but it was. the. u.s. special counsel robert mueller concludes his two year probe into alleged russia collusion and recommends no new indictments. france is bracing for another weekend of yellow vests protest with the french military sparking anger by saying it reserves the right to open fire if the right is in danger lives gauge reaction in paris. moves he's asked for what he did last saturday burned down brass drones and so on i think this is a necessary measure bringing in the army as a way of responding to the crisis. and the british prime minister tells a divided parliament that
a third vote on her brains and deal could now be off the cards this. extra time to get it passed. it's want to call here moscow and you know watching all t. international live from last year with mina to welcome to the program. u.s. special counsel rob it has submitted his long awaited report on alleged russian involvement in the twenty sixteen u.s. presidential election the confidential document was handed to the justice department which says miller has not recommended any new indictments from new york with the latest that kind of more. report has been submitted the final report from bob mohler the special counsel appointed 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 but there's 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 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 are compromised by foreign powers 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 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. and the us presidential hopeful for the libertarian party says the entire investigation has been a waste of time. what we've seen so far has been basically a joke this whole thing was supposed to find a russia russian colu sion and so far all the indictments all the guilty pleas that 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 circus is helping to energize the democratic base helping them to say look trump is really bad for these reasons. and soldiers will be allowed to open fire during yellow vests protests if lives and put in danger by rioters that's according to an army general speaking ahead of a nineteenth consecutive weekend of nationwide demonstrations on saturday last weekend the capsule paris so chaotic scenes. it.
was actually. thank you. thousands of soldiers will be deployed outside french government buildings ati's medina collection of reports from paris. another week and other protests but this time opening fire at crowds is apparently an option seeing you do so you order the soldiers a strictly set out extremely precise they have different modes of action to face or threats you could go as far as opening fire if they're all someone else's life is a threat this saturday over five thousand armed soldiers will be in the streets parisians are divided over the prospect with some calling it catastrophic i think
this is an extreme measure obviously this will not solve everything but at least it will help to avoid further destruction and i don't know i don't think anything good will come of the government's decision to use their army but if he's off asked for what he did last saturday he burned down restaurants and so on i think this is a necessary measure so. it's not the army's mission that shows the failure of the government and the failure of our petition is. that i think if the army opens fire it will prove that crisis management was not sufficient i think that bringing the army as a way of responding to the crisis but it's not a solution to the problem politicians from across the political spectrum have reacted with anger to this latest measure it's a serious mistake imagine them standing in front of the national assembly or elysee palace and horse descend on them what happens to them will they be fired on will people be killed in thirty seventeen emanuel mccrone promised to appease friends in
two hundred nineteen he suggests that the military could shoot at demonstrators mechanism is fracturing france and sending it into their b.s. just at first she wants you michael this time you have gone too far mr macro you have to know how not to push the entire country into a settling of schools it's time to return to more proportional methods the whole world would be horrified to learn that here in france we're using the same methods that we condemn when they are used in other countries. and. into putting soldiers on the streets in order to prevent another wave of violence the french president has decided to close several i cannae klug marks including this famous avenue. on saturday anyone protesting here will face a fine to up to one hundred thirty five euros all of these announcements not the result of powerlessness but rather a public order response to this precise reality hold who.
it seems to be going up security on the streets is the only solution to this crisis that i am a crown can see and he is now turning his attention to other challenges today brics it for me is not a technical negotiation it's a political lesson before anything else we have to acknowledge that china has been playing on our divisions and i believe that when anyone brings their domestic problems or divisions to the european council it is waste of time and i don't have time to waste. the nineteenth weekend of protests just now here at the french capital is praised for a fresh outpouring of anger and the protesters have adopted the slogan the war has
been declared. a petition calling for brakes it to be cancelled has now reached over four million signatures since wednesday setting a record for the parliament website it comes amid increasing uncertainty over the future of the u.k.'s divorce from the e.u. on thursday british prime minister theresa may want to negotiate an extension to the withdrawal eat as if we are to a two week delay until may the twenty second parliament twice to try to deal if knowledge she'll have only until a few. the twelfth to propose a new plan however the prime minister has now said a fresh vote might not take place next week as expected throwing it into even the disarray following all the twists and turns of this all that is political. remember that simpsons episode where bart keeps touching the electrified cupcake.
