7:30 am
and the world witnessed the coup here in the united states the response to the up people in libya around the political spectrum from democratic presidential kind of bernie sanders tweeting out i'm very concerned about what appears to be a coup in bolivia where the military after weeks of political unrest intervened to remove president ever morales the u.s. must call for an end to violence and support to libya's democratic institutions and of course u.s. president donald trump he stepped in the plot of the bolivian military announcing in a white house statement quote these events send a strong signal to the illegitimate regimes in venezuela nicaragua that democracy in the will of the people will always prevail so today my friends let's dive right into the current events taking place in bolivia in the powerful political forces in ideologies fighting for control of the nations of south america as we start watching the hawks.
7:31 am
like you that i got. with. well nobody watching the hawks i am tyrrel with her and joining me to discuss the recent political events in the libya the fall out and how it affects other nations in the region as r.t. america producer and ph d. in latin american history of ricotta rivera and coming to us from caracas in venezuela as coordinating committee member the black alliance for peace that freeman thank you vote but gentlemen both for joining me i want to start with you not but what is the general sentiment you know on the ground in venezuela given that similar coup attempts of recently happened in that country and president trump you know issuing this one some would say award. to venezuela nicaragua that they
7:32 am
could be next. how do you were they saying on the ground there. well people are 4 or 5 people are they know that this is their process and they also see in solidarity with the people of bolivia they stand there with the people with the people believe you today there was a massive demonstration in support of the people bolivia and evo morales is the newly elected president of that country in the leadership of their country is a mass demonstration in caracas that was both bolivia and also in solidarity with right here with one arm attending the. of the congress international congress of african descendants. the black a wire and so on and a lot of statements were made the black alliance for produce came out you know the group you're part of they came out and b a p is not surprised by this desperate attempt on the part of the global reaction
7:33 am
led by the u.s. to stem the tide of progress of the belem brothers was a very progressive leader this attempt on you went on to say this temple it confirms where there can be no up and peace without social justice and for justice the oppressed must fight for it let me ask you why did the black eyes reproduce come out in support of morality beyond that statement what do you see taking place there but you believe in your group needs to support. well i think right now the powers that be donald trump and even the elite emboli and bolivia are seeing a threat to their historic colonialist money and still they are trying to recapture that with this you know they see the tide of leftist governments and leftist movements taking taking root in latin america as threatening their heads of money and now and also we're seeing economy the global economy of new run you know led by new liberal policies being unsustainable so with the couple coupling of the
7:34 am
unsustainability of the of the global economic system and the illegitimacy of the leadership there and the governments or the movements there are largely the formerly colonized people and business black and brown people taking over they see that as a threat and so we know that they're going to always come after that and try to you know reverse that and then we also have to look at it in what it means the united states from just announced the police surge against black and brown communities and no one is talking about that and so we don't we can't be surprise about. that but we also know that we have to forge an internationalist movement against new liberalism against white supremacy and capitalism that actually ends this crazy unjust and unsustainable system once and for all what's interesting about that true and when you bring that up is that there were several videos online showed supporters of the crew in the in the removal of. burning the indigenous flag of the
7:35 am
people they're claiming believe you are now you know belongs to christ and old and bibles and is this indicative of the politics behind those repurpose reading this group. oh it certainly is indicative of that i mean they've held contempt for it will move around in them and largely and does in this population the bolivia ever since that movement came to power and started resisting even before it will morales and started talking about control of the water and control of the or at least respect of rather than as they put it respect of the planet and nature and so they help contempt for that and so they really represent the paradigm of the pan european we referred to as the pan european project and the us nato axis of domination you could also add the e.u.'s thing yes so they really are the descendants of the spanish conquistadores and have held power and they are really
7:36 am
seeing this and this is how they look at the popular movements not forgot to say i want to thank you so much for coming on from caracas and but as well it's not it's not often you get to hear from you know how you know the events in one country affect its neighboring countries in that region especially when they're both you know kind of under tragically in the crosshairs of the u.s. state department and try to change the governments there thank you so much for joining us today. thank you. this is a fascinating situation going on and whether you're heard from on the ground over caracas nearby i want to ask you the oas the organization of american states claims there were irregular. and fraud and believes elections that's the kind of basis that all of this started out however the d.c. based center for economic and policy research says there is no evidence for this claim and even put out an extensive report backing as we're in the 1st rounds of the election so why exactly it's interesting tell me about these elections and you
