tv Keiser Report RT July 27, 2021 5:30pm-6:00pm EDT
the, the victim, not at the individual level. it's not individual willpower. and if we go on believing that will never change as obesity epidemic, that industry has been influencing very deeply. the medical and scientific establishment, ah, what's driving the mac, it's corporate. me join me on the alex famine show and i'll be speaking to guess in the world, the politics sport, business and show business. i'll see you then in the moon the
hi am i guys are this is the kaiser report. hey, for all of you out there that regret not being around the soviet union at the time with their collapse. you know, a lot of people on astrology about that. a lot of interesting things, matt type was their writing in the journal. anyway, they do have that experience today, right here in the good old usa state. oh, that's actually correct because we just did withdrawal from afghanistan. all empires. that's what they do. they withdraw from afghanistan, where some reason over the past few 100 years, they go to die. but you know, this is something that we've been following as we have the facilities trap, the 4th turning the debt cycle. all these things are turning in such a way that the inevitability of the collapse is certain. and when you look back to the fall of the roman empire, what they did is they had the bread and circuses, right? and the bread and circuses were weaponized, right?
because it was the powerful senators and noble families versus the, the emperor and you know, everybody was jockeying for power and they would weaponized the bread and circuses . so we're going to look at the bread and circuses situation here in the united states at the moment because i realize that you know, dawned on me that we started 1st with a circus clown, essentially as a president with trump. and now we have like a hypnotist that's come in there with these coal black eyes and like robert and he hypnotized the population. and you could see that with the post trump news slump, the post trump new swamp continues online traffic is declined at leading new sites almost every month since january peak from a year ago. latest figures from comscore and i show catastrophe for almost all media outlets. washington post down 30 percent new york times on over 30 percent. we have some down 5060 percent,
and their traffic from the all time peak of trump era and now down. so that was the clown show, the people liked it. now the people, the populations being hypnotized by the coal black guys. yeah, i remember back in the old days in america, there is a tradition of the dime museum. so the dime museum needs to be one in times square, many, many years ago, or who danny went for format. and this was a collection of freight shows. and magicians, and hypnotists. dan, people are going there for their one shiny dime and get quite a pan of play of entertaining spectacles. and so we had the freak show, the trump years in all of its glory, followed by the hypnotist of joe biden, whose kind of involuntarily putting the nation to sleep with black, cold,
dead eyes, and utterances that are filtered through some kind of incomprehension screen. and the media, unfortunately, is not getting them audience that they need to survive. so this is leading to soviet union style collapse because if you take a spectacle out of the u. s, there's nothing left, right? it's like taking the bureaucracy out of the soviet union, wants to be accuracy collapse. the soviet union collapsed with america. that doesn't work to be your accuracy. it works on the spectacle industry. so everything is this, it outrages spectacle. and it's covered by the spectacle news. and so when you remove the spectacle, you essentially are doing a rug pole. there's nothing left there. you know that the curtain falls and it's just an empty theater. and there's nobody in the audience. and so there's no
economy, sadly, you like the soviet union. my, my particular thing, i like to compare it to the roman empire because it does seem like, you know, we have the senate, we have the emperor, we had the army, we had the praetorian guard, we had the bread and circuses. we had a vast expanse, extending all over. they had their roman roads, we have the internet that we extended throughout the world. and last information was allowed to travel through inherent heretical information was allowed to travel down those roads. so when i look at this, i look at the, the fact that, you know, when the empire starts to retreat, when it starts to lose power at the edge, that's when all of the spectacle arrives. the room is of course left. you can go to room today and see all the amazing architecture and buildings and you know, all sorts of stuff that they created there, right? but the us will have, like, you know,
