internationalism in the very heart of. the thirty bucks a month before i should try to get you know how fabulous i love. you guys i was. and it was all very closely. at that. worst showing in the white house of the day when you guys. minutes from me. i want you to watch what we're about to give you got a good i'm glad. you guys i'm out of money and this is breaking. today in dallas texas george w. bush was joined by the four other living presidents to commemorate his newly opened
presidential let the dedication of this building was truly ocean experience for all the friends let me say that i'm filled with admiration for you and dave gratitude for you about the great contributions you've made to the most needy people on earth . i was impressed that president bush invites. different decisions if we choose on the decisions he was facing one of those interesting things about his life so we know president bush the man. what president clinton said is absolutely true to know the man of the like them a. lifetime to lead a country as brave and as noble as the united states. whatever challenges come before us i will always believe our nation's best days lie ahead. thank you bush well of course america's best days are ahead after
all how quick possibly topple the wrongs committed during your presidency illegal wars of aggression the blatant use of torture against alleged enemies the war on privacy and that's just scratching the surface of course a lot of media was tuned into bush's tears nobody mentioned is true medal of honor that of a war criminal and nobody pointed out how this library is blatantly white washing his legacy and interestingly one of the one of the same day the government lionizing bush iraq is falling into a bloody civil war experience in another series of bombings just today that left thirty five dead at the same time as this under reported tragedy is making headlines the media is also ramping up the rhetoric of syria's chemical weapons as a precursor to innovate sound familiar and the irony of all this just made my head explode so grab some pain pills and stick around to break said.
for weeks now of reporting on the show and working off air to raise awareness about the dangers of the cyber bill system it's a bill that would allow private corporations to share private user information with a federal government under the auspices of protecting us from the looming cyber pearl harbor well today the bill essentially died in the senate but that's only for of good news so what if i told you that all the provisions in this bill that are such a threat to privacy have already been part of everyday practice by the federal government . as troublesome as the sounds the department of defense has been implementing a secret cyber security program that monitor online activities in the same exact way that cisco would have realized and we know this because of documents recently obtained by the electronic privacy information center. through a recent foyer request and a statement issued about their findings at stated these documents concerning a collaboration between the defense department the department of homeland security
and private companies to allow government monitoring of private energy networks now some of you might wonder how the government could be getting away with this i mean don't we have privacy laws that would prevent the sort of agree just violation of our rights online well that's the million dollar question isn't it according to c.n.n.'s declan mccullagh who's been reporting on the docket findings senior obama administration officials secretly authorized interception of communications of networks operated by another in its service providers a practice of it. and our federal wiretapping law let me repeat that secret authorization of online spying against federal law guys this is huge the justice department is authorizing a giant tell me nation corporation to break federal privacy laws granting them immunity to do so. keep in mind if it weren't for those for your request we wouldn't even know about the extent of the pentagon story ramped up online
surveillance or perhaps the most honest in this recent revelation though you know it's a vocal about the dangers implication of such but how soon when the worst of the bill is going to be practiced entirely in secret but i guess that's the obama administration's m.o. violate our rights first hot either violations of the law second. amidst a last week's barrage of violence and trapping all eyes were on them one such story from the associated press is official twitter account one o seven pm on april twenty third twenty following the story news breaking explosions in the white house and brought obama is injured cult thousands of real and some of them in. minutes later the report was false when he. had been hacked and it quickly redaction the story but not quickly enough for the sake of checking
this out. top suddenly plummeted in just two minutes of the tweet crowd just as quickly as news to bunt this reveals just how integrated social media has become with the iconic trends so joining me now to discuss the story and more financial news is parry and bring the host of prime interest a brand new financial launch right here on our to you very soon thank you so much carrie ann thank you so what does it mean for the stocks. to attack what the heck does this point of the. what we may not realize is that the majority of trades are electronically estimated maybe about ninety five percent of all trades are done electronically through high frequency trading so we have the specialized training firms that have our goes out for new eyes to trade on and what we saw in the dow jones is now that they are monitoring social media about three weeks ago the f.c.c. ruled that public companies could put information about investments on social media
and this is the most recent development of that so it brought us down a little bit further because i mean i for people who don't really understand what algorithms are i mean when something reacts so quickly and takes a plummet and those but i mean we're talking about things are. literally automated . and that's why i've been so fast as light in during this market we saw this week it happened within less than ten minutes the dow jones crashed and it . honestly could respond that found right so what you're saying is robots are taking over the planet. no it's scary because i think what's going to happen when something does happen and the stock market does poem and that is a really interesting question guys but while we're on the subject of fan the internet i want to ask you about merck. a lot of opponents and on both sides point what is bill and. commerce right is the online sales tax and what it's acquire is companies that sell products online to collect. the.
