8:02 am
the demonstrations were held right across the country on thursday me on my say i'm and all saw clashes between riot police and protesters one of the largest trade union says 1500000 people marched in support of the interior ministry claims the figure were half that officers used tear gas to disperse the crowds but the most violent rallies occurring in the french capital new watch them unfold. this strike has been planned for many months now and this is against a proposed changes by the french government to the pension system here in france the idea here is that they want to amalgamate number of different systems around 42 different systems into a universal system but people say that i will have a massive impact on their pensions because it will mean that their pensions perhaps could be lower in the feature or in fact that they might have to work even longer and that has caused huge fury here in france the crimes go all the way back more than a close to god do nor which is where this process was originally due to start off
8:03 am

a ruling striking in the lead up to christmas and going on until the new year as the strike is attempt to make the french government me think these pension reforms for the moment here in france people are adamant that they want to have their voices heard this come out to the streets to make sure that's happening. earlier this week nato leaders gathered in the u.k. to celebrate the military alliance is 70th anniversary the turns out people in the host country have little knowledge of its relevance. most people what they think are the main 3 achievements of they. even though. in terms of achievements no. i don't know what it's about have no idea any advantage of nato i honestly don't know anything about it until the flag of the day and only my husband recognise what it was who it's a good question but let me think
8:05 am
a little bit. so one is probably to be honest i don't have i don't have even one leaders use the occasion to claim that nato is the most successful alliance in history of the members disagree as to what the main threats to the bloc are they did agree though to share its running costs more evenly something the us has long been urging simon right from political satire show in case you missed it gives an alternative take on the summit. $29.00 nation alliance which makes up one of the hall of the world's military spending yet still calls itself. has turned 7 c. congratulations nato leaders are lovely. in london some drinks spread some president trump accused the president of france and anyone michael of being nasty bullied the least popular. video from being laughed at by trudeau micron and even boris johnson has been seen around the world today wouldn't say
8:06 am
exactly plain sailing for this nato meeting but here come all the leaders now coming in with the. same menu that's a president of somewhere oh yeah i know that one i know that one. together last. next to you. leader of. the least popular to this christmas. in that happy day to. expose him to. is this going to strengthen the school to. kill one. of the main festivities started a select group of leaders have the tools to meet at the u.s. ambassador's residence we like kids going to. play by the orange one sat on a golden throne i suppose he does pay for nato presence after all something the head of the alliance un stoltenberg knows very well but again this critical need
8:07 am
was the spine of this is. going to get america to pay the bills you know i've always thought that being the head of nato must be the least powerful powerful job in the world so despite their recent differences france's emmanuel did meet trump and he's got. to put on a frankly all some display of man spreading. and passive aggression this is where we. were greeted as you know. ok because i don't know if. you could have something different from the us. about this but. the water. you. know well with nato which has become like any 70 year old is wasteful and has expanded since it's probably become a bit of a financial burden to the family we can't work out who it is slow and small the
8:08 am
russians the chinese all the middle easterns. anniversary party was marred by protests in the english capital some demonstrators vented their anger against certain attendees others objected to nato pressuring its members to raise defense spending. r t america's rick sanchez asked his guest about the current purpose of nato and if it really is obsolete as donald trump once put it before changing as mine. you're a diplomat you've had a lot of experience in this field what is it that nato either must do today to stay viable or do we even need it anymore you know it's a bureaucracy in search of a mission i was right in 2016 when he said it was obsolete and so afraid was the establishment that he meant what he said on the very day he was inaugurated and they tried to ram through the addition of a new country montenegro eventually got through because it turned out they didn't have to worry about intentions once he filled his administration with a bunch of bushies and retreads of the heritage foundation they've simply adopted
8:09 am
of the policies we've had the last few decades and somehow turned into nato as obsolete into let's make nato great again we'll just strong on these countries to pay more for their defense against nobody in particular you think they know as in fact outlived its usefulness i thought so in 1909 and i think so today it's been known as a loser from a standpoint of being a naturalized american and having read the founding fathers warning you can't seem to angling alliances i mean what is this but in entangling alliances it's our own foreign policy that did reason nato is being kept around by the foreign policy hawks in washington is not because it's necessary for the actual military operations and nato itself doesn't really contribute a whole hell of a lot there are very few countries with the notable exception i want to say france and turkey but it put a bit in as if this is not a good idea for the united states and its very close allies to have an association a military but i would close our eyes that's what i was trying to say france and turkey could theoretically mountie independent military operations everybody else
8:10 am
is just a hanger on they're just window dressing for us military operations but the are literally like roman exactly erisa want to do what i've been hearing go bad what where did that where did that this launch it went or where that is what it seems to be a dismissive alliance and $991.00 when the soviet union and the warsaw pact would out of business nato should have as well as why didn't they let russia in i mean that literally that time i've read on many occasions proved himself i said why don't you get is that. if you are you're going to tell you who it was but one of the european european nato has said if we did that the nato would be like the un just to talk shop it couldn't take action by which they've been military action all the civil way to listen to what you just said if you're saying it doesn't work if we don't have enemies exactly what if we had agreed to and had the ability to inflict military force and i dare to say aggression in places like serbia and libya whatever we want to using nato as a platform but enemies could change by the way russia could be s.o.b.'s at one time like of the 1950 s. but not so much now right but better why don't you have
8:11 am
