[000:00:00;00] with awe without headlines one or 2 months ago slams washington for alleging russia is preparing a false flag operation to justify it. suppose it ukraine invasion plans in the program. august sized up the chances of a full blown military conflict. nissan stocum and was always going to waste attention. we have here, you credit the plans of the missiles, 5 minutes from moscow. the question is, how do you, how do you deal with a bully, a massive chemical fi and for say, new jersey is sending large plumes and potentially dangerous smoke into the air. and it could be heading now in the direction of nearby and new york city for the program,
11:01 am
the leader of the indigenous shoshone nation tells us he about the devastating impact of nuclear bomb tests on land belonging to native americans even alleged, the aim was to eliminate his people and these things were conducted without our knowledge and under a culture of secrecy, of the united states. and there in is the intent to commit genocide. ah, it is saturday night here at moscow just off at 7 pm. of course, this is all t international of everyone. welcome to you. so moscow has slammed us allegations, but it rushes, preparing a false flag operation in ukraine. american media and officials claim moscow has pre positioned a group of sapa toes who will create a pretext for invasion. aaliyah, my colleagues niel hoppey and nicky air, and discussed what the russian embassy in america has branded as washington's old
11:02 am
tricks. such rhetoric confirms there is an ongoing information campaign being waged against russia. we see the same scenario being repeated again and again. first, some sensational story is dropped and makes the headlines and then it becomes a key talking point. such both claims, say coming from the us there, and the only intelligence on offer are these elusive source is the allegations we're fetch reported by cnn and swiftly echoed by ukrainian and u. s. officials. we have information that indicates rush has already pre positioned a group of operatives to conduct a false flag operation in eastern ukraine. the operatives are trained and urban warfare and in using explosives to carry out acts of sabotage against russia's own proxy forces. and the russian military plans to begin these activities several weeks before military invasion, which could begin between mid january and mid february. so not the time frame mentioned that between mid january and mid february, the claims are the president. putin's window for invasion is dictated by temperatures. basically he needs
11:03 am
a layer of ice on the ground so that he's heavy hardware like tanks can roll across the border right now is too mild for an invasion by march. it would be too muddy. so apparently president biden as allegedly hide meteorologists to, you know, give them a full cost basically about when this invasion might take place. now, how seriously people are a taken these claims week, which i don't know, but the old familiar headlines, russia plans and invasion of ukraine. in fact, russia planning and invasion of anywhere has become so common, especially over the past year in s. springs 2021. we saw the headline screaming putin threatens war again, that softer that they started, military drills on the boards. they were more warnings in december with both the west and ukraine, so certain that the invasion would take place in december. and yet here we are still no invasion, so we're still coming from both sides. of course, you know, it's like any story that we have a cover here in the news. you can look at it from, from both perspectives and one can look address it. one could look sir, difference,
11:04 am
which is what russia says it is, you know what trips are on our territory from the outside though. the accusation is this is basically a massing of troops ready for him. an invasion. how was moscow defended its position on those? how's it tried to kind of calm what seemed to be growing concerns from, from the wider community? moscow has it repeatedly talked about, hit its red lines. those being the further eastward expansion of nato l. the deployment of nato bay says right at the border with russia, we've just concluded that week long. it talks that diplomacy talks between nato and russia. no progress has been made nay. so is unwilling to compromise. it's that it won't provide any assurances to russia on any of these points and even taunting rusher as well in a way by saying, well, ukraine is going to join nato. it's a done deal. it's just a matter of when a reason reports not bring, it ain't bringing any sense of security or piece to russia off the
11:05 am
a yahoo investigation found that the cia is secretly training, ukrainian, special locked on american soil and has been doing so since 2015 the program has involve very specific training on skills that would enhance the ukrainians ability to push back against the russians. said the former senior intelligence official, the u. s. bay cia program has included training and firearms camouflaged techniques . la navigation tactics like cover and move intelligence and other areas are washington has reported acclaimed. it's solely aimed at defense. they've given the nature of the training and the plenty of questions arising, which we have already addressed to the u. s. or thirty's, ourselves all in over the russian position on all the developments the russian foreign minister. like i love, robbie held his annual press conference yesterday and in answering all the questions there are really including on the western phase of an invasion goods. just mcguffey news. now as soon as our western colleagues guess by reading tea leaves, they immediately grab the sanctions,
11:06 am
baton. we are for everything being decided on the basis of mutual respect and the balance of interests. the position of russia presented to nato is based precisely on the balance of interests and is aimed at the security of europe as a whole, including russia, as well. nater wants to create military footholds around the russian federation to dominate europe. russia has never and nowhere threatened the ukrainian people and kia, makes direct threats to us. so we could go as nato and russian delegates prepared to embark on the days of talks. expectations were already low for a positive outcome. now we can see a week's worth of diplomacy is clearly failed with the situation now feeling so much more tense than it was before. earlier we had a panel of guest to go well, had a pretty heated debate, i should say. oh, over these current tensions are basically asking the question, do these tensions have the potential to escalate into that of a full scale war? whatever the rights and wrongs of the situation but damaged europeans curacy?
