freeze military aid to ukraine to pressure the country's leader into digging the dirt on trump's likely election rival former vice president joe biden and his son hunter. the president has admitted to asking the president ukraine to take actions which would benefit him politically the action of the truck the actions of the trump presidency revealed dishonorable fact of the president's betrayal of his oath of office betrayal of our national security and the trail of the integrity of our elections therefore today and announcing the house of representatives moving forward with an official impeachment inquiry they're going to lose a larger lose we get this is a big to do this devout but we really election i mean if she does that they all say that's a positive but really from the election so these new allegations will be added to what 6 committees already investigating about trump if it moves forward as an impeachable offense then a vote will be held in the democrat controlled house of representatives even if
that's voted through though it will still have to pass through the republican controlled senate and 2 thirds majority is required there which is highly unlikely reports of 'd classified complaint meantime from an intelligence community whistleblower about trump's alleged misconduct is what started all this in the most last week the exact details are still unknown trump has agreed now to release a transcript of the call that'll be coming in sometime later today but as democrats continue to push for impeachment the republicans say it's all just sour grapes over trump winning the presidency in the 1st place. new or not i decided to ruin this treasure knew it would attack me and anyone else who thought it would be a trick. when you put a killer inside and shows that the president clearly thinks he's above the law now he's admitted to using his office to the country to interfere in 2020 i fully support the impeachment inquiry i believe that impeachment at this juncture would
be terribly divisive for the country at a time when we are already extremely divided they have been investigating this president before he even got elected they have voted 3 times on impeachment on this floor twice they voted before one word the mall report came back what she said today made no difference of what's been going on the couch democrats have got impeachment fever and the only cure is going to be reelected the president in the 2020 alexion they want to continue the switch on trying to teach the president because they don't agree with the results of the 2016 election so polls show the public support for impeachment usually doesn't go higher than 40 percent anyway i mean even during the height of the miller investigation when a probe was launched into the now debunked trump russian collusion that was the case we have more on this from american scotty now hughes and former u.s. diplomat jim chatteris them. president trying to saying he's going to release the actual transcript or now release the audio tracks or whatever he has regarding this
phone call in question if it turns out this call turned out to be everything above board and completely legit and even showing what caused this phone call in the 1st possible and wrongdoing by the biden campaign this could turn out to be a very big problem the democrats are going to have seen yet here in america those that supported trump are already declaring that thank you miss pelosi you just got president trumpery elected i think they realize that unless they basically because much disclosure as possible they're going to have even more problems with some of the republicans and remember that's where their focus they need to i forget the exact number of 12 or 15 republicans in the senate did not to defect to convict the president if it were as i believe when he was impeached i think that's really where their focus is so they're going want to show look we have nothing to hide here the president didn't do anything wrong and then they will argue over whether simply raising the question $100.00 biden is itself a defense or that there had to be something like
a quid pro quo just sort of reminds me of what all of trump's defenders kept saying there was no collusion there was no collusion but at the same time it became established a fact for everybody that the russians tried to interfere in our lection i think that's sort of what we're going out here is that there was no quid pro quo yeah but you sought the help of a foreign government that should be enough to get rid of you meantime sides of this . news was russia's foreign minister slammed the u.s. for not issuing visas to russian diplomats planning to attend the u.n. general assembly he called it a shameful kicked off yesterday got more reaction to that coming up. the rest of us soldier over his alleged plans to bomb a major news network has exposed a wider plot he allegedly also plan to travel to ukraine to fight alongside the infamous far right as of the end with more on this story today don't call it. planning a terror attack preparing to murder and tea for members threatening to assassinate
the president this isn't a movie plot it's the allegations that recently landed jarrett william smith in an f.b.i. cell and authorities say his plans were only confined to the us of a smith had spoken about his desire to travel to ukraine to fight with the ukraine based violent far right paramilitary group as of battalion why ukraine well it's a hotbed for the far right and white supremacy which have a big influence in the country's military the as all battalion for example its insignia features 2 nazi era symbols still widely used by neo nazi groups.
smith was dead set on joining up with as of and it's not just him reports say some of his collaborators were already fighting with another neo nazi group called right sector it seems kiev has a poll for americans on the far right remember charlottesville. for members of a far right group involved in that riot were arrested and lo and behold they too had a fixation on the eyes of battalion they even traveled to europe and met one of the battalions leaders with so many neo nazis in the us you would think washington would unambiguously oppose their growth but that's just not the case at 1st in 2015 congress unanimously voted against military aid to the neo nazi as. i am grateful that the house of representatives unanimously passed my amendments last night to ensure that our military does not train members of the repulsive neo nazi
azoff battalion but just one year later washington changed its mind and all of the sudden pictures began surfacing on social media of as of and u.s. soldiers striking poses together it makes you wonder if the u.s. even thinks nazi ideology is a threat let alone something negative frankly you now are betting screens for human rights violations not for ideology neo nazis you know can join the us army to looks like the us army will take anyone these days as long as they hate the people washington wants them to hate in this case given the race of anti russian. dominated the united states or at least a decade if not more it isn't surprising that there would be people who were eager to join the military who. are crazy with.
