8:00 pm
and cuba because of my love for the cuban people i wanted to observe this first hand but i didn't want to observe it from the back of the pack and so i had. asked the cuban government to allow me to come inside as they were making their deliberations as they were passing the power in to observe this basically like a fly. on the shoulder and. they didn't answer me i had the choice to be in cuba or be here in moscow for some very important thing this past week and i chose to come here to moscow instead of going to cuba well we are very happy it's you're welcome here in this country but for the time being we have to take a very short break we'll be back in just a few moments. i've

8:02 pm
corner never know what's in the pub even to walk into a nice that excitement is that more now and that's why the adrenaline in much comes from. i'm going to use a move by definition an extreme so will probably support. the violence is a pov and it's almost a schizophrenia gang culture where you can do all these things and behave badly. they're going to befall a whole disqualified all. of us both more so focused on the last. punishment and infirm then one wall will get done far less than the spots. i would roll or where enough i figure out i really did a poll down down went up a little bit. of meaning in these images that beast if you don't let me involves this constant involvement.
8:03 pm
in july twenty second team hunted. a freelance journalist working with. militant shelling in syria. john of his sacrifice which he has established a holiday such as memorial day will recognize war reporters who often risk their lives for the sake of the truth and through that peace you can submit your published works in a video form written form to a. don't call into. welcome back to worlds apart jon alpert the american journalist and documentary filmmaker mr. just before the break you were saying that you had a choice of either going to cuba or coming to moscow and each owes most and i know
8:04 pm
that your house something under the table to show as i do have something i have my my my props here and you see this yeah and i can see the name of legendary russian hockey player who just lost fifty safad why do you have it if you look at this and obviously we have your name here as well but so so so when i was growing up. i didn't want to be a journalist i can tell you how i became a journalist but it was completely accidental my dream was to be a hockey player. but my reality was that i still don't get i wasn't good enough. i was always very enthusiastic but in one town that hockey player but my friend i'm working with on a number of projects one is the first and last hockey game ever on the north pole can you skate really and you've got a year because next year around this time is basically to call attention to the environmental crisis of the north pole and also this sort of political tensions the
8:05 pm
arctic countries the vatican. there's one more can remember what it is they're all getting together. i usually do political journalism and i think. right off the bat i can say that this is unfair and usually experience to have russians and americans doing anything constructive because from my experience the only bickering but it's good that you guys can do something in the in the current environment and i think so and you've been to war and. i feel. because of our shared experience and because i'm looking in your eyes i can tell that. when when you go to war as a reporter there is something that happens inside you and it changes you as a person and it compels you more or less for the rest of your life to look for other ways to resolve issues you visited a number of floors zones but did the one that you remember the most would be
8:06 pm
a your coverage of the first gulf war for which you were actually fired from and b. c. . it was clearly and correct me if i'm wrong you were specifically fired because you sell and it's a billion deaths all inflicted by the americans that was clearly an act of censorship but i think from my experience at least censorship in different come countries. realize in different patterns have you figured out how it works in the united states. you know it's affected me in different ways i've had the misfortune of being blacklisted twice i was blacklisted for public television not for war coverage but for a documentary about health care because the documentary pointed the finger at the sort of greedy financial interests that were keeping americans from getting the best health care. that was it for public television. but the sort of
8:07 pm
interesting thing about the united states is that sometimes the door opens and door closes and the door open to n.b.c. and i was the only independent reporter to work for any of the coral networks i had total editorial control of my reports which is i have more editorial control than anybody here at r.t. has i think there were a number of circumstances general electric which is. a big powerful country company a company that has a lot of military industrial interests bought and b.c. and from that moment. the gangplank was out for me but i think that i may i may be mistaken but judging from your previous interviews i think it was more specific you went to iraq you filmed the shooters that were you were not supposed to sell me you managed to smuggle it into a back into the united states in your socks you brought it to the n.b.c. executives and what did they tell you. that every time i go to the third world i
8:08 pm
make trouble for them and they're tired of it but if you actually look at the sluggish what was the problem with your behavior over the actual material that they have here and in fact. the regular news staff was devastated by this and they had all supported me they had seen the footage and were proud that somebody from their team had gotten this despite saddam's attempts to censor me you know we had three babysitters there were three pages of rules and regulations we broke every single rule they tried to kill me on the way out of the country put a gun to my head and spent five minutes trying to pull the trigger to kill me and i got the stuff back and everybody was proud of me and what was there what was on the there was on the film i mean basically the smart bombs were not smart this was what we were being told in the united states during the war that this was the first bloodless war in history the first scientific war in history. and let me tell you
8:09 pm
when any country believes that they can make war and not hurt people they become even more dangerous and so it was crucial to show these reports to the american did you actually show it to the american people when they should have seen it during the war one of the tragedies of the war and it's it's studied in journalism classes there were a number of hand wringing retrospectives about the way in which the press had not fulfilled its duty to the country during the war and they didn't well you know what's interesting to me is that americans like to use the examples of the first and second iraqi contains as something that they regret but i think. any of those things have been repeated recently for example the united states military has just taken over the city of. isis used to claim as its capital it was taken by a very very have the aerial bombardment. practically no building is left standing in that city there independent reports of thousands of corpses rotting
8:10 pm
under the rubble and there is still very very little if any coverage on the american networks doesn't that suggest that the system that you encountered baghdad is still in operation these days i can't talk about that because i haven't been to syria i can't talk about those reports because. i don't watch the news. when i spend my whole day doing what i'm doing i'm i don't know about you i want to watch a hockey game on t.v. i don't think i've watched. cast in twenty years. but i didn't even watch my own reports because as soon as i finish with my own reports i was on an airplane going to the next war so i can't comment about that i thought that the way in which the press was treated during the second gulf war because i was embedded for two months in baghdad was respectful was honest and was transparent and it was the three hundred sixty degree difference from the first gulf war first gulf war. the press
8:11 pm
was treated like a bunch of dogs in the alley you've been to numerous war zones but you decided against going to syria or for that matter to libya why is that why didn't you want to go there. make a calculus. before i decide to go someplace i would like. i'm happy to take a risk happy to risk can say i'm happy but i will risk my life if i think that the report that i make is going to change something. and that's a sort of sophisticated combinations of things want to have to be able to get to where i want to go i have to be able to operate with some degree of freedom people's minds have to be flexible enough so that if i come back and i say listen this is what i think the truth really is that the listen to me and i need an outlet and i don't have any of those conditions. when i stop working for n.b.c. i began to do documentaries and sort of let's get on the plane the bells ringing
8:12 pm
over in syria i'm going to be the first person in the front the first person back in those days i could beat anyone in the world sure you're good but i could beat you but documentaries is different and documentaries is a long slow or thoughtful process and and there are only so many places that you can show them and we basically make one documentary every two years every three years in the case of cuba to be forty five years the conditions and i felt bad you know because in order to take this risk you have to believe that there's something about the way in which you see the world that is important for other people to know otherwise it's insanity to go to these places and you have to have that burning. burn burn inside you so the first couple of times wars happened without me. like you had to tie me to the mast because but i didn't have any place to show it you know you weren't there but they were. a lot of coverage of both the syrian and
8:13 pm
libyan conflict and it was. very much split along the ideological lines because i could see the reports of my western calling for example from libya voice with their own this aims are in the same building working you know from the same desk but they would show something totally totally different i mean the reality that i wouldn't even recognize and i'm sure they would say the same things about my reports we are now in the age of propaganda war a supposed truth post-fact do you think you could even adapt to this kind of working environment i did pretty pretty good in egypt so i was in the square in egypt for the revolution. i think. it's pretty good film it played on h.b.o. we didn't win the oscar but we got on the shortlist for the oscar awards and so made a film from i don't know if you appreciate. like my type of way of doing things it
8:14 pm
was a quintessential film the way in which we do it very well received so. the opportunity still do exist and you know it's also our responsibilities as reporters to. try and be as honest as possible to not have an agenda. when there's lots of forces pulling us this way and points i want to see it's not about having an agenda i think from what i see at least i think many western reporters they come to cuba or they come to syria with the preconceived notion of what that country is and they do their reports from the balconies of the hotel we call a balcony buzzards a little whatever i mean. things to do more things to do this they did this and. the first report i ever did for n.b.c. . was the first time i'd ever been in
8:15 pm
a war zone and i was up in lang's on vietnam and the chinese were on the hills shooting at anything that moved and i like a moron i'm walking down the street there with my vietnamese buddies in the church church so you know what i did. everybody else runs for cover i grab the microphone and i do with stand up because that's all it ever. existed and so i said i'm telling them what was obvious i'm here i'm lying son that people are shooting at me and my name is jon alpert and i'm working for n.b.c. news i looked at that and i said you know what that's the last stand up on there but i never i never did another one i was so ashamed of myself because all i was doing was copycatting you know they all wear the same clothes they wear the trench coats in the winter they wear the safari suits and they walk around with briefcases and going to and what the heck is in their briefcases you know what it is speak up and they spend the whole day waiting for the sun to get into the right position they've got somebody standing there with a tray to reflect and they're there on the balcony well i think so shame on them
8:16 pm
and here awards to people who go do something different and it's and it's not just the american reporters seen the russian reporters i've seen people like this all over the world and there are reporters from every single country who will get dirty and will try to understand what the people are doing well. definitely on that i just. a minute left and i want to ask you perhaps a philosophical question but still i think much of the global tensions still centered around those concepts of freedom democracy tyranny development human flourishing and what always strikes me is how differently they are interpreted in different countries what freedom means to an american is very different from what freedom means to a cuban or to a syrian or even to russians for that matter do you think difference is a genuine do you think we will average be able to drive. you know some common understanding of what freedom really. i think it's always good to have
8:17 pm
differences. but we can't let those differences separate us and what we need to do is. even even though we might look at the wall. differently we need to. walk through the world holding hands and talk to each other about our differences like we're doing here today will be a big you know mindful of being branded as a crime and sympathizer because i think in this day and age even appearing on this network may get you in trouble anybody who knows me knows that i've always been my own person and people have respected me for them that's why they invite me to come back time and time again and that's why this project about the first and last hockey game at the north pole which is been forced by the united nations that's the other well i certainly would together and i'll teach you how to skate you want how to stay well but i'll teach you a well i will definitely try my best but in any case i hold that we can discuss
8:18 pm
your next project let's say in a year's time in this very studious thank you for being here today i invite our viewers to keep this conversation going on our social media pages as for me hope to see you again same place same time here on worlds apart. they claim is a black hole and it is sucking folks from all walks of life and money from all points on the globe and as it expands it just the wharfs the size of anything else trying to keep with it that includes various money regimes it also includes various

