no signs of winding down. this is day to day. and for. whom. the british prime minister suffers another humiliation and parliament ahead of tuesday's crucial vote on her divorce plan. top stories of the week the main headlines of today welcome to the weekly the sunday program we're not. seeing a ninth success if we kind of yellow vest protests with demonstrators certainly keeping up the pressure on the government correspondent shot to do the remains in the midst of the action.
oh. the. tensions are rising here the up to three all three in paris one of the protests in the city one of many protests taking place across france officials think is saying thirty two thousand people taking part in those figures that some lower than the fifty thousand that took paula to fish in the last weekend but the yellow vests movements have often just speeches those official figures saying that they only show a small proportion of the people who are out on the streets we have had violence here in new york to creoles. her outlook for. the.
good. there's water cannons now in full force trying to push protesters away. that water cannon and tear gas plumes coming up from the ground we've seen the protesters throwing a projectiles at the police we've seen the police responding. to gas that's just being dispersed there's flash pulls and those cast ballots as well as what looked like to be sun can aides and a mobile police force now you can see running in the hole dressed in black you could just see behind me that is that. move five has just appeared been coming along people reveling around that as that our gas comes in the air the tear gas
is just moving we can hear it now people are moving to want to weigh when they have to move as that is tear gas of being out pushed out there are five thousand offices taking part in the security all of paris eighty thousand across from people i've spoken to the chelation own say yes this is after nine this is the ninth consecutive weekends but this is not going to stop and this is going to continue it was not only the french capital that experienced protests on saturday in normed thousands took to the streets with police to point to cast on the crowds and in lille hundreds marched to pay tribute to the victims of the protests at the end they released yellow balloons in the air and laid flowers to one of them. the u.s. government shutdown moved into its twenty second day becoming the longest in the
history of the country and this week has seen accusations flying back and forth between democrat leaders and donald trump. democrats in congress have refused to acknowledge the crisis president trump mustapha holding nathen people hostage might stop manufacturing a crisis stoke fear and divert attention from the turmoil in his administration and must reopen the government the federal government remains shut down for one reason and one reason only because democrats will not fund border security no president should pound the table and demand he gets his way or else the government shuts down senator chuck schumer has repeatedly supported a physical barrier in the past along with many other democrats they change their mind only after i was elected president. on wednesday at the u.s. president still not of his talks with his democratic counterpart spreading them
a total waste of time he tweeted that when house speaker nancy pelosi refused to approve funding for his border wall he simply told a bye bye well former florida state democratic party chairman mitch caesar and american political commentator steve. well they have pretty different views on the board it will shut down debate. he hit on every note and you know what's holding all this up you know it's just keeping the government shutdown and holding all this up is the fact that nancy pelosi says no wall not one penny that's not negotiating this was a purely political attempt to help you saying poll numbers where sixty three percent of the people in america now say they don't want the war and they want to turn back on his statements about mexico is still going to pay for the wall because of tariffs that's nonsense we're lowering the tariffs to be less money coming in it's exactly the opposite almost every democrat including schumer voted for
a fence a few years ago with obama and love the fence and make speeches about how they need a wall obama made speeches about it now it's immoral because it's trump who wants it so please trump will declare a national emergency reopen the government take the funding from the military and guess what the democrats won't like that either so nothing donald trump could do they won't negotiate with them and it will be makes it good to criticize so you know it is what it is that's the political reality today when i think backs of times of presidents democrat or republican who asked for national time like candy during the cuban missile crisis or obama when we killed osama bin ladin or bush with nine eleven those were real national situations the problem is is that when we have a real national crisis two thirds of this country will not believe president trump based on all his past behavior to make the case for the border wall trouble to the mexican border and the u.s.
i took the oath along i swore to protect our country and that is where i will always get my of these strange history to come with a good field proposed to secure the border and staff will get drugs and human trafficking. and while the standoff over the border wall continues the media is not standing aside with some channels going further than others in fanning the flames a correspondent reports. take a look at what this local fox affiliate did with donald trump speech to the nation earlier this week now the footage appears to be doctored showing donald trump sticking out his tongue between sentences which he didn't do in the original video now the news director of q thirteen admitted this was problematic this does not meet our editorial standards and lou grant if it is seen as portraying the
president in the negative light even before the speech we heard a number of voices calling for it not to be aired like they have done with other presidents and other times the networks should refuse to turn over the airwaves to donald trump tonight for what they know objective play to be a steady stream of lies first of all just because john wants to address the nation doesn't mean networks should air otherwise they're just passing on his lies unfiltered and some of the fact checking also got interesting for example downtimes claim that ninety percent of the heroin in the united states comes from over the border was widely criticized because most of that comes through legal ports of entry and a wall wouldn't really do much to change that however one claim that donald trump made about two thirds of women who were smuggled across the border being raped in the process turned out to be true so conveniently c.b.s. then removed it from their fact check and us mainstream media continues to show
this reel of footage of u.s. border patrol agents dumping out and kicking over water that was left for migrants in the hot desert areas there is video of border patrol agents dumping water on the ground water that was meant to be left for migrants this is from the two thousand based aid group now the video is supposed to be an example of cruelty and heartlessness by immigration and forces and it certainly is however the video first surfaced in two thousand and thirteen and it was filmed back in two thousand and eleven these were obama's guys they have nothing to do with trump's border patrol and it's worth noting that obama actually deported more immigrants than any. the president in us history washington d.c. is in a state of paralysis the government is shut down donald trump is demanding funding for his border wall and the democrats are adamant that they will not give it to us it seems like the partisanship in division that is so widespread in washington d.c. has now found its way onto americans airwaves. r.t.
