4:06 pm
stores. that will be for. original. ladies and gentlemen this is. truly you know story. political and security analyst live in a rough it's believed that the indictment puts the country in a difficult position. because of a very long investigation and we also in the middle of a little process still not over so all together tonight isn't only the waiting for a. leader results to the 1st time that you see the really young history we have such a situation is not very good people don't like it i mean no one likes the situation

drug maker with more is killing more people. purdue pharma the corporation that created oxy cotton is generally blamed for the crisis due to their efforts to reorient the medical community and change the narrative regarding the dangers of addiction let's go over a specific example of how they went about doing this in 2004 the new york times ran an article containing this wildly misleading statement regarding the danger of addiction contrary to media portrayals the typical oxycontin addict does not start out as a pain patient who fell unwittingly into a drug habit the author of that article is sally said tell a fellow at the american enterprise institute specializing in medical issues coincidentally the american enterprise institute received $50000.00 a year from purdue pharma since 2003 plus an additional 800000 dollars for special events according to documents received by pro publica but it gets better what study

did said tell site in order to defend a funder of her institute the national household survey on drug abuse found that among non-medical oxycontin users 98 percent has also used other addictive pain relievers for non medical purposes and more than a 4th had used heroin well what they don't mention is that that study was actually carried out by employees and consultants of purdue pharma now sally's to tell says she has no idea that her institute was funded by purdue the new york times and the american enterprise institute have denied any wrongdoing but sallies to tell didn't just defend the profits of purdue in the new york times she also did it elsewhere she was quite a media star when it came to propane killer opining. oxycontin does not cause addiction it's abusers are already addicts. the real public health damage here comes from the peach campaign conducted by zealous prosecutors and public interest
4:10 pm

4:12 pm
you know became a victim of a coup attempt that you immediately supported me. of course it's scary when you see snipers when the police get out of control this is a rational fear to be brave does not mean to be afraid of nothing as we brave need to control yourself and do what you need to do and in bolivia's the police rebels and the army commanders demanded that you are the president elected in the democratic elections resign and you took this step the most of it was in a mistake would it be best to resist to remain is some friendly region to you for example in the province of china and wage a struggle from there. i don't know but i think that the most important thing at the moment was to stop further violence the next day our supporters no longer knew what was happening what happened to whom who died and who did not they were scared so technically you continued to be the president of the country at the bottom of the well if my resignation was not approved then yes from a legal point of view their policy. they don't want to compound the constitutional
4:13 pm
court the same one that allowed you to run for election will recognize the government of this lady what is her name and he is on as genuine and honest this is yet another good idea it's simply unbelievable you don't even know whether to laugh or cry with such self-proclaimed presidents but the constitutional court recognized the government of this and yes what happened to this court did they intimidate it too i want you to understand this because it may turn out that their decisions have nobody is forcing anyone. yes they threaten a lot of employees of various state institutions or threaten them if they are intimidated that if they do not obey they will be attacked at their homes with their families i believe that this is pure fascism of course jews were also persecuted during a nazi is. a
4:14 pm
selection of nazi memorabilia that has gone under the hammer in germany they may have sparked a backlash from jewish leaders in the country. those items any items that have anything to do that could come to do anything for any resource should be kept away archives of governments but items that there's nothing to do that there's nothing to do for research point of view completely to be destroyed any things that relate a little future up and see anything related to to al qaeda leaders anything related to any other mass of water or those people heritage should be kept as should be out of question at all if you did
4:15 pm
a service would not offer any person who seeks to live closer to light and so for the kind of leaders the world does i says you know there's no question those people would be on the watch in order to make sure that there is a racial world leader to do something durable in the future those people have to be on the watch to make sure that the do not have any tension to take days to receive the next level of this is why we believe we have to be on the watch on the european jewish associations official statements claims the items like historical value and will be bought by those wishing to glorify the fascist regime the auction house director claims most of their customers are museums and professional collectors who quote deal meticulously with the subject. the u.s. congress has passed the bill in support of hong kong protesters president trump is expected to sign it into law despite delicate trade talks with china the big has angered beijing. young go through to where this young home cartoons are part of
4:16 pm
china and hong kong a very very china's internal affair to go where the united states should immediately stop interfering where it will be hit by negative you can't use forces trainer will have to take strong contra measures to defend its national sovereignty security and development interests. the bill called the hong kong human rights and democracy act will allow sanctions to be imposed on those officials who suppress human rights in the city it will also require an annual assessment of hong kong's autonomy to the current chinese one country 2 systems the city has its own government and is in charge of its own economic affairs if any issues are flagged up on kong special trade status with the us would be revoked. the territory having wracked by protests for months has already led to some economic consequences a number of companies have started to quit hong kong the city has lost its crown as the boast a lucrative for luxury swiss watches some companies are relocated to singapore amid the social unrest demonstrators are demanding protection of democratic rights
4:17 pm
official investigations into police brutality. i. professor of politics at east china normal university in shanghai joseph gregory mahoney believes that this can only lead to a situation where hong kong loses. as well aware the nicest government is famously and unapologetically mettlesome another country's affairs often with catastrophic results for stakeholders we have to recognize i think that china sentiment in the us appears to be chipping in to a level of scene unfolding madness at this point and frankly it increasingly recalls the same sort of culture that was fostered in the us yes the soviet union during the reagan years congress is pandering to the sentiments of one of the few areas where the 2 parties can agree with each other so it's kind of ironic that the
4:18 pm
american political system which can't work together to solve its own problems won't this won't stop them of course from meddling with others ultimately while it may reinforce protesters in a battle they can't win with. it will probably create a situation where all. already has a number of negative consequences for hong kong there have been some talking about not entering the market others leaving the market one thing though that you know we see the chinese i.p.o.'s have not have not been deterred and it's not yet clear this will encourage or discourage them from our listing in hong kong but i think we can also look at the announcement yesterday in china of liberalizing the financial services sector and mainly as an immediate tactical possible and some major announcement yesterday and today with a more. violent clashes have broken out in the haitian capital is hundreds of protesters there demonstrated against the visit of the u.s. ambassador to the united nations reports say at least 2 people were injured.

