11:30 am
in the audacity the audacity crazy of her to publicly question a pack in the israeli government's political influence over us politicians naturally the elite on both sides of the aisle came screaming to the defense of poor poor poor poor or hurt chelsea clinton as they do when one of their own is actually confronted and held accountable by one of the by one of us of the unwashed masses who are supposed to just shut up do was we're told and never ever question authority or the next in line for the throne. it's going to be an interesting and fun and controversial show today so let's start by watching the hawks. getting. the. real thing it's really. the bottom. like you that i got. with that we. would.
11:31 am
welcome her on the watching the hawks i am i wrote for her joining me today is watching all the social media producers them sprint thank you for coming on and talking about this particular interesting piece of news that one insanely viral over the weekend. the young activist a mourner in the video who confronted chelsea clinton she faced some very intense pushback in the video. you know after the video went viral what is she saying publicly about her motivations for confronting clinton in this manner of what is but her response to all this well i want to say you're right she's faced massive backlash and an op ed they actually the woman who filmed it and the woman who is speaking to call in their own op ed for buzz feed in the article they actually said they have gotten death threats sexual assault threats hate like hate messages i
11:32 am
mean everything you can imagine they have a now sort of national campaign against them but what is honestly a bit exciting is that they've doubled down and they said they're not sorry for it in that same article as well as on twitter they said they were quote speaking truth to power right centrally that they had the moment to speak with someone who is normally a pretty elite and this close of person and they took that chance and took that moment i know as someone who before being a journalist was an activist i have had someone moments where i've spoken directly to people in places of. hour or from families of power and it's the same feeling you have to take that moment we don't necessarily have a political system that allows us to feeling gauge in politics and have these conversations on on an official scale so if it happens in a mosque or a church on the sidewalk you have to take those moments plus this is a muslim woman who was mourning muslims the vigil and i think one point she even tweeted out of there was a tweet saying that there was almost more white christians speaking you know
11:33 am
celebrity type you know political celebrity speaking at this than actual muslim people mourning the loss everybody from i mean you talk about a united are apparently attacking chelsea clinton as a united i mean everyone from kathy griffin to junior's come out defending chelsea and attacking the way for actions deborah what are these kind of chelsea defender missing or ignoring about the context of the situation well i think there's a lot to be said and as you can see in the tweets that are out right now everyone i mean rosie o'donnell. people who are just using this as a platform really now for themselves at this point much like what chelsea was doing so you can two weeks prior be helping sort of ignite a hate campaign against a black muslim woman ohana omar and then now you want to be in solidarity with muslims right i think that's what people are missing and by focusing sort of outrage on this video of her getting first off she wasn't shouted at she wasn't braided they raise their voice
11:34 am
a little bit and spoke sternly with her and that's about it anyone can see in the video so i think it's just people are missing that the woman herself who is speaking to her was muslim and said this is how i feel in this out others in this very building feel in the cameras being held by israeli woman as well as you know so it's kind of what has been made the victim as well as the white girl by the white gregg's redwood who is married to a goldman sachs executive but now suddenly the victim you know what message do you think is being truly lost whether. you know by accident or on purpose and kind of all of this grand standing around this well i think that in their op ed for a buzz feed the two women actually addressed this directly they said quote unfortunately people have cynically seized on this confrontation to divert attention from the conversation we need to be having about muslim bigotry and white supremacy they continue to say that they face death threats as i said earlier and they say in their haste to the think chelsea clinton people continue to vilify emotional moment for speaking her so they're doing the exact same thing they're
11:35 am
allegedly outraged with and it's a lot of celebrities who seem to just want to be building a platform off of this moment and it's really sad at the end of the day them because realistically this is again the moment where people need to be talking they need to be coming together in the fact that we can't i mean if we've gotten to this point now where we just we our political system is so destroyed that the only confrontation the only way we can reach those in power is in public places like you were mentioning earlier i mean you see the videos of people being part of the restaurants politicians about things like that you know now it's look at chelsea's there are purple and was bombed a lot of a lot of muslim people over the course of years she has to be held accountable to that sort of stuff even if she wasn't pulling the trigger that's her family's legacy right i mean when public officials and politicians and people who have been elected and make decisions that impact you know the lives of the masses of the public right and we feel that we don't have a protest of her says about somebody democracy that we can voice that in right well what else do we have exactly if your decisions impact others in the words you say
