communications regardless of form and classification the referral relate to any communications between president trump and president putin us democrats are doubling down on efforts to catch trump on alleged collusion with russia that could be because there's talk the current mellow probe into the issue will prove to be a disappointment in that respect as caleb maupin explains. there's an old saying among cops and prosecutors if you throw enough at a wall eventually something will stick and this old saying usually expressed with less polite terminology seems to now be the montra of the democrats in congress gerry navl or has been selected to lead the charge impeachment is a long way down the road we don't we don't have the facts yet but we're going to initiate. a proper investigation so you have peach somebody you have to persuade the american public that it ought to to happen to remember the bob muller investigation that highly expensive two year long probe into allegations that
donald trump had colluded with russia not too long ago democrats had many people convinced that it would be a huge game changer. well the final report is imminent and some are worried that it won't contain a bombshell or smoking gun revelation but some democrats seem to have the same overall goal because we're going to go in there really. i eighty one people have received a letter from the house judiciary committee they plan on following up on every last lead from the testimony of trump's former warrior michael cohen at this point they are planning to investigate the relations between the white house and trump's family the firing of james komi foreign trade deals and much much more and it won't just be the judiciary committee that is looking into donald trump you have to do is
follow the transcript if there were names that were mentioned records that were mentioned during the hearing we're going to take a look at all of that the u.s. constitution lays out procedures for trying and removing a president who is guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors the idea is to put a check and balance on the executive branch so that it is not above the law however it seems that as of late invest. ations and impeachment have turned into just another play in the never ending political football game. r.t. in new york donald trump has branded the new efforts to impeach him harassment of innocent people he also pointed out there's no evidence of collusion ties with russia former u.s. republican congressman michael patrick flanagan believes the democratic controlled inquiry will backfire. the democrats knowing that it's not going to be much of a report are now trying to build their own campaign and continue the activity of them all or in their own clumsy imperfect way and their goal is to take this
president down and make sure that he is in no way possibly reluctant next year and so they will do their best to keep this alive if more was keeping his or it is is his investigation somehow alive they would be doing this because the need for this investigation would be would be vitiated by above all are doing here this but now more is done and he's apparently not going to report much of anything this is the democrats furious so they're going to build an investigation that they control that they run that they can control the outcome of an surprise a price that will have the outcome that they wanted to have and no one will believe that. the venezuelan a foreign ministry has condemned the latest u.s. sanctions against caracas calling them a historical era meanwhile washington special own voice for that as whaler has said new measures are also being considered targeting countries that supports president
. we haven't done that yet secondary sanctions. it's clearly a possibility it would depend on the conduct of the regime over time. it would depend on the conduct of those. entities it's been over a month since one greater declared himself interim president of venezuela but president may do you are oh is still in power a u.s. state department spokesman was asked about the apparent setback. the fifty four countries have now recognized. as interim president so we're going to continue pushing. for and continue pushing since you've just mentioned the number again robert fifty four that's a that's only about a quarter. of countries in the right if you you know number of countries but we've got major supports in the western hemisphere and i would just point that out as well as europe. and. if we look at the mocker cease we're doing pretty
well as well ok all right so with the drop in ministration is doing is forcing us. and other countries to jews are you going to war there's a growth attempted coup to overthrow the elected government of venezuela or are you going to go look. the board there is this government that the united states does not like so is international or the venezuelan conflict on a very dangerous basis because countries now are being forced to do or they're going to go with an aggressive action or are they going to those who are democracy and the rides of the people because whatever. the u.s. threatens to tighten the economic screws on cuba over its primitive starts the u.s.
national security adviser said the new restrictions would target cuba's military john bolton also tweeted the region's nations should condemn caracas russia's foreign ministry described bolton statement as crazy and inappropriate morant council have takes a closer look at washington's role in south america. the united states is exceptional literally balland by different rules to you and me other nations. states' groups you see they have the right to decide who rules where like in venezuela they decide who is a dictator and who isn't they decide which dictators rule and which don't now and state supports any number of dictators who are only human rights including the leaders of egypt saudi arabia the u.a.e. you don't see that the united states support for other brutal dictators around the world undermines the credibility of the argument you make no i don't think it does
