a phone call with the leader of the american president thinks he'll get a boost in the 20 twentieth's from the house leader calling him for a late. president trail of his oath of office about national security and the trail of the integrity of our elections i mean if she does that they all say that's a positive for me from the election. coming up on the program the arrest of an american soldier over an alleged plot to bomb a major news network. blinder the fight alongside a far right but telling in ukraine. fighting over the toy from the strike and imposing gender stereotypes. by getting toy makers on board for a more balanced approach but is it just social engineering. they want to give the.
to chimps and to choose whatever they want to girls and boys of different men and women of difference and there is no problem to be fixed. live from moscow to the world this is r.t. international pleasure to have your company my name's union o'neill their top story the u.s. host speaker nancy pelosi has opened a formal impeachment inquiry into double trump's alleged abuse of presidential powers during a july phone call with ukraine's leader the actions of the trump presidency revealing 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 election look it's just a continuation of the it just gets worse we'll show you a little history if she does that they all say that's a positive for really from the election how can you do this if you haven't even.
top of the cia are to flush the hose join me here in this to discuss this further here we go again the threat of impeachment it's double trouble really since day since he took over in the oval office it's back on the table yes cities and now these new allegations will be added to what the 6 house committees are already investigating about trump and if they did issue a committee decides that this time there is evidence enough there is reason enough for an impeachment they will be at the democrat controlled house of representatives and democrats a known for supporting an impeachment african this idea so they are strongly in favor of it so we can say that it is highly likely that donald trump will be impeached but you have to remember that impeaching the president does not mean removing the president from the office for that the senate holds a special trial to convict or acquit the president and. 2 thirds
majority is needed for this to be done and we know that the senate is currently controlled by the republicans. that they will go against trump but even before that like send majority leader could just refuse to have a trial an interesting fact is that in the u.s. history only 2 presidents have been peached one resigned under preachment. threats and no one has been actually moved from office so the future is uncertain it's too early to say but is this happening what's the recent case we're talking about here well the recent case is in fact about the interim allegedly doing some shady things with a leader of another country there is a classified complaint from an intelligence community whistleblower we do not know who is he more of the details are known but it is about a phone call donald trump had with the leader in july and the elected leader in
that conversation donald trump. pushed vladimir selenski to investigate former vice president joe biden and a was happening at the time the donald trump administration was withholding $250000000.00 in a military aid for ukraine earlier approved by congress and this is why we hear from the politicians from experts and some journalists. as trump threatened to ukraine to hold these. funds a bag unless the dig up some dirt on his political opponent what we have here we've got we've got joe biden who may be going up against him in 2020 for the white host joe biden. and ukraine right yes there are there are there is too much involved in this story and you have to understand how to connect all these dots well trump claims that when joe biden was vice president he pressured ukraine
to fire their top prosecutor because that gentleman was investigating a ukrainian kompany that biden's son was a board member off of course if this is the case this is a power abuse case but at this point these are just claims. what kind of reaction because we always get a reaction when impeachment is called for what are we seeing well the reaction from the tramp is quite clear and predictable he denied all the allegations he acknowledged all of that there was a phone call between he and wife mr lensky that he mentioned that joe biden and his son hunter were discussed and they was alleged corruption case they brought up as well during that conversation but he described that phone call as a perfect call and a very appropriate one he also admitted blocking a funds for ukraine but he explained that by theories that europe was not participating and actually later
a was an freezed the reaction from the republicans and democrats is also quite predictable no one looked surprised but in their own way let's take a look. the president does not comply with such requests from the congress he continues to obstruct congress and flaunt the law. on trial for leave congress in my view no choice but to shooting fish in particular incidents shows that the president clearly thinks he's above the law now he's admitted to using his office to snow the country to 2020 i fully support the impeachment inquiry 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 house democrats have got impeachment fever and the only cure is going to be reelected the
president in the 2020 alexion they want to continue this which are trying to teach the president because they don't agree with the results of the 2016 election well they can see this is a very complicated case allegations are very strong but i think this is very important not to fall into any like speculation mode until at least we see the transcript of that phone conversation between trump and like him is i'm asking and we know that the american leader agreed to do that all right thanks for bring us right up to date for. that just distill aspect of this story ukraine's president. responds when asked whether he was pressured by donald trump to investigate joe biden. and then when the new film was a decision to do business. now many. of us need to go on the mend and. meet senior obama she's talking. we heard more from former u.s. diplomat jim just political commentator john william. i don't think the
republicans in the senate would have just called for something and taken a hostile position to the president i mean look i held office 14 years i've had these conversations there were is was definitely a back channel discussions they're not going to do something to embarrass the president especially something that that is so groundbreaking is that we don't have whistleblowers that were listening in on conversations that the president made with foreign leaders they just released that those discussions that is that is unprecedented least in my political life time i've never seen that kind of pressure we have what's called you know separation of powers congress has their powers the president has his powers the courts have their powers and to force the president to release a private discussion. and i understand the president is supposed to have some
latitude to negotiate with people these are negotiating discussions they don't have the force of law but i think they realize that unless they basically make as much disclosure as possible they're going to have even more problems with some of the republicans and that 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 and 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 tribes 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 on here is that there was no quid pro quo yeah but
you sought the help of a foreign government that should be. to get rid of you. go to another story i want to bring you today the arrest of a u.s. soldier over his alleged plans to bomb a news network has exposed the wider plot he allegedly also plan to travel to ukraine to fight alongside the infamous ultra nationalist a solve battalion with more of what we know here sorties double quarter. planning a terror attack preparing to murder and tea for members 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 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 of battalion 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 release of anti russian. dominated the united states floor 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 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 will have almost everyone in. politicians and journalists around the world are still picking over the speech of 16 year old climate activists gratitude in berg at the u.n. climate summit while she's been widely praised for her impassioned address there are those who say she's leaving out. it for the younger generation right because the it has been looking up a thin line between activism and fanaticism. the thing with climate change is it's called delegated 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 the conics plain and wound 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 but the 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 for 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 eva.
