at least seventy reportedly arrested as ukraine's interior ministry launches a clampdown on. activists in the city of holocaust in eastern ukraine. and several other major cities in eastern regions also engulfed in and rest with crowds rallying in defiance of ukraine's interim leaders and seeking to break away . plus cuba says a u.s. funded twitter style social network is just a small part of a large scale campaign absurd version launched by washington.
2:01 am
the world's top headlines live for this hour that's r.t. international with me. from everybody here a very warm welcome to you. seventy people have reportedly been arrested in the eastern ukrainian city of hot coffee after a crackdown on anti kiev activists and they early occupied a local government building which witnessed scenes of violence overnight clashes erupted after protesters were pushed out of the building and we spoke to one activist who saw the events first. well that's something for you maybe you have been showing molotov cocktails thrown at the building saying that it was activists from the conflict in reality the men who introduced themselves as policemen from poltava and suma entered the building and started attacking unarmed people there using stun grenades and rubber bullets but they
2:02 am
never showed the right these there were many injured among us they pushed us so but that's when we made more cocktails and threw them inside trying to smoke the moat but unlike them we never attempted to hurt them aiming for the walls later they saw reinforcements arriving at the building and fled. and another eastern ukrainian city is that of dog nets a group of activists that declared a suffer in state on monday it started as a a peaceful rally drawing thousands though later protesters stormed the local administrative building demanding an independence referendum they said the region will hold a vote before the upcoming presidential election journalist graham william phillips now reports from done yet right so i didn't think so keep quiet since you know more we can see behind this is the will to fly barricades of the pro russian protests is now you can see the runway the several hundred here that could even be from two thousand to come out as you can see we have young we have pro russian demonstrators
2:03 am
and the atmosphere here is calm but these people seem to be here to stay i mean here to demand what they see as their right now to hold a referendum here in donetsk. so it isn't just for supplies we're seeing we're seeing a range of sentiment very much a real pro don't pass what they want to hear a device is for their voice to be heard in kiev. and in the southern city of nicholai have supporters of the earth already using kiev forcibly dismantled a protest camp set up by those who oppose that of the interim government. according to local media up to ten people injured when my down activists clashed with pro russian protesters stun grenades and firecrackers were used and we discussed the unrest in the east of ukraine with foreign affairs expert and. he
2:04 am
says kiev has alienated the south and the east of the country with this anti russian rhetoric. what they've done is tear the country apart while there was a task even a tacit understanding that there was a constitution that there were rules that were going to be obeyed and that the interests of. all ukrainians whether russian speakers or ukrainian speakers or whether it would be respected. and she was able to pull together at the moment it became obvious that she might done put just don't really care for any sort of law is a post and only really care for law they want guns and everybody else decided to take guns up as well in zero six you write stamey and this is a consequence of that action from the very get go it was obvious that the my don regime was very anti russian in every respect in the by stench and anti russian ukrainian so it's discoursing has been horribly mishandled by the mind on people from the very start starting with the cool february twenty second the leader of the
2:05 am
radical right sector group dimitri yarosh he says his group's actions will now be aimed at fighting russia. the right sector is creating a special command which will coordinate the activities of all groups warts in order to fight russian aggression we're also ordered you to know rections with ukraine's national security council. the right sector is considered a far right neo nazi group which has recently become a political party in ukraine its leader will take part in the upcoming may presidential election of this group and many other far right radicals have been snatching power since the february revolution in kiev that's russia's biggest concern as well as worrying people in the east of ukraine. now the behavior of ukraine's nationalists appears to have largely poss the u.s.
2:06 am
by in fact american officials openly confess they they don't double check information provided by the revolutionary leaders in kiev. so you are relying on the government in terms of what is point zero do you have any independent sources well of course we remain very closely in touch with the ukrainian government and that too we work closely with enough course they are on the ground so their information is are often very relevant to current so we need the secretary talked to mr glover on the one two three four it's a lot of tension between say look the situation was like this this is what we have this is the way to these are russians to say he told him exactly what i what i just conveyed to all of you and you can certainly reach out to the russians for any readout from their aunt margaret. well the polls are suggesting very few in the
2:07 am
united states have or even want a clear picture of exactly what's going on in ukraine for example an investigation by the washington post has now shown that sixteen percent of americans don't even know where the country actually is they were asked to point out ukraine on the world map as you can see many were very far from reality there also appeared to be an interesting correlation the less accurate people were in the test the more they wanted the u.s. to intervene and the greater threat they saw from russia while nevertheless a c.b.s. poll shows the vast majority of americans don't want their country to intervene in ukraine sixty five percent of those questioned disapproved of any plans for the u.s. and nato to provide military assistance to kiev an independent researcher and writer . alric she thinks western interference in ukraine has already caused far too much chaos. western governments. have a desire to expand into the region and look for nature to surround russia may think
2:08 am
that it was successful but it's inconceivable how they can even imagine it being a success when there is so much conflict in uprising nation allies america's nato allies in europe and many that it would have given rise the fact it's always the voice of many of the others who are not backing were backing the french and when they were ignored i think we saw flashes flashes all unfortunately graphically . now the u.s. state department accuses moscow of destabilizing the situation in ukraine russia's foreign minister has rebuffed those accusations in a column published in britain's guardian newspaper lavrov writes that russia has been supporting ukraine for years and accuses brussels and washington about the crisis by forcing kiev to choose between east and west nevertheless talk of
2:09 am
american sanctions against russia continues to get louder. are now despite exports predictions they will only backfire though are coming up here on r.t. international take a look at one industry that's already experiencing decline and fall due to washington's approach. and on the program cuba says a twitter like service is just a tiny part of america's campaign of subversion against it other projects include the mass sending of text messages and using the internet to broadcast t.v. signals which are routinely jammed by local authorities or the u.s. dismisses allegations it's trying to store on the rest of us artie's guy nature can reports not everyone is convinced. an investigation by the associated press has revealed that the us government has once again tried to steer protests in cuba by creating a messaging network which was designed to become the cuban twitter the social network based on text messages was launched four years ago and was called nail now
2:10 am
at the time nobody knew that the program was conceived in washington and carried out by the u.s. agency for international development the associated press investigation reveals that that extensive efforts were undertaken to conceal the true nature of zooms and mailed using offshore bank accounts from companies and overseas servers the a.p. quoted a twenty ten memo from a contractor involved in the initiative saying there will be absolutely no mention of united states government involvement this is absolutely crucial for the long term success of the service and to ensure the success of the mission the mission being cuban spring of course apparently the idea was to create a service that would carry neutral content at the beginning but once it gained enough subscribers that's when it would be useful political purposes the a.p. quotes and other documents saying walk add banners will give it the appearance of a commercial enterprise you can't see any of it now because the program was shut
2:11 am
down two years after its creation not clear exactly why some sources have said because of lack of funding or maybe because of lack of official so there are still questions at its peak though the network head around fifty thousand subscribers and for a while many unsuspecting cubans kept guessing why their new free messaging service stopped working all of a sudden i guess by the way apparently the initiative also appears to have had civilians dimension to it according to the contractor mobil accord began building a vast database about the subscribers assessing their quote unquote receptiveness and political tendencies well now that the subscribers know who was really behind the service the white house says. they were not trying to dupe anybody at all they were just being quote unquote discreet here's jay carney saying of course the government has taken steps to be discreet but this is not unique to cuba u.s. officials who argue there is nothing wrong about facilitating communication flow of
2:12 am
information it's all protected under free speech fair enough but there is a fine line between informing people and for maintaining revolutions in order to align certain states with their interests in washington i'm going to check on our team. now social networks have proven useful worldwide in fueling protests unrest services like facebook and twitter provide a way to easily mobilize crowds if you remember the iranian elections a few years ago those led to protests dubbed the facebook revolution and the arab spring also largely inspired by social networks they played a major role in the overthrow of regimes in two news and egypt and washington has been openly supporting the youth protests no wonder that critics believe the covert program in cuba was also an attempt to cause upheaval and william robinson a sociologist from the university of california he's among those who believes the project had nothing to do with promoting freedom of speech the united states has
2:13 am
spent between one thousand nine hundred six and two thousand and eleven over two hundred million dollars to destabilize cuba in the name of promoting democracy this particular and that's documented this is simply the latest in a long string of destabilization for the u.s. government has discovered it can use social media in order to intervene in other countries in order to mobilize and manipulate populations in order to achieve its desired political outcomes the u.s. congress was arguing whether this is in line with u.s. law or it is not in line with u.s. law but that is irrelevant because this is an absolute violation of international law. and senior correspondent from our germany's does spiegel magazine holger stark he believes governments well ahead of the average user when it comes to exploiting social networks for political reasons people realized that the internet lost its innocence and that's probably the biggest achievement for snowden since he popped
2:14 am
up last summer the overall approach of the n.s.a. but also the government is to have the whole he stake that's how they say it so imagine the internet all information that is flowing every day as a haystack for the internet the intelligence agencies that want to acquire that haystack to have everything almost all kinds of information and then to find out and go through it which information is necessary to have and which not and i think people need to realize whatever you do on the internet it's just on secure. hard to look at me when i want to international law very young to buy mazzei hitting the path of enlightenment on route to a buddhist temple in siberia. delving into the mystery of one lama who's known decaying body is baffling modern scientists even today decades after he died.

