's trying to grab the thai user and all the radio what do you expect them to do what would you do. george on that note i wanted to ask you twenty six thousand officers were assaulted in england and wales in the year in this year that's according to the home office if officers are being physically assaulted surely they have the right to respond and restrain someone. i'm not pretending for a second to be an expert on the precise legalities of what force is allowed where when and how and neither am i saying that i know what happened before or after that video but what you clearly see from that video is to a grown man and a grown woman police officer trying to arrest a fourteen year old go when. the man actually is higher in the head and bashes her head into the metal shutters clearly that provokes the situation gets more members of the public involved. that was not good policing as far as i can see in those
8:50 pm
thirty seconds yes he may have been provoked but i think he doesn't so what would you do it because for them to come out of this complete defensiveness. so i wanted to i don't know what that situation what exactly what was going on in that situation where she went to the suggestion but i don't if you use are irrelevant it's two two i don't place ok excuse me to put two grown place officers can find a way of restraining a fourteen year old girl back to them but i'll tell you what you say tell us i just tell us that's why this is this is wise and tell us your the police officer you tell me i mean you tell me have little or no restrain your britches are you saying your saying they're doing it wrong tell them what they should. very simple question and i have no idea what they should do i'm not i'm not the expert on who said i joined you well not a not an effective way to restrain a fourteen what you can clearly see is that millions of people are now going to have a. negative view of the police because they've seen that video and to bash a forty a fully grown male police officer to bash a fourteen year old in the face if they don't look at it if you are out on the
8:51 pm
chinese or what would have done that is effectively saying. what should i do i put that i mean i'm assuming tasers are sort of no i'm assuming the tasers are in a position where somebody within arm's reach can just grab it and press the button straight you know they are the carrot on the phone with their under guard with a guard on the front of the alamo per corson's the card on the front of but i also somebody can somebody can just reach out and press the button and then that will that will electrocute the police officers that were telling me but constructors that i use that i can actually write here i'm not saying and i'm not saying i know the answer so it's going to be an occasional mistake when the officer gets it when i will hear it i'm sorry gentlemen i'm afraid we're going to have to leave it here for the moment that made three times which is that i'm sorry down then we're going to have to leave it here thank you both for joining us is it clear peter heard him . thank you thank you peter curtin who has served for twenty years in the london's metropolitan police and george barda from the occupy london equality and social justice mo movement thank you both for joining us on the program. thank you. that's
8:52 pm
a recap of the day's headline news for now thanks for tuning in. a low and welcome to cross talk we're all things considered i'm peter lavelle remember when the political left stood up for free speech and equality for all and live remember when the mainstream media called for the same tone and tenor of political discourse appears to be a turning point if you don't agree with the left insults harassment and even violence is a new civil war on. cross
8:53 pm
talking political civility i'm joined by my guest rob talbot new york he is a political pundit and journalist contributing to the huffington post in west palm beach we have dr gina loudon she is a psychology expert and host of america trends with dr gina and in los angeles we cross to wrongful cone he is a comedian frequent guest on the jimmy door show and the young turks as well as host of his own streaming show get your news on with ron all right crosstalk rules in effect that means you can jump in anytime you want and i always appreciate gina let me go to you because i know your political stripes pretty well and reflect upon what i had to say in the introduction to mean if you don't agree you face insults harassment and bile and ask representatives beliefs about what it means to be on the receiving end of violence it seems to me and i don't want to overdramatize things but over the last few weeks it seems to me that part of the poll. spectrum
8:54 pm
to normalize political violence in terms of speech at least go ahead gene in west palm beach yeah it's discouraging because i think that my whole political life my thing has been that sometimes i'm wrong and i hold myself out to the fact that i may be wrong but i enjoy the civil discourse is some of my favorite things to do have always been shows like yours where you can have a conversation and a civil dialogue without ridiculing the other person without calling them names without accusing them of some form of bigotry but the left has taken a tack you call it a civil war i'm calling it an uncivil war as a massive step away from the civility and then they tend to want to do this blame game and blame the whole thing on the fact that the president is somebody who hits back just because conservatives traditionally have never hit back and so i think that it puts conservatives like me in a in a really discouraging place and that we've always wanted somebody who would hit
8:55 pm
back the bully on the playground right i think that's a good thing because bullies in politics they shut down civil discourse but in this particular case i think the left has taken it far too far being case one but there are a lot of other cases here that we're seeing almost every day now and the political environment you know. i used to remember is that ok i can understand you know the liberals used to be the ones that were taller and in want to dialogue and wanted to engage people and now we have a president which who can be quite vulgar at times i think everybody on the panel and our viewers would agree many times he's a pretty he's a bit rough ok but why does the left now have to emulate that i mean aren't they supposed to be better they've always presented themselves as being the better part of the political spectrum it seems to me they want to get in the mud. and fight it out that way which is not really part of the left's tradition at least my reading of it go ahead. well there is an old expression that you don't get into
