10:30 am
some i looked on the mood for bastards in the cloture cofer some are very. good politicians to do something to. put themselves on the lawn. to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president or injury or some one of the rest of. the two like to be for us it's like the before us three in the morning can't be good that i'm interested always in the waters of the hottest. question.
10:31 am
max kaiser this is the kaiser report you know over the years we've covered three stories kind of our signature stories health care america central banks and fracking you know we've been talking about fracking a lot and you know we're going to talk about it again right now stacey yes because you know in the u.k. the fracking czar has quit and she claims that basically she's not able to move forward with fracking because of activists and the u.k. tabloid the daily mail who are very famous for being in bed with the nazis during world war two remember they were promoting the brown shirts and how great the brown shirts were well last week and they said dominic lawson says how the kremlin must be howling with laughter now green zealots have sabotaged our fracking bonanza so basically he blames kaiser report max kaiser in particular and that you had said that claim that factors are the moral equivalent of paedophiles because fracking is
10:32 am
giving british children cancer and then in order to support his claim that this is just propaganda and that you know we are just pushing lies to stop the u.k. from producing natural gas using fracking methods well he cites nato he says according to. the former secretary general of nato russia as part of their sophisticated information and disinform ation operations in gaze actively with environmental organizations working against shale gas in order to maintain european dependence on imported russian gas so apparently you and i want europe to remain dependent on russian national gas and that's why we talk about the facts that will go over soon i'm humbled to think of the british lives saved by keeping the trackers at bay in the u.k. for a economic reason so it's economically on a bubble. number two it's environmentally unbuyable and unsustainable
10:33 am
and number three it has nothing to do with the propaganda that the daily mail is pushing but when you have a population that might be susceptible to propaganda they can easily be manipulated into thinking that fracking is something other than what it is it's not economically viable it costs more to diffract then then then you make them profits it's cash flow negative it's also environmentally negative you destroy the environment incredibly compared to what you could ever possibly legitimize or justify as your output for this hellacious industry so we're going to go over some of those it in fact in those details directly again these are just numbers reported to the stock markets where you have a lot of information by regulators demanded that you show your investors saudi aramco is about to go public of course the u.k. is vying for that business saudi aramco one hundred and eleven billion dollars
10:34 am
in net income last year versus let's look at u.s. shell producers negative six point six nine billion dollars now that's in a country with the reserve currency the u.s. dollar we can print as many much dollars as we want and give them as zero percent interest rate to investors to pension funds to invest in the shale producers in places like oklahoma texas with population at like twenty people per square mile versus in the united kingdom you have over two hundred people per square mile so i want to make clear fracking is a bit of a ponzi scheme and that their money you borrow to frack can never be paid back by what you're taking out of the ground as a frack or because it's cash flow negative in the u.s. we don't have environmental regulations so if they can't earn money with no environmental regulation. it's free money. in the united kingdom they won't make
10:35 am
money so just on the pure money and maybe you want it on other reasons you know national security interests and not importing oil whatever but you know the united kingdom had the north sea oil bonanza so even if you were to get a bonanza and you could compete with russia with cutter with algeria with saudi arabia with the united states and national gas production i'm going to point to the fact that the united kingdom and norway both have the north sea bonanza at the same time surely norway has a smaller population in the united kingdom but norway sovereign wealth fund has over one trillion dollars in assets including one point three percent of global stocks and shares making it the world's largest sovereign wealth fund here's the u.k. sovereign wealth fund zero pounds so even if you had a bonanza it doesn't add to anything because you know as we've covered with that p w c document from about a decade ago they said had the u.k.
