another country. you're suggesting it's appropriate. for a terrorist mastermind. welcome to the program. in the united states. is one of. us marine is now with the. media speculation our correspondent picks up the story. haven't they god as get rather used to hearing about russian spies getting caught in america we have the hybrid
warfare that you're seeing with russia which is very much forefront inspired master this is the one saying this is a hard and fast rule of trading when you when you go into espionage. particularly coming out of the soviet union or russia they will accuse of being a russian spy has pleaded guilty in a us federal court this time the case is the exact opposite paul whelan an american national and former u.s. marine was arrested in moscow in perhaps the fanciest hotel in the capital but who would have known when the news broke that as many as four countries would end up saying he's our guy about mr we won the embassy violent in moscow has requested consular access to an irish citizen currently detained in russia we are extremely worried about pool whelan we have offered to consular assistance consular officials are aware that a canadian citizen has been arrested in russia ambassador huntsman expressed his support for mr whelan and offered the embassy assistance however when it comes to
the canadian passport the suspects brother couldn't even say whether he still has it or not i don't know i know that he was once a canadian citizen so he may still be and i know that he is an american citizen right now strange but that's how it is paul whelan is in detention in moscow having been charged with espionage although his family is sure the reason he went to russia was just a wedding party the american ambassador had been given permission to see the spy suspect and so he did mr whelan's lawyer is seeking bail for his client but don't forget several countries have wind up to help him out so while u.k. officials are waiting for the green light to get access to the alleged spy their top diplomat has spoken out opposition is very very clear individuals should not be . used as pawns of diplomatic leverage we need to see what those challenges are against him to understand whether there is a case or not we're not ruling out any theories tool at this stage as to why this
might have happened there are very few details on the case that we know off for now there hasn't been much reaction from senior officials either but journalists around the world are all over this story and speculation is rife he faces up to twenty years in a russian jail deal of cash plenty of time to be swapped with. what's most likely as we'll as a pawn in russia's play to get back one of its spies after maria patino here in the united states. do you believe the arrest of your brother was retaliation was revenge in some way by the russians as you've just heard many are linking this case with the case of maria bhutto she was arrested in america in july and eventually pleaded guilty to conspiring against the u.s. with the russian government official and at least one other person without notifying the attorney general however the fact is the charges brought against
maria buthe and paul whelan are completely different earlier this week the washington post published an article about mr whelan's to attention and it former cia official. says dollops about whelan being a spy saying quote we don't send in random americans without diplomatic immunity to collect the low level stuff every last legal and media analyst lionel for his reaction. he says that we only use according to this people with diplomatic immunity when you look at this as far as the illegality of it what is the role of the diplomatic community how does that work are does that in any way interfere with spying and vice versa you're not going to see a lot of people address this and you have to see a lot of people in american media in the american media speak to this particular point we must assure that all individuals in all countries are accorded the rights
that are that are available to them what's fascinating is that you will see american mainstream media in particular that does not have necessarily some of the best newsrooms some of the best let's say experts available who will have to feed that twenty four seven media monster you have to feed it you have to give it something you're going to talk to anybody who's ever remotely work with the cia was in the cia drove by the cia knew somebody who was in the cia so a lot of times you're not going to see some of the best vetting of the experts. another round of budget talks between congressional democrats on the white house seems to have led nowhere with a u.s. government shutdown entering its third week the sticking point is funding for donald trump's border wall with democrats also reviving talk peach mint the u.s.
president is now threatening to take radical action. have you considered using your emergency powers to grant yourself authorities to build this wall would have and i can do it if i want so you don't need congressional approval to build know we can use i'm absolutely we can call a national emergency because of the security of our country i absolutely know we can do it i haven't done it i may do it i may do it now trump did indicate after the meeting when he spoke that he would actually consider calling a national emergency in order to construct his wall so that he could do so without the approval of congress trump also summarized the meeting he felt the meeting was productive but the representative seemed to have the other idea we had a very very productive meeting lengthy and sometimes contentious it's very hard to see how progress will be made unless they open up the government we recognize on the democratic side that we really cannot resolve this until we open up government
he said he'd keep the government closed for a very long period of time months or even years trump also said that in the meeting nancy pelosi the speaker of the house of representatives that she told donald trump that she had no interest in impeachment they were not looking for impeachment that's the quote there has been a call to get the ball rolling and kind of jump start impeachment proceedings against trump from some democrats one democrat in the house of representatives actually use some rather colorful language to make this call police don't want and maybe don't because we're going to go in there we're going to be some of them. while trump said that he was told by nancy pelosi that quote we're not looking for impeachment in the meeting that just happened nancy pelosi has elsewhere said that she would be open to the impeachment of us president trump we shouldn't be impeached for a political reason and we should avoid punishment for political reasons we've reached this point where if you have control of congress or congress and.
