well i think it's the first of many many books that are going to come out about the top administration of this guy that said he was in the white house he wasn't so every day he was in the white house and when the reason bannan is out bannon apparently was prime it's primary source for many of these quotes gannon is also already apologized for many of them it's an interesting book i read at least some excerpts from it i think that people that don't like trump will buy it people that like him won't and won't make any any difference i think what will make a difference is a come november if the economy is humming along at four percent g.d.p. and entrance numbers are at fifty percent i think the house could very well stay in the hands of the republicans and the senate and donald trump in my opinion twenty twenty will be reelected and thirty four more years just say you know based on all of your elections and history the democrats might take that out oh yeah with donald trump is very unpopular. among democrats you have this whole trump investigation you have people demanding that he be impeached yeah this is generally speaking in
12:01 pm

unfortunately it appears that once people learn that you have reported a sexual assault or may have been involved in that they become scared of you instead of being scared of the perpetrator. in the heart of the swiss alps this is a place probably more secretive than the pentagon more mysterious than the cia and better guarded than for knox customs. is controlled by them and they impose the opening times so if. it is from the us the procedures in place of the strictest in all europe must to pieces by artists like pecan so and modigliani camped boards unsold inside this warehouse that's where the report comes in it covers a naturally discreet commercially discreet but also discreet concern fraud
12:03 pm
of some of those paintings a link to dark secrets nobody knows how many of these secrets a kept inside the geneva freeport system you'll never obtain an inventory of all the works in the freeport who knows how many there are three hundred three thousand three hundred thousand is it a matter of confidentiality only is it the world's black books of the art business . we're back to politicking i'm told during larry elder the conservative nationally syndicated radio host a new york times best selling author i recently spoke with bobby kennedy jr about all sure drilling being open by the trump administrator you live in california right what are your thoughts about drilling off your coast i have no problem with it a lot of environmentalists would not like it and i suspect there's going to be a big push back because of that it's also interesting that florida has
12:04 pm
a republican governor and they don't like in the donald trump has pretty much pulled back because of that surprise surprise politics has entered the area of environmentalism who'd a thunk are you an environmentalist i want clean air i want to clean water i'm not in a alarmist public i'm poly when i was a kid i used to be called a little old lady in tennis shoes and interested in the environment and we left at them. and i was the other way around well it was richard nixon they started the e.p.a. as per the first e.p.a. i don't agree that republicans want dirty water and dirty air we just disagree about how to achieve a better economy and i don't believe in this global warming alarmists are made very environments give me and i don't believe in this global warming alarmism that we're going to go to hell your own hand and climate change there's always climate change the climate is always changing that's one thing carbon affects it i think mankind has had something to do with it but how do you explain the little medieval warming period when we didn't have factories when the environment with war was warmer than it is right now i think man has something to do with it but the idea that we're all
12:05 pm
going to die unless we force feed our economy into some sort of green tech i think it's foolish i think you're denies science i am denying that one degree warmer over the last hundred years prompts this kind of alarmism that we're having from so many countries and so many leaders like obama but in i hard for a layman you and i laymen to deny science ninety eight percent of scientists and you laugh at the. here's what i would ask any layman to do go online and google the civil heretick it's an article this in new york times magazine about a man named freeman dyson probably the smartest man in the world he's a physicist not a climate scientist but a physicist and got interested in this issue a few years ago read everything he could and included that al gore was full of it that there is something going on with our with our climate but the climate changes all the time and man has man has a role but his role is probably small and he believes the whole thing is
12:06 pm
a crock now the reason it's called a civil to heretic is because he's a kind guy he's a nice man he's an obama supporter voted twice for him it's not political he just looked at the data and believes that it's overreach that's one guy against the world and you know. albert einstein was once told two hundred scientists believe he's wrong he said all i need is one to prove i'm wrong. great seeing you two continuing the conversation i'm now joined by bill press and over and progressive commentator host of the bill pressure though on the young turks network he's in washington d.c. the federal judge brought the dismantling of doc what's going to have the next bill . well first of all it's i think it's a good decision certainly for seven hundred thousand young people who are in the dreamers program because. no decision of their is they were brought here to this country when they were kids infants toddlers some of them never lived anywhere else
12:07 pm
they've got jobs they graduated from high school or college a lot of them of served in the military i believe this is the only country they know and they make up the fabric of this country now in the future of this country so i think it's good that they have protection by this judge larry but it's only temporary you know this is going to be appealed to the supreme court this does not get congress off the hook congress is going to have to decide what to do about these young people eighty percent of the american people think that they should be allowed to stay here without fear of deportation i hope congress does the right thing senator flake things though that the federal judge's ruling will lessen the urgency in congress that well i think he's wrong because number one it's only temporary with for sure two it will be appealed three while they are can going to continue to take renewal applications they can't take any
12:08 pm
applications for any new people who aren't already in the program so a lot of people still are going to be hurt by this congress the congress better here you know congress is always looking for a way out right kick the can down the road i don't think they can do it for very long on this bill are we going to see all. you know i don't think so honestly i don't i know donald trump says over and over again no protection for dreamers no immigration legislation on less there is a wall i think it's going to be tough to get congress to spend you know what this wall cost twenty five million dollars a mile for twenty five million dollars you could you could do probably twenty thousand kids on the children's insurance health program for a year or so for congress to say that a mile of that wall is more important and for protecting the health of kids or other priorities i think is going to be tough even for some republicans but here's
