a much fatter splines the crippled union so no one could stomach the way to turn the key dismantle the financial rules meant to keep us safe after the great depression and cut their own taxes so they paid less than their secretaries and janitors it's time to write the rules for the wire after wall street crashed our economy in two thousand and eight i left the classroom to go to washington and come from the broken system head on. al jazeera she have a chance he is following all the developments and joins us now live share what kind of a democrat says she was a style. well it is that sort of down to earth stuff which is very attractive she doesn't seem pretentious she doesn't seem boortz more importantly she seems or fence and although there were some problems recently when partly due to don't trust criticism of her as pretending to have native american heritage trouble is called pocahontas she went through the process of having a d.n.a.
test to which did prove that she had some. native american d.n.a. but that only actually really infuriated a lot of native americans as a d.n.a. isn't the way that you find out whether someone is connected to you that they do american nations but she is other than that blip she is thought of as very authentic she does have a very similar message to bernie saunders in that she's talking about inequality the rigged system but she has two features that may appeal more to centrist democrats one she is a democrat bernie sanders is an independent and she doesn't claim to be a socialist she is she is a capitalist she says and she's quite open about that so she is i mean she has a lot of credibility on these issues i mean she was talking about these issues even before bernie sanders became prominent as you as a senator before the last election so she does have a lot of credibility on inequality and she also has these other features that may appeal more to more to centrists who are worried about the progressive wing of course detract will be saying if indeed he is going to run can she face him she's
not going to be in quite a crowded field on the democrats signed by the sounds of it. and it's been noted that she did mention don't trump in that video in her statements and that's not just because she doesn't want to talk about trump it's also because a lot of the message that she's giving here against corporatism against corruption against wall street is aimed at the democratic party as well it's aimed at the clinton center wrists who are the greatest friends of wall street the greatest recipients of money from wall street the very people that elizabeth warren and bernie sanders on progressive instead have basically destroyed america made it into into this only go ok so we know that the corporate democrats the clintonian way are terrified of the rise of the progressives they've already been meeting in retreats often with billionaire lobbyists to try and see trump loss on how to how to how to make sure that the progressives don't get any further but the progressives do have this very very powerful message which is look you all the ones who lost to donald
trump last time with your message you don't seem to have changed your policies you still don't understand how politics has changed politics has changed so who are you to tell us how to win against old trumpets melton and bernie sanders would have done at this time now it's time for a progressive to try again interesting times ahead she have a town say thank you very much. almost one hundred fifty thousand security officers have been deployed across france and of new year's celebrations antigovernment protests are expected donations and these a this comes as president mccall pass a make a t.v. address outlining his vision for the country and twenty nineteen for more on this let's speak to bernard smith who is in paris what is the president been saying. series just wrapped up his annual speech just as we came on i've been clearly what he's had to say has been affected by the yellow bus protests in the last couple of
months that started in november and clearly in a lot of what he was saying was addressing those concerns and he said that he wants twenty nineteen he said to be. more decisive here when france will move forward he said in many of the things that they promised to do in terms of improving education improving health and he talked about wanting to address the issue of long term unemployed and try and help people who are without jobs but he also listed a series of wishes that he had for france next year interesting is first of all was a wish for truth particular point he was making about the prevalence of fake news and he was saying that you know we have to pay taxes for the things that we want in this country we cannot live we cannot have all the things we want that we don't pay for them we have to we have to be realistic and we have to address those issues he said and he said day also how to wish for dignity he spoke particularly this again was i think an address to the people who the yellow best of protesters they are the
majority of whom are people who having difficulty making ends meet the working classes the low middle classes who just can't make ends meet every month with a small paychecks they have and he recognized that he said i want more dignity for those mothers looking after their children to the farmers the working the lines so an appeal really i were a real direct appeal i think to those people who can protest. on the streets already earlier this year offered various concessions to them a couple of weeks ago tax cuts and improvements an increase in the minimum wage but this was another reaching out of those people are being so beautifully festive behind their berthing it's fair to say around the country things haven't been looking quite so festive perhaps preparations for what might indeed take place across from us. but. what i think you know here on the show is elise a it's crowded there's a lot of security you can't when you try and come on to the shows elisei tonight they'll take anybody's got any alcohol is taken off you cans of beer that sort of
