ukraine's crimea rising against the self-appointed kiev government rejecting the coup and gearing up to push reinforced by former elite police. what's more and he's threatening russia with nuclear leverage even if some of the countries revolutionaries bloody reprisals against the very thorough they helped to get. pressure insists its actions in crimea fully comply with longstanding agreements with ukraine while the new government in kiev whips up military hysteria. and syria rebel convoy attacks attempt to wreck the chemical disarmament operation. to mine the government's credibility with the international community.
4:01 am
thank you for joining us here on r.t. international. live in moscow with this i was told world headlines crimea remains defiant the autonomous region in southern ukraine says it will stand its ground against the self-imposed government in kiev. is in the area watching developments joining us now live here on the program you go to right now what a regional of thora he's telling you. the local authorities are saying that they're very alarmed by the right wing rhetoric coming out of they have temporarily. put control over the you will call authorities police naval and military forces they've also asked russia to provide protection here in the crimea in moscow said that it will pay attention to these requests in the meantime so. called
4:02 am
self-defense squads have been patrolling the key facilities here in the autonomous republic to air force the building of the local calment and a t.v. station and russia also says that it's ready to provide citizenship to members of the former. swat teams which have been fighting the rioters in kiev during the violence last week and for more this here is a report by my colleague buddy if. this is the golden eagles swan song the bear could ukraine's elite police force after weeks of deadly clashes in the capital kiev on the orders of the ministry of internal affairs to protect government buildings from rioters the barricades are no more. ukraine's new authorities were quick to disband the thousand strong and to right unit former officers were made to publicly kneel in western ukraine and beg for forgiveness while locals shouted shane pelting them with objects.
4:03 am
from it's hard for us there are many among us who sacrificed their health and lives to protect citizens after twenty two years of service they just threw a sound like garbage it's painful. victor denise of spend two decades in the crane in police he says the barricades in kiev were simply unprepared to face armed protesters while trying to carry out their duty on friday during his press briefing in russia president called which did apologize for that if i believe well it could be an armed big offices have had more out of cocktails thrown out the been shortened by live ammunition and killed i apologize to these courageous people who have stood up and suffered any new magoo. well i can say that i don't accept these apologies at the end of the day we didn't
4:04 am
fight fianna coverture and it was not him personally we protected we tried to protect public order to allow the state to function. i show that to one of numerous the day's pasted on the t.v. showing their backers in action to keep silent while watching. on these videos you can see what these people who have booklets of beating were doing before they were arrested what was going on there was a real war and only experienced people with special training could tolerate that and the violence they witnessed led to more violence. the dinner had a very good veteran association who believes that the warring sides withdraw from equal work assuming the burkas who faced their world financed and a well trained force their recognitions was excellent they knew about our tactics and strategies they were traitors that we were naked and blind. it. was their kids' reputation now fatally undermined by the interim government in kiev
4:05 am
that remains at least one place in ukraine where they still respected ukraine's south in the town of most region of crimea recognized neither kids knew masters nor their laws and they refused to disarm the bankers in fact they reinforced them in stand this is that has porters of ukraine's very crude here in crimea so for opel as you can see the building is surrounded by barricades and patrolled around the core so-called people's guards are here day and night they say they are worried about attacks this is the upside down reality of ukraine today those whose mission just until recently was to secure a peace and prosperity of the country's population are today in need of protection themselves people here have different backgrounds they're from different ethnic groups but they share one common goal this is where protection berkut from the army of folks who came to power as the result of the current coup they are controlling
4:06 am
the puppet government but fishing decrease at gunpoint including disarming and sermon birchard where protecting their families burped self-assertion are also our protectors against people who are committing armed terror in other areas of ukraine . those who gathered here say they don't want to filings but if it comes here they would be ready to resist even if they have to pay with their own life's rich nationality from crimea. and at the same time people in eastern ukraine are readying for. tests against neo nazis on the my down movement they're planning peaceful rallies using social networks as you can see the demonstrations are planned in a number of cities across the east and the south of the country in the heart of cough activists say they want everybody to see the real situation in ukraine and to reject what they call the nationalist dictatorship rising in the country and then to don't yet so wait to see if its citizens will move against occupation and
4:07 am
intervention until the form opposition leaders that they are not welcome. now mean or some of those who helped the current kiev government into power are already vowing to turn against the new or thirty's have a listen to this. it was. the right sectors for it is a very deep i will destroy anyone who comes here i will hang the interior minister of like a dog that's a radical militant leader alexander and you see him there reacting to the interior minister's pledge to investigate his recent actions here on thursday there you can see him there he broke into a regional prosecutor's office beating him bullying the prosecutor's assistant and then threatening him with a gun the activist from the right secular group has a long history of radicalism is known for his anti-semitic and neo nazi views as well as for fighting against russian troops in the chechen campaign in the one nine hundred ninety s. . but now it's not only moves which go that's making headlines but his compatriots
4:08 am
as well representatives of the new ukrainian government are already threatening to go nuclear if they don't get their way a deputy from this football at a party warns that kiev could go back on its own constitution and restock its nuclear arsenals within six months sees an associate reports. double standards going to war washington suffer sleepless nights and paranoia when it comes to the nuclear capabilities of countries like iran iran's nuclear program iran's nuclear program iran's nuclear program but the us turns a blind eye when it comes to provoke it if statements coming out of key have one member of the ukrainian parliament's ultra nationalists hobbled their party warns that a fresh a doesn't tread carefully it will be dealing with a nuclear power that's the rhetoric despite ukraine signing up to the international nuclear nonproliferation treaty of one thousand nine hundred four there is a double standard when it comes to the way that the united states deals with supposedly nuclear threat from iran which let's not forget there is absolutely no
4:09 am
evidence whatsoever that iran intends to develop nuclear weapons or for aggressive military purposes unlike iraq on the warning from the ukrainian lawmaker includes an actual deadline of just a few months this in a conflict. in country where even the most pessimistic predictions ended up becoming a reality but none of that seems to disturb the u.s. but money that we can use to be for the hungry in the united states and in europe that money is going to nazis in ukraine with nuclear ambitions who are looking to destabilize the region and whose sole goal is the destruction of russia is yet another example of hypocrisy flying high from the country that touts itself as the world's leading democracy and. new york. well we've heard the threat but is it really feasible we've been putting together the facts about ukraine's nuclear capabilities and here is what we found let's bring it up for you here on r.t. international ukraine is a bit of
4:10 am
a nuclear addict it draws almost half of his energy from atomic power it's also home to europe's largest nuclear power plant the atomic agency of ukraine is very closely tied with out of russia in fact all of the reactors are of russian design so here's a checklist of what it takes to build a nuclear bomb manpower know how check your greenhouse the facilities and the scientists in the field as for fuel ukraine buys low enriched uranium from russia it is not weapons grade if you want to waste your time enriching you can use a reactor a waste to make a bomb though in order to do that ukraine would not only be breaking its own international commitments but its very own constitution which forbids nuclear weapons as for delivery vehicles a nuclear payload can be put on a simple artillery shell or a rocket right but the question is can all be done in three to six months while the also we've arrived is yes a so-called dirty bomb could be put together in that timeframe but political and
4:11 am
economic analyst martensite from the globalist news website he told us stuff the threat is most likely just talk. these threats are probably extreme and irresponsible bluff but it's very alarming to hear them being made in the first place the new government which is now emerged didn't keep. other figures like the opposition state with the least to act in their responsible manner to earn the deserved respect and trust and cooperation of the international community that comment is disastrously card to productive and should be seen as search. russia's current actions in crimea within the scope of agreements with ukraine on the presence of the black sea fleet there that assertions from moscow's permanent un envoy the new or thora days in kiev are getting exercised over troop movements and that concern has been echoed by the us president barack obama didn't
4:12 am
exactly specify what it is that he's worried about nature can reports. president obama says the u.s. is now quote deeply concerned by reports of military movements taken by the russian federation inside of ukraine then president obama goes on a warns against quote any military intervention in ukraine this leaves us with a lot of questions what movements does the president mean russia's black sea fleet has been based in ukraine in crimea for many years and russia's military does make movements there all the time under existing agreements between russia and ukraine according to moscow those movements do not extend beyond those agreements we heard from the russian ambassador to the u. when we have an agreement with ukraine on the presence of the russian. black sea fleet with a base in the sebastopol we are acting within the framework of that agreement so you have moscow saying that it will stick to its obligations under existing agreements but president obama was apparently echoing the statements from interim
4:13 am
authorities in kiev rather than reacting to what moscow said or done the interim leader in kiev spoke shortly before president obama and accused russia of a military invasion and the white house for the fear of the tensions saying president obama may reconsider his trip to the g eight summit in russia if moscow intervenes militarily again there are no statements from moscow that would back up those warnings and and threats we even heard from the u.s. state department earlier that it cannot say that russia has broken any of its commitments and the bush of mollett shoes ukrainian affairs analyst told us the white house perhaps should think twice before relying on hearsay. what i'm thinking is happening with the white house is that they're using this is a pretext to cover up their own involvement i think it's infinitely easier to clip to now accuse russians of intervening in ukraine to cover up the fact that the current crisis is a product of american intervention to begin with i haven't heard any reports of
4:14 am
russian troop movements i know that there are several russian formations stationed in the bases in the crimea as per the international contract signed with the ukrainian government years ago and that there were reports of local militia. to use a patient of government in kiev so and then of course there are conflicting reports from u.s. sources that the government sources are saying there's no true route russian movement and then you have certain media basing these reports on certain activists again who have no credibility and are frequently anonymous and says it's it is believed or it is reported who is it who is reporting it who is believing here that these are russian troops until we know what's it what exactly is going on i think it's irresponsible to start accusing russians of a military intervention. you know while the political crisis rages on the economy continues to crumble ukraine now owes russia one point five billion dollars in late payments for gas and is in danger of losing its discount robert oulds from the
4:15 am
bruges group political thing tanky says there's little chance that even the western powers the support of the uprising will be able to help ukraine. the problems of the largely created in ukraine by western european union and united states involvement a very seriously stabilized ukraine's economy. investment. government that is now which used to junk status people will not be wanting to invest in ukraine getting its economy moving again there's been serious political turmoil and that he's never a good situation for encouraging investment ukraine has some very serious challenges ahead the collapse in the value of its carbon c will lead to high inflation things are not looking good to talk. well if you can do stay with us here on our international more world news coming your way today including why dirty diesels could get britain slapped with a massive fine of politicians though is just hot air one of them tells us what he
4:16 am
thinks brussels is really up to a stop to the break. is the easiest place to billionaires dictators to modern money because it's the only country in the world you can have a. lot of americans create. and then those. corporations in america money in america generally make billions of dollars in revenues they pay less than twenty million dollars in taxes because of massive fraud because america is the easiest place to.
