10:30 pm
the senator from kentucky was on the floor and i will say before i read this if there's objection you are achieving the objectives of let me put. ok let's get into some of the details of this and what it actually means and cross live to earl rosmah centerless executive director at the eurasia center in washington d.c. hello to you or from the outset of this you've got the f.b.i. expressing concern over revealing classified intelligence why would trump give the green light to release the memo i think. there's a couple different things i mean obviously the feeds you know he's frustrated with russia gate. investigation of which after a year and a half we have no evidence whatsoever and now what we've got is actually evident tax. that i at least the ones i've seen so far that have been released clearly showing
10:31 pm
a bias and collusion. within the. unfortunately within the high level senior levels of one of our. our fundamental organizations the f.b.i. the justice department and i think i think what he's concerned about here is i personally don't think anything in the memos probably is that embarrassing yes is that again will it threaten national security i don't think so so the classification is probably more because it sensitive information and the president has the authority to release that. and i think he wants to kind of show transparency in and and release it so it's available so what they've found out is actually transparent on what's going on and unfortunately it's it's very disturbing what's what's been going on democrats say that the chairman of the highest intelligence committee devan nunez altered the memo off to the committee voted to release it however as our correspondent just explaining uniphase the changes were
10:32 pm
minor and indeed some of them were in force or brought abide by suggestions from the democrats yourself your thoughts on not aspect of things yeah there probably and and i'm sure that that is probably the case is that from understanding a request the changes came from the demo the democrats themselves as well as from the f.b.i. . you know would we hope that something like this before to actually release to the public is is completely reviewed. absolutely. will you get concurrence from the democratic side to release it absolutely not this is highly politicized the whole everything has been politicized since the beginning of this on both sides talking about. as you mentioned there the democrats main claim is that trump sees the memo released as a way to discredit the investigation into alleged russian interference in the
10:33 pm
twenty sixteen elections how likely is that then. i i think i think it's interesting it's because i mean look who's involved with this you've got. mr struck who's very senior who was actually appointed who was involved with the clinton vesta geisha and writing the. non charges against her he was involved with the original russia investigation as well and his. his colleague or very close colleague i might say miss page i mean there are there are there are the one that's underneath this and there's i mean we actually have information showing. going back and forth plus you've got mr mccabe who just stepped down and probably should have stepped down earlier but. it's ok yeah it. it's all out there it needs much more to it so the question is will it be all i
10:34 pm
care do you think do you believe that the whole document will be released at present time said it's going to happen in friday so in a matter of hours or will it be redacted to accommodate the f.b.i.'s many concerns about revealing classified info. i think. i mean they're saying they're going to release it completely but i. i would i would just just from working in the classified area previously i i would think there would be some redactions let's hope it's not completely redacted but but i do see it getting release will it release friday i don't you know i'm not sure on that but i think special if you need some redactions it'll probably be delayed willig i even had doubts that it would be released at all but it looks like it will but i think we may have some reductions in after release the member who seems to be fast approaching by the sound of things anyway earl runs misson executive director at eurasia center thanks
10:35 pm
for your thoughts this hour thank you. germany's domestic intelligence chief is raising the alarm over children of us law mixtape finders that have been brought to germany he say's the youngsters are living time bombs that can be used in terror plots inside the country with more and not bitter all over. well the old muhsin said the children all german parents who went off to join isis in iraq syria pose a potential security threat when or if they return back here to germany in fact he went as far as to refer to them in some cases as ticking time bombs they were confronted early with islamic state ideology learned to fight and were in some cases forced to participate in the abuse of prisoners or even the killing of prisoners we have to consider that these children could be living time bombs there is a danger that these children come back brainwashed with a mission to carry out attacks or mustn't also went on to say that there was
10:36 pm
a whole network of online isis headhunters looking to recruit and radicalize potentially vulnerable children islamic state uses headhunters who scour the internet for children to can be approached and tries to radicalize these children or recruit these children for terrorist attacks it's no wonder that germany is concerned the country has seen a number of mine is involved in terrorist attacks over the last couple of years most notably there was a case back in twenty sixteen when a twelve year old boy tried to blow up a christmas market in the west of the country and the german government figures showed that around a thousand people left the country to go and joy in isis now around one third of those have returned back to germany but the government also points out they have no way of knowing how many children are being born to those those germans that went off to join isis and how many potentially could come back to the country and pose
10:37 pm