11:36 am
a word comes into that it was either cut you off you never got to got to get to the next piece but always a pleasure having you on thank you so much for coming on and bringing us this in great stuff great stuff. the political fallout over the christchurch shooting is far from over and the politics of hate and fear mongering are once again thankfully being forced to confront their rhetoric which is why in the days of and weeks powering a tragedy like this we must stay as informed as possible else we too may fall for the. politics of fear and here to bring us the best information available to us today including new info on yet another shooting this time in the netherlands is our two americas actually breaks. dutch police have arrested who they suspect to be responsible for shooting at a tram in the city of utrecht leaving at least three dead and multiple people endured now go and prime minister has told us very worrying as police to raise the terror alert to the maximum level while searching for the suspect around eleven

11:38 am
a senseless act of violence against innocent people which we condemn. this is not who we are as a people in new zealand museum does not as a peaceful society that is welcome in the church is diversity kindness compassion this kind of violence has no place in that society. apprise church a gun shop is now acknowledging it sold guns online to the twenty eight year old white supremacists responsible for these deaths the gunman identified as brenton harrison talent in australia national was sold for guns and ammunition through police a verified online mail order process but country's prime minister says the attack it's exposed a range of weaknesses and new zealand gun laws adding gun law reform will be announced in just a matter of days and investigation walls will be conducted into intelligence and security services that fail to detect terror and was up to something he didn't

11:40 am
during the great depression which i'm old enough to remember there was and most of my family were unemployed. and it wasn't it was bed you know much worse objective listen today but there was an expectation that things are going to get better. there was a real sense of hopefulness there isn't today today's america was shaped by the turn principles of concentration of wealth and power. reduced democracy attack solo doubt engineer elections manufacture consent and other principles
11:41 am
according to no i'm chomsky one set of rules for the rich opposite set of rules for . that's what happens when you put her into the hands of a narrow sector of wilf which will is dedicated to increasing power for chills just as you'd expect one of the most influential intellectuals of our time speaks about the modern civilization of america. what politicians do something. they put themselves on the line and they get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. for something wanted us. to be for us it's like that before three in the morning can't be good. i'm interested always in the waters and the how. nice it.
11:42 am
gets oh. we've been a real good shots people get murdered life. but sometimes. young people decide if they want to not like their parents not right. and liberals. always struggle school again you always have problems but you can focus on is the most ubiquitous gun out there most police departments use it almost every stores in the school that they could get their hands on in common with them twenty four hours. we were it teaching these kids about racism about police brutality taking pride in them they are these kids are a part of all history. but
11:43 am
before we get to the cloak and dagger of the n.s.a. let's talk about the united states cloak and dagger operations that no one admits exists and we move on now to the latest an ongoing political fight for the leadership in venezuela. this week it's reported that the elected president on his way with nicolas maduro has asked his entire cabinet for their resignation for more on this we're joined from miami with the latest on this interesting twist is our to america's john hardy thank you so much for coming on and you know bring us up to date on what's going on about his way why isn't there goes. his cabinet to resign and hasn't happened yet what's the time where time for him. yeah it's a good question tyrell it's good to be with you by the way we haven't heard if the
11:44 am
entire cabinet has resigned news of this just to kind of set the scene for the news of this came from venezuelan vice president elsie rodriguez who tweeted out yesterday that i had asked his entire executive cabinet to be relieved from their dirty duties in order to restructure the government she says in this tweet adding that the reorganization is aimed at protecting the as she says fatherland and goes on to say from any threat now this of course comes tyrrel as you and your viewers know is venezuela still really from you know the widespread blackouts that have really thrown the country into you know overall darkness really further exacerbating the ongoing political situation there and one that suggested could be the result of a high tech cyber warfare attack by the united states and or electromagnetic attacks he says by infiltrators attacking the power grid from within the electrical you know company and within the electrical system what is likely also along with
11:45 am
