2:04 pm
police failed to keep up roma done on probation demonstrators but the russian foreign ministry released a statement today warning that could be members of the ultra nationalist far right sector that would be making their way to donetsk and lugansk from kharkov which is obviously raised tensions and fears amongst people in donetsk. at the moment the third just cracking down on activists my husband was the first to be targeted but many more followed last night dozens of russian activists to arrest him any people who even briefly show their faces in the media i mean diddly threatened their home addresses and those of their parents are leaked on the internet and posted on right sector web sites along with calls to kill them kharkov was the scene of where two people were killed last night in a standoff involved dozens of demonstrators blockading themselves into a building and throwing appeared to be most of cocktails down on protesters and
2:05 pm
police the ukrainian interior ministry confirmed that it was the right sector that was behind these attacks the witnesses on the ground explained some of the scenes in which they witnessed last night. would you believe that there are a lot of wounded among both activists and police there was this blue minivan that appeared in the central square and pepper sprayed our activists and then tried to escape they started chasing is but ended up being shot at from a building the building on the remark is treated as a base for gunmen from the right sector they started shooting it's throwing molotov cocktails and gas grenades at the local news straight to see it was our risk was that attack this headquarters but it's not true it's the base of the right sector radicals it's war here the chief policeman was sent from kiev and he's covering these gunmen. it's very tense this weekend in ukraine and it's especially in donetsk. where i set
2:06 pm
a group involved in various incidents has become notorious for its a violent guerrilla tactics throughout the andress in ukraine and its threats against nine ukrainians living in the country. right no one tells us when to bear arms and we're not it wasn't huge given to us and you won't take them away while. their slaves including the group's promotional video are satiating online the right sector may not be the biggest faction within the form opposition but it was at the forefront of the uprising its men stormed and torched the government buildings and on armed police squads they also consistently rejected the concessions offered by the old administration when it was trying in vain to calm the angriest and now the rise sector has become all ghibli one of the most influential groups in ukraine. with neo nazis are
2:07 pm
gaining momentum and many jews in ukraine are feeling increasingly insecurely let me show you this this is a picture of what was painted on the door of a senate garden last month and in the recent disturbing incidents the leader of the jewish movement was beaten up in kiev the attackers were shouting empty symmetric slogans just months ago the rabbi was seen addressing the crowds on my dad. the jews have a tradition not to get involved in conflicts not to meddle with power we must stand aside and pray for the ministers for the government and for peace within the country. with a lack of peace and stability and the rise of neo nazi hardliners the many jews are considering feeling the country one rabbi told r.t. as policy or why he decided to leave his home the synagogue is empty the rabbi is packing his office up i don't want to really push them.
2:08 pm
because i want my children to feel safe i want my children to be free. speak walk on the weather think. there's a reason. this is not just for me in this war my children. and for latham and for two weeks ago a man was caught on camera painting swastikas on the door of the synagogue the message he left was chilling death to the jews it's the first time in twenty years a synagogue was vandalized as you can see the graffiti has been painted over but the police only came today to investigate the incident two weeks after it happened ever since the unrest started a number of jews have been attacked while walking on the streets of kiev there are about a hundred thousand jews living in ukraine right now but one of the country's chief rabbis is urging them to leave that says members of the right wing's forbode
2:09 pm
a party are now part of the interim government and here we fell that nobody will do anything wrong to us because we are protected under the law you colonel nowadays there is no i mean like you know because everything is changing so fast and i don't expect. anybody would protect the juice of innocent happens and so these ukrainian jews who do not want to leave are taking matters into their own hands self-defense training is being organized by film israeli army each forces and security personnel . i think you need to know how to defend yourself anywhere if there are such training courses i will be happy because people need these in every place and time but none of those who participated in the training would speak on camera this man agreed but only if we covered his face just like in the little book which everyone should learn how to defend themselves given the situation that we have here we know the my down movement is nationalist former israeli soldiers who have experience who
2:10 pm
know how to act in this kind of situation of helping to get ready for prime minister siniora has pointed out that his deputy prime minister represents the jewish community and says his government will fight against any form of fascism but the people we spoke to don't sound optimistic the. soul is blending her chums and now the time is not these but the risk of stating is just too high many of ukraine's jews fear that mr tax will shift from synagogues to human targets point to. sue for multiple crimea. we'll bring you more on the developments in ukraine and the risks a journalist taking the russian reporter have come under attack from radicals and such a lot of providers have refused to work with odds over anonymous a threat small and that still to come on our to international do stay with us for more.
2:11 pm
crosstalk rules in effect that means you can jump in anytime you want.
2:12 pm
to cut. thanks for staying with us in less than twenty four hours the people of crimea will head to the polls or if his story vote on whether they want to remain a part of ukraine or join russia. the province is now holding a day of silence with no political campaigning allowed the referendum was called up to locals if you see recognize the new leadership in kiev and called for greater autonomy within that make russian population of around sixty percent and with the russian being the main language spoken on the peninsula it's widely expected that
2:13 pm
the majority will opt for joining russia is what some international observers are expecting from sunday's ballot. considering ukraine is falling apart as a state that failed to provide its citizens with basic rights the people of crimea are holding a referendum to determine their future we hope will be held within the rule of law and invite any violations and we have to take into consideration the people's opinion and the results of this vote evermore not all people will have their say but i expect the referendum to be positive under ukrainian law and general democratic rules this is a legitimate vote. while the world powers continue to argue over the situation in ukraine the screws are being tightened on russia's media in the country several journalists have come under attack from radicals earlier i talked to my colleague marina cosgrove about the threats reporters are facing. there's
2:14 pm
a lot. at the moment and we have plenty of examples the first one i'll start with is there's a big international provider and i can mention the name. they have refused to work with artsy they have stopped in fact they claim that they had a gang of men that came in wearing masks and also they were they were carrying weapons and they said that if you don't stop working with channels broadcasting there there are satellite feeds basically our correspondents for our viewers also understand how this. works secondly they were intimidated to stop working with r.t. as well as other channels too they have apologized to r.t. and they said but they feel threatened so they can't carry on any longer and then of course we have countless of reports of journalists being that's why those radicals that we've seen on my down square as well there is one example of. who is a russian reporter and just because he'd. be
2:15 pm
a riot police. later there we go we can see this is where he actually explains what happened to him and he said that he was frightened. because again. it's police that's just example then there's also a call even further with let's take a look. i have been receiving numerous threats since the rights to put me on the wanted list on their website or for rewards for my capture and within a few hours the message was reported tens of thousands of times i want to thank regular people in key of who do not support this and who offered their how to shelter me from the radicals and these are the people that people who are going there intimidating and attacking journalists are the people that we're seeing in the western world so forth and back and we are seeing more stories coming out of how these radicals how they're trying to suppress the truth from coming out especially when it comes from russian media and in fact my call they're going to
2:16 pm
see a truck and has more on that. as the ukrainian crisis continues we're breaking down some inconsistency surrounding the ongoing hysteria. despite ukraine's interim prime minister gets a new claim in the interests of russians are not being affected in the country at all russian speaking t.v. news channels are facing censorship even the o.s.c. has spoken out against this ukraine's national council on t.v. and radio broadcasting called on t.v. providers to refrain from featuring five russian networks until their programming is deemed appropriate according to ukraine's legal system as a result more than half of those tuning in to cable t.v. in the country don't have access to those five networks want to see freedom of the press representative called the measure repressive and a form of censorship moving on. the stone and prime minister has made allegations that moscow is preparing to invade eastern ukraine russia's foreign minister sergey
2:17 pm
lavrov reiterated that moscow has no such plans and intends to continue being nothing less than transparent with. the russian federation does not and cannot have any plans to invade eastern and southern ukraine we strongly believe that the rights of russians just like the rights of hungary until both carians or of course the rights of ukrainians my. shoulder and pretext that the lack of any significant rights violations in crimea at the moment is thanks to the additional measures taken by the local self-defense forces to prevent what happened on my done from happening in crimea those protesters still have that compromise done in the center of european capital. there's been a lot of buzz surrounding washington's pledge to provide one billion dollars in aid to key of the ukrainian interim prime minister was in d.c. to talk business with obama as well as the heads of the i.m.f. and the world bank but despite all these promises and words of support the cash flow into kiev has stalled with the senate going into
2:18 pm
a week long recess but the u.s. is determined not to see ukraine's armed forces go hungry the obama administration said it will be providing them with. the frenzy surrounding snipers operating on my done during the peak of chaos and clashes and this reports accused the ousted ukrainian president you know which of sending in the snipers russia called for an investigation but when it leaked the opposition may have ordered the snipers to open fire many in the west drop the subject like a hot potato in the meantime the former head of ukraine security service released the names of those who could have been responsible for the killings and kyo one of them is now the secretary of the national security and defense council the parliamentary assembly of the council of europe has not answered russia's request for an investigation into the alleged crimes committed by the opposition germany had supported the inquiry but no further steps have been taken and r.t. washington d.c.