thing the taken off small fireworks poppers and things that burst confetti they've been taken off people and there is generally though a very sort of calm mood looking forward to the fireworks displays will come out of the eiffel tower at midnight tonight that have been calls for yellow bus protesters to celebrate new year here on the show as a leader about this time i haven't seen any as yet but there might appear later on and has spent their life for us in paris thank you. and the dishes prime minister shake a scene has rejected calls for a new vote after being declared the landslide winner in sunday's election police say at least seventeen people have been killed including seven from the ruling party and five from the opposition alliance the opposition has rejected the results accusing the government of vote rigging shall strafford reports from the capital dhaka. bangladesh is ruling party still hanging by the

a twenty seven team collaboration with d.j. dummy drawing inspiration from issues like the standing rock protests and donald trump's treatment of women tracks and wanted to be take on modern day realities with classic soul and r. and d. style we want to welcome i mean a use of to the stream i really know well. if we get anything wrong well we know. you have a unique backstory i guarantee no one else has a back story like yours to prove i'm going to show our audience some pictures of you let's start with this one here have a look on my laptop this is stunning i'm going to show a picture of your grandmother and your mother this is where your musical inspiration the musical education started would you explain because a lot of people we look at these pictures don't say what. tell us.
i learned to sing at home with my mother and my grandmother in the kitchen a lot of times people were x. my mother was a vocal coach to train them to sing and they think that she's going to you know set up at a piano and teach them notes and she'll make them come you know shop corn and pick greens and because for traditional people singing is. like breathing is like praying it is a part of what you do as as a person as a part of the community you know as. social have you come feel the song breathe the song do chores you know it's a part of life a living part of expression when i was a small girl i would always see my mother my grandmother people would call them and they would travel all around. people to take pain out of their bodies to sing into their bodies in you know later on you may look at it doctors use the vibration of sound to move matter inside of bodies and they were doing this with their voices you know not educated in the western sense but they knew the power of sound and
vibration so that's kind of how i started. both my parents i mean my parents and my grandparents had already converted to islam but my grandmother was a choir director from chicago so you know we were muslim she was still teach me. spiritual from slavery and she would teach me traditional native songs. that we had to really learn after the freedom of religion act was passed from native americans that was until the seventy's we couldn't practice our culture into the seventy's so you know a lot of the culture that was lost because of indian boarding schools and natives being forced to forget who we were we had to go back and read learn those things so by the time i was born you know my grandmother was just starting to really learn the language because we couldn't even talk about it you could even talk about being indian people thought she was a mexican you know and. you know mexicans are indigenous to that's why you see so many similarities to the southern tribes coming in it's an imaginary border you
know they're indigenous as well and so people didn't know that she was choctaw so later on she went back to learn the traditional ways and she was able to teach that's i mean talk about community muslim community afro american community african-american community and also of course the native american community in addition to all of that you're from not too far away from here baltimore and there's also that community there coming out on twitter for one person here gramma raised personally she has a hometown favorite powerful vocals edgy and good lyrics and message one of my favorite bands not only supports her artistry but contributed to her name that would be the roots from philadelphia the colors of her hair and the sounds were an overall great experience and i would love to see more so a couple of people mentioned your name i know you've been singing professionally since like seventeen but then they move fresh came a little bit later talk to us about that history black but you know my good friend
black are from the roots they were the first group that i like toward internationally with i have my own band. as a first support internationally with and i feel like it's going to really suffer like it just came i playfully on stage where it's like a lot of people have a hard time saying my main you know and my mom. whatever and it just i feel like he just said it one night like introducing these you will do friends you know it was like a joke and then we just kept it kind of kept happening and. i think it was. my web designer who was like why don't we get the euro move fresh because it might be hard for people to spell your name and it just kind of stuck every time i would say it people would remember it and then. i'm at the airport of people who. hear me the first song you're going to perform for us it's called impact tell us what we need to know about that before we hear it everyone acts about this song. so this song is actually in the quarter language the important thing about the lakota they. they
