and since november of twenty sixteen around four hundred fifty of them have had their firearms licenses taken off them by the state but he was right citizens and dangerous reich citizen is a catch all term for a loosely affiliated bunch who claim that the federal republic of germany is illegitimate and say that the pre-war constitution remains in effect that's the same system that allowed out hitler to take power well today's reich citizen groups come in several shapes and sizes but almost all of them have some link to why the neo nazi groups of far right ideology. the historical revisionism forms an ideological link that connects various right wing extremist currents and right wing extremists among right citizens use those connections to cause confusion to provoke authorities and to create a social platform for right wing ideology it's estimated that there's around eighteen thousand of these right citizens in germany and some are allegedly
preparing for a day when they'll rise up and take their country back but these aren't just hollow empty threats eighteen months ago a policeman in bavaria was killed during a shootout between officers and a member of one of the sorites citizens' groups a number of significantly significantly increased violence. has increased in number if the numbers go on to increase if these fever really use in prepare themselves for a toasting in resisting public reduced then indeed it is a challenge for the state opposition politicians have accused the government of trying to sweep the extent of germany's problem with far right violence under the rug first the federal government explains the right wing terrorist groups can form spontaneous. sleek and have
a strong digital network but then many of their actions are not counted as right wing terra fences the impression is that the federal government consciously accepts blind spots in the recent past berlin hasn't pulled away you from publishing intelligence findings that showed as many as seven hundred radical islamists could be in the country and a capable of preparing a terrorist attack but it does seem that they're less forthcoming we're not threat potentially posed from elsewhere we now are facing the end of being intellectually dominant culture into legally gemini and under this umbrella of growth right. of course right in the radical right to an extremist. protected the german state district do they have all the power and strength. germany has very strict gun control laws thankfully gun deaths are rare occurrence here but perhaps one way to keep it that way would be to not allow people who the government
considers a threat to the public to have access to firearms peter all over all. yeah although the threat poised by right wing extremists in germany is reportedly increasing the government's say the overall threat level from the group remains relatively low. america's ambassador to israel has come under fire after he was seen posing with a rather controversial gift david friedman was presented with a photograph of one of the most sacred places in jerusalem but all known to the ambassador the image had been altered the region is still reeling from deadly protests against the relocation of the american embassy to jerusalem or to paul asli reports now on the controversy. american ambassador to israel david friedman was given this photograph of the temple mount from an aerial shot but there is one thing that was altered on the photograph and that is that the golden dome of the
rock mosque had been replaced with a picture of the food temple which is a jewish sanctuary that's prophesies to be constructed on the spot where jews believe the first to biblical step temples once stood now as you can well imagine the photograph immediately sparked fierce criticism from the muslim world sabah erica who is the secretary general of the palestine liberation organization the p.l.o. says it friedman expressed to quote rude and hypocritical behavior you then have a tb who is an arab israeli law maker and comes from the israeli arab dominated political alliance called the joint let's and he has responded to the photographs by saying that this man this madman wants to bring peace a good thing you didn't put the embassy there at the same time we're hearing that the american ambassador has apologized freidman was not the word of the image thrust in front of him when the photo was taken he was deeply disappointed that anyone would take advantage of his visit to cruise control the u.s. pulled. clear we support the status quo on the her arm. temple
mount now here which is the organization from which the man who gave the president came from has expressed its own concerns about the incident it says that the man who presented the picture actually acted on his own behalf but the problem is that the american ambassador already has a record of controversy even before this event he is a supporter of israeli settlements in palestinian territory and in the past he's also called on the u.s. state department to stop calling the west bank israeli occupied territory the temple mount is a very holy site in jerusalem it's venerated by three religions judaism christianity and islam it's the most holy site in two days in the third most holy site in islam and this in. then comes at a very unfortunate time it follows the inauguration of the new u.s. embassy in jerusalem from its original base in tel aviv and as you well know that spock took the raj off both the international and regional criticism. now at the

most of. those. dollars. peter enjoy his time in the baltic sea not much or f.b.i. informants actually paid that's one of the topics looked at next in the latest watching the hawks episode. when lawmakers manufacture consent instinctive public wealth. when the ruling classes project themselves. with the final
clearing go round the sun be the one percent told. it's time to ignore middle of the room sick. tomorrow relieves. the world. in some american cities the police have built themselves cling to refutation of people who walk on the streets of the united states who are at risk from the very people who are supposed to protect. people and no more afraid of the police than of the terminals. you can see something happening and this is like i don't want to call the cops let that happen rather than call the cops in those young black men lose their lives chasing the unal with their fingers on the trigger you never know better safe than sorry i don't know that. someone else is going to pull
