but corporate pesticides serving as cancer salads throughout our lives aren't the only potential dangers we are facing a new study at the edward via college of osteopathic medicine in the virginia maryland college of veterinary medicine has found a lovely lovely connection between common household chemicals and birth defects in mice work who love birth defects and mice and comic how's that come out of common i was so. terry roback research assistant professor at virginia maryland college department of biomedical sciences and path though biology told science daily that quote these chemicals are regularly used in the home hospital public spaces and swimming pools most people are exposed on a regular basis. this makes you feel all warm and tanguy inside doesn't it so let's put our values where our health lies in store watching the hogs.
7:30 am
it looks like. it's really. hard to see. what it's like you know that i got. this. week to. welcome one and all the watching the hawks i am so i roll ventura and i'm tough and while it's all right i just feel all nice and clean happy and healthy but i don't eat salads right cancer salad i kind of potatoes because they probably would not know yeah yeah sort of i mean i don't know how much more needs to be sad that the chemicals that are in our home health care products in our beauty products in are just around as things we drink water out of cups this think the chemicals in the things that are used are not tested for. before they get on
7:31 am
the shop that's the trick and this is a situation where you can say it a million times but. it's better it's really really bad i'm not sure how that can't be going to exempt i mean you know there's a how does this keep going while you keep your cable going right because you know what it curiously to do it keeps going from the classic but classic of. you know us political problems in this world which is you know lobbyist money corporate power seems to influence washington i know in the right likes to admit that but it's true last year the e.p.a. or environmental protection agency agency decided the glide slope eight which is in a round up which many people believe including the believe that the world health care is a was not a carcinogen they ruled that now they ruled this is not a carcinogen however the inspector general of the e.p.a. is now investigating possible collusion between one side and a recently retired top you'd be a positive side up that's all so so the guy who decides whether or not something
7:32 am
gets. the box gets checked to say might of might be have been in the pocket of somebody. else like this collusion and corruption is happening within the people who are supposed to keep us safe i know that's crazy it's great and you're. well i mean what here's the thing that people have to understand it doesn't mean it can't be sold in california but a lot of people know in california there's there's signs everywhere like there are chemicals used on this law and that may cause cancer or most cops birth defects so they tell people like it's being used here so you have a choice of whether to interact with those areas or abuse protect yourself. so it really just puts the morning on the product that ingredients are known by the state of california to cause cancer and birth defects and other reproductive harm it says actually according to the california department of past aside regulation life saved is sprayed on more than two hundred crocs across four million acres in california.
7:33 am
it's the most widely used herbicide well in the stands and rats were a lot of our produce so what you're eating or what you're getting and the thing is this isn't the conversation about g.m.o. as far as like as is a not or anything this is putting toxic chemicals that are on your food that then end up you can't just wash everything well i'm what i love do is it's like they say no no it's perfectly safe this guy's a plate and all that gets you spread on what a farmer sprays it as field they say right now that he has to wait to wait twelve hours before they can go back to the people i'm sorry anything that you go spray on a field that then you have to wait twelve hours can't be are going to be over near that's time that's not something healthy nor should it be put on plants that eventually end up in us well let me have the wallace let me tell you about the magical world of mice and quads tell me about mice and by sure you don't know what a quack has got all right well the chemicals that we're talking about earlier of were there for the birth defects and mice and household chemicals well the chemicals are called quaternary ammonium compounds yes those big fifty cent words
7:34 am
or quads one can find them in cleaners laundry detergent bad softener shampoo eyedrops conditioners treatments for swimming pools food preservatives and produce who more than one million pounds of these quads or peru are made in the every year in the united states one million pounds of the stuff that's chemical yes terry her back was the first author of the study and holds both a doctor a veterinary medicine degree and a ph d. perversion in maryland college of veterinary medicine said quote birth defects were seen when both males and females were exposed as well as when only one term was exposed we also observed increased birth defects in rodents for two generations after stopping exposure you know where i've heard this before of your this before agent orange look at that pesticide now has been used for military purposes that is still causing birth defects and people in in the areas that we used agent orange for a generation i was really really tough with those went. which makes it
7:35 am