8:56 pm
a peeing match with a skunk and i think it's been a huge error on the part of democrats but i'm going to make it clear donald trump has set the stage for all of this and if there were sixty thousand people in yankee stadium and everybody cheered for him except one person he'd be tweeting about that one person that doesn't like him but i don't think that the democrats are doing the right thing my fellow democrats and in the attacks that they make against trump against his allies just in general i think maxine waters is is the biggest enemy to the democratic party is look like an idiot saying the things that she says and does and i i find it repugnant i've been attacked because. i'll speak and i'll say well as a democrat and then i get blasted on twitter from people saying you can't say that you're not a real democrat you're a phony you're you're you're a plant you're
8:57 pm
a bob and so it's like oh i can't have any kind of dissenting opinion i have to just have an automaton response and you know all the drama will be i mean rob that is what gets me angry with all due respect what do you expect from identity politics ok if that's exactly where it goes you're not getting the old you know then you're an enemy that's what identity politics does let me go to ron ron what does the left hope to achieve by this strategy i mean you know you don't have the leadership speaking out against that schumer said something and then he got attacked for it again identity politics comes into play it's a losing proposition i don't know what the democrats hope to achieve by going down this path go ahead ron but you know i don't want to split hairs on optics here but i think when you're in the in the topic of this conversation when you say the left
8:58 pm
what you're really. furring to is the democratic establishment good in the corporate media and i would argue just for optics sake that's not the left one could argue that something like m.s.m. b.c. and the democratic establishment that is in fact the liberal establishment but when your say liberal you should be using it in the field loek sense percent to the left in the best of times and are sent to the right on it affects them a pretty fair the question that's actually wrong there's nothing actually progressive i agree with that ok but in the end the questions that i set out to everyone here i said stablish minute left so kind of procreation and ok but let's but my question is what does the establishment left want to achieve by taking on this strategy all it does is increase you know it just increases the volume in the temperature of political discourse when we have no to the point where we don't have any ok go ahead ron. oh i agree with you and i think they really
8:59 pm
thrive on creating this a.m.b. dichotomy of hey we're not trump and trump's awful and we're not that when it comes time to talk to policy they really don't have any idea you know we live more than ever before we live in a two party system lewis black said it best the republicans have bad ideas the democrats have no ideas so when you have about absolutely no ideas and when you have this president that's kind of a knee jerk reactionary you know that says you know some outrageous things sometimes what else can you do but then get in get into the match yourself and gauge in the hyper partisan click bait culture that were a part of and try to run with it and hope that maybe you beat a republican or two and twenty the third priority of the democratic party is winning their first priority making sure progressive policies don't happen their second priority which those two things kind of go hand in hand is pleasing their
9:00 pm
donors their third priority maybe beating a republican or two but engaging in just partisan bickering you're getting all three of those things accomplished what you get in those top two things accomplished any ads that third one maybe maybe not so rep a recipe for disaster ok. reflect upon the fact that recently over the last week or so it's been conservative women's particularly that have been attacked in public we don't have to go through all the names are so many of them i mean i thought the democratic party loved women and respected women go ahead gina. yeah we have the whole when they go low we'll go high thing it looks like when someone goes low they're going to go lower the whole war on women thing they've turned that into a war on any woman who disagrees with their politics i would really like to get back to a time where we can have a conversation a little bit like we're having right now frankly where probably the three of us wouldn't agree on policy matters much at all but we can definitely agree that
9:01 pm
civility and conversation are much more intelligent way to go about establishing policy that works for america and slinging insults and especially as you pointed to peter it's the identity politics i would argue not the president the identity politics that have brought the democrats to where they are in what is amounted to a truly uncivil war that is really among the left in this i mean the right we're getting along pretty well not perfectly but pretty well i remember a few years ago when i thought the republican party was imploding but at this point i really think that identity politics is imploding the left that they have got to get some issues to stand on and to work together frankly because even if the three of us four of us sat down and discussed policy we could agree on we could find something that all of us are passionate about and we could fight together on that but rather than that the american people and especially the traditional democrats out there they're watching this lunacy go on the left and thinking i don't know but
9:02 pm
