10:01 am
. some people come on. people as you know we that the. people of the pipe dream. mostly and say that's the only thing behind but the team. out of a sudden man just. told me there was a time. i said i will enter it in the if they will not allow and. you know should we. not all along
10:02 am
a million million indeed i'm not i'm not picking on you need to be indicted to tell me to don't panic don't feel that i think i mean you don't look at one time in the economy i used. you know world of big partisan group lot and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to get the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door. and shouting past each other. it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the troops the time is now for watching closely watching the hawks.
10:03 am
church secret indeed priests accused of sexually abusing children can get away with it literally i like to call this the do graphic solution. what the bishop needs to do then he finds out that the priest is is a perpetrator is simply moves him to a different spot where the previous standard is not. highest ranks of the catholic church conceal the accused priests from the police and justice system to that that's not going to. welcome back joining me now to go through some of the week's headlines his book us reform a liberal democrat minister of state at the home office went to resume was home secretary david cameron's coalition government norman bacon norman thanks for
10:04 am
coming back on it was when you were in going to government we had all this ridiculous transparency legislation one outlet for big oligarchs would have been to fund a think tank and then there's no obligations and you can lobby ministers and now i don't know you've chosen this story so i don't know what you think of it that's. on the go the headline for the guardian is think tank faces double investigation after cash for access claims and the point for me here really is that this is a charity the are years of charity under charitable rules that are obliged to be neutral the institute for economic affairs with what appears to be happening here and did to some. footage of it is that they're offering cash taxes to businesses effectively deny that the beard put it in the video speaks for itself as a matter of fact your ias to suggest engaging in any kind of cash crisis system i'll watch the video actually to your viewers because they'll see the facts for themselves but also they also just report on casinos recently and they got eight thousand pounds in the casino industry so they appear to be willing to say almost
10:05 am
what's required of them in order to bring money in casino capitalism they were related to in free market economics it's no coincidence that there was sort of the charity of those who pay the bill get the reports to say what they want to say this is this is a bit spiritus because i think what you should have to have is if people want to argue for a particular case that's great but if they want to have the cloak of neutrality which a charity gives and then to try to maneuver behind the scenes to get to say what it wants to say that's not right and i know my little bit actually might littlewood who's the director here. of the ira used to be very high up in a live devon's he had a strange change of belief when he left the dems and joined other organizations so you must of see the light no doubt other than that the only explanation is he was saying what he was paid to say yeah well obviously read invite him littlewood on maybe that is a deep philosophical differently than he had since perhaps is leaving them let's go to the murdoch son there murdock's on yet diabetes scare diabetics like to reason
10:06 am
may will struggle to get into an event of new deal breaks are just about from peril and from a pharmaceutical conference i was addressing and there are this issue here about access to pharmaceuticals first of all whether or not those which have been approved either by britain for the e.u. or elsewhere in the e.u. will be available in both segments outside the e.u. and in britain secondly whether or not the. forms it was coming forward can be approved properly and quickly and certainly pushes us for to them to stow your canada are months behind even getting approval for some medicines. because the problem but thirty this issue about trade and this is perhaps the the sun concentrating on this you know dover sees seventy percent of our trade comes through that port the estimate is that two minutes actually delay for a lorry which is nothing and there could be three hundred million more costs and checks a year by the way a two minute delay will cause a twenty mile tailback in. minutes just two minutes i mean rick city as well we can
10:07 am
just say that conference was about problems with european union validation of new drugs and access to it when we're out of it we can go to whichever country we want i should say the health sector emad hang dog has work with the industry just stockpile drugs right now where maybe if you were to me that lori problem and the companies they know exist there's significant problems at all are expected in the event of a no deal to raise it may we'll get your meds in to be able to continue. in the summer these pharmaceuticals have got a shelf life and they go off into the required temperature control is no guarantee that that will be maintained that required to that's again what is likely that hancock's that they are looking at but obviously this debate runs it british civic society let's go to far more serious at least at the present time the story u.n. news yes who data one airstrike away for months talkable epidemic says the u.n. humanitarian chief in yemen and britain is selling arms at the moment we don't
