it looks like. this would. be the bottom if you. like you know that i got. was that we. would. welcome everybody to watch the science i robot and i'm talking wallace and no one has edited my wikipedia page from congress because i don't know what we can expect me i had when they took it down there so that i just wasn't relevant. apparently not how does it make you feel warm and cozy inside when someone says that your life has no relevance. but this is a major problem because we've seen a massive history in recent years of you know people jumping on whether people like a p.t.o. or fake comments online are submitting comments for regulatory processes just to
kind of manipulate what the perception of public interest is meddling meddling with you know it's not anything that we do call the meddling was under we're going to laws we have in place like it would be interesting you know down want to really talk about what kind of laws are in place. to punish someone for going in and misleading the public about information or in this sense misleading congress or misleading the government am the public about how the public feels about a certain issue well listen to this history when according the intercept the incidences of delivered to the government to boost support for regulatory positions have become. like everybody who i work once and know everyone is this pilot and i go we go this work save we can fake anything like that it's funny to me that they think it worked when they got caught and were mocked about it makes you wonder how many times we're caught every. i mean great point of things getting
caught was new york attorney generals now currently investigating submitted to the f.c.c. during the push to repeal that neutrality that saw it was like what two million now going to be stolen wall street through them not even alive so with the really famous old actresses to get their like why is my mom friend no one would take that my mother was like first of all it was there's a second bunch of names might pop up and make all the meat puppets in the advertising industry and it's a fake per cent online it's a fake personae used to push some sort of which is what some of us said yeah and then wall street journal discovered big comics in the consumer financial protection bureau has proposed rule on payday lending though you're seeing it in bank mergers . no worse than the public has actually is a payday lender or whatever to go out and put a positive or a video on let me just clear that up that's pretty rare that you know what he is going now it and saying like my my experience with a payday lender was so great it's not happened it's not happening and then when you
flip it over to like the wiki leaks side effects were he a side of yeah so sorry julian didn't mean yes very different sense or a sound of the wake of the. which as everybody knows this sort of community at it and i moderated that while there's a web site or a twitter account twitter bot called. what is it called congress at it so congress will automatically tweet whenever anything is whenever a wikipedia entry is edited from an ip address at capitol hill and so what happened here was republican senators lindsey graham mike lee and orrin hatch all have their phone numbers and home addresses put on wikipedia which we call doc then and it's not ok ok like i don't like any of those people anymore i find most of their republican you know most of their politics fairly repugnant and i'm sick of hearing the name orrin hatch i've heard his name my whole life and it's always attached to
horrible things so i don't want to hear them but you don't put out people you don't do x. people this is things that were done to attack women online they've been done to rape victims and assault victims these are things that are not ok so i'm glad i got caught before anyone got hurt because people do get hurt like let's try to be you know fight violence or fight ignorance with more ignorance and violence so whoever did that i hope it's just one of those like i'm an intern and i made. the tragedy other all but about to is the kind of research i did take it off twitter because it just read it you know. they just in general let it appears there's a new master and yes united states president donald trump has worked out a brand new potentially bad trade agreement with mexico and canada darn and an effort to replace the nine hundred ninety s. bill clinton era bad trade deal maginot of lee titled the united states mexico canada agreement or u.s.
