tv The World According to Jesse RT October 27, 2017 7:29pm-8:01pm EDT
living then will ever forget but do you remember what day of the week it was nine eleven was a tuesday november twenty two one thousand nine hundred sixty three was a friday and here in the east the news came late enough in the school day that they didn't tell us but on the way home the kids on the school bus all knew our boy scout meeting that night was cancelled and for the next several days we stared at black and white t.v. as world leaders marched down pennsylvania avenue to charles de gaulle was easy to spot because he was so tall the little boy saluted this weekend thousands of pages previously redacted will finally be released there will be some pictures i would rather not look at and the world series will continue as life goes on. that's the big picture if you missed any part of this week's show or if you'd like to share it we're at youtube dot com slash the big picture our t.v.
and i'm on twitter at holland quick remember our deal if you follow me i'll follow you thanks for watching and question more. i've got to do just that if you're watching our show. for decades the american middle class has been railroaded by washington politics. big body corporate interests that's thrown down a lot of boys that's how it is in the news culture in this country now that's where
i come in. i mean it's still fun r.t.u. america i'll make sure you don't get railroad you'll get the straight talk in the great new. questionable. just see. what. the world. is. the world according to shoes. if you've been tuning in then you know this month we took the world according to jesse to aspen colorado today we're covering space and technology but first the governor joins me now from minnesota to talk about the u.s. government's plans to militarize space he brings you down for all you out there should. the show starts narrow. the war. years. it's been seventy years since
the united states military last added a uniform service with the creation of the air force after world war two but now congress wants to change that. the house of representatives just passed legislation under the national defense authorization act that would direct the department of defense to create a new space corps the agency will operate under the umbrella of the air force if passed by the senate we may soon see war in space gov the u.s. military depends on space for satellite g.p.s. and weather information but do we really need to militarize it. well in a perfect world i'd like to say no you know i really think that it's detrimental that we can't go out there without militarizing space here's the problem as i see it it's one thing to go out in space like star trek you know we've all seen star trek where you go in from world the world in where no man has gone before because
you might run into the clay non-user you might run into some entity out there in space but what i see the problem being is we're going to use space to wage war back out ourselves whoever controls space will control the earth or could likely have that capability that's scary weapon should not be taken in space that can fire back towards earth i think that's asinine and insane and as a world we shouldn't allow that to happen space should be for exploiter exploration and for taking man as they say in star trek where we've never been before it shouldn't be used to wage war but the fact is what is reality you can damn well bet we will get weapons in space and who knows what the world will be
like van all right in one thousand nine hundred three president reagan proposed the creation of a strategic defense initiative a star wars program basically a space based missile defense system now do you think this kind of defense system should be a. out in space. i don't know you know is there a way to deploy it on the ground rather than space i would much rather see it deployed here on earth than to be put up in space and deployed up there because it's going to be like cancer once you get the first weapon out there it's going to spread like cancer then all of space is going to turn into nothing but a weapons system it can't be good for mankind for that to happen because we can't trust ourselves that we won't destroy ourselves with it not some space alien or the clay non's. all right well if the arms race on earth isn't bad enough nations are now starting to weaponize space while it's illegal to do so under the outers outer
space treaty of one nine hundred sixty seven government are getting creative china for example has experimented with a satellite containing a robotic arm officially the arm will be used to pick up space debris on officially it could also be used to kidnap anime satellites meanwhile the united states military has also developed weapons the first space throne now its official purpose of course is a very usable space craft that could carry payloads into space but on officially it could one day be used as a fighter jet in space and of course russia has its own suspected space weapon as well dubbed the kamikaze which can cozy up to a satellite and destroy or disable it now if war is a profitable racket governor then who is going to profit from war in space. well version of the same people probably that profit from war down here war profiteers
are war profiteers regardless of where the war is i'm sure halliburton no get a foothold up there i mean they have profited unbelievable through the these ridiculous wars we've fought in dick cheney's. worse so much money now with his halliburton stock scepter leading us into war for his own personal gain are you kidding me the same people the same organizations that are war profiteers down here on earth you can bet they will likewise be war profiteers up in space war profiteers know no boundaries i don't think that's i can about profit with the space program already being so expensive how much will militarize space costs for taxpayers and how much of that is going to be a hit on the economy. who knows i mean you're gone beyond bergy to what i can tell you you know i don't know how much it'll cost look at what the defense bill is here right now only we shouldn't call it