7:37 am
know the controversy there but also why would morales resign when it's really about the elections why not just hold another round. yeah i mean well he didn't resign because they have enough to as enough to said this is a coup you know he was forced to resign by the military. you know i think it's important to take a step back and look at who the oas is so the oas has been criticized pretty much sense since inception as basically serving as a tool for u.s. political interests in the hemisphere particularly south of the border and the way its headquarters is based in washington and the head of the. model has been particularly particularly aggressive in following us imperial lines basically in the region so that's who's saying that these that these are illegitimate elections and so it's rather expected that they would do this. you
7:38 am
know. there were 2 weeks of protests you know in bolivia after this won the election there was never any question that he would win the election he was ahead in every poll in bolivia the question was would he win by the 10 percent margin that is necessary in order to avoid a runoff so the the question is did he win by 10 percent or 7 percent wow wow and then. it's what they kind of based of these protests is whether 7 or 10 percent and now suddenly the military steps in and says ok you know we need you to resign i don't i want to ask those what was the military's motivation for that you know what what what was there why did they why were they against us what he'd been president for 4 terms that is the $1000000.00 question and so it is strongly suspected and it's we if we use history as our guide the military it's clear that they betrayed the president the question is why did they betray the president. in
7:39 am
the past when there have been leaders leftist leaders in latin america basically since going back since 1954 and the coup arbenz in guatemala every time there's been a coup against a left this leader since then in latin america the united states has been intricately involved in its planning and its financing and in often times even in this execution this is the will of the kind of see how that plays out and what more information develops to see if the same thing possibly happened here corporate media is focused hard on the opposition with little mention of their politics being this kind of very far right wing. politics they've also completely ignored the indigenous bolivians who support morales he was the 1st indigenous president there that's why you have popularity has there been a large response or demonstrations in support of morales in bolivia is right now i think a lot of most of the media most people are seeing only the the time was right is right and i think the more or less the supporters have been out since the start
7:40 am
really. and there have been clashes between opposition supporters and government supporters and police kind of caught in the middle. right now again this wasn't this was this was expected but what i was is by far the most popular politician in bolivia he's also the most divisive politician in bolivia but we knew that his his followers which are plenty which are a majority. of the population would come out and and in opposition to this. and it's important to know it's indigeneity race that history is certainly very important but it's important also to remember that bolivia really is the economic miracle of south america they've been they've achieved sustained sustainable 4 percent every year annual growth for the past several years and experts would
7:41 am
argue that it's sustainable growth you know and that they're really laying a good foundation for the future in the meantime drastically drastically cutting down on poverty and that is where one of the interesting aspects of this is that you really get that sense of this was a guy who was changing society down there. may be against it but it seems excited to help the least fortunate in that society and now he's no longer in charge of that it's going to be interesting to see how this goes i want to thank you so much for coming out and talking with us today about it and bringing your knowledge of history that or the world on the show today thank you so much for your thanks for. all right as we're going to a clock watcher don't forget to let us know what you think of the topics with our social media and be sure to check out watching the hawks the podcast which is now available at spotify apple music everywhere you made us into your favorite or. ever podcast covering up homeland security has been sucking up massive amounts of travelers biometric data and lionel of lateral media joins us to discuss the clear present dangers that come from that you don't want to miss to stay tuned for
7:42 am
watching the whole. deal or or specter of socialism 30 years after the fall of the berlin wall social and is now remarkably popular. it explains this how to explain why so many successful even privileged people look to socialism to solve social problems maybe it's because liberalism itself is failing. time after time called parishioners repeat the same mantra sustainability it's very
7:43 am
important it's accelerating transitions to sustainable prize board sustainability stay number man at a more equitable and sustainable well. they claim that production is completely hama's. kakadu to congress numbers and got it into something companies want us to feel good about buying their products while the damage is being done far away and this isn't an elvis that's the point anyone and i mean look. this is the moon and you missed me doing to me man i'm stunned seemed i mean the best understood look to see when. your government and our government and all the other major governments of the world
7:44 am