8:20 pm
beyond the team's latest edition to make it up as we go so i need to look at. the development from the hague on the alleged chemical attack in syria's duma with russia inviting local witnesses to testify that the incident was staged. can never have zero hour in the basement and then heard someone outside screaming go to the hospital we were scared they started to pour water on me i don't know why they did this live on the phone as professionals. we saw that there were no symptoms suggesting chemical weapons had been used. precious mounting on the qatari regime for its regional rivals now the claims of dubai based company commissioned a film linking the beleaguered gulf state to terrorism in order to justify sanctions. and not even a dollar facebook's technology chief stresses to british employees that moscow's
8:21 pm
spending on securing the brakes it totalled all of ninety seven cents. hi good evening this is r.t.d. to ten with me kevin owen live from moscow first and no symptoms of chemical poisoning that's how local doctors are describing the aftermath of the attack in the syrian city of duma on april the seventh witnesses explained how it all unfolded to the un about chemical watchdog alongside russia's representative to the group went on for about an hour or so our europe correspondent peter oliver joins us now there's a lot of information a lot of people put forward peter take us through the main points that came out there's one clear message that seemed to come from everyone wasn't. well russia's main representative russia's permanent representative to the organization for the
8:22 pm
prevention of chemical weapons alexander surely again he was unequivocal in what he had to say he described the incident that took place in duma on the seventh of april as a solo police staged chemical attack saying that the blame lay with the likes of the united states france and the united kingdom for actually carrying out the staging of that now he was also backed up in the statements by the syrian representatives that we o.p.c. w and was then later followed by a series of different witnesses who were on the scene in due. time no one of those and perhaps the most profound of those was eleven year old son he was one of those people that was prominently featured in in videos of the alleged chemical attack he described a very different scene. in that. we were in the
8:23 pm
basement and then heard someone outside scream go to hospital we were scared they started to pour water on me i don't know why they did this. do you remember where it happened. right here. and there is it. here it is. and then they poured water on me they put me here and then took me upstairs to my mother. and that's me in the video that's me. yes.
8:24 pm
it was a long press conference it was a very detailed press conference they they also brought up to the stage a number of doctors who'd been on duty in the hospital at the time they went into at times excruciating detail about what they saw and what they didn't see on that day on the seventh of april in fact some doctors saying that although they treated people for us fix the ation for problems with breathing they didn't treat people with the symptoms that you would associate with a chemical poisoning. on the seventh of april i was in the emergency room treating patients injured during the fighting the same day around seven pm we started receiving patients with breathing problems about fifteen cases this happened because people were inhaling smoke and dust they only showed symptoms of choking and nothing more it all happened because one missile hit a building nearby and a lot of dust got into the hospital rooms people had injuries they had trouble
8:25 pm
breathing but we had patients like that arriving all the time and the screams chemical weapons chemical weapons were used to create panic this lasted for about an hour we were treating the patients and sending them home and we had no. instances of people suffering from poisonous substances. well that's what we heard from those doctors that were on the scene we also heard from. who is a member of the the russian military attash a who was who is looking at this need described the canister that is patrolled in the in the videos that are supposed to say show this chemical attack he said that's just not the way that. chemical ordinance looks after it's been to live it so certainly far more questions are being raised following this press conference than have been answered. yes. thanks for your a take on what you saw there so when it went on for a fair
8:26 pm
a while didn't get enough of you know i'm a work of middle east expert. looking on from london peter gave us the facts of course a lot of people are going to looking on and seeing what was what happened earlier and say no these people were coerced no they were told what to say no they were planted there by russia there are going to be skeptics that will think that what do you make of this testimony that guy appears to be painful as it was to watch one of the victims of what allegedly went on there we saw doctors coming out saying they were doctors they were there were chemical experts you can't say that everyone is making this up can you or can you i don't know what do you think. well first of all they're not neither in damascus nor moscow are there they are held in the netherlands once they arrive at sheeple airport they can good the nearest policeman and say could i please have an asylum but they didn't do that they got there they went to the hague they went to the o.p.c. w. commission on the provided evidence and you know this is on freckled and you know
8:27 pm
once again once they arrive had they been coerced they could have easily asked for asylum in the netherlands you know we would have been looking at a completely different case but i was looking at these you know as i was looking into the following some of the arguments they presented and some of the evidence they shewed and so on i was thinking you know how come we didn't hear any similar witnesses in country who last year probably had the area of who not been occupied by journals of mistral would have seen very similar you know people alleged victims or doctors who allegedly. treated some chemicals some people from chemical poisoning saying no no no that was completely not the case and so on and so forth and so the key here actually what happened is that out of luck really this particular area where the really alleged chemical attack took place was not the next day you know delivered to the hands of the whole freed from the terrorists and
8:28 pm
delivered to the hands of the syrian government that's why we have these people preserved to tell us exactly what happened because you're good to go on now because said no the timing of this is well the o.p.c. w. didn't want russia to do what it did today to put these witnesses forward it said no you can do this when we've carried our investigations there's no reason to believe that the. c.w. is a good organization why would it want all the evidence before it came out with its conclusions are you what it was doing what russia had to put forward what was its problem with these people say what they said today don't get it. well we think that the first starter ring happened in damascus because we understand that the o.p.c. w. team in damascus refused to meet those people and then the idea came out of what did with just take into the hague and show them but still you know the likes of the united kingdom for example said we're not going to attend any theater here and so on they refused to see this as evidence obviously pending what the o.p.c. w.t.
8:29 pm
is going to come up with from duma yet it's highly unlikely that they would say personally even if. they will were actually there at the scene as they purport to be medics and indeed victims but we've seen the kid in the video haven't we so you know that he's definitely been there and his father was that his father could have taken his kid out with the militants because the militants came out afterwards with their families but no he remained in his place and he said this is what happened which reminds us for example with the very famous case of armando nish the guy at the back of the car in the back of the ambulance stunned by something picture on pages and then he and his father remained in eastern aleppo when he was liberated by the syrian army they refused to go back there if you go out with the militants they refused money and so on and so forth there is a lot more to it than what is said lionel for international really quit on innocent
8:30 pm
till proven guilty hopefully going to raise some questions by the testimony we heard today would you think it's theater or not some people there i guess will be maybe changing their minds here tonight does it back a question over how quickly the u.k. france and the u.s. went in there without any of this being said come again the questions are here to give the u.s. france were quick to go in there bombing over doomer before any of these witnesses came forward if people were on the fence tonight would it maybe change their minds about what they heard today. here will these three actors were quick to do what they did to bomb the place because they knew they didn't have a solid case they wanted to bomb without with disregard to whatever was happening over there so it shows actually that they knew that there was no chemical attack but they were willing to do whatever it takes you assert their authority or so they think and say we are still on the table and a work of middle east expert thanks for your view from london there thank you very much chuck has more news tonight next it's been revealed that
8:31 pm
a dubai based company hired a top level p.r. executive to produce a film linking qatar with terrorism report from the bureau of investigative journalism also claims propaganda material was created for the pentagon breaking it all down our senior correspondent war against you there's no propaganda quite like military propaganda psychological operations that these psyops serious stuff aside from mere unlimited money you also don't have to deal with all those annoying ethical restrictions i just assumed it was news gathering. balancing the process and work in the process so then realize this is a big project so we would do the news items that would go out on the news and around various channels locally and we were to make it as best we could look as if it was made locally belt part to injure specialized didn't military grade
8:32 pm
propaganda the british p.r. firm was active in iraq for years to the u.s. commander there they did crazy stuff faked local news reports smeared iran put together. propaganda videos planted them in people's homes and tracked who viewed them i was asked by my boss. we need to make this style of video. and we've got to use it is footage and all their propaganda to it and we're going to track of our google analytics good times last year bellport injure lost its license after it emerged that it likely stooped racial tensions in south africa as part of its work their thing with having morals is once you lose them it's difficult to pick them up again but i digress guess what belled porton just former boss is up to the biggest
8:33 pm
diplomatic crisis in the middle east since the first gulf war a growing diplomatic crisis that qatar seems to be in crisis as more middle eastern countries sever diplomatic ties with saudi arabia bahrain egypt and the u.a.e. have all cut diplomatic ties with cut up you know the whole cat saudi arabia schism where the two u.s. allies almost came to blows here that was helped by charles and dreher the man who oversaw bellport injures operations in iraq propagandist extraordinary financial and logistical support for terrorists and terrorism groups like hamas the taliban and al qaida who operate freely out of doha and use business and financial institutions to support radical islam and global jihad. mr ron dreher was paid handsomely by
8:34 pm
a dubai based company to smear cata tire to terrorists to iran to tell everyone how bad. it is using the iraqi formula anywhere where some radical islamism is operationally. significant operation going to be fine for a couple these documentary it really isn't became available on netflix you tube it was shown to trump's former chief strategist steve bannon former cia director david petraeus ex defense secretary leon panetta just to make it clear foreign money gulf arab money used to make a fake propaganda film by professionals and then shown to millions shown to some of america's most influential figures to promote international conflict on fake
8:35 pm
grounds this is psyops the big time league of propaganda so far andrea and associates was produced the film as well as the dubai based company lapis communications to get back to our requests for comment on the matter soon as they do if they do we'll let you know now the film was released last summer when gulf states cut diplomatic trade and transport ties with carter accusing it of supporting terrorism so windows repeatedly denied back then the u.s. president sided with arab nations saying that carter had a history of funding terror at a very high level saudi arabia took the lead in the isolation campaign indeed the kingdom's foreign minister is now warning the qatari government that it could collapse if it doesn't support washington's military operations in the middle east . kids are should finance the u.s. military presence in syria and send its own military forces there before the u.s. president lifts american protection for qatar if the u.s. is to withdraw its protection represented by its military base in qatar then the
8:36 pm
regime there will fall within less than a week the saudi foreign minister was referring to the presence of over eleven thousand u.s. troops in qatar he made the remarks after donald trump called for money and ground support in syria from his wealthy allies in the middle east over security analyst and former british army officer charles shoebridge believes it is the saudis who should be concerned over their friendship right now with washington. is using this issue as a stick to beat qatar and of course qatar has used its considerable wealth to also attack for example a propaganda term saudi arabia both countries have been uncomfortable allies for some time certainly they've both been backing the syrian rebellion of course in this particular instance saudi arabia knows that qatar is not in a position to physically provide troops on the ground simply because it's armed forces as a small but of course they would like to see qatar finances further trained it's interesting donald trump's remarks and self has said that without us in other words
8:37 pm
without the americans those countries would fall within hours or weeks or something like this instead this is a truce that is very rarely spoken publicly and they want to don't deflect attention onto one another. facebook sort of a grilling from lawmakers this time in the u.k. the social media giants been taken to task by employees over the platforms handling of people's private data when questioned over russian online activity around the time of the break vote. has got the details. russian brock's it could have been potentially a hot topic here in westminster this thursday however that did not go quite well as a grilling of a top facebook executive didn't seem to go and produce too much we did look at it several times to understand connections between. russia and the brits a referendum that you meant in two thousand and sixteen we found one dollar of
8:38 pm
spend so this is the extent of what we found which is you know almost nothing given to the ways of the people in that if we had it happen to look good if it did have it it was done in a different way that says you know i can't prove a negative that was facebook's chief technology officer who to add insult to injury was sent by mark zuckerberg to answer any questions depart despite repeated pleas to have the facebook c.e.o. appear before this committee himself and we have to be clear that this is far from the first time one attempts to connect the dots between russia's use of social media and bracks it have failed just previously we know that facebook said that they have found that russia had spent less than a dollar on any ads related to bracks and even when this committee travelled all the way to washington to get more answers that did not produce very much we looked at all advertisements with any connection to russia and we found no evidence of our services being used to interfere in the referendum
8:39 pm
a very small number of suspects its research agency linked accounts forty nine such accounts were active during the campaign which represents less than point north of the total number of accounts that these are very low level things until we complete this investigation we won't know but what we haven't had this. information that's enabled those to target on a particular page or a particular phenomenon. the gold club in the u.s. state of pennsylvania has apologized to. five black women for calling the police on them why while they're kicked off the grounds after the koa of a club in his father complained that the women were playing too slowly it's the latest in a series of incidents where african-americans have been arrested or asked to leave a public facility in the u.s. . why. then it was worse on sunday a black woman arrested the waffle house in alabama for refusing to pay for plastic
8:40 pm
utensils the video of her arrest shows officers when she self wrestling to the floor right there was another case as well out of starbucks in philadelphia they called the police on two black men because they did not placed an order and wanted to use the restroom maybe they wanted to place an order afterwards he would know that spoke to waive avanti racism protest. john ok. let. me be ok in response the c.e.o. of starbucks sold all restaurants to close for mandatory anti-racism training following a nationwide campaign against the coffee chain to go reaction from economists to one side they perkins and on the other human rights activist randy sure enough. racism against the two sions is real and that for prejudices real that's that we need to care about america as well as an entire society and look after everyone
8:41 pm
if we don't do this we're going to have worse problems i have enormous difficulty accepting the idea that this young lady trying to run her starbucks in philadelphia spends time thinking about class and segregation and trying to target black people can't she's trying to run the restaurants and she's trying to do. order and keep the business working and not let people take advantage over you guys loitering and not purchasing products from the store while using their facilities how do you stop that from happening again but i don't think that's a little girl running the starbucks as best she can and reluctantly calling the police to sign saying saying loitering again she's thinking about using loitering laws against black people yes there are people that have a literate and businesses. yes there folks out of water some of them of black but i've worked with a lot of white drunks in my day and they don't get handled quite the same way this
8:42 pm
is a fact i'm a glass door lanolin playing another slowly than me and then five women together play very slowly and the entire culture is waiting for the facts as nothing to do it's the fact that they are so low as a long ass people pretend that injustice and mistreatment of people is ok as long as it does not impact yeah that is the problem with the majority it they lack an understanding that it can be us today and it could be them tomorrow now this is where i ask myself the question at what point do you treat black people like ordinary people and subject them to ordinary rules of society at what point do you stop taking every incident as racism and start evaluating them as human beings and how they're reacting that's my question to you next news revelation or is it america broadcast to n.b.c. is joining the dots and discover that these online series you had the right online series in case you missed it is in fact linked to. expose
8:43 pm
a journalist said that they look to the registration data of the show's web site and they cross check today against the distribution for. we could decide to have trouble just going to a website called click talk shows there is bold as brass that are found at the well anyway in response to n.b.c. scoop the couldn't resist it in case you missed it took view is behind the scenes to blow the lid off its connection to. so here we are very slick offices although there is a slight smell in the. vodka and caviar. we're in so it was probably a spy i keep an eye on it. but first glance it looks like any other office but take a look below the surface and something starts to seem off we spoke to i see why in my eyes members of staff so tell me what's it like working for someone connected to
8:44 pm
r.t. well i always loved the topless game show tutti frutti when i was at school there here you could you get a skull right but that was that was on the sky channel r.t.l. this is this is r.t. this is this is funded by russia we're talking about well what do you mean r.t. is funded by russia for the russians well. yeah i mean if your parents is mainly just had new stuff over to poly and things like that to be honest i've never really had so much freedom at work no one tells you how to answer for over and i'm just really happy but do you work alone i mean i do not you know really something i like to talk about. sure i have total freedom to study looked at who was what was it talks to move to for a shop and sort of. from toss to look for fuel. or limited supply. on a good collection of approval from. and
8:45 pm
i've just heard that the host of the show polly boy goes just arrived at work so let's see if we can get a word with her boy go. back a high you're aware that i see why my is funded by the russian state through us he wants us. all. yeah that way yeah yeah i got the email yeah. i've got to take this inside. so there we have it i see links to r.t. you'd have to be pretty special to think it was a secret. cosa show online the controversy brewing over the imminent release of an american prisoner who spent more than four decades behind bars for the murder of three policeman herman bell is set to walk free on friday but new york's police unions were making
8:46 pm
a desperate last ditch attempt to keep him locked up caleb open report. herman bell the tourist for being a cop killer and a member of the black liberation army will soon become a free man after spending nearly fifty years behind bars for shooting policeman dead now the new york parole board's decision even had the support of a son of one of the slain officers it seems that individuals with no knowledge of ms to bellow the circumstances that led me to support his release many years ago have taken it upon themselves to drum up hate and then gins the parole board of new york might have shown sympathy and a willingness to forgive but not the policeman's union the patrolmen's benevolent association they're guilty then and they guilty now and no copula should ever walk the face of the year now siding with the police's n.y.c. mayor bill de blasio who called for the decision to be reversed and for bell to stay behind bars the parole board received over three hundred sixty seven thousand
8:47 pm
letters urging them not to free herman bell despite his record as a model prisoner well not quite there and not actually that many individual messages the associations website gave compliance the option of automatically sending a letter for each of the sixty two cop killers listed on the site that meant that fewer than six thousand objections to bell's release generated over three hundred sixty seven thousand messages completely distorting the level of the outcry in fact according to one poll eighty six percent of new yorkers support the parole board's decision we decided to talk with some former cops about the associations ethics i can't comprehend a man who openly admitted to killing three cops. i can't comprehend how that person would be allowed to walk the streets i could picture every cop out there being absolutely outraged the point of acting on their motion especially in today's climate where there should be used to do your government is trying their back on
8:48 pm
the police officers i can absolutely picture not one. they're not wanting six hundred thousand plus letters being sent to the pro board to eb requesting this man's parole be denied it's manipulation that's quite a you know i mean. it's very tragic and they actually took three people to put parole is what it is you know we have murders rape is awesome this people to get paroled every single day and hell bent on if you kill a cop they want you just right and jail is supposed to be formed people now cops like to talk about the perilous situations they put themselves in and the public that they serve in order to do that but this incident will leave some in new york questioning their integrity. r.t. new york. i'm kevin know it for me in the mirror mosco thanks so much for watching late this russell was a. hero programs and you'll post will continue right after this break.
8:49 pm
so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy to foundation let it be an arms race is on offense very dramatic development the only really i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down and talk.
8:50 pm
america has or this is the kaiser report i meant to rob it's the winter time slow spring that could only stanley cup action baby that's why i'm here. plus some other stuff just a safety thanks for the block chain economic event it's being put on by sonny ray we've interviewed him on kaiser report he's the c.e.o. of dot com this is actually back to sort of style break when conferences we have some amazing people at us have and people like adam back people like chris people like who is going to be on the kaiser report while we're here but you know what while we've been here as well. opening her mouth and adopting our way christine let's. say this i.m.f. boss christine legarde praises cryptocurrency and suggests it could transform the way people see and invest i would posit that it has already see you know transform
8:51 pm
the way people save and invest it's already done that she's saying it could do that the coin is a black hole and it is sucking in folks from all walks of life and money from all points on the globe and as it expands it just the wharfs the size of anything else trying to compete with it that includes various money regimes it also includes very high level bankers and economists so chrystia guard is just the latest to get them to the bitcoin black hole and she'll be utterly transformed she'll be talking about the white paper soon everything she thought she knew about economics is over rule everything she thought she knew about the way the world works is now no longer viable she is now an apostle of satoshi welcome christine legarde bugan due to. be. you knew because of fun to do you knew so. low
8:52 pm
i also want to point out somebody else we've mocked many times over the years who also has come around because we didn't give him a lot of attention when he had the large short position in silver in the world we did give him a lot of attention when he basically received a backdoor bailout through the financial crisis we did give him a lot of attention when he called big point a fraud but i do want to remind people from january ninth two thousand and eighteen just a few weeks after jamie dimon had called big point of pride here's a headline that we didn't cover because we were covering the genesis block during that week and that is jamie dimon says he regrets calling bakery a fraud and believes in the technology behind it in september diamond called bitcoin a fraud i regret making that comment he said tuesday on fox business the block chain is real he added in the interview you can have crypto dollars in yan and stuff like that i see oh yes you've got to look at everyone individually the big question was always to me what the governments are going to feel about bitcoin when
8:53 pm
it gets really big and i just have a different opinion and other people say rumor he is a guy who's a statist where he has to be right because you can't be a free market guy and be the head of the largest bank in the world and the largest derivatives book importantly in the world because if that derivatives book blows up as it threatened to do back in two thousand and eight you need big daddy government big mama janet yellen big mama christine lagarde you need these people to bail you out next year jamie diamond will be burning man you'll see a stark naked with honey slab all over his body rolling around on a mound of fire ants with fierce rock i'll be there taping it for the show he'll be our reporter on the ground will be on the plane make it jamie diamond talking about the toshiba aka moto at burning man in twenty eighteen and that's a current. effect that coin has on the mind is the jamie diamond is not as dumb man
8:54 pm
is not a stupid then he doesn't have a functioning brain cells what happens is the block chain starts to reorient those brain cells like gravity effect on a star or a planet or this table or this earth it just changes the way the architect of your mind works especially if you're in the financial industry to begin to understand that you now are apostle of social not comodo so i want to talk about like he had mentioned. that governments would respond if the individuals had too much sovereignty that they're going to smash you they're going to throw you into a gulag they are going to destroy you they will not let you become more powerful than my bank you collectively more powerful than my bank so there is another story related to that that shows that well in fact. bitcoin is censorship resistant you can try all you want to restrict us to put it down but the whole community is global it's decentralized it's peer to peer and it's the smartest
8:55 pm
people in the world now china of course everybody knows is a giant behemoth state they have a lot of control over their citizenry they have a lot of capital controls they have a lot of the great firewall of china and we know that they've cracked down on decline chinese entrepreneurs have some creative responses to the government's crackdown on crypto crypto is far from dead and china is starting to eke back into existence they did a lot of exchanges did leave the country but in it's place are erupting in china unique to china decentralized exchanges we have them here emerging in the united states and canada as well as regulators crackdown in exchanges china september crackdown also included a ban on i c e o o's the crowdfunding schemes based on crypto tokens in china as elsewhere these had acquired a shady reputation companies looking to raise funds quickly were selling digital
8:56 pm
tokens or coins that were supposed to buy access to some product or service in the future but they often had no way to fulfill these promises a chinese term emerged or air token but we predicted that twenty be the air that the nation state is challenged by. and that's exactly what's happening in china it is censorship resistant it is resilient people want to trade people will find a way out of the vietnamese beat america in that war because they were resilient you could bomb all day long but they found a way they found a way to keep going and they eventually beat an empire out of the us beat the british empire we found a way in the end to help us in the cause that we asked a french. law and we beat the empire now we've got a new empire. out there called the nation state and the central banking system that runs on fear money nonsense and big coin will defeat them and the important thing about the eruption of initial queen offerings that happened last year and this kind
8:57 pm
of petered out now that there are crackdowns on it and apparently innovators and entrepreneurs are finding ways around the regulations but it did show that the likes of jamie dimon had failed there was a demand for the likes of jamie dimon what he considers you know the good guys of the regulators and government that they had cracked down too much there was demand by people to invest in things they wanted her to participate in the financial environment the small young guys with an idea wanted to raise capital and there was it was hard for them to access that capital as they point out here the i.c.a.o. ban suppressed this digital crowdfunding of i.c.a.o. but it didn't address the root of the problem illegal fundraising of all kinds has thrived in china because the formal banking sector still favors large corporations and state owned enterprises smaller firms and entrepreneurs rely on a shadow banking sector to meet their needs for financing it's very similar in the u.s. obviously it's a more advanced financial system than in china in terms of the state owned banks
8:58 pm
but not too dissimilar i mean the small and medium sized enterprises don't have access to capital like the ones like amazon they could borrow money and do borrow money to share but buybacks and things like write well there is a political edge to it because in china as entrepreneurs find ways to do enron around the regulatory system and to swap an exchange and do all kinds of crypto related businesses the message will not go unnoticed by anyone looking to pursue free speech in china so no matter how they try to clamp down on free speech there will they'll find a way to get the free speech out there just like they're finding a way right now to get crypto out there so crypto is leading the way both and finance and in political activism gearing up to an. environment where no state can control speech it's censorship resistant in many many ways including that it's being used the power of block change
8:59 pm
technology and bitcoin that birth it is that even states are able to see that you know when one state like the u.s. controls the global financial system and you cannot access the rails of that financial system without jamie dimon or u.s. regulators saying you can access these rails then you're cut off from the grid and you know your nation can starve but if there is a decentralized peer to peer anonymous network that is neutral and it functions simply as the rails of a free market system better treats all participants in the market is equal then. you know it's not you can't censor it there's no way to stop transactions from people to get it coming together agreeing to a price for a product and exchanging ideas or products right so the forces that created the
9:00 pm
birth of the universe the black hole the forces that create the birth of life itself the day to procreate the forces that guide us as living beings on the multiverse i'm not going to be stopped by any state recording releases power that is beyond even atomic power this is cosmic power it can't be stopped atomic swaps are coming atomic swaps are coming you know you can't you can't stop this with any force. and all nation states got together and tried to stop because they would fail and that's very liberating i pointed out that decentralized exchanges are emerging all over the world they're updating from you know the plasm of this new ecosystem and. and there's evolution of ideas and the more people governments or regulators try to stop it the more anti fragile it becomes the more robust every time it keeps on coming back
9:01 pm
stronger and stronger but the article actually suggests that china the chinese government doesn't actually so much mind all this stuff happening they were worried about the destabilization in the financial system which they control because so many chinese investors were pouring into ice ceo's and there were a lot of scams around so the article points out that these activities of allowing air drops and decentralized exchanges may appear to go directly against the chinese government's orders but in a sense they may be what chinese officials wanted to see in their september edict the authorities talked about avoiding market chaos strengthening the education of investors and collectively safeguarding the normal financial order by china doesn't have a fundamental aversion to digital currencies in fact the central bank is developing its own currency additional currency will bring about a new financial ecosystem said shanklin ben dean of the academy of internet finance university the purpose of the crackdown he said was to curb excessive speculation
9:02 pm
and give the authorities time to upgrade their regulatory capabilities they were digging a hole and they decided to stop doing and declare a victory ok that was on their decision the decision was not the polar pure of trying to figure out they're just reacting to this big cooling black hole is sucking up the entire nation of china and then when the rules china is being sucked into the big black hole if you want to be stocked up in this because black hole stay tuned for the second half and you too will be sucked up into the quite black hole right after these words. yeah played.
9:03 pm
i've been saying the numbers mean something they matter the u.s. has over one trillion dollars in debt more than ten white collar crimes happen huge day. eighty five percent of the global wealth you long for the ultra rich eight point six percent market saw thirty percent rise last year for some with four hundred to five hundred trade per second per second and fifth point rose to twenty thousand dollars. china is building a two point one billion dollar a i industrial heartland but don't let the numbers overwhelm. the only number you need to remember is one the one business show you can't afford to miss the one and only bull by. six points.
9:04 pm
9:05 pm
or welcome back to the kaiser part i'm max kaiser time now to turn to a very special guest i'll preface this by saying cometh the hour cometh the man and i'll explain live in more what i mean by that tel inveighs welcome to the kaiser report thanks max it's great to be on finally are over watching your show throughout two thousand and thirteen and fourteen and even before that i actually got me of typically oh that's awesome. you know i mentioned at the top that cometh the hour come with them and you know i think that going back to twenty seventeen bitcoin actually faced a bit of an existential crisis with this segue it story and you guys over there the world cup the network i'll give them a big shout out you really nurse to the community through
9:06 pm
a difficult period with actually media and great communication and just so little to folks about this is pretty complicated story but if you can kind of encapsulate that what happened it was really a rough time now we look back at it it wasn't a spur of the moment how everything was happening you never really had a chance to step back and think it was all about whether we can or can't have big blocks and while there was a moment where i thought yeah maybe we could go to a bigger bloc and increase the big size of the or the throughput of the month of transactions it was realized fairly quickly that no one has the power to force everybody in the community to upgrade their big coin nodes to have double the size of the blocks to go to two megabytes or beyond and the only solution was to find a way to scale without doing the surrogate and witness was a great coding upgrade that didn't force everyone to update it stayed within the
9:07 pm
consensus rules and it was the only way to go the user activate itself or it was a little bit reckless a little bit dangerous i'm glad i got. the bandwagon around june july and by august it was clear that it was going to win and i believe that we did ok there was a bit of an element there town that you know talking about the the elements that were involved in that that it seemed as though we had a big blocks or smaller blocks it seemed like there was a corporate agenda almost that there were some old geezer in the space and corporations and fund managers that were really leaning on the whole big block story to satisfy a commercial and and the protocol did them almost as bad actors in the space i agree with though i wouldn't go as far as it was some kind of an agenda a lot of the businesses have structured their businesses based on certain conditions
9:08 pm
but bitcoin isn't the company bit coin didn't promise anything to anyone and just because some businesses were really dependent on micro chance auctions before the system was able to feasibly do them for you cheaply those businesses were going to be in a little bit of trouble of the how to do more development than they wanted to or just the segway and i think they wanted to take the lazy way out and force every user to upgrade and the user said no the companies need to upgrade with bitcoin this is what they chose and eventually all of those companies had to upgrade their systems to account for it and now we have a lot of transactions processing very very quickly and very cheaply and i think the system is so much better and so much more secure no those asserted themselves this is the miners they did and which is a good thing because when so she initially launched it she did say one c.p.u. one vote but that was under the assumption that everyone is pretty much a minor everyone that wants a node can also mine with
9:09 pm
a six and the advancements in mining that was no longer feasible so how does a regular corner have a voice in the system and they do that by right. and there all no doubt and by validating their own transactions and the miners urges they are to make money by creating new coins by processing our transactions and not dictate the future of development some say that the way to be a typical honor is to run your own do great i agree i run my own noda i have been running a single minor rodeo minor is actually very difficult trying to operate my miner now and running into difficulties but i look i have a lot of respect for those that are able to run mining operations i do but again if this is going to be a decentralized peer to peer value transfer system the average person has to have a say in it somehow and right now they have a say by processing their own transactions with their own note i say your claim to
9:10 pm
fame so to speak you teach people how to look at technical analysis in a big way that's something that you're big in the community for and let me just give it some background here you like myself kind of have a background on wall street and you've done a lot of options trading and so you have a fan of base experience in the securities industry which is different than many people that come into crypto because they kind of come into it really without any experience in securities or wall street whatsoever but so when you talk to people back technical analysis what are you trying to teach them what what what what's your goal they're just trying to teach people trading is difficult and it's a skill set and you don't just come in and do it what i've noticed when i came into the space and twenty thirteen and twenty fourteen is that so many people were now becoming traders because there was such a little barrier to entry and being a trader because of crypto there's no age restriction no jew graphical restriction
9:11 pm
no financial restrictions you can share with one hundred two hundred dollars a lot of gamblers came within a space of schrader's because a lot of gambling sites and poker sites were paying out in crypto in big. coin mostly and these guys say i want to do something else i don't have to play poker all the time i'm going to start trading and what i've noticed is that we're wasn't many professional traders and competent traders in the space so i started writing articles about technical analysis and the grew into a huge shadow about technical analysis and trying to predict the price of big i've had lots of really good calls i've had a few bad calls too i mean just the life of being a trader and now i've just been traveling the country doing little workshops of ten to twenty people that want to spend the whole day learning the basics of technical analysis for trading i can only help any trader well the great value in this is twofold one is traders obviously looking for gains
9:12 pm
but probably more important with technical analysis it's address is risk management risk management is the key to trading success it's something that technical analysis helps because it gives you the ability to pick price points where you might want to put on some a strategy to get you out of a market that's not going in your favor this type of thing would you agree with that absolutely i think doubt a trader should trade as least a spa simple if you want to pick the perfect points where the statistics and probabilities are in your favor and the best advantage to technical analysis it can tell you where you are wrong based on technical analysis and you're entering a trade for a position you should already have a metric saying ok if it goes against me this amount i need to get out of this trade and wait for another opportunity sell saying technical analysis if you have a certain threshold that you are designating as your risk tolerance that applies to
9:13 pm
any security any all call any coin across any market regardless of what the company or the coin is about you have a certain bias toward risk this helps you manage that risk talk about wall street for a second you know future. contracts are introduced in late two thousand and seventeen december twenty seventh seen hasn't had any impact of anything i don't think it had any actual impact on because other than the homo speculation that took place leading into those contracts i felt last year seventy five hundred should have been the top four because when i underestimated the kind of full blown exuberance people will have by the fact that a ball should this coming in the price went all the way to twenty thousand i mean i was trying to predict that each step of the way and the data futures launched people realize that hey it's not that big a deal the volume on the futures while increasing every week is still pretty small they're also cash saddled and because they're cash saddled they shouldn't have much of an effect on the underlying price of fifth corps and it's not like the gold
9:14 pm
futures where the futures themselves are price discovery for gold futures on big coin are more like the s. and p. five hundred futures they don't really have an effect on the underlying stocks of the s. and p. five hundred so i see it as the same way and it wasn't dot big of a deal after they launched and it's great because now because it is definitely more legit to all of the average person that is thinking should i get in should i not get in while clearly the c.m.e. in the financial world considers it legit because of the futures so i think it has a long it's a great go and forward but as far as immediate effect on the price of a quinn i don't think it has hold out much i'm talking about a loss in again a futures contract does give an institutional player ability to manage risk because they can heads a position which means they can take bigger positions and this is unique now to big point because there are no futures contracts on any other all going at the moment so my question is about all the clients i think some people view you as being a big big point maximalist. tend to shun the old coin market in sydney
9:15 pm
talk a little bit about. that that that that that idea i am odd bit of a bit colin maximalist but that's not because. i hate all of the old coins and i think that coin is going to be cave because i have money. i only do that because it is going to be the winner and that's where the money isn't quite as far as the old coins go there was a round of old coins that came in in the early days of twenty fourteen coins like light coins coins like one hour like your own coin max coin these like. banks going when these old coins showed up i didn't have a problem with these coins because they wore honestly created with the genesis block and like everybody knew about it they were launched well it's case of light coin it was all fair game for anyone to get and then the next round of old coins came in as a sole source for the files or to get rich and i immediately classify all of those
9:16 pm
coins as i would write scams because if the father has an advantage or if you mine the coin for a month and then it goes through five steak and then the next round of koans which is what a theory of kicked off was where you actually created from the beginning and pre-sell it to a bunch of people which i thought was an outright security like in the case of a theory and every i.c. over the followed so to me they got three ms and i see you know it isn't i see ok misery for the people started calling it. correct it is a nice yeah right and it is a security hole to me it is wall street better imo lost the better it looks like a duck it smells like a duck and quacks like a dud it's a flick and security so so to me everything just got progressively worse now i will say that even though i don't consider coins like my school in like like one like my narrow scams like i do on the rast i still feel that there is only room for one block chain the way we only have room for one internet so i do think that bitcoin will continue to separate from all of these other old coins even the honestly
9:17 pm
created ones over time the way like amazon continues to separate from any other online retailer right so i would put i.c.l. is into that category of securities offerings i see. think we would agree on that and i'm going to move on to my last question which is that the twenty eighteen twenty nineteen time horizon what about the emerging second layer a bit coy like lightning network so your thoughts i think that the lightning network and all the progress that's happening there is moving in faster than i expected i think they are going to focus on making it very user friendly to the point where it's still complicated to set up your own because a node but it should be as easy as da loading an up to house your own lightning no and using these lightning channels they should bring micro transactions the thing that people were expecting on the protocol itself but a lot of smart engineers basically looked at inside that's not really feasible on how the system scale so i really am looking forward to all those lightning channels
9:18 pm
give us micro transactions and this should give you another layer of privacy i think there could be. a lots of good things that could be done as a second layer of corn to obscure those transactions to finally may pick one fungible and actually anonymous all right tom thanks so much for being on the kaiser report thank you already well that's going to do it for this edition of the kaiser report was made by skies are states are we want to thank tone vanes legend if you want to catch us on twitter it's kaiser report so next time i'll. in july twenty second to you from the elsa to the freedoms journalist working with a. militant and serial. killer who sacrifice teaches us to wish to know
9:19 pm
the answer to the real the people as well reporters who will still risk to do. so you can see truth comes through that. you can submit to your published works and the video will britain for you go to a window on t.v. don't come into no. look at the blockade in the animosity for fifty almost sixty years did it change the regime in cuba no the last administration realized that the majority of cuban americans wanted normalizations the normalised and when you normalize you can talk . and i want to tell you from my experience in cuba when the united states and you sugar instead of a hammer things change in cuba in the way that the united states wanted it.
9:20 pm
tonight the development from the hague on the alleged chemical attack in syria is doing that with russia inviting local witnesses to give their story as they testified that the incident will stay. in another level or in the basement and then heard someone outside scream go to the hospital we were scared they started to pull water on me i don't know why they did this of on them as professionals we saw that there were no symptoms suggesting chemical weapons had been used. coming up to pressure is mounting on the qatari regime from its regional rivals now there are claims that dubai based company commissioned a film linking the beleaguered gold state to terrorism in order to justify sanctions. and even dollar facebook's technology chief stresses to
9:21 pm
british employees but most goes spending on june the brics it vote total of ninety seven said. hi this is art international broadcasting worldwide from r.t. h.q. moscow with me kevin zero eleven pm here now and first no symptoms of chemical poisoning that local doctors are describing the aftermath of the attack in the syrian city of duma on april the seventh witnesses explained how it all unfolded to the un but chemical dog alongside russia's representative to the group is peter all of the reports well russia's main representative russia's permanent representative to the o p c w alexander should begin he was unequivocal in what he had to say he described the incident that took place in doomer on the seventh of april as
9:22 pm
a slot police staged a chemical attack saying that the blame lay with the likes of the united states france and the united kingdom for actually carrying out the staging of that now he was also backed up and then statements by the syrian representative to the o.p.c. w. and was then later followed by a series of different witnesses who were on the scene in. that tank now one of those and perhaps the most profound of those was eleven year old has sunday up he was one of those people that was prominently featured in in videos of the alleged chemical attack. he described a very different scene in that they have a. we were in the basement and then heard someone outside scream go to hospital we were scared they started to pour water on me i don't know why they did this.
9:23 pm
to. me. do you remember where it happened. right here. and there is it. here it is. that they poured water on me they put me here and then took me upstairs to my mother. and that's me in the video that's me. yes it was a long press conference it was a very detailed press conference they they also brought up to the stage a number of doctors who'd been on duty in the hospital at the time they went into
9:24 pm
at times excruciating detail about what they saw and what they didn't see on that day on the seventh of april in fact some doctors saying that although they trained people for us to fix the ation for problems with breathing they didn't treat people with the symptoms that you would associate with a chemical poisoning. on the seventh of april i was in the emergency room treating patients injured during the fighting the same day around seven pm we started receiving patients with breathing problems about fifteen cases this happened because people were nailing smoke and dust they only showed symptoms of choking and nothing more it's all happened because one missile hit a building nearby and a lot of does go into the hospital rooms people had injuries they had trouble breathing but we had patients like that arriving all the time and the screams chemical weapons chemical weapons were used to create panic. this lasted for about
9:25 pm
an hour we were treating the patients and sending them home we had no fatalities or instances of people suffering from poisonous substances so certainly far more questions are being raised following this press conference that have been announced it. seems so we got expert opinion on the reaction coming from western countries to the latest revelations. either either ignored or attempts will be made to go. on the mine it in fact is that attempts are already on the way but i think when ordinary people see the footage has been really. abound very impressed and in fact anybody with half a brain could see that these are credible witnesses they refused to see this as evidence obviously pending what the o.p.c. w. team is going to come up with from duma yet it's highly unlikely that they would say risible that there was
9:26 pm

