1:30 am
this is how i. welcome everybody to watching my son out of the wallace and joining me today to help us sort of sift through all of this information about yemen is our to america correspondent thank you so much for joining me down good to be with you so to start off with the yemen president has been putting a lot of the blame or the very large part of the blame of the situation in yemen on the hutu rebels and their alleged support from iran even going as far as to say this recently. about iran carries out blatant interventions in yemen finances the who is the militia and provides it with weapons and missiles equipment and expertise and. i would like behalf of my people to thank you madam of saudi arabia it's its government and people played a leading role you know to getting our humanitarian suffering. so tell me what what
1:31 am
evidence is there that's a pretty bold statement from the president and say thank you considering all this destruction but what evidence is there that confirms that the iranian government is absolutely providing weapons to the rebels and well there's never been any provide any evidence provided whatsoever the as you can see there the yemeni president didn't provide any evidence it's something we hear from u.s. ambassador to united nations nikki haley all the time we hear it from the trumpet ministration we hear it from the saudi arabian monarchy that iran is providing arms and money to do three rebels but there's no evidence of it and the reality is that actually yemen has the most prior to the start of this war had the most weapons in the world in that country except it's only second to the united states so when the coup things took over certain air. there were huge amounts of weapons that the
1:32 am
saudis had actually left there so that's where these arms are coming from where it does seem as it's not as if they're getting these if if iran was handing out these or put it giving them weapons you think they would be better and not so far out of date as we've seen which sort of leads that these were left over from previous incursions by saudi arabia exactly i mean there's not the rebels don't have the you know this incredible technology that saudi arabia and the united arab emirates have that have been brought from you know washington from. from this country and so they have somewhat limited weaponry but they've been able to use it very effectively to repel the saudi invasion of port to some degree but that's starting to fall apart at this point one of the interesting thing is we do hear a lot from saudi arabia on this issue we hear a lot from the yemeni president what have we heard anything from the hutus and what
1:33 am
do they have to say about the accusations and what's going on but who these are often maligned as you know kind of octopus of terror from iran spreading all over the world connect to hezbollah but we never actually hear from them and i found this clip of the president of yemen's revolutionary council that i'd like to run. through the people in the states of the world that we in yemen are based on a just cause an exercise our right to self-defense and the defense of our homeland we are struggling for people's right to freedom and independence. so. i find it's very it's complicated when you look at that because there is no one in government one side as people but how much with all of the with all of the the accusations that iran is putting money into it that it's hezbollah's game.
1:34 am
through has to the who to this and now you hear them saying like this sort of land we're just trying to protect ourselves who else is in there who are the most who are the biggest supporters of what's going on there when it comes to arms and keeping this thing going well it's the us it's saudi arabia it's the united arab emirates and the u.k. basically the u.s. provides weapons we saw last week secretary of state mike pompei oh it was revealed that he protected the massive arms shipments in order to keep massive this huge arms deal worth billions of dollars for raytheon and so that's a major reason but the u.s. even more importantly provides mid air refueling to saudi and amorality warplanes that allow them to strike deep inside yemen committing these atrocities and without u.s. support it would end tomorrow so if president trump wanted to pull the plug on this what if what the u.n. calls the world's worst humanitarian crisis he could and it would be over tomorrow
1:35 am
. so you know we've looked at this the state department at least back i think was to temper thirteenth either nor today at the state department had said well we the saudi arabia is investigating the bombing of the boss and there is always this will let saudi arabia investigate themselves for their human rights violations that it's all about iran and it's always put are pointed toward it's iran it's iran it's around it's iran you're supposed to be terrified of them what do you think looking at all this information what are the accusations about iran really about well i think it's part of a larger project of western hegemony in the region and for here in washington or in riyadh there has to be kind of this narrative of a larger like iranian conspiracy the fighting you know the saudi arabia is fighting back against terrorism when it's actually fighting against a legitimate indigenous insurgency and so there's this narrative created that
1:36 am
