washington is now targeting longtime allies in europe its renewed threats to slap tariffs on the blocks trade in response to the move to impose a digital tax on u.s. tech giants shotted dubinsky breaks it down for us. not being is a beethoven for me idea is give a little here get a lot there for global companies it's often a direct line to the heart of power for generations boozy lunches were once the fashion but now it seems did still giants more interested in offering up a cup of joe as it plans to introduce a digital tax take for it seems that the big 4 that google amazon facebook and apple are trying their best to cozy up to. i don't think it's a good idea to talk about politics or policy with a glass of wine in your hand and excellent food offered by a person who has clear interests to represent and then there is a little less transparent lobby because there are members of industry associations
9:14 am
well they have consultants working for them so you talk to people and you don't realize if they are representing the interests of google or facebook or silicon valley because the names are different visa lobbyists seem to have some very deep pockets according to transparency international in 2019 google spent some 8000000 euros trying to get into brussels good graces while the lobbying budgets of the big 4 have. since 2014 so why is this new digital tax regime causing them such a headache well until recently most digital giants pay their tax bill in the country where they're registered but as they've grown questions are being asked as to why they were paying tax income derived in individual countries their fronts led the charge by imposing the so-called gaffa tax causing the trumpet ministration to go into a tailspin. but the american companies are one of the

9:16 am
austria and spain italy the united kingdom all the other countries across the globe that will implement digital tax we're going to order global trade which is in nobody's interest and the result is not worth the effort it's taken them a while but it does appear that all e.u. countries are now on the same page all in agreement that they should be taxing digital joints which means if no agreement is made globally in the next few months starting with talks in paris next week the us and e.u. the old allies could find themselves going head to head. the ati paris well you can almost professor steve keen believes america's push for its own national interests is having a detrimental effect on me everyone else. since trump is in charge he'll do whatever he sees as being a win situation for america and a loss for the rest of the world i think in the case of the because these companies

9:21 am
prosecution in a high profile corruption case the same one that landed both scenarios main rival lula da silva in jail preventing him from running for another presidential term the federal judge denied everything and even went on to head the justice ministry as for the journalist to shed light on the scandal he found himself under investigation even though the federal police and the supreme court told the administration to drop the case in our government president bush in our own multiple members of his government simply don't believe in a free press we don't believe in prosper they don't even believe in democracy they've repeatedly and explicitly praised the military dictatorship that ruled the country until they needed 5 years disappear your form of government and this is all about ushering in that level of repression whistleblowers and watchdog organizations are calling the situation a blatant attack on journalistic freedom absolute resolute this is unbelievably could retaliation for revealing the extreme corruption at the highest levels of
9:22 am
both scenarios administration and the next threat to investigative journalism in brazil in an outrageous violation of press freedom the brazilian government has ignored a supreme court order in charge journalist glenn greenwald with cyber crimes for the intercepts investigative series on widespread corruption in brazil. well the government must immediately condemned this outrageous assault on the freedom of the press and recognize that its attacks on press freedoms at home have consequences for american journalists doing their jobs abroad leg langrune world the prosecution of glenn greenwald is once again putting the spotlight on the current administration is a legit corrupt dealings it's no wonder valsin are on has no love for journalists i don't believe glenn went over the line he didn't go in there and actually acted himself he tried to protect your identity maybe he suggested they delete a file that's not how this is exactly what they're charged julian assange or chelsea manning had legal access to materials all that julian did was to help or
9:23 am
hide her identity by trying to log in under an administrative may not her own name and the year we see glenn greenwald worked with people who got these messages from what's up or what's not like system and big revealed unbelievable corruption a collusion between the judge and the prosecutors in a case against the lula da silva this is just a little journalistic behavior and i what's happened to glenn is a worldwide really crackdown on free press that isn't in a controlled corporate media this is got to stop this is an important case and i hope that glenn gets free and stays in brazil gives and has to do the job he's been doing the u.n. actually have called for an investigation into an alleged mobile phone hacking thought involving the wild richest man after a friend's ex implicated the saudi crown prince they're not of his so i wasn't chief jeff bezos telephone showed to his device was infiltrated from a number used by mohamed insalata through