new york. with just days to go before a crucial breakfasted vote in parliament on tuesday to reason may have a busy week trying to push through her divorce plan but instead of the backing she was hoping for the british prime minister was faced with a barrel of criticism once again. as his dad is the dentist. i believe it is possible to have that future relationship which is deep in place with the european union that gives us the freedom to do what we want to do. prime minister has been wrecked to see wasting time holding the country to ransom with the threat of no deal when will the prime minister of peace the facts there is little support for a deal or no deal in this. matter why on earth would we walk away from this to be frank i have lost trust in the prime minister's ability to negotiate a good do. if this deal is rejected is that we have the risk
of. making derogatory comments about that stick on the subject of bricks it happens to be. affixed to or in the windscreen of my wife's car yes i'm sure all the owner who gentleman would suggest for one. who has a wife is somehow the property or shaft so. for now it seems to reason they could be forced to draft a new deal as the current one is not expected to pass on tuesday and with a growing number of m.p.'s expressing their opposition to the prime minister's plan another option is that the u.k. leaves the e.u. . without any deal in place amid the uncertainty there have also been calls for an
extension of article fifty which would give the u.k. more time to negotiate a series of may has ruled out calling a second referendum but that too could still be yet another possibility. meet on a subaru she's a conservative politician and a vocal opponent of bragg's it but this week some of her opponents came to westminster and got more vocal than her. right political or you know if you were offended by wireless i just think this is astonishing this is this is what has happened to our country something has happened the debate over how britain's departure from the e.u. should look or whether it should take place until now has turned rather ugly this is the palace of westminster it's where british politicians work and the area around it is a public street as you can see anybody can walk down here there can be demonstrators
as well and it's not unusual on any given day to see a politician maybe a member of parliament or even a senior minister simply walk out of here and towards abingdon green here where they might be taking part in a t.v. debate or an interview but that practice is increasingly under threat as the atmosphere here turns increasing in times over the impending gregg's that day and the fact that there is no agreed common action in place this was an a subaru trying to leave after the interview. that you don't want to lose you when it comes to the politicians aren't the only ones getting abuse from agitated members of the public sky news anchor kay burley was heckled by pro brags that protestors while live on air. love her world the world oh brotherhood and owen jones a left wing journalist and author was taunted by
a group of right wing protesters i believe everything you go with there was a right surely this situation outside parliament has now become an issue for parliament to deal with i must tell you to the house that it is. frankly didn't total if members of parliament and journalists. go about their business in fear. this situation cannot stand over sixty politicians have written a letter to london's chief of police warning of the deteriorating security situation around parliament and demanding better protection some of this nation's have said that a certain degree of abuse or heckling simply comes of the territory of being a elected politician or just a public figure in a functioning democracy but the police here now have the relevant difficult task of
a spy you have to really split your own personality into two you there is a committed jihad this that while still alive there within me and then there is the person who wanted to counter everything they want to do and then try to dismantle. i think they would do it so you have to really become a good doctor they know that a tool. you have to follow your own family in order to pull them. out if you join us for the sunday program police in the german city of but i'm and have released a video of monday's attack on an m.p. from the unseen migrant old tongue that if germany pati it shows
a three man approaching sixty six year old member frank magnets from behind. to run up to him and attack him before the group flees leaving the victim on the ground the police investigation is ongoing frank magnates suffered serious injuries remains hospitalized right now if he described the incident as an assassination attempt a magnet so though he did speak to watsky about the attack. i was at the new year function organized by the wires or courier newspaper of the party shortly before six and went to the car park to my car i took a short cut through an area i don't really like and there was a mistake i went through the square next to the cd theatre there are normally no people there the only people there were there were two laborers who were loading their car and i went past them then around thirty meters away or so it came to a point at which i was knocked unconscious when he came round i realised i was lying in the street and someone was shaking my arm and asking if my wallet and my
bottle phone were still in me that person then dropped me against the wall blood was running down my face someone called the police and then violence last friday and e.f.t. office and lower saxony was targeted in a and other attack and no one was injured but the blast caused damage to the. building as well as to neighboring property and vehicles three suspects have since been detained by police are working on the assumption that that attack was politically motivated a german lawyer and media pundit maximillian told us that if the members don't feel safe in many parts of the country there is an atmosphere in the country that everything which is right wing. conservative. man is and is evil and i think there are some crazy s. and some criminals who believe that they now have the right to get. these acts which are regretted by the literati of people but in sexily there is no problem
