a possible link to russian metal cambridge c.e.o. reached out to julian assange of wiki leaks seeking access to e-mails from hillary clinton's private server there's no evidence ricky leach had such information but wiki leaks was releasing e-mails from the computers of other democrats which authorities say were hacked by russians and another trump advisor roger stone great innings i actually communicated with this what how do you even make the connection what's your logic if someone speaks to a songe their russian agent there is zero connection here other than the word russia being in every other sentence there is only one explanation c.n.n. report must have been put together by a random generator literally this explanation makes more sense than cnn's report at savage the dia and see oil trump the russians
11:33 am
cambridge how because we've got the keywords just fill this. basis with whatever he also directly message to russian hacker he says he did nothing wrong and despite another claim that cambridge had ties to a russian oil company the campaign insists there were never any links to russia are you comfortable that the trunk campaign through their cameras analytical had a connection to wiki leaks. they did have a connection wiki leaks let me demonstrate if you are of average height and your birthday is in july you are closely tied to a sound see how easy it is let's do this again if you like snow and the russians like snow you are aligned with russia or if you want lots of money and oligarchs have lots of money you are susceptible to russian
11:34 am
influence it's all nonsense but who cares it's about getting the keywords out there about confusing and confounding not explaining or investigating he words people key words the russians everywhere. it's been revealed that the much praise security of the virtual currency bit coy and may have indeed been compromised by the us national security agency classified documents provided by n.s.a. whistleblower edward snowden demonstrate the efforts by the agency to track down users of the currency it's something previously thought to be practically impossible is are to use illegal patrik. question what's in it for bitcoin buyers besides the price boom last year when its rate kept go and up people got themselves to was to get rich but bitcoins have been luring enthusiastic with something else
11:35 am
since long before the twenty seven thing boo no central bank control privacy and transaction anonymity i'm sorry this could have all been an illusion you haven't followed at snowden or have you. the n.s.a. worked urgently to target bitcoin uses around the world according to classified documents provided by snowden so let's look into the national security agency files which caught the eye of the intercepts journalists back in the days when the bitcoin was only worth less than one hundred bucks march twenty third teeing the u.s. was already working hard on tracking down crypto wallet holders and the n.s.a.'s number one priority among the new currencies was bitcoin they did come up with a mysterious tool called monkey rocket and guess what analysts of found value in the monkey rocket access to help track down sanders and receivers of bitcoins how
11:36 am
much value is the question here that no one will give you an answer to but come on the n.s.a. is almighty when it comes to getting hold of all kinds of data so no matter how underdeveloped monkey rock it was back then the agency could have filled in the missing puzzle pieces using a stunning array of other spying tools the whistleblower suggest with this sort of information in hand putting a name to a given bitcoin user would be easy monkey rock it is also described in the files as a non-western internet anonymization service how many bitcoin owners have so far been tricked by the n.s.a. into using this product that we can only guess there was never trust in the institutions like the n.s.a. ever since know it and originally came out with those revelations a lot of it is on the pretense of stopping terrorism but most of the governments
11:37 am
want to know what all of their citizens are doing all of the time so nothing really changed a reading of the latest reports over a block chain and what the n.s.a. is trying to do to track it i'm not surprised at all because it was never really doubt anonymous and one people were thinking of it as anonymous. those who are proving to be wrong time and time again the core properties of bitcoin on confiscate all assets if held properly and censorship resistant to value transfer hopefully have unlimited tools will come in the near future but we're not there yet we're in march twenty minutes actually five years since these n.s.a. memos where it said we should do our best to track down bitcoin users were written but the guys at the snooping agency haven't really been wasting time it is an international about halfway through the program here on this thursday still to come here on the son of moammar gadhafi says he's going to run for the presidency of

reject. so when you want to be president and. want to be honest. it's a right to be for us this is what before three of them can't be good. interested always in the waters in the. west. oh. yeah. mo oh my gosh us playing today after so many mohit those imax kaiser this is the kaiser report in puerto rico a territory that is currently under occupation by the current. unbelievably we're standing in front of some art that is representational lee depicting this what the
11:48 am