a gun so. unfortunately around and around here we end up blowing our guns along the dense to leave from such preclusion the risk to. have it out is out that our law here that. much as a. little. is illegal. hi. babe it doesn't. suggest that you're outside of town like on the and. by then got a session on the nod there in. by then is a shift the long. haul a stop in atlanta to an audience at a loss is going on want. some certainly not so it. can be a most of it was revealed to the pope multiple injuries among current enough to
soak the capsule feet most of the work but shows real your mars on the phone to the book on the if you can book a political symbol so this is a yes but i don't know it's a book in a moral sense for a month. on a bit of nothing but i came upon an awful lot me. somethin that will save you up. on long enough something not set in. the market as a little huddles look ma let's see what i can and maybe i made the comment for the . greeting. and salutations you know i have to admit hawk watchers that there there
is definitely a certain appeal to watching the two great political parties of the united states along with their deep state handlers eat each other and their own over donald trump and russia gate and this bloody feast was on full display in all its ravenous glory over the recent exposing of seventy three year old oxford university professor one stuff and help or as the f.b.i. is super duper secret inside spy on the trump campaign during the two thousand and sixteen presidential election it was mueller favorites carter page and george papadopoulos were apparently the main targets of helpers' information gathering efforts page first contacted by halperin july had a conference in cambridge and later papadopoulos that september in london according to the daily caller page told the news organization that he had stayed in contact with alpert for the next fourteen months including virginia farm visits until
september twenty seventh team around the time the surveillance warrant that had been taken out against paige was set to expire but but this isn't the first celeb first election spying go around for our good buddy helper no no no no no no no no for those not familiar how has been the deep state intelligence community operative for decades most notably as glenn greenwald observes for a long forgotten spying scandal involving the nineteen eighty election in which the regular campaign using cia officials managed by a helper got caught running a spying operation from inside the carter administration. and that our buddy helper wasn't wearing another deep state home team jerseys in steps the pentagon and the office of medicine which according to federal records has paid help or more than one million dollars for research since two thousand and twelve. which which begs the question is there anyone in the u.s. government or the intelligence community who doesn't have their fingerprints all
over mr halper let's find out as we start watching the hawks. it looks like. it's at the bottom if you. like you know that i got. this. week. well the what's in the box i am told that her and to help us sort out these non fiction from the fiction surrounding this bizarre strange case of step one help or tinker tailor informant spy is conservative commentator steve malzberg. so steve to see you my friend great to see you as always i want to ask steve how how dangerous of
a precedent does this kind of informant based spying set for future u.s. presidential or even congressional campaigns. i think it's very very dangerous if this actually happened and i love don't you love the terminology in the argument the media reports with a straight face he wasn't a spy he was an informant ok. you know maybe the dictionary does have a difference but to me when it when it's put out in this manner what the election is you're talking about and someone infiltrating it doesn't matter what you call them i mean if this actually happened this isn't just bigger than watergate i mean this is this cuts to the very heart of our democracy if obama and his administration and the people in charge under obama played a role in planting someone in the trunk campaign the opposition presidential candidate if you will the opposition party i mean why how and people should go to
jail if that actually happened and they're investing i mean you know trump called over the weekend for investigations and all this and what's interesting about this kind of use of informants is that since nine eleven there's been many accusations made against the f.b.i. for using informants to entrap or entice a person into committing a crime they otherwise would not have the means ability motivation to commit now many republicans and a lot of law and order democrats have defended that practice you know we're going to use it to catch terrorists with these new revelations will we see support for the f.b.i. is rather interesting use of informants finally come into question being that that's you know could be what's up play here. to me it's apples and oranges to me you know if you want to infiltrate groups that you believe might be preaching terror or a terrorist might be in that group and you want to make sure in an effort to keep us safe i don't have a problem with that even a religious institution if someone wants to come to my place of worship if the
f.b.i. suspects there's something nefarious going on and want to sit next to me and watch i don't care because i have nothing to hide and if there is somebody in there i hope they find them but this. i mean this is a presidential election you can't have the current administration the administration in power you know trying to sabotage an illegitimate presidential election my goodness i mean that that would be unprecedented notwithstanding the the what you alluded to earlier with the apparently the same. informer who worked against carter from within the administration for the reagan campaign but this would be this would be huge and it should be and remember you know all of this goes back to this you know wild crazy dossier that we find out was you know paid for by political opposition and like all of that so i mean really you kind of create this echo chamber of everyone using the same chain of evidence but but you know it being used by all these different groups so it's really just comes on the one thing you
