a feeling that the government is corrupt. interests before the. government is corrupt. they're tired of it i think is going to get elected again. there are two publicly known cases against netanyahu in the first his wife and he alleged to have accepted illicit gifts tobacco and alcohol from a hollywood billionaire luxurious champagne for the lady and fine cigars for the gentleman case number two netanyahu reportedly struck a deal with a major newspaper where in return for more favorable coverage he would weaken a rival newspaper using his office and powers as prime minister serious allegations stuff like this has put people in jail you think bebe's scared
11:03 am
if there will be recommendations by police to endure so here's a fact i doubt the public knows the vast majority of police recommendations in with nothing more than sixty percent of police recommendations are thrown out here of course denies everything just like his predecessor who would or met also denied ever taking bribes even as he was handcuffed and convoyed off to jail bibi doesn't care elise can recommend whatever they want it's only if the state prosecutors decide to act will he face trouble and he seems sure they won't they knew a year ago even before the investigation why did it take a year and a waste of time and public funds there's more of course questions about netanyahu has connections how b.b.c. cousin ended up in the middle of a controversial billion dollar deal to buy german submarines you know how these
11:04 am
things happen but isn't it amazing how a man can be so flippant about corruption allegations against him and so righteous about corruption allegations against him. others bridgie reunions are pouring into the streets they seek freedom they seek justice i wish the iranian people success in their noble quest for freedom and you know. the support. against the corrupted rich you can you learn but you try to manipulate. criticism against what is really. a corrupt government police is still months away from issuing an official recommendation on whether to try to netanyahu or not but the bees allies as striking back they've passed through
11:05 am
legislation that would be the police for making any public recommendations on whether people should be taken to court that's in yahoo's survivor israel's longest serving prime minister he has weathered and survived plenty of scandals and next time this law will make it even easier under the israeli law the prime minister does not have to resign even if he is indicted and even when he's standing trial all of the after he has been convicted in a certain district court in jerusalem and after he's appeal has been denied by the high court which could take two years or so but this is only beleaguered point from b. public and political point of view there will be a lot of pressure on him to resign or at least step aside for
11:06 am
a while once he's indicted. until the media's been obsessing over donald trump mental health or alleged lack of speculation the u.s. president has a psychological problems has been driven by a new book about trump's white house caught fire and theory although the author says he can't be sure if all parts of it are true it led to a heated exchange between tran theni a policy adviser and c.n.n. host. because you have arrested a twenty four hours of negative and hysterical coverage on this network that lead in recent weeks to some spectacularly embarrassing false report i think the word that i can answer to you know is that if you are as are entitled to have my three months of the truth why don't you just give me three minutes to tell you the truth about donald trump that i know and all of our campaigns because i want to show and i don't want to do that in the toxic environment that you've created here in c.n.n. cable news which is a real crisis of legitimacy for your network and we saw it of course with the
11:07 am
extremely fake news you reported about the don jr and wiki leak story it was a huge embarrassment for your network even just like the huge embarrassment you had when you got the komi testimony wrong stephen i'm trying to get if you're going to present to me which a lot of people and i'm getting to the issue of you're not going to. meanwhile for my chief strategist has expressed regret of a comments of his that were included in the. my comments were aimed at pool manifolds a seasoned campaign professional with experience and knowledge of how the russians operate to read through those comments. i regret that my delay in responding to the inaccurate reporting regarding judaism has diverted attention from the president's historical accomplishments in the first year of his presidency i don't think this has much impact on the president going forward i think it just shows that there's a few people that he has put itself around that he may need to take a second look at steve bannon was one of and that's already done if you look at this book this is the biggest bout of fake news we've seen in
11:08 am
a long time they quoted the fact that donald trump didn't know who john boehner our former speaker of the house was he played golf with him he was the speaker of the house for four months when trump began his campaign so i think steve bannon if you look at what he's really doing here the agenda of steve bannon is to run for president right of a large bit of political action committee and that's why i got fired i think steve bannon was pro trump until he got a taste of the power that they came with president trump and then he became pro steve bannon he was doing interviews he seemed to go rogue i think this is all about steve bannon and his agenda and i think he lost the thought that he was damaging trump who he helped get elected in a tweet trump said he's have to put up with fake news ever since he announced his bid for the presidency and then now he was having to deal with a fake book earlier he also promised to announce a special award for a fake news the ceremony was scheduled for this monday but now it's been postponed
11:09 am
the next week. nothing gives you more credibility than donald trump calling you a liar i of course don't want to get snow. crazy probably. lazy. the people that make
11:10 am
up stories over the montrose crazy police is. mentally ill too that he is mentally unstable i'm not going to give you a question you speak or you are fake you do as if it is potentially temperamentally unfit for the office he holds ran for president one time in one united states president donald trump is pushing back against allegations that he's mentally fit. or went to the best colleges were called. last trump and the us media do basle of a fake news one piece of misinformation has caught them off on the american social media a man called hunter fish it was giving an interview to a local t.v. but janet spat didn't believe he had given them his real name here's how he describes what happened he stopped me randomly in the crowd and at the end of the interview he asked for a name and for me to spell it out which i did and he kind of had a little bit of
11:11 am
a look of disbelief but with all the. davies and how crazy it was i left pretty rapidly i got interviewed and i knew that i would get my five seconds of fame on t.v. so are scouring the internet looking for the shot and when i pulled it up it it said benjamin holcomb instead of my name and so i was a little bit confused and decided to take a screenshot of it and put it on the internet i wasn't as insulted as as much as i thought it was funny my name is always kind of been a talking point with all my friends and family and yeah you could probably guess that my mother definitely has a good sense of humor for deciding that that would be a good name it's a catchy name but. i wasn't insulted i thought it was kind of funny. that a story either twists with his friends but what he didn't know was that it would go viral and prompt many online.