held on so their culture i feel like a lot longer than some of the eastern tribes who were kind of forced to assimilate because. of the in the building the close contact with europeans they were forced to assimilate earlier and lost a lot more of our culture. the look fierce warriors you know and this story and it's talks about the american indian wars and about the women who waved their shells when for the husband the come to come back from war hoping that they were victorious and my mom sing the song to me when i when i was a baby you know and it is a song that has become a lullaby for us not to forget the commitment to our people in the struggle that we fought to still be here the rights of being exists and she's a sing it to me as a baby and. you want to sing it for us now i am. going to perform that song and she gets ready for a valiant way to take a look at this tweet on my laptop this is from all some austin that's his handle
a limb fool with them i am the product of a gypsy in a keep in the somewhere between egypt and things i think i'm going to be a revolutionary since the we thing we're building in the limit of the man who said i was to. mississippi red. states and feel great sadness sweet grass. survive a trail of tears and slavery to see is what you call on. the money believe people had to say hold it read liberation. say learn to sing not in school wouldn't ways you would notice they see singing it wasn't about songs it was about sound illegal to pay and how much my grandmother told me for making bodies of sopping grown men to want to sound a sort of escape the lips and make them whole again we black and. brown blood. is there i'm only the sacrifices nothing you could have it seems. you come back
what spectacular audience think so as well divinity rots among the many people using twitter to share their thoughts on your voice and on your lyrics divinity writes she utilizes her prowess as it in c. in the truest sense of the word to bare her soul and paint a picture of her struggles and triumphs intelligently which is encouraging refreshing and inspiring so that's just one of the many praises people are singing but also a question this person big bro says i love the fact that she tells her story of resilience and i want to know what are her views on the importance of storytelling in the black community that's what you seem to use your lyrics for oh yeah i mean that's always been kind of a staple you know in the black community is as the. that's how we passed down who we are i mean even a lot of the escape songs my grandmother would teach me those are the songs that were the roadmaps to escape from slavery that people thought were just songs but they're not you know they're maps to freedom and they are the things that anchor us
to our community and remind us of how good god is and at some point we're going to get over it connects us in relationship to god and that to me is. why we've been so resilient is because of our relationship with god. you were home schooled which you so much you value. the independent spirit but when you went to school you realized that what you were learning how to live your. songwriting was your escape yeah so what i realize about going to public school is that school wasn't what wasn't about learning was about education it wasn't about. having a discourse that debate coming to a higher sense of understanding it really was about retaining specific information that will be on a test long enough to get a good score and everyone gets funded again we do it again next year i mean i would actually get like sat out a class for asking too many questions and because i was homeschooled i was taught
to be analytical thinkers and not just take information for face value you know what i'm given information that's ok let's cross reference it with these other resources but you know as a fourteen year old no one wants to listen to you say that. and i feel very blessed that my mother educated me in a nontraditional sense like everything was education you know we could do be work and that's like council school credit in her book you know we can cook we can make songs and i wanted to be a thinker more than i wanted to be a singer and at the time i felt like well if i can't be both an i'd rather be a thinker so i left the music for that time and just became a writer and star realized how to combine them you know tony here and twitter says i'm going to use is if it is a naturally talented down to earth positive person with great character and she's not afraid to be honest with her music so it's that last line that tony raves that i want to pivot to not being afraid to be honest you tried out for
a little known show in the u.s. american idol. eventually you were told you're not american enough they said i was too ethnic i was too ethnic and if they have an ethnic idol they'll be sure to give me a call. well to say even. that even me i mean if you were the values. you know. i mean you know. i wasn't even offended so you're right you got it because we don't do this in spite of. the revolution will come to pass. even if it's not of the american you know god bless mean everyone's a part of your journey. god has things happen for specific reasons to push you in different directions so i'm grateful for i listen to your music and i hear the real well to hear america in your lyrics what's happening right now in terms of what's happening right now socially politically what's your next film going to be what is