make it separate and i think look in this administration we're not afraid to use the phrase monroe doctrine. it's an odd chaotic nineteenth century policy that basically says no nation in the americas may be colonized by europeans out of bounds for europeans and everyone not from the americas a little later teddy roosevelt twisted this policy turned it inside out instead of protecting american nations the us now toppled governments that didn't like their now they've twisted it again now they think they can do this everywhere all over the world and a zoo l.-a and a bill that legitimizes us meddling that terry quire threat assessment a strategy to counter russian influence in venezuela. in effect they're trying to justify meddling in venezuela pogany because it's too friendly with russia and
saying no not that that is who asked for it not even america's champ there but you don't see broad support for i believe that there is respectful participation of russia in regards to watching the fate of our country but the same goes for other countries that are paying attention here america knows better in syria half the world away it's the same story in syria the united states where used to plumb us in work with our partners to expel every last iranian brute and work through the un a process to bring peace and stability to the long suffering syrian people for the life of me i don't remember syrians are asking the united states to get rid of iranians but america knows better africa too many chinese there thinks washington up to no good now is the time to boot them
out china uses bribes opaque agreements and the strategic use of debt to hold states in africa captive to beijing's wishes and demands goes without saying it wasn't the africans who asked for this in fact according to the latest gallup poll most africans approve of chinese investment plans leadership in africa but the united states knows better you know why because it's special exceptional better than you or me officially our mission is to reassert our sovereignty reform the liberal international order this is a unique exceptional country. imagine mr monreal would turn in his grave if he could see what is but nine policy protecting the weak from european. colonizes what that has been turned into
a license to kill to meddle to topple governments and politically burn the continent oh you've got to be special all right we have all sorts of recent cases libya syria iraq where u.s. intervention has essentially zero literally any possibility of democracy but this is true throughout the decades the united states has meddled in the affairs of america overthrowing one democratically elected government after another whether in one nine hundred fifty four with our or the interventionist military out of the one nine hundred eighty s. supporting brutal military regimes in countries like yourselves or although venezuela is in the fight moment on cuba nicaragua are also mentioned by figures like bolton in the same breath this is clearly a concerted effort to bring latin american countries once again under the iron
control. a british born man in syria has criticised the government's decision to strip him of his citizenship he called the move unfair and racist to k. sharif describes himself as an aid worker but admits to previously engaging in armed combat in the country and a city a check in has the details the story of a british born syria based aid worker fighting for justice has been making headlines in the u.k. this week to care sharif has spent years in syria as a prominent aid worker described as one of the most high profile for nationals in he's now speaking out against what he's dubbed a racist and unfair system of citizenship stripping laws i mean k. i came out here to help the innocent people that were being massacred by the bashar regime i'm unable. the stories come to light following the lifting of the man's anonymity in a case that saw the u.k.
government stripped him of his british citizenship back in twenty seventeen he was informed of the decision with this letter. it is assessed that you are a british pakistani jewel national whose travel to syria and is aligned to an al qaeda aligned group your return to the u.k. would present a risk to the national security over the united kingdom my decision has been taken in part reliance on information which in my opinion should not be made public in the interest of national security deemed a national security risk and twenty seventeen the man had been a media darling just a few years prior. sharif's appearances on prominent news networks as well as dispatches via his live updates from syria blog posts left his political preferences no secret the reason why i
came to syria is to help the syrian people who are being massacred by the bashar he rebels why do they do it the problem is is that the drug of of of the syrian regime is a forced woman and children and civilians that are facing the rest these individuals who could be cannot take their word that they are that over there is aid workers because we know that these aid groups are operating in opposition held territory are only operating with the kid can i even say and at a messy of some of the most grievous and force violent terrorist groups that are nor so these aid workers so-called cannot exco themselves from the activities of these groups because in and working in these opposition held areas controlled by these groups they are giving sanction to these opposition groups and sanction to their activities sharif's lawyer has been seeking evidence from the home office to find out why exactly his client was deemed
a threat meanwhile the home office has had this follow up on the specifics of the case we do not comment on in. vidual cases but any decisions to deprive individuals of the citizenship are based on available evidence i'm not taken lightly the issue of british citizenship being revoked has been in the spotlight in the u.k. recently due to a spike in terrorism and crime according to official figures more than one hundred people were stripped of their nationality and twenty seven team compared to just fourteen the year before as sharif's appeal continues he maintains his innocence but the home office seems to have already made up its mind and start to trickle out reporting for r.t. in london. so it's come a british primary school has suspended classes on l.g.b. as he writes softer an outcry from parents we have details for you after the break .
