in g. you said england and belgium speaking of that i think is absolutely true. and poland . well i went for some goal because i like african countries so i would really like an african country to go to war three through which i i was thinking between nigeria and senegal one to do it i don't think majeed is going to do with let's see some the girl they have some some good players they have players in good league so awfully they can. hopefully they can do it finally say you being with us what five times it is your last day today just tell us what has been you your impressions of moscow and also the world cup now the. atmosphere in the city amazing and you know where we are just in the most iconic place in the city where of everybody is coming i can imagine so to two nationalities probably even more on the streets that must be is fantastic the city is beautiful the weather is
lolo's. continues on all fronts is he remaking the western world or merely isolating the us also is north korea coming out of the cold much much more on this edition of crossed. i've been saying the numbers mean something they matter to us is over one trillion dollars in debt more than ten thousand dollars fine tempi each day. eighty five
percent of global wealth you want to be rich six percent market so thirty percent is one of your somewhat one hundred to five hundred three per second per second and one rose to twenty thousand dollars. china's building two point one billion dollars a i industrials. but don't let the numbers over. the only numbers you need remember is one one you know for him it was one and only. i. bet that's bring you up to speed on the well the headlines now donald trump has called on stuff with the call to stop at the washington post to go on strike against the newspaper's billionaire owner american reports from the u.s.
capitol well this is yet another dispute between the washington post and its employees but to remind the viewers the washington post is owned by jeff bezos the founder of amazon and the richest man alive according to forbes he purchased the paperback in twenty thirteen for two hundred fifty million dollars and the story tromso for into sort of what the washington post a union publicly calling on bezos to provide better working conditions and better pay for their workers i'm fighting for a decent raise because i believe i want to put contributed to the post success deserves a share that i'm fighting for a better retirement benefits i'm fighting to retain some amount of job security but the. this is the first time bezos has been publicly called out for not providing suitable working conditions when he visited germany back in april to actually receive an award for business innovation and social responsibility ironically he was met with protests by local amazon employees and bases responded to the protest saying quote i am very proud of our working conditions and i'm very proud of the
wages that we pay claiming that his companies pay much higher wages compared to others but this petition signed by four hundred washington post employees was indorsed by the president of the united states by a twitter of course now he tweeted a washington post employees want to go on strike because basis isn't paying them enough i think a really long strike would be a great idea employers would get more money and we'd get rid of fake news for an extended period of time but for some quick background trump has publicly feuded with the washington post who he calls fake news for writing negative stories about him but the washington post union didn't appreciate trump's support saying that it wasn't helpful for their cause given that the president's support is really just an attempt to attack the paper and its mission but the washington post union at the even though they're raising concerns about workplace issues it doesn't undermine their support for bases and fellow journalists in their fight to bring truth to light so considering that they turn down such a significant endorsement from the president the united states it remains to be
seen whether or not the world's richest man will acquiesce to their demands. they need to control this he has raised many questions for example how lonely you can stare at a coworker before being accused of sexual harassment online t.v. show or provide a netflix apparently has the answer and this is to check and explains. oh sorry i didn't mean to sexually harass you netflix have reportedly introduced a policy advise in their employees not to stare at each other for longer than five seconds this has neither been confirmed nor denied by the company but the general idea is allegedly inspired by the me too movement to avoid sexual harassment in the workplace according to netflix employees quoted by the press this five second staring back as part of a package of no lingering hugs no asking for phone numbers and no flirting we're
proud of the end to your usman training we offer to our productions we want every netflix production to be a safe respectful working environment but do you think about when you think about the five second rule i have no idea what the five second rule if you were to guess what you think it would be about i can eat something after i fall after after i drop it on the floor but only before it's placed there for five seconds so we have a three second rule in norway so we have what you have to have three seconds between your car and the next car at the time oh really you guys were talking today urging people about netflix you know like yes ok so they have reportedly introduced this new policy where they're after people who work with them to not stare at each other for longer than five seconds. told one sexual harassment really ridiculous company by the. nonsense that you want to try to sound like small amount of time but it's actually really good it.
