like. breaking news russia's parliament approved the use of military forces in ukraine following a request by president putin and in the appeal for help from authorities in crimea . and east of ukraine thousands rally in a dozen cities against the current government in kiev shoving russia slogans and vying to protect their land from nationalist groups. the leader of ukraine's far right group called international terrorist. a man responsible for terror attacks across russia to step up attacks against moscow. federation council wants
4:01 pm
to recall a time faster than the us off to frightening words from president obama. live from a studio said to in moscow this is international with twenty four hours a day and we start with breaking news this hour russia's upper house of parliament has voted unanimously to approve the deployment of forces in ukraine until the situation there stabilizes president putin had asked the senators to support the move. because of the extraordinary situation ukraine which represents a threat to the lives of russian citizens our compatriots and the contingent of russian armed forces located in the autonomous republic of crimea according to an international treaty stated in the constitution of the russian federation i asked the upper house of parliament for permission to use armed forces new crane until
4:02 pm
the situation there is stabilized. has been following moscow's reaction to events in crimea and the decisions in the russian parliament been made with the lightning speed at least what it seems like however it doesn't mean that we should jump the gun literally and figuratively speaking because the final decision rests with the president president putin who has to say yes or no whether to deploy troops on the ground in ukraine and he hasn't done so yet that point has been emphasized by his spokesman. but he does have the permission to do it just in case the reason for perhaps a need for this permission from the federal council is the fact that russia is precious officials including of course the president and the both houses of the russian problem they're incredibly concerned with the situation surrounding the radical extremist groups. particularly of the national person of nationalistic perseveration who are openly receive phobic and who are permeating. their ears
4:03 pm
branches of the ukrainian government there and are making themselves quite clearly present in a lot of places in ukraine where a lot of russians actually do reside and it's protection of russian citizens and russian nationals in ukraine particularly in the east of the country and in the terms republic of crimea that is the reason for the decisions made by the federation council and of course for the appeal and actions of the russian president. when the authorities in ukraine southern republic of crimea asked the russian president for help following an attempt to capture key and minister to buildings all men sent by the new thirty's in camp what is going to brings us the details overnight a group so formed men sent from kiev tried storming in and capturing several local government buildings here firing weapons and using sound grenades the so-called self defense squads were able to repel these attacks but perhaps this was the
4:04 pm
turning point after wish the crimean prime minister announced that he's temporarily taking over the control of all the crimean security services including the power of the police the military the navy and border guards and he also asked russia for assistance to help protect the local population from any further of possible threats coming from kiev where he said power it was hijacked by extremists as a result of a cool now another thing which the local authorities did today was they changed the de date of the referendum aimed at deciding whether or not the crimea should have more independence from kiev the date was so changed from may to march so it should be held in the very nearest a future just to explain the east and the southeast of ukraine where we are now our region is heavily populated by ethnic russians around ninety percent of people leaving living in these regions they consider russian as their native language this is according to official statistics and the general understanding here is that many
4:05 pm
of the new laws passed by the new afterwards there in kiev are aimed against russians. crimea's appealed for russia's help and its staunch opposition to the current authorities in kiev is rooted in the region's complicated history crimea was part of russia and in the u.s.s.r. it belonged to the russian soviet republic until one thousand nine hundred fifty four that's when the soviet leadership decided to hand it over to ukraine but then of course nobody thought the u.s.s.r. would break up like it did in one thousand nine hundred ninety one and crimea was left as part of independent ukraine but the majority of people living there continued to associate themselves with russia and as you can see here more than half the population of the peninsula are ethnic russians ukrainians and crimean tatars are a minority there now even more people ninety seven percent of the whole population use the russian language in their daily life and work so when the new authorities in kiev put forward a language bill that revoked the rights of native russian speakers it's part protests and calls for greater independence from the ukrainian capital while
4:06 pm
political analyst alexander puppets told me earlier that russia has been serving as a stabilizing force in ukraine since the beginning of turmoil there. i think russia at each point of this crisis three months back has really been destabilizing force here i mean they let's remember they they offered a lifesaver to ukraine back in december fifteen billion dollars and the president. practically rejected it so russia is doing the next step but this is just a preparation for the next step and they keep emphasizing that they're waiting for a legitimate government to be in place once again in kiev and i think russia's not being allowed itself to be provoked right now but it's taking the minimum necessary to protect its own people and its own treaty interest well self-proclaimed president of ukraine alexander will be viewed by moscow as
4:07 pm
a war criminal if military force is used in the southeast of ukraine this statement was made by the head of the lower house of the russian parliament in the southeast areas of the country thousands of taken to the streets to protest against the current authorities in kiev that is refreshing has more. what happened in kiev has shaken not only crimea this very special area but the entire eastern and southern ukraine this vast area traditionally russia leaning ten large regions home to more than half of the country's population and ukraine's industrial center never recognized the country's new authorities that took power they say following and armed coup and this is why we see thousands of people both officials and ordinary residents men women entire families and at least ten major cities all over the area here protesting against the country's new monsters and against what they say could threaten their peaceful future they see the afraid of radical aliments that played
4:08 pm
in able to control in the coup in kiev and they are worried that they could come to their regions bringing violence with them and this is something of course they don't want and in fear of the repetition of the deadly events in the capital thousands took to the streets protesting and demonstrating and calling on russia to help in hardock of the city known as the capital of the eastern ukraine the largest city of this area pro russian for testers managed to finally enter the government building that was captured by so-called chromite don demonstrators for almost a week and raise a russian flag and there was a competition by clashes and shootings and we're hearing that at least one hundred people were injured and this number is rising in another city of donetsk thousands again are on the streets shouting pro russian slogans and we're hearing that local authorities there claim that they would not obey kiev and they voted today
4:09 pm
to have a referendum over the region's taters while the majority of the population in east and south of ukraine say that decisions and laws taken by the country's new authorities are. illegal. well earlier i spoke to on the city keyes the organizer of a rally in the city didn't it proper tough skin eastern ukraine and he explained what drew people to the streets in the first place and why they want protection from russian. people who come together they. never take the way he. claims the power or cultural differences in this country generally imply that we leave. at least. so governments or at least some protection and this is. the police all
4:10 pm
around the country they get them they kill them and the police now is just. has just lost its moral and the only way for us to win protection and we have gathered today. all around the eastern ukraine number of. these groups and these liberals can go to the election but first we need the ordinary store if we need to have the or there is why within. us we're joining me live now is political commentator an example. in london. ukraine's interim authorities there in kiev they've ordered the mobilization of the country's forces in response to moscow's possible deployment of forces there in ukraine is it likely that they will actually send the military to the eastern and indeed the southern part of the country do you think that could actually happened.
4:11 pm
i don't really think so i think that ever since they seized power in key i think they were getting desperate by the day because they suddenly realized that they're not getting that money which they hope to get at once having lost the money coming from russia and this desperation showed in the fact that they repeated all those warnings about the russian invasion the russian aggression and so on and so on and now we see them desperate to nuff to take also you know could make all sorts of problems provocative statements and basically imply that the danger war is rising now the reason they do that is because then they will just need the money desperately and the west is not cutting to give them the money so we will hear all sorts of things coming from key from the new interim players and i think that the west itself i think badly misjudged the reaction of russia to the events there in
4:12 pm
the ukraine and i think it played misjudged the reaction of people in crimea in in the east of the country as well and of course one of the questions is what would the military actually follow the orders all of that interim government in kiev. well it's you know it's very difficult to predict what's going to happen in one sense but really i think that the interim government is steadily frightened if that if it doesn't get the money quickly and if the fails to stop pay salaries to government workers and patients and so long they might face the prone to stem cells in the maya done and in the central square that would be the people would be demanding them to go in and that i think is the biggest war at the moment i also think that they need the money to stop that so-called compay before those presidential elections in may that's i think is the main reason that desperately
4:13 pm
asking for a quick loan you talked about the west and many underestimating the reaction from people in the east and indeed the south of the country we seem to do numbers of people taking to the streets just how much support then does yana covert have now. well in the course it's quite difficult to say how much support he personally has because i don't really think that all these people who want you know who want to say that they don't support the people in key a friend that they would rather be together with russia i don't think they see you know quote which is a powerful figure i don't want to i don't think they want to side with him but i think that's very important for the east to now generate some powerful some of his magic lead us to to need the people because that this this leko but leadership at the moment is obvious but on the other kind of course the good thing is that the new regime. did to diminish human heaved it's probably losing support very quickly
4:14 pm
at least at our science of that and i think that the reason why the people in key. now and the western leaders are talking so much about the possible russian aggression is that i think that they misjudged in the shell plant they thought they could over for all the government over for the president quickly take power and quickly imposed outthought you all over ukraine and writing eastern parts and we saw them trying to get that it didn't work a calyx on to thank you very much indeed great to hear your thoughts on this on its own that make loss of life there and thank you this is all the international here in moscow with me twenty four hours a day we continue to look at the term all in ukraine after a short break. they
4:15 pm
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. to. how much more poison lies on the this ground. behind this there is what we call the callet bank on which there is a because it alters the left by security test was called just delusional radionuclides despite your use of treating efforts they were made to do all that i asked a little less than to the laws of the sodium when you're stuck in iraq the car leave the us out of college ten meters down nuclear tests a never ending legacy. i .
