12:30 pm
and there is no doubt. that. lawmakers overturn proposition. before the session even started there were bills that were pretty filed just that because it was repealed but you know. as. for this i mean just the fact that. business. proved. there are so many issues out here. everybody is struggling in their own way that we don't necessarily want to pick up. and face this neighbor and face
12:31 pm
the other neighbors and i will meet them at church. at the restroom at the sale barn and i'm responsible. and i think this is where the buck ends we individually have to take responsibility as producers and as consumers i think for the public very clearly you know you have a choice in the product that you at the store. here going to try to fix it i felt more like a hypocrite where you can't. the problem down the street.
12:32 pm
of 1st there was i wanted to educate people who had no idea like i did and so i knew that if somehow i was educated by one story that other people would be. the protests started black friday of 2011 and the reason we do about it is because that's when people start buying christmas copies start placing orders for christmas copies and we wanted that to stop so when they 1st started we were there to close every single saturday that was a very very long and cold winter. we always protest peacefully we always hold our signs are we always have our back up i keep a folder with all the information i have handouts for people that are very factual and we don't tell any lines that's the biggest thing.
12:33 pm
but few friends and i started going around to the mills in iowa experiencing it firsthand so our local store is diabetics pet shop and we went in there and we saw the puppies and asked them and our 1st they were like from a breeder and they were very open about it and so we asked if we could contact them and so they gave us their card and we made an appointment and we went and we visited the mill and there was it was also all. in general we have the negative temperatures and the very very high temperature is that the dogs are forced to live in the 247 and so our protests are every single week and no matter what the weather today we are very safe both to positive temperatures when i left my house this morning with the wind chill it was negative forty's this is cold it is on our coldest it is average when say iowa and usually air protagonists are between. people into every latest add on the weather and what we all have going on
12:34 pm
it is a priority to everybody and we have several people that travel from out of town to get here 2 years is a long time to think that we've been in front of here this is where we hang our young people hang out in front of 5 stars on saturday. we'll be out here for 2 hours the dogs are going to be out here are the top. dogs in the shelter and. there are a. rescue effort. and i think it's going to be interesting to become more aware of what what a puppy mill means and what the dogs in the store actually do or i like to say that it's a ripple effect if i educate one person who knows how many other people they will tower and so if we can all educate our little corner of the earth that someday we will not have these problems because once the public really knows what's going on they will not support. no matter how upset i am i know the dogs have it at work
12:35 pm
so i'd never even consider giving up it's never been an option and i will use my voice because we don't have i will keep doing it and tell there are no more. until recent changes the only federal regulations governing commercial dog breeding date back to the passing of the animal welfare act or a in 1966 the a.w.a. defined a commercial dog breeder as one who maintains 4 or more breeding female dogs and sells the offspring into wholesale channels any breeder or retail pet store in gauged in the direct sale of dogs to the public was exempt from the a.w.a. . let me clarify that a little bit the animal welfare act only requires that we do annual inspections on
12:36 pm
research facilities so there is no requirement for the other entities that we regulate. but every facility that's either licensed or registered with us is assigned a minimum inspection frequency we have a risk based inspection system so based on the risk of finding noncompliance risk of animal welfare concerns the facility may be assigned a frequency of once a year twice a year 3 times a year whatever that system a science to it the a.w.a. does not require yearly vet check ups access to exercise socialization or protections against extreme heat or cold and allows both wire flooring and stackable cages. for the animal welfare act is passed and it requires humane standards of care for dogs raised in commercial breeding establishment and they require as of the department of agriculture go out and inspect these facilities and make sure that they're complying with these regulations i always refer to the
12:37 pm
regulations that we have today with the u.s.d.a. is survival standards if you comply with the centers of care the dogs will probably but is it humane no right now and u.s.d.a. regulations a dog 6 inches a living space bigger than the dog itself and you're talking about a dog is living in that space for its entire lives and the department of agriculture really is there promote american agriculture it's not an impartial sort of entity that is neutral the overseeing the laws and for years u.s.d.a. was allied with the very interests that it was supposed to regulate including these folks within the agriculture sector who you know started raising puppies and started operating puppy mills never in the state of ohio any breeder been forced out of this. long. standing violations of the animal welfare act if they
12:38 pm
choose to no longer be u.s.d.a. license it's because they chose not to renew their license not because inspectors came out to actually revoke that license i never heard of a regulator coming to pennsylvania no one was getting shut down the feeling of the industry was very we don't have to worry about it so frankly their doors were pretty open the so often if a breeder said violation of the animal welfare act they get a slap on the hands and when they get a slap on the hands. off and it is months following the violation and they're given an opportunity to correct the violation and sometimes it may be days. before that inspector returns to ensure that the violations been corrected on it's very rare that they will be given a fine that is truly impactful to their bottom line so they factor it in as a cost of doing business in force with the animal welfare it has been horrendous in and for many many years in fact just 2010 year old office of inspector general
12:39 pm
issued a very doable report on how terrible their inspections were they documented inspectors walking by dogs and just leaving of there you know that writing up these people and putting them out of business suspended really really bad the inspector general found several major problems with them foresman of the a.w.a. including finding a massive loophole that allowed breeders to sell puppies over the internet without a license and delaying confiscation of suffering animals to give violators a final opportunity to take corrective action before confiscation can occur even in extreme cases where animals are dying is called the animal welfare or you know it's not the the kennel really well for it it's the animals and yes even some of the good inspectors were there inspectors in made sure that the building was clean and they had good shelter from the extreme. temperatures but the dogs of. the photo
12:40 pm
a lot of the focus of that. was on inconsistency in some of the things our inspectors were citing and the length of time it took to get to enforcement so we put some an intensified training in place for our inspectors some a different oversight of our inspection process and work with our branch to find different ways to expedite the enforcement process since and we've also worked on some nontraditional or non regulatory solutions if we can help somebody come into compliance without having to resort to enforcement action and get those animals in a better welfare situation quicker and that's what we're going to do. since being elected in 1907 senator dick durbin has introduced legislation in every session that would dramatically improve the lives of dogs in commercial kennels and would close the internet loophole. the way people sold dogs changed and has it changed it was no longer going to the individual breeder oh longer just going to
12:41 pm
the store now was online sales and they were exempt from the kind of regular inspection that would protect the puppies and their mothers so we had to make sure that our bill really filled the scale up and provided the protection for those online sales and the pups that were part of it even in the midst of the hyper partisanship of the u.s. senate on the issue of puppy mills senator durbin found willing partners on the republican side of the aisle my 1st co-sponsor was rick santorum one of the most conservative republicans from pennsylvania he was on this point with me and then after he left the senate i had senator vitter from louisiana another very conservative senator so it turns out that when it comes to humane treatment of animals and dogs in particular this is very bipartisan if a bill like pops went to the floor of the house of the senate it would be an
12:42 pm
overwhelming yea vote for the measure it would be $9095.00 yes votes in the senate you know be $400.00 or so yes votes in the house out of $430.00 but the problem is on an a wall for legislation the congress is that many of the bills you get track to the house and senate committees on agriculture and those committees are populated by the most rural lawmakers aligned with the biggest agribusiness interests in the united states. a more robust morals are going to be one in which we move business as usual but guess what. we prepared for a car that is. a lot cheaper at reduced mobility no the germans it's a lot cheaper than having.
12:43 pm
a short time ago an american airplane. hiroshima. stake a claim many. ago. there were how one diligently you. can it's. like most americans growing up after the war the bombs were a great thing they ended the war they say hundreds of thousands of lives on both sides and that's what my grandfather always said was his reason for the decision. truman was hoping for a dual strategy one was to drop the bombs and hope that japan would surrender and number 2 the americans were trying to send a message to the soviet union and there was american poor planning in october 145 chosen 20 targets and russia.
12:44 pm
throughout the years members of the senate agriculture committee have received enormous campaign contributions from agriculture giant including month sento tyson smithfield and cargill the sides these direct contributions each of these corporations spent millions of dollars each year lobbying congress. seemingly afraid of how a theoretical slippery slope protecting dogs in puppy mills could hurt their operation and corporate agriculture sided with commercial breeders they get loads of campaign cash from these agribusiness groups because that's the goal for the legislation that these agribusiness groups want who doesn't want to protect dogs and yet somehow industry find a way to twist it around and make you scared into voting against those commonsense
12:45 pm
positive public policies they typically oppose any animal welfare legislation because they think they're going to be next and they think that if you have a society that is incrementally building animal welfare standards it's eventually going to lead the society to examine their thought even with strong public support for common sense changes to the animal welfare act none of these bills were allowed out of committee recognizing the original intentions of the a.w.a. and the advent of commercial breeders selling exclusively over the internet the u.s.d.a. moved on their own to update the regulations. so the administration seeing the enormous number of senators and u.s. representatives backing of legislation and getting hundreds of thousands of columns from h.s. u.s. members and other animal welfare advocates they finally passed
12:46 pm
a rule to bring these internet sellers under the regulatory authority of us to before the change in regulations nearly $7500.00 facilities across the united states were subject to inspection besides commercial breeding facilities this includes research facilities zoos circuses marine parks transport vehicles television and film productions involving animals state fairs camel rides petting zoos elephant right and traveling and or roadside. in 201-3115 u.s.d.a. inspectors conducted between 101-1000 inspections on these various facilities approximately 3000 of those inspections were conducted on commercial dog breeding facilities since this change in policy will now also require commercial breeders selling on the internet to obtain a license the u.s.d.a. estimates that there will be up to $4600.00 additional new facilities under their
12:47 pm
inspection umbrella based on their own projections a total of between 10 and 12000 facilities will now fall under the inspection provisions of the animal welfare act this change will increase the workload of their 115 inspectors by newly a 3rd. the u.s.d.a. has no plans to add additional inspectors i think since there will be came into effect the number one way that we've gotten contacts are people's names as people suffer porting we do we have looked at breeder registries to get i'd get a number as we watch the internet a look at. marketing promotional things from folks that sell over the internet so this is a good move for dogs that it's now part of the animal welfare act but again our question's going to be how are you going to enforce that because you're having
12:48 pm
a very difficult time in forcing a law that was already in place and now we've just added a new dimension to it we've got 115 people. stationed across the country to do our inspections. there workload is prioritized by risk based systems so we get them to those places where they're most needed and at this point in time we do feel like we have resources to be successful in doing this you know i worry about that what a time or cutting back on spending appropriations in every direction and they say they have enough to get started and i want to keep an eye on it even documented u.s.t.a. inspectors who had their old puppy mill themselves documented supervisors of inspectors who were out working as roofers during the day and they're supposed to be out check you know their inspectors and inforced was absolutely atrocious and has bad since the inception of the act and it was just recently in the last couple years that u.s.d.a. has really turned around and started to enforce the laws but on the books since
12:49 pm
1007. 100 at selhurst and we just have to continue now with our effort to educate the public that the best place to get an old is a shelter or rescue group or a responsible breeder who is really treating the other dog like a pet and not a breed. machine. usually have a number so he actually has a tattoo on his ear as he's auctions and that's my word it's not that my business name once we got in he was shaking a lot because he didn't know what to do he was trapped in this tiny little wired cage. we don't need a crate with him he will just stir freaking out into the wall when it's raining anywhere near and. that is
12:50 pm
a. lot of e-mail. let me ask me a little and i don't know now i'm rains i'll be known as i guess that's me at least yeah i wanna know one out there. but i swear he's really really cute. he's really cute in many other behaviors and these 2 in here came from a hoarding situation philadelphia we took in 39 little blue joie lock box that makes this. guy. our our. dog was probably about 9 months old even months old and the dog was so full of joy and just wanted to get out run around and the dog was down on its elbows playing in and it was in a rabbit hutch standing on wire but it desperately wanted to get out and i can we take this dog no i just got the dog we're breeding the dog i'm just starting to breed or so this was years ago and then every time we went back i would see this
12:51 pm
dog and the dog was getting older and older and he didn't want to anymore because she wasn't a good breeder and i was looking at her and her eyes were dead and with him i was about a month beast she started to come around and i could see the dog that i remembered from before it's a shame that she had to go through all that you know her entire life just consisted of this misery. and we need people to start realizing that these poppy mills exist these puppies in pet stores come from puppy bells whether you believe it or not that's where your dog came from a puppy. thing that he's really crossed because they're not rescuing are saving a puppy by by buying their dog what they're doing is they're sentencing the mother of that dog to
12:52 pm
a lifetime of misery you know you know the general public doesn't stop buying poppies and stock on a change as it's just it's not going to stop i'll be down this till the day i die and i owe a lot and i hope i hope i don't have to spend my days to save dogs we americans are treating dogs like members of the family we allow them in their beds to sleep at night we spend money on them we give them life saving better a care a society that values dogs is not a suicide it's going to tolerate this abuse of dogs on puppy mills. until the public is willing to forego the purchase of a puppy on the internet or in pet stores no regulation will end the suffering of thousands of breeding dogs trapped in commercial mills across the united states and humane societies rest used in pounds millions of dogs are awaiting the chance to join a family if the general public decides to adopt and not shop the factory farming of
12:53 pm
puppies would and. the power really does lie in the people what we have as a movement is a 1000000 households who care about animals and who are willing to pick up the phone and being able to tap that power that is what should make any puppy miller terrified the other side has a much more difficult task they've got to convince people that keeping dogs in confinement for their entire law is. denying the vector exposing them to obtrude of eating gold is an acceptable way to treat go these are alike to officials and they work for us and we're going to make sure they work for us we know we're up against a lot of corruption and consumer fraud and animal cruelty but i think it's every time you educate that one person that could be the next person who makes a difference at the state house or at the local level or even at the federal level
12:54 pm
. gone. home i do think it's really important people if they see something going on especially i mean i mean just as it should bring it to people's attention you know people to know what's going on out there and. they just feel otherwise change is not possible. 20 years from now we'd all like to look back and we know what's going to happen we're going to what back and we're going to say thank god we don't have anymore i can't believe the way we allow people to treat these dogs.
12:55 pm

1:00 pm
welcome to our viewers from around the world live from central london this is all to u.k. . britons of local lockdowns continue with kristen the next city facing restrictions off for a spike in the number of code 19 cases that says the government's test entries scheme sees a 4 let me number of close contacts being reached for a 3rd consecutive with. the long term impact told through a virus is laid back with sufferers proportions severe debilitating symptoms we hear from survivors. the lebanese capital is slowly reviving after being stunned by the deadly explosion in the field of beirut with residents taking to the streets to help clean up after. the british brain drain the e.u. sees a boom in u.k.
1:01 pm
migration since the country voted to leave in 2016 that's as the conservative vote among ex-pats collapses of the children to a citizen's rights campaign issue and. those of the more than 90 percent of complaints of racial discrimination against the metropolitan police end up with no further action being taken in. the u.k. city of preston is the latest city to introduce local lockdown measures amid a surge in corona virus cases this comes as figures reveal the number of contacts reached by the government's test and trade system has for them for 3 weeks in a row it was dusty is here in the studio with all the latest so shot at what has happened then in preston a press in council has now told its residents to stop following the same restrictions as other areas and knocked out
1:02 pm
a huge. spike in corona virus cases in the region now in a way it is a decision to try and almost preempt a government one is hancock the house secretary has been meeting with medical professionals science and in the medical field talking about local knock downs and any confirmed changes will be announced tomorrow morning but for preston that's simply too late as the figures really do speak for themselves in fact cases in preston have almost doubled in the weeks leading up to july the 31st from 22 to 49 that's roughly 35 cases per 100000 people meaning preston now has the 2nd highest number of cases in england just behind block and darwin you have 119 cases but preston's story is staggering 18 cases confirmed in just one day now all of this comes as a nightclub just reopened in the area last week weekend in fact is the 1st in the
1:03 pm
united kingdom and despite the current climate on the expensive tickets of $180.00 pounds per pop $500.00 people went to clubs which the venue claimed though to get legal advice before deciding to reopen but in these pictures it's clear to see there's no real attempt at social distancing so all things considered then it looks like preston will become the latest regent to go into lockdown it will join other parts of northern england including east lancashire parts of west yorkshire and greater manchester now on a national scale then the number of people contacted off to someone they know has tested positive for covert 9000 has drastically foreland in fact 72 percent of people who have been contacted were reached between the 23rd and 29th of june which is down from 76 percent the week before on a local level though things are looking slightly more positive 98 percent of contacts were reached by local health teams and instructed to quarantine bought the online and call center approach was not successful just to look. well over 56
1:04 pm
percent of close contacts were told to isolate now the government maintains that it is all in line with how they expected things to go and they maintain that dealing with these local outbreaks the best way they possibly can it does look like the united kingdom is hurtling towards a 2nd wave of 19 if it stopped in it or writing. thank you very much indeed for all of the world with the government's test control system still failing to contact many thousands of people are still no sign of the promised tracking app the chair of the cyber security research institute peter warne thinks the government got off on the wrong foot when it came to the test trace system. there's a question as to whether if we have had oxygen. marketed in the bottle so who are now experiencing. this also wanted to make sure and this is not a linear apologies for that we can know here from peter warren.