a system that allows that ability i guess because because whose interest is that serve and all these all these are they that these these military companies and these bureaucrats who have the nice cool rice balls at the expense of their taxpayers because there's a threat out there is a bear in the woods. moscow has denied it's been unwilling to cooperate with german authorities over an investigation into the murder of a georgian national in berlin in august after berlin expelled 2 russian diplomats on wednesday i mean that moscow house and been forthcoming enough foreign minister sergei lavrov told r.t. that it appears moscow will again be blamed for a crime it was never involved in. the federal foreign office today declared to employees of the russian embassy in berlin to be persona non grata with this step the federal government reacts the fact that the russian authorities despite repeated high level and in fact it requests did not sufficiently participate in the investigation of the murder of tony k.k. in berlin zoo. they said we did not cooperate enough this is groundless some
8:12 am
countries today recalled the tragedy of m.h. 17 my dutch counterpart said we didn't do enough then we supplied them with all the necessary information with data from our radars and so on we gave them everything where are the satellite images the us promised nobody answered that we asked them what kind of cooperation they want from us they responded by saying you have to confess you did it that would be co-operative if germany wants to follow suit nothing good will come of it that's not a good way to deal with anyone and with russia in particular. the murder in question happened in late august and 1 of berlin's parks the 40 year old victim was shot and killed on his way to a mosque eyewitnesses say a cyclist shot the man in the back of the head and then fled the scene of slain man's on the congo severely also known as torn i k with a georgian citizen who since 2017 had lived in germany as an asylum seeker he had
8:13 am
ties to a high profile chechen terrorists and russia and fought against russian troops and police during the 2nd chechen war the man was wanted by russian authorities on terrorism charges the case was seized on by the controversial belling cat investigative group which along with german newspaper at their spiegel were quick to point the finger at moscow with allegations that russian authorities had helped the assassin create his fake identity economists i car told us the evidence presented so far has been inconclusive. you can definitely see that there are certain interests who want to poison the relationship between russia and germany it seems that there is some cleaning up we're going on with isis and everything around and this high profile terrorist who might be related to all these happenings in there with isis and syria and so on so i think there can be many more reasons why this was done and who did this apart from russia the problem
8:14 am
is that we cannot trust any of those explanations from german governments at all it was already was a scream it was with iraq all these so-called big evidences turned out to be just nothing and in this case to make such a big thing like sending 2 people home is without any proven fact it is just a disgrace i'm feeling very ashamed of the federal bureau of foreign affairs. popular free dating out such as tender are not protecting the users from sex offenders on their part forms as according to a new investigation by american nonprofit organization pro publica the prob took a look at more than one $150.00 incidents of sexual assault over the past decade it found that the majority of victims were women who met their attackers through match apps and 10 percent of the cases they were paired with men who had already been
8:15 am
accused of or convicted of sex crimes. match group which owns over 40 of the most popular apps as they do conduct background checks on their members but only for paid accounts for the company says it disputes investigations findings. the implication that we know about such offenders on our site and don't fight to keep them off is as outrageous as it is falls as technology evolves we will continue to aggressively deploy new tools to eradicate bad actors including users of our free products where we are not able to obtain sufficient and reliable information to make meaningful background checks possible chadwick more a journalist at spectator magazine and reese everson a women's rights advocate give us their thoughts on dating platforms and their screening path. the match group is a $1000000000.00 company there is no reason why they couldn't allocate just a small portion of their revenue to screen the people on their ab just so that there is just a smaller since of increased safety it's a precaution it's
8:16 am
a measure but it's deserved if they appear if they're suddenly saying that we want in order to join the service we want to perform background checks on everyone who joins 1st of all that would kill the business and they know it there's a moral responsibility on these companies that are making billions of dollars 1700000000 dollars from women looking for love to say oh you know what it's too expensive for us to do a little bit to protect you nobody's going to want to join these apps with these kind of if they're doing that they're being this invasive about background checks with that said people maybe shouldn't be on them especially women and not only are these dangerous for women but it's destroying women so just give up the dating apps if you don't perform your own background checks in your own time with your own money get off we're not going to restrict women from using the internet because there are predators we do desire for these companies to at least take the step into
8:17 am
the right direction why do you want to put that kind of power on these monolithic tech companies and up saying that you know banned women from dating apps i'm simply saying you should rely on this and you can't trust these companies to tell you who's good and who's bad you need to take that into your own hands so if you meet someone do a background check before you did before you go out on a date if they work in tandem with the courts to get the names at least of the 1st and last names in the location of where these people are and perhaps create some type of monitor of their internet that's a step in the right direction it's going to be a mess i think no matter what and there's always going to be people who perhaps squeak through or don't get picked up who then commit assaults and crimes get a gun ladies. protect yourselves and we don't win and by the way these incidences are obviously extremely rare and you know by and large the vast majority of men are not sexual predators one woman is enough we need the companies to take
8:18 am
a moral stance or at least have some sort of responsibility to protect the women that utilize their ad and then what happens you know it's it's never going to be a perfect system. still to come us 20 twentieth's reelection ravelry sees an unexpected turn with the baby yoda character from the latest star wars saga spin off outrunning the democratic front runners on social media and other stories that shape the week after the short break. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy. let it be an arms race. scary dramatic developments only. i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down and
8:19 am
talk. the defensive alliance that has shaken several countries it's the union of the supposedly like minded the country do you and what the main threats of it's the appear to me of military might but said to be both in great shape and brain dead at the same time as the organization celebrates its 70th anniversary is it finally just think about the times. welcome back to the weekly it's been a rocky start for some u.s.
