10:00 am
it's just. a report. for. the attorney general there was no collusion. russian government sponsored legally interfere with. the campaign or other americans. coming up on the program this. aid groups. are refusing to. support for the. intervention
10:01 am
in yemen we hear what people in new york city think. it's terrible. and indigenous people in northern territory. parliaments. that could be directly impacted. every hour of the day this is international warm welcome from our newsroom studio.
10:02 am
i mean in o'neal within the hour the miller reports on trumped russia collusion will be officially released the u.s. attorney general william barr is right now holding a news conference where he's already reiterated that there was no collusion between the trump campaign russia but said there was interference. do you will see the special counsel's report states that his quote investigation did not establish that members of the trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the russian government in its election interference activities. well the release of the mula report brings to a close a two year investigation into alleged russian links to donald trump's campaign team during the twenty sixteen presidential election lots of money spent lots of talking now there were thirty four indictments but not one of them was connected to the alleged collusion last month
10:03 am
a summary of the investigation said there was no evidence to suggest trump conspired with moscow that wasn't enough for the democrats though to try and go reports even the release of the full document is unlikely to put the accusations to bed. it was clear almost immediately that u.s. attorney general william barr wouldn't get away with just a letter to congress when the trump paving army saw or heard the words no collusion all they wanted was the full molar papers the big days arrived kind of i'll remind you of how exactly mr barr gave the ok i will be in a position to move forward expeditiously in determining what can be released in light of. regulations and department to policies it looks like quite a few lines will be redacted william barton came up with four specific categories
10:04 am
to be blacked out let's whip through those you won't see anything known as grand jury material info that could affect on go and legal cases. that could damage the privacy or interests of third parties and finally. intelligence gathering sources and methods the left wings grip on the idea that donald trump obstructed justice is so tight that perhaps all that's left visible in the moeller report won't be enough for them anyway remember rachel maddow questioned blitz last month what attorney general william barr has just given to congress really does raise a lot of questions that we never thought we would be asking i think about how this investigation is being resolved i bet she'll have many more after thursday's release the good news for the russia gaiters in the bar letter was the part that
10:05 am
said the russians still tried to interfere even without any kind of collusion the special counsel's investigation determined that there were two main russian efforts to influence the twenty sixteen election and obviously in that bar baby memo there was no room for evidence of all the shady dealings the moeller team has already triggered legal action against a russian company supposedly a meddling force without explaining to the firm's lawyers what they're using as proof for the indictment why that info is too sensitive to be given out does that ring a bell what if the russians get hold of it plus nobody ever properly explained how it was found that russia hacked the democrat servers if investigators didn't get access to the actual d.n.c. hardware there will be those who want to get answers to questions way off rachel
10:06 am
maddow is list but remember the rules sensitive almost certainly means redacted. all right let's get the thoughts nod chris bambery chris is a political analyst joins us live on the program chris bill bar as reiterated there was no collusion between from russia just seen. tweet by the president trump. game of thrones they're saying game over but is it going to satisfy democrats. oh no i don't is going to satisfy democrats but they have a problem because normally this report which does say the president struck to justice rude in normal circumstances put the president in some difficulties however we're not in normal circumstances because the democrats particular there were hillary clinton wing of the democratic party hyped this up so much and because it was saw much talk of possible impeachment of donald trump this falls sore for short
10:07 am
of that that any truck misdoings which are funded by him or report are not going to be of any great in importance i feel so i think because they hyped it up so much they're going to pay a price as a consequence we should see a more thorough breakdown in iran sixty minutes time the report is due to be released but the democrats are right which is that the report will be redacted we can just take a listen to what's been said on that are together. it's only general barr has thrown out his credibility and the deal which is independence with his single minded effort to protect doesn't trump above all else the american people deserve the truth not a sanitized version of the miller report approved by the trumpet ministration the so-called attorney general is presiding over a dog and pony show here's a thought release the miller report tomorrow morning and keep your mouth shut you have zero credibility. once again blair wants to shape the public's perception of the report this isn't top of reports secretly briefed the white house this is not
10:08 am
