11:03 am
welcome back well to go through some of this week's headlines as a broadcaster a former liberal democrat member of parliament lembit oh big lembit how was last night great i was launching my thesis on why the lib dems really need to move on from just being fixated about having a second referendum on the european union as long as they do that is two party politics and they're not one of those two parties well the leader of your party vince cable longer comes on this show why that is let's go to our first story here from the israeli paper her it. says israeli spies ukranian honey traps the dirty tricks used by cambridge on a little far behind facebook data breach big story developing drawing in our very own prime minister here the breach is actually because they were filmed secretly saying well we do facilitate these kinds of actions to compromise your competitors or your opponents or news i thought russian meddled with the elections and all
11:04 am
israeli spies and british intelligence this is based in cambridge that was born in cambridge where the ways as you know well that's the link there's the link. anyway always leads you into each other for news if there's not actually likes you with the prime minister has been looking into this the same techniques potentially for electoral political ads with the daily. male yes that's have a look at this one online says traits and i wants to use an army of computerized mind readers to help win the next election and this was before this was back in twenty sixteen twenty sixteen yes the crucial thing here is less the timing rather than the connection this once again goes back to cambridge and let it go so we now see this connection between two reason may be secret service the honeytrap exploits and cambridge and there is nothing nothing in all of this to say that tourism a arranged honeytrap is against nothing at all or me calling it all cambridge
11:05 am
analytical refuses to comment perhaps because they want to sustain the privacy of their clients but it's a very opportune time for this to come out given all the other accusations pointed in other directions and i'm thinking of no particular country when i say that well i should say the boss of facebook mark zuckerberg says he's going to be interviewed by the information commissioner whose office is in this building show where we're all very excited here you'll be listening in someone's obviously been listening in on the former french president let's take this from a libyan newspaper as hot water for soccer as he had libyan express says sarkozy taken in french police custody over libya funding of his two thousand and seven election campaign i get this it's reported that there were three suitcases though did with cash allegedly coming from colonel could all the allegations presume he denied by carla bruni and former president soakers in more than that he refused to respond to the summons initially he wouldn't cooperate with the police while he is cooperating now in a sense but it's
11:06 am
a pretty big deal again the figures are stupendously large retainers until proven guilty ups ups might make the news the u.n. security council when they discuss libya today all you can just say took money from good absolutely and you got their first action because we have to be careful not to say that he's guilty of anything this compare that to how the russians have been treated in terms of the soul's pre events where we can. assume guilt for that proving evidence so there are some double standards going on here well of course some people said the libya war was all just about sarkozy all the sarkozy presumably turned against his benefactor would be the allegation i complicate was about oil the sweetest oil in the world and you've got a story here for the morning star about oil or it is demonstrations it's a variation on the oil theme this is about fracking morningstar says oil companies bid to silence until frack is crumbles turns out that u.k. oil and gas company has sought a sweeping injunction to try and stop protestors from excellent demonstrations of
11:07 am
protest as in free speech well i'm actually equivocal about fracking but i'm not concerned about having frack as demonstrating that's their right they could be heard by the earthquakes or the earthquakes rather they see now you're in very similar am i saying that the thing is that sixty thousand pounds on additional security has been paid which in itself is possibly ok it's a free speech question here are we living in a country where the right to demonstrate is being limited because these people get in the way of big business we have the right to protest is going to this very tragic story redolent of the spanish civil war arguably some people say it was syria was about oil take us to this it's a gender based story the telegraph reported gender based his agenda based henri it is a courageous woman campbell who joined all female fighting it killed in syria why because she is the not the first brit to be killed but the first woman to be killed in a very complicated situation now she was fighting with the kurdish women's
11:08 am
protection units again backed by the united states well yes and our friend in northern syria against i still who of course had a complicated relationship with the west in the past so the whole thing is a big mess over there now the west is culpable in turning up the heat in my view in more than one way turkish jet killed this british citizen british subject supported by. american money does that mean under article five of nato the united states that alone britain can attack turkey well dunster member that's the big mess because we are walking into a dangerous area which could be more in century than the situation between washington north korea that over thank you well within the past twenty four hours u.s. president donald trump here between tweeting is really meeting with saudi crown prince mohammed bin soundman on the heels of his visit to london where he met with to resume and the queen the u.s. saudi alliance though will arguably get less media attention than who trump will
11:09 am
fire next joining me now from florida is dr gene allowed in who serves on the president's advisory board who was a national media surrogate during trump's dramatic twenty sixteen race for the white house do you know thanks for coming on going underground how powerful is the presidency given trump's inability it seems to stop one investigation after another against him well it is those investigations against him that are proof positive of exactly how powerful this president is and how scared to death the establishment and the elite inside the beltway in washington d.c. are of him this president has come in and made sweeping radical reforms that have completely unleashed our free market economics and that is scaring those who like the way things were done in the old traditional ways with the old traditional establishment it scared them to death so it is it is because of his power that these investigations continue at the moment day here in britain we're getting
