himself in this vulnerable high stakes in area and letting flat in their putin lead . a man that even president trump now says interfered in u.s. democracy invited to the white house and now the president has apparently doubled down. to washington so let's collude to get. top spy in the united states he doesn't know how it's not possible that the president of the united states is inviting putin for a second summit in a couple months in the fall over at the white house because the president he works for is donald trump despite media frenzy a new poll showed that the majority of americans support the upcoming meeting between trump and putin and about sixty one percent of americans are in favor of improved relations with russia so trump in the american people seem to be on the same page. when you get
a big thing in the future to you and there's a campaign that is getting ready it's a good thing that. now when it comes to u.s. russia relations and not everyone shares the same enthusiasm nikki haley contradicts her own boss on the topic we don't trust russia we don't trust we never well they're never going to be our friend that's just a fact so it appears that nikki haley thinks that human concepts like friendship and trust are necessary to build bilateral ties between two nations states but president putin's take was a little bit different. but regarding who can be trusted or not and if you can trust anyone it's who i'm telling you you can't trust anyone did you get this notion from the president trump trust me and i entirely trust him he defends the
interests of the united states of america and i defend the interests of the russian federation so domestic reaction aside it looks like both sides agree that diplomacy will improve the ties between the two superpowers so we're just going to have to see how this plays out you know lots of reaction to this news as you'd expect the speaker of the us high surf representatives he has commented on trump's invitation paul ryan's leaving like quote we will certainly not be giving putin an invitation to do a joint session not something we reserve for allies. and there has been no let up in the russian meddling allegations the secretary of homeland security kirsten nielsen told reporters that russia was absolutely attempting to interfere in our election systems and the government needs to prepare her for further meddling and ultra followed up with a tweet suggesting moscow might try to help the democrats i'm very
concerned that russia will be fighting very hard to have an impact on the upcoming election based on the new president has been tougher on russia the me he will be pushing very hard for the democrats they definitely don't want trump. all right let's get some thoughts on this from down the aisle make albums executive director at the rome paul institute you're very welcome back to the show as we just heard there donald trump said russia might try to swing the upcoming midterms in favor of the democrats i know i know i'm not asking an easy task to get into the mind of donald trump but do you think he's being entirely serious here. it's hard to tell if he's being ironic if he's being trumped asked dick or bombastic whoever it might be if he is being serious and let's face it he is under an extraordinary amount of pressure from the beltway types what he's saying is illogical he says it's great to get along with trump with russia he say is getting along with russia then he's saying up but i've been the toughest on russia so the russians may want to help the
democrats so he's basically saying accepting the fact that the democrats might want to get along with russia better than he does which doesn't make any sense so maybe it's just one of those times where his fingers got ahead of his brain whatever the outcome of a november midterm elections do you expect to see the losing sight i q's rush of interference well it seems to be the thing to do but you have to remember according to the port you cited in other polls that this is becoming a mantra of the elites the american people are simply not with the mainstream media on this a recent washington post a.b.c. poll showed that sixty six percent of republicans agreed with the way he handled himself in helsinki this is two thirds of his base of his supporters agreeing and saying he did a good job a recent gallup poll showed that less than one percent of americans believe that russia is a serious threat to the u.s. so the people are behind him it's just the elites that have tied their mass to this
absurd notion that russia is somehow hiding under our beds they're the only ones they're incapable of adjusting and they may well pay the price in november of this i suppose there is a bigger plan here to what extent do all of these allegations actually undermine americans own trust in their electoral system. well that's probably a good thing considering how badly they've botched their own electoral system you know this goes back to two thousand and hanging chads we've had plenty of problems with registration we've had problems with electronic voting if we were really worried about having an absolutely clean election we probably would do better to focus ourselves eternally internally and look at how to get a better voting system certainly not nationalizing but having a better and more appropriate voting system and by the way probably a much more appropriate primary season system to look at how they cheated bernie sanders of course the republicans junior ron paul and twenty twelve so we've got
our own problems to face here in the u.s. when it comes to our local says the president has faced a barrage think it's safe to say over inviting vladimir putin for a second summit this year why your figures do you think in washington so against this happening is talking not better than not talking because the elites have pinned everything on the idea on this absolute fantasy which is undermined increasingly every day we saw it with the with the quarter page plays application this whole allegation this whole thing is built is a house built on sand but they can't let go because washington has to have an enemy mentality has to have an enemy to focus on because that's how tries to extort half of our wages from us every year to build the biggest military budget in the world i'm not sure how a failure with another story we're covering but let's just try to get your thoughts on it the white house is threatening to revoke the security clearances of i think
six yet former top intelligence officials all of whom have openly criticized the president do you think that could backfire on donald trump. it's the usual suspects that are furious about it but this is a courtesy of allowing them to retain their security clearances is a courtesy afforded to top intelligence officials in the us if they abuse that privilege which is pretty clear that many of them have a senator rand paul said here's john brennan the former cia director who is monetizing his security clearance he's using an parlay going to make millions of dollars from the mainstream media if they are abusing this if they are abusing the kindness of the president who has altered control as executive over the clearance process in the u.s. if they are abusing it then he's absolutely within his rights to say ok we're going to pull these security clearances from you and he should do so immediately daniel thanks as always for taking the time to speak to us this hour executive director at the rum paul institute's done in macau tim's.
