the figure was that officers who used tear gas to disperse the crowds with the most violent rallies occurring in the french capital pro defense they watched 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 that has caused a 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 with what was come for many hours is turned to a huge tensions with clashes between the police and the protest as we saw a van. and on fire and they got tear gas really coming quite pleased to us and you
might get a sense of it just down that you can see there more tear gas into the protesters trying move people away incredible as fames just getting and as you can hear you know we're seeing protests is smashing shops in front of us tear gas is bringing down and those crews are battling. battling to half contain this fire they've also been tensions elsewhere in fronts north just here tensions in places like. other cities the suggestion now is that this one day strike that was initially planned by transport workers and is now encompassed teachers health work is the firefighters and even the police could now start a ruling striking in the lead up to christmas and going on until the new year as.
the strike is a time to make the french government rethink these pension reforms for the moment here in france people actually meant 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 but it turns out many people in the host country have little knowledge of its relevance. of what they think are the main 3 achievements of. in terms of achievements know very little i don't know what it's about having no idea that any advantage of nato which i honestly don't know anything about doing so the flag seal the day and only my husband recognized what it was who it's a good question but let me think a little bit. so it's probably yeah 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 though some 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 u.s. 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 the whole of the world's military spending yet still calls itself. has turned 7 c. congratulations nato leaders are lovely. in london and drinks spirits and president trump accused the president of france and anyone 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 exactly plain sailing for this nato meeting but here come all the leaders now coming in the.
family photo many of us a president of somewhere oh yeah i know that one i know that one. called them together last. next to. leader of. the least popular to keep this christmas. in that happy day to. suppose they are having to listen to this guy strangle a scottish. one. before 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 new twist of the spine says we have. to get america to pay the bills
and 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 emanuel kong did meet trump and. whether to put on a frankly all some display of man spreading. and passive aggression this is where he. would be great if you know. ok because so. you can have something different from the u.s. . but. also water. you. know well with nato which has become like any 70 year old it's waistline has expanded since it's probably become a bit of a financial burden to the family they can't work out who it is like small the russians the chinese all the middle east and. the anniversary party was marred by protests i mean english half at all. some demonstrators vented their anger against
certain attendees while 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 his mind. 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 does 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 thankfully they got it through because it turned out they didn't have to worry about trump's intentions once he filled his administration with a bunch of bushies and retreads of the heritage foundation they've simply adopted the policies we've had the last few decades and somehow turned into nato as obsolete into let's make nato great again which are strong on these countries to
pay more for their defense against nobody in particular you think you know has in fact outlived its usefulness i thought so in 1909 and i think so today it's been as a list of 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 would put it in as its 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 is just a hanger on and they're just window dressing for us military operations the literally like roman exactly erisa started when i was in here things go bad where did that
word of the destruction 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 boot himself has 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 small 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 a system that allows that ability i guess because because whose interest does 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 is a threat out there is a bear in the woods to. moscow has denied it's been unwilling to cooperate with german authorities or an investigation into the murder of a georgian national in berlin and august after berlin expelled 2 russian diplomats on wednesday claiming that moscow hausen been forthcoming enough foreign minister sergei lavrov told r.t. that it appears moscow out 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 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 and 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 while on his way to a mosque i went to say a cyclist shot the man in the back of the head and then fled the scene the slain man can come and go shmuley also known as tonic a was a georgian citizen who since 2017 had lived in germany as an asylum seeker he had ties to a high profile chechen terrorists in 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 news paradox people were quick to point the finger at moscow with allegations that russian authorities had helped the assassin create his fake identity a canvas icon we're 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 is that we cannot trust any of those explanations from german governments at all it was already was a screen it was was 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 app such as tender are not protecting their users from 2nd offenders on their platforms as according to a new investigation by american nonprofit organization proposed look at the probe 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 cases they were paired with men who had already been accused 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 their the company says it disputes the 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 bank ground checks possible chadwick more a journalist at spectator magazine and reese everson a women's rights advocate gave us their thoughts on dating platforms and their screening policies. the magic 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 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 1 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 get all 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 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 shouldn't 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 for 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 live 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 a moral stance or at least have some sort of responsibility to protect the women that utilize their app and then what happens you know it's it's never going to be
a perfect system. still to come to us 2020 preelection ronald reagan sees an unexpected turn with the baby out of character from the latest star wars spin off outrunning the democratic front runners on social media story and more after the break. you know world a big part of the mob and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smart we need to stop slamming the door on the back and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now we're watching closely watching the hawks.
see. nato the defensive alliance that has shaken several countries it's the union of the supposedly like minded that come to do you and what the main threats of it's the appear to me of military might that said to be both in great shape and brain dead at the same time as the organization celebrates its 70th anniversary is it finally done through it just think about the time. welcome back to the weekly it's been a rocky start for some u.s. presidential election campaigns with several runners already stumbling at 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 into the 2020 race according to
a recent poll outrunning all democratic hopefuls on social media including front runners joe biden and bernie sanders about it's not going to stop the pair striving to be called a perfect candidate. as the story. in this imperfect world of ours the hooli grail is finding something perfect it is of course impossible but goodness do they really try every 4 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 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 booted shorter within a seriously antique with salvation army these activists are literally 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 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 decency he's just ancient. get on much like former vice president and controller see magnet joe biden ease neck
deep in just the weirdest stuff begin 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 i'm 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 that she tried to pass yourself off as part native american which was an exaggeration by which i mean it was entirely made up bashing. no one it seems is good enough homosexual whole move 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. living stuff. last place on world news in brief a massive fire has torn through a paper factory in the center of the indian capital even 43 people dead according to officials the fire has now been put out but the rescue operation is still underway emergency services say 50 people have already been rescued dozens of workers were sleeping inside the building when the fire broke out and the factory is located near large markets which mean the work of firefighters much more difficult it's not a short circuit start of the fire. hundreds of thousands hit the streets of hong
kong on sunday for another anti-government protests this time it was authorized by police some demonstrators brought along u.s. flags. heated weaponry from protesters the protests began 6 months ago a mousetrap extradition bill and continue with new calls for greater independence from beijing. 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. it's a recap of just some of the stories that help shape the world these last 7 days for all the latest and up to the minute reports also on twitter facebook.
welcome to max kaiser financial survival guide. looking forward to. this is what happens to pensions in britain don't just. watch times report. facebook and google started with a great idea and great ideals unfortunately it 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 be one dog food over another one comparative shopping service over another and one candidate over another they can suppress certain types of results what they think you should be see if they have
a k c terms of its revenue model registers dogs and registers litters so it's involved in a transactional relationship with those breeders and obviously the ones producing the most dogs are the largest scale breeders so why is it going to crack down on those large scale breeders and sacrifice the revenue from a rigorous program that stops people from confining animals denying them vet care exposé them to extremes of even cold if they're going to lose revenue the american kennel club prides itself on being the only purebred registry in the united states with an ongoing routine kennel inspection program with a dedicated team of field inspectors casey says that it inspects kennels but they don't make any of those inspection records available. they say that they've got
rigorous standards but they really don't announce what those standards are in real terms they say that they kick people out but we don't really have a comprehensive record of when they're doing that or what the consequences are even if they can still keep breeding. and they can still keep operating so what's the value of their inspections program there in foresman efforts for all we know are completely meaningless we don't know what they even inspect when they go into these facilities because they don't make their inspection records public quite frankly if they were meaningful inspections there would be no reason not to make them public. while the a k c boasts of a rigorous inspection program in 2011 only one point.