i know that's not what i want and they'll lose in the midterms because of it i feel quite sure at least at this point if something doesn't change fast you know why can't the establishment democrats rein these people in are they afraid or do or they're worried to be their bases drifting to more progressive socialist we could look at what happened in new york i mean what what what what still lack of reaction because it seems like the lack of reaction shows the huge splits within the party go ahead. it's a completely fragmented party right now there is no leadership who can you say is the leader of the democratic party no one since you seem really sensitive booker. maxine so you know and here's the here's my proclamation for the democrats that they bet that they have to get the sky is always blue water is always wet and donald trump is always going to be donald trump so stop complaining about what he
9:03 pm
says and what he does because he's always going to do that why do you throw some policy at us and tell us what you were going to do democrats to get rid of them or if why should we vote them out what what is your plan as a democrat i can't speak to any policy i've heard other than donald trump is a creep and a jerk ok i agree so what are we going to do. ron you're agreeing there now that my point is this it's ever been ever since the campaign that even the election is that the more you go after this guy the mainstream media the more you push him up and it's free advertising what in any any and so much you know you have seen him go out on the road i mean all he does is attack these people and they love it ok they were giving him all his material run yeah you're absolutely right and i'm sorry guys i missed a little bit i was having a check issue on my end it's called got it expressed i thought it was like why was it something i said i don't know if i don't have a good discussion but that everything just kind of went out for me very second so
9:04 pm
if i'm not totally caught up i apologize but yeah i think rob i think i thought of her and you're going to they don't have any policy ideas i don't think that's an accident though and that's why again i'm very disenfranchised by the two party system right now because i don't feel that there's anybody with power in politics with the exception to bernie sanders ok that represents any of the policies are going to jump in here i'm going to jump in here we're going to go to a short break and after that short break we'll continue our discussion on political civility stay with r.t. .
9:05 pm
what politicians do something to. put themselves on the line they get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president i'm sure. some want to. have to go right to the press this is what before three in the morning can't be good. i'm interested always in the waters about how. i should.
9:06 pm
welcome back to crossfire all things are considered i'm peter remind you we're discussing political civility. ok let's go back to ron in. on skype here you right before going to the wreck you want to finish up a point please go ahead. yeah i mean i mean i was just getting at you know rob brings up that e's not seeing any policy ideas from the democrats he's absolutely right i think this is by design i think that really the united states is ready to go in a more populist direction if the four of us you know the four of us sat down and dr gene it was same if the four of us sat down and really talk policy we wouldn't agree on everything we seemed to kind of be all over the spectrum we have different points of views on different things however there would be some really big paler that i think we would all have in common i think we would all want to end the wars and invest that money back home i think we would all want to see
9:07 pm
a populous where where an employment is in better shape we might have some different ideas on how to get there but it's something that we would all want to see happen there would be some big crucial for instances where we would be on the same page who does that not benefit that doesn't benefit the establishment that's right ron let me go to gene and you know why all four of us can have a civil conversation because we don't have to worry about donors really that's reason why ok yes it becomes more of a health care and that's right that's right you know chino one of the things that really ball there is nobody knows a little more or. one of the things that really bothers me about what's going on here is that my first incarnation professionally i was an academic historian and i taught courses at the university of california and i really really hate it when people start using the term nazi and calling someone hitler because i know the history of the twentieth century in europe extremely well and the people on the
9:08 pm
left throwing those terms around are so abjectly. incorrect and without knowledge they don't know what they're actually saying it's a very terrible those are terrible terms and you have to use them very sparingly go ahead gina because that's what gets on my. nerves well that is discouraging to me too for exactly the reasons that ron cited when i believe that there are productive things we could do if we would actually work together and for all the criticism of this president he has been someone who is willing to work with his political enemies and he's willing to sit down with democrats and he's willing to ask their opinion and that's one of the things i like best about him it's even willing to call himself off once he's really decided somebody is a bad person and to stop and listen and if we had a little more of that particular element in our society i think we'd be better the democrats have themselves in a real position and here's why their money is coming from the far extreme left
9:09 pm
those in hollywood and the progressives in general but their votes come from places like the rust belt the unions where the jobs are drying up because of illegal immigration and other sorts of policies that the democrats have passed so the democrats can't figure out how to get both the money and the votes and that's their delimit they're going to have to start to develop if they're going to survive in a two party system as ron referred to they're going to have to develop some sort of policy that can appeal to a broader base and pull from republicans not that i'm here to advise the democrats although that sounds like that's just what i did but i kind of watched some of these problems happen within the republican party not all that long ago and i honestly and you may not believe me as i am on the right and i don't deny that but i've landed here honestly and i'm willing to admit when i'm wrong i honestly crave a government where we have a strong opponent that comes up with good idea yeah so that that makes my side yet
