8:00 pm
esearch makestay. i enjoyed the network. new new new new room. calling on rtm on capitol hill the senate banking committee and debating over president obama for federal prisoner share we could be watching history in the making. republicans don't want any talents nomination that is the latest ad. and what's your number just about everyone in the last of some type of debt attached to their name. one group is working to reverse the act by not tens of millions of dollars worth of debts and in sending a letter to the borrower saying that
8:01 pm
is all they forget it. so who holds the key to a bunch meaning thousands of americans from their debts the answer coming up. and take a look at this it's the world's first three d prints and natalie gun and could revolutionize the second amendment as we know it falls into one of the men who helped create a gun and today is that the report. yep there is fourteenth find him in washington d c and i am up and you are watching artsy the lady in this hour with a trip down capitol hill where senate banking committee and that the senate banking committee met to date orange and yell and confirmation hearing. hill was appointed by president obama to replace ben for ninety as the next chair of the federal reserve if hillary is confirmed should be the first woman to ever hold that position however the sluggish economy
8:02 pm
and high unemployment. this hearing was anything but friendly own boss has to aaron a great sounding dollars to make sense of this hearing for us. federal reserve vice chairwoman janet yelling face the senate banking committee on thursday for her confirmation hearing as the next head of the central bank now during the hearing on she committed to promoting a strong economic recovery and will ensure that there'll be no monetary stimulus for mobile anytime soon. also during that hearing senator mike crap that we wasted no time grilling the island over if and when we'd see any end to quantitative easing. jenna just continue indefinitely. i mean is the labor market doesn't improve to the point that you reach your target how long can this continue do you agree that there has to be some point by which we return to normal monetary policy tool. i would agree that this pro korean cannot continue forever. if there are costs to risks associated with the program and only one on to say that the fed takes
8:03 pm
risks to financial stability very seriously and that beth and recognizes that the longer these programs go on the more prominent as risk could be. and while today's hearing and push down on track to be the next head of the central bank isn't without any sort of question now senator ran all. he said that he's going to friends' delayed her confirmation process. if his bill is a look at first merely jenny owens and in favor of transparency and yet that's all we're asking for is to open on to a year after the fact that regular present for that nomination being approved the sheer we've given all that we've filibuster. the old days you please hold on to keep it forever even if i stand on the floor and filibuster and a personal passion. i go in order for today she's going to be content in all likelihood he asked that my kids after all in all likelihood will soon see yelling at the next top dog of the federal reserve reporting from capitol hill area a r t. while congress debates the future of
8:04 pm
the federal reserve a group of thai protesters is taking matters into their own hands with its bowling jubilee for almost a year now. the strike that group as an awning consumer debt for pennies on the dollar on the secondary market and then immediately forget it no strings and no commissions a clean start for people's movement that the group has now raised over six hundred twenty thousand dollars anna spent four hundred thousand of its toe polish i was fifteen million dollars of tax that that belong to two thousand six hundred and ninety three people from forty five states as follows puerto rico. and the group is planning festivals and assemblies in new york and several other states this friday to celebrate its accomplishments i was done earlier by strike debt activist john paul roche and i asked him if he had expected this kind of sixth sense at the outset. actually we did because we found out in the secondary debt market that that is being sold for
8:05 pm
pennies on the dollar and if you can get into that market and purchase today. you can abolish it and believe a lot of people from their suffering their undue suffering. the thing i was totally forseeable. let's talk about what kind of get your group is going after. ok we are currently we've been going after medical debt but now we're having a shift in transition at least here in new york when looking at going after student debt and trying to build the student movement. we have chapters that are all across the nation. and they are going to be focusing on finding creative ways of attacking this system of debt this protest and pernicious system and then on but ultimately i think the thing is it really comes down to us as individuals saying no to this system. and there are many ways for us to do this like i'm basically for example ninety five percent of debt that is disputed it is absolutely not collected
8:06 pm
so there is one cool in the toolkit of like individuals to actually do something to take power back in their own hands unlike relinquish themselves from this system of debt bondage absolutely not what the questions that i heard a line and is on all home loan companies are responding to this kind of campy community could push it. no we have not but i mean you never yet cook who knows we can happen but that that the point is for us to actually to keep the fight going to keep pushing the nt and to refuse refuse these illegitimate debts like for example sixty two percent of medical debts or bankruptcies are tied to medical debts. an old large chunk of those people actually had a health insurance to like these that the point is these debts are illegitimate and immoral some people should be refusing them on that basis and like with the tools that i said before you know
8:07 pm
there's there's lots of ways to do that like disputing or refusing and is already an army of sixteen and debtors who have not been paying their debts this. add millions of them who have not been paying their debts and that's the form of of refusal right there the thing is what we need to do is figure out a new a new model of unionization. words are not connected to the labor and two jobs were actually to something else to do our debts or to whatever else we want to unionize and collective eyes about to take our power to veto to give ourselves some breathing room and a system that continuously crushing us from all sides. obviously this high tech campaign is not going to be able to white americans of all of their debt. this just too much of it but well i know from you is what is the ultimate goal here. the ultimate goal is to really bring awareness to people that these debts are
