nationalist. party who choose craving for some kind of confrontation it box from which you give it to crack someone that marvelous in the forthcoming election. the sixteenth straight weekend paris in the french cities witnessed yellow vast antique affluent marches on saturday clashes erupted at some of the demonstrations with police deploying take us and water cannons to disperse protests. according to official estimates around fourteen thousand people took part in march
12:10 am
as they should want four thousand of them in paris on friday president of the new electronic again appealed for calm urging people to refrain from engaging in the kind of files seen in previous weeks police made and then for the rest of the saturday what began as a grassroots rally ever feel prices has since broadened into wanting to anger at the president's handling of the economy. like a monster they should at least meet one of our demands to show they are listening to us even we are not doing this for nothing with fuel prices are rising and they were supposed to be frozen four year old prices are increasing in the supermarkets to ensure ten percent on products it's the opposite of what we want. well that's not such we want them to give the purchasing power back to the people at lower back on. those are the demands.
12:11 am
that. you. see this that people in difficult people who have a hard time smiling and. i think. the masses you can. have many different. this thursday u.s. president donald trump and north korea's leader kim jong il long with news and thousands of journalists descended on vietnam's capital of how for the two leaders second summit the much hyped meeting failed to produce any deal on the koreas denuclearization and the lifting of u.s. sanctions against pyongyang with trump and kim unable to agree on the terms this pipe that little had to weigh being made at the summit washington and pyongyang say the dialogue will continue and as an apparent a goodwill gesture the u.s.
12:12 am
and south korea have decided to suspend their annual joint military exercises the pentagon statement says in an effort. on the korean peninsula the drills have in fact not been cancelled completely but rather replaced by another set of exercises. take stock of. some of. the talks in hanoi between trump and care more complete failure a blowout. trump says the talks failed because of what he says were unreasonable demands they wanted the sanctions lifted. in their entirety and we couldn't do that but that is not how north korea remembers the meeting. proposed wasn't the removal of all sanctions but they were partial removal we proposed to the united states articles of sanctions that impede the civil. to me and a lot of people so with conflicting information about what actually took place at
12:13 am
the meeting between the two leaders we've now got the u.s. state department issuing an explanation of the explanation after the talks flopped in hanoi jumped on a plane to alaska it was certainly not singing the song of peace as he praised the troops america does not see conflict but if we are forced to defenders we will fight and we will win in an overwhelming fashion you are a powerful warning to the world to never strike american soil you are a warning that everybody knows about and nobody wants to play with you would think that with the utter trainwreck that was the talks with pyongyang that donald trump would be cruising for a bruising when he got back to the united states however that doesn't seem to be the case the epic failure seems to have been met with pretty broad approval both democrats and republicans seemed rather chipper about it it's good that the president did not get him anything was a little bit that he was proposing the north koreans walk away thinking you know
12:14 am
they've got they won and gradually they will see they were sanctions regime begin to erode then they've won and frankly that would be unfortunate i was smart to expose the north korean delegation to the god of our economic prosperity that could be possible it's a good thing that he walked away rather than agreeing to something that was badly flawed democratic presidential candidate toasting gabbert seem to stand alone invoicing disappointment kim jong un has clearly stated that he is holding on to these nuclear weapons as his only deterrent against the united states coming in and waging a regime change war in north korea so while you know i'm deeply concerned about the fact that this summit yesterday ended without an agreement it's not surprising because of this policy this regime change war policy might pompei all laid out. washington consensus with rather sharp terminology america has a responsibility to protect itself by pushing back against those evil nations and
12:15 am
those evil leaders who intend to do real harm to the world yes much like george w. bush with his rhetoric about evil doers donald trump is not setting himself up to win a nobel peace prize any time soon but most of the political establishment that normally hates donald trump seems to think that that's a ok caleb mop and artsy new york the experts we tilt to believe the trumpet ministrations. and step everything north korea is trust and let's have a promise is america's willing to make. it was not no deal versus bad deal it was a missed opportunity and the real question remains whether what was it that caused president or chairman kim for that matter to stand up and walk away hour and a half early i think there's a crisis in confidence between north korea in the us you know kim knows what's going on in the world and he looks around and he sees unfortunately and
12:16 am
depressingly the united states simply doesn't keep its word around the world trump is going to try to show success. he and that i think was one of the considerations in the discussions in in vietnam over over north korean missiles the reality is is a trump is looking to make a deal and to show international success and to so that he can have something to come back to and to offset the turmoil the inter the political turmoil he's facing back home but if we've taken over isis in syria then the question remains what about the troops u.s. troops who are there in syria what will happen with them those are questions of remain unanswered. disgraced former lawyer michael cohen failed to provide any evidence of collusion with russia when he testified before congress on
12:17 am
wednesday members of congress accused him of being a liar pulled no punches either when talking about his ex boss. today i am here to told the truth about. he is a racist. is a con man. and he's a cheat mr trump and directed the trump moscow negotiations throughout the campaign and lied about it and i have never asked for nor would i. president. ladies and gentlemen how on earth is this witness credible he's a fake witness the presence here is a travesty and you have a history of lying over and over and over again he said we were in charge of the truth i don't believe that. telling the truth he lied to congress through false statements and written statements to congress through his testimony it is able to
