all over a hearty americans do the same we are apparently better than food let's see some people you've never heard of love back to the night my president of the world bank though kate was really pretty seriously send us an e-mail. well must find so for a syrian rebel group claims that his unit was trained by the us military and his commanders it was called arms to islamic state as from an interview he gave to the receiver twenty four t.v. channel. two blasts his a chemical plant near the u.s. city of houston texas after hurricane flooding cut off power to this side. eleven civilians have been killed in afghanistan flugel province where nato helicopter hit a house thought to be hiding taliban militants that's according to the local government. and a migrant camp in central brussels it swells daily raising fears of another cal
a jungle that notorious can clear just across the border in frogs parties crew visits the new side. just a few weeks ago there were any handful of people and now as you can see from the evidence around us many more people have been using this as a base. there it's five pm here in moscow and you're watching r.t. international broadcasting to you live from moscow i'm neki erin. a former fighter from the u.s. vetted syrian rebel group has claims that his commanders told american supplied arms to islamic state is just one of the many striking claims he's made in an interview with our colleagues that russia has received a twenty four channel of who interviewed him after he fled from a u.s.
military base r.t. is that red line in my of earlier talking more. there is no local support as the us is not interested in anything except its own interests such as the ripken refugee camp which also has those fighters relatives and out some civilians conditions that are really bad children have no place to study and there is no medical care americans only support people who are in their interest i can tell you that they behave like occupiers cannot independently verify this circumstances under which the interview was taken was recorded but the now former us played it fighter who apparently fled the area along with a few dozen other rebels describes in detail how the base was operating the american and the village and instructors working with the rebels and teaching them how to operate all different kinds of weapons. for quite some time the place itself has been described as a strategic to the u.s. led coalition given its location in syria's southeastern part on the border with iraq the coalition clean that is used to fight against islamic state but on several
occasions they opened fire on pro-government forces approaching the area mind you the military base itself no longer has any direct contact with ice or territory a few months ago it was effectively cut off by the syrian army advancing against islamic state leading to could questions about the objective of the coalition maintaining the base now. the rebel defector who who what's the heads of the security service in the syrian compound also puts the stated goal into question claiming that the forces have never launched any actual operation against islamic state but a silence telling testimony my flag up even more worrying details. when we learned that our units leader was selling arms to isolate terrorists we reported it to the u.s. head of the base but after a report new measures were taken americans only ramped up the support for him striking claims made in this interview didn't it could be any truth to them well we
asked the u.s. central command and the coalition forces for comments and will be certainly providing an update or so. as we get reaction but u.s. officials have repeatedly brushed away any sorts of claims that washington may be intentionally supplying weapons to the terrorists but throughout the conflicts we've seen several occasions when the arms the u.s. had shipped into the region ended up in the wrong hands the pentagon but it's rebels worse in defecting and joining the ranks of al nusra that's the this offshoot in the region and of course they were violently handing over the arms and equipment to the new allies. isis also captured loads of ammunition and equipment and the calls from the iraqi army not to say that the coalition itself on one occasion even mistakenly dropped the rights on isis positions here's how the russian foreign ministry spokesperson reacted on the interview. daily press briefings. material the findings reveal the u.s. coalition's actions are far from what's been claimed it's not fighting terrorists
in the south of syria it's actually pursuing its own interests one of which is the creation of its own zone of wind fluence in the country devastated by war in the fight against terrorists and for that according to witnesses it uses different means even allowing the direct supply of foreign made arms to militants as happened at the base in the south of the country so again while we cannot confirm the authenticity of the claims made in that interview his testimony seems to be painting a rather grim picture of what the coalition forces may have been up to in the region. within days iraq's prime minister is expected to announce the full liberation of the city of tal afar from islamic state thought to be the last stronghold of the terror group in the north of the country but how close to pay is really is the war wary nation of speaks to people on the ground. for the better part of fourteen years iraq has burned with violence and it
has adapted following invasion and occupation by america iraq has steadily grown its military now its vost and we rock ease whether they even knew just how many soldiers are protecting them the only honest. man. we. are that could be. here is some perspective iraq's population ignoring kurdistan is roughly thirty million of those approximately nine million adult men and one in three a third of all men as soldiers.
are in session. those with walls and ceilings still intact nevertheless young men are abandoning study in favor of easy money in the police forces they get guns for a and opportunity. home. too often you'll hear those stories everywhere troops raise than jews this private armies shakedowns turf wars looting and protection rackets violence has become a currency. but surely this con cluster you might think isis will be defeated and there'll be no need for this huge on me perhaps
but as america and britain showed iraq years ago violence sometimes is a solution. i don't. know . if. the system has an a it's called a war economy whereby an entire nation adapts to live and thrive in perpetual war. from mosul iraq. federal security service the f.s.b. says it has arrested two islamic state members of a planned terror attack in moscow on september first medina conscionable has more
on the story. russia's federal security services have detained two people who allegedly were planning terrorist attacks they were detained in moscow on the moscow region one of the detainees before he was captured to manage to post a video online where he pledged himself to the islamic state terrorists and after that it was reported that he planned to conduct random assaults on people in the streets and asked for the second detainee who was also allegedly one of the i saw a terrorist a homemade explosive device was found in his home along with other components and allemands to produce one and according to russian federal security services he confessed that he was a suicide bomber now another detail of this case the two men were allegedly plotting a terrorist attack to take place on the first of september which on which this year there are two big oak asians here in the country first the start of the academic year and a bit muslim holiday. so it means that not only schools will be to morrow
filled with children and parents and other family members but also mosques and other religious sites will be quite crowded russia has already seen a horrific terrorist attack on a school and that happened on the first of september in the city of bassline back in two thousand and four so the consequences of this could have been disastrous. two explosions have rocked a chemical plants need a city of who stood in the u.s. state of texas some are calling reports on the situation. the incident has been confirmed by the company and they also warn that there may be a risk of further blasts the company issued a statement in response to the incident saying that the plant followed its hurricane preparation and had emergency plans in place however unprecedented flooding overwhelmed their primary and secondary sources of backup power they first
warned about the explosion on wednesday we have lost primary power and two sources of emergency backup power as a result we have lost critical refrigeration of the materials on site that could now explode and cause a subsequent intense fire the high water and lack of power leave us with no way to prevent it. will be. in the. hundreds living within a one point five mile radius were evacuated there are fifty seven employees at the facility that's located in a rural area without hospitals recreational areas in the vicinity the facility produces liquid organic peroxides that are used to make a plastics composites and pharmaceuticals plant has never experienced flooding like this before we're still waiting for more details but we will keep you updated.
