realize that we were being targeted by the mafia. this is arch international thanks for joining us as we talk through the biggest stories of the patient. and that start with this one monday marks the beginning of the road to the white house for us democrats candidates are reading to do battle in the state of iowa a caucus vote that's proven influential in deciding who runs for president and is the candidate is just full for a shot at the oval office outside the un socialist bernie sanders is leading the way in terms of donors and joint front runner in the polls the iowa caucus is the start of primaries on is usually a litmus test for what's to come for example bill and hillary clinton went on from victory and i want to run as the democrats counter that as did barack obama and ahead of the vote later this. monday here's what the latest polls indicate bunnie

saunders shares a surprise lead with former vice president joe biden the other 25 percent leaving behind the centrist hopefuls far behind artie's canuck morgan reports on why washington might be wary of a sanders victory. the iowa caucuses are upon us and monday as the 1st primary contest takes place and jaws are dropping because the front runner isn't one of the sexy centrists favored by the d.n.c. but an elderly socialist from vermont 2 is technically not even a democrat but a registered independent can imagine any woman watching last night and saying i believe bernie i think people believe has been running bernie sanders against trump would be an act of insanity so to have him just flat out say no i think wasn't it wasn't nearly enough to address that for the women watching bernie can't win according to the new york times bernie sanders is surging ahead because he has an

enthusiastic base of supporters who are attracted to his left of center agenda mr saunders insurance and his apparent roys in the earliest primary and caucus states reflects both the loyalty of his core support says and their conviction that mr saunders would bring the same fighting resilience to the general election even now as mr saunders takes the lead in the 1st 2 states his opponents have not delivered a sustained argument against his candidacy and remain reluctant to take him home bernie sanders describes himself as a democratic socialist and socialism is supposed to be a dirty word in the united states but not so much anymore polls show that younger people are not so hostile to the term and are far more critical of free market policies and austerity c.n.n. is certainly no fan of bernie sanders a paid contributor is even happy to admit it i hope that my networks clear bias against bernie sanders will convince citizens of all idiology state corporate media
9:04 am
figures overwhelmingly for sake journalism in favor of blatant activism oddly president trump has had mixed things to say about the front runner in the rival party which bernie well. it will be interesting to see how he does i think what happened to bertie. they be was that so many so i think he was taken advantage of he really great 4 years ago. and he was done treated with respect by clinton those wounds from 2016 are certainly open and sore among bernie's core supporters leaked e-mails revealed that the d.n.c. was working overtime to deprive him of the nomination it's not just those mainstream t.v. networks or the leaders of the democratic party this former assistant director of the f.b.i. actually admitted that for years this federal agency actually works to keep people like bernie sanders from taking office the electorate in some places is putting more and more progressive than self described socialist in positions one of the
9:05 am
missions of the f.b.i. in its counterintelligence efforts was to try and keep these people out of government he wasn't joking either the f.b.i. is cointelpro program worked to isolate left wing groups and keep them from gaining any influence one radical group called the socialist workers party actually sued the f.b.i. and spent a decade in court proving that their rights were violated court proceedings revealed that the f.b.i. had planted fake news stories infiltrated the organization broken into offices and even had members arrested on false charges all in the hopes of weakening the socialists at the ballot box bernie sanders was at one point a registered elector for the socialist workers party he campaigned for them amid the harassment and legal battles so it's pretty safe to say the f.b.i. has been on d.m. for some time with so much working against him bernie sanders seems to be pulling ahead getting more donations than any other candidate and his rallies are packed full of young people who were attracted to his message of cancelling student debt
9:06 am
and guaranteeing health care with a 2020 primaries in full swing many observers are asking themselves can bernie sanders really pull this off. r.t. new york. political commentator to gave us his take on why the democrats might be trying to shut the door. i think you see a lot of these people who within the democratic party would rather see another trump presidency than would see rather see a socialist or a substitute describe socialist or anyone really to the left of joe biden become president if you look at the last primary campaign where bernie sanders ran against hillary clinton there was definitely an underhanded campaign to undermine his own campaign and whether it be true superdelegates or backroom deals there was a lot that went on that really stripped bernie sanders of any of his power and you see a lot of this playing out today and you see these random attacks that other candidates
9:07 am
such as elizabeth warren joe biden and people who get good a judge have come out attacking bernie sanders because he represents a different wing of the democratic party and you know a lot of polls show that joe biden and hillary clinton these people who feel as though the election is owed to them don't have very high approval ratings they're not very much liked because they represent the a savage meant in the in the voters' mind of the same movements that have left them behind all these years and it seems but his camp isn't hiding yet discontent with the democratic leadership by the progressive an outspoken congresswoman recent italy has been facing a backlash after encouraging a crowd to busan just 2016 rival hillary clinton let's take a quick look at that instead from a campaign rally. week when someone by the name of hillary clinton in said that nobody we're not going to do we're not going to we're classy here no no i'll. clinton supporters were quick to attack to me on twitter who in her move white
9:08 am