11:12 am
it kind of blew up way fast i was not expecting it at all like i said it really was just for my friends who kind of knew me and knew my name was obscure my small group of friends really and then when it took off happen fast my phone was buzzing off the hook with notifications i was googling it and found it on a lot of different sites and i'd never her ever anticipated my five seconds of fame on a smaller news network to now this interview on russian television. new coalition talks have kicked off in germany and was seen as angela merkel's last chance to form a majority government and avoid yet another election the social democrats and the ruling christian democratic union will now have five days to enter into a so-called grand coalition both sides seem confident of success forming an alliance with the social democrats is the only option left for angela merkel of the
11:13 am
previous coalition talks with the green party and the free democrats collapsed two months ago the current political crisis is being seen by some as the worst in germany for a year is it betraying sizes that merkel's chances of resolving it to put together a coalition it takes a match angle has been desperate to make any match she hoped her party could match with the greens but that plan also required matching with the or the free democrats or rights why appear to. but i know it's a match pop ups angle almost got it right with the green party but she still in favor of using coal power plus her transport minister in the old government called the greens tofu that has fallen into our meets when it comes to the f d t these
11:14 am
folks were nowhere near matching with deep divisions and how to deal with tax and solemn and environmental policies. we will not abandon our foreign policy with which we are not convinced it is better not to govern than to govern badly so that was it for the so called to make a call the talks. one guy quit using the coalition building up all together but then signed up again. we are not entering a grand coalition we said this clearly in this room after the elections and we still stand by this. time politics and that's why these tools necessary to meet the great challenges facing the world europe. so angle crossed paths with her part there swipe left or swipe right the conservative leader is having another go at matching with the social democrats but here again angle
11:15 am
may find herself matchless here's why. migration was much less of an issue in twenty third thing when agreeing on the c.d.u. s.p.d. grand coalition was no sweat today it's one of the main if not the number one issue for germans to worry about the success of the right wing force the conservative blog to get more tough on asylum seekers something the social democrats refuse to accept. instead what they'd love to accept actually push for is more integration after all the s.p.d. leader wants to see the knighted states of europe and while angle as c.d.u. is more hazard and varian wing of her block is turning increasing the euro skeptic you don't invite hungary's leader slash. viktor orban to a party summit for nothing. then there's the issue of how much to spend on the
11:16 am
army the conservatives are seeking more military spending to reach the nato target of two percent of g.d.p. the social democrats though say that's not what germany needs if eventually these things are nuff to cause a mismatch angle of merkel may end up in real trouble but as the prospects of yet another election looms recent opinion polls show more than half of germans are against knuckle running again earlier we stated political analyst rana rothfuss he believes everyone is much more likely than paper think the trust in the great question is beginning to diminish quite considerably german population there is already much of a majority of people calling for new elections as recent polls have showed a good negotiator would have seen much earlier that one of the three or four or
11:17 am
even negotiating parties was why i'm to represent different points that were gathered to flow with mission and obviously i'm going work and failed at that point she did not realize how bad the situation was perceived liberals i can imagine that were. replaced even if there are new elections already in twenty eight. the vice president of the german bund this dog recently said he was in favor of limiting the chancellor's term in office to eight or ten years is calling it the hardest job in the country and amid the political uncertainty some are speculating marco may not run again if the latest coalition talks fail and the media has already lined up potential successors.
11:18 am
what is a don't for on the right start. well have any of you ever seen a circus with a flat roof. are
11:19 am
you an expert in german wine. spending if we were to do why you tell us now yes it's pretty easy to distinguish between brad i am quite right. so it's come on r.t. international the us army has created a shooting simulation game for teachers and a bid to help the most effectively manage gun violence in schools we've got more on that after this break. i played for many clubs over the years so i know the game inside out. the ball isn't only about what happens on the pitch put the final school it's about the passion from the fans it's the age of the superman each kill the narrowness and spending two hundred twenty million and one player. it's an experience like nothing else i want to because i want to share what i think of what i know about the
11:20 am
beautiful guy a great so well paul chimes for. the base this minute. our corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely and the measure of their heads up saudi arabia these days is as corrupt as the day is long and he's just stealing money from folks with this right to be at it but america is like that's reform meanwhile ok already there actually are in the process of reform but that's about evil. now the u.s. army on the department of homeland security has developed a virtual reality training game meant to simulate active shooter situations in schools is intended for teachers and first responders helping them stay ahead of
11:21 am
a potential tragedy. the feeling. that have been more than two hundred fifty school shootings in the u.s. in the past five years that averages at nearly one per week already this new year we have seen a two reported firearm incidents in schools nearly a third of all mushy meetings in the u.s. since the year two thousand have taken place in schools here's a reminder of some of the deadliest.
