thank you very. much. that the governor of virginia also spoke about the attack after it happened about how this is not representative of his city and condemned the division that's being seen the hatred rhetoric that has gone on. it's intensified over the last couple months is dividing this great nation the protests actually started on friday night and continued in on saturday saturday a state of emergency was declared for the city and actually all of the assemblies
12:05 am
were declared unlawful and police were trying to break them up here in the city there was a very heavy police presence with many in riot gear and the virginia national guard was also here as well. protests in general they were started in reaction to the idea that confederate monument here in the city would be taken down and so the national white nationalist came here to protest about. the violence that we've seen today is just the most recent example we've seen a lot of division in this country of violence coming from both the left and the right side of the political aisle the u.s. president has voiced his concern over the standoff in virginia natasha sweet is in washington with the latest details the president he released a statement saying that the incident charlottesville is something that obviously almost everyone is following and he condemned the bigotry on both sides calling for unity in the u.s. and he says the hate and division must stop but we're closely following the
12:06 am
terrible events unfolding in charlottesville virginia we condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred bigotry and violence on many shots on many sides it's been going on for a long time in our country not donald trump not barack obama it's been going on for a long long time. it has no place in america what is vital now is a swift restoration of law and order and the protection of innocent lives the president is calling for the u.s. tonight but the country is anything but united at this point i mean we've seen violent protests ever since trump was inaugurated back in january both for and against him and you know while this particular incident seems to be targeted from the left wing protesters we've actually seen a lot of violence targeting the right this past year and one of the most prominent

cases was back in june when the republican congressman was shot during a baseball practice or before a game and there has also been theater performances where the president was killed at the very end of it and you also may recall the video done by comedian kathy griffin where she held up the president's head similar to what you've seen in isis videos political analyst charles i'll tell billie's both sides may be at fault in the charlottesville unrest if the k.k.k. our team were going down there to start a fight shame on them if they were if that was done in the guise of a charity that charity should be revoked and severely disciplined same for the anti for if there are people behind who or are funding it through through charities which i suspect they may be and in provoking violence around the country even in this in the minutes that have passed between the time i was asked to come on the show i walked about a mile through places in new york where there are already protests they do not look
12:08 am
very spontaneous to me they have printed flags printed with placards you know i think people on both sides are spoiling for a fight here and we ought to think very carefully about what actually happened find out who baby guilty of what offenses best to get them and punish them accordingly before we leap to a conclusion as to what may have happened. and we will of course keep you updated on the situation in charlottesville and also have further live analysis on the ongoing divisions in american politics. the speech by. the by think about how to cut it could likely to was critically critically. i. live. at least. i.

12:15 am
territory of guam in the west pacific he also stressed his support for the island in a phone call with the governor. he utters one threat or if he does anything with respect to guam or any place else that sort of american territory or an american ally he will truly regret it and he will regret it fast. quam has now posted emergency guidelines on how to act in the event of a nuclear strike locals are advised to avoid looking at the flash all fireball and to waste no time running for cover those guidelines were released shortly after trump upped tensions yet again in a tweet the president inform the public that the u.s. army is a locked and loaded against pyongyang it was the latest in a series of ultimatums against kim jong il and north korea. this
12:16 am
make it even worse threats to the united states. they will be met with fire fury. like the world has never see the people that would question that statement was it too maybe it wasn't tough enough that is there if the state has nothing to do with there that's a statement meanwhile several media outlets are claiming the pentagon has plans for a preemptive strike on north korea's nuclear facilities and that's raising fears across the border in seoul trying to explain. so what if mr trump goes forward and all these roughly two dozen north korean missile launch sites testing grounds and other facilities go boom there is no way kim jong un take revenge what are they going to aim at. the north korea shover to you and dignity army will launch the merciless own trip decision strikes from the ground. under water so they'd better
12:17 am
stop being reckless and even without the stuff trump wants to wipe out they've got quite the arsenal toy unleashed hell over the thirty eighth parallel for decades north korea has been prepping artillery for that very moment and now what they got loaded and ready to fire are twelve thousand pieces of two barks hillary and twenty three hundred units of multiple launch rocket artillery was. the direction southward is clear where precisely will kim point across here here are two words for you to learn counterforce and how to value targeting south korean and possibly even u.s. military facilities near the demilitarized zone versus an attack to destroy economically critical infrastructure and to cause immense civilian casualties i
12:18 am
mean it when i say immense look at the range of north korean artillery beyond the border millions of people live there more than half of south korea's population so with roughly ten million residents and with almost three million and su one over one million all these cities are in that zone and some estimates say that forty eight hours of artillery rage may kill over one hundred thousand in and around seoul alone but what kind of specific north korean threat have we been mostly hearing about from the folks on t.v. that dramatic escalation. tensions with north korea overnight the regime divides defy president trump with a new threat against the u.s. territory of guam a chilling new warning comes as the rogue nation threatens to strike guam home to thousands of u.s. service members this is a regime that's trying to not only establish its power but demonstrate its power everyone splaying the coward kim's missile range game though even if it is capable
12:19 am