you do prison. it is from the other party you attack the president body refusing to provide the votes to pass the president's agenda he'd run into problems right away because there is no national emergency is causing this this impasse over something that most americans don't really want or care about i think that the upper hand goes to the democrats and they're just going to wait him out until his own party tells me he has to fund the government because it's costing the nearer supporters too much and it's costing the country too much to hold a quarter of the government unfunded a lengthy period of time is going to cause so much pain that he's going to have to keep. we all know a line or two from our favorite t.v. program all movie which may want to be careful when saying them in public i take the iconic ninety sit on seinfeld which
a new generation of us is now being offensive over jokes like this makes us soup in the city jerry the best what they call a soup nazi. i'm not let you cut in line when you because if he catches us will never be able to get super again that was an advantage i thought so apparently of course the fans and other joke included a reference to native americans using the term indians and want to go to flag of puerto rico were set on fire by a character and stomped on also a stereotypical portrayal of a gay couple certainly riled but opinions are divided now as to what's comedy and what's not. i wondered how long it would take for the perpetually offended p.c. police to come off to one of my favorite shows it's still the best thing on television . saying it's comedy genius comedy that's the whole point of comedy when you laugh with each other surprise some people still low there in the
world. who was the freaking crybaby that wrote this trash seinfeld was funny when it is it's funny now and it will always be funny if these jokes from seinfeld are now offensive we better take saturday night live off the air to you can't. the most iconic ninety's said call friends as also failed to pass the sensitivity test of younger generations last year online streaming service netflix uploaded the series but the sitcom strokes fell flat with some viewers branding the storylines sexist and homophobic we spoke to comedian ron pleco and me i don't know where the selective virtue signalling originates from i don't know how a bunch of people woke up number like hey we're outraged about seinfeld today hasn't that been off the air for about twenty years yes but we're mad about this today and here's what we're mad about like there's more important things going on
in the world i hope that they you know maybe take up a cause or something like that as you know we have some real reasons to be outraged in society right now and one of them is certainly not t.v. shows that have been off the air for twenty years. north korea has told the united states to stop meddling in its relations with the self claims that washington does not want to see an improvement in into korean ties it comes off the came juglans new year's address in which she expressed readiness for dialogue but also warned of the dangers of failed to plough missing. not operable and didn't go that i am ready to meet with u.s. president again and to anytime on the new threat to bring about outcome there will be welcomed by the international community however the united states continues to break its promises and misjudges our patience by unilaterally demanding certain thinks she had with sanctions and pressure against our own public and we may have to seek another way to protect our country sovereignty interests and to establish
peace and stability on the korean peninsula so it was a rather thorny year for north korea and the united states with grave warnings and personal insults being fired from both sides certainly can bring some fears of war but kim jong un and donald trump eventually reconciled and the entire world sighed with relief it's easier to back it up rather explosive twenty eighteen. at the beginning of twenty scene the state of relations between the united states and north korea could be summed up with the contest. time itself the measuring contest in relations seemed unthinkable yet that was exactly what twenty teams brought in some of the best cases of classical literature it all began with a woman. this is still north korea's leader could easily make a run at the gold medal if political freestyle was a millon for this a plea a human face to the leadership of the reclusive state almost all the support of the
games itself the teams of north and south korea under one flag in fact even plump and at least in the way reconciled in pyong trying to please them the form. of. the double fuel. from. fast forward a couple of months and history's made the leaders of north and south shaking hands smiling laughing walking up to shoulder in the no man's land between their states. from apply status perspective the whole affair looked almost like
a competition incivility with pyongyang peeing to gain the upper hand another all of branch of the world korea obliteration of what they said was the nuclear test site which i got to witness. and now everything is being turned into a massive cloud. in fact odyssey got to see many things but outside a high school hello we're inside the residence of to north korean leader kim jong il and i'm absolutely shocked. this is how suddenly you get treated to cranberry juice at kim jong un's residence the whole faja and fury thing seem to go out of fashion fust so don't trump decided to put aside the summit will happen and personally i think it's going to be a success predictability though he's not one of the praise from has known for he
kept the world confused regarding his intentions to meet kim jong until the very last moment is a very substantial chance that it will work as i always say who knows who knows what's going to happen who will either have a very good meeting or we want to have a good meeting and maybe we won't even have a meeting at all it will see how it all works maybe maybe it won't everything's going to be scuttled but eventually the two met and they felt and how shame about their feelings toward each other.
like you spent i was really being tough and so we're seeing a lot back and forth and then we fell in love ok one thing that twenty three didn't seem to be in the north korean saga is that donald trump and predictability still don't go together as his emissaries were scolding came from tools living alan sort of a long distance relate. sure but passing on proof of his infatuation through the south korean leader but it could be out of five into korean plummeted in the past eighteen years three took place last year a sign that perhaps the two koreas don't really need anyone but each other to finally reconcile. thank you most all the come here on yourself that i program on dogs here including britain spending a hefty sum protecting the welfare of a highly controversial hate preacher some taxpayers a feeling cheated about this to that story in full and just.