a big deal when you talk about that this stuff is used in cleaners to fight you know bacteria that's what's very interesting about the use of these quads is that they're generally used to be anti-bacterial but if you let nature. in the mice that her research shows that it wasn't just they were injecting them with this stuff in their birth defects they found in the reserves that for the myers that simply using you know the squat based cleaners in the same room that the mice were in was enough to cause the birth dates of just the same room so they're looking to try to start seeing how the how the blades of these humans are if it is indeed dangerous to humans because look this stuff came out in the fifty's and sixty's were really testing a lot for toxicity the different times they did they didn't give it to us they didn't report it what it what they found. and i think there's a good one because of a pig out of that's really bad for us because apparently it's not so good to me says. there's not a lot of things the white house does these days that wins praise from across our political spectrum so when the president signed a bill into law last week that protects whistleblowers in the v.a. system and expedites the removal of problem employees it seemed like one of those
7:36 am
rare moments in the area of the law is common sense solutions the issues plaguing the v.a. for many years now namely a system that cracks down on whistleblowers and makes firing incompetent bureaucrats either impossible or fraught with astronomical legal expenses but for one ploy in the memphis v.a. the law was too little too late john higgins an air force veteran and v.a. employees father once died in a v.a. hospital due partially to neglect was fired one day before the bill signing ceremony and this isn't the first time he was fired from the memphis v.a. system either his managers tried to stack him twice in two thousand and twenty fourteen but he appealed successfully both times arguing he was being pushed out as payback for blowing the whistle and the problem sagan's has publicized are truly grave and depressing paralyzed veterans left on attended our veteran patient assaulted by staff manipulated wait times and a one million dollar fraud scheme so is sean higgins of our. fight on to improve
7:37 am
the v.a. system let's take a look and see how much protection he can actually expect from one of the president's only seemingly legislative achievements so far wow this is this is one of those horrible cases of timing when you think about writing every if it couldn't be the case i guess that would be my bros i find that i find it really strange little that may happen to let him go the day before this thing was being signed into as if they didn't know it was happening always a big surprise. i don't know i will say that straight out somebody knew and they did it on purpose this is one of those problem employees because the problem is that he points out that you are not following the law he is pointing out ways to abuse fraud against the very people that we trot out you know that politicians trot out every every every patriotic holiday and say look at how much i care about the troops look what i want to do for them as i know i signed the bill or i didn't sign the bill but i just nodded my head in agreement like the lapdogs that we are in congress when we sent them off to fight and die in wars that we should observe them
7:38 am
up to play by ear but we're not going to actually help them when they get back and we're going to make the b.s. of this like terrible system of malpractise corruption money pits you know it's ridiculous of the interviews should literally be the top of the line they should be the best hospitals in the entire country they should be on par with the number one private hospitals bar there is no excuse for that it not being high standard everyone working there being out an ethical standard even higher higgens as we don't see that this is an interesting case because you know some of this stuff is just plain laughable when you look at like what they were throwing out of a movie for example when he was fired twenty fourteen the rest of the charges he was acting acting hostile and angry in a meeting about the back of the v.a. facility and his team was working out if they had overflowing restrooms poor heating and no running water imagine being hostile i would say breathing where you can be. a little angry about. this is real
7:39 am
a little ridiculous i don't like or bureaucrats to be angry at you know your point of the hospital it's interesting to revisit the government government agencies receive overall we're going to often like to attack the character of a whistleblower rather than attack the message you know you know if they have an ulterior motive or whatever they want to be with them it's because it's pretty difficult to do that you know he gives us about your local better advocates and his congressman staff all vouching for his abilities and i'm just some crackpot who likes to cause trouble at work right you know i mean this guy was serious he had serious complaints are really good complaints the question though also is that whether these reforms by the new administration and are going to help or hurt if they're really serious do they have any teeth because it's going to have you know it's nice that you save but is it really going to be used are they just going to figure out another way to wiggle out of that as most as we have seen in most bureaucratic government systems of whistleblowers or complaints it doesn't always
7:40 am
get handled very well so it now would go right it's a this is the problem is that the administration thinks it's a cure all and republicans of course always think this cure all of what i'm going to make up they'll only find i'm ready. i guarantee you it's going to you know it might fix some things as well we got to go to break right now that will fix it but we do have to go to break all right off roger don't forget to let us know what you think about topics we've covered of facebook and twitter see our poll shows about dot com coming up our old song stone so start with the best to get a journalist russell baker the stones bottles from floyd organized crime and f.b.i. informant then the hipsters keep on coming for c.n.n. in washington are two symbols over sorry bill burton is the latest film that they would love to know. they see you don't want to see them still at the sun. rose ceremony you know. we might need. a lot of homes yet they moved money.