we were the greatest show on earth. it was genuinely the greatest spectrum called the greatest show on earth. but unless you were there, you don't remember it like, you know, if you didn't go to woodstock, you can't really know how amazing it was or how bad it was like you had to been at the show to have seen it and believed it. right. unless you were in america during its 240 year existence, you would have really have no memory on it. right. if you can remember it, then you weren't really there because there's nothing left behind except some landfills filled with some collector. mikey trainers said some for some reason sold for thousands of dollars. you know, we have the spectacle and we have that. the surfaces certainly we even to the point where we elected a cloud president who is a reality tv star. he was like one of the gladiators in the spectacle that we call television, reality television. they even called it in the very comical sort of spectacle manner. but then, of course, the bread we've seen the remarkable stimulus checks,
credit, huey, all sorts of stuff being thrown around, joe biden says, his multi trillion dollar spending plans will reduce inflation in the years ahead. so this is that sort of hypnotism that, that you just keep on looking into my eyes. just keep looking in there. this, this, all the spending will actually reduce inflation. you know? yeah, well wait is expensive and bread is expensive, so it's more, it's actually cotton. you know, is the new bread and circuses. it's actually cotton and circus says, probably microscope and circuses. and the results are catastrophic, of course. and, you know, we're doing roman empire, soviet union empire. remember in the soviet union class you had and whole generation of men essentially die from alcoholism. here you've got a whole generation of americans that are said to die from o beat addiction thanks to the collapse of the american empire,
which could have been avoided. i don't think it can because the entropy always that then whatever the system is, what ever system in history throughout nature, entropy always gets it in the end. so that's the inevitable lety. it has to happen . and these are just the signs that we're looking at, that just like the business cycle, like you, the notion is essential banks believe they convince themselves that they could do something to stop it because who likes the business cycle, who likes to put the neighborhood shop out of business, who likes the destruction of capital like that, but it has to happen because that's the cycle of life. and so let's turn to the cycle of this business, the business cycle applied to the media industry. so we cover the fact that their ratings have collapse because apparently, you know, the audience has been put to sleep instead of they're not tuning in for the clown car, they're not tuning in for the clown show. so what has happened and said what it, what, what like instance, instead of, you know, reporting or doing something else different are changing their business model well,
outrage as a business model, how ben shapiro is using facebook to build an empire. so that is the headline from n p r and here is the response i was looking at this m p r article is hilarious. if sinister, it basically boils down to establishment left wing media outlets being faulty, that their content performs worse and the digital marketplace. and thus wanting big tech to shut down bench shapiro for dot dot dot, beating them. that's what i'm talking about, the internet that that, that, that equivalent of roman roads delivering the barbarians and their messages outside of the elite center, the senators, the emperor, the president, the congress. you know, the fact that they control the message and then suddenly all these people start poking fun, you know, at the edges. and it disintegrates the center collapses,
right? and plus, you know, what i don't understand is how come either m s m b say, or fox news, or c, n. n is not just outright buying bench a barrel. in other words, in the past, when you had a rising force in the media, they would be bought out. and that's why there's only 5 or 6 big media companies in america. they buy out all the competition. that's an all gobbling. so instead of crying about bench repair being that the ratings typically what we would say is that one of the major was simply fine bench a para, remember air america was a left wing alternative media. and i was essentially bought out all the players. my lean m s b thing and, and so, you know, we have that option. we used to why, why is it that the media companies that are already openly oligarchic, are raising money to buy out the competition? in the same way that private equity is buying out all their competition. why the media and not buying out their competition? i don't understand that. you know, that's even not even. that's not even american. i mean, what is that?