11:10 am
headlines about some kind of alliance allegedly between israeli u.k. intelligence and facebook changing elections in africa let alone some implications here in britain but why is it over there your media thinks trump was elected only because of the russians. it's interesting i don't know because you know the things that we've seen. in our media prove zero efforts on anyone involved with the with the trump campaign to to do anything with any foreign governments we see quite the contrary on the other side from the democrats and so i think time will tell the how can you be the rubber ruler is investigating alleged collusion between the clinton campaign. the former in my six agent christopher steele that deserved to be making the headlines over there you know what the media's going to report what they're going to report and a lot of times that the u.s.
11:11 am
media as you know is going to always be against any conservatives who are holding office but i don't think that i have a lot of confidence in mohler frankly i don't have a lot of confidence in anyone who's left over from the establishment that existed prior to this president who was obviously a reformer in every way so my confidence is only going to come from those that the president has put in place or are those that have come along after the president where i believe we're seeing now a much more transparent government a much a government that is much closer to the united states people then then we've seen in the past and beyond that i just don't trust much of anyone obviously manufacturing workers are going to applaud policies like the tariffs on human steel but when you talk about the establishment it was trump who brought in establishment people then to then to fire them arguably i'm not sure exactly what instance you're
11:12 am
speaking about right now but i will say that i think that what the president has done in terms of bringing business back to the united states and repatriating jobs that have been overseas what he's done even and i and i personally i'm not a tariffs person but the unfair trade war that was happening against the united states from other governments i think what the president did was a. masterful negotiating tactics that i think in the long run will work out very well economically not just for the united states but honestly for our allies and even for trade on the world scale and you think that i mean we're also getting headlines here but came we journalists are good to all about the weather. trouble needs has a legitimate presidency they're all just designed to undercut him being able to carry through policies like the presidency is very legitimate and all you have to do is look at his base which is more solid and more. i would say
11:13 am
fervent then any base that i have i have ever seen in american politics most free market people love president reagan we all love president reagan but they really love this president as long as he keeps creating jobs and now we're up to so many jobs i've lost count somewhere as long as he keeps creating jobs and he keeps making american life a little easier for the average american citizen with bonuses that are coming back to them through their companies and you know increase homeownership among black families you know this president has shown that his economic. hope for our future in america is completely colorblind he wants it for everyone across the board in america and even beyond that as i said and so i don't think that you know the other side isn't going to want to listen to this because they are very used to business happening as usual they like their cushy parties in their elite
11:14 am
places in washington d.c. they like not having to work very hard to get to get big fat paychecks and big fat pensions this president is changing all that so it's not that surprising that they don't like him but reagan of course developed a big relationship with moscow it has to be honest i know it just every day on the talk shows in the united states but why doesn't donald trump slam and criticize. as russian well i think that there have definitely been some reprisals for the things that he thinks that russia has done bad i think that he sees every country for its good and its bad and its possible threats to the united states and its possible advantage to the united states so i think that the president is going to stand firmly against governments that are going to try to meddle in our elections certainly or any governments that are going to try to meddle with us economically or any governments that are going to try unfair trade practices against the united states certainly in these sorts of crimes of war or nuclear threat are going to be
11:15 am
met swiftly and abruptly by this president he is fearless in that and he's made that clear but on the other hand if they can if there's a place for us to negotiate even with governments as rogue and ridiculous as north korea the president is going to try to stand on the side of united states and eliminate that nuclear threat and i think that's what any president of any country should always be doing for their own country it's just that it's been a long time since america had a president that cared more about america than they did about foreign nations and that's why you can do grown prince mohammed bin solomon in saudi arabia when trump surely knows of fifteen of the nineteen hijackers on nine eleven move from saudi arabia i think the president has dealt so well with terror that it is completely undeniable where he stands on that issue you look at isis used to be an american headlines every single day terrorist acts were happening every single day at least
11:16 am
on a small scale somewhere in the united states he has eliminated virtually a limited that threat at the time the american election began to mount when the president was just getting into the presidential election the number one concern on the hearts and minds of americans was isis today isis is in the back shadows somewhere no one thinks about them no one talks about them our concerns are completely different and he has a limited that threat so i don't think. there's any argument where this president stands on terror and how firmly and how swiftly he will eliminate those who presented terrorist threat to the united states dr jean aloud thank you and that's it for the show but will be back on saturday to investigate today's claims against russia made by a minority government he did raise or may have prime minister's question still that he would do if he wants out of the nineteen years to the day britain began attacking yugoslavia without approval from the un security council.
