china and russia are buying gold as i told you mine gold is like us we don't think he's right to pay you know no one lives in a fiancee house to house is blown away by the huffing and puffing of the big bad feel wolf and then taking over to you got countries like india there like one step in one step back a second household sector has all the gold their government asked exactly and then the big bad feel will often pop in the deep of the prosecution but what the government has blown away then you've got the countries like china and russia that have said rouse may have twenty four karat gold bullion on and the big that feel wolf off the cuff and it didn't belong there elsewhere.
but if you join us today for us the democrats are in hot water off the secretly recorded odio reveal the party's leadership trying to pressure a candidate for a u.s. house seat in colorado to drop out of the race he would like me to get out of the race. i know your fundraising. you guys are someone money. time democratic smaller. someone some more and then try to read the primary.

a very risky tactic because it risks the danger is the wind up needing its base of support which will either stay at home or vote for green candidates or others who are challenging the democrats from the left so they're trying to try to walk a very thin line and i don't think they'll be they'll be able to to do it. three people have been reported dead and almost nine hundred wounded in just the latest palestinian and two occupation rallies in gaza that's according to the palestinian health ministry the protests are part of the six week great march of return demonstrations local journalist a hindu could bury was there for us that. i

infrastructure to be damaged it's now the fifth week of the so-called great march overturn in gaza over forty palestinians have already being killed and up to six thousand wounded in the i.d.f. using a controversial kind of rubber bullet a doctors without borders says it's teams have treated more people this april than in all of twenty fourteen and that was during the gaza war the following images from the ground showed journalists covering the rallies have also been injured the un has also denounced the use of live ammunition by the israeli defense forces against palestinians. israel's failure to consistently prosecute violations committed by members of its security forces encourages them to use deadly force against a fellow human beings he even when they present no threat in the context of an occupation such as gaza killings resulting from the use of force may also constitute willful killings which are