that's not even soviet union like, that's not even a roman. like what is that? it is. it's like the greeks. it's like the romans. it's like spanish. it's like the british, it's like what every empire schubert this. they feel they should be obeyed, and that how dare you be a barbarian and have a different message, a different governance system, a different ideas than i do. so you e bay me or year destroyed. they don't like to negotiate. diplomacy goes out the window and they crush the competition and thus invite the population begins to invite in the barbarian. so that's what you end up being a tiring dictator and you get destroyed by the people. but i want to say another thing that they point out in this article, this is what n p r roads. and this guy brad paloma, calls attention to it. quote, saying of these online barbarians, m p r, said they tend to not provide very much context for the information that they are providing. if you stripping off context away, any piece of truth can become
a piece of miss information. right? so the barbarians, the venture barrows of the day today are essentially what public access public media used to be yet. and what n p are used to be part of public access, television and radio and media that was sponsored by the people in democracy. now with amy goodman, you know, they have their annual fund raising drives, that's what publicly funded media means. but now that they've all been co opted by corporations and there are, is now public media any more. you have a good friendship barrow that goes to the readily available public media outlets like youtube and others at this time. and they are providing an alternative that is out grossing the mainstream corporate lead media. and who have their genesis and the public airwaves, without which they were none of them one of existed. so it's come full circle and i
think you're right. it is a matter of hubris. typically people come to believe that the free money that they've been given in the free air time that they've been given through public access to somehow a birthright that they deserve. and their entitled to and they go bonkers. all right, we're going to take a break. and when we come back much, you are coming your way. the me ah, this is your media a reflection of reality? in a world transformed what will make you feel safer?
tyson lation, whole community. you going the right way? where are you being somewhere which direction? what is truth? what is faith in the world corrupted? you need to this end. the so join us in the depths, remained in the shallows. i look forward to talking to you all that technology should work for people. a robot must obey the orders given it by human beings, except when the shorter the conflict with the 1st law show your identification. we should be very careful about artificial intelligence at the point, obviously is to create truck rather than fear i would like to take on various jobs with artificial intelligence,
real summoning the theme in a robot must protect its own existence with exist. the me welcome back to the kaiser report, i max kaiser time, not to return to our conversation with tommy cost. he's over there across good capital. tommy, welcome back. thanks for having been year. i wanted to follow up on something from our previous conversation relating to m to money supply. it's grown massively beyond the g d p growth sense 2008. pero barkley, since the beginning of the pandemic black pounds a year ago. now here's my question. many on the left argue that this is necessary, not only to rescue the system, but to help the poor be response. what is,
why is i think it's i instead of taking is so much on the political side. i'm going to say it's almost there is no way, no way around is the situation that we got into which with the lack of discipline that really started in the seventy's and the break of the gold standard and taken on that or more. dad, i don't think there is really a way around this decides the increase of money money. so why it specially now we're seeing more units of money supply to create roles. and therefore, the issue is some call deflationary, which is the money, the last city decline. i think in know, in any ways this doesn't really matter what the political party really yes, the continuation of those policies is what ends in my view with the lation at some point. and the real question is, when there are some real signs today, they're starting to, to begin here. and you can see also the, the issue with the prevalence in a narrative of inflation. i mean more of the trending especially pop take among the
average. joe, don't think we haven't seen since the 70s in a west and sure some other places in the world. they actually have experienced that . let me jump in here for a 2nd. so what, how does the left explain inflation? what do they think is happening? why do they explain it? well look, i think the way they try to explain it is, is, in a way is, is increasing the wealth of the, the bottom 50 percent are, is i wouldn't say, explain or perhaps justify what they're doing. i think the explanation in a way is that the wealth has been really much more towards the more the richer parts of the society, which is the inequality issue. yeah, but i'm saying that do they understand when you print money, you reduce purchasing power for your money and you're actually causing poverty to the left. understand that when you print money,
they're causing poverty. did they understand that it seemed so simple and you could save that with a lot, a lot of emerging markets that are very even more left in the us. i've been doing that for a real long time, and they know that, but there's, it's so a political to create discipline in the system, increase the ability for the currency and stop issuing that in stop printing money to get either, you know, purchased a financial assets or give it to be depending on what country you're referring to in the u. s. i think i think it's actually less than other places, but it's it bad max. i think i think what we're seeing is, is this, you know, in a way it's inevitable, right? i mean it's, you know, how do you reach the levels that we have a dat, especially the private sector was looking really bad. we just transferred the issues and balances the macro balances in the private sector. we're basically transferring bath from the private to the public sector. and so, but, but that, you know, that still doesn't change the nature of the balances are still there and the need
for further increase of money, the loss of money. so why specially in order to create shorted amount of units of gdp is still here? so it doesn't change the picture that you're referring to, which i think it's very important which is embedded inflationary force that is being in the system where a lot of, you know, the odyssey to present doesn't, doesn't know that. in fact, they don't have been whole financial acids that actually protect them against those, those forces. and that's the sad part about this. and we're actually suffers from those policies is actually that, you know, the more the deport you are from brazil show. yeah. ok. latin america, central america, they've been doing this for decades, doesn't work. and america will look at that as well and say, hey, you know, your country is all messed up. we need to invade your country, you know. but in so why they adopting the venezuelan monetary policy?
