principles. in the same way the jewish community won't be told what they. need to change they need to get back to a key understanding of what islam is what it is and how we need to go because most probably to do with. just after midday in boston 10 pm in kathmandu and 7 in the evening right here in moscow this choose the may the 28th welcome to our 2 international our top story donald trump is encouraging japan to increase its military capability the u.s. president who's in tokyo could help the u.s. to fend against threats in the asia pacific region quote beyond and america's face
president mike pence touched on those perceived threats to during a speech at the elite military academy west point in the story. you will fight on a battlefield for america some point your life if you didn't notice the words in the background that was mr vice president talking to the graduates of a top class u.s. military academy and that wasn't it how do you like this degree of certainty it is a virtual certainty that you will fight on a battlefield for america some point your life. you will lead soldiers in combat. he will have so what is the 2nd most important official in the country trying to make clear by that the good old boots on the ground will certainly be on the way to quite a few different places after all come on no one in this world would dare to send an army against america to put up a fight there nobody will realistically send soldiers to attack the superpower of
all superpowers and so men and women of westpoint no matter where you're deployed. you will be the vanguard of freedom here they are the future of basters of freedom you look at their faces and frankly it doesn't seem they're in raptures over what mr pence is saying but let's hear where in the world we might expect to see a boost in freedom in the days to come some of you will join the fight against radical islamic terrorists in afghanistan. and iraq oh these are familiar places where the pro says so to say began a while ago soon it will be 20 years any more destinations some of you will join the fight in europe where an aggressive russia seeks to redraw international boundaries by force probably in this area it's a bit of an exaggeration that the graduates will find themselves on
a battlefield taking part in nato as big war games there that's more like it. well at least for now it's only been in the form of drills for now and finally the most curious part and some of you may even be called upon to serve. in this hemisphere it won't be rocket science for you. to figure out where the boots on the ground money to be marching off to next in the western hemisphere van zyl well law where for the white house it's a classic all options are on the table plus we heard from the opposition big guy there one. he wouldn't mind at all. for the ultra is also going
head to head with the u.s. intelligence services he is demanding the declassify the origins of the new layer investigation which shows you may remember looked into alleged collusion with russia you may also remember the special counsel to your profile and no evidence of criminal conspiracy between the trump campaign and the russian government during the 2016 presidential election our senior correspondent murat because the of looks at the mass media shifted its stance on whether the us president can question the activity of the intelligence services or not. the thing with spies with all this secrets and power and egos is that really seems to goo to their heads and honestly how can you blame them they are literally be yawned public scrutiny and you wouldn't tries to stick their nose in you just stab everything that's classified and loudly denounce them as unpatriotic see it as
a very very serious and outrageous move on the part of mr trump once again trampling upon the statutory authorities of the director of national intelligence and the heads of the independent intelligence agencies how dead trump what true american would ever question why they're being wiretapped and spied upon a good thing america has m.s.n. be she true patriots this is the bread and full time so he can vent his frustrations for everyone to hear of course to do that mess. b.c. had to sacrifice their principles and integrity president obama said today he still stands by his cia chief john brennan even though it turns out the cia was indeed spying on the senate and some senators are calling for brennan to be fired now just to be clear that was in 2014 when they weren't on the same side and spying than
everyone your own elected leaders included was considered dubious these is 2019 and the word spying is now considered politically incorrect it offends people whose people who secretly eavesdrop and record and film everyone agents the good guys. a talking point from the president and those around him telling congress buying did occur on the trump campaign it's a loaded word to know the implications of using that word has now gone trump's favorite new word and the trump media's favorite new word. senate intelligence chair dianne feinstein accuse brennan cia of secretly tracking the senate's investigation into one of the worst abuses in recent cia history and now factor in this huge new scandal the fact that brennan cia was spying on members of congress the cia was spying on the senate intelligence committee basically busting into
their computers but i give m s n b c too much credit or others to washington post gave brennan his column where he publishes pieces with nubile noble titles i will speak out until integrity returns to the white house promises well done washington post it takes courage to set aside what you believe in to go back on your word but again it's been 5 years who remembers things like the. that right the guardian same thing. cia director john brennan lied to you on to the senate fired him. why is donald trump attacking the u.s. intelligence community surprisingly brennan isn't working for the guardian yet one by one though the pundits and the seeing wrong from right the question is are they
going to demand brennan's resignation or accountability within the cia patriotic answer by the way is no holding the cia accountable would be sure to put secret agents who do top secret stuff and drink martinis and add things and carry out special secret missions do you know i didn't see anything improper on lawful and yes james clapper brennan's former boss is now a c.n.n. employee i'll tell you this every true american can be proud of their a brave brave people watch over you and record everything you do or say they and night whether you want it or not and if times or politics change in 5 years no one will remember it ever happened.
