federal foreign office today declared to employees of the russian embassy in berlin to be persona non-grata with this step of the federal government reacts to the fact that the russian authorities despite repeated high ranking and in fact requests did not sufficiently participate in the investigation of the murder of 2 an a k k in berlin zoo there are sufficient real indications that the killing is either on commission or done by state agencies of the russian federation or such of the autonomy's chechen republic as part of the russian federation germany's prosecutors say or they have enough evidence linking the murder to moscow in article recently posted by the investigative group at the pointing finger is on last call that there is a link between the kremlin and the murder of the chechen ethnic last august here in berlin but let's talk about a little bit of what this group the link what we know about them so far is that they are of course sized to western secret services and they have played

a major role in major cases that involve the moscow case and the delany of h. 17 in ukraine russia has come out with their own statement about the reaction from berlin saying that this is groundless this is absolutely groundless speculation this topic is being somehow whipped up by german media but it does not mean it this is how things are. the us also been a reaction by e. german politician from the free democratic party alexandre graff alam store who spoke to the news agency a.f.p. he's asking for more information to be clearer shown to people why it is doing this we all i would like to point out here that next week in france the president of russia vladimir putin and the german chancellor angela merkel will be meeting in the normandy summit earlier from london today the chancellor angela merkel said
3:04 pm
that this would not affect in any way the talks between the countries since this has to do with ukraine but what she did leave open of that it's possible that the bailout of bilateral relations between the 2 countries get affected somehow. mccarran joined kuna nail eliot discuss the victims background. 40 year on filin car he was killed in what was described as an execution style killing he was shot twice in the head and this is a murder case that quickly became highly politicized in the media with headlines pointing the finger at russia drawing comparisons to describe things in the u.k. calling it the script l 2.0 in fact the media were less interested however in delving into the history of the victim which makes quite an interesting read his c.v. is is quite it shows a quite a checkered history let's say he's an ethnic chechen georgian citizen he was an islamist a former soldier he fought against russia in the 2nd chechen war he has connections
3:05 pm
to some very high profile terrorists many of the fighters the force alongside went on to move to syria and join islamist groups there he sought asylum in germany in 2050 and that was after a failed assassination attempt was that the 1st time someone tried to kill him. he was actually on a terror watch list for quite some time he. was described as a person who potentially posed a threat to the public safety he was taken off started terror list only last year in just this right in $28.00 he was removed from that list now needless to say is passed however interesting have a check it may be does not justify his killing and the perpetrator must be brought to justice but perhaps to give a fuller picture it's worth highlighting that this guy was not joe bloggs you know he was not your average everyday guy he was a man with connections to some very questionable individuals with some very extreme ideological tendencies. or economists talk to i believe was the case who calls
3:06 pm
political fallout it's unlikely to affect economic cooperation between russia and germany. we cannot trust any of those explanations from german governments at all it was already with this creep out it was with iraq all these so-called big evidences turned out to be just nothing if you look at what is happening in the world you will see that everybody tries to get better relationships to russia at the minute because this is the biggest and most important market of the future on the or asian continent and there are some powers who might not want this russian government knows pretty well that german government and german industry are 2 totally different things and i think this might harm their relationships to the german government but not to the german industry because i think by now everybody knows that these are 2 totally different things.