10:36 am
had margaret thatcher when they had when they found the north sea oil done what norway did that the united kingdom would right now today have more power have more economic power more financial power equivalent to norway on the global scene had they chosen to just put away some of that income rather than pour all into tax breaks for property speculators so norway and the u.k. share the north sea oil fields norway decided to create the shortage of wealth fund the national wealth fund which is hugely in doubt britain chose to give property speculators free money to speculate in the property market that peaked out is now collapsing so it's a complete round trip to nowhere well that's the major source of wealth in the united kingdom from the individual because certainly incomes have not gone up and there aren't any manufacturing jobs or anything like that so you do have to rely on maintaining this house. well it's so asked somebody in like oklahoma where there
10:37 am
are earthquakes caused by the fracking damage on their property values insurance companies in the united states property insurance will not insure properties even fannie mae and freddie mac. by the way you know any loan mortgage loan backed by fannie mae and freddie mac. and those are u.s. government sponsored entities and they won't back and they won't give a mortgage for any property near fracking but here's china single party rule and this is what has happened in march twenty ninth teen just a month ago china experiences a fracking boom and all the problems that go with it this is in the new york times again there's a thing called a richter scale and it's measured by geologists in the u.s. geological service have will also back the facts of you know maybe nato might contradict this but the actual scientists say there were three big earthquakes and
10:38 am
gal shan in china and the locals got very angry because of the fracking operations nearby which they believe caused these three earthquakes killed two people and wounded thirteen more than twenty thousand homes and three villages suffered damage and nine collapsed completely according to a statement by the county about one thousand six hundred people or displace forced to move in with relatives or live temporarily and four hundred and seventy blue tents distributed by authorities the people of china showed up at their local government offices in riot sort of situation and what has the chinese government done they've ordered a whole to fracking operations in the region you have the fracking industry with any equivocation it causes are quakes we know that to be a fact it uses the fluids to frac the. known carcinogen extents
10:39 am
a fact we know that the economics are such that you can never make money in the fracking business the fracking industry in toto is a money loser there might be one or two individual situations where that's not completely losing money at the moment but in aggregate it loses money and all of these projects will lose money here you have dominic lawson of the daily mail in the u.k. who's not mentioning any of those facts now now he's on many of those yaks former nato spokesperson right he's got a nato spokesperson so to distract the u.k. population from the fact that we help save lives in the u.k. we've saved more u.k. lives you know probably going all the way back to when america belled up britain in world war two and i save so many british lives instead of god dominic lawson. ignoring the fact that i'm a hero to the british people and instead claiming that putin is laughing in a complete non sequitur that's like i'm
10:40 am
a gloss and saying i had tuna salad for lunch yesterday and. israel landed a probe on the moon like this guy is disjointed in the brain he has no cognitive ability to think anymore but he is relying on the organ ery person reading the daily mail a tabloid that has a tainted past to just read his propaganda and not go to google not look just look at financial times wall street journal and bloomberg ok investors go there to look at what their investments are how to allocate their capital look at those publications and fracking and see what they have to say about it china like the united states and other countries has embraced the fracking revolution and hopes of weaning itself from missed dependence on foreign energy sources just like dominic lawson of saying what you know the u.k. is doing this is from the new york times but the public fury that unexpectedly boiled over and gosh and underscores the social and by. or mental challenges the
10:41 am
country must overcome even in a tightly controlled political system so perhaps putin's also laughing at china for having to abide by the violent protesters storming the government buildings defendant cracking stop you know what does what does dominic lawson think should be should have been done in this situation when the people stormed the government offices should they have just said you know this is for your own good well i mean you're right here they rely on over their daily mail a population that has blinkers on they don't go to the internet they don't look at the world they don't have context for this obvious slanderous propaganda dominic lawson and this is why i have been very leery of bragg's it because it's the island nation of britain is already cut off from the world and brags it will mean it's even more cut off it will have more marauding tricksters like dominic lawson pushing this type of dangerous propaganda again finally in this last
10:42 am
minute duke university study finds fracking related waste water rapidly increasing the study found a massive increase in industrial waste water attributed to oil and gas fracking from two thousand and eleven to twenty sixteen duke university one of the best universities in the water world right here they looked at data from two thousand and eleven to twenty six hundred seventeen thousand wells in america we've been fracking for well over a decade and what they found was a one thousand four hundred forty percent increase in wastewater which they also know that this wastewater that noted that the salts toxins organic matter and radioactive material and fracking related to wastewater poses a threat to drinking water supplies so it the more you fact the more water you need the more toxic waste water that is the natural result of it so you know these are discussions that should be had and debates that should be had a great well more to come i'm sure time to take a break and when we come back much more coming your way.