leave. the country has gone into a nihilistic fever that's why i think i got to hit the road and get out to traveling across america to find what makes america take the charlatans the genius of this place especially american hero this is it we've come a point around which ultimate is going to something we always are on the margins to
what this whole culture is really important. we're starting last with is going to headed east into the swamp we're going into the belly of the beast i think i want to leave now doesn't get any more gonzo in the minute we may be completely different but the end of this journey. twenty four hours here in moscow britain has spent almost two hundred thousand pounds protecting the welfare of hate preacher qatada after he was deported to his native jordan to face terror charges the summerfield by the times newspaper has sparked anger among m.p.'s and the public these payments are ridiculous the money we have spent is an insult to the british taxpayer. one point seven million pounds in legal fees for
a hate preacher abu qatada total cost for deportation including welfare payments so far one point nine million pounds christ sakes two hundred thousand pounds spent on protecting hate preachers human rights you couldn't make it up. no wonder people want to come here they get twenty thousand even if they leave. the u.k. granted asylum and nine hundred ninety four is he claimed to have been tortured in jordan and the u.k. then arrested him after nine eleven on terror related charges and qatar was then sent back to jordan twelve years later he was assured that he would not be tortured there however after his deportation overseen by then home secretary theresa may well it certainly cost the u.k. a pretty penny at least one point nine million pounds were spent on his deportation including payments for legal fees and legal aid and then the two hundred ground was spent after his deportation for monitoring his condition and ensuring that he
wasn't actually being tortured the government committed to monitoring up to three years the last payment was made in twenty sixteen so i guess the debate the issues raised by the migrant deportations and in particular this case with abu qatada. and the first place. should never have been granted asylum here by can one thousand four hundred when you think about it all the money all the wealth payments he and those around him are parasite did off the u.k. a taxpayer until such times as he was deported your recipe is one for and the key you say should never have claimed asylum in all reality we are at the haughty to the convention like most civilized countries which means that if somebody claims asylum and they can show a genuine fear of persecution we are obliged to grant them asylum for you to suggest that i am claiming i'm my recipe is a suggestion for an icky what you're suggesting is
a much greater suggestion for an icky because you're suggesting it's appropriate that the you care taxpayer should pick up the bill for a terrorist mastermind who was going against the rule of any of the u.k. i'm certainly going to know i don't know which is different because let me finish now and i on a second i gotta finish you're suggesting that the you care taxpayer should take to pick up the bill for a terrorist mastermind to come to the u.k. live off benefits and then when he does get deported back to jordan we further pick up an extra two hundred thousand now if that's not well nihilistic perhaps is a better word than anarchistic but either way it's pretty imbecilic the fundamental fact is that this guy was by any definition an al-qaeda terrorist mastermind i'm glad that he was deported i mean i am disappointed that we've had to spend two hundred thousand pardons to look after his well for in jordan when that money could have been spent much better for example keith here in the u.k.
looking after british victims of al-qaeda violence wouldn't you agree with me with me on that point where would you like to see the want to spend on another universe or is victims who chose i'm only slightly disturbed david that. it seems to be that your opinion as to whether somebody is wrapped up in criminality or not is sufficient to convict them i actually like living by the really intelligent so if you rave if you were to accuse me i'm sure you are a criminal offense to serve i'd like to let me finish please if you were to accuse me of a criminal offense i would like to think that it wouldn't be you who decides on that it would be a jury and the fact is that jordan already having him in his absence then had to acquit him when he was retried for exactly the same thing because it was discovered that the evidence was tainted now it's not you are missing with. the matters as to whether you think he's a terrorist or not it's the rule of law where look can be proved or not that's what
matters keith people keith with grip with great respect kate you seem to be ignoring the fact that it's not my opinion that he was a terrorist mastermind it's a matter of numerous reports by various heads of intelligence services if an intelligence service alleges somebody is a well known terrorist or something like that but if those countries cannot provide the evidence to support those contentions then i'm afraid inge and i'm not prepared to listen with deep credence to any intelligence service is that alleges something against somebody simply because it suits them politically to do so in essence what keith saying must be must be music from heaven to the years of any prospective terrorist wanting to get into the u.k. this guy was a he was a really bad rogue with the u.k. is far better off without them and yes initial point we should toughen up our laws
much much more robust from to make sure that such wicked terrorists do not enter this country they can go to jordan or forever else they want but not in the united kingdom. so being busted for. drug dealing could spell the end of your career prospects unless spelling is something you happen to be rather good at at least that was the case for true u.k. student.
