thanks for joining us this hour. across the stricken starving brutal rule venezuela has been described many ways in the west the media recently. explains though there's a new label being pinned on the south american country to president. you can take a man out of business but you can't take business out of the man apparently u.s. president donald trump is living proof of that he's been tailoring this image of corporate sharks for decades and is now taking the approach to politics the potential of venezuela. don't properly and with with democracy it would be incredible it was one of the richest companies certainly and now it's one of the poorest gulf countries of the world a slip of the tongue for sure but could it be
a fraud and one well he seems to have appointed venezuela's new c.e.o. a long time ago i mean what else could one why do be in this i mean as an owner trump would want a man he can trust running this venture it has been an expensive one and the u.s. plans to invest more into it. the budget also would continue democracy assistance for venezuela and includes new flexibility to provide additional funds to support a democratic transition or respond to the crisis there including up to five hundred million dollars in transfer authority to support programs managed by the state department and usaid venezuela has proven to be an important asset for trump for sure but after all it's not the only one tells and golf courses are going to manage themselves so venezuela has to share trump attention it's only natural if the little things escape his gaze like the fact that some of the investment was literally set ablaze by those for whom it was intended they don't take the girl or
take gate they've sent hundreds of millions of dollars worth of aid to the border who would take the. ground there was people starve than take the america's good even from a political standpoint even from a dictator standpoint of the scale it was why dose support is not much duros who said those trucks with aid on fire but perhaps just an honest mistake by an employee right as former duro he did lead aid in except not from the us but from russia and that is one of the obvious differences between trump's companies and sovereign states the latter can do business with whoever they please but in donald trump said it's all the same competitors must not take over. to get out. will say we all options are out all just so you understand all options are off.
another thing our business is different you can bankrupt it and its workers can at least hope to get paid leave and find employment elsewhere a country that's a slightly different scale. trump is a business representing the capitalist class in the us and what they want to lay hold in see an enormous. trump has absolutely no interest in the lives of the average person. interested in. money. or pence or any group of nato generals has absolutely no right to speak on any matter regarding our sovereignty and every one of the actions they have taken are a complete violation of international law and of the un charter.
a ship seized by migrants in the mediterranean has now arrived in malta multis forces earlier boarded the small tanker and guarded it to a port near the capital letter more than one hundred moderates are on board including twelve children and other refugees were picked up on wednesday by the turkish merchant vessel however when they learned they would be returned to libya they seized control of the ship and set course for europe four people have reportedly been arrested over the hard italian interior minister moto soviet called the incident piracy. it is the first case the first act of piracy of delinquency on the high seas with immigrants asking for help who were rescued by this merchant ship flying a foreign flag six miles from tripoli they hijacked the freighter saying no do not go south go north they're not castaways they are pirates will italy's coalition
government set a goal of curbing migration into the country while the european union has a doubts that will suspend maritime patrols that have rescued thousands of refugees and asylum seekers instead of plans air patrols and close coordination with libya which is the main starting point of refugees and migrants try. across the sea from north africa to europe we spoke to london metropolitan university senior research fellow george some well if you think that the migration crisis is no responsibility . well i think it's the the problem the europeans are going to have is that you have this very powerful forces. within europe that are welcoming the migrants i'm sure that the initial response of the multi-source origins will be we are not letting anybody in. but in the now or. in the human rights the amnesty international the george soros crowd will say my god this is inhumane european civilization is coming to an end these are people
fleeing from most horrific tortures and murder and rape you have to let them in and i think in those circumstances it's going to be very hard for the maltese and the talents to say no. online campaign has been launched against the u.s. drugmaker accuse the inflating prices of an empty hiv drug by thousands of dollars it turns out the company doesn't even own the patent for the treatments and warplanes got the full story. all across the american political spectrum almost everyone seems to agree that prescription drug costs are too high we will never stop fighting for our children our seniors and those in need of prescription drugs and working families who cannot afford the escalation of cost the drug lobby is making an absolute fortune at the expense of american consumers but the big companies couldn't care less about the government's opinion gilead sciences takes
the prize among hated pharma giants its new medication for people who've been infected with hiv is selling for roughly sixteen hundred to two thousand dollars a month needless to say there has been outrage we're here today u.s.c.a. to protest the the. pricing their new combination therapies strike there's no valid reason for it to be priced it's purely greed and profit driven by their new h.i.v. drug provide abroad in a whopping three billion dollars last year but they deserve to be compensated for their creativity and innovation making a new product right well here's the thing it turns out that it was actually us taxpayer money that paid for developing the new drug the scientific research and the testing necessary it was all paid for by the us government however it's guilty of stockholders that get the profits no royalties of any kind are being paid into the u.s. treasury essentially right and i bet is a huge problem with access to expose your profile access or perhaps in the united
states to prevent a champion action basically there's a lot of low income communities people of color trans women who are not being able to access this drug and a huge part of that is because the company that makes it go in and sciences charge is sixteen hundred dollars for a drug that only costs six dollars now there is similar outrage when gilliam started charging over one thousand dollars a pill for its hepatitis c. drug cartel for her. but. now there's another famous case of the chief executive turning pharmaceuticals martin squarely jacking up the price of a jar of pram an anti parasite medication five thousand percent from its initial cost of thirteen fifteen and when pressed in congress to justify his reasoning mr lee seemed to laugh in their faces i want to plead with you to use any remaining influence you have over your former company to pressure them to lower the price of
these drugs you can look away if you like but i wish you could see the faces of people no matter what misreads let's say. who can get the drugs now justice was served but in another fashion the c.e.o. mr scrawly was convicted on two counts of securities fraud and sent to seven years in prison the price of daraa primero ever has never lowered all of this seems to point to the fact that big pharma has got the u.s. public in a position of weakness for someone infected with hiv trivago it could be life or death needless to say people in such circumstances are pretty ripe for being gallows but this raises a bigger question how much freedom should influential corporations have especially when they are receiving so much government assistance in order to do their work caleb oppen r.t. new york britain's conundrum the u.k. parliament still fighting to find a clear path to leave the e.u.
