information sara sander spoke to press and she said the decision to revoke his clearance was based on his erratic conduct and behavior of defending the move as an effort to secure classified info from someone who has helped foment division in the past and career lee has very partisan leanings the most divisive president an individual who basically pre-treat his nation routinely lies betray the women of the f.b.i. he deceived and betrayed the american public and he misrepresents the facts and reality is a betrayal of the nation but this is not abnormal president john brennan himself has already chimed in blasting the move as part of a bid to suppress free speech and punish critics but for some context john brennan left his position as director of the cia back in january twenty seventeen and he now serves as m s n b c's senior national security and intelligence analyst but this whole debate. aapl began last month when senator rand paul called brennan's motives into question asking if he had been profiting off of this clearance by
4:08 am
divulging secrets to the mainstream media his exact words he even met with trump asking him to revoke the clearances of not only brennan but i feel other prominent political figures i'm evaluating action with respect to the following individuals james clapper james comey michael hayden sally ates susan rice and german cave appear sure lisa page and bruce or security clearances for those who still have them may be revoked the president is doing the right thing rebooking the clearances of people who aren't contributing anything learn lee a lot of them were higher ups in the f.b.i. and also it is. certainly i mean i believe these people are all involved in this rush we gave every patient of it in manipulating information and data for the public consumption to confuse and. you know create all kinds of uncertainty in the government the government business that's that's what the that's why they should never have a clearance meanwhile washington has
4:09 am
a tradition of allowing former presidents and senior intelligence officials to still get the morning intel briefings each and every day even when they are retired now the president did wake of cutting off breton's top level security access donald trump says this is not political he would have done the same to any republican he deemed incompetent. the u.s. remains in the grip of a wave of protests as both far right and left wing groups rallied to denounce each other after some of the demos turn violent c.n.n. present to chris cuomo made a controversial claim that violence coming from the anti for movement in america is more morally justified than violence which comes from the far right. all punches are not equal drawing a moral equivalency between those espousing hate and those fighting it because they both resort to violence emboldens hate legitimizes hateful belief
4:10 am
and elevates what should be stamped out by. my colleague on her family of reaction both for and against chris cuomo scully's. every time i see them on television they seem to be getting some kind of fight some kind of altercation it always seems to come from them and as a matter if they're fighting hey or whatever they claim you can't put your hands on somebody and then hide behind some kind of moral high ground don't touch people if you don't want to be chased is really just as simple as day it doesn't matter what political affiliation the other person is violence even if it's the most justified and righteous violence that you can have it still creates negative karma it is
4:11 am
still very problematic seemed to be. something that should be diverted to only when it's absolutely necessary these people really are what they purport and so's to be against they're talking about being an anti-fascist but a lot of their action mirrors that of what was on the mussolini's time with the whole black church situation it seems like they're doing the same thing i'm not saying that there's actually to same as what was going on back then in italy but a lot of their tactics seem to mirror what they were doing and that is an ideal or a long i'll hold on hold on wait wait wait wait just because somebody is hateful in your eyes does not mean that it's ok or somehow justified at all to hurt then you can say violence or maybe justify it no it's not if somebody does not put their hands on you you cannot put your hands on them is very simple if you put your hands on somebody then that person has a right to defend themselves you know you talk about don't put your hands on somebody will you know that he had hired somebody that as
4:12 am
a yes there's somebody that wears a mask attacks dangerous people without personal provocation puts their hands on them you know who it is it's batman this type of behavior is justified in our society violence can be used to prevent greater violence it's a boils down to no it doesn't it is against the law to commit violence against another individual yeah of course the law does not dictate or al of the law is just the law many people talking about oh well it's morally acceptable to hurt those who are talking about hate. what about the innocent people who actually members of the media get attacked by and used to you school teachers being nice to me is also an attack by the hand isn't played it wait wait well wait hold on hold on i'm not the initial you see people today are people of color as the left likes to call them being attacked by these individuals because if their political opinions so i don't really understand this whole thing about well it's ok if somehow justify for the values that it does because most of the time when i see jimmy gaijin news about
4:13 am
news is against those who just have different points of view you know i'd have to see it see the statistics on that. you know we have seen a outbreak in street fighting between fascists and anti-fascists that absolutely has happened these people are just afraid they're cowards and they're acting in a way that is totally irrational because of their fear. a group calling itself new greatness is on trial for extremism here in russia for allegedly plotting a rebellion out of those arrested have asked to be placed under house arrest instead of the tension with a decision on this expected today sounds a bit complicated i did a quarter of a investigates the members of the new greatness movement are accused of organizing an extremist again and calling for a constitutional revolution the investigation claims this young man was its leader and here's how he described its purpose. was to establish

