7:02 am
a factory google buzz you in the meeting began on the cherry notes with the two leaders exchanging football shirts with each other's name on all the back slapping the page and tree really a relief you would think for both sonora who's facing a political scandal at home over reports of a legend tie to violent gangs and has more on those allegations. back at home bolton r.-o. is facing a pretty serious political scandal not over his words but over his ties to right wing paramilitary groups something brazil isn't torrijos for.
7:03 am
earlier this month two former police officers were arrested and charged with the killing of marielle franco a left wing elected official now when the police raided the home they found one hundred seventeen automatic rifles as well as computers full of intelligence information on left wing journalists activists and politicians so where was this mini command center of extremism located well it turns out it was on the same block as both in our us home in fact
7:04 am
a photo of both sonora with one of the suspected killers has surfaced when confronted about it also nara gave a flat out denial media that has always criticize me they want to do simplistically a connection but i never saw the gentleman in my gated community i don't need is going to have much time to you know you can gauge in social life with them this is not the only tie to extremism back in january five former leaders of a right wing gang were arrested and it was revealed that the wife and daughter of one of the gang leaders was actually employed by bolsa narrows son flavio son of the brazilian leader joined his father in taking a photograph with the gang leaders at a birthday party furthermore flavio also gave an award to one of the gang members a medal of honor. of his friends it's. seen old flutist those pictures listen to this is. a shift for the position of the president in the presidency now there was an incident back
7:05 am
in two thousand and eleven that also raise suspicion a judge was murdered after a controversial trial and we heard this interesting statement from balsa narrow son made this judge be with god but the absurd and. police offices and court sessions contributed to having many enemies. so when balsa gnarls sat down with donald trump he had some pretty serious charges hanging over his head a lot more serious than say unreleased tax returns now also narrow before he met with donald trump sat down with another powerful u.s. entity the u.s. central intelligence agency now the cia's ties to right wing extremists and death squads in south and central america is hardly new information and at this point there got to be folks inside of trump's team who are wondering if his photo op with this rightwing brazilian counterpart is really such a good idea mop and r.t.
7:06 am
new york president trump also used the joint briefing with the brazilian leader to slum nicolas maduro for choking venice we lose economy. it's happening there is a disgrace this was one of the wealthiest countries in the world and all of a sudden it's just it's grief stricken poverty stricken no food no water no air conditioning no anything no power for a long time last week no power and that's going to break down again because it's being held together by threats such claims are widely heard while as you can hear washington claims venezuela is completely impoverished essentially two filmmakers who spent a month shooting a documentary in caracas the company say the situation is not as bad as it's being portrayed in western media they share their findings with my colleague. but i guess it's. you know if you made it you'll buy some of those medals on c.n.n. you. get access to the us a i was going to. let you know things.
7:07 am
before they didn't feel that you know this is dangerous but just the thought of. actually when i arrived in caracas before before actually as it sort of take a few steps back before i went to venice whether there are a lot of people i know in the journalist community is there well actually alan maybe you should take a pause are going to venezuela you know the crime rate is around us the economic and social situation is appalling not to mention the political situation and actually when i arrived i mean life was still bustling in caracas something people were still going to jobs people were still continuing with their lives people going to find it hard to believe at the u.n. say three point four million but as wayland have fled to the country three point four million people don't leave the country if everything's ok or at least manageable. well this is interesting i wonder where these figures come because according to the government the. people choosing last years seven percent of.