there's really never any evidence for and so basically we just see this used to to pretext to carry out this devastating intervention well i think we're looking at a lot more information coming out and the more weeks and i wonder why i mean what what stops any country our country or any other here in the united states or anybody else from just stepping up because it seems that there's all this humanitarian aid from the united states granted that's coming in the form of things like usaid which we know is not exactly a and when you know as i spoke about in the beginning you have people who are living on strictly on humanitarian support and i don't see sort of any diplomatic solution for this or anybody even saying and diplomatic solution do you think that's even possible at this point what we saw the the u.n. recognize the president of yemen saying there is no diplomatic solution earlier but
1:37 am
i think. is essential to what so i would and what the trumpet ministration want to say is that there's only a military solution that the only thing to do is continue this war that's killed as many as fifty thousand yemenis that has eighteen million people on the brink of starvation and is essentially cannon fodder for a larger war eventually against iran where they're going to suppress this insurgency in yemen and try to tie it to iran and we see you know the hawks agitating for war against iran whether that's you know through direct war or through creating such difficult conditions inside iran through sanctions and pressure that the people overthrew the government but what we've seen there is that it actually has the opposite effect you know the so-called moderates who want to reach out to the west actually become more aligned with you know the so-called hardliners and so eventually there has to be
1:38 am
a diplomatic solution the alternative is just you know continue mass destruction and death which you know the only people who really benefit from that are people like raytheon and the defense contractors and everybody on capitol hill who sort of keep these things going thank you so much for helping us kind of understand those bits and pieces that are hard to make sense of thank you r.t. america correspondent dan cohen thank you. it's been the sounds of silence since june for the mars rover opportunity since the storm blocked the rover from nasa's field but their high resolution image and science experiments nagged a pic of the last rover and it's actually revealing quite a bit about the red planet and our quest to learn all about it r.t. america's ashley banks has more. after three months of no contact nasa found it's a missing rover the agency is now pursuing techniques to wake it up and early june a massive planet covering dust storm cut off the rovers access to solar power for
1:39 am
months nasa engineers have been trying. located and make contact with opportunity just a few days ago nasa is orbiter spotted the rover using its high rise camera nasa says the high rise image shows some reddening of the surrounding area so justin does fall out but it is not possible to determine how much dust is on the arrays themselves at this time the rover is sitting in an area called perseverance valley where opportunity is expected to figure out whether water wind or a mix of debris is responsible for the valleys you rouge and opportunity first arrived on mars in two thousand and four and has been driving across the planet for more than thirteen years that's many years past its expected mission length which was set at just three months since opportunity has been on mars and has suffered spells of amnesia forcing engineers to upload data at the end of every day and set of relying on opportunity to store valuable data engineers say opportunities still
1:40 am
has work to accomplish the space agency intends to listen for the rover into early twenty nine team opportunity isn't the only rover giving the agency trouble the curiosity rover based on a mars alongside opportunity as having issues transmitting information back to earth for now curiosities work is on hiatus as nasa troubleshoots the issue and washington actually banks art. as we go to break don't forget to let us know what you think of the topics we've covered on facebook and twitter feed our poll shows that argue dot com coming up part two of johnston's interview with dr marc berman about the long arm of the f.d.a. and learnable round up some truth about the mass of these around the world stay tuned to washington.
1:41 am
the democrats are not socially liberal they are pro-war and so are the republicans and the problem people have with trump is that he's pro peace and that's not acceptable in america today that runs except for against iran. well you know the ta ta because the walking the walk and you know you have to do it up and do but he's not actively going down the path that hillary clinton clearly was going . to use down through leaks laura's league are good cardio.
1:42 am
believe. me when you. look at the distance was most of the book called this a back. to school students about singing i mean there's. just too little.
1:43 am
the food and drug administration is tasked with protecting u.s. citizens by regulating and investigating prescription drugs among other things but in the last decade that same app the i.a.e.a. is overlooked fragile in research even allowing dangerous drugs to say on the market so what happens when a new technique is showing promise that the f.d.a. is standing in the way even going so far as to call some new stem cell treatments a manufactured drug that they must regulate all this despite the fact that stem cells treatments use stem cells from a person's own body well here is second part of sandstones interview on the subject of beverly hills cosmetic surgeon dr mark berman whose own stem cell treatments have run afoul of the f.d.a. . so how much though do you think that these this. basically persecution essentially from the f.d.a. . will reach dates from the from the relationship that the f.d.a.
