3:04 pm
a decrease of popularity form the c.d.u. and their speed to the increase of popularity for the specially in the eastern states of this country while while these attacks are becoming more dominant in politics in germany critics are hoping that this will not turn into a disturbing trend. i got reaction earlier from alternative for germany euro m.p. going are back he blames the coverage given to the f.t. for making it an easy target there's a little doubt there my party is the principal victim of this political violence what's triggered it well it's a combination of relentless media portrayal of our party. as a little aged right wing or perhaps even freshest organization in fact none of our policies would have shocked c.d.u. voters about 50 years ago it's important to bear in mind that germany in many

respects is not the society that it is betrayed as many people are dissatisfied with the extreme consensus politics people are now beginning to realize that despite the fact that mrs merkel is telling them that they've never had it so good living standards for well over 2 thirds of the population have not risen in the last 25 years. it's been a rocky start for some u.s. presidential election campaigns with several runners already stumbling in the 1st hurdle and dropping out but it seems the baby yoda character from a star wars spin off could be quite a successful candidate if it through its name into the 2020 presidential race according to a recent poll baby yoda is outrunning all democratic hopefuls on social media including front runners joe biden and bernie sanders but that's not going to stop those 2 and the many others still up for consideration striving to be called the
3:06 pm
perfect candidate more on that now from what i've gathered if. in this imperfect world of ours the hooli grail is finding something perfect it is of course impossible but goodness there they really try every 4 years in america elections the eternal search for the perfect candidate a smallish chink in there who we are than that our armor is enough to sink him or her and i really mean the smallest chink for example pete booted judge currently ranked 4th in the democrat candidate polls he's a darling a mayor a family guy openly gay and he even has a disabled dog i mean what an angel but then i see he went too far he helped the homeless participated in salvation army charity events
3:07 pm
and that's a christian organization which is sometimes accused of homophobia you know hard core christians and all apparently race issues aren't the only thing. is slow to grasp what is his excuse for not realizing the salvation army is homophobic hard to imagine a more succinct visual metaphor for i will gleefully work for the active destruction of my people if it makes me seem in a yacht or more electable than booted shorter within a seriously antic with salvation army these activists are literally accusing an openly gay man of supporting homophobia just just let it sink in you haven't dropped out of the race yet unlike camelot harris and one of her crimes as a half black half tamil indian woman was that she just wasn't black enough skin pigmentation seems to really really matter for
3:08 pm
a presidential candidate then you. have bernie sanders spent his life trying to power the poor and for his troubles had the d.n.c. election rigged against him last time around but bernie just doesn't get it america doesn't want someone who cares so much for the poor sanders just does not understand that a $15.00 minimum wage will hurt the job market and there's no way we can afford to make education free for everyone and on top of bernie's you know principles and decency he's just ancient. get on how much like former vice president and controller see magnate joe biden e's neck deep in just the we had this stuff begin getting really close and taking the nice sniff of people's hair now embroiled in ukraine gate he got his little boy
3:09 pm
a nice cushy job that pays a standing amounts in ukraine the poorest nation in europe and modern civil war to boot are sure he can remember all that stuff them ages getting the better of him to his memory isn't what it was then we have elizabeth warren who hasn't quite yet figured out who she is in case you missed it she tried to pass a self off as part native american which was an exaggeration by which i mean it was entirely made up bashing. no one it seems is good enough homosexual whole move a black woman who isn't black enough an old man that's obsessed with helping the people that need help biden and his has sniffing and seriously what the hell then again perhaps people wouldn't need pics so much if you know they had something else
3:10 pm
to talk about if these people had a plan beyond beating trump a clear plan for america and americans but hey maybe not i mean seriously and. living stuff. as u.s. presidential hopefuls look to divide and conquer the polls ahead of the 2020 election a public policy survey for failed insight into how americans view division in society or the 90 percent of people who responded to the poll said the division should be a key policy issue for the presidential candidates on the campaign trail describing it as a huge problem staggering made any one in 5 americans thought that the issue wasn't a big problem going into the vote in 2020 who had a fair a from the reactionary times dot com believes that the democrats are exacerbating tensions in us society. i think that there is a real detachment from reality with this party because you know i think today
3:11 pm
really you hate everything that you know the the right stand for at this point i've never seen in my life and i mean i'm only 42 years old but i don't remember a time where you know in america you know there was quite a division based on party lines i mean i remember when republicans and democrats got along a lot better than they do now and on the parties were so different and in some ways there was a lot of overlap i do a lot of the policy issues now it seems that the left has gone for it into you know the socialism direction while the right is fighting for limited government limited taxation and in all those important things that the country was supposedly built on i mean i think that you know maybe if the democrats can produce some so-called blue dogs you know some of you know people that are a reasonable moderate democrats maybe they do a lot better. u.s. authorities are now reportedly investigating friday's shooting at a naval base in florida for possible terror related motives the attack left 3