the accusations and ongoing speculation and to near say that the massive power failure is also the result of years of under-investment in the country's power grid and power plants and overall lack of maintenance but you know having said all that over the weekend there were doing rallies in venezuela both for and against the madeira government thousands of supporters marched through caracas on saturday while there was a counter-rally opposition rally with one. that was held in the city of aleppo which. is outside of caracas and why don't maintain tyrrel that the opposition is not going to stop until the madeira government is replaced however that happens and blame the ongoing power problems not on infiltration or sabotage but poor maintenance and lack thereof it's interesting because you have two of the biggest players outside of as well as the u.s. and russia right now those officials officials from both those countries are meeting in rome is there any word what may come out of those discussions between u.s. and russian officials. yeah tyrrell this is important because these are two of the
11:46 am
main players as you were just talking about the u.s. a special representative to venezuela elliott abrams is meeting with russian deputy foreign minister sergey lavrov because of as you said they're going to be scheduled for meetings tomorrow because of said the positions of moscow and washington and these are his words are diametrically opposed on the question of how to encourage negotiations between the venezuelan government and the opposition but that there is no reason he says the u.s. and russia shouldn't address the question and talk about it and i think there are people on both sides that agree with that radical have also said that. they will do everything to protect the cooperation with caracas that russia's government will do everything to protect beyond go in co-operation and added that russia will warn the u.s. against using force and other forms of unlawful pressure on the legitimate legitimate government in caracas you know remember abrams said and you guys have reported on
11:47 am
this on your show that all options remain on the table with venezuela and it's something off repeated by members of the trump administration including national security advisor john bolton and secretary of state mike pompei o but there's really agreement that military intervention would really be the worse case scenario and unadvisable there are also new questions i should mention here about how to handle venezuelan immigrants seeking asylum in the u.s. president trump and elliott abrams have both advocated for granting emergency asylum for more than seventy thousand venezuelans here in the u.s. they don't have to return to venezuela against their will but there's this wrangling going on between the white house national security council and the trump administration over how to provide such immigration relief with the trump administration's own ongoing immigration crackdown on refugees and asylum seekers so there is that dichotomy going on right now in the administration tyro. this is
11:48 am
a fascinating and frightening picture all at the same time and in a great job in laying that out for us and kind of looking at all the sides of play the last thing that's interesting is we're talking about the would scary of the of the potential for u.s. invasion in the bettas whaler or some kind of problem happening there militarily american airlines has canceled flights to venezuela that's something you don't see very often have they resumed what's the future with this well and this is really intriguing no they have not resumed they american airlines shut down a direct flights to caracas on friday instead the airlines basically using partner affiliates for trips to venezuela you know flying out of miami to say panama city panama and then on words this was an issue for one group the u.s. peace council whose leader buckman assad was on with r.t. earlier today suggested that american is using the cancellations to put pressure on madeira government here's what he said it's interesting listen. though we had no
11:49 am
explanation from american airlines but many of the delegates who were flying out of miami to caracas were told that the flights are canceled because airport is without their electricity but we were in touch with the venezuelan authorities and we knew that the airport was not. without electricity so other airlines were flying in and out of caracas but american airlines just just stopped our. passengers in miami a few about delegates were stuck in miami for and they had to change their tickets to another airline to be able to go to caracas. all right so whether american is using the cancellations as a political tactic remains to be seen but what did happen was that american airlines and again this is an intriguing point listen to this suspended flights to venezuela amid pressure from its pilots union based on the u.s. state department level for travel advisory warning about the country other
11:50 am
countries with a level four advisory include syria libya somalia and afghanistan so there's some debate whether or not venezuela really should be on that list that's another story that said most major airlines have pulled trips to venezuela because of that state department advisory american was the last major u.s. operator to fly to venezuela so you know there are still flights but it's just more expensive logistically time consuming and a lot of questions about that it's a long this is going to go on incredible where we're putting venezuela now in terms of company of other nations thank you very much for that in-depth reporting mr john how to of miami thank you so much. my pleasure thanks. like a bolt from the blue we thought the gods of transparency and accountability had some to say gif down from the heavens back in early march when the new york times headline read disputed n.s.a. phone program is shut down yes the long controversial system that collects and logs u.s. citizens domestic calls and text of george w.