9:34 pm
media and brags that have failed just previously we know that facebook said that they have found that russia had spent less than a dollar on any ads related to bragg said and even when this committee traveled all the way to washington to get more answers that did not produce very much we looked at all advertisements for any connection to russia and we found no evidence of our services being used to interfere in the referendum a very small number of suspects it's not research agency linked accounts forty nine such accounts were active during the campaign which represents less than point five percent of the total number of accounts these are very low level things until we complete this investigation we won't know what we haven't had this. information that's enabled us to target on a particular page or a particular phenomenon next club or in the u.s.

9:42 pm
ms to bellow the circumstances that led me to support his release many years ago have taken it upon themselves to drum up hate and then gins the parole board of new york might have shown sympathy and a willingness to forgive but not the policeman's union the patrolmen's benevolent association they're guilty then and they guilty now and no copula should ever walk the face of the year now siding with the police's n.y.c. mayor bill de blasio who called for the decision to be reversed and for bell to stay behind bars the parole board received over three hundred sixty seven thousand letters urging them not to free herman bell despite his record as a model prisoner well not quite there and not actually that many individual messages the associations website gave compliance the option of automatically sending a letter for each of the sixty two cop killers listed on the site that meant that fewer than six thousand objections to bell's release generated over three hundred
9:43 pm
sixty seven thousand messages completely distorting the level of the outcry in fact according to one poll eighty six percent of new yorkers support the parole board's decision we decided to talk with some former cops about the associations ethics i can't comprehend a man who openly admitted to killing three cops. i can't comprehend how that person would be allowed to walk the streets i could picture every cop out there being absolutely outraged the point of acting on their motion especially in today's climate where there should be used to do your government is trying their back on the police officers i can absolutely picture not one. they're not wanting six hundred thousand plus letters being sent. to eb requesting this man's parole be denied it's manipulation you know i mean. it's very tragic incident he actually three people were put perot's what it is you know we have murderers rapists
9:44 pm
arsonists people who get paroled every single day and hell bent on if you kill a cop they want to do this right and jail is supposed to be for people now cops like to talk about the perilous situations they put themselves in and the public that they serve in order to do that but this incident will leave some in new york questioning their integrity. r.t. new york. new internet least twenty people have reportedly been injured in a blast at a major oil refinery in the u.s. that it was constant officials in the city of superior say six being treated in hospital firefighters are currently working to put out the blaze caused by an explosion apparent first place big following say the fired initially being brought under control but then buying up it went again it reignited people who live close to the husky energy oil refinery have been advised to stay away from the area. just international is demanding that the ukraine government investigate an attack

americans wanted normalizations the normalised and when you normalize you can talk . and i want to tell you from my experience in cuba when the united states you sugar. instead of a hammer things change in cuba in the way that the united states wanted it. you never know what's around the corner you never know what's in the pub you going
9:51 pm
to walk and you never know who's going to be there and it's the excitement it's that not know it that's where the adrenalin must comes from through. only going is a means by definition and extremes to all for your support because you're prepared to fight for the reputation and name of your football club. the violence is a part of it and it's almost a schizophrenia gang culture like it's a part time gang culture where you can do all these things and behave like that. i. believe an ism is a beast if you only evolves it's constantly evolving. vertebral
9:52 pm
market zero zero. zero zero over to the oracle. despite owning three restaurants he still prefers to tenderize and grill me to himself it isn't just his stuff and clients who called him the shelf chef is the nickname of the founder of the wise men from gothenburg one of the most violent gangs of football hooligans in europe. back down extremity and into heaven anyways it was promising to do so good to football he wanted a family and everything in stockholm a lot and now it's all more violent supporters and for them yes it was kind of easy
9:53 pm
targets for thought in doing trips over there risking pubs you know just to rest people and a few us finally had enough and like ok the flight back. from vienna is more like self-defense most of my boot and sort of we've had to do this is that it is more or fans started going to trips abroad. i mean standing up i read stall or wrecked stuff a stabbing was there it started in a face of before is a small like old school fighting storming pogs closing each other with no real words you know people are using sticks and knives and bottles and everything would you ever going to get your hands on chairs now it's more violent but there roylance was more respect and we didn't have any leads and actually want to kill each other . and indiana that i die when i was actually died now it's more sportsmanship well for this fight. i.
9:54 pm
i. i. oh i'm going to. get together on haunted posts both stated tykes for the throne sixty plus and. when a young you really have to show yourself you have to participate in all the fights you have to go to games. or if i think it's really important if you and i will be along you can play can blame all my golf and don't want to go we had to go. thank you for the unfussy fight maybe six times a year i mention be too old to get away six times a year well. i.
9:55 pm
think up these days you're going to have to train at least three times a week. and you won't cheat on your part of my story i mean if you take out all of twenty five the strongest try to sell me trying to foist on us by fall into the team so you don't want to have someone who's just hanging over. me. oh no. no oh well. almost everyone uses might show some members from so. basis starbucks. and i may and i'm fine with the we tried to train together here.
9:56 pm
granted he did i see on monday for when they come where the day you know they're going to try to get to a new number salute them move on with a piece and stuff like that so it's different every day. because sometimes we both are secluded gathering and sometimes we get that the. central time we've been before there may be a year later but there's they want to fart in tone and we miss the group but also. the best way to find them is so if we're stuck. or just following them too old or something like that too late the night before the day most of the game it depends. i think there is still. the pub and i became firefighters on plus a suite on third person so usually it's about the one two three minutes let's
9:57 pm
get it to we. got them. on the ground or they run away they're going to sit around and so technical it's more about sceptical numbers feel some one on em games yeah rayman bang and everything so if we started out we would start to. take a little bit of you know into that because it was an interesting. because it's a whole a club scene from scandinavia that probably the most crazy i think that any one of the most right wing friends. that's quite scary. similar extreme for. the wise men and badly boys set all of those guys it is all about the fight becomes about the confrontation clubs know every game but
9:58 pm
when you've got a local rivalry it will be if there is any violence it will be about who comes out on top. and. for the list. came into the. yeah the greek capital is divided into zones of influence between the greens and the reds and i goes and supporting hooligans.
9:59 pm
are just like them being something of a different. kind of thing. you know forgot all about the law after the with lots they come up where are the same but if a comment so. that's what they want to. but i know my style a bit on the some of you have limited on the guts to move on this thing's huntsmen on a six and scott summit and we sample moscow this is the world like you but i get it's a phenomenon mixing like it's one of only. people who become the focus of us a little more we should be paying for you all but it was an essential that's going on us that i speak on about no one without among them is the last one let us alone
10:00 pm
the. second i'm going to get on with it but the author might make it that way saying if get in last you know it's a confluence of the body's most. you know going to do this and others like i actually said i think i'm one of the things you've got to psych. the we don't have them we don't. one of the four thirty no no if this is. just a loss. of fifty on effects on some of you to use this. to . make you so much like i thought i might ultimately. the visible of arrests. for months and. they said almost on a fair amount of freedom i brought a bunch of. rivalry
10:01 pm
between the fans of two athens based clubs a libyan cause and panathinaikos has become a war of attrition that has raged for decades the conflict has seen dozens of young greeks mutilated and even killed. every ounce and still be provoked street fights in southern europe the fair play rules between hooligans are really observed they win motorcycle helmets fight with sticks steel roads and often knives to. the unicorn that are a missed suffer most of their own will almost half the cost of their own will then is that the name mosques they love are now in a minute they will send our source for the left other than the one you know. well you because you want to and i of course and to you and i do my loans are going on. this they will do that some of this fourth day off that all me source joshi want to ask them what they see a lot of but they have some what i want they see how much i learned from give
10:02 pm
a shelter. to the left those that have been in the night because someone said i listen yes they don't mean to come to so let me see what i'm interested in. your list i'll make them one of them on the spot i missed you but oh yes the lord wanted to go. allin bianca's fans have been banned for the team's next two. but even though no spectators will be able to attend the next match that doesn't mean there will be no fighting the olympiakos hooligans are scouring the city in search of rival groups two hours before kick off scouts report finding twenty odd person i call schools. a
10:03 pm
group of reds immediately sets off for the location finding anything they could use as a weapon close to her. it's the threat of violence and the potential for violence that is where the adrenaline comes. on in the traction of the hooligan coach for many is the fact that it's unmatched aping it doesn't impact on the rest of the week. and in many cases you won't even see the guys you see at football during the working week because you come from all different places different thing. for boys in extreme poverty have always been linked because football provides a very good recruiting ground for these people because you go to groups of working class lads together. so it's easy to spread that message easy to find in like
10:04 pm
minded individuals my view my personal view is that the country everyone needs to be keeping an eye on in terms of hooliganism and racism is germany because of the immigration situation. i think there is a huge amount of anger in germany and it's festering because i have history as i said. join me everything on the alex salmond show and i'll be speaking to guest on the world of politics small business i'm show business i'll see that. apply to many clubs over the years so i know the game and so i got. the ball isn't only about what happens on the pitch for the final school it's about the passion
10:05 pm
from the fans it's the age of the super money kill the narrowness and spend each image of the twenty million album fly. it's an experience like nothing else on to because i want to share what i think of what i know about the beautiful guy breaks a woman runs for. and six points. a few hours before the game the stuttgart hooligans and ultras gather in an informal club that only group members can enter not even the police can get in without a warrant. i just don't care. if
10:06 pm
you have. if i just. have one scout forms for you. it's a game of one hundred fifty trying to avoid. visit a class on game i did some in shadow. undress is a veteran who are going instead got a distinguished member of the group he started fighting back in the eighty's he's one of the few who aren't afraid to show their faces. because if you can specify a gun we're excited about. this because if president praises and libra. for your job cyclists mean to go they going and they have annoyed said it was a sin and we're taking that so we go in and overboard like this but then the high end up to this i would say oh this is what we can cops and that is one side and going on and when or if i just i'm just up on the outside it's not and. we've all learned that if you're on the fence in the force and so in our cars. and on the
10:07 pm
cement i was in talk i was committed to stein adults in the thousand as much time it was missing and now being somebody of some children doesn't this fall so the as to close if was partially going to have worried me could muster up the world as he was and as fundies and i jump him a tough kid and he buys. my lingo my mother so you know what i became of this decision was wrong and i'm just confused as to strong agreement so this. side and side of practitioners can decide if i knew it up we took him for us to say awesome odds are some of the doubt so income. not done describing just brute. than i'll be shown for the job so i'm both. lost this is new done sign lol fine for me and infirmed. good on hollis for the start.
10:08 pm
he just bought a start and then that's or to give it to through or. if. you want certain i'll stop once and. vendor. will be. on this side list. and so forth it can do a blitz and it was. so depending god is fully on soldiering kalu coffee and. blood and will randomly say listen going to pop tarts and some fleece lloyd and millwood and.
10:09 pm
also some of the knowledge and use in your mind in which the money flowed it can live on the phone in the months of john mcphee annoyed the money which in what you feel on monday to flow into the building supply you don't do you know did don't so from your here on. this i'm from his or her foodie view a good muslim on sharon to show him circumvent us live in. the martial law it is fun but it would close on my show sister in law and so when he actually comes to dinner we danced. really puts a. real slug honey sorted. out for them looking like you did you know one of the cops to give all those school to me about.
10:10 pm
a month before they still got game with german police visited the headquarters of one who can gang to interrogate its leaders they learn that a large fight was being planned ever since then all over the country police have watched fans and hooligans closely on match days. before with a cell phone now that he's in the internet to my contact and they do it in a y. which is as anonymous as i can be and as secret as they can make it. again the attraction is that excitement of klein and stuff. about bullying it's about coming out on top it's about who is the bravest the maddest the most organized the most violent the most well trained. and it becomes like almost.
10:11 pm
commonplace to think of feet in gothenburg the main bridge in gothenburg right here and it's well located because you can see it whenever you travel the main bridge will see the painting you know. for example what will happen to. another city will come and try to change over it. of course that's a good they will have a reaction i live a little like twenty four seven no doubts. but of course extra matches if we have a sounds to get a fight may be ill thought out a bit tell you right much itself but it will depends on the match also on the type of fight the ticket yet in so. hopefully will get
10:12 pm
a fight google into the are very big of rivals to last so we always want to get a shot to put them in the place. we don't have a good relationship with the cops of course they try to lock us up to try to stop our fights paul cuts a. little over. three. zero. zero but.
10:13 pm
when you're in the fight when you're in that's so when it's hard to explain how you feel about it but it's on the incredible rush. kremlin oriya rage separate thing all the most is mixed up in one. place really much no. the problems in sweden they don't deal with going on the ongoing it's. really can't understand it because they know we have a room see and also we've been seen as trying to exclude you know of course a key to reach out there in the fields but still be don't be don't overdo it when you knock down you know don't love stand stomping and jumping on people. and they know that a small set of i really don't get it. if you were to can one of them is all thing
10:14 pm
would have skated it would be nice to do to do a crawl called orbison polling or something i mean to be killing each other over there we didn't want to. vote so far or feel so yeah it was. nice everything says a frightful fight you know and you got to get some promises to get chicks and they are. you know when to fight then i mean sometimes it's kind of old to stuff yourself and i catch this guy you know sometimes my teeth of course want to stop and if a fancy mixer drops. by me i just leave because i never see this but i think. this is for me.
10:15 pm
it's. just. looks like it's. going to the sense that that's. a given for the field so that. if. something was most likely. to be. on a false then they can make up the you can implement.
10:16 pm

