not the sheriff. you would have thought they would have learned something after serving as george w. bush's useful idiots in the lead up to the invasion of iraq. it is vitally important that the press remains rooted in a fact based universe especially when we enter an era when truth and fiction are becoming indistinguishable. watched the hawks founded by three young americans who love their country but we have to constantly question our government watching the hawks brings the stories the give voice to the voiceless we dig a little deeper we get the stories than the average one else is afraid to touch is afraid to talk about because they don't want to upset their corporate sponsors or interrupt their government access now is the time more than ever but we need to
question more. we're in this post truth world current world we're going to have to matter again to about educating people and giving them contacts instead of telling them what to make dialogue is far more valuable than to make. you guys i made a professional is powerpoint to show you how artsy america fits into the greater media landscape is not all laughter all right we are a solid alternative to the bullshit liberal or conservative and as you can see from his bar graph we don't skew the facts either the talking head left these talking head righties oh there you go above it all to look at world arts the americas in the spotlight now every lead might have no idea how to classify as and it actually took me way more time than i care to admit. i'm just in turkey.
if you tuned in last week you know we took the world according to jesse to aspen colorado where we attended at the nexus earth conference today the governor and dr ron paul discuss the imperial war machine but first jesse joins me from minnesota with some words on north korea should show starts right. now. governor corporate media is hyping up a potential nuclear war with north korea it's been seventy two years since nuclear weapons were first developed and dropped on hiroshima and nagasaki the destruction was so catastrophic that humans have not deployed them since but now some pundits are going as far as to promote a preemptive us military strike because diplomacy has continuously failed with
north korea but that is because the only option presented to kim jong un and his father before him has been for them to give up their w m d's the nine hundred sixty eight international treaty on the nonproliferation of nuclear weapons prohibits countries from developing nuclear weapons however the united states france russia china and the united kingdom are exempt from these rules because they had already had these weapons prior to signing the treaty. therefore these countries are considered the world's only legal nuclear weapons states now several other nations do have nuclear weapons like pakistan and india which have not signed the treaty israel though it never is minute it most likely also has nuclear weapons more than two decades after the cold war these eight nuclear states in total still possess nearly fifteen thousand nuclear warheads. diplomacy has continuously failed so
wouldn't an international treaty banning everybody from possessing nuclear weapons and developing them be the best way moving forward. well in a perfect world yeah sure in a perfect world all the countries that have nucular weapons would destroy them and get rid of them but unfortunately we don't live in a perfect world do we. and how would you know if somebody actually did destroy all their nucular weapons of the eight countries that have them what type of checking could you do to ensure that because i'm sure the united states should include aid everybody would save a got rid of all their new killer weapons but i'm sure they'd have a few doors away for just such an occasion where they would feel we might need them now the problem one of the overlying problems is the us and i hate to sound over
and over again i'm not anti the united states of america i love my country but one of the things about our foreign policy we tend to bully countries that don't have nucular capabilities where countries that do have them we don't use bullying tactics on them show all these countries throughout the world they want to gain nucular power and nucular weapons so that they can relieve themselves of unjust united states foreign policy sometimes of bullying pushing him around telling them what government they should have this or mad and all the things that our country does internationally unfortunately it's based somewhat on who has the bomb and who don't have the bomb and again in a perfect world we'd all get rid of a this was or something that was designed in the manhattan project. that it turns
out to be probably the most dangerous biggest headache mankind has ever seen or will ever see maybe. absolutely now north korea has also been thanks and many times and yet if the nuclear program keeps going on so do the things really work and things like they don't. well do you know. better to always be talking than bombing you know all these three i get scared when my president tells the secretary of state you're you're blowing smoke you're wasting time i have an alternative of what war war is an alternative people remember something and remember and well when war happens it's because politicians failed it did you hear me it's because they failed it that's why you have war
when political politicians fail so if we end up going to war with north korea it's because our politicians failed and so did theirs why is it we won't talk directly to these people i understand he's a goof when you look at him but i write come from the world a wrestling there's a lot of goofy looking people you sometimes have to work with but that aside talking you're still better than bombing why aren't we opening roads using china using russia combining all of our of our elements and talk to these people and get them to maybe see the errors of their way because once the triggers polled there's no going back there we should do everything we can possibly do to avoid war or not go into the realm of living it what's the end result we wipe north korea off the face of the earth then we'll all be
