russian and chinese influence on the continent the new plan will also limit u.s. aid to countries that u.s. national security advisor john bolton who unveiled the strategy said that billions had been spent ineffectively. delve deeper into the story. this regarding that it reads more like a declaration of war than a strategy and this plan is for the good of africa promises john bolton this coming from a guy whose boss trump infamously referred to several african nations as something that i can't mention on there the predatory practices pursued by china and russia stunt economic growth in africa threaten the financial independence of african nations and pose a significant threat to u.s.

his tenure tromp one sent his wife but what the united states might lack in tact it more than makes up with guns american troops are stationed in fifty out of fifty four african nations it has thirty four military sites thousands and thousands of soldiers across the entire continent and a long history of military interventions china has. one base in djibouti russia has not american troops are there for africans own good washington would say speaking of which remember the whole chinese and russian money that american money good thing well it turns out not so much our new foreign assistance strategy will ensure that all us foreign aid in every corner of the globe advances u.s. interest countries that repeatedly vote against the united states in international
1:05 am
forums or take actions counter to u.s. interest should not receive generous american foreign aid john bolton they does and gentleman man who unveiled america's new africa plan so much for financial independence africans good luck jumping ministration does not actually desire to help africa if they see africa as a poor one and a geo political just like and therefore they want to use africa against russia and against china and china and russia policy with china with the new silk road is not particular china is actually filling massive infrastructure projects across the continent with the new silk road built of lower initiatives transforming the continent so the real policy would be for the united states joint which china instead was following a very cynical and jugular strategy which has nothing to do with africa and
1:06 am
everything to do with the united states trying to meet in europe and against russia and china the only thing will do is push people in africa closer to working with other people. russian national maria booth has acknowledged she failed to register as a foreign agent off the spending months in a u.s. prison but as aussies caleb maupin now reports there's some worry that she's being used as a political pawn and moreover that she's not alone in this respect when maria boot no was arrested the media went wild cue the james bond music and get out your decoder rings it turned out we have a real james bond seductress in real life and they had sexy photos with firearms a web of sex and lies and illegal kremlin agent she offered sex for access to an unnamed political group was likely in contact with russia's f.s.b. and something right out of a spy novel they scraped the barrel for everything even her phone cover which
1:07 am
reportedly had putin's face on it received its fair share of air time and now after six months she's been in federal custody much of which in solitary confinement she has come forward and pled guilty to failing to register as a lobbyist for a foreign government yeah no spy stuff no sexual seduction not much at all they've got her for supposedly talking to some politically influential people this is what russia has been saying all along for those little when i heard about what's happening around me i also told the chief of our intended to be shooting the movie in the disco only in the federal counts of the julio the first posted because she was working with someone just now prior to today's hearing the russian foreign ministry said that they would support her no matter what decision she made it seems like the buttin a saga is now drawing to a close she might be deported back to russia she might go to prison the next hearing is on february twelfth they're not just begun politically motivated this is
1:08 am
an utter and total miscarriage of justice i work on chase street in washington d.c. the street is the center of lobbying for the washington area half of the street is in registers half of k. street is working for foreign countries without registering with the justice. so why would you not because she's russian and they might be able to get some little leverage over the only reason this is not about justice not at all but another high profile case is now starting to unravel the chief financial officer of wow a technologies the world's leading telecommunications manufacturer has been grabbed in canada over charges related to sanctions against iran trump openly admits that u.s. interests and negotiations are a factor if we think it's good for what will be certainly the largest trade deal of a maid i would certainly intervene if i thought it was necessary it is going to be dangerous to see is whether we have a federal investigatory body and
1:09 am
a justice department that is launching investigations or asking things under the guise of being it yes where the government of the united states without the approval or support of the president or other members of congress. in order to achieve political purposes or do achieve other purposes so that's something we need to be careful of what we cannot do is to let people who act outside u.s. laws or or subvert those in the name of protecting policies to run those we need to hold them accountable and fortunately we do have a system in the united states where people can be held accountable if the right voices speak up you can bet that those who follow world events and geopolitics are rapidly rereading trumps of magnum opus the art of the deal they are scanning pages to see if they can find the part where it says when all else fails grab a prominent woman caleb oppen archie new york. so it's ten past the hour here in moscow hardline jewish protesters in the west bank of clashed with police during
