1:03 pm
on i think this is a necessary measure. it's not the army. shows the failure of the government and the failure of our political. i think it's the army opens file it will prove that crisis management is not sufficient i think they're bringing the army as a way of responding to the crisis but it's not a solution to the problem yellow that's protests continue for the nineteenth weekend but this saturday it's a different location it is less violent the butt of the movement continues. the syrian democratic forces have declared a final victory over islamic state after capturing the terrorist groups pockets of resistance. yeah there no medical what thirty of the mcleod on behalf of the syrian democratic forces and all the soldiers and allies that fort with us in the same trenches today we announced the defeat of the so-called islamic state and the

1:05 pm
not as what trump is saying we have won against isis we've beaten them and we've beaten him badly now we've won it's time to come back we just took over you know you kept hearing it was ninety percent ninety two percent the caliphate in syria. jumped back and forth declaring victory saying there's another battle another victory so we'll see how long it will be before the next time they declare a last victory and what will this mean then for the four hundred u.s. troops that are still in syria well there's a there's a few hundred. foot is a border crossing between syria and iraq the united states was quick to jump there stablished a presence they've kept it for years it basically cut off syria and iraq so an iran iraq damascus syria route is impossible while those troops are there
1:06 pm
basically the united states holding out for along with the rebels there is a strategic it is a pain for the syrian government it's. basically a thorn in their side and nevertheless there's a lot of united states allies on the ground so. kurds for example who they've armed to the teeth and my bet is and many other pundits experts predict this that the united states will stay to safeguard those allies syrian kurds against. while we have completed the territorial defeat of isis in syria and iraq we still have much work to do we've been clear that the campaign is not over we will continue to support the coalition's operations in syria to ensure this enduring defeat asked for the final victory again trungpa. trampas jump

1:08 pm
might not even take place next week as expected throwing breaks it into further disarray following all the twists and turns for us is probably. remember that simpsons episode where bart keeps touching the electrified cupcake. it all looks a bit like terrorism a's it's had to get her brags that deal to parliament the woman tasked with leading the country at its grave us to our first since world war two hasn't got to many people to defend her it's just going oh no no no no no she is the roadblock to this house reaching a majority when will she develop a backbone and stand down to do was this mission to disaster week week. britain's departure from the e.u. is likely to be delayed and the wheels off boiling off the brags that bus but if
1:09 pm
you think about it to reason may wasn't the one that called the referendum in the first place a certain previous prime minister did and she has hammered out that deal with the e.u. like she was supposed to but the politicians in parliament won't sign off on it because some of them are hard bragg's it is that want to stick it to brussels and many of them remain is that want to stick with brussels and pleasing the politicians in a predominantly remain a parliament while carrying out the will of the people is turning into an impossible task some say she's trapped like the time she couldn't get out of this car carrying the poisoned brake that challenge. even donald trump has had a dig i'm surprised it helped their believe it's all gone voices of support are rare i don't always agree with her but i know her to be a woman of coverage and i also feel sorrier for because we have actually given her

1:11 pm
deliver britain's departure from the e.u. this i am absolutely sure you the public have had enough your charge of the infighting your charge of the political games and the arcane procedural rounds tired of m.p.'s talking about nothing else but bricks it when you have real concerns about our children's schools our national health service knife crime you want this stage of the bricks it process to be over and done with i agree on your side she might be forgiven for wondering if there is anyone left on her it's. close morality director of the research consultant organization pangea why explained why every step in the budget process is only making the situation more complicated. when briggs it was first announced as an idea as a concept and there was no meat on the ball as to what the concept is no surprise
1:12 pm
us to the situation room now so are less the identity of briggs it is made clear these destructions and stalling methods will only continue i think the sentiment right now in parliament is that. it's almost an impossibility of this deal going through and if it does go through it will go through under very pressured measures which means peace in parliament won't vote with what they believe is to be the best way for forward but will do it because the time pressures are so tight which almost holds parliament to run them saying this is the only deal we have and you better put it through because your certainties are too big and too widespread to even imagine. the long awaited report into alleged russian collusion in the twenty sixteen us presidential election has finally been submitted by special counsel robert mueller the confidential document was handed to the justice department which says that miller has not recommended any new indictments with details his only
1:13 pm
scalable been. report has been submitted the final report from bob muller the special counsel appointed two years ago to look into allegations that donald trump had colluded with russia during the two thousand and sixteen elections and at this point no further indictments are being called for we're hearing from the white house which has spoken up and said the next steps are up to attorney general barr and we look forward to the process taking its course white house has not seen the report does not know what it contains it was simply submitted to the department of justice has long maintained there was nothing for special counsel robert mueller to find he's stood firm in saying that there was nothing to the allegations made against him let it come out let people see it that's up to the attorney general we have a very good attorney general he's a very highly respected and we'll see what happens is no collusion there was no collusion there was no obstruction there was no nothing it appears that this bob mohler report is a bit of
1:14 pm
a failure it hasn't turned up any big indictments related to russia collusion it's been two years long but we've already heard democratic party leaders talking about other options they have for keeping the scandal these scandalous allegations related to trump and russia alive now adam schiff a democrat in congress recently floated this idea for keeping the story going i said he agreed that the counterintelligence investigation may be more important than the criminal investigation because it goes to present threat to our national security whether the president and anybody around him on a compromised by foreign power there's been many occasions in which the u.s. public was told that some kind of bombshell or groundbreaking revelation was about to be revealed but it seems that the two years the report has finally concluded and people are waiting to see what is made public from that report after the u.s. attorney general makes that decision. in burra u.s.
1:15 pm
presidential hopeful for the libertarian party says the democrats benefit the most from the probe. what we've seen so far has been basically a joke this whole thing was supposed to find a russia russian collusion and so far all the indictments all the guilty pleas and there have been guilty pleas and all the people found guilty in court have been found guilty of things better other than russian collusion this was supposed to be a big whole thing that was going to under under uncover some connection between trump and russia and it turns out to be just a bunch of petty usual nonsense just normal politics this is not russia inclusion this is a waste of time effort and energy so i expected or democrats will drag this out as much as they possibly can not because they think there's anything to be found but because they know that this trial this kind of circ is is helping to energize the democratic base helping them to say look trump is really bad for these reasons so to come this hour