know what i found fascinating was watching the media the f.b.i. and many mainstream news outlets have been adamant that helper was not spying on the campaign that he was not a spy but they've called him and informant or my favorite that he was just monitoring the trump campaign for the f.b.i. which is a new one like high school monitoring i don't. know why why the dance of linguistics what why the why is there controversy over what term is used for what he did because trump said spy trump said spied way in the beginning if you remember memory said there were reports that obama spied on me during the campaign spied on the trump tower so the media and certainly the f.b.i. can't have that it sounds better with informant but there's a report out there and i mean this is pretty well established i think that this this i'll call them a spy that he called up a co-chair of the trump campaign and said hey i would like to be your foreign policy adviser for the campaign now he was trying then to not only inform
by getting in touch with papadopoulos and saying hey you know about those russian hacked e-mails right. he said why not only by getting in touch with paige not only flying papadopoulos to. london where every flew and all expense paid but he wanted to get in and become a part of the truck campaign to increase his exposure and be able to yes spy from the real inside of the campaign so he's not an informant he was a spy in my view who was looking to get even further in bed to do more spock it was incredible no no there was a very big push to keep you know how from being exposed as the f.b.i. informant i mean we don't know for sure yet if he was we're pretty much all signs point to that he was the guy in fact democratic senator mark warner the top democrat on the senate intelligence committee exclaimed on twitter that attempting to unmask a confidential source was irresponsible and potentially illegal now given how
present known history and involvement with the cia the f.b.i. has decades long career in the government it's not really a secret that the guy was in the house you know i mean it's not a that's not a secret how does that threaten national security right it doesn't take a spy to figure that out no it does it here's the thing he also said that it puts his life in danger and human and human resources in danger and that is so untrue every time the republicans on one of the committees wanted to get ahold of documents the f.b.i. the justice department and the democrats on that committee say oh no you'll be able reveal the techniques and you'll put a lot of lives in danger spies lives in danger you can't do that and then when it was subsequently released and we saw what it was had nothing to do with that they're hiding that's the excuse they use when they want to hide an opposite gate and just don't let the american people know what's out there they claim whole
security system will blow up if we if we see that document or find out that fact and you know and that's part of that is that excuse has been you. so much you know in the last twenty thirty years if not more of you know it puts the nation at risk we can't release this we can't lose and of course there are certain things that you don't want to release to the public troop movements things like that things that actually put people's lives in danger but what i fear is over using that excuse over and over again it's kind of like telling the night that dulls the impact of it to a certain point it's like well what doesn't put somebody who's life in danger really of it is just covering up you know the thing that i want to really ask you is where do you see all this going i mean it's bizarre already it's taken the twists and turns i mean i think giuliani was saying that potentially or something the might wrap up the mueller investigation could wrap up by september something where does all this go next in your assessment well yeah giuliani a that said muller offered a deal of september first if he testifies of trump testifies i hope he does not
meet with muller where are we going with this well first of all trump wanted investigation into the spy allegations but all he got was another inspector general investigation he can't subpoena people it put them under oath it's way it's a waste i think you got snookered with that i think you should demand that sixteen congressman did today a special counsel a special prosecutor to investigate this firing allegations the vice awards everything that the attorney general is doing but do it with real subpoena power i think you're going to get from moller a report to congress there's no russian collusion in it but there he's going to make a case for obstruction of justice trump at a rally said come on russia show us the e-mails trump fired the f.b.i. director trump said this they're going to make a case and if the democrats win the house they'll impeach him but there's no russian collusion and you might those see some of the family members like donald jr and others they may get into legal hot water for what they did even though i don't
think they did anything wrong you don't almost no experience it almost makes me wonder. if you put that magnify. like the mueller investigation on any number of individuals in washington republican or democrat i'm sure that i mean i'm sure you're going to see all of the things that eventually will probably be levied at donald trump and his crew. right i mean when you give us an attorney or a prosecutor unfettered access to go after anybody for anything you're going to find stuff on lots of people and that's that's the shame of it all that really is you know lots of people who did absolutely nothing and already accuse of doing anything had to go higher very expensive lawyers to accompany them to testify either before the dollar or before the senate or house committees and it ruins lives financially speaking if not reputations as well you're right you're right you could probably find you can indict a ham sandwich is the expression and i believe that's true most definitely and like
i kind of at the beginning is that what really concerns me is that if we allow this kind of behavior to take place where we allow the intelligence communities to kind of spy on the candidates the whether you like them or not or agree with them or not there has to be more than opposition opposition research to instigate that spying there's got to be more i mean i don't i mean look if someone is legitimately a threat to the country in the running for office yes you should take a look and say ok is this person dangerous but at the end of the day it's got to be more than just apo research because everybody does that and really how bad it scares me and how would you like to be under investigation by the f.b.i. when the f.b.i. agents are texting to each other this guy's in eighty eight we have to have an insurance policy against him winning and i mean come on great that's a great point steve malzberg always a pleasure to have you on and talk with you and. soon my pleasure thank you as we go to break lock watchers don't forget to let us know what you.