11:07 am
not me. the risk of war, which itself is huge, but also the capability of these states to cooperate, to tackle the existential risks, but faced the world. how can people seriously negotiate last year around climate change when they're about to go to war against each other? we should also remember something else. georgia did launch a war with russia, you know, and it was backed up by america, and britain essentially didn't know to intervene. and we have seen in recent weeks, in the black sea, american, british and french warships involve the naval movers and going both to ukraine and to georgia. that would seem to me quite provocative in the current situation of american and british american ships entering as well. russia, now russia waters, that is a major publication. well, if you think about the iraq war and the excuse, iraq will be in the southern saying that missiles potentially 45 minutes from
11:08 am
london. we have here in creating the plan to be miss out 5 minutes from moscow, 7 minutes from russian strategic nuclear defense is in effect. russia will have a knife to throw and not enough time to recover if it allows these in russia. we'll have to stop those missiles coming in. this is the cuban missile crisis part to it could end differently from that one. if we don't look at this very carefully, the other of this is the idea that you cry. if they try to wanted to be part of nato actually became appalled later because that was in effect and you crying and the ability to launch an international war on behalf of an interest and ok. kevin petitions are completely irresponsible on this question. so that would be another, might move in this strategy coming from the jo biden's administration. i think if there's anything positive that has come out of this crisis, it is that the west will recognize that it can't get away scott free by bring you
11:09 am
crying in tonight. it would be awfully hard for them to say so, and so comment was always going to weeks to tensions one sure natal course is in the baltic states once you update. of course, it's important to check that out. elsewhere the positive in georgia in the black sea. once you have that revised russian feels, as i say, you don't ban of why do a piece in to understand what those fears given russian's most recent history. given what happened in the 2nd world war, i was going to say, it's clear that there is a process of regime change across the world. wherever there is governments, we don't fit with the neo liberal, liberal order, which is controlled essentially by the united states. the gas cetera, etc, etc. who will always bring down any government or trying to bring any government which doesn't correspond to those interests or don't disagree with chris is saying . but i also think, but we need to feel about just sliding into just
11:10 am
a confrontational approach towards these sorts of interests and, and, and development. because because they, because they are incredibly powerful. and the big question, the all of us, whether we off commentators in the west or the russian government or any for now is how do you, how do you deal with a bully? and the way of dealing with a bully is not just to face up to them and, and then get smashed in. you, you have to deal with it very cleverly and you have to try and build relationships and positive connection. i'm the way in which managed to do that in the past with england and some other european government who's limited success has been to be valuable. and important thing that is viable, important for the future of the planet, is that russia is included in a new security architecture. you can't have a new security. so even an old one with russia labeled as the enemy, with the ukraine matching office,
11:11 am
is supposed to russian border as it can without any commentary from the western media and native politicians referring to russia as the enemies. you cannot have stability the russia of course, to seize itself as the victim aware this is heading. it has to be included in security architecture, otherwise there's no security. but anybody. meanwhile, the who foreign affairs chief, joseph burrell, has said the fate of a key russian gas pipeline to europe could depend on what happens with crane. but more of that story just a bit later in this program. but for now, a massive fire has erupt at a chemical plot in passaic, new jersey, misleading to warnings about air quality in the region. as we understand, at least one firefighter has been injured and the authorities say they have managed to contain the fire off the battling the flames. throughout the night. locals were told to stay away from the area, stay indoors, windows closed, on clear what caused the fire. at this point, the large quantities of chlorine pallets a store the site,
11:12 am