8:20 am
presidential election campaigns with several runners r.t. stumbling out the 1st hurdle and dropping out but it seems the baby out of character from a star wars spin off could be quite a successful candidate if it through its name and to the 2020 race according to a recent poll outrunning all democratic hopefuls on social media including front runners joe biden and bernie sanders but that's not going to but that's not going to make the pair stop striving to be called the perfect candidate and has the story . in the imperfect world of the who we grill these finding something perfect it is of course impossible but goodness do they really try every for you. 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
8:21 am
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 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 act of destruction of my people if it makes me seem in a yacht or more electable than british for to within a seriously antic with salvation army these activists are literally
8:22 am
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 a presidential candidate then you have bernie sanders who 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
8:23 am
decency he's just ancient. get on and much like former vice president and controller see magnate joe biden e's neck deep in just the weirdest stuff even getting really close and taking the nice sniff of people's hair now embroiled in ukraine gate he got his little boy 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 yourself off as part native american which was an exaggeration by which i mean it was entirely made up
8:24 am
bashing. no one it seems is good enough homosexual homophobe a black woman who isn't black enough an old man that's obsessed with helping the people that need help biden in his head sniffing and seriously what the hell then again perhaps people wouldn't need pick so much if you know they had something else 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. stuff. lastly some world news in brief a massive fire has torn through a paper factory in the center of the indian capital leaving 43 people dead according to officials fire has now been put out but the rescue operation is still underway emergency services say 50 people have so far but rescued dozens of workers
8:25 am
were sleeping inside the building when the fire broke out i mean factory is located near large markets which made the work of the firefighters more difficult it's thought a short circuit started the fire. tens of thousands have gathered in hong kong for a nother anti-government protest though this time it's been authorized by police some demonstrators brought along u.s. flags the protest began 6 months ago or a now scrapped extradition bill and now call for greater independence from asia. and israel has carried out air strikes on the gaza strip in response to rocket fire hours earlier according to local media reports 2 people were injured in the air raid israeli military says it targeted hamas positions. that's a breakdown of just some of the biggest headlines from the past week for more on the stories and the latest news head to our website or to dot com.

8:27 am
to globalization day dollars a day notice happening as the world us kind of drifting apart a lot of different ways we look into it because there's an economic force behind it as always. facebook and google started with a great idea and great ideals unfortunately there was also a very dark so. they are constructing a profile of you and that profile is real it's detailed and it never goes away turns out that google is manipulating your opinions from the very 1st character that you type into the search bar it will always favor one dog food over another one comparative shopping service over another and one candidate over another they can suppress certain types of results deiced on what they think you should be see if they have this kind of power then democracy is an illusion the free and fair
8:28 am
election doesn't exist the more we give them the sooner we are all. i'll be doing this so they i die and i hope not i hope i have to spend my days going to save dogs and you know you can't save and then you ride by barns and you look your honor these are dogs who are. sad. tara loud to do this to these dogs. i mean 67 years you know they've been locked up in a cage outside you see no protection from the weather the heat you know the cold
8:29 am
air the rain the snow the thunder nothing they have no protection yet as soon as we take the dog in each it's just wants to. meet you see you know wants to affection. to let you. know it's ok. to. keep. mom and dad will probably live their entire lives on that facility in a pin whether it's smaller or larger size but they're not themselves hence
8:30 am
they are breeding stock they they typically don't come in the house and snuggle on the couch. they have no idea what life is is about because they spent 247 in a cage when you came into one of these popping alls. you would just see one on top of another in these little chicken wire crates. you know how cramped it is when you're when you're flying and i was thinking about and i thought it must be like that for the puppy mill dogs that are in these cages being able to get up and move around and i think that the 740 seven's comedy 400 people and i thought it's just like taking 400 golden traverse or labs or shepherds and putting them in a scene shrapnel them in and making them live there for 8 years you will typically smell of facility before you actually walk near the cages and as soon as you can see the cages.