russia as i look around leaders and when you have a volunteer. military as well as the us does it does attract. not necessarily very good people it also attracts people who subscribe to dangerous etiology there should be a bit gross as to prevent people who have these dangerous goes. however. probably the us military simply doesn't have the vetting process there so eager to get as many recruits as possible that they wave almost everyone in the. politicians and journalists around the world are still picking over the speech of 16 year old climate activist group to turn back at the un climate summit while she's been widely praised for her impassioned address what i just opponents though say she's created a cult for the younger generation we're going to have a senior correspondent next looks at the thin line then between activism and
fanaticism. the thing with climate change is it's called placated we don't fully understand it ourselves we know it's happening we know some of the reasons but it's all tenuous and the guys who have the best grasp of it scientists and always easy to understand but that's why mother nature gave us climate change activists no need for his meteorology degree there. are many activists it isn't about science or facts policy or debate it's faith belief in something greater something they don't necessarily understand conics plain and boon comprehend like the judeo christian religion the world is
going to end in 12 years if we don't address climate change we face catastrophe and crisis on this planet climate change that though is not something that we have to prepare for it is something that is here you know there's a word for that the in a feeling that the world is about to end that armageddon is around the corner schooled eschatology and it formed the basis of early christian dogma but the day of the lord will come as a thief in the night in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise and the elements will melt with fervent heat both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up we should be grateful to climate change activists trying to save our unworthy polluted souls save us from judgment day and as with any faith they have a prophet that you need
a college education jesus. didn't have a university degree now the lord of climate stability has sent us his daughter we are not in school today. and this time we are not alone we have some adults one i work today either. the ill and why because this is an emergency our house is on the cyan faith is for everyone the rich the poor all genders races and ages this is a hooley crusade and anyone old enough to hold a protest side or throw a rock concert of the holy spirit of the atmosphere.
brings a tear to my eyes it's exactly like the crusade of the year 1212 what thousands of european children joined up to liberate the holy land of course none of them got them many died along the way but c'mon it's kids doing stuff spies everybody plus it makes the heretics look bad oh yeah like with any were legit there are heretics those who refuse to acknowledge god or whatever you believe in they have a name in this faith climate change deniers is no middle ground either if you're a skeptic you are a denial and climate change deniers a dirty trashy folk the sort who are going to roast in the hells whether. lights
stay on even when nobody's home climate change deniers are a danger to our security the gloves are off predatory climate deniers are threat to our children the depravity of climate change denial it sure looks like climate change is the new 21st century dogma over i've called going through to you we in the media we want to save your soul if you already paid less we're going to church well online church just open your internet browser and go to n.b.c. dot com confess there confess my children confess your sins cleanse your polluted souls seriously they've got a climate confessions page that tell me this isn't a full blown religion. as they see a correspondent with
a 50 coming up this wednesday afternoon after the break from moscow what's good for boys is good for girls and vice versa the battle over stereotypes has been taken no to french toast shops no less just to shake things up a bit. in a world of big partisan movies 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 bath 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 world is driven by a dream shaped by our own personal. thinks . we dare to ask. this is about the kicked off yesterday russia's foreign ministry saying 10 members of its delegation failed to get us fees as the head of the un general assembly debates which are set to enter the 2nd round later today the head of russia's foreign affairs committee very notable guy was one of those involved he called it
a provocation and the foreign minister sergei lavrov also slammed the move. i think comments are redundant here it is just a shame for this nation which is trying to portray itself as the ultimate truth it's just a real shame when i was outside inside with business was happening donald trump lashed out of iran and venezuela and called all nations around the globe to embrace nationalism he was addressing the 1st day of the u.n. general assembly debates in new york but his delivery didn't seem quite the usual. one of the greatest security threats facing peace loving nations today is the repressive regime in iran. the regimes record of death and destruction is well known to us all. the dictator maduro is
a cuban puppet protected by cuban bodyguards hiding from his own people well cuba plunders venezuela's oil wealth to sustain its own corrupt communist rule. wise leaders always put the good of their own people. and their own country 1st the future does not belong to us their future belongs to patriots. has left many people wondering what happened to his. public appearances many described. as pretty low and pretty boring.
