tv The Big Picture RT July 9, 2021 11:00pm-11:31pm EDT
that strategy will be successful, very critical of time. time to sit down and talk the sort of celebrate we can gain the growth i'm going to include in another border crossing that says the us president confirmed troops will be out of the country by the end of next month. you know, mission accomplished. right? and in response really that can people alone decide future and how they want to run their country was as refugees continue to be the country for a new life in europe, the brutal rape murder, a 13 year old girl in austria at the hands about them. margaret, once again, the issue of immigration back in the spotlight and nation government of the us and us to send troops to help protect the country. the key infrastructure comes off of your destination of the haitian president,
which has left the country in time. one big picture with the big picture coming up with just a moment of time with us with the news with rick sanchez. we're back in one hour time with the latest and again that on this week show your tv is telling you to watch something else. why our legacy media ushering us elsewhere. ben swan is on track. but 1st we'll have the pond, the asked george galloway, how the u. s. a new look plays over there. i'm hollan cook back here in washington post pandemic. at least we hope so. this is the big picture on our t america. oh i
what can change in a year? i see the disinfectant, where it knocked it out in a minute. one minutes and is there a way we can do something like that? by injection inside or, or almost a cleaning because you see it gets in the lungs and it does a tremendous number. it will also be interesting to check that so that you can have to use medical doctors. but it sounds, it sounds interesting to me. i'm pleased to announce that today we will have reached the mark of 300000000 shots in arms and just 150 days. let me say that again. 300000000 shots in arms and under 150 days. as an important milestone destin happened on its own or by chance took the ingenuity of american scientists, the full capacity of american companies and the whole of government response across federal. ready state, tribal and local governments. together we build an unparalleled vaccination program
and manage one of the biggest, the most complicated logistical challenges in american history. after 4 years of a ship from the lip president who irked our allies and cozy up the dictators, a chief executive, well known to world leaders after his 8 years as deep and long time member of the senate foreign relations committee. how does the usa look to the rest of the world? now, let's ask former u. k. member of parliament, george galloway. he's there and i'm here. so there may be a slight delay, but george, welcome. and i've got to ask you the most obvious question to people. there was donald trump, the ugliest american quite possibly. you've had the phrase from the sublime to the ridiculous. most people here, i think you've gone from the. busy ridiculous to the supine,
of course donald trump was a bul in a china shop, quite literally in the china shop. he looked like a might take us over the brink into war with china. but president, by done, i don't want anyone's feelings is not anybody's idea of on the button politician. and unfortunately he's got his finger on the nuclear. but when he was here the other day, if not for his wife turning round and pointing, i'm in the right direction. i swear he might well have walked off the end of the p r into the waves, and we'd be having a quite different conversation now. as we put it here in scotland, you wouldn't send them out to buy a loaf, and you wouldn't expect them to get home safely. george forest johnson got along better with trump than most other allies, and the washington post surmised that even before biden was elected,
there were worries that the united kingdom's brash pro breakfast leader might find little common ground with a pragmatic multilateral s. u. s. leader who emphasized as many in the british media noted his irish catholic roots. a george, how did you expect biden and bo joe to get along? well, speaking someone with irish catholic roots myself, i've got to tell you the perception here on the record so far is joe biden is an anti british resident, not just because his breed assess, are gone along quite well with borders. johnson, but because of unlike barack obama, also because of his family relationship all be 3 centuries ago in biden's case, to the british empire. neither of them likes britain very much. both of them preferred europe. both of them intervened and bricks affairs on the european side
against britain, and no des, expecting much from biden presidency here in britain. the bo jewel administration, will do its best to keep what they call the special relationship. but to anyone who's paying attention, there's not much special about the relationship between britain and the us. nowadays. we have just learned that in this past month of june 99.2 percent of the coven deaths in the usa were from people who were not vaccinated. and that the delta variant is now dominant here. what was the perception there over the last 16 months of how the usa was responding to this pandemic? well,