a defense bill we should call it what it truly is a war bill like dennis kucinich and i a both agreed upon should not be the department of defense should be the department of war because that's what they do is wage war and unfortunately now they're going to look at space as possibly the next or new battlefield i'll tell you you know it makes me worry man's biggest enemy is him self exactly and gov by the way this may not be the frontier where we see actual physical war for a while it could also be a place where nations attack another nations satellite communication systems. oh yeah i mean it's such a limitless you know it could be a war of cyberspace war a computer based war it could be a war of thought on multiple multiple fronts when you're dealing with space why can't we you know go up there with a flag with a p. symbol on it make everybody salute that you know that wouldn't be as controversial
as cap or nick a flag would have peace symbol on it. as a soldier governor do you think it's a viable if you attack another nation communications offense. is it viable certainly in war there's an old cliche regime anything goes in war you know it's he who is left standing at the end wins doesn't matter how you end up standing at the end there are no rules govern our war has been an engine of progress do you think that maybe having weapons in space will give a push for space exploration. i don't know you'd have to talk to them about that i think that the basic concept of putting weapons in space is wrong and bad i mean we can't even control our weapons down here on earth we're now going to put them up in space and who's going
to be in charge of all that i mean we had a president shoot rockets into syria there was no declaration of war the united states has never declared war on syria yet we fired rockets in there right and they try to tell us it's for peace i've never met a rocket for peace they blow up and kill people now if we can do that arbitrarily if a president decides he wants to pump fifty rockets into syria what's going to stop that same president from using some type of technology from outer space if he or she gets upset or over some i think all weapons in space can only lead to disaster well leading into the next question do you think that war in space is inevitable. i don't know if it's inevitable but if man's involved it might be you know it just seems inevitable that we're always going to go to war nothing is ever
accomplished really by war yet we keep doing it over and over isn't that the definition of insanity doing the same. same thing over and over and over again in hopes of getting a different result well war is insanity because we do it over and over again with the same old result nothing we rely more and more on technology during this time in history battle robots remote control tank auto turrets as a man of military do you find this trend worrying or how. well it's certainly helpful if it can keep people out of a lot of amun out of you know the fact of danger if you can keep people out of danger that's a good thing but like everything we as man will abuse it when you have a good thing what's the first thing we do abuse it so when you come up with a good defense mechanism at some point it will be used off and sadly it will no
longer be used for defense and like dennis christian it's said so wonderfully i was a third string quarterback in high school but i still knew well the difference between off and some defense all right there are reports that the cia and the pentagon work together with hollywood and i actually know this because i have friends who are writers they definitely consult with people in the government to write accurately do you think that hollywood is going to help spur more desires to have a military and forth in space with all the sites i movies i don't know i don't know what hollywood will do if they've already been infiltrated they can't they can't do a motion picture without clearing it through our government otherwise the government won't allow them access to military things that they need for their film so it's a system of bribery that's going on it's a system of extortion of the government against hollywood and it's also counters our free speech in first amendment when they're interfering like that you don't
have free speech and first amendment rights in that particular situation so. call me paranoid but i never trust the government always remember governments made up of people and people can be evil all right governor it's time for a break when we return with the town with jim cantrell theo and co-founder of vector space systems will be right back. yes. i do not know if the russian state hacked into john podesta scheme ailes and gave
them to wiki leaks but i do know barack obama's director of national intelligence has not provided credible to support his claims of russia i also know he perjured himself in a senate hearing three months before the revelations provided by edward snowden he denied to be n.s.a. was carrying out wholesale surveillance of the us. the hyperventilating corporate media has once again proved to be an echo for government claims that cannot be verified you would have thought they would have learned something after serving as george w. bush's useful idiots in the lead up to the invasion of iraq. it is vitally important that the press remains rooted in a fact based universe especially when we enter an era when truth and fiction are becoming indistinguishable.