7:41 am
magnificent. food. to save us from people really nice and friendly and i might the foreigners feel welcome in russia. it was a very enjoyable place to be a very friendly cape told. me go through a. bunch. of people. who are very bad that happened here which of us will think will still. be a crisis in america killing thousands of people every month or so you've got people walking around the twos now to. try to. ramrod america. but it's saved
7:42 am
one of the. executive bonuses are what matter not people's health. is a slightly different approach to people's well being they think health care may be part of the package of human rights and of course they're right about that but the culture is richer. than other post the center of. the law i sit at home. you. just. have to.
7:43 am
the look i don't know that place like the thing but the quote itself was ok so. what do you investigate police officers behavior as well. l.t. drugs and what a. person is. going to be told as you can. so james ots has struck again on this thirty third birthday no less and the second undercover video from project ferret and just as many days o'keefe continues as attack on c.n.n. obsessed with russia this time however it's c.n.n.
7:44 am
rock star van jones who found himself the victim of mr caves kind of sort of not really a journalistic endeavors james if you only go after democrats who are not a journalist or an operative it's hard to hear someone del rosario has the latest on this developing story. it's been one public relations crisis after another this week for c.n.n. first the network retracted a story that trying to draw a connection between a donald trump ally and an investigation into russian funds the story had one anonymous source and in the aftermath three reporters resigned and now this on your host and political commentator van jones caught project veritas undercover camera saying this what do you think's going to happen this week do the work for. those who didn't get the look the really. the only thing. that. and jones you got me i have no idea what is a nothing burger but the video release comes less than two days after project
7:45 am
barrett tossed founder james o'keefe exposed another c.n.n. employee this one a producer with descriptive words about cnn's russia coverage i can't understand honestly. it's just like. honestly the. truth. after the first video the network released a statement saying c.n.n. stands by our medical producer jon bon a field diversity of personal opinion is what makes c.n.n. strong we welcome it and embrace it well here at r.t. we're still waiting to hear back from c.n.n. on the latest video release along with any concrete statement from the network on its retracted story the subsequent departure of three employees and attacks on its coverage of the russia trump investigation in general here's what i've been able to dig up so far late friday night c.n.n. tweeted an editor's note saying that on june twenty second c.n.n. dot com published
7:46 am
a story connecting anthony's car mucci with investigations into the russian direct investment fund that story did not meet cnn's editorial standards and has been retracted links to the story had been disabled c.n.n. apologizes to mr starr maci to which he replies c.n.n. did the right thing classy move apology accepted everyone makes mistakes moving on and while i'm sure c.n.n. would like it to be that easy it's not three days later three employees resigned c.n.n. money quoting a spokesman saying that in the aftermath of the retraction of a story published on c.n.n. dot com c.n.n. has accepted the resignation of the employees involved and while c.n.n. president jeff zucker has yet to address the story or the resignations according to the new york times citing a c.n.n. network employee who listened to the newsroom conference call and was granted an annuity to describe private remarks or said this people are trying to attack us trying to take us down our reputation is everything that is our currency and that's
7:47 am
why we have processes in place if you don't follow those procedures you don't work here period right now these attacks are coming in part from project veritas and o'keefe whose own history is muddied with lawsuits involving the techniques of his undercover work and his attacks on mainstream media he warns are not over yet neither is c.n.n.'s frequent coverage of allegations russia hacked the u.s. election because. just one day after losing three reporters to retracted russia's story the network hosted a special documentary titled the russian connection inside the attack on democracy in washington sima dollars r e o r t e. r r quarters what kind of a dish do you get when you mix in these spicy and volatile ingredients of the one nine hundred ninety s. donald trump some russian mobsters and organized crime f.b.i. informants and joseph mccarthy's infamous right hand man roy cohn who while our own sean stone recently sat down with investigative journalist and editor in chief who what why dot com russ baker to find out just how bizarre and compelling
