struggling to survive but he canceled that because the fire and it did seem for a moment that they were going to be solidarity here in france as everybody stopped what they were doing and watched that fire burning that iconic building in france but within twenty four hours seemed to be a moment of solidarity has turned into an even bigger division when it to merge that some hundreds of millions of euro's had been raised for the reconstruction many people started questioning why such an amount of money could be raised in a short period for a building and not for the french people the everyday citizens who are struggling to survive and been telling their government this for a very many months if you just look at the figures eight point eight million people live in poverty in france at those latest figures from two thousand and seventeen and that means that they are living on a roundabout at less than one thousand euros per month that includes some families
10:06 pm
and many people just say look it's not enough now president macron is it due to address the nation to outline what he would like to do to stop these protests but a draft copy of his speech which was leaked last week suggested one of his big initiatives is going to be to provide more tax cuts for the middle class will that cut the mustard with the l of us protesters who are looking for a rise in the income for the lowest paid workers well we have yet to wait and see. something else that appears to be on the protesters minds is the arrest in london of wiki leaks founder julian assange a face mask was seen added to the joan of arc monument in toulouse along with a yellow vest and banners with his songs his name were also displayed in international affairs analyst georgie cause when all the things many people are frustrated over the size of donations for at a time of growing inequality they're shocked by the fact that in one night. the

10:08 pm
published a hefty document called russia gate hysteria a case of severe russia phobia it contained a detailed rebuttal the allegations made against moscow and reaches the following conclusion. the investigation didn't show any real evidence to back up claims of moscow's cyber attacks and attempts to subvert democracy all this time russia pointed to the obvious made up nature of these insinuations we call on our merican partners to finally disavow these allegations and join efforts to repair the damage to bilateral relations for the sake of our peoples and global security or the mahler report was finally released on thursday after almost two years of investigation much of it was heavily redacted it concluded that there was no collusion between russia and donald trump's campaign team during the two thousand and sixteen presidential election but it was much more guarded when it came to trump's alleged obstruction of the probe after the report's release some democrats
10:09 pm
are lewd their calls for trump to be impeached while republicans insist the president was exonerated even though miller said that is clearly not the case many media outlets now appear to be focusing on the division it has brought to us society artie's it was done of comments. trump is a traitor he's cronies are abetting him in his treachery and all of them are going to get what's coming for them this promise started to resonate across the airwaves of mainstream american channels even before the miller investigation became a thing and it started with this bombshell then senator jeff sessions met with the russian ambassador in the u.s. the controversial russian ambassador sergey this is shameful picture it is an open question whether there was collusion cooperation between trump associates during the campaign and russian officials current and former u.s. officials say he's considered one of the kremlin's top spies by u.s.
10:10 pm

10:12 pm
happens next any ideas buzz feed cocktail apologetically deleted the article no instead it blurted out more letters and words and sentences explaining that while the initial reporting was incorrect at the same time it wasn't and you make sense of that and the final jam the infamous meeting between trump's former can pain manager and the leaker in chief julian assange donald trump's former campaign manager paul man afford health secret talks with julian assange inside the ecuadorian embassy in london and visited around the time he joined trump's campaign the guardian has been told the military paid so much attention to this possibility it didn't even bother to look into it no where on its five hundred plus pages does the report mention anything of the sort and this is just barely
10:13 pm
a handful of all the bombshells and sensations and eye-openers nuked by the miller report it's still out there unphased in arrogance as obtaining their false holds there's so much invested in it over three years they've been spinning these conspiracy skier. sorry they've been spinning these conspiracy theories in essence the scam. and their credibility that's the biggest consequence of all this and so they're just trying any way they can including the front page of the new york times report shows depth of connection between trump campaign and russians and then they count up the number of contacts or alleged contacts with the russians which i think are one hundred forty or something but a lot of that of course is on trump tower or it's you know the you know we have had this exhaustive twenty two month investigation with all of the resources of the
10:14 pm
f.b.i. and the security agencies. and they didn't find it but i argue this is probably the worst moment for the u.s. media since they sold us the iraq war on the false narrative of weapons of mass destruction a long awaited report focused in detail on wiki leaks co-founder julian assange it mentions his alleged links to russia and of the leak of more than twenty thousand democratic national committee e-mails and documents the investigation though provided no solid evidence as to how the data was obtained or whether a song ties even existed and follows julian assange arrested last week by british police as filled exclusively by r t after ecuador terminated his near seventy year asylum in its london embassy is now in a maximum security prison with an extradition hearing expected early next month on u.s. charges of hacking government computer i mean while a glimpse of how he spent his time inside the embassy has emerged this is how try
