it's sometimes difficult to be an artist yes especially for one makes a political declaration out of his art that's the case of for that poverty and here we already know and he's just been arrested for setting the door of the former k.g.b. building on fire so it's not clear where the pov linsky will be sent back to russia chucked out of france or whether he will face the music here on those possible criminal charges what we do know is that his political asylum here has become an embarrassment to the french authorities. now the new says the u.s. is creating conditions poor short or medium range missiles in europe and asia that is according to russia's foreign minister in his news briefing at the munich security conference so a lot of rule of also added to that washington is not even hiding its preparations

concerning arms embargo to libya we saw that austria vetoed projects. so the whole project collapsed because oscar was saying that it would be thousands of immigrants entering europe and the european union resolution when he was going to be stopping arms entering the media so we're trying to see cracks in this common i would say what our house and there are a we've been hearing voices recently about people saying that they maybe don't want to depend so much on the u.s. we've seen 2 wars many wars in the x. you thought you know a war kerney going on in the ukraine that means underpin soil and we saw you see in most situations that washington was pulling the strings and i think at that time the european politicians didn't there to washington that they were not to intervene on european soil and it's extremely interesting today to hear that european politicians prominent european politicians are saying that well maybe it's time european the european union take its own future it is future in its own hands and be able to discuss independent. and advisors to the quay prime minister has

deeply upset and lots of people as you can imagine and of course outrage amongst a number of politicians so when dominic cummings put out an advert for weirdos to work in number 10 it turns out he meant supporters of eugenics deeply sinister and use a biscuit should be nowhere near government so biskit describes herself as a political forecaster but following his very public statements and his actions on social media one of which involved deleting tweets where he called a number of female labor m.p.'s it did in many are criticizing his appointment and wondering how on earth he managed to get through an apparently strict government vetting process. so major health is are being raised over what's become one of the west's biggest dumping grounds for electronic waste the african country of garner everything from mobile phones to computers are being burnt they're releasing highly toxic chemicals known to cause deadly diseases including cancer.