11:17 am
the far right. isn't just on the march it's taking violent my daughter's action i don't like it that. i see these organizations which are all usually split into which we feel different names how do you view that. a. complex web of british national. level telling you on the idea that dropping bombs brings police to the chickenhawk forcing you to fight the battles. that you saw try to tell you that will be gossiping probably by falsehood most reporters. as he tells you are not
11:18 am
pulling out by. all the hawks that we along with all. it would appear the more the political left and their allies in the corporate media tap donald trump the more we learn about the corrupt behavior of the deep state the firing of andrew mackay but the f.b.i. has to kick some point is this the beginning of a perfect. time about email bend of the entire usa needle my dad. and i mean i'm going to. be. making the move to india that. you may believe does have images consistent if you
11:19 am
want. to. know by whether natural again i don't see a good deal i'd say because the. case is told seems to come from cable you can't change false. few. the sun.
11:20 am
this hour's headlines on. facebook is on the fire off or it's revealed that the day . i understand that's the party line which is whatever whatever. you feel well.
11:21 am
one of the. crowded marketplace. a very warm welcome to you. delete facebook has been trending on social media for it was revealed that the tech giant fail to protect the millions of users from being used for political purposes the scandal involves a data gathering cold. it worked with multiple u.s. presidential campaigns including donald trump and reportedly harvested the details of as many as fifty facebook profiles for its operations the company is now under investigation even suspending its chief executive. picks up
11:22 am
a story. political campaigns have changed they're no longer about running the most t.v. spots or spending the most money they're about to spend the smartest money finally put it's cool communications company that really knows how to pitch and then they came rich and it's a house prestigious and academic connotations to again very convincing small money must mean smart ideas writes we had a unique extra layer of data about personality decisionmaking and motivation this creates an unparalleled rich and detailed view of voters in the issues they care about so you know exactly who to target with exactly what type of message cambridge and i think a claim they can do all this with a mix of data analysis and strategic communication that current list is want to base about trump cruise cost and the list goes on so impressed so far but how exactly do cambridge and it's a target faces a company now accused of using the private data of millions of facebook users to
11:23 am
directly target potential american voters facebook is under growing pressure to explain how to protect americans personal information from people wanting to exploit it for electoral game data analytics firm that harvested information from millions of americans without their permission tricked by tens and conditions wow suddenly doesn't seem so impressive especially when you end up in a legal feud with the social media giants and it tends outs cambridge on earth to have a not small skeletons in their closet according to britain's channel four news and they're on the cover investigation they posed as potential clients interested in the outcome of the share lankan elections last month they found cambridge on the list because secretly works to influence over two hundred elections worldwide and their tactics when so squeaky clean the two fundamental human drivers when it comes to taking information on board effectively our hopes and fears and many of those
11:24 am
unspoken and even unconscious. it's no good fighting an election campaign on the facts because actually it's all about emotion but that's not what cambridge i wanted to cut publicly admit of course publicly they say that advertising is not coercive they'd also tell you they never use any dirty tactics by us you mentioned intelligence gathering as well as part of the mix didn't you yes we have relationships and partnerships with specialist organizations that do that kind of work you know who the opposition is you know their secrets you know their tactics since some girls around to the candidates house we have lots of history of such things with years of practice cambridge and then let's go have become real prize that having the result they want if we are working and then we can set up fake i.d.'s and websites we can go in as students doing research projects attached to university we can be tourists there are so many options we can look at i've had
11:25 am