4:16 pm
continued all breaking news this out russia's upper house of parliament has voted unanimously to allow the deployment of military forces in ukraine until the situation that stabilizes let's listen to the statement that was made. that's why the of having considered the appeal of the president of the russian federation and in the interests of the safety of the lives of citizens from the russian federation our compatriots in the personnel of the russian military contingent located in accordance with an international agreement on the territory of ukraine in the its almost republic of crimea the federation council decides first to give consent to the president of the russian federation to use the armed forces of the russian federation on the territory of ukraine for normalization of the political situation in that country second this resolution shall take effect from the date of its
4:17 pm
adoption. when earlier president putin had also senators to support the move following an appeal for help from the authorities in crimea and autonomous republic in the south of ukraine that does not recognize the country's new leadership meanwhile the leader of the country's far right group the right sector reached out to the chechen terrorist document off they urged him to support ukraine and step up the fight against russia ok a model was the islamist leader of the chechen extremist movement and international terrorist russia's equivalent of a solid bin laden he's responsible for deadly terrorist attacks across russia that have taken the lives of dozens of civilians including all means on the moscow metro and it doesn't that international airport the who is also encouraged the separatist movement in chechnya by declaring it and islamic state is currently wanted in russia on charges of kidnapping murder and treason. russia's foreign ministry responded to the appeal to the chechen militant by pointing out
4:18 pm
that many of the groups backed by the west are in fact radicals not sloboda he is from moscow state university he told me earlier that this is a clear threat to russia's national security. this is an international jihad a movement whose stated game goal is to create an islamic caliphate not just in in chechnya but across all of southern russia where there is a muslim population and this is an international effort he has been had troops islamic jihadists fighting in syria fighting in afghanistan so this is an international jihad is threat not simply a national separatist movement as it might perhaps have been some time in the ninety's. it's really no surprise that these. right sector. extreme western ukrainian alter nationalists have made this appeal to mars they have discussed this online before in fact during the chechen wars
4:19 pm
in the one nine hundred ninety s. several of their leaders who are now. in control of kiev openly fought with the chechens against the russians and quite loudly boast about how many russian tanks or how many troops they killed so this is actually an. alliance of devils if you will that we have seen before and so it's really no surprise that in this situation that dmitri euro show again who is not only the right sector leader and in control of the paramilitaries that are basically in control of the streets of kiev at this moment but now he has yes been given a position on the. security and defense council as the deputy within this regime and russia can only regard this as a national security threat while the federation council also wants russia's
4:20 pm
ambassador to the u.s. recalled over president obama's aggressive rhetoric cohen has the details. moscow has not yet decided to withdraw the russian ambassador to the u.s. but the russian federation council or the russian senate and now we hear that also the lower house of the russian parliament that is the russian duma are preparing to address president putting with such a proposal but also they're suggesting to call the ambassador back for consultations and this does not mean as the lawmakers say the breakup of diplomatic relations now whether or not president putin will go through with this is not is not clear at the moment there has been no u.s. reaction to this specific news about the possibility of his role of the russian ambassador and the white house has steered tensions on friday when president obama said russia would pay if it interfered in ukraine take a listen we are now deeply concerned by reports of military movements taken by the
4:21 pm
russian federation inside of ukraine the united states will stand with the international community in affirming that there will be costs for any military intervention in ukraine. president obama had earlier said if russia does intervene militarily he would reconsider his trip to russia in june for the g eight summit this is clearly a new low in u.s. russia relations that it survived many storms in the past what this one will bring is still in the fall we know the u.s. straight a council is meeting this saturday to discuss the situation in ukraine what's happening kiev with the on takeover of power does not easily fit into the framework of international law in fact from a legal standpoint it was a power grab of course then people of mixed emotions take sides and call it different names but for as long as there is no elected power in ukraine it's a volatile situation where people who do not agree with the takeover of power that took place in kiev feel left out of the political process so a lot for the u.n. security council to discuss the u.s. is expected to use the u.n.
4:22 pm
charter's territorial integrity principle to press moscow not to into being. we're getting reports of thousands of ukrainians you want to flee the country and are now applying for asylum in russia ltd a coach in nova told me why some of feeling a sense of panic people in ukraine are very war it of course their worries as fear is growing in ukraine as there is absolutely no clarity of what is happening in the country was going to happen in the near future and now many people in ukraine mostly in south and eastern parts are not at all accepting the new leadership as legitimate and they are feeling very insecure because of that with their right to weigh in hardliners just putting themselves at the court of the emeryville and seeking to control the new government right now rushing to banks trying to withdraw cash from their bank accounts from a.t.m.'s and that's on top of
4:23 pm
that that led to the national bank of ukraine interview stage temporary laments russia's migration service just said that the number of asylum be from ukraine has increased significantly giving numbers such as one hundred forty thousand asylum applications have been received within the past two weeks alarming figures indeed and these figures even increase in the nearest future as the situation just ask just getting out of control. and seeing on the verge of default the country's finance ministry planes the bankruptcy is looming is estimated more than thirty five billion dollars in aid will be needed by the end of twenty fifteen meanwhile its foreign debt has climbed to around one hundred forty billion dollars now that's nearly eighty percent of ukraine's gross domestic product and with the country being torn apart by those defining and supporting the new leadership the economic situation is only getting worse. representatives of the new ukrainian government
4:24 pm
are already threatening to quite literally go nuclear a deputy from these for border party warns that kiev could go back on its own constitution and restock its nuclear arsenals within six months and started checking 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 provoke it if statements coming out of key have one member of the ukrainian parliaments ultranationalists aboard a party warns that a fresh a dozen 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
4:25 pm
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 u.s. the money that we can't use to be for 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. new york so a reminder of breaking news russia's upper house of parliament has voted unanimously to approve the use of military forces in ukraine until the situation there stabilizes president putin had also said it is to support the movement all
4:26 pm
this comes as protests against the interim government continue to multiply across the country in the east up to ten thousand rallied in dinette calling the current authorities in kiev in a just a minute and mirroring the sentiment in crimea activists now want a referendum on the future of the units region while a call called local self-defense forces broke through cordons to take back a local government building from radicals. but of course we'll bring you more on those developing on those developments there in ukraine interest of a half an hour from now in the meantime breaking the set on the british spying program that attempt to millions of people's can stay with this.
4:27 pm
minnesota vikings football player jared allen like 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 allan 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 is 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
4:28 pm
back home but it shows that a wounded veteran with a place to live as a much better chance at a good life and the fewer vets that are living under a bridge the better society will be but that's just my opinion. live. live live live live. live . live. talk rules in effect that means you can jump in anytime you want to live.
4:29 pm
the the the. the. the friday everyone i'm out here martin and this is breaking the set well i've got a great show for you guys today and then they'll be talking about an f.b.i. allocatable shining a light on all things outer space and featuring a very special musical performance you won't want to miss so sit back relax and let's try to set. the peaceably. a little very hard to take a. look. at how to act with that perfect there are those. that believe.
4:30 pm
that. in a post nine eleven world the method of f.b.i. entrapment to create and foiled 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 in their original intent was for the bomb to
4:31 pm
actually knock down both towers but the explosives worked. it's 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. so is it really true that nobody knew what was coming back in one thousand nine hundred three well not according to him and f.b.i. informant that had penetrated the inner circle of the group planning the bombing after the attack happens along 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
4:32 pm
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 to discuss 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 one recorded many of his conversations with his handlers and once a lamb 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
4:33 pm
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 n.b.c. news has learned exclusively it 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 this mall 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 a failure of imagination remember this. i don't think anybody could have
4:34 pm
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 moles need to be exposed in order for us to stop lying to ourselves.