4:17 am
do the. technology innovation all the developments around russia. the future. good lumber. to build. anything mission to teach creation and. this is why you should care only. breaking news for you. we're now getting information at this moment that unidentified men from kiev have attacked the crimean interior ministry. join us live with the very latest go to up to date please what do you know. we're
4:18 am
getting reports from moscow that over the night armed men sent from kiev tried to capture the local interior ministry here in the crimea and apparently there are several people who have been injured in this incident moscow statuses quite concerned about the situation here in the town of this republic of crimea and thinks it's highly irresponsible of the new authorities in kiev to aggravate the situation if you like that in the meantime the local authorities in the crimea have set a new date for a referendum aimed to. provide more autonomy from kiev off already the autonomous republic that's been set for march and also the local prime minister has put all the security forces including police army navy and border guards temporarily under his control in the meantime so-called self-defense squads have been patrolling the key facilities in the crimea like two airports the building of the local parliament
4:19 am
and a t.v. station and russia has also announced it's ready to grant citizenship to members of the or the former members of the berkeley swat teams which have been dissolved and they've been fighting writers during the violence in kiev for more in their cities a report by my colleague monday of emotionally. we're going to get to that report a bit later take it appears going off there with the latest on this breaking news we'll get to the report in just a few minutes thanks for coming on so quickly yes or just a quick reminder of that it was our breaking news here in our international information that identified demand sent from kiev attack the crimean crimean interior ministry details still to come for now syria has repelled two attempted attacks on its chemical weapons convoys and the arsenal is as exposed as ever during the operation to destroy the toxic arms the militants exploiting that vulnerability to do rail the process fall asleep now reporting on how the civil war is indeed hampering the disarmament. for the first time in history
4:20 am
a country tasked with destroying its chemical arsenal while the war the problem on chemical weapons is that the syrian regime has dragged and is not moving forward in the way that the security council and the o.p.c. laid out that it should move forward it's true that syria is struggling to fulfill its promises and commitments but syria denies in the very strongest terms it is deliberately slowing things down. look at the history of syria since the formation of the united nations of which syria is an establishing member who show that syria has always been committed to its violence is never given a promise without fulfilling it when we talk about transferring these weapons we talk about hundreds of kilometers the need to be passed in safe conditions the terrorists threaten they would try to target the convoys. damascus says its efforts to destroy its stockpiles have been slowed down by radicals sabotaging its effort
4:21 am
they've attacked weapons carriers and made transporting the chemicals even more difficult and dangerous syrian soldiers have been killed guarding these chemical weapons these deadlines were set only for a matter of weeks for syrian state is for the u.s. to damascus has repeatedly said it will abide by its commitments but the opposition has yet to make the same claim what's more even the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons is managing the removal process says the given deadlines are soft deadlines and the west should not be too concerned about them being missed at this stage and. when you put a schedule your put it theoretically on the ground will just pick and security conditions may alter and many obstacles mean there are. a fourth consignment containing mustard gas left syria a few days ago delays are not insurmountable delays have a reason there's a rationale there's a context syria was supposed to complete its chemical weapons were moved by march but damascus is asking for an extension until mid may to complete
4:22 am
a job that it. one knew it wasn't going to be easy to see. why with us live right now here in austin international michael luan from the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons that's a take this further regarding syria and its chemical to solomon good to see today michael do you think it's realistic to syria to fully disarm its chemical weapons given that given the state of the deadline timeline and the civil war that continues. well first let me just comment very quickly on. the remarks that your correspondent made about the soft deadline there's nothing soft about the deadline for destroying syria's chemical weapons stockpile that deadline remains the thirtieth of june of this year and while we're seeing encouraging new movements of chemicals out of the country where they can be destroyed safely and securely there's still a lot of work to be done and in fact our people are working right now as we speak with syrian authorities on this new revised plan that they have submitted to the
4:23 am
o.p.c. to you to try to shorten the time lines to the extent where it remains possible to achieve the thirty thirty june deadline so you're saying ok the june thirtieth deadline is not a soft deadline but perhaps you know some are saying it might be preferable to slow down the pace a little bit considering the state of the civil war there is it possible do you think michael that the chemical weapons could ultimately end up in the hands of jihadists if this is not done correctly. that's precisely the reason why the o.p.c. wus so concerned to get these chemicals out of syria as quickly as possible precisely to obviate the possibility of them falling into the wrong hands we were getting excellent cooperation from the syrian authorities through the first part of this mission but in fact we've seen a significant slowdown in activities the last couple months and that's what needs to be reversed at this point in time. the. other states parties of the o.p.c.
4:24 am
w precisely particular the russian federation the united states norway denmark the united kingdom others have all pitched in with a range of support and assistance to enable the syrian government to pack up and transport the remaining chemicals from the these sites around damascus and homes down to latakia where they can be boarded on the ships and taken out of the country but michael michael i'm so i'm so sorry michael jump in i'm running solo on time here but you know you're saying that you're getting cooperation from the assad government but you are saying there is a slowdown in the disarmament of chemical weapons i suppose some might ask surely the rebels also have a responsibility to help make sure the chemical arsenal is put beyond use why is there only pressure on assad at this point it's a two way street surely. one not exactly it's the state of syria which has the obligation under the chemical weapons convention to give up its chemical arsenal
4:25 am
and to see that it's destroyed under the verification of the o.p.c. having said that our colleagues in the united nations in the syria are constantly in touch with this little green range of rebel groups that are operating on the ground to try to negotiate and help negotiate south safe michael as you say as as you say there are many different groups involved certainly regional but also international groups who are trying to get a safe passage for the delivery and i suppose the expulsion of the chemical weapons but michael lohan from the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons i wish we had more time we really done it but thank you very much for joining us here on c international today thank you you thank. why for now on the program britain is a lagging behind in cleaning up its polluted air quality and i could see it having to cough up an e.u. fine of hundreds of millions of pounds though some m.p.'s in westminster say it's a smokescreen covering up some underhand political game play laura smith explains.
4:26 am
another breach of an e.u. imposed diktats and not the by this time it's about pollution the u.k. has failed to meet its e.u. target to reduce as he said so busy roads it made to safety have higher than agreed levels of nitrogen dioxide the target shouldn't be that three years ago and now the government has two months to present a plan and the cost of notes doing math a staggering three hundred million pounds some say it's no secret about the rules anymore because britain the way in first of all stopping increases to the e.u. budget then leading the charge to reduce the budget first time is that the e.u. bureaucrats are really targeting britain and no doubt some other countries to try and make up the revenue by imposing fines for even the slightest technical preach that's if accurate is reprehensible and i'm acceptable and just once again shows
4:27 am
that this is an organization that is out of touch with the realities my constituents and of his face the e.u. has singled out britain for persistently breaching that quality directive regulations but it's not the only reason the u.k.'s been flat on the wrist by the e.u. by the end of last year there were no fewer than forty seven north seats outstanding where the u.k.'s accused of breaking european law they cut a massive range of things from import duties on fresh garlic from china to tractor emissions to the cleanliness of beaches to toy safety all of those north sea could end in quick pulling by from the european union up next the kaiser report.
4:28 am
minnesota vikings football player jared allen unlike many pro athlete stereotypes is actually doing something for society with this n.f.l. fame and fortune he is providing homes for turning wounded u.s. veterans good job mr allen generally for some reason wealthy people don't do much to help other people besides giving money to charity to get some sort of tax break kickback the thing they don't realize that helping other people out is actually in the best interest of rich guys too if they would ever just stop to think about it a little more so mega wealthy that you could live in total isolation you're going to have to deal with the rest of the people in your country and the better off that average guy is the less likely he's going to need to steal from you to get by ellen's work is fantastic because it gets veterans out of a desperate situation returning home wounded trying to struggle to find work in a bad economy and treat their wounds in a massively over expensive medical system here ellis point is a drop in the bucket for the over twenty million american servicemen who have come back home but it shows that a wounded veteran with a place to live as
4:29 am
a much better chance at a good life and the fewer vets there are living under a bridge the better society will be but that's just my opinion. this is a joke. and if. we can't get over it seems to be running out of steam as well as. we sit by this and it's a crisis like this yes we america obama is wise and more such light is futuristic. like going to be precise. welcome to the kaiser report imax kaiser you know the c.e.o.