heck is going on stacy this is the point that they lavandera which means that the flag door on july first twenty sixteen it was painted black prior to that it was the classic puerto rican flag blue at top red stripes down now it's black because from then what some dubbed. began to occupy this. territory i was going to say so nation but of course it's not totally a nation is the territory of the united states so i'm july first twenty sixteen they defaulted on a two billion dollars payment on a general obligation bond the first time since one nine hundred thirty three that it happened in the united states or any u.s. territory really set in motion new period in puerto rican history so roughly at about the same time you had a whole new group of entrepreneurs in the crypto space to say well puerto rico could be a great place for us to come and de camp and set up shop and turn this into
11:49 am
a crypto paradise and we're going to be looking at some of those stories while we're here in puerto rico and of course we'll be sampling some awesome most fungo and we're going to get into the culture we're going to do so on a learn how to do some serious salsa dancing by the end of the show something i've been meaning to do for the past thirty years and do the horizontal mambo maybe a couple times who knows what the what's going on there let me just give credit to the artist alvarez she made this in two thousand and twelve and then painted it black in twenty sixteen when the obama admin administrator ssion brought in pro mace which means promise in spanish but in english it stands for puerto rico oversight management and economic stability act. and the sign you mentioned to appoint a who of course was a puerto rican american his parents were from puerto rico he wrote that sawing song oyo. me reith's mo so listen to my rhythm is what that means and so we're going to listen to the rhythm of this island you and i have been to many places and
11:50 am
a similar situation whether it's greece whether it's ireland we've seen economic collapse and troikas and outside bodies oversight fiscal stability boards coming in fiscal control boards and this situation coming in and occupying economically at least and that's really all that matters financial repression you know whether it's in the you. us when they artificially drop interest rates down to below market rates or whether you're in greece where you have the troika as it's known and now here we are forced to recall what the current as it's being called around the world there's always a battle going on with the central bankers and the commercial bankers always trying to repress the population in one way or another recall the global insurrection against banker occupation we've been saying this for years on the show so now we're going to look at it from the puerto rican perspective they are similarly being repressed by the overlords of finance and they are reacting in
11:51 am
a very specific for it to recruit away a lot of salsa a lot of beans and rice lot of dancing lot of sunshine and a lot of crypto baby by the way they are america and that's one thing to remember that i feel so proud to be american this is a great location san juan is gorgeous and yes at colonial city it's hundreds of years old francis who is that guy. ponce de leon. i think i'm something rama ponce there and yes he first of course basically found his old san juan is the first governor here and we're going to be here for the next few episodes we're going to be reporting on the financial situation here remember on june thirtieth two thousand and sixteen when obama first introduced this new legislation pro mesa appointing a fiscal control board over the island they are not allowed basically they don't have their own economic sovereignty here because the president of the united states appoints these people to the control board the fiscal control board when
11:52 am
they went bankrupt at that time their debt was seventy billion dollars. that's about twenty thousand dollars per person on the island since then of course because of the hurricane and because of the economic collapse hundreds of thousands hundreds of thousands have actually left so now there's only about three point three million people on the island this is the bay of synanon were all of the colonials all the colonial powers whether the dutch the spanish or the british arrive through here this is the new world the gateway to the new world it's so gorgeous reminds me of the south of france we should move here but decided to get the move here and now we're going to join the crypt the revolution in san juan puerto rico i feel it watching in my veins. stigmata pouring out of my trip the consciousness right here is a fuse with cyber christ on sunday it is
11:53 am
a sunday and you know we've been walking around this island and that is a thing that is quite surprising to me i thought it was more like the bahamas and a tourist destination and kind of a hellhole of miami like situation but in fact it's an amazingly beautiful five hundred year old it feels like you're in lisbon orville fonts the marriage does feel like a remarkable european city we've been to a lot of beautiful places all over the world and this is going to be one of the most beautiful i've got to tell you. so i was talking about the fight the fiscal control board and the fact that they lost their economic sovereignty it's a situation similar to appen with greece however you can tell the difference max and i have been to athens many times over series and lawn no tear gas but also there's it's let much less depressed here i think because the fiscal control board is filled with americans who basically donald trump is now the guy who would appoint this fiscal control board and he's gone bankrupt more than anybody else on earth let me give you a comparison between greece and ireland you know greece was allowed made an
11:54 am
example of and the economy went up. flames the tear gas was everywhere and their suffering and depression ireland played ball with the i.m.f. and the troika and they were you know got through the austerity measures and now there's a huge financial boom there except you have to pay a lot for basics like water to pay for it also the poor get ripped off of course but here this is more like that ira situation where they're kind of nursing them through fiscally until the crypto boom hits and it's going to hit in the next twenty four months i can feel it i can feel the block chain if it smells like victory. well max you know that twenty sixteen when they defaulted on their two billion dollar bond payment the first time since one thousand thirty three that a state a u.s. state or territory had done so defaulting on a general obligation by which you're not supposed to be able to do well they did it
