be done to alleviate this issue but what we do know is that we own day number nine this is the second week over a nationwide protests and we understand that at least seventy prisons are blockaded yet again today now they started over a week ago because three security guards at a prison in the north of france were attacked by an inmate a convicted terrorist now since that attack took place in these protests have been happening they have been more assaults of attacks on prison guards in prisons in france including two prison guards who were attacked on sunday evening now that the prison guards say that they were is incredibly dangerous they fear sometimes to go to work they fear for their lives because of the types of prisoners that they dealing with they say that in some prisons like that largest prison in europe that sometimes the inmates refuse to go back to their jails and this is a prison with a high number apparently of radicalized inmates so these are just some of the
concerns that the security guards have they also say that they are very very understaffed with the suggestion that sometimes is not largest prison in europe there is only one security guard for every ninety inmate now i've been talking to some of the security guards would be lining the other concerns. natalia to the our work is very dangerous where with tins of aggression and insult we experience violence which is not taken into consideration by the government. it has become more and more difficult for us to act i've seen physical aggression towards my colleagues every day but it happens every time we open the doors to support the new city we denounce the working indications of our colleagues in the prison the security conditions the numerous acts of aggression against them we want salaries to be increased for those who face such risks and work as well as an increase in personnel and better security. for those talks are continue. being with the justice
minister between her and the unions we do know that all monday she offered to create an extra eleven hundred posts in the prison service over the next two years but union said that that just wasn't enough we also know that the president might go on this said that he will unveil a grand plan that the end of next month to reform the entire prison system in france but that still more than a month away and the question is ease action needed soon or the prison guards to remain blockading so many of the prisons in france say it is needed sooner because they need to have more secure conditions to work in immediately. ok charlotte i'm sure you'll keep us updated on any developments on these ongoing protests child it depends who they're reporting from paris. the f.b.i. has lost crucial text messages sent by its employees which could have shed light on alleged bias within the agency particularly over the so-called trunk russia
investigation u.s. attorney general and jeff sessions has already said the justice department is looking into what happened while republicans are demanding a special counsel be set up over the matter from washington his samir khan months of text messages between two f.b.i. staffers linked to the trump and rush appropriate gone missing one of the agencies peter struck he oversaw the investigation into alleged russian interference now he was also part of robert muller's team that was looking into suppose the pollution between trump and the problem prior to that the clinton e-mail investigation which went nowhere and then there's lisa paige a lawyer for the department of justice who also worked for robert muller the couple payment to prominence back in december when their private text conversations were released to congress god hillary should win. i know. and maybe your man just to you where you are because your man to protect the country from that man. thanks it's absolutely true that we're very very fortunate
and of course i'll try and approach it that way. these text messages proved that both struck and page were biased in favor of hillary and the messages even hint at some nefarious political activity so when they wanted to dig deeper it turned out the rest of their conversation had disappeared the f.b.i. ascribed the dates lost to misconfiguration issues related to its provisioning and so for upgrades the conflicts with the f.b.i. has collection capabilities but let's look at the time frame these text messages december fourteenth two thousand and sixteen roommates seventeen twenty seventy and when did muller's investigation into russia well you can start oh look may seventeenth twenty seventeen surprisingly convenient the timing is just too coincidental seems that they were trying to plant the evidence somehow as an insurance policy thinking that trump had no way of getting elected and then when he did scrambling in order to try to stop the election or to create the necessity of
an impeachment of trump they were conspiring inside the f.b.i. to figure out how to catch trump on some sort of you know criminal activity having a russian connection russian money laundering being involved with putin in the in the russian trump collusion of which they provided zero evidence and the f.b.i. is not the only organization with crucial data fanatical proceedings has inadvertently gone missing the national security agency says it had by mistake deleted information it had earlier pledged to keep the data was related to the presidential surveillance program which included warrantless wiretapping during george w. bush's time in office. the p.s.p. internets contant that are merged great cheerier that were broadly used to delete dead of a certain type in response to mission requirements to free up space and improve the formants of the backup system the n.s.a. has no reason to believe at this time that the continent data was specifically
targeted for deletion. with turkey's military campaign against the kurds while underway in northern syria the conflict seems to have spilled over into germany a mass fight broke out between almost two hundred people a turkish airlines task at hand over airport a large pro kurdish protest was taking place against turkey's actions in syria when our video news agency ruptly caught the moment it turned violent. was. hundred. one thousand. one thousand. and pro began its latest military operation against kurdish groups in syria last week
claiming the kurdish forces are terrorists the brawl in hanover after themselves and police but fortunately using patterns to separate the two groups the authorities also deployed twenty vehicles to the scene. still to come several countries away but whether to buy a russian made state of the art missile defense system will have the details after this break. hey everybody i'm stephen bob taft hollywood guy in the suspects every proud american first of all i'm just george bush and intervened to say this is my buddy max famous financial guru and well she's a little bit different i'm not a lincoln lawyer no no no one knows up with all the drama happening in our country and i'm shooting the road have some fun meet everyday americans. and hopefully
start to bridge the gap this is the great american people. welcome back to the program russia's defense minister has revealed that moscow is in talks with several nations over the purchase of a russian made state of the out missile defense system which i can join the live now with more details and let's start with the advantages of this particular system
high the deer are well internationally it is described as one of the best air defense systems in the world with a range of about four hundred kilometers and the ability to hit as many as eight hundred targets at the same time traveling at a speed of up to five kilometers a second i was going to say hour but no second and perhaps that's what explains the demand also russia is using the asked for a hundred in syria words job is to act as a shield for the russian army units in the country so let's take a look at the system in action.