3:14 pm
the unarmed african-american teenager trayvon martin while patrolling in his neighborhood he then shot him dead family of trayvon martin has always maintained that this was a case of murder but george zimmerman's claim of self-defense got him a verdict of not guilty in court but now george zimmerman is going back to court he's going to sue the martin family as well as the prosecutors claiming they did irreparable psychological damage to him because of their arrest charges prosecution and federal investigation zimmerman lives in constant fear of physical harm due to regular death threats which often are expressed in rap music as well as online social media commentary this move has got the black community theorists many calling zimmerman's move obnoxious this is why we will never be silent and continue to fight fully variation in justice. george zimmerman has punched through the bottom and sunk lower than scum i don't care how specific the allegations are he

visionaries. improving our lives every day. the design of today's about comfort and function and today my guest is one of the most prolific designers iconic designers of our time. artists do all they are hi great to have you with us today you look wonderful thank you so do you agree moscow the day of the year old pink and serious side of the ray of sunshine well in the winter moscow gets a bit gray but you know most cities around the world get quite great so then they have you talking with. us all right so i want to start over with one of your motos which is you should grasp the luxury of freedom. instead of luxury of the physical
3:27 pm
world but then i know that you are super famous and super in demand and you do all kinds of designs for a high end 5 star hotels. where does that fit what i think that's a luxury and freedom to call you know you made a mistake there most of the hotels i do are 2 star 3 star and more democratic in fact i did a hotel i don't know about 7 years ago in germany and it was 2 star so when you go and stay for get the stars when you go stay with 39 you're always certain you're at the stay and the host tell basically almost by private you know room something super designed a very high design very comfortable casual experience full hotel is beautiful. and i con it to prove to the world that it's not about money it's a lot of developers and people think that design means high budget just for example for many years we always saw design as an elite subject or
3:28 pm
a high art but it's actually not a high art at all design is should be like industrialization tatas for the mass market it's for accessibility so wants to do stuff that you do if it's not for hotels but like designer pieces how much would it cost because yes you're absolutely right anything that is a design or piece of tornadoes or anything is like having a piece of art you know the latest thing you cannot be democratic and for everybody but that's changed now look at look at a good comparison of what's going on. now in the design world is what's already happened in the fashion world the very high in. fashion brands luxury brands are a lot of them are having trouble. meaning financial trouble but also just trouble in the sense of vision a lot of them don't really even know where to go anymore and there was a time when if you went back 3040 years that every fashion house had a very different sensibility vision style right so it was and they took ownership
3:29 pm

3:30 pm
beautiful contemporary couch could be 110th the price of the luxury couch so it's more accessible and i think this is a beautiful thing i've always been a big believer in this notion of i call it design ocracy democratic design where we all can have a better life. all of this that it's for a majority and was taught is this is the digital age i read the other day that there's. a many one and a half 1000000000 smartphones in the world. i have a whole block prepared for the digital age i just want to talk a little bit about the concept and the design so talked a little bit more about the luxury of freedom and the luxury of the physical world what is a luxury of freedom well you know when in history in our analog 100000 years of humanity we defined luxury through materiality so precious stones or precious materials for certain crossman ship these sorts of things so 40