women so if you're amazon and you sell across all fifty states it's going to be a major regulatory burden on your business and so larger businesses like amazon will probably be able to absorb those costs on the smaller online retailers might not and so tolo who is one of the proponents and opponents saying is that is to benefit and lose from this well in the marketplace fairness act because brick and mortar stores are competing against enter net stores and internet stores are getting away with collecting taxes at times so the people who are for it are more stores so there's also a eighty four million dollars lobbying force behind this from verizon and viacom so there's a lot of this going into the words he was pushing and he was right yeah sometimes it just takes a look at who's pushing the bill to really find out who stands to benefit the most some criticism that i've heard about that though is that i'm going to taxation
without reservation because it's kind of this you're pulling all your money if you shop online you don't really know where the taxes are going to i mean is that kind of an accurate assessment of a critique of the bill one thing that members are saying and they do support that. add your taxes already exist it's called the use tax on like i did apparently you're supposed to collect these taxes when you file at the end of the year and pay them to your state so what it would do is enforce the use tax personally i think the fair tax is a really interesting concepts and i think we should talk about in a later show but speaking of stuff online seems to be the new popular trend in the us decentralize on currency talk about what it is and why it's getting popular so big planes are a crypto a digital currency there they have a set amount i think it's twenty one million years in the west that there's about nineteen million already mind it's technically still a currency but the reason why i like it is because it's
a free market and. governments are central bankers and this was designed by a smaller company and a lot of we're going to see a lot of people flock to. so we have more people. there are issues with coins it may not be the fix all problems are monetary systems but it is interesting that start to see these types of currencies and technologies evolve and i think this is just the beginning and we're going to see more and more pop up just going to. some out of these top down thank you and of controlling the world right now let's talk about your new show. very stern r t what can we expect from it so prime minister is going to be an economic finance. following the market i'm not going to tell you. all day to day basis we're going to detail in the mainstream media is not picking up on or any good to the print of what's in your prime minister and i have great producers we have. underhill who we're all working
very hard to bring a great package is going to be very soon on our t.v. on the four thirty time slot right before your show very soon cool awesome thank you so much perry and boring prime interest. just wondered i'm do you know what i'm not on twitter. you can follow me there you'll find a segment on the show as well as a random thought i have throughout the day and also please help us get the six running on twitter ok. i didn't get trending on the twitter sphere but only with your help so i had to twitter and track abby martin oh it took a break from my preaching but stay tuned for my interview on the media's role in spreading a phobia next. morning
it's. never going to be like. in the wake of. and you know here racism and discrimination against one group muslims take a look. at her if she knew about this she ought to be in prison for wearing a huge job that immigration policy and you know i'm a leading immigrant into our culture isn't really working no there are slating off into their cultures you have a correct me too. what are the theology in this world murdering innocent people the answer is only radical islam allows terror murder but there are some who are very leery of all of. the muslim students and america our own little mind maybe
stuff granting them visas others have spoken of slowing down the number of get into this country checking out more clothes it's let me just say this about the access that muslims have in this country whether they're american muslims or when they're here on a student visa it is enormous the access that they have and it is virtually all radical yes i know that was almost the fox news but the sentiment of islamophobia has been echoed crowd. in a way and has been since nine eleven that's kind of rhetoric toxify is the public's perception of the fastest growing religion in the world one that's inherently peaceful unfortunately this mindset does nothing more than incite hatred and violence against population so here to talk about the culture of islam again and what we can do to combat this mindset going forward i'm joined now by arsalan iftikhar senior editor of islamic monthly and founder of the muslim guy dot com thank you so much i mean i think you have it so why is it that when white people go