1:05 pm
you want to have any degree of control over what you're doing if you want to be able to say in the country you've got to be on top of the inspections you go to be there with some know what you can what you need to do very quickly it would allow the government to be very responsive the sense that you say is essential but still no sign of. you know the problem with this is the one it was a very difficult thing to do and 2 the government says well according to many of the people that we've spoken to the government really got off on the wrong foot because it tried to introduce something that looked to all intents and purposes as though it was annoyed that the n.h.s. sold the basis for an id card for the n.h.s. because they wanted to bring the dates are in centrally and they want you to hold on to the. start much of the people are saying the thing needed to if they did go
1:06 pm
in for the alternative system which is being effectively used in other parts of europe the system is based on a room where the dates attended actually resulted you own your own phone it was distributed to then they would have probably been ok and in the opinion of many of the people we've spoken to the government has lost a unique opportunity to trust between the put the emotional out between the british public and the government itself in an endeavor which would have been seen to be in everybody's. meanwhile the british parliament is investigating the long term impact of coverage 19 on health single mother class hastie gave details of just some of the alarming aftereffects turning a session with a cross party committee and then pays. well there's a question as to whether if we had had oxygen or whatever might of newton about
1:07 pm
whatever we're now experiencing one thing of before you go is that it's also meant to make the point that this is not a linear recovery i'm sure coming on and it's relapses and limits but not only that you can divert quite a long symptoms way down the line so i'm 20 weeks yesterday middle of march and caught it got people in our group the same but at the same symes needs a doctor who posted 2 days ago to say schmuck provision if you take these you know that's temporary or permanent or what's it we had someone to several people posting yesterday to say there's only one house to vote incontinence at 20 weeks so they urinate in all of their carpets because they can't get to the toilet and this is developing or a half months or whatever down the line. is to get claire hastie's started a facebook group for long term sufferers like a self which since attracted over $15000.00 members when they say they are unable to complete everyday tasks since their covert 19 infection and face financial
1:08 pm
difficulties due to an inability to work the committee was told about other serious symptoms that have been reported including mini strokes and blood clots furthermore the government is facing calls to formally recognize their suffering as an official disability we spoke to current of our survivors adam stedman and scott dixon who both been battling covert 900 symptoms for over 4 months some of their personal struggles. well fill her middlemarch with the space of 2 weeks lost about 10 pounds in weight and it's many there is no sense at lives. it's been a hassle because every sentence and what i'm left with now is just going economics and course byron's bits. and just general malaise and to give an example suddenly are washed. since before march and something that would not be seeing an hour 6 twice as long. was that yes they just
1:09 pm
went over that and it people and many people like yourself are unable to work what's your situation yeah i'm the same am i mean plan for jobs number in between jobs at the moment and i am left wondering you know we'll sit down in full same job in the way i am because in the morning and suffield fine and then. minutes solidified at noon on just such a chilly air for an hour or 2 because i'm just still completely white i really don't think there is a lot of understanding at the moment there is so much stuff that i'm reading each day things that people are posting and every time you read it you go yes i've got that i've got that if anything it's reassuring to know that you're not the only one but that doesn't seem to be an absolute while feeling like there's nothing that scares me the most is what happens if i suddenly have a relapse because i see all the time that people are having relapses i feel like i'm starting to get better when i compare myself to weeks at
1:10 pm
a time but i just feel something could happen and it takes a back that's a real worry. lebanon is trying to recover from the massive explosion in beirut that killed 137 people and injured 5000 some residents are still missing the local authorities say the number of dead and injured is expected to rise as rescue workers are still clearing through the rubble to search for survivors to give you an idea of the scale of the disaster here our satellite images of the area before and after the blast all surrounding buildings were leveled by the shock waves which were reportedly felt as far away as cyprus the explosion happened in the densely populated port area of the city. well for some locals the day it was meant to be a big event for a very different reason this is the moment a wedding photo shoot abruptly ended in chaos because of the blast.
1:11 pm
local journalists all to ahmed reports and help people in beirut all coping with the tragedy. beta it's one of the oldest cities in the world with a 5000 year history leveled in the space of a few minutes the explosion and fire destroyed buildings within a 10 kilometer radius turning this bustling city into a bomb crater. the and. the and.
1:12 pm
this here is one of the busiest streets and. it is host to tens of shops many of which are for internationally known brands today it is covered with shattered glass and rubble and people are trying to pick up the pieces of what was caused by the explosion the disaster that happened to beirut it's. like. a sort of people full of life and the situation on it and in the town do everything got destroyed is the 2nd time in history that the road has been destroyed like this it doesn't look like boot i feel like i'm in a different country not only is this area known to be as a commercial hub and to one of the most important places for shopping and leisure at the level of lebanon as a whole but also many of these buildings are actually or have a lot of historic importance there are landmarks which was toward the lebanese civil war and following the lebanese civil war many of them was destroyed lebanon
1:13 pm
has you have bullet tainted these buildings back in the ninety's today again unfortunately we find that much of them has been destroyed and they need your habit . all over again. this isn't the beirut we know beirut is the middle east which is heartbreaking to see that all the buildings have been damaged and homes destroyed this disaster the worst in lebanon says the lebanese civil war is yet another body blow for the country after 9 months of empty government on rest the economy was already in a state of meltdown half of the population is below poverty line food prices are soaring and the currency is devalued now baby with has to find yet another way to rise from beneath that is still to come this. truth isn't racism complaints against the metropolitan police have resulted in no action. on the brain drain continues as the. u.k. migration since the country voted to leave the 26th says the conservative vote
1:14 pm
among ex-pats collapses it will be to a citizens' rights campaign shortly. summer solution where every summer we look at solutions from all the problems they cover on every other month of the year now today recovering to globalization the dollar is asian and china for cation process which is game speed under trump but what has set in motion really on december 11th 22001 when china became member of the world trade organization time now to turn to chris fenton author of beating the dragon.
1:15 pm
a more robust world won't be one in which we move business as usual but guess what . we prepared whole calderon's. a lot cheaper reduced mobility you know the jury is a lot cheaper than having. the number of britons leaving the u.k. taking up residency in e.u. countries this sort since the vote to leave the bloc in 2016 that's according to a joint report by researches in oxford and all these people of a report the latest brain drain. bragg's it was always going to comb with consequences and talk of taking back control and suddenly uplands their head
1:16 pm
freedom of movement the right to live and work in 27 of the nations is being taken away from the u.k. citizens now that's prompted is a huge up take in british people seeking a new home and the new passport in mainland europe these increases in numbers are of a magnitude that you would expect when a country is hit by a major economic or political crisis another important finding from the empirical evidence associated with bragg's it is reduced levels of consideration and level headedness in decision making with increases in levels of impulsiveness spontaneity and corresponding risk taking spain has seen the highest jump in migration figures with british people applying for residency jumping 5 fold in the period between 20 sixteen's vote and 28 in france a 2nd where prior to break that around 500 u.k. citizens a year were registering as migrants that figure is now closer to 5000 here in
1:17 pm
germany just 622 u.k. citizens applied for geale nationality in 2015 last year that number was over 30000 with the estimate suggesting that it's around hof of the 120000 or so british citizens in germany will apply for a passport by the end of this year migrants from the u.k. on the whole have high levels of skills and education in germany british migrants amongst the highest earners behind those from austria and the united states a u.k. brain drain to the continent may well be one of the consequences of breaks that as people look to hold on to their earning potential and also maintain their ability to live and work in e.u. member states peter all of a. r.t. berlin. for more on all of this i'm not joined by immigration and citizens' rights campaigner emma d'souza is this really
1:18 pm
a case of brain drain many of these people would have already been living abroad and are just seeking residency or or passports now. it even bill and thanks for having me i would say this is very much looking like a brain drain and it is a logical consequence of practice that which of course was incredibly divisive if you look at the vote you can see that the majority of those with a university degree or education the majority of full time workers all voted to remain and it seems logical that these people nice search are it better opportunities and the continent where they have freedom of movement and the ability to have better experience but the fact is the brics see it meant that we were becoming or we will become more global that means that we'll have fewer ties to the e.u. that means more opportunities worldwide so why on earth would people be thinking
1:19 pm
that we're going to be. left behind and they have to leave this country. i think that that's a misconception that the united kingdom will become more global because in reality it is becoming more insular the european union is made up of 27 member states and has incredible opportunities the economic benefits of trade deals with other countries such as new zealand or australia are the united states will pale really in comparison to the trade benefits with the european union and i think if we look at the statistics that especially the statistics around those obtaining european citizenship the 2000 percent increase in those obtaining german citizenship or even the amount of people that are were 19 british citizenship it does certainly give the impression that british that is and increasingly are seeing their british that distance it ship as a lesser or less valuable than that of a european citizenship so you really think the brics it is pushing people who call
1:20 pm
britain home to leave it forever. i mean the figures suggest that certainly there is an increase of people that are of tain in other citizenship and even some that are in 19 british citizenship and that's to be expected when we had a 5248 referendum here i think that it was incredibly divisive and in many ways it could even lead to be the division of the united kingdom considering conversations around scottish independence if you have a considered leaving yourself. this is my home but of course conversations in northern ireland increasingly turn to the possibility of irish we're going to fixation and a border pool which is part of the good friday agreement so there is always that possibility that northern ireland could also leave you know i think this is a case of people wanting the experience of living in the before it's for it's gone because we'll see numbers go down in years to come when that anything is possible in the future i think that of course if
1:21 pm
a lot of young people voted to remain in the e.u. and they'll want that opportunity the opportunity to move in live abroad and experience european culture and countries that could certainly a kind for the increase in people immigrating but until the economic. economic. turn with bracks it comes to fall will not really know the impact the cost look at the economic situation awaiting young says they want to leave this country go and work in the likes of spain the city of france the chances of getting a job a pretty slim although there are massive job problems there at the moment employment problems. there is certainly and of course that's going to increase because of the coded 1000 pandemic all country and think clearly in the u.k. and european country as well being a very different position at the end of it and emic thank you very much for joining us very good to talk to you live here naughty emma cesar thank you thank you. mean what it seems british voters resident overseas of swayed away from the conservative party in the years after the brakes at vote is currently a time limit on voting rights of 15 years which the prime minister was expected to
1:22 pm
ditch but the research throws that prospect into doubt 6.2 percent of brits in the e.u. voted tory in december selection that's down by 2 thirds from the 2015 election when 19.4 percent voted conservative and decades back in 1902 have a 60 percent voted for john major's party for one and it knows a thing or 2 about voting intentions as polling expert professor john curtis he thinks that tory voters may but she started abandoning the party in 2015 when the referendum breaks it was promised by david cameron. allowing the overseas votes is so thorough so was 1st implemented crocker aren't you notice and frankly for a long time most of them just isn't bald we are around $10000.00 or so people it's that diverts in the late eighty's early ninety's place and these are difficult because it had to be done but our wrists acceptor except for a most of them frankly probably have lost connection with the year capered yes on
1:23 pm
loans those 200 registered it's all based on research but they don't know it's a reduction the average on the conservative and certainly that was the a sum sure all both sides do provide so little party tend to dislike the allowing overseas versus diverted to curb their rights or while the conservative parts of you go over to no other what's interesting about this research done at such a such university in this instance it's cost a whole fresh year light on this subject in the way of grants and not actually it's service that. you know before britain is implemented but in an election in which the conservative party was clueless in a referendum when grex is only around 20 percent of the overseas voters $3050.00 concerts now he said he's done 6 points well of course you have to remember no groups lives are affected more by our decision to leave their opinion than the rights of the british citizens who have taken up freedom of ruins in order to live
1:24 pm
and in some cases work inside the opinion and it's not surprising that again courts research only as many as 95 percent of those people who are living implodes and who in the wake of the referendum did not start to get some of it said about a quarter many of them when they were just a by the time of the 316 referendum that they do the overwhelmingly in favor of it remain and the truth is this is one of many examples of the way in which the character of support from the conservative party has been changed as a result of brits what we once those of us the polity that represented middle class not if not fluent voters those days are over a month domestic but is this party now it does just as well a month or less or less one off because this is a party that's a whole that's now defined by its support the monsters who are posed to britain's european union membership let's change the message character of conservative core of this percentage is also at
1:25 pm
a pretty dramatic impacts on the participants here to win over voters most sees as well boris johnson was going to abolish the time limit on voting the fact that so many seem to want to vote for other parties might mean they need to choose a particular plan well certainly shall we say it was always argued when this was science introduced that it was it was introduced by the conservatives in the belief that it was in there or that your interest i guess however is the policy really just believe the argument that those living or people should retain their rights to vote for life and at the moment if you can. do so if you're not going to work through your character of more than 50 years if that can serve. as a point to there presumably will consume your progress this idea that. thousands of complaints of racial discrimination against metropolitan police officers have resulted in no further action. have been was 3000 complaints and 2015 of freedom of information request has revealed a 93 percent of these lead to no further action being taken 70 complaints did
1:26 pm
result in formal action against an officer and $68.00 prompted management action meaning officers were given advice or not conduct a spokesperson from the met police said that they strive to ensure fairness the met takes all obligations of a racist nature extremely seriously and it's clear racism has no place within the organization policing is complex and challenging and we strive to ensure that we are fair and just it comes amid growing concerns of systemic discrimination within the police just last month for team g.b. athlete bianca williams accused of accused london police officers of racial profiling after her car was pulled over and searched believes that her family was targeted because they are black and drive an expensive car and that police have since apologized to her and have voluntarily referred the incident to the police watchdog a former metropolitan chief superintendent dull baba who told me earlier that the
1:27 pm
latest figures simply reflect what many black a minority ethnic people already know. wait very very worrying and i think we've seen this a time of black lives matter movements across the world so people are asking there's not much more scrutiny around issues around race and the police are at the forefront of it so i think this is a one to systemic problem in the u.k. around the representation the weight minorities a treaty to a whole range of different organizations within the u.k. but of course it can be said it could be said that there was an investigation and nothing was found. but. you could say that but 90 percent it seems incredibly or 93 percent seems an incredible acquittal rate so i think i think what we need to look at is and the statistics show that there will probably be more complaints this year than they have been in previous years so we really need to make sure that we're dealing with these issues properly that we're learning from them has a society and the police in particular and that we have
1:28 pm
a system where they community have confidence in the police i think these figures no matter what metric you use bill you will see a disproportional say you have minorities are treated so you're more likely 4 to 6 times more likely be stuffed if you're a minority in the police across the whole of the country in terms of police officers so this is internal that make up 7 percent of the police service but make up 233 percent of all discipline hearings so whether it's internal or external there he's significant concerns about have minorities are treated with in places. that's all your news from us for today our colleagues at r.t. america will take over from the top of the hour from all of us here in westminster thanks for watching and have a great evening. a
1:29 pm
short time ago an american airplane dropped one bomb on hiroshima. standing up kind any thing in the middle class and. how until and you know you. can it's. like most americans growing up after the war the bombs were a great thing they ended the war they say hundreds of thousands of lives on both sides and that's what my grandfather always said mrs reason for the decision. truman was hoping for a dual strategy one was to drop the bombs and hope that japan would surrender and
1:30 pm
number 2 the americans were trying to send a message to the soviet union there was american poor planning in october 145 he had chosen 20 targets and russia. greetings and sal you taishan is my friends since the very 1st protesters took to the streets in minneapolis over the murder of george ward to the recent protests in portland where groups of mothers fathers and military veterans are joining hands and readying their leaf blowers to push back against the tear gas and nightsticks the us establishment class and their mindless pundit followers have tried with all
1:31 pm
of their might and public relation teams to paint these protesters as dangerous terroristic groups of crazed leftists who who could at any moment burn down your favorite courthouse or church after kidnapping your blonde blue eyed children and forcing them to read howard zinn while listening to k.r.s. one and watching old bell castro speeches at any moment that's going to happen we saw this last tuesday during u.s. attorney general william bar's testimony to the u.s. house judiciary committee when u.s. representative matt gates worriedly asked the bar about the possible spread of and if these protests in portland were not contained. is it your view then that chief and other violent people engaged in these acts would simply stop would simply accept that as their sole victory or is it your expert opinion having dealt with a number of law enforcement criminal cases and your legal career that that they wouldn't stop that they would go to the next town to the next community and
1:32 pm
potentially inspire more violence there's no doubt in my mind that it would spread . it would spread to one town up to another and another community oh my goodness they're coming for us all except like always truth gets in the way truth in the form of actual statistics you see it appears that the threat of extreme leftist groups and into. including and statistically pales in comparison to the violence committed by right wing extremists here in the united states of america according to recent findings by these center of her strategic and international studies that were reviewed by the guardian of the nearly 900 politically motivated attacks and plots in the united states since 1994 only one play tallahassee has occurred from an attack by anti fascists and that they tally was the perpetrator himself he died in the attack while trying to carry it out meanwhile during that same stretch of time american white supremacists and other right wing extremist groups have carried
1:33 pm
out attacks that left at least 329 victims dead. so my friends who is the real threat to peace on our streets here in the u.s. of a let's find out as we start watching hawks. in a city. like. this you always state see a. great city desolate systemic deceptions late show which. so you'll. welcome everyone watching the hawks as you know i'm tired relevant and i was so amazed my goodness we need to watch out for and t.v. but we need to watch out for these leftists extremists except they don't actually or haven't actually hurt anybody and realistically 994 absolutely we known this for
1:34 pm
a while the president was trying to ratchet up here and he created this outside group that was coming to destroy america as we know it and according to the research like you just showed it was all a lie yeah that's what the hoax it was i mean look when andy 1st kind of came about i mean chris hedges actually had a wonderful conversation just kind of saying hey showing up to protest wear an all black and a ski mask is not a good look at optics no matter how just your cause may be it's still the average person sit at home you look threatening. but none of the violence that we've seen happen since the murder of george white and the protests that we've seen happen over and over has been as a result of these folks here most of it is outside agitators in fact on tuesday while attorney general barr was telling those scary stories about andy from capitol hill the minneapolis star tribune reported that the now infamous figure the one we also hold me umbrella dressed in black taken in near you know kicking in windows at
1:35 pm
autozone. in minneapolis just before the looting and all that took place minneapolis says police say umbrella man was a white supremacist trying to incite george floyd rioting according to their according to the work the police is doing up there they've narrowed down who they think this person is. scary thing about that is apparently if it is this person that they say it is he even went to my high school he graduated from my high school temple bar back in 2006 which doesn't surprise me because there are those pockets up there there are those pockets of right wing extremists white supremacists all over the place know absolutely and i think that the more we dig into stories like this the more will see that these these groups that are really causing the crazy uprisings who are you know lighting buyer to things where flipping over police cars and all of that are protesters so that people who we see donald trump and his acolytes out here basically throwing all types of shade on when he's trying to be thin that he's calling chaos what he really needs to william is white supremacy and
1:36 pm
we know that he's not trying to do that he doesn't even want to acknowledge that white supremacists exist no because the i guess to him is is i don't i mean it's one of those things right get it but again it's the words like you know he's trying to tiptoe because he wants to keep his voters he's putting he's putting the needs of whatever voting block he wants to appeal to before the actual peace and security of the country is what will come to see him absolutely and then the fear that comes along with that is that he's willing to label peaceful protesters as terrorists as anti-american as anarchists meanwhile you have this group of suburban actors who are homegrown terrorists some white supremacist here who are causing all types of chaos and mayhem and yet aside from the report that we're doing right now to be honest i'm not even hearing about this on any bit of mainstream media and very few people are actually picking up on the story at all and that's because look far right extremists apparently a lot of this research has killed at least 38 people in just 2019 and that's according to the anti-defamation league far right extremist was possible for 76