2:19 pm
. back to the referendum in crimea and now in moscow crowds turned up in the center of the city to demonstrate in favor of the people's right to vote they also voiced support for the russian speaking population in the region a rival rally is also just taking place in the russian capital this time against crimea leaving crane it's called a march of peace and both gatherings to several thousand people. stay with us over the weekend for our coverage of the crimean referendum. three years ago and to
2:20 pm
a government uprising began in syria and escalated into full blown civil war the united nations us says what followed has been the most the worst humanitarian crisis the world has seen in decades. of a one thousand people have been killed since the war began the un has stopped updating the death toll saying it can no longer verify the facts so the actual number is feared to be much higher more than two million people have fled syria and that's just the official number another six and a half million people have been displaced inside the country and the majority of all the refugees are women and children we spoke with one syrian whose family was targeted by islam as for supporting the government. but on and of of that there's been a lot of losses i lost two sons and my wife is still under threat just because i
2:21 pm
spoke my mind when the crisis started the opposition threatened to kill my son we're living in our own country and then the opposition came and wanted to kill him they searched for him and they knew where he was then they came for him but they only succeeded in killing two of his brothers. this is a picture of my son in a turkish newspaper where it promises five million dollars for his death yes this is in turkey where they're calling for freedom. the civil war has left a trail of destruction throughout syria collapsed buildings have become all too common and as you can see here many of the landmarks size that made up the country's ancient cultural heritage now lie in ruins so we're talking museums have been looted and i kill logical sites devastated by shelling attacks they conned me has also crumbled more than half of syrians have no means of making money and over sixty percent live in poverty one damascus resident told us his young children have
2:22 pm
to work to put food on the table. the life of me and my children has changed one hundred eighty degrees since the first days of the syrian crisis up to now. i can add that i left all i gained in my life in the destroyed region it said so i know and now i can't get my own bread i have to struggle for food on a day to day basis i used to be a construction manager now my children are working i have sons and daughters and i have some money from my construction work i want my region back in two thousand and twelve with very little money in my pocket and my car which i still had to pay off between then and now if it wasn't for my kids working helping me somehow i wouldn't be able to feed them i was disabled when my house was hit by mortar and destroyed my car was also damaged so i can't help my children because i can walk only with walking sticks probably i look fine but i'm disabled and cannot work. the conflict
2:23 pm
has attracted radical islamists not just from the neighboring countries let's take a look here now at least two thousand europeans are now fighting in syria france is the biggest source of jihadi volunteers from the e.u. with paris putting the figure at seven hundred belgium and germany have each seen around three hundred people head for syria and while in the u.k. recently it it admitted that two hundred fifty britons haven't returned home from the war and now pose a significant terror threat the father of one european islamists says governments turning a blind eye to the situation. they are selected sure created by radical islamist organizations or some of the it we know well the reasons why children like my son and other youngsters moved up to syria we know the reasons very well even european government know this reasons some were people there were because they get there it's the mood of some people they can move up because they look at five hundred
2:24 pm
they're looking for attention the freedom fighters all this kind of things they move up because of in the name of religion they know all the reasons why you don't just move up and nobody's doing something against it did you have got a government just watching. more news in brief the solemn unknown gunmen have reportedly opened fire on an army checkpoint in moving cairo healing six soldiers two bombs were found at the scene and defused wisconsin state after another soldier was killed in an attack on an army that the military has claimed to the buzz the brotherhood with was declared a terrorist organization last year and egypt has seen a rise in such attacks since a slam as president mohamed morsi was ousted last year.
2:25 pm
in turkey and to government drivers have blocked roads and said cars on fire police used tear gas and water cannon to dispose of protesters honoring a fifteen year old boy who died on monday victims' families say he was buying bread when he was hit by a police to get tennis to nine months ago leaving him in a coma all of a prime instead of one has defended the action of the police and branded the team a terrorist. up next every martin is a breaking of the set but if you're watching form of the u.k. it's just galloway with his show neck. sarah palin caused quite a stir at the recent twenty fourteen conservative political action conference and
2:26 pm
her now famous infamous quote about how to deal with russia is flying all over the internet to both cheers and jeers she said the only thing that stops a bad guy with a nuke is a good guy with a nuke to be fair people are taking this quote a bit out of context to saying that in terms of her fears that obama is disarming the country's nuclear arsenal and well from what we've seen having a big batch of nukes sure keeps the interventions out of your country but her belief that obama is disarming the u.s. is madness there's absolutely no evidence that obama has even put a dent into the military industrial complex also using the term bad guys and saying there are bad countries with bad people in them who just want to do bad things this is the level of intellectual discourse of a kindergarten class russia is just bad her childlike view of the world also applies to violence because she talked about conveying threats to putin so what do these threats even mean do you want to war with russia a nuclear war pale and red is the worst type of chickenhawk garbage and what is even worse is that there are millions of people out there who buy into the
2:27 pm
simplistic moronic let's nuke the bad guys more war rhetoric but that's just my opinion. of. what's going on t.v. land i'm not in martin and this is praising the set so last week the state department released an environmental impact report stating that the southern leg of the keystone x.l. pipeline will have an insignificant impact on carbon emissions but even if this report gives obama the green light to move forward one group is refusing to allow the can. struction of keystone native american communities including the oglala
2:28 pm
sioux just released a statement entitled no keystone x.l. pipeline will cross lakota lands. nation as well as other tribes from oklahoma to oregon have banded together to plan how they will take direct action yes it looks like obama now has america's indigenous community to worry about if you does approve this toxic project so if you believe that that's destructive pipeline has no business crossing their native american territory and join me and let's break this up. to. the plate. it was terrible they are looking very hard to take. care of well i never had sex with that here they're.
2:29 pm
like. my next guest is someone who has shattered the two party monopoly after winning a seat on seattle's city council what makes her unique is that she's the first socialist to be elected to public office and decades her name is seanna so want and she continues to make headlines as a critical voice in the fight for fifteen movement a campaign to raise the minimum wage to fifteen dollars an hour so i joined me earlier to talk about this campaign and her political career considering how running third party usually means a political death sentence i first asked her why she chose to do so. so i did and it has been ended on you know. any quality on the injustices of the
2:30 pm
bailout of the big banks to the occupy movement people are looking for alternatives to the political dysfunction of the two parties of big business looking for alternatives for the systemic failure that has generated enormous poverty enormous social and economic injustice at the same time that big business and the super wealthy are growing wealthy or at historically high proportions and so. actually on the contrary this this not being a death sentence this is actually a huge opening for the left to build its forces to build mass movement and to recognize that people are ready and getting ready to move into struggles where your campaign is definitely proof that socialist ideals do resonate with people white because it's a concerted effort to shut down and demonize socialism by the corporate media why do you it's clear why the corporate media want to be immunized you know there's been a whole decades of. stigmatizing the ideas of socialism
2:31 pm
and you know a lot of that has to do with the former soviet union that you had a dictatorship which you know certainly i'm not advocating for you know we are as socialist alternative advocating for democratic socialism meaning the society being run democratically in the interests of all working people on the planet all the children of everybody who has needs and all of that being done in an environmentally sustainable manner so whether somebody calls themselves socialist or not this is a rational need everybody recognizes my family needs economic security i need a decent housing that's affordable i need good jobs my my partner needs good just my children need access to good education and then a broad swath of people recognize that the system is not providing for them and instead increasing the gap. well the gap advantage got obviously people are moving
2:32 pm
into thinking that you know this is not working we need something different what can be and show then that sort of questioning starts to arise that's attractive to the ruling class that's a threat to big business to big corporations and to the two parties judgment and so you know they are going to make attempts to shut it down or define someone across the occupy movement was the establishment federalized crackdown the minister from the top down here pivotal advocate for the fight for the fifty nine campaign a push to raise the minimum wage to fifteen dollars an hour but obama's proposal to increase the minimum wage to just ten dollars an hour is generating a lot of opposition from people who said they would hurt small businesses and the economy how do you respond and also the son the fight for fifteen. to the financial feet as you correctly said yes that is not the at the center of political struggle all around the united states and you know seattle is no you know showing the way and in fact i would mention that sea-tac the seat i can you should have to thank is
2:33 pm
a neighboring city to seattle they've already passed a ballot initiative that voters voted for they voted in fifteen dollars an hour so clearly there is political momentum on the grassroots for this to happen. as for is obama's executive order for ten dollars and ten cents for future contract workers for federal federal contract companies i would say that any step forward is a welcome development however ten dollars and ten cents is not a ticket out of poverty as i've said before and also for those who say that any increase in minimum wage is going to shut down small businesses i really have to be bold and audacious in reminding people that in reality capitalism is not a system that favors small businesses small business businesses as somebody else has said our likes squirrels done thing in the middle of a listen to the and you know corporations big corporations they dominate the economic landscape not small businesses so you. people genuinely want to support small businesses they have to recognize that the interests of small businesses and