fifteen deputies that were admitted to hospital off the inhaling fumes from the plant eight have now been released else according to the local police his twitter feed the smoke which they inhaled is believed to be a known toxic it worse and i'm very mental right attorney judy thinks residents in the surrounding area should be taking extra precautions. there's evidently toxic pollution being released to the atmosphere so people should be concerned not to breathe or expose themselves so that it's a possibly can i'm not sure the company has released a comprehensive breakdown of exactly what's getting into the atmosphere and what the chemicals are following combustion but of being potentially briefed by people. there i'd be shutting my window and i'd be trying to avoid breathing anything that's coming from the combustion taking place these kinds of toxic releases obviously are going to cause health impacts. the governor of
afghanistan's logar province says eleven afghan civilians have been confirmed killed when a nato helicopter struck a house thought to be hiding taliban fighters the taliban took position in a civilian house and fired a rocket helicopter the house on a big the taliban to leave but they didn't the helicopter took a turn came and hit this house that caused these deaths or locals however say that when no taliban fighters in the house at that time. the jet plane bombed here it bombed the house all the houses were destroyed only two or three people survived look at the house you can ask people whether the taliban were here or not. there's been no confirmation of the strike so far from nato or the u.s. led coalition but a spokesperson for the nato led mission in kabul says the reports are being investigated if confirmed the strike would be the second deadly air bombardment of afghan civilians in the last four days on monday thirteen civilians were confirmed
killed and over a dozen wounded in an airstrike on the western heritage province but government says it was targeting taliban fighters but locals again so the militants had left the area hours before the strike the two incidents demonstrate the huge risk of civilian casualties from the intensified raids on the country. well thor's he's in brussels the concerns that i callisto jungle is emerging on the secy as ever more migrants set up camp in the local paul we've got the story much more coming up after the break stay with us.
welcome back authours he's in brussels a concern to new migrants companies starting to form similar to the infamous jungle in the french port of cali which was cleared last year by fans with spock's by the hundreds of refugees now sleeping near one of the city's train stations artie shaw a deep and ski visit to the site. the remnants of a makeshift migrant camp a in down town brussels is being described as sums potentially in the next jungle a reference that that notoriously squalid camp in cali in neighboring france that was dismantled a year ago and one medical charity working here in brussels the said that just a few weeks ago there were any handful of people and now as you can see from the evidence around us many more people have been using this as a base most people are traveling here from countries like sudan and eritrea but even. people you know. because.
they did use these not play these some migrants only agreed to speak to us if we didn't shoot their whole face may be. bright future in europe but it was my fault. to hear. more difficult things. to get enough. people as the rain is coming down now here in brussels some people have moved under the trees to try and gain what little shelter they can now this new makeshift camp is just fifteen minutes away from the european commission's building and just a stone's throw away from some of the main railway stations here in brussels including the one that the euro star goes through to go to the u.k. and that's leading to fears from some people that some of the migrants he will be
so desperate to get the u.k. that they will actually try and board the trains i mean for me when i hear about things makes me makes me more concerned about what's going on in the countries where they're coming from personally makes making me worry about the fact that they try to come to the u.k. . shelter and refuge i'm more worried about walking why they're forced into a situation in the first place i'm a bit scared because i don't know. and of this before and out the day feel i don't think much that didn't oh yeah it was a no longer be done yet i didn't have to stay out in parts like that that's kind of more my worry is where the why are they here and things like about is that they're not being taken care of so what's being done by the authorities well according to the charity meds. a lot. of the situation is that there
are actually around four hundred or five hundred grams of the belgian dorothy's not really doing. that because they consider that. one to be held the issue would apply for asylum in belgium as the authorities seem to be so reluctant to do anything so i'm concerned pockmarks a million could become a new symbol of europe's refugee crisis just like cali before even ski auti brussels. we discussed the matter with frenchmen and republican party politics in jacques myard he believes the schengen free movement agreement is a key factor in making the my current crisis so difficult to cope with. it is very true that today not only shingle and but many aspects of the european construction not functioning properly shen van isn't
a port unity to improve control of our frontiers unfortunately we should restore the internal control at our borders to prevent people to smuggle in and this is why i do believe that the schengen agreement should be revisited on a more realistic bases than this utopian you know principle of having a free zone without any control at the internal front is the internal borders and not criticism of the e.u. is internal borders isn't an isolated voiced some of those behind europe's deadly terror attacks travelled freely across the continent after carrying out the atrocities a few even managed to spend weeks passing through different borders before being caught.
land borders so it shows that step by step the european states recon izing are facing really as it is and not as they have dreamed of in the past you know in the past. the united states has deployed its advanced war planes in bombing drills with south korea it comes amid a demonstration on the island of guam against u.s. military buildup there in the wake of the crisis on the korean peninsula. what many people are worried about in guam is is donald trump able to deal with north korea in a way which will not lead to the destruction or lead to further conflict in a place such as want because when they released when north korea did this missile tests they did say that they were doing it in hopes of further containing one and for people on one that is
a very frightening message because one hundred sixty thousand people here that are not in the u.s. military that are not on the bases here we are not trying to contain north korea we are we don't necessarily seek any ill will to them but it is more because of the u.s. military facilities here where the u.s. uses us as the tip of their spear and so that is why we are targeted by them tensions spikes in the region after north korea launched a missile that flew over japanese territory and landed about a thousand kilometers east of the country a un security council emergency meeting was called after that when member states urged the toughest stance on pyongyang and with some calling for more sanctions to be imposed meanwhile donald trump and the u.s. defense secretary have been sending out mixed messages on how to deal with north korea. but we're never out of america and we continue to work together and the minister and i share respond. to provide for the protection of our nation
postulation. the u.s. has been talking to north korea and pain them extortion money for twenty five years talking is not the answer for making one thing at the top of any organizations any business any nation is alignment the role of the leader is to get all their people lined up one voice and one message consistently for second place is misalignment which is reckless and dangerous and let's be very very clear that this is not the first time it's a continued stance and what we swear seen from the foremost brand in the world america is that burns need to speak with a consistent voice and the latest reaction to the crisis the chinese defense ministry spokesman said the baiting would never tolerate all chaos on its doorstep when i carry all again says keeping calm is key to solving the crisis charm is
playing a very difficult hand but playing it very well indeed they are playing a very very tricky very careful and it's a tremendous balancing act we're sitting in the middle and so far you one has to say they're doing a restrained and very good job and i think out of all of this the only player who's coming out here with any commendations of the chinese it's a very mature approach this there and there's no heated language there's no stoking up of all you you're not sure we're seeing what i would have hoped to see from america were actually seen from china. well i'll be back at the top of the hour with more news in the meantime share your thoughts on the day's stories by following us on facebook on twitter.
