1:08 pm
criminal charges what we do know is that his political asylum here has become an embarrassment to the french authorities. major health fears are being raised of what's become one of the worst biggest dumping grounds for electronic waste the african country have gotten everything from all bubble phones to computers the same for incineration they're releasing highly toxic chemicals known to cause deadly diseases including cancer. don't you fall would. do anything. noble from deep with
1:09 pm
such as you said today to be so i've got a few margin for the car seat it will simply last for 30 more what in my head i had the. day he did end up in deep they've. been running from the european union. for a review. 300 of them. for like 20 quid if. it can be trying generation now transfer. to my child and might
1:10 pm
pass it. i read it 3 did before you know my pledge of improvements under things and in the cards and making our crowd the cream of the city you know in africa. i recalled back to both the guardian president's office environment ministry for comment annoyed the respondents so far to our request. tens of thousands of men taking a stand against racism in germany throughout the week that followed wednesday's terror attack and how now in which 9 people were killed in the town where the tragedy happened to hamburg in the north over 600 kilometers away people could be seen carrying banners against racism and extremism the attack on us was described by police as racially motivated.
1:11 pm
and in the wake of the shootings the establishment in berlin was quick to point the finger at and t. moderate rivals saudi alternative for germany party in particular accused of having extremist tendencies the f.t. rejected the claims and says the shooter was mentally ill that didn't stop the ruling christian democratic union though from calling to cut all ties with their rivals. 1000000 theater i insured if you look at their taxes profile it seems like
1:12 pm
he had racist xenophobic as well as far right motives and this trends mean my belief that for the c.d.u. you should always be clear not only for the c.d.u. but for all parties in germany that they can be no corporation with a party which tolerates far right extremists and let's call a spade a spade not since in monitoring so we are resolved to have no cooperation with the f.d.a. in any shape or form it's important to keep the spirals we have a level in the public debate that is more of a child and a rational political debate and when i hear yesterday night about it shooting i instinctively knew that our opponents would blame us for being responsible for it it is completely ridiculous and i can only ask everyone to read that money fester of this crazy terrorist and then compare it to what we're doing and then it's all views that it's nonsense it's just fake news and of course we fight against it
1:13 pm
fic news. now after sweeping to victory in the 1st 3 contests in the us democratic primary senator bernie sanders is now the clear favorite to take the party's presidential nomination following the self described socialists latest win in the nevada caucus some in the media are becoming increasingly concerned there are some receives even facing calls to fire one of his host of the he said this i was reading last dive right into your history guide to reading last night about the 4 friends in the summer of $940.00 and the general reno cause of churchill and says it's over and shares it how can it be you've got the greatest army in europe are going to be over he said it's over so i had a pretty suppressed feeling. it is absolutely unacceptable the matthews is making comparisons between bernie sanders whose family was murdered by nazis to nazis i mean b c's meltdown over sanders when shows the networks real by
1:14 pm
a preference for rich elites over the working class would you would you still surely stance was able to win in advance the very big bring chris matthews explained just like did not seem friends with just over half of the precincts called in nevada bernie sanders has a higher percentage of the vote than his top 3 rivals combined former vice president joe biden is in a distant 2nd place followed by peter and senator elizabeth warren the next contest will be the south carolina primary at the end of this month before 14 states take to the polls on so-called super tuesday on the 3rd of march. bernie sanders hasn't commented on the everson we see controversy but has warned both republicans and democrats that he's unstoppable and joining us now is political analyst charles alltel for more on this thanks for joining us good to have you on today do you think there are any grounds to believe the extra an establishment so-called establishment is opposed to bernie sanders taking the nomination.