2:25 am
died in and exam thirty years later so thirty years later his father was did exam the body and apparently found cops had defined decay in two thousand and two. he was exiled for a second time with little sign of decomposing is that possible scientists and theologists have been trying to understand the mystery surrounding the body of the humble lama gallops depending on who you are asked the scientists will tell you that it is the mystery of an unexplained phenomena and here at the temple it's all about who was this possible all real meticulous an ecosystem with exactly how the lama has managed to do their remains unclear that there is not a parent's exchange of matter or energy in this case except for sudden changes in body temp. it on his forehead when
2:26 am
a lot of people come to washington and there are some who suggest that the body to have been embalmed using special salts all egyptian money fine techniques but no clear conclusion scientifically at least has risen and if it has no one is sharing what they know still you can only believe something if you see it yourself when the doors open to the main temple i wasn't quite sure what i would see. we were asked to come in but leave our cameras outside so we've just come out of the temple where the humble lama is basically being displayed and then when you get inside it really is just a peaceful beautiful temple like any other but he is inside two double enclosed glass and there he was sitting in a lotus position estate it closed in his orange robe but his eyes had sunk in i don't know what you make of this but it's either face all size and whichever

2:30 am
last time i talked about qatar's preparation for the two thousand and twenty two world cup i reported that at least seventy nepalese migrant workers had died while building the infrastructure for the games that was last october and turns out that number was severely under reported apparently the real number of worker deaths a guitar since thousand and twelve is more than nine hundred and as many as twelve hundred according to a report published last month by smithsonian magazine and the international trade union confederation that's right
2:31 am
a number at least thirty team times the amount previously recorded now keep in mind the qatari world cup is not even scheduled to take place for another eight years that means that the current rate it's estimated at at least four thousand laborers will lose their lives in order to ensure these games take place not just for comparison throughout brazil's preparations for this summer's world cup six workers have died clearly worker deaths in both cases are unacceptable but why is there such an insanely disproportionate amount of worker deaths guitar also do with the brutal working conditions these people endure in this small persian gulf state according to robert booth of the guardian workers described forced labor and one hundred twenty two degree fahrenheit heat employees to retain salaries for several months and passports making it impossible for them to leave and being denied free drinking water the investigation found sicknesses and demick among workers living in overcrowded and unsanitary conditions one labor claims quote we were working on
2:32 am
an empty stomach for twenty four hours twelve hours of work and then no food all night when i complained my manager assaulted me kicked me out of the labor camp i lived in and refused to pay me anything they outright refusal to pay workers is common and what makes this exploitation possible is that guitar's labor market is largely made up of migrant workers from africa and south asia who leave their countries of the promise of wages they couldn't earn at home and these workers make up a huge. percentage of qatar's population and a country of just two million people over a half are migrant workers that upon arrival to the oil rich nation many of them only find that their contracts passports and visas have been confiscated or corner part essentially reducing them to undocumented slaves with no hope of escape. in fact sharon burrow of the international trade union confederation sums up the situation quite simply saying that the qatari world cup is being quote the livered
2:33 am
on the back of a system of modern day slavery look global sporting events have the potential to showcase amazing athleticism and international cooperation but the tar uses the world cup to bolster its image as an old way says the modernization under closer examination it's nothing more than a desert mirage. this weekend afghanistan held elections the pick the successor for president hamid karzai who's been in power for the last thirteen years but while many are her heralding the elections as a unifying day for the country the celebration has been short lived because today at least thirteen civilians were killed by a roadside bomb in southern afghanistan or reminder of the unpredictable violence that continues to grip the country the afghanistan elections are also happening on the heels of the withdrawal of canadian troops and the continued drawdown of british forces and although the us has declared that it will fully withdraw its
2:34 am
troops by the end of this year a looming strategic pact could keep u.s. military presence in the country until two thousand and twenty four so where does that leave the afghan people to discuss the future of afghanistan i was joined earlier by someone who's been in the country nine times kathy kelly and activist with voices for creative nonviolence i first asked her what options afghans have or had rather when they went to the ballots this past weekend thank you. because we're looking at candidates that include in the tickets were it's very frightening and menacing words and so as people did turn out to go in to have sent a clear message to the taliban that they would vote in spite of the insecurities and there was also a message basically being sent to people of constantly you don't have a lot of choice other than just sort of so that she eats and they're very well armed militias that surround them you're saying that every candidate was in fact
2:35 am
a warlord. no i don't say that about every candidate but i would say that the main tickets for instance i'm sure funny running with those and general just a mess over there but the hideous past a massacre and usage of weapons against unarmed civilians. i think that it is not going to start right now there are many many armed and frightening groups that are protecting various needs and in a way you could say that about the united states as well i mean the united states and some. interest in controlling extraction pricing and flow of resources that might eventually go out of afghanistan so let's get back to the election really quickly are there were there were cries of watching fraud do you think that these elections were fair copy. it's very hard to sandman you know this is an extremely difficult place in which to conduct an election the young people i know that i stay with when i go to kabul were five blocks away from the five hour
2:36 am
gun battle and they were very very frightened and so i can imagine people that were there selection observers were frightened and you know didn't decide to stay and try to fulfill that role since given the absence of serious given the. history of past friday and abuse given the idea that you know people can fill up a bus and say you know all the women in our area are going to go on the bus and brought this race sure you know it's the lot of questions. without believe it but i myself think that the greater validity in trying to see a future that would be sent ordinary. would be militantly to getting health care and food and shelter to people who've been displaced by war. and overlooked massively by one group after another the invaders there have been rumors of course of
2:37 am
a strategic pact between obama and karzai that could keep the us in afghanistan through twenty twenty four i mean but of course we keep hearing that their point on twenty fourteen how realistic do you think that that timeline is. well i think it's still very realistic to imagine that the united states troops. that are just bilateral security agreement is almost certain to be signed eventually. but you know just pulling out many thousands of troops doesn't play any needs indicate that the united states with its combination remaining drone surveillance and joint special operations commandos is going to be relinquishing military and as a means to protect their ability to extract resources and stand in the twenty first century military there's not such a need for big sprawly bases but we think the united states is likely to maintain three major airfields. eighty nine military bases in the ability to kind of
2:38 am
turn materials over to the afghan national forces but then rent them back again when the u.s. wants them and also three major prisons and so you know if another country at that level of investment militarily in the united states we could start to ask some questions here and then of course there are still one hundred thousand private contractors on the ground there the pentagon can't account for what they're doing so even troop withdrawal wouldn't necessarily mean. the end of u.s. involvement as you clearly just outlined how the every empire that's ever invaded and occupied afghanistan has failed to and turn into a quagmire i mean why did this happen what was this war really about. it's difficult to say why we're here is lying to you in the end it's done in the first place because it is a nation that's quite rich in resources than geopolitically it's in a strategic position and then there are those who profit from the race you know i
2:39 am
think it's worth mentioning that right now it cost two point one million dollars to keep one u.s. soldier in afghanistan for one here and why is that a lot of the money is going into paying tolls on every truck that deliveries supplies weapons ammunition food through a wire to the u.s. military and similarly to contractors many contractors as well well that toll gets to the people who control those roadways most of them are drug lords and warlords many of whom are taleban so we're not totally even in the new york review of books basically says that the united states has been subsidizing the taliban over these many years so the status quo and exactly exacerbated were suits the needs the greedy and the completely inhumane needs people who profit from war that you've spent a great deal of time on the ground you've been afghanistan more people times we're
2:40 am
going to volunteers do you think that the efforts to leave afghanistan safely in the hands of its own people should be left up to the afghanis the u.s. needs to get out what can we do to turn this country around i mean is it just leaving it completely up to afghanistan to this point according to the special inspector general report in afghanistan spent one hundred billion dollars over the past twelve years and i'm military. and only three billion never will. humanitarian aid so the united states doesn't have the ability to do the kind of nation building it talks about but i think we would have to look for trustworthy non-governmental organizations. beings that the united nations might be able to work a lot inside out and hope for some means to put. money and resources into saying to people don't understand we're sorry very
2:41 am
sorry for the suffering caused and we want a son i'll make the parents thank you kathy kelly koch ordinator voices for creative nonviolence really appreciate you coming on thank you having. coming up i'll talk about the shady world of high frequency trading stay tuned.
2:42 am
crosstalk rules in effect that means you can jump in anytime you want. the fleet is george brown just like an old woman and george osborne at number eleven downing street is convincing the old woman that they should be fracking and then the old woman tells george gillett leave. a green. thing and then george says. this picture sir. i'm not. sure that. it's in our. hearts.
2:43 am
the financial crisis of two thousand it was no doubt the worst economic catastrophe since the great depression besides the multitude of bankruptcies bailouts and austerity measures the crisis also left a lasting impact on the amount of faith americans have in wall street and in fact according to a financial trust and expo of last year only twenty two percent of americans said that they trust the financial system and now there is yet another reason for the public to reject our crony capitalist system and it doesn't even involve predatory lending or subprime mortgages i'm talking about a little known practice known as high frequency trading century this is a stock trading method that involves using incredibly advanced computer algorithms to buy and sell stocks and ideal prices just milliseconds before the general public can and while a millisecond might seem trivial when you're dealing with stocks that can mean a difference of billions of dollars and firms that engage in this technique are
2:44 am
making enormous profits at the expense of regular investors now last week author michael lewis made waves across wall street with the release of his new book flash boys which exposes the shady world of high. frequency trading in highlight several stockbrokers who spoke out against the practice this is how he described what those stock brokers discovered nearly six years ago. it's. a group people who are actually on wall street who figure out kind of around two thousand and eight that the stock market is also something funny is happening and it's not just the financial crisis all of a sudden they look at their screens in the stock market it says it's you know you can buy fifty thousand shares of microsoft at twenty dollars a share they go to buy it and it goes away it goes away in the stock price goes up and it's as if market knows what they're going to do before they do it. so how did the market pull miss cleo predict the future well essentially these high frequency trading or f a t h f t firms excuse me are getting away with this technique through
2:45 am
a number of eyebrow raising technologically ridiculous methods firstly these firms build their computers right next to stock exchange servers so that their stock purchases are processed fractions of a second faster secondly they use microwave towers fiber optic cables and even laser beams of facilitate transaction between markets in different cities much much faster than any human can ever do finally and most egregiously these firms take advantage of something known as proprietary data feeds and before your eyes start to glaze over stay with me because all you need to know is that there are two types of stock price information feeds the first one is available to the general public and it's what you see when you view the stock ticker on any financial channel this public feed ensures that everyone has access to the same stock information at the same time then there are proprietary information feeds which stock exchanges sell to firms and investors willing to pay big bucks for it and while legally stock
2:46 am
information must be entered into both the public and proprietary feeds at the same time the proprietary information is processed by these advanced computers faster than investors can keep up with the public feed this leads to another huge advantage for these firms and allowing me to tell the way the market will shift before everyone else and the people behind these exchanges are the laughing all the way to the bank in fact between two thousand and six and two thousand and twelve nast x. proprietary market data revenue more than doubled to one hundred and fifty million dollars and over the past few years high frequency trading has gotten so out of control that just last friday attorney general eric holder announced the justice department is looking into whether the practice constitutes insider trading but let's be honest when wall street owns our politicians. form is not exactly a top priority guys and really can you blame them can you blame the economic elite for taking advantage of a system purposefully rigged to benefit them because of push comes to shove there's
2:47 am
no better way to skirt accountability than to hide behind a supercomputer that does your looting. as corporate media or mit's and ratings pockets of alternative media have filled the void to provide news that americans actually need one such out that is the young turks as online one has probably the most popular new show on the internet topping over a billion views on its you tube channel last year and the topic consistently covered on the young turks is the ongoing flood of n.s.a. revelations and the mainstream media's dysfunctional coverage of the global surveillance program earlier i spoke to an expiry and co-host and producer of the young turks and i started by asking her why the corporate media is so caught up in attacking people like edward snowden and graham greenwald instead of addressing the actual content of their message. if you look at the edward snowden case