ca which is not to be confused with the us embassy or united states marine corps the deal appears to be quite beneficial for the already immaculately successful corporate giants inhabiting silicon valley here to give us the details on just how these tech giants will benefit from the u.s. and ca is r t america correspondent. welcome. thank you sir always a pleasure so what are the details of. the two for you know you will see. these big hard drives what are we talking about so these big tech firms have already been protected by section two thirty of the u.s. communications decency act that was placed in play taken place twenty years ago now facebook founder and c.e.o. mark zuckerberg has been very vocal about it saying that it really has helped him in facebook success but admits that times have now changed the new provisions allow for them to avoid legal risks what this basically means is that google facebook and
amazon are not legally held responsible for what's posted on their websites by users so this now extends what the new u.s. m.c.a. will extend to canada and mexico as well but this is especially an interesting time given the recent allegations and accusations that facebook has been facing regarding the russian meddling during the twenty sixteen election but there are some exemptions to the law and these include tech giants can still be sued for incitement of violence protection against online sex trafficking sexual exploitation of children and prostitution so there are some limitations to go so just yeah it's very interesting considering there's been this major i mean we had you know. people going in front of congress and zuckerberg and all of them talking about how to protect and how to make these things what's interesting to me is there as we keep saying a pattern here and that's you know you're facebook's your amazons your googles our u.s. space do you think that this is the reason that these provisions were put into this
. very well could be different countries have different laws protecting its citizens and their privacy the e.u. for example took a law into a place to law into effect just earlier this year the general data protection regulation and it restricts how personal data from its citizens is being collected and handled what they need to do is be clear and concise about how they treat this information and even if it's in small print it's still not enough so people need to really be told specifically and it needs to be clear to them and think what we're doing with your information now. like i said the the small print of the matter. you it has to be straightforward and that's kind of a tragedy as most people always quote. you don't even know what ever reads it really there's no other countries are saying that you're things that have stricter policies protecting the privacy of citizens the facebook which is legally protected from a lot of liability here in the united states but there are some surely you know there
are international companies at this point of a population of facebook that rivals most for first world countries. how is that how is this being used internationally home by these laws affect to users of the platform outside of the u.s. were there are already affecting users like facebook where a lot of european union use them they're actually facing a potential fine of one point six billion dollars this is over a possible breach of the e.u. allowed hackers to access over fifty million accounts of these users and although only ten percent were actually used in the e.u. the irish data protection commission commission which is a. a watchdog of the e.u. is still looking into whether or not they're actually going to sue them but top of the entire this isn't the first time that e.u.'s fining these big tech giants school was actually find for two point seven billion dollars after the search engine violated some rules on antitrust for its online shopping retail practices
and this was even before g.d.p. our was regulated and put into place so this was just based on antitrust by. its interests and they were looking around the world the e.u. has very strict laws that is that everything from g.m.o. as to how your data gets used it's interesting how now we live in this global world that we are kind of falling afoul of each other and it's also because i think i think we could use some of those antitrust laws like you're talking about here in the united states because we have far too many companies like google like of facebook that are kind of you know they're the only one realistically that everybody uses that could you could make an argument and that's probably why they get these protections so they're able to just you know further what he's going to billion dollars it's just the cost of doing. excellent reporting and it's going to be interesting to see how this new deal plays out because i think we can all agree
that nafta did not play out the way anyone promised to see how to deal with kind of a mexico plays out as well so i want to thank you so much for coming illustrating yourselves with the bill. all right as we go to break watchers don't forget to let us know what you think of the topics we've covered on facebook and twitter see our poll shows that are coming up while the u.s. congress clutches their pearls of marriage through their teeth over the testimony and confirmation vote they have accidentally on purpose ignored when they were in the violence against women act journalist jacqueline keeler joins us to discuss that so stay true to watching the whole.
the way to the united states is dangerous for most of the illegal immigrants. to the most. simple they want to. just about but many of them look for refuge in the so-called sentries sides of the drug used to share information about undocumented migrants with federal authorities. bank. policy to point out i've ended up my son i guess i'm in a lot of class and that's what. they have to watch as they all choose to stay in the country with donald trump in the white house. to be about to be. the push to put the bills spawn both of you out of a good hope of the. facts geysers financial survival guide.
housing bubble. oh you mean there's a downside to artificial mortgage through don't get carried away that's because reports. don't accept the slow drivers will start to do a little bit. of speed. over. me. one of them somebody that doesn't know it's a mess you never know what's happening and what they're shooting let's hear.