hence the all the concern over the toxic smoke. hello, this is one of the videos of the fi that was posted on line up to say because a city of around 70000 people and it's about 12 miles outside of new york. and there the city is authorities of war and people that might seal smell the smoke. in a short time ago, i spoke to sustainability and green technology expert, sharon george, who believes the bigger picture of the potential fall out as yet to be assess. i think everybody is right now relieved that they said back under control. if i can recall, store had been bridge that would be looking at the chemicals that we do most concerned about the cooling and match. and that will then change the nature of that fire and the smoke and the pollution that runs from that side to the problem. the fire like that is not just the side too. so you've got the same themes thrown up into the and throwing up and they're actually being disbursed. and that's where you have
11:13 am
a problem. so this is why you know and you know, any pollution, any chemical, especially where you have population density is like that will be a concern and you know, they'll be doing with that finding out can and quantifying exactly what, what that risk is for years the u. s conducted nuclear test on land that was populated by native american indians. author caught up with the current head of the western shoshone tribe. he told us, one of the many consequences was the impact on people's health. the most bombed nation on us, the label claimed by the shoshone native american tribe, as a sacred lamb, turned into a u. s. nuclear weapons testing site. and these things were conducted without our knowledge, and under a culture of secrecy, of the united states. and there in is the intent to commit genocide because these things were developed without our consent. the weapons are tested upon us and there
11:14 am
are test series with specific goals to expose humans to radiation. and we are the victims of that. it all started with the 1863 treaty a ruby valley, when the western shoshone handed certain rights to the u. s, but did not see the land. these and friendships shall be hereafter established and maintained between the western bands of the shoshone nation and the people and governments of the united states. and the said band stipulates and the greed that hostilities and all depredations shall cease from 1951 to 1990 to the u. s. conducted 928. tests that 828 underground nuclear tests and 100 atmospheric. this resulted in full ounce of around 620 killer tons. the comparison hiroshi mom only had 15 killer tons in 1945. all that had devastating effects
11:15 am
on tribal residents. we began to investigate health consequences from exposure to radiation to try to understand what had happened to us. we had a significantly higher exposure to the radiation that led to those health consequences such as cancer's leukemias, auto immune deficiencies. and what we began to understand is that there is a wide variety of illnesses, really strange illness is known to be plausible from exposure to radiation, but we weren't getting any help. we were not getting any support. he says the showed he never agreed to nuclear weapon testing, but finding justice is a tough road. sits the show any people are on their road. so we really need to continue to investigate and understand this, but we're not getting any help from the united states. they're not investigating this because they're the perpetrators of. busy these of acts which are destroying the shoshone people, disgustingly shameful. that us politicians,
11:16 am
the president and the courts. they don't talk about these issues. what we began to understand is that we're experiencing a after wave of assault. i feel that this is what nazis did in world war 2 of the i nuclear tests, just one of a number of hardships the western shoshone people had to endure. you can hear about the others. if you watch our interview with a leader in full is waiting for your right now at auto dot com for now, the fate of a key russian gas pipeline in europe is still hanging in the balance despite construction of north stream to being completed last year. it's still not being given the final go ahead by the e. u and the blocks foreign affairs chief, joseph burrell, says that could depend on moscow, deescalate intentions on ukraine's border. for me should have been easy to since cannot be that someone lives in the infrastructure. according with, with rules, we have
11:17 am
a free market economy and certainly the funding for us to have to we'd also depend on the development of the events and ukraine and the attitude to russia. you cannot imagine that we are thinking one side on imposing sanctions, just in case and on the infrastructure. meanwhile, in the u. s. republican senator ted cruz made his own bid to stop the pipeline. this week. he put forward a bill to sanction businesses involved in the project. if russia invades ukraine. however, the senate voted against the move on thursday, or the democrats have not put forward their own alternative, which would target key russian officials instead. meanwhile, skyrocketing energy prices continue to be a major concern in europe. on wednesday, the swedish government said it would allocate almost $700000000.00 in order to help citizens. those it hardest by searching prices could get up to 220 dollars each