back in the days of course when we were still in the gold standard so everything had to make sense things no longer need to make sense max in fact they could be bizarre for a very long time here's how you can understand the bizarre decade that markets have experience since the financial crisis this is a headline from the financial times they themselves are coming around to what kaiser report has been telling you for years since the financial crisis this chart starts in two thousand and nine no coincidence because that's when the kaiser report was also born the pink line is the federal reserve balance sheet the blue line is that s. and p. five hundred as you see it's starting to take a lot more money printing to get the s. and p. five hundred to stay right the money printers are the pac-man they're eating out
all the bad debt in all the world that's thrown off by the corrupt bankers who launder criminal money they're engaged in terrorism big banks and the big banks for america big banks and friends and then those loans those debts go bad and then the central bank comes in and they buy the dead so they put them on their balance sheet and so that the central bank doesn't go bankrupt they lower rates to zero because those debts. to be rolled over all the time if they're rolled over at any interest rate that's reflects the genuine economic realities let's say three or four percent then the central banks of the world immediately declare insolvency every major bank in the world immediately declares and say so one of the by products of all this shit man again is that you've got the s. and p. five hundred plus other. parking places for cash like real estate in various cities or fine art or yachts or shadows go up wildly in price which of course can be used as collateral you give those to your bank who ends up
by proxy giving notice to the central bank to make another loan at zero percent interest rate to buy another yacht then or of the degree on me or because of that goes up again in price which gives you more collateral value so this is the ponzi scheme of ponzi schemes central bank and mabel and we've been talking about it for years for all of this the financial times probably because they're now owned by the nikkei people in japan they're willing to tell the truth now the japanese can accept the false hoods that were being published under the previous management url so you have to perform ceremonial stuff or coup. oh. oh oh oh oh well this reminds me of another thing that we have covered and that's the red queen syndrome we see in fracking this is the same thing they're fracking the wealth of the nation and it costs more in war debt creation in order to keep the bubble afloat. of course it also reminds me of the cia sort of reports on.
how you should look at the economy and the world around you that trust their propaganda not anybody else's propaganda or take on the story so remember in that cia report. you know the twenty six to twenty six thousand election that they said that the fact that r.t. covered occupy wall street shows that it was propaganda they were trying to create anti-american feel. this is this is what occupy wall street responding to fracking is another issue and that is also here we have the financial times copying us covering the story as we're covering it here the next headline max is from the wall street journal information and this is the latest red flag for you as shale we read this information here comes from the wall street journal the u.s. shell industry has had a rough few weeks with a growing number of reports suggesting that the industry is facing much more
financial trouble than many analysts had expected except for analysts who. does. so now a new report as further evidence to the notion that shale is losing its luster and a fifty dollars per barrel market with producers for going shell in favor of older wells so they turn to the wall street journal report this is the report they're talking about the wall street journal says that although although wall street has showered the shale industry with billions of dollars in capital and although that surge and although that has led to a surge in oil production shale producers by and large are still not profitable at today's prices the wall street journal says quote most producers are losing money on every barrel they pump they are
losing money on every barrel they pump you can. say it's propaganda but who best are starting to notice that they are losing money on every barrel they pump they can deny it they could talk themselves until they're blue in the face that someday they'll become profitable but right now they're still losing money on every barrel they pump more they make it up on volume. well no as we've been saying now for a few years let's just dig into this a little bit the fracking industry or shale industry is economically on buyable or inviolable which i'm not sure what is the proper usage in that cause even landed zero percent interest rates well just what happens they an energy company will be able to borrow from the central bank again the central bank will lend them a billion dollars or a billion pounds if you're in the u.k. they will then start to frack and they'll cause ecological devastation and they'll pay themselves a lot of money then after three or four years that that fracking project is no
longer generating any any energy whatsoever because the fracking wells are very short lived the bondholders who put up the money then all have bonds been sold in the very special accounts they go to zero the stocks if they're public they get hit the executives the company declared bankruptcy and the ecological devastation which is now billions of pounds of this are in the u.k. for example will be picked up by the taxpayer yet but every choir so a lot of capital a lot of water it costs for a conventional oil well oil rig cost one million dollars to drill for for a fracking one eight million so what they point out the wall street journal points out that all these oil companies are actually turning instead to all the wells that have been abandoned for fifty sixty years stuff outside of los angeles and they're only producing maybe one hundred barrels a day and that however it costs them nothing to turn on those old wells right now
they'd rather just do that because that's being extracted. just like basically the equivalent of saudi or iraqi oil fifteen bucks a barrel it costs them to take that out where you know the they're not making any money as i said the wall street journal points they're losing money on every barrel now you mention the u.k. where it's even more expensive to extract fracking well there are going to frack mostly natural gas there rather than oil but here here's total the french energy giant they're in the number one player in the north sea oil sector so here are they speaking about their latest investment. total snubs expensive u.s. shale with north sea focused deal so again. wall street journal says fracking loses money on every single barrel they produce despite all there would have been a lot of you know improvements in efficiency and extraction and all that stuff has
been great improvements but still total one of the biggest energy giants in the world says that on monday the french energy giant agreed to buy the oil and gas unit of a.p. moeller maersk its biggest purchase since one thousand nine hundred nine the seven point four five billion dollars deal including debt reinforces total footprint and conventional oil and gas assets in europe and africa u.s. shale his development over the past decade is up ended the balance in the oil market won't be part of the portfolio chief executive officer patrick poyan said shale assets were quote quite expensive and that total wasn't the best company to develop them the deal puts a value of about fifty dollars to fifty five dollars a barrel on marriage while u.s. shell he says is closer to eighty dollars a barrel so you need eighty dollars a barrel this guy who's the c.e.o. of one of the biggest oil companies in the world he says you know i i can't afford
to be political to be ideological to be take sides in some cold war my bottom line matters and i have to report shareholders and what i'm telling you is that i lose money i would lose thirty dollars a barrel he's putting the price that on us shell so why do it i'm not going to do it and he says his shareholders wouldn't be happy with him. that's why it's all so crazy that the u.s. wants to ship their energy to germany. prices that are completely on economic collapsing and germany is throwing herself into the arms of russia because that's where they get the two percent well let's go back to the actual data the money beyond any and like who's better or that countries great who live in this country who wave this flag beyond that it's just the simple facts and somebody out there might be very ideology. ideology full and you know patriotic for one country or the other might say well what does total know about us shale well they're actually
