3:30 pm
this catastrophe unfolding in britain. was its connection to the d. and the ability of the telecom and yet asked for rights into the e.u. you take those away and you have this actually greece on steroids and all those banks and the e.u. and america are going to attack the worst place and drive into bankruptcy. greetings and sell you take us it's bad enough having to deal with our privacy being violated by a lated constantly by our friends of the national security agency with our online and phone conversations consistently being sucked up in mosques and stored in a massive and spooky priscilla b. in utah seriously spooky priscilla in utah look it up but soon we may not even find
3:31 pm
a privacy a piece of privacy to our minds in the great churches of capitalism yes the brick and mortar retail stores may no longer be a private all things to the retail colossus that is wal-mart according to a new patent filed with the us government the retail giant is looking to install a new technology in stores that would allow wal-mart officials to monitor employee productivity b.-o. audio surveillance of checkout counters. naturally we're being told that the high powered microphone technology would only be used for things like employee efficiency and determining if checkout lines are too long as wal-mart states in the pattern itself a need exists for ways to capture these sounds resulting from the people in the shopping facility and determine performance of employees based on those sounds. and we know we know that given wal-mart's long history of employee goodwill like
3:32 pm
punishing workers for sick days or handing out paychecks so small that their employees have cost u.s. taxpayers some six billion dollars in public assistance we know that we can only assume that this new surveillance technology well will only be used for good and that employees and customers will. have their privacy abused while buying clorox wipes condoms and peanut butter cocoa pubs at three am on a tuesday night. yeah i don't think so with private industry now going full on to say i'm of the auspices of a fish and sea and security you better believe that it's time to start watching the hawks. to. get the. real deal with. as a lot of. what it looks like you know that i got. this.
3:33 pm
week so i. wrote for the watch of the hawks i am a robot and and have a lot. to. say and there are almost no many things wrong with wal-mart and this is just a small amount of them and so according to this patent document that was filed with the u.s. government wal-mart is saying that they're calling in this invention listening to the front end to sound cell and i were just listening to that from london. and if you think that wal-mart isn't going to isn't interested in what we're saying as if it's just as oh no just the sound the buttons and cards claim going and we'll figure it all open their their patent actually states many different types of sounds result from people in. a shopping facility for example guests of the shopping facility may talk amongst each other or the employees of the shopping facility so obviously know that this thing can't just be you're going to be
3:34 pm
recording. but then i just wonder how this is going to in states where you have two party consent you where you require two party consent so is it just going to be a sign saying you're probably being recorded in this space so it wouldn't surprise me because you see like you know on businesses and things like our salaries yeah you know you're under surveillance like you see that in certain buildings or like if you live in california or see this building is highly toxic to your health when you walk in with the little signs there yeah you know something i'm certain of that's kind of what we're going to come down to. this bothers me because it's like and i wonder if this is kind of opened the door like of our because we've allowed the n.s.a. to abuse our privacy for so long is this going to opening the doors of like private industry saying well if you let the government do it why can't we record everything you say or do especially when you're in a store going home awkward is that you know i mean i think the and its heritage as well i think you. know what we are. i think it's
3:35 pm
a ridiculously large amount of money knowing how much the patent process takes to try to like patent this one thing as if somehow consumers and business business people and investors around the world are going to be like oh one more can snoop on everybody and figure out you know they're getting of the future it's not going to happen nobody's going to be thrilled it's not going to be something that actually helps plus good luck trying to figure out your entire performance of an employee based on sound i know i mean what happens is we hoist super nice and is like going to slows up the checkout line we're not going to i'm just not the night yapping not you know assistant professor at cornell university's industrial and labor relations school if you want told buzz feed news that quote there's a lot of there's a lot of potential for misuse even though the technology is presented as interested in one. thing the fact that it has the potential for both things to be captured is of concern is the employee and the customer and there's mission creep. we
3:36 pm
just want to help regulate the length of lines and make sure that the right leg eventually you're not going to just be listening to what everyone's saying because you can sell that data you could refashion your store based on what people are saying and you're going to pick up things i think a lot of people are really want to be the public well and who's to say that it's one of those things that they'll start using it with law enforcement because this person in the store what they say we're on the story they were making a drug deal they were doing all of this but i mean it's important to remember that just because they have their evil genius patent doesn't mean that they're actually using it or that will actually develop it or that they can even afford to implement at the level that they're talking about which requires a lot of analysts a lot of hardware i just think it's sort of i think it's a whole lot of. developing we live in europe where they have actually really good data privacy laws where employees employers actually have to tell employees what
3:37 pm