10:08 am
being used on yemen yet understand bombing of yemen this week with a couple of things first of all why is it that the world by and large isn't heard of this appalling catastrophe you see news coverage blanket news coverage almost of forest fires in america well i'm very sorry for those being caught up in those fires but actually frankly we're talking about twenty two million people here at risk of death or starvation in yemen compared to a handful frankly in america who may have lost their lives new life is insignificant but in terms of the scale of it yemen is far more significant than what's happening you see the brutal. again and again says when people like jeremy corbin a new leader talk about this issue that we need intelligence gathering with the saudis relationship with them of course saudi arabian bombers are bombing the data this is this is the real importance and when britain takes over the presidency of the un security council presumably this will be the point made by the british government you will point you know the issue is we're supposed to be able to
10:09 am
influence our friends this is a argument for having relations with unsavory regimes and where is your influence britain showing now in society actually what's happening is we are covering our mouths and saying nothing about the appalling activities that saudi regime whatever side you take in yemen what's happening here is uncontrolled bombing of civilians causing multiple deaths and starvation that cannot be allowed to continue and the fact is that whenever there's a problem in saudi arabia we in the west keep quiet about it i don't know why we do that to such an extent but we do it's been the same for thirty forty fifty years well we invite the headmaster of a saudi arabia to london on this program to try and refute a geisha is made but arguably the big story here and in the united states is the fact that donald trump is a russian spy a although your next story seems to suggest there is more to interference in the us elections than most israeli intervention in the us elections vastly overwhelms anything russia has done claimed chomsky up well the difference
10:10 am
is of course that the israeli involvement in the us which he refers to quite correctly is quite open we we saw a netanyahu bypass barack obama very rudely as a matter of fact i'm going to dress both houses of congress to to rubbish the fools coming at that point to run and you clearly is a think tank that a charity that he really lobbying for the difference is that with israel you probably know what's going on which is on safer in my view but with the russians and others and the chinese we don't know what's going on behind the scenes norman bag of thank you. well today marks. day the day when humanity has used more natural resources the planet can renew and in time again this year the day falls earlier than ever signifying when i using one point seven times the earth's resources per year the date was calculated by the environmental think tank global footprint network its president is mathes work in
10:11 am
a goal and he joins me now via skype from oakland in california thanks for having coming on before we get to overshoot day what about these fires that are making headlines right around the world in california yeah to having a heat wave around to worry that's affecting california as well with more forest fires and it seems that the forest fires are extending that seasons as well in california last december we had a big forest fire and normally we don't have forest fires in december so the heat is up well let's get to another overshoot day which is always related environmentalist certainly argue and scientists and maybe not your ahead of environmental protection agency up until recently food water carbon land how do you arrive at the fact that today is the day we use what should be using in a year we are simple pedestrian icon just instead of money the physical resources we add up all the beans to potatoes the origins that be used the
10:12 am
space needed for c o two sequestration everything be used for nature and see how much space is needed to support that and then we can compare that with how much productive space is available on the planet and so we can make the balance and say how quickly are we using our renewable resources compared to what earth can regenerate. and as a humble accountant and his humble account of the do this you identify what you call a giant ponzi scheme. i mean that's what happens if you use more than what you have and say that's normal income that's essentially a ponzi scheme you basically paid the present by depleting the future and that's what we're doing it to logically now it's possible to use more than what you earn financially it's possible to do that ecological a but only for some time because it depletes your assets and that's the trajectory you're on when did we start to overshoot and need in effect. bigger planets or more planets to sustain us.