7:08 am
you know school. during that particular mission it went for seven percent up so also a hundred and twenty thousand. actually settle last year in minnesota. hyperinflation it concentrates on those things but it still seems like cheap like electricity bills bills other teams give us a rounded picture of this because you spent a month in venezuela more recently than the probably most of our audience did and let's face it you work in the news business you know that pictures of suffering sells more than than anything else but even in troubled countries life has a spectrum so give us a fuller picture then life in venezuela tough as it is how is it really. as you said it is tough i mean it is hard i would say yes this is our moment columnist
7:09 am
but i would say definitely the government has made mistakes but i would also say the u.s. sanctions and he definitely sort of feel the effect of u.s. sanctions in the sense of lack of u.s. dollars the lack of being able to use your u.s. financial instruments and i mean i would say that people here do. you know the society functions and regardless of the conflicting information on the effects of u.s. sanctions donald trump is set on squeezing venezuela's economy. but we haven't done the toughest of sanctions as you know we've done. i would say right down the middle but we can go a lot tougher if we need to do that america's existing sanctions on venice we have under run really cause a surge in oil prices which hit a twenty nineteen high in choose the the rise has also been supported by all i'm going supply cuts from oil cartel opec america seems to be the big winner here
7:10 am
last year it's all oil production on exports climbs significantly as you can see here comes admits washington is pushing domestic she'll production. sanctions play a key role in the not only propping up the price of oil but also in allowing u.s. oil producers to gain a larger market share if you have sanctions and you're reducing the opportunity for the iranians and the israelis to sell their oil well that means the u.s. shale producers can sell their oil through their refineries and on the texas coast in the northeast that previously used them as well in oil and for example i don't
7:11 am
think the price of oil can stay where it is i think is slowly going to decline notwithstanding whatever the saudis and russia do and nigeria and others with regard to production cuts i think the slowing in europe and slowing in china and now the slowing of the economy in the u.s. and that's why the sanctions will probably continue and maybe even intensify to try to reduce the supply to get the price back up. to a story with potentially far reaching consequences now the german government bear is legal responsibility for u.s. drone strikes directed and controlled from german territory that has been decided by a court in a case brought by families of civilian victims in yemen breaking that down for us here stunning hawkins' in berlin. landmark case in germany with a court in the city of months the ruling that the german government does bear at
7:12 am
least partial responsibility for ensuring that the use of its advice in the southern city of ramstein by the united states air force does act here strictly to international law and to. twelve yemenis lost relatives five sell been. lost his brother in law asylum been a new job or who was an air mom alongside his brother will lead in a u.s. drone strike the germans through an air base on german soil were involved in these strikes and what had happened to my family and it is possible that my family would not have been a target of such strikes and drenched an air base not provided such information the case was initially dismissed by a court in cologne back in twenty fifteen the court has now ruled that in fact the base did play a central role in facilitating the relaying of data for drone strikes in yemen judges ordered the government to take all appropriate measures through ensure that the u.s. force was complying with international law and to press washington if necessary to
7:13 am
get the answers they required it also ordered the government to investigate the questions and the concerns put forward by the family surrounding the legality of that airstrike selim gave a sermon he addressed the killings conduct of al qaeda and challenge them to present a religious authority that is willing to debate with him so he can demonstrate to the people that this behavior of al qaeda is wrong he was taken out by the american strike unfortunately he was not killed by al qaeda he was killed by an american missile germany is a country that stopped arms shipments to saudi arabia which is a key player in the yemeni conflict described as one of the worst humanitarian catastrophes of this century and also a key u.s. ally however the use of the ramstein air base for facilitating drone strikes has carried on and this has come in for criticism from human rights representatives i think it is definitely
7:14 am
a constant contradiction that the german government is seeing there the arms sales to the saudis for the were in yemen have to be stopped in at the same time. do not intervene to stop the drone strikes on yemen via ramstein air base this court case hasn't played out entirely how the job or family wanted it to they were hoping for a complete ban on the use of ramstein air force for anything to do with u.s. drone strikes in yemen he german government has said they will look into the ruling they will study it carefully but this can be viewed as an important first step in perhaps looking at the legality of various international legal framework surrounding the use of ramstein air base for conducting unmanned drone strikes in the yemen conflict ok i'm going to pack in as many stories as i possibly can after the break join me in ninety seconds.
7:15 am
join me every thursday on the alex i'm unsure when i'll be speaking to a guest of the world of politics sports business i'm show business. love and the wealthy in america decided we're all playing anymore we're going to just grab as much as we can of the cash out there in the system and put it you know offshore and that's why there's not twenty two trillion offshore and so there you battle of credit in the system shrunk the central bank instead of punishing the banks just flooded the system with more of the fia and then those who are the paranoid yachts versus the have nots decided you know we're going to put that more offshore so they just keep trying and shipping it off shore in a completely bypassing the economy and so the economy is getting more starved for
7:16 am
credit and the people are getting more rest. again doomsday partly being delayed some fucked checking by a news agency has exposed flaws in claims made by us democrat stuff there's just over a decade left to save the earth from global warming is franco brings us up to date even back when t.v.'s look like that kid's cartoons would portray those saving us from pollution as superheroes i am captain i want to. see. today you just can't be
7:17 am