why are they mimicking? is it the example of you become what you have, right? america have venezuela. so they're going to become like that as well. i think it's an extreme scenario. it could become an issue. it's not might be the case, i don't think it's going to be that way. and the reason for that is because i bring inflation tends to happen, starts with the instability of the current, which we're seeing in the us. we're seeing all over the world. but that leads to smart money to leaving bath, that particular country. so in other words, you see a large corporation is starting to have capital outflows from that place. we're seeing that today in urgent tina, that's a great example of a place where most of the smart money is out. and so you start seeing a political environment to form that is stronger than any other political leadership. and that is when you start seeing this kind of been this well in style of hyperinflation, i think that's going to happen in a place like urgent. you know, it's already happening, but i think it's going to get us to years if ever seen in venezuela in the west.
you know, we're still have most of the large corporations here, a lot of economies to still do business with the us. if that's going to happen is going to have to happen worldwide, right? because it's a relative game, it in a day, but a mile being and i think there's a little too far for us even go there. i think that's going to take a few steps to get to the high briefly show levels. i like to focus mostly on, you know, inflation going from single single to double digits. and he may go back to high single digits and will stay there for a bit. and i think that that's going to change everything, especially from a capital allocation side of things is. and i don't think most of the investors are a curly position for such an environment like that. ok, so to buttress your argument, you know, you could look at the dollar because a dollars been relatively strong. you could look at gold that's been relatively weak, right. and that's kind of what you're describing is that yeah,
the us dollar is messed up. but relatively speaking, it's the cleanest shirt in the laundry, right? it's the least messed up compared to the rest of the world. i mean, look at, i mean, what's happening in the you, their money supply, their money is being printed at a more accelerated rate than even in the u. s. is already the central banks from your work and your do the deep dive and all the statistics and quantitative analysis and whatnot. what's the e c b at the moment? are they really as messed up as a peer to be a seems like they're the weakest of the major central banks? i would agree, even though i think from a physical side as monetary symbol especially will, it would actually be used to fund fiscal in the way of par giddy those those stimulus and passing those through are a little bit more difficult in other areas. and i think that's why recently not in the last month or so, but in the last year we saw the strength of the year
a relative to the dollar. you know, but i, i don't think that that changes the picture as a whole. i mean, it still have those countries are highly indebted. they have been highly indebted on the only, you know, perhaps the only positive thing that i can think of that may happen with europe in the following years is regarding this remote work that we're seeing currently. we, which may change their economy in a way where we may seem flows of folks actually moving there to work towards that. but that's a long discussion. there's nothing to do with the monetary and fiscal side of things. i believe that that's, you know, you're right, minutes of relative game in most places, not only europe will continue to do exactly what the u. s. is doing. i would point out, especially australia, australia has been doing even more than i even thought they would be doing. the terms with monetary symbol is an expansion of monetary base and dos. those places won't stop anytime soon. my view. and the issue is that we're seeing the same inflationary forces worldwide. you know, as it's not only the west or europe,
it's happening even in asia. tooth in china, especially china, is one of the most leverage economies you can find in the world today. 300 percent of financial assets to g p. s, at a very close capital account in economy. how in the world, the group at that level of leverage, especially from a financial asset perspective relative to g d p. it's kind of astonishing you my view, but going back to your question on your, on, on the, especially europe as a whole on look, i think, especially the u. k. is, is, is doing a few things, especially towards more money. we don't really want is ation of that, i guess more direct monetization of bass than other places. and, and although i think will turn out to be the race to the bottom for fear currencies and the need for alternative of alternative monetary system. and there are plenty out there. you've been talking about big point for a long time. that's one of them. there is gold and there's silver on there's.