2:34 pm
working people often go hand in hand and their boat getting beaten down by the recession and increasing the minimum wage will actually be a step forward for small businesses and i would go even further i would say that the minimum wage legislation that we put forth in seattle and elsewhere they should include. clauses that make small businesses make it possible for them to pay fifteen dollars an hour to get employees and put the burden on corporations were now think historically low taxes your campaign took no donations from big business making a big business only relied on small donors amazing amazing feat it's certainly an anomaly in a political sense and that's so dysfunctional where money is speech do you think that what you've done can really be replicated across the country. you know if you look at seattle suddenly it has its own unique features but i would say their unique features for every city what is not unique and what is all encompassing
2:35 pm
nationally is the rapid decline in living standards for the majority of the people for the ninety nine percent you see a never ending race to the bottom you'd especially are looking into an abyss of low wage jobs student debt and just a really bleak future so everywhere there's a seeking of alternatives and in seattle socialist alternative has won the election for city council we also ran a campaign in minneapolis where time more ran as a candidate he's been a long time activist in the occupy homes campaign and he came very close to winning so i think the conditions for the left for alternatives to democrats and republicans to build their forces exist the question is are we going to take advantage of that and i would say that we don't even need to speculate look at the evidence already oh you know the real goal nobody was talking about fifteen dollars an hour people were making fun of us political pundits you know with a number of articles on how out of touch we were but look at look at us no fifteen
2:36 pm
dollars an hour is at the top of the political agenda not just in seattle but nationally you have the white house talking about it why is that that's because they're facing the heat from the grassroots and that's why our primary task is not only to run independent candidates but also to build a mass movement and that's what we're doing in seattle you know we have launched a fifty now dot org campaign so i would urge all your viewers to check out one five know all argee and become a part of that so i like what you said about this is a reflection of reality because there really isn't even as we're going to service in the streets certainly knows that the best the left has a congressional representation bernie sanders of war i mean that the right seems to be fully represented what do you think is the root of this is proportionality is it just that the left is bad at winning politically on that level. i think primarily that can be attribute it to the side progressive liberals left you know whatever label people choose for themselves for decades have bought into this idea that you
2:37 pm
can build outside the democratic party and if you want to be successful in pushing for socially just causes for economic justice and you have to work within the democratic party as does issue and i would say the same thing about elizabeth warren i mean i really admire the woman but i seriously doubt what could be accomplished within the democratic party establishment because regardless of your own of commitment to social justice if you are serving the democratic party then you are serving the interests of big business look at goldman sachs look at the historically high contributions obama got from them and from other big banks the same banks that were responsible for the financial collapse so the main task of the left is to recognize that is not a channel for any social change and that step for social change that requires requires a last week was the labor movement to recognize that recons this is a failed strategy you know this is an abusive relationship that we've been stuck in
2:38 pm
for decades with the democratic party look at those among those money and the number of foot soldiers the labor movement provides for every election for the democratic party and what have we got out of that we've got a long term assault on labor unions there's no real wake up to this and the sooner we wake up to the fact that there's an openness to independent politics the better our results will be even though your campaign does resonate with many i think a lot of people still have this cold war mentality they think socialism equals communism equals tyranny i mean even though we import social concepts in this country and across europe how do you get people to disarm from this now perspective i think that's true that you know these very sort of just coming up from under the wake of the cold war propaganda but in reality i would say that a lot. young people and i mean anywhere from their teens to early forty's you know a lot of people are actually waking up to the the just
2:39 pm
a complete failure of the capitalist system to solve even the basic problems of poverty and access to basic needs and so they are actually stepping outside of that whole realm and trying to see what else could be possible so in fact if you look at the recent pew research poll it shows that young people are more favorable to socialism than to capitalism and there is an openness to look at alternatives and i would say that there is another aspect to this openness and that's the question of the environment so especially if you look at young people who radicalizing our own environmentalists shoes it is becoming more and more clear to them that the democratic party and capitalism are the republican party you know that whole that whole system is it's completely dysfunctional not working and in fact. when you know when we made our so state of the union response a lot of people. gave us this feedback you know obama speech did not even mention
2:40 pm
keystone x.l. did not mention the question of striking and it's so empty it's empty rhetoric to be talking about climate change when you're overseeing an administration that is actually promoted fracking promoted the use of these destructive practices that are actually going to be. immensely leading us in a regressive way to our planet change and so i think that all those does all these economic and environmental and social questions are converging in people's minds and they're really crystallizing and blossoming into deep questioning of society itself thomas the one city council member city of seattle really appreciate you coming on thank you very much for having me. coming up i talk to paul. her prize winning journalist chris hedges stick around. this week kim jong un one hundred percent of the parliamentary vote it is
2:41 pm
constituency state media reports that this is an expression of the people's absolute support and profound trust in supreme leader kim jong un. is the single moderately remain loyal to him holding him in the high just deep and the glorious us financial markets media loyal to the markets holding them in high esteem report that one hundred percent of market participants are winning because the people remain single mindedly loyal to the dow jones abundant wealth assault on the people of new record i get a bazillion dollars because. you know recall be very black and white approach that the european union to come to this issue in the beginning of the crisis you know either you're with us or you are with russia. was that a pragmatic. you know a reasonable path to follow and i think it was
2:42 pm
a foolish approach from me half of the european union. not the european union didn't know what with what it was stamping them to. be interviewed.
2:43 pm
choose your language. make it without any financial literacy skills and. the consumer. choose the opinions that you think are a cool. choose the stories that employ. the accent. breaking the set recently took a trip to pine ridge reservation in south dakota pine ridge is one of the poorest counties in the us and the conditions there are comparable to developing countries this is partly why pulitzer prize winning journalist and social critic chris hedges has referred to places like pine ridge as capitalism sacrifice sons however the
2:44 pm
systemic subjugation is as old as civilization itself earlier today chris joining me to talk about the roots of institutionalized inequality and the reasons behind the collapse of complex societies i first asked him why places like pine ridge are so susceptible to such extreme poverty. the places where our unfettered. capitalist forces backed by force. behalf of the railroad companies timber merchants the the people who profited from decimating the buffalo herds. mining concerns came in and seized the land of native americans and killed most of them and not only that but after herding them into what in essence were prisoner of war camps set out to destroy their culture their religion their language it's why indian children were taken from their parents and put in christian boarding schools
2:45 pm
where they were not allowed for instance and to speak up and what's happening now with the late and of the industrial age and capitalism is that the reservation environment. native american people have endured and suffered under is being extended growing in greater and greater areas you know we're all being sacrificed as the residents of charleston west virginia were sacrificed when their water was poisoned by coal can it still poison the well they've been told to drink it people children are coming home from school sick this is not something that is unknown to native americans and i think that whole demented project of ceaseless exploitation expansion and violence the template of that was set. in the westward expansion you discuss how the world is
2:46 pm
globally integrated under an unsustainable form of capitalism but america positions itself atop the totem pole justified by the notion of american exceptionalism how do you think that that notion plays into the global collapse. well corporations are preying on the united states in the way that they prey on ole nation states they are. in this as a supranational no loyalty to any one nation and that's how you have seen the decimation of the american manufacturing base that is how you have seen the transference of capital over seas where it lies beyond the reach of taxation you have seen the rise of the decimation of the working class and the rise of tremendous numbers of poor whether they're listed as in poverty or a category called near poverty we're now talking about half the country and
2:47 pm
the myth of america is still there the idea that if you work hard you can make something of yourself the idea that we have a right to travel the globe and impose our virtues suppose of virtues on other countries by force which is what we are doing attempting to do throughout the middle east although it's not going very well for us but look you know imperialism has always been a mask for trade for business for control of natural resources that is true has been true since the united states began its imperialist expansion with the conquest of the philippines cuba. the control of the caribbean for sugar bananas. into the middle east for the control of oil so what we're seeing is a kind of clash between the myth that america once used to identify itself
2:48 pm
and let's not forget that you know many of the most fervent supporters of imperialist expansion came from labor unions i mean gompers was at the versailles treaty i mean the all segments of the society were complicit but these forces. which would in essence a kind of cow. as both the natural environment and exploit human labor and i've been doing this on the outer reaches of empire for decades have are now being done internally just as it was done in the original conquest of the united states against native americans you talk about the impending environmental catastrophes and also the severe economic uncertainty on the horizon why do you think there's no sense of urgency on a large scale to address these troubling trends. well because they're not reported the commercial media is the bread and circus it's about spectacle it's about
2:49 pm