lots of experience in this at cambridge i'm a little we are creating the future of political campaigning. so it's a story with twists tens of action meddling in the minds of voters using dirty tricks but something is missing oh and the narrative that russia must be behind it all now that it's an impressive result. and donald trump's campaign was not the first to use facebook's data gathering for political purposes a former official on barack obama's campaign revealed how in twenty twelve they're obtained much more personal information than their republican rivals carol davis and i did it was all thanks to loopholes in facebook's privacy terms at the time facebook twenty five election we got people to opt in and the privacy policies at that time on facebook were that if they opted in they could tell us who all their friends were where this gets complicated is that freak facebook out. so they shut off the feature to the day is out there you can take it back to the democrats have
11:26 am
this information invited richard goodstein a former adviser to hillary clinton's campaign as well as legal and media analyst lionel to discuss whether the political use of social media inside america is more dangerous than the claims of potential foreign interference looks like it's undisputed that they did things that either were clearly against the law campaign finance laws the involvement of foreigners in u.s. election campaigns let alone kind of the moral approach of basically pretending to be something that they weren't. so they either clearly would over the line or they they went right up to it and i think that's what investigators where the state attorneys general i'm sure congress will look into it whether this justice department looks into it because donald trump was the beneficiary of his campaign that they worked with i wouldn't exactly hold my breath on that happening the entire point is being missed here is not cambridge analytic is the fact that
11:27 am
facebook is a tool a proxy if you will of that government and it's a service june it it was a it was conceived it through darpa through c. money this this fading that oh do you think they you. use the information against their are you kidding me facebook apple everything that we do is basically sucking up every bit of information we have where has the world been you're living in and the pan optic on and when barak obama was the u. beneficiary of facebook data i'll be not cold and gleaned by these characters like especially don't forget legs and in action american you say that and that immediately turns it's the dog whistle went missing
11:28 am
the point this is about a surveillance world that we live in that's being utilized by everybody constantly look we've already had facebook why publicly about what they did and didn't know they finally had to come clean right because i actually think they have a bit of a guilty conscience having worked with the trump campaign to do things that are frankly kind of un-american so you know we'll see i understand that's the kind of party line which is whatever whatever the russian box may have done was to war by you know this large things we'll see what did they do that was un-american what well again they picked they they ran messages that pitted blacks against whites they got under the skin of blacks because some of them claim that they were whites were coming after them and vice versa you're telling me that all of a sudden the russians are who are the russians is the russian government that lattimer putin is it the kremlin some guy with a russian name who are these russians so let me get this straight when we had prayer president bar barak obama who basically went and absolutely not only
11:29 am
colluded with but actively campaigned against bibi netanyahu no problem then he when we guarding brags that he said you're going to be waiting in the queue if you don't or if you vote for braggs it may be also when it actually involved himself in the scottish independence movement as well. so we we don't seem to care about this and i can't believe it that we have gone from that to this day miniscule didn't even miss microstamping buying a facebook ad and somebody is going to say oh wait a minute hold it i was going to vote for hillary clinton but now what i just how did you say this facebook ad that said i mean really this is it with all due respect this is the best the russians have facebook if lionel is of the view that all those billions of dollars that spent worldwide on advertising or news channels
11:30 am
like arts here and others is just absolutely just wasting money just you might as well throw it out the window if that's your attitude then obviously i'm not going to persuade him or anybody who believes that that by you know that's what he's going to affect anybody's opinion line oh no she's me i didn't really know what so i said my point is my point is my point is that yes i think facebook should be ashamed of itself because the evidence seems to be that it knew exactly what it was what its role in this was and in a sense it was kind of facilitating this in the interest of making a buck and i think that's wrong. you arms deals became the main topic for the talks between the saudi crown prince and the u.s. president on tuesday donald trump found a rather creative way to present his potential customer with more military hardware . or even. five hundred thirty three million dollars.