on a shooting spree it's an aberration it's considered that they're mentally ill when there's almost some with a bomb that is just exclusively terrorism it's the term terrorism has been co-opted after september eleventh to really only about when muslim doods commit an act of terror you know in the last year we've seen the newtown connecticut school shooting we saw the aurora colorado movie massacre in all of those cases it was just a white kooky loner that was doing it less than a year ago also we had a white supremacist named wade michael page who walked into a sikh gurdwara temple in oak creek wisconsin and slaughtered in cold blood and he had a race war. but the term domestic terrorism was rarely used to assure you it was a brown dude who opt into a white church in wisconsin and six innocent people regardless of his political ideology he would have been referred to as a terrorist and also just there's been multiple bombings of abortion clinics by
right wing christians we don't. we don't hear people really talking about that as terrorism either it's really fascinating and i consider anyone who want to kill innocent people mentally unstable why is there no discussion about their mental stability and that the conversation is only about radical islam and international terrorism trying to link these kids off to some international terror plot well as you know in america we've always needed to have a proverbial bogeyman we've always needed in and they meet during the seventy's and eighty's in the cold war it was the russian red scare and now in the millennial age it's become the green muslim scare and so you know a lot of it is based on american perceptions of what's going on if they don't know about you know the sikh temple shooting being referred to as an act of domestic terrorism or in new to connecticut school shooting or the dark knight movie massacre in colorado are now referred to a domestic terror it shows that there is a disk. there you know a few days before does start i have brothers were suspects you know c.n.n.
and other networks reported that he called dark skinned male was arrested even though this turned out to be false the narrative that it was other guys doing it and it's not a problem that america has well yes absolutely and putting that kind of preconceived notion out there kind of it's almost kind of aids that that perception and a lot of people don't follow up and see if it was later retracted or or they don't know who these people were in the media of course so quickly size obama in this is really strange he's not a hastily to tears i mean if that's really means anything considering how meaningless the word has become in a post nine eleven world which according to dan to him not jumping within minutes of the boston bombings makes him the most an apologist or most of himself i mean what kind of damage is this extreme rhetoric from many talking heads in the media due to just the conversation that we need to be having in this country right now well you know most people are aware that we are currently or have fought two wars in predominant muslim nations and most of our foreign policy today dealing with
much of the rest world revolves around dealing with muslim nations and you saw the you know the whisper campaigns of being some sort of crypto muslim candidate you know whenever somebody says that barack obama is a. say not that there's anything wrong with except it's a it's accepted form of other ization and you know that's part of the president has never set foot inside an american mosque because the minute that he would do so during a political campaign the right wingers a point out and say look we told you so. but if you take these attacks a new account along with the nine eleven you're still more likely to slip in the shower the north of a terrorist attack in this country of course that doesn't accompany the narrative of fear driving all this stuff going on in a part of jordie of f.b.i. or i'm sorry of terrorist plots last decade what would have been concocted by the large majority i mean this is. terror. this undercurrent of islamophobia well it's important that
a lot of studies have been done that showing that in the last decade or two decades the bad over ninety percent of domestic terrorist plots have been foiled here in the united states committed by white domestic terrorists and so you know when we hear narratives about you know islamic terrorism being you know the threat of our time you know it's one of the threats there are a lot of threats out there you know we a few years ago there was a forty year old white american tea party member named joe stack lewis single engine plane into an i.r.s. building in austin texas now if it was a brown dude who had flown his plane is. in the country would have shut down every federal building in the country and we would have called it what it is an act of terrorism but because a right wing nut. did something that's not enough to terrorism and so there's a double standard in terms of the terrorism needs to be called out. paramilitary troops in this because only let alone the. and also just so many in
the fact that these wars brought as a motivating factor of course there is zero in on being radicalized abroad. and all this stuff really kind of that glaring aspect blowback hello i mean. at the end of the day you know at the end of the day deals guys were just criminal losers criminals like it's something that obviously is you know antithetical to any major religious teaching and you know even the mosque in boston the elder one went to kick him out because he started yelling at them during a friday sermon that was pretty junior so even the muslim community in boston had shunned this guy and therefore you knew radicalized by himself but of course you still hear people like bellow. that most americans should apologize on behalf of whatever these things happened how do you respond to something like this by saying you just did white america or timothy mcveigh federal building in oklahoma and. religion was an ideology actually it was clear to