3:07 pm
leaders of nato member states has been meeting in london for a 2nd date among the 70th anniversary of the world's most powerful military alliance and despite attempts to put on a show of unity divisions within the crisis stricken coalition have been laid bare this past 48 hours he said alys been following the gathering in london. this summit is going to be defined not by the unity shown on the surface at least by all the leaders but by all the very very clear and apparent cracks between many of those coming into this summit perhaps one thing old leaders regularly seem to be agreed on is that russia is always the bad guy however the nato generally general secretary himself saying that what was needed was a more confrontation but dialogue with the major eastern neighbor nato essentially road all over the shop because russia is our. closest neighbor our biggest neighbor
3:08 pm
we need to strive for a better relationship with russia. on even if we are heading the table to. get a better relationship with russia in the near term we need to manage a difficult relationship and elsewhere as well we've also been hearing from manuel macron who's been saying that russia too that does need to be dialogue on that fronts now while they advocate more dialogue with russia the reality is of course that war games continue to take place on russia's borders with those eastern member states and of course that expansion of nato to the east continues to be a cause of national security concern for russia while any of the nato members such as take you for example who do wish to engage with russia even buy weapons from them will find themselves soon be out cost by other members russian air defense system 'd s. $400.00 would never be integrated into nato it will never be part of the nato
3:09 pm
integrated air missile defense system it was already tetchy and contentious going into this summit and it would appear that things got even worse 1 last night many of the leaders one of the leaders were invited to buckingham palace for a reception with the queen and some of them were caught on the microphone on the hot mike. please. listen let's just say if you see the. list. this is where he's a great politician as if it were not here she was at f. l. that's. at least
3:10 pm
to face today scott i find him to be a very nice guy but you know the truth is. i told him out of the fact that he's not paying 2 percent and i guess you don't really have to like donald trump not happy he had canceled a scheduled a press conference it was due to be held at the end of this and will be leaving at the summit in fact he's been meeting with other leaders focal 8 plus one who he says are the 8 countries other than the u.s. who have met the 2 percent spending targets for military targets and so mr trump making it very clear that sets in countries canada and particular are not welcome not impressed with what he had overall a very very divisive conference here in london. i talked to political commentator professor john bricmont about the summit he says the alliance is alienating russia and risking regional stability in the process. only problem really stones i'm. not an enemy in dark close i want to go. on but the religion we treasure within we
3:11 pm
invent all games of problems like maybe this people gears are the reason being in germany the country develops you know where in fact russia is on that side because they're fighting the terrorists whom we have said weapons to. you know i mean it will be very easy to get into a peaceful asian retraction per se just beginning because it uses diplomatic means and loved. ones and wars which is what nato is doing nothing. and they are spending an enormous amount of money and call now to lower the be a big strange lands close it spirit we send for the mystic police and he doesn't do . these little brains spending even more money on the defense which is and this is a. leading british universities being branded shameful and appalling over its advice regard lines for people based at its campus in dubai is some of the advice that's come under fire from academics students and the l.t.p.
3:12 pm
community. do not do anything that may be perceived as a public display of affection by the same sex or opposite sex even if it's intended to be innocent try to avoid dressing in a way which is not traditionally associated with your perceived gender if you are in public do not wear any clothes or accessories which could be considered to be a form of the l.g. q advocacy the university of birmingham opened its campus in the united arab emirates last year offering a range of course is set to u.k. standards it's currently expanding in dubai with plans to accommodate more than $4000.00 students however there are concerns over the human rights record and its treatment of the elderly bt community that's prompted a number of electors to refuse taking up any positions in the kingdom which forbids same sex relationships the university though says the guidelines are to protect students and staff earlier we discussed whether an educational institution should be offering such advice at all. there are thousands of. people who work
3:13 pm
in the united arab emirates and do saw for many many years i have friends there who work there so i don't think it is that much of an issue from the point of the. university it's about protecting students and it's about having the right guidance and support in place to protect students as they study in the country of the university of birmingham has a very clear and very good equal opportunities policy a very strong policy around human rights diversity and inclusion and by going to dubai it is violating its very own rules and principles may i think quite clearly this is simply a money making exercise the university of birmingham has put profit before human rights i can't is to be with anything peter said about the regime in the u.a.e. or saudi arabia or some of the other despot regimes in the middle east where there
3:14 pm