i want to turn attention now to another big story of the day while not is still developing serbia has put its military on full alert after kosovo sense special police units into the contested republic serb dominated north arresting a number of individuals suspected of quote criminal activities. belgrade has courage to rise the reigns as a provocation and warned it will react swiftly if costs of the serbs are threatened the breakaway territories authority. he's insisted however that the operation was aimed only at tackling organized crime smuggling rings to u.n. employees were also detained during the mission serbia lost control over kosovo after a nato intervention back in 1990. 2 recognize its 2008 declaration of independence i discussed there choose these flare up with double quarter. tensions
with serbia suddenly spiked earlier today after kosovo special police was deployed into a serb majority region of northern kosovo now serbian president alexander has put the military on high alert he's saying that 23 people were arrested mostly serbs and bosniaks while kosovo authorities are saying that number is at 30 serbia's deputy director of the office of kosovo says that this was this raid was actually an act of intimidation against sort of the day's action you know where there are. very dangerous section. is another approach unfortunately one of the many in the long line of acts similar to this the only one and the mean objective and that is to frighten serbs living in the north of course into exile but the cost of a prime minister. didn't deny says that it was part of an anti smuggling and
organized crime operation in the area kosovo further urged ethnic serbs in the the area to support the police claiming that this fight is the path to further integration with the west and nato urged all parties to remain calm at the same time taking kosovo side in this deal with the police operation was conducted over the whole to retrieve kosovo not just to move north and differently was an. it was aimed at fighting against crime and corruption the un actually released a statement about it saying that 2 employees at the u.n. mission in kosovo war arrested and later hoss. but allies to the statement also threatened legal responses if any more harm were to be done any harm to united nations stoffel be met with the highest degree of diplomatic and international legal responses one of the detained personnel was a russian but he's already been released the russian foreign ministry called his detention a blatant provocation as as the employee had diplomatic immunity marias a hot of the foreign ministry spokeswoman said that this is only going to lead to
escalating tensions in the region it is obvious to such a provocative behavior by kosovo is the result of u.s. and e.u. long term policies of indulgence tour of them very leaders they're used to being excused everything such steps lead to the ask a lesion of the ethnic tensions and makes efforts of the international community for the post conflict regulation completely useless. there's a deep history to all this is there really is a fractured. tell us more about the long standing on the moss the i know you could be here for quite a while but just the me and aspects of well you know these. tensions in the region seriously worsened after nato was bombing of yugoslavia in 1909 and separatist insurgency came to power in kosovo afterwards and declared independence in 2008 now that to this day the serbian government doesn't recognize that declaration and they consider nato's intervention in the region breach of international law.
the parliament of the republic. now earlier today serbia did warn the european union that the government will active kosovo special police has not withdrawn from this region so that was quite a bit a long time ago the special police are still there so perhaps we'll see some international reactions in the next in the coming hours. serbian canadian film director boris is all the belief and he told me earlier directly that cos of those western backers are attempting to ferments regional. if you look at them or where insulation stands that was completely sad but only christian or so and the so
called the public of kosovo but also by western countries which it undermined of this process from day one has its situation where are those who grieve and when there are fully implemented by the cost of all these side syria has implemented the . proof you know is not worth 0 effort to do so instead they are here in a relationship between he then decides who is better i must say ringback. this is a peace in the region they have been on the run and i of course i don't want to see that refusing because i assume the only that he will countries are behind this escalation because they are the ones who runs the show because it was not because of the audience here it was you know they were there are. teachers in finland fly got concerns about muslim students fasting during ramadan i'll explain why after the break.