11:51 am
started in edward snowden blew the whistle on the phone records surveillance program that one was finally being shut down or so we thought you did you see despite snowden and glenn greenwald's tweets many experts are now saying that while yes indeed the program may be over but not for the good reasons of transparency and accountability journalists now fees for insurge intelligence writes that quote according to two former top n.s.a. officials interviewed by insurge there is no credible reason to believe that n.s.a. phone surveillance has truly been shutdown to help us sort through all of this shutdown no shutdown maybe a shutdown and all the he said intelligence official said going on here we welcome investigative journalist and founder of truth and media mr bunce one ben thank you for joining us and he tyrrell yeah not all of us believe like a thunderbolt out of the sky that it was going to happen but some some hope for it one that's you know right off the bat i've got to ask is this phone records collection and spying system you know as i mentioned snowden blew the whistle on
11:52 am
greenwald reported on the whole world was watching it is it actually finally no more of the original one that they were talking about is that no longer being used so it couple things number one the n.s.a. is never said officially that it wasn't it was kind of leaked out that they hadn't really used it in the last two years so think about what that says they did not say at any point that they did not believe that this was a good program or useful program even though it hasn't been because it's not netted one single terrorist but what they did say is that well we haven't really used that in two years it doesn't mean they got rid of it it just means that the existing technology. is antiquated and so they have advance what they're doing using new technology wow so was there any indication by the you know the reporting of these two former n.s.a. whistle blowers it was tim drake. thomas drake and russ tice yes as to as to what the kind of what what what might be happening here and what kind
11:53 am
of technology are we talking about moving forward yes so a couple things on that so tice specifically says that he says if anything the n.s.a. no longer needs the particular meditator program that they were using keep in mind when snowden revealed this program in going off for a few years and when he revealed it was twenty thirteen it's been six years i mean how much as has messaging phone data all that advantage in the last six years so it's been tremendous he says they no longer need the particular program to parse the card catalog mehta data and they can mine the content data directly with an enhanced algorithms and processing and strappy and so essentially what tice's saying is look the program they had in the past they didn't stop using it because it was ineffective even though it was they've stopped using it because the technology is as advance to the point where they don't have to collect all this metadata anymore and algorithms are actually performing the same function for them it's also important to note that they're all the reporting of this you know the
11:54 am
fantastic isn't this great news that it's over the n.s.a. has never even once said that the program should go away. well that they shouldn't be using even though they've acknowledged in front of congress again that not one single terrorist not one terrorist operation was ever netted through that program wow you know it's interesting because after that after snowden blew the whistle we you know better have the quote unquote reform of the twenty fifteen usa freedom act that was supposed to kind of rain all this in but really authorize it for another few years that's now coming to an end and twenty nineteen this upcoming december but we've barely heard a whisper about this on capitol hill no one's really talking about is the surveillance state really willing to let this authorization expire or do they need it any more i'm not i'm not sure they necessarily need it and that's i think some of what what journalists are looking at this are really considering is there's been so little talk about it is it really to the point where that the n.s.a.
11:55 am
in the cia they don't really need anything that's been in existence of the past the technology has advanced fast enough and far enough that a lot of what they're doing doesn't require the you know an extension of laws that were created in the past because remember the law in the freedom act was based upon technology if you base the law upon technology it is going to constantly become antiquated and costly need to be revised based upon technology but the law did not do was actually stand up for freedom and actually gave up our freedom that's why it was ironic that it was called the freedom act it was afraid that that was the loss of freedom act and so until we get back to laws that protect civil liberties and not deal with direct technology it's always going to become a most definitely but i'm swan thank you so much for coming on and talking with those with us about this report mr always a pleasure carol thanks. look for those of us who grew up with
11:56 am
a drastic park childhood we've been waiting for cloned beasts from the past crammed into amusement park zoo for quite some time now enter the brilliant scientists who using female mouse eggs were able to kickstart twenty eight thousand year old woolly mammoth cells. yes the memory cells awaken for a short period of time falling short of cell division though due to the incredibly damaged nuclei from this ancient ancient engine cell and while we are still far away from resurrecting these ancient beasts of the ice age let's let's not forget that we also have to work to save the great be so far present before some day in the future our children's children's children's children's children's children's are stuck trying to resurrect the lions the rhinos and the bear the we're losing today ladies and gentlemen that is our show for you today remember everyone in this world we are not told the real up and up so it's all you all i love you i am tyrrel ventura keep on watching those talks and have a great day and night everybody. breaks
11:57 am
it down. for. a shadow to get up on a soldier that. was honestly had left foot on the ground there was no one. else of usha. hospitalist. you. were just there a second how you and the sound and resentment and anger kept you going to me to the past six months out there or isn't and never was enough to post the next.
11:58 am
i would hope to. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. or some want to refer. to going to proceed with what before three of the more people. i'm interested in the waters of. course. you know i can say that i own for example all the brooklyn bridge and i and i sell
11:59 am
a bond against the brooklyn bridge myself a billion dollar multibillion dollar bond against the brooklyn bridge club actually somebody's going to come in they say ok well deliver them the brooklyn bridge and i say why can't i have a deed just like in the two thousand a subprime crisis there were no deeds for the houses that goldman sachs package says collateralized brokers obligations and then sold into the question mark and then the wholesale derivatives market where they didn't have the deed they were just making stuff up by pulling rabbits out of their hat selling that as a yielding security to pension funds but there's nothing. i've. done to. my injury i am sure it. was shut down i i've. got a plan that. i.
12:00 pm
want my own heart. her headline story the only leader two of rules right through from. his resignation president. early. on fridays my. political views it savory. if i put certain stories about certain political issues i am shadow so. what my concern is when they continue to ban these kinds of things can ban this kind of stuff that's only going to perpetuate shadow. with
12:01 pm
a new set of sanctions.