seems ok let's start each other let's do that. like the next smiling we could do whatever he thinks. seems somewhat counterproductive in every single way seems a bit stupid really. just looking at people isn't sexual harassment if you and i work together we can look. at each other for longer than five seconds because then it creates like an uncomfortable environment apparently why are you uncomfortable looking at me i'm all right now i don't find uncomfortable response i think that sounds a little bit on that you can't have corporation with anybody and then be afraid of sexual harassment i mean that would just be weird i think he's stupid how can people work together. look at a child. and
just to give you an update on the game between england and to new zealand now the second half is underway with the much delicately poised it was harry kane open to scoring in the eleven minutes referee pointed to the penalty spot in the thirty fifth from an airsoft i cal a cell five from file rule to me as he is for johnny southeast kept up to level the school has all of the game with the latest. england dominating the proceedings they took the lead to hurricane in a round eleven minutes but they could have by that point being two or three up
stirling being in forward missing essentially what was an open goal but after england took the lead they took their foot off the accelerator the two museums of back in it in back old square off the well a penalty decision that we're probably going to see quite a lot more of it looked like the slimmest of contacts between england defend and the two new zealand forward that is your full went down in the books and saucy stepped up. to sloss home and make it one one this should have been out of the park for england that should have been a home run already but they have a very difficult game on their hands and they being put to task by a team is in sight to any type of pushovers belgium of course already won three nil against panama in their first game their top of the group and england really need something from this if they want to consider the fact that consider finishing top in group g. and continue our predictions for marty's special co-host terry they may know for the upcoming games of the group stage next up his thoughts on tuesday's clash
between table talking russia and egypt who lost their first game. bush and egypt i think that's the match that's the message that is going to the sides qualifies for the. for the next. normally they both get three points against saudi she sees them match because you know what i think is a different level of experience than the. mental revenue for the for these level of competition so this is a big match russia has to stop selling because all it makes that makes the difference and has to impose you physicality as one of the most important points for the much. stay with us next hour for special coverage and over the highlights from the world
these people the survivors of a world disappearing. before their eyes. i remember thinking when i was younger that if anything ever happened to the coal mines here that it would become a ghost town but i never thought in a million years i would see that and it's happened it's happened. i played for many clubs over the years so i know the game inside god's. football isn't only about what happens on the pitch put a funnel school it's about the passion from the fans it's the age of the super money just kill you narrowness and spending to get to the twenty million one player . it's an experience like nothing else on to because i want to share what i think what i know about the beautiful guy a great so will more chance for. a nice minute.
blowing welcome to cross talk for all things considered i'm peter lavelle the trumpet juggernaut continues on all fronts is he remaking the western world or merely isolating the u.s. also is north korea coming out of the cold and much much more on this edition of crosstalk. talking unstable world i'm joined by my guest mark sloboda he's an international affairs and security analyst we also have dmitri bob h. he's a political analyst with sputnik international and in plymouth we cross to patrick henningsen he is a journalist writer and founder of the news website twenty first century wired dot com all right gentlemen rules in effect that means you can jump in anytime you want i always appreciate patrick let me go to you first in plymouth so much to chew on here reflect upon my introduction i'm. trying to recast the western world or maybe the whole world and its entirety or is this really just isolating the united states
or a combination of all by what i've just said go ahead patrick in plymouth. you know this is this is the big challenge to determine firstly what is us foreign policy you know i think there's there's been a tendency there's a tendency by academics and by some commentators to try to look for breaking trends to try to generalize everything into sort of larger themes like is this a realist a revival of a realist foreign policy or is this a continuation or a different version of a liberal globalization based foreign policy i think it's really difficult because if you look at history the only consistency with a lot of u.s. foreign policy is its inconsistency so you look at you see the hypocrisy at every turn no matter how many administrations you go back to but one thing that is consistent is a kind of post world war two grand strategy and sort of the united states as it's coming out of the cold war period then entered a kind of period where full spectrum dominance was its main priority and i think to
some degree that is still where a lot of washington's thinking is directed pentagon led full spectrum dominance as thomas barnett sort of you know laid out during the bush administration but in terms of donald trump i think the united states is at a very interesting crossroads because the first time where it's not expanding in one hundred twenty years internationally it's actually having to reconsolidate its positions not just at home but abroad as well and i think dollar trump is the ideal chapter eleven practitioner maybe for this point you know u.s. history chapter eleven that's really great to have mark here i mean also when you everybody is looking for these kind of short phrases to describe i came across one no friends no enemies that would least work in the case of dealing with the i guess we can use it correct them disastrous g. seven meeting in canada and no enemies dealing with north korea at least at the
time for the time being as some kind of partner illegitimate partner no friends no enemies yeah. i don't think there is a coherent trump foreign policy and i don't think that surprises us because it's quite clear that doesn't have complete control of the u.s. foreign policy congress has a multiple times attempted to usurp that right pushing him passing legislation forcing him to put new sanctions on russia now they're putting forward a bill trying to for bid the president the commander in chief from withdrawing troops from south korea without receiving the approval of the secretary of defense that that's fine also we also have a members of congress petitioning other pentagon not to so jet fighters the. thirty five's to turkey turkey. and they're also threatening against india but the one thing that congress doesn't seem to want to reclaim is their actual constitution
given power they're very they're did it really clear they're very choosey they really cherry pick. well i agree with peter the big question is are we seeing the continuation of the same so-called liberal or would truly be a real world order being built obviously seen something that was well i think that trump is actually less dangerous than their you know the people who were building their so-called world order during the last twenty five years because if you compare the war to an apartment block you know what these people want is to demolish it completely build a new one russia and china as the biggest tenants right now voice in their objections their dolls the usual response is just don't worry you will be better off we'll give you new apartments right and wrong place just very you know open the crush and the walls around himself and you know you will see a realistic absolutely this is not i think the idea not to go with the original but