12:09 pm
what you and i know larry if they build this wall that was going to be as high as a kid he can make it and on top of that wall there are going to be gold letters t r u m p just like every trump tower that you and i know around the world sort of probably a night club and a casino somewhere nearby probably. yeah this is a monument trump wants as a monument to him you know so there's the china wall and the trump law. i think it's going to be tough. considering the russian investigation president trump said it's seems unlikely he will give an interview in the mall or visitation he also said i'll see what happens do you think the president will wind up talking to the special counsel. i think he's going to have to you know bill clinton didn't want to talk to the special counsel but he did hillary clinton didn't want to talk to the f.b.i. but she did if robert muller i don't see how robert mueller can conclude his investigate
12:10 pm
by the way the other thing the president said in that news conference with the prime minister of norway was there's no collusion no collusion no collusion everybody agrees everybody knows that's not true that robert mueller has not made that finding and we don't know what he's got so trump keeps saying that it's not true i don't see how muller can complete his investigation without talking to the president number one and number two i don't see how if muller the special counsel request a meeting with the president the united states is the chief target of this investigation i don't see how the white house can refuse that i'm not a lawyer but i think they would have to come to terms with it maybe they'll try to limit it say it's got to be you know no cameras or it's got to be secret or only certain questions are allowed but i think you're going to see in the white
12:11 pm
house robert mueller sit down with donald trump where you see this whole thing going on here here's what my guess is and there's everybody in washington has a theory there you know around the country i guess i believe this is not stopping first of all with paul man of ford and george papadopoulos it's not stopping with michael flynn that's going higher i think it goes to jared kirshner on a lot of financial stuff i think it might even snare evolve. i doubt that it goes all the way to donald trump but it could and one thing that's very. a very strong element here is the f.b.i. does believe most of what was in that famous they call it the dossier put together by christopher steele for the usual g.p.s. and forget the salacious stuff there's a lot of stuff in there about how russia for years going back years have been
12:12 pm
trying to influence and get some hawk into donald trump way before the campaign started so it could go as high as the present what do you think of the blackmail insinuation. it's certainly i think it's credible i think is possible and christopher steele again who was hired former british spy hired by this firm fusion g.p.s. which is an opposition research firm they work for a lot of clients candidates christopher steele was hired by them was so concerned about the possibility that trump was being blackmailed by the russians that he actually went to the f.b.i. himself and said hey you guys ought to be aware of this so he took it seriously and the f.b.i. is taking it seriously think we'll have a government shutdown. i don't think so you know i. have seen one right with newt gingrich. ten years fifteen twenty maybe twenty years ago now it didn't work too
12:13 pm
well for nucular kitchen it didn't work so well for the republicans i think a government shutdown would hurt both parties and i think both of them are would like to would almost do anything to avoid it but i think the one thing democrats are not going to go for this deal the trump is offering them larry right now there he's saying yeah you you can have your dreamers if you give me eighteen billion dollars from my wall i've talked to a lot of democrats on the hill in the last couple of days since they've been back and i haven't found one democrat who would vote for that deal congressman ed royce and congressman dan liason both of california both republicans are not going to seek reelection is that an indication that the democrats are going to have a good time in the. it certainly helps their case to first of all you know larry i'm former democratic chair of california and. the those are two
12:14 pm
seats that democrats can win darrell almost lost the last time and he's in northern san diego county you and i know that's not heavy democratic territory he won by less than half a percent and ed royce as a district that is changing as well i think it immensely helps the democrats' chances in california to pick up at least a couple more if not three or four more seats and they only need twenty one to take back control of the house and everybody says oh twenty one seeds man that's a that's a big lift well it's it is a big lift but in two thousand and ten when john boehner and the republicans took back the house they won sixty five seats so twenty one is not a lot when you compare it to a banner was able to do i think the democrats' chances for the house and for the senate and twenty eighteen. with all these retirements are looking better every day . one of his manger these was the infrastructure and that both
12:15 pm
parties agreed that that was a major thing where is it going you know what larry. here's what that really is i'm just i can't understand that. if donald trump first of all it quickly answered your question and i've asked several members of congress the last couple of days nobody is talking about infrastructure anymore no body one. well i don't get it donald trump last year instead of starting to repeal obamacare starting with that if he had started with infrastructure and he talked about remember a trillion dollars he was going to a trillion dollar infrastructure program bernie sanders talked about the same thing if donald trump and started with an infrastructure bill he could have had bipartisan support democrats republicans gotten that bill through in a month's time and there would be jobs it would be money out of every congressional
12:16 pm
district in the country it would have been a huge colossal when instead he started on this repeal of obamacare and they spent what six seven eight months on that and never got it done so there. again i think they should do it this year but i can tell you nobody is talking about it and i think they're making a big mistake i agree thanks bill zone's great talking to you happy new year larry you're doing this and thank you for joining me today on this edition of politics you remember you can join the conversation on my facebook page or tweet me king's things don't forget use the politicking hash tag and so for this edition of politicking.