2:48 am
specifically establishment media is interested in protecting the establishment so they really change the narrative of that entire story by doing character assassination as opposed to focusing on that very important information that was given to the american people and unfortunately the media is really good at propaganda and convincing people that they should focus on edward snowden and who he is as a person as opposed to what the government is doing to violate our rights and our freedoms and it's really really shady to know that it works so effectively i mean when i did the point and we were talking about that very topic there were obama apologists on my panel and i had to hold them accountable and i had to hold the obama administration accountable because that's what real reporting is you tell people what the reality is and i know that if you sit americans down and you. tell them hey you know what the government is watching every move you do they're indiscriminately collecting information on americans they'll be outraged by it all you have to do is shift the focus to what the real story is but establishment media

will protect the establishment and that's exactly what happened with edward snowden . of course framing it in the hero is he a hero or is he a traitor weigh in here i mean let's talk about the fact that there's something systemically dysfunctional and really really wrong in this country in terms of the dragnet spying and address that other relevant story this new supreme court case a beauty is the hobby lobby corporations are essentially setting religion as a reason to not provide birth control to employees under obamacare do you think birth control is a right and what is it about corporate personhood kind of dictating these decisions . well corporate personhood of course is a big problem in the united states it leads to corruption in politics so it's something that i don't agree with but you know when you take a look at the affordable care act the whole reason why obama wanted to ensure that women had access to contraceptives is because we spend eleven billion dollars a year on unwanted pregnancies so it's part of cost controls and it makes sense now
2:50 am
hobby lobby comes in and i think that everything that they're saying is totally disingenuous oh we're religious we don't believe in it there was a federal judge who made a ruling prior to this case going to the supreme court and the judge ruled that hey you know what the birth control portion of the affordable care act is constitutional because as an employer you pay your employees and you cannot control what your employees spend that money on so let's say that the health insurance company doesn't provide the contraceptive and your employees have to pay for it ok what do you do you're going to get involved you're going to tell your employees no you can't pay for contraception because that money comes from our company you can't do it and it sets a really really dangerous precedent because you use religion in order to discriminate or in order to go against something that you don't necessarily agree with right so what if a certain company is against in virtue of fertilization can make come in and say hey you know what your insurance is not allowed to pay for that we don't agree with that we're not going to do it what if an employer has an employee who has
2:51 am
a same sex couple are they going to say hey we don't want to insure your partner because we don't agree with same sex marriage i mean it's a slippery slope and it's dangerous and i don't really think that it has to do with religion to be quite honest with you i think it has to do with the right wing not agreeing with the affordable care act and finding any way possible to tear it down and of course you recently took to twitter to bring up different women's issues with the call to action recently started a campaign called cancel colbert or start pretty much a larger discussion about race what do you think about people who mock this type of activism or people who. shut it down and they say oh it's kind of just trivial and it doesn't do anything. i disagree with that i think that twitter can really be used as an effective tool to get information out to get a conversation going now that call for action hash tag that i was using was part of the carter center push to endorse women's rights and equality for women and it was frustrating because it's hard to be nuanced with one hundred forty characters but
2:52 am
at least it got a conversation going and the whole cancel call bear thing is a different story i mean i don't necessarily disagree with using twitter to get your message across but i disagree with that particular message because cold air is a comedian and what he said on his show and what he tweeted on his twitter account was totally fine in my opinion because it was a joke it was satire it's totally fine but twitter should be used as a way to get the message across just one quick example would be wendy davis doing her epic filibuster and of course she was filibustering anti-abortion legislation in texas people were going to twitter to get that information because the mainstream press refused to cover that story so whether you're using a hash tag or whether you want to cover a particular story twitter can be a great tool for that. you know disagree or agree with definitely worked i mean she got that issue out there and i was super controversial and i think it did bring up a good debate so yeah and i love what you were saying on there as well and i wanted
2:53 am
to bring up a couple of things that you brought up i mean sex workers rights why is it that the rights of sex workers are often ignored in larger larger conversations about just workers' rights in general. well because we live in this period technical society and anything involved involving sex is considered you know unsavory and it's frustrating because if you use logic you'll realize that it's important to do things like legalize prostitution and regulate it that way women don't have to rely on pimps they don't have to work in an environment that's on regulated and dangerous for them and for some reason we just refuse to have that conversation because anything involving sex is scary to us and it drives me in saying i care about the rights and the safety of everyone who works in this country i don't care if they're in the sex industry i don't care if they're minors we have to protect them and the best way to do that is to ensure that they're doing what they're doing in a safe environment the urban institute just recently were reported about prostitution
2:54 am
in the country and it is making record profits for pimps basically and do we really want to live in a society that pretends as if that issue doesn't exist i mean i don't i would much rather regulated right i mean it's just the same as the war on drugs that everyone's going to use drugs you know people are still going to use prostitution so why not just decriminalize it regulate it unfortunately we live in this kind of puritanical repressive society where we're sold sex at every you know every corner were sold sex yet we're so kind of repressed in terms of if you're comparing us to the rest of the world especially european countries you know being around all males a male dominated industry and i mean has it been tough for you as a really vocal outspoken female just speaking your mind. there are moments where it feels tough and you know you kind of feel like your voice isn't as. lauder as
2:55 am
effective as everyone else and you know as a woman in the media i'm sure you get this a lot too you know you're immediately judged by the way you look before you even speak so if you're an attractive woman and you're immediately thought of his dog and then you have to prove yourself for men it's different like if jenkins into a room he's wearing a suit people already think like oh this guy has some authority he must be intelligent if i walk in wearing like a power dress it doesn't matter like she's she's an attractive young woman she probably doesn't know what she's talking about and then you have to prove to them through your words and through your research that you are credible and what you're saying is legitimate but i will say that i love the challenge i love being in a male dominated male dominated society a male dominated workplace an industry where i can you know break through the barriers and be like what now like i know what i'm talking about i can prove to you that there is a brain in there and there's information i want to give to you if people don't want to listen to it they don't have to listen to it but i love that challenge because i think it really makes you a stronger person thank you so much and it is far and co-host producer the young
2:56 am
turks amazing have you on thank you. that's our show you guys you're going to morrow when i break over again. which i would. told you my language as well but i will only react to such a. threat to reproach but. no i will leave a comment on your line of. security every car is on the donkey. or. no more weasel words. when you

hero's first minister on march. the book. the first series of a good basis tried to explain the polish going to be good news for you like the war to destroy the teaching every minute. i'm going to cut me the dollar lock the weapon. like the book. most famous thing to say. these cases have to its limits now but sometimes for nothing and the book is so mean and simple it's just. it's not just keep up the story and still be just if you see
2:59 am
a stage eight look to be sets but speech was said. in. the book. you mean speak your language. program documentaries in arabic. from the talks about six of the interviews intriguing story for you. visit. was to build a new. mission to teach me. why you should care
3:00 am
only. breaking news here when. russia is most wanted terrorist. dead it's been officially confirmed by the russian federal security service. that at least seventy arrested as ukraine's interior ministry. activists in the city. and several other major cities in eastern regions also in. with crowds rallying in defiance of ukraine's interim leaders and seeking to break away. from sunday's presidential poll is overshadowed by threats as attacks continue to
3:01 am
plague the country. the well as to. headlines live from moscow it's r.t. international with me rory sushi thank you for joining us and straight to our breaking news for you here on r.t. international russia's most wanted man terrorist doc who will model has been killed or the head of the russian federal security service has now confirmed this there have been a number of reports previously previously suggesting that he was dead but this is the first time officials have confirmed it was behind a series of major terror attacks including the moscow airport bombing in twenty year levon and suicide attacks on the city's metro he also masterminded the school siege in beslan in two thousand and four that claimed more than three hundred lives
3:02 am
most of them young children we will have more on this breaking news as soon as we get it here on r.t. international oh well. you know. what. for now though on the program seventy people reportedly arrested in the eastern ukrainian city of hama cough this after a crackdown on anti kiev activists they occupied a local government building which witnessed scenes of violence overnight clashes erupted after protesters were pushed out of the building we did manage to speak to one activist who saw the events firsthand. some cream media have been showing molotov cocktails thrown at the building saying that it was activists from the. reality the group of men who introduced themselves as policemen from poltava and suma entered the building and started attacking unarmed people there using stun grenades and rubber bullets they never showed the
3:03 am
right these there were many injured among us they pushed us so but that's when they made more time cocktails and threw them inside trying to smoke the moat but unlike them we never attempted to hurt them you were aiming for the walls later they saw reinforcements arriving at the building and fled. and in another eastern ukrainian city that of dawn yet sky a group of activists declared a sovereign state on monday it started off as a peaceful rally drawing thousands but protesters stormed the local administrative building demanding an independence referendum they said the region will hold a vote before the upcoming presidential election a journalist graham william phillips now reports from don yes we're here but so i didn't think so keep quiet since you know more we can see behind this is the will to fly barricades of the pro russian protests is now you can see the runway the several hundred here the could even be allowed to come out as you can see as we
3:04 am
have young we have oh they are pro russian demonstrates is the atmosphere here is calm but these people say they are here to stay i mean here to demand what they see as their right now to hold a referendum here in donetsk. so it isn't just for supplies we're seeing we're seeing a range of sentiment very much a real pro don't pass what they want to hear in the bias is for their voice to be heard in kiev. i mean the southern city of nikolai of supporters of the author he is in kiev forcibly dismantled a protest camp set up by those who oppose the interim government. according to local media up to ten people injured when my ban activists clashed with production protestors stun grenades and firecrackers were used we discussed the rest of the east if ukraine with foreign affairs expert an abortion he says as
3:05 am
alienated the south and east of the country with this anti russian rhetoric. what is done is tear the country apart while there was a task even a tacit understanding that there was a constitution that there were rules that were going to be obeyed and that the interests of. all ukrainians whether russian speakers or ukrainian speaker should whatever would be respected. there john she was able to pull together at the moment it became obvious that he might done which is still really hear first from what is false and only really care for the war they want guns and everybody else decided to take guns up as well and if you were right see me and this is the consequence of that action from the very get go it was obvious that the my john regime was very anti russian in every respect in the by sentient anti russian ukrainian so it's discoursing has been horribly mishandled by the mind on people from the very start starting with the cool february twenty second. and the leader of the radical right
3:06 am
secular group dimitri yet off he says his group's actions will now be aimed directly fighting russia. the right sector is creating a special command which will coordinate the activities of all groups warts and order to fight russian aggression also border need to know reactions with ukraine's national security council. the right sector is considered a far right neo nazi group which has recently become a political party in ukraine its leader will take part in the upcoming may presidential election of a fact that this group and many other far right radicals have been snatching power since the february revolution in kiev is russia's biggest concerns as well as wiring people in the east of ukraine. now the behavior of ukraine's nationalists appears to be largely passing washington d.c. right on by the american officials ultimately confessing they don't double check information provided by the revolutionary leaders in kenya. so you are relying on
3:07 am
the government in terms of what is. owed do you have any independent sources well of course we remain very closely in touch with the ukrainian government and that too we work closely with enough course they are on the ground so their information is are often very relevant to current so we need the secretary talked to mr love wrong. one two three four it's a lot of tension between say look this situation is like this this is what we have this is the true these are russian and ukrainian said to say he told them exactly what i what i just conveyed to all of you and you can certainly reach out to the russians for any readout from their aunt margaret. well polls are now suggesting in the united states or very few even understand exactly what's going on in ukraine or for that matter where it is for that part in fact an investigation by the washington post is now showing that sixteen percent of americans don't even know
3:08 am