when he is just simply you know expanding. and i mean what patrick let me go back to you and climate at length because i think what's really interesting here is that the united states still wants to lead ok it still wants to be dominant but it's not doing it with its allies because it sees the its allies is being a dead weight ok i mean they don't pay their own way they get preferential trade deals so the this is what makes trump a bit different he still wants to be win and be number one he decides it really care he doesn't want to carry the load for the entire western world anymore because he doesn't see it as being cost effective again he's a real estate agent patrick and climate sure that this is the transactional nature of this ministration that you see this reflected through to the white house you see it was especially through nikki haley although she's taking her wrecking ball towards multilateral institutions like the united nations and other sort of
international institutions and don't trump is sort of taking the wrecking ball maybe towards nato you could say and in some ways the european union but i think you've got two different sides of foreign oil so you're need to separate you're up and what's going in that hemisphere and all the legacy post were to look see there with asia and don't trump is much more comfortable in asia and he's doing exactly the opposite of what the previous administration did which was lead from behind this is a president now that doesn't want to be upstaged by his secretary of state he's actually taking the lead he's interfacing directly with some of the most powerful leaders in that region and i think he's more comfortable in that environment that's where the money is this is where the future is asia is forward looking and certainly on the cost of the global economic surge in that part of the world so this is definitely much more of a comfort zone for this president but in europe it's much more how the amount of patrick little issue that you get me know i mentioned the g. seven i mean and this is somewhat kind of my mantra my hobby horse here is that
trump is is not in tune with the postmodernist order of things that postmodern. mine think ok what mindset and that's that's the g seven ok particularly europe he doesn't see eye to eye with mccrone with trudeau with people like that because it he just has a very different understanding of everyday politics he's not a theoretician ok he doesn't have a theory he's a he's a practitioner let me go to mark here on this yeah he's not a liberal i mean not a liberal that there's some but up and patrick thank you my brain is now imprinted with an image of nikki haley is miley cyrus driving a wrecking ball into the united nations and this is so here's the problem even though it's it's a divide between not only the u.s. deep state and the trumpet ministration but between trump and people within his own your ministration like mad dog madison and so on they still want to pursue american hegemony and there's no way america has given up on the pursuit of global military
financial and other means of germany around the world trump does see that as wasteful i've seen a characterization that he loathes the liberal international order that has been created since the establishment of bretton woods through the uni polar moment and so on because he does see it as not as damaging the us as transferring wealth and the us overplaying the role of defense when it doesn't need to around the world he sees a stance of all u.s. allies like the e.u. as rivals as economic rivals because he's a businessman and that's the way that he views the world on business terms and he sees the ins and outs at an imbalance particularly with europe and he faults europe as having worse trade policies for the u.s. than china jeffrey goldberg in the atlantic this week did it in article he's famous
for giving this softball interview he said i. apologise where obama told him that his four. policy was simply don't do stupid stuff stuff yes you can say it. well jeffrey goldberg got three different characterizations supposedly from three different anonymous officials within the trumpet ministration of how to define the trump foreign policy the first one was this no friends no enemies which is a very realistic interpretation. unfortunately trump if he wanted to pursue that i don't think he's had the ability to pursue that as much as he would like what one of the second ones i think will feed a lot of conspiracy theories that may not be conspiracy theories anymore that permanent destabilisation creates american advantage while that that sums up american foreign policy and military policy and what they've done in the middle east the support of. terrorists you know in libya and syria and so on and the last
one sums it up as far as the liberals are concerned we're america i think of breaking bad everybody i think you know i mean you know. also you could say in a kind of is a extra layer of from what we've heard from patrick and from mark is that trump is determined to undo everything barack obama did ok everything well you know a strange way yes and interestingly not on the standing actually at all the terrible things barak obama did suddenly summed it up wonderful you know recently he said that the bamma the crania became russian he obviously meant that obama was we will solve no he looked at me on the wire around us both of the coup in ukraine without which would never never have gone back to russia people would never be
pushed to vote for that referendum for going back to russia so just you know unintentionally. trump told the truth and if we compare trump and the so-called liberals in the us administration trump is more peaceful let me give you a. little to be careful get me wrong i'm right here you've got twenty seconds to explain that coincidence just. headline from the nation the media response to the meeting. betrays a cynical lead to the south korea's security basically the media response was drawn from major concessions he gave up on the exercises he's betrayed the night that's all i would say then his defenders if i were it to defend him that's part of our to the deal gentlemen 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 some real news stay with r.t. .
i can imagine. i don't know i wasn't there but i can imagine a russia defending its national interests in a way that doesn't help the hawks in the united states but couldn't has this image of such a hard guy. and i would only blame him for not caring about american public opinion even more because it seems like no matter what he does there's an unfair response number less what i'm saying is it's gotten very personal. yet from you know. when was the last time that you went on that you know you're
not used to these village is it safe. are you sure there is no excuse of hers. that all good maybe should be the baby does a glass of his that is the. question we're going on we thought is that as part of the photos it could be. a. bit more work i was. previously yaz they are being false form in the word muslim member of the society. let's go there was no. one else chose seemed wrong all right old quotes just don't call. me
old yet to say proud disdain comes to educate and in detroit equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. with lawmakers manufactured consensus instinctive public wealth. when the ruling classes to protect themselves. when the final merry go round lifts only the one percent. nor middle of the room signal. the real news is brutal.