a threat but that prompted mohsin to say that he thought that the security services should be given the right to launch surveillance operations against mine is in germany that's anybody under the age of fourteen years old that though of course comes with its own issues a particularly sensitive topic talking about launching why it tops and other types of surveillance operation against children that young. murder rate in the us city of baltimore skyrocketed in twenty seventeen with fifty six killings per one hundred thousand people a new record in a city that already has a reputation for being dangerous and crime ridden. cities in body american urban decay more depressingly than the city of baltimore baltimore struggles with a record high murder rate. in
10:38 pm
full. yes baltimore there is a robust active crime strategy. work. but it all comes as baltimore has been rocked by the ongoing trials in one of america's biggest police corruption scandals they trace task force on the group of plain clothes officers were supposed to be reducing the violence on crime however
10:39 pm
it seems they were actually adding to it six out of eight members of the group of pleaded guilty to charges of organized crime including extortion and drug dealing r.t.c. recount is across the story. the baltimore police department is now involved in one of the biggest scandals and us law enforcement history for months now the court system has been trying to investigate corruption within the city's police force eight officers are on trial over drug trafficking racketeering robbery and planting fake evidence like drugs and b.b. kept. we would create false reports to cover up the robberies we were involved in it was like a where if life were got away with a lot of things if proven guilty the officers and may face twenty to one hundred years in prison and six of them have already pleaded guilty and are now acting as witnesses in hopes of softening the moving verdict and their lawyers claim the officer spilled guilt over what they've done mr jenkins is extremely remorseful
10:40 pm
he's been remorseful for a long time even before these charges were brought and he's relieved that today finally he was publicly able to accept responsibility for their client sorry for what they did or should. you should see regret for what what happened i really don't have any comment meanwhile officers cases continue to be dismissed with hundreds under review and most of them involve incidents of officer switching off their body cameras to plant drugs or guns and then reenact seizing the evidence they had already planted. yet a police corruption trial is ongoing in baltimore we will be following it to its conclusion here any and all developments we'll bring it to you r.t. . a libyan man who lost his whole family in a nato earle raid is planning to take his fight for justice to the european court of human rights you say he's the alliance dropped two bombs on his house during its
10:41 pm
military intervention in the country and twenty. now we demand that we need to explain why our house and houses were showing all the military targets i don't understand why nato targeted our house sadly my dear wife died as well as my cousins my innocent children our neighbors our friends were there with those it was a monstrous crime and nato has the latest equipment and technology which allows them to accurately determine the target of the nato cross struck specifically at night when people were in their home they intentionally hit civilian targets hospitals schools gas stations they destroyed all the infrastructure while they were killing civilians and destroying civilian infrastructure apparently knowing there were no weapons there. where you can see on the map where the nato attack took place as khaled mentioned thirteen people were killed in the bombardment including three children he says his heists may have been targeted because his
10:42 pm
father was a general who served under libya's former leader moammar gadhafi but khaled sais it was just a family not a legitimate target he began his battle for justice back in twenty twelve but has faced an uphill struggle to actually get his case heard in court nato which enjoys a degree of legal immunity in such cases argues that it had no intelligence suggesting civilians were in the house at the time of the strike however callid ses his lawyers have not found a way of challenging the protections afforded to the alliance and he hopes his case what are the precedent for others who also lost their families. when we gathered our families in different parts of libya we found a man whose wife and daughter and son as well as his mother died during the shelling and there were other families in other cities a lot of families we compiled a report from all identified victims after having documented and photographed the
10:43 pm
materials so that this case could become a historical precedent. campaigning for the my oral elections in the japanese city of go again highlighted the controversial nature of america's military presence on our island japan's central government other thora he's in okinawa where u.s. troops are currently stationed have been doing battle over the possible relocation of their base to the northern city of novel a recent poll shows sixty three percent of voters oppose the relocation only one in five support the move being come it more of the city who opposes america's the placement of troops to the island sees a vote for him would be a vote for defending okinawa's autonomy so you get your selections are extremely important as they will have a great impact on the future of now go and or can our country's current administration is attacking us with attempts to sway the power these elections are meant to defend japanese democracy and our autonomy we're asking people from all
10:44 pm
over the country for their understanding okinawa is in a difficult situation right now but if many people support us we will continue what we're doing. in one thousand nine hundred sixty review by japan and the us the size of the american base should be relocated to the remote area of had no curl the decision was made in order to reduce the military impact on the populated communities of southern okinawa but there has since been numerous crimes committed in relation to the us military presence there.