is no human rights and there is no freedom but i think it's important for individuals to know the expectation you know now that the universities there how they should behave in terms of protecting themselves sorry let me rephrase that how they should conduct themselves how they should protect themselves their own safety and the safety of their peoples and i think that's what the university was trying to do for a balance in terms of security and in terms of safety can't have one law for people in britain and then a different law for people in dubai that smacks of arrogance it's next of western privilege it smacks of disrespecting the human rights of the people of divide and i want to say that this is not just about the human rights of the lecturers and staff of university it's also about the human rights of the people in dubai itself who live under a very very oppressive regime reality is the university is there and they've got
3:15 pm
a juicy a moral duty to make sure that the safeguard and protection of their stuff and their peoples. and they've done it in that way which i think is most responsible giving advice to people. impeachment proceedings in the u.s. to gathering steam after the house intelligence committee released 12 democrats a coalition a damning report the document claims the president trump abused his office for personal gain by soliciting interference from ukraine for the 2020 election donald trump's brand of the allegations a joke with the details he has done a quarter. president donald trump is on the impeachment block again hearings are under way again and another impeachment reports been released accusing him of more than just a few misty perhaps that's why trump thinks it's a joke i saw it and it's a joke everybody saying it for the democrats though this is no laughing matter president trump and his senior officials may see nothing wrong with using the power of the office of the president to pressure
3:16 pm
a foreign country to help the president's reelection campaign however the founding fathers prescribed a remedy for a chief executive who places his personal interests above those of the country impeachment remember the flunk that was russia gate robert muller's investigation into trump's alleged ties to russia 2 years in the making and yet to deliver the grand revelations it promised but that's yesterday's headline the democrats have no time to lose with the 2020 presidential election looming closer they've put their hopes in the new ukraine gate report which this time took only 2 months to put together the dems say impeachment wasn't an easy conclusion to come to but come on guys we've been hearing this stuff since trump took office our rise today mr speaker. to call for the impeachment of the president of the united states of america your son 6 years as home alone if you want but only
3:17 pm
don't wait and maybe things won't because we're going to go in there we're going to be some other we shouldn't be impeached for a political reason and we should avoid punishment for political reasons it may be that we undertake an appeasement nonetheless the document is basically a summary of the impeachment hearing thus far it claims the testimonies were overwhelming evidence of trump's misconduct but some witnesses weren't as convincing as others there was no mention of withholding 8 on the call correct that's correct and there was no quid pro quo correct correct was there any reference to withholding aid you know there was not any reference to bribery no there was not any reference to quid pro quo no there was not you have any information regarding any criminal activity that the president of the united states has been involved with at all. now ukraine gate was handed to the dems by an anonymous whistleblower someone to put the final nail into the coffin of trump's political career someone protected from prosecution just what the anti trump
3:18 pm
brigade needed but you have to blow the right whistle to find protection under the law to take julian assad's he spent 7 years hiding from the law in london's ecuadorian embassy without any sympathy from washington i think a son should be assassinated actually. contracted maybe use a draw or something but this guy is a traitor a treasonous and he has broken every law the united states the guy ought to be and i'm not for the death penalty so if i'm not for the death penalty want to do it illegally shoot the son of a i think the man is a terrorist act tough and say if we catch you we're going to hang you one has to wonder how the founding fathers would have treated someone claiming to stand up against tyranny if they were with us today. we also florida democratic party chairman meant to seize a media analyst now i know how weighty they think the report is. what we have here is unprecedented and no one knows what it means because it means nothing why do we
3:19 pm
call it an impeachment inquiry because if it was an impeachment hearing or an impeachment proceeding the president would have been allowed to invite it to subpoena witnesses but since they didn't do that and didn't want him to do that they called it an impeachment inquiry and they have not changed one i ota from what they said when they began the inquiry that and i will paraphrase it the president used to his position his authority under article 2 of the constitution for personal and or political benefits. and the last time i checked every president since george washington as done this this is not impeachable but i do believe that the democratic report was factual and obviously the republican response was perhaps
3:20 pm
a fairy tale that people do want to read perhaps to put someone to bed specifically you have very different responses be on the lookout for this what we have to look at is these different articles that are going to come out that will be pretty straightforward there's going to be an abuse of power because as you say in the quote he took his interests above the national interest there's also going to be obstruction some is obstruction of congress not letting people cooperate. but his envoy to the world chemical weapons watchdog says a new investigation is needed into last year's alleged chemical attack in the syrian city of duma it comes after a number of o p c w employees raised concerns about the official findings the organizations report was compiled following the april 28th attack which was blamed on the syrian government the alleged atrocity prompted retaliate tree as strikes by britain france and the united states on a number of targets in damascus and holmes again later whistleblowers began to cost doubt over the findings claiming the report was heavily redacted and scientifically