well that's very. good maybe you. just think of that in that you but i'm addicted to sit with your middle class and in the muslim saudis to deal with. thank. you. i'm going to pull a column on your folks and not in the way you think let me tell you something congress doesn't care about women congress also doesn't care about victims of sexual violence if they did care about victims of sexual violence female or male they wouldn't have let the violence against women acts expire which serves both genders in regard to sexual assault because dead let it expire and with expiration
we lose support for the federal rape shield law that limits the ability to introduce evidence or cross-examined rape complaints about their complaints about their past sexual behavior it protects victims from eviction due to the acts of abuse or stalking on the property funding for rape crisis centers elder abuse prevention programs and legal aid funding for victims of sexual or domestic violence and while some eighty percent of reported rape victims are white native american women are much more likely to be a victim of sexual violence than any other race or ethnic group in the us and they are much much less likely to see any kind of justice according to the government accountability office federal courts refused to prosecute up to sixty seven percent of sexual assault cases on reservations against native american women and it's why sixteen study by the u.s. department of justice it was found that more than four in five american indian and alaska native alaskan native women eighty four point three percent have experienced
violence in their lifetime this includes fifty six point one percent who have experienced sexual violence and forty eight point eight percent who have experienced stalking however the most disturbing thing is that according to the same study ninety percent of native american women have experienced violence at the hands of a non tribal member and the only thing that has allowed victims of violence on reservations. to get justice is the violence against women's act joining us today from portland oregon to discuss this topic is native writer and award winning journalist jacqueline keeler thank you so much for joining us today jacqueline. thank you for having me thank you so the violence against women act was passed in one nine hundred ninety two which i want to make i want to add was coined the year of the woman because of the impact of anita hill's one thousand nine hundred one testimony and the record number of women that one congressional seats and that momentum helped to get the act passed now we're in the year of blaming women for
everything and it's gone from words to actions and they're now now it's just blatantly putting lives at less risk when you see this jacqueline what does the violence against women act do specifically to help native victims of sexual violence and why is that so necessary. yeah there are large swaths the united states in which native women are completely vulnerable there are gaps in the justice system which were really evolved in the nineteenth century and were made worse with rulings that happened in the twentieth century basically tribes do not have jurisdiction over non-natives so if you are not rolled in a federally recognized tribes the tribe any tribe does not have jurisdiction over you show you have reservations where as you noted the f.b.i. is often the the party that would investigate and they decline to investigate over seventy percent of these cases that are reported in the confusion about jurisdiction means that there is inaction in follow up you know sheriffs may not
know if they have jurisdiction over a certain area or not some reservations like for berthold which is in the middle of the bokken which has a great deal of issues because of the man camps for building the pipelines is you know has five or six i think counties that intersect on the reservation so you're talking about six different. sheriffs and so yeah there are huge and you know people know this they know that they can go to the reservation and commit murder and rape and not be prosecuted so leave native women in their own homelands incredibly vulnerable to violence. it's interesting because between two thousand and five and two thousand and nine u.s. attorneys declined to prosecute sixty seven percent of matters referred to them involving sexual abuse of native americans with this and other statistics so grim in recent years and getting worse as the united states by the government in
violation of the united nations declaration of the rights of indigenous people that's the most important question of the get out. will you know it i don't know that the i think the u.s. is kind even if they didn't sign it but they you know it's i think the issue is that. indigenous communities are very are at risk this certainly you know falls under the. geneva conventions on genocide you know making the population so at risk even in our in our home particularly in our home communities i mean i'm safer living in off the reservation i am on the reservation because violence against me can actually be prosecuted under the violence against women's act when it was amended the two thousand and thirteen version which passed in two thousand and fifteen and was held up for two years by republicans they did not want to extend tribal jurisdiction over non-natives and so what vowel out
the. two thousand and thirteen was to allow tribes to assume jurisdiction over domestic violence cases on the reservation and so over anybody not just federally enrolled people and so so this actually this is what is at stake several tribes have gone through the process of being able to. to get the training and everything to be able to implement. on their reservations but this is definitely at risk with the with the lapse in the author's reauthorization there's been a temporary reauthorization till december first and definitely it's something that is a response to the funding for actually funding these different justice initiatives right and as i said it's well it's interesting because the violence against women act actually covers as i said both genders lots of programs everything from elder abuse to you know education in youth programs well one of the