1:37 pm
percent of all extremist related murders according to the defamation league i mean that is really where we have a problem with people in this country and it's and it's shocking that we're not really looking into it i mean even the f.b.i. was more warned about there's a bill trading law enforcement way. back 10 years ago more than 10 years ago you had no one did anything absolutely not and christopher ray actually you know he talked about it at one point and then we're seeing this administration still act like none of this is ever happened and it doesn't exist and that data doesn't matter it is post trauma i hope that regardless of what happened to you it's not something we kind of get into this thing of like well once trump gone from school and all this problem disappears it doesn't disappear but i just hope that you know if you remove this person from all you know if you voted out of office that somebody actually takes this seriously down the way. the wonderful world of sports gets a new challenge almost daily with kobe 1000 cases continuing to spread across the
1:38 pm
u.s. sports teams are faced with major decisions major league baseball team they mammie marlins recently announced they were temporarily polishing their season following the latest round of code 900 tests the team's most recent test results showed a growing number of positive players bringing the total to 15 players among the 33 who travel for their opening series here's tell us more about how the in will be is tackling kobe and what this means for the league's players is r t america sports producer regina hamm what religion or wearing a grim reaper outfit you have very bad news all the time you bring bad news all the time i know it's hard because i'm like i know she's not going to tell us anything positive but i still hold out for that one moment where. regina we know that several other leagues have opted to have a bubble for players and personnel to minimize the risk of their covert 19 exposure or potential exposure but in l.b. had that option and they chose differently do you think in hindsight 20 twentieth's that's a problem for them how do you think they're absolutely we're seeing it right now as
1:39 pm
a fact of today 800 players have now tested positive on that marlins travel squad you are venturing very close to 60 percent of your squad having the current a virus and in a very pro they have the idea they will go to arizona will put everybody in the bubble like the n.b.a. the national a soccer league m.l.s. is doing you know leagues that have actually been successful with the. and baseball when we don't want to do that well just condense the schedule have it be geographically determined you know division to determine ok fine on our seeing the result of that that these marlins players who reportedly went out bar hopping in atlanta during an exhibition game are the reason this is happening and will be commissioner rob manfred has an interesting thoughts on the scenario and we should listen to those. i don't put this in the nightmare category i mean obviously we don't want any player to get exposed. it's not a positive thing but i don't see it as a nightmare we built the protocols to allow us to continue to play that's why we
1:40 pm
have the expanded rosters that's why we have the pool of. players and we think we can keep people safe and continue to play think stronger and think you have those pool that this is you shouldn't be using that right. basic question but is there any way for major league baseball america's pastime with you know apple pie the whole bit to put a contingency plan in place in case the season does need to be canceled i think at this point you're hoping you know it's 60 games and $6060.00 that is not a lot of season you run the risk now that the marlins are going to play until it's monday at the earliest so now you're running the risk of missing the give or take $45.00 days where you're not having any games you have no room to make that up and will be at this point didn't think that hey we're going to operate like that just like they didn't think the trying to blue jays can play in canada and did not seem to have a backup plan for that either so we were hoping that the league is going to find a way to be like you know what we just quarantine
1:41 pm
a whole team and remove them where 2 teams in m.l.s. they did that they had to make a positive test in room selves in the tournament i don't we can't do that because you've already set the schedule you have already set these events in place and now i guess i just have to play patchwork and try to figure out what exactly is going to happen if you have this happen somewhere else examples of like texas. they have higher heard of cases and regina in terms of some of the other sports you know we talk about college football in the n.f.l. could it be a telling sign since baseball was considered to be at least be safe enough what does this mean now for the outbreak and possibly affecting some of these other sports the key word is safe enough you're looking at the scene where you're a diamond you're pretty far spread out at but you're still in a dugout you're still in a locker room you're still in places where you can't always do you fix feet apart cause trouble is a tackle sport you are touching other people college sports you are touching other people you are seeing the n.f.l. go back to training camp this week they have very strict protocols in place but that doesn't mean you're going to keep people safe in college football is
1:42 pm
a whole nother level of well we'll just figure it out because again they don't have a commissioner who can make league wide decisions every individual conference major conference has their own commissioner to make a decision so it's really going to be happening where it's going to go in the future because whereas as you look at it you know i look at it and say look i understand i understand n.b.a. leggo we're almost done if we can keep people above all we can finish out the season and kind of have a crown a champion and do all the to me it's like why don't these other leagues just say you know what let's take the hit let's take the last people are going to love us when we come back anyway let's just not do this for the rest of the year and start again next year when we know it's safe it's ridiculous i'm sure you've heard of the almighty dollar of course is a very big reason why these leagues aren't doing that and i think rob manfred is now seeing oh my goodness i maybe should have done this double yes it wasn't it's not going to be perfect you will still have that odd case but you want to worry about a travel team having almost 60 percent of its team in quarantine and i mean i don't know i want to watch sports without an audience so you know i was able to come in
1:43 pm
as a guy like play audience. thank you very much regina always a pleasure having you on even though you always bring bad at us and i'm sure that we're going to make sure that our story of good news some time move forward all right and as we go to break remember that you can also start watching the hawks on the man through the brand new portable t.v. . which is now available on all platforms so you have no excuse to go out he did it coming up we cover a canadian court's recent declaration that the united states get this is not a safe place for asylum seekers shocking with immigration attorney alan orders he will break that down stay tuned to watching the whole. a more robust world it won't be one in which we do business as usual but guess what
1:44 pm
. we prepared for. a lot cheaper reduced mobility you know the jury is a lot cheaper than having. how can you explain love i've been to 82 countries i've given 12 but i came here and on those 3 days i just filled with hope. and he kept pretty isn't it sick show. i made my decision to come here because 'd i felt and you i could build a new life you. know companies and. i think god decided that this money is no good to be free. my one dream is that all my children 'd find the same kind of happiness i do. i
1:45 pm
love my home i love cold weather i like the culture i like the history i like everything about it. and i know that. i am a russian fama. what else should seem wrong why don't we just don't call it. anything. yet to shape out just the adjective and in detroit equals betrayal. when something you find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground .
1:46 pm
us president donald trump never stopped ratcheting up just from the tory policies for his most hated group immigrants and it's not just disgusting rhetoric like labeling immigrants as rapists murderers and folks coming to steal your jobs in elections no trump and his cronies have gone beyond employment tory and racist language to violate the rule of law in their treatment of immigrants just a couple of weeks ago trump's plans to send born students back to their home countries if colleges didn't have in campus sessions was walked back you'd think after such a big blunder what move on you'd be wrong he's laser focused on dismantling daca the obama era program that allows 700000 immigrants to live and work in the u.s. legally so 2017 trump has work to strip dhaka recipients of work permits and ultimately deport them. the president came under fire for adding a citizenship question to the 2020 census and even though the supreme court blocked
1:47 pm
it trump is dead set on finding a way to end it anyway and the trumpet ministrations and gilding discriminatory policies against immigrants haven't gone unnoticed by neighboring nations in fact a canadian court this week ended a longstanding deal of allowing the country to send asylum seekers back to the u.s. out of fear that the united states would detain them and deport them a clear violation of the rules of asylum here to break down the crisis facing doctor recipients and asylum seekers as immigration attorney eleanor welcome alex. wellen trump has tried multiple times to dismantle dhaka piece by piece. so you know measures we wait for element combat drugs are you know what skype and we've got to do you know we got to do we can. it's amazing to me seeing how trump over and over again and now with doc is essentially saying whatever supreme
1:48 pm
court says i would do it anyway and no one ever really stops them absolutely it's it's compounding to me because every time he gets stopped president trump finds another way to basically the law and try again and it's something that i think keeps immigration attorneys immigration reform as well as dr recipients and those who are seeking you know seeking asylum on their toes because it seems like this administration is dead set on not following the rule of law dead set on trying to punish as many immigration and asylum seekers as they can and to dismantle all things that obama put in place but specifically doc and finally here to come break it down for us is once again alan or is back to write little title difficulties aside we're back where it was i'm glad i have you. and you are so hard to make sure michael moore was moving bass the last few hours champus tried multiple times to dismantle dhaka piece by piece what is different about this latest round of attempts and why is a conservative leaning supreme court seemingly pushing against. so i think the
1:49 pm
major issue here is that the supreme court has already decided that he had the power to end daca but he didn't do it the right way and not doing that a lump ago they said that you had to go back to the original rule which meant new people could apply and people could renew their application and what you find is all monday of this week the trumpet ministration can back and say ok we'll do we're new will but instead of doing them for 2 years we'll do them for one year and we won't take any new application so that is in direct conflict of the supreme court's order so this is a constitutional problem that is beyond just saying the trumpet ministration is against aka the judgment ministration it is against the rule of law because they went to court and it was settled and now they're not living by the rule that it should have been settled by actually today there was a hearing where congressperson europol basically asked the director of the ins are you allowed to go against the rules of the supreme court and the answer was no. and
1:50 pm
that's basically the result of the hate and fear and also one day in the white house garden the president said i am for these dhaka folks and the people who supported the case then why are you rolling back this level of protection for them at this time. a 1000000 dollar question dr recipients are are in limbo and have been for several years now i mean they must renew their status every 2 years and have no real way of knowing when the world one in the world comes when the world they've come to know might be ripped out from underneath them what will it take for congress to pass actual conference of immigration reform and what key elements are necessary to protect the rights of immigrants asylum seekers and these doctor recipients. well senator durbin on monday introduced a bill that says we for the dream of the doctor classification so that both houses of the potentially move it move forward because as we all know almost 90 percent of
1:51 pm
americans are behind protection for these individuals who came in as minor but it basically is going to take the same thing it takes for congress to do anything to basically get off of the gavel and start moving forward and get back to law making instead of politicizing every conversation in the media you are correct or the last an administration is when it's you know when it sort of address for now is to basically address the issues clear of all the other issues aside a budget issues and what have you they need to be paid. the point and alan i'm sure that you probably agree on this one president trump technically doesn't disparage all immigrants just those from certain countries african nations for instance mexico central and latin america he famously said we should have more people from places like move away and he's tried to cloud his racism with saying that those with special skills and education would be top priority but even with that only seeks to allow in white immigrants at what point in this nation's history that the immigration debate gets so racialized is this
1:52 pm
a trump care issue or is it something that. proceeded. well this is the definitely chuck berry issue i mean isn't there a cult or even a stratification in which the 5 stars out to 6 and then win $155.00 it's sort of earth japanese nationals and indian nationals but the sort of races undertones of this administration the threat of people coming in is what's really unnerving right because now everybody who believes in christianity and the right of individuals and helping individuals is against asylum which is a legal form of entering the country they're actually asking today in that same hearing conservatives are asking think in the asylum applicants actually pay for their own application called $100.00 or even $50.00 for people who are fleeing for the life of country this is something that is and president in this country that you've never seen before and specifically over this black and brown people the people you see in detention center are black and brown people while the undocumented population of this country represents every nation right there are only concerned with asylum seeker at the southern port of entry not of phylum
1:53 pm
thinkers that fly over from china or from other countries as a matter of fact i know right now as the largest number of individuals who have actually applied for asylum so you are dead on when you for thinking about these things in addition to that they have a laser focus group which was the public start to rule that was put it a day in the supreme court so they could go into action and then just a few hours ago a new york district court put it back at bay and saying that now you cannot enforce the georgia rule with the state department or with you and basically that all the struggle with allowing this country to say if you're poor or if i think you're ever going to be or you're not allowed to come into this country so it's very something influential that sort of hurt people who are right here in our region all those caribbean countries and all those people from latin and south america apparently while living in new york all the years of the president and many members of his cabinet member actually took the time to visit the statue of liberty and you would have counted them had an interesting decision to protect asylum seekers by keeping them in canada instead of sending them to the u.s. as i mentioned earlier what message decisions. you'll not only should have signaled
1:54 pm
us citizens here in the united states but also to the rest of the world. it's like know something this administration is also done moving away from a global participant in the right from the fundamental human right that we've always discussed canada basically said listen we understand that the united states is our partner we've had a great relationship with them but looking in our constitution based on these immigrants come to our country and the way they were treating the us we could not say that they knew it was a country anymore and that's the reality so therefore they have moved politics in the looking at the reality of an immigrant who was mistreated in the united states there is a very simple to understand as we move away from the u.n. moved away from humanitarian right we still have families that are separating california who should have been reunited last under court order who are still separated families of the basis of what we think is american and what everything from juggling thought of as a family around them working at the white house this is a fundamental they are still separated why are we still having this conversation.
1:55 pm
yes why are we still having this conversation ma'am thank you so much for coming on today educating our audience i always love having you on alan thank you always. and you are having. and finally today while well none of us none of us want to see anyone flying the flags of the confederate south anymore 1st because you know it's racist and represents slavery 2nd because well it's racist and represents slavery and 3rd because honestly give it up the confederacy lost back in 865 it is now 2020 get over it but the blags away but again while no one wants to see these symbols of slavery and oppression flying anymore it is also important to make sure that they can better one is fighting to take down from public display is. actually a confederate flag because that is what happened to poor kirsten and greg often back or owners of the nordic pineapple in st john's michigan the often bikers are owners of a civil war era mansion turned bed and breakfast in st john's and since 2018 in
1:56 pm

tiny little wired people who use a crate with him he will start reaching out in she won't let us bring him anywhere near. breeding dogs caged in the conditions of puppies i mean 67 years you know they've been locked up in cages outside you see no protection from the weather the heat you know the courtier the rain the snow the thunder nothing they have no protection. because you. know it's 2 kids. across the u.s. cruel puppy mills are supported by dog shows and most of the puppies that are coming from these large scale factory farming kind of operations are being sold in stores even a good businesses are involved like the mom center there has been a shocking amount of the organized opposition to efforts to increase the standards of care for dogs bred in commercial breeding facilities most of that opposition is
2:00 pm
coming from huge agricultural groups and industries that have nothing to do with dogs don't buy dog to. live from the world headquarters of our t. america in our nation's capital this is the news. rick sanchez hi everybody i'm rick sanchez and we want to welcome all of you who are watching us from all over the world including those of you who are using your mobile devices with the portable t.v. app and we're going to get today with the possibility of a war we're not talking about a trade war and we're not talking about a cold war what we're talking about is a real war a real war between the united states and china now under most circumstances we would not dare to make this suggestion because well it would seem almost hyperbolic right why then are we leading our newscast today with the
2:01 pm
suggestion of of this potential scenario well because 2 world leaders are coming out and saying that this is what they think could happen and these are leaders who know the region the asian pacific both men are all stroll you know and both have held the position of prime minister of australia 1st there's the former prime minister who happens to also be a china scholar his name is kevin rudd you see him there he has just penned an editorial in the foreign affairs journal where he says that the risk of an armed conflict between the united states and china in the next 3 months is especially high. then as you might expect australia's current prime minister there he is scott morrison he was asked to comment on his predecessor statement and surprisingly he basically agreed morrison said that the hot war between the united states and china
2:02 pm
was quote previously inconceivable and not considered even possible or likely but not anymore. 2 australian prime ministers one a former the other a president sounding an alarm they seemed to want the whole world to hear so the question is should we be heeding the warning or are so we should we simply see it as an alarmist view. we're going to answer that question here on the news with rick sanchez where we believe it's time to do news again. ok here we go the list of the questions we think you'll be asking tomorrow after watching this newscast today are australia's concerns over a war between the us and china justified what happened to american jobs in july and
2:03 pm
how big will bad amounts be what really caused the devastation in beirut what's an explosives expert have to say about this we're going to ask you. for almost a full year now we hear on this news cast of watched as relations between the united states and china have deteriorated there have been arrests there been sanctions have been tariffs they've been military exercises and interactions in open waters between military and that was all before the cove in 1000 pandemic that has one side now accusing the other of purposely making the world sick to gain any good amik advantage. wow we began our newscast today with arctic correspondent john hardy. hot war cold war cyber war whatever war ozzie prime minister scott morrison said in a recent interview with c.b.s. news and a war between the u.s. and china could break out if cooler diplomatic heads don't prevail he was
2:04 pm
responding to a recent article written by his predecessor kevin rudd who warned of a potential hot war that is an armed conflict between the us and china in the run up to the us presidential elections in november well if it's up to experiences it differently. and certainly not as dramatically as kevin has but in our own defense updyke we've acknowledged that what was previously you can say. and not concede to even possible or likely and those talks about terms is he's not conceded in those contests any more australia has had its own issues with china lately china has criticised australia's recent handling of the corona virus pandemic and morrison's comments about prioritising and indo-pacific alliance to balance quote china's economic coercion after beijing banned australian barley and some beef imports following cambers call for an investigation into the origins of
2:05 pm
covert 19 morse it also took some recent heat for his view about tick tock being as he said a line that connects right back to china still australia and china are significant trade partners china is the single biggest foreign owner of us trailing in water with chinese investors now surpassing the u.s. in ownership of australian h 2 o. and australian imports hit $56600000000.00 u.s. dollars in $21000.00 and during the past decade australian dairy imports to mainland china have grown more than 4 fold according to recent reports. prime minister morrison has called on china to enhance regional and global stability rather than he says focusing on a narrow national or aspirational interest while also urging the u.s. in trouble ministration to resolve its own issues with china on trade security and international law for the news of rick sanchez john honey good stuff john thanks for breaking that down for us let's bring in some expert guests who can help us
2:06 pm
decipher those johnson leaves as a geo political analyst with trilogy advisors and of course george galloway as you've come to know is a former british m.p. who oftentimes talks about these specific issues in this part of the world hey john i'm going to start with you. how would you describe what not one but 2 prime ministers of australia are declared. well 1st let me begin rick by just noting that i believe that we have entered the phase of cold war 2 sprit much the case now after china's actions over the last 6 months beginning with the spread of covert asked to the australian prime minister as i had a chance to read the foreign affairs article this morning and i don't think there's anything that's really all that startling about either prime minister's comments that a war between china and the us is no longer inconceivable given the very accelerated
2:07 pm
militarization of the south china sea by china amphibious exercises to potentially invade taiwan the suppression of freedom and autonomy and hong kong i know tax along the china india border over 2000 miles long so we see a pattern of chinese belligerence while the world is distracted by covidien by economic devastation but i don't believe there's any such thing as a 3 month window where world war is more likely or anything like that and i believe that there will be much cooler heads prevail in both washington and beijing about any deliberate steps towards war but the danger is given what has been happening under chinese belligerence in asia and beyond the potential for a miscalculation could lead to an escalation that no one wants to see occur there john just to be clear at the very beginning i heard you mention covert 19 are you asserting as president trump does that the chinese did covert 19 on
2:08 pm
purpose. no i'm not then i actually don't believe that's what the white house has been stating what we do see is either immense gross incompetence on the part of the chinese communist party or potentially and i think this is really where the mistrust has emerged in the white house between washington and beijing that the chinese communist party leadership from xi jinping on down knew that this was far more dangerous it was no longer containable and will hind and yet beijing continue to impress upon the international civil aviation organization to allow for international flights from a woman to the united to europe and worldwide want it shut down domestic travel from move on to beijing shanghai and other major train he said it's ok good i just wanted to get a clarification on that i had to do the riyadh let's go to george galloway door die magid you are might disagree with with what mr certainly does have to say.