celebrity gossip it's about the super bowl i mean every week it's something new and you know if we had a responsible media especially a broadcast media we would understand that climate change at this point is an emergency. that you know at this point the effects of climate change are unstoppable. and if we don't radically reconfigure our relationship with the ecosystem very very quickly the human species itself is in jeopardy and you can look at the world bank. report on climate change turn up the heat the world bank can hardly be accused of being a radical organization and they speak of the end of that report in utterly apocalyptic terms so you know scientists. especially people who study climate
2:50 pm
change they know very well what's happening and yet we're not hearing their voices we are mesmerized by electronic collusive nations and that's of course how corporations want it when forty percent of the summer arctic sea ice melts companies corporations like shell oil look at the death throes of our planet as a business opportunity in their run. up and drop half a billion dollar drill bits down into the arctic sea. the the i think what we have seen is. a kind of iron control of the systems of information by corporate power who are determined to exploit and exploit and exploit intil collapse and now we're of course about to see in all likelihood the president approved the northern leg of the keystone x.l. pipeline so it's an uninformed public it's a public which has been diverted their emotional and intellectual energy has
2:51 pm
been invested in the spectacle. coupled with a kind of ruthless corporate totalitarianism that thinks only in terms of quarterly profit and has absolutely no concern for the not only the common good but the very sustenance of. the ecosystem that might provide some kind of decent and acceptable living standards for future generations chris but on the flip side you've also said that as collapse becomes probable humanity will retreat into what anthropologists call crisis cults what is a crisis called and why does our psychological hardwiring always revert back to these modes of group think. well when things become so desperate. retreat or human societies retreat into forms of magical thinking at the end of the. indian wars. in the latter part of the one nine hundred
2:52 pm
centuries you saw the rise of the ghost dance. which swept through the remnants of native communities these communities believed that the great spirit the warriors would come back. the buffalo herds would come back they would get their lands back the white colonizer would disappear that is replicated i mean anthropologists have studied throughout societies that collapse now we the way we express our crisis called is through the radical christian right again a form of magical thinking which denies evolution which believes in the rapture that those believers when jesus returns will be raptured up into heaven that's a classic example of a crisis cult so that when things become desperate you gather in a church you pray you carry out christian ritual you tend to lash out at
2:53 pm
a society to purge you see it in the rhetoric you know whether it's against homosexuals whether it's against undocumented workers muslims a long list of contaminants that will somehow make the society right all of that has within it the makings of a crisis call but crisis cults are what societies do when despair reaches such a level and we're certainly headed in that direction when you're unable in any real way to affect the environment or the world around you then then you wrap yourself in these cocoons of fantasy and the article the myth of human progress you write in reference to truth that people get as close as they can be for the flames and drive them back into the lecture on moral honesty comes at the cost. by the fire of reality become burnt children he wrote eternal empires of allusion chris this is the way it's always worked and those who seek truth are constantly ostracized as humanity is doomed to be subject to empires of illusion. i'm quoting nietzsche
2:54 pm
there. looking down only artists and philosophers have the capacity to look into what he called the core of molten reality and when they come back out. they find that the wider populace which is unable to look can't deal with it and so i depart a little bit from nietzsche there nietzsche like plato says that you create illusions myth in order to explain reality or help people cope with the reality unfortunately the role of truth tellers in distraught or disturbed societies and we have our own examples of that whether it's known chomsky or or ralph nader or cornell west all of them for getting up and speaking unpleasant truth have been pushed to the fringes of society and on the liberal class is as guilty maybe even more guilty than that stations like m s n b c which are utterly subservient to the
2:55 pm
democratic party and to the cult of brock obama have kept those voices from a so it's not just the right it's the left that are both trading in a kind of fultz reality and that's very dangerous because when you can't confront reality when your society shuts out those voices that seek to describe what reality is and how it works then you can talk about hope and you can talk about change because all hope and change is essentially redirected into a dead political process or redirected into fantasy i mean the idea that. barack obama is going to save us from wall street or from. drone wars or you know from environmental degradation it's a bit like you know all those poor prisoners in the gulag or writing letters to uncle joe stalin and that is. symptomatic and i think the united states would
2:56 pm
be probably a good example of an empire in serious decay in decline these are qualities that are symptomatic of a society that can no longer no longer has the intellectual and moral health to face hard facts and readjust and carry out forms of self-criticism and soft correction but i. see. the words i would. say the. ukrainian treasures have come to our land it's a threat to russia and its. crimea it is
2:57 pm
a small republican russia it is a huge country and defend us. the long came to an end when the first moment of cocktail was thrown in our guys who stood there defending the law and order we believe that he. has never surrendered to anyone and it never will. this comes from the heart you know i've never even seen him in person for me the. this is the image of a hero the world's first everyone knows his name but few people ever implemented. first spaceflights the product of good fortune or destiny. to be fail to learn
2:58 pm
structurally he could see the grounds they started throwing punches at it. was a turning point. we wanted to create a realistic global that would represent life that would depict life as it really is . there's an accident six. what some people wonderful this the whole thing is a model. of.
2:59 pm

3:02 pm
recent takeover of power in kiev here's washes with only took at the council when muslims of lawsuits as you will we cannot agree to the draft main proposition which is to declare the sixteenth of march referendum which will see the people of crimea decide in the future to be a legal standard just stance taken by the authors of this draft violates some of the main principles of international law if you must with equal rights of all people and the right to self-determination as and trying to article one of the un charter people so why should backs crimea's who say kiev has failed their trust when their elected leader was overthrown to street riots the russian representative also pointed at washington's role in fanning the flames of the crisis in ukraine despite her bone i mean this is powell was talking about dreams and hopes so why are you dismissing the rights of the crimean people to express their hopes the referendum is not on march the sixteenth some of the harshest criticism came from the you once which appeals to international norms about non interference in other
3:03 pm
states affairs which left many wondering about washington's own record of violating one principle but a pretty much regular basis. the russian foreign ministry is warning that gunmen from the right to such a group may be heading to eastern ukrainian cities to stage a provocation same one of these cities is daniel coyle one man was steps to death in the streets clashes on thursday and with thousands gathered today for pro russian much ryan o'neal is a forty. the protests continued inverness today where literally thousands of people have taken to the streets there was a break up demonstration that made its way to the security services headquarters where demonstrators brought a list of demands one of which was for a referendum for don't ask to be part of russia and the other one was for the release of puzzled goober of a probation demonstrated that was arrested last week now we haven't seen the violence that we saw on thursday where one protest to stop to death after police
3:04 pm
failed to keep apart from my down on probation demonstrators. but the russian foreign ministry released a statement today warning that there could be members of the ultra nationalist far right sector that would be making their way to donetsk and lugansk from kharkov which is obviously raised tensions and fears amongst people in donetsk. at the moment that are just cracking down on activists my husband was the first to be targeted and that's many more for last night dozens of small russian activist rest any people who even briefly show their faces in the media i mean diddly threatened their home addresses and those of their parents are leaked on the internet and posted on the right sector web sites along with calls to kill them kharkov was the scene of where two people were killed last night in a standoff that involved dozens of demonstrators blockading themselves into a building and throwing what appeared to be most of cocktails down on protesters
3:05 pm
and police the ukrainian interior ministry confirmed that it was the right sector that was behind these attacks the witnesses on the ground explained some of the scenes in which they witnessed last night. would you believe that there were a lot of wounded among both activists and police there was this blue minivan that appeared in the central square and pepper spray directives and then tried to escape they started chasing is but ended up being shut out from a building the building on the remark is treated as a base for gunmen from the right sector they started shooting it's throwing molotov cocktails and gas grenades at the local news straight to see it was our scores that attacked this headquarters but it's not true it's the base of the right sector radicals it's war here the chief policeman was sent from kiev and he's covering these gunmen. ryan o'neal reporting the now the right sector group involved in those incidents or has become notorious for its violent guerrilla tactics
3:06 pm
throughout the unrest in ukraine and its threats against man ukrainians living in the country. no one tells us when to bear arms and when not to you wasn't you given to us and you won't take them away. those clips including the group's promotional video are circulating online now the right sector may not be the biggest faction within the former physician but it was at the forefront of the uprising its members are stomped and tossed the government buildings and attacked an armed police squads they also consistently rejected the concessions are fired by the old administration when it was trying in vain to calm the unrest and now the right sector has become one of the most influential groups in ukraine international law experts alexander on the courses says it's high time this is she got more attention in europe. at this moment in time i do think western
3:07 pm
governments want to know about the problems they're in denial about it. levels some people in the west are concerned i know that in greece for example there is a lot of concern with the way in which greek fascists from the golden dawn movement have been going to here but western governments do not want to accept this fact because if they do it undermines the legitimacy of the authority in kiev which they are supporting. with the lack of peace and stability and the rise of neo nazi hardliners many jews are considering leaving the country now let's take a look at this this is us along with an empty symmetric slogan painted on the door of a synagogue last month so with places of worship and cemeteries being vandalized it's perhaps unsurprising the jews now fear for their safety one rabbi told r.t.