i think it was quite similar to our own government. they won just 2 leaders with the blond hair, one of them who could speak latin better than the other, who could speak english. but the india say all the handling of the corona virus on both sides of the atlantic is really quite striking as is, and this is a potter dog. so i can't explain the success of both countries in the vaccination rollout on these specially. but the united states coming up behind have both done well in the vaccination, having done catastrophic lay badly in handling the virus in the 1st place. and so we're both quite high, near the top of the league, you'd want to be bottom of, of failure in the 1st thought and success. in the 2nd part, it's a paradox. i can't explain it, but at least you did not have your national leader telling people that it would
disappear one day like a miracle. and we in the usa, represent 4 percent of the world's population, and 19 percent of the covert depth. i got the impression all along that britons were taking this more seriously than the whiners here who got cabin fever and memorized netflix and just wanted it over that you all were taking it more seriously. there weren't you well, the people may be, but the government not. we are locked down far too late. we have the benefit that saved us many times of being on the island. we could have closed down the island to foreign travel. we could have put our defenses up, but we were months late doing that. we were also month early in lifting the, the locked down precautions that we eventually did take. we even paid out billions
in taxpayer dollars to encourage people to go out to eat, eat out to help out, was the rubric. and of course, predictably that led to another spike in infections when we did not yet have the vaccination to roll out. we have ruled out, well, i don't want to give any other impression. we use the army. i myself bought the job from the british army, and it has protected now. almost everyone about 97 percent of the people of britain. now have coven to antibodies? by one means or another other injection or infection. so we are, of course, suffering still huge numbers of infections, but they're not hospitalized in people. and above all are not killing people in the
way that they. ready were i have a chest read that the u. k. infection is that at the highest rate since last february, owing to this variant, dia think that compliance can come back if you have a lockdown again, or do you have the same kind of fatigue protest there that we have here? i've got to tell you they'll never be another locked down like the ones that we've been through when you see the explosion, the card of english people celebrating after the football semi final victory this week. and i hope you will see it again on sunday evening when england become european champions. you will see that we are tired of all that. we won't go back into that as long as whatever the rate of infection, as long as hospitalizations, don't spike dangerously and deaths don't spike dangerously. then we'll never go
back into that. good night. the british people are tired of all just like i assume the people in the united states are well, good luck in the big game. i personally can't wait to get back to baseball, former u. k. parliament member george galloway. thank you for stepping into the big picture, who was the best president in us history? the top 5, according to c. span's presidential historians survey 2021. our number 5, the 5 star general, who warned us about the military industrial complex dwight eisenhower, a republican who expanded social security, sent army troops to enforce school integration and little rock and built the interstate highway system. number 4, theodore roosevelt, and other republican who became a driving force for anti trust and progressive policies. he established national parks, forests and monuments to preserve the u. s. a natural resources,
and the bed and construction of the panama canal. number 3, his 5th cousin, democrat franklin roosevelt, our longest serving president, f. d. r was elected 4 times his new deal coalition steered us through the great depression and world war 2. he put america a work building. the infrastructure president biden now wants to rebuild. number 2 was our president, number one, george washington. he refused the title of king, but he was undeniably the father of our nation leading patriot forces to victory and the revolutionary war and presiding over the constitutional convention of 1787 and historians, best president ever was abraham lincoln who led us through the civil war and freed the slaves, ronald reagan and barack obama, were also among the top 10. donald trump came in 4th from last lower than any
president in the past 150 years. although he beat 3 democrats, all of whom were on the wrong side of the slavery issue, franklin peers, james buchanan. and andrew johnson, the vice president who was elevated when lincoln was assassinated. and who like trump, was impeached. but mr. trump was outranked by william henry harrison like trump. harrison was a proud man so proud that in the dead of winter he refused to wear an overcoat or hat during his inaugural also refusing a closed carriage. he rode there on horseback, then delivered the longest inaugural address in history. nearly 2 hours he caught pneumonia and died $31.00 days later, a presidency. these historians ranked above trumps. coming up