with all in and why because this is an emergency our house is on the cyan faith is for everyone the rich and 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 thousands of european children joined up to liberate the holy land of course none of them got that 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 willage it there are a 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 dead now and climate change deniers a dirty trashy folk the sort who are going to roast in the hell where the 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 overthe called going through to you we in the
media we want to save your soul and if you already take my hand we're going to church well online church just open your internet browser and go to n.b.c. dot com confess their confess my children confess you a sins cleanse your polluted souls seriously they've got a climate confessions page that tell me this isn't a full blown religion. the battle over gender stereotypes is being taken to french toy shops we talk cars and balls off to the brain.
they have ideas to win. hello again donald trump took to the podium at the u.n. general assembly choose they to make the case for his america 1st strategy to world leaders but instead of the charge speech some were expecting it was rather. dress that drew a wave of mockery on life. 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. 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 the future belongs to patriots mr speech left many wondering to his usual delivery during public appearances with the scribes. and.
the us with. this is the book i was reading was only trunk was insulting to the general assembly xenophobic and paralyzed the school. 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 haven't heard in my life world leaders have now started reading books instead of listening to president trump speech at the u.n.
general assembly. and also just to note the leaders of ukraine are run are expected to be among the speakers on day 2 of the 74th general assembly debates we have been closely following their remarks. from sounds a new target in the battle against sexism children's toys ministers are making moves to mix things up so that manufacturers and retailers don't automatically push dolls for girls on cars for boys and your agreement signed between the french government on toy makers hopes to attract more girls toward science and math it also suggests that money fractures advertisers and stores should remove certain color schemes labeling the aim they say is to broaden children's imaginations so that they're not influenced by stereotypes as they grow up we're all looking to
work in the creation of 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. well from being seen as a welcome move of broadening young minds to claims of gender engineering here's how the guidelines when done we discussed that earlier. it's really good because they want to put an end to gender toys 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 girls again they can play with adult all and then they can play with other stuff are related to too in a computer science maybe in math or other things that actually will be incentive to women to truth are the subjects in the university a psychology professor in cambridge university simon baron cohen has shown that as
early as 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 but by by forcing boys to play with dolls and and girls play with trucks is is an absolute it's ludicrous. ok moving on now economists from $168.00 countries are here in moscow putting their heads together to thrash out their world's financial headaches on the sidelines former russian finance minister and our head of the audit chamber alexey cruder and gave us his exclusive insight the russian economy is coping. why do you suppose that would a person who would i hope if there isn't a crisis will have growth of one percent or a bit more this year yes this is
a small number and when we have the same one for years you can call it stagnation unfortunately the experts all cost situation close to stagnation the price of oil has been crucial for russia for many years and when the price falls abruptly it usually slows the growth rate and even reduces g.d.p. talking about a cut of price the lowest cost limit income over it goes to the state reserve fund in 2004 the price was $20.00 per barrel near 2008 it rose to $80.00 after the economic crisis we couldn't reduce or we even reach $100.00 per barrel so we needed to be that price to spend the budget properly so it was correct to lower the price to more reasonable levels and be less dependent after finance ministry as well as the government managed to do that is the correct way the question only is
how fast we should do it and when to stop about 34 years ago the cut of price was more than $80.00 now it is 40 but that also means we need to spend less money so nowadays we have a budget deficit or medical care the education sector and roads so i suggested not to make the reduction of the price so harsh for the next 6 years to cut the price not to $40.00 but to $45.00 instead of course the oil price can fall even below $40.00 per barrel but we have a reserve for this in 200820154 all price was below $40.00 but only for a few months so i wouldn't be concerned that such a price can remain for a longer our goal for the next 6 years he's to cut the price more smoothly. midweek. with all the help to the minute. great