4:30 am
of mt gox try to concern troll his way into a bailout just like hank paulson trolling congress in two thousand and eight marker pallas told other bit coy firms that he was really very concerned that if they didn't bail him out to the tune of two hundred thousand bitcoin that bitcoin would collapse of course when treasury secretary x. goldman sachs and paulson did the same congress and shrinking voters gave him what he wanted for markets had tumbled by nearly one thousand points and when. yes were big babies stop it they cried so mark now that you have bankrupted the magic gathering online exchange and allegedly disappeared with your customers money in the style of john corazon of m.f. global and for me and now the us federal prosecutors have suppose you. it's time to get a job on wall street that's where too big to fail crybabies operate big point is no
4:31 am
place for babies stacey yes maxwell allegedly all of this is allegedly market parlous at mt gox has lost or misplaced or stolen so the notion of forty four thousand bitcoin and again we're prerecording this a bit so we don't know if he has jumped from some tall building in tokyo yet but at the time of the recording he has not yet jumped now that seven hundred forty four thousand because it is about six percent of all between out there but did you know that three percent of chinese g.d.p. per year is also stolen taken out of the country and brought to australia the k canada and america corrupt chinese officials fully overseas some bound for australia so apparently there is an intensifying crackdown on corruption in china so they're all fleeing and the chinese academy of social sciences a prestigious government controlled think tank urged stricter monitoring of what it
4:32 am
termed naked officials those who spouses or children have migrated overseas and were therefore more likely potential recipients of illicit from from within china the phenomenon of the flight of officials is likely to escalate particularly under the current anti-graft we've been a research of the academy and co-author of the report corrupt qadri is are running out of places to live in this country right. china's g.d.p. is being extracted by these corrupt officials fleeing what percentage of the us g.d.p. is tied to these too big to fail is on wall street that are being bailed out and destructing their economy i think it's something like twenty two percent so america six percent of the bitcoin economy being in question due to the machinations of mark pelosi over there in tokyo it's part and parcel of what you see and mark. the point being though that he's established himself as a totally corrupt guy therefore he should be working on wall street not in the big
4:33 am
space because bitcoin is free market capitalism it's not true only capitalism is too big to fail capitalism he's not he tried to emulate hank paulson by extorting a bail out fee from other bitcoin firms so he's clearly on the wrong side of the crypto divide you should be in fear world not in crypto world well at one point that seven hundred forty four thousand big queens was worth close to a billion dollars right now it's worth like four hundred million dollars but you know there's a place where if you can steal a loot that much from any economy there's a place for you as they point out here for these chinese officials past experience shows that the most popular destinations for corrupt officials are the us canada and australia said who's in doubt and an economics professor at the beijing institute of technology australia has already become a major resupplying country of chinese corrupt officials now a strangely is changing their visa system because they were so many chinese there
4:34 am
were literally tens of thousands of them on this list on this visa application list for one of the top of these applications their visa categories and instead because there were so many they reckoned they could charge them like two and a half million australian dollars instead of the i don't know the tens of thousands they were charging previously well this is inflation people say there's no inflation but this isn't a place of. just central banks or printing lots of money and it's going into chinese visa applicants whose price for coming into the u.k. is going from one million to two million soon to be five million pounds why do they want to come here they want to come here to launder the money they're stealing from china when they arrive here they use all the laundered money given to them through the central banking system to jack up real estate prices in london and everyone else who's actually working for a living like firemen policemen school teachers doctors they have to move out of london to make room for the kleptocrats. and that's where the inflation is creating a problem in the economy well that's where you have housing bubbles the countries
4:35 am
they mention australia canada think of the vancouver house prices again a lot of those are also bought by chinese they could be fleeing now they said you know that it was the boston consulting group who said that three percent of annual g.d.p. every year taken from the country smuggled out by these corrupt officials the naked officials now the actual numbers are quite amazing they say a previous report from the cast and said more than eighteen thousand officials had fled the country between one thousand nine hundred five and two thousand and eight smuggling out assets totaling eight hundred billion yuan which is one hundred forty five billion dollars in one week alone last year the state run economic observer newspaper reported that seven hundred fourteen government officials fled overseas and did not return again this is inflationary the people who are being destroyed by this inflation are dying and the government is pointing to the people dying on the street and saying you see that's deflation so we need to keep interest rates low
4:36 am
they don't bother looking at the fact that on the top and to do mass migration of billionaires it's causing incredible inflation that's bankrupting and destroying everyone else who's not in the kleptocrats class but the bankers only look at the people who are developed i'm of the kleptocracy and say you see there is deflation let's keep interest rates low they've put the blinders on and they don't look anywhere else in the economy were hyperinflation of visa's going from one million pounds to three million pounds in twenty four months that doesn't seem to factor into their calculations why they should raise interest rates not make visa applicants higher because all you're doing is you're feeding the kleptocracy and you're continuing to create economic victims now markopolos did issue a statement claiming he was still in tokyo so we don't know if he's actually fled to australia canada. or the us under one of these visa programs with all his looted
4:37 am
big coin but the actual chinese themselves who are victims of these corrupt officials well mt gox exchange shutdown sparks chinese bitcoin gold rush chinese investors rush to buy bitcoin we were watching on fi out leake dot com actually you can see prove who removed all the bitcoin going straight into china well since tuesday more than thirty thousand bitcoins have changed hands in china that's four times the usual trade volume in comparison with just three hundred exchange in the united states market post is the john chorus sign of the bitcoin world he made a terrible bet bitcoin had he been able to hold this position it would have been very profitable for him but like john karzai and his position and euro bonds the timing was bad he ended up bankrupting m.f. global he did eventually get a stay of execution from goldman sachs and his friends in washington because they can print all the money they want to cover all the crimes that are being committed it cannot be printed to cover up the crimes so like real market free market
4:38 am
capitalism disguise going to have to actually face the music well exactly everybody saying well there should be regulation but now you compared to junk or sign just like markopolos they actually made a really excellent wicked cool bets they made sure bets but they both dipped into client funds they both dipped into client funds to cover their losses now despite all of the regulation despite everything that happened post enron where c.e.o.'s are supposed to know what's going on with their books he pleaded ignorance he said i'm just stupid i didn't know that this was going on and he got out of jail free well people are saying markopolos should have known he apparently never audited his books once they say in the last three years so he's alleging he's as stupid as john corazon well in a free market capitalist economy something called the price signal john course on the price signal of the bond market. was manipulated by his folks and friends in the various bankers around the world to make it look like there wasn't this massive
4:39 am
fraud going on in the case of free market capitalism of bitcoin the pricing all big coin dropping fifty percent from a high tells us that there is in fact something going on that needs to be looked at and now it's being looked at and the deadwood is being cleaned out of the big coin economy you know people who say that bitcoin is not regulated are that's false the big point is the most regulated currency in the world it's called the big protocol that's the regulation it does intermediates and it gets written it gets rid of the need for the c.f.o. or the serious fraud office or the f.c.c. or anyone else fin rennes fin sent you don't need them because it's self regulating in the truest sense of the world the words like the question equals mc squared there's no there's nothing you can do to perfect that is what it is it was discovered and that's what it is that you don't need a regulator to come and say we need to regulate equals mc squared similarly with
4:40 am
a bit coin protocol there's nothing any regulator can do to add or subtract from the fact of the protocol what it is that's what it is so we're talking about china and the corruption there were forty one new billionaires created last year they're only second to the united states where there were seventy two billion new billionaires created so i want to talk about corruption in the united states because everybody us is the global police force right well political connections and turbulent times and a seminal two thousand and one paper ray fiske been mapped out the connections of various indonesian companies to then president suharto and showed that the market value of those companies varied relative to the value of otherwise similar companies as rumors spread about suharto's health so they're like ha ha that's a banana republic they're corrupt well they've just done a study looking at the united states in particular those bankers in particularly connected very strongly to tim guy. and what they found over the ten trading days following the announcement of tim geithner as treasury secretary financial firms
4:41 am
with a connection to gider experience a cumulative abnormal return of about twelve percent relative to other financial sector firms this reversed when his nomination ran into trouble due to unexpected tax issues so the same corruption clearly is being priced in the price signals saying that it is a corrupt nation the us is the easiest place for billionaires and dictators to launder money why because it's the only country in the world they can have anonymous corporations a lot of americans create entities overseas and then those entities create anonymous corporations in america so if they launder their money in america general electric they made billions of dollars in revenues they paid less than twenty million dollars in taxes last year because of massive fraud because america is the easiest place to commit massive fraud and the same thing with pretty much the entire s. and p. five hundred but anyway we're out of time love to pick this up next time thanks so much ok stay right there much more coming your way.
4:42 am
in two thousand and one of the first things released by wiki leaks was a secret video recording that actually looked like a video showing to america actually political just opening for a dozen people in iraq this is going to institute a society images of our becoming all this is the sense of isolation and lack of empathy. we try and experience to. disassociate our. in body and action. i was saying from certain kinds of horror. i absolutely am frightened of the potential of games desensitize people we know they can because the military uses games. the war is not so bloody
4:43 am
but it is killing and killing exacts a penalty of the killer. people for her orders defined by the popular media the doctor. we'll call on the roadside to car skidded at breakneck speed and fell into a ditch and i was thrown out of the car she was like a broken dog it wasn't a single hold piece left i thought if i lived and had a chance to start my life from scratch that i would start making goals to help children it. could go on right after he was born the baby was all in casts. his legs are getting bigger and the ortho sister get too small so we have to order
4:44 am
new once said lorna has raised money for us she helps us to get a leg braces five years after my potentially fatal injuries in a car crash i gave birth to my little miss a i think she's my reward for helping all those children who is selling the dogs to buy life for the children. welcome back to the kaiser report imax keyser time now to turn to charles hoskins said he's a cryptographer and one of the guys behind a new crypto phenomenon theory i'm charles blow because a report and it's a pleasure to be on now i said something the first of all i'm going to comment on it because a lot of people talk about the terms of regulation and i said the thing about big oil is it's to a degree self-regulated the algorithm the protocol is the regulations my example
4:45 am
was equals mc squared i mean that's what it is i mean a regulator can come in and say well maybe that is what it means they kept no effect on it it is what it is the bitcoin protocol self-regulating it's the protocol doesn't matter what any regulator says is that is not a fair statement well yes yes no so it's a first date when you stay in crypto and so as long as you're within the big quake watch in the digital spectrum that's fine the minute you want to touch the fee world you want to touch the actual currency world then that's actually where they have a say so the points of regulation where we're seeing it strongly happening are at the exchanges right this is always been kind of the membrane to separate the two worlds and this is where they've got to focus in conceivably a crypt. eventually have its own ecosystem where never touches i would imagine at some point well as long as you have to pay your taxes and fees there's always going to be a need for that money supply but yeah that's correct more and more commerce can be done in the digital spectrum and it's already being the case in places like africa for example kenya where they transact with and pay so they transact with other
4:46 am
digital currencies and so we'll probably see more were rule of law in currencies are quite stable much as some would like their seceding from the world i want to i want to move onto a theory because this is what we're we were here to talk about so it's theory i'm you know we broke big coin on this we were first to talk about it really in the world we talk about like coin we were the first to talk about light going now i want to be the very first to talk about the theory and because this is really huge a new chapter in the whole story so give a little. all brief on it if you could share it with theorem is really just a continuation of the experiment of crypto currency and so if we go back to the history of coin there was two things that they were testing they were testing and watching so this idea of a decentralized database that everybody has a copy of and the second thing was a transaction system with these tokens that you could set around so effectively became email for money that's great but then people said well we want all these other features we want prediction markets we want gambling we want wall street we want companies to live in a block chain we want wall and there is this endless amount of features that people could invent so we did a theorem is it's really a project of frustration we took
4:47 am
a step back and said no features let's have a feature list or incomplete block chain and let's go ahead and build kind of like the android of the cryptocurrency space to sit on top of it and let's make everything one click installation your wallet one click open transactions one click ripple one click just go down the list so that in a nutshell it's basically a theory and it's a feature list thing where you can build your own features you can build your own applications and it kind of unifies the entire cryptocurrency space and to one bucket so you've got the block chain which is kind of the genius bit calling exactly and you've got it's used as a payment system which is very fantastic it's an amazing as you point out every single transaction carries with it every transaction that's ever happened up until that point right so you've got complete transparency so theory i'm says is that this block chain can be used and another one way and a more abstracted way can be used basically for anything and i don't as a designer want to figure that out rather what i want to do is give that to you i want to give that to everybody else in the ecosystem and say you know have this
4:48 am