and peace had eight options to choose from a vote on wednesday but none of the ideas came to play a majority included holding a second before and i'm voting on tickle fifty and even staying in the e.u. for two years. as you try to remind ourselves what we've decided to do nothing. at all i think the public will look at on these proceedings in. amazement it's. my will be completely bemused by what has gone on this is a very serious moment for all of us and we have to reflect that this house of commons has tried to find a way through the threats that crisis over the last few months and we have feel. it is of course a very great disappointment that the house has not chosen to find a majority for any proposition it does simplify what is now one offer which really is exit in the european union as we've just heard with
a deal or we've no deal at all that is now what's on offer and it was read pressurize a lot of the m.p.'s if theresa may can bring her deal back to the house which will be seen now as hugely important to do because actually that's going to be the only option and. then leave in the european union with harper but meanwhile to reason may says she's prepared to resign if it means her bricks were getting through parliament according to downing street the concession came at a closed doors meeting with conservative m.p.'s i'm prepared to leave this job earlier than i intended in order to do what is right for our country and our party i ask everyone in this room to back the deal so we can complete our historic duty to deliver on the decision of the british people and leave the european union with a smooth and orderly bracks set the u.k.'s opposition leader jeremy corbyn reacted
to that saying may's proposal was about party management not the interests of british citizens. which of government should be the people's the second. well economist guarantee johns and nelson mccausland the former social development minister in northern ireland's think that the reason most proposal will not solve the problem is with bricks or. many tears will be encouraged by her in the interim she is going but the position i think for the do you pay for the past majority of you know. this the. house currently on the table. for you is only acceptable whether she stays or whether she goes the problem for them remains that the backstop is deeply deeply problematic the british approach to british it has been entirely governed by party politics this is. the conservative
party together by proposing a kind of compromise arrangement that to some extent at least satisfy the hard line and also there remain are some sort of bricks and says. this is just the latest in what's been a pretty turbulent few weeks in westminster for an alternative view of the brics saga to shake up latest episode of in case you missed. yeah yeah loud and clear yeah well would you think that we have more. free news in the imminent arrival of baby brags that now little baby brags it's due date with meant to be that when the ninth of march but doctors in. that maybe do just that they said there's been a bit of excitement because we saw somebody very gay related to a little baby brags that go inside this building which is also vaguely related to
a little baby brags that now we know the mother has been experiencing substantial difficulties high blood pressure severe morning sickness she hasn't been able to keep anything down for months whatever she tries to get through it just keeps getting regurgitated now as you can imagine this is an extremely difficult situation for the mother she never wanted this to begin with then according to our reports. the father is trying to disown the baby brags that according to one source he was last seen in nice with this truck has. now we don't know if it's going to be a hard or a soft delivery who does the chances of a normal elective emergency c. election which is a dangerous procedure and it carries a lot of risk for there was outcome the plane be could just pull out
now some have called for the baby to stay where it is rather than risk about such just look at the crowds out here hugh so much anticipation people want to know when the baby brags it is going to be delivered and of course many are concerned about the risk of a still. just in a few moments time the darkside of america's presence in japan and how the wife of a u.s. marine is giving the rape victims their voice will back just a few moments. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy to for him to let it be an arms race in this off and spearing dramatic development that only engages resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time
to sit down and talk. you know world a big part of the law and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to get the stories that make stream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smart we need to stop. slamming the door on the back and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the troops the time is now we're watching closely watching the hawks.
