parliament well now politicians there have more things to worry about than stuff like their election promos or for the most any custom have the question has to be asked of those people and if there's no one to hack who are you doing want to figure out who do you think you are born or if you destroyed the whole area for the neighbors for the children on their way to a free school who have to see burnt out cars that were going to be hard response from society any of this 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 i was attacked by five people and they took client all of my. own and there are increased number of us. you know things have gotten worse in every way the police man said that he

11:10 am
secure classified info from someone who has helped foment division in the past and clearly has very partisan leanings the most divisive president an individual who basically portrayed his nation he 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 breaux. and 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 debacle began last month when senator rand paul called brennan's motives into question asking if he had been profiting off of this 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
11:11 am
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 here 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 dennis and cia certainly i mean i believe these people are all involved in this rush to get to fabrication of it and then manipulating information and data for the public consumption to confuse and. you know create all kinds of uncertainty in the government in the government business that's that's what the that's why they should never have a clearance. meanwhile washington has a tradition of allowing former presidents son senior intelligence officials to still get their morning intel briefings each and every day even when they were
11:12 am
tired but now in the unprecedented wake of cutting off brennan's top level security access donald trump says this is not political he would have done the same to any republican he didn't incompetent. c.n.n. presenter chris cuomo her sparks control the seaforth saying on the air that violence coming from the left wing anti fun movement in the us is more morally justified and violence which comes from the far right the comments were made a day after and if i had minor clashes with police and journalists while countering a white nationalist rally in washington or pointers or equal drawing a moral equivalency between those espousing hate and those fighting it because they both resort to violence emboldens hate legitimize heedful belief and elevates what should be stamped out. and he my colleague andrew fowler got
11:13 am
reaction by for and against chris klein chris cuomo is coming. to town 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 hay or whatever they claim you can't put your hands on somebody even 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 an associate 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
11:14 am
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 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 you know what 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 a yes there's somebody that wears a mask attacks dangerous people without personal provocation and 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 that the. law does not dictate more ality the law
11:15 am
is just the law many people talking about aged morally acceptable to hurt those who are talking about hate but what about the innocent people actually members of the media get attacked by and used to use schoolteachers be united in the media is also here sacked by dandyism played it wait wait well wait hold on hold on i'm not finished you see people are they are people of color as the left likes to call them being made by these individuals because if their political opinions 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 bad 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 happened these people are just afraid they're cowards and they're acting in a way that is totally irrational because of their fear washington wrong they will keep up pressure on turkey even if on crowd backs down in the spring time or right
11:16 am

11:18 am
no no no no i don't want to see. what you say in this one american to put global financial stability at risk. put u.s. base presence in turkey at risk but as a nato ally lines within the field partner at risk for one american who is being put through the church is just so you're saying this is our fault turkey is our 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 up when the u.s. government for that are stepping in on turkey's side is coutts are which is just

11:21 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 kick your allies we have talks about putting america first because its allies also it would america first to handle their own interests and this is beginning i think decouple some of the lows for america most obviously he's really trying to assert american leadership and perhaps we've tended to think of american aggressiveness in recent years has been probably the military involvement supposed like afghanistan iraq and so on but in a way to trump perhaps is less inclined to want to use military power but he wants