4:20 pm
reached a very good and positive results so i would like to thank all the people of my colleagues those people that work at their places i see it as a boomerang effect many u.s. companies invested a lot of money in this or that project but then had to cancel them at the so they lost punish themselves during trying to present say our trade turnover with the us has reached $25000000000.00 that's a number we have with not so much you see this but at the same time we have many common interests with the u.s. was that this week forbes magazine published an article claiming russia's now bullet proof against u.s. sanctions and that it's economy is one of the world's most stable of seventy's kaiser report max kaiser says that the country is indeed performing well despite the obstacles it faces from the west. russia should have a aaa credit from the rating agencies is doing brilliantly you know if you look at the price of dollars in the bond market it looks like russia is the premier economy
4:21 pm
in the world right you've got 6 the happier sand on the ruble bond you've got 4 and a quarter percent return on their u.s. dollar equivalent bonds compared to germany and elsewhere where they have negative year olds in america are under 2 percent here we are russia looking fantastic the sanctions have worked out brilliantly for russia because it forced them to diversify in ways that they wouldn't have done otherwise in other booming across many sectors outside of the energy sector the head of the russian central bank has done a brilliant job and resisting the temptation to print money in factories reduced debt and the country's been buying hundreds of tons of gold so it has a very almost no debt whatsoever it's got a lot of golf it's diversified the bonds are yielding it more than almost every other industrialized country in the world and it should be rated aaa moody's and s. and p. should give russia a aaa rating on its credit elvira and president putin have done
4:22 pm
a brilliant job so bring it on this i think the phrase bullet proof is apt it's a good phrase the russian economy is bullet proof i agree. the new easy incident during a t.v. interview with the us democrat lawmakers gone viral to his own bizarre way has highlighted the divisions in u.s. politics is a ski tailor. more so than at the washington is thick with intrigue contriver see the public hearings in the latest trump impeachment saga into their 2nd week and everyone wants to know has he done it will this be the straw that finally breaks the camel's back the president used taxpayer dollars to ask the ukrainians to help with an election that can't be right guys i think we've got the wrong sound bite in the. what really. ok no apparent need that
4:23 pm
is right. fought gate is on everyone's lips democratic representative eric was weighing in on the ongoing impeachment hearings when he dropped dropped an explosive bomb on m s n b c you'd think though that while one world human stuff happens move on and to the president of the united states of america could possibly be impeached potentially just the thought in the country's history but no the scandal over that quick moment is refusing really. to blow over and mainstream media is leading the charge trying to get to the bottom of it i'm really sorry about the but i have to ask if this was you or someone in the studio it was not me and i didn't hear it when i was speaking you look like you heard it and. i guess i did

4:25 pm
not sure so maybe another one the cameraman was to blame they were ways think they're safe just because the king in the shot but guys is that even possible you know. no i thought of the theories held up to scrutiny though view was smelt a rat pluto was demoted as a planet which eric swalwell is now secure among the gas giants eric swalwell is not a candidate that you can stand behind the cover of is own worries worse than a crime so while iran faces protests bolivia it faces a coup trump faces possible impeachment and the u.k. faces and not the string of pranks it delays the media follows it's very funny excellent nose for stories let's see when this one runs out of gas ok this is ridiculous i mean are you know you can talk about this seriously on.
