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 sheets of the capital and impose fines for those who decide to violate those new measures and seeing you do this you would have the soldiers of 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 we spoke to some people living here and it seems fairly easy ansel that divided over such measure. 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 armies but if you ask for what they did last saturday. it's not the

army's mission shows the failure of the government and the failure of our petition . in 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 a but of the movement continues. the syrian democratic forces have declared a final victory over islamic state to capturing the terrorist groups last pockets of resistance this really are the non-medical what. the macleod's on behalf 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 goose has been the main hot spot for the s.d.f. a several weeks the final assault was delayed due to thousands of civilians still

remained in isis last stronghold. isis 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. 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 a cattle in this as a political when the political message that 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 who was ninety percent ninety two percent the caliphate in syria.
5:05 pm
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 stablished the 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 down for along with the rebels there is a strategic it is a pain for the syrian government it's. basic. be a thorn in their side nevertheless there is a lot of united states allies on the ground syrian kurds for example who they've
5:06 pm
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 trumpet xox the trumpets jump that that is said that you know declared final victory of isis they've been destroyed here they're all my. it's all you know of my achievement but no they aren't the shore they're hiding out there they're still in those tunnels underground they're hiding among among civilian populations make no mistake diet 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 they're still as fanatically loyal to isis as they were when it all began. central london are seeing one of its biggest protests in recent history organizers of an anti breaks it march say more than a million people took to the streets calling for a second referendum comes amid increasing uncertainty over the u.k.'s divorce from the e.u. on thursday e.u. leaders agreed to postpone the country's withdrawal deadline but only by a few weeks the prime minister's reason may there will now try to get the british parliament to approve her deal despite it having being rejected twice already but she's now warning that vote might not even take place next week is expected.
5:08 pm
remember that simpsons episode where bart keeps touching the electrified cupcake. it all looks a bit like terrorism a's attempt to get her bread as it deals through parliament the woman tasked with leading the country at its greatest hour since world war two hasn't got many people doing 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 a backbone and stand down to do was take this mission to disaster we wreak. britain's departure from the e.u. is likely to be delayed and the wheels of 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
5:09 pm
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 to dig i'm surprised the hell 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 sorrier for 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
5:10 pm
become a national pastime. come with me and together let's see. what's. playing. and everything like that. and who can forget her famous touch 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 at 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 arcane procedural rounds
5:11 pm
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 process to be over and done with i agree on anyone left on a. political consultant to close member are to 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 will only continue i think the sentiment right now in parliament is that. go through under very pressured measures which means peace in parliament won't vote with what they believe is to be the best way
5:12 pm
for forward but war do it because the time pressures are so tight which almost holds parliament to run saying this is the only deal we have a you'd better put it through because you're certainties are too big and too widespread to even imagine. the long awaited report into alleged russian collusion in the twenty sixteen us presidential document was handed to the justice department that says miller has not recommended any new indictments details it's going to be open. 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
5:13 pm
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 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
5:14 pm
security whether the president and anybody around him a 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 what is made public from that report after the u.s. attorney general makes that decision. arvin for us presidential hopeful for the libertarian party says that the democrats benefit 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 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 un cover 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 rush inclusion
5:15 pm
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 like look trump is really bad for these reasons . now we are evacuating thirteen hundred passengers from a luxury cruise liner one passenger filmed the moment the ship began to. go into passengers windows were smashed in water came in at least eight people were injured the rescue boats and four helicopters were called in after the viking sky lost power and started drifting towards land rescue services the ship has now been safely and good on the remaining passengers will be taken to shore. so if.
5:16 pm
what politicians do something. they put themselves on the line. to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. for some help wanted. to go right to be close this is like the full story of the morning can't be good.