4:35 pm
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 again people are going to make fun of us for doing it but i don't care many you know talk about how nasa found this was from this new technique called verification by
4:36 pm
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 and just a quarter of the night sky they're actually taking what statistically more probable to have one or two more printed 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 for for life to exist that could very well be the possibility and these new worlds
4:37 pm
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 isn't often 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
4:38 pm
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 they're funding this by way of 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 the history of. 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 deconstruct fall apart and we can all watch them here on earth i mean they know that they are never coming back next for good t.v. they're picking people that are willing to do this and 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 a great we can all watch it unfold walking it just seems like
4:39 pm
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 seemed 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. there isn't space isn't as many of these create so good. so this thing would be tethered it's 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 is going to be done all we need is cooperation from from countries we need more investment and research into nano to begin micro fibers and and this could very well be possible in the next we could be like george clooney and gravity
4:40 pm
and see the earth from the star trek people keep calling the world we know. this is the thing that ok and we have about a minute let's talk about asteroids and when 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 be 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 beings. 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 the earth killing asteroids but this by far is the most innovative approach. that
4:41 pm
i've seen personally and 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 is amazing and yeah i guess i don't know it just sounds really think this is the laser beams up laser beams on the sharks and you know asteroids i mean yeah we don't we don't want you to think about this because this is what come up the dinosaurs guys are going to kind of put our heads together and figure out how we can do you know that giant asteroid that hit and hit the moon also because they have that on video that was those pretty amazing as well what i'm worried about is this being used for military and for the al gore wrong for some who are now this is a good idea thanks so much manny appreciate it. governor if you guys on future performance by none other than my own brother say to.
4:42 pm
you is the easiest place for billionaires and dictators to modern money why because it's the only country in the world you can have an anonymous corporations a lot of americans create entities overseas and then those entities create anonymous corporations in america so they launder their money in america general electric they made billions of dollars in revenues they pay less than twenty million dollars in taxes last year because of massive fraud because america is the easiest place to commit mass excel. this is just a mental. children of the industrial revolution we can please but nobody seems to be running out of steam as well as the oil cold can. the supply of this energy crisis suggests that we have obama is wise and more such supply just futuristic to . the next life like super sized to.

4:49 pm
children. killed children we killed children children . 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 the stuff 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
4:50 pm
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 and timid in 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
4:51 pm
protestants and christians who are 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 for the masonic control benjamin franklin own 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.
4:52 pm
is one giant masonic symbol and there's the parliament ironically that friend yeah let's put it like tronic music why do you think more electronic musicians aren't more politically inclined don't have more of an eat those inside and outside of their music. that's an extremely good question it's it's becoming increasingly rare to find you 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 scape ism and there isn't anything fundamentally wrong with the scape is but. you know sort of the roots of the electronic music that i that i do now you know revolves around around rave culture and even rave culture as a skate business and party oriented as it was sort of when originally started it had sort of the inherent built in eat those of you know f. the police f.
4:53 pm
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 in 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. i mean 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
4:54 pm
a trend and nowadays in two thousand and fourteen trends musical trends are born and die within like six months time spans so you know you can either ride these waves of trends or you can just sort of just release the music that you love and that you you know you want to get out there and that's kind of you know that's been my focus you can't do it thinking that you're going to make money and have it be your sole source of income because it's not the way it works anymore if you want to really stay true to your artistic vision do you have advice for artists who want to get their music out there who are really passionate about music but don't want to go on a label and don't want to go that route well i mean i think it's still a good route to you know send demos to labels if you're in any musician and stuff like that but you can't rely on it solely because there are so many avenues now on the internet to directly sell your music to people you know with websites like bandcamp i recommend any independent musician going on there and if you're still working on your demos and you don't know how good they are go on music forums where
4:55 pm
you can get critiques and feedback on sort of your working you know song you know demos and stuff. but the problem i see now is that even like indie musical outlets like things like pitchfork or sort of the other big digital you know like online like you know digital only music press they sort of emulate this corporate model of of payola sherene and. it's actually really hard to tell these days who is sort of following this payola model and who is and so i would suggest to musicians out there to actually seek out truly independent you know blogs press anything they can find college radio is still a great way to get independent music out you don't need to have a marketing package you know for them to play your music so i think it's it's best to try to avoid in navigate around sort of the corporate culture that is sort of permeated into
4:56 pm
a lot of quote unquote underground culture right now like even red bull owns an electronic music academy that is like taken seriously some of it's like it's an energy drink i don't know. and it's so fickle too and you've actually played your music a lot on on community based radio pacific all across the country which is another good route i mean you play a ton of shows in the bay area where you live how can people find out more about you in your music robbie well. i used to run a venue no clint but i don't currently i'm still playing shows occasionally cad about it dot org is a group of friends of mine who do underground music collective out in oakland. there are a lot of shows and also if you want to check out my music go to fluorescent dash. bandcamp dot com and record label records are or are going to think you so much robbie for us and graeme my brother also have you on men. that's our show you guys join me again next week when i break the set all over again.

breaking news on our team russia's parliament approved the use of military forces in the ukraine following a request by president putin and an appeal for help from authorities in crimea. and across the eastern ukraine thousands rally in a dozen cities against the current government in kiev shouting pro russian slogans in value to protect their land from nationalist groups. plus the leader of a ukrainian far right group called on international terrorists doku umarov a man responsible for terror attacks across russia to step up attacks against moscow. and russia's federation council wants to recall its ambassador to the u.s. after threatening words from president obama. live
5:01 pm
from our studio center in moscow this is our two international with you twenty four hours a day. we start with breaking news russia's upper house of parliament has voted unanimously to approve the deployment of armed forces in ukraine until the situation stabilizes there president putin had asked the senators to support the move. because of the extraordinary situation in ukraine which represents a threat to the lives of russian citizens our compatriots the contingent of russian armed forces located in the autonomous republic of crimea according to an international treaty stated in the constitution of the russian federation i asked the upper house of parliament for permission to use armed forces new crane until the situation there is stabilized artie's it has been following moscow's reaction
5:02 pm
to the events in crimea and the decision to the russian parliament being made with the lightning speed at least what it seems like however it doesn't mean that we should jump the gun and literally and figuratively speaking because the final decision rests with the president president putin who has to say yes or no whether to deploy troops on the ground in ukraine and he hasn't done so yet that point has been emphasized by his spokesman of but he does have the permission to do it just in case the reason for perhaps a need for this permission from the federal council is the fact that russia is precious officials including of course the president and the both houses of the russian parliament are incredibly concerned with the situation surrounding the radical extremist groups. particularly of the national a person of nationalistic perseveration who are openly and who are permeating. the areas branches of the ukrainian government and are making themselves quite
5:03 pm
clearly present in a lot of places in ukraine where a lot of russians actually do reside and it's protection of russian citizens and russian nationals in ukraine particularly in the east of the country and in the terms republic of crimea that is the reason for the decisions made by the federation council and of course for the appeal and actions of the russian president. earlier the authorities in ukraine southern republic of crimea asked the russian president for help following an attempt to capture key administrative buildings by armed men sent by the new authorities in kiev r.t. here corpus cannot bring the details overnight groups of armed men sent from kiev tried storming in and capturing several local government buildings here firing weapons and using sound the so-called self-defense squads were able to repel these attacks but perhaps this was the turning point after wish the crimean prime minister announced that he's temporarily taking over the control of all the crimean
5:04 pm
security services including the police the military the navy and border guards and he also asked russia for assistance to help protect the local population from any further a possible threats coming from kiev where he said power was hijacked by extremists as a result of a cool now another thing which the local authorities did today was they changed the debate of the referendum aimed at deciding whether or not the crimea should have more independence from kiev the dateless change from a to march so it should be held in the very near is to future just to explain the east and the southeast of ukraine where we are now a region is heavily populated by ethnic russians around ninety percent of people leaving living in these regions they consider russian as their native language this is according to official statistics and the general understanding here is that many of the new laws passed by the new afterwards there and give are and against russians. jaimie is