beautiful foundation to build whatever you want to build on top of it ok let me here's the thames river behind us it's flowing through the city of london. there are now could be the block chain in other words you know this is the base of the crypto bitcoin universe. all along the towns are different ways people are accessing the thames there's a war if there's a boat there are buildings there's actors commerce being done so it's very. kind of plugging into the flow that is the phenomenon that is big going and allowing folks to bill all kinds of things that are the word that came up when talking about it there are fish and sea so in one of the ideas that i had this we were talking earlier all of the financial contracts in the world can be broken down into sixty contracts of futures options brokerage right so those sixty contracts just talk a little about that how that would work with the theory in terms of willie brown
4:49 am
it's he's done some great work so if people go to a project artist or woolies working with mit and actually thirty contracts he took a look at everything every financial relationship if they're really like molecules in a sense and you can actually break them down to more fundamental elements these stated cash flows basically and so he looked at this and said wow this is really interesting can we actually try to replicate all of wall street from some basic elements and that's what project actis is doing so what we're trying to do with willie and trying to do with others is actually take those import those and actually run those on the theory and the goal is to actually take wall street don't want change this time it's transparent it's fair it's not too big to fail so here we have become what is currency rush is giving central bankers and bankers the jitters making them quite nervous rightfully so right here yeah on the theory i'm away to take my correct my correction three central contracts that compass the universe of financialization and you're giving anyone anywhere the ability to simply plug into using if they're on the block chain and take companies public
4:50 am
create futures contract prediction markets all for virtually no cost exactly so already everyone in that industry wall street city of london is that you know a word often heard in the tech space intermediated right so they get they get kind of blown out of the sense they're new tools and you know it depends on the existing incumbents to decide how they want. to use these tools but the point is that the tools we have today work for two billion people and they work somewhat well but they don't work for the whole world and so the goal is how do we build a tool set that's going to work for seven billion people and how do we build a tool set that's going to work fair for seven billion people so the beautiful thing about it is it became the money of the internet it's a fair money no matter where you're at it works the same and the goal of the theorem is kind of to become the internet of money it's a whole bunch of different things from contracts between people to contracts between property so we have smart property to even organizations that could live on a block chain and you could build consensus you can build reputation systems you
4:51 am
could do gambling you could do it whatever you want to do our job is to build the foundation the world's job is to find what the applications are ok no one article suggest that it's theory him replace or make obsolete bitcoin now we actually view big quoting to be kind of like gold and a theorem to be more like oil in terms of the economics and how we've designed the system so because it makes a really good store value if you put your money into it no matter when you put it in over the long term you've made a lot of money and our hope is that's going to continue especially because of the deflationary economic model a theorem is more like a gigantic computational engine where people build things on top and they use the computational engine to do things in a trust this way and the fuel that runs an engine is ether the base unit of value in our ecosystem so they have different use cases and i think they actually can live in harmony and that's actually why roger verse in the recent video quinta theorem are great things to work together ok so they're complementary exactly ok now you're a composite of or so before because when there was something called cryptography
4:52 am
and toshi nakamoto in the big coin phenomenon as you know cryptography the way it works it can be turned into a currency. because the. computing power necessary to solve computational problems for tav cryptography. is setting up a situation where. harnessing and that work of folks together to do that in other words my question is. what was the light bulb moment i think this will be interesting there's cryptography it existed before bitcoin what was the toe she's inside what was that lightbulb moment what exactly the transition from cryptography to a currency model if that's a legitimate question that's fine ok how would you describe that there's really two cryptographic primitives that are used and because one is the primitive use for consensus so there's this idea of the block chain where i put things into the block chain and they don't come out and it's trusted and secure across all parties so you
4:53 am
need to hashing algorithm to do that you shot to fifty six mexico and used to show three which is better so there's better well how so great because it's it's a new cryptographic primitive uses a sponge construction there's all this magic behind it so i like show three more than fifty six but there's the debate and there's no debate max guy is better but before we jump ahead i want to get back into the inside of the the cryptography it's uses for a secure online transaction so there's two things right there so the first is to make sure that the database is secure so the ledger itself is secured by a mining process and that mining process relies on a hash algorithm the second thing is how do you spend your money who gives you the right to do that so it's called public key cryptography in the particular case of it because it used to say look the current digital signing algorithm and there is there's two parts a public address that everybody in the world can know and that's fine and then there's the private key that only the person who has the right to spend the money
4:54 am
has so these two things put together actually allow you to create a completely decentralized and trust list would it be correct to say that the problem bit coin solves is double spending yes it's old still spend ok because before then i could send somebody electronic token but i could conceivably do that sent out ten to ten people the same time right because that's the problem you need a central authority to maintain the database to a prohibits spending but with the hashing algorithm you actually have a digital consensus in a decentralized way to prevent you from. count rights instead to verify some people scarcity in a sense which is the first thing time that's ever been done. talk a little bit more about that a digital scarcity yeah so effectively once you have a database that secured by consensus nobody in the ecosystem nobody in the world can tamper with that unless they gain an overwhelming amount of power in the network so effectively when you have tokens that are in that database those tokens are scarce they can't be quoted to replicate it just like gold it has that property and that's very unique it's never been done before in a digital sense the tokens are the big ones exactly right so you're solving you're
4:55 am
paying the people who are lending their c.p.u. their computers to hash and in exchange they're getting a token you know those tokens it just so happens can be used now like money and that's why it was an experiment because when it was first built the tokens had no value then you could buy a pizza for you know ten thousand of them and now a lot of people are millionaires as a result of the appreciation of value because they're scarce ok right and so scarcity here's another description i would apply to a bit coin on the scarcity issue in other words you could say big oil and the idea of a big coin are the solutions to these cripple logical problems i've always existed since the beginning of time but only in the last five years as there are better enough computer power and the ability to network computers to actually go into the digital space a mind them you could like for example gold's been in the earth's crust right forever but it took technology and capital to go mind the gold the idea of turning a triple logic all solution into a currency it was kind of there since the beginning of time you could say because
4:56 am
mathematics has been with us since the beginning of time but it was only when the last few years that you could harness together a network of computers solve this for this problem and get at this extremely scarce number of this precious number and i call them precious numbers for this in this way and a monetize precious number is that fair. so crazy that over overly poetic you needed a lot of magic things to happen for quite to exist you needed the guys in the eighty's were thinking about digital currencies to do the things you needed wadeye to do this work with crypto plus plus you needed bad impact to go ahead and create hashcash and all these things aggregated together at this beautiful paradigm shifting focal point which was the toshi not most white paper it was really the capstone and we do this all the time in math if you look at andrew wiles when he sold for much less there and it wasn't just andrew wiles there was hundreds of people cited because you needed all those meth petitions that came before to build something some tool to give him so because it is really the capstone of that theory
4:57 am
and it's the next step our hope is we're looking at everything that's been done in the pick an ecosystem we've looked at all the innovations all the failures and said ok now that we know these things let's try to build another step and then somebody is going to build another step after us so the intrinsic value story for big oil and the theory of all comes back to scarcity yeah it comes back to scarcity and in a sense it also comes back to the social network around the money money so that is something that very few people are talked about in a way that seems to resonate out there because people just assume that digits are infinite but they're not in this case because these are solutions and numbers right that require vast arrays of computers to solve for. translating into scarcity but anyway we've got to go and i told you we'd be running out of time quickly and we'd be all crying about it but in fact we're out of time so i must make a buy but thanks so much for being on the kaiser report thank you so much max super . and that's going to do it for this edition of the kaiser report with me max keiser and stacy herbert i'd like to thank our guest charles hoskins and of the
4:58 am
syrian project if you like to get in touch tweet us a kaiser report the next time by. winter is when the sorrow comes to life. a waste. trees are being harvested. people are waiting for the biggest event of the yeah. the desert festival. this is true it is really out of this nation eating camel races have spent the last year preparing for the grueling marathon. the day before the race there's a heavy sandstone overcoming the power of nature is a never ending challenge. so far on a desert winter on r.t. .

they look like bounty yard. where the locals can enjoy the sun and the ocean. but what was buried here years ago. means these people are suffering the consequences. how much more poison lies on the this ground. behind this there is what we call the collect bank called which there is a because it alters the code you left by security test which calls for your station of radionuclides despite your the screening efforts they were made to don't hold it last a little less than two of the laws of the tony and when you're stuck in a rock song i don't know if the coral reef though it's out of the last ten meters down nuclear test a never ending legacy on off he. says
5:00 am
. gunmen sent from ukraine's capital attend an overnight assault on crimea as interior ministry there told us to return calls on russia to help and for local referendum on powers to be speeded up. and m.p.'s threatening russia with new clear leverage even some of the country's revolutionaries valid bloody reprisals against the authorities there hopes of. russia insists its actions in crimea fully complying with longstanding agreements with ukraine while the new government in kiev whips up military hysteria. and also this hour in syria
5:01 am
rebel convoy attack september still read a big chemical designed mental break to undermine the government's credibility with the international community. this is all seen to national coming to you live from moscow. and welcome to the broad. and the breaking news this hour and it's believed armed man sent from kiyo the crimean interior ministry and also you can tell us more right now live hi there you bring us up to date. over the night several groups of armed men sent from have tried to capture several administrative buildings here in the crimea including the interior ministry but self defense squads as they're known here repelled the
5:02 am
attacked although several people are reported to have been injured all of this is according to the local prime minister has now announced that he is putting all the local security services in the crimea under his control including the police the military the navy and the border guards local authorities have also set a new date for a referendum and to establish more are taught to me from kiev and have asked russia for protection now moscow says that it will pay attention to these requests and is also very concerned about the events here in the crimea it's also said that it's really disappointed with the new authorities in kiev aggravating the situation like that here in the top of this republic. russia's deeply concerned with the recent developments in crimea in the you know i should first on demand sent from kiev and i don't attempt interior ministry of the crimean a thousand of us who probably this to a truce probably kishen last several people injured thanks to him as well to actually save the south and squads return to seize the building was this latest
5:03 am
incident proves that certain political circles are rigged to destabilize discretion in the crimea where each issue thank you it is from kiev to show restraint we believe that a further escalation of the tense situation in crimea is responsible. now the acting prime minister in kyrgyzstan saying that local authorities have no legal rights to hold any type of independent referendum under the new laws which have been passed and passed just recently in kiev and also they've been saying that they're going to try to do everything in their power to prevent tourists from coming to the crimea during the summer including russians ukrainians bell russians and other europeans in the meantime these so-called self-defense squads have been patrol. the key facilities in the crimea including two airports the building of the local parliament and t.v. channel and basically people here are not recognizing these new authorities in kiev
5:04 am
saying that they are extremists who hijacked power now russia has also said that it's really to provide to grant citizenship to members of the former. swat teams who fought against the writers during the violence in kiev for four more in this year's report by my colleague marty if emotional. this is the golden eagles swan song the best cooks ukraine's elite police force after weeks of deadly clashes in the capital kiev on the orders of the ministry of internal affairs to protect government buildings from rioters the barricades are no more. ukraine's new authorities were quick to disband the thousand strong and to write unit. former officers were made to publicly kneel in western ukraine and beg for forgiveness while locals shouted shame pelting them with objects the country's acting interior minister posted on his internet page that the better because a finished for
5:05 am
a new master for politico more for it's hard for us there are many among us who sacrificed their health and lives to protect citizens of after twenty two years of service they just threw us out like garbage it's paying for oil and you know victor denisov spent two decades. with him says the grandmothers in kiev really. can't to the face on what the story. will be if the choose a new year in his transformation in russia president did apologize for that i believe. office is a pallet molotov cocktails thrown at us very clearly being shot at by live ammunition and you killed i apologize to those courageous people who have stood up and suffered. name a google. we go there can't say that i don't accept these apologies at the end of the day we didn't fight fianna coverts and it was not him personally we protected
5:06 am
we tried to particularly have been ordered to allow muscling to function to. us from the body other i show which is one of numerous beatings police authority tell you show your betters in action keep silent while watching. you know you're going these videos you can see we're patient here because it's a beating it was doing before they were arrested what was going on that was a real war and only experienced people with special training could tolerate that a little and the violence they witnessed led to more violence could do with the british risk your way in the middle of the dinner had a very good veteran association who believes that the warring sides withdraw from equal work is only because burkas were not professional when they faced the world of finance and a well trained force their recognitions was excellent they knew about our tactics and strategies they were traitors in every department of right and were naked in their blind. going. with their kids reputation now
5:07 am