really i need to write about this right now what is blocking it i can't even say anything is bugging me as much as what is inspiring me and lifted me up is god's love. it really is a connection. and each person could become more and two with their own spear in their own if your mission every day is the elevation of your soul we would have a lot of praise and is this happening each person made their own spirit their business their day to day to do this is the elevation of one so so a lot of the music i'm working on right now is really about using sound as healing tool to uplift the spirit and soul and take us out of. that dark place at the end of iniquity where we feel disconnected from god. because the closer we are in relationship so that the better off we're going to be we have to make different decisions everything about the way we live our lives are going to be different when we're relationship with god. i want to share this with someone watching live on you tube. she teaches with her words like
a lullaby but keeping us whoa instead of putting us to sling it's a little play on words there in the sense of being conscious and socially with it another person here is on twitter and they had so many questions for you i'm going to share one this is a j. man who says they managed to restrict themselves to the questions about this one are there any artists on the african continent you would like to work with in the future and i'll preface that by saying you've already worked with one of our former stream guys. and we recorded a song together we will perform together in the african. you know i love. i enjoy him a lot. one of my late childhood favorites who i would just fall on the floor my mother played her all of my life i would love and. i would just fall out of the work we do. we know how we might hear others a little bit. i want to play this this is
a morning song and it brings you back to your roots and how you learn to sing and i just want to play this for people because you got so many amusing different sounds have a listen to this everybody. the. i don't want to fade that out but i'm going to have so gorgeous i know that if you're next music project you want to get back to more spiritual music and this is spiritual music and it is sort of rural rule sent here for us or i mean i'm so so grateful for my mother i think when i was younger i did not understand or maybe
didn't appreciate it as much. and i looked at it as being separate like my native identity was kind of separate from my african-american identity but now it's is the same is just a part of what i am going to give and that was your mother that singing with you and who else was that. she's a singer from baltimore your actions from cleveland those involved since you have been in this industry for so long and that video of course is proof of that this is we'll hear on twitter who says that she feels the industry has changed its attitude towards women from when she first got involved to now. i think the industry has pressure on its it changes attitude i don't think the culture has changed though i think people are in hiding more now because they are worried about being exposed. i don't feel that the there people truly get why there's an issue with degrading women which is really problematic you know because whenever you cover the symptoms it's going to come back at some point and that's the part that think is.
you know. it's disheartening a little bit but i mean i try to do my best especially in conversation with these conversations happen all in studios and on shows and we talk about these things a lot i really try to help to educate and. for men to understand when you play a part in the reason why it's so detrimental to the next coming generations of young girls and women who who just want to do our craft and who are you know we want to come to work like you come to work. live our purpose out you know without these other hindrances so i mean i think it's good that things are being brought to the forefront because they're lanes that are being open to women that were not open before especially for women with children especially in the music industry there's always been very taboo or very negative connotations of women where children because your bodies belong to the industry it's not your own you know. i'm going to
pause you there because you actually have a song that talks about women and saying their names are going to end the show with a mix of two of my when a song is one called miracle and the other is saying my name it's a song that references the twenty fifteen death of an african-american woman center blam here's a comment from a fan allen on what the song means to her. on the song same move furnish. babies. me away when i first heard the song it specifically highlights the death of sandra bling in the hands of police and then by the justice system. is hearing that. this young woman was being acknowledged in the sense that we haven't heard before you know manning their existence be validating for for in that self is a very emotional empowering as well.
the. heroes eventually shot with the hands in the sky. revolutionists debate in the end never. doubt we watched a one picture complete of the highway all y'all the state with black women to mouth the comebacks such in my time i see people from time to criticize called it the so sad what is thing to blame. i know the struggle could haul it back now nothing is impossible the word loans is out past is the phrase that a. good deal. to believe it doesn't hit everybody but it was.