5:05 pm
a pill for russia's help and it staunch opposition to the current authorities in kiev is rooted in the region's complicated history crimea was a long part of russia and in the u.s.s.r. it belonged to the russian soviet republic until nine hundred fifty four that's when the soviet leadership decided to hand it over to crank back then of course no one thought the u.s.s.r. would break up like it did in one thousand nine hundred one and crimea was left as part of independent ukraine but the majority of people living there continue to associate themselves with russia as you can see more than half of the population of the peninsula are ethnic russians ukrainians and crimean taught char's are a minority in the republic now even more people ninety seven percent in fact of the whole population in crimea use the russian language in their daily life and work so when the new authorities in kiev put forward a language bill that revoked the rights of native russian speakers it sparked protests and calls for greater independence from the ukrainian capital now we asked political analyst alexander puppet show about russia's influence on what is
5:06 pm
happening in ukraine and he told us moscow has been serving as a stabilizing force since the start of the turmoil. i think russia at each point of this crisis is three months back has really been destabilizing force here i mean they let's remember they they offered a lifesaver to ukraine back in december fifteen billion dollars and the president who went. to the rejected it so russia is doing the next step but this is just a preparation for the next step and they keep them for sizing that they're waiting for a legitimate government to be in place once again in kiev and i think russia's not being allowed itself to be provoked right now but it's taking the minimum necessary to protect its own people and it's all pretty interesting. that's africa and president of ukraine alexander turchynov well viewed by moscow as a war criminal if military force is used in the southeast again this statement was
5:07 pm
made by the head of the lower house of the russian parliament in the southeast areas of ukraine thousands have taken to the streets to protest against the current authorities in kiev artist maria from has more. what happened in kiev has shaken not only crimea this very special area but the entire eastern and southern ukraine this vast area traditionally russia leaning ten large regions home to more than half of the country's population and ukraine's industrial center never recognized the country's new authorities that took power they say following and coup and this is why we see thousands of people both officials and ordinary residents men women entire families and at least ten major cities all over the area here protesting against the country's new monsters and against what they say could threaten their peaceful future they see the afraid of radical aliments that played an important role in the coup in kiev and they are worried that they could come to their regions
5:08 pm
bringing violence with them and this is something of course they don't want and in fear of the repetition of the deadly events in the capital thousands took to the streets protesting and demonstrating and calling on russia to help in hardock of the city known as the capital of the eastern ukraine the largest cities of these area pro russian protesters managed to finally enter the government building that was captured by so-called chromite don demonstrators for almost a week and raise a russian flag and there was a competition by clashes and shootings and we're hearing that at least one hundred people were injured and this number is rising in another city of donetsk thousands again are on the streets shouting pro russia slogans and we are hearing that local authorities there claim that they would not obey kiev and they voted today to have
5:09 pm
a referendum over the region's taters while the majority of the population in east and south of ukraine say that decisions and laws taken by the country's new sure she's are illegal. earlier we spoke to andres who do keys the organizer of the rally in this city. in eastern ukraine he explained what drew people to the streets in the first place and why they want protection from russia and how the people who come together they. never take their way. claiming the power or cultural differences in this country generally imply that we leave. at least. so governments or at least some protection and this is. the police all around the country they get them they get them and the police now is just. has just lost its moral
5:10 pm
and the only way for us to win protection and we have gathered today all around at least in the great. number of. these groups these liberals can go to the election but first we we need to have the orderly store if we need to be or there is this where we think our presence can kill us by the crimean authorities who are asking moscow for help the leader of ukraine's far right group the right sector reach out to the chechen terrorist doku umarov they urged him to support ukraine and step up the fight against russia doku umarov is the islamist leader of the chechen extremist movement and an international terrorist russia's equivalent of bin laden he is responsible for deadly terrorist attacks across russia that have taken the lives of dozens of civilians including
5:11 pm
bombings on the moscow metro and at domodedovo international airport who has also encouraged the separatist movement in chechnya by declaring it an islamic state he is currently wanted in russia on charges of kidnapping murder and treason. russia's foreign ministry responded to the appeal to the chechen militant by pointing out that many of the ukrainian groups backed by the west are in fact radicals from or on best let's cross live to washington our washington based political analyst and. mr craig thank you so much for joining us on this on the subject to how dangerous is it and your opinion to bring an internationally wanted terrorists into the volatile situation in ukraine i think it's very dangerous the reason is. you're introducing fear into the equation in a way that is almost uncontrollable you're also not you but.
5:12 pm
those forces that are doing this are also in or do saying of a factor of stupidity so when you have danger fear and stupidity all in this kind of volatile mix who knows what can happen well yeah speaking about the support of a terrorist it doesn't seem to be a smart political or diplomatic move so do some groups in ukraine do you think actually want to escalate this into a war well yes yes i don't think they're the one jews normally see on t.v. or in other diplomatic circles but. in the any kind of who are actions like this you have to have people underneath who are almost uncontrollable so there are the foot soldiers who implements the nice
5:13 pm
ideas of the more presentable leaders but they are by nature. very difficult to control they have their own agenda and in some ways this is useful that it pops up so everyone can see it. well speaking of those leaders what does this tell you about some of the anti-gun equivocate forces that they would wish to ally themselves with a militant well again it illustrates a longer pattern that i think we all need to focus on which is they need people like this to implement what they're doing i think that they would not want it to be visible like this because it shows their fingerprints on problems but it's an inevitable part of what's
5:14 pm
needed to or what's what's involved when you overthrow a government. looking at some of the rhetoric we've we've seen coming out of the new administration and have first wanting to create a nuclear arsenal now beth how much of this is rhetoric and how much is a realistic threat. well i think there's lots of very serious threats going on here. and i guess the question as to who won is obviously people in russia and moscow have reason to be concerned if a terrorist is encouraged to undertake more violent acts but for the larger world both in the ukraine and and elsewhere. it's. it's very dangerous when you have
5:15 pm
mutual escalation. threat or threat to revive that but you go back and forth and what people may plan as. you know a coup or revolution or democracy can get out of control and we've seen in places like afghanistan iraq syria. libya that concept set at the beginning seem. you know almost start a. positive in terms of the rhetoric. have turned into total. human tragedies on unbelievable scale because these things can't be easily controlled. average andrew craig political analyst thank you very much for joining
5:16 pm
us stay with us as our team continues to look at the turmoil in ukraine after a short break. blood investigation the fishing industry reveals the hidden in troubled waters a fish fun day you have the pond to me because. i saw it spread all over norway is the most toxic food you have and who will bring profit defeats officials inquiry furthermore health restriction. really know what's inside that. detail.

secret laboratory in the caribbean was able to build its most sophisticated robot which on fortunately doesn't give a darn about anything too much mission to teach creation why it should care about humans and worry that this is why you should care watch only on the r g dot com. welcome back you're watching our two international live from moscow to our breaking news now russia's upper house of parliament has voted unanimously to allow the deployment of military forces in ukraine and the situation stabilizes there let's listen to the statement that was made yes by the of having considered the appeal of the president of the russian federation and in the interests of the safety of the lives of citizens from the russian federation our compatriots and the personnel of the russian military contingent located in accordance with an international
5:18 pm
agreement on the territory of ukraine in the its almost republic of crimea the federation council decides first to give consent to the president of the russian federation to use the armed forces of the russian federation on the territory of ukraine for normalization of the political situation in that country second this resolution shall take effect from the date of its adoption. earlier president putin had asked the senators to support the move following an appeal for help from the authorities in crimea an autonomous republic in the south of ukraine that does not recognize the country's new leadership the president's spokesman has however stressed that the approval does not necessarily mean it will be implemented. the federation council also wants russia to recall its ambassador to the united states because of president obama's aggressive rhetoric russia also urged the international community to put pressure on radical groups in ukraine at a meeting of the united nations security council artie's granted to khan joins us
5:19 pm
live with the latest on that's going to thanks for joining us now tell us what went on in this meeting with the security council well and see what moscow brings to say you when is the message to those who through force took power in kiev should not count on using force against people in crimea and other parts of ukraine that had no say in the power grab my don so russia's envoy to the u.n. quoted the russian president who said that a limited condition contingent of russian troops would be there would be in ukraine until the situation stabilizes there president putin also told the u.n. if key if uses force against the russian speaking population of ukraine russia and i quote here will take measures within the boundaries of international law when the u.s. envoy spoke. when the u.s. envoy to the u.n.