happy. well i won't be happy because many people will be dead people who will die you know we just have this big shooting in vegas will stop and many people may die with nuclear bomb. innocent people across the world it makes vegas kind of pale doesn't it salute lee now since it doesn't look like global nuclear disarmament is going to happen anytime soon because of these exemptions there is another case to be made in allowing kim jong un to keep his nuclear weapons the official u.s. position that kim should abandon these weapons has only increased north korea's arsenal now up to sixty nuclear weapons in fact north korea's entire nuclear program is fueled by its fear of the united states of this fear dates back to the korean war of one nine hundred fifty at the time the u.s. intervened backing the south korea to this day american troops are still on the
ground and present along the border between the north and south forever reminding kim that he needs to protect himself. gov can keep these new for survival as you said just look what happened to saddam hussein and get off it when they gave up their weapons of mass destruction. if they ever really have them or not you know we that's kind of an assumption we've all made that at some point they did have some type of weapon of mass destruction i'm not so sure about it especially in the case of iraq and if they were using weapons gas weapons and all that chances are they got them from us you know they didn't make them themselves you know we we need to remember something. especially in lieu of what's going on in los vegas and things like that you notice not a word has been said about the united states government who's the biggest weapons dealer in the world in the world we shall more weapons than anybody else
absolutely now i haven't seen any evidence that would be the first to deploy a nuclear weapon do you agree that he would or that he wouldn't. well he scares me because he sure firing missiles all over the place and what do we need that for and he scares me because he's testing them underground now that's not good for anybody and i find it ironic there may be nothing to it but i found it ironic that he blew off a big nucular blast underground in north korea and it wasn't but a couple weeks later mexico city suffers this massive earthquake now i don't know if there's a connection there or not but blowing off nucular bombs underground camps seem too good to me to do on a regular basis if you ever do it at all so he has to be stopped from his experimentation that could well harm the entire world and i know we're guilty of it
too we did that showed it a lot of other nations but it's time for us to prevail with cooler thoughts and this new killer obsession. all right we've got to cut to a quick break but when we return former congressman dr ron paul joins the governor for a deeper look at the military industrial complex. that your. shoe. rejected tonight is a comedy news shoulder not defect by the corporate media. would you go after the corporations that just more your lives profit over people at every turn. redacted
tonight for me it's like medicine it's like a cancer joke from all the stress that the news puts you under redacted tonight is a show where you can go to cry from laughing about the stuff that's going on in the world as opposed to just regular crying we're going to find out what the corporate mainstream media is not telling you about how we're going to filter it through some satirical comedic lenses to make it more digestible that's what we do every week hard hitting radical comedy news like redacted so night is where it's at. i do not know if the russian state hacked into john podesta e-mails and gave them to wiki leaks but i do know barack obama's director of national intelligence has not provided credible to support his claims of russia i also know he perjured himself in a senate hearing planned three months before the revelations provided by edward snowden he denied to be n.s.a. was carrying out wholesale surveillance of the u.s.
. the hyperventilating corporate media has once again proved to be an echo chamber for government claims that cannot be verified you would have thought they would have learned something after serving as george w. bush's useful idiots in the lead up to the invasion of iraq. it is vitally important that the press remains rooted in a fact based universe especially when we enter an era when truth and fiction are becoming. indistinguishably. in case you're new to the game this is how it works now the economy is built around corporations corporations run washington or washington controls the media the media
and both the voters elected to businessman to run this country business equals power boom bust it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. the war. over the course of dr ron paul's political career he has served as a republican and libertarian dr paul and jesse have opposing views on many issues they're both members of a third party they've both served in the u.s. military and neither support foreign intervention and asked then they had a lot to talk about dr ron paul that is a hall facing for joining me a subject i want to get with you on is one that i know is close to both of us and we really sit on the same side it's a simple subject cold war i was in mexico last winter when when they fired the
rockets into syria and i came back to the country going did i miss something when did we allow the president to shoot what was it sixty rockets i forget the number in two or another sovereign nation without a declaration of war and the country applauded the wheels it was a lot of it and i thought what is going wrong with the united states of america when you have to have the congress vote to go to war and now we arbitrarily allow our president out a we're moving can fire in fifty rockets and says they're for peace and you should never see anybody in washington that allows a president to go to war in an unconstitutional fashion that they just march off and start these wars and then they say we can't have dessert the troops there you're on a merry you don't care about freedom you know the measure of this is you know dr