10:13 am
local overshoot has happened over human history and has depleted areas but the first time we've moved into global overshoot the first time to human demand exceeded what the entire biosphere can redo was indeed early seventy's and by now it has inched up and right now we are at one point seven planets according to the data it varies nationally by quite a lot cuba vietnam doing best count on the united states among those who do the would just so there's a huge disparity in resource allocation as it were using the un data set and we do the accounting around that data and there's a huge this discrepancy between countries all because some countries use far fewer resources than others the point is that if everybody for example live like united states it would take about four or five planet earth if everybody had like me to because i fly around a lot takes about five planets as well even to
10:14 am
a bicycle to work and work or use vegetarian food etc but still it's up. and it's not necessarily correlate to the rich the country has it's presumably the way systems work within those countries you've said that it's it's politics more than individual consumer policies that are required for the change that you think isn't necessary i mean the big question is and that's also at the source of sustainable development goals for example is how can we all live well how can we all thrive but there's given that limited budget of the planet and so the question really is how we can organize ourselves there for big thing that we can do to make things much better for example the way we design our cities it does it if the cities are very compact and can be walkable and bicycle then def far if you use far fewer resources than the sprawl cities also the way we run our energy systems to use solar power or coal makes
10:15 am
a huge difference that way to produce our food and finally the big factor how many people are weak the more we are up to this last planet per person given how this analysis really brings to bear the urgency of it all on one of those four criteria on energy the paris climate deal which trump oversees pulling out of the snow in the air enough to sustain the energy component of overshoot day presumably it has to be much more revolutionary change in the past climate deal i would say actually if he'd lived up to the paris climate deal to the goal of the paris climate deal to limit c o two emissions to two degree celsius we would be much better shape we would actually be back to one planet before twenty fifty if you followed that advice but we're not living up to that paris goal that's true globally. and you talk about smart cities and also food not just being
10:16 am
a vegetarian food in efficiency supply chains and food waste absolutely i mean around i mean on energy day are huge gains that we can make i mean if you compare a kilowatt hour electricity produced by coal compared to solar power they're like factor under two hundred three hundred of difference per kilowatt hour food is not so squeezable because we need the calories but yes we can go lower on the food chain not as many animal products there's quite a bit of food waste typically typical a in the industrialized world about thirty percent of the food gets wasted and also the way be produced food can be more efficient so that a number of ways how we can improve friend and good news also is that the typical made to rate in diet for example the one that is a lot less and on the animal products and more like more and grains and vegetables is healthier and it's very tasty and it's also lower in footprint of course that kind of thing has been said for
10:17 am
a good decade maybe maybe two decades or more today the first of august is the earliest it's ever being under your analysis of the overshooting of the earth's resources that's the question is it a systemic risk or not for example come from switzerland switzerland uses four times more than what its own ecosystems can read you the same is true for the united kingdom uses about four times more than what the u.k. ecosystems can read you into question rate is the question as to the economics and finance ministries is that a risk for the country or not i think it is i think resource security is becoming a driving parameter of economic long term success and be counted switched out from one day to the next because many things that baked into our infrastructure the way we have to build our city our energy system etc the size of the population you cannot switch that fast it's like. driving a supertanker you have to get it on the right track early on and i think that's what's needed and that is why can they thank you and that's it for the show will be back on saturday just speak to the head of the u.k.
10:18 am
funded white helmets about accusations his organization is linked to al qaida but until then you can keep in contact via social media see on saturday ninety four years to the day that mexico became the first country in the americas just uppish diplomatic relations with the new the former u.s.s.r. . i've been saying the numbers mean something they matter the u.s. is over one trillion dollars in debt more than ten white collar crimes happen each day. eighty five percent of the global wealth you longs to be ultra rich eight point six percent market saw thirty percent rise last year some with four hundred to five hundred three per second per second and bitcoin rose to twenty thousand dollars. china is building a two point one billion dollar a i industrial park but don't let the numbers overwhelm. the only numbers you need
10:19 am
to remember is one one does not show you can afford to miss the one and only. on this edition of crossfire we consider one question is donald trump's america first policy in contradiction to the washington consensus idea of american exceptionalism the answer this question will likely define trump's presidency and change the world. metal go up you can. eat. meat.
