withdrawal from the. this is r.t. international. and nineteenth weekend of yellow vests rallies has come to an end cross the country in france although this time the authorities had banned marches in certain areas including key parts of the capital in nice an elderly woman was said to be seriously injured after she fell when police tried to clear protesters from a central square that they'd been banned from gathering on and she reportedly had her head on the ground and police were quick to give medical help from paris where the protests were more peaceful here's our correspondent medina cochon of. several thousand people marched across the city center and this sound on the steps of those famous zach recurrent cathedral which is located right in the north of the city
4:02 pm
there shouting slogans many brought flags representing different unions that they came from they also brought political posters but overall this demonstration seems to be rather peaceful paris is beefed up with the security at the moment as the french government decided to close several iconic landmarks that used to be the meeting point for many protesters here and also the french government decided to deploy armed soldiers in this streets of the capital and impose fines for those who decide to violate those new measures i'm seeing you this you would have 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 or someone else's life is a threat we spoke to some people living here and it seems very easy as hell that divided over such measure. i think this is an extreme measure obviously this will
4:03 pm
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 armies but if you ask for what they did last saturday they've burned down restaurants and so on i think this is a necessary measure. it's not the are missed mission shows the failure of the government and the failure of our petition. i think if the army opens fire it will prove that crisis management was not sufficient so i think that bringing the army as a way of responding to the crisis but it's not a solution to the problem yellow vests protests continue for the nineteenth weekend but this saturday it's a different location it is less a violent a but of the movement continues. the syrian democratic forces have declared a final victory over islamic state after capturing the terrorist groups last pockets of resistance. yeah then i'm going to. the mcleod on behalf
4:04 pm
of the syrian democratic forces and all the soldiers and allies that fought with us in the same trenches today we announced the defeat of the so-called islamic state and the end of its ground control in its last pocket in the buy goods region the village of beit goose has been the main hot spot for the s.t.'s for several weeks the final assault was delayed due to thousands of civilians who still remained in our last stronghold earlier artie's rag as they have joined my colleague andrew farmer to discuss the issue. the us is global it's in afghanistan it's growing it's in iraq it's in africa it is essentially international what has happened is that it has suffered a defeat they've taken guus but isis is still there in the countryside there in the desert to say that isis has been defeated is that i would say in outright lie in many experts agree they're out there and you know they're like accounts it
4:05 pm
will take a long time to get rid of them nevertheless washington is selling this as a political win the political message the big isis on klav has been destroyed and 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 where there's there's a few hundred. foot is a border crossing between syria and iraq the united states was quick to jump there
4:06 pm
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 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 syrian 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. 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
4:07 pm
syria to ensure this enduring defeat but as for the final victory again trump. trump has jumped at that he said that you know declared final victory of isis they've been destroyed here it's all my. it's all you know of my achievement but no they aren't the sure they're hiding out they're still in those tunnels underground they're hiding among among civilian populations make no mistake is preserving their force they've made calculated decisions to preserve what's left of their dwindling personnel and capabilities by taking their chances in camps for internally displaced persons and going to ground in remote areas they waiting for the right time to reemerge many of them as zealots there still is fanatically loyal to isis as they were when it all began. organizers of an anti brag said march of claiming

4:09 pm
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 a backbone and stand down to do was this mission to disaster weak weak weak britain's departure from the e.u. is likely to be delayed the wheels off or laying off the brags that bus but if you think about it the 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
4:10 pm
car carrying the poisoned brake that challenge. even donald trump has had to dig i'm surprised to help there 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 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 seize the day. and the evening what's. the.
4:11 pm
and everything like that. and you can forget they messed catch phrase 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 ets her 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's schools our national health service knife crime. you want this stage of the bricks 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.