8:08 pm
illegitimate and that we should not be engaged in this kind of on this kind of system or were being taken advantage of. for example with the ruling jubilee with what we're doing it makes it very obvious that he's in debt collectors there are dead the lenders in themselves and of themselves are are more than willing to write off his debts right because we're buying them for so cheap. today is if they're good they're willing to write them off my lappy willing to break them off to you when the bank. so that's and that's more ammunition like i said but these these kind of like school kids that we have that as individuals if a debt collector has given you a call. i mean you have any mission right there to stay cold out. i know you've bought my dad for super cheap for pennies on the dollar. now you have moral weight to say i refuse is that you know it's it's completely in the village and it might have in a system where you have an education
8:09 pm
that's focusing on teaching us how to exploit each other in the next weekend. like those debts to the education system are intelligent and we know that you hide your true that it's reaching its one year anniversary on the fifteen then you have celebrations planned as to when the car to seeing what comes after an aircraft that future strength that activist john roche thank you so much they do have a great day megan. well this morning the sun and listen to you last line for state agencies explain what keeps the mop that nights. that's right the director of the federal bureau of investigation the acting director of the department of homeland security and the director of the national counterterrorism center explained what the majority of the major threats out the whole house on land or if we are according to fbi had james cooney in the us is constantly facing an array of that. terrorism remains number one. police said the threat isn't limited to the middle east africa is on the agency's radar as well
8:10 pm
specifically east and north africa. and while terrorism is still the main concern of cybersecurity is quickly climbing up the ranks because as cooley said that much of america's most sensitive data is stored on computers at number three is active shooter tracts. call me and randy years who is the acting secretary of the dhs said that the threat of online attacks. what often just to find more wind reaching legislation on cybersecurity that would allow agencies like the fbi in the ajax much more access to private data elsewhere i meant no law makers are trying to make government more accountable for all of the demon that it does count as result of dr and spying. this filly is one of the many in that ad is in response to you and we're snowed in for weeks but it doesn't seem to stop the surveillance as much as it does to make the techniques that use more
8:11 pm
transparent. democrat senator al franken and republican senator dean heller introduced the surveillance transparency act of twenty thirteen and this is what it entails their fires the garment or annually report on the number of flights that court orders it creates a general categories of information collect it and the number of americans it collected information on among other information and sell all that would be a must it would also allow companies to volunteer data that is requested from an ad like the number order the company received and complying with the categories of the information in our pastoral lease and the number of users whose information was handed over to get the idea of what companies are not allowed to share looking at this graph from google or non crap i should say shown his requests from fines. they are not allowed to share them or throw up or less same receive or play
8:12 pm
with. some of the witnesses testifying today to voice concerns about this bell. we do continue to have concerns that some other provisions raise significant operational or practical problems while we believe it is possible and appropriate to reveal information about the number of targets of surveillance count the number of persons or of us persons whose communications are actually collected even if they're not the target is operationally very difficult at least without an extraordinary investment of resources and maybe not even that. sounds too much at heart to report on tactics hands but not to conduct the surveillance it's out. meanwhile global another tech giants have headed to the hill to flex their lobbying muscle. lola has now surpassed northrop grumman to become the eighth biggest spender of lobbying money in dc. here also from the lions the number of other requests they've gotten from the us government in the past six months as you can see it's almost eleven thousand so you
8:13 pm
can see why i haven't done in the spring. and this just might be that good beginning of what we see what agency is like the dhs an nsa being pitted against the top giants had been relying on for information. the national security agency's massive surveillance programs have been scrutinized during various killing at hearings on capitol hill. but now it seems the program will have its day in court. comes in the form of a motion for a re trial of the somali immigrant who was convicted of conspiring against the last thirty six year old abbas ali mall and is a cab driver from sandy a go. he was granted asylum in the us after trying to escape the violence in somalia. erm agencies started looking into wall and as a suspect back in two thousand worry. in two thousand ten he was arrested with three other somali immigrants and in kind with multiple counts of conspiracy after he was caught speaking with one of the leaders of the group also
8:14 pm
bought and then he sent the group eight thousand five hundred dollars to support quote . only in the industry were convicted by a jury and are set to be sentenced on november tt bike that doesn't mean its case closed in on line at the edward snowden revelation that the nsa claim the wall and was a prime example that mass surveillance programs work to thwart terror plots. both tylenol in case. we knew at that time when we made the aquarium was when you remember that we have reasonable suspicion was affiliated with any group by me in the homeland that number was in yemen somalia those associated with al shabaab in order to find a needle it matched up against that number we needed a snack that's what the premise is in this case in them that point. it just before somebody in a deck where you said this is good to connect to a number and send a bill that would've been as surprising as if he'd said that members connect with this place in yemen. now