a big player already in us shell and what they say is. while total is exposed to us shale gas by its barnett assets in north texas and the utica assets in ohio it bought for two point three billion in two thousand and twelve it has the smallest presence in the shale patch among european nature majors price has so far been a deterrent to expansion again because he says quote you have to put eighty dollars a barrel assumption in the model and i'm not ready at all to acquire assets eighty dollars a barrel when you remember the beverly hillbillies the t.v. show. man named joe barely kept his family for some crude and some bubbling crude oil that is black gold texas think well in the opening credits of the t.v. show they show the beverly hills mansion and that mansion has just traded in the market and took a huge discount many many many millions of dollars in discount it's poetic justice that jed clampett the original oil baron in los angeles his mansion is getting hammered in the market so oil obviously is not working anymore the people are
firing up the old rigs that you know the airport the only actual drug and the santa monica the seals all pumps are working by those side of the highway you know they're trying to get the last drop down with they used to have this is part of the argument of peak oil they said there is the oil there is oil there is fracking oil and this guy from total the c.e.o. of one of the largest oil companies in the world says it's eighty dollars a barrel at least you need that so you can get oil but it's going to cost you more and at that price does solar does all the renewable energy does a battery power make more sense that's what's the point is that you have you need eighty dollars a barrel to get that oil right well good point good point. cracking is a. good of course some kind of. started us in europe in. the periphery over there on the sea the rain got all the way they want hear about this for like two years.
they were going to go take a break come back after the break much more what miss farside you know is a smart guy they were. bustling the dubrovnik in venice are all fixed travel destinations so it must be nice to live there or is it. crowds of tourists disrupt the city's economic and social life before the sun the celestial all such as the. sun not by him some but not as we don't mind. while the city's tried desperately not to collapse all powerful corporations collect the profit of. the supper will probably go on the
dole coffee cup at home in the bushes up the on some snuck up the supposed to mean a new. life. is a tourist phobia fulfill phone tone identity. the two thousand and eight economic crisis turn some countries into paid. these are the countries with weaker economies that needed austerity policies if you are in a situation of flow bloat even the recession austerity's a. very bad idea it doesn't work and it makes millions of people very unhappy and employed see which is the. most
a decade how good are the results. by the people. in which the wider world get people to see what. she was i mean. why are the same issues still in place who one of the consequences is to we. will for. this is the truth be consider is that the consequences are quite acceptable as a decision. welcome back to. the report time not to turn cement firestone in new york city plan a ponzi
minutes welcome back. great to be here at max great to have you match what's happening with the market is it going up some more i mean what's happening here it came in the office of the skyrocketed what's happening well you know look bad that i've had a consistent year with the markets the markets are. the market so there's got to be a reason behind that i mean the swiss national bank is one of the biggest holders of apple they have half a half a million shares of tesla the european central bank now agrees the german high court has asked the e.u. court to review their. quantitative easing program because it's monetary financing which is against the law which is what's happening in central banks are picking
winners and losers and influencing the trading in stocks stocks have become detached from economic reality i mean the past two days we've seen a three hundred point move down or volatility is still relatively low we traded below nine nine and in the vix index which we've spoken about many times you know so three hundred point move is not a lot because we're still historically near record highs because central banks are coming in and purchasing equities i think you know the whole quantitative easing the federal reserve policy the european central bank the bank of japan and the bank of england this is policy failure and mess and instead of turning it around and trying to adopt a different policy they're doubling down on a bad that is doomed to fail and this will end in a catastrophic leave bad manner well mess if a country like venezuela takes
a company an energy company and the government buys it that's col nationalization and everyone likes that and says oh my god those people are anti-capitalist they're evil but of a central bank prints money and buys back controlling interest or huge swathes of stock as in the case the swiss national bank or the bank of japan isn't that nationalization myth. yeah of course it's nationalization that they don't want to call it nationalization and you've got the european central bank has bought you know we have a chart actually that we can go to that will show you what their balance sheet looks like their balance sheet is exploded i mean it's five trillion euros in debt i mean italy has already said they're not going to repay the debt but getting back to your point of nationalization what's happening is they're buying all the corporate bonds they can buy some of these bonds are probably joke these bonds are not called junk or high yield reason it's because they have a higher probability of default to the only thing that low interest rates and we
will see zero interest rate policy in many more countries to come is that it keeps alive design zombie institutions for a longer period of time rather than dealing with the market mechanism call bankruptcy which is what should happen to businesses that don't make money they shouldn't get bailed out and get their loans for given what they should do is get wiped out and i mean that's how the capitalism system of capitalism works or what they want to do you are now because the central banks have amassed in the governments have amassed so much debt they've got to raise the euro lower the interest rate are so that they don't pay back any interest on all the debt i mean it's it's it's mathematically impossible for the united states to repay its debt. because the total amount of debt it's owed something like two hundred fifty trillion dollars and the number that they they tossed around of twenty six are two
hundred forty trillion so the number that they tossed around is twenty trillion but that number of course doesn't include the liabilities such as social security medicare medicaid all the other social welfare payment programs so when you talk about the total debt which is what we need to offer all liabilities it's a zero it's going to be impossible pay them back and especially when we have an event that makes interest rates go higher and exoticness of that in the markets have been so complacent for the past nine years central banks have been lowering people into a very very false sense of security that this is the new normal there's no volatility companies don't need to make profits and you've got a record number of unicorn companies out there look at snap chat is all you asian money sayas fifty two billion dollars and that company will never make money i mean the people have gotten used to seeing bailouts infinity and financialization and the actual what's happened doesn't mean that they can keep