1:15 pm
well you know i mean i think the democratic establishment understands that a democratic socialist is never going to be president ited states in the next i'd say 50 years and certainly not somebody who's just had a heart attack who honeymoon in the soviet union who has as mike bloomberg correctly noted is doing very well for a socialist with a $1000000.00 net worth 3 homes. and is a big gun rights advocate so i mean i think he's in a unique position actually to alienate the democratic moderates and inflame trump supporters to come out in force even more so in 2020 than they did in 2016. what do you make of these theories that russia has been supporting saw us come by and i just want to take a listen to this former adviser to bill clinton giving his take on the nevada caucus let's take a quick listen what he had to say at the a person right now it's about one in 15 moscow time this thing is going very well
1:16 pm
for blair and the approach i promise you he probably stay end up watching us right now you don't like that this has been something that's been making the headlines has that what do you i mean do you think to what extent is invoking the russian threat on that the moscow backing here useful political toll to beat saunas over the head with. well with great respect i think that when you when we look at that hard figures hard economic figures about which economy in the world is is the greatest potential threat and which frankly country in the world is the greatest potential threat the united states it is certainly not russia it is china and i don't wish what's going on in china and the chinese people it's a dreadful thing to watch what's going on in hong kong and now this coronavirus but honestly the the the mainstream elites in this country and across the west have been sucking up to china since 1989 many of them derive substantial sums of
1:17 pm
money through their think tanks and universities in other ways and i think these these mainstream elites are terrified that the american people in the wider world will cut not to this so they've come up with a straw argument that it's you very busy people of russia who you know are hard at work on your own economy but somehow seem very interested in bellingen primaries in general elections i mean it's just it's a fairy tale based on the evidence that's all there for us to see and i really do think what we're going to start to see the united states is more and more hostility not towards russia but frankly towards china. and in terms of the democratic candidates i mean the party has been hit by by division by scandal do you think any of them will be able to seriously at shadows don't trump whoever gets the final emanation. well i think bernie was right when he talked about bloomberg and his poor $62000000000.00 and bernie said that in the general election trampled chew up
1:18 pm
and spit him out i think he's absolutely right there is one candidate who could maintain the fiction of being a viable candidate from may through november and that's michelle obama. on the democratic side she would be a tougher candidate for donald trump to attack in the way he might attack bernie sanders but not certainly none of the announced candidates i mean. no way dispute but people to judge is not qualified to be had a president of the boy scouts of america now bankrupt let alone a senator or president eyes states elizabeth warren is an appalling fake need i go on i mean there are stomach rats are the weakest field i've seen in my lifetime. never a dull day in american politics i guess we have to see what happens on super tuesday as well to see what comes next political analyst charles alltel thanks for joining us here good to have your. the u.s. house speaker has been turning the screw on brussels warning europe to ditch wall
1:19 pm
way technologies democrat nancy pelosi insists the chinese telecoms giant is a major security threat and should be barred from developing lives you know works in the e.u. which could be used for spying but you fail to mention what makes america's own far reaching bubble surveillance network a better alternative scalable and explains. now that the impeachment debacle is all wrapped up guess who's going to europe in order to promote one of the trumpet ministrations key policies it's the speech ripper herself nancy pelosi the speaker of the u.s. house of representatives is urging european countries to drop plans to use while away as their 5 g. carrier for the benefit of a few corporations you cannot sell the privacy of the people of your country down the river as i said before it's like having the state police write the chinese state police right in your pocket you see nancy pelosi just cares about your privacy odd that she's one of what edward snowden called the gang of 8 key figures
1:20 pm
that are overseeing surveillance in the united states is far and snowden he did there on the in the in disagreement with you he did violate the law in terms. of for leasing those documents we don't know i understand. odd timing as well it's just been revealed that the cia was the secret owner of a swiss company that was offering people encrypt people's privacy was compromised because the cia had a backdoor what the u.s. government speculates that china might be doing they have been caught doing themselves while the e.u. might be more apt to listen to a top democrat then to the donald it seems they still aren't buying nancy's song and dance her euro 2 were is a flop. while
1:21 pm
he will be able to continue in france and will not be excluded from flying we will censor such numbers restrictions it takes us to see so we decided to ask people what they think of this supposed danger of china spying on them are they more afraid of china spying on them or the american progress or us and i'm not so much worried about. china i'm worried about anybody having access to our data. be more. ready to spy on you know in the chinese it could come from anywhere in the world u.s. . you can you would i guess just the u.s. given say the alignment of interests that program for the u.s. probably you know well the u.s. is far as i'm concerned. can go to hell i don't know trump along with them it's a common pattern of human behavior sigmund freud called it projection nothing drives us crazy or thinking that someone else might be doing that naughty thing
1:22 pm