while the international oil authorities in japan face a public backlash on the results of a referendum on u.s. military bases on all can all go to american women are helping victims of sexual assault by u.s. servicemen in the country adrian perry told us why she thought the group there reason that i wanted to create survivors united is because when my in our family was going through we went through i was so lost i didn't know where to turn for help i didn't know who to trust i didn't know and you know what answer what questions to ask i didn't know what to search for i feel like the military justice system is it antiquated system and it has not caught up with the times today to be able to accommodate the cases that we're seeing in to adjudicate successful age adjudicate cases that we're seeing this is this is not and negative light that's being shown on our military and this is a positive that we we don't want this behavior happening. the full time
bice is located in a densely populated area. of all american troops stationed in japan locals about right by the behavior of u.s. troops who've been involved in numerous crimes over the years the u.s. and japan have been locked in debates over whether it's a rule of take the bikes for more than twenty years many want to off the all of them together. it's. just. it's human nature any institution in any culture and there's going to be bad apples
and unfortunately there are bad apples in the united states military just like there are in any other military in the world and. if these crimes are committed against foreign nationals in whatever country they are our military station and i want them to know that they have a boys that these these survivors of abuse sexual abuse by our service members if it occurs have a voice and if they have somewhere to go and they can pursue justice just because they were sexually abused by the united states military member does it mean that they have to stay silent if they don't want to you and i do understand that not everyone wants to pursue justice but at least they can know what their options are what their rights are and then they can decide to they can pursue justice and. to not be scared to do so. and you polls suggest the findings of special counsel
robert mood on alleged russia collusion has had little effect on americans on sunday the two year long investigation concluded that there was no sign of a conspiracy between the american president and the crime of according to the poll almost half of those surveyed to some extent believe that trump or his team did collude with russia during the twenty sixteen presidential campaign opinion was split if the democrats in congress should continue digging into trump including those alleged ties with russia or end up filing an overwhelming majority said the findings of the moon report hasn't changed their minds at all we spoke directly to some people on the streets of new york. do you still think that trump colluded with russia. yeah yeah he's a traitor i don't trust their report my don't trust any of them because ultimately . it's a conspiracy. to make america races again they're all around trial but somehow trump is that involved it just seems strange to me that people are drawn i can
because he's a rich guy well what is the media been saying about it for the past few years it's always been looted he's definitely clued into these everything loaded and therefore comes out as occluded everyone still believing that so happened the main stream press has completely given up and its standards in reporting this story i mean the new york from the new york times to the washington post to c.n.n. and especially in this in d.c. . the other news networks and they have just been all over to each other trying to beat each other with the latest rumor and skin to ring on. including this specially the russian collusion thing so it's on the news every night russian collusion russian collusion and people are watching at four to six hours a day it's mind numbing it's the end of your work day you come home and you watch that with a beer and you know it just sinks into your skull it's propaganda. the decision to recognize israeli sovereignty over the golan heights has seen the u.s.
roundly condemned during an emergency un security council meeting it's a disputed area that straddles israel syria jordan and lebanon which israel annexed from sarah in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven even washington's close allies oppose this latest move. this decision is of critical critical strategic and security importance to the state of israel and the u.s. believes it can contribute to stability the decision by the united states to recognize israeli seventy over the golan heights is in contravention of security council resolution four nine seven thank you show your site steps not only one of the norms of international law but also the security council resolutions we are concerned that this unilateral decision not only complicates the prospect of find an egg i'm friends of settlement in the middle east by pleats to instability in the region and the trumpet administrator apparently wants to show some generosity
towards israel we would suggest the americans not to lay their hands on what is not theirs the us itself is in doubt with the vast expanses of land so the americans could get the israelis north and south carolina for example why not south carolina is a great piece of land why not give israel a state or two if this administration really wants to have israel support their golan heights either it will always be either out of sovereign territory we thank the united states for the jazz then you started problem asian or this there plague many others it as they can before shoulder their willingness of the united states to honor reality on the ground instead of recruiting regionals but really it's undermining that really seems to be. pretty much universally being criticized. undermining our. international our you know and even that you
won't surrender be the statements of traditional allies like the u.k. you're being very critical of the us position on your is a significant. trend in the increasing isolation up. the united states will achieve its getting cozy with israel but it. seems to be little by little dorothy is traditional european allies. those that lines for us our thanks for staying with us at all times rational join us in thirty minutes for the latest global news updates. breaks at countdown. what
politicians do. put themselves on the line. to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. or somehow want to. get to the right to be crossing the slide limit for three in the morning can't be good. i'm interested always in the waters of our shack. when lawmakers manufacture come sentenced him to public wealth. when the ruling classes some protect themselves. when the financial merry go round lifts only the one percent told. to ignore middle of the room signals. from the more you leave
. three. months. because i was going on the phone one mobile i don't make a name for the moment and i don't know why schmidt came from memphis machine but if . it's something. put me in the middle of the good that they've got it off the pad and you saw them on the line. with us i've got to get the last live. if you get a line that says it all that people. want to start on it's us good to shred the
blue zones of out on either side of the site because. of us of one of the stone in charge of the show could put them on film if one wants. to. push on if. welcome to the circus. so we're now going into what we call the go to song sometimes. good means flower or sun means storm. sun means flowers that can grow even on storms. the circus country which is located in afghanistan but i think is very different
than. that in the rest of arkansas and. there it from denmark is one of the films as of the couple circus which is barely bigger than the average afghan backyard. in afghanistan things everything is designed made organized for adults. so adults decide at all think. adult know what is the right thing his office is. now we are practicing for. one of the very big shows we do a lot of shows in schools on different places but the big shows takes of course a longer time to practice for ronald reagan and ronald reagan was a labor of. love it was. close no.