going for ever i mean obviously it's going to hit a wall at some point that's why i talk about planet ponzi when it's going to hit a wall is very difficult to predict whether it will hit the wall is a certainty now while there's another rescue arm in the way that the. banks and corporations and the government are behaving and colluding with each other to prop up stock prices artificially and the mame of attempting to engine air some growth is of course been proven to be a complete dead end and not only that but the end of courage is a lot of reckless behavior and fraud take for example wells fargo they just finished paying honor a five million in fines for fraud. only opening millions of fake bank accounts for their customers they've been caught fraudulently selling customers insurance products they've just been caught fraudulently closing customer accounts they've
been caught open going into customers accounts and stealing money and then they pay a small fine for this they call moral hazard but when you have rot at the top as frederick bost you had said in his classic text of eighteen something or other you have rocked at the bottom and that they're encouraging crime so i don't see why america has a gel why do they have jails why do they lock people up for protests why are they're upset about nazis running around wildly upset about of riots and stores being set on fire and people being murdered i don't get it why are they upset if there's no rule of law in america why selectively apply only to black people match why are the white people and wells fargo people example no rule of law myth can you explain that to me. we've got a couple of things going on here is that we've discussed many times for wells fargo for example is you know one of the major shareholders is is no doubt warren buffett
and you know he's got a fair amount of connections in the financial markets and in the government so you because you reach a point where i think the last attorney general that we had holder said who you met actually in interview it's said that too many financial institutions or certain financial institutions are too connected or too big to prosecute these are too big to prosecute too connected too big to bail today to fail and too big to jail was a new attitude so it was here really big there's a. two tiered system of justice one for the elites and one for the plain american folk they're the ones who are going to be left holding the bag so when the next round of bailouts comes what's going to happen as you said gross what they're trying to. you know the theory was in keynesian economic theory like larry summers the harvard professor the x. treasury secretary who caused the credit crisis by getting rid of glass steagall
which allowed for securitizations which allowed for the credit crisis to happen with those mortgages in the mortgage fraud that was all larry summers doing with citibank and with bill clinton that's what you have to go back and look at but so what's going to happen this time is the taxpayer is going to be on the because what they want to do is they want to ban all cash that's the new program you have to keep your money in a bank account so that the government can control what you do and where you spend it and they have one hundred percent control over what you're doing because the next bell is going to be a ballot where they're going to have sanctioned deposit confiscations cyprus was the first model. banking system that did that i think you're going to see a lot of that throughout europe and then you're going to see it here in the united states will be a war on cash and will be a war to make the average american and every american pick up the tab for the next
bail out because there will be a next bailout and the taxpayers going to be on the hook for not the banks not the point zero one percent that's what we're seeing now in politics this is an incredible sideshow because if you think last week and i think there were thirty people that were killed in chicago there were mowed down on the streets but you didn't even see a minor headline to talk about the people in chicago who were killed and you didn't see any headlines about what's going on that chinese incursions into india and you didn't see any of the other global events that have been happening although they talked about where the riots down in in in charlottesville and the way the president and all that because what they want to do is they don't want to ever drain the swamp so both the republican party and the democratic party want to go back to business as usual or they can collect their facts stacks in washington. and the out of the cesspool of filled with lots of cash coming from the likes of people like george soros well you know the people in germany not taking the standing down
so they're taking the easy bait a core of her the acid buys the accumulation of junk and the continuation of ponzi konami as you describe in your book. the pond is also a nation it wasn't because again it's not a plan a ponzi plan a policy by much fires time ok the german people are not taking it down there are suggestions that this could be another french revolutionary moment another reign of terror a moment another let's take three thousand only found a class concordant to capitated the moment they are the german people are not idiots like the american people they know what money is they value a savings they value gold right so let's germany other term are people going to rise up and say enough is enough and start doing what they do in china they take these bankers down to jail. and they take carol you know i think what's going to happen i think what's going to happen and people don't realize this but germany is not going to go join and several liable for the across the get debt the problem in
southern european countries debt so in other words italy has what three trillion euros worth of debt on the books italy already has said we're not going to repay i mean so italy's debt is massive france's debt is massive spain's debt is massive and the e.c.b. is making believe that nothing is going on or what they're doing is illegal if it's not in accordance with their mandate so this is going to be up to the euro game court of justice to decide whether they want to to uphold the law to have a banking crisis or whether they want to just keep chinua to wallpaper the ponzi scheme so you know there's going to reach a point in time where either france leaves the euro italy leaves the euro. spain leads the euro but the euro won't last because unless you have a central treasury that determines these things which they don't have and they
leave it up to each country to ask you can't have a monetary union that they want with the twenty eight countries it just won't work so you know the best thing to do is short the euro against the dollar where it is right now because the european union won't be around in five years as we know it today and he made so many salmon countries twenty seven of them countries because one of them decided to blow their own heads off exactly what i've already well we've got to leave it on that note thanks so much for. the report. well it's rarely a way to be back again oh that i care way i'm going to count the days and that's going to do it for this edition of the kaiser report with me max kaiser and stays there i would like to thank our extra special guest misfires five of planet apology dot com the author of the best selling book plan a policy if you want to read just on twitter it's kaiser report you can also find on twitter plan a policy until next time by all. about
your sudden passing i've only just learned you were yourself and taken your last wrong turn. you're out caught up to us we all knew it would i tell you i'm sorry i could so i write these last words in hopes to put to rest these things that i never got off my chest. i remember when we first met my life turned on each pair. but then my feeling started to change you talked about more like it was a game still some more fun to feel those that didn't like to question our arcade and i secretly promised to never be like it said one does not leave a funeral in the same as one enters the mind gets consumed with this one different speech because there are no other takers. to claim that mainstream media has met
its maker. what holds an institution to. put themselves on a lot. to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be present. for something i want to. have to go right to the person to see what before three of them or can't believe that. i've been pushed. always in the waters. there should. be american ambassador to russia has given a series of fit well interviews on the state of u.s. russia relations it all boils down to we have a problem and russia needs to fix it does blaming the other side stand a chance as a political strategy.