9:10 pm
or i didn't that polishes all of us when we're all on is a very smart observation and i think that's really good it makes the political debate brings it up to a higher level here who are going to this historical thing that i think it's i think it's really important i mean when we have people you know there's like the n.t. for people that you know this really. the french people there are saying that you know. making comparisons to nazi germany well i would say that there is a historical analogy and i would volume our germany where germany was collapsing in the one nine hundred twenty s. for a whole wide variety of issues but there was during that time there was the lack of respect in the breakdown of public discourse that's one of the reasons why the nazis was able to come to they were able to come to power and i think that this is a critical moment that that's a history lesson is if you continue down this path yes you could create a very very disturbing future but we're not there yet and i think people need to step back and and all of us here
9:11 pm
a bit like mine policy policy and more policy i'm tired of the emotions go ahead rob. well first of all as a jew i don't like the word nazi thrown around so arbitrarily and easily i think i'll make it clear i think he's despicable i don't like him he demonizes immigrants but that's not the same thing as what took place in nazi germany and i agree with you peter we have to look at things historically it's it's like what happened in iran with the ayatollah khomeini and we were so upset about that as americans well why did that happen who did we support we support of the shah of iran what republicans used to complain so much vociferous lee when when from el castro took power but we had multinational corporations in cuba paying workers two cents a day there some course there was a revolution so i we have to look at what leads up to things and things donald
9:12 pm
trump didn't just pop out of nowhere and invent himself and just get elected by magic there were things that upset infuriated people and he had a you know voters that came in and elected him and so we have to look at the why instead of again complaining about donald trump oh he's this he's that he's terrible he's a jerk. and tom landry had a great sign when he was coach of the dallas cowboys that said what if there is no what if. so let's let's deal with reality and what's happening right now and again i'm going back to policy policy policy you know ron we had a supreme court justice kennedy announced he's stepping down i'm really worried and they mean if we think the political atmosphere is bad now wait until his successor is announced and before he goes or she goes before congress i mean this is going to be one hell of a storm ahead of this here because it's already started i mean the ink wasn't even
9:13 pm
dry in the document and that war really started flaring out i'm really were. read about how this process is going to work go ahead ron i mean you know i'm also worried about i can service upright or i understand i understand that and i understand i understand but what i'm saying but what i'm saying is that i'm more worried right now is the process because what it does is it taints the entire process it taints the court and now you have people on the left extreme left doubting the constitution itself now there's a lot of things that need to be done but if we don't have the same playing field in the same laws then then we can even further away from communication there is going to be a come from a sion process and now the democrats who get their act together and ask good questions and said destroying their arms up in the air ok that's not going to help anyone go ahead ron. and we'll see what they do i mean when it came to no gorsuch
9:14 pm
they certainly just kind of threw their arms up in the air and in i think that. one of the things that this does for the democrats is it really kind of strengthens their argument of blue no matter who hey look what happened look at the supreme court for all you people that want to actually change within the party for all you people that want to run as progressive straw you people that went to joel stein this is your fault it's not the fault of barack obama who just kind of let his pick go and didn't do anything about it it's not the fault of the democratic establishment who propped up a flawed candidate in arguably the only candidate donald trump was get capable of beating it's not the fault of our political lack of any type of hardball whatsoever and just rolling over to the republicans because a lot of the democrats just go along with the republicans anyway it's your fault the whole supreme court thing just kind of strengthens their blue no matter who argument meanwhile you know we're facing a potential hyper partisan hyper conservative supreme court for years and years to
9:15 pm
come and i respond to something gina said i don't think the problem with the democratic money is necessarily hollywood now this is coming from somebody who the president of show business still will not take my phone call maybe there's a little bit. but i think it's you know they're bought and sold by the same people you know their donors are the pharmaceutical industries their donors are big oil so of course they're not going to come out against fracking because big oil gives them a lot of money of course they're not going to come out you know wall street thank you yes so it's like when you have two parties that are just kind of bought and sold by the same people one party is allowed to represent those people on apologetically because hey we're on the right this is what we do the other party is just a little more subtle about it ok gina you know i really like dineros film sees a great actor i think he made a complete fool out of themselves by making
9:16 pm