5:17 pm
i'm interested always in the logs. six. created opposition lawmaker has lashed out at the prime minister calling him a fake feminist in a foreign policy entry session michelle rumpole accused just in pseudo silencing powerful women in an ongoing corruption scandal. the use of the term them in a zero three hours one more time if this kind minister is such a menace why she was mumbling to former attorney terry the former attorney general who the lawmaker mentioned there was one of the first to blow the whistle on a bribery case that shaken the canadian government to its core jody wilson raybold
5:18 pm
says that she was pressured by trudeau to drop an investigation into the canadian engineering giant as sea level in like companies one of the world's largest construction firms that allegedly paid ninety eight million dollars to get deaf ear officials to secure lucrative contracts including the world's biggest irrigation project well he's now accused of being a fake feminist trudeau had earlier heaped praise on to those who defended women's rights and proudly declared that that's exactly what he does the 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 is the love that's going to change the future of mankind so we'd like you to look what we're going to say people are going to not necessarily mankind.
5:19 pm
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 forced to bring this up in the conversation because they have made it such an
5:20 pm
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 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. u.k. immigration officials are facing questions after it was revealed they use 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 diatribe being used to justify refusal of asylum it's not the role of the home
5:21 pm
office to play theologica it is very hard to tell 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 when the asylum seeker who has not been identified filed the claim in two thousand and sixteen in it he said that he had converted from islam to christianity because he believed it to be a peaceful religion but immigration officials used quotes from the bible in a bid to disprove that claim in the vertical 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 that you converted to christianity after discovering it is a peaceful religion or the home office says the rejection letter was
5:22 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 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. 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. 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 you know unfortunately governments want to have been tough on immigration and the home office are under pressure to be nasty are
5:23 pm
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 nasty unhelpful. investigators are flown to a remote part of russia's ural mountains in a bid to finally solve a six decade long mystery back in one thousand fifty eight a group of nine hikers were found dead one had their tongue and eyes missing over the years there been there is aim to reconstruct the incident with their findings expected to be released later this year. and i'll be right up to date to join me for more than half. join me every thursday on the alex salmond show and i'll be speaking to guest of the world of politics small business i'm show business i'll see that.
5:24 pm
during the great depression which are old enough to remember there was and most of my family were unemployed working class there wasn't it was bed you know much worse objective listen today but there was an expectation that things are 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 at tax solidarity engineer elections manufacture consent and other principles according to no on chomsky one set of rules for the rich opposite set rules for poor. that's what happens when you put her into the hands of a narrow sector of will switch will is dedicated to increasing power for itself
5:25 pm
just as you'd expect one of the most influential intellectuals of our time speaks about the modern civilization of america. with coal make its manufacture consent instead of public wealth. when the ruling classes protect themselves. with the financial merry go round lifts only the one percent. we can all middle of the room six. million real new.
5:26 pm
i'll go with the. oh power to the people. believe look forward to the people. who look at. the good day when you step out of the stores you must realize who you are fighting oh no oh who gets hundred oh great fears oh oh pressure. you know no
5:27 pm
front. great. aren't you the. only people we have the right you guns we remain just so that people understand you know the small window what's out there in the world. but you're not going to focus and walk it's the most ubiquitous gun out there most police departments use it but whatever gun you want to learn how to use doors open will teach whatever you want. to tell my teachers you go get paid to follow our international laws you will be carrying five when you learn because you will get paid a little while left up to the paycheck that you think or see you are you going to squeeze your hand then and make sure you figure stays off the trigger for both danger guns a disposition and then make sure you set your hand and glove both so each one of those open and express this part of the weather and that will go waiting here will
5:28 pm
be just like that with you with if you go straight now you want to clip the gun with the firmness of a good hand shift no more and that's all right so just to from mention. my name is taylor from alma and i will accept a director and sounder yes fairly which is all that works with young adults who've dropped out of schools and are trying to find. high school so they come to us because they want to finish their education age sixteen to twenty one which is the it's that we work with young people are deciding what they want to be doing and they're deciding how to if they want to change if they are if they want to be like their parents not like their neighbors not like some of the they come from very rough communities and this is a chance what this is a time when if they
5:29 pm
a lot of them are making decisions about who they're going to be as adults if you're living in poverty and everyone around you is living in poverty it's hard to understand why you should get up in the morning go to school every day try to find a job and then go to that job every day and do things that are not necessarily fun or interesting and this is not about the students or about the parents even but there's a lot of history of people being incarcerated if there ever has been and still is a lot of drug abuse in philadelphia and i think if you live in poverty and without hope it's very hard to dig yourself out of that it's very hard to do the things.
