united nations continues to maintain that could be no military solution to the conflict in that country. a string of arson attacks has rocked sweden three weeks ahead of september elections three suspects have been arrested one of them in turkey is widely thought that the timing of the fires which appeared of being coordinated it was not accidental and speculation is rife as to who carried out the attacks and what impact they may have on the electoral race. trying to investigates . it's not even dark people look out their windows and see this. the first train of thought locals are just completely baffled and can't squeeze out a word a few moments later the erupt in sheer fury and they scream. thanks
6:06 am

6:07 am
people and if there's no one to hack who are you doing what do you think you are born if you destroy the whole area of the neighborhood for the children on their way to a free school we have to see turns out because we're going to be hard response from society any of us notion somewhat strong words but not as emotional as society which clearly wants the ones in charge to get it sorted. such neighborhood disasters don't come out of nowhere when it comes to all kinds of street crime lately sweden's been getting less and less safe because it was attacked by five people and they took my bike home and there are increased number of shootings it's gotten worse in every way police man said that he had never experienced anything like this or changed. it is not this week. and when he.
6:08 am
years of ignoring the trends backfired literally with flames some of the swedish elite chose not to talk about the state rather they came up with conspiracies or in other words pointed the finger at right wing extremists some quote unquote dark forces. they want the elections to be about arsons they want to fuel discussed and fear i hope the whole thing is not orchestrated by the dark forces that threaten our democracy and our independence. last night's events with one month left before the election were well organized would not surprise me if the extreme right were involved in some way they've also flagged by the extreme right version is popular among some journalists to. sweden democrats sympathises of running around in the suburbs burning cars in a coordinated action to direct criticism of the suburbs population in the hope of favoring s.d.
6:09 am
to make sure sweden can dodge any russian efforts to screw up its election stockholm has even splashed out on the media so that they could wipe out the never ending fake news that was only to be hit by a wave of homegrown conspiracies before the police had at least something solid for the public ilya betraying co r.t.e. . swedish police and note that similar attacks happened in several swedish towns in previous years but on a far smaller scale and we spoke to swedish democratic m.p. can't his party has sparked controversy over its anti immigration stance he says people are starting to realize sweden is not as safe as they thought it once was. this situation in sweden has started to seep out in the international arena when people suddenly realize whoops sweden is not a nice little country thought it was but now realize what the hell happened to sweden and so this has been on for

a long time we have made your arse and wired many years back i just saw some statistics that. are so. in cars with intent. has gone up from twelve to thirty percent from nine hundred sixty seven to one thousand five hundred cases a year or something and i mean it's been going up in actual numbers too. donald trump has revoked the security clearance so former cia director john brennan lashing out at him saying he exhibits erratic conduct and behavior and it's the water brennan is only the first in a line of officials who will suffer the same fate as american reports exercised my constitutional authority to deny mr brennan access to classified information sarah sandor spoke to press and she said that the decision to revoke his clearance was based on his erratic conduct and behavior of defending the move as an effort to
6:11 am
secure classified info from someone who has helped foment division in the past and clearly has very partisan leavings the most divisive president an individual who basically pre-treat his nation routinely lies betray the woman. 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 seventh team and he now serves as m s n b c's senior national security and intelligence analyst but this whole debate. began last month when senator rand paul called brennan's motives into question asking if he had been profiting off of his clearance by 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
6:12 am
figures i am a valuating action with respect to the following individuals james clapper james comey michael hayden sally ates susan rice and german cave peter struck 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 certainly 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 to get to every case you know a bit and 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 you know all washington has a tradition of allowing former presidents and senior intelligence officials to still get the morning intel briefings each and every day even when they were tired
6:13 am
but now in the unprecedented way of cutting off britain's top level security access 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 turned violent c.n.n. present chris cuomo medical professional claim the violence coming from the un teeth a movement in the u.s. 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 and elevates what should be stamped out.
6:14 am
i. am i called a country fama got reaction for and against chris cuomo his comments. 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 it is 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 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 associate
6:15 am
be against they're talking about being 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 it directly to same as what was going on back then in italy but a lot of their tactics seem to mirror what they were doing just because i mean what he's like to do that is an ideal or a long i'll 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't 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 somebody that as 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
6:16 am
society violence can be used to prevent greater violence it's a boils down to no doesn't it is against the law to commit violence against another individual yeah of course but the law does not dictate morality the law is just the law many people talking about. morally acceptable to hurt. those who were talking about what about the innocent people actually members of the media get attacked by and used to use school teachers do you know i mean he is also a serious hack by dan his complete wait wait well wait hold on hold i'm not finished you see people today are people of color as the left likes to call them being made by these individuals because if their political opinion so i don't really understand this whole thing about. it's ok if somehow justify the values i don't see if it does because most of the time when i see jimmy gaijin news about 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 fascist said absolutely has
6:17 am
happened these people are just afraid they're cowards and they're acting in a way that is totally irrational because of their fear are still to come here on the program on t.v. the spiraling trade war between the us and if that's up to the fact. what politicians do you should. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. for something i want to press. it to going to be approached this is what the four three and a lot of people are. interested in that was.
6:18 am
seemed wrong. wrong just don't call. me. yet to see how to stay active. engagement equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. i just give you to join us today a group calling itself the new greatness is on trial for extremism here in russia for allegedly plotting a rebellion two of those arrested have asked to be placed under house arrest
6:19 am
instead of the tension with a decision expected on this today but in a caution about reports on the case. the members of the new greatness movement are accused of organizing an extremist gang and calling for a constitutional revolution the investigation claims this young man was its leader and here is how he described its purpose. was to establish rules on russian territory put the ruling elites on trial and repealed repressive laws in the constitution. the idea of the movement grew out of private chats on social media platforms here's an extract again the revolutionary fire is starting everywhere but we can't do anything like this here in our country that said it all began when a few young people from moscow and its regions started to share their political views with each other online later they began meeting in person mostly in mcdonalds

6:23 am
state department. one. in this this one american to put global financial stability at risk. put u.s. base presence in turkey at risk put a nato ally in line for the nato partner at risk for one american who's being put through the church is just so you're saying this is our fault turkey is the financial situation has been in the works for quite some time and it dates prior to the imposition of sanctions on august i believe was august the first so this is been in train for quite some time and even not blame the u.s. government for that well i stopping it on turkish side is qatar which all of a sudden has approved fifteen billion dollars in aid to prop up the turkish economy . quarter take a look at how the decades old alliance between the u.s. and turkey spiraled to this point. she was built. leading us to great trade deals as opposed to the horrible food trade deals the drawing heritages
6:24 am
your president of the country should not be allowed to come in and steal the wealth of all great you. what countries could he mean are 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 pastor brunson and president her to want lashed out in defiance calling the u.s. move and attempt to force turkey to surrender and make them
6:25 am
a slave to the greenback this is coming through of doing things. to come more. and do you want to. 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 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
6:26 am
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's ties 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

world. when a loved one is murder it's natural to seek the death penalty for the murder i would prefer and it means to live the death penalty just because i think that's the fair thing the right thing research shows that for every nine executions one convict just bombed dennison the idea that we were executing innocent people is terrifying the is just no way to present and that we're even many of victims families want the death penalty to be abolished the reason we have to keep the death penalty here is because that's what murder victims' families what that's going to give them peace that's going to give them justice and we come in and say. not quite enough we've been through this this isn't the way.