now. a former fighter first syrian rebel group claims that his did it was trained by the u.s. military. to islamic state that's from an interview he gave to diversity. twenty four t.v. channel. a migrant camp in central brussels that swells daily raising fears of another kalai jungle the notorious camp cleared just across the border in france artie's crew visits the new site just a few weeks ago there were any handful of people and now as you can see from the evidence around us many more people have been using this as a base. and eleven civilians have been killed in afghanistan's logar province when
a nato helicopter hit a house or to be hiding taliban militants that's according to the local government . there that is r.t. international broadcasting to you live from the russian capital a mickey aaron good to have you with us this hour our former fighter from a u.s. vetted syrian rebel group has claims that his commanders american supplied arms to islamic state is just one of many striking claims he made in an interview with our colleagues that russia has received a twenty four channel who interviewed him after he fled from a u.s. military base. earlier told me more. yeah there is no local support as the us is not interested in anything except it's only interest such as
the ripken refugee camp also has those fighters relatives and out civilians conditions that are really bad children have no place to study and there is no medical care americans are supposed people who are in their interest i can tell you what they behave like. first of all it should be pointed out that we cannot independently verify the circumstances under which the interview was recorded but this now former us that is quite who apparently fled the military base along with the view doesn't rubbled describes in detail how it operates in the america and the operators and instructors working with the rubbles and they have been training them how to see deal how to operate with all different kinds of weapons for quite some time the place itself has been perceived as strategic to the u.s. led coalition given its location in serious. areas along with the border with iraq the coalition claimed the base was used to fight against islamic states but on
several occasions the coalition opened fire on the pro-government forces who were approaching the area mind the military base itself no longer has any direct contact with the still controlled areas a few months ago it was effectively cut off by the syrian army making advances against islamic states leading to questions about the objective of the coalition maintaining the base now our side are salim the rebel. the base the rebel the fact he was the heads of the security services the syrian compounds he also puts the state is going question claiming that the facts its forces have never launched any actual operation against the terrorists but asylums testimony flared up even more worrying details. when we learned that our unit's leader was selling arms to isolate terrorists we reported it to the u.s. head of the base but after a report no measures were taken americans only ramped up their support for him we asked the u.s. central command the u.s. coalition forces for a comment and we will certainly provide an update as soon as we have any sort of
response so far u.s. officials have brushed away any sorts of claims that washington might be intentionally sending weapons to terrorists but throughout the conflicts we've seen several occasions when the arms the u.s. had ships into the regions ended up in the wrong hands the pentagon bulls were seen defecting and joining the ranks of al nusra that's the this offshoot in the region and of course they were willingly handing over their weapons and the equipment and the arms to their new lives isis also captured loads of munition loads of armored vehicles from the iraqi forces not to say that the coalition itself on one occasion even mistakenly dropped the ammunition on right on isis positions his house the russian foreign ministry spokesperson reacts it's on the interview as her daily press briefing material the findings reveal the u.s. coalition's actions are far from what's been claimed that it's not fighting terrorists in the south of syria it's actually pursuing its own interests one of
which is the creation of its own zone of wind fluence in the country devastated by war in the fight against terrorists and for that according to witnesses it uses different means even allowing the direct supply of foreign made arms to militants as happened at the base in the south of the country so again while we cannot independently verify the authenticity of the claims made by the rebel defector his testimony paints a rather grim picture of what the coalition forces in the area in the region may have been up to. let's discuss this further now in cross live to our guest political commentator john why it's mr y. it's always good to have you on the program now as we've just heard this that testimony of a former syrian rebel do you think what he's saying is plausible. well it's certainly possible because if true this kind of activity is absolutely nothing
new here the u.s. is concerned. that u.s. history throws up the fact that the u.s. was providing covert support for the commuter route in the late one nine hundred seventy s. after they were kicked out of vietnam across the border into thailand by the vietnamese military forces they also provided support for contra gross who were fighting to soviet leftist governments in nicaragua and el salvador and central america and of course we provided. support for the mujahideen in afghanistan then into need to so this is nothing new so it certainly is possible and what it does do is it an extra dimension to the u.s. here strakes as it were conducted against proceeding government forces as they are pushed back in june of this year suggesting that rather than more to be teed by a desire to protect saw called moderate rebels that the u.s. was supporting that team they were carried though with the desire to conceal the activities that have been described by the syrian rebel defector regarding
providing arms to isis and other selfie jihadi groups now the claim made by the ex rebel in this interview is that the conditions in u.s. banks refugee camps offer once a better word dire why could that be. because the us is not really interested in the welfare of the city of people i contend they have never been interested in the welfare of the city of people the city people are being used as a proxy and is it just a fixation for a u.s. presence in syria with its own head to morning. in maine so it's absolutely no surprise that conditions in these refugee camps where the u.s. has a presence have been sued diaf the say they've just been using the city of people as a pawn in their game. do you think that this testimony as they shed any light about the aims of the u.s. led coalition in the region in general. well absolutely i mean we nor
that regime change in damascus was the overrating objective of the u.s. over the last few years for the boat of this conflict which has been raging over six years and there is approaching at least it's pushed isis stage and the fact that the us presence in the country from the beginning or up until know is illegal under international law we don't know what the objectives are going forward some of us to hope and trumps into the white house when he made noises about refocusing a u.s. air force and bleak recalibrating u.s. air force in the region to fighting isis but we just don't know we know that the cia. program or funneling weapons through various rebel groups but we just don't know exactly what the objectives of the u.s. are going forward at the aspen security conference in july when asked by a washington post reporter if u.s. forces reach the in the country once isis was defeated a u.s.