10:43 am
exists is a sticker from the water bottle phone in the stomach of a fish the brand is part of the coca-cola company which sells millions of bottles of soda every day the idea was that let's tell consumers there are the bad was there the litter bugs are throwing this away industry should be blamed for all this waste the company has long promised to reuse the plastic. on to show. them a look at suitable sets for their classes kristie course stay on your phones at a special projects funding you tell the difference. on the line your best bet is the end of a footy team but for now the mountains of waste only grow higher. when lawmakers manufacture consent to instant of public wealth. when the ruling
10:44 am
classes to protect themselves. with the financial merry go round lifts and we don't want. to ignore middle of the room signals. to the real news is really. seemed wrong but. just don't call. any new world yet to shape out just become educated and gain from it equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart. just to look for common ground.
10:45 am
welcome back to the kaiser report imax keyser time now to go to steven talley he's a prolific and amusing twitterer is also a lawyer you can find some of his cup there were pains at the crypto case law minute stephen larkham imax glad to be here i was a follower of yours on twitter and that's all right said this interview coming to washington he said let's try to get stephen on the show so you're a lawyer who's now involved except us to tell us about how you got involved how much time you have about you know what's out ahead of us or sell you know give us the short version i'll give you my my big coin origin story if you will wow oh yeah so i've been practicing law for a long time as my gray hair can attest and in about six or seven years ago i settled a lawsuit using something called
10:46 am
a double blind negotiation where basically we gave a third party the numbers so somebody one person's offer and the other person's in the person's demand so it's not implied both the defendants and the plaintiff exactly that is something different exactly because one of the problems in negotiation is try as everybody has their bottom line number in advance and there's a trust problem we could jump to the bottom line but i'm afraid if i do that you won't jump to your bottom line so we used to third party to do that i was reading about near a psychology of decision making and trust and i this worked incredibly well and it's very expensive well so quickly and i thought there should be software that does this long story short i ended up building software to do this and i taught myself to program i learned as a kid and i learned again and. the problem was i ended up with a centralized database and that's when i discovered bitcoin best quest art and google and i came across their fricken geek kind of yeah you're under i'm a told her yes it's only course you're in because i yeah i'm
10:47 am
a better lawyer than i am a programmer right that's good to know yeah so i don't i don't sell my services professionally as a programmer but it taught me about bitcoin and i learned about programmable money and that's actually what's interesting me about bitcoin is the notion of trust let's ask rob and not having a person in between right so now one of the banks they say here is a client is this idea it's center ship resistance and it. it have it's solved the issue of trust yes and so formal from a legal perspective from a law perspective so you're not coming to this from where so many lawyers are involved now because they're involved and they are looking at the ice yellows and the securities or the securities laws are you coming to really from on the tax side in that this does solve psychologically speaking a question. of distributed to the census that's a term used is that is i correct that's i wouldn't personally use that term because that's not how i thought of it i thought of it as being able to program money and
10:48 am
not having to set up not even to set up a bank or not have it have an ask what if we could negotiate something where we didn't have to have a third party that's there looking at the other problem that a saw from a so my software business failed everybody's entitled to one my wife says only one . so i stuck with law but because i had learned a program i started helping people build software and i had a client who wanted to be able to send a penny. electronically and there was the only way i could figure out to do it at the time was using a pay pal using something called a mass pay p.-i pay pal is of course a centralized ledger but the other problem that crypto solves. sometimes depending on the transaction fees is micro payments vast micropayment so for me it solves that interesting tactical problem to right so let's talk about more of the legal aspects that people associate with crypto right now it's just especially in the last year or so that the initial coin offering now a stockbroker for
10:49 am