2:09 pm
well that was the world does viewed through the looking glass where words mean exactly what you decide they mean and in many cases those statements were of the precise opposite of the truth it's not china other scott warships in the south american sea it's america that's got warships in the south china sea it's not china others go nuclear armed airplanes off the coast of china it's the other way around the belligerence is all on the other side than has just been asserted but we both agree on this of that there is nothing all that remarkable about what 2 australian prime ministers have said because trade wars cyber wars propaganda wars cold wars oftentimes pave the way to hot war and if the whole war breaks out then of course we're in if you'll forgive the pun completely
2:10 pm
unchartered waters will it be a conventional war or will escalate to short range nuclear missiles will it escalate to and to our continental ballistic missiles in which case you and i will never talk again rick because the world will be and the end susi arms with which some people approach these existential questions ending of earth and the human race questions is quite frankly staggering you know why give the dog was not just a movie bill clinton in my lifetime killed one of my friends the finest woman been to our in the arab world lead i'll tough as i walk the dog maneuver to distract attention from the failings of his administration and donald trump has more than more than enough bill clinton's problems right now. just a few months from the presidential election you gentlemen gave us to come trusting
2:11 pm
points of view on an issue that we wanted to take a look at and we were certainly glad that we had you both here to take us through it john settle it is john galloway thank you sir for joining us for that discussion . in a day of alarming reports let me add another story that we've been working on for you according to 2 peer reviewed studies one from the u.k. and the other from the forestation and the rampant this struction of natural resources fueled by human greed will cause more harm that we can even begin to imagine. the height of it has been looking into this. from greenhouse gases. to an insatiable hunger for resources according to a theoretical study featured in natural science reports human behavior has put our planet on the fast track to a catastrophic collapse the paper uses
2:12 pm
a quantitative analysis of the sustainability of current world population growth in relation to the parallel deforestation process adopting a statistical point of view in other words our growing population is calculated alongside human resource consumption rates to evaluate what our chances are of avoiding self-destruction the news isn't good when all is said and done the study shows that our civilization has a very low probability of avoiding a collapse the most optimistic estimate standing at 10 percent. the report points to the density of the world's forests or lack thereof as being one of the best measures of predicting what the future holds the study's authors moral below nya and geraldo aquino note that if the current rate of deforestation is sustained all the earth's force will disappear within 100 to 200 years how disappear long before
2:13 pm
the last tree died this includes carbon storage oxygen production soil conservation and water cycle regulation according to the paper the progressive degradation of the environment due to deforestation would heavily affect human society and consequently the human collapse would start much earlier the report says this means the next 20 to 40 years before the rise of human civilization our planet was covered in 37000000 square miles of forest in a relatively brief time here people have managed to bring that number down to 25000000 square miles that's approximately one 3rd of all forests gone. when it comes to deforestation the amazon is indicative of what is happening on a global scale the amazon jungle which some call the lungs of the planet has decreased in size by nearly 20 percent in the past 50 years some scientists believe that if another 5 percent is destroyed the entire rain forest will dry out and turn
2:14 pm
into a sabbat manmade virus have reached in the amazon over the past year helping close in on that tipping point if that were to happen it would not only be devastating to the region but the entire planet as explained by actor and vice chair of conservation international harrison ford at the united nations headquarters in new york last september when a room in your house is on fire you don't say there is a fire in a room in my house you say my house is on fire and we only have one house fires in the amazon have increased by 28 percent since last year many brazils right wing president garble sonar 0 who meet calls to clear landed brazil's amazon to drive economic development the scientists behind the study say that the only way to avoid a catastrophic collapse is to change the unsustainable levels of population growth and consumption the only other chance is the development of some unprecedented technology that we currently don't have. both paths would need collective action on
2:15 pm
a global scale prioritizing our planet over our economy according to the authors of the report the chance of that happening is very unlikely for news with rick sanchez i'm alex mileage and this is the nose with rick sanchez 'd as you watch it let me tell you what we've got coming your way after this break we're going to have a weapons expert who's going to be joining us he will tell us about explosions that's what he knows as all of us try and figure out what really caused this explosion in beirut but the world is talking about and focusing on we'll be right back.
2:16 pm
a short time ago an american airplane run by hiroshima. state not claim any. go. well until you do know that your chin it's. like most americans growing up after the war the bombs were a great thing they ended the war they say hundreds of thousands of lives on both sides and that's what my grandfather always said was his reason for the decision. truman was hoping for a dual strategy one was to drop the bombs and hope that japan would surrender the number to the americans were trying to send a message to the soviet union there was american poor planning in october 145 and had chosen 20 targets in russia.
2:17 pm
the embassy maxwell saki is one of the most sensational stories of our time however media coverage appears to be limited to learning details and political overtones from the single biggest question that needs to be answered is how all of this could have happened where was long for spin and will justice be served. no crowd. no shots. actually felt. really strong. just. switch your thirst for action.
2:18 pm
hey welcome back i'm rick sanchez today world leaders are responding to the disastrous explosion at the port of beirut earlier this week today the president of france because of the side of the blast while bringing material aid to the nation as well as the promise of more support other european nations italy germany have promised to send aid as well closer to home israel has offered to take in lebanese medical patients and iran has even offered their support as well russia meanwhile is sending in doctors and nurses to create a temporary field hospital artie's a gorgeous dog has the exclusive details. this is a field hospital in its early stages it is just being built in fact there's another group of emergency workers on the way with more infrastructure but this is where russian rescue as will be taking those engines those still in need of medical attention from off to the blas.
2:19 pm
well everything that you can see around me was erected overnight it was literally an empty lot just a 2 o'clock in the morning last time i was here well fast forward 6 hours and well there's already a small tent city here. well these is silly. dogs have been traveling with me or rather i was with them and they will be sniffing out those who may be still trapped and a life under the rubble. the city of be roots is devastated morally physically financially in fact of all places that i have a being too apart from acts of war zones of course this one with all the rubble of destruction and vehicles just abandoned at the side of the road resembles
2:20 pm
a scene from a post-apocalyptic movie the most and the russian 8 aims here at relieving at least some of the pain i'm done of reporting from beirut in lebanon. right now let's take a step back to see the actual blast once again let me show you once again what this blast looked like there it is and it's a pretty wide shot right so you can kind of see or as we discussed yesterday where is this explosion emanating far is it coming from the ground is it coming from above everybody has been trying to work through this information so joining us now is explosions expert rene joining us from miami florida mr basulto thank you so much sir for joining us this is your expertise is there anything you see in the video or what you've read or any of the evidence sort of the reports that would lead you to believe that this is either a case of sabotage or something else maybe
2:21 pm
a missile. it's hard to tell 'd of it sabotages it does not appear to be a missile 'd from what i've read and from the the facts available to us right now it seems to be an explosion of the ammonium nitrate that was being stored. at a facility there's a quite a bit of amount of one in 1000 so let me press you on that let's suppose somebody knew then but there was a mony of nitrate there i would almost argue as many experts have an irresponsible amount of ammonium nitrate stored in one place for years but somebody knows that and they say i could blow this thing up pretty easily all i got to do is take a match and boom throw it into that ammonium nitrate i get something like that to happen is that a scenario that's possible that would include sabotage. there are a lot of things that need to happen for disposal like this work there are a lot of. things need to go wrong it's not as simple as throwing a match at it or the ammonium nitrate itself is not
2:22 pm
a combustible route or ever it at a high enough temperatures the ammonium nitrate can. become volatile and violent they decompress on its own so you would need a sustained source of of keep a very high temperature which in this case appears to have been the fire adjacent to it you can see by the pictures you can see in the video now that there's a fire small during a quite large fire next to this facility and the what. the sad part is that it was probably in stored improperly and stored being stored it usually needs to be in a dry cool well played the latest space. it's rare that you have that type of the city has to be a facility specifically for this type of chemical and it was he ordered for
2:23 pm
a long time the serial so slow start to be composed and releases and i truly offsides which it did so for or could be a very bad problem so you're an expert you've looked at the situation you've looked at the video and the prima fascia that you see in literally before your face is that there was an explosion it affected the stored. ammonium nitrate and it caused the explosion. it makes you it makes us all think then that these reports we're hearing about missiles and sabotage you're pretty much knocking those down right now right we're down to 30 seconds. it doesn't appear to be a missile could it be sabotaged possibly. imagine there is very well known to be a very explosive devices used in mining operations as well 'd as a fertilizer but you would have to be significant amount of fire and know that that fire is going to spread to this building in order for it to be sabotaged you can't
2:24 pm
rule it out completely we're going to get you to be down but no but you do this for a living you're called into court rooms to be asked a question that i just called you so i thank you for your expertise on this and for sharing a with us mr basulto rene mistletoe thank you very much thank you for having my pleasure now this tomorrow morning at 8 30 in the morning we're going to know how many jobs the united states added in july despite the koven 1000 surge that we're experiencing remember the june report was hailed as the beginning of the end of the economic meltdown why because well back then the unemployment rate went from 15 percent to like 11 percent. 5000 americans were hired back mostly due to the lockdown ending in most states so what's the expectation for tomorrow economists are saying somewhere around 1.7 more americans will have gone back to work in july which would mean this quick recovery this v. shaped thing that a lot of people are hoping for that may not be on the horizon not if we're going
2:25 pm
from 5000000 to 1.7 right but let me bring in an expert john grace knows a lot more about this than i do he directs investors advantage and he's good enough to join us now i know the numbers are dan but we're getting some pretty good indications of what might happen 1st of all let me just ask you that john what do you think the numbers are going to look like tomorrow morning at 830. well i think they're going to look is good is they might probably won't be as depressing as we might imagine we haven't seen the in the year of course this thing is a disaster of epic proportions but let's recognize when we look at the numbers whatever they might be ringing they they kind of are the average which is a good way to look at them but when we look at how this coping $1000.00 is impacting. is that minorities and women so we have to keep those things in mind as well they're the front line in many respects we lost you for just a minute john but i think what you were alluding to is the fact that there's
2:26 pm
a certain part or a certain sector of our economy that is being hit harder than others right and this is where we get into that conversation you would have had in the past wall street versus main street right right correct i mean for example you know just to look at the state of illinois i'm not mistaken we all remember last year we were crowing about 4 percent unemployment and there are 2 things here when we look at the we need to look at the quality of that and point at the quality of those jobs the quality of the of those incomes and then in the state of the illinois when nationally with the we were at 4 percent unemployment best number we've seen in about 50 years in the state of illinois the number for black folks is more like 10 percent so you know that graphically different 4 percent to 10 percent 10 percent if that were national it we would not be doing backflips there's a lot of people out there watching us right now in their finking well what what is the unemployment or employment picture and everything i've read in the last 24 hours preceding or preparing for this interview with you let me to believe that the
2:27 pm
real problem experts are seeing is a long term employment that the days of people getting a job that they're going to keep for a long time maybe over. they've been over for quite some time i think they're over in japan and they're over a year and that's what i'm saying let's not just look at you know a 4 percent increase to income if your income is a 1000000 bucks 4 percent it's meaningful if you're incomes 30 or 40000 dollars 5060 dollars a month that's not very meaningful in these united states of america so if we're talking about the enjoyment of the boats rising on the sea those boats need to rise for everybody as opposed to those without a paddle or those who are sitting on the side lights who can't even get in the water don grace my thanks to you sir for joining us and taking us through we'll see tomorrow we'll be reporting on those numbers when they come out at 8 30 in the morning we'll have the figures here and we'll try to analyze them for you as well stay safe stay connected check into a portable t.v. if you get a chance you can watch us and keep us in your back pocket of i like to say on your cell phone in the meantime we'll be looking forward to seeing you again here on the
2:28 pm
news with rick sanchez where as we say it's always time to do news again. a more robust world that would be one in which we move business as usual but guess what. we prepared for primetime. on time as a lot cheaper reduced mobility you know the jury is a lot cheaper than having lockdowns. banks there's a survival guide stacey you want to start to get all these. pieces. in an. active. good citizen repatriations to look at the rest in 7 years. bill of a separate kaiser report.