los angeles the city of luxury and fame but also an alarming number of people living in the streets. the simple fact in l.a. is there's just not enough shelter even if people on the streets right now decided to come in there's nowhere to come in and it's been a struggle. this man's bone his own response to the problem and constructed dozens of tiny homes for people in need of shelter. when you have nothing in order to go. you know having something like this may as well be a castle do the authorities accept such. a tiny house on a city parking space is not a solution perth to someone wanted touring the site otherwise it'll be a free for all the news there a better alternative to end the homelessness crisis. look

to. tonight development from the hague on the alleged chemical attack in syria's duma with russia were invited local witnesses to give their story as they testified that the incident was staged. in that they have all been in the basement and then heard someone not. side scream going to hospital we were scared they started to pour water on me i don't know why they did this of on going as professionals we saw that there were no symptoms suggesting chemical weapons had been used. elsewhere catarrh of which regional rivals and now there are claims a dubai based company commission to film linking the beleaguered gulf state terrorism in order to justify sanctions. and not even a dollar facebook's technology chief stresses to british m.p.'s that moscow's
10:21 pm
spending on the brics it vote total all of ninety seven cents. is his art international broadcasting worldwide from r.t. h.q. moscow with me kevin owen just turned midnight here now first no symptoms of chemical poisoning that so local doctors are describing the aftermath of the attack in the syrian city of duma on april the seventh witnesses explained how it all unfolded to the un backed chemical watchdog alongside russia's representative to the group artie's peter all of it has all the details. well russia's main representative russia's permanent representative to the o p c w alexander should begin he was an equivocal in what he had to say he described the incident that took
10:22 pm
place in doomer on the seventh of april a sloppily staged chemical attack saying that the blame lay with the likes of the united states france and the united kingdom for actually carrying out the staging of that now he was also backed up in the statements by the syrian representative the v.o.p. c.w. and was then later followed by a series of different witnesses who were on the scene in. that tank know one of those and perhaps the most profound of those was eleven year old son be up he was one of those people that was prominently featured in in videos of the alleged chemical attack. he described a very different scene in that they have a. we were in the basement and then heard someone outside scream go to hospital we were scared they started to pour water on me i don't know why they did this.
10:23 pm
do you remember where it happened. right here. where is it. here it is. that they poured water on me they put me here and then took me upstairs to my mother. and that's mean the video that's me. yes it was a long press conference it was a very detailed press conference they they also brought up to the stage
10:24 pm
a number of doctors who had been on duty in the hospital at the time and they went into at times excruciating detail about what they saw and what they didn't see on that day on the seventh of april in fact some doctors saying that although they trained people for us to fix the ation for problems with breathing they didn't treat people with the symptoms that you would associate with a chemical poisoning. on the seventh of april i was in the emergency room treating patients injured during the fighting the same day around seven pm we started receiving patients with breathing problems about fifteen cases this happened because people were nailing smoke and dust they only showed symptoms of choking and nothing more it all happened because one missile hit a building nearby and a lot of does go into the. hospital rooms people had injuries they had trouble breathing but we had patients like that arriving all the time and the screams chemical weapons chemical weapons we used to create panic this lasted for about an
10:25 pm
hour we were treating the patients and sending them home and we had no fatalities or instances of people suffering from poisonous substances so certainly far more questions are being raised following this press conference that have been announced that. last evening we got expert opinion on the reaction coming from western countries into these latest revelations we. either ignored or attempts will be made. on the mind it can be really on the way but i think when ordinary people. can really. abound. in fact anybody with half a brain could the these are credible witnesses they refused to see this as evidence obviously pending what the o.p.c. double team is going to come up with. it's highly unlikely that they would say
10:26 pm
first of all that there was a chemical attack while these three activists were quick to do what they did to bomb the place because they knew they didn't have a solid case they wanted to bomb without with disregard to whatever was happening over there so it shows actually that they knew that there was no chemical attack but they were willing to do whatever it takes us or there are forty or so they think and say we're still on the table. it's been revealed that a dubai based company hired a top level p.r. executive to produce a film linking catarrh with terrorism a report from the bureau of investigative journalism also claims propaganda material was created for the pentagon breaking it all down forus more again as they have a senior correspondent. there's no propaganda quite like military propaganda psychological operations that these psyops serious stuff aside from near unlimited money you also don't have to deal with all those annoying ethical restrictions on tissues
10:27 pm
newsgathering. for having seen the process and worked in the process of them realize this is a big project so we would do the news items that would go out on the news and or on various channels locally and we were to make it its best we could look as if it was made locally belled part to injure specialized didn't military grade propaganda the british p.r. firm was active in iraq for years to the us commander there they did crazy stuff faked local news reports smeared iran put together. propaganda videos planted them in people's homes and tracked who viewed them i was asked by my boss. we need to make. this style of video. and we've got to use it is footage
10:28 pm
and all their propaganda to it and we're going to track of our google analytics good times last year bellport injure lost its license after it emerged that it likely stalked racial tensions in south africa as part of its work their thing with having morals is once you lose them it's difficult to pick them up again but i digress guess what bellport and just former boss is up to the biggest diplomatic crisis in the middle east since the first gulf war a growing diplomatic crisis that qatar seems to be in crisis as more middle eastern countries sever diplomatic ties with saudi arabia bahrain egypt and the u.a.e. have all cut diplomatic ties with cut up you know the whole cat saudi arabia schism where the two u.s. allies almost came to blows here that was helped by charles and dreher the man who oversaw bellport injures operations in iraq propagandist extraordinary
10:29 pm
financial and logistical support for terrorists and terrorism groups like hamas the taliban and al qaida who operate freely out of doha and use business and financial institutions to support radical islam and global jihad. mr on dreher was paid handsomely by a dubai based company to smear qatar tire to terrorists to iran to tell everyone how bad. it is using the iraqi formula anyway where's the radical islamism is operational. significant operation going to be fine with. these documentary it really isn't became available on netflix. it was shown to trump's former chief strategist steve bannon former cia director
10:30 pm
david petraeus ex defense secretary leon panetta just to make it clear foreign money gulf arab money used to make a fake propaganda film by professionals and then shown to millions shown to some of america's most influential figures to promote international conflict on fake grounds this is psyops the big time league of propaganda. or so fun trail associates was produced the film as well as the dubai based company lapis communications of not chosen to get back to us we can tell you to comment on the matter of the deal we'll let you know now the film was released last summer when gulf states cut diplomatic trade and transport ties with carter accusing it of supporting terrorism so the doe is repeatedly denied but then the u.s. president sided with arab nations saying carter hurt had
10:31 pm
a history of funding terror at the very high level saudi arabia took the lead in the isolation campaign which became foreign minister is now warning the qatari government it could collapse if it doesn't support washington's military operations in the middle east could start should finance the u.s. military's presence in syria and send its own military forces there before the u.s. president american protection for qatar if the u.s. is to withdraw its protection represented by its military base in qatar then the regime there will fall within less than a week the saudi foreign minister was referring to the presence of over eleven thousand u.s. troops in qatar he made the remarks after donald trump called for money and ground support in syria from his wealthy allies in the middle east over security analyst and former british army officer charles shoe bridge believes it's the saudis who should be concerned over their friendship with washington right now. it's using this issue as a stick to beat qatar and of course qatar has used its considerable wealth to
10:32 pm
attack for example in propaganda terms saudi arabia both countries have been uncomfortable allies for some time certainly that by backing the syrian rebellion of course in this particular instance saudi arabia knows that qatar is not in a position to physically provide troops on the ground simply because its armed forces are small but of course they would like to see qatar finances further trained it's interesting donald trump's remarks and self has said that without us in other words without the americans those countries before within hours or weeks or something like this and said this is a truce that is very rarely spoken publicly and they want to go to deflect attention onto one another. facebook's had another grilling from lawmakers this time in the u.k. the social media giants been taken to task by m.p.'s over the platforms handling of people's private data and questioned over russian online activity around the time
10:33 pm
of the big brics. the details russian brock's it could have been potentially a hot topic here in westminster this thursday however that did not go quite well as a grilling of a top facebook executive didn't seem to go and produce too much we did look at several times to understand connections between. russia and the brits a referendum that you meant in two thousand and sixteen we found one dollar of spend so this is the extent of what we found which is you know almost nothing could be the ways of the it wouldn't that if we had it happen to look good if it was doing it this way. you know i can't prove a negative that was facebook's chief technology officer who to add insult to injury was sent by my. mark zuckerberg to answer m.p.'s questions depart despite repeated pleas to have the facebook c.e.o.
10:34 pm
appear before this committee himself and we have to be clear that this is far from the first time when attempts to connect the dots between russia's use of social media and brags that have failed just previously we know that facebook said that they have found that russia had spent less than a dollar on any ads related to brackets and even when this committee traveled all the way to washington to get more answers that did not produce very much we looked at all advertisements with any connection to russia and we found no evidence of our services being used to interfere in the referendum a very small number of suspects it's not research agency linked accounts forty nine such accounts were active during the campaign which represents less than point north of the total number of accounts that these are very low level things until we complete this investigation we won't know but what we haven't had is. information that's enabled those to target on a particular page or
10:35 pm
a particular phenomenon. the gold club in the state of pennsylvania has apologized to five black women for calling the police on them they were kicked off the groans after the code owner of the club and his father complained that women were playing get this too slowly well it's the latest in a series of incidents where african-americans have been arrested or asked to leave a public facility in the u.s. . why you are. most sunday then a black woman is arrested at a waffle house sees the picture is not a bomb and for refusing to pay pone for plastic utensils or video of her unrest shows offices wrestling it to the floor and then it was another case two weeks ago and stone books in philadelphia stuff there called the police on two black men because they apparently not placed an order and wanted to use the restroom that sparked a wave of one to racism protests. by. john k. i didn't want my son. to school to see you know starbucks hold it all restaurants
10:36 pm
to close for mandatory anti racism training following a nationwide campaign against the coffee chain we go reaction from economist at perkins and human rights activists randy short and i. know racism against the two shins is real and the were prejudices real that we need to care about america as well as an entire society and look after everyone if we don't do this we're going to have worse problems i have enormous difficulty accepting the idea that this young lady trying to run her starbucks in philadelphia spends time thinking about class and segregation and trying to target black beetle can't she's trying to run the restaurants and she's trying to do. order and keep the business working and not let people take advantage over you guys loitering and not purchasing products from
10:37 pm
the store while using their facilities how do you stop that from happening again but i don't think that's a little girl running the starbucks as best she can and reluctantly calling the police to sign saying saying loitering again is thinking about using loitering laws against black people yes there are people that have a literate and businesses yes there are folks out of water some of them of black but i've worked with a lot of white drunks in my. day and they don't get handled quite the same way this is a fact i'm a glass lanolin playing another slowly than men then five women together play very slowly and the entire culture is waiting for the fact has nothing to do with it it's the fact that they are lol as a long ass people pretend that injustice and mistreatment of people is ok as long as it does not impact yeah that is the problem with the majority it they lack an understanding that it can be us today and it could be them tomorrow now this is where i asked myself the question at what point do you treat black people like
10:38 pm
ordinary people and subject them to ordinary rules of society at what point do you stop taking every incident as racism and started valuating them as human beings and how they're reacting that's my question but you. seem to cut the budget american broadcaster n.b.c. is joining the dots and discover that i. t's online series in case you missed it is in fact linked to a t. and expose a article in the journalist say they looked at the registration data very carefully of the show's website and then very carefully cross checked it against the registration for. we could just save all that trouble so they got a website there it is. the high and mighty the click on shows bold you'll see the link for you may have missed it when in response to n.b.c. scoop in case you missed it it's taken viewas back on the scenes to blow the lid off this connection to ati. so here we are
10:39 pm
very slick officers although there is a slight smell in the. vodka and caviar. we're in so it was probably a spy i keep an eye on it. but first glance it looks like any other office but take a look below the surface and something starts to seem off we spoke to i see why in my eyes members of staff so tell me what's it like working for someone connected to r.t. well i always loved the topless game show tutti frutti when i was at school there you could get a skull right but that was that was on the sky channel r.t.l. this is this is r.t. this is this is funded by russia we're talking about well what you mean r.t. is funded by russia for the russians well. yeah i mean if your
10:40 pm
parents is mainly just one in stuff over to polly and things like that to be honest i've never really had so much freedom at work no one tells you how to answer for over and i'm just really happy but do you work alone i mean do. you know really something i like to talk about. sure i have total freedom to study looked at who was what was it talks to move to for a short order of bits from toss to look for fuel. or limited supply. on a good collection of approved for laundry. or more. and i've just heard that the host of the show polly boy has just arrived at work so let's see if we can get a word with her miss bordereau. was booker hi you are aware that i see why my is funded by the russian state through us he wants us. all.
10:41 pm
yeah that way yeah yeah i got the email yeah. i've just got to take this inside. so there we have it i see links to r.t. you'd have to be pretty special think it was a secret. cover blown then catch the show online r.t. dot com now expects a serious stuff controversy brewing over the imminent release of an american prisoner who spent more than four decades behind bars for the murder of three policeman herman bell is set to walk free on friday but new york's police union has been making a desperate last ditch attempt to keep him locked up caleb maupin has got the story . herman bell the tourist for being a cop killer and a member of the black liberation army will soon become a free man after spending nearly fifty years behind bars for shooting policeman dead now the new york parole board's decision even had the support of a son of one of the slain officers but since the individuals with no knowledge of
10:42 pm
ms to bellow the circumstances that led me to support his release many years ago have taken it upon themselves to drum up hate and then gins the parole board of new york might have shown sympathy and a willingness to forgive but not the policeman's union the patrolmen's benevolent association they're guilty then and they're guilty now and no copula should ever walk the face of the year now siding with the police's n.y.c. mayor bill de blasio who called for the decision to be reversed and for bell to stay behind bars the parole board received over three hundred sixty seven thousand letters urging them not to free herman del despite his record as a model prisoner well not quite there and not actually that many individual messages the associations website gave compliance the option of automatically sending a letter for each of the sixty two cop killers listed on the site that meant that fewer than six thousand objections to bell's release generated over three hundred
10:43 pm
sixty seven thousand messages completely distorting the level of the outcry in fact according to one poll eighty six percent of new yorkers support the parole board's decision we decided to talk with some former cops about the associations ethics i can't comprehend a man who openly admitted to killing three cops. i can't comprehend how that person would be allowed to walk the streets i could picture every cop out there being absolutely outraged the point of acting on their motion especially in today's climate where they are still abused do your government is trying their back on the police officers i can absolutely picture now one. they're not wanting six hundred thousand plus letters being sent to the parole board to eb requesting this man's parole be denied it's manipulation you know i mean i remember this very tragic incident he actually sued three people to put parole is what it is you know we have
10:44 pm
murderers rapists arsonists people in paroled every single day and they are hell bent on if you kill a cop they won't use this right engine to jail is supposed to reform people now cops like to talk about the perilous situations they put themselves in and the public that they serve in order to do that but this incident will leave some in new york questioning their integrity. r.t. new york at least twenty people have reportedly been injured in a blast at a major oil refinery in the u.s. it was cosen officials in the city is sapir is say six of being treated in hospital firefighters are currently working still to put the blaze and say it was caused by the explosion but a big fire was initially brought in the control then it reignited people who live close to the husky energy oil refinery been advised to stay away from the area. international's demanding that the ukrainian government investigate an attack on a roma gypsy camp in the capital kiev.
10:45 pm
last week a nationalist group destroyed the camp children reportedly injured in the incident people fled when you see the pictures it was the tension of the belongings were burnt the attackers also used tear gas and reportedly guns. currently no one can be sure that they won't become the next week to swarm up radicals they shoot themselves with mattresses and caring for the public but actually they're terrorizing ordinary people police in kiev say there were no reports of violence and that the fires were part of what's been described as a cleanup operation a political commentator we spoke to think still though the nationalism and nationalists in ukraine have the government's support i suppose that on the local level some policemen of the world try to prevent violence but when the government and the parliament officially praise and glory find that says how can expect
10:46 pm
anything else and i said actually it's not they first came to jews is the first said by their they came to obvious when they came to me it was too late i mean people in the west should not be silent about it meanwhile authorities in another city in ukraine are voting to painting contests to mark the creation of a nazi division in the country during the second world war two marriages are being asked to draw something linked to ukrainians who volunteered for that nazi unit and indeed the cash prize for the best one of the duress could have some to say about that again he says the rise of nationalism is not confined to ukraine. maybe many places in europe kind of see in their own radical. views are becoming more and more popular and this is a result of the whole crisis which was caused by immigration european union cannot provide an answer and this atmosphere of certain despair today causes some right