1:44 am
has with big pharma in general with that with you know some of these companies basic loser to corruption yeah well i have to jump into dr gottlieb's head to understand that but it's not unreasonable to believe that he's in a long history of involvement with pharmaceutical industry and the pharmaceutical industry in many respects and set up guidelines that are you know been put together to protect the public so that you don't make drugs in a manner that can make thirty ok so if i was going to make cough syrup then i have this huge ten with gallons and gallons of stuff in it i don't want to expose it to air to the environmental or make sure everything i put in this tank is sterile and you know at the end i'm going to be pretty sure that my cough syrup is still in the comedy as they want to do the same thing with yourselves as a point of care surgical procedure well how about if i do surgery on your belly and
1:45 am
open it up i'm expose you. tonnes of air i use the crystal oids liquid formulas you know sailing the five l r you've heard those terms before the out we get right off the shelf they have already been validated for store really but i don't validate each one of those f.d.a. wants me to validate each one of those they don't want to expose your body to air they want to do all these things that you would do with a big mass produced pharmaceutical but we can validate our sterility you know when we're done and we have a nice stereo product and we can measure it for each patient that there's no bacteria and you just and i can do that for big thing cough syrup right of course at the end when you open up your jar of course cough syrup you exposed it to air right probably guzzle it out of the bottle now it's all contaminated the f.d.a. doesn't say anything about that but that's our analogy it's a one and done so we've got a problem where the f.d.a. really dealing come up with a way of really looking at what we're doing in
1:46 am
a really unique way and by trying to put it under this umbrella there's an implication as you brought up that maybe the pharmaceutical industry doesn't want us to be successful i don't understand though you know years ago one of the it's from soup companies genocide actually is quoted with the f.d.a. they said look we're working on a product called karta cells cost us millions of dollars to make it ejected bull you know biologic you can't let doctors just come along and do this otherwise we'll stop doing it and you know and innovation and i think that's pretty silly you think about it doctors have been doing surgery for a long time and when we come up with a surgical procedure like a coronary artery bypass that doesn't stop pharmaceuticals from trying to come up with new drugs or new stance or new ways of not having to bypass surgery so all i'm saying is let us do our surgical procedure if you come up with something better
1:47 am
we'll use it why wouldn't we but in the meantime. we have an ability to help literally thousands if not millions of people with their own cells and i got a feeling we're here for the long haul it's personal self there is a whole new idea a new concept but it is so simple and so safe and even though our prices may be reasonably high we could be charging wal-mart prices if there was a free market in that us right so do you think that ultimately. major in maybe trying pharmaceutical companies and basically that can the big pharma it's let's say pharmaceuticals themselves are essentially a more of a danger to the public then the way that the government treats illicit drugs to be . there i don't know if they're more of a danger than illicit drugs but they can be dangerous so if somebody has typical back pain we could put a some of their stem cells into the back and cure them and get them off opioids we
1:48 am
could probably reduce fifteen to twenty percent of the whole opioid epidemic because a lot of the opioid epidemic they're taking legal drugs we have patients like that all the time the fact shot your buddy from baseball did a study on concussion and what he found is if you give a rat's tail vein injection of your stem cell the stronger vascular fraction those of the cells we take from the fat so they're mixed with stem cells dress cells white so platelets all this stuff if you just give them a generation of that stuff there concussion goes away so we had a football player who has retired at thirteen concussions and he was with his daughter's soccer team just observing somebody hit a ball right on the back of his hat boom a guy goes down for the count they airlift him out they thought he was dead turns out it just really bad concussion the next day he called one of our affiliates for a business meeting because you sound terrible you got to get in here we'll get it fixed give them i.v. cells and over twenty four hours this concussion is gone not always can. she gone
1:49 am
he had like this brain fog that disappeared he just felt better his pains went away and everything sean visited with him three months later and they had a chance to talk and meet some other people he says you know what i've never felt this good and i wake up every morning scared i'm afraid that it's all going to reverse and i'm going to be back on those opioids and the pain pill you know all the other pain pills and you know sleeping pills and all these pills i had to take to get by with my entry i haven't had taking these pills so there is probably some fear that this is a disruptive technology is very safe and very simple and yet it could put a big dent in some of the you know financial profit making a big pharma and so i'm not i'm sure that that exists yet but the reality is we can coexist. true but essentially you're part of it which seems to be that way at future orientation which is going to be about servicing the individual which is
1:50 am
about treating the individual as an individual not as something that can be cured with the mass produced products basically which you have been living with the last hundred plus years the nature of our current establishment is very much sort of you know one one one medicine cures all approach right in this is part of seems to be the new way which is more about let's look at the individual let's see what genetically d.n.a. history indicates to us about this person and how this person needs to be treated the i'm sure we're go into that way and there are some pharmaceutical companies looking at taking your cells and you know altering them into a drug so they can cure you of cancer different things they're very expensive. got a car t. cell approved they have that's like four or seventy five thousand dollars to treat cancer patients were timed out some a very inexpensive though and it could probably fix most of our maladies and it's