2:29 pm
the trump administration is sending its highest level delegation to taiwan which is angering china why now and what will the trip mean for american chinese well ations we'll take a look at that on this. politicking
2:30 pm
on larry king it was announced this week that u.s. health and human services secretary alex a czar will soon lead a delegation to taiwan the announce one has angered china which considers taiwan a rolled province so what's behind the timing of this trip and what's his impact on american chinese relations let's start there with joel rubin former deputy assistant secretary of state in the obama administration and a democratic strategist he joins us from maryland hi larry it's great to be with you ok joe what's behind this trip of human services secretary alexander's are going to taiwan the delegation visit to taiwan is significant because it's part of a trend right now that we see from the trump administration of provoking china in many regards and we are watching the slow to move towards
2:31 pm
a cold war now with china which is very dangerous for our national security and deeply problematic but it's also very political in certainly heading into the 2020 election where president trump is trying to define himself as dance i can a candidate and joe biden is the pro china candidate and how do you see that playing out. i think that the american people are very wise about understanding that china while the source of the krona virus their china is not the cause of the catastrophe we have here at home in terms of managing the coronavirus and president trump is trying to tell you that together but it's not. working and so he's getting more desperate in his rhetoric quite frankly about china continually using ethnic slurs about the virus and now facing pressure internally to break a trade agreement that he had made with china probe
2:32 pm
a preliminary one so he seems to be very much grasping at straws to try to find a way to stick a negative argument on joe biden about china and nothing is work and i think that's because the american people understand that that's it's a bit far fetched to blame china for everything and joe biden as a result. didn't play out do you think it will play in the election. i think that what we saw in 2016 was president trump effectively talking about trade which is a real concern for american voters and unfair trade practices coming from china theft of intellectual property real meaning but taito issues that did win him a lot of votes in 2016 people aren't talking about that right now and so where president trump is trying to take us on china is unclear it's not as if he's laying out a vision for what to do about china he and his administration are just ratcheting up negative rhetoric and i don't hear the american body politic we don't hear it
2:33 pm
clamoring for a new cold war with china but we see it on capitol hill monk's hocks not however amongst the left and so it's it's to me it's a peculiar strategy quite frankly in terms of galvanizing voters it's very different now from 2016 it's way via in the coronavirus as an issue right. yeah i agree with that and i think the administration it does does have some space to argue that china was not transparent with the coronavirus at the beginning and and it essentially created a slow start for us in terms of our response but that was months ago and we've had it here now for nearly half a year and at this stage in the game it's the american government that has to be responsible for what happens here in the united states related to the spread of the virus and that's why president trump's handling of the virus in terms of his poll
2:34 pm
numbers are very low like a 3rd approval so blaming china time and again as he has has not stuck in the is a winning political issue. elsewhere on wednesday former deputy attorney general sally yates told lawmakers that lie the barack obama on or joe biden attempted to influence the f.b.i.'s investigation of incoming national security adviser michael flem during a january 2017 oval office meeting with national security officials is this the end of that battle or where does it go from here is michael flynn still a story. well we're watching it in the process in i'll get to the substance but in the process we have a senate committee in the midst of a panda and an economic meltdown holding oversight hearings about an issue that has been litigated for years and settled and so we see ron johnson leading this charge along with lindsey graham in the senate trying to tag
2:35 pm
a scandal to joe biden they're using their perch in the congress as an electoral advantage maker and sally it's today popped the balloon of the theory that there was some nefarious plot by barack obama and joe biden to undermine donald trump and she essentially said no there was not that the investigation into michael flynn was conducted by law enforcement and the intelligence apparatus and it was not directed by biden and and obama and that's the theory they want to make but she shot that down and she was a direct witness to those those discussions a new u.n. report joe says that north korea is still working on a superior program several countries think that jim yong has made gains in producing ballistic missiles with nuclear devices attached what do you make of that . yeah it we're in a deeply dangerous phase right now with north korea we've taken our eye off the
2:36 pm
ball of diplomacy with north korea it's not to say that were to blame for the failure completely by any stretch north korea is is being very. obstinate they did not want to meet with our diplomats time and again but our policy is not figured out how to get around that blockage which has been the traditional north korea position kim is doing what he intends to do prior to election season which is why i think his muscles and reminding the world and reminding the united states in this case that their capabilities and quite likely nuclear missiles in that's a real threat to japan and and our allies in asia will trump what shaking hands with the leader and saying with all the positive things he said he might go to north korea what happened although i was a supporter of president trump meeting with kim and i felt like that was the kind for that could open up a dialogue but we didn't see the follow through and it was always the caviar people
2:37 pm
like myself and others who were saying it's good to meet but you have to have a program and you have to have a dialogue and in many ways the team that president trump appointed to lead in this negotiation led by mike pump a low and then as secretary of state my pump a 0 and the previous national security advisor john bolton they had a program that was diametrically opposed to diplomacy and a program that has failed and the president trump tried to change but president trump he's the ultimate decider here he's the commander in chief and he just didn't have to run the diplomacy on making can dozens on bring the system working with our allies in the region and getting china on board all of the complicated piece instead it takes he didn't have the follow through and so kim is acting as kim has acted before is really no behavior change for kim except maybe a home testing but he can now claim that he has succeeded in bringing legitimate misty to his worst fear of people who support diplomacy which is to give something
2:38 pm
at the table and get nothing in return and that seems to be where we are right now . a so when you say that our relationship with north korea has deteriorated and we've lost in that battle it don't think it's deteriorated by having the president of the united states meet in person with the leader of north korea one would expect to get more benefits but we didn't and so we've lost that diplomatic car that sort of carrot of a meeting in a legitimization of north korea where we would get something in return and so we have less chips to play quite frankly and we have to really step back and reassess how to put the pressure on how to continue to engage and how to come up with a different diplomatic program and set of asks than we currently have because what we're doing right now is not leading to any conclusion which ultimately benefits north korea's ability to take unilateral actions as it appears that they enjoy
2:39 pm
doing. what's the tech talk for storing the i think. well i've got 3 daughters who love tick-tock so i have to be very careful about what i say because i know it's their new world and now that they're in quarantine here at home tick tock amongst the youth they tend to say that donald trump is opposed to it because they were effective at sabotaging his toast a rally and so there's a lot of suspicion the months tick tock users and then when one comes valley in recent hearings that have mark zuckerberg at it he made an allusion to competition coming from china and trying to get the white house to weigh in to block that competition which is the kind of behavior that dr berg likes to to engage and i think that you have dynamic competition online and have social media platforms bring out activism has to talk does and engage people to talk is very popular
2:40 pm
but it does have to be safe and we have to have security protocol and if an american company microsoft in this case is talking about it can demonstrate that they can provide security protocol it should be allowed to buy it without interference from the political leadership at the white house which is the order of trying to guide this if not kill it and that would be a shame for america as the men and free speech. let's turn to politics. are you surprised at how far joe biden is ahead in the polls. it's it's it's a moment where the american people seem to be looking for a change and that is certainly supporting him but you're saying the growth in we in the lead for joe biden and the direct one to one person to person contest if there was ideal conditions from a year ago that were for donald trump maybe we have different scenario but one doesn't determine what the reality is of the moment and the reality of the moment
2:41 pm
is that americans are suffering and they look at joe biden as an alternative who has a track record that they can count on and i think that's why we see in swing states in particular biden up by one or 2 points across the board in addition to states that recently turned blue he has a much more significant lead and they feel comfortable with him they know who he is now and know what he has done and the person in the white house is not giving them confidence that he can turn it around hoping to live to see him pick as his running mate. well i think that he has great choices i'll put it that way and clearly the campaign and the vice president are taking their time inventing there are so many good leaders group national security leaders like susan rice politically you know what is between war and ecomil harris and karen bass and valdez. really from a democratic perspective which is where i said any of them are going to be the kind
2:42 pm
of a value add to a ticket that's going to excite people and i don't mean that to sound generic but we've got such a strong crop of people there that it's going to be a great team joel rubin as always thanks for your time today thanks larry we'll be right back with more politicking. a more robust orals won't be one in which we move business as usual but guess what . the prepared whole car bands. are on time as a lot cheaper reduced mobility you know the jury is a lot cheaper than having lucked out. as the u.s. economy was booming growing numbers of people were made homeless. you can work 40 hours 'd in a week and still not have enough to get housing everybody believes america still is the land of opportunity and the reality of it is we're not financially equality and
2:43 pm
i'm not comfortable housing or living minimum wage give many people neutralise you know that's been a problem with the city and always turn every kind of police to a way out almost all of this is that's good for the for the the it's because you know it's in the cards at least the. most vulnerable are abandoned on the streets to become the invisible klux. join me every day on the alex salmond show and i'll be speaking to guest of the world the call. fix small business i'm show business i'll see that. but i don't politicking continue the conversation now with chris wilson he was director of research and digital strategy for ted cruz's 2016 campaign and he's c.e.o. of w.p.a. intelligence he's in oklahoma city course thanks for joining us is the president in
2:44 pm
trouble. you know i think any incoming president is having to deal with governing in the middle of a pandemic is going to have challenges and that's current clearly what we're seeing right now we went from having the best economy in american history to the worst economy of american history in a matter of months if not days and yet it creates challenges and i think no matter who the incumbent is and having to govern under this scenario is creates problems and creates trouble so yes it's be foolish of me to say anything other than that we got more primaries this week and kansas kris kobach lost his bid that helps trump the me. is certainly don't know that helps trump but it helps republicans keep the senate i think kris kobach he was the republican nominee for governor 2 years ago and lost and it's very rare for republican to lose an election in kansas you know home of bob dole and so if he had been the nominee i think it would have it would
2:45 pm
have probably put that seat into jeopardy and so they missed mcconnell in the republican majority in the senate as a lot safer today i don't really think it would have had any impact on the trump campaign though 'd and so it was from a standpoint what it does help though is it's clear that the president was roger marshall and it. probably had gotten close to endorsement didn't it never did make one it was the 1st phone call that marshall made last night when he was declared the winner was to the president. what do you make of the senate can the republicans keep it. if the election were held today i think it be bad for republicans but it's a good thing as elections are held in august they're held in november and so there's plenty of time for campaigns to be run and i think there are a lot of races i'll give you some statistics larry when a incumbent is running for reelection and the president wins his state and there are the same party that incumbent wins 90 percent of the time it's president loses his or her state an incumbent only wins 65 percent of the time that's
2:46 pm
a pretty big difference so you look at it it's likely that the president loses maine in colorado it's not a done deal but it's likely and so that makes you know a couple of uphill races there for cory gardner and susan collins but i will say if there are 2 people you would want having to fight an uphill battle would be. it would be susan collins in maine and cory gardner in colorado they are both very well liked they are strong indefatigable campaigners and i think they'll both end up winning on election day so you take that and then you look at it's likely that the president's trying to get wins in north carolina where you've got it could suffer a surfer thom tillis but i think that helps him win like of 71 percent number and then it's likely the president wins in arizona where mark macphail is going to tough with tough race but again remember that 90 percent number and it's likely the president wins in iowa where you've got in montana he's certainly going to win where there's also tough races so i think over. all the senate they may lose come out a seat or so behind on those races i just went through but you've got to factor in
2:47 pm
alabama we're talking tougher bills republican nominee running is incumbent democrat doug jones who's doug jones is not going to get reelected that's just the bottom line i don't care how much democrats want to spend that they're going to spend they have a chance or they don't and so tom tucker bill is going excellent seat there and that gives republicans won seats and is an extra seat to play with in terms of the scenario. no as it's going to be close it will definitely club. president spent a lot of time up the road in the capitol casting votes in 2021. but a recent interview the president gave with jonathan swann of actually owes news discussing the cone of horror of virus did you think the president equated himself well. you know i think there's a lot that you can unpack from that interview and i think jonathan proved himself over and over again to the you know the budding larry king he's just a phenomenal intern and we get the most out of people but i think it's unfortunate
2:48 pm
i think what the interview has become. because the left loves to take up serps and use them to attack trauma but the reality is is what you had in energy it was dollars from trying to share what he's doing for the country in an unprecedented pandemic you know we don't have the interviews of we don't have any video of interviews during the spanish flu so who knows maybe it was the same kind of thing but and then they try to turn that into a gotcha so look at we've all had fun with the freeze frames of swan's reactions and they're funny and everybody loves a freeze frame of the people posting about them i think are saying really more about themselves and one serious reaction to a very deadly serious situation and the reality is when it gets down to it what the president was trying to address is this is this is a large diverse liberty loving country and look at me again i know jonathan he i consider him a friend but australia in the united states are not the same place and when the president can mobilize resources encourage people to do the right thing the federal government is not going to do same things here that they may do in australia where
2:49 pm
they may do in other countries around the world are not going to force people to to not congregate not go to church and are going to force people to stay home and refused and neglect doing things that we want to do as a freedom loving country and that maybe governments of the free money countries have done so that he handle himself well i think he handled himself the way that we've gotten used to handling and i think we've also had the kind of reactions we've gotten used to having over the last 4 years. do you think over 19 is going to be the number one issue in november. you don't know i think it will less there's a vaccine a vaccine vaccination it is approved before then it would not be the ultimate october surprise and we'd like to sit around every 4 years and talk about what might be the october surprise going into a presidential election you think through back in 2000 and the 2000 election remember the george w. bush's dui came out and the weekend before the election we kind of had a series of these that if it hit it what have what would what would happen and what would be the reaction from the mainstream media from democrats from even the biden
2:50 pm
campaign if the trump administration was able to relax regulations and push through a pax nation in october well i won hands can save a lot of lives on the other hand it probably takes biden campaigns the biden campaign's number one issue off the table and i think you know we've gotten a lot of campaigns and you kind of you struggle with things and that would be a difficult position be in if that does not occur then yes absolutely i think and it's not just code 19 it's the impact it's had on the economy the impact it's had on freedom i think all those things together are our facets of it but if it's all in the same situation is today no question it's the number one issue you don't want to rush to a vaccine though if you have to bring it out too soon and it doesn't work. yeah well exactly who to try it out on who becomes the guinea pigs who's going to step forward to do that it's it's a really difficult situation to be in. now warning of thoughts on on joe biden and
2:51 pm
it's hard to dislike joe biden when you agree. you know i mean he's going around a long time he is the only been around a long time he's been in office longer than i've been alive although many of your viewers probably won't believe that but you know the thing is about biden is he is there's no joe biden campaign functionally at this point it's sort of you know i played basketball my whole life and we used to try and run a fast break off answer and we used to really hate those those teams that ran a 4 corners off into trying to run out the clock and that's why i love that the shot clock came out when i was in high school and i was really pretty sure that there's a shot clock on jokes joe biden and right now he is doing everything he can to run out the clock and he's let the mainstream media run his campaign for him and there's not any larry i would challenge you or your next guest or any of you or say that name me one policy that joe biden has so minute and has advanced in terms of an idea that could change the challenges we have right now there's no biden ideas
2:52 pm
there's no one around by they want to talk about the policy democrat party party so all they want to do is hide in wait and hope and yet joe biden is a likable person but every time he goes on t.v. and every time he has an interview he put himself in a more difficult situation a more difficult position and frankly i think his probably his best strategy would be what they seem to be doing for most of july which is just keep him in his basement which of his proposed vice presidential nominees concern to the most as a republican. well i don't know who else proposers been so many trial balloons floated and at this point that i just none of them i think are strategic in their nature you got a list before and it was from massachusetts he's definitely massachusetts you've got counsel harris who's from. from california he's definitely go in california you've got some some members of congress that frankly i can't even name because
2:53 pm
there's been so many that have come up and i don't really know of any of them i remember the one in her name escapes me right now from florida who had praised fidel castro and that's not exactly what you want in a candidate for the highest office a 2nd highest office in the land so she immediately denounced that but i think from a overall standpoint gets down to it the vice presidential pick is not really all that important it doesn't make a big difference all he has to do is not screw it up and look there is i think what biden's choices larry is if he truly wants to be a transformational figure does he pay appoint somebody who is the future of the party who's a common harris unclip she's young she is fresh i think she really did herself well in the presence of campaign or does it take someone who represents his generation the party and elizabeth warren who is about his same age and doesn't represent the future so much i think that's going to be the issue an aspect of strategically larry is whether or not it is a choice for the future or choice that represents his generation and based on that
2:54 pm
decision i think will tell us a lot about what he is what he's trying to accomplish and what he and what message he's going to try and send for the fall what do you think of making the census and early. you know i am i. i live in oakland city oklahoma and i've watched our governor send out multiple messages to make sure everybody fills out the census as quickly as possible because everybody wants to be well represented having said that ah so i understand that there is there are not a lot of government resources right now to. come to. direct to the census so i always hesitate to 2nd guess decisions that are made by people who have more information or more facts on a certain situation i do and so i don't know that i make much out of it other than that my i'm hoping that it's being made for for honorable reasons. what is what is
2:55 pm
a w.p.a. organization what do you do. well we are a data analytics predictive modeling company and so we're going to create your viewers out too much but if they see an ad that. on your program that they think targets them directly well odds are it does and we take data millions and millions of data points to put in perspective in 2018 we built over 3000000000 with a b. voter scores that we score to the american voting public predicting one of the few things whether they would vote who to vote for and what messages might motivate them to vote or persuaded of now i would argue in prime's fries you to hear this that it is the way campaigns are meant to be run. that's not spend too much time not having you back thanks so much right thanks letters good to see you again we thank you for joining us as well remember you can join the conversation on my facebook page tweet me of kings things you know forget to use the politicking hash
2:56 pm
tag that's all for this edition politicking. but the pandemic no certainly no blood is just blood into nationalities. doesn't work because the people we don't look like seem. to be. judging us commoners because this is sometimes. we can do better we should be doing better. everyone is contributing each of our own way but we also know that this crisis will not go on forever the challenges created with the response has been met so many good people are helping us. it makes us feel
2:57 pm
very proud that we're in it together. how can you explain. i've been to 82 countries i did in 12 but i came here only on those 3 days i just hope. and. say show. i made my decision to come here because i felt in you i could build a new life here. you know companies and. decided that this money is no good to be free. my one dream is that all my children 'd find the same kind of happiness i do. i love my home i love cold weather i like the culture i like the history like
2:58 pm
everything about it. i know that i. am a russian fama. summer so. every summer we look at solutions all the problems they conquer on every other month of the year now so they were covering the globalization. china. process which is game speed but what has set in motion really on december 11th 22001 when china became member of the world trade organization time that attorney chris fans and author of beating the dragon. thinking of getting. around why. he's trapped in this town you are a liar you don't use
2:59 pm
a crate with him he will just. freaking out and he will want to pretty much anywhere near. breeding dogs and caged in human conditions on. i mean 67 years you know they've been locked up in the cage outside you see no protection from the weather the heat you know the cold air the rain the snow. they have no protection. it's 2 kids. across the u.s. crude puppy mills are supported by dog shows and most of the puppies that are coming from these large scale factory farming operations are being stopped at stores even a good businesses are involved. there has been a shocking amount of the organizing opposition to efforts to increase the standards of care for dogs bred in commercial breeding so many most of that opposition is coming from huge agricultural groups and industries that have nothing to do with
3:00 pm
jobs don't buy dog. live from the world headquarters of our t. america our nation's capital this is the news with rick sanchez. everybody i'm rick sanchez and we want to welcome all of you who are watching us from all over the world including those of you who are using your mobile devices with the portable t.v. but we're going to get today with the possibility of a war we're not talking about a trade war and we're not talking about a cold war what we're talking about is a real war a real war between the united states and china now well under most circumstances we would not dare to make this suggestion because well it would seem almost hyperbolic right why then are we leading our newscast today with the
3:01 pm
suggestion of well this potential scenario well because 2 world leaders are coming out and saying that this is what they think could happen and these. leaders who know the region the asian pacific both men are all straight and both have held the position of prime minister of australia 1st there's the former prime minister who happens to also be a china scholar his name is kevin rudd you see him there he has just penned an editorial in the foreign affairs journal where he says that the risk of an armed conflict between the united states and china in the next 3 months is especially high then as you might expect australia's current prime minister there he is scott morrison he was asked to comment on his predecessor statement and surprisingly he basically agreed morrison said that the hot war between the united states and china
3:02 pm
was quote previously inconceivable and not considered even possible or likely. but not anymore to australian prime ministers one form or the other a president sounding an alarm they seemed to want the whole world to hear so the question is should we be heeding the warning or research should we simply see it as an alarmist view going to answer that question here on the news with rick sanchez where we believe it's time to do news again. ok here we go the list of the questions we think you'll be asking tomorrow after watching this newscast today are australia's concerns over a war between the us and china justified what happened to american jobs in july and
3:03 pm
how big will battle be what really caused the devastation in beirut what's an explosives expert have to say about this we're going to ask you. for almost a full year now we hear on this newscast of watched as relations between the united states and china have deteriorated there have been arrests there been sanctions have been tariffs there but military exercises and interactions in open waters between military and that was all before the covert my team pandemic that has one side now accusing the other of purposely making the world sick to gain any good amik advantage while we begin our newscast today with our to correspondent john. hot war cold war cyber war whatever war the prime minister scott morrison said in a recent interview with c.b.s. news and a war between the u.s. and china could break out if cooler diplomatic heads don't prevail he was
3:04 pm
responding to a recent article written by his predecessor kevin rudd who warned of a potential hot war that is an armed conflict between the us and china in the run up to the us presidential elections in november well if it is up to experiences it differently. and certainly not as dramatically as kevin has but in our own defense we've acknowledged that what was previously inconceivable and not conceded even also a lot. guys talks about terms is he's not conceded in those come to see more australia has had its own issues with china lately china has criticised australia's recent handling of the coronavirus pandemic and morrison's comments about prioritising and indo-pacific alliance to balance quote china's economic coercion after beijing banned australian barley and some beef imports following cambers call for an investigation into the origins of covert 19 morrison also took some recent
3:05 pm
heat for his view about take tok being as he said a line that connects right back to china still australia and china are significant trade partners china. is the single biggest foreign owner of us trailing in water with chinese investors now surpassing the u.s. in ownership of australian h 2 lou and australian imports hit $56600000000.00 us dollars in 2001000 and during the past decade australian dairy imports to mainland china have grown more than 4 fold according to recent reports prime minister morrison has called on china to enhance regional and global stability rather than he says focusing on a narrow national or aspirational interest while also urging the us in trouble ministration to resolve its own issues with china on trade security and international law for the news of rick sanchez john honey good stuff john thanks for breaking that down for us let's bring in some expert guests who can help us decipher those johnson ladies as
3:06 pm
a geo political analyst with trilogy advisors and of course george galloway as you've come to know is our former british m.p. who oftentimes talks about these specific issues in this part of the world a job that i'm going to start with you. how would you describe what not one but 2 prime ministers of australia are declared. well 1st let me begin rick by just noting that i believe that we have entered the phase of cold war 2 sprit much the case now after china's actions over the last 6 months beginning with the spread of covert asked to the australian prime minister as i had a chance to read the foreign affairs article this morning and i don't think there's anything that's really all that startling about either prime minister's comments tonight a war between china and the us is no longer inconceivable given the very accelerated militarization of the south china sea by china and it could be
3:07 pm
a success sizes to potentially invade taiwan the suppression of freedom and autonomy and hong kong i know tax along the china india border over 2000 miles long so we see a pattern of chinese but widger ends while the world is distracted by covidien by economic devastation but i don't believe there's any such thing is there are 3 months window where world war is more likely or anything like that and i believe that there will be a much cooler heads prevail in both washington and beijing about any deliberate steps towards war but the danger is given what has been happening under chinese belligerence in asia and beyond the potential for a miscalculation could lead to an escalation that no one wants to see occur just to be clear at the very beginning i heard you mention covert 19 are you asserting as president trump that the chinese did covert 19 on purpose.