justice just be are on the assumption that it's heavily redacted we will most certainly issue the subpoenas in very short order some big democratic names coming out about there including nancy pelosi on this chris they essentially are saying barr cannot be trusted to provide an accurate account of mueller's findings does the reduction justify the suspicion. but i would support the reduction anyway but i have to see if there was a democratic president this is what would happen anyway and most people would but i think again this is a there is a problem here because these statements will play ok with a certain section of the democratic party support but i have no influence whatsoever on trump's supporters who wouldn't give one st's it don't trump was actually colluding with a foreign power and only paying attention to this they voted trump because they wanted to make america great again to bring back jobs etc and they saw hillary
10:09 am
clinton as being part of a self-serving a wheat which had done the movie for the price for four decades and you know they're not a bit interested in any of this so we're talking here about it again is unusual circumstances in sam's united states of america but i think donald trump is going to get away with this precisely because the democrats have overplayed their hand and because actually and you hear them talking about it that most people think well if you were in the oval office you do exactly the same in fact occurred helping twenty twenty is the other an aspect of this as well to be taken into account that if all this two years of money spent endless talk and a proof that donald trump did nothing wrong that he could be in line as very much odds on favorite to win the election again. well i think the other interesting thing is and i mean it is that in terms of the search for a. democratic nomination this will play into bernie sanders his hand because he has
10:10 am
stayed out of this game and is going to be unaffected by it and in my opinion is sanders by countering donald trump's agenda over bringing back jobs to the rust belt reviving the american economy and saw improve forward health care and other propositions it's sanders who's the candidate that trump fears because if he faces a known inside of the democratic party he can just play that same card again this is a candidate of the elite i'm somehow despite being a very rich man i'm not a member of that elite vote for me vote for the american people sanders can counter that so i think the democrats of course shot themselves in the foot in this will play to the one candidate that the establishment the democratic party do not want to be the presidential candidate which is bernie sanders. just finally host them across have launched their own investigation into issues related to the miller inquiry do you think that the will turn something up of substance at
10:11 am
all. what do they think is still there or do you think. i don't know what they think is that they're looking for a smoking gun which will essentially be donald trump sitting across the table from some russian who's promising a social media campaign to win the election forum and i don't think they're going to fighting there are they so this is what we've been what they've been looking for for two years and it suggests to me that it's not out there and you know when we're talking as well about a cover up we should remember that sections of the american states the security community etc were very anti trump at the beginning they presume we have tone heaven or hell to find out of this that such evidence exists and i haven't been able to find it so suggestively after all this time all this money all this effort if that smoking gun is not has not been found then it's never going to be found is this a new norm though that this kind of way of of whatever happens just throw noise out an issue hoping something will stick whether it's right or otherwise that this is
10:12 am
what we're going to be seeing this is the future essentially. i think that's partly right and i think donald trump has played that game social media plays to that you know you through so much mud some of the eventually stick but there's another way of looking at it as well in other you know another part of the world and elsewhere we've seen that when people don't play that game and talk about you know we don't want negative campaigns i want to seriously address the agenda which is worrying you the voter hole jobs homes health exception that actually that can play well which is goes a long way to explain why bernie sanders did so well even though in the end he was the night the nomination in the last presidential election a wide donald trump as i repeat the point must be worried about a sign this challenge chris thanks for your time this hour chris bambery political analyst live on the program. ok let's stay here stateside but another big issue today donald trump has refused to end america's support for the saudi led
10:13 am
intervention in yemen the united states billions of dollars worth of arms to the coalition forces for the ongoing airstrikes against the rebels now all coincides with warnings of a civilian cholera epidemic in the country with two thousand suspected cases recorded every day four years of intense fighting have created what aid agencies say is the world's worst humanitarian crisis. on the trumpet ministration has faced bitter criticism for authorizing military
10:14 am