1:10 am
a protest demanding the closure of a major motorway to palestinian traffic comes off the killing of two i.d.f. soldiers in a nearby settlement. was was the israeli military has launched a manhunt in the west bank for the killer of two i.d.f. soldiers thought to be a palestinian gunman checkpoints and roadblocks have been set up throughout the area of ramallah based reporter. reports according to reports initial reports was that palestinians opened fire on israeli soldiers on a flying checkpoint near odum a lot to be to assume is that happen all roads were closed the israeli army has entered the launch is the defacto capital of the palestinian authority and there are currently confrontations happening between palestinian youth and israeli forces
1:11 am
the model has been completely closed off by the israeli army and there are also problems on the main roads between palestinians and israeli settlers settlers have been throwing rocks at palestinian cars so the israeli army has been home alone for the past four nights conducting raids searching houses searching stores even taking camera footage from cameras throughout the area israel has put the blame on the palestinian authority and at the same time the palestinian authority is putting the blame on the israeli government my colleague and i dare to discuss the recent escalation with the head of the euro asian jewish congress our. starting with the situation in palestine area want israel do further avoid escalation of violence in ramallah israel tries to do its best to avoid this kind of escalation but israel's duty is first of all to protect our citizens it is totally unacceptable that
1:12 am
israeli civilian woman pregnant woman can be attacked at the bus station do you think however you describe a terrible situation but do you think surrounding ramallah was a reasonable action on the part of the israeli forces considering the palestinians day of rage was planned for friday arab terrorists which is pointed towards israel didn't start three days ago or three years ago it was started one hundred forty years ago and unfortunately the main motives the main reason for this kind of hatred that we suffer from is a unwillingness of the arab population to accept a jewish state in any borders so we first of all should try to learn to live together and then we should accept each other ariel there are different perspectives to this obviously there's the israeli side and the palestinian side
1:13 am
and i ask you again this action. the israelis would have known that it would cause an escalation and my first question was what can israel do to avoid escalation israel first world supplies all the humanitarian needs of the palestinian population and of fortunately we suffer from terror so that only reply of israeli population to terror to stalk in the perpetrator who wants to kill civilians in this kind of reply of. of some region unfortunately terrorists are hiding in its force proper reply and. east to provide proper protection for israeli and arab cvo population. new polls on migration conducted in twenty seven states has found that people on largely opposed to allowing newcomers into their countries almost
1:14 am
a half of those interviewed want fewer migrants among the countries showing strong and the migrant sentiments are for european ones including greece and germany countries in latin america africa and asia are also so sore similar views with for example sixty percent of washingtonians wanting to see fewer newcomers so we got reaction on the streets of berlin. i guess and it's awful and probably started with all. who was in charge of here because the. beginning was going it's almost just german people seeing things like this i mean. i can tell you without there is a white prejudice. when speaking of immigration and when speaking of the other to be honest i think that everybody accepts everyone here like i am
1:15 am
myself i'm from ukraine and i'm being so well accepted here. i think it's just the alpha element and all first i guess we have to establish who's in charge and i think it's human nature but you need to be ethical you know i think because they don't know where they came from their cause they brought so they are. if they don't really know other culture or something then they are afraid i understand them but i think we should be more open to new things new cultures new people people are afraid that other culture can you know we affect their own or maybe some people are probably less educated so they don't want to give them a chance so that's a prejudice or they say yes. it's a global thing if you are here in the western part. or overseas if you already know america or south america i think there is the same
1:16 am
perception unfortunately. president has announced plans to deploy troops to northern syria to fight what he calls terrorist groups. we will start an operation to free the east of the euphrates from the separatist terrorist organization in the coming days the target is north american soldiers get to rob the members of the terrorist organization active in this region rancorous plans do not sit well with nato ally the u.s. the pentagon issued a statement of warning about unilateral military action in the area is of grave concern if i did the u.s. personnel may be present in the region and any such military action would be unacceptable a politician says and korea wants to see u.s. forces leave syria. we interpret this as a last call of to the united states to seize it support for north.