8:15 pm
online and is a liar have filed for a pre trial because he argues that the extent to which he was monitoring using section two fifteen and section seven and two of the fines act violated his first and fourth amendment rights. he also says that keeping finds the materials of the hands of his attorney is a violation of due process so in this case could be the first time that americans have the chance to see what the courts think about the constitutionality of the nsa is mass surveillance programs. and earlier by marcy wheeler says reporter for in the wheel dot net. i asked her what is really on trial here. one thing specifically or the nsa is a surveillance program. he's the only known person who lands. tipped by c section to fifteen which the contract map program and he was prosecuted for sending less than ten thousand dollars township god and sunset time we discovered that the entire prosecution rests on
8:16 pm
the section to fifteen program the kids. his lawyer since august and trying to say wait a second. this program is heating up and adjusting the case really just isn't all that interested to note that yesterday the cure and it came up again and the judge then said smith. the maryland which is a nineteen seventy nine case that talks about one's own record for one person on any kid really want to deal with the constitutional issues and that nineteen eighty seven k's obviously is that quite sad quite dated played out well before any of this nsa masses surveillance aren't happening that we know of. then add that with this case have been really up for re trial had not been for edward snow and sleet. now i party actually wonders whether he would have ever been indicted for it not for that governments need to have a success story here because we know as of twoand and nine. they hadn't had any
8:17 pm
we know that they were boasting about having time preliminary investigations we know that in two thousand i the fbi said this guy isn't worst britain tidy because the reason is he sending money to somalia have nothing to do with terrorism they have to do with defending his ancestral home. and then a year later all of a sudden you win. when the nsa has to keep the congress to get this pre approved all the sudden we have been indicted in so i think he would never have known we'd never been able to raise these issues were it not for effort but i also think we should bring real questions about whether cutie even then and i did. if award for the need to show results for this program there really has. and really leads into my next question which is what they are not evidence that went out this nsa surveillance to have indicted and convicted him and his three co conspirators. it would never come back to him we know that they investigated him in two thousand and three the afghan found no reason to be found no evidence of criminality
8:18 pm
and then in two thousand and seven. they can directly found and this and this is based on the executive branch testimony be indirectly found him in conversation again and correctly when a townhouse about moral or may not deny row. and everything that follows can offer that bona drag nets. we don't know what indirect means we know that that's you know they can go three copped heaps of man and he was three stops away i know his defense claims that intercepts that an epidemic lenses to this is the somali war alert worked this mullet were alert. obviously the jury didn't agree with that but it all. i'll scan and one of the big questions is if the government using this section to fifteen is the sole basis for probable cause to get warrants american people. no if there is always proudly say right now the judge is still deliberating whether or not
8:19 pm
ery child will happen in the first place but his theory the re trial. how likely is it that we will actually cnn as a representative appear in court and explain its surveillance tactics well hey it's actually interesting as the judge yesterday said that he was only can a jury to decide a free trial issue today at two o'clock california time so where to know pretty quickly and and that's one of the reasons why it's it's pretty clear that isn't going to get real consideration to this pre trial motion. now if aapl you know what's happening at the same time is that. no worry after the defense of mixed emotions. then the government releases bass them information about the many abuses of its programmes that were in place when it first tipped moment which was two thousand seven set was before the worst of the pieces. the government claims for cleanup. and i'm nt and silky then over the course of this tea three month period to attend a vast amount of tea to add new
8:20 pm
information released and we know that the government is considering releasing another possibly very central. i support opinion from two thousand six. on the same day that mole in with the sentence if he doesn't get any trial so i think you know i don't think anyone's nsa is at a shop a week to buy declaration. but i think that there is growing evidence that the program itself was fun than actually applied the start even according to for example former assistant attorney general to the christian said well maybe the first opinion wiser audience. that's the one to authorize it will be on the phone collection on the nile and so on. i think that there's a lot of evidence that was problematic the star and that evidence is coming out so i think if it were an appeal or something we might be able to see that evidence in one place and i see there are just so many question marks when it comes to this case in specific but also the wind or ideas of nsa mass surveillance. the one thing that we do know though is that this case in this
8:21 pm
outreach how potentially trout could potentially set a precedent for the future marcy wheeler reporter for nt wheel dot net thank you so much for weighing and to be standing. also the philippines now release and relief is smile and people are desperate for help the united nations says nearly twenty four hundred people have been confirmed dead in the wake of typhoon eyeing on. officials expected that number to increase the one same workers begin clearing the rubble and finding more bodies something else that can cause that number to friday's access to food water shelter and medical supplies medical experts have warned that people who lack access to these things to fall sick with pneumonia and even donning some of six hundred thousand people have been displaced. and today the uss george washington a riot in the golf at the lakes golf bringing with it troops to help the indian search and rescue efforts as well as