11:18 am
month to help out through the winter. electricity costs in the country, believe it or not, are up more than 250 percent compared to last year. and when it comes to the fate of north stream to we spoke to economist, i kept, everybody knows that the pipeline will be used because it's not only useful, it's essential for germany's and europe's energy supply. these are all games in before that the main partnerships are negotiation partners which adjust the us and russia and all the others are negligible in this matter are trying to get a big deal out of the big business ruling the day. and they don't care at all on the, on the necessary piece of the german population of the russian public of the you are asian population. they don't care at all. they want to make big money and they
11:19 am
don't even what risk a war the scanned old myers u. k. government has now offending off fresh corruption claims off the countries high court rule that a so called a v i. p lane for awarding contracts for p. p was unlawful ministers gave to companies an unfair advantage during the 1st wave of cove it, the claimant have established that the operation of the high priority lane was in breach of the obligation of equal treatment. the illegality is marked by this judgment in a rush to supply the and a chest that the government for 32000000000 p. p items costing over 18000000 pounds . in normal times transparency rules are in place, the state contracts to ensure fair competition. but in the heat of a natural emergency, these rules are cast aside. instead, the i p lanes are reserved for referrals from m. p. 's ministers in senior officials and billions of taxpayer cache signed over. well,
11:20 am
danny street is considering an appeal against the ruling that some of these behind closed doors dealings were illegal. o contracts underwent sufficient financial and technical due diligence and the court found that we did not rely on the referral to the high priority lane when awarding contracts. this isn't the 1st time the courts have ruled against the government over p p contracts. but number 10 has been consistent, that it hasn't acted inappropriately. can the prime ester give a cost on assurance that from now on from now on, all government contracts will be subject to proper process with full transparency and accountability. absolutely, it's a huge one. he's a p p, i reject the idea that somehow the government acted in a way that was wrong. we wanted to get the 32000000000 pieces of p, p in the front line because what was important is to save lives. i make no
11:21 am
apologies that the government did everything in its power to ensure the n h s. and frontline workers did not run out of p p, even though the judge ruled mostly off was in question, were likely to win contracts anyway. if you went through the high priority lane, you had a one in 10 chance of being successful. those outside of that in a circle had way less than a 100 chance. according to the national audit office, 50 firms benefited 1800 tory links, which the opposition, se screams cronyism while our hard working any just staff, we're going without p. p. tory politicians, saw an opportunity to line their cronies pockets. a judge has now ruled that v. i p lane unlawful, but that may be just the tip of the iceberg. not only were some companies given an honest air advantage, the prices were high up in some cases by 200 percent. when the equipment arrived from of it failed to meet basic medical standards. so did the government, teresa,
11:22 am
public health crisis as an opportunity to impose the pockets of pal at the public expense crated. and i mean it's cause you have to deal with things quickly. so there's no reason why having to v i p lane. actually many things could be dealt with more quickly. it just meant that certain people got preferential treatment. i think that shows regard to use of taxpayer money and disregard to the safety of front line health and cast off at the beginning of the pandemic demand for p. p. far route strip supply to keep up. normal procurement rules were relaxed. but all this feeds into the idea that if you have the prime minister number and your phone numbers and your bank account will grow and as free lateral flow tax to be potentially phased out in public health, simply becoming a commodity. so i just remember here on our team to national equate, look at some other headlines now,
11:23 am