a spectacle out of themselves. one of these award gatherings here i mean will it's really time for hollywood to kind of simmer down and you know we give you a few ball actually a lot of books to watch your films but i don't need to hear your political opinions to be honest ok because i don't see how anyone really in hollywood except clint eastwood i can show my prejudice but i don't see that they're particularly well informed and i don't know why they should try to get involved in the political process go ahead yes for example when they're saying you know destroy ice it's only existed for fifteen years that's not true it's just called a different name before so when hollywood comes out on these some of these issues they sort of they make some mistakes because they don't have the historic knowledge that you're talking about and and that doesn't look at either but i think that ron illustrates a really key point here that should be punctuated and that is when when both parties were both listening to the same tune right at the wall street the
9:17 pm
you know whoever came up whoever had the big money because they needed it to be reelected that right there is what i think that people like me who like civility who like you know i am a conservative bona fide as best i can tell again i keep an open mind but i think i am but that's what i liked about donald trump and that's why i elected and worked hard to elect a donald trump it wasn't because he was like me it was because he didn't need or seemed to want or even seem to have a lot of regard for those same groups that had always controlled you know in particular big pharma particular wall street some of those groups he didn't have a need for them he didn't seem to care or give them much regard or even respect and i wanted somebody who would answer to me and i think that the average democrat out there right now they want the same thing they want to politician who's not bought and sold who will answer to them and they can't find that in the democrat party
9:18 pm
like now and that's the conflict i'm going to jump in here. i think the political established left needs to calm down and i would give the same advice to the president of the united states outs all the time we have many thanks to my guests in new york los angeles and west palm beach and thanks to our viewers for watching us here to see you next time and remember crosstalk tools. and i finally in a moment also to take i'm going to let you now how does it live on donkey the point about. lining if you knew you wouldn't be that easy to find and found that out in me. plus is that going to get the muscles to
9:19 pm
people who. didn't. vote but i thought it might have been my little bit of a wonderful enough that i little bit that we are shut out of money coming over as much of the way for the mob to go to pot and. this is one big slice. some for the. see. you can be no problem. join me every thursday on the all excitement chill and i'll be speaking to guests of the world of politics sports business i'm show business i'll see you ben.
9:20 pm
donald trump's presidency appears to be on shaky ground after two former associates are found guilty of numerous federal crimes a special counsel probe and initially launched to investigate alleged collusion with russia so far only exposed fraud and election campaign violations where is the closure you know there's still looking for closure where joe klein took on the issue. also this hour the french interior ministry admits that a terrorist suspect involved in a foil attack in two thousand and fourteen was freed by a court due to a bureaucratic failure. and russia slams new enforce u.s. sanctions as counterproductive and meaningless and is vowing to respond congress is also mulling over even more aggressive measures against moscow that could hit later
9:21 pm
this year. this is r.t. international bringing you your global news update this hour straight from the russian capital welcome to the program there's been plenty of talk this wednesday over double trump's presidency which now appears to be in a precarious position less than two years in two of the president's former associates have been found guilty of federal crimes and that's put trump in hot water as his ex lawyer has implicated him as the orchestrator of campaign and financial violations and the media is already getting a spin up over his possible impeachment. going to be impeached with this i think the beginning has to be set and mark right now and wolf we're in a watergate moment but there is i think a lot for the president to fear impeachment then listen discuss the mainstream
9:22 pm
media discourse today it seems became a little more realistic for trump although it's not exactly what you might think nefarious links the russian agents or collusion with the kremlin something far more mundane as his former lawyer michael cohen pleaded guilty to franken tax fraud he also admitted guilt in campaign finance charges allegedly paying off former mistresses of trump for their silence on the orders of the now president in a double whammy trump's former campaign manager pulled him out of fort was also found guilty of numerous personal fraud charges potentially facing years in prison but what about those russian links after all that's what the attorney general authorized special counsel miller to dig up coordination between the russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of president donald trump they found buying ten tax fraud evasion lies to the f.b.i. hush money but no russian collusion fake news or the right here in which we got
9:23 pm
our pick. where is the crow loser you know there's no looking for collusion where is there to lose your slides or to lose you it's a day of embarrassment for trump and bad timing too with midterm elections approaching and democrats looking for any i mean if they can find the president though will view this as a vindication a year and a half later after several investigations the russian leak story still seems dead in the water although who knows what else the ongoing investigation will find the fact that they haven't come up with anything and that the all they've managed to claw back with paul metaphor is mis firings and some bank fraud charges. the same with cohen in violation of campaign. regulations finance regulations that proves there is no russian collusion or they've wasted two years to find fairly pedestrian violations sure if you went into any of the campaigns including hillary clinton's
9:24 pm
