hard to determine whether or not the future touched by terrorists or money was imminent and was money team in agreement the answer to both is a strong yes but it doesn't really matter because of his horrible part of the u.s. defense secretary admitted that he did not see any specific evidence to suggest more attacks were imminent it could reveal that i believe it would have been for embassies the president didn't say when there was a tangible. inside a specific piece of evidence what he says he probably he believes are you saying that if i invent one i didn't see one with regard to 4 embassies now some countries believe the us is responsible for our school eating this conflict and doing so without hard evidence we discussed some of his assassination interims claim that he didn't require proof of a threat with a number of middle east experts they told us that the us had no right killing a diplomat basically on foreign soil. u.s. administration's policy is not based on fact it's based on lies and misstatements
7:06 am
and it's not based on the international rule of law it's based on 2 other things one is the view that the us is an exceptional country that it is it does not have it is above international law doesn't have to pay attention to the rules and it's also based on the false notion that the us is the only superpower and a uni polar world us administration still act as if they are the cops of the world they are the bullies on the block and they can take whatever actions that they feel are appropriate for them irrespective of international law american sesame to a foreign diplomat a foreign military general in foreign territory because it didn't like him to put it very simplistically they didn't like him but was the underlying problem what is to stop america tomorrow from saying well we don't like for example mr putin we

research by the state for gulf affairs has shown that the textbooks from 1st grade through 12th grade all the saudi public schools basically teach demonization of jews christians non wahhabi muslims apostates people who don't. observe the very strict dictates of the wahhabi religion in which is the saudi the main saudi religion that is continued then in some of the official literature that the saudi military forces read there's a lot of reporting about the what you would call a blind spot at specific to the trumpet ministration but if you look back every administration has pretty much approached the saudi regime the same way there was very little pressure on them to change what they do on the ground in terms of basic human rights in terms of the incitement that i mention in their textbooks in their defense establishment which u.s. officials have known about this incitement in the military establishment for years . swiss tennis star roger federer has found himself in the climate change bad books

industries should be publicly shamed public shaming and taking the right people to have stare an opinion the last thing that. stops is being human described but it doesn't get it so you want to see it the way he thinks he's allowed to it's a free will say mean and activism don't. well together yes but it can be a discussion that's hard to say well maybe we should celebrities should be a bit more careful in picking this ponces ecological issues should people people's attention but not by publicly shaming an individual however it seems neither gratitude nor her fellow activists have any intention of scaling some of that shaming down yeah why do it if it works so well so what can you be shamed for nowadays stay away from anything that has to do with fossil fuels even if you're choosing a bank shame on you if you fly never heard that was a sin well read has been peddling the flight shame movement online for

for what they do for a living just a short while ago we had at least here in germany eco shaming against people with s.u.v.s and off and on we have it for like people that are taking trips in aircraft seems to be a moving target it seems to go from plastic bags to beef to. the trees to coal mining gets the people are so frustrated they feel they have to do something even if it's almost irrelevant like in the case of siemens right now who's accused of making railway signalling equipment which is being used by the mining company i mean that's a pretty. big stretch to go from zeman signalling equipment to say that has something to do with the climate problem and the forest fires a growing army of activists would say the whole of mankind has no other choice but to use some of gratis shaming skills if it once

