donald trump. and a new investigation warms the dating apps such as safeguard users from convicted sex offenders our guests debated whether responsibility to protect women's lives. we need the companies to take a moral stance or at least have some sort of responsibility 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. hello i'm rose on a low could bring you the weekly here on r.t. international thank you for joining us. the f.b.i. is presuming the pensacola naval base shooting that left 3 people dead and 8 injured on friday was an act of terrorism and investigation is ongoing but no terror group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack. we are as we do in most
11:02 pm
active shooter investigations work with the presumption that this was an act of terrorism this allows us to take advantage of investigative techniques that can help us more quickly identify and then eliminate any additional potential threats to the rest of our community the government or sean at the scene by officers he was a saudi military trainee and was at the base to study aviation intelligence officials say the shooter had been based there for 2 years and it's still unclear how he got the weapons which are not allowed on site the incident happened at the u.s. naval air station pensacola which is located on the florida coast it has 16000 military and over 7000 civilian personnel the facility hosts many international students who are required to undergo background checks before training. or prior to the deadly shooting a twitter account which allegedly belonged to the saudi air force officer posted
11:03 pm
anti u.s. messages condemning washington's policies in the middle east the f.b.i. says it's working to confirm those tweets through teach you can this gregory kopi thinks the shooting throws a wrench into efforts to boost the u.s. saudi alliance. it's very hard to get into the minds of individuals and i think we're in an at an age where we see people radicalized online to a large extent so that they can turn at any moment clearly this young officer was personally motivated to undertake this and the america act and very hard to stop people problem that kind of allegiance we've even seen as you know in the past some u.s. officers undertake acts of terrorism and the american acts of terrorism within their own military unit so this is not surprising it does however actually cause a problem for the saudi government and the u.s. government because saudi arabia and the united states were busily trying to repair
11:04 pm
the fences between them because bitter breakdown in their strategic relationship over the past few months particularly as the saudi government and the u.a.e. government each thought that the u.s. was going to abandon them and do a deal with iran and that caused a big upset with a lot of a lot of saudis who felt that the u.s. was betraying them. problems has seen yet another day of demonstrations they spilled over from a one day national strike on thursday one of the biggest in the country in years protesters have been angered at the government's plans to overhaul the pension system. i. know massive demonstrations were held right across the country on thursday mostly a non soul saw clashes between run police and protesters one of the largest trade union says 1500000 people marched in support although the interior ministry claims
11:05 pm
the figures were home offices used to take us to disperse crowds with the most violent rallies occurring in the french capital challenged bensky 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 future 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 with what was coming for many hours is turned to a huge tensions with clashes between the police and the protest as we saw a van a certain item on fire and they got tear gas really coming quite close to us and
11:06 pm
you might get a sense of it just down that you can see there more tear gas come into the protesters shariah and move people away incredible as famous just saying and as you can hear you know we're seeing protests this crushing 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 tensions in places like i know and other cities the suggestion now is that this one take. reich 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 rolling strike in the lead up to christmas and going on until the new year as the strike is attempt to make the french government rethink these pension reforms for
11:07 pm
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 the 70th anniversary but it turns out many people in the host country have little knowledge of its relevance. soft people what they think are the main 3 achievements of nato. in terms of achievements know very little i don't know what it's about have no idea any advantage of nato or gee i honestly don't know anything about it so the flag still a day and only my husband recognized what it was poor it's a good question. everything from the. so one is probably to be honest i don't have i don't have even one. does use the occasion to
11:08 pm
claim that nato is the most successful alliance in history some of the members disagree as to what the main threats to the block all they did agree to share it's running costs more even they just don't have the us has long been urging for simon right from political satire showing casey mystic it's not turn to take on the somewhat. $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 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 so i wouldn't say exactly plain sailing for this nato meeting but here come all the leaders now coming in the family so. many of us
11:09 pm
a president of somewhere oh yeah i know that one i know that one. together last. next to you. leaders to. the least popular turkey this christmas. and that happy day to. i suppose they are having to listen to this guy's trying to listen to. someone. before the main festivities started a select group of leaders at the top of the meet at the u.s. ambassador's residence wheeled in 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 the street until it was the on differences we gave you to get america to pay the bills you know i've always
11:10 pm
thought that being the head of nato must be the least powerful powerful job in the world despite their recent differences france is a man your mark on did me trump a newsgroup with a tuple on a frankly all some display of man spreading. and passive aggression this is where you. were. ok because. you should have some foundation from the us right i didn't think about this but. the water. and a coke. was not well with nato which has become like any increase 70 year old is wasteful and has expanded since it's prolly 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 ins. the anniversary party was mauled by protests in the english capital some demonstrators vented their anger against