where the country actually is they were asked to point out ukraine on a mup adults show where people. i thought it was with the most accurate responses in red and the least accurate in blue as you can see that many were very far from reality there also appeared to be an interesting correlation the less accurate people were in the test the more they wanted the u.s. to intervene and the greater threat they saw from russia well nevertheless a c.b.s. poll shows the vast majority of americans don't want their country to intervene in ukraine sixty five percent of those questioned disapprove of any plans for the u.s. and nato to provide military assistance to kiev and independent research or and writer. or dick she thinks western interference in ukraine has already caused enough chaos the western governments. have a desire to expand into the region and and which would need to surround russia may
3:09 am
think that it was successful but it's inconceivable how they can even imagine it being a success when there is so much conflict in upgrading their nation allies america's nato allies in europe and many feel that it's too little thank you despite the fact it's always the voice of many of the others who are not backing the work backing the friends and they were ignored i think and we saw clashes clashes will will unfortunately graphically. and the u.s. state department accusing moscow of destabilizing the situation in ukraine russia's foreign minister has rebuffed those accusations in a column published in britain's guardian newspaper sort of rights that russia has been supporting ukraine for years and accuses brussels and washington of aggravating the crisis by forcing kiev to choose between east and west nevertheless talk of american sanctions against russia is getting louder despite experts
3:10 am
predictions they will only backfire. coming up here on the program we'll be taking a look at one industry that's already experiencing decline and fall due to washington's approach. the meantime they're here on r.t. international as afghanistan counts the votes in his presidential election the attacks continue the latest roadside bomb has killed fifteen people in the south amid a taliban campaign to derail the poll and a democratic transition of power the counting suggests a second round showdown between two former ministers let's get more on this right now. joining us live from kabul lucy good to see you afghan officials hailing sunday's election as a raging success but perhaps it's still early days yet. it certainly is early days for this election was a success in terms of voter turnout we saw an estimated nearly sixty percent of afghans heading to the polls despite the very violent run up to election day with
3:11 am
the taliban carrying out a series of attacks aimed at disrupting the elections there wasn't an immediate indication of the kind of widespread fraud that haunted the two thousand and nine vote when more than a million votes had to be disqualified but still much too early to take to make any of declarations or assumptions here counting is still. official results in order to allow for fraud and complaints to be investigated we did see a shortage of ballots across the country likely due to the high turnout but also concerns that ballot stuffing played a role that's something that still needs to be investigated and despite the high turnout there were small parts of the country that barely saw any voters such as districts in the wardak province where the taliban hold sway those kinds of areas couldn't be monitored properly because of the security threat and that means that we still don't have a complete picture of just how the elections went across the country the other issue is the candidates now in order to win based on saturday's results alone a single candidate needs to take more than fifty percent of the vote with men in the running it's difficult to see how that will actually happen at this point the
3:12 am
two front are front runners pardon me appear to be dani and dr abdullah abdullah i should stress that this is based on preliminary an official tallies by news organizations here he's a former world bank executive who has picked an extremely controversial running mate a man that even he described as a known killer militia commander general dostum who was accused of brutal killings in the civil war of the one nine hundred ninety s. dr abdullah abdullah also has a running mate who's been branded as a warlord the other linked to a violent insurgent group and mr karzai is former foreign minister who is believed to be his favorite pick appears to be running behind but again it will take time to get the official count this is just based on the preliminary results and of course what all this means is that if no one candidate has a clear majority this paves the way for a runoff election likely sometime in may or early june and that means that afghanistan could go through this whole process again and of course the big concern would be with the fighting season underway what will the taliban do if that happens
3:13 am
and whether security will hold and really those thrilling. assumptions made by by the media of those who really pan out if the count and the runoff does take place all right. thank you. now one of my. songs next leader is clinching a security deal with washington. which the outgoing president karzai has left hanging in the air the u.s. is now winding down its combat mission but under the possible agreement it could leave up to fifteen thousand soldiers on the ground at least for the next decade america wants kabul to allow its troops to raid afghan homes while giving its soldiers legal immunity so far afghanistan's been very reluctant to meet those demands but the security pact with the u.s. is seen as crucial because many fear local forces will be unable to maintain stability without the assistance of american troops. or this is r.t. international thank you for joining us today cuba's saying a twitter like service is just a tiny part of america's campaign of subversion against it other projects include
3:14 am
the mass sending of text messages and using the internet to broadcast t.v. signals which are routinely jammed by local authorities at the u.s. dismisses allegations it's trying to stir unrest because artie's guy nature can reports not everybody is convinced. an investigation by the associated press has revealed that the us government has once again tried to steer protests in cuba by creating a messaging network which was designed to become the cuban twitter the social network based on text messages was launched four years ago and was called nail now at the time nobody knew that the program was conceived in washington and carried out by the u.s. agency for international development the associated press investigation reveals that that extensive efforts were undertaken to conceal the true nature of zooms and nailed using offshore bank accounts from companies and overseas servers the a.p. quoted a twenty ten memo from
3:15 am
a contractor involved in the initiative saying there will be absolutely no mention of united states government involvement this is absolutely crucial for the long term success of the service and to ensure the success of the mission the mission being cuban spring of course apparently the idea was to create a service that would carry neutral content at the beginning but once it gained enough subscribers that's when it would be useful political purposes the a.p. quotes and other documents saying mock ad banners will give it the appearance of a commercial enterprise you can't see any of it now because the program was shut down two years after its creation not clear exactly why some sources have said because of lack of funding or maybe because of lack of official so there are still questions at its peak though the network had around fifty thousand subscribers and for a while many unsuspecting cubans kept guessing why their new free messaging service stopped working all of a sudden oh yes by the way apparently the initiative also appears to have had
3:16 am
civilians dimension to it according to the contractor mobile the court began building a vast database about the subscribers assessing their quote unquote receptiveness and political tendencies well now that these subscribers know who was really behind the service the white house says. they were not trying to dupe anybody at all they were just being quote unquote discreet here's jay carney saying of course the government has taken steps to be discreet but this is not unique to cuba u.s. officials who argue there is nothing wrong about facilitating communication flow of information it's all protected under free speech fair enough but there is a fine line between informing people and for maintaining revolutions in order to align certain states with your interests in washington i'm going to check on our team. now social networks have proven useful in fueling unrest so it was like facebook and twitter are an easy way to mobilize crowds for example the iranian
3:17 am
elections a few years ago that led to protests dubbed the facebook revolution the arab spring also largely inspired by social networks a pleasure played a major role in the overthrow of regimes in tunisia and in egypt as well and washington has been openly supporting the youth protests there so perhaps no wonder that critics believe the covert program in cuba was also an attempt to cause up people william robinson a sociologist from the university of california he's among those who believes the project had nothing to do with promoting freedom of speech the united states has spent between one thousand nine hundred six and two thousand and eleven over two hundred million dollars to destabilize cuba in the name of promoting democracy this particular and that's documents this is simply the latest in a long string of destabilization for the u.s. government has discovered it can use social media in order to intervene in other countries in order to mobilize and manipulate populations in order to achieve its
3:18 am
desired political outcomes the u.s. congress was arguing whether this is in line with u.s. law or it is not in line with u.s. law but that is irrelevant because this is an absolute violation of international law. senior correspondent from germany's der spiegel magazine holga stark believes the governments are well ahead of the average user when it comes to exploiting social networks for political reasons people realized that the internet lost its innocence and that's probably the biggest achievement for snowden since the popped up last summer the overall approach of the n.s.a. but also the government is to have the whole have a stake that's how they say it so imagine the internet all information that is flowing every day as a haystack and the internet the intelligence agencies that want to acquire that haystack to have everything almost all kinds of information and then to find out and go through it which information is necessary to have and which not and i think
3:19 am
people need to realize whatever you do on the internet it's just on secure and i'm much more news coming your way with the very latest on our breaking story here that russia's most wanted man a terrorist doco or model has been killed the very latest in just a moment. talking about language as well but i will only react to situations i have read the reports for. the no i will leave that to the state department to comment on your. security cards are going to. take you know more weasel. when you need a direct question are you prepared for a change when you're. ready for a. freedom of speech. and freedom to.
3:20 am
dramas the. stories others refuse to. fix is changed. to picture. from around the. globe. from moscow international let's get straight back to our breaking news story for you this hour russia's federal security service has confirmed the death of terrorist leader. let's get more now from caution about joining us live here on the program for the very latest steph has been a full sea claimed many many times is it certain now that he is dead. it's true
3:21 am
russia's most wanted man is indeed a debt now russia's federal security service has confirmed that russia's notorious terrorist of the leader of the. terrorist organization as well as he's one of the internationally wanted terrorists doco march has been killed and a yes train operation was conducted that was carried out by russia's security forces now i have to say here that this is indeed not the first time that such news appear and there has been a number of reports previously of him being killed but this is the first time in russia's federal security service has announced his death now doc omar else was behind a number of notorious really dad the terrorist attacks now he was a mastermind of the deadly terrorist attacks he was behind the moscow dumb idea
3:22 am
that bombing back in two thousand and eleven which left thirty six people killed he was also behind the moscow metro suicide bombings back in march twenty that in which thirty nine people were killed he was the he also masterminds of this school siege in back in two thousand and four now that school siege lasted for over three days now over three hundred people were killed to do read these days and most of these people were children a cell for some time. he has been internationally recognized as terrorists and he was on the most wanted list of a number of countries and now many people say that he is doubtful will put its impact on bringing stability into russia's north caucasus region that has for a long time been considered to be quite volatile. thank you.
3:23 am
now while diplomats seek a way out of the crisis in ukraine washington's talk of more sanctions against russia was becoming more aggressive with america's debt ceiling rising ever higher some doubt it can remotely afford any serious moves and it's not just the sale of government bonds at risk or the luxury housing market also likely to take a hit is artie's were an important. in america's most expensive real estate market russian buyers have headlined some of the flashiest trophy sales to buy expensive apartments. apartments. and they often break records fertiliser king dimitri is linked to an eighty eight million dollar sale at fifteen central park west before that russian composer. held the priciest manhattan pad title with his forty eight million dollar condominium purchase at the plaza hotel
3:24 am
however due to a current chill in u.s. russia relations these extravagant indulgences may soon be a thing of the past presently the u.s. economic sanctions and visa restrictions against some officials in moscow the move has caused something of a boomerang effect against many that is real estate industry with some russian buyers volney their multimillion dollar or just. would not be able to come by and become so what's the real be able to. use this as they used before. before real estate broker eliot go god says two of his foreign and russian speaking clients recently delayed sales expressing cold feet about investing in the u.s. . financial district so. there's anywhere between six
3:25 am
and so this is quintessential new york victoria recently experienced a similar situation the client a russian legislator his budget between twenty five and fifty two million dollars his visit was scheduled for mid march and he canceled that few days before saying that this is not the time but also people who are in politics right now are kind of going along. party line and not moving forward to anything with us growing uncertainty among russian buyers comes as new luxury developments along fifty seventh street are being constructed with the global reach in mind. by the russians with a white girl walk shopping. for the browns and on the street will force a lot of. work to be part of those that are scheduled for development. between two thousand and fifteen and two thousand so when you saw that my torch
3:26 am
segment of the markets. america's luxury real estate markets may be just one of many industries already suffering from the effects of u.s. sanctions breena portnoy r.t. new york on the hour every hour always loads of stories for you one line including this one that r.t. dot com where you can read reports suggesting the u.s. is supplying syrian rebels with very heavy weaponry have a look at this pictures appearing to feature opposition fighters with vast high tech extremely powerful and tank weapons whether those come from by now that are to dot com also online for you as well artists in pakistan and joining together for the bugs campaign it's a bit to try and work raise awareness of the dozens of drone strikes into reach. back in about half an hour's time with more news here on r.t. international although for the meantime i will give you our the very latest here on r.t. international another documentary coming your way that will be in just
3:27 am
a moment thank you. welcome to the john siberian. waters of please. shiz you never go to. fun you never. things you never do. experience you'll never get. these surprise you will.