males great job despite the fact that the congresswoman is of palestinian origin and of course is a woman santas is to cut loose to leave from his campaign as a result she did later give an apology of sorts saying that clinton's comments got the better of her but looking back to 2016 it didn't seem quite so bad when the shoe was on the other foot. do we hate bernie sanders no i don't hate anybody bernie could have endorsed you quicker and had credit being hurt me there's no doubt about it here i mean he was in congress for yes he had one senate to support him nobody likes him nobody wants to work with him he got nothing done and then actually go yeah well free college for everyone stick in the hollow and then when you say well wait a minute it will make their money going to come from them what about you against free college you are not right now what you have in the democratic party is essentially $2.00 incompatible parties one is the party of a sensually a group of people that is indistinguishable from neo conservatives these are people
9:09 am
who want perpetual war these are people who want a lot of government spending on those traditional areas then joined to that you have a group of essentially young socialists that have a totally different agenda now the democrat moderates and the democrat socialists they don't they're not they're not a compared they're not compatible groups they're an uneasy alliance that's going to fall apart at the slightest amount of pressure that's always going to be at each other's throats because they are not compatible in any way whatsoever. thanks story for the last 24 hours reports say that i still is claiming responsibility for sunday stoppings in south london although it's not given any evidence of yet 2 people why injured in the assault before the perpetrator was shot dead by police it's also much that the attacker had time in prison for terror related offenses but was released before having completed the full sentence shot
9:10 am
dead with daschle reports from london. well terror 'd has now come to the streets of london for a 2nd time in just 2 months and already i so have claimed responsibility for the incident that occurred on stratton's high street just last night but there were similarities between this latest incident and the last terror attack that happened on london bridge one of which is of course the very fact that both us. aliens who are wearing a hoax device on their chest before being shot dead by police officers at the scene the 2nd month potentially more controversial is in fact that both of them were released early from prison for serving sentences related to terror offenses now the government is already outlining its response to the latest incident but boris johnson has already reiterated that he wants to bring forward legislation to stop and prevent this early release from prison for convicted terrorists but all he isn't stress is that it could be quite complex to do so the problems we have with
9:11 am
reeducating and reclaiming and rehabilitating people who succumb to islam is a very very hard and very talk and it can happen but the instances of success are really very few and we need to be frank about that and we need to think about how we handle that you know in our criminal justice system so 20 year old suit a man he only served half of his sentence it was a full sentence of 3 and a half years but he was in fact released early terror offenses including possessing and distributing bomb making material not his mother though obvious that her son was actually radicalized within the prison system and therefore the questions are raised when it comes to that but other issues too including the fact that at the time of the incident a man was actually under close police surveillance in fact 2 officers were trailing behind him so many argue how could this incident have happened under police watch well london massive car he says that immediate urgent answers need to be questioned
9:12 am
by the government so that it's a question i've got for from for the government to ration to what they're doing to keep us safe i'll give you some examples we know there are some to your people who have been convicted of a tour of france and have been released from prison what are the government doing to make sure that they are not a danger to the public because roughly speaking people conviction of terrorism in. prison snell what are we doing to make sure they've been punished and reformed rather than be the recipients of radicalization where prisons are universe of crime rather than proper properly but i decided quite worried erosion to the government's response well police are currently searching the hostel and it's now under an intense investigation to see if there are any other clues as to how indeed an incident like this could have happened of course many other questions and needed to be answered particularly the fact that how could a convicted terrorist that's been released just days before was how was he able to carry out such an incident on london's streets
9:13 am
a yet again terrorism is indeed in the spotlight in the capital. well to delve deeper into the story let's cross live to talk to david gallo who's a terrorism expert and senior research fellow at leeds back university in the u.k. david welcome i mean all the latest development of course is that i saw has claimed responsibility in your opinion do you think that's the case or is it easy to make that kind of claim without providing any evidence i think it's quite easy for the group to make this claim they've done it for many years you know even from going back to nice berlin. all around the globe where there's been an auction were certainly a person you believed to be acting on their own you just to be doing this inspired by the. narratives that they follow. to play much but i do know that there are more and more important issues that come out from this it's. one thing i want to talk to one of the issues maybe that you could be referring to is that that
9:14 am
has been quite a lot of criticism from the top down of the british justice system and of the jail system as well for example there are claims that inmates are actually being radicalized in jail in fact the suspects the perpetrators mother says he was radicalized in belmarsh prison itself not the justified criticism. well 1st of all of these. because i get some context that i mean a man seemed to have been deeply get more and more deeply imbued with me as a missed narrative before he he resents his for his previous conviction for which he was released but you know that there is an issue when it is a big concern in u.k. prisons i think not just the u.k. i think of the states out of this too you see that in france we've seen it in other states where there is a degree of radicalization going on within prisons and it's not just the islamist cause we're seeing this with the extreme far right of the u.k.