live ammunition now the president also addressed a nation on the eve of the country's sixty third anniversary independence anniversary and he said he wants to pave the way for negotiations with the people who are protesting. but how to get into we shall enter into a new era where unity is reinforced and harmony is maintained in the whole country all with the aim to face the challenges and threats hovering above our head and here i renew the call to the honorable sudanese people in and outside of sudan to come together and stand united to parade on the good and not the evil we will join hands to denounce violence steer away from wars to engage in dialogue is the only means to resolve differences now for him to negotiate with the people protesting would be very hard that's because the people who are marching are going to streets don't have a certain body that is basically guiding them the opposition has come out and it's supported to those people who are out in the streets because they see that these people have a legitimate reason to demand that president step down but then the thing is it's
very hard for the president to try to negotiate with a body that is not controlled by anyone at the moment and people are saying that they will continue to protest they will continue to demonstrate on the streets they will continue to make their demands heard but the president is saying that his very defiant he's not going to step down he's going to try to introduce economic reforms he's going to try to improve the economy something that the people out in the streets marching said that they have heard over and over again and they're not ready to see after twenty one years of president amanpour israel so at the moment sudan is still at a crossroad protesters demanding that a president step down and president i wish you very defined saying that he will improve the situation but he's not going to step down and it's not clear where the situation would lead to in terms of nineteen. al-jazeera has obtained a video showing saudi agents taking what suspected to be the remains of jamal khashoggi to the house of the saudi consul general in a stamboul the washington post columnist who was killed soon after entering the saudi consulate in the city on october the second his remains have never been found . bangladesh's prime minister shake hands sina has rejected calls for

saying in the new year in australia an estimated one and a half million revelers gathered for the famous fireworks display over the sydney harbor bridge those are the headlines stay with us here on al-jazeera the machine it's coming next. date it drives markets creates profits and generates an endless cycle of production and consumption. we live on credit. homes cars schools and government expenditures are financed by borrowing. data has become the engine of our growth. the lifeblood of our global economy. it's
an economic machine impacting the global economy with more and more date being produced day in and day out. this debt machine has grown to epic proportions and now seems to have spiraled out of control public debt the debt held by governments is soaring. the eurozone is having a much harder time than other economies emerging from the crisis of spiraling debt why and what are the solutions. to debt machine once you're on it very hard to get off let's if i must use them to look good also good news from the public but only to let's start over and create a system of credit which would actually be sustainable which wouldn't destroy the planet as the current machines to a. diminishing

banks love to make loans to sovereigns why because behind the sovereign are millions of taxpayers and they're not like the shoppers or it's not like the consumers in a business because those tax payers never go away there's a new one born every single day and they're going to pay taxes for the next one hundred fifty yes unless the country collapses so why wouldn't you lend to them because you know you're going to get your money back you know there's no bankruptcy law you know that you can always make a profit on its safe lending whereas if i go to a firm that wants to innovate and produce a new asset you know firm that maybe once decided they want to build steam engines and seventeen hundred something i don't have to risk assess the risk well that's too risky why should i invest in that or why don't i lend to the government of spain or to the government of italy or to government of portugal i know there are a german taxpayers there
a french taxpayers there all of whom are effectively backing up this debt so i and fear of taking risks. government days has soared into the trillions of dollars in euro zone countries but those figures don't really mean much if you don't compare them to the wealth of a country its gross domestic product or g.d.p. . the country's debt is measured as a percentage of g.d.p. yet debt represents fifty percent and here one hundred percent of g.d.p. . one thousand nine hundred ninety two maastricht treaty laid down the terms for an integrated europe. in order to keep debt from getting out of control experts agree that a country's debt should not exceed sixty percent of its g.d.p. but that critical threshold has been largely exceeded by most european countries he