11:22 am
we all through experts just how effective this new school shooting simulator may be in helping fix up the problem. we have to really understand that we do live in a day and age when children are going to have to understand this at a younger age than we would have liked then we were probably raised with and because of that you know it is good to utilize technology in order to train them to either defend themselves against it or defend others against it and just to be ready for it because sometimes the worst things will happen when children or a those and it's a choice should have absolutely no idea how to handle what is happening in the group by teachers with at least some information in order to prepare any addend
11:23 am
that they're actually use and so on their school and what that does is it is assumed that the assaults will come there will be more socks and dare i say this there will be there will be more shooting there will be more bashing in schools across the united states we have seen this and there's nothing that tells me that that's simply not true will technology and video games make decisions safer i don't know i hope it will but here's what i do know i know that we have seen mass shooting after mass shooting after back shooting children in the united states but we're working in the schools with young students to help them understand the modern threats of that time and to better prepare with that to know exactly what to do in the case of the current modern threat happy in a plan their school in this case it is school shootings the united states and so you know teachers first responders being able to take part in the simulations is going to help them better train their students for what to do in the event of a school shooting but this is to some degree and acceptance that that is the
11:24 am
ongoing reality and that the only true response the only thing that the u.s. can do at this point is simply to prepare teachers for what is coming rather than to find a legitimate alternative to stopping those actual shootings themselves. they might think a successful businessman has better things to do than spend his days picking up litter on the street but not so when you're a man on a mission. i. i. forgit that i think it doesn't matter how much money you have no matter if you are rich or poor you always need to pass on positive energy to society it doesn't matter how old you are either. i think if.
11:25 am
you didn't buy the night before so someone dropped litter in public i would persuade them to pick it up and not to do it again because i collect trash to remind and persuade others i see it on time if ten percent of citizens were like him our environment would be much better. show machine i believe that if i persist the environment would be better doing this as long as i can even when i'm seventy eighty years old. when i went on to say we love to hear your thoughts on our stories so do get in touch by following us on social media my colleague daniel morgans will be back with the latest headlines of the time but there was.
11:26 am
a fatwa to. go. down that. when lawmakers manufacture consent to instant of public wealth. when the ruling classes to protect themselves. when the financial merry go round lifts only the one percent we're told. to ignore middle of the room signals. room for the real news
11:27 am
real world. the two thousand and eight economic crisis turn some countries into pigs these are the countries with weaker economies that needed austerity policies if you are in a situation of low bloat even the recession austerity is a very bad idea it doesn't work and it makes millions of people very unhappy those who are unemployed see their wages decline almost a decade how good are the results she saw lho said to new york city's will by the people gathered in which to watch are all good people with your daughter julie a choice to treat it be it will be she still claim what was i mean to for legal. challenge nothing more than this she did not was always think they see something and not get it. while the same measure is still in place to one of the consequences
11:28 am
who's to we can blue bird flu dismantle who will first be one of those was the truth the consumer is the consequences are actually quite acceptable to the decision maker. hello and welcome to cross talk where all things considered i'm peter lavelle it's a new year but the same stories persist out front is the chaotic trump white house followed by the steel dossier and a possible breakthrough with north korea. in
11:29 am
the new year i'm joined by my guest mark silva he's an international affairs and security analyst and we have to me he's a political analyst we spoke nick international ok gentlemen as always crosstalk rules and i think that means you can jump in anytime you want and i always appreciate let's talk about michael wolff fire in fury i look at it is basically political gossip something that something's in there we've already suspected but one of the things i thought was interesting that i pulled from the eggs or i haven't read the book i haven't seen the whole thing but you know when we have these conversations with steve bannon the former strategist. and being thrown to the curb later by mr trump the collusion with israel again this story pops it doesn't get a whole lot of coverage because people want to hyperventilate about how crude or rude or simple minded or stupid the president is but there are little nuggets coming out here that the mainstream just isn't interested in the well first i was
11:30 am
puzzled by the admission. that actually i'm going to quote him. certain segments of this. presidency in this book were false and that was reduced to make up their own minds well that's not a term that's not journalism markedly reaction to i don't want to waste a lot of yeah well he specifically said that a lot of what he. he says in the book quotations and so on contradicts each other and that some of the people were flat out lying to him. and that in some areas he's going to let the readers decide what is true in other areas he's going to decide on a narrative that he believes and this guy is a charlatan he's a flim flam man he's he's he's selling scandal to an audience a resistance liberal media audience they want sway and all this to believe it's
11:31 am
like for him.