a future that there are still probably many of those who wouldn't mind a little more green tolerance from master to burke and co. live from russia this is the hi there thanks to time today coming up to stick around health workers in france throwing down the gauntlet as they demand more funding so i do have more than used to when we come back. as we ponder the future and look into 2021 fascinating stories our way you know i've often said on this show that you can't have capitalism without capital capital without positive interest rates encouraging people to say and this next story this
7:17 am
next whole show this next entire segment is going to be dedicated to this very notion. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president and she. want. to go on to be pro-choice this is what was before 3 of them or can't be good. interested always in the water. there should. be. i gave israel says it's not going to have criticism leveled at ukraine over the
7:18 am
so-called glorification of nationalists it comes off the israeli foreign ministry said it was the moral duty of the world to condemn anti semitism fall asleep across this in israel for. this long run the story goes on for decades as they back up to speed it television not bucking that was to get this criticism in the 1st place that. what we're hearing from israel is a message to ukraine that it will not have the debate that's taking place in kiev over the glorification of individuals during the 2nd world war now these raids are concerned that some of those individuals who are being glorified by. the ukrainian government are people who were responsible for the mess murder of jews during the holocaust people who murdered jews and poms at the same time people who collaborated with the nazis and also anti semitic ideologists of the radical ukrainian national movement the ukrainian government has responded by saying that this is an internal matter that deals with ukrainian politics and that any kind of
7:19 am
criticisms at all coming from israel obvious tension be counterproductive but the israeli foreign ministry has said as you correctly pointed out that anything that belittles the memory of the holocaust in which 6000000 jews died is something that israel and its allies around the world have both a responsibility and a moral obligation to speak out about. preserving the memory of the holocaust the battle against anti-semitism including the group for creation of anti semites and murders of jews are not an internal matter of any country. now the israeli and polish ambassadors made public letters that they blow to the ukrainian government criticizing those individuals that it was glorifying in response the ukrainian ambassador to israel said that the revival and preservation of the ukrainian national memory was one of the priorities of this government and that it was really up to experts and historians to have the final say in this whole debate central to
7:20 am
the whole conversation is the figure. now many in ukraine still glorify him in regard him as a national hero but he was in actual fact the leader of the radical ukrainian national movement and he was accused and found guilty of the mess muito of jews next week the ukrainian president vladimir who happens to be jewish himself will be here in israel he will be participating in a holocaust commemoration ceremony and no doubt this issue will again be addressed . you know. she will go to say the polish leader from now from tel aviv thank you. possibly in france there are more than a 1000 health workers are threatening to quit unless the government makes concessions doctors are holding media conferences across the country tuesday to express their anger including in paris we heard from one french doctor about the challenges they say they're facing the. hospitals have been on strike for several
7:21 am
months hospitals and emergency services unions have been sounding the alarm but politically nothing has been done that's the problem from the point of view of medical ethics doctors must treat patients we don't have the necessary resources we've been killing our health care system for the past 20 or 30 years we have completely changed our control system at the moment all decisions are taken not by medics but by administrative staff and managers and that has to change i came here from senegal radiate humanitarian work so i can tell you that in terms of health care france is becoming like a developing country among the demands being made or increased wages and hospital funding calls to reform the health system come as part of the wider workers' strike the caused chaos nationwide at the end of 2019 and $1.00 of the crimes planned pension reform aim is to merge the current complex system into a unified points based system it would also remove bonuses were a wide range of jobs to the french pm however has promised to drop the proposal to