a long time and what i saw the first initial coin offering documents come through i said this is a security and i know the securities act of thirty three and thirty four and i know that yes they say if they looked at it they would say this would be a regulated by the sic by the city so what is your thought going forward is it was that your reaction that they were flagrantly kind of step in the face of the s. and say and what's the future now is that the whole market dead or is it going to evolve worse like so what i told people at the beginning when i started representing people in space and i tell people now is that the law's the law when electricity was developed one hundred twenty one hundred thirty years ago cordes didn't say oh what it says now we don't understand what to do it's the same thing here and when you look at courts opinions that talk about crypto does what judges say they say well you know if there isn't a case will apply existing kate's new technology i think that that sort of initial
10:50 am
flurry of i see oh you know you turn out a white paper you get a slacker dischord channel and you raise five million bucks that was a six month to a year flash in the pan that's gone i personally don't understand the attraction of using experimental technology to raise money in a regulated fashion it seems like you're adding a layer of complexity to it but maybe there's something there i think that's sort of it was what two thousand and seventeen two thousand and eighteen until about june of two thousand and eight in. that's not going to happen again so are you in the plan and are you at some firm i'm with the law firms ok so n so are you seeing more work come down through the door related to crypto is it a big is it a burgeoning business capital anger so i'm not i don't to say transactional securities work so that was never a big that work i tend to refer out there certainly
10:51 am
a fair amount of disputes work that we're seeing i call the magic bean disputes i'm seeing a lot of that you know i was a i was promised you know two million cheese tokens and you know you can get more good side what about as a lift i.p.o. because there is now litigation that there was a horribly handled people are down on their left investment and that's. the basis for that because you know i feel as a risk assessments on the prospectus this might not work right i mean if you read the prospectus which everyone should do you know that says a sigh risk investment i haven't followed that incredibly closely i think the arguments that the lawyers will make will be a. they will look at whether or not the representations that were made in the offering documents were consistent with what's happened if people said things that were unsure of management was acted appropriately sort of standard securities litigation this is our great expense that many were going to buy my freedom yeah. so do we need new laws. and as the is the f.c.c.
10:52 am
i mean when i talk to people at these events they would say well the f.c.c. needs to change and i'm like well i think you need to change first and let them all change when they change but you know what do we need new laws and what do you think is going to happen thing i like about the how we test is actually fairly dynamic it's it's a flexible test right out s.s. or as an unfamiliar with it just give it a bill of play to set so that how we test is a it comes from a case involving somebody's name how it's an old case and it involves an interpretation of what a security is under the thirty three act in the thirty. for act and it defines a security investment contract in particular as an investment of money. an investment of money with the expectation of profit solely from the managerial efforts of third parties and that can mean a lot right that can apply to all sorts of situations so i'm not sure that we necessarily need a change here or revision in or an amendment to the securities act or to the
10:53 am
exchange act i would say that there are some areas where we could use some greater regulatory clarity that might be with respect to the bank secrecy act and how that applies to crypto to crypto transactions how the bank secrecy act applies to exchange of assets between different chains some of the regulations when read literally don't necessarily make sense you can almost think of an interchange and interrupt chain exchanges bang if what you're effectively doing is converting one asset to another just like you're converting a word document to word perfect document does it really make sense to apply the bank secrecy out to their shares are i go ahead from the cypherpunks is that basically a big call is code code is speights and speech is protected in america the constitution i have for free speech of the first amendment i believe it's the first and you know it's code and code is speech and speech is code is tax this is already tried with
10:54 am
a pass the encryption p.g.p. p.g.p. right this was already tested they were up on a word that they printed it up and they said it's protected speech what's wrong or is that correct argument so there's a difference between static code written on a piece of paper or typed on a computer in code once it's executed i would say that executable code is not the same thing as a speech that people also have to remember that the fact that speech is protected doesn't mean that you can say anything i heard this i i heard this interview the other day. and the point someone made was look you have you do have free speech of the first member but you defect that you have free speech in the first moment doesn't mean you can go into the bank and hand somebody a note that says i'm robbing you hand over your money so those are two two things i would point out one that's an executable document he says because if i get executed if you don't yes argument that's that's exactly right so i would say distinguish between your freedom to write and your freedom to turn something into. something