when almost seemed wrong. why don't we all just don't. let me. get to shape out these days because that's ok and engagement equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. climate we were at camp rounds of america i think it's called there's like a chain of these campgrounds and trailer parks across america so yeah these types of organizations would be rolled out into a big a rural up so you have economies of scale you now have lots and lots of trailer parks all socialize reporting to one corporate behavior on wall street and they're
extracting tickles and dimes and a lot of people are such. a low again after european elections left the house of brussels fragmented e.u. leaders are in the belgian capital for talks on who's going to lead the bloc forward centrist is stablished in parties were dealt a bloody nose in the vote many countries across the blocs or right wing and liberal factions told the poles. the reports there was no shortage of political drama in the run off either. for months pundits have been predicting a rise in anti establishment parties ahead of the e.u. elections for once they were wronged but across the bloc in the weeks leading up to
the vote panic was setting in and let's be clear that panic was and without ground scandals emerged all reemerged in a timely fashion. take martin pen days before france headed to the polls the e.u. top court ordered her to pay back 300000 euros to the european parliament this followed a case in which the national rally had been accused of paying an aide incorrectly but the timing felt off it was almost as if it was a way to tell voters that her party just couldn't be trusted that came hot on the heels of accusations that former trump strategist steve bannon was actually the one pulling all the pens strings yet the public didn't seem to care and the national rally still talked the polls here in france other scandals that were rife in the
media included one russians well at least the alleged russians no shock there but of course not a single troll in sight. it was of course f p the party which was in coalition best ink people's party found itself under the spotlight not for its potentially dubious policies but for a good old cash influence gambit. revici's. he says there was even an attempt to drag le pen's name into the thick gate as it became known a few months ago marine le pen was singing the praises of austrian vice chancellor heinz christian straka saying how formidable he was struck as being forced to
resign we find out why he was trying to sell his services to foreign forces behind this nationalist movement is a submission to foreign forces despite this the f p o still managed to pick up just over 17 percent of the vote in austria. there was also of course the elections very own 2 moment one swedish democrats candidate accused the other of sexual harassment and even though this scandal washed away it didn't hamper the anti immigration party's performance they increased their share of the vote to more than 15 percent. and despite merkel. warning the populace party's wanted to destroy europe we are haring to deal with populist movements that in many areas are contemptuous
of our of fail use and want to destroy the europe of the values we represent we have to stand up to this these parties significantly increase their representation in many parts of the e.u. sex money the long arm of washington reaching for controlling europe nothing seemed to put voters off seeking something new what is clear from the results of these elections is that the old guard could no longer count on the masses to support them in blind faith what europeans want is something different it seems a godless want that is. r.t. paris. ok moving on now our teachers in finland have expressed concern over muslim students fasting during the holy month of ramadan they claim it affects the students' concentration during classes. ramadan is noticeable do you increase thing saya the never do school life we cannot 1st feature or give injections with
nutrients we can do is advise parents not to force children to fast fasting for young children can be successful at home not at school without food this year ahead of ramadan authorities in a southern finnish city called on schools and all to observe the fast and some institutions have reportedly been offering water on extended breaks to muslim students ramadan which ends on monday is the most sacred month in the muslim calendar people abstain from food and drink from sunrise all until sunset it's considered to be a period of purification and the 4th keep off islam. you will politicians in germany including the health minister calling for a quote more compatible form of islam to be promoted to preserve european traditions and culture instead of tolerating symbols of a reactionary missile journalistic form of islam we must promote the development of a european islam which shares our values in order to preserve our free european way
of life while we discussed this earlier and really the crux of the rock came down to the line between faith like civility. the central principles of the stomach faith are non-negotiable in this same where the jewish community want to be told what they can and cannot believe and i think that's a really dangerous precedent is being crossed your of this war on islam which is about demonizing and taking away the rights of muslims to practice their faith finished. sensibly do run the best education system in the world with their liberal nordic minds decide that they want to help muslim kids out a little bit and are trying to inject a little bit of liberalism and a little bit of tolerance into people who otherwise should know better there is a liberal societies like the scandinavian countries who talk about liberalism who talk of individual freedom of speech and if you do a choice but in reality you want to restrict that for one section of society and i