paul you and i both served in the military you as a doctor and me as a knuckle dragging frog man. i've never met or seen a rocket the does anything for peace or a weapon that you could honestly say well this is a peace weapon they only do one thing they kill and destroy so hot of the do this transition of getting people to believe that weapons equal peace yeah well there's a lot of lobbying for that sure and you know back in the seventies i can't remember which the tank was they were building these tanks who's going to invade us when we're going to have this you know tank war and it's all selling weapons and invasion you know at the latest one that really burned me was this new aircraft carrier named after gerald ford for five billion how many billion dollars many billions of dollars and here's what got to me about a first of all he comes from the state of michigan right so we can build this forty
five billion dollar aircraft carrier like we don't have enough of them while the people of flint are still drinking poisoned water. so building this carrier was of a higher priority than giving people and gerald ford's own state clean and clear water and cleaning up flint michigan water if this crazy attitude toward north korea breaks out and there is hostilities even a guy like the one could probably take an aircraft carrier you know a good missile can do that you should have to have a nuke to do that and and look look at what they did in yemen a few years ago they took a ship out there. and just and that was just you know small bombs and to me it's am equated now what do we need ships going from c.d.c. all over the world supposedly defending our freedom here's another thing that offends me as a veteran and i'm
a vietnam veteran when they tell me thank you for defending our freedom and i sit dr paul and i think wait a minute i wasn't alive in world war two so i'm from korea on there hasn't been one war in my lifetime where our freedom was in jeopardy most of them let me qualify that every war our freedoms are in jeopardy because they passed patriot act the danger is here i'll. i understand i'm going to get you know we are as artists here in the war hundreds here but it's but again i hear trump the other day saying our pilots our sons are now flying the same jets that their father was well what's wrong with that if they work. why do they have to be upgraded if they work they still want to have a dog fight. here i don't know but but all of this crazy military spending and then i look today right now we spend all this money on wars throughout
the world we have two wars we need to fight right here at home it's called houston texas and florida that good just got devastated as bad as any war that's ever worse than anything that's ever hit the united. state's mainland right it's just think of all the money we have spent. overseas since world war two ended if that money had been left in this country to let wealth grow i mean we would have forty four million people on food stamps we wouldn't have a dwindling middle class we would have the real unemployment rate much higher than they talk about because the labor participation rate shows that people aren't fully employed but wealth drains it's insanity to think that war improves your economic condition and improves the conditions of the war manufacturers and men know all the wars are fought with this idea really that there's nothing the military can do in
these wars to actually achieve victory. every because they don't know who the and they don't define the enemy they don't know where and so it's almost like and pitch a wars they're all because you can't you can't you can't go to the military today and say ok if you do point a and point b. we then can declare victory no if you don't have an enemy and you have an opening to do much better with a country like russia we go out of our way to turn it upside down and say they're our enemy and we're at war and there will be a day that will come when our economy gets weaker in a dollar's challenge and when we get weekend those people we have offended they will not be our close allies we are a sense that already people are starting to turn against us i said publicly as a veteran i hang my head. and i hang my head and shame that we're now looked at as the united states is the country to fear no longer were the savior anymore we're
now the devil the savior so you say so anyway dr o'grady i want to very much it's always a pleasure to talk to you and as i told the people when i went to washington i knew there was one i could count on out there and that's dr ron paul thank you for. the war. yes all right we're almost out of time but before we go governor i've got some fan comments and questions for you now bennett hall says our so-called leaders possessed by incredibly logical blindness think violence is a method to resolve human conflict what do you say to that. well i figured violence is not should not be used to solve any conflicts or if you can avoid it violence serves no good violence. performing violence just creates more violence violence leads to violence there's no doubt about it you can look at anything in life and
understand that avoiding via. once is a good fairing all right creighton minister says they should bring back the civilian conservation corps first for the myriad of issues and able body on earth. what you think about that well that that's a nice thought you know it's it's social service it's you committing yourself to you know doing public service but again that us to come from with fear and you can't force people to do things like that that's that's nationalism and it's force patriotism it should come from within you as an individual to want to contribute trust me it comes out a whole lot better that way than forcing people to do it in another manner. and governor i'd love to hear your final thoughts about your friendship with dr paul how long have you guys known each other. well ron paul and i go back to you know ron's a republican i'm an independent we defer one place we do differ is on you know the