3:08 pm
his policy why he decided to flee his home. this synagogue is empty the rabbi is packing his office up around one really pushed. because of all my children. i want my children to be free to. speak openly where they think. there's a reason. this is not just for real this for my children. two weeks ago a man was caught on camera painting swastikas on the door of the synagogue the message he left was chilling death to the jews it's the first time in twenty years a synagogue was vandalized as you can see the graffiti has been painted over but the police only came today to investigate the incident two weeks after it happened ever since the unrest started a number of jews have been attacked while walking on the streets of kiev there are
3:09 pm
about a hundred thousand jews living in ukraine right now but one of the country's chief rabbis is urging them to leave that says members of the right wing's forbode a party are now part of the interim government and here we fell that nobody will do anything wrong to us because we are protected under the law you criminal law nowadays there is no law i mean like you know because everything is changing so fast and i don't expect. anybody would protect the jews if anything happens and so these ukrainian jews who do not want to leave are taking matters into their own hands self-defense training is being organized by film israeli army eat horses and security personnel. i think you need to know how to defend yourself anywhere if there are such training courses i will be happy because people need these in every place and time but none of those who participated in the training would speak on camera this man agreed but only if we covered his face but when the leader of the
3:10 pm
everyone should learn how to defend themselves given the situation that we have here we know the my down movement is nationalist former israeli soldiers who have experience who know how to act in this kind of situation and helping us to get ready for prime minister siniora has pointed out that his deputy prime minister represents the jewish community and says his government will fight against any form of fascism but the people we spoke to don't sound optimistic the job. so his blending her son's. was not his but the risk of stating is just too high many of ukraine's jews fear that ultra nationalist attacks will shift from synagogues to human targets. some from crimea we'll bring you more on the developments in ukraine and the wrists a journalist taking the russian reporter says come on the radical sense that
3:11 pm
a lot of providers have read so used to work with. anonymous threats war stories is still coming up off of the some great. well. it's technology innovation all the latest developments from around russia we've got the future covered. dramas that can't be ignored. stories others refuse
3:12 pm
to notice. places change the world. so picture of today's leaves. from around the globe. local. i. in less than twenty four hours the people of crimea will head to the polls for historic birds on whether they want to remain a part of ukraine or join russia. the province as now holding a day of silence with no political campaigning allowed the referendum was called after locals refused to recognize the new leadership in kiev and colorful greater
3:13 pm
autonomy with an ethnic russian population of around sixty percent and with russian being the main language spoken on the peninsula it's widely predicted that the majority will opt for joining russia here's what some international observers are expecting from sunday's ballot. considering you cream is falling apart as a state that failed to provide its citizens with basic rights the people of crimea are holding a referendum to determine their future we hope will be held within the rule of law unveiled any violations and we will have to take into consideration the people's opinion and the results of this vote evermore not able will have their say but i expect the referendum to be positive under ukrainian law and general democratic rules this is a legitimate vote. while world powers continue to argue over the situation in ukraine where the screws are being tightened on russian media in the country and several journalists have come under attack from radicals earlier talk to my
3:14 pm
colleague marina cosgrove about the threats reporters facing. there's a lot. at the moment and we have plenty of examples the first one i'll start with is there's a big international provider and i can mention the name. they have refused to work with r.t. they have stopped in fact they claimed that they had a gang of men that came in wearing masks and also they were they were carrying weapons and they said that if you don't stop working with channels and broadcasting there there are satellite feeds basically our correspondents for our viewers also understand how this. works and then secondly they were intimidated to stop working with r.t. as well as other channels to they have apologized to r.t. and they said but they feel threatened so they can't carry on any longer and then of course we have countless of reports of journalists being that's why those radicals that we've seen on my square as well there is one example of. who.
3:15 pm
just because he'd. be a riot police. later there we go we can see this is where he actually explains what happened to him and he said that he was frightened and beaten up because again. it's police that's just one example then there's also a call and they took it even further with him let's take a look. i have been receiving numerous threats since the right to put me on the wanted list on their website or for a reward for my capture and within a few hours the message was reported to tens of thousands of times i want to think regular people who do not support this and who over there how to shelter me from the radicals and these are the people that people who are going there intimidating and attacking journalists are the people that we're seeing in the western world so forth and back and we are seeing more stories coming out of how these radicals how
3:16 pm
they're trying to suppress the truth from coming out especially when it comes from russian media and in fact my call they're going to see a truck and has more. as the ukrainian crisis continues we're breaking down some inconsistency surrounding the ongoing hysteria. despite ukraine's interim prime minister gets a new claim in the interests of russians are not being affected in the country at all russian speaking t.v. news channels are facing censorship even the o.s.c. has spoken out against this ukraine's national council on t.v. and radio broadcasting called on t.v. providers to refrain from featuring five russian networks until their programming is deemed appropriate according to ukraine's legal system as a result more than half of those tuning in to cable t.v. in the country don't have access to those five networks want to see freedom of the press representative called the measure repressive and a form of censorship moving on. the stone and prime minister has made allegations
3:17 pm
that moscow is preparing to invade eastern ukraine russia's foreign minister sergey lavrov reiterated that moscow has no such plans and intends to continue being nothing less than transparent with. the russian federation does not and cannot have any plans to invade eastern and southern ukraine we strongly believe that the rights of russians just like the rights of hungary until both kerry and the rights of ukraine you don't smoke. shoulder and pretext that the lack of any significant rights violations in crimea at the moment is thanks to the additional measures taken by the local self-defense forces to prevent what happened on my done from happening in crimea those protesters still have to compromise done in the center of european capital. there's been a lot of buzz surrounding washington's pledge to provide one billion dollars in aid to key of the ukrainian interim prime minister was in d.c. to talk business with obama as well as the heads of the i.m.f. and the world bank but despite all these promises and words of support the cash
3:18 pm
flow into kiev has stalled with the senate going into a week long recess but the u.s. is determined not to see ukraine's armed forces go hungry the obama administration said it will be providing them with. the frenzy surrounding snipers operating on my don during the peak of chaos and clashes and the reports accused the ousted ukrainian president you know which of sending in the snipers russia called for an investigation but when it leaked the opposition may have ordered the snipers to open fire many in the west dropped the subject like a hot potato in the meantime the former head of ukraine security service released the names of those who could have been responsible for the killings and kyo one of them is now the secretary of the national security and defense council the parliamentary assembly of the council of europe has not answered russia's request for an investigation into the alleged crimes committed by the opposition germany had supported the inquiry but no further steps have been taken and i said you're
3:19 pm
going to r.t. washington d.c. . back to the referendum in crimea now in moscow turned up in the center of the city to demonstrate in favor of the people's right to vote they also voiced support for the russian speaking population in the region a rival rallies also just taking place in the russian to. up until this time against crimea leaving ukraine it's called a march of peace and both gatherings to several thousand people or. so with us over the weekend for all coverage of the crimean referendum.

3:26 pm
we don't. recall the very black and white approach that the european union. to this issue in the beginning of the crisis you know either you're with us or you're both russia. was a pragmatic. reasonable path to follow the polish approach from . the european. european union didn't know what.
3:27 pm
your friend posts a photo. different from. the boss repeats the same old joke of course you. still. keep. ignoring. welcome to the kaiser report max kaiser this week kim jong un one hundred
3:28 pm
percent of the parliamentary vote in his constituency state media reports that this is an expression of the people's absolute support and profound trust in supreme leader kim jong un. single mom and lee remain loyal to him holding him in high esteem and the glorious u.s. financial markets media loyal to markets holding them in high esteem report that one hundred percent of market participants are winning because the people remain single mindedly loyal to the dow jones abundant wealth assault upon the people a new record eighty bazillion dollars. i think it's eighty trillion dollars there now or. but it might as well be eighty bazillion to let's look at what this glorious wealth creation in the united states has happened what caused the glorious jump and household wealth and one insanely good chart and who will blow it up again so the value of household real estate jumped eleven point seven percent to twenty
3:29 pm
two trillion dollars in stocks held by households skyrocketed thirty four point six percent to thirteen point nine trillion and the net worth of households and nonprofits lumped into new asli together bloomed by nine point eight trillion or fourteen percent to an all time record of eighty point seven trillion dollars driven largely by soaring stocks and home values and in a condo me that barely budged so all the values of things that the fed could drive when the economy itself not so much well i mean increased to even greater significance and degree is the amount of debt in the system so the margin debt which is the debt used to buy stocks of the new york stock exchange should a new all time high. shattering records from one thousand nine hundred seventy two thousand and seven mortgages debt shattering records bank debt shattering records global debt derivatives debt shattering all kinds of records so we have a spider's web of debt that's being created or a collateral that is less than maybe one little spider egg nevertheless you know
3:30 pm
spiders actually eat their webs and then recycle them i just learned that on facts well there's also a record amount of margin debt that's hit an all time high as well much higher than pre-collapse absolutely margin debt is skyrocketing on the new york stock exchange and of course all of this is. it is similar to what happened in two thousand and seven once it was at its peak debt saturation then there's a huge collapse and then everyone in charge will say we never saw it coming so for peterson so let's look at this chart here this is the one chart that shows you that the glorious wealth jump is about to collapse and the blue line is household that worth and the red line is so much which a system open market account and a you see the fed goes insane in two thousand and eight and then the fed goes completely insane and the last few years and then some what they talked about huxley's brave new world opiate of the masses. was this
3:31 pm
meant to be ironic or is this truly of my having crazy visions of a fictional world overlapping the fictional world of finance well as you saw from that chart it was like the fed balance sheet was rising faster and faster and they were throwing more and more at it and all they've been able to manage to do is get house prices to rise by a piddly two point three trillion dollars markets to rise by apparently you know thirty four point six percent. taking a lot of so much more i suppose the syrian hospitals where they ask you to be beamed in the head with a steel pipe to put your unconscious before surgery that's the soma of the financial liquidate being pumped into the corpse that is the economy well george carlin did say you have to be asleep to believe in the american dream so it makes sense that soma would be tied to the american dream in the american dream is that everybody could always get wealthier everybody your house everybody owns a home and you'll always be able to retire on it george carlin stole it from me