if you closely followed expediential street it looks like the tales of the tributes would be analyzed in this game from the bottom sit. up with the players like you not i got. the please. please please. please please. please. please i'm a trial lawyer i've spent countless hours poring through documents that tell the story about the ugly side of. corporate media written uses to talk about these are not. i'm going to paint a clear picture about how disturbing council blood former conduct is because mom these are stories that you know in no uncertain terms my pepto you're close to the
american only question. oh lord. yes. and asked then we sat down with jim cantrell c.e.o. of vector space systems to learn all about the next frontier jim was on the founding teams of iran must face x. and the moon mining company moon express he has also worked with nasa take a look at our conversation jim you're younger than i am how can you be so involved in the aerospace industry at your age age is a relative thing jesse so i never really actually wanted to be in the space industry the only thing i ever knew i wanted to do for sure with my life was to race cars so during college i bumped into a poster in the hallway nasa had a program where you could help design space a sims go to mars and it was just a just a class so that led me into a job with the french space agency eventually and i worked on
a soviet french mars mission back in the late eighty's and met a lot of famous people like carl sagan yeah and i became a bit of a soviet expert in when the soviet union dissolved in one thousand nine hundred one i was actually there i knew my program was done i came back to the u.s. and was considered a bit of a persona non-grata because i'd worked with the french and the soviets and then i then i got recruited by our intelligence agencies to go back into russia put money in to stop the brain drain in the in the materials that were being sold with the koreans and the and the iranians and all these rogue nations now the united states government has gotten out of the aerospace industry and basically turned it over to the private sector. is that good well you know the private sector has a motivation of doing things and making money at it which is an inherently understandable motivation i would submit to you the government doesn't have those same understandable motivations furthermore it takes your money and my money as
taxpayers and misuses it so in my view the military industrial complex and nasa is kind of part of the same thing has become an inefficient use of our taxpayer money because it resembles more the soviet economic system leave the russians gave up and us they're still holding dearly on to this this economic model five year plans the commercial space industry is making real actual progress in the world we're producing a living breathing cloud imaging clouds of the earth with commercial satellites and in fact even the d.o.d. is using these to monitor what's going on in north korea that's come out in the news where they've used planet labs imagery with the private sector isn't this isn't one of the benefits that this opens up space exploration to people outside of the government makes it more accessible to everybody yeah i think that's a very powerful thing to have happen because now we have more transparency and it's not just the government that's controlling what's done in space private citizens are involved corporations are involved now governments can't hide from their
citizens citizens can hide from the governments from each other governments from governments transparency is always been something the tended to bring a lot more stability to our human societies i think it's a force for good how about a little hypothetical let's look into the crystal ball what do you see five to ten years out on the horizon for us i think you will see the first man on mars or woman on mars whichever it may be or first couple on mars be private citizens and representatives of the government what are we talking about here a decade or last technology is there the money is there the will to get it done is there and it's happening to go to mothers go to mars oh no stopping us and out. once we reach mars and once we colonize mars the most famous human being in all of history with the first one born there so we have the international space treaty is that going to be honored or are there going to be weapons in space so there's there
is a treaty called the outer space treaty i believe in one thousand nine hundred sixty seven and it defined essentially a couple of things one national sovereignty stops at one hundred kilometers number two all signatories agree not to put weapons in space now at that point in time they were thinking nuclear weapons so that then you have to ask yourself is is warfare itself in space like destroying other people's satellites the equivalent of a weapon because it's not quite nuclear weapons in light of the private sector going into space now what's to stop a war from occurring in space the reality is there are weapons going into space now the chinese destroyed one of their own satellites in two thousand and seven january two thousand and seven we did a experiment where we show we could do the same thing with an s.m. three several years later those are all weapons in space examples and so you could take the argument that one side does of the other side has to do it it's a big problem that we don't know how to solve can the space speed used as the place to fire back at earth absolutely so i'm going to suggest to you that space is going
to be a lot like the american frontier was that wars will be fought there over over the property over the over the territory over the resources over the prestige over the well man itself hasn't grown beyond man not my experience the wild west you mean it's going to be like bat masterson and wyatt earp and the fastest draw is going to win out in space that's what it's going to be like the first real settlers of this country were representatives of the english court they were actually merchants that came here my ancestors were merchants in the early sixty's hundreds that came at the same time of the pilgrims they came here searching wealth and freedom and those are going to be the people to go out there to stablished. the first presence there and the war will follow because humans are part of that. give me a positive give me something my viewers can look forward to and have a good outlook on the future so number one the most important human achievement of
all history i believe will be the first human born off of this planet that represents in terms of our evolution of our biology the most masterful accomplishment that we have made forget about cell phones forget about nuclear weapons forget about all those things you have a rocket you have whatever it is you're going to take into space. what type of approval do you need to do this and how much in advance do you have to gold to get that approval so to give the original approvals it's like a year but a year ahead of time to see if you're landing now or planning you've got a plan a year ahead of time with all of these launch and the each launch you know takes weeks sure typically since we're talking about launching with my company five hundred launches a year or trying to change the process so they they balk approve our our individual launches so yeah the coolest thing we're working on a vector is actually something we call galactic sky so we're building the rocket which is to get more of these these commercial assets these satellites into space
and do it economically we're charging a million and a half for a launch which is more the size that small companies can afford but to further that whole barrier to access to space lowering the galactic sky constellation we're going to build and put up well users to make an app just like you would for a mobile phone place in the space so you don't have to build the satellite layer to get your data from space so what we ideally want to do is put the equivalent of a cell phone network as a space layer those available to anybody with with a few thousand dollars and bright enough to come up with an idea that might work with the functional equivalent of a cell phone i think that this is a great liberty producing capability i think it's something that will produce great economic value i'm not smart enough to know what all the apps are i'm smart enough to put an infrastructure together that people can exploit thank you jim space how did they say at the final frontier star trek william shatner it's all in our future people. the lord.