4:12 pm
list when morality director of the research consultant organization pangea why explain why every step in the briggs it 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 board as to what the concept of what the process actually would mean and we start off in a place with such uncertainty there's no surprise us to the situation room now so are less the identity of briggs it is made clear be disruptions 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
4:13 pm
war 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 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 muller a confidential document was handed to the justice department which says that miller has not recommended any new indictments with details is kill him or. report has been submitted the final report from bob mohler 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
4:14 pm
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 turned up any big indictments related to russia collusion it's been two years since 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 else public was told that some kind of bombshell or groundbreaking revelation was about to be revealed but it seems that
4:15 pm
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. for a u.s. presidential hopeful for the libertarians says that the democrats spend if it 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 colu zhen 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 the whole thing though is 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 think there's anything to be found but because they know that this trial this kind of circ is is helping to energize the
4:16 pm
democratic base helping them to say look trump is really bad for these reasons still to come canadian prime minister just in trudeau is being challenged over his feminism more on that after the break. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confrontation let it be an arms race. theory dramatic development that only. exists i don't see that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down and talk. you know world big part of the lot and it's time. to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than
4:17 pm
shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the troops the time is now watching closely watching the hawks. back a canadian opposition lawmaker has lashed out at the country's prime minister calling him a fake feminist and a fiery parliamentary session accused just in trudeau of silencing powerful women in an ongoing corruption scandal the use of the term them in this year of great powers one more time if this time minister such a thing and that's why you see the former attorney the former attorney general the
4:18 pm
lawmaker mentioned was one of the first to blow the whistle on a bribery case that has shaken the canadian government to its core jodi wilson raybold says that she was pressured by trudeau to drop an. geisha into canadian engineering giant s. and c. level him now that company's one of the world's largest construction firms allegedly paid ninety eight million dollars to gadhafi era officials to secure lucrative contracts including the world's biggest the regulation project well he's now accused of being a fake feminist earlier heaped praise on to those who defended women's rights and proudly declared that's exactly what he does other critics claim he was only 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
4:19 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. for. there's lots of things you can do for your mentor feminist as a man but here's a simple one interim leader. 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
4:20 pm
forced to bring this up in the conversation because they have 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 if you're going to use that as a weapon well then be prepared for that to be used as a weapon against you to root out 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 things continues down this road of scandal after scandal. u.k. immigration officials are facing questions after it was revealed that they used bible quote 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
4:21 pm
seen a lot over the years but even i was genuinely shocked to read this unbelievably offensive 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 believe 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 when the asylum seeker who has not been identified filed that claim in two thousand and six theme in it he said that he had converted from islam to christianity because he considered it a peaceful religion but immigration officials use quotes from the bible in a bid to disprove that claim. in the 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
4:22 pm
inconsistent with your claim the converted to christianity after discovering it is a peaceful religion. or the home office says that that rejection letter was a one off not in line with general policies adding that it will work on more training for staff we spoke with a chairman of an immigration consultancy firm who thinks that the home office is simply 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 quite unreasonable around help for. are 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 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
4:23 pm
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 fault for encouraging officials to be nasty unhelpful. investigators have flown to a remote part of russia's ural mountains in a bid to finally solve a six decade long mystery back in one hundred fifty eight a group of nine were found dead on their tongue denies missing over the years theories of range from a yeti attack to a new clearly even aliens investigators aim to reconstruct the incident with their findings expected to be released later this year. brings you right up to date for this news hour to join me in just over half an hour's time for the latest news headlines and more in our top story.
4:24 pm
after the previous stage of my career was over everyone wondered what i was going to do next the ball different clubs on one hand it is logical to sit in the home field where everything is familiar on the other i wanted a new challenge and a fresh perspective so i'm used to surprising people and i saw one on t.v. . i'm going to talk about football not the or else you can think i was going to go. by the way ways and such like here.
4:25 pm
because so much going on the phone lines smoke i don't like clinton said a million mark the muslim on muslim forum for influence in november unless some concepts get a. lot of fun but ultimately they just let me get a little. she was you make the. most out of your stream. jungle but from the sun on my book you go google british course there's enough of them around. i mean the guys who are dead and of course i don't want any of the government. of. egypt. to.
4:26 pm
join me every thursday on the alex salmond show and i'll be speaking to guest of the world of politics sport there's no. i'm show business i'll see that. during the great depression which i'm old enough to remember there was most of my family were employed. there wasn't it was bed you know much worse objective listen to day but there was an expectation of the things were going to get better. there was a real sense of hopefulness there isn't today today's america was shaped by the turn principles of concentration of wealth and power. reduced democracy attack solo doubt engineer elections manufacture consent and other principles according to no on tone scale one set of rules for the rich opposite.
4:27 pm
that's what happens when you put her into the hands of a narrow sector of will which will is dedicated to increasing power for itself just as you'd expect one of the most influential intellectuals of our time speaks about the modern civilization of america. max kaiser this is the kaiser report baringo bro hahaha stacey what's erin go bragh that's like means a happy leprechaun day an irish gaelic or something but i see it on many of the
4:28 pm
hats during the st paddy's day parade in new york there must mean something well i'm sure pronouncing merong and many comments on the you tube will tell us so but nevertheless you know in the second half we're talking to dr michael hudson 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 the 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 money but the global had 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
4:29 pm
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 fall in boeing and of course the americans are the last to know about this i saw an interesting interview with steven kull 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 the 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 and these foreign affairs causes of blowback and a lot more problems but this is a great story that shows exactly to the extent that the empire has flown 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 u.s.
4:30 pm
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. that led the f.a.a. the federal aviation authority in america it was the one that will ground an air craft that will say no the air bus something something cannot fly here or.
