on fire you know we kind of join the dots together and realized that we were being targeted by the mafia. every hour on the hour this is our international thanks for joining us this monday . monday marks the beginning of the road to the white house for us democrats counted it's already being to do back to in the state of iowa a caucus that's proven influential in deciding who runs for president and as the candidates just pull for a shot at that oval office outside to i'm socialist buddy saunders is leading the way in terms of donors and is also a joint front runner in the polls now the iowa caucus is the start of primaries and usually a litmus test for what's to come for example both bill and hillary clinton went on from victory and i want to run as the democrats' candidates as did. both yes' and

the head of the boat mates had this monday here's what the nato polls are showing bodies on the show as a surprise to meet with former vice president joe biden and the 25 percent poll but leaving behind up the centrist hopefuls atif caleb maupin reports on why washington might be a bit wary of a scientist victory. the iowa caucuses are upon us and monday is the 1st primary contest takes place in jaws are dropping because the front runner isn't one of the sexiest centrists favored by the d.n.c. but an elderly socialist from vermont too is technically not even a democrat but a registered independent can't 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
11:03 am
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 supporters 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 on 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 who convinced the dissidents of only ideology that
11:04 am
corporate media figures overwhelmingly for so you could 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 i think what happened to bertie. they be was that so nice i think he was taken advantage of a 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
11:05 am
more and more progressive than self described socialist in positions one of the 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 works 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 socialist 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
11:06 am
full of young people who are attracted to his message of cancelling student debt and guaranteeing health care for the 2020 primaries in full swing many observers are asking themselves can bring sanders will really pull this off a little up and our 2 new york political commentator dakota liddy talk to toss about why the democrats might be trying to shut the door on saunders 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 sorts to 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 and there was definitely an underhanded campaign to undermine his own campaign and whether it be true superdelegates were backroom deals there was a lot that went on that really stripped bernie sanders of money into his power and you see a lot of this playing out today and you see these random attacks that other candidates
11:07 am
such as elizabeth warren and joe biden and people who get to 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 like because they represented a sound which meant in the in the voters' minds of the same movements that have left them behind all these years and it seems bernie is camp isn't hiding its discontent with the democratic leadership by the progressive outspoken congresswoman rushing to to the past been facing a backlash after encouraging a crowd to booth august 26th rival hillary clinton let's take a look at that incident which happened from a compan 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 oh i hope.
11:08 am
clinton supporters were quick to attack to leap on twitter calling her move white male rage and massage despite the congresswoman being of palestinian origin and obviously a woman saunders is being cut loose 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 now i don't hate anybody bernie could have endorsed you quicker i could have been aren't me there is no doubt about it hear me 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 middle and then when you say well wait a minute where the money going to come from then 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
11:09 am
a group of people that is indistinguishable from neo conservatives these are people 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. let's head to the u.k. now because police officials that have revealed that the man behind sunday's knife attack in south london had soft time in prison for terror when they too defensive on was being closely monitored by the authorities the assailant went to 2 people in the assault before he was shot dead by armed off says such it was dashed he brings
11:10 am
us up to date. well terror has now come to the streets of london for a 2nd time in just 2 months and already i saw 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 assailants were wearing a hoax device on their chest before being shot dead by police officers at the scene the 2nd month and controversial is in fact the 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 birth 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 reeducating and
11:11 am
reclaiming rehabilitating people who succumb to islam is a very very hard and very talk and it can happen with the instances of success are really very few and we need to be frank about that we do think about how we handle that you know in our criminal justice system so 20 year olds. only served half of his sentence it was a full sentence of 3 and a half years but he was in fact released terror offenses including possessing and distributing bomb making material now his mother though argues 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 he says that immediate urgent answers need to be questioned by the
11:12 am
government. so that's a question i've got for all 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 torah fence and have been released from prison what are the government doing to make sure that they are not a danger to the public with the roughly speaking truth of plus people conviction of terrorism in prisons nell what are we doing to make sure they're being 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 but well police have been searching the hostel where it is believed that the stratum attacker has been living over the past few days that many questions have come into play particularly how a convicted terrorist could cause such an atrocity just days after being released from prison but of course this latest incident is just one of many over the last few years that have been carried out by
11:13 am
a salience known by the intelligence and security services. on terrorism expert that's dr david you know thinks that the u.k. is not the only country facing the issue of radicalization in prison a man seen to be deeply get more and more deeply imbued with the is the missed
11:14 am
narrative before he was sentenced for his previous committee. with you was released . that there is an issue and it is a big concern in the u.k. prisons i think not just the you can think of the states out of this too we've seen it in france we've seen it in other states where there is a degree of radicalization going on within presence of all 3 parties they may want to work a point the finger at each other but they've all had a hand in the culpability of this and it does need reform and not some individuals who are terrorists it was so deeply imbued. but to have this sort of ridiculous situation as we seen with the keys to quite clearly was was was keen to carry out attacks he's been out for a week and he's under close police surveillance that shows you the risk they were showing i mean this is a 3000 individuals who are specified interest on all of those risks or risk assessment is made in. the united states environmental protection agency has
11:15 am
sparked outrage over its decision to ease chemical plant safety regulations now 14 states up and down the country are preparing to file lawsuits saying the ruling is putting public safety at risk. to trump the e.p.a. is cutting critical safeguards against explosions fi's poisonous gas releases and other accidents and this facilities accident prevention is a top priority of the e.p.a. and this rule promotes improve coordination between chemical facilities and emergency responders and reduces unnecessary regulatory burdens now back in december the agency rolled back amendments to the chemical disaster rule which came into force during brac obama's time in office after a series of incidents the latest changes have been criticized they feel lucky proper protection outside orders for example have been dropped so too have tech safety checks and strict and much of the requirements many fit will lead to more accidents and in fact just 2 days off to the changes were made
11:16 am
a huge explosion shook a chemical plant in texas. they have dropped along with regulation in the last 2 or 3 years because you go to grover because you know you know. i don't know if this particular you should be in your cobra movie the lowering of. regulations you de graw. i really don't know if. we stay in a state where there's nothing but chemical plants and oil fields and stuff like that so you never know how close or how far he might be to get it and if those rules of pool but there is no regulation they can do whatever they want and pretty much everybody knows that a big business if you have enough money to make stuff disappear with a regulation going to. the way these people are they don't mess with the cows they mislead you know truly billions of dollars so i mean. mining made the world go
11:17 am
around. that actually to apply purple or no worse the code to kill career employees would plan it out of. the way in which you know safety has always been a concern and we know the risk factors in the area i think it's one of those thank you just hope it never really. richard starr and i is the international advisor on offshore oil environmental wrist he believes that the role puts everyone in danger there's no question that deregulating these high risk industries such as chemical plants petroleum birth
11:18 am
fineries offshore oil and gas operations increases the risk out. safety risk environmental risk and catastrophic risk to the people living around these industrial activities and that's in nobody's interest it's not in the public's interest certainly and it's not in the industry interest either because of the enormous price tag that comes with that i suspect the political operatives at the top of the e.p.a. which are directly from industry and the trump administration would suggest that. that it will improve and improve. public safety and such like that by reducing regulatory burdens and such like that that's absurd if they can't meet these very reasonable public safety and environmental regulatory standards and then they're not doing the best and safest technology standard that we know we need to hold them to so it's it's an absurd contention by the political operatives that the e.p.a.