seemed wrong. but old rules just don't hold. any old belief yet to shape our disdain comes to educate and indeed from an equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. life expectancy in america is plummeting if you look at the chart it's shocking to look at almost every other country it's kind of inching up on one side of the chart and then as an outlier is the united states is way over here it is all crashing down from the drugs having junk food having junk culture having it's junk politics and fake news it's all fake and fake doesn't sustain life and you see it in the
numbers it's clear. to. come back a primary school in britain second city birmingham has reportedly caved into pressure on temporarily pulled the plug on its l.g. bt lessons the hundreds of parents reportedly kept their children at home in protest. as the details. well the cause of this route is a educational diversity program called no outside isn't it aims to teach kids about the different types of families that they might encounter and talking to them about things like the idea of having two mom or two dads and reading books to kids
as young as four about the concept of same sex families a program was devised by the deputy head of the school at the center of this route his name's andrew marr fattened actually he's been nominated for the world's best teacher award take a look at him talking about the program mostly lula another cyclone both of them mostly nearly got some tissues on them back. this is about teaching to you are different you can solutions if anybody does a huge going to. school we have to find ways to teach children to talk to counter them. but the majority of the parents at this school are on happy with andrew law facts teaching methods it's a predominantly muslim school and parents fundamentally disagree with the idea of teaching kids about homosexuality in l g b t issues some of our viewers might know
that islam in islam homosexuality is forbidden so up until now the school had really held and said that they would continue this what they see as a very necessary diversity program but now a number of media outlets saying that the school has sent a letter to parents saying that the lessons are going to be stopped take a lesson up to the end of this term we will not be delivering any outsiders lessons in our long term your curriculum plan is this often has already been blocked for religious education because you simply will continue as normal and welcoming. will . he then through all this comes after protests last friday some six hundred parents said that they hadn't taken their kids to school that's eighty percent of the school's attendance of the school's pupils the school wouldn't confirm that number but these protests have been taking place for
a while now ever since this rouse started and some of them have been pretty sizeable take a look. at. that . i'm prior to the protests taking place there had been a big school petition that some four hundred predominantly muslim parents had signed calling on the school to stop these lessons say this is clearly an issue that's really riled up the parents in this school in the community i reported on the storing from birmingham a couple of weeks ago and this is what the parents had to say to me it's not for the reappeared for the reception kids. to homosexuals you should learn about yet old age not right now because it can easily get you can once did teach you kids no
need to steer with boys and boys who that's not a good thing this was a two hour live with a like it's because if you have to obviously clearly says you can't discriminate against religion and whatnot that's what they're doing it's ninety nine percent muslim it's not about the muslim that the jewish community the other communities the christian communities they're all have issues around the way things are being done now i've been in touch with some of those parents from the school and so far what i've heard is that this diversity program hasn't exactly been stopped it's more that it's been posed for this task and some of the headlines would suggest that. it's sort of a big final ending to it that doesn't seem to be the case we've requested clarification from the school and we are still waiting for it but if the moment it looks that if the school sticks with this program and returns to it next or next year well it may well face the same protests all over again.
the u.s. and nato are set to expand the naval presence in the black sea the news was confirmed by nato supreme allied commander in europe addressed to the u.s. senate on his piece of it has more. u.s. general curtis scuppered altie is being giving testimony before the senate armed services committee know he was how to create a question put to him by the chair over the u.s. is deployment in the black sea region who was it targeting and was it sufficient in general skeptical of these view it needs more work both the united states and in nato has stepped up its presence in the black sea do you think it's sending a clear message to president vladimir putin i think it is i mean a the frankly don't like us in the black sea and it's international waters and we should see on fly their scuppered off the isn't you common all garden general he also has
a well he has quite a bit more power than not he's also the commander of the u.s. european command he's also the nato supreme allied commander and it was and what he's been asking for is for two navy destroyers to be sent into areas where they could be operational in the black sea they would be alongside four other u.s. navy destroyers that are currently stationed in spain it wasn't just russia though that came in the crosshairs of general scuffle rotty turkey a nato ally was also in for some some treatment from the nato supreme commander and crew was basically put on notice and told that should it pursue russian air defenses well they could well find that there deliveries of thirty five fighter bombers from the u.s. going to write this is a huge decision for turkey it connection in many different ways to that to the to
the. employment and the. integration and they have within the system itself the f. thirty five but also the f.m. national other systems that we we sold to turkey as well and so wide i would hope that they would rican. shooter this one decision on ash four hundred one system of blood potentially. forfeit. many of the other systems and in the motion one of the most important systems at least. while the u.s. is a big part of the russian foreign ministry has put forward their thoughts on these statements from this u.s. general they say that any activity like the. risks worsening the security situation in the black sea and said that the black sea is all about cooperation well that cooperation from the u.s. side it would seem is that they want to send to washington into the region. this is absolutely against peace and called for ration as this is
a sign of confrontation this is a sign of even in launching the middle actions against russia so it is definitely a bad sign it's absolutely a sign of the wrong direction and we need to peace who black see a peaceful black sea of cooperation between the different countries or all of those see us and nato is doing is absolutely wrong the way you know every true occasion visit can do against russia and then doing that develop think in the main strong of the sanctions against russia they asked sending more troops imagery equipment to the east quote of fresh air they even discussing to install a new and you have athens in central europe these is to try to develop a new arms race visit russia is a big economic power of the nato countries and the u.s. in the bigger economic poets russia they really believe that they asked john now than russia that they could get back on their side that they would give up their
national interests and their own independent foreign policy i think this is it is losing by the nato countries and above all of the trump administration believe these and. thanks for joining us on r.t. international we're back in thirty minutes with the latest. in a world of big partisan lot and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door on the shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth. the time is now for watching closely watching the hawks.
the country's gone into a nihilistic fever i think they've got to hit the road and get out the traveling across america to find what makes america take them to charlotte is the genius of this place especially american hero this is it we've come a point around which element is done so we always are on the margins to what this whole culture thing. we're starting last with is really going to headed east into the swamp we're going into the belly of the beast and i think i want to leave now doesn't anymore gondo them it may be completely different but in this. my seven years doing drugs my nephews was still in drugs my sister just with doing drugs it was like an epidemic of drug abuse america's public enemy number one
in the united states is drug abusers started going after the users in the prison population who are we started treating sick people people who are addicted to these drugs like criminals while i was on the hill. the war on drugs was a mistake there are countless numbers of people who are in prison for. sins for our own or minor offenders in the drug trade it's a lot watching your children grow up and miss you in wave and say by day as you're walking out of a business it's just it doesn't get easy. to . slip. the. yes well this is how the live.