3:28 am
come off the try to. a polling. place for the story changing every minute. cut me. a laugh though of. my own life but. most of us think that some say the. most cases the most elite moments. sometimes from nothing which. is so neat and simple. it's not just the story can still be jobst if you see a stage eight lupita but speech was.
3:29 am
cut. this morning. i met my grit in the city ok so this is kristen talking and me and margaret are leaving criminal court house ok so there's my good as you can get out of the courthouse and katsu the courtroom that kelli is going to be and at first we didn't see him for a while and we were kind of nervous like there is here you know and then he came in the door and mike recognized him from the left side is more than i sure did that
3:30 am
just him to. me that it was it and it was in jest you got over the entire thing he said there was no comes with it that it was all accurate. and he said. to santa. basically it was actually that easy surprisingly the police and it was just like. you know i felt like i should stop to be like this thing that we wanted for some august finally happening and it's just one step closer. to getting that has just found him just to be free. to.
3:31 am
be found kelly stokes finally and we got him to sign an affidavit. one affidavit one. really revised statement by kelly is not enough to get a judge to let marcus out of business because. this is a really hard case the facts are so complicated and we're hitting all sorts of dead ends when we're trying to find witness says her own car her new. evidence and it can be really frustrating in part because i think i came to the clinic thinking that it would be a little easier to prove someone is in a sense i'll tell you the hardest thing we do. is to tell somebody who you who we believe might well be. sorry we can't help you i mean that's really hard. if people knew you know. how much we really
3:32 am
care and how much we'd like to help but we just came. out of a whole lot over. but i prayed every night for him. in his safe return back home but a lot of times i feel like you know. what is it ever going to occur i can't even begin to imagine what it's like and it's sort of like a constant loss. even a loss never being able to move on trying because it's not really god he's somewhere halfway. you know he's out with them and he saw fire match and i'm so.
3:33 am
i'd like to believe that it will be a good outcome but at this point we don't really have. to think that there will be a break in the case i truly believe and. i don't know when it will have been. but it will be i think something will bring. this kind of push with i don't give up. we will do whatever we need to do to take it to its fullest and that several suspect deck accounts people like my. love one of the other reasons we decided to get involved in representing marcus wiggins is because of what happened to him when he was you know a fourteen year old he was tortured in beat by
3:34 am
a group of officers who were under the command of john birch. the chicago teenager is following a civil rights lawsuit against former police commander john burgess the suit charges that marcus wiggins was falsely arrested by area three chicago policeman and beaten and tortured with electric shock the act allegedly occurred in one nine hundred ninety one when wiggins was thirteen years old warm police commander john bird was in charge of the area three at that time and the suit charges that men under burgess supervision violated the juveniles rights in an effort to force a murder confession out of him one thing that has been suggested to us is that this more recent charge of murder was made in retaliation for the fact that his family successfully sued these police officers some of the officer as who were involved in you know that the torture he suffered at age fourteen were very interested in
3:35 am
what was happening to him in this case in so that is something that you know we will be looking into her need the police when they're involved in that very day working and underneath him still on the force that can. get to them. and they know that this is going on like that these cases are being. considered. when marcus is case came to me i learned that the sergeants were under purchase of courage case and have the detectives work for birch going to became alert. i noticed that when marcus had reported to the audi home he had indicated in his
3:36 am
intake form that he had been beaten by those tactics in the face he had been beaten in the chest. his mother told me that he had. told her that he had been shocked that he had been shocked and she didn't know what he meant and she was quite upset by that and i thought well this was an interesting pattern practice that i should look into especially after having discovered that his odd had gone to the police station or found him curled up in a ball sucking his thumb on the floor. we've gotten all the magazine story fits into the bigger picture just like chill is not a song. and all people in this area you know i think their attitude would have been while they deserved it. you know they had to use some rough methods now and then that's not unusual get that's the same thing that's going on right now with you know if
3:37 am
the base in cuba are going to turn and if you've got a good answers how do you get if you have to use you know some rough methods i mean a lot of people the attitude is you know the end justifies the means touching suspected terrorists because you don't touch anyone using the same methods to torture suspected terrorists as you use to torture american civilians so you tell him i in no way suspects to a crime. i mean can you even. most of the town musical these roles amount to do some somebody your money beat you up you know some like that ok so you can beat up but you'll get what you don't get
3:38 am
almost killed. you know so you don't get elected to the youth you know these are going to like me is going to you but i'll go with thousand is going to do about it one time you know you are you and your whole life flash you're funny. you know and just you go along you know you're losing groups in your hands you know you've got here goes on is what i would have looked shocked to in the lectures and going to you but you jump on the floor legs like some out of door like that like you have the seasonal some people some delay haven't you come to new the stuff like they. don't. put all. of the out i'm on the. consumer. and i'm shocked that the shock effect is all. alleged i'm. going to model. a film last june on my. job and i want to just group the. phenomena.
3:39 am
i do. think the two are just going to slack off a blank down to nothing on the table. and they came around want to stay me and on time you sound so off signing off on that communal oh oh boy in a oh it took me you know to the audio home. why would you talk to somebody if you got the right evidence you don't have to just take them to court and if you think of this you got a. present you scared the system up and. john tyler chile costs a public defender what happened with with him so it made it such a unique case what to say you had an eyewitness who break the door of the family of the victim and told them their son had been shot to death just to clear this fire
3:40 am
to shut right and now they've got a problem because they've got an eyewitness who says well one person did the shooting and how do you explain away these other kids confessing why do you confess to a crime that you didn't commit. well you do it if you're torturing. judge strength or knew that that it was a dangerous situation when he issued his. his protective order. in this case for fear of what happened ordering no chicago police officers to have any content i don't want to quote oh. no you must know how all the border dogs to conclude course goal is to. the point of no. in the snow. that have static rockets were fired i mean. is there box he got fired few months later so we have this mode every tally stand
3:41 am
that we should be thinking about and it's better. i do believe strongly that marcus megan second murder case is related to his first murder case in ways that are not a privilege to speak about. that all. and i think this adds had a lot of question julie answered a lot of questions about the first case and it kind of about how it may be connected to the second case the subject the second case that i just can't understand how it could have been and yet they have still gotten away with it and just yeah i can understand the system and the i think you'll agree through the actual trial. pretty cool. the clearest order of thrones is about an old woman and george osborne that number a lot of building straight is convincing the old woman that they should be fretting
3:42 am
and then the old woman told george. defragged energy the green energy companies then and then george says yeah you'll need we need this texas. good. morning syria time. now i am glad parts of. my trucks bring top are. going to come. here and give. you all the. places they want to share and. we are
3:43 am
a lot of the hottest new something games they're seeing not a place that file for the ninety eight case but also as i say one case from marcus french. o'brian it was the same war that we're going to hear of the flares like when i was thirteen years old the. stick is here to do the same you. see here we get to where it's not going to be going to be misunderstood you will know this. to go here push going. on or talking about this and i get a little bit more home from work while we're night and he was
3:44 am
a little bit stuck call i'm just really process and yeah i was a police conspiracy and he liked to grow up and things that took place outside joe may help protect us. and watch half assed come to school and talk to. the police asked that. not all are and that's just reality we know for a fact that the police tried to set him up for two prior verse in we know we know that that happened did happen a third time maybe but we can't say for sure at this point we know he was tortured when he was thirteen we know that they tried to implicate him in a murder that occurred after he was tortured when he was thirteen years of age and he could not have committed it murder because he had an ironclad alibi and was living up in wisconsin at the time so there were members of the police department we know who did not like marcus wiggins did not like what he stood for and possibly
3:45 am
you know were out to get him can we prove it in this case not yet and so there's so that's where we're at that's that's where we're at. and i remember the feeling of. the prison. so horrible. i could walk out of the prison and i remember the sky was shining. and i felt very much what it was like to be outdoors. marcus was having the same experience. and this was going to go to stupid school to move. to.
3:46 am
the bonds are deep. here there is we're doing something very special rumors that you people who the wrongfully convicted. don't. know we have a situation here where all the players have told us themselves or told us through third parties that marcus we're going to not commit the crime the only person we've not talked to or heard from is cedric far away and he is the one you know he was the one who gave me you know testimony against marcus weekends and i just i don't know how we can on ravel this wrongful conviction without talking to him in finding out what he has to say i mean it's keys so yes it's katy. perry how did cycles are they not generated that search to moments that are entirely ok i
3:47 am
am not trying to translate or tell you the name of the style of the state. we want in on some the store manager and so on the board with you on katie has the information. because there are some wisconsin addresses and stuff and i you know i'm going to. give. us a simple little. such skull that has a higher chance acceptance of there could be someone else changed. it's going to. be just we're using the oh my gosh that you know with constant connection. that santa claus i'm sure are looking silly you reduce world that's easy. to do not like homicide reason prison you know where he is what most of my time shows are you know we've got to find out all we get is either call the correctional
3:48 am
institution find out what there was or whether it was on our hands. and then we just go look if we don't write a letter we just go. it's going to tear through there you. just are going to miss him just because you're indian. predicting your arms race you. know you're trying to get your tree limb here is that. you could say as an ambulance had a crowley does allow. not just as hers to be his prey and not have said this is the biggest break and the case that we've had to stop fingers crossed. it's are you listening to you listen to this it is.
3:49 am
exhibit to see daniels so much against him and. hello. you are able to interview senator carr like. you are you just a no shock to see our whole team did not see the reality. there . but he said to be the police did our best i've thanked him. and he said that the police did mark it's wrong that's interesting he said no it was going to show us all. where point by. us and they showed him a picture it works we're going to meet for the elevator because we didn't before the lineup gets huge. he was telling the boss that was all that was bad and they said that. night. and i kept going back.