5:20 pm
spoke we heard the same from the u.k. representatives they said question must respect ukraine's territorial integrity and its seventy and also from the u.s. representative we heard that the u.s. calls for the u.n. to send a mission to crimea and it says moscow shooting gauge directly with the ukrainian government there is a problem here because in moscow's view it is not a legitimate government it does not represent the cranium people it has not been elected by the ukrainian people and russia calls for the west to influence to put influence on key of to rein in what investors working called radicals there. i have a very anti russian sentiments this was a very tense session at the u.n. russian ambassador accused the west of wretched ing up tensions in ukraine he said that everything could have been done peacefully including the signing of the association agreement with the e.u. and the transition of power and rushed out call so to go back to the agreement of
5:21 pm
february twenty first between the ukraine government and some opposition leaders the conditions of which have been violated by the ukrainian opposition calls for the creation of a unity government in ukraine that would be inclusive and that would do not trample on the interests. of a big part of ukraine that had no say in the power grab but my down there are russian lawmakers right now wanting to recall moscow's ambassador to the u.s. tell us a little bit about that. this is clearly a new low in u.s. rusher relations and as we understand moscow has not yet decided to actually recall the russian ambassador to the u.s. but the russian federation council which is the russian senate and also now we hear that the lower house of the russian parliament russian duma they are preparing to
5:22 pm
address president putin with such a proposal but they they they all talk about. recall speech does not mean a break up of diplomatic relations by no means whether or not the president president putin will go through with this is really not clear at the moment and there has been no u.s. reaction to this specific news about the possibility of russia recalling its ambassador garnets yukon from washington thank you very much for that. ukraine's interim authorities have ordered the mobilization of the country's armed forces in response to the potential deployment of russian troops in crimea political commentator alexander neck rosoff says it appears the interim government in kiev is already panicking ever since they seized power in key i think they were getting desperate by the day because they suddenly realized that they're not getting that money which they hope to get that once having lost the
5:23 pm
money coming from russia and this desperation showed in the fact that they repeated all those warnings about the russian invasion the russian aggression and so on and so on and now we see them desperate to nuff to take also you know could make all sorts of problems provocative statements and basically imply that the danger a war is rising now the reason they do that is because there they will this they need the money desperately and the west is not cutting to give them that money so we will hear all sorts of things coming from key from the new interim players and i think that the west itself i think badly misjudged the reaction of russia to the events there in the ukraine and i think it played the misjudged the reaction of people in crimea in in the east of the country as well we're getting reports of thousands of ukrainians who want to flee the country and are now applying for asylum in russia earlier medina explained why some have been left feeling
5:24 pm
a deep sense of insecurity. people in ukraine are very worried of course they're worried as fear is growing in ukraine as there's absolutely no clarity of what is happening in the country was going to happen in the near future and many people in ukraine mostly in south and eastern parts are not at all accepting the new leadership as legitimate they are feeling very insecure because of that with their rights to wing hardliners just putting themselves at the court of the upheaval and seeking to control the new government main ear right now rushing to banks trying to withdraw cash from their bank accounts from a.t.m.'s and that's on top of that that led to the national bank of ukraine entry you stay the temporary limits russia's migration service just said that the number of asylum applications received from ukraine has increased significantly even numbers such as one hundred forty thousand
5:25 pm
asylum applications have been two weeks alarming figures indeed and these figures even increase in the nearest future as the situation just ask just getting out of control ukraine's now balancing on the verge of default the country's finance ministry claims bankruptcy is looming it's estimated more than thirty five billion dollars in aid will be needed by the end of twenty fifteen meanwhile its foreign debt is come to run one hundred forty billion and that's nearly eighty percent of ukraine's gross domestic product and with the country being torn apart by those the flying and supporting the new leadership the economy the economic situation is only getting worse. a reminder of our breaking news now russia's upper house of parliament has voted unanimously to approve the use of military forces in ukraine into the situation there stabilizes president putin has asked the senators to support the move this comes as protests against the interim
5:26 pm
government continue to multiply across ukraine in the east of the country up to ten thousand rallied in donetsk calling the current authorities in kiev illegitimate and mirroring the sentiment in crimea activists now want a referendum on the future of the donetsk region while in kharkov local self-defense forces broke through cordons to take back a local government building from radicals. now up next a look at surviving drug addiction and mental illness in california but for those watching us in the u.k. it's been with us. 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
5:27 pm
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 i checked thoroughly and i would even call them r. rated the local 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 can stand up to the man what's stopping you but that's just my opinion.
5:28 pm
with the economic ups and downs in the final month they. sang night and the rest because i think he needs to be a prickly. in response to the intense law enforcement and skip around some local residents have made it their job to watch the police. my mother in law father both came to california in one nine hundred fifty six and they both got a job downtown l.a. work in a bullock's department store on seventh and broadway. my father he'd been living downtown ever since. but my mother she lived out in the projects the bad part of it was that i ended up hanging out in my mother's old neighborhood where i ended up joining the games and so for near i got into my diction my addiction landed me in

5:31 pm
many people. is really somebody who grew up here and i'm now sperms are always. clearly trying to from the rights of other folks here. did nine years and stay pain six of those years were in solitary confinement. is the individual that if you listen to the policymakers if you listen to people with money and wealth and power there's no rehabilitating. you know he's a career criminal. i guess you would have said the same thing about malcolm malcolm x. he was a career criminal and now he's on a postage stamp. basically. and even. though i don't. look you. a smile. i saw
5:32 pm
a big picture came from saul was going on now and that's what really helped me open my eyes is the far good every post my field today the reason why i get up and go do what i do every day you know when i go work for you but oh yeah that's me. as first responders to emergency calls to skid row fire station. to north america. back in the mid seventy's the city made a policy that skid row would be a contained preserved area much like an indian reservation or a ghetto where the unwashed wanted would be contained literally some of the. for humanitarian reasons that it would be easier to. keep people off from. the redevelopment that was there. one of the other important
5:33 pm
things to understand about skid row is that it's not primarily a homeless population and people tend to think it is and it's really critical people understand that because if you think of skid row is primarily a homeless population that's one set of issues with one set of solutions then you build large shelters and if you do it the way some people at city hall would like and you build them out in the desert that's not what's skid row is skid row is principally endangered low income residential community in the fifty blocks of skid row there are sixty five what we call single room occupancy housing without this housing people and they would have nowhere to go who in the private or the public sector build housing for a single adult whose total income is a two hundred twenty three dollars check. the majority of people in this community . service are social security by g.r. and so. we call this community a whole we don't use what we can afford. you know we have to go to a community redevelopment agency moratoriums. lower income
5:34 pm
housing units into condos in los. we lost a thousand units and about three or four year period from about two thousand to two thousand and four. it took the city a long time to respond with a moratorium on losing that housing. which new people who come there and they have higher income. and it economically the older people were forced to leave. you know all these uptown or so want to come and have their sort of disneyland manhattan experience they have other options to other communities they can go to but the poor skid row really have no other housing anywhere at all almost any one would say if you've got to be crazy why would you save skid row what is the possible value of saving a skid row if you think about it by if thousands of people on main street lose their house and that's thousands of people for whom the city will have to build a massive and costly shelter system and makes far more sense to preserve the
5:35 pm
housing the poor live in and let the poor continue to pay their own brand so makes good economic sense not just good social and moral sense for the city to in fact preserve the housing that's in the skid row area. there are a lot of empty lost in the area the city could convert that into housing for me under. sixteen to twenty four thousand dollars a year for someone. supportive housing and housing with the services that help them stay in that house or the forty percent on your return trip. to anywhere from forty four to one hundred thousand dollars a year people through the emergency room records are stored. this is the famous security issue three hundred three is fine it's no. mean no. good guy up in the tree line even having to get there they are
5:36 pm

six million dollars in its first year alone. please say for cities initiative that was launched i'm so tempted two thousand and six a bill on the drawing board since two thousand and two it was originally called the whole most reduction strategy it was launched with a vengeance on september of two thousand and six and there was an effort there was really targeted by where there were girls for a chief bratton. as a comprehensive approach to skid row. there were going to be two problems there was going to be the serious crackdown on what was called serious crime and skid row and then there was to be a big expansion of services. well one of those things happened and the other one didn't. really put zero dollars him to the services side to come in so hard with the enforcement without having the the enhancement pace getting the services that

5:40 pm
he's always allowed the fascist to take over his city administration the manhattan institute and as far as i'm concerned up from my perspective chief bratton runs this damn city and i don't know why we have a mayor. rule of new schools here. to see. while you like me and said this was the last night maybe three fill. police chief william bratton made his name cleaning up new york city with the controversial broken windows theory of crime wave action. say for cities helped him implement that same policy in his hometown. the same tactics that was joe's and broken windows theory in new york right where they say concept by you the same way judge abide new york in the same way you plan on jennifer. california but that's when it was a really bad devastating four hours of the people here especially people with

6:00 pm
breaking news on argentine russia's parliament approves of the use of military forces in ukraine following a request by president putin and an appeal for help from authorities in crimea. and across the east of ukraine thousands rally in a dozen cities against the current government in kiev shouting pro russian absorbent and valuing to protect their land from nationalist groups. plus the leader of a ukrainian far right group called the international terrorists so cool model the man behind multiple terror attacks across russia to join forces and step up attacks against moscow. and russia's federation council wants to recall its ambassador to the u.s. after threatening words from president obama.