haiti undermined by the interim government in kiev the remains at least one place in ukraine are still discounted ukraine southern autonomy is region of crimea we could nice tonight the kids need masters know the in-laws and they refused to disarm the bankers in fact they reinforced them instead this is the headquarters of ukraine's very good here in crimea so for openers you can see the buildings surround by barricades and patrolled around the clock so-called people's guards are here day and night they say they are worried about attacks this is the upside down reality of ukraine today those whose mission just until recently was to secure a peace and prosperity of the country's population are today in need of protection themselves people here have different backgrounds they're from different ethnic groups. but they share one common goal this is only one protection murgatroyd the army of folks who came to power as
5:08 am
a result of that aren't they controlling the puppet government petitioning decrees at gunpoint including disarming and storming birchard where protecting their families burped surface or is there also our protectors against people who are committing terror in other areas of ukraine those who gathered here say they don't want to firemen's but if it comes here they would be ready to resist even if they have to pay with their own lives rich notion r t from crimea. at the same time people in eastern ukraine are readying for counter protest against new analysis and the minds on movement they're planning peaceful rallies using social networks and as you can see demonstrations are planned in a number of cities across the east and south of the country and hard for instance say they want everybody to see the real situation in ukraine and to reject what they call the nationalistic dictatorship rising in the country in donetsk there's a wait to see if its citizens will move against occupation and intervention and
5:09 am
tell the former opposition leaders they're not welcome. meanwhile some of those who held the current government into power are already vowing to turn against in your source. a. great success for it is a great i will destroy anyone who comes here i will be interior minister like a dog or a. radical militant leader alexandra's each so is seen here reaction to the interior minister's pledge to investigate his recent actions on sunday who broke into a regional prosecutor's office and bullying the prosecutor's assistant threatening him with a gun this action is from the right sector group has a long history of radicalism is known for his and his to mitigate and neo nazi abuse as well as for fighting against russian troops in the campaign in the one nine hundred ninety s. . and it's not only music chicago that's making headlines but his competitors two
5:10 am
representatives of the new ukrainian government are already threatening to literally go new clear if they don't get their way a deputy from this for border party warns that could go back on its own condition and stalk its nuclear arsenals six months in a situation and now reports. double standards go to war washington suffer sleepless nights and paranoia when it comes to the nuclear capabilities of countries like iran around nuclear program around strictly a program iran's nuclear program but the us turns a blind eye when it comes to provocative statements coming out of key have one member of the ukrainian parliament's ultra nationalists hobbled the party warns that a fresh a doesn't tread carefully it will be dealing with a nuclear power that's the rhetoric despite ukraine signing up to the international nuclear nonproliferation treaty of one thousand nine hundred four there is a double standard when it comes to the way that the united states deals with supposedly nuclear threat from iran which let's not forget there is absolutely no
5:11 am
evidence whatsoever that iran intends to develop nuclear weapons for for aggressive military purposes unlike iran the warning from the ukrainian lawmaker includes an actual deadline of just a few months this in a conflict torn country where even the most pessimistic predictions ended up becoming a reality but none of that seems to disturb the us the money that we can't use to feed the poor the hungry in the united states and in europe that money is going to support nazis in ukraine with nuclear ambitions who are looking to destabilize the region and whose sole goal is the destruction of russia is yet another example of hypocrisy flying high from a country that touts itself as the world's leading democracy and cannot r.t. new york. so we've heard the threat but is it really feasible we've been pushing together the finance about ukraine's nuclear capabilities and here's what we found
5:12 am
ukraine is a bit of a nuclear addict it draws almost half of its energy from atomic power and is home to europe's largest nuclear power plant there tomic energy of ukraine is very closely tied with that of russia of course and all of the reactors are of russian design so he is the chair close to what it takes to build a nuclear bomb manpower and know how so ukraine has the facilities and scientists in that field and for fuel ukraine buys low enriched uranium from russia and it's not a weapons grade but if you don't want to waste time and witching you can use a reactor ways to make a dirty bomb but to do that ukraine would not only be breaking its international commitments but its very own constitution as well which forbids nuclear weapons as for delivery vehicles or nuclear payload can be filled in a simple artillery shell or rocket but can it be done in three to six months the answer we arrived to is that yes
5:13 am
a so-called dirty bomb could be put together in that timeframe but political and economic analysts martin see from the global news globalist news website told us that threat is most likely just talk vs threats are probably extreme and irresponsible bluff but it's very alarming to hear them being made in the first police new government which is now emerged to keep. other figures like the opposition state with the least to act in the responsible manner to earn the deserved respect and trust and cooperation of the international community that comment is disastrously card to productive and should be seen as search. russia's actions in crimea are within the scope of agreements with ukraine on the presence of the black sea fleet that assertion is from moscow's permanent un envoy the new authorities in kiev are getting excited and exerted rather troop movements and that
5:14 am
concern has been echoed by the us president but it well barack obama didn't specify exactly what it is that his word about has going now chicken reports. president obama says the u.s. is now quote deeply concerned by reports of military movements taken by the russian federation inside of ukraine then president obama goes on to warns against quote any military intervention in ukraine this leaves us with a lot of questions what movements does the president mean russia's black sea fleet has been based in ukraine in crimea for many years and russia's military does make movements there all the time under existing agreements between russia and ukraine according to moscow those movements do not extend beyond those agreements we heard from the russian ambassador to the land we have an agreement with ukraine on the presence of the russian. black sea fleet with a base in the sebastopol and we are acting within the framework of that agreement so you have moscow saying that it will stick to its obligations under existing
5:15 am
agreements but president obama was apparently echoing the statements from interim authorities in kiev rather than reacting to what moscow said or done the interim leader in q. spoke shortly before president obama and accused russia of a military invasion and the white house for the fear of the tensions saying president obama may reconsider his trip to the g. eight summit in russia if moscow intervenes militarily again there are no statements from moscow i would back up those warnings and and threats we even heard from the u.s. state department earlier that it cannot say that russia has broken any of its commitments. and any boy who is ukrainian affairs analyst told us that the white house should think twice before relying on hearsay. what i'm thinking is happening with the white house is that they're using this is a pretext to cover up their own involvement i think it's infinitely easier to clip to now accuse russians of intervening in ukraine to cover up the fact that the
5:16 am
current crisis is a product of american intervention to begin with i haven't heard any reports of russian troop movements i know that there are several russian formations stationed in the bases in the crimea as per the international contract signed with the ukrainian government years ago and that there were reports of local militias being set up to respond to the usurpation of government in kiev so and then of course there are conflicting reports from u.s. sources but the government sources are saying there's no true route russian movement and then you have certain media basing these reports on certain activists again who have no credibility and are frequently anonymous and says it's it is believed or it is reported who is it who is reporting it who is believing here that these are russian troops until we know what is it what exactly is going on i think it's irresponsible to start accusing russians of a military intervention. while the political crisis rages on the economy continues to crumble ukraine now owes russia two billion dollars
5:17 am
a night payment for gas and is in danger of losing its discount from the bridge group politico think there's little chance that even the western powers that supported the un prizing will be able to help ukraine now. the problems of the largely created in ukraine by western european union and united states involvement a really seriously destabilized ukraine's economy fall in direct investment will do our government debt is now reduced to junk status people will not be wanting to invest in ukraine getting its economy moving again there's been serious political turmoil and that is never a good situation for encouraging investment ukraine has some very serious challenges ahead the collapse in the value of its carbon c. will lead to high inflation things are not looking good at all. stay with us internationally for more world news after the break.
5:18 am
we'll call it on the road side to the car skidded at breakneck speed and fell into a ditch and i was thrown out the car was like a broken dog it wasn't a single piece left. if i lived and had a chance to start my life from scratch with it i would start making goals to help children. become a great after he was born the baby was all in casts. his legs are getting bigger and the earth get too small so we have to order new ones to his raise money for us she helps us to get a leg braces five years after my potentially fatal injuries in a car crash i gave birth to my little niece and i think she's my reward for helping all those children who are selling the dogs to buy life for the children.
5:19 am
you can buy outer space with bitcoin you can buy just about anything you can think of with bitcoin at this point so the real question is what can't you buy with because. this is an international welcome bach syria has repels to attend to the tongues on its chemical weapons convoys they also know is as exposed as ever joining the operation to destroy the toxic arms with mittens exploiting that's wrong our ability to deal rail to process point to see our reports now on how the civil war is hungering the design movement. for the first time in history a country tasked with destroying its chemical arsenal while the war the problem on chemical weapons is that the syrian regime has dragged and is not moving forward in the way that the security council and the o.p.c. laid out that it should move forward it's true that syria is struggling to fulfill
5:20 am
its promises and commitments but syria denies in the very strongest terms it is deliberately slowing things down. a look at the history of syria since the formation of the united nations of which syria is an establishing member will show that syria has always been committed to its files it has never given a promise without fulfilling it when we talk about transferring these weapons we talk about hundreds of kilometers the need to be passed in safe conditions the terrorists threaten they would try to target the convoys. damascus says its efforts to destroy its stockpiles have been slowed down by radicals sabotaging its efforts they've attacked weapons carriers and made transporting the chemicals even more difficult and dangerous syrian soldiers have been killed guarding these chemical weapons the lines were set only for a matter of weeks for syrian state is for the u.s. to damascus has repeatedly said it will abide by its commitments but the opposition
5:21 am
has yet to make the same claim what's more even the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons is managing the removal process says the given deadlines are soft deadlines and the west should not be too concerned about them being missed at this stage and. when you put a schedule your put it theoretically on the ground will just tick and security conditions may alter and many obstacles mean there you. a fourth consignment containing mustard gas he left syria a few days ago delays are not insurmountable delays have a reason there's a rationale there's a context syria was supposed to complete its chemical weapons with louvel by march but damascus is asking for an extension until mid may to complete a job that everyone knew wasn't going to be easy. and michael lee hung from the organization for being prohibited of chemical weapons how the slowdown is being tackled getting excellent cooperation from the syrian authorities through the first part of this mission but in fact we've seen
5:22 am
a significant slowdown in activities the last couple months and that's what needs to be reversed at this point arming the. other states parties of the of p c w precisely particularly the russian federation the united states norway denmark the united kingdom others have all pitched in with a range of support and assistance to the naval the syrian government to pack up and transport the remaining chemicals our colleagues in the united nations in syria are constantly in touch with this little green range of rebel groups that are operating on the ground to try to negotiate and help negotiate south safe passage britain is a lagging behind in cleaning up its polluted aquila tea and that could see it having to cough up and a huge fire in of hundreds of millions of pounds but some m.p.'s and western is to
5:23 am
say it's a smokescreen covering up some on the hand political game playing as a lower smith explains. another breach of in a you impose diktats and not the by this time it's about pollution the u.k. has failed to meet its e.u. target to reduce pollution so busy road it may just cities have higher than agreed levels of nitrogen dioxide the target should have been met three years ago and now the government has two months to present a plan and the cost of not doing math a staggering three hundred million pounds some say it's no secret about the bush any more because britain led the way in first of all stopping increases to the budget then leading the charge to reduce the budget first time is that the e.u. bureaucrats are really targeting britain and no doubt some other countries to try
5:24 am
and make up the revenue will do by imposing fines for even the slightest technical preach that's if accurate is reprehensible and i'm acceptable and just once again shows that this is an organization that is out of touch with the realities my constituents and of his face the e.u. has singled out britain for persistently breaching that quality directive regulations but it's not the only reason the u.k.'s being flat on the wrist by the e.u. by the end of last year there were no fewer than forty seven north seats outstanding where the u.k.'s accused of breaking european law they covered a massive range of things from import duties on fresh garlic from china to truck through missions to the cleanliness of beaches to toy safety all of those north food could end in quickly by its from the european union. and i had a look at surviving drug addiction and mental illness and kind of fournier but if
5:25 am
you're watching us in britain times they decide they week's biggest story. judy cox a utah mother out of spite but an entire line of t. shirts at a popular chain store at her local mall the reason that she bought them was because she feels that the images of nearly naked women on them violate her local towns decency code she wants to make it clear though that she feels the store has the right to sell this type of shirt just not displayed in an exterior window ultimately her plan is to return the shirts on day fifty nine of the store's sixty limit let's hope for her sake they don't have a no return policy i bring this up because this is a great example of a nonviolent form of protest that actually works cause the scandal and more importantly it will make the company lose a few dollars technically the girls on the shirts are even fully exposed believe me
5:26 am
i checked thoroughly and i would even call them r. rated below communities have the right to be more conservative than the rest of the nation if they want to be and it's good that judy cox actually did something rather than just sitting at home on the air complaining about moral decay across the country if a housewife from a small mormon community could stand up to the man what's stopping you but that's just my opinion. global hotspots in tipping points from ukraine in venezuela to syria the united states is seen at the forefront forcing the change in countries that challenge the washington consensus this is been the habit of neo conservatives for some time. the genetic code of the western world.