abortion issue i believe that a woman has a choice dr paul believes in more restrictive but it doesn't mean we can't get along it doesn't mean we can't get things done you're never going to agree with someone ever one hundred percent we're human beings but i greatly respect ron paul and i'll tell you why when i did television shows or when i would go out to washington doing conspiracy theory and all that dr paul would always talk to me he didn't run and hide and i'll tell you what it came to talking about the federal reserve and the monopoly of our money there's not a better guy you can talk to than dr ron paul and people still follow him tremendous when he spoke in aspen the crowd when the fed they went into a chant fred so ron paul is still a power broker and i'm happy to say a friend of mine that you already said that you don't necessarily agree on the
abortion issue when it comes to health care what about your position on free markets do you disagree or agree there. well i think we agree for free markets but they have to be free and they have to be fair and they have to be balanced and you know isolationism doesn't work any more you live in the world and you need to have a relationship with the rest of the world yet you can still accomplish that and protect your own country in the process. will our current leaders can't seem to work together and get along the way that you guys do is so way advice would you give our current leader. well i can't give him advice because the problem is this you look at ron paul and you look at dennis kucinich these are not. yes men these are not men who are in lockstep with the republicans and democrats the problem lies there if you're elected a republican or democrat and you rely on that political party to get you elected
which most do will venue have to do their bidding then bills come out you don't even have to read them they tell you how to vote on them imagine how sick that is and the reason ron paul and dennis kucinich are good because they might be democrats and republicans but they're not in lockstep they're their own man in their free thinkers and they vote accordingly. governor you're against foreign intervention but as you know the united states says that it needs to go in for humanitarian purposes because people are suffering that's often a lie should we just leave them alone and say i have all our what do you think the best way is to address this issue. well i mean humanitarian issue we should be involved in just as other countries should be involved in humanitarian issues here we've just gone through one in houston texas and florida we can use all the help we can get i remember when katrina hit down in louisiana and fidel castro offered us
one hundred doctors and we turned him into wa wa who would know more about hurricanes than cuba and fidel when he was alive and yet we turn he holds out an olive branch and we slap it away well that's ridiculous things and events like this humanitarian around the world should be used to bring us together not separate us there's one thing where people can rally whether they know the language or not you understand humanity and helping your own human being at a time of need governor do you think people who have ideas like you are ron paul who are sort of outside of the mainstream have any chance to get to the presidency . we always have a chance i mean donald trump proved you can win there's always a chance of it but it's very difficult defeating the two party the two gangs as i
call them and all the political money that sooner do so by the corporations today very very difficult to as a third party or independent thinker to be able to win and when you do when you're faced trouble like i did as governor and you'll face trouble a lot like trump's facing right now but a lot of it he brings it upon himself absolutely thanks for tuning in everyone send us your comments on facebook. in twitter be sure to check back next week because we'll be back with more from the open road featuring advice from governor ventura to two governor hopefuls the colorado gubernatorial candidate stop by for advice on how to run a successful campaign and always remember people stay vigilant when government lives that means the truth becomes a trader think about it. just see. what. the world according
to. what politicians do you should. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to express. yourself want. to go right to the press this is what the three of the people are. interested in the water. there should be. there's a real irony going. responsible choice in the people and there is always. a wholesale surveillance you feel you have already while as soon as the president has
used the. story goes it's garbage it's real it's. our culture is awash in law dominated by streams of never ending electronic elucidations that. fiction until. they are indistinguishable. society politics. and political politicians and celebrities are two ruling parties are in reality one party for. those who attempt. this. breathless universe of me just to push through the cool and exploitation of me a little forced so far to the margins of society including by a public broadcasting system that has sold its soul for corporate money that we
might as well be squeaking against an avalanche. we must. spend countless hours poring through documents that tell the story about the ugly side of. corporate media written uses to talk about these foreigners. i'm going to paint a clear picture about how disturbing. corporate conduct has been and mark. these are stories that you. know you're close to the american. question.
today i couldn't. so i was i was thinking this week i was drinking my coffee and i thought have you ever thought about all of the people of all political stripes who are on the happy with this country heading towards a disgusting dystopian right wing corporate hole controlled by two parties that are actually just one party like if you thought of all if you thought if you bring of all the good imagine if we all teamed up to beat this thing instead of even fighting it just as.