think that's deeply wrong if you go to tampa and you meet the finnish muslims and my kids are half inish you will see that they are very accustomed very tribal eyes come from a certain culture and tradition they're not used to having open dialogue integration liberal tolerant values which came from the islamic traditions to europe in the 1st place so muslims do need to change they need to get back to a key understanding of what islam is what islam isn't and we need to get our house in order because muslims have got problems to deal with there is a why discussion to be had you know the muslims are very passionate. and we've got to ensure that we educate our fellow citizens who are not muslim about the benefits but also about the challenges of fasting look i think whether it's the issue of fasting whether receive the headscarf whether it's the any other range of issues when we're talking about how islam co-exists a lot of debate a lot of pressure on how do muslims whether they assimilate or whether they integrate the key point here is about tolerance it's about respect and for muslims
it's about returning to the prophetic way which is one of tolerance to respect multi-faith coexistence and i can raise an. islam you see today i'm not saying people should go to hard manichean issue but we need to learn that bodies of tolerance and liberate them back from the europeans who took it from us in the 1st place and the islam that people are trying to say no so that's the way it should be . ok you know what some are pretty much a policy and many parts of the world. can expect the usual warnings if you're heading to the beach sharks sunstroke little umbrellas it's not all ice cream and some castles according to the u.s. consumer product safety commission. as you know. provides beachgoers the benefits of shade on hot sunny days at the
shore get a burst of can make the summer accessories harmful to those around them watch as witnesses capture a beach umbrellas. is coming from here you want to tilt you on this way into the wind that way the wind and the umbrella. no one wants to take away your umbrellas just your umbrella as if war. now if only someone would protect me from. none of us are safe until we have a fact if national beach umbrellas control. there you go watch for that we're crossing to london the kaiser report crew in
moments marxist is here standing by to stay close for that and then collins here with all the latest global news updates. join me every thursday on the alex simon chill and i'll be speaking to guests of the world of politics small business i'm show business i'll see you then. you know world of big partisan movie lot and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that made history media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door on the back and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now for watching closely watching the
hawks. when we all make this manufactured to sentenced him to public wealth. when the ruling class is protect themselves. when the crime and merry go round lifts only the one percent. we can all middle of the room signals. room i mean real news is real world. kaiser this is the kaiser report this is stating this is stacy harbor and you know
where continue in the 2nd half with yet another interview with dan collins he is the head researcher heisenberg capital and he lived in china for 20 years so it's really great information about china what's going on there you know there is one story they keep on doing the rounds these days and as the rare earth elements you know there are what are the 17 of these elements and they're actually not all that rare but 80 to 90 percent of them are produced by china simply because the process of processing these rare earths out of the dirt is really environmentally unsound very toxic so the u.s. used to produce the most rare earth elements from a single mine in california a mountain pass but that stops in the late ninety's seventy's early eighty's when china was willing to become the great polluter of earth and take on that responsibility just so you know when you hear these stories about rare earth
elements that they're actually quite abundant just by the name of i think of the leeching yes it is the process to extract that it is a veyron mostly horrible yeah the acid leaching you have to do it like a 100 times you have to keep on doing it over and over like you know you can compare it to fracking but at least add some lee going through once or twice you know these toxic chemicals going through your water supply but you know what trump i wanted to just point out as we try to compete with china what we're doing is just basically doing a race to the bottom here is the headline e.p.a. plans to get thousands of pollution deaths off the books by changing its math and if we do this and once the e.p.a. does show. basically lower deaths caused by pollution we'll be able to increase our coal production and go to that 18th century technology of coal and you know at least trampled.