know what's going to and when it's going to. but they haven't told you and they haven't told me they haven't announced. imagine something as big as the earth. is going to cause tidal waves earthquakes volcanoes erupt and it's going to chill. so very for a while right. my great grandfather's quote. nobody would care about the law or prison so you'd have wallace though should have. a turtle life between now and the. what were you up to back on october 30th hawk watchers where your carbon pumpkins are tried on costumes as you prepared for all the wiener maybe you were celebrating
7:45 am
your birthday like i was. or were you attending the department of homeland security industry day where from 9 11 am guests were treated to the latest on the d h s is modernization and transform a nation efforts including this little nugget that homeland security will soon have biometric data on nearly 260000000 people us courts is reporting that according to a recent presentation from the agency's office of procurement operations the u.s. department of homeland security expects to have face fingerprint and iris scans of at least 259000000 people in its biometrics database by 2022 right around the corner in fact according to figures quoted by the electronic frontier foundation that's roughly 40000000 more than the agency's 2017 projections. talk about exceeding the desired goal my friends d.h. as you get an a plus for effort in the d. minus for respecting all of our privacy if these numbers hold this would make the size of the biometrics collection is maintained by the d
7:46 am
h s the 2nd largest in the world only behind india's biometric id network well joining me now to eliminate the good the bad the ugly of homeland security's wonderful collection of biometric data is a legal video slide out of wyoming always a pleasure sir and happy belated birthday thank you yes what a present. lionel what are some of the potential abuses we could see as a result from the d.a. just holding this much biometric data on over 260000000 people and we have a couple of things i call them lionel's law and no one if it's 260000000 it's 500000000 it's whatever it is it's underestimated the number that you if you're reading about it now it's 5 years old so they never ever rolled anything out. here is the problem that most people have so what. i would them to keep us there called the partner to homeland security what do you want ok what do they want
7:47 am
if they want my face what do i have to hide you for that would do. it's hard to explain to somebody but if i was the most evil person in the world and i would have the most incredible government i want to know who is every single person how can i monitor them because if i'm honored to you if i know where you are i've imprisoned you know if i know i don't need to put you anywhere i can just follow you so i'm going to create the biggest massive collection of data from every possible vector you can imagine phones social media in driver's life and information iris scans fingerprints voice friends we're going to go to social credit pretty soon too that's going to happen so i put this together and i am able to create this thing now tyrell what happens if this is happening into one of the questions i want to ask you about because you know when you think about it you can
7:48 am
worry about government misuse right right but what about the abuse of hackers we remember back in june a federal contractor with customs and border patrol got hit with a cyber attack and maybe it was like those tens of thousands of photos used in the facial recognition of the border patrol you know and that's a very real scary thought not only that let's throw into the mix d.n.a. because people for some reason in this country want to find out if they're scandinavian and i don't know why so they go like this so we have in addition to this now one day he ever got one of those those alerts from a credit watch this is your name your e-mail we have come up with a black site what if somebody says it was ventura your d.n.a. . may have there is a person who is you not posing to be you but but you we can't think that far now here's the best part when they go from there and they always give it a snappy intil detour there was only one jack going to us going to go from this to
7:49 am
something run by amazon based clouds we're seeing exactly happening that's why they're sucking all of this up right now you're giving this to jeff bezos and all of these people work and i meet this b. be a little too conspiratorial voyeur but i firmly believe in suspect that government and corporations this is the definition of fascism so there's a merge ing of the 2 so it's like i'm not going to give the f.b.i. my information but amazon they don't mind amazon is my friend they deliver stuff that i buy but the f.b.i. i'm afraid of but the one in the state they're one of the same you know it's interesting the electronic frontier foundation says the evidence suggests that the d.h.s.s. you do and this isn't just here in the u.s. as around the world they're collecting all this the d h s could start tracking people from the moment they begin to research potential travel plans that's where they get a lot of this biometric data you cross the border on a plane you go to put your face or you passport all about the take the picture. they might be able to start traveling tracking you from the moment you enter in do
7:50 am
i want to visit chicago if i'm coming from the netherlands or i want to go to paris you know and then they start tracking you in fact this is what i think appreciate this the deal just report that there's a number was found him so the only way for an individual to ensure he or she is not subject to the collection of biometric information when traveling internationally is to refrain from traveling right. now i'm sorry is this the language and actions of a free country or a security state pretending to oh yes it was a search for somebody's got to go a step further we're going to go into telepathic communications ok one of the things that darpa figured out a while back is how to read minds and what they did was they could put a little piece of tape around the this particular part of the throat and there are micro vocalisations that occur when people think they can actually figure out what people are thinking because you are seeing things even though your mouth is a movie the 2 are connected now have you ever been looking at your laptop or