facebook has shocked the art world by banging on for ties ing featuring the works of the flemish artist peter paul rubens and society delves into the controversy. full centuries these were considered priceless treasure as an masterpieces and now that contentious well according to facebook it appears the platforms take box approach to ads means that console the difference between art and pornography annoying art galleries and museums all of about open up from visits one does to mark zuckerberg about ruben's breasts we have noticed that facebook consistently rejects works of art by paul reubens even though we secretly have to laugh about it your cultural censorship is make your life for all the difficult flaws in the append that to add to the facebook see they've even also a big to discuss the matter. so what is the seventeenth century artist
well his baroque style paintings of famously known to feature nudes and cherubs sometimes delicately draped with cloth but this autistic taste is a big no no with the media john strict advertising rules they call the flemish tourist company thinking if he's not appropriate for facebook he's not appropriate for you and if you have a social media account we have to take you away from the nudity thing to protect your kids nudity even if autistic in nature this includes paintings individual bodies such as not to speak cleavage story but it's just that we put your head in front of this painting we are searching for. you for. facebook has said it's open to discussion but there is no doubt this is great pay off spin by museum curators as it is in fact possible to post artistic needs on facebook if it's part of an ad that fools in the stricter guidelines and could be
rejected but facebook might be playing it safe for different reasons back in two thousand and seventeen facebook came into fire for failing to may have sexual images of children and also failing to stop leaks revenge porn photos all this spot concerns in the face. moderation system facebook's very bought expenses post but it appears it makes it hard to distinguish between pornography and artistic nudity but when it comes to exploitation though you can be sure as a facebook user you'll be protected from art. a british conservative politician has admitted that the military is directly involved in so the earth strikes on yemen don't you hawkins brings us the details the source come from tory m.p. alice the book he's the minister of state for the middle east that before and commonwealth office specifically with regards to the role of u.k. personnel in saudi military control rooms there had of course been speculation for
quite some time about the exact scale and depth of the u.k.'s involvement in the conflict with the british government everything in the past that it does have a train advise and assist mission alongside the saudi military which indeed the country's foreign minister had also confirmed in the past. we have british officials american officials and officials from other countries now commanding control center we pick the targets they don't i don't know technically exactly what part of the process they're involved in by do you know they're aware of the target list now the size of the u.k.'s arms sales to a country that has been accused of human rights abuses and even walk reimers in the yemen conflict by various organizations and charities from human rights watch and amnesty to the campaign against arms trade has long been a salient issue some british politicians have also expressed their discomfort with the u.k.'s link to this very bloody conflict germany has suspended arms sales to
saudi arabia but british arms sales of sharply increased and british military advisors are directing the war it cannot be right that her government this is cannot be right that her government is colluding in one of the united nations is evidence of war crimes but the u.k. government has been adamant all along that its involvement in the yemeni conflict alongside saudi arabia is both proportionate necessary and legal in order to protect saudi civilians from ballistic missile attacks by the who thiis the self-defense law and of course also taken by the saudi arabian government britain supports saudi arabia its right to defend its security against missile attacks from yemen many of which have targeted the kingdom cities including riyadh. any solution to the conflict must ensure that saudi arabia no longer faces this cross border security threat now or after the first direct admission it may see more of u.k.
military personnel being present in those saudi military control rooms questions will remain one what exactly the role has been both in the past will be in the future and the deed why the british government has been so hesitant all along to reveal these details to the public or journalist mike brown he believes the u.k. has no justification for getting involved in the yemen conflict your training and assisting you would not necessarily be in the command room the british government and the u.s. government sells billions of pounds of billions of dollars worth of weapons to saudi arabia it makes sense that the british military. want to see how that's being used and if they wanted to they could they could hurt order him to stop a strike on a wedding party they could stop a strike on a hospital unless the birds said there's only a few military u.k. military personnel but other reports i've read side the figure of over seven
thousand u.k. military personnel in this mission which is effectively directing the war. doubleton is considering revoking the security clearance of several former intelligence chiefs the white house press secretary said they had politicized and in some cases monetize their access to sensitive information and made baseless claims about the president. doesn't like it he wants to punish them for no i think you are creating your own story there is the president doing exactly what you just said the president doesn't want all these people doing a little size in matters of national security but after his political enemies people are politicizing agencies and departments that are specifically meant to not be political and not meant to be monetized off of security plans. six people were named including former heads of the cia f.b.i. and n.s.a.
all of them have been critical of the trumpet ministrations policies all served on president obama to them no longer clearance but those being targeted say they're not told much anyway the security clearance has nothing to do with how i or any of us feel about the president i don't get briefings i don't have access to any classified information it's more of a courtesy i don't go back for classified briefings won't have any effect on what i say all right kill him up and looks at whether the move is a necessity or trump simply seeking to clamp down on powerful figures and the former heads of u.s. intelligence agencies are now dabbling in politics the fired f.b.i. director james.