3:08 pm
no i'm not then i actually don't believe that's what the white house has been stating what we do see is either immense gross incompetence on the part of the chinese communist party or potentially and i think this is really where the mistrust has emerged in the white house between washington and beijing that the next time in this party leadership from xi jinping on down knew that this was far more dangerous it was no longer containable and will hind. and yet beijing continue to impress upon the international civil aviation organization to allow for international flight true crime to the united to europe and worldwide while it shut down domestic travel from ohio to beijing shanghai and other major cheney said ok good i just want to get a clarification on that i had to do the riyadh let's go to george galloway george i imagine you are might disagree with with what mr said leaders have to say. well that was the world as viewed through the looking glass where words mean
3:09 pm
exactly what you decide they mean and in many cases those statements were of the precise opposite of the truth it's not trying other school warships in the south american sea it's america that's got warships in the south china sea it's not china others go nuclear armed airplanes off the coast of china it's the other way around the belligerence is all on the other side than has just been asserted but we both agree on this of that there is nothing all that remarkable about what 2 australian prime ministers have said because trade wars cyber wars propaganda wars cold wars often times pave the way to war and if the whole war breaks out then of course we're in if you'll forgive the pun completely unchartered waters will it be
3:10 pm
a conventional war will escalate to short range nuclear missiles will it escalate to and to our continental ballistic missiles in which case you and i will never talk again rick because the world will be and the end susi arms with which some people approach these existential questions ending of the human race questions in. quite frankly getting to know what the dog was not just a movie bill clinton in my lifetime killed one of my friends the finest woman in the out of world. of the dog maneuver to distract attention from the failings of his administration and donald trump has more than more than bill clinton's problems right now just a few months from the presidential election you gentlemen gave us to come trusting
3:11 pm
points of view on an issue that we want to take a look at and we were certainly glad that we had you both here to take us through it john civilities john galloway thank you sir for joining us for that discussion. in a day of alarming reports let me add another story that we've been working on for you according to 2 peer reviewed studies one from the u.k. and the other from chile the forestation and the rampant destruction of natural resources fueled by human greed will cause more harm that we can even begin to imagine artie's alex will have a bitch has been looking into this. from greenhouse gases. to an insatiable hunger for resources according to a theoretical study featured in natural science reports human behavior has put our planet on the fast track to a catastrophic collapse the paper uses
3:12 pm
a quantitative analysis of the sustainability of current world population growth in relation to the parallel deforestation process adopting a statistical point of view in other words our growing population is calculated alongside human resource consumption rates to evaluate what our chances are of avoiding self destruction the news isn't good when all is said and done the study shows that our civilization has a very low probability of avoiding a collapse the most optimistic estimate standing at 10 percent the report points to the density of the world's forests or lack thereof as being one of the best measures of predicting what the future holds the study's authors moral below nya and geraldo aquino note that if the current rate of deforestation is sustained all the earth's force will disappear within 100 to 200 years however that doesn't mean that human population would last that long life supporting systems would disappear
3:13 pm
long before the last tree died this includes carbon storage oxygen production soil conservation and water cycle regulation according to the paper the progressive degradation of the environment due to deforestation would heavily affect human society and consequently the human collapse would start much earlier the report says this means the next 20 to 40 years. before the rise of human civilization our planet was covered in 37000000 square miles of forest in a relatively brief time here people have managed to bring that number down to 25000000 square miles that's approximately one 3rd of all forests gone when it comes to deforestation the amazon is indicative of what is happening on a global scale the amazon jungle which some call the lungs of the planet has decreased in size by nearly 20 percent in the past 50 years some scientists believe
3:14 pm
that if another 5 percent is destroyed the entire rain forest will dry out and turn into it's a ban a manmade virus have reached in the amazon over the past year helping close in on that tipping point if that were to happen it would not only be devastating to the region but the entire planet as explained by actor and vice chair of conservation international harrison ford at the united nations headquarters in new york last september when a room in your house is on fire you don't say there is a fire in a room in my house you say my house is on fire and we only have one house fires in the amazon have increased by 28 percent since last year many blame brazil's right wing president also in our 0 who meet calls to clear landed brazil's amazon to drive economic development. the scientists behind the study say the only way to avoid a catastrophic collapse is to change the unsustainable levels of population growth and consumption the only other chance is the development of some unprecedented
3:15 pm
technology that we currently don't have both pass would need collective action on a global scale prioritizing our planet over our economy according to the authors of the report the chance of that happening is very unlikely for news with rick sanchez i'm alex myla bitch and this is the nose a great chance as 'd have you watch it let me tell you what we've got coming your way after this break we're going to have a weapons expert who's going to be joining us he will tell us about the explosions that's what he knows as all of us try and figure out what really caused this explosion in beirut that the world is talking about and focusing on we'll be right back.
3:16 pm
a short time ago an american airplane run hiroshima. standing up. to go. on they really didn't know that their chin it's. like most americans growing up after the war the bombs were a great thing they ended the war they say hundreds of thousands of lives on both sides and that's what my grandfather always said was his reason for the decision. truman was hoping for a dual strategy one was to drop the bombs and hope that japan would surrender the number to the americans were trying to send a message to the soviet union there was american poor planning in october 145 chosen 20 targets in russia.
3:17 pm
the embassy in maxwell saki is one of the most sensational stories of our time however media coverage appears to be limited to learning details and political overtones the single biggest question that needs to be answered is how all of this could have happened where was long for spin and will justice be served. no crowd. no shots. actually felt. really strong. just. switch your thirst for action.
3:18 pm
hey welcome back i'm rick sanchez today world leaders are responding to the disastrous explosion 'd at the port of beirut earlier this week by the president of france was of the side of the blast while bringing material aid to the nation as well as the promise of more support other european nations italy germany have promised to send aid as well closer to home israel has offered to take in lebanese medical patients and iran has even offered their support as well russia meanwhile is sending in doctors and nurses to create a temporary field hospital artie's a gorgeous dog has the exclusive details. this is a field hospital in its early stages it is just being built in fact there's another group of emergency workers on the way with more infrastructure but this is where russian rescue as will be taking those engines those still in need of medical attention from off to the blast.
3:19 pm
well everything that you can see around me was erected overnight it was literally an empty lot just it 2 o'clock in the morning last time i was here well fast forward 6 hours and well there's already a small tent city here. well these are search dogs have. been traveling with me or rather i was with them and they will be sniffing out those who may be still trapped and a life under the rubble. the city of be roots is devastated morally physically financially in fact of all places that i've ever been to apart from acts of war zones of course this one with
3:20 pm
all the rubble of destruction and vehicles just abandoned at the side of the road resembles a scene from a post-apocalyptic movie the most and the russian 8 f. aims here at relieving at least some of the pain i'm done of reporting from beirut in lebanon. part now let's take a step back to see the actual blast once again let me let me show you once again what this blast looked like there it is and it's a pretty wide shot right so you can kind of see or as we discussed yesterday where is this explosion emanating from is it coming from the ground is it coming from above everybody to try to work through this information so joining us now is explosions expert renee joining us from miami florida mr basulto thank you so much sir for joining us this is your expertise is there anything you see in the video or what you've read or any of the evidence sort of the reports that would lead you to believe that this is either a case of sabotage or something else maybe
3:21 pm
a missile. it's hard to tell 'd of it sabotages it does not appear to be a missile from what i've read and from the the facts available to us right now it seems to be an explosion of the ammonium nitrate that was being stored. at a facility there's a quite a bit of amount of money in nigeria so let me press you on that let's suppose somebody knew then but there was a money of nitrate there i would almost argue as many experts have an irresponsible amount of ammonium nitrate stored in one place for years but somebody knows that and they say i could blow this thing up pretty easily all i got to do is take a match and boom throw it into that ammonium nitrate i get something like that to happen is that a scenario that's possible that would include sabotage. there are a lot of things that need to happen for disposal like this to occur a lot of. things need to go wrong it's not as simple as throwing
3:22 pm
a match at it or the ammonium nitrate itself is not a combustible or ever it at a high enough temperatures the ammonium nitrate can. become law a tile and one of the decompress on its own so you would need a sustained source of of sheep and a very high temperature which in this case appears to have been the fire adjacent to it you can see by the pictures you can see in the video now that there's a fire a small ring a quite large fire next to this facility and you know what the sad part is that it was probably in stored improperly and stored being stored. usually needs to be in a dry cool well insulated space. it's rare that you have that type of a city has to be a facility specifically for this type of chemical and it with means to order for
3:23 pm
a long time. the serial so slow star city composed 'd and releases and i to. which it is so or could be very bad so you're an expert you've looked at the situation you've looked at the video and the prima fascia that you see in literally before your face is that there was an explosion it affected the stored. ammonium nitrate and it caused the explosion. it makes you it makes us all think then that these reports we're hearing about missiles and sabotage you're pretty much knocking those down right now right we're down to 30 seconds. it doesn't appear to be a missile could it be sabotage possibly. imagine there is very well known to be very explosive devices used in mining operations as well 'd as a sort of lies or. you would have to be in the. know that is going to
3:24 pm
spread to this building or in order for it to be so. you can't rule it out or just a guess as to be don't know but the like of you do this for a living you're called into court rooms to be asked the questions i just called you so i thank you for your expertise on this and for sharing it with us mr basulto rene basulto thank you very much there you have it my pleasure now this tomorrow morning at 8 30 in the morning we're going to know how many jobs the united states added in july despite the koven 1000 surge that we're experiencing remember the june report was hailed as the beginning of the end of the economic meltdown why because well back then the unemployment rate went from 15 percent to like 11 percent 5000 americans were hired back mostly due to the lock down ending in most states so what's the expectation for tomorrow economists are saying somewhere around 1.7 more americans will have gone back to work in july which would mean this quick recovery it is v. shaped thing that
3:25 pm
a lot of people are hoping for that may not be on the horizon not a full grown from 5000000 to one point. right but let me bring in an expert john grace knows a lot more about this than i do he directs investors advantage and he's good enough to join us now i know the numbers are dan but we're getting some pretty good indications of what might happen 1st of all let me just ask you back john what do you think the numbers are going to look like tomorrow morning at 830. well i think they're going to look is good is they might probably won't be as depressing as we might imagine we haven't seen the in here out of course this coping thing is a disaster of epic proportions but let's recognize when we look at the numbers whatever they might be ringing they they kind of are the average which is a good way to look at them but when we look at how this could be 1000 is impacting . minorities and women so we have to keep those things in mind as well they're the front line and in many respects we lost you for just a minute john but i think what you were alluding to is the fact that there's
3:26 pm
a certain part of a certain sector of our economy that is being hit harder than others right and this is where we get into that conversation you and i have had in the past wall street versus main street right right correct i mean for example you know just to look at the state of illinois i'm not mistaken we all remember last year we were crowing about 4 percent unemployment and there are 2 things here when we look at it we need to look at the quality of that and point of the quality of those jobs the quality of those incomes and then in the city the illinois when nationally with the we're at 4 percent on the plane with best number we've seen in about 50 years in the state of illinois that number for black folks is more like 10 percent so you know that that graphically different 4 percent to 10 percent 10 percent if we're national we would not be doing backflips there's a lot of people out there watching us right now in their finking well what what is the unemployment or employment picture and everything i've read in the last 24 hours preceding or preparing for this interview with you led me to believe that the
3:27 pm
real problem experts are seeing is a long term employment. that the days of people getting a job that they're going to keep for a long time may be over. quite some time they're over in japan and they're over here and that's what i'm saying let's not just look at you know a 4 percent increase to income if your income is a 1000000 bucks 4 percent it's meaningful if you're incomes 30 or 40000 dollars 5060 dollars a month that's not very meaningful in these united states of america so if we're talking about the enjoyment of the boats rising on the sea those boats need to rise for everybody as opposed to those without a paddle or those who are sitting on the side lights who can't even get in the water and grace my thanks to you sir for joining us and taking us through will see tomorrow we'll be reporting on those numbers when they come out at 8 30 in the morning we'll have the figures here and we'll try to analyze them for you as well stay safe stay connected check into a portable t.v. if you get a chance you can watch us and keep us in your back pocket of i'd like to say on
3:28 pm
your cell phone in the meantime we'll be looking forward to seeing you again here on the news with rick sanchez where as we say it's always time to do news again. join me every thursday on the alex simon show and i'll be speaking to guest of the world of politics sports business i'm show business i'll see you then. a more robust world that would be one in which we move business that's usual but guess what. we prepared for prime time. as a lot cheaper reduced mobility you know the jury is a lot cheaper than having lockdowns. as the u.s. economy was booming drilling numbers of people when they told us. you can work 40
3:29 pm
hours a in a week and still not have enough to get housing everybody believes. america still is the land of opportunity the reality of it is that we're not financially quantity and american political announcing who are living minimum wage gave many people no choice. that's been a problem with the city. it makes it a whole new stay way out a little bit. before that is no answer because yes that requires resources the most vulnerable are abandoned on the streets to become the invisible us. greetings and sal you taishan as my friends since the very 1st protesters took to the streets in minneapolis over the murder of george ward to the recent protests in portland were groups of mothers fathers and military veterans are joining hands and
3:30 pm
readying their leaf blowers to push back against the tear gas and nightsticks the us establishment class and their mindless pundit followers have tried with all of their might and public relation teams to paint these protesters as dangerous terroristic groups of crazed leftists who who could at any moment burn down your favorite courthouse or church after kidnapping your blonde blue eyed children and forcing them to read howard zinn while listening to k.r.s. one and watching old fidel castro speeches at any moment that's going to happen we saw this last tuesday during u.s. attorney general william bar's testimony to the u.s. house judiciary committee when u.s. representative matt gates worriedly asked the bar about the possible spread of and if these protests in portland were not contained. is it your view then that chief and other violent people engaged in these acts would simply stop would simply
3:31 pm
accept that as their sole victory or is it your expert. opinion having dealt with a number of law enforcement criminal cases and your legal career that that they wouldn't stop that they would go to the next town to the next community and potentially inspire more violence there's no doubt in my mind that it would spread . it would spread to one town up to another and another community oh my goodness there was coming for us all except like always truth gets in the way truth in the form of actual statistics you see it appears that the threat of extreme leftist groups and individuals including and statistically pales in comparison to the violence committed by right wing extremists here in the united states of america according to recent findings by these center and international studies that were reviewed by the guardian of the nearly $900.00 politically motivated attacks and plots in the united states since 1994 only one play tallahassee has occurred from
3:32 pm
an attack by anti fascists and that they tally was the perpetrator himself he died in the attack while trying to carry it out meanwhile during that same stretch of time american white supremacists and other right wing extremist groups have carried out attacks that left at least $329.00 victims dead. so my friends who is the real threat to peace on our streets here in the u.s. of a let's find out as we start watching the hawks. what's going on a city street you want to. see is this joyce state. great city desolate systemic deception is complete show which. so you'll. welcome everyone watching the hawks as you know i'm tired relevant and i was so
3:33 pm
amazed my goodness we need to watch out for and tivo we need to watch out for these leftist extremists except they don't actually or haven't actually hurt anybody since realistically 994 absolutely we known this for a while the president was trying to ratchet up here and he created this outside group that was coming to destroy america as we know it and according to the research like you just showed it was all a lie yeah that's what the hoax it was i mean look when andy 1st kind of came about i mean chris hedges actually had a wonderful conversation just kind of saying hey showing up to protest wear an all black and a ski mask is not a good look in optics no matter how just your cause may be it still the average person sit at home you look threatening. but none of the violence that we've seen happen since the murder of george void and the protests that we've seen happen over and over has been as a result of these folks here most of it is outside agitators in fact on tuesday
3:34 pm
while attorney general barr was telling those scary stories about anti from capitol hill the minneapolis star tribune reported that the now infamous figure the one we also hold me umbrella dressed in black taken in near you know kicking in windows at autozone. in minneapolis just before the looting and all that took place minneapolis says police say umbrella man was a white supremacy. trying to incite george floyd rioting according to their according to the work the police is doing up there they've narrowed down who they think this person is. scary thing about that is apparently if it is this person that they say it is he even went to my high school he graduated from my high school temple bar back in 2006 which doesn't surprise me because there are those pockets up there there are those pockets of right wing extremists white supremacists all over the place you know absolutely and i think that the more we dig into stories like this the more will see that these these groups that are really causing the crazy uprisings who are you know lighting buyer to things where flipping over
3:35 pm