a canadian prime minister just in judo is being challenged over his feminism details after the break. what politicians do something to. put themselves on the line. to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. or some want to be.
1:17 pm
it's going to be close this is what the four three of the ten people. interested falls in the logs. welcome back a canadian opposition lawmaker has lashed out at the country's prime minister calling him a fake feminist in a fiery parliamentary session michelle rambo accused just into job of silencing powerful women in an ongoing corruption scandal. the use of the term their menace they are is one more time if this kind minister such a minute why does he want to muscling the former attorney. the former attorney
1:18 pm
general of the lawmaker mentioned was one of the first to blow the whistle on the bribery case that shaken the canadian government to its very core jodi will soon raybold says that she was pressured by trudeau to drop an investigation into the canadian engineering giant s. and c. level in that company's one of the world's largest construction firms it allegedly paid ninety eight million dollars to gadhafi era officials to secure lucrative contracts including the world's biggest irrigation project or lease now accused of being a fake feminist the trudeau had earlier heaped praise on those defending women's rights and proudly declared that that's exactly what he does for the critics claim that he was just looking to score cheap political points. being a feminist is the right thing to do but it's also the smart thing to do i'm going to keep saying loud and clearly that i am a feminist men should be feminists as wow i am proud of that maternal love
1:19 pm
is the love that's going to change the future of mankind so we'd like you to look for it we're going to see people coming not necessarily mankind. there's lots of things you can do for your mentor feminist as a man but here's a simple one don't interrupt me it. is not about holding true to one's values it is not about actually having a code of ethics it is about winning elections government has made it such a priority they have used accusations of sexism they have used the term feminist to prop up their party bring this up in the conversation because they have made it
1:20 pm
such an important political debate so if your party is going to be about equality half women half men in the parliament that is going to be the hill that your party guys on that you better stand on if you're going to use that as a weapon well then be prepared for that to be used as a weapon against you trudeau when you don't live up to your own values and this will certainly make it a closer election than i initially thought and i think the conservatives could have a chance at taking pictures if trudeau continues down this road of scandal after scandal. u.k. immigration officials are facing questions after it was revealed that they used bible quotes to reject an asylum seeker from iran. i am extremely concerned that the government department could determine the future of another human being based on such a profound misunderstanding of the texts and practices of faith communities i've seen a lot over the years but even i was genuinely shocked to read this unbelievably offensive
1:21 pm
diatribe being used to justify refusal of asylum it's not the role of the home office to play theologica it is very hard to if the person is selling the truth and you need to think about what the person's motivations are but to go as far as to dig out specific verses to try and justify a claim seems extremely bizarre i have never seen anything quite like this one of the asylum seeker who has not been identified filed the claim in twenty six thing in it he said that he had converted from islam to christianity because it is a peaceful religion but immigration officials use quotes from the bible in a bid to disprove his claim in leviticus chapter twenty six god states you will pursue your enemies and they will fall by the sword before you the book of revelation is filled with imagery of revenge destruction death and violence these examples are inconsistent with your claim the converted to christianity after discovering it is a peaceful religion well the home office says the rejection letter was
1:22 pm
a one off not in line with general policies adding that it will work on more training for staff we spoke with the chairman of an immigration consultancy firm who thinks that the home office is looking for excuses to turn down refugees. it is surprising that the home office should behave that way but you know unfortunately in some respects it's not surprising because they are you know quite unreasonable around help for. a looking for excuses to turn down asylum cases even cases which many people would consider to be quite genuine so you know the unfortunate there we are the home office. are quite inventive in a way and can come up with you know whole range of reasons to fuse asylum you know which can be completely unjustified for sure the governments want to have been tough on immigration and the home office are under pressure to be nasty are helpful
1:23 pm
and so on for sure that's what's happening so perhaps it's not just the home office officials fault was also the government's for for encouraging officials to be nasty and helpful. the first cases of flown to the stunning remote scene have an unexplained mass tourist death sixty years ago in a bid to finally stablish what happened officials still can't explain why experienced hikers were found with horrific injuries including a missing tongue and eyes investigators are to reconstruct the incident in the last pass in russia's ural mountains with final results of the probe expected in the autumn. things that french thing off into theming updates coming at the top of the.