5:27 am
skid row as a neighborhood of fifty blocks which does not appear on any map of los angeles. do. you. mean you. need to know. the route. do you.

5:30 am
a different area when big money developers began to revitalize downtown the flop houses got new neighbors and penned houses and high end lofts. there are not many places where the gap between rich and poor is a striking as it is here. literally for us just a block or two separating those two things and i presume where there's muscles are proving those two things i was. going over to i'm scared this is the new are proving i still turn back here we were to drop it people didn't come down to see into downtown because this well the heroin addicts leo you know all this is dirt fields and burn barrels and they will cut your throat down to your people to come past main street getting different call the pits back the down. the people have told me different for us a whole generation. it's good rosenau just same potential real estate story for ground troops here that people are interested in not much interest on the
5:31 am
people who are on the ground everyone who lands on skid row has a story to tell about how they got there for many it's the last stop after losing everything for some the fall is the specially turn to take my life you know prior to come an escape. in some ways like most people in other ways it was a little bit different you know i was born in compton grew up there with five brothers and sisters lost my dad when i was three my mom when i was fourteen at that point i moved out to california and i was nath the high school and decent student and started smoking weed you know in high school at the age of fourteen after my mom passed away yet and still you know i was good enough athletically to earn a full. scholarship to university of iowa state university where i was a national champion in track and field and also was able to go and qualify for the
5:32 am
olympic games in eighty four where i actually competed in one of so medal so it at eighteen years old you know obviously going into the olympics a year out of high school was very exciting i had a lot of emotion going on. you know in one nine hundred eighty eight i started to experiment with the drugs they ended up you know getting involved with cocaine freebasing cocaine and that was the beginning of a twenty year journey for me as an addict i had lost everything i had lost my shoe contract i had lost my house i had lost all the financial means that i head and was really on the street. sleeping on the street for the first time and actually laying down on the sidewalk you know and trying to close your eyes and next to go to sleep when you're outdoors those are the things as an addict that most people don't really talk about so the first time i came down to skid row i was pretty much horrified. i was amazed at the number of the military down here i was
5:33 am
amazed and where some of the people had come from. the midnight mission first opened its doors and nine hundred fourteen cents and thousands have passed through its drug and alcohol treatment program. two hundred forty four men occupy this space here at the mission and we're going to go and see where i got my humble beginnings in recovery this is the residence when you first come into the midnight mission everyone that comes in has to come through this dormitory first. so this was my bed c three up and you can see this empty this is just the way it was when i when i got here i did a lot of soul. starting this bit right here i had to make up my mind whether or not i was going to try to stay sober what the program was for me what i was really
5:34 am
doing here you know at forty one years old what are you going to do i mean at that point for me it was either you go forward you know what the other lifestyle or you try to pull back and do something different. any time you can fall from grace or you fall from from lofty heights if you want to use that word. it's humbling. the area has always attracted outsiders. some stay for a. while if it's never. come albert olson but everybody calls me bam bam i'm a punky ex new yorker my story starts way back when i was a kid unfortunately. in nursery school would be my teacher would share i was thrown out of every school with a one two i been seemed to loose natan and hearing voices i was since i was a kid i got i'm one of those cases where i'm bipolar schizoaffective i have

5:36 am
kid and by losing my kid and everything else i really really really were smart and i was where i first became homeless because i couldn't rationally. deal with where my life had gone i've been electrician for all these years or always worked. back in the mid seventy's through the mid eighty's we didn't call them homeless back then we were emptying our mental hospitals by basically saying now we have them instead of help you and you can also get on disability so go forth and take care of yourself the predominant population on the row at that time and continue. are the homeless mentally ill obviously many of them are also involved with addiction and sometimes you can't figure out which came first and that doesn't even matter the fact is they've got a serious mental illness because the institutions don't exist anymore reagan closed
5:37 am
down places they took all the mental people they gave it to society and then where do we go you either get committed and get locked in and smoke a cigarette three times a day and when they tell you or you sit on the street you become homeless and you can at least have your own life to some point. in many ways it's. for the mentally ill we don't have closed asylums anymore except for our jails in our prisons l.a. county twin towers jail is the largest mental institution in the united states. because we no longer hospital or are mentally ill so we criminalized because of their behavior on the streets people were really questioning me like how can you open a place just for people who are crazy isn't that really stigmatized. and i said
5:38 am
no i think we're going to be just the most righteous best. center we're going to have the best food we're going to feel like a family we're going to just make it a place people want to come to. so that people had a place to stay. by like two thousand and two we had one hundred employees half of them were members we also set up our own. i came in contact with some of the most beautiful people. that one could ever know really. really gross. family. you know we could eat together we play cards together we sing together karaoke number close and deal with all types of people. first never been any place i mean all types of

5:55 am
basically what we're born with our genes and drugs. don't mean is the reward neurotransmitter i mean it's what seen and release is from our brain cells when we are sexually aroused when we smell something's good we'd like to be when. we smoke crack the brain of a schizophrenia person untreated unmedicated is awash with dope i mean more souls on the brain of a person that doesn't because from. the scripture frank brain cannot filter out the noises the heat. the vibrations the other people talking to you it's all coming in at once so the medications that we give people for schizophrenia reduce the don't for me unfortunately they reduce it too much
5:56 am
and they feel good in some state don't get to feel pleasure any more. these folks wake up every morning and have to face another day being a stigmatized marginal person in the world and have to make decisions about using street drugs or using prescribed drugs street drugs or easier to get their prescribed drugs street drugs feel better prescribe drugs don't particularly feel better in their hands everywhere it is mentally ill people there's always a major amount of jokes because we need them there it's on medication if we self medicate so be it how else we can do it what else would you like me to do i can't even get my mom would answer the telephone what am i supposed to give her medication so get drugs soup on the street. try to make it.

6:11 am
a nuclear power that's the rhetoric despite ukraine signing up to the international nuclear nonproliferation treaty of one thousand nine hundred four there is a double standard when it comes to the way that the united states deals with a supposedly nuclear threat from iran which let's not forget there is absolutely no evidence whatsoever that iran intends to develop nuclear weapons or for aggressive military purposes unlike iran the warning from the ukrainian lawmaker includes an actual deadline of just a few months this in a conflict torn country where even the most pessimistic predictions ended up becoming a reality but none of that seems to disturb the us the money that we can't use to be the poor in the hungry in the united states and in europe that money is going to support nazis in ukraine with nuclear ambitions who are looking to destabilize the region and whose sole goal is the destruction of russia yet another example of hypocrisy flying high from a country that touts itself as the world's leading democracy and cannot r.t.