6:01 pm
live from our studio center in moscow this is r.t. international working twenty four hours a day. we start with breaking news russia's upper house of parliament has voted unanimously to approve the deployment of armed forces in ukraine until the situation there stabilizes president putin has asked the senators to support the move because of the extraordinary situation ukraine which represents a threat to the laws of russian citizens compatriots and the contingent of russian armed forces located in the autonomous republic of crimea according to an international treaty stated in the constitution of the russian federation i asked the upper house of parliament for permission to use armed forces new crane until the situation there is stabilized archies arena has been following moscow's
6:02 pm
reaction to the events in crimea and the decisions of the russian parliament. being made with the lightning speed at least what it seems like however it doesn't mean that we should jump the gun and literally and figuratively speaking because the final decision rests with the president to put in who has to say yes or no whether to deploy troops on the ground in ukraine and he hasn't done so yet that point has been emphasized by his spokesman. but he does have the permission to do it just in case the reason for perhaps a need for this permission from the federal council is the fact that russia is a precious officials including of course the president and the both houses of the russian parliament are incredibly concerned with the situation surrounding the radical extremist groups. particularly of the national a person of nationalistic perseveration who are openly risa phobic and who are permeating. the areas branches of the ukrainian government and are making themselves quite clearly present in a lot of places in ukraine where
6:03 pm
a lot of russians actually do reside and it's protection of russian citizens and russian nationals in ukraine particularly in the east of the country and in the terms republic of crimea that is the reason for the decisions made by the federation council and of course for the appeal and actions off the russian president. earlier the authorities in ukraine southern republic of crimea asked the russian president for help following an attempt to capture key administrative buildings by armed men sent by the new authority think you are to corpus cannot bring for details overnight group so formed men sent from kiev tried storming in and capturing several local government buildings here firing weapons and using sound the so-called self-defense squads were able to repel these attacks but perhaps this was the turning point after which the crimean prime minister announced that he's temporarily taking over the control of all the crimean security services
6:04 pm
including the police the military the navy and border guards and he also asked russia for assistance to help protect the local population from any further of possible threats coming from kiev where he said power it was hijacked by extremists as a result of a cool now another thing which the local authorities did today was they changed the date of the referendum aimed at deciding whether or not the crimea should have more independence from kiev the date was so changed from may to march so it should be held in the very near is to future just to explain the east and the southeast of ukraine where we are now our region is heavily populated by ethnic russians around ninety percent of people leaving living in these regions they consider russian as their native language this is according to official statistics and the general understanding here is that many of the new laws passed by the new afterwards there in kiev are aimed against russians. crimea is a pill for russia's help and its stance opposition to the current authorities in
6:05 pm
kiev is rooted in the region's complicated history that crimea was a long time a part of russia and in the u.s.s.r. it belonged to the russian soviet republic until nine hundred fifty four that's when the soviet leadership decided to hand it over to ukraine back then of course no one thought the u.s.s.r. would break up like it did in one thousand nine hundred one the crimea was left as part of independent ukraine but the majority of people living there continue to associate themselves with russia as you can see more than half of the population of the peninsula are ethnic russians ukrainians and crimean tartars are a minority in the republic now even more people ninety seven percent of the whole population in crimea use the russian language in their daily life and work so when the new authorities in kiev put forward a language bill that revoked the rights of native russian speakers it sparked protests and calls for greater independence from the ukrainian capital we asked political analyst alexander pavlicek about russia's influence on what's happening in ukraine he told us moscow has been working to stop the situation from spinning
6:06 pm
out of control. i think russia at each point of this crisis is three months back has really been destabilizing force here i mean they let's remember they they offered a lifesaver to ukraine back in december fifteen billion dollars and the president who. we rejected it so russia is doing the next step but this is just a preparation for the next step and they keep them for sizing that they're waiting for a legitimate government to be in place once again in kiev and i think russia's not being allowed itself to be provoked right now but is taking the minimum necessary to protect its own people and its own treaty interests. they president of ukraine alexander took off how was appointed by the parliament he will be viewed by moscow as a war criminal of military forces used in the southeast of the country the statement
6:07 pm
was made by the head of the lower house of the russian parliament and those southeast areas of ukraine thousands have taken to the streets to protest against the current authorities in kiev artie's maria for national has more. what happened in kiev has shaken not only crimea this very special area but the entire eastern and southern ukraine this vast area traditionally russia leaning ten large regions home to more than half of the country's population and ukraine's industrial center never recognized the country's new authorities that took power they say following and coup and this is why we see thousands of people both officials and ordinary residents men women entire families and at least ten major cities all over the area here protesting against the country's new monsters and against what they say could threaten their peaceful future they see the afraid of radical aliments that played an important role in the coup in kiev and they are worried that they could come to
6:08 pm
their regions bringing violence with them and this is something of course they don't want and in fear of the repetition of the deadly events in the capital thousands took to the streets protesting and demonstrating and calling on russia to help in hardock of the city known as the capital of the eastern ukraine the largest city of these area pro russian for testers managed to finally enter the government building that was captured by so-called pro my don demonstrators for almost a week and raise a russian flag and there was a competition by clashes and shootings and we're hearing that at least one hundred people were injured and this number is rising in another city of donetsk thousands again are on the streets shouting pro russia slogans and we are hearing that local authorities there claim that they would not obey kiev and they voted today to have
6:09 pm
a referendum over the region as well the majority of the population in east and south of ukraine say that decisions and laws taken by the country's new authorities are illegal. earlier we spoke to andre said to me the organizer of the rally in this city of today pro petrowski he in eastern ukraine he explained what drew people to the streets in the first place and why they want protection from russia and thousand people who come together they. never take their way. to claim the power or cultural differences in this country generally imply that we need. at least. so governments or at least some protection and that's this. the police all around the country they get them they kill them and the police now is just. has just lost its moral
6:10 pm
only way for us when protection and we have gathered today all around the eastern ukraine number numerously. these groups and these are mr liberals can go to the election but first we we need to have the ordinary store before the election we need to have the or there is still a. the crimean authorities were asking moscow for help the leader of ukraine's far right group the right sector reached out to the chechen terrorist doku umarov they urged him to support ukraine and step up the fight against russia doku umarov is the islamist leader of the chechen extremist movement an international terrorist russia's equivalent of osama bin laden he is responsible for deadly terrorist attacks across russia that have taken the lives of dozens of civilians including bombings on the moscow metro and it domodedovo international airport doku has also
6:11 pm
encouraged the separatist movement in chechnya by declaring it an islamist state he is currently wanted in russia on charges of kidnapping murder and treason. russia's foreign ministry responded to the appeal to the chechen militant by pointing out that many of the groups backed by the west are in fact radicals mark sloboda from moscow state university told my colleague bill daughter earlier that this is a clear threat to russia's national security. this is an international jihad a movement whose stated game goal is to create an islamic caliphate not just in in chechnya but across all of southern russia where there is a muslim population and this is an international effort he has been had troops islamic jihadists fighting in syria fighting in afghanistan so this is an international jihad is threat not simply a national separatist movement as it might perhaps have been some time in the
6:12 pm
ninety's. it's really no surprise that these. right sector. extreme western ukrainian alter nationalists have made this appeal to mars they have discussed this online before in fact during the chechen wars in the one nine hundred ninety s. several of their leaders who are now. in control of kiev. the chechens against the russians and quite loudly boast about how many russian tanks or how many troops they killed so this is actually an. alliance of devils if you will that we have seen before and so it's really no surprise that in this situation that dmitri euro show again who is not only the right sector leader and in control of the paramilitaries that are basically in control of the streets of
6:13 pm
kiev at this moment but now he has yes been given a position on the. security and defense council as has the deputy within this regime and russia can only regard this as a national security threat stay with us as our take continues to look at the turmoil in your crane after a short break. this is the easiest place for billionaires and dictators to launder money why because it's the only country in the world economic for breasts a lot of americans create overseas and then those sixty's create anonymous corporations in america so 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 mass.