7:48 am
a story those ingredients can make a speaker and why i've been looking into the connection between trump and organized crime for many months now and what they've discovered could maybe possibly be behind some of the more strange twists and turns we've seen taking place on capitol hill today let's take a listen cross thanks so much for coming on today and talking with me i want to get into this much bigger story than what's been called so far this you know the russia gate and the russian hacking story which is actually trumps relationship to russian mafia figures and i think this could also really be the real reason behind companies firing so i want to start by asking as far as your research and what you've been studying what are the key links that we're looking at here to to indicate that trump actually has had a relationship with the russian mob problem at about the early ninety's that's right as you know it who what why we spent months on this topic published a number of articles on it we're still trying to come to grips with that we're
7:49 am
still trying to understand what we do know is that donald trump had people in his buildings right from the beginning who had connections to organized crime initially those people were connected i would say more to the traditional italian origin organized crime but we begin to see people. and acted to various countries the former soviet union and as far back as the early ninety's moving into the building buying loads of apartments we know that he knew most of these people he dealt directly with them in some cases he would sit down with them and they pull out a pile of cash as a downpayment on one of these apartments so we know that he knew these folks we also know that as somebody involved in. property development he had to deal with the organized crime controlled local unions and we documented in our one of our articles that those relationships the lady friend the head of the concrete union
7:50 am
tied in with the gambino and what have you and she at one point the most spectacular part of their directly below trumps she even got them to put in a swimming pool in her own apartment which is pretty unusual. but so you mention the more traditional organized crime obviously where a cone is the figure who is connected to both the f.b.i. the intelligence world also the mafia it's considered a mentor to trump the eighty's. when a key fair characterised anyhow trump gets the access to locations that are essentially as we know traditionally mafia connected casinos major real estate properties in atlantic city in places like this vegas i mean does this indicate his connection to the traditional organized crime or i think it does roy cohn was extremely important to trump and was a kind of a mentor and a connector and set up all kinds of things and of course with the client privilege
7:51 am
relationship be able to sort of protect him if you want to say sort of launder a lot of those relationships so cohn very very important and for those who don't know much about him course he worked for senator joe mccarthy and so was very powerful in washington in the fifty's and had important ties as you point out to the f.b.i. and to other aspects of law enforcement and by the. the whole trump story get becomes very very interesting when you start understanding the complexities of even sorting out who's investigating the criminals who is a criminal what is a criminal the lines are very very blurred. so in the course of the early ninety's we're talking about the base of the time when russia is collapsing and as we know the soviet union very much was looted by a lot of people the various you know soros and jeffrey sachs and others that were interested in going over there and basically seen the privatization massive oligarchs pop up they have a lot of money money starts flowing into the west bank of new york in particular
7:52 am
a major source of money laundering for mafia organizations what is the clear indication this forest trump perhaps you being bailed out by some of these people you know is baker up in the early ninety's so was there is any case he was bailed out by this money to do we know it directly ties into the russian mafia to trump so we see several individuals as we start looking at them seeing where they lead to they all appear to have connections to simeon mogilevich it's called the boss of bosses the centrally considered to be sort of the godfather of they call it russian organized crime to problematical term because a lot of mark from russia and all they're from various parts of the former soviet union could because stalin or georgia could be. certainly ukraine very very important and actually in the old soviet union ukraine was the there was gangsterism back then and ukraine was a hotbed of that the the organized crime in ukraine although they imprisoned a lot of the people they also tolerate a lot of them k.g.b.