10:45 pm
to vist in okinawa believe the japanese government has been turning a blind eye to the tense situation playing out in the region. now i don't think they are mistaken i mean it is a really strong body refusing the good of a nation of the day but another candidate is backed up by japanese central government so he green is. then the new military base in his most people who are against the new military base construction is government job is government hungry ignoring our voice against democracy and against division if the. accept a base they can get the money we need the citizens who know the truce
10:46 pm
the facts are really own worried japan's government sent who sent. ministers money and demagogue all. the fake news but we really let loose we will be in. crypto currency big corn is seeing another tumble as regulators in india now and say widespread crackdown sending prices into freefall overall it's already time by more than half from the all time high reached in mid assembler facebook has also moved on crypto saying it will block all odds promoting bitcoin or other cryptocurrency products and services miguel francis santiago looks into the bat.
10:47 pm
big news in the world of crypto facebook is banning all cryptocurrency ads explanation of the social networks not sure all of the companies behind them are operating in quote good faith so it's stepping in to save the day. we want people to continue to discover and learn about new products and services through facebook ads without fear of scams or deception there you go with the crypto boom comes the crypto rag down we've already seen some governments across the world seeking to ryan in the uncharted waters of the crypto market too from china to the u.k. pseudo financial innovations that have no relationship with the real economy should not be supported i would caution people we know relatively little about what sun's forms the price but cotton it's not commodity as well because the eventual supply is fixed if you want to invest a bit and be prepared to lose all your money sure there are traps in the greater
10:48 pm
world take this nicely wrap website of the lithuanian based startup the company wanted to track around six point five million worth of the theory in crypto currency to revolutionize agriculture sounds promising. sure enough the company disappeared without a trace soon after finishing its hard cap wiping its website clean and leaving just one vulgar war behind but it could have been much more like a whole crypto bank for example the first ever by the way the arise bank which had its assets frozen by the u.s. securities and exchange commission with more than six hundred million dollars in several crypto currencies including bitcoin unlike coin all because its owner had previously been associated with crypto fraud and its new bank fabricated agreements with banks that did not exist.
10:49 pm
but then really how many i theo's out there are scams and that facebook really need to go that far to limit all crypto a whole crypto currency movement is a big thing and it's kind of like a gold rush so there are going to be some scam artists who get in on the action and unfortunately there are a few but facebook is a billion dollar a month company they can put one person on this to sort them out it's not that hard there's not that many of them it should not be their their job to police such things in my opinion they have to deal with us and world politics and there may be pressures on them to do these things that you can watch the full digest on our you tube this is. i mean you go. more r.t.
10:50 pm
programs right ahead and show and tell mrs here in half an hour with all the global updates. hey everybody i'm stephen bob. taft hollywood guy usual suspects every proud american first of all i'm just george washington and r.v.'s to suggest this is my buddy max famous financial guru and well just a little bit different i'm not a. miner when those up with all the drama happening in our country i'm shooting the road have some fun meet everyday americans. and hopefully start to bridge the gap this is the great american people.
10:51 pm
you. are this is the kaiser report yeah we're at the sunset marquis in west hollywood looking for billy bob thornton he's like haunts the premises and we're hoping to bump into him and talk to him about his career and his view on the economy but until we get to that let's talk to stacy until we find billy bob we need a plan b. and luckily the e.c.b. with all their beer kratz have come up with a very cunning plan b. max kaiser e.c.b. these new plan b. synthetic structured euro bonds we could be about to be treated to
10:52 pm
a brand new central bank coined acronym e s b or in what is somewhat catch your plural from as bees as in as b.'s e.s.p. stands for european safe bond which in today's europe may sound like a contradiction in terms but is in fact an idea that has been gathering dust on the drawing board for close to seven years it could soon be brought to life however if the e.c.b. approves a plan being drawn up to launch the new financial instrument by an independent task force under irish central bank governor phillip lane i'll go into the details in a moment but here it reminds me of the last episode where we were that young millennial kid from new york was talking about the markets are insulated he feels like the markets are somehow insulated probably because he listens to such things as a safe bond any time you see the word synthetic being thrown around by
10:53 pm
a new structure and financial project is shortly before that structure financial project product collapses all synthetic. financial products collapse that's true throughout history. but there's no law against it and the central banks keep issuing these synthetic products now why are they doing this because central banks like to think that they have a certain amount of reserves on their balance sheet in relation to the debt that they are issuing like the central bank of america for example is leverage i think sixty to one the central bank and wireless probably leverage fifty or sixty to one so the way to get around that to leverage themselves one hundred to one or two hundred to one they give synthetic product a aaa rating you know which will be all this is a government issued product they're going to have a aaa rating but you know i could just as easily give a aaa rating you know to this leaf and say this is