12:17 pm
when lawmakers manufacture consent in student of public wealth. when the ruling classes project themselves. in the final round be the one percent. we can all middle of the room six. million real new. in two thousand and sixteen the panama papers show the world with a tax haven the secrets two trillion united states dollars passed through most. in the amount of time that we've been in panama papers exposure that's what it shows a lot of money it really is. journalism it's an act of journalism looking at things
12:18 pm
that people want to keep secret and asking why would they want to keep these things secret. millions of most like from documents where examine. the all the people which basically have tried to get an advantage out of this sort of. newspaper. and probably other politician which were tough attacking other politicians the media were quick to find their targets such as the kings of morocco in saudi arabia the president of argentina several prime ministers. and russian president vladimir putin of course. in a car that had so i have sued so many newspapers for defamation some things don't just happen by chance it was very striking there were no more americans to go specially a lot of people from the brics countries specially brazil. russia and china
12:19 pm
their special project reveals what was missed in the media coverage. the panama chronicles. i had a great education a good job and a family that loved me. i never had to worry about how i would eat somewhere i would sleep. i'm facing christmas alone out on the streets of london. well you look to be honest. i thought the other boy like you go to school you know just wanted to still give up food for the hope of. her. but you don't really feel like a human being you know. and then. the guy just came over to me saw me and gave me a change of this book. prepare
12:20 pm
moscow time now headlining this america's invasion the u.s. army is on the lookout for software piracy so they can automatically post messages on social media stoking fears it could be used to ferment and rest. also the news today a diplomatic double whammy for president trump first by pulling out of next month's u.k. visit over the new u.s. embassies location then it's reportedly launched into a rant about immigrants. and a top goal school in britain decides it's time to stop labeling its people's girls but a controversial gender neutral policy now instead we hear from some of the locals about it. ridiculous i think girls are girls and boys are boys there's too many pressures on people who. tend to move towards gender
12:21 pm
neutrality. they're good afternoon for. you know encouraging life marty age to moscow so first then the u.s. army planning some online maneuvers we hear snow on the hunt for a software tool which could potentially fire of automatic responses on social media to test reactions and potentially try to sway opinion to get more detail from covering this story today over about balts law some of the past but this is something all the more sophisticated this plan kevin the classic boston been out there for ages and we know what they're usually used for that is sending out spam messages in some cases performing hacking attacks but it seems that uncle sam is after something much more sophisticated here if you go online and check out the
12:22 pm
u.s. federal business opportunities website you will come across a pentagon request from earlier this week and. this was something that really caught our attention what the u.s. army wants right now is a software system that will be able to translate between languages most notably russian korean farsi and arabic and we all know which countries these languages are spoken in and think this is kind of the point isn't it. this kind of technology this kind of translation technologies radio that i was not well along because i didn't get to the lists of the full requirements right here the tool is meant to understand and know how to use correctly the dialect slang and also a mode plus it must be a tool that is capable of analysis and the things to be adeline are all these millions of posts replies and comments and these things will be analyzed for
12:23 pm
emotion and sentiment that's how complicated gets so many layers to it so the key question is again it's probably overused but what's it going to be used for potentially well what the army wants to do is for the program to be able to communicate with the users online maybe not one hundred percent like human being but somewhere close to that if we just take a look at one requirement that i have printed out right here it is the ability to generate at least three or up to ten unique statements derived from the original social media statement while retaining the meaning and the tone of the original again the software monitor and adeline as its own impact from the messages that it sends then it just plus it also needs to be self-taught in a way that it can learn from its own mistakes and then improve an upgrade which provides potentially unprecedented opportunities for influencing opinion on life and company are going to notice the irony of this big plan is that it's on the
12:24 pm