wing radical groups to succeed in certain places. in l g b t group has dropped american political journalist joy reid from its awards list the move comes after scandal surrounding alleged homophobic posts on reid's blog in which for example she reportedly said she was disgusted by homosexuals scenes in movies now she did apologize partly in december for those comments but more recent post of swung the group to finally rescind the nomination. i regret the way i addressed the complex issue of the closet and speculation on the true sexual i mean titian with a mocking tone and sarcasm. i
10:48 pm
hope that whoever came up to the side recognizes the theme of course not just to me but to my family and communities that i care deeply about she lied about it she claims she never wrote those blog posts in the first place someone else did she said she had a sinister insurance perhaps a blood clot in her foot and. when we reviewed the archives we found nothing to indicate tampering or hacking of the way back machine versions.
10:49 pm
and without thought to discover the inside watching as i was from in the team era moscow those latest two on our side twenty four seventh's dot com there are programs in your part of the world continue right after this break. the. lord. lord lord it was by. the
10:50 pm
lord the lord. goes the for the stimulus and these really need. to give up. in the news in every dreams of getting grieved and other. things here this thing here in the venture would have to find ways of living side by side peacefully. trumps foreign policy could be described as double speak the president doesn't have a defined policy approach even goals are difficult to discern is this what the art of the deal means is trumps foreign policy making america great again and the world safer.
10:51 pm
america has or this is the kaiser report i meant to rob it's the wintertime slow spring that can all stanley cup action baby that's why i'm here. plus some other stuff to stay safe thanks. for the block chain economic event it's being put on by sonny ray we've interviewed him on kaiser for it use a c.e.o. dot com this is actually back to the sort of conferences we have some amazing people at this have and people like adam back people like chris earnest people like who is going to be on the keiser report while we're here but you know what while we've been here as well and opening her mouth and adopting our way christine let's add to this i.m.f. boss christine lagarde praises cryptocurrency and suggests it could transform the
10:52 pm
way people see and invest i would posit that it has already see you know transform the way people save and invest it's already done that she's saying it could do that because it is a black hole and it is sucking in folks from all walks of life and money from all points on the globe and as it expands it just the wharfs the size of anything else trying to compete with it that includes various money regimes it also includes very high level bankers and economists so christine legarde is just the latest to get them to the bitcoin black hole and she'll be utterly transformed she'll be talking about the white paper soon everything she thought she knew about economics is over rule everything she thought she knew about the way the world works is now no longer viable she is now an apostle of satoshi welcome christine legarde bugan do. new. fun to do the new.
10:53 pm
law i also want to point out somebody else we've mocked many times over the years who also has come around because we didn't give him a lot of attention when he had the large short position in silver in the world we did give him a lot of attention when he basically received a back door bell out through the financial crisis we did give him a lot of attention when he called bitcoin a fraud but i do want to remind people from january ninth two thousand and eighteen just a few weeks after jamie dimon had called big point a fraud here's a headline that we didn't cover because we were covering the genesis block during that week and that is jamie dimon says he regrets calling big careen a fraud and believes in the technology behind it in september diamond called bitcoin a fraud i regret making that comment he said tuesday on fox business the block chain is real he added in the interview you can have crypto dollars in yam and stuff like that i see oh yes you've got to look at everyone individually the big
10:54 pm
question was to me what the governments are going to feel about bitcoin when it gets really big and i just have a different opinion and other people say rumor he is a guy who's a statist what he has to be right because you can't be a free market guy and be the head of the largest bank in the world and the largest derivatives book importantly in the world because of that derivatives book blows up as it threatened to do back in two thousand and eight you need big daddy government big mama janet yellen big mama christine lagarde you need these people to bail you out next year jamie diamond will be at burning man you'll see stark naked with honey slab all over his body rolling around on a mound of fire ants with fierce rock i'll be there taping it for the show he'll be our reporter on the ground will be on the plane and make it jamie diamond talking about the toshiba aka moto at burning man in twenty eight and that's
10:55 pm
a common. effect that coin has on the mind is the jamie diamond is not as dumb man is not a stupid then he doesn't have a functioning brain cells what happens is the block chain starts to reorient those brain cells like gravity effect on a star or a planet or this table or this earth it just changes the way the architect of your mind works especially if you're in the financial industry to begin to understand that you now are an apostle of social nakamoto so i want to talk about like he had mentioned. that governments would respond if the individuals had too much sovereignty that they're going to smash you they're going to throw you into a gulag they are going to destroy you they will not let you become more powerful than my bank you collectively more powerful than my bank so there is another story related to that that shows that well in fact. bitcoin is censorship resistant you can try all you want to restrict us to put it down but the whole
10:56 pm
community is global it's decentralized it's peer to peer and it's the smartest people in the world now china of course everybody knows is a giant behemoth state they have a lot of control over their citizenry they have a lot of capital controls they have a lot of the great firewall of china and we know that they've cracked down on big point chinese entrepreneurs have some creative responses to the government's crackdown on crypto crypto is far from dead in china is starting to eke back into existence they did a lot of exchanges did leave the country but in its place are erupting in china unique to china decentralized exchange as we have them here emerging in the united states and canada as well as regulators crack down in exchanges china september crackdown also included a ban on i c o o's the crowdfunding schemes based on crypto tokens in china as elsewhere these
10:57 pm
had acquired a shady reputation companies looking to raise funds quickly were selling digital tokens or coins that were supposed to buy access to some product or service in the future but they often had no way to fulfill these promises a chinese term emerged keep or air tokens but we predicted that twenty year that the nation state is challenged by it and that's exactly what's happening in china it is censorship resistant it is resilient people want to trade people will find a way out of the vietnamese beat america in that war because they were resilient you could bomb all day long but they found a way they found a way to keep going and they eventually beat an empire out of the us beat the british empire we found a way in the end to be helped in a cause that we asked a french. law and we beat the empire now we've got a new empire. they're called the nation state and the central banking system that runs on fear money nonsense and big coin will defeat them and the important thing
10:58 pm
about the eruption of initial quain offerings that happened last year and this kind of petered out now that there are crackdowns on it and apparently innovators and entrepreneurs are finding ways around the regulations but it did show that the likes of jamie dimon had failed there was a demand for the likes of jamie dimon what he considers you know the good guys of the regulators and government that they had cracked down too much there was demand by people to invest in things they wanted her temper to speak in the financial environment the small young guys with an idea wanted to raise capital and that was it was hard for them to access a capital as they point out here that i see oban suppressed this digital crowdfunding of i.c.a.o. but it didn't address the root of the problem illegal fundraising of all kinds has thrived in china because the formal banking sector still favors large corporations and state owned enterprises smaller firms and entrepreneurs rely on a shadow banking sector to meet their needs for financing it's very similar in the
10:59 pm
u.s. obviously it's a more advanced financial system than in china in terms of the state owned banks but not too dissimilar i mean the small and medium sized enterprises don't have access to capital like the ones like amazon they could borrow money and do borrow money to share but buybacks and things like write well there is a political edge to it because in china as entrepreneurs find ways to do enron around the regulatory system and to swap an exchange and do all kinds of crypto related businesses the message will not go unnoticed by anyone looking to pursue free speech in china so no matter how they try to clamp down on free speech there will they'll find a way to get the free speech out there just like they're finding a way right now to get crypto out there so crypto is leading the way both and finance and in political activism gearing up to an. environment where no state can control speech it's censorship resistant in many
11:00 pm
many ways including that it's being used the power of block change technology and bitcoin that birth it is that even states are able to see that you know when one state like the u.s. controls the global financial system and you cannot access the rails of that financial system without jamie dimon or u.s. regulators saying you can access these rails then you're cut off from the grid in your you know your nation can starve but if there is a decentralized peer to peer on a miss network that is neutral and it functions simply as the rails of a free market system betters treats all participants in the market is equal then. you know it's it's not you can't censor it there's no way to stop transactions from people to get it coming together agreeing to a price for a product and exchanging ideas or products right so look at the forces that created
11:01 pm
the birth of the universe the black hole the forces that create the birth of life itself the day to procreate the forces that guide us as living beings on the multiverse i'm not going to be stopped by any state. releases power that is beyond even atomic power this is cosmic power it can't be stopped atomic swaps are coming atomic swaps are coming you know you can't you can't stop this with any force. all nation states got together and tried to stop because they would fail and that's very liberating i pointed out that decentralized exchanges are emerging all over the world there are rotting from you know the plasm of this new ecosystem and environment and there's evolution of ideas and the more people governments or regulators try to stop it the more fragile it
11:02 pm
becomes the more robust every time it keeps on coming back stronger and stronger but the article actually suggests that china the chinese government doesn't actually so much mind all this stuff happening they were worried about the destabilization in the financial system which they control because so many chinese investors were pouring into ice ceo's and there were a lot of scams around so the article points out that these activities of allowing air drops and decentralized exchanges may appear to go directly against the chinese government's orders but in a sense they may be what chinese officials wanted to see in their september edict the authorities talked about avoiding market chaos strengthening the education of investors and collectively safeguarding the normal financial order by china doesn't have. fundamental aversion to digital currencies in fact the central bank is developing its own currency additional currency will bring about a new financial ecosystem said shanklin ben dean of the academy of internet finance

as university the purpose of the crackdown he said was to curb excessive speculation and give the authorities time to upgrade their regulatory capabilities they were digging a hole and they decided to stop thinking and declare victory ok it was on their decision that decision was not the pole appear of trying to figure out they're just reacting to this bitcoin black hole is sucking up the entire nation of china and then when the rules china is being sucked into the big black hole if you want to be stocked up on this because like all states soon for the second half and you too will be sucked up into the clock all right after these words. look at the blockade in the animosity for fifty almost sixty years did it change
11:04 pm
the regime in cuba no the last administration realized that the majority of cuban americans wanted normalizations the normalised and when you normalize you can talk . i want to tell you from my experience in cuba when the united states you sugar. instead of a hammer things change in cuba in the way that the united states wanted it. or welcome back to the kaiser part i'm asked keyser time now to turn to a very special guest i'll preface this by saying cometh the hour cometh the man and i'll explain live in more what i mean by that tell invades welcome to the kaiser report thanks max it's great to be on finally are over
11:05 pm
watching the show throughout two thousand and thirteen and fourteen even before that actually got me into because that's awesome. days you know i mentioned at the top that cometh the hour come with them and you know i think that going back to twenty seventeen it going to actually face a bit of an existential crisis with this segue it story and you guys over there the world cup the network i'll give them a big shout out really nurse to the community through a difficult period with actually media and great communication and just tell little folks about this is a pretty complicated story but if you can kind of encapsulate that what happened it was really a rough time now we look back at it it wasn't a spur of the moment how everything was happening you never really had a chance to step back and think it was all about whether we can or can't have big blocks and while there was a moment where i thought yeah maybe we could go to a bigger block and increase the big size of the or the throughput of the month of
11:06 pm
transactions it was realized fairly quickly that no one has the power to force everybody in the community to upgrade their big coin nodes to have double the size of the blocks to go to two megabytes or beyond and the only solution was to find the way to scale without doing that so very good witness was a great coding upgrade that didn't force everyone to update it stayed within the consensus rules and it was the only way to go the user activate itself fork was a little bit reckless a little bit dangerous i'm glad i got. the bandwagon around june july and by august it was clear that it was going to win and i believe that we did ok there was a bit of an element there town that you know talking about the the elements that were involved in that that it seemed as though we had a big blocks or smaller blocks it seemed like there was a corporate agenda almost that there were some old g.'s in the space of corporations and fund managers that were really leaning on the whole big block
11:07 pm
story to satisfy a commercial and and the protocol ject of them almost as bad actors in the space i agree with though i wouldn't go as far as it was some kind of an agenda a lot of the businesses have structured their businesses based on certain conditions but bitcoin isn't the company bitcoin didn't promise anything to anyone and just because some businesses were really dependent on micro chance auctions before the system was able to feasibly do them for you cheaply those businesses were going to be in a little bit of trouble and the had to do more development than they wanted to adjust the segway and i think they wanted to take the lazy way out and force every user to upgrade and the user said no the companies need to upgrade with bitcoin this is what they chose and eventually all of those companies had to upgrade their systems to account for it and now we have
11:08 pm
a lot of transactions processing very very quickly and very cheaply and i think the system is so much better and so much more secure no those asserted themselves this is the miners they did and which is a good thing because when soto she initially launched it she did say one c.p.u. one vote but that was under the assumption that everyone is pretty much a miner and whether once a node could also mine with a six and the advancements in mining that was no longer feasible so how does a regular corner have a voice in the system and they do that by running. they're all no doubt and by validating their own transactions and the miners' urges they are to make money by creating new coins by processing our transactions and not dictate the future of development some say that the way to be a typical honor is to run your own do great i agree i wrote my own note i have been running a single minor running a minor is actually very difficult i'm trying to upgrade my minor now and i'm running into difficulties but i look i have
11:09 pm
a lot of respect for those that are able to run mining operations i do but again if this is going to be a decentralized peer to peer value transfer system. person has to have a say in it somehow and right now they have a say by processing their own transactions with their own note i say your claim to fame so to speak you teach people how to look at technical analysis in a big way that's something that you're big in the community for and let me just give us some background here you like myself kind of have a background on wall street and you've done a lot of options trading and so you have a base experience in the securities industry which is different than many people that come into crypto because they kind of come into it really without any experience in securities or wall street whatsoever but so when you talk to people back technical analysis what are you trying to teach them what what what what's
11:10 pm
your goal they're just trying to teach people trading is difficult and it's a skill set and you don't just come in and do it what i've noticed when i came into the space and twenty thirteen and twenty fourteen is that so many people were now becoming traders because there was such a little barrier to entry and being a trader because of crypto there's no age restriction no jew graphical restriction no financial restrictions you can share with one hundred two hundred dollars a lot of gamblers came within a space of schrader's because a lot of gambling sites and poker sites were paying out in crypto in bits. point mostly and these guys hey i want to do something else i don't have to play poker all the time i'm going to start trading and what i've noticed is that we're wasn't many professional traders and competent traders in the space so i started writing articles about technical analysis and the grew into a you tube channel about technical analysis and trying to predict the price of decor and i've had lots of really good calls i've had a few bad calls too i mean just the life of being a trader and now i've been traveling the country doing little workshops of ten to
11:11 pm
twenty people that want to spend a whole day learning the basics of technical analysis for trading i can only help any trader well the great value in this is twofold one is traders obviously looking for gains but probably more important with technical analysis it's address is risk management risk management is the key to trading success it's something that technical analysis helps because it gives you the ability to pick price points where you might want to put on some a strategy to get you out of a market that's not going in your favor this type of thing would you agree with that absolutely i think doubt a trader should trade as least a spa simple if you want to pick the perfect points where the statistics and probabilities are in your favor and the best advantage to technical analysis it can
11:12 pm
tell you where you are wrong based on technical analysis and you're entering a trade for a position you should already have a metric saying ok if it goes against me this amount i need to get out of this trade and wait for another opportunity sell saying technical analysis if you have a certain threshold that you are designating as your risk tolerance that applies to any security any all call any coin across any market regardless of what the company or the coin is about you have a certain bias toward risk this helps you manage that risk talk about wall street for a second you know futures. contractor interest in late two thousand and seventeen december twenty seventh seen hasn't had any impact of anything i don't think it had any actual impact on because other than the homo speculation that took place leading into those contracts i felt last year seventy five hundred should have been the top four because when i underestimated the kind of full blown exuberance people will have by the fact that a ball should this coming in the price went all the way to twenty thousand i mean i
11:13 pm
was trying to predict that each step of the way and the data futures launched people realize that hey it's not that big a deal the volume on the futures while increasing every week is still pretty small they're also cash settled and because their cash settled they shouldn't have much of an effect on the underlying price of fifth corps and it's not like the gold futures where the futures themselves are price discovery for gold futures on big coin are more like the s. and p. five hundred futures they don't really have an effect on the underlying stocks of the s. and p. five hundred so i see it as the same way and it wasn't dot big of a deal after they launched and it's great because now because it is definitely more legit to all of the average person that is thinking should i get in should i not get in while clearly the c.m.e. in the financial world considers it legit because of the futures so i think it has a long it's a great go and forward but as far as immediate effect on the price of a coin i don't think it has hold out much i'm talking about a loss in again
11:14 pm
a futures contract does give an institutional player ability to manage risk because they can heads a position which means they can take bigger positions and this is unique now to big point because there are no futures contracts on any other all going at the moment so my question is about all the goings i think some people view you as being a big big point maximalist. tend to shun the old coin market in sydney talk a little bit about. that that that that that idea i am a bit of a big maximalist but that's not because. i hate all of the old coins and i think their coin is going to be cave because i have money in decline i only do that because it is going to be the winner and that's where the money isn't quite as far as the old coins go there was a round of old coins that came in in the early days of twenty fourteen coins like light coins coins like one hour like your own coin max coin these like. banks going when these old coins showed up i didn't have
11:15 pm
a problem with these coins because they wore honestly created with the genesis block and like everybody knew about it they were launched well it's case of light coin it was all fair game for anyone to get and then the next round of old points came in as a sole source for the files or to get rich and i immediately classify all of those coins as outright scams because if the father has an advantage or if you mine the coin for a month and then it goes through five steak and then the next round of koans which is what a theory of kicked off was where you actually created from the beginning and pre-sell it to a bunch of people which i thought was an outright security like in the case of a theory and every i.c. over the followed so to me they've got three ms and i see you know it is and i see ok misery for the people started calling it. correct it is a nice yeah right and it is a security hole to me it is wall street that are on the last event or it looks like a duck it smells like a duck and quacks like a dud it isn't like insecurity so so to me everything just got progressively worse
11:16 pm
now i will say that even though i don't consider coins like max school in like like one like my narrow scams like i do on the rest i still feel that there is only room for one block chain the way we only have room for one internet so i do think that bitcoin will continue to separate from all of these other old coins even the honesty created ones over time the way you like amazon continues to separate from any other online retailer right so i would put i.c.l. is into that category of securities offerings i saying. we would agree on that and then it's going to move out of my last question which is that the twenty eighteen twenty nineteen time horizon what about the emerging second layer of it quite like lightning network so your thoughts i think that the lightning network and all the progress that's happening there is moving in faster than i expected i think they are going to focus on making it very user friendly to the point where it's still complicated to set up your own because
11:17 pm
a node but it should be as easy as da loading it up to have your own lightning no and using these lightning channels they should bring micro transactions the thing that people were expecting on the protocol itself but a lot of smart engineers basically looked at inside that's not really feasible does not how the system scale so i really am looking forward to all those lightning channels give us micro transactions and this should give you another layer of privacy i think there could be. a lots of good things that could be done as a second layer of fair coin to obscure those transactions to finally may pick one fungible and actually anonymous all right tom thanks so much for me on the cars report thank you already well that's going to do it for this edition of the kaiser report was made by skies or states or want to thank tone vanes legend if you want to catch us on twitter it's kaiser report so next time.
11:18 pm
you never. never in the world scene the pub you can use that excitement it's that knowing that's where the adrenaline in which comes from. it is the point if the dreams will produce. violence he's a punk and it's the mother's schizophrenia can we. and there were all these things and behave like. they're born with all the horsepower for all. of us will focus on the last. one this man infirmed there was all this in the start. of a broader where no i figure out really did a poll down down went up. meaning in reason is there anything if you don't buy the
11:19 pm
evolves it's constantly evolving and. palestine is getting international recognition with the help of israel at least in the world of zoos and middle feels dismissive to do you like you know that this isn't my cup of tea is going out to saudi i'll maybe you know john tell. me the only palestinians gets the most help from its jerusalem counterparts i don't think there's some of those who in the world under the oak vision did not only could do this. and that is all of your knowledge to how to display any of them a salvage yard and i'm going to compete in the doesn't seem to do more camillus also don't put this off. me.
11:20 pm
tonight development from the hague on the alleged chemical attack in syria's duma with russia are inviting local witnesses to give their stories they testify that the incident was staged they say. could never have all played out in the basement and then heard someone outside scream go to hospital we were scared. started to call water on me i don't know why they did this of on you and as professionals we saw that there were no symptoms suggesting chemical weapons had been used. elsewhere pressure is mounting on cattle from its regional rivals now there are claims a dubai based company commissioned a film linking the beleaguered gulf state to terrorism in order to justify sanctions. and not even a dollar facebook's technology chief stresses to british m.p.'s that moscow
11:21 pm
spending on steering the brics a vote total of ninety seven cents. hi good morning this is art international broadcasting worldwide for m r t h q moscow kevin zero in here one am now first no symptoms of chemical poisoning that's how local doctors are describing the aftermath of the attack in the syrian city of duma on april the seventh witnesses explained how it all unfolded to the u.n. chemical watchdog alongside russia's representative to the group peter all of the details. well russia's main representative russia's permanent representative to the o.p.c. w. alexander surely again he was an equivocal in what he had to say he described the
11:22 pm
incident that took place in duma on the seventh of april as a solo police staged chemical attack saying that the blame lay with the likes of the united states france and the united kingdom for actually carrying out the staging of that now he was also backed up in those statements by the syrian representative to the o p c w and was then later followed by a series of different witnesses who were on the scene in that time no one of those and perhaps the most profound of those was eleven year old son the op he was one of those people who was prominently featured in in videos of the alleged chemical attack he described a very different scene in that. we were in the basement and then heard someone outside scream go to hospital we were scared they started to pour water on me i
11:23 pm
don't know why they did this. do you remember where it happened. right here. and there is it. here it is. that they poured water on me they put me here and then took me upstairs to my mother. and i that's mean the video that's mean. yes it was a long press conference it was a very detailed press conference they they also brought up to the stage a number of doctors who'd been on duty in the hospital at the time they went into
11:24 pm
times excruciating detail about what they saw what they didn't see on that day on the seventh of april in fact some doctors saying that although they trade people for this fix the ation for problems with breathing they didn't treat people with the symptoms that you would associate with a chemical poisoning. on the seventh of april i was in the emergency room treating patients injured during the fighting the same day around seven pm we started receiving patients with breathing problems about fifteen cases this happened because people were in hailing smoke and dust they only showed symptoms of choking and nothing more it all happened because one missile hit a building nearby and a lot of dust got into the hospital rooms people had injuries they had trouble breathing but we had patients like that arriving all the time and the screams chemical weapons chemical weapons were used to create panic this lasted for about
11:25 pm
an hour we were treating the patients and sending them home and we had a great talent sees all instances of people suffering from poisonous substances so certainly far more questions are being raised following this press conference that have been announced that earlier i spoke to the former you can bastard to syria peter ford and also middle east expert and a whack of they believe the actual evidence matters little to western governments. either ignored or attempts will be made. on the mind it in fact is it can already underway but i think when ordinary people. can really. abound. in fact anybody with half a brain could see the these are credible witnesses they refused to see this as evidence obviously pending what the. team is going to come up with from
11:26 pm
you it's highly unlikely that they would say first of all that there was a chemical attack while these three actors were quick to do what they did to bomb the place because they knew they didn't have a solid case they wanted to bomb with with disregard to whatever was happening over there so it shows actually that they knew that there was no chemical attack but they were willing to do whatever it takes us or there are forty or so they think and say we are still on the. other news this morning has been revealed that the dubai based company hired a top level p.r. executive to produce a film linking catarrh with terrorism a report from a viewer who persecute of journalism also claims propaganda material was created for the pentagon breaking all day and now we're. there's no propaganda quite like military propaganda psychological operations that these psyops serious stuff aside from mere unlimited money you also don't have to deal with all
11:27 pm
those annoying ethical restrictions i just assumed it was news gathering. having seen the process and worked in the process of them realize this is a big project so we would do the news items that would go out on the news and around various channels locally and we were to make it its best we could look. as if it was made locally belled porton ger specialized in military grade propaganda the british p.r. firm was active in iraq for years and soaring to the us commander there they did crazy stuff faked local news reports smeared iran put together al qaida propaganda videos planted them in people's homes and tracked who viewed them i was asked by my boss. we need to make this style of video. and we've got to use it is footage
11:28 pm
and all their propaganda to it and we're going to track it for google analytics good times last year bellport injure lost its license after it emerged that it likely stalked racial tensions in south africa as part of its work their thing with having morals is once you lose them it's difficult to pick them up again but i digress guess what bellport and just former boss is up to the biggest diplomatic crisis in the middle east since the first gulf war a growing diplomatic crisis of qatar seems to be in crisis as more middle eastern countries sever diplomatic ties with saudi arabia bahrain egypt and the u.a.e. have all cut diplomatic ties with cut up you know the whole cat's saudi arabia schism where the two u.s. allies almost came to blows here that was helped by charles and dreher the man who
11:29 pm
oversaw bellport injures operations in iraq propagandist extraordinary financial and logistical support for terrorists and terrorism groups like hamas the taliban and al-qaeda who operate freely out of doha and use business and financial institutions to support radical islam and global jihad. mr on dreher was paid handsomely by a dubai based company to smear qatar tired to terrorists to iran tell everyone how bad. it is using the iraqi formula anyway where's the radical islamism is operation. significant operation going to be fine with. these documentary it really isn't became available on netflix you tube it was shown to trump's former chief strachan. just steve bannan former cia director david
11:30 pm
petraeus ex defense secretary leon panetta just to make it clear foreign money gulf arab money used to make a fake propaganda film by professionals and then shown to millions shown to some of america's most influential figures to promote international conflict on fake grounds this is psyops the big time league of propaganda so far and drone associates which produced the film as well as the dubai based lapis communications company of chose not to get back to us to comment on the matter if they do we'll let you know the film was released last summer when gulf states cut diplomatic trade and transport ties with cats are accusing it of supporting terrorism selling dollars repeatedly denied but then the u.s. president sided with arab nations saying that curtain had
11:31 pm
a history of funding terror at the very highest level saudi arabia took the lead in the isolation campaign kingdom's foreign minister is now warning the qatari government it could collapse if it doesn't support washington's military operations in the middle east could start should finance the u.s. military presence in syria and send its own military forces there before the u.s. president american protection for qatar if the u.s. is to withdraw its protection represented by its military base in qatar in the regime there will fall within less than a week the saudi foreign minister was referring to the presence of over eleven thousand u.s. troops encounter he made the remarks after donald trump called for money and ground support in syria from his wealthy allies in the middle east have a security analyst and former british army officer charles shoe bridge believes it's the saudis who should be concerned over their friendship with washington right now. it's using this issue as a stick to beat the tar of course qatar has used its considerable. attack
11:32 pm
for example in propaganda term saudi arabia both countries have been uncomfortable allies for some time certainly that by backing the syrian rebellion of course in this particular instance saudi arabia knows that qatar is not in a position to physically provide troops on the ground simply because its armed forces a small but of course they would like to see qatar's finances further trained it's interesting donald trump's remarks and self has said that without us in other words without the americans those countries would fall within hours or weeks or something like this and said this is a truce that is very rarely spoken publicly and they want to deflect attention onto one another. facebook sudden other grilling from lawmakers this time in the u.k. the social media giants been taken to task by m.p.'s over the platforms handling of people's private data and questioned over russian online activity around the time
11:33 pm
of the big brics a vote on this is the details russian brock's it could have been potentially a hot topic here in westminster this thursday however that did not go quite well as a grilling of a top facebook executive didn't seem to go and produce too much we did look several times to understand connections between. russia and the brits a referendum that you meant in two thousand and sixteen we found one dollar of spending so this is the extent of what we found which is you know almost nothing given to the ways i think it wouldn't if we had it happen to look good if it did have it it was done it this way. you know i can't prove a negative that was facebook's chief technology officer who to add insult to injury was sent by mark zuckerberg. to answer m.p.'s questions depart despite repeated pleas to have the facebook c.e.o.
11:34 pm
appear before this committee himself and we have to be clear that this is far from the first time when attempts to connect the dots between russia's use of social media and brags that have failed just previously we know that facebook said that they have found that russia had spent less than a dollar on any ads related to brackets and even when this committee traveled all the way to washington to get more answers that did not produce very much we looked at all advertisements with any connection to russia and we found no evidence of our services being used to interfere in that it referendum a very small number of suspects it's not research agency linked accounts forty nine such accounts were active during the campaign which represents must not point not five percent of the total number of accounts these are very low level things until we complete this investigation we won't know but what we haven't had this. information that's enabled us to target on a particular page or a particular phenomenon this is not international just ahead seems american
11:35 pm
broadcasters uncovered a shocking revelation regarding this journal it says. these programs are produced by t. more about that after this break.
11:36 pm
join me every thursday on the alex salmond field and i'll be speaking to guests of the world of politics or business i'm sure business i'll see you there. again folks tune into us today so american broadcaster n.b.c. is joining the dots spectacularly and discover that artie's online series in case you missed it is in fact linked to r.t. and in expose a article the journalist say they looked at the registration data so carefully at the show's website and then it was a carefully cross check to the against the registration for r.t.
11:37 pm
well we could have saved all that trouble just checking our website there is r.t. dot com go right to the top was a banner that says shows click the world in case you missed it well in response to n.b.c. scoop in case you missed it couldn't resist taking view is behind the scenes to blow the lid off this connection to r.t. . so here we are first look offices although there is a slight smell in the vodka and caviar. we're in so it was probably a spy keep an eye on it. but first glance it looks like any other office but take a look below the surface and something starts to seem off we spoke to i see why in my eyes members of staff so tell me what's it like working for someone connected to r.t. . well i always loved the topless game show tutti frutti when i was at school. you
11:38 pm
could get us girly right but that was that was on the sky channel r.t.l. this is this is r.t. this is this is funded by russia we're talking about well what do you mean r.t. is funded by russia for the russians well. yeah i mean if your parents is mainly just one in stuff over to poly and things like that to be honest i've never really had so much freedom at work no one tells you how to answer for over and i'm just really happy but do you work alone i mean i do not you know really something i like to talk about. sure i have total freedom to study looked at as long as it takes to move to for example sort of it's fantastic for. a limited supply. on a good collection prove records for a long. and i've just heard that the host of the
11:39 pm
show polly boyko has just arrived at work so let's see if we can get a word with her miss bordereau. was booker hi you are aware that i see why my is funded by the russian state through us he wants us. all. yeah that way yeah yeah i got the email yeah. i've just got to take this inside you so there we have it i see links to r.t. you'd have to be pretty special think it was a secret. serious stuff now there's controversy brewing over the imminent release of an american prisoner who spent more than four decades behind bars for the murder of three policeman helen bell is set to walk free on friday but new york's police union is making desperate attempts last ditch attempts to keep him locked up caleb maupin as the story. herman bell
11:40 pm
natori is for being a cop killer and a member of the black liberation army will soon become a free man after spending nearly fifty years behind bars for shooting policeman dead now the new york parole board's decision even had the support of a son of one of the slain officers it seems that individuals with no knowledge of ms to bellow the circumstances that led me to support his release many years ago have taken it upon themselves to drum up hate and then gins the parole board of new york might have shown sympathy and a willingness to forgive but not the policeman's union the patrolmen's benevolent association they're guilty then and they're guilty now and no copula should ever walk the face of the year now siding with the police's n.y.c. mayor bill de blasio who called for the decision to be reversed and for bell to stay behind bars the parole board received over three hundred sixty seven thousand letters urging them not to free herman bell despite his record as
11:41 pm
a model prisoner well not quite there and not actually that many individual messages the associations website gave compliance the option of automatically sending a letter for each of the sixty two cop killers listed on the site that meant that fewer than six thousand objections to bell's release generated over three hundred sixty seven thousand messages completely distorting the level of the outcry in fact according to one poll eighty six percent of new yorkers support the parole board's decision we decided to talk with some former cops about the associations ethics i can't comprehend a man who openly admitted to killing three cops. i can't comprehend how that person would be allowed to walk the streets i could picture every cop out there being absolutely outraged the point of acting on their motion especially in today's climate where there should be used to do your government is trying their back on the police officers i can absolutely picture now one. they're not wanting six
11:42 pm
hundred thousand plus letters being sent in a probe ordered to eb requesting this man's parole be denied manipulation that's quite a you know i mean. it's very tragic and he actually took three people to put perot's what it is you know we have murders rape is awesome this people to be in paroled every single day and. if you kill a cop they want you to just write and jail is supposed to be for people now cops like to talk about the perilous situations they put themselves in and the public that they serve in order to do that but this incident will leave some in new york questioning their integrity. r.t. new york. i'm kevin owen as ever for me in the t.v. remote so what should hold for a couple of days cut you next week to get all of these. covered one twenty three in the morning in mosco this is only friday now a programs continue in your part of the world that what after this break.
11:43 pm
was. was was. transformed policy could be described as doublespeak the president doesn't have a defined policy approach and even goals are difficult to discern is this what the
11:44 pm
art of the deal is trumps foreign policy making america great again the world safer . both the palestinians and israelis need. to give. in the usually dreams of getting revenge on the other we are staying here they're staying here and eventually we have to find ways of living side by side peacefully. you never know what's around the corner you never know what's in the pub even to walk into excitement it's that not knowing that's where the adrenalin much comes from. and you can use a move by definition an extreme so will probably support. the violence is
11:45 pm
a part and it's almost a schizophrenia gang culture where you can do all these things and behave badly. important people of course but of a lot. more so focused on the last. punishment and infirmed. role. in the start. of a broader way and not by figure out really did a poll down down went up a little bit. meaning in these images that if you don't involve these constantly evolving.