data they're collecting about them and how the company plans to use it but since we live in the united states of america we don't have things like privacy anymore. or workers' rights. things like unions silly. because this is like following a chain of events now because you also look last february amazon patented a wristband that apparently would be put on their warehouse employees to monitor where their hands are going when they're packing inventory boxes but by break if you put something in the wrong box if you lose big business big brother that's where we're headed. the much talked about much debated and very much overhyped summer summit between u.s. president donald trump and russian president vladimir putin took place on the. the meaning came despite desperate calls for trump to cancel by major congressional democrats like senate minority leader chuck schumer and after
3:38 pm
a deputy attorney general rod rosenstein laid out a fresh set of miller probe indictments on friday that were high on allegations but low on actual evidence of election meddling and d.n.c. hocking joining us now live from helsinki finland to bring us latest on all the twists and turns of the trump summit as our g. correspondent on your part. just saw on your borrowing. controversial have blinds coming out of the middle some of trump's visit to the u.k. the white house seems to be setting a rather low bar for the summit with president putin what took place at the meeting and how did it go for the two leaders from your perspective. to have a president's trump and putin look very confident coming out of today's meeting and their role there to our discussion which was followed by
3:39 pm
a lunch and they were very happy to address the press today about the possibilities for future u.s. russia cooperation on major global issues trump said the meeting was deeply productive and went very well saying they discussed issues ranging from korea to syria nuclear disarmament the joint comprehensive plan of action or iran deal none of these topics though were of interest to the d.c. press corps which didn't ask for any details about how trump and putin might work together on major issues such as the crisis in syria and the war winding down there in stead we heard them just ask constantly about the robert mueller indictment which was handed down on for. right a charging twelve alleged russian intelligence operatives over the hacking of the
3:40 pm
d.n.c. server so trump said that he was here to engage in the proud tradition of american diplomacy but the press that i was traveling with here on the american side were not so thrilled to be engaging in diplomacy interesting so you mentioned last friday special counsel robert mueller indicted a dozen russian intelligence officers with the hurricane and many skeptics who pointed out that the indictment seems to have been intentionally time to force trump and putin's conversation in that direction away from the potential cooperation did this play out at all in helsinki. i think it certainly did if it wasn't a political move by a special counsel or counsel mueller he was still successful in completely dominating the media's coverage of the event with these headlines concerning
3:41 pm
collusion and i have to say i was pretty embarrassed sitting there on the american press corps side this afternoon with you know trump and putin two very powerful world leaders there and the only two american reporters who were given the opportunity to ask questions focused solely on the issue of collusion and the indictment nothing about korea ukraine nuclear power nothing like that but interestingly enough when asked about the latest indictment which came out friday president putin actually offered to cooperate with the united states. so we can offer that the appropriate commission headed by special attorney muller he can use this treaty as a solid foundation and send a formal and official request to us so that we would interrogate and hold the questioning of these individuals who he believes privy to some crime in our law enforcement are perfectly able to do this questioning and send the appropriate
3:42 pm
materials to the united states. moreover we can meet you halfway we can make another step we can actually permit the official representatives of the united states including the members of this very commission headed by mr mohler we can let them into the country and they will be present for this questioning but in this case there is another concession this kind of effort should be a mutual one. who manned bold move by vladimir there interesting now last week president trump criticized german chancellor angela merkel and called germany a captive of russia for working with russia on a new gas pipeline instead of buying u.s. energy peter did trump backed down from his kind of stance on aggressive gas wars language you know having now you know face to face with putin the did putin get him to back down or to drum you know double down. it wasn't mentioned as a main topic of discussion during the initial statements from either trump or putin
3:43 pm
but the question of the north stream to pipeline was raised by a member of the russian press delegation to which president trump responded by saying he wasn't sure if it was in germany's best interest to go ahead with building the pipeline but that regardless the united states is the number one producer of natural gas in the world and while that may be true it is also true that it appears as though germany has decided it is in that nation's best interest to build this pipeline which will connect a region around st petersburg to north eastern germany and to be able will allow russia to double its import abilities to germany when it comes to natural gas angela merkel's looking to phase out nuclear power in germany by the year twenty twenty two so that will help or at least in that goal and when it comes to europe while the united states may be the number one producer of natural
3:44 pm
gas russia is the number one supplier of natural gas with about forty percent of the entire european union's natural gas imports coming from russia and the number for germany is that forty four percent so. not backing down necessarily from his opposition to the pipeline but perhaps coming to the turn coming to terms with the fact that it will be builds most of the on your part. but if you so much for joining us today all right as we go to break or quarters don't forget to let us know what you think of the property cover the facebook and twitter sphere for show that or to dot com coming up we talk with legendary lawyer alan dershowitz about his new book challenging the call to impeach president all from the man we highlight a mountain climber who truly season. the state to what books. the
3:45 pm
new economic war is unfolding in the realm of education the right to education being supplanted by the right to access education it's higher education is becoming just another product that can be bullish and sold so there's not just about education anymore it's also about running a business and what you're good. to me. is the place of students in this business model for college now i'm. higher education the new global economic wall.