9:15 am
is the only country to have prescribes tows groups for extreme far right groups that the neo nazis and we have about $38.00 of those prisoners are already convicted so that is an issue and i think that's where the prevent strategy here which neil basu was really encouraging to to perhaps looking redeveloped would come in very very useful in prisons that it should apply but i think it should be certainly those who are on the periphery or those who are likely to be drawn towards it i think that's that's an important step to take in the future we know that the attack was known to the police there's also information that that a more than 200 other inmates current in the u.k. on similar charges and that also due for release i mean how is it possible that given these terrorists terror attacks that these charges people are still even being considered for release well it's ovaltine it's a legal issue and 22 of the. legal aid. they
9:16 am
started to take the. presence of public sex orgies the needs of that there was that it did set. and. so that's what i just say they must have been a part of. that some. of. and of course prior to that too it's. just a. result 3 parties they though they may want to a point the finger at each other but the boy had a hand in the culpability of this and it does need reform and i mean that you cited potus johnson those talking earlier proceed to tell the u.k. home secretary she was talking about yesterday and that we could go of introducing a new piece of legislation to to try and stop this because you've got some individuals who would send a similar so deeply imbued. to how this sort of ridiculous situation is really seen
9:17 am
with a man quite clearly who's was was keen to carry out attacks i mean he's been out for a week and he's under close police surveillance that shows you the risk that they were showing him in there's a $3000.00 individuals who are specified interest and of those risks a risk assessment is made and someone more are followed so close like a moan was so that's that's how ridiculous the situation of of the law is at the moment doesn't reform you mentioned that a man was being closely monitored we know that he was being tailed in fact by 2 individuals so it just shows you how much manpower is simply needed to monitor this number of people who are on a watch list i mean in your opinion does the u.k. have the resources to do it let alone do it properly. yes i think. they have. but obviously then what we've seen is i mean certainly with counterterrorism police in the u.k. they have seated the totes like at the rose. levels
9:18 am
by 20000 but what we did is. the workload of those officers involved and. maybe i'll just put some perspective on yesterday just. as a knife it's very easy to start stabbing someone within seconds. and injuring people whose shoes your house without response was yes they buy those off from the much public place that said i in my opinion said he saved for the lies and so that the rich would. make well that was thank you that was dr david our terrorism expert meantime many of thanks for your time on your insight. the break we take a look at selected attempts by the italian mafia to deform picayune millions of yours sit tight.
9:19 am
shots seemed wrong. why don't we all just don't. let me. get to shape out these days become educated and in gains from it equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. let's talk about 20th century socialism this is when governments made mal investments and then they bailed out those mal investments until the economy went bankrupt versus 21st century capitalism this is when banks make malinvestment they when they go bad they bail out the malinvestment and the cycle continues until the economy goes bust and those who are are.