theaters are open again, but why go there when the movies come to you? and video didn't kill the radio star, but could streaming. this is a big picture on our t america. ah ah. the special episode, summer solutions. today we're talking with john ruby. no dollar collapse dot com stay right. 2021 has been the year of the i word inflation. even the central bank is mentioning inflation. is it transitory? however, as the central bank is arguing,
or are we going to see something worse coming forward in the next year or 2? ah, remember, desperate housewives. sunday nights at 9 is hardly the prime time, but this was an instant hit. the 4th most watched sho in the usa and it's 2004 debut season and a big hit in canada. and the u. k. and australia, a b c. affiliate stations were giddy until that afternoon i sat with the station manager in his office at abc 6, w. d, a y t v. in fargo, north dakota. as he learned watching the news on his own station. the episodes of desperate housewives would be available next morning each week for
a $1.99 on i tunes his own network hadn't even told him they would be end running his station. i phone wasn't introduced until 2007. i pad didn't come along until 2010, but tv networks were already luring eyeballs away from their loyal affiliates by trading us to watch on our desktop computers instead. back to the future, nbc now says watch peacock instead, your favorite food and home remodeling shows. they're full of commercials for you to watch on demand on discovery plus why? let's ask our t boom bus co host bend swan then discovery plus the streaming home of everything you love has planned start at 4 $99.00 a month. 699 for commercial free ben who is leading whom in this shift, the media or the consumer. yeah,
i think it's definitely the consumer. the consumer has proven that they are not interested in appointment television though. i, i have to say holland, you know, desperate housewives. it was appointment television. right. it's so many people so many of us were tuning into watch it every single week. i will include myself in that group. and the reality is this, that appointment television was something that so many people wanted. what's fascinating right now though, is we're actually living in a moment where it's reversed a tiny bit. so disney plus the disney is you know, obviously streaming service is doing something very unique right now. they are back to once a week displaying and premier in episode of their new programming like loki or one division and consumers are having to wait once a week. it's something new in the streaming wars, because remember, netflix is whole case for the consumer was you can binge watch, you can watch everything at once and you don't have to wait. and now as a result of disney plus doing this, netflix is now announcing,
but it too will have certain programming that you can only watch once a week. so maybe feeding back into what the consumer actually once which was for a while we want to binge watch, but maybe now we're liking the anticipation of programming once again. yeah. and then the last 16 months, i think i have memorized netflix. but as for the legacy broadcasters, are the affiliate stations getting screwed by the big corporate networks? who are lowering those affiliates, viewers to their direct streaming channels? oh, absolutely, no question about it. look, i, i spent so much of my career working in local television as a new thinker, right. and as you know, those, those local television stations are dependent upon network programming. that brings the viewers in and they stick around for that late night news. but when you, when you have this, this exodus, if you will, away from broadcast television and into these streaming sites. yeah, absolutely it, it hurts the bottom line. more. anything else for those local stations?
in fact, the one thing right now that they're barely holding onto, as local stations are lives for it's, and even with hulu. now you can get those and other places as well. so it is very difficult for, for local stations to survive that. and we should mention that even as that happens, the reason that the stations have to do it is because again, of what consumers are looking for. consider the fact nbc, you mentioned peacock, peacock is, is a streaming service that had to spend $500000000.00 just to buy back its own hit show the office from netflix in order to bring consumers back. think about this. the office was, was for many years, the number one show on netflix and it's in b c's property. and yet a show that was somewhat popular in its time on television has become absolutely iconic, because of streaming and 9 lives like seinfeld. the crystal ball award for this whole streaming phenomenon has to go to netflix because they did not name it movies
by mail back when it was snail mail. and the d v. d 's we chose from their menu of the african war releases. then nearly a decade ago, came house of cards, season 113 episodes released all at once, and binge watching when digital couple of years later when netflix, c e o read hastings keynote, the consumer electronic show. he wowed us with a preview of the crown. and now netflix touts a new movie every week, original content and amazon prime as keeping pace. and these platforms also offer deep vaults and big screen heads. and now a netflix deal for both with steven spielberg, who's going to produce new stories and whose body of work includes classics like jaws, e t. schindler's list, saving private ryan ban. we know amazon is flush with cash. can netflix afford to stay in this arms race?