6:12 am
new york. and we'll heard this rant but is it really feasible we've been putting together the facts about ukraine's nuclear capabilities and here's what we've found so ukraine is a bit of nuclear addict it draws almost half of its energy from atomic power and is home to europe's largest nuclear power plant the atomic agency of ukraine is very closely tied with that of russia of course and all of the reactors are of russian design so he is the chair close to what it takes to build a nuclear bomb manpower and know how so ukraine has the facilities and specialists in that field and will fuel ukraine bines low enriched uranium from russia and it's not weapons grade but if you don't want to waste time enriching you can use reactor ways to make a dirty bomb and to do so ukraine would not only be breaking the international commitments but its very own constitution as well which forbids nuclear weapons as
6:13 am
for delivery vehicles a nuclear payload can be fitted in a simple artillery shell or rocket but can it all be done in three to six months the answer we arrive to is that yes a so-called dirty bomb could be put together in that frame in that time frame rather but political and economic analyst martin c. from the globalist news website told us that rant is most likely just talk the us threats are probably big stream and irresponsible bluff but it's very alarming to hear them being made in the first police new government which is now emerged to keep. other figures like the opposition state with the least to work in the responsible. to earn the deserved respect and trust and cooperation of the international community that comment is disastrously card to productive and should be seen as search. russia's actions in crimea are within the scope of agreements with ukraine and the presence of the black sea fleet or better assertion is from
6:14 am
moscow's permanent un envoy the new authorities in kiev are getting exercised over troop movements concern has been echoed by the u.s. president as well but barack obama didn't specify exactly what it is that he's worried about as good a teacher can reports. president obama says the u.s. is now deeply concerned by reports of military movements taken by the russian federation inside of ukraine then president obama goes on a warns against quote any military intervention in ukraine this leaves us with a lot of questions what movements does the president mean russia's black sea fleet has been based in ukraine in crimea for many years and russia's military does make movements there all the time under existing agreements between russia and ukraine according to moscow those movements do not extend beyond those agreements we heard from the russian ambassador to the u. when we have an agreement with ukraine on the presence of the russian. black sea
6:15 am
fleet with a base in the sebastopol and we are acting within the framework of that agreement so you have moscow saying that it will stick to its obligations under existing agreements but president obama was apparently echoing the statements from interim authorities in kiev rather than reacting to what moscow said or done the interim leader in q. of spoke shortly before president obama and accused russia of a military invasion and the white house for the fear that tensions are saying president obama may reconsider his trip to the g eight summit in russia if moscow intervenes militarily again there are no statements from moscow i would back up those warnings and and threats we even heard from the u.s. state department earlier that it cannot say that russia has broken any of its commitments and the bush acknowledged who is a ukrainian affairs analyst told us that the white house should think twice before relying on hearsay. what i'm thinking is happening with the white house is that they're using this is
6:16 am
a pretext to cover up their own involvement i think it's infinitely easier to clip to now accuse russians of intervening in ukraine to cover up the fact that the current crisis is a product of american intervention to begin with i haven't heard any reports of russian troop movements i know that there are several russian formations stationed in the bases in the crimea as per the international contract signed with the ukrainian government years ago and that there were reports of local militias being set up to respond to the use of patient of government in kiev so and then of course there are conflicting reports from u.s. sources that the government sources are saying there's no true russian movement and then you have certain media basing these reports on certain activists again who have no credibility and are frequently anonymous and says it's it is believed or it is reported who is it who is reporting it who is believing here that these are russian troops until we know what is it what exactly is going on i think it's irresponsible to start accusing russians of a military intervention. and go to some developments now in the crimean situation
6:17 am
and be a russian parliament let's not talk to. live from crimea right now sorry gora bring is that a fifth. the duma is calling on the president to use all of moscow's capabilities to help crimea and earlier several russian deputies of the doom of just visited the autonomous republic so that potentially russia could help financially socially politically with energy and with security if needed also the city duma has been saying that it's very alarmed about these attacks by the government sent from kiev overnight here to the crimea which attempted to storm several local government buildings and is also expected to release latest actions raise this question with other members of the c.i.s. . right where the latest on this kind of a lie that you are thank you very much indeed for the time that we'll be talking to you later of course while the political crisis is
6:18 am
a rages on in ukraine the economy continues to crumble there so the country now owes russia two billion dollars in late payment for gas and is in danger of losing its discount and robert oulds from the bruges group political thing times says there's little chance that even the western powers that supported the uprising will be able to help ukraine now the problems of the largely created in ukraine by western european union and united states involvement a very seriously destabilized ukraine's economy fall in direct investment. government debt is now reduced to junk status people will not be wanting to invest in ukraine getting its economy moving again there's been serious political turmoil and that is never a good situation for encouraging investment ukraine has some very serious challenges ahead the collapse in the value of its carbon c. will lead to high inflation things are not looking good to talk. stay with us
6:19 am
internationally for more world news after this break. i wonder if you ever felt that this issue of how to beat your rights in russia was perhaps exploited or used as part of the larger geopolitical. feeling when the it was interviewed by the west some media. drama women had reporters all said they say the following yes it's a look september for me especially the media came from you. you can buy outer space with bitcoin you can buy just about anything you can think of we've been coined at this point so the real question is what can't you buy with
6:20 am
because. of the hot spots in the points from ukraine in venezuela to syria the united states the scene at the forefront for change in countries that challenge the washington consensus this is been the how but if neoconservatives for some time is this the genetic code of western europe. welcome bond this is the international syria has proposed to attempted attacks on its chemical weapons convoys they also know is expected as exposed as the operation to destroy the toxic own with militants exploiting that vulnerability to deal rail the process aussies point to reports now on how the civil war weighs humping the design women. for the first time in history a country tasked with destroying its chemical arsenal while its war the problem on
6:21 am
chemical weapons is that the syrian regime has dragged and is not moving forward in the way that the security council. laid out that it should move forward it's true that syria is struggling to fulfill its promises and commitments but syria denies in the very strongest terms it is deliberately slowing things down. look at the history of syria since the formation of the united nations of which syria is an establishing member will show that syria has always been committed to its files it has never given a promise without fulfilling it when we talk about transferring these weapons we talk about hundreds of kilometers the need to be passed in safe conditions the terrorists threatened they would try to target the convoys. damascus says its efforts to destroy its stockpiles have been slowed down by radicals sabotaging its effort they've attacked weapons carriers and made transporting the chemicals even more difficult and dangerous syrian soldiers have been killed guarding these
6:22 am
chemical weapons these deadlines were set only for a matter of weeks for syrian state is for the u.s. to damascus has repeatedly said it will abide by its commitments but the opposition has yet to make the same claim what's more even the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons who is managing the removal process says the given deadlines are soft deadlines and the waste should not be too concerned about them being missed at this stage and. when you put a schedule you put it directly on the ground just sick and security conditions may alter and many obstacles mean there are. a fourth consignment containing mustard gas left syria a few days ago delays are not insurmountable delays have a reason there's a rationale there's a context syria was supposed to complete its chemical weapons were moved by march but damascus is asking for an extension until mid may to complete a job that everyone knew wasn't going to be easy. r.t. . and he asked michael lohan from there when i was
6:23 am
a show where they prohibited of chemical weapons how this slowdown is being called . we're getting excellent cooperation from the syrian authorities through the first part of this mission but in fact we've seen a significant slowdown in activities the last couple months and that's what needs to be reversed at this point in time. the most other states parties of the o.p.c. w precisely particular the russian federation the united states norway denmark the united kingdom others have all pitched in with a range of support and assistance to the naval the syrian government to pack up and trans fourth remaining chemicals our colleagues in the united nations into syria are constantly in touch with this little green range of rebel groups that are operating on the ground to try to negotiate and help negotiate south safe passage
6:24 am
ration is lagging behind in cleaning up its polluted air quality and that because c. is having to cough up and e.u. fine of hundreds of millions of pounds but someone pays investment to say it's a smokescreen covering up some underhand political game play as long as they explain. another breach of an age you impose diktats an author by this time it's about pollution the u.k. has failed to meet its e.u. target to reduce pollution so busy roads in major cities have higher than agreed levels of nitrogen dioxide the target should have been met three years ago and now the government has two months to present a plan and the cost of not doing that it's a staggering three hundred million pounds some say it's no secret about the rules anymore because britain led the way in first of all stopping increases to the
6:25 am
budget then leading the charge to reduce the budget first time ever is that the e.u. bureaucrats believe targeting britain and no doubt some other countries to try and make up the revenue by imposing fines for even the slightest technical preach that's if accurate is reprehensible and i'm acceptable and just once again shows that this is an organization that is out of touch with the realities my constituents and of his face the e.u. has singled out britain for persistently breaching their quality directive regulations but it's not the only reason the u.k.'s been flat on the wrist by the e.u. by the end of last year there were no fewer than forty seven mil seats outstanding where the u.k.'s accused of breaking european law they covered a massive range of things from import duties on fresh garlic from china to tractor emissions to the cleanliness of beaches to toy safety all of those north food could
6:26 am
end in crippling by the european union. and now back to the top story the situation in ukraine and in crimea in particular and let's go live now to ensure there is a research on russian affairs from the british east west center. mr ash apart welcome to aussie so events in the crimea are spiraling with reports now of an armed siege of the interior ministry obviously in the region where russia's black sea fleet is stationed and where mold on fifty percent of population is ethnic russians can russia really be expected to completely stand aside. russia russia would be let's say moscow should not be silent on this issue it needs to communicate with the western capitals namely in brussels paris berlin and also london and also washington d.c. we need to communicate now we have great haste that we do not want.
6:27 am
an aggressive conflict over this this. is not a small issue but it could escalate pretty. we need to start. russia has already said it won't leave crimea has called for help on onset as we know but what kind of onset do you expect it. well you already got the russian russian armed forces a high high level of mobilization they're currently carrying out active exercises throughout the can of the western and also the central regions so you could potentially have a scenario if something happened like a simple spark where some agitator or some some. some person within ukraine decides to take it upon themselves to harm russian interests now that can be anything between. between trying to destroy.
6:28 am
various sites of interests but also. solo russians and there are plenty of fellow russians within the crimea but also throughout ukraine. this is an issue that will not go away unless people decide to calm down and go back to their homes and try and allow order. to come about ukraine needs peace right now not tomorrow absolutely and we know that crimea is autonomy referendum has now been moved forward two months what reaction do you expect from your hear as if there's a positive wild on crime is moving away. well what is. i'm really sorry to interrupt you now but right now we just have to show you what's happening at session of the russian parliament which is discussing the be
6:29 am
provision to be central i was going to. buy groups. to penetrate different facilities in crimea for example there was an attempt to seize the mini stereo when by the rear of. the police you know it's this is obviously done for the purpose of destabilizing the operation of local authorities in destabilize the situation where i mean general de. the council of the state duma wu documents first. statement by the council of the stadium on behalf of the deputy so. he said this statement expressing concern over the latest developments in ukraine. is concerned over.
6:30 am
the political crisis in ukraine. and the second that you're documented this is just in the adopted by the council of this city duma again on behalf of all the deputies of the state duma he's an appeal to the president of the russian federation and in this document to the deputies encourage the president but he needs to take measures . in order to help or to take measures. the because it's up to you to help stabilize the situation in crimea have it's see it and to use was more than all her resources a ship that is bailable to russia to protect the russian population of crimea from a lawless n'est and violence that's number one number two and then after the
6:31 am
question we had yesterday plenary session i decided to set up a working group. including the deputies of the state duma in the pennant experts and the embers of the republic to chambre to monitor that in the it's the legislative procedure is seeing you and new decision of the meeting. i gave instructions is going to get to. the council of europe pentagon. so i hold the genius commission in this to bring you my regarding the illegitimacy of the decisions made by bremer and also i gave instructions to address. or parliamentary assembly of the c.i.s. regarding. monitoring that. illegitimacy
6:32 am
low fullness self that is a c.-h. since no made in ukraine and current laws there thank you. from the head of the russian state to do you mad and the duma is actually about to appeal to the president of the russian federation to take measures to help stabilize the situation in crimea and to protect the russian population there as well and continue to monitor the situation in ukraine that and to monitor the current. procedures in ukraine and to appeal to european institutions to stabilize the situation in ukraine as well as in crimea of course we keep a very close eye on what's going on in ukraine and we'll be back in about seven minutes time stay with us here on all seem to national next day breaking decides on
6:33 am
they were spying program that time to into millions of people's webcams. be friday everyone i'm abby martin and this is breaking the set well i've got a great show for you guys today i'll be talking about enough to be allocatable shining a light on all things outer space and featuring a very special musical performance you won't want to miss those that back relax and let's break with. a. very. well i never had sex with her right there.