police cars and all of that are your protesters so that people who we see donald trump and his acolytes out here basically throwing all types of shade on me he's trying to real do you think that he's calling chaos what he really needs to william is white supremacy and we know that he's not trying to do that he doesn't even want to acknowledge that white supremacists exist no because the i guess to him is is i don't i mean it's one of those things right get it but again it's the words like you know he's trying to tiptoe because he wants to keep his voters he's putting he's putting the needs of whatever voting block he wants to appeal to before the actual peace and security of the country is what will come to see him absolutely and then the fear that comes along with that is that he's willing to label peaceful protesters as terrorists as anti-american as anarchists meanwhile you have this group of suburban actors who are homegrown terrorists some white supremacist here who are causing all types of chaos and mayhem and yet aside from the report that we're doing right now to be honest i'm not even hearing about this on any bit of
3:36 pm
mainstream media and very few people are actually picking up on the story at all and that's because look far right extremists apparently a lot of this research has killed at least 38 people in just 2019 and that's according to the anti-defamation league far right extremist was possible for 76 percent of all extremist related murders according to the defamation league i mean that is really where we. we have a problem with people in this country and it's and it's shocking that we're not really looking into it i mean even the f.b.i. i was more warned about there's a bill trading law enforcement way back 10 years ago more than 10 years ago you had no one did anything absolutely not in christopher a actually you know he talked about it at one point and then we're seeing this administration still act like none of this is ever happened and it doesn't exist and that data doesn't matter it is i hope that regardless of what happens you it's not something we kind of get into this thing of like once trump gone from school and all this problem disappears it doesn't disappear but i just hope that you know if you remove this person from all you know if you voted out of office that
3:37 pm
somebody actually takes this seriously don't the way. the wonderful world of sports gets a new challenge almost daily with kobe 1000 cases continuing to spread across the u.s. sports teams are faced with major decisions major league baseball team they mammie marlins recently announced they were temporarily polishing their season following the latest round of college 1000 tests the team's most recent test results showed a growing number of positive players bringing the total to 15 players among the 33 who travel for their opening series here to tell us more about how the in milby is tackling and what this means for the league's players is r t america sports producer regina hamm what religion or wearing a grim reaper outfit you have very bad news all the time you do bring bad news all the time i know it's hard because i'm like i know she's not going to tell us anything positive but i still hold out for that one moment where. regina we know that several other leagues have opted to have a bubble for players and personnel to minimize the risk of their covert 19 exposure
3:38 pm
or potential exposure but in l.b. had that option and they chose differently do you think in hindsight 20 twentieth's that's a problem for them how do you think they're absolutely we're seeing it right now as a fact of today 800 fires have now tested positive on that marlins travel squad you are venturing very close to 60 percent of your squad having the current a virus and. in a repro they have the idea they will go to arizona will put everybody in the bubble of the n.b.a. the national a soccer league m.l.s. is doing you know leagues that have actually been successful with this and baseball and we don't want to do that well just condense the schedule have it be geographically determined you know division a determent ok fine on our seeing the result of that that these marlins players who reportedly went out bar hopping in atlanta during an exhibition game are the reason this is happening and will be commissioner rob manfred has an interesting thoughts on the scenario and we should listen to those. i don't put this in the nightmare
3:39 pm
category i mean obviously we don't want any player to get exposed. it's not a positive thing but i don't see it as a nightmare we built the protocols to allow us to continue to play that's why we have the expanded rosters that's why we have the pool of. players and we think we can keep people safe and continue to play think stronger and think you have those pools that this is you shouldn't be using them right. basic question but is there any way for major league baseball america's pastime that you know apple pie the whole bit to put a contingency plan in place in case the season does need to be canceled i think at this point you're hoping you know it's 60 games and $6060.00 that is not a lot of season you run the risk now that the marlins are going to play until it's monday at the earliest so now you're running the risk of missing the give or take $45.00 days where you're not having any games you have no room to make that up and
3:40 pm
will be at this point didn't think that hey we're going to operate like that just like they didn't think the trying to blue jays can play in canada and did not seem to have a backup plan for that either so we were hoping that the league is going to find a way to be like you know what we just quarantine a whole team and remove them where 2 teams in m.l.s. they did that they had to make the test in room selves in the tournament i don't we can't do that because you've already set the schedule. you have already set these events in place and now i guess we'll just have to play patchwork and try to figure out what exactly is going to happen if you have this happen somewhere else examples of like texas where they have higher heard of us cases there regina in terms of some of the other sports you know we talk about college football in the n.f.l. could it be a telling sign since baseball was considered to be at least be safe enough what does this mean now for the outbreak and possibly affecting some of these other sports that the key word is safe enough you're looking at the scene where you're a diamond you're pretty far spread out at but you're still in a dugout you're still in a locker room you're still in places where you can't always do you fix feet apart
3:41 pm
cause trouble is a tackle sport you are touching other people college sports you are touching other people you are seeing the n.f.l. go back to training camp this week they have very strict protocols in place but that doesn't mean you're going to keep people safe and college football is a whole nother level of well we'll just figure it out because again they don't have a commissioner who can make league why decisions every individual conference major conference has their own commissioner to make a decision so it's really going to be happening where it's going to go in the future because whereas as you look at it you know i look at it and say look i understand i understand m.b.a. leggo we're almost done and if we can keep people above all we can finish out the season and kind of have a champion and do all the to me it's like why don't these other leagues just say you know what let's take the hit let's take the last people are going to love us when we come back anyway let's just not do this for the rest of the year and start again next year when we know it's safe it's ridiculous i'm sure you've heard of the almighty dollar of course is a very big reason why these leagues aren't doing that and i think rob manfred is now seeing oh my goodness i maybe should have done this double yes it wasn't it's
3:42 pm
not going to be perfect you will still have that odd case but you want to worry about a travel team having almost 60 percent of its team in quarantine and i mean i don't know why he wants to watch sports without an audience so you know if they believe them in if they got like play audiences. thank you very much regina always a pleasure having you on even though you always bring bad news. so that's what we're going to make sure that our story of good news sometime move forward all right and as we go to break remember that you can also start watching the hawks on the man through the brand new portable t.v. app which is now available on all platforms so you have no excuse you did it coming up we cover a canadian court's recent declaration that the united states get this is not a safe place for asylum seekers shocking now with immigration attorney alan or engineer he will break that down stay tuned to watching the whole.
3:43 pm
summer solution where every summer we look at solutions all the problems they conquer on every other month of the year now today recovering to globalization the
3:44 pm
dollar is asian and china. process which is gained speed but what has set in motion really on december 11th 22001 when china became member of the world trade organization time now to turn to chris france and author of beating the dragon. 54 jets and more than 1300 military personnel are headed to air force base in alaska where is that to say come on i'll show you what's the reason for any type of enhanced u.s. military presence in this area rush up. what is it suddenly about the south china sea that makes it so that it 11000000000 barrels of oil. take
3:45 pm
a look at this map who really owns what kind of says no it belongs to us india says no we claim that that belongs to us both of these countries have nuclear weapons capabilities there is reason for concern so that's why we're going to drill down on this story for you today right here on the news with rick sanchez where you know as we always like to say we do believe by golly it's time to do news again. u.s. president donald trump never stopped ratcheting up just moments away policies for his most heated group. and it's. not just disgusting rhetoric like labeling immigrants as rapists murderers and folks coming to steal your jobs in elections no trump and his cronies have gone beyond employment tory and racist language to
3:46 pm
violate the rule of law in their treatment of immigrants just a couple of weeks ago trump's plans to send foreign students back to their home countries if colleges didn't have campus sessions was walked back you'd think after such a big blunder trump would move on and you'd be wrong he's a laser focused on dismantling daca the obama era program that allows 700000 immigrants to live and work in the u.s. legally since 2017 trump has worked to strip dr recipients of work permits and ultimately deport them. the president came under fire for adding a citizenship question to the 2020 census and even though the supreme court blocked it trump is dead set on finding a way to end it anyway and the chimp ministrations and gilding discriminatory policies against immigrants haven't gone unnoticed by neighboring nations in fact a canadian court this week ended a longstanding deal of allowing the country to send asylum seekers back to the u.s. out of fear that the united states would detain them and deport them
3:47 pm
a clear violation of the rules of asylum here to break down the crisis facing dhaka recipients and asylum seekers immigration attorney eleanor welcome alex. wellen trump has tried multiple times to dismantle daca piece by piece. so you don't usually wait for element come back gone because you know what skype and we got to do you know we got to do we can. it's amazing to me seeing how trump over and over again and now with doc who is essentially saying whatever supreme court says i would do anyway and no one ever really stops them absolutely it's it's compounding to me because every time he gets stopped president finds another way to basically the law and try again and it's something that i think keeps immigration attorneys immigration reform as well as dr recipients and those who are seeking you know seeking asylum on their toes because it seems like this
3:48 pm
administration is dead set on not following the rule of law dead set on trying to punish as many immigration and asylum seekers as they can and to dismantle all things that obama put in place but specifically doc and finally here to come break it down for us is once again alan or is back to write little title difficulties aside we're back where it was i'm glad to have you. and you are so hard to make sure michael moore was moving bass the portfolio last year. champus tried multiple times to dismantle daca piece by piece what is different about this latest round of attempts and why is a conservative leaning supreme court seemingly pushing against. so i think the major issue here is that the supreme court has already decided that he had the power to end daca but he didn't do it the right way and not doing that a lump ago they said that you had to go back to the original rule which meant new people could apply and people could renew their application and what you find is all monday of this week the trumpet ministration can back and say ok we'll do we're
3:49 pm
new will but instead of doing them for 2 years we'll do them for one year and we won't take any new application so that is in direct conflict of the supreme court's order so this is a constitutional problem that is beyond just saying the trumpet ministrations against aka the judgment ministration is against the rule of law because they went to court and it was settled and now they're not living by the rule that it should have been settled by actually today there was a hearing where congressperson europol basically asked the director of the ins are you allowed to go against the rules of the supreme court and the answer was no. and that's basically the result of the hate and fear and also one day in the white garden the president said i am for these dhaka folks and the people who supported the case then why are you rolling back this level of protection for them at this time. a 1000000 dollar question dr recipients are are in limbo and have been for
3:50 pm
several years now i mean they must renew their status every 2 years and have no real way of knowing when the world one in the world comes when the world they've come to know might be ripped out from underneath them what will it take for congress to pass actual conference of immigration reform and what key elements are necessary to protect the rights of immigrants asylum seekers and these doctor recipients. well senator durbin on monday introduced a bill that says we for the dream of the doctor classification so that both houses could potentially move it move forward because as we all know almost 90 percent of americans are behind protection for these individuals who came in as minor but it basically is going to take the same thing it takes for congress to do anything to basically get off of the gavel and start moving forward and get back to law making instead of a little sizing every conversation in the media you are correct or the last an administration is when it's you know when it's sort of addressed for now is it to basically address the issues clear of all the other issues aside
3:51 pm
a budget issues or what have you they need to be paid. them points and alan i'm sure that you probably agree on this one president trump technically doesn't disparage all immigrants just those from certain countries african nations for instance mexico central and latin america he famously said we should have more people from places like move away and he's tried to quell his racism with saying that those with special skills and education would be top priority but even with that only 6 to allow in white immigrants at what point in this nation's history that the immigration debate gets so racialized is this a trump care issue or is it something that. proceeded. well this is the definitely chuck berry issue i mean isn't there a cult or even a stratification and with a start out to 6 and then when $155.00 it's sort of earth japanese nationals and indian nationals but the sort of races undertones of this administration the threat of people coming in is what's really unnerving right because now everybody who believes in christianity and the right of individuals and helping individuals is
3:52 pm
against asylum which is a legal form of entering the country they're actually asking today in that same hearing conservatives are asking think in the asylum applicants actually pay for their own application called $100.00 or even $50.00 for people who are fleeing for their life or this is something that is president of this country that you've never seen before and specifically over this black and brown people the people you see in detention center are black and brown people well the undocumented population of this country represents every nation right there are only concerned with asylum seeker at the southern port of entry not a phylum thinkers that fly over from china or from other countries as a matter of fact i know right now as the largest number of individuals who have actually applied for asylum so you are dead on when you think about these things in addition to that they have a laser focus group with the public start to rule that was put it a day in the supreme court so they could go into action and then just a few hours ago a new york district court put it back a day and saying that now you cannot enforce this law but georgia rule with the
3:53 pm
state department or with you and basically that all the struggle with allowing this country to say if you're poor or if i think you're ever going to be or you're not allowed to come into this country so it's very something influential that sort of hurt people who are right here in our region all those caribbean countries and all those people from latin and south america apparently well living in new york all the years of the president and many members of cabinet never actually took the time to visit the statue of liberty and you would have counted them had an interesting decision to protect asylum seekers by keeping them in canada instead of sending them to the u.s. as i mentioned earlier what message decisions. google not only should have signaled us to the summit here in the united states but also to the rest of the world. it's no something that mentions also done moving away from a global participant in the right from the fundamental human right that we've always discussed canada basically said listen we understand that the united states is our partner we've had a great relationship with them but looking in our constitution based on these
3:54 pm
immigrants come to our country and the way they were treating the u.s. we can not say that the. country anymore and that's the reality so therefore they have moved politics looking at the reality of an immigrant who was mistreated in the united states or the very simple to understand as we move away from the u.n. moved away from humanitarian rights we still have families that are separating california who should have been reunited last under court order who are still separated families of the. americans and everything from as a family around them working at the white house this is a fundamental they are still separated why are we still having this conversation. yes why are we still having this conversation ma'am thank you so much for coming on today educating our audience i always love having you on alan thank you always. and you are having. and finally today while well none of us none of us want to see anyone flying the flags of the confederate south anymore 1st because it's racist
3:55 pm
and represents slavery 2nd because well it's racist and represents slavery and 3rd because honestly give it up the confederacy lost back an 865 it is now 2020 get over it but the blags away but again while no one wants to see these symbols of slavery and oppression flying anymore it is also important to make sure that they can better player one is fighting to take down from public display is. actually a confederate flag because that is what happened to poor kirsten and greg often back or owners of the nordic pineapple in st john's michigan the often bikers are owners of a civil war era mansion turned bed and breakfast in st john's and since 2018 in celebration of kirsten's norwegian heritage have flown the flag of norway proudly outside their front door alongside the stars and stripes until now after their besieged by complaints from folks who thought they were flying the confederate flag yes people actually confuse the country of norway's flag. for the southern cross
3:56 pm
flag of the confederacy wow and they had to take the job they don't have any templates to meet their eggs that they are made of the same color it's like i get the instinct hey if you see the can better take that down file a complaint and you as well you should but make sure do your homework make sure that's where you're actually starting to get them all right everybody deserves over here today remember everyone in this world we're not told that we love them up so i tell you all with all sincerity i love you i robot interrupt and i'm a music i keep on watching all those hawks out there and have a great day and night everybody. else seemed wrong. but all wrong just don't. get me
3:57 pm
that you get to shape out these things become active. and engaged because the trail. when something find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. thinking of getting a new puppy once we got our shots no problem was he didn't know until he was trapped in this tiny little wired how much we're going to need a crate with him he will just start freaking out and she will want to spray many were near. breeding dogs or caged in in 2 main conditions on puppy farms i mean 67 years you know they've been locked up in a cage outside you see no protection from the weather the heat you know the cold air the rain the snow the founder nothing they have no protection. to get what you

. can get through kid a. across the us cruel puppy mills are supported by dog shows on pet stores most of the puppies that are coming from these large scale factory farming kind of operations are being sold and at stores even joined a good businesses are involved like cargill among some to there has been a shocking amount of organized opposition to adverts to increase the standards of care for dogs bred in commercial breeding for so many most of that opposition is coming from huge agricultural groups and industries that have nothing to do with jobs don't buy dog on o.t. . a more robust moreover would be one in which we move business as usual but guess what. the prepared whole car does. a lot cheaper at reduced mobility of the jura it's a lot cheaper than having lucked out. by
3:59 pm
the demick no certainly no borders and i'm just delighted to nationalities. just as americans we don't come with me we don't look like seeing the whole world needs to be. judged. come in a crisis. we can do better we should know. everyone is contributing ajor own way but we also know that this crisis will not go on forever the challenges create the response has been so many good people are helping us. it makes us feel very proud that we're in it together.