it all looks a bit like to resume a's attempts to get her breath as it deals through parliament the woman tasked with leading the country at its grave us towers since world war two which hasn't got many people up to defend her it's just going oh no no no no no she is the roadblock to this house reaching majority when will she develop and stand down to do was. to disaster we reach. britain's departure from the e.u. is likely to be delayed and the wheels off boiling off the brags that bus but if 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 brags that charlie. even donald trump has had a dig i'm surprised the hell believe it's all gone voices of support all right. i don't always agree with her but i know her to be a woman of coverage i also feel sorry for her because we have actually given her an impossible task for critics though there's no excusing mase bungled bragg's it with public anger over brags that running high laughing at the prime minister has become a national pastime. come with me and together let's see.
what's. on the planes. and everything that. the. government. and who can forget the best one liner she's ever delivered bricks it means bricks it years from now to reason may is likely to be seen as the braggs it prime minister that her legacy depends on it how message to the people of britain is that she is trying her hardest to 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 schools our national health service knife crime. you want this stage of the bricks it process to be over and done with i agree i am on your side she might be forgiven for wondering if there is anyone left on her as a political commentator says teresa mayes approach to bragg's it is a failure. she is trying her best to to deliver on the referendum result but she's dead wrong in the way of doing it the withdrawal agreement and the backstop means that unless the irish agree with our trade agreements we end up being ruled by brussels in perpetuity that can't make any sense for a sensible democratic western nation so to reason may may well be doing her best
and she's she's fighting a pall of it that desperately wants to remain in the european union what nobody is thinking about is what the ordinary voters want and people want to leave the european union that's what the majority want you know so we consulted parliament we consulted the government we consulted the european union and they've all got their views well actually it's time to think about what the public wants really what the public wants is not to extend article fifty and it's not to have any sort withdrawal agreement it's a lever become a fully independent nation at eleven o'clock twelve o'clock your time next friday. a canadian opposition lawmaker has last time to the prime minister calling him a fake minister in a fiery parliamentary session shall rempel accuse justin trudeau of silencing powerful women in an ongoing corruption scandal. the use of the term feminists they all ask one more time if this prime minister started to stand and
that's why she was modeling the former attorney general. the former attorney general who the lawmaker just mentioned is one of four top officials to resigned in a bribery case those shaken the canadian government jody wilson raybold says she was pressured by trudeau to drop an investigation into canadian engineering giant s. and c. level in the company is also one of the world's largest construction firms in twenty fifteen s.n.c. lovelorn was charged with bribery and fraud in libya it allegedly paid ninety eight million dollars to gadhafi era officials to secure lucrative contracts including the world's biggest irrigation project. in the wake of the scandal trudeau's approval ratings have slumped from forty one percent in january down to thirty three percent this month amid widespread calls for his resignation the canadian prime minister has denied any wrongdoing insisting he was safeguarding the interests of voters. i and my staff always acted appropriately and
professionally we of course had discussions about the potential loss of nine thousand jobs in communities across the country we spoke to canadian journalist lauren sutton who says just in today's feminism times have been used to school political points. is not about holding true to one's values it is not about actually having a code of ethics it is about winning elections you know government has made it such a priority they have used accusations of sexism they have used the term feminist to prop up their party so much that other conservatives are almost forced to bring this up in the conversation because they've made it 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 it and 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 this will certainly make it a closer election than i initially thought and i think the conservatives could have a chance at taking things if trudeau continues down this road of scandal after scandal after the break we'll have more of the latest news including donald trump revoking sanctions on north korea see in just a minute. you know world big partisan movie lot and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door on the 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 we're watching closely watching the hawks. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confrontation let it be an arms race in this spirit dramatic development the only. exist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time time to sit down and talk. welcome back to the program be impartiality of u.k. immigration officials has been called into question after it was revealed that they
used bible quotes to reject an iranian asylum seeker in the twenty six states he will pursue your enemies and they will fall by the sword before the book of revelation is filled with imagery of revenge destruction death and violence these examples are inconsistent with your claim that you convert to christianity after discovering it is a peaceful religion. the church of england was left and impressed say it was concerned that an asylum seekers fate might be desired by a misunderstanding of sacred texts the home office says the rejection letter was an anomaly not in line with its general policies and that it will work on training at staff the latest figures show that asylum applications in the u.k. we told most thirty thousand and twenty eight hundred sixty seven percent applicants are rejected first time around we spoke with the chairman of an immigration consultancy firm he things that the home office is looking for excuses
to turn down refugees it is surprising that the home office should behave the way bar to you know unfortunately in some respects it's not surprising because they are quite unreasonable around help for. a looking for excuses to turn down a side in cases even cases which many people would consider to be quite genuine so you know the unfortunate there we are the home office. quite inventive in a way and come up with you know a whole range of reasons to fuse asylum you know which can be completely unjustified you know unfortunately governments want to have been tough on immigration and the home office are under pressure to be nasty are helpful 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 lost