it tell me which nations are interested in this well the russian army's top man didn't specify although he mentioned the regions some countries in the middle east and also in southeast asia that's the region that mr schorr eagle is currently on. sure and that wasn't the only sort of a teaser that came from the russian defense minister what he said was that whenever he's in talks with other army bosses from other countries there is always some discussion about potential contracts to buy some of russia's best defense tech so if we are to believe him soon we are meant to find out who's next to get the f.
four hundred mention the word next that must mean that russia has already sold some of these defense systems well for example turkey has already god a contract and i'll tell you what when these papers were signed it was big news this is what adds the spice to the story think about it turkey is a nato member and a key ally of the us in the region and it chooses russian made air defense systems to keep their skies safe someone else who's military might is all but dependent on america is saudi arabia and a few months ago the saudis and the russians agreed on a deal to purchase the system as well china is getting it india too so let's see if the next customer proves to be a surprise little bit of controversy there thanks very much for giving us an overview of what's happening there. one of the largest consulting firms in the
world ernst and young has been accused of multiple illegal dealings a former employee who says he was fired for every feeling the allegations disclose that the accounting giant is involved in bribery money laundering and the cover up of illicit gold perched from a conflict zones artie's. has the details of the story hidden in the court papers filed by this order to against his exposes could be one of the grandest smuggling scams greed money laundering and backdoor dealings measured in billions of dollars on. rehan is accusing one of the world's biggest auditing firms of covering up the tracks over dubai precious metals megacorp act one. ernst and young for an audit inspectors come to dubai and the first thing they see is a pile of moroccan gold buyers casually bundled up on a desk stacks of gold at a gold refinery could be business as usual except these bars are literally painted
silver in order to sneak them into dubai four to five tons of gold gold bars coated silver smuggled old to more cool arriving in dubai declared as gold when the team found the discussed it with with colucci the admitted this is the way of doing business with the with these moral consult lawyers inspectors do some more digging and what they reveal brings us to act two some of the precious metal in colossus coffers could be blood gold shuffling through papers auditor's discover the refinery was more than happy to shake hands with small mining operations in sudan and the democratic republic of congo apparently colossi asked for no licenses offering cash in hand in exchange for gold proceeds from search sales and conflict torn countries are known to directly fuel gang wars which are responsible for hundreds of civilian deaths soldiers naam group leaders see in control of the gold
mines as a way to money guns and power for forty two of the ruthlessly often targeting civilians in the process so ernst and young employees calm through colossus cash transactions that's when we get to act three apparently the company deals in cash almost as much as in conventional bank transfers that billions of dollars go into a legal black hole impossible to trace so the auditor's diligently record every failure of the dubai giant but there's no pat on the bag for them from the boss we . i requested a meeting with the babies to get it when they realized that we're not going to alter our findings or change them they went ahead and. changed their own guidelines in such a way that our findings and our final conclusions will not be made public ernst and young have denied allegations they were in cahoots with the group the dubai refinery is still in business saying there's been no material impact on their
ability to operate or trade i'm just really hunt the man who led the team and expose the alleged wrongdoings says the audit ing giant branded him a troublemaker and sacked him so is blowing the whistle a noble thing or just a falls here and in this saga it's left up to the court. and of r.t. . so round up of our top stories don't forget to check us out on social media on twitter you tube and our website that's all to don't call i'll be back at the top of the out with more of the latest news so do stay with us. for the sand here from us and. from what. i know that are are more troubling that there are rather tough it out for america isn't that. going
to lead to but i'm going to catch him then you can keep an eye on what i have floozie channel for truffle that it. doesn't. work then i'm on my machine with a lot of. them are the. members of the hey how you want to do it. and get the toll free first choice for the i'm yours or yours and they are trying mysterious said. someone else for the name after the couple fronts around mr hates it for jim and then boy i hope that our family. hey everybody i'm stephen bob. taft hollywood guy you know suspects every proud
american first of all i'm just george washington and r.v. to say this is my buddy max famous financial guru well he's a little bit different i'm not a lincoln no no one knows up with all the drama happening in our country i'm shooting the road have some fun meet everyday americans coming and hopefully start to bridge the gap this is the great american people.