10:15 pm
to stay in shape inside the tiny little kitchen polly boyko the quite unique take. needed it. sam gets out of the embassy and. everyone's favorite. i could do was embassy is looking for a decent painted decorator in the london area. andras carried out like a. battering ram the whistleblower is the passions sometimes it's love sometimes it's hate you do not hear many people saying stuff like. i want to believe. he's a complex character a man only truly understood by just two creatures on god's green earth pamela and discern this guy have you noticed there's always a can't just say now anyone who's been trapped inside
10:16 pm
a foreign embassies by groom for the last few years is assigned his famous publishing house documents on america's wars diplomats and politicians the us authorities keen to have a few stern words with him about it now this is where it gets a little bit complicated so try to keep up a staunch first of all asylum because the u.k. was considering extraditing him to sweden where he had been accused of sexual assault the way he could claim the allegations were actually part of a plot to extradite him from sweden to the us and would have agreement fate awaits him there did you follow that just rewind. half speed if you need to it boils down to this as some just supporters see him as a champion of free speech taking on the american monolith those who don't like him point to the allegations in sweden as a reason that evidence of war crimes is still evidence of war crimes even if the person telling you about them has a few shall we say easier secrecy is and even if the claim is in sweden
10:17 pm
a set up that doesn't mean washington house anyway here's a little secret the media is hiding from life is complicated tony thanks isn't always the hero so you just decide whether it's in the public's interest to see what the world's superpower is up to behind closed door was. me dale and the rest. former us vice president joe biden has now reportedly begun a good fund raising campaign for a twenty twenty presidential election campaign run putting him against veteran senator bernie sanders for the democratic ticket our poll out this week gives biden a slim one point lead ahead of sanders that is raising fears that the party faces being torn down the middle. by their very different campaign platforms are to scale up and look at the democrats' grass roots divisions. inside the offices of the democratic party elite alarm bells are going off why it seems that
10:18 pm
a progressive democratic socialist is now the front runner sanders is raising money fast and he's got a very big base of support but this isn't supposed to happen the way the game is normally played the far left is not supposed to take the nomination even on left leaning m s n b c we've got voices saying that donald trump is preferable to bernie sanders and that's quite a statement coming from a network that often portrays the donald like the anti christ i find reprehensible as a human being what a socialist can do these were dangerous to this company country as far as the strength and well being of our country the donald trump but even beyond the bernie movement the democratic party seems to be pretty well shaken up take the case of congresswoman ellen omar now the democratic leadership which has been pro israel since one thousand nine hundred forty eight sees her comments as anti-semitic congresswoman omar's use of and troops and produce accuse ations about israel
10:19 pm
support this is deeply offensive we condemn these remarks and we call upon congresswoman omar to immediately apologize for these hurtful comments but a lot of markets raising money in fact she's more popular than ever for a first term congresswoman turns out there's a lot more discontent with the israel lobby than many were aware of and then there's alexandria because you know cortez now known as a c she is a first term congressional rock star more popular and well known than people who've been in congress for years but at this point nancy pelosi is saying that her victory meant nothing you have these wings and you know c. and her group on one side said five people she even dismissed her new york city win as something that anyone or anything could do if labeled as a democrat those are districts that are solidly democratic this glass of water would win with a deal. next thing you know is this day here's what people in new york city told us
10:20 pm
about the ruckus inside of the democratic battleship democrats need to be worried period we need to like come together and figure out where the united nations is going to be and focus we're two scattered to so many voices it is certainly a split you know what i mean popularity versus the establishment dance to play in this divide between all of these and you have to get a band together to work to save your socialist democrats who are just believe you know we should give everybody everything for free and then democrats are a little more reasonable donald trump swept the white house by bucking the republican establishment and putting out a message far different than what the g.o.p. has said in recent years and it seems that now the democratic party is facing a similar submarining and shake up the democratic presidential primary is lining up to be anything but predictable caleb mop and r.t. new york former new york city council candidate marni says the democrats need to
10:21 pm
support a candidate who represents actual change for the party who really see this war going on the democratic party between the progressives and center it's no secret the democratic party is the party of the corporate his party is a party of big donor and you see them getting very very nervous bernie really represents change he's already the front runner he already has the structure he's raising enough money and he's raising enough money with small carnations and that's really really key he took campaign finance for our democratic party needs to look at what it takes to take a hard look at itself and you know who are they are they are they going to be like the republicans and basically be the party for wealthy people they need to look at the landscape and and basically. you know promised their own party and promised their world that if. about candidate they are running and doing well and is being supported and becoming the front runner they need to support that. no matter what