11:11 pm
certain attendees while others objected to nato pressuring its members to raise defense spending. on america's rick sanchez asked his guests about the current purpose of nature 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 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
11:12 pm
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 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 it's not a good idea for the united states and its very close allies to have an association a military but i would classify as 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 but the are
11:13 pm
literally like roman exactly erisa want to do what i've been hearing 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 buddha 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 hacks said if we did that the nato would be like the un just a talk shop it could take action by which they meant military action. 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 libya whatever we want to using nato as a platform but enemies can change by the way russia can be s.o.b.'s at one time like of the 1950 s. but not so much now. but better why don't you have a system that allows that ability i guess because because whose interest is that serving at all these all these are the over these military companies and these
11:14 pm
bureaucrats who have the nice full rice balls at the expense of their taxpayers because there is a threat out there is a bear in the woods. 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 yoda character from a star wars spin off could be quite a successful candidate if it through its name into the 2020 presidential race according to a recent poll baby yoda is out trending all democratic hopefuls on social media including front runners joe biden and bernie sanders but that's not going to stop that post driving to be called the perfect candidate merde guess t. of has 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
11:15 pm
the perfect candidate a smallish chink in their houllier 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 now 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
11:16 pm
imagine a more succinct visual metaphor for i will gleefully work for the active destruction of my people if it makes me seem in a yacht or more electable than booted shorter within a seriously antic with salvation army these activists are literally accusing an openly gay man of supporting homophobia just just let it sink in he hasn'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
11:17 pm
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. 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 a 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
11:18 pm
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 a self 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 seriously what the hell then again perhaps people wouldn't need to 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. popular free

dating apps such as tender are not protecting their users from sex offenders on their platforms that's according to an investigation by american nonprofit organization pro publica the probe took a look at more than 150 incidents of sexual assault over the past decade and they found that the majority of victims were women who met their attackers through match group apps in 10 percent of cases they were paired with men who had already been accused of all convicted of sex crimes on march group that owns over 40 of the most popular apps as they do conduct background checks on their members but only for paid accounts further the company says it disputes the investigation's 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
11:20 pm
products where we are not able to obtain sufficient and reliable information to make meaningful bank ground checks possible chadwick more journalist and spectator magazine and research everson a women's rights advocate gave us their thoughts on dating platforms and the screening policies. the magic group is a $1000000000.00 company there's 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's 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
11:21 pm
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 a 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 deserve 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 you know ban 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
11:22 pm
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 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. in other news this hour moscow has denied it's been on willing to cooperate with german authorities over an investigation into the murder of a georgian national in but then in august and that's off to berlin expel 2 russian diplomats on wednesday claiming that moscow hasn't been forthcoming enough foreign
11:23 pm
minister sergei lavrov told r.t. it appears moscow will again be blamed for a crime it was never involved in. the federal foreign office today declared 2 employees of the russian embassy in berlin to be persona non-grata with this step the federal government reacts the fact that the russian or thirty's 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 counterparts and 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 to 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 corporative if germany wants to follow suit
11:24 pm
nothing good will come of it that's not a good way to deal with anyone and with russia in particular. on the murder in question happened in late august in 1 of bourbons parks the 40 year old victim was shot and killed while on his way to a mosque in eye witnesses say a cyclist shot the man in the back of the head and then fled the scene the slain man's the income also known as tanika it was a georgian citizen who since 2017 had lived in germany as an asylum seeker he had ties to a high profile chechen terrorist in russia and 40 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 beilin cat investigating group which along with german newspaper dish beagle were quick to point the finger at moscow with allegations that russian authorities had helped the assessing create his fake identity economist take it home and told us the evidence presented so far
11:25 pm
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 out work going on where 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 with the script 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