supplies to saudi arabia has been with more of the background president donald trump was elected on promises of u.s. involvement in the wars around the world great nations do not fight endless wars. but he is not particularly came in stopping us help to saudi arabia and its debt link campaign against the amah. i am returning here with without my approval a joint resolution that proposed to direct the president to remove united states armed forces from him still it sees in or affecting the republic of yemen with so it's an exceptions probably used his presidential power to shoot down a resolution from congress but sought to end the u.s. involvement in the four year war since twenty fifteen the saudi led coalition along
10:15 am
with the united states has been waging a deadly campaign against the rebels and their allies in yemen what more in march saudi arabia pledged a billion dollars to yemen while denying any culpability in the humanitarian crisis there pressure to end u.s. support escalated after the killing of jamal khashoggi a saudi journalist inside of riyadh's embassy in turkey the united states will no longer participate in the saudi lead. in the saudi led into vention in yemen which has caused the worst humanitarian crisis on earth limiting americans engagement in this war which is going on far too long we all agree but these cross party appeals fell on deaf ears barely denting trumps love for his favorite middle eastern monarchs tony arabia and i get along great with all of them they buy apartments for me they spend forty million sixty million of my
10:16 am
supposed to dislike him i like him very much but to be fair trump is certainly not the first u.s. president to lavish his affection on to the kingdom's rulers the united states and saudi arabia as of strong important friendship and he knows and i know that. the fact that he has chosen to take this first visit. to the united states is indicative of friendship between the united states and saudi arabia but where do the american people stand they want to. u.s. alliance with saudi arabia it's terrible i'm against that for the u.s. to have a stands in financial support for such conflicts kind of says something that i'm not sure we really want to betray the message there's a lot of civilians that are paying the price for games that politicians tend to play i was a saloon fluids with the saudis so i will be surprise about it just grew just how's
10:17 am
the saudi works the u.s. relationship with saudi arabia boils down to billions of dollars in oil imports and weapons sales it's long been fundamental to u.s. foreign policy when it comes to the middle east region however now in the era of trump it seems pretty clear that certain voices are getting pretty sick of it caleb mopp and r.t. new york. international char achieve in a region refugee council saying is donald trump a peach will only mean more suffering and more deaths. the united states has an obligation as one of the leading nations and being a main supporter of the coalition but also as one of the top donors of the yemeni humanitarian response it has a responsibility to make sure that the vivian's are protected the reality is otherwise we see that the u.s. is not holding this out do not go audition in any way. for the attacks on civilians
10:18 am
we are talking about the disproportionate. some ports by the united states towards one party but it's going to take that is the cell do that for additional moves like this one as mr saddam. was last had in any way in freezing confidence on the ground and then leading to the. did this just exacerbate things except suffering more and more weapons will mean more that yemeni citizens were going down under after the break stay with art international. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy. let it be an arms race. and spearing dramatic development that only mostly i'm going to
10:19 am
resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time time to sit down and talk. you know world the big partisan group. and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door. and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now we're watching closely watching the hawks.
10:20 am
twenty minutes into the program welcome back a group of fracking protesters in australia have come up with a novel way to get their message across. government need to listen up wrecking a country i'm putting you know water. this is what we bring this is had the killing and country. well for some time critics have been saying fracking has a huge impact on the environment including causing possible earthquakes because of
10:21 am
the high pressure used to extract the oil on the gas from the rock below it also increases the risk of oil spills on pollution something that can lead to various health problems australia's northern territory a nonstop moratorium on fracking back in september twenty sixth in but the ban was lifted last year with the government investing over eight million australian dollars which is by six million u.s. dollars to accelerate the development of the industry they say will create thousands of jobs and help the country's economy however environmentalists scream sawyer has significant thoughts about those things. bizarre whole range of respect is and that's one of the problems the us additional really concerned about is that the war that could be directly impacted in the short while this is fracking not only threatens a lot of legal in their ability to drink water it also threatens their cultural knowledge and information and their cultural practices but the northern territory government is in pretty bad style there's a lot of it's economy and so the thinking that might be able to use this is
10:22 am