of reaching the u.s. island in the pacific how realistic is the threat of a successful launch a launch that would dog america's so with the. united states there is. very little risk the would be successful. if you are us citizen on the coast of no doubt you're still pretty stressed but hey say that to south koreans from somewhere near seoul they'll be the first to get zapped if mr trump pulls the trigger jenison filmmaker john pilger has been discussing tensions around north korea with afshin rattansi and going underground and you can watch the full show on. trump is a bit of a wimp compared with obama a bomber in. having put american interests wars including the longest war in
12:20 am
that's in the history of having increased the development of nuclear. warheads more than any president since the cold war obama's record was also a super hawk trump has a long way to catch up with he's proud to serve so that's why i really should stop simply looking at trump the man and patrol as a kind of symptom almost a cartoon version of the system. a system. that was produced people have almost brought us to the edge of nuclear war. families in afghanistan's province have been mourning the loss of sixteen people killed in the u.s. and the strike the u.s. military claims that all of those killed in the bombing raid shelters they were enemy combatants but afghan officials dispute that saying the victims were
12:21 am
civilians we heard from an eyewitness and people who lost relatives in the strike. there in my mother killed. my two brothers my mother and my sister were killed. does i don't want this war to end yesterday they dropped a bomb one of the cole and killed several civilians who can accept this cruel attacks against our people we urge the government of afghanistan to prevent such brutal acts they are killing innocent people without any consequences. one person lost five children they didn't kill any tell the burn always learned stay to fight us they just killed innocent women and children meanwhile the u.s. is seeking to change its strategy in afghanistan. reports according to the afghan government these civilians were killed in eastern afghanistan. civilians who were fleeing their villages because of islamic states in an airstrike a u.s. warplanes struck a civilian vehicle along with those killed several more wounded foreign troops
12:22 am
prevented people from getting the injured to safety because of some of them died of . the u.s. government says that that is not accurate it says that only militants were killed we reached out specifically to the pentagon to get a clarification and for more information about the situation we did not receive an answer now this comes as donald trump is talking about reworking u.s. strategy in afghanistan we just heard him speak on it and he says his intention is to make it quote a whole lot less. messy it's a very big decision for me i took over a mess. we're going to. make it a lot less messy but that has been a place seventeen years old there's horrors i read in one of your code and frankly . it's going to be a decision that's for the diversion of now at this point roughly eight thousand four hundred u.s. troops are in afghanistan there joined by roughly five thousand nato forces that
12:23 am
are there alongside them from various nato countries the united states has been in afghanistan for over sixteen years there's been a series of incidents in which civilians have been killed and increasingly in u.s. airstrikes we've also seen afghan security forces being killed much controversy surrounding u.s. activities in the country but as the u.s. intervention in the country continues there have been calls from the military for an expansion of the u.s. military presence in afghanistan now one proposal is being put forward on afghanistan and it's coming from erik prince now erik prince is the founder of a private security firm a military contractor formerly known as blackwater this quite controversial he's proposing that the usa privatized its war in afghanistan there would be contracted people professionals former special special operations veterans that have experience in that theater to go do that work would it be profiting from the war. well we're not there no but in even the again that solves that solution that's
12:24 am
that's capitalism that's that's what it's about now the expanded use of military contractors in afghanistan in other parts of the world raises questions of accountability when such forces violate international law or engage in activities that are questionable but this is just one of the many questions that are raging as the sixteen year intervention by the united states in afghanistan continues. the german city of pittsburgh is trying to keep in the streets clean with armed campaign the president's address people using popular names telling them to use the available rubbish. i think it's a great campaign it will be nice to find your own name and it supports people. in the garbage can so not leave it on the streets. it's good to really do it this way especially to be inside there to encourage people in clean up after themselves and not to stroll on the streets on the grounds.
12:25 am
a local politician who is an ethnic turk defended the initiative saying it's not racist but mainly reflects the launch to his community germany is home to around four million people with turkish heritage a member of the alternative to germany policy told us a lack of integration could be to blame for the backlash. this whole issue is just a symptom of failed integration if you feel that you are sidelined that you'll be
12:26 am
racist discriminated against you easily take offense luckily the german disposal company who started this initiative brushed off all complaints and carried on with business as usual it was just a very very harmless complain i should say these are things that apply to all the people who live in that area it has nothing to do with racism as a tool then again if you want to be offended you will always find something to be offended around for the news is that we're all over social media facebook and our website not salty dot com. the top of the hour with the weekly. i am max kaiser this is the cows report oh man it feels good. to be.
12:27 am
getting new autumn. in our i dream of a parallel universe and in that universe is jim records he's crying. to do is the let's check in with stacy and see whats on a person leave as it were. well up my sleeve we have a lot of geopolitics and jim rickards has been right regarding geopolitics may be wrong regarding crypto currency but you know on there up and down ride the global geopolitics space is also as volatile as the cryptocurrency space but before we go on speaking of crypto i do want to say we have to say that we are on steam it dot com as well as kaiser report i'm supposed to say something about a squirrel and some nuts i'm not sure what that's about but i'm supposed to do that
12:28 am
just so you know we are there every squirrel has not they like to bury them now and so our first headline going back to geo politics and economics there are two inextricably linked in have bigger nuts and others for yes those are the ones i like the acorn so male of the species. so going back to the headline geopolitics economics much of it is driven by the quest for energy whether it was coal or whale oil or oil of course one of the most volatile regions in the world some people will say oh those middle eastern people they just don't know how to run themselves they're backwards culturally or it could be to do with the oil that they're sitting on top of which makes it difficult for them to develop when the empire once they're. well here we have
12:29 am