into thinking they are going to leave. us with. this is the book i was reading while donald trump was insulting the general assembly if you xenophobic and paralysed the schools. recantation. and reciprocal. america's goal is haunted. your spirit. perhaps donald trump could record his comments airing now as bad time reading i'm ready to crash trump is reading this speech like a sleep deprived hostage most boring and long stem in a speech i have ever heard in my life world leaders have now started reading books
instead of listening to president trump speech at the u.n. general assembly. well over new york city it's about 20 past 5 in the morning though so things are getting underway yet on day 2 but looking ahead the leaders of ukraine and iran are expected to be among the speakers on day 2 of the 74th general assembly debate will be across as the day continues. france next story from there the country's got a new target in the battle against sexism in the children's toys ministers of making moves to mix things up a bit so that manufacturers and retailers don't simply push dolls for girls and cars for boys so now a new agreement no less has been signed between the french government and toy makers hoping to attract more girls toward science and math it also suggests that manufacturers advertisers and stores remove sexist color schemes and labeling the end they say to broaden children's imaginations so they're not influenced by stereotypes as they grow up we're looking to work in the creation of new toys and
also how they are represented in advertisement and the way their assault fighting discrimination later on requires action right from the very 1st days from been seen as a welcome move to broaden young minds to claims adjourn their engineering this is what i guess thought. it's really good because they want to put an end to gender death toll is they want to give the freedom to children to choose whatever they want to so we're not forcing boys to play with dolls if they don't want to of course and girl again they can play with adult all and then they can play with other stuff are related to 2 in a computer science maybe in math there are other things that actually will be an incentive to women to choose other subjects in university a psychology professor in cambridge university simon baron cohen has shown that a survey is several days after birth female babies show an interest in faces
whereas male babies typically show an interest in mechanical items so there's some hard wiring there the idea that somehow you can change society by part by by forcing boys to play with dolls and and girls play with trucks is a is an absolute it's ludicrous even there are scientists that they know that the brain of a human's i mean even though they're different they can be definitely. forced to think something when they're youngest still we we can be kind of manipulated a network especially early years that it's all about freedom it's a very important i really hope one day you know you were just talking about manipulation power its founder you were just talking about manipulating and this is what you want to do you want to manipulate boys into becoming girls more like girls and girls into becoming more like boys but it's one of the reasons that we're not just like this is one of the reasons why only 9 percent of british women today
identify as feminists you know then of the girls will gravitate towards certain toys and boys will gravitate to certain toys and that is not a problem you know i mean you know women are not declining to go into engineering courses because some more full you know parents stop them playing with trucks or lego on. something is as a youngster you know girls and boys a different men and women a difference and there is no problem to be fixed i remember as a baby girl you know i was in the kindergarten and the only toys so that i could play with that they were only stuff related to becoming an r. dress or becoming and this attention that become in a housekeeper a gas and a house why i thought because i could cook i could you know make everything and a hoover in the house of course and then a little you know a fake house that we had and this is so wrong because i would have loved to do the type of the toy to play with the toys but i couldn't because actually i was forced
by the gender stereotype toys to to only play with that type of toys stay across the latest on the impeachment inquiry story into donald trump on our web site breaks it u.k. boris jumps on a plane that moment but to face the music of the supreme court dramas of yesterday crowds already got a recovering outside parliament to kick off in an hour. in the coming hours for him or sco this late is not wednesday morning just wednesday after what it was the day go on 25. have a great rest the afternoon make it even better by staying with us for half an hour of crosstalk right ahead. a tense situation in venezuela is still all over the news the problem in venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented but that socialism has been
wholly employed inside venezuela things look different we're going to announce sanctions against the truest of venezuela so if you're. in the slip. down. to the sea on the. long. but the who story isn't new nixon called in henry kissinger to tell him that it would not be tolerated in latin america. and old terms of economic and social system could take hold and therefore the policy would be to make the chilean economy scream so wants and making the economy of venezuela screed.
hello and welcome to cross talk we're all things are considered i'm peter lavelle the democrats want to recapture the white house in a bad way their hatred of trump with the help of the liberal mainstream media has witnessed presidential candidates say some of the most extraordinary things but there is nothing extraordinary about their hatred of the president the question is do they have ideas to win in 2020. across talking democrats i'm joined by my guest kevin chavez in washington he is managing partner of the chavez group as well as former president of d.c.
young democrats here in moscow we have graham elwood he is a regular on the door show is well as host of the political bija lanty on you tube also in moscow we were joined by alex kristof he is the director and writer for the duran dot com all right gentlemen cross-like rules in effect that means you can jump in anytime you want and i always appreciate kevin you're representing the democrats on this on this program so welcome as i said in my introduction it's very short and very straight and straightforward i mean other than the hatred of the current president donald trump in the white house what do the democrats actually really have because if you've been watching the presidential debates it seems to me in my opinion they're kind of out of step with the general public and the electorate i mean it's really a lunge to the left maybe i'm wrong go ahead haven't well there has been for a lot of can of this they've been trying to launch to the left as you put it but let's keep in mind of course president trump is one of the most unpopular presidents we've had with approval rating consistently in the low forty's. disapproval rating is consistently in the low fifty's and among independents his
approval rating is about $38.00 or 39 percent so this dislike for donald trump is not just limited to democrats or those running for president so that's why electability has been an important topic but i think the other topic and i'm sure will talk about it more is health care what will happen with health care which plan will be able to coalesce democrats to support one person will be the bernie sanders medicare for all where you eliminate premiums but taxes may go up or is it joe biden's plan which says hey let's allow people to keep private insurance but we add a public option i think that will be the main issue and has consistently at least in polls seems to be the main issue other than electability argument around defeating trump ok will graham if i can glean from what kevin said it's what corporatists version of medicare is going to be presented to the american people because that's what it sounds like it's it seems to me that you know even though there's a.