there try and it's it's pretty incredible when you consider how long has taken netflix to get the kind of of traction that it has versus how quickly disney plus, i know i've mentioned them before, but how quickly disney plus was able to to pick, gain ground on them, but that comes with an already having a massive media vault and making good acquisitions. you know, if you consider the fact that netflix has done a pretty smart job of picking up certain programming, you mentioned the house of cards at the time that they bought house of cards, that was the most expensive television show ever to be produced. it was an it was a home run, hit for netflix to do that. picking up certain tv shows like the office and making them iconic when they really weren't beforehand or even shows like amc madman, which, you know, had a somewhat successful run on amc be maybe became vastly more successful when it moved to netflix. so there is a great kind of track record for netflix. the question is, can you survive now that everyone else is pulling their catalogs and libraries and taking them in house? and that's very difficult. and i want to say one other thing before netflix,
who was the swami who thought i'll actually give him credit for this mark cuban. remember his spelled t v dot com was failed for him. he thought of for $4000000000.00, but he 1st saw the future in which everyone would watch television on the internet . so yeah, you're right about the office sometimes just changing the platform of the movie shy shank redemption wasn't a real big hit in theaters, but it became a classic on cable. and the times they are just a change in video, just as deregulated wall street dep hemorrhaging corporate radio owners have dumb down f. m stations to repetitive, commercial cluttered music appliances that are now under a salt from pandora and other streamers. and as it's getting harder to find a local news on am stations that have degenerated into an angry honor. trump rally log comes clubhouse with more than $10000000.00 users and a 1000000000 plus valuation joining the ranks of uber and air b and b as
a unicorn startup. and just as quickly facebook, twitter, and spotify and others are developing their own the clubhouse competitors. thank you, ben swan, if you're looking for a little light reading while you're on vacation, keep looking. if you truly question more, we recommend this sobering analysis in the new great depression, winners and losers and a post pandemic world. new york times best selling author james records warns that the current crisis is not like 2008, or even 1929. the new depression that has emerged from the coven pandemic is the worst economic crisis in u. s. history most fired employees will remain redundant. bankruptcies will be common and banks will buckle under the weight of bad debts. deflation, death and demography will rec, any chance of recovery and social disorder will follow closely on the heels of
market chaos. the happy talk from wall street and the white house is an illusion. the worst is yet to come, but he writes for knowledgeable investors. not all hope is lost. drawing on historical case studies, monetary theory, and behind the scenes access to the halls of power. records recommends how to survive, even prosper during turbulent times to come, don't get me wrong. i love a good novel, but that john grisham thriller i just knocked off at the beach, was lot less scary than this non fiction stuff. number one, best seller and amazon's government management category is nightmare scenario. inside the truck administration's response to the pandemic. that changed history by washington, post journalist yes, mean a booth, a lab and damien, paulette, or a frightening and unsurprising account of what they call the chaos incompetence and
craven politicization. that has led to more than half a 1000000 american deaths and counting one behind the scenes account after another chronicle. how from the initial discovery of this new corona virus president trump refused to take responsibility, disputed the recommendations of his own pandemic workforce. claim that the virus would just disappear. mark to advocates for safe health practices, and encouraged his base, an entire g o. p. to ignore or resend public health safety measures. remember how in the panoramic 1st hit passengers were stranded on a cruise ship that wasn't permitted to dock. the author's report that trump was most angry about this. what the sick passengers meant for him. that doubles my numbers over night. he said, don't we have an island that we own? trump asked the room went silent. where was trump going with this?
he continued. what about guantanamo and everyone froze. and that is the big picture. thanks for watching. we'll be back. same time next week and tune into us live on direct tv channel 3 to one or set the d v r. if you can. we're also on the dish dish to 80, and youtube dot com slash r t. america is our live stream, and all of my shows are on youtube dot com slash the big picture r t. and if you miss us live, you can catch us where you will find all our shows on the portable tv app, portable dot tv, or in the app store or google play. i'm holland cook on twitter at holland cook. where if you follow me, i'll follow you question more. ah,
alas may end appears to be near washington's 20 year halford to nation bill and f denison was always going to end this way a complete and total failure. it is doubtful, the corrupt government in kabul will last long after the american withdrawal of dennis and remains broken and the american people poor and no one is held to account the the welcome back to kaiser report i max kaiser and stacy herbert with another special
episode summer solutions today were talking with john ruby now of dollar collapse dot com. stacy right. 2021 has been the year of the i word inflation. even the central bank is mentioning inflation. is it transitory? however, as the central bank is arguing, or are we going to see something worse coming forward in the next year or 2? yeah, we have inflation all of a sudden after what, 2 decades of 0 inflation and all of a sudden we're at 4 or 56 percent depending on the, the measure use. and the interesting thing about this version of inflation is if there are a lot of cross currents, you know, there are a lot of what they call base effects where we had kind of deflation at the beginning of the panoramic. and so the year over year comparisons are exaggerated by the really low numbers back that and but then we've got spiking. industrial
commodity is in all kinds of weird supply chain things going on that's forcing manufacturers to pay way up for whatever they want. so it's really hard to tell how much of this continues into the future and how much is going to get fixed. for instance, right now, a lot of the, the industrial commodities out there and agriculture commodities are starting to correct like lumber after quadrupling in just a couple of years. and spanking the cost of building a new house is back down by $40.00 or 50 percent. so the question is, does that, you know, is that the new trend will, will commodity prices start to go down and will that filter through to inflation next year? i make it lower than people expect. i have no idea. but that's all you know, in a way irrelevant because the, the macro longer term trends, all point to rising inflation out there in the sense that we're borrowing so much new money that has to be covered by creation of new currency. and that.