3:32 pm
like david letterman stole all my stuff too back in the eighty's well so the one person who they could blow it up again this article is positing that it could be the dallas fed president richard fisher he saw increasing signs that q.e. has overstayed its welcome and that market distortions and acting on bad incentives are becoming more pervasive fed speak for pandemic stock market metrics we're at i pop in levels he said with valuations that relied on belief in a financial fairy so he also mentioned the increase in margin debt and so here is this dallas fed president and he thinks that we need to really pull back q e even further and faster than we already are unfortunately they can't pull back. at all because it is the warm all through which all of the global economy has skirted through to the other side living in a world of financial reality we're printing money. commensurate with growth
3:33 pm
while allowing wages to collapse allowing jobs to disappear so the only thing left is afraid social unrest well if we're comparing this to north korea then of course this this president of the dallas fed richard fisher is like that human scum uncle jang who is execute. did you know it's the fed and member we're in the crash the previous crash what happened is that it was the people who were short selling who were saying this market is crap those were the people who were vilified as saying you know that they were somehow disobedient or disloyal to the market to the glorious market let's be clear about something quantitative easing is financial earwax basically it's the product of detritus that's accumulating in an instrument meant to do something of use that is
3:34 pm
the ear but it gets clogged up with ear wax and that has to be removed at some point here when the financial global markets you have the instrument of capitalism was being gummed up with the ear wax of quantitative easing when it gets removed and people finally hear what the true price signal is telling them that these things are overvalued enormously then of course the number of suicide bankers will go from twelve currently around the world to twelve hundred and you've got to ask yourself well you fill in the blanks so bloomberg did a poll and to see if americans felt wealthier because wealth was up fourteen percent last year surely everybody feels really good right well poll stock market's gains no help for most americans seventy seven percent of respondents dismissed the one hundred seventy six percent rise in the standard and poor's five hundred index since its march ninth two thousand and nine financial crisis low according to the poll taken march seventh through the tenth barely one in five or twenty percent of
3:35 pm
the market gains have made them feel more financially secure and they talked to one very disloyal person and he said i don't think there's anything real behind it said david scully forty seven a policeman in canada khaki illinois is just an artificial who sure enough most people are on the sidelines are not participating and when they do get involved they are reamed unmercifully with fees and charlatans. you feed them nonsense investments to begin with until the next collapse and then the number of people are participating in smaller and smaller and smaller and so you have this little island of folks that are manipulating things and they surround themselves like barricade themselves and they live in these bunkers and they open nobody finds them once the revolution begins and they're looking for them the other thing of course is as you mentioned kind of you're alluding to there is that the fraud has not left the system that's still with us and that's why going back to that chart the fed has to
3:36 pm
go more and more insane because they don't want to punish that fraud because you know all the member banks are the ones committing the fraud well here's another story that we've been following over the since the financial collapse and that's high frequency trading high frequency trading hails its first billionaire vincent vinney value ola the founder of virtue financial incorporated this high frequency trading first billionaire he has an impressive track record of just one losing trading day during a one thousand two hundred thirty eight trading day period how does he do it the same way other high frequency traders do it front running trades scalping countless billions and billions of fractions of pennies in the process many of the high frequency trader you know he's out there basically constructing a toll booth between him and the markets and it takes money still is money i mean the kids beneath the only as a kid in elementary school would be shaking kids' death for their milk money now he's got computers that are shaking the market down for free extortion every rates
3:37 pm
it's pure mafioso high tech style so i suppose it's great that he's not whack and guys over the head new jersey like always the prado but it's the same frickin mafia mentality the goombah he's got their buddy the billionaire the other thing is since we're comparing everything to north korea we in the west laugh a mock kim jong un for winning one hundred percent of the vote and then issuing a statement that this shows that you know absolutely. oil t. of the people in love by the people for the this supreme leader well where is the mockery when this guy has one thousand three hundred twenty eight perfect trading days when goldman sachs and j.p. morgan had perfect trading quarter after trading quarter after trading quarter where is the mockery their markets are supposed to be so predictable the ever these guys can have one hundred percent pure perfect trading days but i think the comparison to confront own is a good one and that if you look at the news from there you see that people are
3:38 pm
involved in a psychopathic cult worship of a psychopath and they're in the street crying oh we love you we love you here in america you've got beneath the goombah he's stealing billions and people on the street we love you we will be love you can juggle i mean when you go and it's the same kind of cold in north korea they worship hatred of america and wall street they worship a sure of democracy hatred of the common person hatred of egalitarianism hatred of fair markets hatred of free markets so vinnie he's a hate monger and he's made a billion dollars promoting hate and as than kim jong un is a good example you know when the. you know when the fly hits the fan not good things happen but this is the reason why he's going to become a billionaire is technically on paper because he's going to i.p.o. usually i.p.o. signal a bad time to actually buy well he's cashing out into the public domain so all the people that he does kind of parties with on this high frequency trading scam are
3:39 pm
now going to participate and the i.p.o. by making sure that the price is supported through its initial i.p.o. period and they'll dump a lot of the stock into pension funds firemen who teachers will end up owning veni the goombahs i forget the trading i.p.o. six months to when it goes i.p.o. as night follows day the price to be down fifty sixty seventy percent the people in the pension accounts of the left once again holding worthless pieces of paper and learning why it is why british are the down under. perform the market is it because the manager isn't bad with a charlatan and a gangster yeah that's right you're being ripped off just like kim jong il is ripping up his people you're being ripped off by your pension fund manager or you go and finally on this reason why he might be i.p.o. ing is there are serious investigations starting to happen in the senate that they're looking at this high frequency trading and realizing ten years too late that it's just scalping the markets and not actually not adding any wealth is just
3:40 pm
taking out wealth that's extortion and yeah of course we're going to try to i.p.o. and dump it in pension accounts quickly as possible where it'll fester and turn into a losing plus of capital losses inventing will be there on their monika with you know sir philip green smoke a cigar but it has to come up by yeah yeah everything's going to. this new line of the cake yeah look at that look at both it looked so cute yeah all right well we've got to go so states we've got to go ok dear leader. states in the second half a whole lot more. ukrainian treasures have come to our land it's a threat to russia which. for me is
3:41 pm
a small republic and russia is a huge country to defend us. the long came to an end when the first moment of cocktail was thrown at our guy he's defending the law and order and we believe that he. has never surrendered to anyone and it never will. this comes from the heart you know i've never even seen him in person for me this is the image of a hero the world's first everyone knows his name but few people ever. first spaceflights the product of good fortune or destiny. that we fail to lend he could see the ground they started throwing punches at it. was
3:42 pm
a turning point. quite often countries rich in natural resources are the poorest africa is a colony it's a colony of the big corporations it's a colony of someone's home leaders who are under the thumbs of the big corporations so they have to beg from the world bank's development of social programs goes to pay back debts all countries were drowning under the amount of debt that they did and so every year they would borrow money. and they would use that same amount of money to pay back oh this can all that money really. the wages of debts.
3:43 pm
welcome back to the kaiser report imax keyser time out of target investment banker chris whalen is the co-author of a new book out later this year called financial stability fraud confidence and the wealth of nations criswell welcome back to the kaiser replies to be here max we do in london well we were just some parents i was at a conference sponsored by the global interdependence center and the bump the false mole sorts of financial issues and i came over to london to see you fence as an old out of there was some clients and i've lived in london twice so i really enjoyed being here so we're roughly contemporaries and i stayed on wall street we would be doing deals together at this time but you're still on wall street are doing deals you've got this it's called financial stability fraud compas of all the nation so first of all as a banker that work fraud is a pretty heavy word to slip into the title of a book right so just tell me about that to begin with well if you go back to the beginning of history you know why did jesus throw the money changers out of the
3:44 pm
temple because they were using two measures and fraud is really that it's when you try and sell something to stop what it seems it's dishonesty in its most basic form if you go back to the greeks proportional requip all fair dealing each side most good value in a transaction fraud is one that doesn't happen fraud is breaking the law the law a lot a lot of deception deception which and then lit in context of securities means you know certain law breaking as it rolled eyes to the securities acts if there are three and thirty four in the sarbanes oxley another that's come along but the wall street fraud seems to be you get penalized off with a fine there's no criminal investigation. that's right that the fines on the civil side are all was much less than the profit made from the criminal activity to begin with chris so isn't fraud the business model of these banks it is today because we don't enforce the law i mean if you really. why did we have
3:45 pm
a crisis in two thousand and eight it was because of securities fraud and the regulators congress all of the g ten nations their solution to the crisis was more capital really anything but looking at to show a fraud go ahead to two thousand and eight the big question is there was a chance to crack down on fraud and reformulate and restart the clock and like they did in the going back to the thirty's after ash that there is that did not happen they excuse being that while the whole system would have gone on there where do you fit it where you come in on that debate no i think that's wrong i think dealing way you restore confidence going back to the title of our book is if you win for the rules against fraud the first part of the response to the crisis was the right one throw money at it the central banks printed money stabilize things but if you don't go on to the second piece which is restructuring and also to some extent punishing the guilty then you never give confidence back to investors that's what really happened but it was all money at a situation you had to that slippery slope of moral hazard well of course but then
3:46 pm
there's no coming back from that there's no there's no sheriff no no that's not right people misunderstand the reason is throw money at the problem is because one morning in two thousand and eight the global investment community woke up and they realized that the balance sheet was out of balance due to fraud due to fraud ok so why did they punish fraud well you do but you have to do it sequentially because if you simply allow deflation you wipe out all the equity in the economy you have nothing to build on that's what i wanted in the thirty's i want to john i want to put a stop there i want to move on to today because today we know that two major situations brewing that i want your take on what is the right one is puerto rico let's start with the trite what's going on well in detroit you have a bankruptcy obviously a very large city that doesn't need to exist anymore the reason detroit is where it is is because of years ago immigration came down the st lawrence seaway including henry ford and when they came on to the land they had to build wagons to move their goods that's why you have the auto industry in michigan very simply stated so it.