canadian psycho interesting best selling author jordan peterson is been receiving detox treatment in russia according to his daughter she spoke to overseas exome a boy. i've had hundreds and hundreds of people reach out telling me they've had the same experience with benzodiazepine so i think that there's a huge misunderstanding about the dangers of physical dependence regarding specifically this class of drugs north america the medical industry is heavily like wow if you go to medical school a lot of the courses you take are backed by the pharmaceutical companies part of the reason we thought russia was a good option is because the medical system here isn't as backed by pharmaceutical companies as it is in north america people who are meaning well go to med school medical school and are perhaps taught by the wrong people and then end up over prescribing because the person they're also peterson also said that have to suffer the next 3 reaction after being prescribed. pills to tackle anxiety that it almost
5:13 pm
cost him his life he prefers his own story. what is the price of living a life like that of jordan peterson a number of emotional breakdowns by the canadian who's become known as the world's top self-help guru have been caught on camera the other comes up to me and said look i've been listening to what you've been seeing for 6 months and it's changed my life and started cleaning up my room and telling the truth just one of frank you for helping me you'd think a widely cited academic and author of a global bestseller explaining how to fix your life wouldn't have any problems with keeping his old in order but lately professor peterson's been in a real trouble with his health this is what his daughter has told us in 2017 there was a really terrible auto immune reaction to it and he went to our family doctor and was prescribed. and he took it for
5:14 pm
a number of weeks and then became physically dependent which we weren't aware of until earlier this year when my mom was diagnosed with terminal cancer his dose of commands and was increased and we realized he was experiencing not only a paradoxical reaction which is when the medication does the opposite of what it's supposed to but he had also become physically dependent so we're trying to get out he tried to get off of that number of time to and just experienced a horrific withdrawal so what's with this medication it's part of a family of drugs commonly known as minor tranquilizers it's generally viewed as c. for an effective for short term use but for long term that's when the ad times real trouble kicks in and he was prescribed an anti-anxiety medication at a low dose it wasn't something that rung any warning bells quickly remind you of who exactly jordan peterson is a professor of psychology at the university of toronto his speeches and interviews
5:15 pm
have attracted tremendous public attention. videos featuring jordan peterson are watched by millions online crowds as big as those that turn out for football matches gather to hear his lectures worldwide but just as much as he inspired some 57 year old professor embittered a full auto army of haters all because of his bid to challenge political correctness the man widely seen as a right wing celebrity is loathed by the left for things like once going against gender neutral pronouns so earlier this month peterson's daughter shocked his followers with this update on his health he's been in unbearable discomfort from the need worse when trying to remove their reaction made him suicidal the peterson family say they had a real hard time finding a place for successful treatment choosing russia as a place to go for health treatment isn't something somebody from north america would usually entails so we looked all over the world for some place that went to.
5:16 pm
a benzodiazepine talks we couldn't really find any place that went to that certainly not in north america coming here is intended to. was our last option really seems to be slowly recovering but will the man who try to hope mankind up with an antidote to chaos be able to find one for all the disorder in and around his own life. well you can watch the full interview with mikhail or peterson on worlds apart on our website at r.t. dot com. a groundbreaking ruling in australia google has been ordered to unmask the identity of an online user he posted a damning review of a dentist the anonymous post warned a teeth whitening service was extremely uncomfortable the dentist says his business was affected as a result although google initially refused to take down the comments the dentists lawyer says that reputations should not be unfairly damaged. i believe it's
5:17 pm
extremely unfair that people are allowed to anonymously attack on is hardworking small businesses we think google has a duty of care to australian small businesses and business is globally for allowing these reviews to go on this ruling is groundbreaking well google has historically argued it's not responsible for user generated content and has only taken down negative posts in the past when ordered to do so by the courts under straightly in law businesses with fewer than 10 employees can see were over statements that could damage a company's reputation r.t. has reached out to google how to comment on this case or more bring you their response when we get it the meantime google has already faced a number of similar cases in australia just this month for example a barrister was awarded half a $1000000.00 over online comments claiming he gave false or misleading advice and then in july last year the tech giant was charged with contempt for failing to
5:18 pm
remove reviews about a business person we put the whole issue up for debate. this guy had one negative review and this is how he wants to get the courts involved you want to put this in google you want to sue the guy i mean just take care of your own business right it's sort of ridiculous and this is also a massive slippery slope how long if we keep up this culture until you're no longer allowed to criticize google itself or if you do you're some other massive corporation also offer free speech by you know it's given people a mask to hide behind and they're not taking responsibility for what's being posted and they are hurting innocent people and this is becoming way too widespread dentist to be comes up is foolish if not a bit unhinged if he thinks the good idea to be going after a troll on the internet now when someone's looking for a dentist their neighborhood they might google this guy and think do i want to go to the guy who's bringing the courts down on the troll on the internet or maybe i'll go to the dentist on the street instead now i don't agree i think that you
5:19 pm
know we are in an environment right now that so divisive and there's these people out there that just love to hate and they're just looking for something and i would be the 1st person to walk in and get teeth whitening from this dentist based on this because i feel very bad for what happened to him and i think we're just in an environment where we have to find a way to make people own the things that they're going to post that this is a probe sort of the free market and just basic social etiquette is solve itself because when you have someone anonymous on the internet they automatically are not taken as seriously as someone who's putting themselves out there i actually have faith in my fellow man that man and woman that they're smart enough and discerning enough to know when something seems a bit off and to know it seems anonymous that maybe you don't take that person as seriously i would love to have faith in people and say you know that we're going to police ourselves and that it's going to stop this problem one of the problems that we have is we have this whole mentality of fake news and this cancel culture where you can completely ruin someone over a personal agenda the longer that we allow people to hide behind their screens and
5:20 pm
be keyboard warriors the. more of this is spinning out of control but we have to find a way to control this the only way to do it is have validated profiles where people have to actually post who they are and there has to be some way to validate it there is a huge problem with defamation with people being had their lives destroyed on the internet but if you start trying to regulate all of this regulation and all of this forcing only goes in one direction but sun power these companies anymore they have so much power why don't we just all decide maybe we don't need to read these reviews on google maybe ask your your friends or family members say i need a dentist you got someone you could recommend maybe that's the way forward 'd because the more we started with these vast complicated companies and the more regulation and speech it's such a spiral and they already have too much power and influence our lives anyway don't they. now after her defeat in the last u.s. presidential election hillary clinton appeared to step back from high level
5:21 pm
politics although there is now growing speculation she could make a surprise for to. love it doesn't mean he will resign a year after so winning so hillary can take over by a back door of the pics hillary as a v.p. running mate would significantly reduce the life expectancy man i would not want my life to be the only thing standing between hillary clinton and her presidency just saying. we are focused on the primary and the debate not v.p. speculation. i know hillary clinton is not flawless no candidate is but she is the right. sure
5:22 pm
yes. it would be foolish to deny the rumor because because bloomberg is common so bizarre legally to the campaign clinton is a more national figure than bloomberg is she has a much larger and level of name recognition she's known by many many more people what's especially telling is it shows the desperation of the democratic party to allow somebody to come in this late and had the d.n.c. to try to push him to the front really turning the whole primary process into a joke i mean this is i mean this is nonsense you know to come into the the entire presidential campaign process after major primaries have already happened it's it's bizarre so yes it is the exact type of long shot desperate type of thing that you
5:23 pm
would do in that type of circumstance. mike bloomberg then maybe trying to face his campaign with a famous name his passing is prying to promote him and the eyes of younger celebrities ditching strong political messages in favor of means of takes into. reaching your audience can be a make or break when it comes to winning an election and 2020 has presented candidates in the u.s. with new challenges like appealing to an online crowd but well. although america's the greatest nation in the world we still face many modern problems. and modern problems require modern solutions and if you wondering what the hell that was well that's i mean pitches spread online they are the newest wrinkle in the big shot political game.
5:24 pm
donald trump has been rocky dragon's daddy as the king of the mean realm and not only his presidential crown but he's virtual one too is now in jeopardy the democrats have mean squads fighting on their side to bernie sanders has bernie bros a grassroots fun base photoshopping his face in the name of humanity elizabeth warren now has a war in me team which is posting some weird stuff like this and lo and behold michael bloomberg is entering the ring. how do you follow kids' life but bloomberg scum pain team is dead serious about their intentions
5:25 pm
while a mean strategy may be due to presidential politics we're betting it will be in fact a component to reach people where they are it could be it was president trump's powerful digital operation is already spent more than $300000000.00 on advertising and that's an odd $100000000.00 more than all of his democratic rivals combined and there are plenty of people eager to take bloomberg millions to get him online attention. hello juice boys can you post the original mean to make me look cool for the upcoming democratic primary i don't think so to be honest your vibe is kind of put lamborghini door on the escalate.

5:27 pm
but when it comes time to convince the voters that's what matters. he will say thanks for the company tonight time to get away spending stories on our website at a. place where. the kind of good intentions of a teacher's go to are christian and maybe even 40 years ago simply evaporated into notes of the compressor with the 5. we're still in an era of resource colonialism again this is a big risk and the one big thing that could really inhibit the kind of electric