10:55 am
that acts or acts upon other people as a well defined in the constitution and any company documents that one might be associated or is it up to the course to interpret that the framers do not talk about software right understood. what do you guys use that to guide you case law that interprets the first amendment and so here is the current thinking is that disparate does not protected under first of many speech and your view at this time. well it depends it's hard to say in the abstract what is or what isn't i would say is in the abstract i would distinguish between static code on a page and executable code something that exists in the world apart from having been written down this is how misconduct something or of other top of my head here but is there like a bit of a confusion about what point is the machine start in the code begin in other words it's a it if it's if it's embedded in the machine in the machine does stuff does that
10:56 am
make any sense that they are a by just not liking any senator you're making sense it's a it's a people are drawing a bad syllogism they're saying software is code. they're saying software is code code is speech speech is protected under the first amendment therefore software including bitcoin software is protected to the first moment the problem is a failure to distinguish between static code and executable code when it's been compiled and is running that is different than b. then there are the written word on page if you look at it others in the wild so for the sake of those who want to believe that they have a minute claiming first amendment rights they should perhaps revise or revisit that because there are same to be a bit of an area to be interpret that conclusion yeah right so that is not
10:57 am
a get out of jail free card it's not and people can hear this and say well palli is a status shill i can do whatever i want he doesn't i'm not saying you're saying that but but i have this experience on the set it was a bass so this is another the first time anyone's ever sent out of a center so must yes something exactly what i was a cat you not but oh oh i've got another bad so lazy for way before i forget and i also ask every lawyer i meet what's the best depiction of lawyers on t.v. in the most realistic one who think is really really good what paper chase was not lawyers on t.v. that was also law school and they actually similar you felt that it resonated with their experience it absolutely did. i don't know that's not the question as actually no it's not right and so my question answer that question time. so law and order is not like actual practice but some of the courtroom scenes are correct you know in a lot of yeah you know how the music rises when sam waterston is a obsolete now it happens all the time or the music always rises now but one of the things that's true about that is one way that you get
10:58 am
a witness to tell you what they want as you get them off are you a courtroom lawyer did guess what it is europe you're defendant there defender now you're a prosecutor you know i'm a civil litigation i like i said i represent both plaintiffs and defendants but mostly but and closed doors in front of the arbitrator already out there in the doorway that i would had a three week trial in broad federal court in brooklyn about a year and a half ago as my last trial now i stand up in court instead of the art yeah well this is fascinating always you're going to do more you and i we have to say goodbye sadly i was just getting into this anyway anyway thanks to come on the end of it every time all right that's going to do for this edition of the kaiser report with me max kaiser and stacy herbert like some gusty even tally you can find in my crib what's your current trip krypto twitter handle it's stephen deepali at stephen deepali it's very simple isn't it pretty much on a catch us on twitter it's kaiser reports and i stand by our.
10:59 am
plan even though the. underwater. total. money we didn't want to. go to both states is that move for you. so what we've got to do is identify this. threats that we have it's crazy. let it be an arms race on all sides very dramatic development only mostly. i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down and talk.
11:00 am
and. donald trump and vladimir putin discuss the crisis in venezuela just hours after a u.s. congresswoman is slapped down by the secretary of state for suggesting washington's actions there have only been making matters worse. bullying in the use of sanctions to eventually into mean blaming america first in this way it's not only ignored it's disgusting. u.s. school is considering whether or not to paint over a dedicated to founding father george washington after the artwork was deemed at risk of traumatizing native american and african-american students this hard work which is a tribute to this person to the legacy of this person is authentic.