3:50 am
i've and they showed that picture to him before he views the lineup. to pylea was a last minute support. he clearly confirmed that the police wanted marcus in prison they wanted him to send as a red badge to revealing the misdeeds of their colleagues when he was thirteen. they could witnesses under pressure to quit the think americans as a retaliation for john. moving into. anything that will bring john into the public eye and under scrutiny like a trial such as this is great for my case because it just makes this case that michel martin it's a real advantage to us to reward the media and the city. john birch was seen arriving from portugais once the building was read he was taken out
3:51 am
of the dirksen federal building away from public view. jogged urges down guilty of lying about the torture of. birds now for some five years in prison. where she pleased. local law is supposed to uphold it. when you look at everything we've collected and you start connecting the dots you see that this case begins with police torture and it ends with police intimidation and police retaliation and the same detectives who were involved in the torture of marcus wiggins were involved with taking statements from witnesses who now claim that they were forced to tell a lie at trial and so i think it be end of the day we have got what we might call a verge. when you look at all that we have done at the end of the day there's not
3:52 am
one witness not one piece of paper that is inconsistent with marcus wiggins's claim of actual innocence we still have some tasks left to do and today we'll make a list of what they are and. you know decide who is going to complete those tasks but i think now the time has come to put pen to paper and i think now the time has come to explain to our listener to the court why marcus's case should be heard why he's innocent and why he deserves a new trial. i was typing. the words now you expect if you please i need your initial story tonight the teaching gives me two years now. nobody's. talking

afghanistan's vote counting from sunday's presidential poll is overshadowed by the taliban threats and attacks continue to plague the country. the world's top headlines live from moscow it's r.t. international with me will receive thank you for joining us today and breaking news for you this hour russia's federal security service says international terrorist. activity has been neutralized that's after a number of reports suggesting he's being killed let's get more now from our medina caution about joining us live here on r.t. international we do know amount of steph has been you know falsely claimed many times is now a certainty. well russia's federal security service has announced that
4:02 am
terrorist activity has been neutralized well i have to say that it is. as been this news have appeared has appeared a number of times before and there has been a number of reports previously of him being down at mara for is a russian is a notorious terrorist he is the leader radical islamist terrorist organization that is located in russia's north caucasus and he's also one of the internationally wanted terrorists he was behind a number of the tourists a deadly terrorist attacks that russia back in twenty a laugh and he claimed responsibility for a moscow dumb idea that what you're reporting bombing that claimed the lives of thirty six people he was also behind the moscow metro suicide bombings in march when the town that killed thirty nine people he also must remind of the school siege in this town in two thousand and four after this three day siege over three
4:03 am
hundred people were killed and most of these people were children now for a long time he has been internationally recognized ass terrorists and many now believe that this news may actually put its impact on bringing security and stability into russia's north caucasus region that has for a long time been considered to be quite volatile or at all to be no question about thank you very much. are in the meantime here with the international seventy people have reportedly been arrested in the eastern ukrainian city of how to call off to a crackdown on activists. at a local government building which. scenes of violence overnight clashes erupted off the protesters were pushed out of the building we spoke to one activist who saw the events first. some ukrainian media have been showing molotov cocktails thrown at the building saying that it was activists who provoked the conflict in reality the group of men who introduced themselves as
4:04 am
policemen from poltava and suma entered the building and started attacking on armed people there using stun grenades and rubber bullets and they never showed their i.d.'s there were many injured among us they pushed us so but that's when they made more time card deals and threw them inside trying to smoke the moat but unlike them we never attempted to hurt them we were aiming for the walls later they saw reinforcements arriving at the building and fled. and in another eastern ukrainian city that of dawn yet a group of activists declared a sovereign state on monday it started as a peaceful rally drawing thousands but later protesters stormed the local administrative building a demanding an independence referendum they said their regional will hold the vote before the upcoming presidential election a journalist graham william phillips reports from done yet. but here i saw i do nansook so keep quiet since you hear all of what we can see behind this is
4:05 am
fortified barricades of the pro russian protesters now you can see the runway the several hundred here could even be hard to come out as you can see. we have also got a pretty russian demonstrators and the atmosphere here is calm but these people seem to be here to stay i mean here to demand what they see as their right now to hold the referendum here in donetsk. so it isn't just russian flags we're seeing we're seeing a range of sentiment very much a real pro don't pass what they want to hear bias is for their voice to be heard in kiev. and in the southern city of nicholai of supporters of the earth already using forcibly dismantle the protest camp set up by those who oppose the interim government. according to local media up to ten people were injured when that my down activists clashed with pro russian protesters stun grenades and firecrackers
4:06 am
were used we discussed the unrest in the east of ukraine with foreign affairs expert now bush of mallets he says kiev has alienated the south and east of the country but this continued anti russian rhetoric. what they've done is tear the country apart while there was a tacit even a tacit understanding that there was a constitution that there were rules that were going to be obeyed and that the interests of. all ukrainians whether russian speakers or ukrainian speakers sure whether it would be respected. and she was able to pull together at the moment it became obvious that she might done put just don't really care for any sort of law is false and only really care for law here on guns and everybody else decided to take guns up as well and. right stamey and this is a consequence of that action from the very get go it was obvious that the my john regime was very anti russian in every respect in the by stench and anti russian
4:07 am
ukrainian so it's discoursing has been horribly mishandled by the mind on people from the very start starting with the cool february twenty second and the leader of the radical right sector group dimitri yet off he says his group's actions were now all be aimed at fighting russia. moving in. the right sector is creating a special command which will coordinate the activities of all groups warts in order to fight russian aggression we're also coordinating our actions with ukraine's national security council and the right sector is considered a far right neo nazi group which has recently become a political party in ukraine its leader will take part in the upcoming may presidential election the fact that this group and many other foreign radicals have been snatching power since the february revolution in kiev is russia's biggest concern as well as wiring of people in the east of ukraine. the behavior
4:08 am
of ukraine's nationalists appears to be largely passing the us by american officials have openly confessed that they don't actually double check the information provided by the revolutionary leaders in kiev. so you're relying on the government in terms of what is point zero do you have any independent sources well of course we remain very closely in touch with the ukrainian government in that too we work closely with enough course they are on the ground so their information is are often very relevant to current so we need the secretary talked to mr glover on the one two three four and a lot of the have to treat said look the situation is like this this is what we have this is the true these are russian said eugene said to say he told him exactly what i what i just conveyed to all of you and you can certainly reach out to the russians for any readout from their aunt margaret in the meantime or the latest polls are suggesting few in the united states have or even want to
4:09 am
a clear picture of exactly what's going on in ukraine in fact an investigation by the washington post has shown that sixteen percent of americans don't even know where the country actually is and they were asked to point out ukraine on a world map of the dots show where people thought it was. the most accurate responses in red and the least accurate in blue as you can see many were very far off target there also appeared to be an interesting correlation the less accurate people were in the test the more they wanted the u.s. to intervene and the greater the threat they saw from russia nevertheless a c.b.s. poll shows the vast majority of americans don't want their country to intervene in ukraine sixty five percent of those questioned disapproved of any plans for the u.s. and nato to provide assistance to kiev an independent researcher and writer. and she thinks western interference in ukraine has already caused more than enough damage. the western governments. have
4:10 am
a desire to expand into the region and and who needed to surround russia may think that it was successful but it's inconceivable how they can even imagine it being a success when there is so much conflict in uprising their nature allies america's nato allies in europe and many kids who would in fact get a prize for these in fact took away the voice of many of the others who were not backing that they were backing the president and they were ignored i think and we saw of clashes and clashes all well unfortunately graphically. now russia's foreign minister has rebuffed america's accusations that moscow is destabilizing the situation in ukraine in a column published in britain's guardian newspaper he writes that russia has been supporting ukraine for years and accuses brussels on washington of aggravating the crisis by forcing kiev to choose between east and west nevertheless talk of
4:11 am
american sanctions against russia is getting a louder despite experts predictions that they will only back fire. coming up here in our tonight we'll take a look at one industry that's already experiencing decline and fall due to washington's approach. by for now here on the program as afghanistan counts the votes in his presidential election the attacks continue the latest roadside bomb has killed fifteen people in the south amid a taliban campaign to derail the polenta democratic transition of power early counting suggests a second round showdown between two former ministers i discussed a short while ago with artie's lucy catherine off shoes in kabul. this election it was a success in terms of voter turnout we saw an estimated nearly sixty percent of afghans heading to the polls despite the very violent run up to election day with the taliban carrying out a series of attacks aimed at disrupting the elections there wasn't an immediate
4:12 am
indication of the kind of widespread fraud that haunted the two thousand and nine vote when more than a million votes had to be disqualified but still much too early to take to to make any of decorations or assumptions here counting is still underway and it could take weeks to get the official results in order to allow for fraud and complaints to be investigated we did see a shortage of ballots across the country likely due to the high turnout but also concerns that ballot stuffing played a role that's something that still needs to be investigated and despite the high turnout there were small parts of the country that barely saw any voters such as districts in the wardak province where the taliban hold sway those kinds of areas couldn't be monitored properly because of the security threats and that means that we still don't have a complete picture of just how the elections went across the country the other issue is the candidates now in order to win based on saturday's results alone a single candidate needs to take more than fifty percent of the vote with men in the running it's difficult to see how that will actually happen at this point the two front are front runners pardon me appear to be danny and dr abdullah abdullah i
4:13 am
should stress that this is based on preliminary an official tallies by news organizations here he's a former world bank executive who has picked an extremely controversial running mate a man that even he described as a known killer militia commander general dostum who was accused of brutal killings in the civil war of the one nine hundred ninety s. . also has a running mate who's been branded as a warlord the other linked to a violent insurgent group and mr karzai is former foreign minister who is believed to be his favorite pick appears to be running behind but again it will take time to get the official count this is just based on the preliminary results and of course what all this means is that if no one candidate has a clear majority this paves the way for a runoff election likely sometime in may or early june and that means that afghanistan. could go through this whole process again and of course the big concern would be with the fighting season underway what will the taliban do if that happens and whether security will hold. and i want to.
4:14 am
security deal with washington which the outgoing president karzai has left hanging in the air the us is now winding down its combat mission but under the possibly agreement it could leave up to fifteen thousand soldiers on the ground at least for the next ten years america wants kabul to allow its troops to raid afghan homes while giving its soldiers total legal immunity so far afghanistan's been rather reluctant to meet those demands but the security pact with the u.s. is seen as crucial because many fear that local forces will be unable to maintain stability without the assistance of american troops are still to come here on r.t. international. hitting the pause. on route to a buddhist temple. if you delve into the mystery of why. even today decades after he seems to have died.

