7:17 pm
the western. liberal establishment and possibly even to again reading each person donald trump is believed to have negotiations and knocks but not the you know the the gun or did so happen you know and that's the emotional blackmail so i think the emotional argument of our son is not meaning many of. the viewpoints more divided and the need to look at it rationally in the moment the older i think the how much more calm and gradual anonymization of the situation should mean indeed part of the region has been under fire for its market one month people are dying of starvation because of necker medicine nearly 100000 but a 1000000000 about only drops out of their back to flex that india of washing use every conceivable mattered to suppress this uprising i think what is a likely scenario is that this will not only go the gotten it's going to be lifted
7:18 pm
and it will have to lift the kind of missed my girls to one month now and remember back in the christmas lifter that means more tragic stories that we are you will come to know the scale of the operation the number of the people who have who have died in these were pressed and the number of the people who have been illegally detained by the indian security forces. indonesia is planning a new capital city but local opinion is divided on the issue well of more on that story and others to this break. global insurrection against banker occupation we started that really before occupy wall street before the revolution in cairo before obviously this relation all in france or the protests and they're all connected all these protests are connected they're all connected to a rebellion against the have money and banks are all global in structure in bangkok
7:19 pm
. when it comes down to it it is no actually that i think one can say oh well the russians are all bad this certainly is not the case that the west is all good there are absolutely things that the west needs to be doing and what i would like to see is much much less. counterproductive rhetorical struggles we see against russia that it's you know it's it's become an easy way all getting so the audiences to approach it is to come up with cheap russian bashing that helps them. welcome back newly released e-mails reveal how chemical john's monsanto attempted
7:20 pm
to discredit an action group campaigning against its weed killer moments across america had raised the alarm about the use of one of the company's leading products called roundup. that's your enemy read it out of them and put them on the defensive and you won't have this problem i have been arguing for a week to beat the shit out of them and i have clearly lost we don't want to be seen as beating up on mothers nobody will listen to it anyway it has to be done by 3rd parties in 2030 in the action group sent an open letter to months sometimes top management calling on them to stop selling g.m.o. seeds and spraying crops with life a safe and other pesticides moms across america's director told us why the organization promotes organic farming. all we need to do is to take matters into our own hands and to make sure that the food supply is safe and that our families are not exposed to toxic chemicals and what we've done is created
7:21 pm
a moms across america gold standard and so this is a new seal of approval that brands can get to show that they're not only organic and not but they've gone the extra mile and gotten pesticide testing done their packaging might even be bio degradable fairtrade is used to mainly raised animal products is used and they support the transition from g.m.o. chemical farming to regenerative organic farming and so as a mother and mothers by 85 percent of the food we believe that they are listening to us and that it does make a difference and we ask all the consumers out there to continue speaking up and to go to moms across america dot org and find out more about our gold standard that will be launching next month. it's not just moms across america that's been targeted by monsanto documents revealed the company also operated a so-called intelligence fusion center its aim was to monitor and discredit critics who claim that life is saved the main ingredient in monsanto as we kill it is
7:22 pm
extremely dangerous to human health life as it is a herbicide and crop drying agent after the sprayed on crops ends up in food and tap water and several lawsuits monsanto's life is a base product was ruled to have caused cancer over the company's states that its product is safe to use in its appeal against the verdicts moms across america's director again told us this shows the company's disregard for public health this is an example of the type of mentality that g.m.o. companies have and that shows a complete disregard for public health and this is very disturbing considering that our government would like to now into the hands of regulation into the hands of these companies they are proposing to allow g.m.o. companies to dish sellers determine whether or not their products are safe or not and so as a mother just as it made any sense to me at all that the mentality of these tests
7:23 pm
were the type of people will have control over whether or not our supply is safe that's extremely disturbing to me and must not happen at all our government must regulate g.m.o. those and they must be able to determine whether or not they're safe or not and these e-mails are a very good example exactly why that must happen. and in these it will be moving its capital away from jakarta to a new location on the island of borneo which is the largest in asia the into these in government plans to begin really ok to the capital from 2024 in a move prompted budget carter's growing environmental challenges. my.
7:24 pm
cossar is also facing another pressing problem their legal draining of. both the local and by both locals and industries is causing massive landslide it's fast but many buildings on the brink of collapse we all stayed uneasy as for their thoughts on the plan to move the capital to borneo. well in donnybrook what bible god i believe the government has a strong reason to move the capital city so i have to agree with the decision. well i agree with the relocation but attention should be also given to the people our economy struggling there is unemployment and many companies are collapsing. but you say produces i don't agree with this jakarta has already become the center of life whereas the new area is not ready to jungle but nothing of the reasons for moving the capital with the traffic the sinking and flooding i don't agree with it because
7:25 pm
the president promised to fix our yeah but if they rather cation i will hold development across only reassurance that i am and. we return to our breaking news from the u.s. state of texas where police have confirmed that a gunman has been shot and killed at the synergy cinema in the city of odessa of already say there is no active shooter at this time besides the suspects reports say the shootings in the cities of midland odessa texas left 5 people dead and 21 injured the victims are said to include at least one police officer a possible 2nd shooter was reported earlier but there is no further information on that suspect right now president trump has been briefed on the situation and here's what a local police spokesman spokesperson said earlier. to jewish started about 317 this afternoon when i did p.s. trooper attempted to stop a gold honda. when the d.p.s. troopers got the car stopped he was then shot by the occupant of the car political
7:26 pm

7:27 pm
thinks. me here. why a paradise with some all year round turned into a round the experimentation field the agricultural chemicals we know that these chemicals have consequences they are major irritants there's no question otherwise why would the chemical company workers themselves be geared up that suited up locals attempt to combat the on regulated experiments but often in day you have many of these people who have one foot into the biotech pharma and the other foot in the government regulatory bodies this kind of collusion. it is reprehensible while the battle goes on the chemicals continue to poison hawaii and its people so one has to ask the question whether there is a form of environmental races going on in hawaii whether these companies feel they
7:28 pm
can get away with this because the people have less political power. guys are this is the report you know this began as a celebration of our 10 years of kaiser report incredible if i think so stacey if the next quarter we're going to be celebrating our 10 year anniversary you know because i like to do month long sort of celebrations my birthday is officially one month our 10 year anniversary is going to be a whole quarter just so you now and you know one of the themes that kind of has
7:29 pm
been constant in the past 10 years is this new paradigm shift i remember over it 0 head and liberty blitzkrieg they called it the 4th turning right that there was a huge generational paradigm shift that was happening and you could see that with the meltdown we're having with china and the trade war and it's really about the sudden recognition even though some of us have recognized that for quite a while the southern recognition that they actually beat us and high tech stuff and it suddenly dawned on us they are we 2nd rate to them and we have the melt up and feel i in these negative yielding bonds there's a little melt up happening there and i think it's the beginning of the age of bitcoin and the return of gold i don't doubt that one bit because we have now the globalization and the dollars ation which will be. superseded
7:30 pm
by the age of individual sovereignty and the way to fund that is through bitcoin if you have your keys it's on confiscated all and it's hard money so this is the 1st time ever in the history of humans that you've had an unconscious capable hard money available to individuals and this will give rise to a globe of individual a sovereign individuals and the nation state will subside and the role of money will collapse and we'll have a new era we at kaiser for have been covering this emergence of this new era you know sometimes you make incorrect observations because you're only predicting what could possibly happen but we've been remarkably accurate in terms of our assessment of what was actually going on we coined it for example global insurrection against banker occupation and the banker occupation is really the central bank occupation in this it's where it was.