10:22 pm
that really what should happen. facebook is banned as some of the u.k.'s most controversial right wing groups under a new category to tackle hate speech online individuals and organizations who spread hate or attack or call for the exclusion of others on the basis of who they are have no place on facebook under our dangerous individuals and organizations policy we ban those who proclaim a violent or hateful mission or are engaged in acts of hate or violence the band groups include the english a defense league of the british national party and of britain first they are known for their harsh stance on immigration specifically from the muslim world and they have been accused of hate speech and racism here's how one of the organizations reacted. nine hundred eighty four is here who next why the so afraid of the truth we survived before the fascist facebook page and we will continue to survive
10:23 pm
our political and social commentator mo ansari the media analyst neil wallace broke down the issues surrounding facebook's latest decision. i am very skeptical about a company like facebook group run by a bunch of. billionaires from silicon valley coming from the classic liberal elite. background then are they really people we would appoint guardians of this sort of thing do we really trust their judgment are we meant to sit around and wait for laws to be implemented we need to tackle these people the methods that we use for tackling the likes of our own hard to ruin street. preachers and their online. forums for doing all of their hate preaching we need to apply that same principle to the likes of the e.t.l. of britain first in the national front what this is really is an enormous amount of virtue signalling by an appalling company facebook and instagram who are using it
10:24 pm
purely. a fig leaf for the fact that frankly over the last few years they have an appallingly laughable policy about keeping evil people off social media the real truth of the matter is these things are not small problems we knew already it from twenty eleven and twenty twelve and as brave killed what was it seventy seven people wounded two hundred nine people in the norway terror attacks he had openly admitted and it was in the dossier that was came out in the court evidence and was held to be correct he met with the senior leadership team he met with on rhetorical strategies the idea was to have these street gangs these radical people online to radicalize people online like terrorists why is it why is it that he has taken eight years since those socialist you would call them signal
10:25 pm
virtue signallers socialist labor movement youngsters kids that were slain in norway they're linked to either why did take an eight years. government's done nothing the tories have done nothing you know why they're not good now is because that under tremendous more pressure than ever before. social responsibility they have created. the state of emergency has been declared in russia's siberia as massive wildfires spread across the region so far around three hundred people including dozens of children have been forced to flee more than one hundred buildings have been destroyed as the fires continue to move towards the borders with china and mongolia and at least thirty people have suffered burn injuries with four in serious condition russia's emergency services say that the fires have been put out in a residential areas which lie east of lake by call an investigation is looking into any foul play as strong winds and increasing temperatures have made the blaze
10:26 pm
extremely difficult to get under control. does it for me i'll be back with headlines in about thirty four minutes you're watching international john thomas glad to have you with us. thanks guys but that's all survival. when customers go by you're just. well reducing our. that's undercutting but what's good for the market it's not good for the global economy. for good only if you don't sort the ball. you sit. so because you didn't.
10:27 pm
measure up plenty of. illegal among the group. except you're then he says a pool like me the folks with the security. and co. will get a preview of. the susan. says.
10:28 pm
there is a lot of talk about reform at the united nations podium and a lot of working and. that's not simply. the un members have always guarded against a system being hijacked by. the united nations after a change when its own system is structured in a bay to cement a status quo as a means of ensuring neutrality just. that i'm now joined by a helen clark former prime minister from new zealand and a former administrator of the u.n. development program but i'm clark it's such an honor talking to you thank you very
10:29 pm
much for your time the last time we talked you were in the process of running for the post of the new u.n. secretary general the job that you did in gad because four out of five permanent members support it someone else and i know that you believe that it was partly because you were a woman what made you reach that conclusion well i think gender was an icepick but i think there are clearly other major s.p.x. as will one of them is just straight geopolitics the person who succeeds must not in the end have a veto from any permanent member of secondly there's the issue of style at six in general and in reality the great powers have never knowingly selected a sixty general. who was going to speak truth to power no some have surprised the coffee anon for example on the issue of iraq but generally
10:30 pm
people who are. known as strong leaders like myself. they're probably a little bit threatened particularly when they're women because strengthen women assume a little bit differently for the strength of men but having said all that i have no regrets i think it's important that many women ran the majority of candidates were women from what i know it was the u.k. that supported theory can do this if i am. one hundred percent sure that it was only due to your professional qualities and not that change of commonwealth solidarity in. the u.k. they always said they thought it was time for women secondly they also were on the record as saying they were looking for leadership qualities so i wasn't the only person they supported they would have supported others as well but certainly they were very open to me you said.