7:51 am
thought about something maybe you've said hey i'll go benny died and i was a grave insurance or or whatever eventual the i may be paranoid but just because i'm paranoid doesn't mean i. would have to be i swear to you i will be thinking something just thinking something and it shows i'm now. when this happens remember they want to know everything they take the data you put it into some huge place and some desert and anything they want to pull and call and coley from you they've got it including what you're thinking where you're going where you've been the people that you know they will have a 247 world view pan up to come on of the entire world where you don't need walls you're in a prison and you think you're free but i know where you go with whom you go what you think where you buy how much money you have your data your genome
7:52 am
everything you wonder why we do shows like this and we try to warn them of these kind of things that i don't thank you so much for able to always a pleasure sir all right ladies and gentlemen there is a new whistleblower in town but this time it's not the pentagon the cia or n.s.a. that is getting called out for their dubious actions no this time it's those foreign hardworking folks at google who according to the whistleblower have been secretly transferring into their greedy little files the personal medical data of up to 50000000 americans from the 2nd largest healthcare provider in the united states or to sperm from those more. project nightingale the secretive program brought together google and the health care giant ascension although collects patient medical records across $21.00 states now you're probably wondering when this all started well it kicked off collecting data last year but it's picked up in recent months about 150 google employees have access to this data access to tens of millions of patients including their names date of birth health records lab results
7:53 am
and doctor diagnoses so basically your complete medical history all without your consent now of course google says it's strictly looking at its data all to develop an app to track patients and recommend treatments but back in 2008 the tech giant launched a google health but that went bust less than 4 years later because surprise. is no one wanted to willingly hand over their health records to google well former national security agency contractor edward snowden who leaked classified information from the n.s.a. back in 2013 he says what tech giants are doing is abuse yes these people are engaged in abuse particularly when you look at a google and amazon spoke. their business model is appears and yet every bit of it they argue is legal while both ascension and google say that sharing these medical records secretly is completely legal under u.s. federal law and that it follows the 1906 health insurance portability and
7:54 am
accountability or hipaa laws where hospitals and health care providers are allowed to pass data to business partners without telling the patients as long as it helps the hospital or the provider carry out its health care functions both google and ascension insist that all necessary safeguards to protect patient privacy is in place but again snowden says not so fast there are your customers or whether they're your citizens so long as it never leaks so long as only you are in control of what is the sort of stolen from everybody. and i would say not only is that incorrect but if we learned anything from 2013 it's that eventually everything leaks. ok so you may or may not be part of ascension health but take a look at your wrist you have a fit bit well google just bought the maker of the fitness tracking device grabbing the data of some 28000000 users where some of that data goes beyond the number of
7:55 am
steps you take a day some users can even link their medical or their insurance records now google has said it will never hand over fit information to 3rd parties but that's a phrase that we've heard by several companies who said the same thing like facebook and it turns out they did it for watching the hawks i'm fair in front zack . everyone everyone stealing our information this is just breaking my heart all right this week so i rare celestial about hawk watchers which were many of us was a once in a lifetime moment mercury the smallest and innermost planet in our solar system was maimed after the roman messenger of the gods and was orbit around the sun only last about $87.00 days made a remarkable journey across the face of the sun in the member of the 11. this epic 5.5 hour transit that you're seeing here gave us earthlings and in the americas africa and europe with the right kind of binoculars solar fitted telescopes
7:56 am
a pentasa stick fantastic display of that little dot you see travel across the sun right there that is the planet of mercury and display that sadly we will not see again until 20322032 yes when i am on my 53rd trip around the sun and so i ask you all how many trips will you have made by then when mercury decides to cross over the sun once again and give us these fantastic fantastic displays. all my friends. alas that is our show for you today remember everyone in this world we are told that we are loved enough so i tell you all of. them to keep on watching all of those hawks out there have a great. time
7:57 am
after time corporations repeat the same mantra sustainability it's very important to accelerate the transition to sustainable transport sustainability and a more equitable and sustainable well. they claim their production is completely hama's. companies want us to feel good about buying their products while the damage is
7:58 am
being done far away this is again this as he didn't even as i mean look. we didn't even i'm starting to seem to me understood it's going in. to my hardest to a dash or sticker but it. does show up in the some of. the design of the bin. laden or ricky. system and that's. the same kind of issue because the lesson on telly officiality make us tell us if there's a bug because suddenly one day my mother but it has been