7:23 am
a very happy man next. leader of the us democrats really powerful to elect a candidate for this year's presidential elections causing panic in the party's ranks he's a familiar face too but bernie sanders being the front runner in the state of iowa as other candidates worried over whether or not he'd actually be able to cut it in the race for the white house. he still needs to be mindful of some point he might need to rally millions of people to support someone else that's not easy you can't just flip a switch it's a process your supporters have to believe you're being genuine in your endorsement and you have to convince them bernie sanders is the democratic party's version of donald trump thank god we're smart enough to stop him we'd all be better served if you focused his disgruntled energy on donald trump i was disappointed to hear the bernie sending his volunteers out to trash me i hope bernie reconsider and turned his campaign in a different direction well that was sound his biggest challenge are currently
7:24 am
restitution senator elizabeth warren who us we heard there's been accusing him of some dirty tactics to undermine her chances she referred to the sound as campaign reportedly using a script that would suggest the warren only appeal to the country's most affluent voters and that's a tactic that's angered people online so she don't controversy elizabeth warren claims her campaign is being smeared by standers volunteers noting that her base are generally more affluent and educated than of vermont senators poor lis she's desperate who knows would follow outreach tomorrow warren is desired it's so not surprise she decided to bash sanders and go for this kind of tactics despicable bernie sanders responded saying that he never personally said anything negative against elizabeth warren we spoke to a lawyer and former candidate for new york city council money to last so who believes that recruits like unifying message. great now it's war in the
7:25 am
sense it's democrats and aggressive democrats every other democrat running for the presidency is trying to gain some kind of a band. and also you know they're really trying to. you know you know get the spotlight get their message across probably. that regret and then they're going to start. since we really have to for. your kind of where i hear. all these candidates. are out in so many areas i think that's a little bit less of. an effort grafter and intense i think a lot. of things look so far this tuesday afternoon so much more last saw you talk to me they were calling for me kevin i would think so watching out internationally coming up to 26 minutes past 3 o'clock in the off of the moscow time right now here
7:26 am
recharged and raring to go the mag's colleagues are insane with a brand new cars report after this break. join me every 1st on the alec simon show and i'll be speaking to us of the world of politics sports business i'm show business i'll see you the. description sound appetising even for the owners so how to choose the pet food industry is telling us what to feed our pets really more based on what they want to sell us than was necessarily good for the pet turns out may not be missed. people
7:27 am
believe we have animals that have you know diabetes in arthritis and they have auto immune disorders they've got allergies we are actually creating these problems is a huge epidemic of problems in all of them i believe can be linked to fairy simple problem of diet and some dog orders so heartbreaking stories about their pets last treats the larger corporations are not very interested in proving or disproving the value of their food because they're already making a $1000000000.00 on it and there's no reason to do that research. this is the kaiser report as we ponder the future and look into 2020 what fascinating stories will come our way you know i've often said on this show that
7:28 am
you can't have capitalism without capital of course you can't i've kept it all without positive interest rates encouraging people to save and this next story this next whole show this next entire segment is going to be dedicated to this very notion and i present to you stacy you know that shape there used to be use in ancient greece for democratic purposes i think they would flip it around and if you your name is on it you've got to be on the jury the same with the magic 8 ball sort of concept that's sort of the shape of the do like a digital version of shakespeare oh york i knew him well this is i want us close and we're going to cover this capitalism without capital because in fact it is very undemocratic it's the opposite of that and it's absence of justice in it and because of that because of this propping up of an unjust system we have zombie economy and this is john authors agreeing with what you max kaiser has said
7:29 am
many times on the show over the past 10 years especially capitalist without capital are ruling capitalism what does it mean that some of the decade's big market winners are companies with no real net worth so the blue line at the top of this chart here is the outperformance of companies in the s. and p. 500 that actually have negative book value there's something like 40 percent of the s. and p. $500.00 have negative book value if you sold off all their assets it wouldn't mean pay off all their debts i mean this is a fascinating trend the only way they are so. staying is cash infusions or cash transfusions into the dead corpse of a zombie corporation and because they have a lobbying strength and because they control interest rates to 0 or under 0 negative rates they're able to maintain a huge percentage of the s. and p.
7:30 am
$500.00 crowding out viable businesses this is a classic mis allocation that you would find if you were to study let's say the austrian school of economics would predict this type of misallocation of capital when you don't give money any value the u.s. dollar has a negative value therefore it has worth less than 0 and it's resulted in this this fascinating marketplace where the biggest companies in the market are actually have no book value or tangible net sellable value at all well he's presented 3 hours for what this can mean and 1st before he goes into those 3 options he uses a phrase that michael pentode used in the last interview we did here in kaiser port he says the fact that 40 percent of public stocks in the u.s. have negative tangible value versus 15 percent 2 decades ago he says this seems not capitalist without capital or ruling capitalism it also sounds very scary the u.s.
7:31 am
stock market has pleasant.