7:53 am
worked with a lot of them they needed their services frankly and then they used to going all the way back when there was a lot of pressure on the supreme soviet union to release so we had jews that was used as a cover to get a lot of these people out really some from jails they went to the west a lot of them came here to new york to parts of brooklyn brighton beach in coney island so forth set themselves up here. but in any case mogilevich. is an extremely important figure considered by some to be perhaps the most powerful. head of organized crime in the world more than anybody else and related to a very intelligent man very very capable and he got into all sorts of businesses and one of the things he was getting into pretty early on it was finance and they were looking at opportunities to get into a wall street basically and see what they could do and so you see. former scientists and mathematicians and so on from the soviet union looking at things like computerized trading and then we see people like this felix seder. who.
7:54 am
worked in a company in trump tower and became very very close with donald trump. out of a russian background and he was involved with what's called pump and dump stock schemes these at least four of the involved with russian connected people and with american it the the italian american organized crime and these families were involved that so as you mentioned before you know with the idea of the late fixator for example who was involved with for these years involved with perhaps laundering money from various oligarchs from russia he's in this very informal the same time and so as you point out it makes it very murky to understand well what is then the role of someone like that call me at the f.b.i. is he actually you know was he actually really trying to investigate trump was he basically you know that he just know too much and he was in a position where trump had to fire him as a result or what's your speculation on the motivation for getting rid of coleman well we spent a long time trying to sort out the whole dynamic of the f.b.i.'s relationship to
7:55 am
seder and to trump and this is sort of what our our our reporting so far has focused on it's the f.b.i. is the only real investigative body that can look into these things but once we learned that the f.b.i. was basically running this man inside trump tower who had his criminal connections and that he supposedly. was a very high value informant. and trying to understand the nature of that and also noticing that the f.b.i. has fought vociferously to a when he was supposed to be sentenced for his crimes they went into these secret presentation for the judge and asked for leniency due to his tremendous service to the united states we don't know exactly what that involves we certain things have been said we're not sure if they're correct but at the same time this man clearly has these connections his business partners and be a rock in to him self even in the e-mail said something about referred to one of
7:56 am
his partners as a gangster so it's all there and the f.b.i. is right in the middle of it and you know they're running this guy how were they going to ever explain what was going on and what did they know you see and then it gets very complicated because trump himself there's a real possibility that trump himself and i don't know this is maybe this is the scoop here that trump himself may well have been an f.b.i. informant. and finally today if you're having trouble sleeping and i we have news that will put your mind. or something that you as our may just successfully test it for the first time ever a powerful new. gun for a military gun or actor or a theone and although dr evil would be disappointed will either be in was an attached to a shark had it was attached to a flying apache attack helicopter and used it to hit tank from a mile away if you weren't henri assured enough it's also silent invisible to the
7:57 am
human eye and weather permitting has near perfect i am better than anti missile or firearm great but not to worry the army has made clear that although the laser gun is powerful enough to destroy a modern to anchor couple istic missile out of this guy its power can just be. only adjusted to hit humans outta this where non-lethal level where it remains unclear out how raytheon. plans to test that particular capability. sidling thank you as they always are. laser beams are the perfect show for you to. remember everyone in this world we are all beloved for so long i love you i am tired world and on top of the less people i'm watching those walks have a great day. i think david cameron was so convinced that he would. live to keep the british people
7:58 am
would get sick that he felt justified in taking the gum and i think that was irresponsible well i think he was playing russian roulette with british future because it's in there it's a new brand a couple change it's not like an old reelection unless i guess you could go to. the other. you know. our own persona. or more so although. it would. all be
7:59 am
a new. dog or it would be one school and the people living you are. absolutely the dubrovnik in venice are all fixed travel just. nations so it must be nice to live or is it. crowds of tourists disrupt the city's economic and social life in them and hopefully before this on the scene. of the. sun comes by you sometimes see them as we know as money into a school but these are not the cities try desperately not to collapse. of. the will probably go on the dole coffee cup at home in the
8:00 am
bushes up the on saabs knock up the supposed to mean a. lot of the time. is a tourist phobia fulfill identity. the stories ahead on our international russia's foreign ministry hit. potential syrian chemical attack washington seems to be creating a pretext for military intervention. also another scandal hit c.n.n. political commentator paul newcomer ridiculing the channel's russia coverage. what do you think's going to happen this week to meet with all russia. things to keep up with the really.