11:55 am
they were seventy billion in debt then by twenty seventeen they were one hundred twenty three billion in debt and then nobody really talks about it anymore because you know why hurricane maria hit and hurricane maria was a category four hurricane loon and. you already saw. her. the only lot of bernstein knew what was going to come in twenty or twenty seventeen well you know old song wants on one don't have that much damage that we can see apparently the rest of the island does we will try to get out there but it did cause ninety according to this headline rebuilding puerto rico will cost ninety five billion dollars and there. you could raise that i see you know in a heartbeat nothing this whole place is going to go krypto street i'm feeling it well just so you know max is talking about that because there are three simultaneous big queen conferences happening on the island we will talk to some of
11:56 am
those people we are over the next few days going to go there and talk to those people there are many stories about the new colonialists some people say they're the new colonialists i did speak to a former government employee he was somebody and he said that he welcomes them all he doesn't see them as connie so we're going to cover that over the next few days and they say oh the ninety five billion and they want the fall thing on there there's more solid to the territory incurred this debt willingly for weaker has always been a toxic debt dump where wall street dumps you know and this is the story when you have a. empire like the u.s. and they picked out all the european countries and latin american countries were to take them puerto rico you know it's completely asymmetric warfare they dump dead here and people say well we'll take the money i mean why would you say no to money and then they come calling for the interest payments and like oh no we got
11:57 am
a default then they say well we're going to come in with austerity measures and take over all your basic services and privatized and then maria hit and said. that's right we're in hurricane alley deal with that wall street well so so max i mean the thing is that what let's talk about why they are so in debt because it is different between ireland between greece between here ireland went bust because of those banks the golden circle of bankers who lent each other money and it was all basically private debt owned by a bank without even any retail deposits and the european union the e.c.b. forced the irish people to basically bail out this private bank in greece yes they did borrow so much money and that was because of the e.c.b. because of the euro zone and everybody lent money to them cheaper than it should have been you know what happened in puerto rico is that they had since one nine hundred seventeen in the jones act they had the chip exam tax bonds so tell us about that because you sold those on wall street what happened there yes i said
11:58 am
it's a toxic debt dump because on wall street you can always sell a puerto rico triple tax free double be rated bond to mr or mrs shorts out on long island for that tax free equivalent you know you say it's taxable equivalent of seven percent on your money dr schwartz dentist in bay city and you know you just sell those all day long it's amazing trade to do and they just load this place up with debt the convenience is debt from convenience and now they don't pay the interest on the debt they shouldn't pay the interest on the debt they should force it back to wall street where it came from and so take your toxic debt sludge and cram another strange thing is not going to pay the interest on this thing because you just manufactured it in or the river. this fracturing has nothing to do with our economy go go into more fungo and drop dead well they did eat a lot of mofongo debt they had a lot of debt and that part of that by the way happened. puerto rico's recession
11:59 am
remember everybody else in the world saw it hit in two thousand and eight two thousand and nine actually hit in two thousand and six here and what happened is that was the end of a ten year period set in motion from bill clinton basically every single thing in the world that has gone wrong was because of bill clinton whether it was his commodities futures modernization act which allowed derivatives to be traded not as bets but as actual investments whether he got rid of glass steagall and then caused all the banks to turn into gambling zones as well but he also in one thousand nine hundred six he basically over turned some tax advantages to us corporations to manufacture here and most of them were in the south of the island we'll get into that how that actually impacts the electrical grid here but by two thousand and six all of the tax advantages to being here were lost and all of them literally thousands of people lost their jobs overnight and thus set in motion the death spiral well of the death spiral is being reversed thanks to innovation
12:00 pm
entrepreneurial pierce and the blocks we're going to have a reverse of the death spiral toward the reinforcing stairway to heaven and at the top of the heaven is a man named toshi not come otoh and we get there through the block chain one block at a time every ten minutes a new block is born like a star in the universe in the multiverse and it just says hello i'm here and i love you. they're bred for a single purpose. they have a souped up. they start training very young. eight months of intensive schooling.