the unhelpful. u.s. president has ordered his treasury to cancel additional sanctions against north korea in ansley decision over twitter earlier though u.s. national security advisor john bolton noted the importance of the measures against north korea transposition comes after the withdrawal of north korean staff from the into korean and office. north korea informed us this morning that it would pull out its staff from the liaison office on instructions from a superior authority and it withdrew its staff the north said it doesn't mind the south remaining in the office and that it will not a fight on further practical matters in the future our government finds the north decision regrettable and it is hoped that the north returns its staff to the liaison office for normal operation as it was agreed between the two countries. into korean liaison office was opened in september twenty eighth as
a sign of warming ties between seoul and pyongyang it facilitates regular communications on various issues and functions as a de facto embassy it's not clear if the withdrawal of the north korean staff was connected to the threat of further sanctions but asia analysts are up and go says chance decision to cancel additional restrictions is a response to the withdrawal. will then i think a couple of weeks we will hear back from the north korean side as to how they would like to proceed for the the ball really resides on the north korean side on how they will respond after hanoi and i think donald trump is going a little way out a little out of his way to ensure that he doesn't mess things up u.s. north korea talks sayat of very delicate fears are the sport of time north korea essentially has to get back to the u.s. how it wants to go forward and donald trump doesn't want to do that in a negative direction by imposing a new whole set of sanctions and that's why he's kind of trying to ensure that it
least i believe there to leader level there is good communication and a good relationship because he believes north korea is a top down society and of kim jong un can take that strategic decision which he needs to make it will unlock the door to of very positive relationship positive denuclearization related negotiations. social media networking as a graham plans to block anti vaccine hashtags after a backlash against medical misinformation. it's possible work to address health related misinformation on instagram we're looking at ways to minimize recommendations of this continent and accounts the post at the cross instagram the company's decision comes off to america's biggest outbreak of measles in recent years medical data indicates the number of cases grew significantly in twenty eighteen one of the main reasons is thought to be the large number of unvaccinated people will make his own public health advocates have been pushing the country's
largest social media companies to take action against antibiotics and content besides instagram facebook plans to reduce the ranking of groups and pages that spread misinformation about vaccinations you cheap said it's also pulling ads from vaccine videos claiming they violate its policies against harmful or dangerous acts . we discussed the issue with radio host and political commentator dave perkins who things that social media users should have access to all sides of any argument. i am concerned deeply concerned that instagram has put itself in the position of not only rendering expertise on what looks to me like a bed of gold matter but also in the position of judging what people should hear and what they should not hear you know a free country in a free world in a modern world we should all get to hear all the sides of every argument and we should all be allowed to make up our own mind i'm closer to pro-vaccine that anti
but i would very much like to know that nothing is being kept from me while i finish making up my mind instagram's put itself in the position of doing exactly that keeping information from me and if i were a parent with a young child it's information i would be vitally concerned about so yeah that's very troubling. to chile where the brazilian the president's visit prompted violent protests on friday with a violent police resorting to take ass and water cannon. the rally was womanize by anti fascist and gay rights activists basically it's targeted by radicals protesters took to the streets of the chilean capital some shock and setting up and clashing with police officers some chilean politicians have also called compulsive knowledge to be declared a post so nonprofit denouncing is paul right policies. much more

he's the author of super imperialism and his latest book is called and forgive them their debt so. a kind of have a headlines here involving that end of super imperialism he and his book from twenty thirty years ago he wrote about the super imperialism of america using the u.s. dollar and that an arc lobel hedge of money but the global had to is falling apart and that is in the headlines this week when it comes to aviation regulation the united states ain't the hedge amman anymore so we had them easing story last week of after the aftermath of the disaster and ethiopia when ethiopian airlines went down is that ethiopian airlines chose not to give the black box in fact they stated that they did not want to give the black box to american regulators and officials because they did not trust america to give an impartial opinion about what happened to the plane because most people reckon reckon that it's something to
do with a flaw in boeing and of course the americans are the last of all about this i saw an interesting interview with steve mccall bear in tulsa gabbert who is running for president and the stephen colbert was wrecking the case well merit goes the policeman of the world and people of the world looks to america for guidance and america is the shining city on the hill right and you know. she was making the point that maybe you need to revisit this notion and that the a lot of these interferences in these foreign affairs causes a blowback and a lot more problems but this is a great story that shows exactly to the extent that the empire is phone that the rest of the world does doesn't trust the us to review any of this material when it comes to serious stuff like trying to figure out why these planes are blowing going in the wrong direction etc so it's really diminishing the whole role of the us across you know the entire commercial and political spectrum and it was the first time ever in history in modern aviation whereby it was not the f.a.a. .