and spent two years with an investigation team in the grand juries i'm sure you'd find a lot more than this filings and maybe some violations of campaign finance laws. donald trump has given his first direct response to his former associates allegations against him the us president went on twitter praising former campaign chief paul man a fort for not breaking under pressure all the same time accusing x. lawyer michael cohen of making up stories in order to get a plea deal. the french interior ministry has admitted that a bureaucratic error led to the release of a terror suspect allegedly involved in a foil attack artie's maria the notion that reports from paris. an interesting story here in fronts and the alleged islamist terror plot who was freed here early in april because an investigating judge had forgotten to renew his pretrial custody and this information was first emerged in the local media but later was also
9:25 pm
confirmed by france's justice ministry the spokesperson of the french government has called it a failure or to go it is obviously agree failure i think the justice minister already negotiated an internal probe to identify the reason for the speed and then introduce amendments to prevent such things from happening in the future because obviously the priority now is to find this individual the man who was one of the defendants in the case over alleged planned terror attack in the new an area here in france in two thousand and fourteen and was also believed to be part of a terrorist network sending fighters to syria he was one of fifteen people accused of being involved in the sixty eight of these people have already left friends to fight in syria and iraq after the man was freed in april justice ministry says he's been under strict additional control which means he had to come to an assigned police officer twice a day to report his activity and his whereabouts and he was restricted on movements
9:26 pm
but just one month after that in may the same a man was found outside the restricted area he was driving a car without a license and there were pictures found on his cell phone that could be classified as islamic state group propaganda the men appeared in front of the judge immediately after that but he was freed again and as we just heard from the government spokesperson now they are sorties are trying to find this man. to discuss this further political analyst bernard rescue joins us live from paris thank you for joining us on the program what are your thoughts on this revelation you know. it was no chance. it could be a joke because it's too tight top and he was treated so i mean it's completely illogical after all we can understand a bureaucratic error one but two times too hard but never it looks just
9:27 pm
uncredible and that's my reaction what else can be and can be saved do you think the fact that the editor a ministry admitted that there was a mistake so that they're not only willing to be transparent but also willing to improve. i don't know i think that this year there was a lot of error. and of course there is bureaucracy but there is also the fact that to try to just it seems runs. over a crowd that i mean there is too little judges for too many chances so there are problems independently from this case but i don't think it's just a bureaucracy error i think insert it's a general. situation and you know things with terrorism and threats and especially things linked with syria and trends are very complicated and unclear so it's very difficult not to imagine that there is something behind the scenes i
9:28 pm
know that it looks like you know a. conspiracy to europe but anyway what do what is going on in france just coming from authorities creates did you know it's a conspiracy to your what lessons should be learned from this situation. push less and i mean we just decent do. you know the terrorists are supposed to beat their families keep control even in jail so if there aren't it looks. it looks more it to most important the prisoners are not under control so i mean it's all do do do administration has to be retooled gets well and i saw has been declared defeated in syria and that means that many foreign fighters are expected to return to their home countries in light of this is that is france in
9:29 pm
a position to handle that challenge. i don't know if you get it we'll come back to france you know because they can go to other countries don't can go to africa where our or where you have french forces enough to make up for example it's very difficult to know who is behind i sneeze and who decide to send their terrorists all over the world they can send them back to france but they can send them back out in other countries. anyway western countries not only france but also united states especially the united states where very unclear with terrorism especially was isis and and al qaeda terrorism so it's certainly you know it's difficult to do to know if they really want to fight terrorism and or if they. use it. because you know in syria it's almost finished in the iraq's too but. we have
9:30 pm
a lot of terrorist cells inside libya in mali and different countries and you know it's just something international and they go from one country to one not your so. western europe is there is a time today we come here but they can go toward your country still. has troops in syria. which most obviously do not fight isis. but anyway. there are troops in syria in design time in france. the administration is not. cryptic and not efficient so it's a very very strong contradiction political analyst burned out in paris thank you for your time and your comments. the russian leader has slammed washington's latest sanctions against moscow as counterproductive but
9:31 pm
a mere pittance remarks came during a joint news conference with the president of finland in sochi. regarding the sanctions those actions are counterproductive and meaningless especially when it comes to a country like russia it's not just about the u.s. president's position it's about the position of the so-called establishment the ruling class in broader terms i hope the realisation that this policy has no future will come one day and we will cooperate in a normal fashion the first batch of the latest u.s. sanctions against russia are set to come into force this wednesday they focus on exports of american made electronics used in the aeronautical and space industries moscow says the measures won't affect the russian public however in november moscow could face a second wave of restrictions described by a us state department official as more draconian this could include more limits on trade and banking and cuts to diplomatic relations the measures under consideration may also ban russia state airline from entering u.s.