general says we had one bad day away from the russians asking why are you still in syria and that's a question that should be asked no why are the us in syria to be ok mr john lifeless will come and say thank you for your time. not the same at media conference russia's foreign minister ministry spokesperson also expressed support for lebanon's decision to allow surrounded to allow islamic state fighters to flee the country however the u.s. has moved threatening to bomb any eisel convoy is moving out of lebanon when i see that caleb maupin now joins us live to discuss this why has the u.s. reacted so furiously to lebanon's decision well that's a very interesting question now recently the government of lebanon and hezbollah conducted terror operations on their border with syria essentially trying to destroy the terrorists in their country now they made an agreement of sorts with
the terrorists allowing them to withdraw from occupied territories now there was quite a response from washington. still is a global threat relocates interests from one place to another for someone else to deal with is no lasting solution. now after that we then saw the coalition air strike the road that the convoy was departing on they actually destroyed a bridge that the convoy was intending to cross and from there we heard some very heated accusations against both russia and damascus let's take a listen. russian improve the words ring hollow where the can deals with and allow us to transit their control now this is very odd because we heard a similar and saw a similar action taken by the syrian kurds part of the u.s. led coalition they created a corridor and allowed isis forces safe passage let's take
a listen to that. during the final push for the city on friday a convoy of fighters from the city to the north. civilians were observed in the convoy intermingled with fighters. now we also recently heard in a rocky commander call for a similar thing when speaking about operations in iraq he said quote i believe in a corridor or so there seems to be a bit of a double standard here when it comes to battlefield operations against ice still a lot of heated words are being exchanged but it seems like these kind of agreements have gone on before. thank you philip that's a date that's not the kind of openness speaking to us live from new york. within days iraq's prime minister is expected to announce the full liberation of the city of tal afar from islamic state the last stronghold of the terror group in the north of the country but how close to peace really is the war wary nation speaks to
people on the ground. for the better part of fourteen years iraq has burned with violence and it has adapted following invasion and occupation by america iraq has steadily grown its military now its vost and we asked iraqis whether they even knew just how many soldiers are protecting them documenting. the. man. he is some perspective iraq's population ignoring kurdistan is roughly thirty million of the approximately nine million men and
in iraq but it's seen better days just like everything else in the city here's the kicker though classes are in session. those with walls and ceilings still intact nevertheless young men are abandoning study in favor of easy money in the police forces they get guns. and opportunity. too often you'll hear those stories everywhere troops raise than jews this private armies shakedowns turf wars and protection rackets violence has become a currency. but chewing this con cluster you might think
isis will be defeated and there'll be no need for this huge on me perhaps so but america and britain show iraq fourteen years ago violence sometimes a city. not. in. the head at night come a set on. the system as a name it's called a war economy whereby an entire nation adapts to live and thrive in. guys do you have. for iraq. russia's federal security service the f.s.b. says it has arrested two islamic state members that
a planned terror attack in moscow on september the first medina cancian of a has the story russia's federal security services have detained two people who allegedly were planning terrorist attacks they were detained in moscow on the moscow region one of the detainees before he was captured to manage to post a video online where he pledged himself to the islamic state terrorist and after that it was reported that he planned to conduct random assaults on people in the streets and asked for the second detainee who was also allegedly one of the i saw a terrorist a homemade explosive device was found in his home along with other components and allemands to produce one and according to russian federal security services he confessed that he was a suicide bomber now another detail of this case the two men were allegedly plotting a terrorist attack to take place on the first of september which on which this here
there are two big oak asians here in the country first the start of the academic year and a bit muslim holiday. so it means that not only schools will be to morrow filled with children and parents and other family members but also mosques and other religious sites will be quite crowded russia has already seen a horrific terrorist attack on a school and that happened on the first of september in the city of bassline back in two thousand and four so the consequences of this could have been disastrous. two explosions at a chemical plant in texas the mid flooding caused by hurricane harvey we've got more on other stories after the break.
ride. welcome back the government of afghanistan's logo proper and says eleven afghan civilians have been confirmed killed when a nato how they called to strike a house thought to be hiding taliban fighters. it's position in a civilian house. the house big taliban to leave but they didn't medical to look at. this house the. locals however say there were no taliban fighters in the house at that time. the jetplane here. all the houses were destroyed only two or three people survived look at that you can ask people whether they're telling you or not well there's been no confirmation of the strike so far from nato all the u.s. led coalition but
a spokesperson for the nato led mission in kabul says the reports are being investigated it confirms the strike would be the second deadly bombardment of afghan civilians in the last four days on monday thirteen civilians were confirmed killed and over a dozen wounded in an airstrike on the western herat province the government says it was targeting taliban fighters that locals again say the militants have left the area hours before the strike the two incidents demonstrate the huge risk of civilian casualties from the intensified raids on the country. two explosions have rocked a chemical plants near the city of houston in the u.s. state of texas the mirror called reports on the situation there the incident has been confirmed by the company and they also warn that there may be a risk of further blasts the company issued a statement in response to the incident saying that the plant followed its
hurricane preparation and had emergency plans in place however unprecedented flooding overwhelmed their primary and secondary sources of backup power the first warned about the explosion on wednesday we have lost primary power and two sources of emergency backup power as a result we have lost critical refrigeration of the materials on. right there could now explode and cause a subsequent intense fire the high water and lack of power leave us with no way to prevent a. rabble. that is now. in the. hundreds living within a one point five mile radius were evacuated there are fifty seven employees at the facility that's located in a rural area without hospitals recreational areas in the vicinity the facility produces liquid organic peroxides that are used to make a plastics composites and pharmaceuticals plant has never experienced flooding like
this before we're still waiting for more details but we will keep you updated. all fifteen deputies that were admitted to hospital after inhaling fumes from the plant have now been released as according to the local police his twitter feed the smoke which they inhaled is believed to be a nontoxic irritant however energy policy expert malcolm grimston says the chemicals in question are highly volatile and more explosions could take place. there has been quite a lot of research on these chemicals they've been used for many years they're a van to drug problem if you like is that they are a molecule that force a plant very easily that then causes more of them to fall apart a match when you can get into a situation of either burning very very strongly or exploding and that is what we will see i'm sure with the with the situation that we face at the moment i suspect that we will be seeing isolation of this we might be lucky because of course there