9:20 am
welcome back talk he says it's who watched retaliatory attacks against the syrian government forces often 6 of its minute treat personnel were killed and war ravaged problems on monday according to the russian defense minister ankara had not notified the other parties to the conflict of the troop movement a claim it denies don't of course have brings us the details. well a syrian war monitor is now reporting that 13 syrian soldiers were killed after turkey's unannounced incursion into the syrian region of it was there that turkish troops came under artillery fire by syrian government forces just hours after
9:21 am
a turkish military convoy crossed the border now syrian troops are currently engaged in a renewed offensive and it against the last stronghold of militants in the country but turkey's president says that this campaign is actually in violation of a ceasefire treaty that they had previously. i want to tell the russian authorities that our interlocutor here is not to you but the syrian regime and do not stand in our way or no one claims that a number of turkish troops were killed in this incursion and that the number of wounded was actually higher than previously reported he also says that the turkish military already retaliated with air strikes involving f. 16 s on syrian military positions according to him between 30 and 35 syrian servicemen were quote neutralized but the russian reconciliation center had quite a different account of what happened the u.s. space over the deescalation zone is being constantly controlled by russian aerospace forces planes did not violate the syrian state border and there were no
9:22 am
attacks on syrian troops the so far we've heard no reaction from the syrian government and we're left with 2 very different versions of what happened from russia and turkey. your opinion funds are being harvested by an unexpected source often investigation has claimed the sicilian mafia has been defaulting a block of billions of euros through follow on subsidies shouted to bensky looks into the mob 21st century tactics. regs it may be officially done and dusted but for the even the headache of trying to balance its books without the u. case contribution is only just beginning no one the area that has been earmarked is farm subsidies to support agriculture and livestock breeding at a cost of around $60000000000.00 euro every year it's the biggest expense for the e.u. and while farmers are up in arms at the me hint their subsidies could be about to
9:23 am
change it seems the eve has been accidentally blowing the budget for the last decade not on farmers but would you believe it the mafia. example in a farmer who's also a neighbor asked me to lease out my land to him that would allow him to obtain e.u. community funds and to grace's flock obviously i replied no no a week later the house you see behind me was heavily damaged by austin. and that if we wanted to bring about an eco village community a landowner an elderly gentleman of land and redox on one evening and identified people sneaked onto the property and cut all the beams on the roof making it unfit for use then they destroyed the whole property by setting everything on fire we
9:24 am
kind of join the dots together and realised that we were being targeted by the mafia they were interested in our land because farmers receive money based on the amount of land they hold so the more land you have the more you can ask for european funds. the problem was so bad at times honest farmers stopped a bidding finning land giving the mafia. free reign to suck up any other land could be used to claim subsidies and as e.u. subsidies are based on possession of land rather than what's produced on the land there was no need for the mafia to do anything but to sit back and count the money so much the clowns could rent land for next to nothing and claim subsidies at a much higher rate ok so you think surely some technocratic usually visits the farms and casts annoy you what's going on right. local
9:25 am
authorities should develop their own system matthew reviews the book to check up on european funds the size of judicial one currently this review is carried out only on paper but actually there are not any real checks on the funds and whether they arrive in the territory. in some cases the forward was a brazen applications were made for land not owned by the applicant others were made for people who were not even a lawyer and although the scam has not been unveiled with 94 arrests so far only 2 matthew families have been implicated the problem could be much worse it's also clear that this type of war does not restrict it to just sicily italy similar claims about mafia gangs fleecing the e.u. have been made in slovakia and romania it's thought these investigations in sicily could now lead to changes elsewhere in the e.u.
9:26 am
but many will be questioning why it's taken so long for this type of fraud to be unearthed and why the e.u. has been allowing itself to be milked for so long. r.t. paris. or we part ways some news from around the world in brief now starting in france where yellow 1st protests descended into violence in the south of the country over the weekend. if you. clashes were focused around the central square in the city of. what $1000.00 people stood their ground for around 4 hours riot police used tear gas and water cannon also made $21.00 of us purchased movement has been active for $64.00 weeks now originally against fuel tax hikes but really the rally has become a broader platform for anti government demonstrations. meanwhile dozens of migrants plastered posters to
9:27 am
a fence on the us mexico border before burning an effigy of president donald trump on sunday the protests marked 172 years since the signing of the treaty of guadalupe hidalgo which ended the mexican war and expanded the size of the us demonstrators also demanded that washington return mexican territory lost in the $1848.00 treaty. and condemning america's peace plan for the israel palestine conflict hundreds have gathered outside the u.s. embassy in lebanon donald trump revealed the plan last week to a wave of criticism for it being too biased to israel it would give the country total control of jerusalem the palestinian borders and of the privileges some of the rally tried to break through the embassies security fences others threw stones at the offices. from me but if you still want more odd to you dot com is the place for you so check it out all sit tight for crosstalk on how the e.u. and u.k. fell out of love.