1:51 am
just it's just such a disruptive technology it's ridiculous. but it's simple and you were making a point go back to it because i want to add something to this the nature of how the nature of medicine going forth is going to be about the individual about treating the individual and not just the mass yeah ok so you're right so one of the problems is when the f.d.a. comes in and sees what we're making it remember i said we take out your fat we get rid of the grease what's left over red cells white so play the growth factors and all these stem cells we call a strong vascular fracture but it's even though they're your cells and we don't know exactly how many stem cells are in there we know there's a lot but it's your own personal cells but the f.d.a. wants to categorize it and so you're right the thought process in d.c. is you have to have a drug that's uniform and dose strength and purity we go we can't do that we've got a snowflake it's going to be different every time but it's personal medicine and
1:52 am
here's what we've learned this is a really important point i wanted to make once that it's the state of the injury that determines whether your cells are going to be effective or not so for most diseases you can give a drug you know how many milligrams of a drug is going to take before you can kill an infection for example but we don't have that knowledge when you have an injury inside your body certain areas like a joint we can know that you know you need four or five million cells but for many diseases parkinson's alzheimer's multiple sclerosis all these no degenerate things we don't know how many cells have been injured there's no way to look in the body maybe one day there will be a way of doing a diagnosis and going oh you need two billion stem cells over eight months i had a patient with optic neuritis she was legally blind and forty milligrams of pred and so she went to get off the prednisone and just stay blind because it was killing her body i treated her thirty two times for free by the way and then she
1:53 am
finally stabilize she got better her eyesight returned with a. no treatment and then he got good enough by about five or six treatments that she could get a driver's license back but you know relapse a little bit but after thirty two treatments almost three years ago she stabilized how the world will we do a clinical study to figure that out this kind of thing you have to do it's trial and error we're going to have to with a lot of people we're going to have to get some idea of what works right that's unfortunate nature of what we're badly against the sort of these the idea of the scientific establishment being it's sort of universe ality to these approaches whereas when it's when it boils down to it each individual has the unique tendencies and traits that have to be approached. specific to that case and so it's very difficult to really as you say do these you know these blanket studies that are going to basically say it's always you know it's always be effective for to what degree now we've got cases the easiest thing we treat is knee arthritis. fix
1:54 am
every near our throat with stem cells no do we fix a lot of them eighty two percent of our patients have gotten better substantially better and that was we're talking about over thirty six hundred these twenty four hundred patients so some get both knees treated. why don't they all get better well because something is just can't get better why because if you were around all the cart which is no signal from the injuries so now you've got bone on bone these stem cells will know to make new cartilage ok so we're learning this stuff as we go along. so every time we do a story here in washington hawks regarding the mass death of honey bees or the effect of weed killer round up on those bees my inbox is filled with people telling me about i'm a conspiracy theorist so i cleared out my inbox because this one's really going to trigger some of the oh and their study from the university of texas at austin reveals that quite to say the active ingredient in the weed killer round up seven charges the gut microorganisms and beats without the healthy bacteria are more
1:55 am
susceptible. backstrom and even dad what they think is that this could be the major reason for the massive colony collapse that's been in the colonies around the world in addition further research is looking to the effect on butterfly deaths from products like roundup so here's a good scientists the university of texas at austin for not being deterred from the fight to save the babies and that's our show for you today and remember everyone in this world were not told that we love them out i tell you all. on top of the wallace keep on watching the awesome have a great day and night everyone. join
1:56 am
me every socially on the all excitement short and i'll be speaking to guest of the world of politics sports business i'm show business i'll see you then. i don't think the ladies are always trying to. destroy barbaro i don't think that they believe your dogs are also care about your car. and i seem to know what you mean you know israel and the united states i seem to paranoid about you're on the beach. when the make this manufacture consent to the public well. when the ruling class isn't protect themselves.
1:57 am
we don't want. to ignore middle of the room. it's hard to imagine decades after the war a nazi doctor was still active rich in the nineteen seventies crittle had as the chair of its board a man convicted of mass murder and slavery. a german company developed for the denied a drug that was promoted as completely safe even during pregnancy. it turned out to have terrible side effects what has happened to my baby is anything paul you know she said is just cut short arms minix a little mind victims i have to this day received no compensation then never
1:58 am
apologized for the suffering that not only want the money i want the revenge. and that it. had to get that out del and that will. lead to the money that one of my leaving to get there. did it and then they did and that is out there in this i'm up to a mile out of there and i think after i'm going to last and i don't i'm glad about how the now there are only so far as i'm going.
1:59 am
sippin out of them out so out of town a lot of the motley fool who got. out of my with them. as i asked by the way to really. get that they did. so yep and after. all if you look them in the look. and see if. i.
2:00 am
act. that it will be. normal. this is quite a gathering. a lot of people. lot of media. continues to make a stir i think u.n. general assembly and it seems no one is off limits. as beijing the latest in a line for a verbal lashing with a president accusing it of election meddling.