4:00 pm
this is boom bust the one business show you can't afford to miss or in washington coming up markets continue to surge but those numbers don't seem to fall in line with the real economy is us weekly jobless claims continue to mount it is the fault of uncertainty is clouded the global economic outlook investors are rushing to safe haven assets like big point and gold straight ahead we take a look at the moves with some crypto pros we have a packed show today so let's go and dive right in. and we lead the program with the disconnect between u.s. markets and actual economic data now weekly jobless claims total 1186000 for the
4:01 pm
week and in july 31st the u.s. labor department reported on thursday now this came in below economist estimates of nearly 1500000 jobs lost and fell 249000 from the previous week marking the lowest level since the start of the pandemic now while this all sounds very positive keep in mind the continuing claims are still at what 16100000 despite dropping 584-4008 couple this with that massive contraction in u.s. g.d.p. by 33 percent for the 2nd quarter of this year and you would think markets should be in shambles but that's not the case since testing lows in march at the onset of the pandemic here in the u.s. the 3 major indices are thriving the nasdaq has continually pushed a new record high and now the s. and p. $500.00 well it's just a few percent away from setting new records which were established previously in february of this year while the dow hasn't been able to quite. it to pretty cold it died team levels the index has made substantial gains over the last 4 months so why
4:02 pm
is that well to break it all down this disconnect that we're seeing let's bring in some expert analysis from co-host christiane i am cheap market analyst at eva trade thank you both for being here and i am it's great to have you back so let's start off with you what's propping up this market and clearly this is unsustainable so where are we had it. thanks for having me as always there are 2 major factors that really driving this truck market price of oil of its support from the fiscal and monetary policy front because without this support no matter what the whatever happened there was no way for this market to awful and it's cheap these levels where we are today now the stock market is still waiting for and now the midwest the 2nd stimulus package and that is largely 'd to push the last thing in its as you mentioned and yet the dow index back in the positive territory for this
4:03 pm
year because it is down minute a 4 percent why the s. and p. 500 index is written a biscuit often cheating is all kind of less than one percent now what is the other factor the 2nd major factor which has been really driving the stock market is the optimism around prono our respects and that maxine being. like coming to the market before the end of this year this is what the market is really interests and painting the market is really feeding that ok that was could be behind us with respect to one of our s. and from here on long in looking reach the last ounce that can certainly restrain the recovery economic recovery process but he wouldn't have that much of an economic and personal power that we've experienced back in march or during the 1st or the 2nd quarter of the ship all right now i don't want to give nancy. here in iowa but i do have a follow up on this you know we often talk about why there are things so positive
4:04 pm
but the question is is there a catalyst that can cause this bubble that burst do you see that happening anytime soon or with all of the factors that you just mentioned are going to continue to go up. there is always a possibility because right now market pundits have been comparing the current market means that what happened back in 2007 during 'd the financial crisis remember we have that 4 string and then the market dropped and a drop to a substantial level so right now there is no doubt that the current. problem are a stock market rally is primarily contribute to the contribution comes from retail investors or the us will call that what we would it's right now if these one who has the come out of a market and if the economic data begins to rule over what we're going to do we're going to fall back to the fed we're going to say look for more stimulus package from the fed do for that i mean the fed doesn't have many bullets
4:05 pm
left in terms of the monetary policy the only thing rich is the left foot of and which is the most common in fact or the most prominent think of that for the fed to use is their contribution is their currency separation 'd is there any intervention into the into the stock market and i am speaking of direct intervention through the an e.t.f. just like how the fed is doing in the in the e.t.f. of the corporate e.t.f. so i mean that is the only that's the next step from the federal reserve but what can really break this corner are a stock market rally if we don't get the coronavirus seen by the end of this year it's based on a lot of us the numbers continue to you. and then the situation continues to go. out of control that can certainly prolong the recovery process that can certainly be you know take that the shit out of her reach 1st still are those. market crushed to a new level and of course what about chris being here now retail has been
4:06 pm
a sector that has been hard hit amid the pandemic but now that it's having a domino effect on the real estate what's the story there yes the u.s. retailers they're one of the main groups that have been heavily hit by this pandemic and the subsequent shutdown so we've heard numerous companies now declare chapter 11 and those companies include j. could neiman marcus and taylor even they're all using the chapter 11 bankruptcy in order to quickly get out of their costly long term leases and shutter thousands of stores now but this move kind of threatens to up and huge swath of real estate market and about half a trillion dollars for the commercial mortgage backed securities market so this is quickly becoming a tsunami of retailers now just rejecting their leases which will have big ramifications for the mortgages held by the landlords who are very opposed to this so landlords now are feeling the pain and companies are just c.b.l. and associates the owner of more than 100 shopping centers in the u.s. they are now preparing to file their own bankruptcy after rent collections debt so 16 percent of retail prop loans in the sea by they were delinquent in july so now
4:07 pm
as many as $25000.00 stores in the u.s. are expected to close in 2020 mostly within shopping malls and this is only the beginning as cushman and wakefield estimates that 10 percent of already occupied retail location a 1200000000 square feet they will go vacant by the end of the year and so officially now more retailers have filed for bankruptcy than any other year on record in history and now kristie as the pandemic continues all parts of this economy fraud is on the rise as well u.s. losses from kroeber virus related fraud have reached nearly 100000000 since march tell us about that yeah so this is a really interesting phenomenon the criminal industry surrounding cove it has been exploding with complaints of scans nearly doubling in most states and this includes all scans and criminal activity surrounding covert from fake stimulus checks. 2 shopping scams and fake cares and
4:08 pm
a study by the consumer protection group showed that california florida new york texas and pennsylvania were 5 of the most targeted states combined they account for more than a 3rd of the more than 150000 instances of covert fraud reported by the f.t.c. nationally so in total victims have now been swindled out of about $97500000.00 to date and this is a really unfortunate phenomenon that in desperation in the midst of a deadly pandemic that is turning people towards a criminal activity in order to make ends meet not that anyone is supporting this but price gouging and other criminal big activities and products can have also become widespread as well promising everything from immunity to kobe cures and everything to unsuspecting buyers only to then steal the victim's credit card and identity and now i am i you're sitting there joining us from london right now so and we've talked obviously heavily about central bank intervention here the bank of england is actually saying now that there is a possibility they're not really want to do it but it's in their back pocket of negative interest rates what can you tell us about that. and we know anticipating
4:09 pm
for the bank of england's to go down and harm if you. take meetings by the. lady are you listen to what all day with the bank of england has done a lot going to call the massachusetts 'd 'd hawkish but it was always very longish because the president is getting the virus from his program the bank he seems comfortable with what the coronavirus. the infection because these these people believe that it's rather tricky slot they do not see the situation becoming. as bad as it is in the us you believe that the us. g.d.p. the unemployment rate and the rest of the low well which. jobless benefits but you guys are just exist. not to mention the master
4:10 pm
is also right despite i think. the time being is keeping his options and he's not ready to jump into negative territory. specters interest rate. christiane moema slam of eva trade thank you both for breaking that down for us today thank you. and let's take another look at the global spread of covert 19 in the efforts to control the spread of the virus with r.t. correspondent sorry sorry where are we on the ground right now more than 18800000 people around the world have been diagnosed with kovan 1000 while the global gold that's told scuse me has surpassed 714000 but more than 11200000 have
4:11 pm
recovered now in the u.s. more than $5000000.00 have been confirmed positive for covert 19 and the death toll now has surpassed 162000 while 52 percent have also recovered now taking a look at the u.s. economy in the u.s. in the u.s. i say nearly 1200000 americans have filed for unemployment last week now that's an increase of about 250000 from the previous week but still it's pretty high and still is the lowest since amended march now as you can see these are weeks right down here so for 20 weeks in a row at least 1000000 americans have filed for unemployment and so far in total more than 55300000 americans have claimed for unemployment since have pandemic began brand and negotiations are taking place right now over the next quarter in 1000. stimulus package which president trump said on thursday that he would likely
4:12 pm
move forward with an executive order if white house and congress do not make progress in their negotiations will have to see where that goes brant obviously the race for the vaccine is on where are we in the u.s. when it comes to that so right now a 3 companies are working with the u.s. government and which is pouring billions into developing the cloven one teen vaccine now those 3 companies are the most promising and moving quickly very quickly into phase 3 trials which is a final stage before seeking approval for safety efficiency and dosing before it actually hits the market now those 3 companies are mcgurn a pfizer and no overacts now madeira not the 1st one is a bias a company based in can bridge massachusetts and is the only company from these 3 that's developing the vaccine with the help of the u.s. national institutes of health now they're out of phase of 3 trial was announced
4:13 pm
just last week and it's going to involve about $30000.00 adults at $89.00 a clinical research sites across the country now so far more than half of their participants reported side effects normal for a vaccine which include things like chills headache muscle pain and fatigue now the next one then there is pfizer that's right now developing more than one vaccine when partnership with german company bio and tech now the most promising one is there be n.t. $16.00 to be to a vaccine and it's moving into a combined phase $2.00 and $3.00 also started last week so they're going into phase $2.00 and $3.00 together now if the trial is successful pfizer and bio enteric have said they're on track to seek a regulatory review as early as october and if they get an emergency authorization from the f.d.a. which. very likely the plan to have about 100000000 doses by the end of the year
4:14 pm
and about 1300000000 and by the end of 2021 now those side effects with bad drugs are generally mild to moderate lasting about $1.00 to $2.00 days which also include fever for tea and chills now lastly there is no over no over x. which is a maryland base bio company entering into phase 3 trials next month so in the fall and phase 2 trials have showed that the participants god the vaccine had levels of anti-bodies that can fight off the virus that are 4 times higher than those developed by people who have recovered from colvin 19 so that's very positive and on the safety of this vaccine some have experienced severe side effects including muscle pain nausea and joint pain and those have lasted about 2 or 3 days on average so while there is a lot of this agreements between medical experts there is one thing that they all agree on that the quote in 1000 vaccine is not expected to be ready before the end
4:15 pm
of the year brant argued correspondents are experimenter thanks for keeping us up to date and time now for a quick break but harry here because when we return safe haven assets are back in the spotlight as the global economy stands on shaky ground just on the other side we break it down with some crypto pros and as we go to break here are the numbers of people. who. no shots.
4:16 pm
actually helps because. when the well is dry no 1st. point should your thirst for action. i'm chris hedges the corporate coup d'etat has destroyed our democratic institutions the commercial media is burlesque part of the reality show presidents expose the trivia lots to see on contact question more. seeing the horrors that arise with money and evil. corporate criminals who trash calculus lives to add just one more dollar to their millions. they threaten they bribe they'll do anything to keep their crimes in the door but the people they've heard are demanding justice their stories need to be told on america's lawyer.
4:17 pm
year thank you for finally. understand you're tired of networks learn. ready to. you know me 'd famous for my views. yours truly ready. i'm holland cook i invite you to climb with me part of the mainstream media buyer and from that higher vantage to glimpse the big picture question more. and welcome back during the pandemic it's no secret that investors have moved to
4:18 pm
safe haven assets in the past that has been traditionally gold but big corn has emerged as a clear rival interestingly the divide between big gold is largely generationally now older investors prefer gold while millennialist are rushing into crypto and because so joining us now to lend their insight is a school bus co-host investigative journalist ben swat and jeffrey tucker the editorial director at the american institute for economic research now but i want you to break down this generational divide for us. yeah it's pretty simple i mean gold obviously just hit an all time high of $2000.00 and older investors who know gold as a safe haven asset they know that it's something that governments around the world strongly desire and want to be involved in and they know that gold's been around literally for amber and so they anticipate that it will continue to be they are hedging their bets with gold whereas younger investors millennial are leaning towards big coin which some call and our own chris the i calls it digital gold
4:19 pm
right it's a safe haven asset but it's also much more portable much easier to access and much more fluid obviously then you know gold would be so we're seeing a clear divide between the way investors are moving right now younger investors millennialist they really are interested in big quoting digital currencies older investors sticking with precious metals now jeffrey would this be the case does it mean that it's only a matter of time until basically overtakes gold as a primary safe haven or is this going to be a situation where maybe as you become more experienced with investing you realize that gold is a little bit more static more safe for you it may not get those big returns but you have the long jetty what are you seeing here now. has a lot of advantages over gold in some ways because of his portability it doesn't take up space it's weightless is easier to get as you said it's actually more affordable you know you. lot of a lot of. people getting their stimulus checks and. their money.
4:20 pm
and it's pretty funny it's also fungible with all the other cryptocurrency is you know if you get involved in an exchange. the markets are pretty big so it's got a lot of advantages gold does have advantages of longevity and that sort of thing. but i don't know i mean i see them not so much as competitors with each other as as being part of people's safe haven diversified safe haven portfolios and by the way i've seen this development since 2013 i wondered when i 1st. began and encountered because i began to play with it you know i saw that it was behaving very much like what you think of as a digital gold absolutely and it's interesting because i mean i've been to several crypto conferences throughout the world and you cover it and when you look at that generational divide you really do see it that it is a lot of millennial is out there now is there anything bad and that can actually slow down because of rise in this space yeah i actually think there are
4:21 pm
a lot of things that can slow it down the biggest thing our governments around the world look we know that the federal government in the united states is not a fan of big coin does not like it sees it as a competitor to the u.s. dollar the i.r.s. hates that coing they do everything they can to make your life miserable if you have it the trumpet ministration doesn't like it but i think beyond that we're seeing rivals in terms of what china is doing with its own digital currency right now which is a central bad digital currency and i think over the next probably 10 years we're going to see most nations around the world if not all of them attempt to move toward some kind of digital currency remember china's digital currency will become effective fully effective they want it by the year 2022 when they host the olympics that's what they're really hoping for but once china goes this route i would imagine most advanced countries would try to follow suit the u.s. is probably the furthest behind of any advanced country in the world and yet i think we're going to see the us ramp up to this and i think that becomes the biggest competitor and stumbling block for big korean because they won't want the
4:22 pm
competition you know jeffrey i actually want to talk about this is big because we generally mentioned big point obviously i know you 2 are very well versed in this so you don't see it this way we're talking about because of the situation going to be that safe haven digital asset or is there going to be a different court in that maybe takes place eventually as maybe when this regulatory hurdles go away are we really like short changing the future when we always mention bitcoin rather than thinking of crypto as a whole here. well it's pick one has the largest network and let's just be clear this network is actually increasing and for me not the latest increase of the prices or not just to lose various is not just speculation and you've seen gigantic increases and volume of trading in the whole of 2020 and then after the lock downs came it really started to move and these are these are big numbers big traders and also you know moving lots of money because it's agile it's expensive to use which i
4:23 pm
think is another stumbling block that i think ben would agree with me that that's a problem with because but but nonetheless this is a serious thing and it's got a huge network it's going to be i think a very long time before in the other krypto competitors will will have the kind of volume and the market cap that because it has to some of these other currencies a smaller cap those are very useful in some ways more useful than becoming but becoming is becoming that thing that it seemed like it was kind of destined to become after the stop scaling which was you know kind of behaving like a like the foundation of a crypto monetary system and our goal is obviously stood the test of time really it's hitting all time high that we see it right now do you believe jeffrey that it's going to continue to outweigh the newcomers that like crypto currencies and like bitcoin or or will it eventually go down. so i have to tell you that the moves
4:24 pm
in gold over the last several months have surprised me and i don't think we would be seen anything like this were it not for the fear of inflation what the federal reserve is doing right now is utterly insane let me put it away and to be more moderate it's unprecedented. and virtually out of the scene of this. it's just just downright terrifying to look at federal reserve balance sheets right now so that is what's driving the gold price up right now i think without the federal reserve's actions gold would be kind of the same old boring yellow metal that has been for the last 510 years and as the prayer endemic continues we're going to keep an eye on this follow the movement of bitcoin as well as crypto currency and of course gold here on boom bust boom bust caused ben swan and jeffrey tucker of the american institute for economic research thank you both for your time. and finally now here on boom
4:25 pm