3:21 pm
flawed to suited to conclusions most of the sea reports in the instant the interim reports in the final report was scientifically impoverished procedurally irregular and possibly fraudulent. in addition to the o.p.c. w.'s impartiality having been called into question a number of academics have claimed that the media's failed to provide balanced coverage of the syrian conflict one of them max abrams explained what he sees as some of the shortcomings. there to mainstream nehru going to get to the conflict in a very simplistic way sexually by making it seem like i said before saddam was even more extreme than he actually captured firstly this pro regime change crowd meeting seem as if the rebels fighting assad were more moderate than they actually what are the more time goes on the more evidence for emergencies the more it
3:22 pm
becomes difficult to claim that you know assad is all evil and the rebels who are all good at least 3 different scientists who were involved in this but who are officially part of this group didn't die but we've got a report which is broadcast in medio actually reflects the science we should hear from those scientists exactly what the scientists was all about. members of the ukrainian ultranationalist battalion of apparently turned up in hong kong taking part in the continuing protests there photos of their visit were posted on social media by a former head of one of the as of the tally in the unit they show a number of masked men walking through the city and posing in front of the university damaged during clashes between protesters and police one of them was identified online as an asshole veteran and some demonstrators from hong kong are happy about the unexpected guest. huge warning about some protests to risk we have
3:23 pm
just turned up and who were at the rally yesterday if they are reserve battalion then we're talking full on neo nazi fascists connected with war crimes and torture the worst of the worst as a battalion is unarmed volunteer units which is now part of the ukrainian interior ministry the group has been accused of human rights violations and war crimes during the conflict in the country's eastern donbass region the patel has also notorious for its use of nazi symbols in october 40 members of the u.s. congress demanded as of be recognized as a terrorist organization and journalist martin summers says such appearances at the hong kong protest detrimental to the movement but could imagine if i was a home call princess royal wouldn't particularly like these these rather unpleasant forces for ukraine's to jordan more protests but you can't really stop people from turning the city this even if you wanted to you give that if you approach us
3:24 pm
through home called you need to be demonstrating some cause of loyalty to the. choice nice community and not to be seen as a foreign influence of the 43 years therefore you don't particularly need to have loads of people turning up to make it look as if you are in section of the foreign influence but what we're seeing protests is in hong kong waving american flags for example which back in the days of the chinaman square protests in the late eighty's would have been unthinkable because it would demonstrate like the patriotism and so on. also in ukraine a college campus fire has left one person dead and 26 others injured in the port city of a death the fire began on wednesday morning in one of the colleges historic buildings around 400 people were believed to have been inside at the time 15 remain unaccounted for the authorities have launched an investigation into the course of the blaze. that's it from us to moscow for now back again in just about half an hour next how having a political opinion to be elevated these days from being just

recently politics were about policy preferences and ways to implement them that is not the case today your political views are now what define you as a person and there is a moral dimension bias against those who are not politically correct is the last acceptable form of discrimination this is the end of politics. cross-linking political intolerance i'm joined by my guest kevin chavez in washington he's managing partner of the chavez group as well as former president of d.c. young democrats also in washington we have christopher and i we he's a political analyst and iraq war veteran also in raleigh we cross to ryan he is the national co-chair and founder of students for trump all right gentlemen crosstalk rules in effect that means you can jump in anytime you want and i always appreciate ok kevin i'm going to go to you 1st because you're on the odd man out i want to make that clear i'm going to make sure that you get equal time on this program
3:30 pm
because i always welcome different opinions have any and in my introduction here i said that you know the last bias that is politically that is acceptable is this group me against people because of their political views i mean that is on steroids right now and i think that is very it's terrible for our political discourse i'm sure i would disagree with you on many many points but i'm welcoming you on this program and i'm i actually i'm very interested in what you have to say because i don't see that in the national media much anymore go ahead kevin why is this the case where i think you know what you're referring to. is the fact that people are so used to consuming the media that they want to consume or they're sort of validates their personal beliefs that they're not really open to hearing other sides but i think when we call it discrimination i think that is probably not the right word because in what way is a stopping you from from living a certain quality of life it's not like racial discrimination or.