6:14 pm
put on your. face like you. should have you with us here on t.v. today i'm sure. welcome back you're watching our two international live from moscow our breaking news now russia's upper house of parliament has voted unanimously to allow the deployment of military forces in ukraine until the situation there stabilizes let's listen to the statement that was made. that's why the of having considered the
6:15 pm
appeal of the president of the russian federation and in the interests of the safety of the lives of citizens from the russian federation our compatriots in the personnel of the russian military contingent located in accordance with an international agreement on the territory of ukraine in the its almost republic of crimea the federation council decides first to give consent to the president of the russian federation to use the armed forces of the russian federation on the territory of ukraine for normalization of the political situation in that country second this resolution shall take effect from the date of its adoption. earlier president putin asked the senators who support the move following an appeal for help from authorities in crimea and antonymous republic in the south of ukraine that does not recognize the country's new leadership the president's spokesman has however stressed that the approval to not necessarily mean it will be implemented
6:16 pm
ukraine's interim authorities have ordered the mobilization of the country's armed forces in response to potential deployment of russian troops in crimea now political commentator alexander across all says it appears the interim government in kiev is already panicking. ever since they seized power in key of i think they were getting desperate by the day because they suddenly realize that they're not getting that money which they hope they have to get that once having lost the money coming from russia and this desperation showed in the fact that they repeat that all those warnings about the russian invasion the russian aggression and so on and so on and now we see them desperately enough to take also you know could make all sorts of problems provocative statements and basically imply that the danger a war is rising now the reason they do that is because there they will this they need the money desperately and the west is not cutting to give them that money so
6:17 pm
we will hear all sorts of things coming from key from the new interim players and i think that the west itself i think badly misjudged the reaction of russia to the events there in the ukraine and i think it played the misjudged the reaction of people in crimea in in the east of the country as well. the federation council also wants russia to recall a time bassett are from the u.s. because of president obama's aggressive rhetoric russia also urge the international community to put pressure on radical groups in ukraine at a meeting of the united nations security council for more on that benefit to conjoin just live with the latest guy and what has been said at the security council meeting. well moscow brings to the u.n. is the message that those who through force took power in kiev should not count on using force against people in crimea and other parts of ukraine that had no say in
6:18 pm
the power grabs at my gun the russian envoy to the u.n. calling kiev and those who have influence on t. have to bring the situation in the country on a political as he said on a constitutional track russia urges everyone to go back to the room and from february twenty first between the ukrainian government and some of the opposition leaders there that would lead to elections that would need to unity government which would be inclusive and that would not trample on the interests of a big part of ukraine that had no say in the power grab at my done in the meantime russia calls for decision makers in kiev and in the west to rein in the as the investor said the ready calls in ukraine who have very anti washington sentiment who present danger to russian speaking population in ukraine when the u.s. envoy to the u.n. spoke well we heard the same from the u.k. representative they said russia must respect ukraine's territorial integrity and
6:19 pm
it's also the u.s. calls for the u. when to send a mission to crimea and also washington says moscow should engage directly with the ukrainian government now there's a problem here because moscow does not recognize the so-called government and now in kiev and says if kiev decides to use force against the russian speaking population in ukraine it will take measures to protect them. and we've heard russian lawmakers express a desire to recall moscow's ambassador to the u.s. can you tell us more about that. yes lindsey earlier the russian parliament suggested that president putin recall the russian ambassador to the u.s. for consultations we don't know whether or not the russian president will go through with such a proposal or we do know that russian president had a long conversation with the with president obama this saturday following that conversation the white house issued
6:20 pm
a statement that. condemns that which says that the u.s. condemns russia's military intervention which accuses russia of breaking international law and also says that the u.s. will suspend upcoming participation in preparatory meetings for the g. eight. right artie's the next you can live in washington for us thank you very much we're getting reports of thousands of ukrainians who want to flee the country and are now applying for asylum in russia earlier medina caution about explained why some have been left feeling a deep sense of insecurity. people in ukraine are very war of course there are worries as fear is growing in ukraine as there is absolutely no clarity of what is happening in the country was going to happen in the near future and many people in ukraine mostly in south and eastern parts are not at all accepting the new
6:21 pm
leadership as legitimate they are feeling very insecure because of that with the right to wing hardliners just putting themselves at the core of the upheaval and seeking to control the new government mania right now rushing to banks trying to withdraw cash from their bank accounts from a.t.m. and that's on top of that that led to the national bank of ukraine and treeview state temporary limits of migration as just said that the number of asylum applications received from ukraine has increased significantly even numbers such as one hundred thousand as silent applications have been received within the past two weeks alarming figures indeed and these figures even increase in the nearest future as the situation just ask just getting out of control ukraine is now balancing on the verge of default the country's finance ministry claims bankruptcy is looming
6:22 pm
it's estimated more than thirty five billion dollars in aid will be needed by the end of twenty fifteen meanwhile its foreign debt has climbed to around one hundred forty billion that's nearly eighty percent of ukraine's gross domestic product and with the country being torn apart by those defining and supporting the new leadership the economic situation is only getting worse for more on this let's cross live to jeffrey summers who is a professional player of political science at the university of wisconsin milwaukee mr summers thanks for joining us now at the end of the day who do you think would actually be willing to foot that bill of thirty five billion dollars that ukraine needs to stay afloat. well i think it's certainly unlikely that either the e.u. or the united states will come up with that level of funding especially given the tendency towards cutting budgets and austerity in either country now of course the i.m.f. could very much would like to come forward with a stabilization program and of course this would result in austerity being imposed on the ukrainian economy and people. it's just difficult to say whether they're
6:23 pm
going to be able to muster the political will to come up with that level of funding and it doesn't really do anything to solve the medium to long run problems of the ukrainian economy anyway. well let's talk about the legitimacy of the government many within a country consider the current government to be illegitimate in your opinion well international organizations like say the i.m.f. be open to dealing with it at this point well i think unfortunately any government that expresses its willingness to work with the i.m.f. in imposing a kind of structural adjustment is going to be heralded as legitimate and as representing the popular will whether it does or does not. do any cash would most likely come with some fairly unpopular reforms for a stringent requirements that would be earmarked with it how could that affect the already explosive situation in this country in the we're talking austerity. well i
6:24 pm
think the current government as it's currently composed will just blame russia for the problems that will come with an austerity budget so you know they have an opportunity to deflect attention away from either the i.m.f. or even the european union so i think that's one consequence that we might see him now of course ukraine's economy is in a very precarious place right now because it could be more competitive if it did receive the reduced energy crisis which russia was offering that would make its chief export sector members even more competitive and could be quite good for it but if russian gas prices go up for ukraine them this could be quite quite bad for them well given the situation in east ukraine where a lot of the industry is located at the most economically developed part of the country it's gripped by massive pro russian protests right now how could that
6:25 pm
affect the current divisions how could the current divisions affect the economy as a whole there. well you know it's really dependent upon how much control the central government in ukraine to assert over the east so if the east loses. export markets in russia this could also be quite devastating for it. ukraine does have international markets beyond russia and the c.i.s. or it's not all products but again russian gas prices for ukraine go up and then metal products are going to be less competitive on world markets so it's a very very difficult situation for ukraine and it's honored all right jeffrey summers professor of political economy at the university of wisconsin milwaukee thank you very much for your input here. a reminder of our breaking news now russia's upper house of parliament has voted unanimously to approve the use of military forces in ukraine until the situation there stabilizes president putin has
6:26 pm
asked the senators to support the move this comes as protests against the interim government continue to multiply across ukraine in the east of the country up to ten thousand rallied in donetsk calling the current authorities in kiev illegitimate and mirroring the sentiment in crimea activists now want a referendum on the future of the donetsk region while in kharkov local self-defense forces broke through cordons to take back a local government building from radicals. i'll be back in about thirty minutes time with more news but after that before that rather it's the concert report. minnesota vikings football player jared allen like many pro athlete stereotypes is actually doing something for society with us and f.l. fame and fortune he is providing homes for turning wounded u.s.
6:27 pm
veterans good job mr allan 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 a much better chance at a good life and the fewer vets are living under a bridge the better society will be but that's just my opinion.
6:28 pm
the. girls ammo for the future are harder. there's between two and three hundred million guns in united states. so you can act like they're not here and keep kids away from them. deposits out if they want you know i mean this teaches them a lot of response ability to pay through the eyes of children it will do it for our children's future.