every day. so why. are throughout the whole world early. don't have to be family or tartan is cold and buy for cation not want again and buy for kids at three and i just checked it. and that actually has been medically proven to scottish men are less likely to get test takes like cancer and then potentially because they were killed because they get more airflow so if you want to kill your
11:50 pm
milk or to yes if you want a p.g. to make sure that kills have to be of a set and stand up and have a geographical origin and quality while up as man very articulate perfect why wearing right now would not classify as a p.j. traditional scotch comment denim machine made. denims from india so i want traditional scottish craftsmanship chops room and ship because i know very few male killed makers so when i want general my all which is why i'm not on or on my way the more i like them i'm dad's business i'm tucked away on to so straight they drove me crazy alex like literally really upset that someone could have the real mccoy kill ninety nine pylons. i count five. years so what you're saying is you want the same damn key of authenticity from the kill
11:51 pm
as for example scotch whiskey house to house absolutely because it drives me nuts that you can walk down the royal mile to see a kilt her name today in piles that they will say traditional kill is real mccoy i want three parameters to be able to call it kill with vishal scotch kill your will made in scotland hand-stitched that's why real kill to is otherwise the art form will die out what do you mean not formal diet well. my kill maker is one kill make one kill. the most kills are made in fact years. so that fire. the lady knows how to put straps on the guy knows how to do the plates but no one person knows how to make a kill or not kill thinkers. to kill their car to someone who says with yards of fabric works out to your personal size the fabric that i was going to fetch has one person one killed. eight to twelve hours of war like properly it's an
11:52 pm
art form and it's just going more and more as mass production fetching droplets don't look good. look. but i mean think things have happened to time i mean you know by when i was a lot in the in the seventy's if i timed up at a school dance and tough when i been taken to the toilet some probably unties if you go to a school dance at a wedding or a celebration you know everything buddy. so i mean there's been a transition of topping this time accepted as a m i five or was probably a. leader off he was the first guy to fit package but you could see what you were getting a price it was the first guy to rentals in the eighty's he was like a farce bastard of making the kill again more for everybody now reclaimed by the working classes i working class and less ok marcos expensive for like ten purchases
11:53 pm
so it was on safe funds a bit if you got. that money of kilts. well you become part of my own trade so as kind of a timeshare a celt like a jacket you buy a good jacket you can pass on to children so when i got this jock i said to my eight year old you're going to get his jacket thirty years so my kilts one hundred percent are early so highly you have died as you say helped to popularize that the kill reclaim it for the one class you had knocking on the evolution and all the radical. evolution of all of the kilt on top so how far a stretch to lose a stone going to know by three would be want to be. as for everyone to make kills for people every day you just walk into a shop where it be moscow new york london paris and they can buy a kilt and they would know it was authentic was scottish yeah that means calling
11:54 pm
design a skull and if you don't have a killing your words of man or woman then you're missing something important in life. beyond life choices beyond fashion kill. thousands of years old very devious gyptian sort of vikings for brought it to us. every coach or across the world has bifurcated garments soever be a sarong to see key african tribal wear so cross less so in a phrase the best days of the kill a story come oh gotcha absolutely thank you very much a big thank you legend me. from comedian hall for central park i'm on my way dime time to west fourteenth street to meet up paisley buddy alan lind has created an island for the curious and the see
11:55 pm
if in the state because if you go to new york community they're not a good it's the place to be. creative of norwood i know he saw conversation comes every hour to creativity in the middle of new york city granted you get this idea i love the idea of creating space for creative people say a home for the cutie and big melting point of. created we were from new york and around the world we have different affiliates but yeah it's just my background fighting are so is to create all my for the q.b. and people have to be cooler because you can end up here before you don't know or you're stuck on the table and you better get on there's nothing nicer than being thrown in to a situation. when it's about you sit in next to someone and having a conversation emphasize is obviously human then to change fate a good idea or are you some sort of antidote to the social media twitter revolution
11:56 pm
no i think we can take both then to the things that i think what i'm saying is we've got members from some of the biggest tech companies their members here because they want someone to come and sit and have a conversation with someone both have to be embraced we cannot be naive about technology but there is that other thing of that we do when i thoroughly communication paracel of communication with people and that's why you need a physical space you need a big silver you need to sit there and look at someone's eyes and say i hate you or i love you or whatever it is or i'm falling in love with you but right now you can make dating go online but you don't know nothin or the key is met or falling in love there are things that can be the new york and much much the way the feel reverse bliss but is it just a collection of after studying just after but you know i mean is it all is that no
11:57 pm
really it's not just artists because i mean a lot a lot when i was at the royal college of art and in the eighty's and this that two brothers came in and bought our you need to have commerce to be with us are you you're naive if you don't and i know so many great artists who are just not good at the financial side to start with the do you need to have the people ignored that money to make sure you can still carry on being an artist the old days of the one nine hundred century of living i gather in france lovely but then they die i mean it's all whole thing is the people we admire a lot of the time that vango or different people sylvia plath tortured artist that we love but they've amazed time you've got to accept both but this is a very well adored and gather new york. the finest in late myself. and some extraordinary i mean how much of the waltz was the most players know what goes on great to hear big deal simply obvious that there's a piece right up there that found in the street and it is the same composition of
11:58 pm
the francis bacon painting but it was on this street so the whole thing is you know what's what is good art i mean even something as different as original as this you must add some inspiration or another space another club you thought i do like to do that in new york and i'd like to do it better than special know it's my thirty eight with fawley it was stupid to see i took a leap of faith. and came to new york and just didn't know what i was doing i had a house and so i came across yeah i went right in the streets of new york raising money with a dream of building something unique senor. in july twenty second team hunted also to a freelance journalist working with
11:59 pm
a. militant showing in syria. only his second focus has established a memorial they will recognize will reporters who often risk the months with the sake of the truth comes through the news you can submit to your published works in a video written form go to a window on t.v. don't come into it now. look at the blockade in the animosity for fifty almost sixty years did it change the regime in cuba no the last administration realized that the majority of cuban americans wanted normalizations the normalised and when you normalize you can talk . and i want to tell you from my experience in cuba when the united states you sugar. instead of a hammer things change in cuba in the way that the united states wanted it to.
12:00 am
los angeles the city of luxury and fame but also an alarming number of people living in the streets. the simple fact in l.a. is there's just not enough shelter even if people on the streets right now decided to come in there's nowhere to come in and it's been a struggle. to get this man found his own response of the problem and constructed dozens of tiny homes for people in need of shelter when you have nothing and nowhere to go. you know having something like this may as well be a castle do the authorities accept such solution tiny house on a city parking space is not a solution you have to have someone monitoring the site otherwise it will be a free for all the news there a better alternative to end the homelessness crisis. scots
12:01 am
have a knack of blending in yes the coming part of the the fun of the infrastructure of whatever society they've gone into obviously here in the i think they simulate better they don't feel part of. as well saying that as much as the clan situation there is a whole thing in new york that is there was presbyterians who came here and german and it's hail in the haman it drives me crazy because i think we're much more creative than the type of thing i think that we actually get out there so whether it is the eighty's pop music of simple minds or all these other people who travel and make things happen the guy built the san francisco cable card system well that's going to make you whether it is the guys who then princeton university they came in just i think they didn't really think it's because the risk or fish i think
12:02 am
there is something in scotland though that mixes a bit adventurous maybe it's the bad weather i don't know that we want to go somewhere else for the never been wetherspoon and princeton was right adjective thing for the revolution he was right he was of the public in scotland brought and found it much easier to be a public of than a subpoena republic america but he did this he came out from scot not as a young man in the middle east and where for with a view of coming when was a college for trading place between the ministers and to the university to train the leadership of a new republic he came over for the agenda did you have an agenda not really but i guess my dogs actually my husband went to princeton and he's called wetherspoon princeton but that's one of their own agenda. again back during i said before wonderlust of warranting to go somewhere that we've all got it in the roots of
12:03 am
just somewhere that we want to go to and nobody knows what is i had an aunt who lived in dumbarton share in a cottage up a hero and claim her husband dies all she said was i want to go to petra and we were like really competitor i've always wanted to i don't know why sometimes it is that thing that you just want to go somewhere not to run away i mean there's people who have been disenfranchised who came to america the people who have been forced to come to america let the slave trade but a lot of people tend to fall of the sun sometimes if you look at immigration we emigrated immigrated immigrated all the way across in the most scots that came to america are in california that's the highest level of scottish people so there must have been just kept looking kept looking kept looking and the thought of fine. past
12:04 am
your tenth anniversary and eventually this year when it will be a start of the will do you know will get ten years and at least the general think you get these are the we oughtn't just the big financial thing. and it was tough it was really tough job and i didn't take a wait for a long time just to keep goring. i was going to give up. i just wanted to just keep going and of course lay in the years past and all the sudden it's your tenth anniversary and for the tenth anniversary we got what before our system suzy nickel to. holst some of the greatest scottish painters in so we've got curry we've go joan burton we've go. so we want to see the bell and the bell and john bell and a lovely man got dressed as so there's a great peace up stairs be talked about
12:05 am
a million we're if you look at the moon on different continents you're connected so yes so we did that for her next year it's all. we've already found someone who's of . photography gallery person who's doing that then the following year actually is the guy who painted this who just did the exhibition with mice running underneath it joe grushecky and it's cold on juno so we're going to do cutting edge for that year so it's not about being a. a museum or. hall made to scotland it was this year slightly self-indulgent. but we're international well this is very much an international school but you go all shapes and sizes all nationalities come here but i know you do your bit for scotland week and what sort of event as the club posted in the past and what did you think of k.t. tunstall b. live first woman marshall of the played this year what took them so long.
12:06 am
i mean right now i mean with all what's happening in the world and me to all that is let women are just rising and i just applaud that is like they're taking over and i'm quite happy but that. with scotland week we've done we work a lot with the scottish government i mean this time last year. nicholas searchin was over she came here the royal scottish ballet did a form of in this room just two people and it was beautiful just means that we've done things with ryan burns who's jared byrne. the famous painter of the on the sure that the song many great scott i mean this one. there's not so many scottish people that i would love to even push forward and let america see them so whatever happens in scotland we i just don't want scotland again to be too rector
12:07 am
specter of what is to be forward and who's shooting so that creativity and those we've discussed before about how scots tend to assimilate but sometimes that a wee bit shy they are ability. they're very quiet about that and some time use and the heart to create yes exactly this building itself is pretty special i mean even by new york standards this is a quaint it was only one model building is. to have lingered scottish there's a plaque downstairs that was built in one thousand forty five to four is seven by andrew norwood this was the top end of the city our garden wall was farmland after that and ignored built the house thought if it was a two houses next door this the area was also known as little spain and lorca used
12:08 am
to write in the rest of the store which is the oldest spanish restaurant in new york national so it has fourteen streets the widest street in manhattan every single subway line goes through here. klein and jackson pollock lived across the road the guy invented the israel but lived there bit one in the suit was the unions of the year so that's why you have a union square so the thing and then the other end was the poor so that was where air all the prostitutes were and then it became the transvestites in the eighty's and then the land the bar so it's got this and i think cities should have that dark and light and she because it makes them more exciting so much now has been marginalized and pushed down and not risky and volbeat into that late night bar somewhere where you knock on the door and you go in and
12:09 am
it's magical and it's a real brigadoon of an experience once every one seven hundred but that's why we've got no name on the door there's no signage and people have to find does this so if you are going to. be. to an event or a party or a keeley that where excessive or some something with just a. wonderful and surprising that i don't think i can see the sunlight there's been many there's been many plans for their charity is a sure yes we don't never say who are members are and we are winning actors and we've got major major writers but we weren't there all the same your members so that members can spend if you're. already that's up to them i never i don't know. of so but that's the thing is because the just think that an actor is a job they want to be able to come in certain have
12:10 am
a cup of coffee and not be pestered or have a drink and get drunk with their friends they all are to me evidence of the same ability that means so respect and that even goes to my staff my staff or ex than servers and they're writers and musicians and some day they may be these people's bosses but they're part of my group because i've been there serving people and i think it's very important that you respect the staff and we respect our members but there's no hierarchy there's no. clicking of the finger. or surprising success. very unique atmosphere. are you going to spread your wings for the son of norwood in san francisco no i've been i spent a year and a half flying back and forward to los angeles recently and they really tried to court me to go there when i got there it was but it was a bit like watching
12:11 am
a foreign moving reading the subtitles and looking at the movie and reading the subtitles didn't click. for me i think even like london and new york are more i'm a walking person i love passing people in the street i didn't really get i'm not the healthiest person in the world so unlike surfer but even if i did when i was i wouldn't take norwood to new york i'd go to a not new york to l.a. i would go to l.a. and create a club for them. not just to modernize and copy something and put it somewhere else but go all the or actually find a wonderful building which was howard hughes is office and i said can i get the roof and they said what do you mean i said because i wanted to build this police. rooftop garden that people could go into not create something like this which is a give them that air and space and based on almost like japanese we could gotten
12:12 am
close doors to be so that was that if you decide to build something else or so when you're from paisley and it was basically talk of paisley's idea is as good. i don't know what we are no one ever cocktails is the jimi which we invented and basically because it's made with hendrix hendrix as you know comes from garvin and all the reps ever want to put scotland on going at what could go i don't want to do given when i lived in paisley i'd have been happy going to know the nice fellow i'm a scream but anyways so is jimmy because jimi hendrix and people in scotland call themselves a germy and it's personally more to cucumber with hendrix gin and a bit of simple and that's how the female head the style of one of the few disciplined. people had the story but though i want it just as we were with and i
12:13 am
want to scotch one rouble the bonnet that is not compulsory for people visit. but i was in glasgow at lax we ever know and then i realise it's probably because of it all it's where our heroes growing and so we can still grow these but. so yeah so i don't know why i have a wonderful for all of my grandfather and the shipyards and everything. one of them but it's we having a ball in it like this and when the ship was launched the bullets went up and then i always wondered how you ever got your bunnet by same of football much is something they would like to asian as well as things but yeah checkers to go in with cheap want to come up with a deal if you can catch a deal when coming. here as india or dealers in the year tell you let's laugh tracks and that wasn't they were going out and we can play those can give them
12:14 am
a lot of money oh but what kind of year is the simon quid for being here that are you know the saddle you know it same and paisley is stuck it stuck the whisky in the quicken only of course friends thank you very much and thank you so much thank you thank. you robert barnes sitting here behind me in a plane for peterhead get on it was much impressed by the tie ins of the declaration of arbroath sealed in the sixth of april theft hundred twenty not just scotland right to independence but the idea that the community of the realm of scotland should choose a king they decided to defend their rights it was therefore the the world's forced expression of popular sovereignty the idea of the sovereignty of the people. that still defend scottish party to some which would boil along there after the floodgates of life shut in a town the rest some twenty years ago american historians recognise the contribution and the connection between scotland's declaration of broth and
12:15 am
america's declaration of independence centuries later on george w. bush's press that one of his better decisions and not going to the sex the fable cotton the to celebrate that connection and over the centuries scotland has contributed much to the republic scientists inventors entrepreneurs like i'm the committee after slike in law and perhaps the most significant thing of all was the concept of the democratic intellect the idea the government of by and for the people. shall not perish from the face of this. coming up in next week's show and from some magic about the radical forces m d a stylish meant one thing in common they're both fun now by the presidency so as i'm going to be changing there cannot be a counter revolution from the left i will hope that washington establishment get back in the driver's seat and i speak to a pulitzer prize winning journalist and one of washington's key commentators their
12:16 am
very different views over the state of politics and public. transform policy could be described as double speak the president doesn't have a defined policy approach goals are difficult to discern is this what the art of the deal is transform policy making america great again safer.