this is the report we're a bit coy my enemy we were here a year ago never before it was like mine under a talk to broad peer she said this was their year toy seventeen to go to all kinds of move crazy yeah it sure did they're experiencing a bit of a pullback. yes there is quite a little bit of a pullback if you want to call fifty percent correction and more. you and i are quite used to this we've seen this many times sixteen ninety percent corrections and the market so who knows it could fall even further it could the two hundred day moving average by the way is at eight thousand it could fall beyond that who knows but you know what has collapsed to nothing that is currently i'm the headline reads collapse of construction giant with forty three thousand employees globally sparks fear and may have so max you know kirlian is
a two hundred year old infrastructure company which builds hospitals schools prisons just to line in total the firm participated in four hundred fifty public service projects in the united kingdom this is part of the p.f. ideals of private finance and initiatives this is just one of the companies a two hundred year old infrastructure company collapse has been liquidated i saw that shareholders might actually get between less than a penny and six p. back to the pound invested in the company remember the reason why i bring this up is because bitcoin was birthed into the world january third two thousand and nine the genesis block and in that genesis block it mentioned the collapse of the banks and the u.k. that were being bailed out two hundred year old banks were being bailed out now we see two hundred year old. infrastructure companies being bailed out yeah it's great really juxtaposition of big boy and the crilly and story and as you point out it's
echoes the two thousand and eight bank collapse that spawned the creation of bitcoin as a way to fight back against what is hyper financialization trillion is a victim of financialization just like many companies in the u.k. and around the world private marketeers buy up lots of stock they load these companies up with debt while extracting equity and then they let the company cole lapse under the weight of it's own debt the p.f. ice games were over there in the u.k. it's a quasi government private sector deal it was all was an all is a slush fund we've actually been reporting on this for a member of years saying these deals will collapse as guaranteed now cruelly and house collapse as we predicted. exactly as we said a would collapse because you cannot grow trees to the sky like you try to do with trillions well by the way just so you know where we're here in miami where the brick out area of miami and this is you might see some boats and stuff going by in the background and there's
a bridge over there just so you might not be alarmed people get scared out there when they hear noises that they don't know what they are because they sometimes think we're on a green screen but they gather points about karelian all these other p.f. i companies are also getting whacked their shares are tumbling the government is actually looking at their balance sheets and seeing what's going on there one issue that arose with karelian as the share company's revenues were crashing they were having to borrow more and more short term money and what did you say these are private these are public projects the government of the united kingdom can borrow at all times four hundred fifty year lows can private companies know here's a tweet from joel benjamin karelian was trying to turn itself around while being charged a rate of interest of eight to. ten percent above libel or for its emergency loans this is why private companies should not deliver core services for chip pool a
rated government able to borrow a point five percent madness of course you know the taxpayer was always on the hook for that ten eight to ten percent above life or that banks were right but let's take a look at this the genesis of this this was a way for the u.k. government i believe was started under. major john major and change debt off the government's balance sheet and to put her on the private sector to make the debt to g.d.p. ratio look healthier thus allowing the government to borrow more and of course this was a recipe for disaster it created moral hazard on an epic scale and guaranteed to collapse as it has collapsed and yes the entire structure this entire p.f. i stutter is collapsing will the bank of england bail them out probably and again this is why people kind of rush to pinpointing gold because you can't prove either of those well whether or not the bank of england bailed somehow is one thing they
obviously have not stepped in the company is liquidation its collapse many of the biggest banks in the united kingdom are owed money over two billion pounds we don't know we're going to it's you know obviously what what was the warren buffett called these derivatives he called it like a speed get a you never and you never find the end of it well here. it'll obviously be in bankruptcy for quite a while who have to figure out what's what they actually own but one of the things that a lot of these companies do is they get the contracts they got these contracts by basically underpricing them to get it over you know be awarded the contract over the competition they couldn't deliver at the price but they had already flipped it they a lot of these companies flip it to foreign holders in offshore entities and wall street points out that karelian was one of four comp. the other three being balfour beatty interservice and cheer there pocketed over three hundred million pounds flipping p.f.