10:54 pm
a synthetic european central bank as a bond and i could say it's worth a billion dollars and it's on the balance sheet of the central bank and therefore it's as good as you know whatever they're going to say it's as good as but it's essentially just it's if it's nothing it's zero it's nonsense it's criminal well they go into how the actual synthetic derivative would function here's how the scheme would work private or public institutions such as large banks or the european stability mechanism the euro zone's bailout fund would repackage sovereign debt from the earth zones nineteen nations and to three traunch is a senior tranche that would have a credit rating of aaa or thereabouts a junior traunch that would be rated lower but would still be investment grade and the lowest level which would contain the riskiest securities might be below investment grade i junk rated and would yield around five to six percent
10:55 pm
a sensually the securities would be derivatives based on solver and bonds again this is exactly what i said that repackaging junk. and they're giving it aaa rating and passing it off as low yielding securities and they didn't dump it into pension accounts where it will blow up and ruin a lot of people's retirements if you recall history this is exactly what we heard right before the sub prime collapse stayed delved into trunk of debt and gave different ratings to different challenges and they sold those on a pension accounts and they all blew up remember made in made in sheet in lane maiden lane one made lane this is a repeat of all the criminal behavior that was done before the crash but no laws were passed to stop the recidivist criminal banks frost hers from doing the exact same thing again because they refuse to obey the law and all they want to do is
10:56 pm
still cash and the kleptocrats thrive some more and their big bank accounts grow and grow and the people in our own are forced to pay for water and try to pick the seeds out of bird droppings for food and claim that it's their fault because they don't have the honus to become banks and commit these acts of fraud you know that could be true. you know that rap you did there you know there is a studio a famous recording studio in this hotel maybe we should our plan b. in case kaiser report doesn't work out could be a rap career for you but i want to turn to this quote you're going to word plays a spoken word. so listen this quote here you are going to have to refine because this is the most majestic moment of this article here about these new as bees these derivatives based on sovereign debt of europe so some of the nations especially the northern nations are of course concerned that this product
10:57 pm
will be just basically some sort of fancy scheme to have debt mutualization so that the taxpayer is in finland and sweden and finland and hollow. in them places like this are going to be responsible for the deaths of italy and places like that to allay these fears philip lane said the issuing entity would have to follow strict guidelines and be shielded from political interference quote these sovereign bond backed securities are issued by a robot the irish central banker governor said in helsinki there is no possibility for anyone to interfere with the robot seriously that's what he said all right well ok i'll go read the mic driven trading is programmed by folks that are looking to exploit. arbitrage opportunities in the markets to. eviscerate price discovery and steal lots of money say to those people are in charge of
10:58 pm
algorithmically determining how these traunch is of synthetic that's are going to be allocated and distributed claiming that they're not going to be debt mutualization or giving these northern european countries with the legitimately good credit ratings junk that wouldn't jeopardize their credit rating and that's of course false this is again we've seen this before the algorithms before the long term capital management as you recall were written by nobel prize winning financial engineers quantum economist i couldn't spell it led to one of the biggest catastrophes of all these robots are not infallible they're program for destruction and it's you know it's just a repeat of the exact same thing that we've seen now few times but there's it now they're being played out once again in with these fellows beezer fiz beazer as b.s.
10:59 pm
beezer furbies whatever they want to call just another firm you know there's read bottling the same rancid wine into a new bottle and claiming that the innovation in some way when it's not well so now we're going to move from a robot writing these derivatives to a protocol called be cooling and what the latest headlines regarding that. eight nine years into the project it's an interesting one and we're going to turn to this stripe to end because payment support stripe the u.s. payments firm which helps businesses do financial transactions online is to phase out support for big queen payments it said fewer on my merchants now wanted to accept the cryptocurrency rising fees and longer transaction times as a result of price fluctuations also lessens appeal he said stripes said it was
11:00 pm
clear most bitcoin users saw it as a way to make profits rather than something to make payments with as was originally in tended yeah exactly right so the original white paper busted so if you're not alone it makes reference to digital payment system digital cash but it's not ready to be used as digital cash yet it's still finding its way as a store of value so as a store of value is competing with gold we have irrefutable evidence that a lot of people that would go to be buying gold but bitcoin instead with a big coin price down as it is in twenty of the money is going into gold and see gold is rallying love the money is coming from bitcoin so that's a store of value as i've said now for a while when it gets to that point just one hundred thousand dollars a coin you're going to see it start to become more of a mean means of exchange. it was a bit early in their incorporation of bitcoin as a back end payment solution.