elliston is getting international recognition with the help of israel at least in the world of zoos remember wolf it off to finish it to do it loving you like a million leases and my compass appears i'm going out the door sunday holiday or they're all shot without a telescope or they should be the only palestinians who gets the most hopeful is jerusalem counterpart i don't think there's some of those who endure under the local version the only group that is a player and that is unfair advantage to others like any of the mossad which they are i don't want to go game it doesn't seem to do more than a most awesome don't but there's often. a batch or sudden passing i've only just learned you worry yourself in taking your last bang turn. your attitude up to you as we all knew it would i tell you i'm
12:18 am
sorry i could so i write these last words in hopes to put to rest these things that i never got off my chest. i remember when we first met my life turned on each breath. but then my feeling started to change you talked about war like it was again still some more fond of you those that didn't like to question our arc and i secretly promised to never be like it said one does not leave a funeral the same as one enters the mind gets consumed with the death of this one different person to speak to now because there are no other takers. to claim that mainstream media has met its maker. you never know what's around the corner you never know what's in the pub you going

to walk into excitement it's that knowledge that's where the adrenalin rush comes from. and you can use a move by definition and extreme cruelty and. violence is a part and it's almost a schizophrenia. where you can do all these things and behave like. you're born with all of this colorful all for the pope and what was more so for the last. one this man and for him the war policy in the. older brother where no piper you out really did a poll that now went up with a good. meaning in islam is that belief if you don't believe involves it's constantly evolving the.

facts was. a development from the hague on the alleged chemical attack in the syrian town of dumas with russia inviting local witnesses to testify the incident was staged. in another level we are in the basement and then heard someone outside scream go to hospital we were scared they started to pour water on me i don't know why they did this of on the finance professionals we saw that there were no symptoms suggesting chemical weapons had been used to. pressure mounts on cats are from its regional rivals amid claims the dubai based company commissioned a film linking the gulf state to terrorism to justify sanctions. and not even a dollar facebook's technology chief tells profusion of these that moscow spending
12:21 am
on adverts during the preps that vote totals just ninety seven cents. this is r.t. international coming to you live from moscow i'm kate partridge thank you for joining us. local doctors in syria say they've seen no one with symptoms of chemical poisoning in the aftermath of the alleged attack on the town of tomorrow on april the seventh witnesses explained how events unfolded to the un backed chemical watchdog alongside russia's representative r.t.s. peter oliver has the details. well russia's main representative russia's permanent representative to the o p c w alexander surely again he was an equivocal in what he had to say he described the incident that took place in duma on the seventh of
12:22 am
april a slot police staged a chemical attack saying that the blame lay with the likes of the united states france and the united kingdom for actually carrying out the staging of that now he was also backed up in the statements by the syrian representative to the o p c w and was then later followed by a series of different witnesses who were on the scene in june but that time no one of those and perhaps the most profound of those was eleven year old son the op he was one of those people who was prominently featured in in videos of the alleged chemical attack he described a very different scene in that they have a. we were in the basement and then heard someone outside scream go to hospital we were scared they started to pour water on me i don't know why they did this.
12:23 am
do you remember where it happened to me right here. and there is it. here it is. then they poured water on me they put me here and then took me upstairs to my mother. and that's mean the video that's mean. yes it was a long press conference it was a very detailed press conference they they also brought up to the stage a number of doctors who'd been on duty in the hospital at the time they went into times excruciating detail about what they saw and what they didn't see on that day
12:24 am
on the seventh of april in fact some doctors saying that although they treat people for this fix the ation for problems with breathing they didn't treat people with the symptoms that you would associate with a chemical poisoning. on the seventh of april i was in the emergency room treating patients injured during the fighting the same day around seven pm we started receiving patients with breathing problems about fifteen cases this happened because people were in hailing smoke and dust they only shows symptoms of choking and nothing more it all happened because one missile hit a building nearby and a lot of dust got into the hospital rooms people had injuries they had trouble breathing but we had patients like that arriving all the time and the screams chemical weapons chemical weapons were used to create panic this lasted for about an hour we were treating the patients and sending them home and we had
12:25 am
a great talent sees all instances of people suffering from poisonous substances so certainly far more questions are being raised following this press conference that have been announced that well as he heard from the u.k.'s former ambassador to syria peter ford and middle east expert our walk off they believe the evidence matters little to western governments. well. either ignored or attempts will be made. on the mind it in fact is it can really only way but i think when ordinary people. really. abound. in fact anybody with half a brain could see that these are credible witnesses they refused to see this as evidence obviously pending what the o.p.c. double team is going to come up with from you it's highly unlikely that they would say first of all that there was
12:26 am
a chemical attack while these three actors were quick to do what they did to bomb the place because they knew they didn't have a solid case they wanted to bomb with with disregard to whatever was happening over there so it shows actually that they knew that there was no chemical attack but they were willing to do whatever it takes us or there are forty or so they think and so we're seeing them because. it's been revealed the dubai based company hired a top p.r. executive to produce a film linking cattle with terrorism a report from the bureau investigative journalism also claims propaganda material was created for the pentagon with more his r.t.s. what afghans here there's no propaganda quite like military propaganda psychological operations that these psyops serious stuff aside from mere unlimited money you also don't have to deal with all those annoying ethical restrictions i
12:27 am
just assumed it was news gathering. back and seeing the process and worked in the process of them realize this is a big project so we would do the news items that would go out on the news and around various channels locally and we were to make it as best we could look. as if it was made locally belled part injure specialized didn't military grade propaganda the british p.r. firm was active in iraq for years to the us commander there they did crazy stuff faked local news reports smeared iran put together al qaida propaganda videos planted them in people's homes and tracked who viewed them i was asked by my boss. we need to make this style of video. and we've got to use it is footage and all their propaganda to it and we're going to track of our google analytics

good times last year bellport injure lost its license after it emerged that it likely stalked racial tensions in south africa as part of its work their thing with having morals is once you lose them it's difficult to pick them up again but i digress guess what belled porton just former boss is up to the biggest diplomatic crisis in the middle east since the first gulf war a growing diplomatic crisis that qatar seems to be in crisis as more middle eastern countries sever diplomatic ties with saudi arabia bahrain egypt and the u.a.e. have all cut diplomatic ties with cut up you know the whole cat saudi arabia schism where the two u.s. allies almost came to blows here that was helped by charles and dreher the man who oversaw bellport injures operations in iraq propagandist extraordinary

financial and logistical support for terrorists and terrorism groups like hamas the taliban and al qaida who operate freely out of doha and use business and financial institutions to support radical islam. and global jihad. mr own dreher was paid handsomely by a dubai based company to smear qatar tire to terrorists to iran to tell everyone how bad and dirty it is using the iraqi formula anywhere where some radical islamism is operational. significant operation going to be fine but. these documentary really isn't became available on netflix you tube it was sure to trump's former chief strategist steve ballmer and former cia director david petraeus ex defense secretary leon panetta just
12:30 am
to make it clear foreign money gulf arab money used to make a fake propaganda film by professionals and then shown to millions shown to some of america's most influential figures to promote international conflict on figg grounds this is psyops the big time league of propaganda so far the film production company andrei i understand see it's as well as the dubai based miscommunications have said they won't comment while the film was released last summer when gulf states constantly massive trade and transport times with cats are accusing it of supporting terrorism this is something doha has repeatedly denied then the u.s. president had sided with the arab nations saying cattle had a history of funding terror as a very high level saudi arabia took the lead in the isolation campaign which while
12:31 am
the kingdom's foreign minister is now warning the qatari government it could collapse if it doesn't support washington's military operations in the middle east . qatar should finance the u.s. military's presence in syria and send its own military forces there before the u.s. president lifts american protection for qatar if the u.s. is to withdraw its protection represented by its military base in guitar then the regime there will fall within less than a week or the saudi foreign minister was referring to the presence of over eleven thousand u.s. troops in qatar he made the remarks after donald trump called for money underground supporting syria from wealthy u.s. allies in the middle east however security on this charge bridge believes it's the saudi shoe should be concerned about their friendship with washington. it's using this issue as a stick to beat the top and of course qatar has used its considerable wealth to attack for example in propaganda term saudi arabia both countries have been
12:32 am
uncomfortable allies for some time said that by backing the syrian rebellion of course in this particular instance saudi arabia knows that qatar is not in a position to physically provide troops on the ground simply because its armed forces are small but of course they would like to see qatar finances further trained it's interesting donald trump's remarks and self has said that without us in other words without the americans those countries before within hours or weeks of something like this and said this is a truce that is very rarely spoken publicly and they want to get deflect attention onto one another. facebook has had another grilling from lawmakers this time in the u.k. the social media giant has been taken to task by m.p.'s over the platform's handling of people's private data it was also questioned russian online activity around the time of the brics it vote an associate reports russian brock's it could

the first time one attempts to connect the dots between russia's use of social media and brags that have failed just previously we know that facebook said that they have found that russia had spent less than a dollar on any odds related to bret's and even when this committee traveled all the way to washington to get more answers that did not produce very much we looked at all advertisements with any connection to russia and we found no evidence of our services being used to interfere in the referendum a very small number of suspects it's not research agency link accounts forty nine such accounts were active during the campaign which represents less than point some of the total number of accounts these are very low level things until we completed this investigates we won't know but what we haven't had this. information that's enabled those to tug on a particular page or a particular phenomenon. an american broadcaster has uncovered the shocking

revelation that programs are produced by our teeth were not after the break. they claim is a black hole and it is sucking up some walks of life and money from all points on the globe and as it expands it just a war of the size of everything else trying to keep with it that includes various b.s. money regimes it also includes very high level bankers and economists so christine legarde is just the latest to get. to the big calling black hole. look at the blockade and the animosity for fifty almost sixty years did it change the regime in cuba no the last administration realized that the majority of cuban

shows offices wrestling her to the ground two weeks ago there was another case of a starbucks in for the delphia star called the police some to want men because they happen to place an order i wanted to use the restroom. away from fountain races and tell us. right all right john ok i didn't want to die that. i. take a call and response to see other stocks overall coffeehouses to close the mandatory anti-racism training following a nationwide campaign against the company for more reaction on this and he spoke with economist and perkins and human rights activist randy short. racism against situations is real and the prejudice is real but we need to care about america as well as an entire society and look after everyone if we don't do this we're going to have worse problems i have enormous difficulty accepting the idea that this

young lady trying to run her starbucks in philadelphia spends time thinking about class and segregation and trying to target black people that she's trying to run the restaurants and she's trying to do it. in order and keep the business working and not let people take advantage of are you guys loitering and not purchasing products from the store while using their facilities how do you stop that from happening again but i don't think that little girl running the starbucks as best she can reluctantly calling the police to sign saying saying loitering again is thinking about using loitering laws against black people yes there are people that have a literate and businesses yes there are folks out of water some of them of black but i've worked. it's a lot of white drunks in my day and they don't get handled quite the same way this is a threat i'm not going to last october or early or lanolin play later slowly than men and then five women together play very slowly and the entire culture is waiting for

the fact that has nothing to do with it it's the fact that they are so low as a long ass people pretend that injustice and mistreatment of people is ok as long as it does not impact yeah that is the problem with the majority it they lack an understanding that it can be us today and it could be them tomorrow now this is where i asked myself the question at what point do you treat black people like ordinary people and subject them to ordinary rules of society at what point do you stop taking every incident as racism and started valuating them as human beings and how they're reacting that's my question to you. american broadcaster n.b.c. has discovered artie's online series in case you missed it is in fact linked to off an exposé article the journalists say they look to the registration data of the show's website and cross checked it against the registration for r.t.
12:40 am
well they could have saved themselves the trouble if i'd just gone to the web site r.t. dot com and clicked on shows where they did found it at the top in response to n.b.c. scoop in case you missed it has taken us behind the scenes to blow the lid off its connection to r.t. . so here we are first look offices although there is a slight smell in the air the vodka and caviar. were in so it is probably a spy i keep an eye on it. but first glance it looks like any other office but take a look below the surface and something starts to seem off we spoke to i see why in my eyes members of staff so tell me what's it like working for someone connected to r.t. . well i always loved the topless game show tutti frutti when i was at school. here you could get a schoolboy right but that was that was on the sky channel r.t.l.
12:41 am
this is this is r.t. this is this is funded by russia we're talking about well i mean r.t. is funded by russia. for the russians well. yeah i mean if your parents is mainly just one in stuff over to poly and things like that to be honest i've never really had so much freedom at work no one tells you how to answer for over and i'm just really happy but do you work alone i mean do not you know really something i like to talk about. i have total freedom to story look to as long as it takes to move to for sure. it's fantastic for. limited supply. on a good can prove records. and i've just heard that the host of the show polly boyko has just arrived at work so let's see if we can get
12:42 am
a word with her miss bordereau. was like oh hi you are aware that i see why my is funded by the russian state through r.t. want you. all. yes that way yeah yeah i got the email yeah. i've just got to take this inside thank you so that we have it i see links to r.t. you'd have to be pretty special to think it was a secret. well meanwhile controversy is brewing in the u.s. over the imminent release of a prisoner who spent more than four decades behind bars for the murder of three policemen have been bell is set to walk free on friday but new york's police union has been making a desperate last ditch attempt to keep him locked up artie's kellett morgan has more. herman bell natori is for being a cop killer and a member of the black liberation army will soon become
12:43 am
a free man after spending nearly fifty years behind bars for shooting policeman dead now the new york parole board's decision even had the support of a son of one of the slain officers it seems that individuals with no knowledge of ms to bellow the circumstances that led me to support his release many years ago have taken it upon themselves to drum up hate and then gins the parole board of new york might have shown sympathy and a willingness to forgive but not the policemen's union the patrolmen's benevolent association they're guilty then and the guilty now and no copula should ever walk the face of the year now siding with the police's n.y.c. mayor bill de blasio who called for the decision to be reversed and for bell to stay behind bars the parole board received over three hundred sixty seven thousand letters urging them not to free herman bell despite his record as a model prisoner well not quite there and not actually that many individual
12:44 am
messages the associations website gave compliance the option of automatically sending a letter for each of the sixty two cop killers listed on the site that meant that fewer than six thousand objections to bell's release generated over three hundred sixty seven thousand messages completely distorting the level of the outcry in fact according to one poll eighty six percent of new yorkers support the parole board's decision we decided to talk with some former cops about the associations ethics i can't comprehend a man who openly admitted to killing three cops. i can't comprehend how that person would be allowed to walk the streets i could picture every cop out there being absolutely outraged the point of acting on their motion especially in today's climate where there should be used to do your government is trying their back on the police officers i can absolutely picture now one. about there not wanting six hundred thousand plus letters being sent to the pro board to eb requesting this