4:16 am
to have you with us here on t.v. today. good to have you with us here on r.t. international cuba says a twitter like service is just a tiny part of america america is campaign of subversion against it other projects include the mass sending of text messages and using the internet to broadcast television signals which are routinely jammed by local authorities the u.s. dismisses allegations it's trying to star run rest realities guy nature can reports not everybody is convinced. an investigation by the associated press has revealed that the us government has once again tried to steer protests in cuba by creating a messaging network which was designed to become the cuban twitter the social
4:17 am
network based on text messages was launched four years ago and was called a nail now at the time nobody knew that the program was conceived in washington and carried out by the u.s. agency for international development the associated press investigation reveals that that extensive efforts were undertaken to conceal the true nature of zooms and mailed using offshore bank accounts from companies and overseas servers the a.p. quoted a twenty ten memo from a contractor involved in the initiative saying there will be absolutely no mention of united states government involvement this is absolutely crucial for the long term success of the service and to ensure the success of the mission the mission being cuban spring of course apparently the idea was to create a service that would carry neutral content at the beginning but once it gained enough subscribers that's when it would be useful political purposes the a.p. quotes and other documents saying mock ad banners will give it the appearance of
4:18 am
a commercial enterprise you can't see any of it now because the program was shut down two years after its creation not clear exactly why some sources have said because of lack of funding or maybe because of lack of official so there are still questions at its peak though the network had around fifty thousand subscribers and for a while many unsuspecting cubans kept guessing why their new free messaging service stopped working all of a sudden i guess by the way apparently the initiative also appears to have had the civilians dimension to it according to the contractor mobile accord began building a vast database about the subscribers assessing their quote unquote receptiveness and political tendencies well now that these subscribers know who was really behind the service the white house says. they were not trying to dupe anybody at all they were just being quote unquote discreet here's jay carney saying of course the government has taken steps to be discreet but this is not unique to cuba u.s.
4:19 am
officials who argue there is nothing wrong about facilitating communication flow of information it's all protected under free speech fair enough but there is a fine line between informing people and for maintaining revolutions in order to align certain states with their interests in washington i'm going to check on our team. social networks have certainly proved useful in fueling unrest services like facebook and twitter are an easy way to mobilize crowds if you remember the iranian elections a few years ago that led to protests dubbed the facebook revolution and the arab spring also largely inspired by social networks it played a major role in the overthrow of regimes in tunisia and egypt and washington has been openly supporting the youth protests there so perhaps no wonder critics believe the covert program in cuba was also an attempt to cause our people and will in robinson a sociologist from the university of california he's among those who believe that
4:20 am
the project had nothing to do with promoting so-called freedoms of speech. the united states has spent between one thousand nine hundred six and two thousand and eleven over two hundred million dollars to destabilize cuba in the name of promoting democracy this particular and that document this is simply the latest in a long string of destabilization ever the us government has discovered it can use social media in order to intervene in other countries in order to mobilize and manipulate populations in order to achieve its desired political outcomes the us congress was arguing whether this is in line with u.s. law or it is not in line with u.s. law but that is irrelevant because this is an absolute violation of international law and a senior correspondent from germany's der spiegel magazine hold a stark believes governments are well ahead of the average user when it comes to exploiting social networks for political reasons. people realize that the internet
4:21 am
lost its innocence and that's probably the biggest achievement for snowden since he popped up last summer the overall approach of the n.s.a. but also the government is to have the whole he states that's how they say it so imagine the internet all information that is flowing every day as a haystack to the internet the intelligence agencies that want to acquire that hey stick to have everything almost all kinds of information and then to find out and go through it which information is necessary to have and which not and i think people need to realize whatever you do on the internet it's just on secure. while deploy about seek a way out of the crisis in ukraine washington's talk of more sanctions against russia is becoming more aggressive but questions remain whether it can really afford to do any serious moves but questions remain whether it can really afford to carry on like this here's why american exports to russia amounted to eleven billion dollars last year some american c.e.o.'s can be forgiven for being a little nervous about tougher sanctions over the crisis in crimea pepsi for

4:30 am
the supreme court is getting a rather important and unusual case the hobby lobby corporation which is owned by a more traditionally oriented christian family has a lawsuit challenging the obamacare mandate that employer provided health care plans have to pay for abortions and contraception this is a tough one which is first sound simple wealthy owners of hobby lobby feel that abortion is murder then they should have to pay for freedom of speech right but then couldn't some other companies say medical care is the devil's work prayer is the only thing you need so we're not going to pay a dime if the supreme court supports this and i think a lot of companies will be making moral stands in order to not pay for things but on the other hand why is abortion such a critical part of obamacare in the first place i mean have you ever heard of activists protest against people fixing broken legs curing fungal infections or doing laser eye surgery you haven't heard of them because these things are totally acceptable to almost everyone in america so paying for them as part of obamacare isn't a problem it is only a problem taxpayers or hobby lobby has to pay for something that is extremely controversial and considered an act of evil by half the people on the street
4:31 am
abortion being legal is one thing but doesn't need to be funded by everyone because so many people are against it but that's just my opinion. there i marinate and you're watching boom bust here are some of the stories that we're tracking for you today. first up we're talking jobs on today's show now the u.s. unemployment numbers recently came out and we're looking at a structural shift in the job market is perma temp at the new normal who will let you know coming to right then sticking with the jobs theme i sat down with max
4:32 am
wolff and daniel alford to talk about the types of jobs being created along with the global lust of supply and how it affects our labor markets interesting stuff that in today's big deal edward harrison and i are looking at the job creation index and what exactly is coming up and it all starts right now. with. the job numbers came out this past friday and while they were abysmal they do point to a potential shift in the job market one which the job numbers simply can't account for now since two thousand and nine more than one tenth of all job growth has been
4:33 am
in the short term stopping industry otherwise known as temp jobs now it's important to note that temp hiring often increases after economic downturns as companies look to control labor costs now according to career builder dot com since two thousand and nine more than half of all jobs created have been from temper contract work and not full time employment now many labor experts now believe that continued hiring of short term workers marks a structural shift in the job market the economy added twenty eight thousand temporary service jobs last month and that number represents fifteen percent of all job gains for the month of march the number of temp jobs has risen almost ten per. sent this past year as a whole and that's the greatest increase for any of the one hundred fifty categories tracked by the department of labor technological advances particularly in manufacturing have led companies to rethink how many permanent workers they need companies that reduce hiring amid the recession have learned that they can save
4:34 am
money in wages and benefits as well as increase their flexibility by using fewer permanent employees and the american staffing association estimates that eleven million people had attempt to zisha at some point last year and according to the bureau of labor statistics the average weekly pay for a temp job is one third less than the pay for all other types of jobs so the question is is perma temp and the perma temp economy the new norm well only time will tell but today it would be fair to say that yes it kind of is. that broad wall is a canonic pungent and teaches economics at the new school university graduate program in new york city now from a research perspective max's interests include international financial risks and
4:35 am
opportunities and in that vein max often hones in on the jobs in the jobs numbers now with the latest jobs numbers out this past friday maximised sat down to discuss this very subject specifically focusing on the job situation here in the u.s. now i asked max about hidden stories of stagnant wage growth and the return of low wage jobs in this recovery which lie behind these relatively positive numbers here's what he had to say. sure so we're tend to sort of focus on what the b.l.s. non-farm payrolls are comes out the first friday at eight thirty am eastern time every month is how many people did or didn't get a new job the net increase right and so where a wall of how many people are looking for a job. the unemployment rate those are very important numbers but think about it we have a six point seven percent unemployment rate the other way to think about that is we have about a ninety three percent employment rate where we ask about how good are the jobs do they have any job security do they have any benefits how good are the benefits and what do they pay we're actually saying how well are the as the average person that
4:36 am
named that ninety four percent of the public ninety five percent how well are they doing because what really life is about is do i make enough money to live can i go to the doctor could i ever retire if i do will i be absolutely broke will i be a burden to my children i get to go to a dentist can i go to a doctor if i need one and how likely am i to be fired at the whim of my employer or possibly mistreated blah blah blah so the lived experience of most americans and their earnings on which this economy is based seventy percent of the u.s. economy is that consumption is really about job security benefits and wages and we haven't told that story as a focal point but we partly haven't told that story for the last five years because that story's been pretty dark and so the truth is the average working american has had no raise in five years and they have the same or worse benefits but they're paying more for them so they have less job security in terms of adjusted for
4:37 am
inflation the same or a lower salary and they're less secure in their job and less secure in their benefits whether that is the health benefit component or the retirement benefit component now people give you lots of different reasons why that is in your opinion what is the reason behind the suffering a lot of things so there is a productivity revolution with information technology there's a continuing if not at fever pitch but a continuing outsourcing of a lot of even now relatively more skilled jobs jobs that once went to radiologists or ones went to accountants are being partially off shored and also mechanized right through new technologies that's a big thing but the other thing is the bottom line is the political mood in the united states has been a fairly empty labor which is not good for working people. generally and the truth is when unemployment is this high and people are fairly nervous and desperate about their job situation one doesn't usually find an aggressive group of folks demanding better conditions or wage increases because quite frankly they're kind of afraid that if they're the squeaky wheel and sort of getting the grease that the pink slip
4:38 am
. get the axe not the case then why should we be concerned about this low wage job sector coming back faster than higher paying jobs great question because the truth is we're setting up for what kind of future we're going to have if we're seeing people get fired as schoolteachers which we are as public sector workers and to some extent in some of the higher paid business services jobs which we've seen and we're seeing new jobs as security guards and cashiers and clerks and nonprofessional secretaries by the way those are the fastest growing categories in there that we're seeing jobs growing which have an average salary of eighteen to thirty five thousand dollars and we're seeing jobs leaving that have an average salary of forty six to sixty five thousand dollars right and so there's the numbers as a much smarter fellow than myself once said statistics are history with the tears wife dry right so there's a lived reality there which is the life you and your family have when you make eighteen thousand dollars a year with no benefits is radically different life right and the different
4:39 am
community that you're going to engage that if you have benefits and you make forty five thousand dollars a year right so you're looking at a different world a different ability to buy things and support the shops in your neighborhood a different ability to support your family your children your parents whatever it is that you need to use your money for you just in a different situation and that's do you think that we'll see a return to higher paying jobs in the near future i would like to think so i don't see it as an imminent likelihood that depends a bit there's usually a shakeout right when you have a bad economic crisis which we certainly did and the economy restructures and it is there's a transitional period between the old structure breaking down and the new structure taking hold that tends to be a very tumultuous period and wages will be a little lower. or that so there is some hope there's some reason to and we do see high wages by the way the problem is our sort of definitive characteristic economically including the labor market is inequality so we're seeing a small number of fabulously good very high paying jobs but we're seeing an awful large number of fairly poor kind of temporary benefit like security light jobs and
4:40 am
the problem that is that's hitting particularly hard vulnerable areas so that's a pretty hearty young people right so trying to get their first jobs out of school and it's very hard to communities with limited skills and or limited educational attainment and if you look at people with a college degree versus no college degree you're looking at unemployment rates in one case they're less than five percent in other cases more than nine percent so you really see a huge differential here in terms of our. economic and economic fairing you see in the politics too that's a supreme court that feels like freedom will be enhanced by allowing people to suddenly throw off the yoke of being only able to give one hundred twenty five thousand dollars to the but i mean these things about iraq and we talked about it yesterday on the show yeah these things do affect each other right so part of what happens if you sell political offices in an auction process which we are moving toward doing is the people who decide to bid on them and buy them how to effect a legal environment which isn't particularly empowering to low wage workers which
4:41 am
is not good for anyone in the long term probably wage workers that are new people entering the workforce or you know you want them to eventually move up in the air force and there's also myths about low wage workers so the historical myth was this is sort of pin money of stay at home moms so as i'm sure in forty years i'm not sure if it ever was but i know the last forty years was a statistics it's definitely true the idea is it's all teenagers by the way investing in the future last i checked isn't a bad idea but it's not mostly teenagers actually one of the largest categories in this is single moms in their twenty's and thirty's so these are people that we are counting on to support themselves and children on a wage that quite frankly puts you in a very difficult situation to support yourself let alone dependent children relatives what have you heard of and concerning now you also point out that the average hourly wages they fell in march now should we be very concerned about this and if so why so the average trend in average hourly wages we should absolutely be
4:42 am
focused on we're not it's a mistake one month's numbers declining by a few pennies which is the story of march quite honestly does not of trying to make it's not essential but it's an important reminder right that the end of of the month of march the average person who works in an hourly job in the united states sixty percent of the labor force took home less pretax inflation money than they took the month before and if we're trying to pull more people in the labor force which we are because so many people left during the long depression the downturn there. we're trying to pull them back in well you don't really seduce people back into labor market by saying like if you come here you can work harder than ever for less money right there's a reason you've never seen that in an ad and you're probably never going to unless it's some kind of ingenious reverse psychology it's not going to appeal to a lot of people right and that's the job offer a little number says is across the month of march american employers offer to their way their average hourly rate person come here work hard get less and that's the mediocre offer. time now for
4:43 am
a very quick break but stick around because when we return i'm sitting down with the founder and managing partner of westwood capital daniel alpert and then in today's big deal edward harrison and i are discussing the job creation index and as we head to a quick break here are a look at some of your closing numbers with the bell sticker out. welcome to the john siberian. what are the places you never go to. fun. things
4:44 am
you never do. experience you'll never get. the surprise you will. the clues george brandis about an old woman and george osborne at number eleven downing street is convincing the old woman that they should be fretting and then the old woman told george. and then george says. there's a. very serious thing. now you. are.