yes. genius runs in the cantrell family jim sun column cantrell is also working on some pretty innovative projects now calling is the founder and lead developer of the cryptocurrency nexus he is also the creator. the next is earth conference where we filmed all of this month's episode collin and his dad are currently working to create the world's first decentralized internet here's why he says this groundbreaking technology is so important now if we've looked at the proliferation of the internet we've seen that it's brought a whole movement of things to get i mean information is free now of course are trying to censor it with google and other things but we actually have the ability anybody can go out they can put their content out they can get word out and anybody can access that but there's some concerns with peas in the infrastructure of it being used to kind of can choose control information again china has what's called
the great firewall of china we joke about it with all the traffic in and out of china is filtered they can't let certain things in so a decentralized internet think about it instead of it being the grid and their grid their telephone poles their roads their we can build their own devices that talk to each other and we can all talk to each other as peers instead of having to go through their grid and paid subscription fees and then with that we tend build the network ourselves and so everybody having a cell phone would talk directly to each other set of cell phone towers and then that can talk to cars that may have messed devices in them and then they can talk to satellites they can go across continents so in a way it's a more robust infrastructure as well because it can't be tampered with it can't be changed it can't be manipulated because it's own by the people for the people and it's literally built from the people so in order to shut it down shut down free information you'd have to shut down every single device you'd have to destroy everything.
all right we're almost out of time but before we go governor we asked your fans to weigh in on plans to militarize space here's what they had to say oh say says it's stupid space offers infinite possibilities for our species the last thing we need is the most destructive force in history up there when you think about that. i agree wholeheartedly i can add anything to that keeping weapons out of space is a good idea because you can't trust man with a weapon. all right evades says we need a faith based missile defense system for sure because the north korean threat keeping that the system is top notch is important. well theoretically that would be wonderful but theoretically is that all we would ever use it for can we really be trusted that well i mean after all we did drop two atomic bombs we didn't need
to one would have gotten the job done the other was done for theatrical importance to try to scare russia now we sacrifice all those millions or hundreds of thousands of people who died in the second nucular blast just to make a point with russia so how do you trust us not misusing the very technology that they tell you we have to defend ourselves well defense an off fence in our country has become very shaded you can't tell the defense from the off ants we are no longer with the department of defense it should be called what it was originally the department of war. gov any final thoughts on space what surprised you most about our con our conversation with jim cantrell. well how how what surprised me the most is how this is on the horizon so quickly and that it
is going to become a reality shortly well within my wife time and i'm no spring chicken anymore. that's all we have time for today thanks for tuning in everyone send us your comments on facebook and twitter next week we're taking on wall street with patrick byrne c.e.o. of overstock patrick has exposed financial corruption of the highest order only to be smeared by the media and labeled a conspiracy theorists and always remember when government is the truth becomes a traitor stay very. just. one. world according to. what politicians do so. they put themselves on the line they get accepted or
rejected. so when you want to express. something wanted. to do right. this is what. reasonable people. interested in the why. should. all the world's a stage and all the news companies merely players but what kind of parties are anti america. t america offers more artsy american personal. in many ways the news landscape is just like this either real news fake news good actors sad actors and in the end you could never hear on. so much parking
for all the world's a stage all the world's a stage all the world's a stage and we are definitely a player. i do not know if the russian state packed into john podesta emails and gave them to wiki leaks but i do know barack obama's director of national intelligence has not provided credit to support his claims of russia i also know he perjured himself in a senate hearing three months before the revelations provided by edward snowden he denied the deep n.s.a. was carrying out wholesale surveillance of the us. the hyperventilating corporate media has once again proved to be an echo chamber for government claims that cannot be verified you would have thought they would have learned something after serving as george w. bush's useful idiots in the lead up to the invasion of iraq. it is vitally important that the press remains rooted in
a fact based universe especially when we enter an era when truth and fiction are becoming indistinguishable. oh. thank you thank you i'm going to take a good start. tonight what you aren't being told about the opioid crisis but first let me get the basic info out of the way and then we'll get to the center part because you know you better to get a little warm up connel time before you reveal the full frontal like the old wart ridden guard of undercarriage of the situation you can leave with the whole day to night story has everything illicit drugs villain is billionaires whistleblowers dead.