still has taken up my lead to attack by putting my cats to for the view of millions here i think and i suspect. the pope says. he put themselves on the line they did accept the reject. so would you want to be president and she. wanted. to go right to be close with what would before 3 of them or can't be good. interested always in the water. let's talk about 20th century socialism this is when governments made mal investments and then they bailed out those mal investments and so the economy went
11:20 am
bankrupt versus 21st century capitalism this is one banks make malinvestment they when they go bad they bail out the malinvestment and that cycle continues until the economy goes bust and that's where our. bach talk says it's you know want to tell you terry attacks against syrian government forces off to fix all of its miniature personnel were killed and at the present problems on monday according to the russian defense ministry i'm not notified the other parties to the conflict of the truth but a claim it denies don't quite up brings us the details. well
11:21 am
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 a turkish military convoy crossed the border now syrian troops are currently engaged in a renewed offensive in italy against the last stronghold of militants in the country but turkey's president says that this campaign is actually in violation of a cease fire treaty that they had previously. i want to tell the russian authorities that our interlocutor here is not you but the syrian regime and do not stand in our way or to 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 airspace over the deescalation zone is being constantly controlled by russian aerospace forces planes did not violate the syrian state border and there were no 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 the. european union funds are being harvested by an unexpected source after an investigation has claimed the sicilian mafia has been defaulting the block of millions of euros through farmland subsidies seanad to pinsky now looks into the mobs 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 now one 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 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 of a farmer who's also a neighbor asked me to lease out my land to him that would allow him to obtain community funds and to grace's flock obviously our plight known a week later the house you see behind me was heavily damaged by arson. when the if we wanted to bring about an eco village community

a landowner an elderly gentleman. 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 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 roll the what's produced on the land there was no need for the mafia to do anything but to sit back and count the money
11:25 am
so much here clans could rent land for next to nothing and claim subsidies i don't much higher rate ok so you think surely some technocratic usually visits the farms and castes annoyer what's going on right. local authorities should develop their own system as you refused to check up on european funds the size that you issue and 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 alive 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 before does not restrict it to