9:32 pm
airspace washington says the new sanctions are in response to the poisoning of a russian double agent and his daughter in britain earlier this year the investigation into the case is still ongoing and no hard evidence of russia's involvement has been made public. killed muffin's been gauging what americans make of the latest moves against russia well if you watch the recent hearings on capitol hill american politicians or rather al spoke out about what they think about these new moves against russia let's review some of what we recently heard ongoing efforts to interfere in our sacrosanct election process seize and those of our allies are just some of the unacceptable behaviors of the putin regime putin wants to break apart the american republic russia's attempts to interfere in the two thousand and sixteen u.s. presidential election are well and widely known russia has undertaken a campaign of malign activities in its attempt to compete with us our allies and our partners and that's a two thirty one gives us more tools with which to respond however
9:33 pm
a new gallup poll shows that among the u.s. public fifty eight percent that's well over half favor improving relations between the usa and russia and that it's just over a third just over a third thirty six percent that say they want further steps against moscow and now we decided to go out on the streets of new york and talk to people about these new sanctions we spoke to people here's some of the conversations we had on the streets of manhattan more than half of americans want the usa and russia to get along better are you one of those people i wouldn't mind yes one i want everybody to get in on you know thinking unities the way to go to peace and why are we fighting with russia. who knows the truth is obviously known only to being you know these tell you one thing that it could be do you have another reason for playing you know they've put sanctions on russia before and according to the officials it hasn't stopped their activities so do you think it's a good move to keep doing that and maybe more the cold war was terrible for
9:34 pm
everybody you know we need to thread the delicate needle of not encouraging bad behavior while recognizing that there are a world power that needs to be respected for their capabilities in. you know navigating through that is not simple i think it is important that we do sanction my shan't they have to be and moving and substances into other countries that were allied with illegal substances in the u.k. it is prayed to be related to the gulf many russian anyway more than half of the americans want better relations between the two countries what do you think that costs should be more. and i mean you think it be good for the usa and russia get along right you think so absolutely why can't we get along with russia i mean i think that we can but it would be really difficult right now in the situation that we're in with. you know the current president i mean is nice to get along but you can't trust russia they always been under another me so they get what they deserve a better relationship with everybody i'm in favor of russia and we would think
9:35 pm
a hundred percent of our country wants a better relationship with russia and i would think a hundred percent of russians want to get a relationship with us and the north koreans and the iranians and the mexicans and you know and the people in new jersey for that matter they say that this is the best way to deal with russia's malign activities are these sanctions do you buy that argument now you know you don't really believe anything anymore i am led to believe the people that we spoke to seem to overwhelmingly feel that it would be better if the united states and russia could see eye to eye get along more now that certainly just isn't the feeling on capitol hill we've heard a lot of hostility to russia from american politicians but it's just not there on the streets former wall street journal correspondent joe lauria believes u.s. politicians are using the so-called russian threat as a distraction from internal problems the whole thing is quite a conundrum for me why they continue to try to politicize this issue and use sanctions of some way to help them domestically except that they're trying to cover
9:36 pm
up their own shortcomings their own short changing of the american people and to try the blame our divisions and our economic crisis in our racial divide here on an on an outside power which is the oldest trick in. book going back to the beginning of civilization if the democrats lose or do not do as well as they hope when the member election having used rusher again as their as their main talking point they may have to readjust and realize that the progressive wing of the party is growing and that the american people don't give a damn about russia and that they have to finally address the real issues here and leave this russia issue alone and get back to normal relations with this country that is that it's imperative for for world peace essentially for troubles broken out at the border of a spanish enclave in morocco where hundreds of african migrants attempted to storm the coastal city of ceuta and their efforts to reach europe the resulting clashes saw police officers attacked with acid. i mean i'm sure.