9:24 am
a private message bezos the washington post out there where dissident john walk before being killed at the saudi embassy in total and 20 r.t. is capable has the details. you want to fish holes are calling for an investigation into allegations that the phone of jeff bezos the world's richest man was hacked and who is the top suspect the kingdom of saudi arabia this is from the u.n. report the alleged hacking of mr bases his phone m those of others demands immediate investigation by the u.s. and other relevant authorities including investigation of the continuous munty a direct and personal involvement of the crown prince in efforts to target perceived opponents the allegation is that the messenger application known as whatsapp was used to violate the privacy of the billionaire business owner in the united states and furthermore that the number used was apparently a number that has actually been used by mohamed bin solomon himself what's
9:25 am
interesting here is that not only is jeff bezos the owner of amazon he's also the owner of the washington post that's the newspaper that employed to malta shoji and apparently that is what the crown prince was after the information we have received suggests the possible involvement of the crown prince in surveillance of mr bezos in an effort to influence if not silence the washington post reporting in saudi arabia these allegations are relevant as well to ongoing evaluation of claims about the crown prince's involvement in the 20000 murder of saudi and washington post june this jamal khashoggi to malta shoji went into the saudi embassy in istanbul 'd and never returned he was literally hacked to pieces in october 28 teams and many allege that it was the crown prince himself who ordered the killing now after the killing of jamal khashoggi outrage swept the planet the united states included however the trump administration gave
9:26 am
a response but it was slow we have identified at least some of the individuals responsible including those in the intelligence services the royal court the foreign ministry and other saudi ministries who we suspect to have been involved in mr to show us death. i don't like stopping massive amounts of money that's being poured into our country spending $110000000000.00 on military equipment and or things that create. like of theirs for this country the kingdom of saudi arabia purchases huge amounts of u.s. weapons and supplies us oil giants with huge amounts of crude the multi-billion dollar relationship seems to take priority over the war in yemen human rights and other concerns riyadh denies any wrongdoing however the united nations once the usa to conduct its own investigation to get to the bottom of what actually happened however if the killing of jamal khashoggi has shown us anything it's that the
9:27 am
relationship with the monarchy is worth more than any allegations caleb mop and r.t. new york. well former u.s. diplomat says it's going to take more than a killing and a phone hack to pull they's us out when ations i don't think anything is going to break anything of the foreseeable on the horizon is going to break these close ties with saudi arabia. you know people had a little momentary loss about his killing because after all he was part of the nobility he was were washing clothes he was involved with the cia so this was a terrible terrible thing just like however they don't they couldn't care less that saudi arabia is slaughtering people in yemen and in fact we're helping them do it and that means up winning america's interests 1st but putting israel's in saudis the saudi arabian interest 1st in the middle east and so we have the same network of power and client states and i think it's just business as usual in saudi pedal an awful lot of influence along
9:28 am
a lot of money in washington all round and round the united states sort of reminds me of why. obama was caught hacking angela merkel's cell phone after 2 years. and fine for this hour the president of the philippines has exclusively of a failed he will decline the united states invitation to attend the southeast asian nation summit and mots well gee go to tattoo was speaking to senior correspondent caused to have the full interview will be on our team this friday but for now here's a sneak preview i just received. the invitation for the world through the united states i'm going to leave this. have been in the distance i was invited by obama and the. when you go. did you see one of the many friends. you have but you know one time in our.
9:29 am
being. good at this. no he said of what he had. to say it's me. to. be united nations. it said in the. school so they got. from me for now i'll get back to tide you over until then. they put themselves on the line they did accept the reject. so when you want to be
9:30 am
president and you. want. to go right to the press this is what the 3 of them will be good. interested in the lawyers in the. operations understand that a cost of doing business is buying and building support in washington d.c. and that includes staffing up with former members of congress put them on your payroll you want to hire a chief of staff from a powerful senator or a committee. member get their chief of staff put them on your payroll as a lobbyist this is what washington does partisan basis in fact i think it's the only point of true bipartisanship in d.c. is corporate influence over government.