12:57 am
and moving to markets and more from a week ago although from tuesday we saw the dow down five days in a row and that had taken place since march of last year twenty seventeen nasdaq also had four down days and on tuesday we saw a massive sell off in the u.s. and u.s. markets and things seem to have been back on track although these market moves are pretty tough to predict earlier i spoke with name a slum who joined us from lithuania i asked him about markets the ongoing trade war and china and leadership changes at deutsche bank plus kryptos name says because it is a crypto religion index check it out. james thanks for being with us again we sure appreciate what you think's going on thanks for having me as always what is going on is basically a trump rally in the equity market is deflating that's pretty much it because that optimism. around the investment community that has faded all together its
12:58 am
policies now it's the policies of the federal reserve which are making and the impact because all of us said and now the market is waking up to face entire concept that ok higher interest rates are going to have an impact on the corporate earnings and we know that the corporate things are pretty much still strong the i'm not weak by any money you have because we're still. seeing the street estimate but i think now they can sense that coming out that ok the higher interest rates the fans won't be able to go back and start doing that or that they share buyback program at a lower cost than they've been in so many different ways and less law to look at by what trump is do or his policies. and how they are impacting at vastly not positively now they have a more adverse impact on the market but in general i don't want to see. a message community out that i still think that the u.s. is that really strong market in all the tab i think we are entering in that bear
12:59 am
market territory we already have and i think this could continue throughout this that this because of the may some of it over the next three to four months so let me ask you i mean do you think there is some residual resonance in markets outside of the u.s. from the u.s. from president trump's policy isn't what he's talking about and while you're at it go ahead and comment on the continuing trade war that we seem to be engaged in. b.s.p. show i think trade for is just nothing but it is us and no it couldn't you it literally mean that and now the biggest problem is that when you see that are you writing to three percent and say you know what we have balancing that one everyone is thinking ok if these trade tyree of say if they get it going to impact the g.d.p. of china and if you look at the debt to g.d.p. ratio over a china that has just gone one way six forty two at the up side and these
1:00 am
terrorists with a trade war is going to have an more advice impact on that and china is one of the biggest drop treasuries to what that would happen so i think again the i.m.f. warning today in relation to that is very important and investors are paying attention so tariffs trade was nothing is good when it comes to got to. you know we have seen some e.u. banks reporting their q one earnings in the last several days in particular barclays in santa and there but let's talk about a major changing of the guard at deutsche bank germany's largest lender which has seen three years of straight losses and their share price has fallen by roughly twenty five percent this year alone the previous c.e.o. john cryan is out and christian center when the former bank code deputy is in what do you think mr sharing this experience will bring he's come from the research
1:01 am
retail side of the banking endeavor there is he going to help d.b. get out of their problems. i think we've seen this story over and over in the banking and we don't have to go too far we can just look at what happened with. the pretty much the same story happening or that i think the news the city is going to look at the entire cost structure and he's going to say i'm not getting much benefit in these so it's time for me to pull out of these markets and we're going to focus more on the call center remember he's a guy as you correctly mention is coming within the countries that he doesn't understand the company very well but mike and is that yes the talk is all the internal people but they also need the knowledge from someone external so we kind of a lag the last thing but in terms of a value play or invest i think there is a lot of value with the n.b.a. because there's still a strong company forget about the twenty five or the satellite all how long we are
1:02 am
on the i think. it's a strong buy it's a very good buy you especially many other investment banks. very interesting before we go let's move to crypto you are one of the few people and i appreciate it that our look at markets but are also willing not just talk about equities but talk about kryptos so how are they doing i know as you are pretty positive recently on on ripple where do you see ripple and bitcoin for example headed in the not too distant future. thank you appreciate that i would say that if you understand the technology base coin as i said in my last article is the religion right so it has a massive move to get to as the site i do not think that the recent satellite shoots scare in masses of i think the recent salazar is creating an opportunity
1:03 am
even if you look at the o.t.c. boiling in if you see that the in the developer community they are very happy to buy at a discount rate of more than sixty six or sixty seven percent but we have come a long way from five thousand nine hundred so back to you know testing that ten thousand and i'm going to put an article very shortly on that one with respect to report if we see and the bull wrong in the critical market yes big corn is that related but ripple would count higher rate than watt because ripple is something that anyone can everyone can come up with can call and then they can participate that bit coin you have to have a bigger pocket you have to dig deep inside that so big point was stay at them as an index yes i said it as an index so that's that's the concept that's the religion i will say but i think in terms of any restaurant revoke it sad to see that and the
1:04 am
team is doing incredible job in terms of integration i've been to many of their parties over in asia and met several different country managers where they are working with the regional banks to create the integration. very interesting you know and it seems to me that you know you have if if bitcoin takes off than you know other currencies like ripple and others like coin a theory and will probably follow suit i wonder whether or not there would be one of the crypt those. would go ahead and break out of the box separate from bitcoin but we're going to have to leave that for another time i hope you'll come back to talk kryptos for a whole segment name a slum the chief market analyst at think markets thank you so much for being with us. thank you for having me. and time now for a quick pause for the promotional cause but hang here because when we return rick rule the president and c.e.o. of straught u.s.

continent now financial crimes investigators are trying to determine if havasu agile ad agency which controls effectively contributed to the election campaigns of presidents of togo and guinea by under billing them for services in exchange for port management contracts with the ball or a company. and here's the natural gas and more is rick rule of sprott us holdings rick thank you for being with us the federal energy regulatory commission has decided to investigate whether or not it needs to update its pipeline approval policies as we all know pipelines like dakota access have been met with some criticism and justifiable in my view if you happen to do something like you know live there but do you think the first policies need any update. i do i think it's good that a large american bureaucracy at least feels the need to review its status and
1:09 am
its point of view particularly in an industry that is a as important as natural gas and be one that has changed as much as natural gas has in the last ten years so i applaud furred for at least their efforts at introspection yeah well you don't find that in government too often so i agree with you a good thing to look even if they don't change i think there probably are some changes needed nat gas as you say it's an important component of our energy portfolio about a little over a third now last i heard but what do you what do we export and what do we import in the way of natural gas well i think on a net basis we're a net exporter there are parts of the country as an example the u.s. northwest where it's still efficacious to import canadian gas the prior big u.s. import market was of course the u.s. northeast but the advent of production from the marcellus shale is meant that the
1:10 am
big has meant that the biggest importing region of the united states has in fact developed a gas surpluses it internally so on a net basis on a balance basis we are a gas exporter in addition to that increasingly we are using low priced natural gas to produce products at home things like basic chemicals that are produced from hydrocarbons natural gas and in addition to exporting raw gas and compressed natural gas we are beginning to export commodity commodity products that are made from our own domestic natural gas. rick can you give us just a brief summary of what's going on in markets today. sure with the cabbie out that there isn't one broad market the natural gas market is a global market made up of many small markets but in a broad sense there are
1:11 am
a couple things that are important the first is probably that the shale revolution on a global basis but mostly in the u.s. has meant that prior concerns about a scarcity of natural gas have disappeared so people are less afraid to use natural gas in industrial and power generating processes that's the most important thing that's happened second thing in dogwood keep. an i'm sorry keep going i'm sorry second thing yeah the second most important thing at least from my point of view has been that the increase in alternative energy technologies primarily wind and solar while it's attractive is intermittent and the ability to use natural gas to generate electricity during periods of time when the sun doesn't shine as an example or the wind doesn't blow is the only thing that makes those alternative energy technologies really appropriate to a broad based grid and the advent of. alternative
1:12 am
energy sources has really been made possible by natural gas the third is of course natural gas as a substitute for things like coal and thermal oil in a lower carbon environment but the truth is it would seem that industrial applications of gas have come into really perfect harmony with the new technologies that are increasing beat of the ill ability of it. rick we thank you so much for your time that's rick will of sprott us holdings we hope you'll come back. there's been a move back to rural america after a decade of population growth to urban areas particularly to sun belt states some long declining small towns and farming and manufacturing counties are heating up and adding people as population growth in large cities cools according to census estimates but where are the people in rural america living here discusses debbie
1:13 am
boyd a mortgage specialist and c.e.o. of deal b. financial services we thank you so much for joining us again your time with some steady improvements in world economies and rural counties gaining population for the first time since two thousand and some city folks are headed back to the country less populated areas given the recovering housing markets what will would be homebuyers find in rural america well they're going to find a much better product much more affordable housing why don't side the city limits there's also a lot of loan programs u.s.d.a. is a great big loan program that actually has one hundred percent financing that means the buyers don't have to put any money down if they meet certain requirements and the main requirement is to be in the county areas so it gives a rural population somewhere to go the inner cities are getting so expensive there we having a lot of the older neighborhoods it's just too expensive for first time homebuyers and like you say it's really the it's the it's the counties that are contingent to
1:14 am
those large area counties u.s.t.a. used to work work there and it's counties with populations below ten thousand and so it's those sort of collar counties right what are some of the hot spots are around the country. well you know there are so many especially and texas you know we have the equivalent of a seven forty seven landing in d.f.w. airport and everybody in that plane is moving to dallas every single day so that's a lot of people dallas city proper doesn't have room for that so it's the area's it's the sheilas bedford it's the las colinas area that used to be rural america that's now just like the city there is no difference there just a sign separating it it's all highways it's all new housing areas great vine area north of dallas is just the metroplex has blown up and so is houston so is austin a lot of people want to come to texas it's our environment down here you know so much expansion around the world in the u.s.
1:15 am
it's exciting to see all of the businesses and shopping growing and everything it's a pretty amazing how about markets housing markets in general debby we see interest rates going up the fed just increased rates we expect maybe two or three other rate increases this year are our home buyers saying they've got to buy now are they still waiting around. the only ones that are really raging around are the ones that are trying to get their qualifying in order they've got to lowered their debt pay off some credit cards you know people still carry a lot of debt on credit cards or student loans are killing a lot of our first time homebuyers so you know they're the ones that are waiting everybody wants to move now the problem is there's a shortage of homes that are in that early first time home buyer area and that doesn't give them a lot of choices that pushes them out of the suburbs but people want to buy now the best deals though are not now the best deals are going to be in the fall in the winter of next year what doesn't sell over the summer but then your interest rates
1:16 am
are going to be more so my suggestion is buy now find a home now get settled move in and get on with your life the rates are only going to go higher and as far as prices you talked about the fall being maybe a better time is that the case all across the country because of school or is it less so perhaps in areas where you are in the sun belt states. now i think it's everywhere so if you have school or age children you know school starts the beginning of september end of august all across the country and those people need to be settled so people that are taking job transfers they're going to be moving in the summer and they've got to get the kids ready to go to school you don't want to start the school year after it starts if you can help from it just easier on the family and the kids so i'll a lot of that movement but whatever doesn't sell in the summertime months are going to be sitting there on the market then september through next march when the market starts again so that's when you can get a lot of people people have to leave with their jobs and move to a new city some people are taking to house payments on it that part of the their

1:21 am
thank you for watching the news headlines here at r.t. international broadcasting live from moscow. local doctors in syria say they've seen no one with symptoms of chemical poisoning in the aftermath of the alleged attack in the town of duma on april the seventh witnesses explained how events unfolded to the un backed chemical watchdog alongside russia's representative peter oliver has the details. well russia's main representative russia's permanent representative to the o p c w alexander surely again he was an equivocal in what he had to say he described the incident that took place in duma
1:22 am
on the seventh of april a slot police staged a chemical attack saying that the blame lay with the likes of the united states france and the united kingdom for actually carrying out the staging of that now he was also backed up in the statement by the syrian representative to the o p c w and was then later followed by a series of different witnesses who were on the scene in dubai telling no one of those and perhaps the most profound of those was eleven year old son the op he was one of those people that was prominently featured in in videos of the alleged chemical attack he described a very different scene in that. we were in the basement and then heard someone outside scream go to hospital we were scared they started to pour water on me i don't know why they did this.
1:23 am
do you remember where it happened. right here. there is it. here it is. and then they poured water on me they put me here and then took me upstairs to my mother. and i that's mean the video that's mean. yes it was a long press conference it was a very detailed press conference they they also brought up to the stage a number of doctors who'd been on duty in the hospital at the time they went into
1:24 am
at times excruciating detail about what they saw and what they didn't see on that day on the seventh of april in fact some doctors saying that although they trade people for this fix the ation for problems with breathing they didn't treat people with the symptoms that you would associate with a chemical poisoning. on the seventh of april i was in the emergency room treating patients injured during the fighting the same day around seven pm we started receiving patients with breathing problems about fifteen cases this happened because people were in hailing smoke and dust they only showed symptoms of choking and nothing more it all happened because one missile hit a building nearby and a lot of does go into the hospital rooms people had injuries they had trouble breathing but we had patients like that arriving all the time and the screams chemical weapons chemical weapons we used to create panic this lasted for about an hour we were treating the patients and sending them home and we had no freights how
1:25 am
it sees or instances of people suffering from poisonous substances so certainly far more questions are being raised following this press conference that have been announced that. well r.t. heard from the u.k.'s former ambassador to syria peter ford and middle east expert . they believe the evidence matters little to western governments. either ignored or attempts will be made. on the mind it in fact if it came already on the way but i think when ordinary people. are going to be. bound impressed and in fact anybody with half a brain could see that these are credible witnesses they refused to see this as evidence obviously pending what the o.p.c. w team is going to come up with from it's highly unlikely that they would say first
1:26 am
of all that there was a chemical attack while these three actors were quick to do what they did to bomb the place because they knew they didn't have a solid case they wanted to bomb without with disregard to whatever was happening over there so it shows actually that they knew that there was no chemical attack but they were willing to do whatever it takes to assert their authority or so they think and say we're still on the table. it's been revealed a dubai based company hired a top pay our executives to produce a film linking qatar with terrorism a report from the bureau of investigative journalism also claims propaganda material was created for the pentagon there's more his artie's more than just the of. there's no propaganda quite like military propaganda psychological operations that these psyops serious stuff aside from near unlimited money you also don't have to deal with all those annoying ethical restrictions on
1:27 am
tissues newsgathering. but having seen the process and worked in the process of them realize this is a big project so we would do the news items that would go out on the news and or on various channels locally and we were to make it his best we could look as if it was made locally belled part to injure specialized didn't military grade propaganda the british p.r. firm was active in iraq for years to the us commander there they did crazy stuff faked local news reports smeared iran put together al qaida propaganda videos planted them in people's homes and tracked who viewed them i was asked by my boss. we need to make this style of video. and we've got to use it is footage
1:28 am
and all their propaganda to it and we're going to track of our google analytics good times last year bellport injure lost its license after it emerged that it likely stalked racial tensions in south africa as part of its work their thing with having morals is once you lose them it's difficult to pick them up again but i digress guess what bellport and just former boss is up to the biggest diplomatic crisis in the middle east since the first gulf war a growing diplomatic crisis of qatar seems to be in crisis as more middle eastern countries sever diplomatic ties with saudi arabia bahrain egypt and the u.a.e. have all cut diplomatic ties with cut up you know the whole cat saudi arabia schism where the two u.s. allies almost came to blows here that was helped by charles and dreher the man who oversaw bellport injures operations in iraq propagandist extraordinary
1:29 am
financial and logistical support for terrorists and terrorism groups like hamas the taliban and al qaida who operate freely out of doha and use business and financial institutions to support radical islam and global jihad. mr on dreher was paid handsomely by a dubai based company to smear cata tire to terrorists to iran to tell everyone how bad and dirty it is using the iraqi formula anyway where's the radical islamism is operational. is significant operation going to be fine with . these documentary it really isn't became available on netflix you tube it was shown to trump's former chief strachan. just steve bannon four months she had trysts x. defense secretary leon panetta just to make it clear foreign money gulf arab
1:30 am
money used to make a fake propaganda film by professionals and then shown to millions shown to some of america's most influential figures to promote international conflict on figg grounds this is psyops the big time league of propaganda well so far the film production company and i under so see it says well as the dubai based lochness communications have said they won't comment well the film was released last summer when gulf states can't diplomatic trade and transport ties with qatar accusing it of supporting terrorism this is something doha has repeatedly denied then the u.s. president and sided with the arab nations saying qatar had a history of funding terror at a very high level saudi arabia took the lead in the isolation campaign which well
1:31 am
the kingdom's foreign minister is now warning the qatari government could collapse if it doesn't support washington's military operations in the middle east could start should finance the u.s. military's presence in syria and send its own military forces there before the u.s. president lifts american protection for qatar if the u.s. is to withdraw its protection represented by its military base in qatar then the regime there will fall within less than a week. well the saudi foreign minister there was referring to the presence of over eleven thousand u.s. troops in cattle he made the remarks after donald trump called for money and ground support in syria from wealthy u.s. allies in the middle east however the saudis who should be concerned about their friendship with washington i would like to see qatar's finances further trained it's interesting donald trump's remarks in self where he said that without us in other words without the americans those countries would fall within hours or weeks or something like this he said this is
1:32 am
a truth that is very rarely spoken publicly and they want you don't deflect attention onto one another. facebook has had another grilling from lawmakers this time in the u.k. the social media giant has been taken to task by m.p.'s over the platform's handling of people's private data it was also questioned about russian online activity around the time of the brics it vote r.t.s. and associate churkin are reports. russian brock's it could have been potentially a hot topic here in westminster this thursday however that did not go quite well as a grilling of a top facebook executive didn't seem to go and produce too much we did look at it several times to understand connections between. russia and the brits a referendum that you meant to the two thousand and sixteen we found one dollar of spending so this is the extent of what we found which is you know almost nothing
1:33 am
given to the ways i think it was and that if we had it happen to look good if we did have it it was done in a different way that say you know i can't prove a negative that was facebook's chief technology officer who to add insult to injury was sent by mark zuckerberg to answer m.p.'s questions deployed despite repeated pleas to have the facebook c.e.o. appear before this committee himself and we have to be clear that this is far from the first time one attempts to connect the dots between russia's use of social media and bracks it failed just previously we know that facebook said that they have found that russia had spent less than a dollar on any ads related to bracks and even when this committee travelled all the way to washington to get more answers that did not produce very much we looked at all advertisements with any connection to russia and we found no evidence of our services being used to interfere in the referendum a very small number of suspects it's not research agency linked accounts forty nine
1:34 am
such accounts were active during the campaign which represents less than point. of the total number of accounts these are very low levels think until we complete this investigation we won't know but what we haven't had this. information that's enabled us to target on a particular page or a particular phenomenon. more news after the break. they claim is a black hole and it is sucking hopes of all walks of life and money from all points of the globe and as it expands it just the wharfs the size of anything else trying to peace with it that includes various money regimes but also includes very high level bankers and economists so kristie the guard is just the latest to get lip to
1:35 am
the big calling black hole. look at the blockade in the animosity for fifty almost sixty years did it change the regime in cuba no the last administration realized that the majority of cuban americans wanted normalizations with a normal washing and when you normalize you can talk. i want to tell you from my experience in cuba when the united states you sugar instead of a hammer things change in cuba in the way that the united states wanted to. welcome back the girls club in the u.s. state of pennsylvania has apologized to five point clinton for calling the police on them they were killed his father complained that the women were playing too
1:36 am
slowly it's the latest of several incidents where african-americans have been arrested or were asked to leave a public facility in the u.s. . on sunday a black man was arrested as a diner not obama for refusing to pay for past ito missiles the video of her arrest shows offices resting her to the ground two weeks ago there was another case at the starbucks in for the day. thea stone called the police on two black men because they happen to place an order and wanting to use the restroom a wave of on to racism protest. was just ok i didn't want to die let. me be ok in response the c.e.o. of starbucks ordered all coffee houses to close the mandatory empty racism training following a nationwide campaign against the company who were reaction on this knotty spoke with economist and perkins and human rights activist randy short of. racism against
1:37 am
the two sions is real and the prejudices real exit but we need to care about america as well as an entire society and look after everyone if we don't do this we're going to have worse problems i have enormous difficulty accepting the idea that this young lady trying to run her starbucks in philadelphia spends time thinking about class and segregation and trying to target black people can't she's trying to run the restaurants and she's trying to do. in order and keep the business working and not let people take advantage of are you guys loitering and not purchasing products from the store while using their facilities how do you stop that from happening again but i don't think that's a little girl running the starbucks as best she can reluctantly calling the police to sign saying saying loitering again is thinking about using loitering laws against black people yes there are people that have
1:38 am
a literate and businesses yes there are folks out of water some of them of black but i've worked with a lot of white drunks in my day and they don't get a handle quite the same way this is a fact i'm not going to last october or early atlanta and playing a larger slowly than men and five women together play very slowly and the entire culture is waiting for the fact that i would like has nothing to do with it it's the fact that they are lol as a long ass. people pretend that injustice and mistreatment of people is ok as long as it does not impact yeah that is the problem with the majority it they lack an understanding that it can be us today and it could be them tomorrow now this is where i asked myself the question at what point do you treat black people like ordinary people and subject them to ordinary rules of society at what point do you stop taking every incident as racism and started valuating them as human beings and how they're reacting that's my question you can't. control the sea is being in the