4:20 am
and to help boost turkey is a commie qatar has approved fifteen billion dollars in aid or some more puerto rico to buying some financial markets for now though don quarter takes a look at how the decades old alliance between the u.s. and turkey spiraled to this point. she was built the entire entire roof so no leading goes to great tree deals as opposed to the horrible food trade deals the rowing heritage as your president of the country should not be allowed to come in and steal the wealth of all great you any longer what countries could be meaner stealing could be turkey the country's lira shed a quarter of its value against the dollar in just one week after trump's tweet about doubling existing tariffs investors are running away screaming inflation surging and turkey's leadership is bracing for an all out trade war the reason for such a calamity against an old nato friend was ankara's refusal to release an american

pastor accused of both terrorism and espionage it's punishment time for a rebellious ally that tariffs that are in place on steel would not be removed with the release of castor brunson and president heard a wand lashed out in defiance calling the u.s. move an attempt to force turkey to surrender and make them a slave to the greenback this is come through of doing things. to come more. and they want to use this for political purposes but turkey is just one example of how the trumpet ministration treats longtime allies in fact many of america's friends have already been forced into the fray in a war of tariffs and sanctions canada had heavy steel and aluminum tariffs imposed earlier this year and trump perhaps thought the stars and stripes needed some
4:22 am
protection from its northern neighbor who didn't take too kindly to it that it's kind of insult to move forward with retaliatory measures on july first applying equivalent tariffs as if that wasn't bad enough the us president went and slapped tariffs on europe today i'm defending america's national security. by placing tariffs on foreign imports of steel and aluminum brussels tried to hit back with restrictions of its own tried to appeal to the transatlantic solidarity special relations bonds of friendship but to no avail and it begs the question with such a long list of enemies the us is currently fighting from iran to north korea russia china why can't your allies i think this has become a real tit for tat thing and i do not for a new york minute think that the pastor is really what is going on here now of course are washington with that group been strained for some time ever since the

coup attempt against terror go on i suspect there's something going on with regional politics maybe with regard to syria that is really the reason behind competitors like beijing and moscow attempting to pack as much heat as the u.s. these days sanctioning and scaring everyone in view may be the only way for the u.s. to impose its will on friend and foe alike donald quarter r.t. . so it's a program here on r.t. international a military intelligence compound has been attacked in the afghan capital local security officials say the number of gunmen known the area has been cordoned off by soldiers witnesses report gunfire and at least one explosion we understand the fighting is ongoing we'll bring you the updates as soon as we get them. the attack comes as the country's security services struggle to deal with a spike in terror a suicide bombing on

4:25 am
time it's antagonizing russia china. iran even pakistan india and other countries and their attempt to maintain its hegemony over global affairs but this is exhausting the united states and i believe that it's leading it to overextension the way. they did. by the korean war of kennedy in his famous book the rise and fall of great empires so i believe that the united states is being overstretched and it might lead to a big crisis within this country and of course it's wrong worldwide your program continues at the top of the hour.
4:26 am
america was never great to spend it on the rape and murder. and nothing changed so we said in. response to these situations that we're dealing with. people get sad every day she is just sad people kill each other blood for killing children. there was just no way that people are going to just sit back and allow children to be shot down by law enforcement. this country doesn't work for us it doesn't function for us. this this can't be happening in america we call from the streets we've got to deal with why this is the reason i have to ride like this is the reason.

what holds his hands to. put themselves on the line they get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. or some want to listen. to going to be press dislikable for three in the morning can't be good. i'm interested always in the waters in the house. question. welcome to worlds apart sending humans into space has long required
4:28 am
a national and even international effort to provide all the necessary financing and technology but space access recent successes in hauling freight into orbit claim to challenge these paradigms against privatized space services make space exploration cheaper and easier well to discuss that i'm now joined by geoffrey hofmann an american astronaut and currently a professor of aeronautics and astronautics at the massachusetts institute of technology and dr hoffman it's so great to talk to you thank you very much for your time. pleasure to be here now the world is still mass mara's by space-x. recent falcon have a launch it was certainly very spectacular after some people compare it to the launch of sputnik or the landing on the moon i want it all as an engineer do you think that was really such a major technological breakthrough a major milestone in the history of space exploration. no i mean it is
4:29 am
evolutionary but what space x. as a whole is trying to accomplish i do think is revolutionary. the idea of strapping together three first stages to make a more powerful rocket is not new the the u.s. has the delta heavy rocket which has been flying for many years now. so that technology is not revolutionary however what space x. has accomplished is to make it a lot more affordable. the rough cost of a delta heavy. it's hard to know exactly but it's in the order of two hundred fifty million dollars the falcon nine the falcon heavy can carry. twice the payload of the delta heavy for about one hundred million
4:30 am
dollars and so it really is changing the paradigm of how much it costs to get into space and and that's the revolutionary aspect i think of what space x. is doing but dr hoffman i wonder if it's perhaps too early to say that because i think the same arguments were made about the shuttle program that it's a reusable that it's going to be so much cheaper than let's say the soviet comparison but dan i got from your own lecture is the shuttles turned out to be much more expensive because all the ground operations and how they were service perhaps not very efficiently i understand that this is a house basics markets it's technology at this point of time but can we really rely on those figures to be proven in time well. you're absolutely correct that people are waiting to see and spain.