3:46 pm
seemed wrong. just don't call. me. yet to shape out. the cuts to education and engagement equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart. chance to look for common ground. yes. eight u.s. presidents have faced impeachment throughout the storied history of the united states from president john tyler's handling of the treasury back in eight hundred forty three to bill clinton's i did not have sexual relations and of course richard m. nixon croke handling of the watergate scandal and its fall out the impeachment process is found in article two section four of the u.s. constitution and according to history dot com the process includes the filing of
3:47 pm
formal charges with which at the federal level is performed by the u.s. house of representatives and the resulting trial which is conducted conducted by the u.s. senate during which the chief of chief justice of the u.s. supreme court acts as judge since the first accusations of alleged russian interference in twenty so in the twenty sixteen u.s. election in favor of donald trump there have been calls from the neo liberal left and the russian or russia hawks on the right for the impeachment of president trump especially after his firing of former f.b.i. director james comey but one prominent legal voice has spoken out against these calls for him cheech meant famed lawyer and harvard law professor alan dershowitz and his latest book the case against impeaching trump dershowitz uses his knowledge of constitutional law to argue against both his political colleagues and foes who are now calling for the removal of one donald trump recently our own tire of interest to travel to the book signing in new york city to sit down with mr dershowitz to discuss his new book.
3:48 pm
alan one of the dames are calling for an impeachment of donald trump with the dangers are of undercutting the constitution when you reverse an election without a constitutional basis that's the road to tyranny so nothing could be more important we distinguish between democracies and banana republic cement and a republic they rigged them selves of unpopular leaders by coups and other non constitutional means we pride ourselves in being a nation under the law and the constitution provides very rigid criteria for how you can remove a president from office and in my book the case against impeaching trump i demonstrate that those criteria have not been met is this current culture in washington of using criminal law as a weapon in politics or is this something new to the american experience no it's
3:49 pm
been used for years look thomas jefferson used the criminal law against his arch enemy aaron burr he ordered his attorney general to prosecute and convict her and called the chief justice and said unless you convict him i will have you paid. byrd was acquitted but nonetheless he had to go through a treason trial how does politicizing in using criminal law as a weapon in politics how does that affect the checks and balances in our constitutional republic well it isn't part of our constitutional system of checks and balances that really goes outside the system and endangers all of our civil liberties because it can expand the criminal law to target your political enemies were really on the road to a very dangerous place it was leverett the bay area the notorious head of stalin's k.g.b. who said to stalin show me the man and i'll find. you the crime we never want that
3:50 pm
to happen in this kind of for someone who is pro impeachment why should they read your book. because they will see what the implications are beyond donald trump they will see that today it's from tomorrow it's going to the next day it's bernie sanders and the day after that it's new. you clearly state in the book that you're not defending donald trump or his policies but yet you're still being attacked why do you believe that is and i think people believe that i'm not defending trump's policies they know that i have opposed this immigration policies the separation of families his remarks that charlottesville is approach to guns his approach to health care his approach with taxation i'm on the other side of the political aisle but people hate the fact that what i'm saying may help from i would have written the same book hillary clinton had been elected in fact to make the
3:51 pm
point my publisher came up with an alternate cover this is the actual cover the alternate coverage the case against impeaching clinton it's the same bug just a different title but people would love me the liberals would love me if i were defending hillary clinton. with the country so divided and everybody else fighting each other and sticking to their guns for the same time i'm not going to listen to anyone else talk. if you had one message for america what would that be if you are making any positions always apply the show on the other foot test would i be saying this is the shoe were on the other foot if it were a democrat whether a problem for a president you'd like rather than a president you dislike we must have neutral principles that apply equally to everybody in the country that's what our equal protection clause demands and that's the essence of america as you know i'm almost eighty i've lived through mccarthyism
3:52 pm
i've lived through the viet. war the war in iraq nine eleven and every decade we said it's different now it's different it's never different we're always peace difficulties and we managed to survive. joining us now to discuss mr dershowitz on the lack of case for impeachment as a legal and media analyst line of light on media so so lionel as a lawyer and legal analyst i was a sub does mr dershowitz is case against the impeachment trouble or calls for impeachment does that hold water now not at all really i kid of course as an aside what i love about old gershon is edgy use a particular term that a certain governor of minnesota might know he was a baby face now he's a heel he's flipped he's taking heat he does know what to do all his martha's vineyard folks have turned their back on him so we say oh no no this was this was