there's a lot of bass that they can actually benefits and not jump in less than return to latin america. and you mentioned back coin there, we've got an unbelievable situation and el salvador, they made big coin, legal tender, and immediately property prices jump. they're talking about bitcoin mining, the bring in almost a $1000000000.00 in revenue next year. this is a $20000000000.00 economy. the remittance market, a 20 percent of g d, p would be boosted just by the savings on remittance right. and so this is to put it into the terms a, quote, black swan almost. this is a, an unforeseen event by the i m f, the world bank, the fed. nobody saw this coming except for big pointers. and if this catches on, the dominos fall in central america and latin america in the, in the whole region, goes to a big point. standard and now russia even is talking about picking a mining from china. we go to a big point, standard hyper, big quantization. how much would that pause and ag,
central risk to the dollar? i think you would, however, i just don't think any. god forbid it with that type of mentality coming from south america, knowing that they like to have the storage area of control of a lot of things. i just don't see, you know, that move actually happening a lot of those places. i highly doubt that argentina is ever going to do that. you know, given the political leadership, unless it comes from the population size of looking for alternatives, of doing anything that is outside of their own monetary system currently. but indeed, what you said now does create the demand for things like they coined in other crypto assets and in the whole environment in that. and that asset class in any, could potentially become a threat. but i will decide that i think that it's, you know, from, from looking at the political leadership and what they may actually do. i think that the, you know, having control over over what's actually happening is the higher priority than the
stability of a currency. even though occur. no i, i obviously agree that that's the right move, but i'm not here to tell you it's right or it's wrong, but i think i'm telling you i'm here to tell you what i think it's likely to happen . so as an investor, i highly doubt that we may see that pattern happening in a huge way in a lot of other countries, but i wrong but ok, so right. the countries like to be, are cherry and i like to have absolute control, but they're also like all human beings greedy. and if they see el salvadoran, government cook, you know, bringing in billions of dollars through tourism and mining and, and the best kind is appreciating, you know, they're going to be like, you know, hey, we want some of this action game theory kicks in and humans are human and they want to make money and if all of the money is collapsing, we only got about 20 seconds. but it doesn't greed, trump
a dictatorship mentality in this scenario. so a will, but at the same time i think we're going to see exactly what we're seeing, which is the idea of creating their own digital currency, which has nothing to do with the whole point of creating or using big coin at the 1st place. right? ah, i think that that's, that's a lot more likely, unfortunate, right? but it's just a repeat of the money and one gain the many advantage whatsoever. and china's already made that mistake in a few other countries and. and now they realized that big coins, the only way. all right, tom, because the thanks so much from chris. good capital. thank you very much max. all right, that's going to do it for this edition of ties report with me max kaiser and stacy herbert want to thank tabby costa, of chris, get capital. and so next time via the me, ah, ah right now there are 2000000000 people who are overweight or
obese. it's suitable to sell food that is fatty and sugary and faulty and addicted . not at the individual level. it's not individual willpower. and if we go on believing that will never change as obesity epidemic, that industry has been influencing very deeply. the medical and scientific establishment, ah, what's driving the? it's corporate, me, much of history is about patterns or ebbs and flows of political passions. most of the time these passions are negotiated through compromise. other times there is a people violence and even separation. the idea of succession today is not far fetch. we are witnessing of cultural succession and separation. could it go even
further? the top headlines are not c whistleblower daniel hale. the sentence to 45 month in prison for leaking classified details about america's drone assassination program of the program. we also speak to fellow whistleblowers when we kill civilians and then put in the official reports that they weren't children for example, they were go. that is a war crime. it's really a war untruth. and i just went to the government exam war with its own people. germany ross by a huge explosion of industrial park housing, chemical company, environmentalists. the concern the.