heels of the us leaders complaining about all the potential fuss about online interference. other parties other countries really were in in the case when russian troll farms and bats they were all over the media news about that the first question that i asked the pentagon what is your intention guys for this particular new projects we sent them out your request to comment they didn't get back to us for now but the languages are either regions will give you a hint and also some experts have already told us that it's part of the u.s. campaign could be to expand their online influence in capabilities something that they have been up to for years but really the sophistication of this new project machines being able to analyze the emotions and the sentiment of comments online or something alarming it trying to be up to more detail of we discussed the issue
12:25 pm
we're going to say will supply really a billion also former five agents these are the tools. what they really want to do is be able to monitor royce communications or any kind of communications text and be able to assess it and. check it for threats or things like that or even. from some of the manipulation programs even respond. and try to manipulate the other person at the other end so i mean all intelligence agencies have had this is one of their objectives white papers are generally circulated among contractors who do business with the government so it is a little unusual to see these things out in the public as far as i know the most obvious interpretation would be that this is a pushback against the allegations that have been made consistently for the last eighteen months about so-called russian troll farms influencing elections across the west and it's interesting to see that the languages that they're advertising
12:26 pm
for are the language of iran and of course north korea and russia said it would be a bit of a sort of give away about which countries they want to be targeting. another day another headline from president trump this time he's pulled out of visiting britain next month he says because he's unhappy with the expensive brand spanking new u.s. embassy in london. reason i canceled my trip is not so big fan of the stray sions have been sold perhaps the best located in finest embassy in london for peanuts only to build a new enough location for one point two billion dollars deal once with. this is what all the who is about is the new u.s. embassy in the area of nine elms which is being regenerated into sort of an embassy quarter century prince the public next week donald trump was supposed to arrive in february or was widely expected that you'd be cutting the ribbon and that's not
12:27 pm
happening any more clearly the old building of the u.s. embassy on that was on the sort of grand old square in the very heart of the city in the center of mayfair which many people know is the most expensive location on the monopoly board but the interesting thing about the president's tweets is that there was a slight error and he accused the obama administration of selling that old building for peanuts it was in fact the bush administration before him and there have been suggestions that this whole embassy rau is a way of vertigo attention away from the fact that perhaps the president didn't feel like he was going to be particularly welcome here in the u.k. almost two million people has signed a petition against him coming here claiming perhaps the most british reason a rule that would embarrass the queen donald trump arriving here the mayor of london city con hasn't been particularly welcoming either he wasn't impressed with
12:28 pm
donald trump's travel ban i don't think we should roll out the red carpet to the president of the u.s. in the circumstances where his policies go against everything we stand for. after this latest incident it's increasingly clear that any official visit from president to britain would not be welcome. and special relationships go this one looking special for all the wrong reasons right now we know diplomacy hasn't been donald trump strong suit but perhaps a year into the job he is managing to surprise us even himself because he has reportedly insulted highty and. other nations as well on top of this route with the u.k. according to media reports he referred to highty and a number of other countries as quote undesirable second rate countries and not in those words the white house hasn't even denied that he said it instead
12:29 pm
they've issued quite a bit perplexing statement saying that in washington politicians choose to fight from foreign countries but president trump will always fight for the american people so. with haiti now rumors that they could be the island nation could be recalling its ambassador to washington and probably a few bridges to build and fences to mend for u.s. diplomats all in a day's work or should i say a few tweets for the u.s. president. well u.s. president far from diplomatic tone appeared to be spreading to now washington this new netherlands come under fire from journalists at his very first news conference he refused to defend previous remarks on the influence of a new era but he's not the only one trying to give the media this. but most of all i said i issued
12:30 pm
a statement and i'm not revisiting that you should know last year you said this is important is that something you believe you just want to. i'm not sure this is an issue. why don't you i'm sort of question my answer the question that this is not how it works just one piece of that has an end yes i answered questions. we're going to use cluster weapons in the end this is not the question on tuesday just focusing your wife but i guess there are no yes. on the top and i found. lou that. another of the big stories we're keeping our eye on.