6:29 pm
welcome to the kaiser report imax kaiser you know the c.e.o. of mt gox try to concern troll is way into a bailout just like hank paulson trolling congress in two thousand and eight marker palace 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 big coin would collapse of course when treasury secretary x. goldman sachs bank 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
6:30 pm
in the style of john corazon of m.f. global information and now the us federal prosecutors have support and you. it's time to get a job on wall street that's where too big to fail crybabies operate point is no 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 way canada and america corrupt chinese officials flee overseas some bound for
6:31 pm
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 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 at 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 destructive america i mean i think it's something like twenty two percent so america six percent of the bitcoin economy being in question due to the
6:32 pm
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 space because bitcoin is free market capitalism it's not crony capitalism it's not 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 he 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
6:33 pm
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 there were so many chinese there were literally tens of thousands of them on this list on the 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 are 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 and 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
6:34 pm
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 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 years taken from the countries. fishel is 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
6:35 pm
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 they don't bother looking at the fact that on the top in the to do mass migration of billionaires it's causing incredible inflation that's bankrupting and destroying everyone else who is not in the kleptocrats class but the bankers only look at the people who are defective 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
6:36 pm
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 bitcoin 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 leak dot com actually you can see prove you remove all of the bitcoin going. into china well since tuesday more than thirty thousand bitcoins have changed hands in china that's four times the usual trade volume in compares with just three hundred exchange in the united states marc propellers is the john chorus sign of the bitcoin world he made a terrible bet on 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.
6:37 pm
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 but it cannot be printed to cover up the crimes so like real market free market 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 mean 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 junk or sign 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
6:38 pm
a free market capitalist economy something called the price signal and john chorus 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 fraud going on in the case of free market capitalism a bit coin 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 claimed to. out of the big coin economy you know people who say that bitcoin is not regulated are that's false the big coin is the most regulated currency in the world it's called the big protocol that's the regulation it just intermediates that it gets rid of 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 runs fin send you don't need them because it's self regulating
6:39 pm
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 it is what it is it was discovered and that's what it is you don't need a regulator to come and say we need to regulate equals mc squared similarly with 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 fishman 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
6:40 pm
a study looking at the united states in particular those bankers in particularly connected very strongly to tim geitner and what they found over the ten trading days following the announcement of tim geithner as treasury secretary financial firms with a connection to geithner 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 say 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 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
6:41 pm
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 lot to think to some next time thanks so much ok stay right there much more are coming your way. winter is when the sorrow comes to life. away says palm trees are being harvested. people are waiting for the biggest event of the you know. the desert festival. this is through a video out of the days. leading camel races have spent the last year preparing for the grueling marathon. the day before the race there's a heavy sound still overcoming the power of nature is a never ending challenge. a desert went to.
6:42 pm
pieces when you adjust your mental training children of the industrial revolution we come of age but of age seems to be running out of steam as well as boil coal gas water with old trees. we supply this energy crisis like this because we have a recession obama is wise and more sudden he's a monster but if i just futuristic like sticky stone next old might like to be precise. 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.
6:43 pm
how much more poison lies on the this ground. and behind this cell is what there is what we call the callet bankole which there is because it alters the code you're left by security test which calls for this version of radionuclides despite what you know he's creating efforts there remains the don't hold it i just a little less than two of the laws of the sodium in your stomach is a rock fall down all the coral reef and over south of i ten meters down nuclear tests a never ending legacy on our t.v. . 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 wardlow kaiser report and it's a pleasure to be on now i said something in the first half i'm going to comment on it because we're talking about it kind of terms of regulation and i said the thing about. it is the algorithm the protocol is the regulation so my example was equals
6:44 pm
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 can have no effect on it as it is what it is the bitcoin protocol self-regulating just a protocol doesn't matter what any regulator says is that is not a fair statement well yes yes and no so it's a first date when you stay in crypto land so as long as you're within the big quake watching the digital spectrum that's fine the minute you want to touch the few 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 or 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 it never touches i would imagine at some point well as long as you have to pay your taxes and figure out 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
6:45 pm
for example kenya where they transact with and pay so they transact with other digital currencies and so we'll probably see more were rule of law currencies are quite stable much as some would like or seceding from the fia world i want to i want to move onto a theory because this is what we're way we're here to talk about so it's theory i'm you know we broke big cooling on this show we were first to talk about it really in the world we talked about like calling 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 a huge new chapter in the whole krypto story so give a little brief on it if you could share so if you. 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 the block chain 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 send 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
6:46 pm
could invent so we did a theorem is it's really a project in frustration we took a step back and said no features let's have a feature list turn complete 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 featureless 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 of big oil 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 and says that this block chain can be used and another one way in a more abstracted way it 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
6:47 pm
want to give it to everybody else in the ecosystem and say you know have this 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 you could be the block chain in other words you know this is the base of the crypto bitcoin universe. all along the thames 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 much kind of plugging into the flow. so that is big and 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
6:48 pm
a little bit about that how that would work with the theory in terms of willie promise he's done some great work so if people go to a project activist 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 the stated cash flows basically and so we 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 was really trying to do with others it's actually take those of 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
6:49 pm
using a stereo on the block chain and take companies public create futures contract prediction markets all for virtually no cost exactly so already everyone in that industry wall street city of london is that now you know a word often a hundred in the tech space intermediated right so they get they get kind of blown out of it in 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. they 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 bitcoin 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 the contracts between property so we have smart property to even organizations that can live on
6:50 pm
a block chain and you can build consensus you can build reputation systems you 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 i'm replace or make obsolete bitcoin now we actually view big quoting to be kind of like gold in a theory and 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 theory and are great things to work together so they are complementary exactly ok now you are kept out of or so before
6:51 pm
a big call and there was something called cryptography and toshi not come otoh in the big client 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 that a 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 light bulb moment what exactly the transition from aha 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 because one is the primitive use for consensus so there's this idea of the block chain where i put things into the block
6:52 pm
chain and they don't come out and it's trusted and secure across all parties so you need to hashing algorithm to do that we've 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 going 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 a pig going to say look the current digital signing algorithm and there's two parts a public address that everybody in the world can know and that's fine and then
6:53 pm
there's the private key that only the person who has the right to spend the money has so these two things put together actually allow you to create a completely decentralized and trust list current it would be correct to say that the problem but going to solve is double spending yes it's almost double spend ok because before then i could send somebody an 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 approach inhibits spending but with the hashing algorithm you actually have digital consensus in a decentralized way to prevent you from. count rights instead of verify some people scarcity in a sense which is the first thing time that's ever been done we just talked 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 cash 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
6:54 pm
a digital sense the tokens are the big ones exactly right so you're solving you're paying the people who are a 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 big coin on the scarcity issue in other words you could say because 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 goals but in the earth's crust right forever but it's a technology and capital to go mind the goal 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
6:55 pm
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. or overly poetic you needed a lot of magic things to happen for it because it exists you needed the guys in the eighty's who are thinking about digital currencies to do the things you needed wadeye to do this work with crypto plus plus you needed bad them back to go ahead and create hashcash and all these things aggregated together at this beautiful paradigm shifting focal point which was suppose you know 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 moss was 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
6:56 pm
build something some tool to give him so because it is really the capstone of that theory and mr next step our hope is we're looking at everything that's been done in the pic when eco system 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 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 money 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 the scarcity but hey 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 abide by thanks so much for making the guys 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
6:57 pm
to thank our guest charles hoskins and of the syrian project if you like to get in touch tweet us a kaiser report the next time bio. technology innovation. developments around russia. the future covered. you know maybe you don't know if you don't think or you know no response to really . knows everyone in my life that i cared about their goal much and then. i came askin well. i was national champion in track and
6:58 pm
field and also i was able to go and qualify for the olympic games. you know nine hundred eighty eight i started to experiment with other drugs i had lost all the financial means that i. was really on the street. black market can. feel great. interest.
6:59 pm
little. little little. right little search trip. and i think a trip. on the reformers to. instal. was.
7:00 pm
breaking news on our t.v. russia's parliament approved the use of military forces in the ukraine following a request by president putin and an appeal for help from authorities in crimea. at a cost that used to be ukraine thousands rally in a dozen cities against the current government in kiev shouting for russia slogans invalid to protect their land from nationalist groups and. the leader of the ukrainian far right group called on international terrorist doku umarov the man behind multiple terror attacks across russia to join forces and step up attacks against moscow. and russia's federation council wants to recall a time that searches the u.s. after threatening words from president obama.