3:47 pm
doesn't need to be there anymore the city has dragged its feet restructuring and unfortunately the banks two showed up and took advantage of what was essentially an insolvent city put together what's clearly i think a fraudulent transaction where they pretended to do all sorts of off balance sheet deals to help them buy more time to make pension payments and thereby avoid default so now you have the pay groups who judge in the case so essentially ordering the city to sue the banks and saying that we're not going to settle with them that these contracts were clearly fraudulent and that they ought to be opposed and that in the longer troy is facing bankruptcy though they're already in back there in bankruptcy if the timeline is there any bankruptcy right and the next major milestone here is well it's going to be a whole series of repudiation so pension obligations debt held by banks by other financial institutions as a list of creditors max the goes on for one hundred pages ok so you made your bones on wall street for thirty years doing due diligence but this is your belly like
3:48 pm
this you look at all these documents and you figure out all the collateral and all the content liabilities so what is one of the experts here what is your prognosis for detroit what's going to happen well what's going to happen is they're going to push losses on the most of their creditors they're going to restructure they're going to get rid of about half the city because it was built for two billion people they have three quarters of a million residents now they're going to bulldoze a lot of houses and they're going to try and rationalize the place so that it works but the politics here are very very dangerous for wall street because you have a governor you have a mayor all of whom have to provide services to the city and they may not be able to do that unless everybody settles pretty quickly this year but wall street tries to wiggle their way out of these obligations one way or another saying i believe we're looking at some of your latest work that the judge in this case sealing down hard on or r.h.l. speak specifically about specifically what's going on there but what's going on is that the city had an obligation to pay credit default. swaps hundreds of millions
3:49 pm
of dollars and the judge saw a subtle but four hundred sixty five million from the city manager proposed to pay the banks to get out of these obligations and the judge said no this is one of the most veteran bankruptcy judges in the united states by the way who's no four is this someone in jefferson county where they were caught up in the fall swaps and that j.p. morgan was in there with the missile them and they they went bankrupt and ran up missing a huge sewer payment and that's right and crap we literally this movie before where you have large banks preying upon a public sector entity is probably not sophisticated enough to really understand the risk of news transaction how can we say it's a serial financial crime that's raping morgan who's a bank in charge of this one will is to actually u.b.s. in maryland so there's a serial pattern of serial offenses here yeah and again it's completely fraudulent with and again you know who is in charge is it is it eric holder is it department justice is it the f.c.c. who can step in and say you know what nothing about because think of it why should
3:50 pm
we allow a bank to prey upon a public sector entity with officials who really aren't sophisticated investors they don't have the competency to judge these transactions it's not a suitable transaction for the entity and moreover it was designed to help the city of aid a legal debt limit put in place by the state legislature so that grace right when they got into the air are very similar to agree totally fraudulent goldman sachs john paulson hedge fund manager right leadership of grace and involved in a crime to false wrought credit all swap fraud if you read the complaint filed by the city of detroit at the behest of the judge by the way the judge essentially forced the city to sue the banks and the pension funds it's pretty clear what went on here and the sad part max is that these transactions delayed the bankruptcy filing by a couple of years the city could have been much further along in getting its house in order and the pension recipients there are the real victims here because they thought that they had their. amount of money but no now the city is going to claw
3:51 pm
back those phony payments that were made because of all of the financial engineering by the banks and they're going to have much less money for their pensions going in the first half of the show i mentioned that pension funds are typically where bad debts and bad investments go to die you hire an incompetent person to manage that passion fine that's when you get them to buy into like there's a high frequency trading company that's going to go public you can do an i.p.o. you know a lot of stocks going up in a pension fund and in six months to a year for out to be down fifty or sixty percent when that high frequency trading bubble bursts and those people wonder how do we have all these losses well yeah but the other guilty parties here are the union leadership who cut a deal with the city for benefits that they knew the city couldn't afford that's the that's the other thing that nobody really focuses on well that is that is not focused on because we talk about the ready and the banks the politicians the funds through are all complicit a massive fraud we don't talk about union leaders as being part and parcel of that fraud because they claim to have cut a good deal for their members but they were the should have known that the city
3:52 pm
could never afford the deal that seemed of all the guilty parties seem like a least possible but they're just so that was about interest rates were off for second quarter the fall swaps are second because they're sold on the idea that you're hedging against interest rate rises right that there's going to be rising interest rates you need to buy this insurance you know buy the product against an interest rate rise that's right so what happens is the interest rates in fact go down and so these products because they have to meet the margin call they have to cough up more money through the end it's so how does how do you weigh that against the fact that at the same time the central banks are engineering artificially low interest rates well that's right if you were reading the paper and you were writing the city of detroit would you have been worried about interest rates rising no no especially near a banker j.p. morgan or christmas or merrill lynch and you know that the fed is engineering the lower interest rates that's right how can you and in any sane person sell ahead.
3:53 pm
against higher rates well that's exactly right near school districts in cities and towns all of whom have been victimized in this way so was ben bernanke any doubt down here yet mark carney bank of england well it is it isn't my speaking you know you know hyperbolically if i say that they are also involved in this fraud you know they're doing what they're supposed to do which is print money to make up for the stupid things that the private sector do it early should that be communicated these people that they're buying into fraudulent products the fed does have a responsibility here because if you put on their other hat as a supervisor of big banks the question is do you want your big banks to take the reputational risk of getting involved in transactions that are clearly fraudulent and where they could be subject to attack by for example governor michigan who's running for reelection this year you know this is an issue that is ripe for politics and we shouldn't allow big banks to put themselves in a position where they're going to be crucified publicly mention of the lights go off in detroit and not collecting the garbage anymore because they don't come up with a settlement imagine if this whole bankruptcy goes in the years of litigation you
3:54 pm
can almost assure yourself max that all the politicians of michigan will get involved in this yeah and then so far the pattern has been to bail out rather simply print more money so why is this going to be any different but i want to ask you something about this bailout settle for nothing and this is a big risk for the banks because every public sector client they have that did a deal like the city of detroit did if they settle for nothing you know the words if they just let detroit off the hook they're all going to want the same deal and therefore the other books the holdings that they have on their balance sheets would be marked down to zero they would have to mark them down that's right so on a percentage basis of that merrill lynch for example if you look at the percentage of their books that they hold on these things that they mark down to zero what they kind of they take on a balance sheet don't know it's probably not material to the overall company but it would still be a loss and the more interesting point is should they be doing this in the first place should they have done these deals in the first place with a pedestrian public sector client that's on sophisticated the banks so that we do whatever the government lets us do. that's right that's right you know when i was
3:55 pm
a broker you know when you get your license you also have to be aware of the blue sky laws in all the various states that's right so states have laws that are unique different than federal law that's right so wisconsin as i recall is a particularly tough state in terms of security selling and things like that to the states have the ability to act independently of the federal government to crack down on securities fraud in this case certainly absolutely and that's what may happen in michigan sure and it goes back to these these laws anyway chris whalen we got to hold you're going to be going to have you on the next show ok so stay right there this is a break precedence here so don't go away ok all right and that's going to do it for this edition of the kaiser report with me max kaiser stacy herbert like to thank our guest krista well and to stick around for the next hour author of a new book financial stability fraud and confidence and the wealth of nations if you'd like to get in touch tweet us a kaiser report. bio. an

a stop to death after police failed to keep up from my down on probation demonstrators but the russian foreign ministry released a statement today warning that could be members of the ultra nationalist far right sector that would be making their way to donetsk and lugansk from kharkov which is obviously raised tensions and fears amongst people in donetsk. at the moment that are just cracking down on how activists my husband was the first to be targeted that's many more followed last night alone dozens of pro russian activists were arrested in people who even briefly shown their faces in the media i needed to transcend their home addresses and don't have parents i leapt on the internet and posted on the right sector websites along with the calls to kill them cock of was the scene of where two people were killed last night in a standoff that involved dozens of demonstrators blockading themselves into a building and throwing appeared to be most of cocktails down on protesters and
4:05 pm
police the ukrainian interior ministry confirmed that it was the right sector that was behind these attacks the witnesses on the ground explained some of the scenes in which they witnessed last night. would you believe that there were a lot of wounded among both activists and police there was this blue minivan that appeared in the central square and pepper spray directives and then tried to scape they started chasing is but ended up being shot at from a building the building on the remarks because street is a base for gunmen from the right. sector they started shooting at us throwing molotov cocktails and gas grenades local news straight to see it was our risk was that attacked this headquarters but it's not true it's the base of the right sector radicals it's war here the chief policeman was sent from kiev and is covering these gunmen ryan o'neal of reporting in the now the ride sex a group involved in those incidents have become notorious thirty four while one

4:07 pm
the most influential groups in ukraine international law expert alexander mcqueen says it's high time this issue got more attention in europe. at this moment in time are getting worse and governments want to know about the problems they're in denial about it at some level people in the west i know that in greece for example there is a lot of concern with the way in which greek fascists runs the golden dome and have been going to here but western governments do not want to accept this fact because if they do it undermines the legitimacy of your storage of which they are supporting. with the lack of peace and stability and the rise of hard line fascists many jews are considering leaving the country now let's take a look at this swastika that was put on in the center god to door
4:08 pm
in in one of the parts in crimea which is having technical problems today but we're going to continue with that they are places of worship that are witnessing from cemeteries being vandalized it's perhaps surprising that jews now fear for their safety one rabbi told r.t. his policy here why he decided to flee his home. this synagogue is empty the rabbi is packing his office up i don't want to leave and pushed to leave because either one of my children to feel safe i want my children to be free to. speak openly where the thing go. there's there is two weeks ago a man was caught on camera painting swastikas on the door of the synagogue the message he left was chilling death to the jews it's the first time in twenty years a synagogue was vandalized as you can see the graffiti has been painted over but
4:09 pm
the police only came today to investigate the incident two weeks after it happened ever since the unrest started a number of jews have been attacked while walking on the streets of kiev there are about one hundred thousand jews living in ukraine right now but one of the country's chief rabbis is urging them to leave that says members of the right wing's forbode a party are now part of the interim government and here we fell that nobody will do anything wrong to us because we are protected under the law in criminal law nowadays there is no law i mean like you know because everything is changing so fast and i don't expect. anybody would protect the juice of innocent happens and so these ukrainian jews who do not want to leave are taking matters into their own hands self-defense training is being organized by from israeli army eat horses and security personnel. i think you need to know how to defend yourself anywhere if
4:10 pm
there are such training courses i will be happy because people need these and every place and time but none of those who participated in the training would speak on camera this man agreed but only if we covered his face but in the middle of the everyone should learn how to defend themselves given the situation that we have here we know the my down movement is nationalist former israeli soldiers who have experience who know how to act in this kind of situation and helping us to get ready for prime minister siniora has pointed out that his deputy prime minister represents the jewish community and says his government will fight against any form of fascism but the people we spoke to don't sound optimistic the always blame. to her i know that sound is not easy but the risk of stating is just too high many of ukraine's jews fear that ultra nationalist attacks will shift from synagogues to human targets paula c. r t some from awful crimea will be bringing you more on the developments in ukraine
4:11 pm
and the risks the journalists are taking the now russian reporters have come under attack from radicals and satellite providers have refused to work with r.t. over anonymous threats more on that story and many others soft to the subway.