6:34 am
in a post nine eleven world the method of a trap meant to create and foil terrorist attacks has become all too common in fact many times it seems like the f.b.i. is pouring billions of dollars into these entrapment programs in order to justify the continuation of the war on terror however the rational always comes back to one thing nine eleven and although the bush administration fronted like they could never have fathom such a thing happening just eight years prior alleged terrorists had already attempted to blow up the world trade center towers on february twenty sixth one thousand nine hundred three a truck bomb was set off in the basement of one of the towers killing six people and injuring one thousand more their original intent was for the bomb to actually
6:35 am
knock down both towers but the explosives were place close enough to the central columns to do so and like any event that gives the military industrial complex cannon fodder you can bet there's a hollywood revisionist script to accompany it. wouldn't . use. any. so is it really true that nobody knew what was coming back in one thousand nine hundred three well not according to a celeb an f.b.i. informant that had penetrated the inner circle of the group plan in the bombing after the attack happened so long claim that he was in close contact with the f.b.i. for months and that the agency could have easily stopped it but instead they chose
6:36 am
to do nothing. f.b.i. agents might have been able to prevent last february's deadly explosion at new york's world trade center they discussed secretly substituting harmless powder for the explosives but they didn't according to the f.b.i. his own informant emotes alam. to the f.b.i. at the time so when recorded many of his conversations with his handlers in one celeb complains to an f.b.i. agent since the bomb went off i feel terrible i feel bad i feel here is people who don't listen the agent replies hey i mean it wasn't like you didn't try and i didn't try you can't force people to do the right thing. no the new york times the informer was to have helped the plotters build the bomb and supply the powder but the plan was called off by an f.b.i. supervisor who had other ideas about how the informer. should be used so i'm also made audio recordings of his interactions with the f.b.i. before the attack because he was suspicious that the other men involved in the
6:37 am
bombing might entrap him with the crime to this day the official government nine remains that the bombings couldn't have been stopped fast forward to today in a bizarre twist turns out that the f.b.i. also had an informant inside bin laden's top inner circle as early as one thousand nine hundred three the same year as the first world trade center bombing according to n.b.c. the f.b.i. had a mole inside al qaeda a new bin laden plan to finance terror attacks but the bureau declined to tell congressional investigators or the nine eleven commission the mole and b c news has learned exclusively was an l.a. based driver and confidant of the blind sheikh omar abdel-rahman now in prison for his role in planning the original ninety three terror attack on new york's world trade center the fact that the towers had already been a terror target and that there's more was aware of bin laden's plans to carry out future terrorism delivers yet another blow to the official government narrative which maintains that there was zero knowledge that the attacks were simply
6:38 am
a failure of imagination remember this. i don't think anybody could have predicted that these people would take an airplane and slam it into the world trade center take another one and slam it into the pentagon that they would try to use an airplane as a missile. right while the known existence of a mole among bin laden's top leadership for all this time just adds to the incredulous nature that the government simply had no clue what was coming in fact now infamous august sixth memo titled bin laden determined to strike in the u.s. was just the tip of the iceberg when it came to the plethora of warnings about the attacks the new york times revealed in two thousand and twelve that dozens. more came before that p.b. in the months leading up to nine eleven not to mention the dozens of intelligence warnings that came directly from foreign governments but here we are still basing a worldwide war on an official story that's full of holes so how many more documents and morals need to be exposed in order for us to stop lying to ourselves
6:39 am
. the question of whether or not we're alone in the universe falls on every person's mind while last year astronomers from u.c. berkeley added fuel to that lingering thought when they announce that as many as three billion habitable planets good example in our galaxy alone and just this week nasa scientists captured the world's attention after announcing that the kepler space telescope discovered seven hundred fifteen new planets the largest cluster ever unveiled at once so here to help me talk about this latest discovery as well as a few more stories from beyond earth i'm joined by b.t.s. producer a man well rob lowe what's up minutes ago and i'm going to hand it over and over again people are going to make fun of us who are doing it but i don't care many you know talk about how nasa found this was from this new technique called verification
6:40 am
by multiplicity i mean talk about that and also how do we know if they are habitable these planets so we can go have a second planet earth you know falls apart. this technique it's brand it's called verification by multiplicity like you just mentioned and it relies on the fact that a lot of what now so it's doing through the kepler telescope is relying on the statistical probability that a certain group of stars may have more planets than another and what they're looking at is the orbital shadows that form when a planet passes in front of one of these stars so instead of just pointing blankly guessing it into the night sky just to clear the night sky they're actually taking what statistically more probable to have one or two more predator planets around the around a specific star and what they found is that over three. hundred of these stars had seven hundred fifteen new planets four of those new planets that were discovered were found and what's. called the goldilocks zone or the habitable zone which means that just like earth is at a certain distance from the sun where it's not too hot not too cold it's just right
6:41 am
for for life to exist that could very well be the possibility and these new worlds that they just discovered so this is a huge huge discovery prior to this we only knew of a thousand planets in our galaxy and now we've almost doubled that with this new discovery absolutely amazing and let's that which brings me of course to mars because if you're talking about one planet that people are trying to call and eyes it's mars i mean it seems like that's where all these space efforts are focused on . this news that you just told me about it five dollars for your name on a crater and this sounds like a scam like buying a star for your girlfriend yeah i mean what the hell is that i think that anybody that's willing to spend even five dollars they can go up to ten dollars is this company that the selling the rights they're mapping the surface of mars but they're selling the rights of people can buy the buy a pet rock if you're going to buy a crater on mars i don't maybe there's an island that says that who was the person that was like you know what that's me i'm the one who's going to own mars and i'm in one who's going to sell the rocks somebody is going to be rich and somebody is going to get rich off this oh but i do love that we have this video this is
6:42 am
a clip of this dutch company that's planning to build a settlement on mars for none other than a reality t.v. show it's called mars one and they're building settlements they're going to send in two thousand and fifteen to start building settlements and the plan to send the first group of one a one way ticket to mars in two thousand and twenty three and their funding despite we have a reality t.v. show the people that are responsible for this project are saying you know this is going to make big brother look like child's play this is going to be the big this is a hell media event in this. ok first of all it's amazing that this is happening however why is this private company why is a reality t.v. even locked in this i feel like they're just waiting for these. people to deconstruct fall apart and we can all watch them here on earth i mean they know that they are never coming back for good t.v. they're picking people that are willing to do this some of these isolation tests that they're doing for the mars experiments they're doing them in the polls in antartica keeping these people for a year at a time to test the mental ability to great we can all watch it unfold watching just
6:43 am
seems like a really bizarre social experiment and you know this is the one time that i do agree with private companies not that specifically but just private companies kind of expanding on space travel since we don't really have funding for space here. anymore where we're going in the direction of private space x. and speaking of that i mean you were talking earlier about the space elevator concept that seem like a joke but it's looking more like a reality and yet arthur c. clarke in two thousand and three ten years after people start stop laughing oh i'm so glad that we have stopped laughing at the idea of a. isn't space isn't that amazing is great so good. so this thing would be tethered sixty thousand miles hundred thousand kilometer long tether yeah that's anchored on earth and shoot straight up into space there's a new report that says that this is very well beyond just a concept be done all we need is cooperation from countries we need more investment and research into nano to begin micro fibers and and this could very well be
6:44 am
possible in the next we could be like george clooney and gravity and see the earth from the star trek people keep calling me will we know who this is because it sounds that ok and we have about a minute let's talk about asteroids is that what i look at that i'm like ok as long as there's not giant objects hurdling through crushing the elevator unlike all the things that could happen and which brings me into asteroids hitting the earth talk about what bill nye the science guy recently proposed bill nye is my hero this guy's amazing this is this is this concept of laser bees a swarm of laser b.s. that could intercept an asteroid and then they'd be either solar powered or or self sustaining they would direct beams. of the light just enough to deflect an asteroid so we've heard of nuking an asteroid we've heard of these the solar sails to move them out of the way we've heard of bigger ships coming around and like maybe using their gravity to pull the asteroid away to kind of save the earth from these earth killing asteroids but this by far is the most innovative approach. that i've seen
6:45 am
personally in a lot of scientists agree that this could very well be the best chance earth has of avoiding a deadly collision with the planet because even if one of these goes out you know there's still you have the rest of them that could help propel the object away as amazing and yeah i guess i don't know it just sounds really think this a.t.m. the. laser is on the sharks and you know asteroids i mean yeah we didn't we definitely didn't think about this because this is what killed off the dinosaurs guys we need to kind of put our heads together and figure out how we can interfere with that giant asteroid that hit and hit the moon also yet because they have that on video that was that was pretty amazing as well what i'm worried about is this being used for military and for the al gore the room for some more stuff for now this is a good idea thanks so much manny appreciate it. coming up you guys all future performance by none other than my own brother stay tuned.
6:46 am
despite the incessant commercialization of electronic music my brother robbie martin also known as for us and greg can. and used to push his musical limits while staying true to his art style loosely falls into the genre idea and more intelligent dance music and he's done everything from constructing songs out of fire and water sounds to combining hurts frequencies to cancel out sounds of others also pioneered an independent record label called record label records and co-hosts
6:47 am
a regular podcast with me on media org it was an honor to have him join me on set to perform his latest song we kill kids on a basketball court. violence never brings pump. social problems merely. to a firefight they killed osama bin laden.
6:48 am
the world. will. still. be. some. of these children. your. children. we feel. we feel. we. are right.
6:49 am
we feel. we feel parents. parents we feel. we feel children. children we feel parents. parents we feel parents. thanks. thanks.
6:50 am
thanks. thanks thanks i'll. still. be airplane. i'm so. mad woman and child. in a chair. we still. feel. trolls.
6:51 am
are still memorable from. these drugs. it's. still. your kids. we feel. we feel. we feel. guilty. for. we kill kids. or. we kill kids. or. we kill children. killed
6:52 am
children we killed children children. old . nice freemason jacket man or your freemason. no i'm actually not but i find them extremely worthy of mockery so. yeah you know you like to wear . as a joke but you use a lot of masonic symbolism in your music and your new album has a masonic theme to it talk about the reference there well the new album is called the masonic assassination of william morgan and william morgan was a guy who threatened to expose
6:53 am
a bunch of masonic secrets and oaths in his his book and the masons tried to burn down the printing press this is like back about a century after the american revolution. they tried to burn down the printing press and then when that didn't work they got a judge to throw them in debtors prison a masonic judge and once he was in prison under the watchful eye of the masonic police who work the jail he was kidnapped out of the jail and assassinated and this is really interesting and you were telling me about this before is that the american revolution never would have happened the way it did if it actually weren't for the masons i don't think a lot of people realize how many founding fathers were masons and how it was almost like a antipodean mafia like organization back then oh absolutely. i mean it was such an intimidating mafia like organization that after the death of william morgan the first third party in the united states besides the democrats and the republicans was was created basically the his death was the catalyst for like a huge amount of outrage and nowadays the masons try to paint it as you know
6:54 am
protestants and christians were mad at the masons for thinking they were satanic and things like that but in reality i mean they actually murdered someone who you know threatened to violate their oaths and on top of that you mention the american revolution. the boston tea party you know the infamous event that kick started the revolution was sort of like a masonic false flag event it was planned in a private masonic members. and the club called the green dragon tavern and they actually you know thought up this plan to dress like native americans and sort of stage a populist uprising you know by going onto a boat and throwing tea off of it while and just their control of the media a lot of things just wouldn't happen the way it did if you know you know or or the masonic control you know benjamin franklin owned several newspapers and actually spread propaganda about british soldiers you know to to fan the flames during the revolution of course we know the foundation of d.c.
6:55 am
is one giant masonic symbol and there's. lots of like tronic music why do you think more electronic musicians aren't more politically inclined don't have more of an inside and outside of their music. that's an extremely good question and it's it's becoming increasingly rare to find really in any music but it's it's really bad in electronic music and i say bad i just mean that it's almost impossible to find any modern electronic music that hasn't yet those besides just period escapism and there isn't anything fundamentally wrong with a scape is but. you know sort of the roots of the electronic music that i that i do now you know revolves around rave culture and even rave culture as a skate business and party oriented as it was sort of going to really started it had sort of the inherent built in eat those of you know f. the police f.
6:56 am
the system you know f. night clubs. and eventually just like anything corporate money and big money took over electronic music in the sense that now a rave is you know a giant corporate sponsored event and a giant stadium or it's a nightclub that serves alcohol close to two am and you know raves used to be all about ecstasy and psychedelics and basically bucking the system and you know. so you like we're just going to party all night long. and you know it's become more properties more commercialized like every other genre of music and you actually run an independent record label called record label records i mean how hard has it been how challenging is it been for you to run an indie label in such a world of corporate ties commodified music well it's been really challenging in the sense that my goals can't be you know sales because. you know unless you're sort of writing