self professed member of the christian identity movement and so why is it that one minority but america is collective guilt more than any other demographic group in america if we're going to ask people to apologize for the acts of a few then we should ask everyone to apologise for the acts of a few but that's ridiculous because that's a completely un-american and it is and like you said before going back to this proverbial bogeyman i mean every generation has their own and really it's necessitates these perpetual war is i mean you need this proverbial people to humanize the enemy to allow these wars to continue it really is just a cycle and unfortunately what it's companies all of this is this extreme discrimination the incitement of violence of racial profiling as you said a saudi national which is odd that they call them that anyway apprehended interrogated and then all these calls now from politicians and pundits like to block muslim student visas from coming into the country is the worst of it or is there more to come i expect more backlash to come i mean even in the days following
the boston marathon bombings you know there was a report of a palestinian muslim woman who wears the job the headscarf who was accosted by a white male who started yelling profanities at or saying a few muslims you did the boston marathon bombing a day after the boston bombings there was a man in a new york city mosque who is actually followed by an armed individual who is also yelling out and i'm muslim slurs and so sadly this is become part and parcel of what many in the american muslim community have faced since nine eleven and you know we're going to probably continue to face it for the foreseeable future what can we do i mean we're becoming more of a melting pot as one of the largest growing religions i mean we're what we did and this guilt by association and really how damaging is this the cultural fabric of our nation we have. it's very important and we need passions we need to preserve the administration we need brave members of congress in the senate to come out and challenge you know all the right wing talking points that are coming out until we do so you know people like myself are going to have to come out in the media and
try to humanize muslims and let the people know that just because somebody commits an act of terror not all brown people are guilty thank you so much arsalan iftikhar senior editor for the islamic monthly and founder of the muslim guy dot com i think you and i thinking. despite the tragic events of the boston bombings it's important to realize how many really horrific events occur around the world every day. the recent round of drone strikes in yemen where the u.s. claimed to be targeting al-qaeda leaders like hamid rob me the latest drone strike in a country is a crucial element for the testimony of the many native for ria who saw me spoke before the first senate judiciary committee is hearing held on drones. began his testimony by stating that all radhasoami the alleged target for that strike was so well known among local officials that the yemeni government could have captured him easily if the u.s. had just asked them to do so but it seems that common sense is lacking so it's on surprising that the u.s. stuck with their usual instead well he explained how truly devastating those two
drone strikes were. when they think of america they think of the. the drones that hold that over their heads but the fired missiles and you thought what the violent jonathon's had to be via city filled to achieve one. accomplished and the drone bombing that horizon is people on a daily basis as he just went on to explain this bombing was anything but an isolated incident in fact these sporadic attacks are now expected by people in yemen and elsewhere who live under a constant state of fear not to mention that drones ninety percent failure rate in their targets sadly though it seems that testimony fell on deaf ears and no one from the obama administration attended the hearing and it's not the first time either it's back on a house panel conducted a similar hearing back in february not a single member of obama's cabinet was present but the problem doesn't just lie with the white house's lack of acknowledgment it's also congress mockery they've
made of the ongoing warfare in a rolling stone just moments after all mostly gave that vivid testimony quote members of the committee were cracking jokes about being sentenced to death for going over ones a lot of time yep no wonder there is no action on a government level when it comes to. of this field practice obama's perfectly comfortable being crowned the drone cade the defense industry making a killing and congress they're laughing all the way to the bank.
while the ship makes two pewters this day so super is that the memory for that russian research is have got a few ideas that could make hundreds of computing a reality what about the process or get a radical new architecture the promise is unparalleled power the design of the stars is that under color of what jewelry because the latest cooling systems ensure neither you nor book interest rates would not want you. on what we've done.