4:12 pm
crosstalk rules in effect that means you can jump in anytime you want. thanks for staying with us here on r.t. international the people of crimea are about to head to the polls for historic vote on whether they want to remain a part of ukraine or join russia. on
4:13 pm
saturday the province held a day of silence with no political campaigning permitted the referendum was called after locals refused to recognize the new leadership in kiev and called for greater anatomy autonomy pardon me around sixty percent of people on the peninsula ethnic russians so it's widely predicted that the majority will vote to be governed from moscow here's what some international observers i expecting from sunday's ballot. will solve it as part of a graceful considering ukraine is falling apart as a state that failed to provide its citizens with basic rights the people of crimea are holding a referendum to determine their future we hope will be held within the rule of law i'm afraid any violations will have to take into consideration the people's opinion and the results of this vote evermore after not able will have their say but i expect the referendum to be positive under ukrainian law and general democratic
4:14 pm
rules this is a legitimate vote while while powers continue to argue over the situation in ukraine and the screws are being tightened on russia's the media in the country several journalists have come under attack from radicals earlier talk to my colleague a marina cosgrove about the threats reporters are facing. at the moment and we have plenty of examples the first one i'll start with is there is a big international provider and i can mention the name. they have refused to work with r.t. they have stopped in fact they claim that they had a gang of men that came in wearing masks and also they were they were carrying weapons and they said that if you don't stop working with channels broadcasting there there are satellite feeds basically our correspondents for our viewers also understand how this. works secondly there were intimidated to stop working with
4:15 pm
r.t. as well as other channels to they have apologized to r.t. and they said but they feel threatened so they can carry on any longer and then of course we have countless of reports of journalists being that's why those radicals that we've seen on my square as well there is one example of who. just because he'd. be a riot police. there we go we can see this is where he actually explains what happened to him and he said that he was frightened and beaten up because again. it's police that's just one example and then there's also a call even further with let's take a look. i have been receiving numerous threats since the rights to put me on the wanted list on their website or for a reward for my capture and within a few hours the message was reported tens of thousands of times i want to think regular people who do not support this and who over there how to shelter me from
4:16 pm

4:22 pm
cultural heritage now in ruins museums have been looted and i.q. logical sites devastated by shelling the economy has of course crumpled and more than half of all syrians have no way to make money and over sixty percent now live in poverty one damascus resident told us his young children have to work to put food on the table there you go to. me and my children has changed one hundred eighty degree and since the first days of the syrian crisis up to now that i can add that i left all i gained in my life in the destroyed region that said so i know that and now i can get my own bread i have to struggle for food on a day to day basis i used to be a construction manager now my children are working you know i have sons and daughters and i have so much money for my construction work i want my region back and twenty twelve with very little money in my pocket in my car which i still had to pay off between then and now if it wasn't for my kids working and helping me
4:23 pm
somehow i wouldn't be able to feed them i was disabled when my house was hit by mortar and destroyed my car was also damaged so i can't help my children because i can walk only with walk instead probably i look fine but i'm disabled and cannot work. thousands of radical islamists have joined the civil war as the conflict continues to escalate but the radicals they did not just come from neighbors countries from but they also came from further afield and i'm going to show you now those countries who are involved it is true thousand europeans are now fighting in syria france is the biggest source of jihadi volunteers from the e.u. with paris putting the figure at seven hundred now belgium and germany have each seen around three hundred people head for syria while the u.k. recently admitted that two hundred fifty britons have returned home from the war
4:24 pm
and now pose a significant terror threat the father of one european islamist says governments are turning a blind eye to the situation. sure created by radical islamist organizations some of them when they were out there with his wife children like my son another young sister moved up to syria we know the reasons very well even european government know this reasons some were people there were because they get dates to move up some people they move out because they're looking for them to do looking for adventures the freedom fighters all this kind of things they move up because of in the name of religion they know your reasons why you don't just move out and nobody is doing something against it did you have got a government just watching. mani's embrace of the salam the no you gunmen have reportedly opened fire on an army checkpoint in offering cairo and six soldiers two bombs were found at the scene and
4:25 pm
deceased this comes just days after another soldier was killed in an attack on an army bus the military has blamed to the muslim brotherhood which was declared a terrorist organization last year egypt has seen a rise in such attacks since islamist president mohamed morsi was ousted last year . turkey and the government riots have blocked the growth of. police used tear gas and water cannon to disperse the protesters honoring a fifteen year old boy who died on monday the victim's family say he was buying bread when he was hit by a police tear gas canister nine months ago leaving him in a coma oh prime minister everyone has defended the actions of the police then branded a terrorist. as the nazi international we have a special in-depth a ukrainian crisis but if you're watching us from the u.k.
4:26 pm
it's actually. going. the evils of inflation and private central banks don't just affect the usa a lot recently the russian ruble has gone from around thirty roubles of a dollar to thirty five yikes people in the russian media are now debating whether to go dollars or euros but the thing they forget is that all this paper money one way or another is doomed by inflation so if you have a few thousand dollars or rubles that what you do with it many people say that gold is the way to go because it has retained value for thousands of years but land has also been big demand since the dawn of time and paper money inflates into nothing a nice big chunk of the earth's surface is always worth something according to the washington post twenty eleven the u.s. social security system was forty five billion in negative cash flow so maybe it's
4:27 pm
time to invest in having some children because for most of human history your retirement package was your kids so security might not cut it for my generation and last but not least you can still buy in so guns from the one thousand eight hundred for cash what other things in your house will retain that much value in over one hundred years so maybe if you are one of the mega rich guys playing currency games you can fight inflation but for the rest of us gold land kids and samuel colt are probably the safest financial options but that's just my opinion. i used to ukrainian fascists have come to our land it's a threat to russia yes actually i'd like to address directly. i'm russian to
4:28 pm
just like you. crimea is a small republican russia is a huge country defend us. hiding behind fancy why the long came to an end when the first molotov cocktail was thrown at our guys who stood there defending the law and order we believe. there are no more laws in ukraine now. jamie has never surrendered to anyone and it never will. did not fail we can see wounded officers from the crimean branch of the good right police to spend eighty days and. trying to maintain public order that i have just let you know what that public order was like people with gunshot wounds for example this is a friend yeah he was shot in both legs there are other officers who also have
4:29 pm
gunshot wounds to their limbs and some of them have gone concussion endurance yeah i'm the father of one of those guys my son is there he's one of them i think it was an elk range shooting at police officers is valuable but even more outrageous was the order they were given to him to carry out their duties without this service guy. thank you. think of which america right sector was mounting an attack they started throwing stones at us there was a hail of stones and firebombs people had gone there with axis we tried to hold them back while they tried to provoke us twice we fell back they came forward and started throwing stones there are a lot of injured among us many people suffered injuries to their limbs.

4:31 pm
less than no time. thank you thank. you get a shower those missiles we didn't even realize we were being shot at to the first officer in the middle so there was a second officer went down after him which i was although i wasn't even standing in the first row to gamble because you feel just a beautiful you of bullets christophe's who's shields and my fingers are blown off by the pilot slowed bicycle shot it's a nasty thing is that. now they're waging an information war against those they insist we had guns and you point to how would so many of us get injured and killed if we were all armed two. thousand i keep with these composite was the priest was talking marines could guard kirstin jews inciting people against is as if we were all demons everything was against us he said and