there is that once there is a public hearing if it is able to to hold it but waiting on brain when parts of it's possible to organize the inspiration or to have probably during the for instance in kowloon there was a maturing of three members of parliament and it couldn't be protected by the local police did it means we have such an anti far left leaning extremists all over germany but the conditions especially really have a very important makes of or ready it possible to have ordinary political life. the u.s. secretary of state has lashed out at the obama administration's middle east policies and call for a new chapter in fighting extremism mike pompei also highlighted the main directions of current u.s. policy for the middle east but his speech in cairo did sometimes echo the one that barack obama made in the same city ten years earlier. i've come here to cairo to
seek a new beginning between the united states and muslims around the world. the age of self-inflicted american shame is over and so are the policies that produce so much needless suffering. now. comes the real new beginning. here to iran's leaders and people that my country is prepared to move for president trump has reversed our willful blindness to the danger of the regime and withdrew from the failed nuclear deal with its false promises. the us we imposed sanctions should never have been lifted. because commitment will not weaken. indeed none of us should tolerate these extremists. the president has made the decision to bring our troops home from syria we always do and now is the time airstrikes in the region will continue as targets arise we will keep working with our partners in the
coalition to defeat isis we will continue to hunt down terrorists who seek a safe havens in libya and in yemen speech comes during a controversial phase of the u.s. campaign in syria while withdrawing his troops from the region the united states has recently stepped up the number of strikes and daniel holkins looks into this. with every u.s. intervention the question of when why and if a tool to withdraw its forces has sued only to taken center stage and both debate and controversy syria is the latest example of how much confusion this discussion has already caused. the first problem to solve is how the withdrawal will look it still remains a mystery not only to the world but seemingly also to u.s. officials themselves they're all coming back and they're coming back now they said again recently that we have more time is it no you can't have any more time we're going to be removing our troops i never said we're doing it that quickly. i want to
wipe your timetable when you want to be said for a month what is the. rioters do you think they should go over time but we're a we're withdrawing is it mission accomplished as with george bush's. iraq war speech things that look that clear and simple. and the biggest problem of all just how will the u.s. balance the interests of its permanent and temporary allies in the region we're going to be discussing the president's decision to withdraw or to do so from northeast syria in a way that makes sure that the. defense of israel and their friends in the region. they won't leave until they're safe and this is a red line for turkey a longstanding nato ally any kurd linked conditions or caviar to simply unacceptable for ankara. if the withdrawal is put off with ridiculous excuses like
the turks are massacring kurds which does not reflect the reality we will implement this decision and we haven't even spoken about containing iran. also does the defeat of isis automatically equal us exit president trump certainly seem to think so we have won against isis we've beaten them and we've beaten a badly but others of like. john bolton still talk of the continuing battle against islamic state u.s. forces continue as strikes in syria which show no sign of abating which brings me to this next point. and despite the concerns of top officials the pentagon is already taking a more relaxed that is shoot to their current strike reports the continued degree of vises leads to decreased connecticut t.t.c. against the terrorist organization our intent is to reduce the number of reports while maintaining transparency reports will decrease from weekly to twice
a month and releases will no longer indicate a specific time location or even target for such strikes it's an indication that the united states is not really withdrawing from from syria in any meaningful way. i think it means that they are plan to continue with their effort to undermine and attack the syrian government in one form or another they have not yet given up their idea of basically promoting division within syria the effort to break off northeast syria and effectively create a separate and he in that the kurdish region that effort is failing for various reasons but there and elsewhere there is still a long term goal to prevent syria from being a strong stable united force that is independent of both washington and riyadh and if the hope for the u.s.
plan in syria was a new year new strategy isn't quite materialized with the u.s. administration seemingly as confused as the rest of us are just a small sampling of some of the top stories over the past one week international with our if you're around half an hour would be great for you to join us the weekly quit sounds very soon. yeah.
so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confrontation let it be an arms race off and this very dramatic development is only really i'm going to resist i don't see how our strategy will be very critical. to sit down and. police officials are always telling us oh we can have everything at the same time we can have peace and democracy blah blah blah in a conflict situation or in a war situation that's not true is that instead of telling people what you can't have everything and then failing to deliver on everything and all the family care and say ok you can have peace like some kind of peace you can have some kind of
groups. didn't get it right when. i started out as a very conservative republican like every person in my army community and upstate new york in the fifty's. my father was a member of the john birch society he was very opposed to the new labor unions catholics jews and. he was actually not that unusual and my dad for those attitudes. because i was a good ass.