a way to increase activity but the evidence would suggest other was the jobs question is really an interesting one because research had a coin. for every ten jobs they created it was recognize free they lost twenty four jobs that were just received the area is some really big questions that need to be answered around those things as well as the environmental concerns. all right time to talk sports non football we're following all the drama in this week's champions league former manchester united boss joe say marino has been giving his breakdown of all the action including his views on the controversial video assistant referee you can watch the latest episode of on the touchline and a few hours on this channel here's a preview for now though. i've
10:23 am
never seen again i kid yeah. i do with. the referee. in the. pool in a consensus. only the via is the controversy i think they got it right i think in the world cup final they got it wrong the view you have should be to take some pressure from the referee in the us to be putting his hands a big decision i look also to the coaching perspective always it possible at a champions league level so many mistakes together in the short in a short period of time so many mistakes come on they cannot feel pressure and that's the level we are speaking about the best players in the world the best clubs in in the world a player that they absolutely love i think is phenomenal eriksson makes
10:24 am
a mistake that he would never forget them is live for play against. in the way they want to play you have the risk that they are better than you i think until this moment nobody really i don't like the words piers but nobody really respect them all the teams in the semifinals they have the creativity here they have the score there but they have a top class center the fender and the disc in the league. very very good here here here here here here here north here feed me nor saddam i there they scored in this corner and they score it's also possible that you are going to seize this is not my football this is my football and this is the way i want my teams to play the season they are in the semifinals weed in my opinion fifty percent chances
10:25 am
of being in the final i would say so we've got messi old city liverpool favorite i never say messi is the special one in here because everything it does you does all the time and when messi has the ball one one one. you are that i am here working we do but i am still the members are. i have to defend them ease them without display as you wouldn't be them but ease them and. ever wondered what the kaiser reports view of breaks it is we've heard everybody else's so why not marxists what's next. best's drugs were at her cocaine as were four bucks for the under fifty it's
10:26 am
a good job everybody use cocaine crack cocaine you can smoke it this is worth like fifteen thirty. twenty. score came to this is about a fifteen dollar bet and people smoke this one i got bigger second sweetie you go on these drugs in any city in the united states that you all along as you or want to get about the. i make money. and that's what i do every day. when you'll make just manufacture consent instinctive public wealth. when the ruling class is to protect themselves. when the financial merry go round lifts only the one percent.
10:27 am
we can all middle of the room signals. i mean real news is really. what politicians do. they put themselves on the line they get accepted or rejected . so when you want to be president. or somehow want to. have to be right to be for us it's like them before three of them or can't be good that i'm interested always in the waters of how the. question.
10:28 am
i am max kaiser this is the kaiser report you know we talk from time to time about the casino. about the trend in technology and government to enslave the global population behind devices and to be consigned to life of clicking on ads for scooby snacks and the second you stop clicking on those ads you die and you get to the platform going off the grid and. jeff bezos sends in a drone to carry away your ashes well as more on the story of stacy well max you were around on the internet and in fact an internet entrepreneur during the first dotcom boom remember back in the ninety's you also went and you saw john perry barlow author of the declaration of independence for cyberspace and back in those days the new ssion that the government or any corporation could stop
10:29 am
this explosion of freedom and free expression and the libertarian ideals of the early internet would have been laughed at but now we have allowed essentially just two or three corporations to pretty much control the entire online experience and lo and behold we have this headline from bloomberg internet consolidation opened the door to censorship titans like facebook google and apple defeat the purpose of a decentralized web the british government released proposals this week to hold online and social media platforms responsible for harmful content a few decades ago we might have scoffed at anyone who even thought they could regulate what. people say on the internet no longer today the centralization of platforms and services providers makes them foresman surprisingly easy it's just
10:30 am
a matter of picking which layer of the text tack to hold accountable but you know pollution survival of the fittest relies on mutations and mutations come about through spontaneous. combustion if you will or spontaneity accidental collisions clar. and this is what makes us human now online censorship censoring the platform the primary platform in which we communicate means the end of evolution it means the extinction of humans as we know them and the beginning of this casino gleg era where our humanity has been destroyed but only purpose is to click on ads so yes it does seem like the matrix in a lot of ways we are the batteries that power a few corporations revenue model and the hackers of the internet era of the
10:31 am
ninety's and the entrepreneurs at that time.