is an awful lot of water on the plant that's been the problem because it's knocked out the backup power supply but it also means there's a lot of water in the situation barratry plea will have an effect on damping down the fires that we expect but it but my instincts are that we haven't seen the worst of this yet. or pharisees in brussels are concerned a new migrant camp is starting to form similar to the infamous jungle in the french port of cali which was cleared last year their fears were sparked by the hundreds of refugees now sleeping near one of the city's train stations and artie shaw the dubin ski visited the site the remnants of a makeshift migrant camp a in down town brussels it's being described as sums potentially the next jungle a reference to that new tourist least. in cali in the france that was dismantled a year ago and one medical charity working here in brussels the said that just
a few weeks ago there were any handful of people and now as you can see from the evidence around us many more people have been using this as a baby. most people are traveling here from countries like sit down and eritrea but you can help people you know. because people who stay here. know how they did use is not play these some migrants only agreed to speak to us if we didn't shoot their whole face i thought it may be i got a bright future in europe but no it was my fault. arrived here the first with more difficult things in it difficult to survive. sometimes to get in a foot to foot. the people as the rain is coming down now here in brussels some people have moved under the trees to try and gain what little shelter they can now
this new makeshift camp is just fifteen minutes away from the european commission's building and just a stone's throw away from some of the main railway stations here in brussels including the one that the euro still goes through to go to the u.k. and that's leading to fears from some people that some of the migrants here we be so desperate to get to the u.k. that they will actually try and board the trains i mean for me when i hear about things like that it makes me wonder makes me more concerned about what's going on than the countries where they're coming from personally makes making me worry about the fact that they try to come to the u.k. for shelter and refuge i'm worried about walking why they're forced into a situation in the first place i'm a bit scared because i don't know. and of the disc people and the owd they feel i don't think. it's really no
longer be done yet i don't have to stay out in parks and live like that that's kind of more my worry is where the why are they here and things like about. is that they're not being taken care of so what's being done by the authorities well according to the charity. not a lot. of the situation is that there are actually around four hundred or five hundred migrants from the belgian story to not really doing anything to grimm's it because they consider that. migrants want to be held the issue would apply for asylum in belgium as the authorities seem to be so reluctant to do anything some concerned pockmarks a million could become a new symbol of europe's refugee crisis just like before even ski altie brussels. will have your say on the day stories by following us on facebook
and twitter and on the back at the top of the morning news. welcome to the wonderful world of blood donation i come here every three weeks to get my transfusion to be specific i receive immunoglobulin that my body gets and supporters that i cannot produce itself around the world giving blood is seen as a symbol of generosity no one does this because it helps people it's just that one of the side effects is that it. applies more burn for it put the money on your car immediately you don't have all plasma based drugs today come from private companies and are produced from paid plasma as well as. you know a motor car computer what are the risks of
twenty years ago i started going out to the desert like we're doing right now. to bring water to people. because the people that are. for these people so they risk their lives crossing of the desert or the mountains or the ocean where other cities. there's a wall where there's no cities there's no wall and that's where people cross and that's where people die every summer more people die because of the wall that exist right now and the entire history of the berlin wall.
and you can see this is part of operation gatekeeper one nine hundred ninety four and as we walk to the end right here just on the bottom of this little hill that's the the a wall that was george bush and if you look further down there's no wall. now is out of doubt most of the people in the united states do not want the wall all of the people in mexico do not want the wall and i guarantee you mexico is not going to pay one penny for their wall because the wall this is stop people the wall kills people. so if trump builds what he wants to build it'll be a little longer a little higher it'll just take a little longer to cross but it's not going to stop anybody. if you're lucky of course. you can see that somebody was walking through here there's footprints right here.
we put out maybe two or three thousand gallons every summer and i would say maybe three hundred of them or use another three hundred or sabotaged broken and and then some are just left out there maybe an animal or nobody ever uses them but as long as one of them is using to save one person's life. so we don't try to hide the bottles so we try to. leave a bottle right here because what the person will do is oftentimes we're going to wait right here because of cars going to come later on so the main way to do it in the shade or in a teaser brush because they realize there's a border patrol coming through here to leave it in a spot that it's clearly visible that way here. just like that. the situation now is going really bad because a trump where you have all these hate crimes in attacks on people and and it's
really sad. so now we have more volunteers than ever more donations because people are very mad people do not want donald trump. oftentimes behind those big rocks up there they're sleeping bags and clothes because they this will hide all the way. he says he wants to build a wall congress doesn't want him to build the wall the people of the united states do not want a wall there's already a wall that covers a third of the border but i believe he will get a little bit of a wall built in addition to what already exists and then he's going to stop one because he didn't they don't have the money for it and to because there's no need for that wall. so this. is what the. liberals are leaving out for him
they're leaving food and water. and before these bleeding heart liberals has started leaving water and stuff no more gold so that they would only make it in a couple of miles before they ran out of water and the be sitting on the side of the road waiting to be picked up because they couldn't go any farther but now they know there's water along the whole way well if they didn't encourage him then they wouldn't be people coming over but they play the the pity card you know where it's like or where saving lives were helping were. helping in two of the biggest illegal activities in the country. human smuggling and dope smuggling.
looks like they had to leave in a hurry and. the animals got to it. that night. when he got there he was going to have a party of. confederates. because he realized he was as close to a road probably or a car down and just took off so his brother last night there was this trash everywhere. you don't see any humanitarians doing this because of. this political correct. to go. to a. mexican prison and want to do it in
they don't want you there and they don't want here and that's the feeling and. i'm. very important because if we have a group of congressmen or is it any good for peace order for veterans and we're very excited that we're going to be able to talk to the people that are introducing legislation there that they can get as long as dollars maybe push the president to
write an executive. everybody. and i'm part of a. list of the stories also. for our fellow americans congress and the american people we live. in this. morning i just want to go home. i feel that the u.s. might have the shape of the united states to kick out that stuff just. like. everybody. said that. there are