9:37 pm
some of the. police say seven officers suffered burns from acid or a similar substance thrown at them it's the second time in a month that migrants have attempted to breach the border of the spanish territory inside morocco in july around six hundred migrants trying to break through into suit. it's day two of an international military expo taking place in patriot park just outside of moscow and russia's most famous weapons manufacturer the coalition of groups have unveiled a new soon to be all action robot let's take
9:38 pm
a look. the sports giant nike is facing backlash in the u.k. after releasing a controversial winter sports garment with some suggesting the company is cashing in on gang culture the balaklava in question has an attachment that can be quote
9:39 pm
clipped away for easy transit as the ad suggests and it also has a pocket that some say can be used to holster a weapon there's been an angry reaction online. there's multiple stabbings every day around the country a massive gang problem that's getting worse by the day and night he has released this seventy pound balaklava are they dumb nike are using a black guy to promote about a club with straps and buckets where there is blood there is money now nike are endorsing gun and knife crime as well as enforcing racial profiling well why exactly are you promoting about a club or in july if this was in winter at least it's hard to criticize. there have been thirty five thousand recorded knife crimes in britain over the last two years the highest amount since data became available and more than a fifth of those arrested for carrying a knife are teenagers or younger among those bash nike for the head gear is a social media comedian white yardy he posted this on instagram. listen to me nike
9:40 pm
whatever we offer pronounce it listen to him because right now it looks like you're targeting the young people who are involved in junk and with these recent studies that we've been seeing right now in london this is definitely something we know our for c c o's people know we need to protect you what's. explain the you know night don't do it back even though. we had a chance to speak to the comedian who described the ball club as military looking and doubts whether it's appropriate that you can so you get in the lots of these killings that have been happening recently are like ten minutes away from my hoax they came up with the wrong timing with this not only that is this something appropriate they should be making because yes this by the club was we noticed by the club was right there's many stores you can go into and buy a but. this one just seemed to be more military look i don't think this was
9:41 pm
a great idea you should get star why would we should just upgrade why you have better we place what are you hiding from us army. we got the thoughts of a few people in london about the product. could be sort of a sportsman like a climber. could be also a terrorist my immediate reaction is terrorists first so it's a bit scary. but at the same time zone to scare you might be just sports equipment you find a menacing no no the problem is i'm from canada so all i think of is someone being warmed to me it could be a good winter i'd outfit. it's not up healing to me at all i don't think you should be allowed in banks and. it's not just so much that what's going on. is as if these could have i don't know you can see it was so ca them with weapons is that good news guns bullets something like why the trying to cover the
9:42 pm
faggots like. i don't see why you won't which. you wouldn't want to have to face are you not inviting he's not going to make you to buy you know do you know the brand name i don't think it's really a fashion police i think they might have changed colors that is tilted to childless and. i think it's good to. make a profit on the back cold dark kind of image it was encouraged more gangsters in the stuff you think so yeah of course that's nothing to do with nike if they don't get it from nike to get it from someone else if nothing else oh my god one where seen around with people wearing. the company says the product is available in multiple markets around the world adding that it does not condone or encourage gang culture and the way it is now removed the sold out item from its website use an anti-violence activist paul mckenzie it says that companies like nike should bear
9:43 pm
more social responsibility. they're worn by skiers and snowboarders i agree and i fully agree with that but they're also been warned by gangs in london and also be used to cover the faces of known gang members a lot of the young people i work with are now buying these by the club as i'm actually seeing these by the club as on a day to day basis and i'm seeing the being worn by children who do not ski or do not snowboard they actually go out and use those in their crimes and the way that young people look at the use of about the club are now as part of a gang or this part of going attire now in my opinion these brands need to be a little bit more socially responsible when your brand is so desirable and when there is a trend of the moment of young people killing themselves in london who are using figures like baloch lovers to hide their faces on a day to day basis. people in china were once banned from having more than one child but now and a further push to improve the country's demographics there's
9:44 pm
a proposal to tax anyone under forty who only has one child or no children at all the u. turn has provoked uproar in the country. who will meet up with the other.
9:45 pm
funny years old now i want you to have a second child because. one in my first born to have company. haven't had a second challenge take or someone else says that's what i'm saying politics at least two years ago you would feel differently because you have children twenty years later that you're forced to pay because you don't like slaves that have to pay taxes proper duction policies. it is just a proposal for
9:46 pm
a college professor it is just one opinion to a very important problem it takes much longer time for a proposal to become a public policy of population problem here and john it is really don't take because currently china has a population of one point three billion people but by some estimates that number could shrink to six hundred million by the year twenty one hundred the shrinking of population and the workforce will pose a serious problem to china socially economically and even politically how the salt economically it will add burden to the country and the society who should pay for the cost to what end and the benefits and who those are the questions that really deserve wide ranging public debate that's a recap of the day's headlines for now but don't forget you can find us on all of our favorite social media platforms for up to the minute reports thanks for tuning

in this hour. child's seemed wrong but old roles just don't call. me old yet to shape out this day comes to educate and in gain strength because betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground the. when a loved one is murder it's natural to seek the death penalty for the murder i would
9:48 pm
prefer it be willin the death penalty just because i think that's the fair thing the right thing research shows that for every nine executions one convict just found innocent the idea that we were executing innocent people is terrifying and the is just no way that hasn't been that we hear even many of the times families want the death penalty to be abolished the reason we have to keep the death penalty here is because that's what murder victim's families what that's going to give them peace that's going to give them justice and we come in and say. not quite enough we've been through this this isn't the way.