10:20 am

10:23 am
agency you had protests that took place for a month now the protesters frequently they were outside the building lots of rowdy protests there and then at that point you had members of the ice agency who were saying that they felt threatened by the protesters they were saying the protesters are blocking the entrance to the building that they were menaced by the protesters they called the police pretty frequently so then you had the mayor of portland basically telling the police department not to respond to isis calls i've consistently stated that i do not want the portland police bureau in gauged in securing federal property but the house is a federal agency with its own federal police force eyes has been terrifying more people than they are being terrified of i'm sorry they're taking kids captive this is our duty to see every human being as a human being not in a way and all the words they use is so racist it's so unfair and i'm sorry i have
10:24 am
no sympathy for them they chose this as their job to. ted wheeler is the mayor of portland oregon which is one of the many cities that are being described as what you call sanctuary cities that are not cooperating with federal immigration officials they're basically defying the federal government not cooperating with it now u.s. attorney general just sessions has ordered the sanctuary cities all across the united states to start complying with the federal immigration officials but they're refusing to do so some people are saying that like these immigration policies are dividing the country tearing the country up trump is dividing america what do you say to those people i'm saying trump is to wing what's necessary to make this a country under obama we didn't have a border we had a welcome at. yes yes people protesting do want their opinions heard they do want action taken they do want. the families worse of unseparated to be reunited these illegal and he is country and gets
10:25 am
everything for free oh my tax dollars ok how do you think about that. political blogger on to the brian logan told us refusal to protect ice agents from harassment could be seen as a violation of the u.s. constitution the. every person has their right as a u.s. citizen so they're breaking the law they're breaking the constitution with a case in which they're talking about is is to ice ages while again being harassed by protesters the local police supriya. the protest and where the day in making a federal government come in and put boots on the ground i think that regular police would be a much better alternative than have been a federal police come in and try to protect the streets. this is not anything new to be going on for a little wow ever since chuck got elected and he's people are. driven largely by
10:26 am
the mainstream media as long as the mainstream media is complicit and days you continue to see more things like this unfortunately. paris district. group to end its crucial. volunteers there is so unsafe even minimum security measures are not being met and cruised through working there for almost two years distributing more than two hundred fifty thousand meals and supplies along the way charlotte. in paris is a gritty eighteenth hante small town hundreds of migrants clustered together on the streets they gather here as it's where food is distributed by a local for the interior group but after twenty months of solid data to me call wilson looks set to close its doors saying they just can't take it anymore all sorts of it's become more tense we're serving around seven hundred breakfasts every
10:27 am
day to migrants who live in terrible conditions they have nothing not even tense they sleep on the ground and sometimes woken up by the police in the morning they kick them and use tear gas to move them so when they come to us they're stressed the nervous twice last week we had to stop serving food to let the tension calm down this is something new for us so yes we're stopping migrants have been expelled by police in this area many times philip tells me that despite this they come back and every time they do this situation becomes even more desperate because from the beginning our mission was to serve hot drinks and bread and we've done this for twenty months every day during the last month we started questioning our mission because we don't want to volunteer to be put in danger of. who is to blame for this situation for not giving enough help to the migrants on the streets is this the mayor of paris is this the government of france. is on for us is both the state is responsible for people on the streets for taking in migrants at the same time the
10:28 am
authorities in paris are restricting access to water taps in the summer is irresponsible they also have a responsibility towards the miners and their miners here who sleep on the street and in the comfort drug addicts me this day nor the parents administration is doing its job. with the authorities not providing enough support the volunteers giving up just a stone's throw away from haiti is an area known locally as crack hill that's also made things worse for those working to help the migrants felipe says that some of the drug addicts also coming for food handouts and causing problems. the drug addicts are evacuated recently but nothing was done to help them and they came back to an outcome for a break for this too it creates additional tension very aggressive including towards the volunteers so this is an explosive situation. while recording the into the media think distribution point to take individual approach us move you guys all
10:29 am
about media which serves your reality and i was here i was only. so every city we keep in mind that some of the people on the streets are very uncomfortable with it like filming that we're not filming it he says but they just i'm comfortable with the cameras i believe many people see this it's the. exact. thing. more people are coming nothing's being done about it and there are the drug addicts as you saw it's impossible to film people here it's becoming more difficult than before we think the situation is explosive and a person is in real danger. by shutting up shop so legality may call wilson know that they are cutting off a vital lifeline for phone ripple nicholas but as well as doing it out of concern for their volunteers they hope to move to prompt the authorities to stop ignoring
10:30 am
the plight of migrants and force them to take action. ski r.t. paris. made headlines last month after being arrested in the u.s. for being a russian agent she now faces further allegations such as luring american money to russia to america spoke to a lawyer telling is coming out very soon on r.t. america's you tube channel the full version. well i think if you read the indictment the case is alleged to be an agent over russia who failed to register with the attorney general and so essentially that means is they haven't charged with espionage and if you read the allegations get in on the allegations or parenting spy like about it the sense of the government is conceding that even under their own theory if she had filed a piece of paper with the attorney general's office at the beginning of her trip to america every.
