1:08 am
possible then we have option b. the usa now aside from everything else the us is better than china why because it says so united states has a principled approach that stands in stark contrast to some other nations our vision will prevail besides beijing is just a user anyway china is taking advantage of the united states for many many years. those days are over. unlike china the us doesn't want to tie you down it just wants you to do things the american way so it doesn't have to punish the united states. offers a better option we don't drown our partners in sea of debt we don't coerce compromise your independence with a lot to say on the local fun club at hand if this was a custody battle see jim paine good get the kids the red carpets were rolled the bones plates chinese flanks were waved clearly papua new guinea has already been

1:11 am
united states last thursday alone about two thousand migrants arrived in the area i thought was and more are soon expected they're likely to be stuck there for months while a sign the occasions are processed putting pressure on mexico or local services the u.s. has ramped up its border security with helicopter patrols on barbed wire for the residents of tijuana temperature frae. migrants it's a human avalanche but i'm not against the migrants i mean the ways they enter in a country you know obama could have or they think if they don't cross it's necessary to deport them soon and to close the border and try to treat this kind of problem like a national security issue you know i don't want to register i want to ask for asylum because nine months ago the brother tried to do you mean political completely but what i know what we go into way too little bit because people say that it is a lie they're not giving anything they're doing that so people exhaust and then

deport them to one juror. sitting the kids in front of the t.v. to watch cartoons should be a safe bet to keep them quiet just for a bit at least just make sure though they're not being covertly programmed with propaganda some western news reports claim a globally acclaim russian series is trying to influence young minds affecting the good report. and that little sweetheart was matia from the cartoon in the bear originally russian the series has been translated into dozens of languages and won the hearts of millions across the globe but it turns out there may be a sinister side to the enduring little girl and her protective pet decently trying to. bring him to me. now what russia has forgotten to mention there is that some cartoons are in fact

1:14 am
influenced by the kremlin's hand saying they received no state funding but we did a bit of digging and found some ominous signs you simply can't ignore here comes the kremlin for all of two seconds that could easily be interpreted as a soviet red star the skies as an innocent christmas decoration and you may not realize it but the weird hat that must have got on here is a traditional russian hat now i know those examples. aren't so much propaganda as they are just random russian things but that's all we could try but worry not it turns out the bear itself is a representation of russia as a whole you see bear you think russia right. the base symbolizes russia it's a fact it's a struggle for the minds part of a hybrid explosion in which a negative image of russia is replaced by a positive oh the horror the horror now you know what your children are being

1:23 am
one of her toughest weeks yet pm may said that getting rid of her would not make break to talks any easier it's actually about what's right for the country and as far as i'm concerned i would be distracted from actually the important job in this critical week of negotiations of making sure we do get that final good deal for the country but you know a change of leadership at this point isn't going to make the negotiations and it is not going to change the parliamentary arithmetic. it should be noted that some of the biggest criticism of trees amazing divorce plan comes from within our own party at least twenty five conservative m.p.'s say they have submitted letters of no confidence in the prime minister now forty eight are needed to trigger a leadership vote it is taking a toll on the party the tories are slipping in the polls breaks it supporting voters lose faith in the p.m.'s plan it's seeing the opposition labor party take a three point lead on ramping up pressure for a snap election the u.k.

1:25 am
looking at the numbers unless he could somehow get from the e.u. in the next couple of days some kind of further concessions that would make the deal. it carries it may have to fall this week you have a new conservative leader coming in. after the election leadership then that's going to be very how that plays out because the fact of the matter is the house of commons where the majority of m.p.'s are actually generally speaking favorable to remain. when news would be. my first instinct was that you wait and see if you read it it's a long document and it really is a bad deal that really is actually a deal with staying in. this is actually a deal which is a very long way i think from what majority of people. voted for.