4:45 am
right. sir street. and i would think that you're. on our reporters when they're. in. the in the. welcome back to boom but now daniel alford is a founding partner of westwood capital and has more than thirty years of international merchant banking and investment banking experience in his book the
4:46 am
age of oversupply alpert discusses how the integration of china brazil india and other emerging economies have led to a drastic increase in the supply of labor capital and productive capacity now he argues that policymakers are using outdated supply side ideas to address a world that has too much supply now i start off by asking her to describe what the relationship between demand and supply of labor is in the globalized world. the best way to do it is to sort of discuss what the developed countries are right we talk about japan u.s. canada europe. at least western europe you know throw in some small places like australia new zealand. singapore operators singapore you're talking about eight hundred million people in a world of seven plus billion. so it's roughly ten percent of the world's population lives in developed. trees well when you removed the iron curtain and the
4:47 am
bamboo curtain and suddenly these formally socialist. countries became at least no longer it will they be nominally socialist they're no longer socialist in practice they developed market economy capitalist social right and they developed market economies and what you saw were three and a half billion people include india in that count which i do because they were very socialist. you know three and a half billion people who formally for all intents and purposes didn't exist i mean the only thing we had to fear from the soviet union was their weapons we didn't have to fear their competition and and and so as a practical matter. and certainly china was was was well removed from the situation so suddenly within a very short period of time and i like to draw this at a very convenient year nine hundred eighty nine because that was the year the berlin wall came down and the chinaman incident happened in china in a very short period of time you saw three and
4:48 am
a half billion people suddenly thrust who never existed suddenly thrust into the free market economy against a mere eight hundred million and so of course the eight hundred million who enjoyed really primacy throughout the world and certainly were the only complete competition for each other were overwhelmed and that's where the this huge glut of labor will belabor this huge glut of global production capacity the enormous number of factories that the chinese are building and everybody else and then finally all the money that we send to buying those chinese products has to sit somewhere and since it's not being converted back into you on it it won't be simply because they don't want the value of the yuan to rise they have to invest that back into u.s. dollar denominated securities or euro denominated securities and that is why global interest rates are near zero and there's no there's no reversing that process until you find another source of demand another sort you know eight. get the chinese to
4:49 am
start start actually consuming or you know somehow have sort of miraculous. increase in developed world global demand which is very unlikely given our employment situation it's a very good breakdown of a very long issues thank you for doing that now in the age of oversupply you you suggest that major new investment in infrastructure is the way forward essentially this is how it's going to help is not on paper i wrote called the way forward there because. it's not only going to restart growth but it's also going to lay the foundation for prosperity essentially is what you're saying but is there a danger like in china of creating more oversupply the infrastructure then you know we need well you know you told me that you lived in singapore and you really thought that you know as a practical matter there were more first world than in the united states that's only three million people and it's a giant country club but yes it is. but as but as
4:50 am
a practical matter. you have the same thing occurring in coastal china the same thing obviously has been the case for many many years in japan. and you have other places throughout the developing world from an infrastructure standpoint may have been like years behind only twenty years ago and there are now light years ahead so what do you do if you have a developed world with very high standards of living very high incomes high asset values high pretty much everything. but excess labor right what it would you do do you do a lot of the labor just sit on the sidelines languish. if in fact you don't if you have deteriorating infrastructure which clearly is true for western europe and the united states. really the only thing that you can do in order to create domestic demand is put people to work on the private sector has done everything we've asked of it they're trying desperately to create jobs both here and in europe but with no dimming. and with no you know with supply so exceeding demand no one's going to
4:51 am
build another factory no one's going to build another place to make widgets or television sets or whatever in the united states or fridge or raters or anything simply because there is this massive oversupply of productive capacity elsewhere and freely trade will be the developed world so what that leaves you for with the question is well you have these people who are willing to work you have the work that needs to be done and by the way you have all this excess capital that sloshing around the world and very very cheap well it doesn't take a genius to figure out you put the capital together with the work in the workers and you put and you actually create demand because at what and this is a standard keynesian formula it's nothing particularly outrageous now i want to ask you about this the unemployment rate it's low we have ticking down words and so much so that the fed has decided to suspend the evans rule and some hawks believe this is because the fed is worried basically about inflation and because the economy is heating up for a better word but what's your take on the situation as
4:52 am
a whole well i think that the majority of the people at the fed including here at the new york fed had lunch with them on monday. you know they they believe that we are not in an inflationary environment and it's pretty clear that we're not because we don't have any inflation in fact one of the things that i keep saying and i find so interesting is that during this q e two policy which is intended to heat up inflation that's that's what you want do you want to grow nominal g.d.p. with this policy making money cheap and scaring people into risk assets and all this other stuff and the problem is is that during the course of this not only. you know have has inflation fallen but actually if you look at the total of the interest rates were lower when they started them when they ended so it's pretty freaky but the reason for that is that people really truly don't understand the price mechanism as it exists today. we've got
4:53 am
a massive deflationary pressure bearing down on the on the western countries and it all comes from and japan as well and it all comes from two things one is yes we have a huge debt overhang remember we went within within eight years from one thousand two thousand two thousand and eight we went and doubled the amount of debt outstanding in the country in the u.s. from from about twenty four trillion to fifty two trillion and you know you look in every sector i mean housing you've doubled it in every area just you know massive amounts of additional debt well it's very hard once you have growth in incomes which we don't have it's very very hard to pay off that debt and that creates a problem of people needing to spend the money they're receiving paying off their debts rather than spending it on what they're supposed to be doing which is consumption right right and and that's called debt deflation irving fischer first
4:54 am
wrote about it during the great depression and it's pretty much textbook economics everybody understands that but on top of it we have this overall issue of oversupply which itself is massive deflationary if you create an excess of anything it's going to push prices that's very simple it's very basics so if you have an excess of labor if you have an excess of production relative to demand it's massively deflationary and so far what people think people blame q.e. two they said didn't do anything q e three or didn't do anything in to a certain extent that's a valid criticism but there's a there's something that its absence would have done that people don't appreciate and that is that the full brunt of global deflationary forces both domestic from debt deflation and and oversupply from abroad would have literally tank this economy and now the commies on terrible footing right now simply because all q e three really did is it boosted. asset values boosted up real estate prices boosted
4:55 am
up stock market values with doing very little for the real economy and as we can see wages have been anemic hiring is very very slow pace. so so you know if the i think everybody at the fed is quite right at this point there's no point in continuing it it's not going to do any marginal benefit. it's a big deal time and i'm joined as always by the one the only mr edward harrison and today we're talking about what the u.s. can do to promote a stronger job market that's going to be discussing now you've heard from both max wolff and daniel alpert about the job situation but now we want to look at how this all fits into our macro economic position should we be tentatively happy and optimistic or gloomy and apprehensive take a look at this graph from gallup there we go there it is now the dark green line
4:56 am
that's popping up there it is it shows the percentage of u.s. workers who say their employer is hiring workers now about like or in line underneath that shows us workers here say their employer is firing workers and as you can see in two thousand and like green line it jumps above the dark green one which means that there were more employees being fired than being hired however since then things have been looking up so as to what is the general attitude towards this jobs report is it partly cloudy with a chance of rain or is there something else going on here what's the deal different partly cloudy because the missing piece is what daniel and and max was saying which is what about the wages and what kind of jobs are we getting rather good jobs or are they bad jobs or you know is this is good is the job i used to have. and what kind of money am i getting in the job so people are hiring but as you were saying in your head law it's a lot of temporary workers and it's not necessarily great wages so you have to
4:57 am
wonder you know where this is headed over the longer term what do you think upon a time i want to ask you your thoughts on i think you know in the united states that the temporary job market has become a really big part of the job market overall and their uses in order to. you know boost up the job market as we go. but. you know when things start to go down there the first person is fired and therefore you can actually see with the temporary workers and what's going to happen in the overall job market it's like everyone's anticipating a return to bad times and whether or not they're not signing up for full time employee road it could be you could not well see you know i want to bring up another graph here to provide some context to all this all this information service up now here we go now that dark green line right there that line shows the official unemployment rate or you three which is that six point seven percent and the light green line that shows you six unemployment rate which is the official unemployment rate plus workers who are underemployed and that means that there are part time
4:58 am
workers that they want full time work now i mean look at this graph we're still in really bad times in a bad place in terms of employment as well as the context of this positive outlook and should be glad that unemployment hasn't shot up to seven percent you know be counting our blessings are looking at those two graphs that should i think they were pretty good because what you noticed is before the great recession the difference between the two law was smaller than it is after the great recession so the two sort of went up with each other and they shot way up but then when they shot up the use six love was much higher than the youth as compared to before the great recession so you can see that the you six lot is telling you that there's this hidden unemployment picture that's not being captured in the real and the is the headline rate that we see the use six is sort of the broader the most broad definition of unemployment and that's saying to you that the headline rate isn't