making news all around the world. this our europe is building grip by waves of anti cobit rallied in paris. the yellow vest movement is holding a new round of protests against the vaccination pass and other measures taken by the french government. organizes say the demos are also against that of rising unemployment along with social and economic injustice. meanwhile, in the german city of humbug, the supposed to be a counter demonstration raging against an expected rally. again, cobra restrictions that despite a caught up holding a ban on the process. if you buy authorities earlier this month, germany introduced stricter measures for all those involved and the cobra crisis, contin. ah, well, more russian peacekeepers over time home after completing their mission and conduct on this defense ministry video shows the play in the brought them back. 17 other flights also less context on, on saturday,

11:25 am
nami, a lot of up to 3 meters has been easy for japan, or the evacuation of coastal areas is right now underway. and the story will continue with my colleague unit o'neill, when he arrives at his desk in half an hour's time, taking you deep into saturday night here at moscow. this is odd, he international. thank you with now we have easy grids. i just heard that it was a healthy alternative to cigarettes, and do we trust tobacco companies with their message that these new products are actually going to reduce these cigarettes or making the tobacco at them to their workforce? well, the vendor makes no sense. no, board is a piece and
11:26 am
you as a merge, we don't have with the we don't have a vaccine. the whole world leads to take action and be ready. people are just, you know, common crisis with we can do better, we should be better. everyone is contributing each in their own way, but we also know that this crisis will not go on forever. the challenge is great. the response has been massive. so many good people are helping us. it makes us feel very proud that we're in it together with ah, i max kaiser,
11:27 am
this is the kaiser report. it really is happening here in l. zante all salvatore. soon to be known globally as the home of bitcoin city and her witness saying the demise of gold as a monetary di, monetization takes place. stacy? yes. max we are in el dante, in the state of la liber todd, in el salvador. we are going to be here for the next few months, is a super hot. we're going to get a new look which is for the super hot weather. i speaking of super hi, i'm reading this book right here. canis can is naji, but, but kelly and i'm reading it in the spanish language. so i am learning this learning spanish and you know, since we've been here, we've been in the news every day on the local national news and stuff like that. and i want to turn attention to
11:28 am
a concept called the economic hit men. because lo and behold, the, the people who bitcoin were called charged with being economic hit man in the headlines here. and the headline reads julia. evelyn martinez opposes the economic development of the country and describes bitcoin errors, max kaiser and stacy herbert to seek to invest in the country as economic hitman. so max, you know, a few months ago they passed the lay bitcoin, the bitcoin law. and this is attracted big pointers from around the world who are in this is like renaissance 2 point. oh, right. we're seeing the best and the brightest we're seeing were engineers were seeing builders were seeing artists were seeing all sorts of people interested in moving to l. of the doors coming here. well, those from the old system, the legacy system from the fia system are not happy with that. yeah, it's the opposite of an economic it man, you know, you can, i'm a kid man would load a country up with debt. for
11:29 am
a spread coin is equity. it's the opposite of debt. this is an equity for debt swap . and of those who are critical of big coin, siding the economic good man, as described by john perkins in his famous book, confessions of an economic good man are i would say being intellectually dishonest and or lazy. so you mentioned that you can make hit man by john perkins. he has been on this program. he's a friend of the show. he's a friend of ours. so i did that once. we were called economic hitman. i was just totally shocked because of course it's not even possible with bitcoin, right? you can load a nation up with bit camine and then you know, take their assets as a swab. that doesn't happen as you mentioned as equity. so i want to read you a,
11:30 am
a comment in made in 2015 from john perkins. what he describes economic hit men as max. he says basically, what economic hit men are trained to do is to build up the american empire to create situations where as many resources as possible flow into this country. meaning the united states to our corporations, meaning like united fruit company and our government. and in fact, we've been very successful. so think of what you've seen out of el salvador for the past 100 years max. you've seen the resources of this country, coffee, cocoa, all sorts of stuff. agricultural products, leave this country, go to america, and the capital leave this country. and importantly, human capital people, the individuals, the 3000000 salvadorans who left over the past 40 years from this nation to the