3:53 pm
about the impeachment he walked right into trump derangement syndrome i mean head on and now he's backtracking i love the guy don't get me wrong he's a he's just like this burr under the saddle on the fly the oid me he drives everybody crazy we got a lot in common but let me ask you a question and next time you see ask him this for me notice how i call him now let's assume as we lawyers say argue endo assume argue one doe. that the majority of the house issues an article of impeachment to throw donald john trump out because of his hair and they sign it because of his hair high crimes and misdemeanors. there's hair just signed it fifty one percent oh my god it goes to the senate the plurality sixty seven percent sixty seven votes seventy votes say you're right bad hair and we throw him out question number one professor
3:54 pm
dershowitz whom do you were peeled as to clearly it's ridiculous clearly that drafters of the constitution never add this to my question number one can a court review this no no you mention if you want a very good question on the role you said his support of the checks and balances yes in a way because the courts are checked but i'm only told what that phrase means but they are checked from forcing this and the cases nixon against the united states won't turn next and by the way and the court basically said listen. we're here to just sit back and say this is a political question this is up to you separation of powers we're just here for the beer we're the world over see this but this is your uses your show they said well what happens if they do something wrong what if they interpret the constitution
3:55 pm
incorrectly oh ok maybe we'll do that but the bottom line is and go back on the line that gerald ford said was if the majority of the house issues an article of impeachment for anything it's what ever they say and if the peral of the votes to convict because remember people always want to talk about impeachment impeachment just means to charge convection is what you mean conviction is just like me arresting you and guiding you you want somebody to go to prison you want somebody to be thrown out that the senate party that that conviction so people never even get the whole impeachment the because to them impeachment means their removal just means that charging so i've got news for you to a great book but i could have saved them a lot of time and effort we could talk all day long about to say it mean it's an entitled offense does it mean bribery does it mean that the president can only do
3:56 pm
something that only the president can do during the bill clinton case for example people said you can't throw somebody out because you lied about adultery tell everybody lies about adultery it's your duty to lie about adultery and yet that's that's not what something that a president can do richard nixon different sic in the f.b.i. and somebody you know auditing taxes so we can debate all this stuff and this is terrific but the bottom line ladies and gentlemen of the jury is it's what average house once don't let anybody tell you anything different. you're saying. we should lie about adultery is that what i heard escape your lips there for me. but if somebody does something if you're going to throw the president out merely because he lied about adultery that's not something that only presidents do and you know there were a what i'm doug about ventura don't don't botch me and i will get on that or the
3:57 pm
part that that's the part that got me what richard nixon did was different he was i mean this is a different story but yet again if they wanted to impeach nixon because of his hair they could have done it but it was interesting stuff and i would recommend check out own version which is book always a pleasure to have you on laurel of one all media thank you so much indeed thank you. there often times in life where it seems like something is impossible to accomplish sometimes we need to take a break from the drudgery and the anxiousness of our political climate to look at the stories that remind us of the incredible power of human wealth and human will is certainly a great feat in the life of eric why in my the first blind rock climber to scale the tallest peak in every continent including mount everest. meyer was diagnosed around the age of four of the rare eye disease known as threat no schizos which causes the detachment and on raveling of the retinas from the optic nerves leaving
3:58 pm
him completely blind by age thirteen he began to rock climbing at a young age shortly after going blind in years as his hands against the rocks like sighted people use their eyes to search for what's ahead of him feeling for stable and strong spaces to hold on to. why and myers says when people say the summit see the summit for the view i think they're missing a lot of the equation of why we do things we do the movement is for me the most exciting part it's all right well that is our show for you today remember everyone in this world your love told your love the love sources all i wrote. i roll over and i'm tapped a lot keep on watching those talks over great day and night everybody. the new economic war is unfolding in the realm of education the right to education is being supplanted by the right to. education. high education is becoming
3:59 pm
just another product that can be bought and sold so there's not just about education anymore it's also about running a business what you. want is the place of students in this business model before college i was born now and i'm extremely more higher education the new global economic war.