1:17 am
port for armed groups in the north east of syria and to retreat its troops which are internationally. illegally present in syria as the first. to finish all kind of terrorist activities on syrian soil. and. the government's power on all over syria i think that step by step the u.s. will acknowledge. defeat of its plan for the middle east for cd especially and start. retreating as they already retreated partly from their plan to topple down the president of syria mr mishra. still to come here on the program and all of a sudden very late amendment to a bill on. is designed to thwart efforts to end u.s. support for the saudi military. will lift the lid on that in just
1:18 am
a moment. most people think to stand out in this business you need to be the first one on top of the story or the person with the loudest voice of the biggest raid in truth to stand out on the lose business you just need to ask the right questions and demand
1:19 am
the right answer. question. glad you can join us today the u.s. senate has unanimously approved a resolution blaming the saudi crown prince for the murder of journalist jamal. two months ago the senate also passed a separate motion demanding a halt to u.s. military support for the saudi in yemen that declaration was approved by fifty six votes to forty one both motions represent a challenge to donald trump's policies on saudi arabia and his refusal to scale
1:20 am
back military ties with that country. a us resident who wrote for the washington post disappeared on the second of october after entering the saudi consulate in istanbul so we discussed the senate's move with joe lombardo an antiwar campaigner . saudi arabia is looked at with a lot of disfavor in the united states right now because of the killing and brutal murder that they did because of the human rights violations at least popular opposition to u.s. policy. right now in that region so saudi arabia doesn't look. like a very good country to the eyes of the american people and it is very difficult for the legislators to vote in support of saudi arabia at this time and while the senate votes to pull out of yemen's war another vote in the house of representatives has all of us sudden created an obstacle for this goal on wednesday
1:21 am
congress passed the work culture improvement act with a sudden last minute amendment blocking any vote on limiting american involvement in the yemeni conflict in till next year there sparked a backlash against house speaker paul ryan who advocated for the amendment. this is why people hate congress speaker ryan is not allowing a vote on my resolution to stop the war in yemen because many republicans will vote with us and he will lose the vote he is disgracing article one of the constitution and as a result more yemeni children will die some democrats found themselves in hot water as well as supporting the amendment to the cultural improvement act among them call them peterson who was grilled by a washington post reporter over the vote. can you explain your wart on the yemen or
1:22 am
solution yeah it didn't belong in there why not couldn't you just have come back and done another vote no we worked for two years on this farm bill and i'll be damned if i let anybody screw it up do you have any thoughts about the war in yemen i don't know a damn thing about it and it should be in there and it it didn't do anything anyway what do you mean by that. all it did was say they couldn't have a vote or something didn't authorize anything it didn't you know our party gets off on tangents it's ridiculous and he walked up and i joe lombardo again says amendments like this also known as riders frequently resorted to in politics to force through unpopular measures this is not uncommon in u.s. politics when they want to pass something that is not going to be palatable to the people of the united states they put it as
1:23 am
a rider in another bill which some people would support and then the people that voted for it said well i'm really against that rider but i really had to vote for it because it was for the main bill and that's what they were hoping to do right now and one of the democrats that did vote for this one of the five democrats was actually the sponsor of the farm bill so this is a way in which they can kind of fool the people of the united states and support. actions that are not very popular and give an excuse for it. italy has sent a revised the budget proposals of the european commission in an effort to avoid e.u. sanctions the move is being seen as a major u.-turn for rome which previously about to stick to its high spending plans which were of course rejected by europe the decision was announced when italy's prime minister met the european commission president in brussels. told reporters
1:24 am
his change of tack was not a betrayal of italian voters who said the decision was actually in the interests of europe but italy has proposed cutting its budget deficit to two percent of g.d.p. however has not specified how that reduction would be achieved the government is promising to maintain spending on pensions and welfare the e.u. rejected italy's initial draft this draft budget that was back in october and during that time won its. came up with a rather unusual way of expressing his. respect
1:25 am
to journalists gov jones who says the pressure on the financial markets is behind the italian governments and. i think the government was quite by. his that was. the icing on the wall they were consistently high i'm not. increasing the chinese all the costs and that was putting pressure on the banks and. creating. businesses and that sort of takes the impulse and. then they leak it which is small businesses in the north which is one of the eventual. i think that was the main reason financial markets at their shop. so with christmas nearly upon us the festive spirit is in full swing but in sweden one department stores hold that