a successful democrat and presidential hopeful without being a bit of captain planet democrats be like how do i sound cool and make republicans look bad at the same time. thank god there is climate change the scientists are absolutely unanimous on this that we have no more than twelve years to take incredibly bold action on this crisis what the intergovernmental panel on climate change say is that we have twelve years twelve years and we're like the world is going to end in twelve years if we don't address climate change why this kerry deadline of twelve years a few months ago u.n. environmental experts put together yet another alarming report showing the earth is continuing to heat up it's bad for the planet and everyone who lives on it some interpret it the following way experts say that we have until twenty thirty to
7:18 am
avoid catastrophe the world has little more than a decade time is running out to prevent global warming and he says the time's up andrea that the world has to do something we're reaching the cliff edge a little faster quite a bit faster and so with snowballs into a big trendy protest children have the impression their generation could be doomed . that we have twelve years to turn this around but suddenly there's that hoops moment the associated press checks what those who want to run for the white house after say for facts what was it that mr o'rourke said again the scientists are absolutely unanimous on this that we have no more than twelve years so a.p. actually got in touch with the scientists the panel did not say we have twelve years left to save the world this has been a persistent source of confusion the report never said we only have twelve years
7:19 am
left well have a look at what they wrote on some liberal websites after the a.p. piece came out that's right on climate and the a.p. fact check is wrong it is the a.p. this is incorrect about climate change. not by rule oh sure how can a democrat candidate get something wrong especially when his party essentially chose to rely on the so-called green new deal ahead of the election it's a set of proposals to address climate change you just can't lead down your next generation of voters does a matter of faith and belief by guys like bedo and others who will walk out and say the world is going to end it's twelve years and not receive any pushback and there's no laughter there's no one to going no you've got to be kidding me there's no one standing up to them so you've clearly lost your mind what you have are a bunch of probably just not even going terrible do something elections in this country anyway are not about these people they're about turning out your base and
7:20 am
keeping the other guy's votes home and if you want to turn out your base if you're a leftist candidate preaching about climate change the other side is determined to see us all die horribly that's going to do get the job done for you. twenty years ago for a fund to see to pitch it big exceptional script work out of marketing perhaps were sufficient pretty much but these days things are different and you're expected not only to write and then through all of the story but to also address current political and social trends and what do you do if you're all best seller doesn't quite measure up to standards today where you could tweak your character so that they couldn't. i can't you can. i can see.
7:21 am
their relationship was incredibly intense it was passionate and it was enough relationship i'm less interested in the sexual side though i believe there is a section to mention to this relationship. wow in other great percolation from j.k. rowling. j.k. rowling confirm some cuts to the police abuse ok everywhere except in the books of the movies there were scenes in the movie that look cut for time and had they remained it would clearly shown temple the scale i just received an hour from here should not be. allowed this don't tell me voldemort has retained her don't phone demote jerry mike. white skin was never specified the nobs black my.
7:22 am
mind's my face for sticking out from behind a tree. you read that book yet while a guy very yeah he's a transgender. a man is in a wheelchair can't put it down syndrome what is going to church is actually i don't know all of them. she pokes notes about gay relationships that simply a fact but obviously what she does do is after a few years you know where the ticket sales are down and what they sells the books with out there what she does is she just comes up. with a few little things to get out into the media and there's a saying look good luck to us you know this is show business and she has a right to do that but i don't think that most people look at the reports of book. one of the great works of gay liberation there's every existed in the world i'm not lee so because it's intended for children i don't think that it's appropriate to
7:23 am
explore very ardent fables when you're dealing with children. catch a developing story now a senior adviser to canadian prime minister justin trudeau has resigned in an ongoing corruption scandal michael wernick is the fourth senior official to step down over trudeau's alleged interference in a bribery case it involves s.n.c. law one of the world's largest engineering and construction firms and twenty fifteen the company was charged with bribery and fraud in libya it allegedly paid ninety eight million dollars in bribes to get duffy your officials to secure lucrative contracts including the world's biggest irrigation project the firm claims that all the people implicated in the case have since left the company prime minister trudeau has been accused of pressuring the attorney general to drop the investigation he denies any wrongdoing i and my staff always acted
7:24 am
appropriately and professionally well since the allegations surfaced just introduce approval rating has fallen from forty one percent done to as you can see thirty three percent right now not has cast doubts over his chances of winning a new term because elections they're coming up october time. bruno an independent political analyst he is of the belief that the corruption scandal is only the tip of this particular ice burg. s.n.c. lower then it's hardly the only scandal and problem and then barrus meant for the government. since eleven len scandal has taken the limelight away from the huawei scandal the fact that china is now pushing the case and they say that qantas definitely influencing its. justice with politics trudeau has ruined his brand he's no longer the sun around which everyone else wants to revolve their they're trying to wash away the scandals but the problems are just
7:25 am
accumulating and he's become a liability not to mention then the budget and the increasing the deficit which will play into the hands of the conservatives so the number of issues piling on the government where it's bursting is ok a reminder you can always get stuck into more mid-week stories on our website on artie's twitter page we'll keep you informed up to the minute more great program start head in moments this is our control room. what politicians do you should. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president if you. want to be. two going to be the person was like them before three of them or the good people. interested in the longer.
7:26 am