things we've noticed we've noticed is that you know during you know when black lives matter came up we looked at the statistics for native american men they were much more at risk of being shot and killed by a on armed by a police officer than even african-american men were and we keep seeing this ignorance like just sort of ignoring violence against native american populations in general and. what i wanted to ask you was near the end of twenty seventeen the f.b.i.'s national crime information center had said their database had six hundred thirty three open missing person cases for native american women and i keep seeing it over and over women are missing more native american women western and nothing is happening there doesn't seem to be an alarm bell let me ask you is this another is this a matter of jurisdictions not being clear or is it a lack of communication between non-tribal law enforcement and the tribes or is it
something else entirely. yeah i covered the case of the search for a living alone bear i wrote about that. in may and her body to deal with this is is the matter hand and the stronger we are politically or south this is the less vulnerable we are i believe and so i really feel that. we need to address that. we do and that's one of the things that i think we've always talked about on this show and that is i want to keep this conversation go away i want to keep keeping on these stories because what we've seen over the years is that there is this you know being someone of european descent you know my ancestors came here and took that land and i think one of the things is find these intersectional points where we can help each other to protect that sovereignty and to protect and as a woman to protect women they do for your work award winning journalist and navajo yankton dakota sioux writer jacqueline killer thank you so much for joining us.
thank you for having me. between one thousand no one and one nine hundred seventy and a mere fifty women were awarded a nobel prize and only two of those women have been awarded the nobel prize in physics during that time until now donna strickland of the university of waterloo bard luke and i was awarded the twenty eighteen nobel prize in physics for her groundbreaking inventions in the field of laser physics it is for her work which she coauthored in one thousand nine hundred five in fact it was her very first published scientific paper the work was the discovery of a way to amplify the power of laser beams and short bursts which is the news in laser eye surgeries and help shift the laser industry into overdrive we're now able to use lasers because of her inventions in applications like cutting drilling data storage and surgical procedures all because of surplus work seven coauthored the study the basis for her doctoral thesis with her ph d. adviser at the time gerard maru who shares credit and will share in the one million
dollars prize money when asked what advice would give to her younger self she said hang on for the ride voice you know for the ride like the voyage. to graduation. remember that is our show today is number one in this world we are told to love the love so i tell you. oh i love you i am tired robot from top of the wall and keep on watching those hawks and have a great day. when the whole make the manufacture come sentenced to public wells. when the room in
clusters and protect themselves. in the final merry go round to be the one person. doing the whole middle of the room signals. the real news. america is a house deeply divided and that division only continues the entire brett kavanaugh saga has turned into blood sport demanding each and every one of us pick a side we're in new territory and that place is called winner takes all. cooked additional note of what was and gets up to linger some of these it's inconsistent. and it's not the most.
simple yet so in him if you. look at with a showing of the where. you think it will show movie you have the same sort of. both of shifting. up and most of the book is the work of the person you're both still to say no so do. you know what the bull. was the latest news in the for us. boise he writes so yes i've put this was going to do some. research through some really strong. it's. quite frankly i think old legitimacy is in libya have deteriorated and have fragmented and it is extremely important that we have a new digital see over
a presidency that has the photos that have been people people who have aspirations like freedom indeed to have aspirations like living in dignity and quite frankly to deny them the right to vote with the pretext that oh it's not time yet or you don't have bread so you should not be asking for the vote you should vote for people who will provide the breadth and provide the services. that. we. need to make. the u.s. national security adviser stays in washington he will live you would think that he's america exposed to the international criminal court powers off the same boat he orders washington to lift some of it is a wrong time. the british prime minister attempts to dull soft
mounting pressure that's reason make it so let's have no confidence from the only policy members because most people having a full faith. all say this now i don't know trunk wars they complained of saudi arabia that he wouldn't last two weeks without thinking us military as the us president continues to to accuse opec of being for doing things prices. is it getting. close.