i schools and hospitals to the highest bidder and other words many of karelians p.f. i assets are already in the hands of foreign investors meaning that while the government will have to take over many of the services karelian can no longer provide and may still have to pay leasing cost to the foreign owned firms that currently and sold out to otherwise those firms may sue the government for a lost profits this is a remarkable chain of events because you have u.k. companies are going to be privatized because the private sector is more efficient so they take it out of the hands of the government and then these assets end up in the funds and public pension funds or foreign governments to pay and interest income to foreigners supplied by u.k. citizens so it's a transplant of state assets with reliable income out of the u.k. to foreign governments you know we you and i have pointed out that these p.f. ideals have been very expensive to the u.k.
taxpayer and on this bit for this headline then we're going to go on to another headline relating to this but for this headline with wall street dot com this is all happening at the chew cost of p s i is becoming apparent in april twenty seventeen a bombshell report by the national audit office warned that the price tag for paying five firms would reach eight point six billion pounds in twenty eighteen alone in total taxpayers oh a mind watering one hundred twenty one point four billion pounds on public projects that are worth just fifty two point nine billion pounds and the compound interest continues to grow i mean it's not a direct bailout in terms of ok the company went bankrupt and it's going under people losing their jobs pensions are being destroyed and the government stopped bailing them out at this hour but a lot of that debt will end up on the balance sheet of the bank of england they buy all. toxic debt and then they'll say there's no inflation so if keep interest rates ultra low which means no income for wages and no income for savers so it is
a stealth bail out always a stealth fell out they'll keep printing printing printing parts and printing the value for money continues to press against that point so now we're going to move on to the next headline about this and it's very very british i think it's good to end on this very british headline karelians highly inappropriate pay packets criticized the main lobby group representing u.k. bosses has savaged the highly inappropriate pay packets awarded to directors running the now collapsed construction dying karoly on the institute of directors also accuse directors and shareholders of the stricken firm of failing to provide appropriate oversight of the company which is involved in a host of major government projects and vital public services and slumps into compulsory liquidation so roger barker head of corporate governance at the institute of directors says it's highly inappropriate that these men wear warranted these massive bonuses throughout the basically collapse of this company they also a year ago did basically change their own governance structure whereby their
bonuses are not subject to call back specifically they removed if the company collapses well the problem is and i've said this before the british character views that type of fraud as quote unquote clever ninety nine percent of the british population is president of the fact that they've had their wallet stolen and beaten about the head by fraudsters will say they're so clever how do i get into. how do i steal money like this right they don't see this as a shortcoming they see this as the british character is right up there with bar might have bulldog's is theft so there's no outrage against it because there would be an outrage against the queen and the flag first of all the second of all they're going to have an inquiry to decide whether or not to have an inquest whether to form a committee whether to explore the past. ability if in fact there needs to be a discussion about possibly prosecuting the alleged crime and that will go on for
seven or eight years the statute of limitations expire and the clever robbers will you know run away and i want to say bravo newsnight will be your clever little things we love you because you're so british what's it but the marmite uppers french frankenstein like a canary because you're a frickin idiot. ok well again i'm going to read you this on the home quotes because it's quite important to understand the. you know the scale of what it has been don. and how. you know the language is and how to get out clauses are already in there so this guy roger barker he's the head of corporate governance at the institute of directors said that the collapse of the company suggests that effective governance was lacking at corralling them yeah that we must now consider if the board and shareholders have exercised appropriate oversight prior to the collapse i want to make a point about this is that the share price has been falling steadily since twenty
fifteen and then it really started to crash in two thousand and sixteen and plunge this summer so who is short that's the whole time who is making money the whole time i guess max tell me who george just more no no no it was hedge funds hedge funds are shorting this they figured it out they knew it despite hedge funds shorting wildly it was the the most the most shorted stock in all of europe ok so how did the government not know how did in that condition the government continued to give them billions of pounds of new contracts because they're corrupt because it's a constitutional monarchy where there are no citizens there are only subjects of the crown and they wanted this to del boy economy you know member the show fools who are fools who are only whores only fools and horses only fools and horses where the that the hero is a schemer you know this is just on an epic multi-billion dollar skill that's the
national character. that's churchillian churchill was a school schemer. awful guy and they make these great movies about him but he's a kleptocrat. well that's it for this half of that chis report stay tuned for the second half a whole lot more if state just the second much more. join me every thursday on the all excited i'm sure and i'll be speaking to guest of the world of politics school business i'm show business i'll see you then. when lawmakers manufacture consent to step into the public will. when the ruling class isn't protected.
