What To Know About The Attempted Coup In Venezuela (HBO)

Violent clashes broke out between protesters and the military in Caracas Tuesday after Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó launched what he said was the final phase in his plan to depose embattled President Nicolás Maduro.

Guaidó’s attempted coup could do just that — or it could mark the latest, and perhaps last, failed attempt by an opposition movement that enjoys significant international backing but has struggled to gather the widespread support in the military it needs to wrest control of the country.

“Today, brave soldiers, brave patriots, brave men devoted to the constitution have heeded our call. We’ve also heeded the call, and we have found ourselves in the streets of Venezuela once and for all,” Guaidó said early Tuesday from outside a military air base in eastern Caracas.

Hundreds of pro-opposition protesters and some armed forces responded, filling the streets in the opposition’s wealthy stronghold of eastern Caracas. Armed forces that defected to Guaidó’s side clashed with the national guard, and gunfire was reportedly exchanged.

The violent clashes soon spread, with pro-opposition protesters throwing stones, Molotov cocktails, and tear-gas canisters at soldiers loyal to Maduro. They were greeted by extreme force from the military: an armored truck was seen on video plowing into protesters as they threw objects at the vehicle. At least 50 people have been injured in the clashes, CNN reported, citing a hospital official in Caracas.

Guaidó and his mentor, the longtime opposition figure Leopoldo López, who’s been under house arrest since 2015, meanwhile, tried and failed to breach the city center, a well-known Maduro stronghold, Bloomberg reported. In a grim sign for the opposition, López then requested asylum at the Chilean embassy in Caracas. In a tweet, Chile’s foreign minister Roberto Ampuero confirmed Lopez’s arrival at the embassy.

Keiser Report: Not Free to Choose (E1314)

Check Keiser Report website for more: http://www.maxkeiser.com

In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max and Stacy discuss a Bloomberg piece asking if competition is dying and taking capitalism with it. The fact is that the top two companies in most industries control an increasing share of the market in the US and so Americans are no longer free to choose… and it shows. Walk into any hardware store – and 80% of the market is controlled by just two corporations – and it is a bleak landscape of bored employees unable to provide any information at all about the products they are selling. In the second half, Max continues his interview with Chris Martenson of PeakProsperity.com about Medicare4All, the economics of fracking, and thoughts from the precipice.

Capitalism is not working? (E1307)

In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max and Stacy discuss the surge in share buybacks as corporations turn their Trump tax break into more income for shareholders now, meaning less investment in the future of the actual company. In the second half, Max continues his interview with Mish Shedlock of MishTalk.com about the credit cycle turning. They discuss the recent Bloomberg opinion piece arguing that ‘capitalism is not working.’ They also talk about 50 million empty homes in China and what that portends for the global economy.

Keiser Report: China’s Tiny Chip? Or anti-China Plan? (E1294)

Check Keiser Report website for more: http://www.maxkeiser.com/

In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max and Stacy discuss the bombshell Bloomberg investigation which found industrial scale espionage by China against some of the leading US corporations; or did it? The corporations named – namely, Amazon and Apple – absolutely deny all the allegations in the story, so what has really happened? They reference back to an earlier article discussing a leaked memo whereby the Trump administration had plans to ‘launch a major broadside against China.’ In the second half, Max continues his interview with Trace Mayer about bitcoin, altcoins and smart contracts.

The Juicero Founder Is Really Into Raw Water (HBO)

Just a couple years ago, Doug Evans was making his Silicon Valley dreams come true when he raised over $120 million in venture capital for his juicer startup, Juicero. Now, after the company collapsed, he’s trying to figure out what to do next.

You might have heard of Juicero. The $700 wifi connected home juicer became the embodiment of Silicon Valley excess, and shortly after a Bloomberg story revealed you could squeeze the company’s juice packs with your hands instead of the expensive juicer, the company folded. Juicero was ridiculed for its price tag and the fact that it required a wi-fi connection to work. But Evans says the media got it all wrong, and never gave the company a chance.

Now, Evans has a new obsession: raw water. Evans garnered new scrutiny earlier this year when he announced on his Instagram that he was partaking in a five-day “raw water cleanse.” As he ponders his next gig, Evans joined VICE News to harvest raw water in Northern California.