12:18 am
fight his false statements by releasing him refuting his lies to the public with. cohen who is a child confidant for more than a decade in the spotlight he will begin a three year prison sentence in the spring for tax and bank fraud as well as lying to congress we discussed his testimony with former us republican congressman michael patrick. as we call it in the united states when election season comes near we call it the silly season and in the silly season silly things happen this is a little early. something that you'd see in the silly season cohen is willing to use the word racist and a criminal one liar and anyone who's willing to speak in that absolute in that strongest terms in washington will always have an audience on one side or the other there is just an angry man who wanted to be chief of staff who didn't get to be chief of staff who was furious he could make a ton of money off the trump name after trump was elected president has decided
12:19 am
after all that he needs to get even in a vicious new york stupid sort of way and so he's going to come to congress and lie some more he's been disbarred for lying that the state of new york despite of the polls his law license because he's a liar a man who took their promise who took that oath and then took another oath in front of congress and has lied constantly can't be trusted ever to tell the truth even if he is telling the truth it will require cooperation substantiation and some backup and none of that was provided to. sheeting range in the u.k. has been branded distasteful for allowing pictures of eisel bride to shimmy in the back and to be used as target practice the teenager and notoriety after an interview in which she showed no remorse or regrets about fleeing to join the terrorist group in syria one of her images used at the range of it and bullet holes has been wind online reactions have been mixed a society where hate and violence against muslims particularly muslim women is most
12:20 am
prevalent on the rise it's deeply concerned that people requested an image of a real person as a shooting targets it's clearly wrong to use photos of people as targets in a shooting they should stop why you're so worried about a traitor they're just playing a game with her poster her i says friends tossed three real human heads of beheaded victims like a football and she wasn't faced remember that. shamima begum was born in britain but his passport and fled to syria to join iceland she was fifteen she now says she would like to return to the u.k. to care for her newborn baby but britain's move to revoke her citizenship here's why the shooting range says it decided to use by the image the target to provide some fantastic reactions and conversations and allow people to have some lighthearted fun and bring out the inner child in us all the targets we provide do not necessarily always reflect our personal opinions after watching footage of being interviewed and the lack of remorse and empathy she shows we chose to go
12:21 am
ahead and run the targets we asked i guess if the use of the image was appropriate . issue is how it's going to actually impacts on muslims in this country and muslim women in particular and the fact that we need to recognize that she whether we like it or not because she is a muslim woman she is going to inevitably represent something that the people who are going into range people are saying this is something that is going to be targeting muslim women in the second what is more what is more offensive to muslim women the fact that should be pagans picture was at the shooting range almost nobody is going to go to all the fact that somebody is appearing on international television to say that should mean the begum is a vet present state of muslim women in britain that is not what i said that is a caricature of precisely what i've actually precisely what you said that night if you have knowledge of the need to actually think about why do you allow me to
12:22 am
finish why don't you allow me to finish what i'm talking about plane that is being made is that a racist environment this is a racist environment which you are a part of which is encouraging the targeting of muslim women she is a terrorist and they're law abiding citizens and frankly you should take that back you should apologize to muslim women in this country for suggesting that she is like them this is a process of desensitization of children from a very early age and this is problematic because it is saying that it's ok to shoot and kill women in her job because that's exactly what is being suggested in this to call it harmless fun i think it's important that we recover the child advocates on the t.v. channels that we should take military action to get the child by its u.k. who after all is an innocent victim she can take a hike i don't care about. the release idea if she also says it's not true and b. so fed was there to raise all of that the moral thing if a small island person is
12:23 am
a terrorist that's an irish group he'll be placed in a way that would be taken away but for a white person that would not be an option. their citizenship would be taken away he said on other than the law recognize that there's a structural outside all racism that exists through everything that you are actually it's racism of what you would define i think it should be like a good day of the you all bring her back to defend the grain over and try her and that's the issue there is an environment of hate that exists i think what we have to think first of all who are the real victims here should be jim he's a terrorist she has supported a brutal terrorist regime the disgraceful idea in the media that we should be seeing her as the victim i think it's sad and pathetic that it would not be the role of the british state to tell british people what they can and can't do just cause one or two people are offended by it if we lived our lives bunning everything that that one person found offensive nothing would exist in the world and thank god i live in a country where we're never going to do that. better than us that politician bernie

you work to alleviate this issue. this is a law a long running to see is within the u.s. political system true. they're used to try to undermine opposing parties and the notion of opposing parties is just fundamentally destroying every country people just attacking each other from opposing sides that really decides what's really true is that this might be showing a symptom of something that is just has to do it out of the serial dialogue and progress through competition or progress through conflicts so i think that c.n.n. has their systemic issues just because again they have to have yours which is sort of sad but i find that that to be par for the course the way that our media operates is hard to find media that is doesn't have an agenda i would not be
