going to run the cities across the globe you can do mock you then they will join you. us democrats kick into impeachment mode with an official probe launched into president trump for the basis for it all relies on a single whistleblower with a 2nd chance knowledge of the events. austria's former chancellor who lost his state in a scandal is projected to make a comeback in the country's upcoming election. and france goes to war on gender stereotypes with a new directive aimed at children's toys but the decision has activist song doing about the choice and. they want to give the freedom to children to choose whatever they want to girls and boys are different men and women are different and that is no problem to be fixed also the pentagon plans for
a generation of genetically modified soldiers immune to chemical and biological attacks wellston americans what they think. i think i think god created them is enough good enough for me. cause there's got to be consequences to that the most outrageous thing i've ever heard. very well welcome to you watching the weekly here on r.t. international with all the latest world news and a roundup of the stories that shape the week but 1st in the biggest news from this week there's been a sense of triumph among us democrats and it's off to an official impeachment inquiry was launched into president trump on choose day and this latest chapter brought about by his alleged attempts to undermine a key democratic rival in the 2020 presidential race and make claims trump leaned on ukraine is president to investigate joe biden's son. activities in the country
in exchange for u.s. support for kids have done enough takes a look at the democrats' obsession with impeachment. democrats of always seen impeachment as donald trump's kryptonite a swift and effective way of ending his political life and they've been promising to pull that switch since he got in office the walls feel like they're closing in on the tradition right now and i'm not sure they could hold them off for much longer the walls are closing in and everyone is freaking out the walls are closing the wheels coming off. the walls are closing in on president trump the walls are closing it was trouble the walls are closing in on the trump white house. all of the walls are closing in at this point the walls are closing in fast and on 3 talked about it so much in fact it almost became too much some would have been forgiven for thinking it was all bark and no bite yet this week to the surprise of
some and delight of others house speaker nancy pelosi announced that they're pushing the red button 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 i'm announcing the house of representatives moving forward with an official impeachment inquiry the launching of the inquiry signals the very start of the proceedings that could eventually end up with impeachment and even trump losing office so what was that thing that was convincing enough for the democrats to finally buckle up take a deep breath and say. an anonymous whistleblower sounded an alarm with the national intelligence over donald trump's conversation with the ukrainian president . during the conversation trump suggested that his. on to part investigate his most
likely rival in the 2020 election joe biden and his son hunter over their business in ukraine apparently as vice president at the time biden sr might have blackmailed the previous ukrainian administration into closing a corruption investigation into a gas company his son had an executive role that i so you know i get the 1000000000 i will be leaving here i think it was about 6 hours or longer isn't really 6 hours and if the prosecutor is not fired you're not getting the money or son of a. you're fired trump seems to be in all sorts of trouble following pelosi is announcement is openly accused of extortion as well as of asking a foreign state to meddle in america's presidential election sounds familiar nobody knows for sure though what exactly trump's words were but the democrats put all their trust in that whistleblower expecting a bombshell collusion story and then trump releases the transcript there's
a lot of talk about biden's son that biden stop the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do would be great biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it it sounds horrible to me. the issue of the investigation of the case is actually the issue of making sure to restore the honesty so we will take care of that and work on the investigation of the case i would kindly ask if you have any additional information that you can provide to us we would be very helpful from the investigation no matter what side you're on that was hardly a bombshell a firecracker a best it gets rough for both camps the transcripts not word for word but rather a recollection of events by witnesses it's vague to the point of a rorschach test anyone can interpreted the way they want to and so they do like any mafia boss the president didn't need to say that's
a nice country you have it be a shame if something happened to it because that was clear from the conversation there is no quid pro quo necessary to betray your country or your oath of office even though many read this as a quid pro quo i'm not concerned whether it is a quid pro quo or not now every side's got a lot at stake in this game but it's the democrats who have gone all in there's no way back and normal chips in the bank the impeachment bazooka can fire only one round so they apply the whole arsenal of political stunts in this video for instance democrat adam schiff is giving a monster clause in reading between the lines in the transcript that everyone's seen want you to make up dirt on my political potent understand lots of it. on this and on that and by the way don't call me again i'll call you when you've done what i asked and sure enough there was no way in hell hillary clinton the person with the biggest bone to pick with trump could have remained
a bystander in this this argument occupant of the oval office poses a clear and present danger to our future to our democracy he's endangered by putting his personal and political interests ahead of the interests of the american people as for the woman who announced the impeachment in the 1st place she seemed keen to invoke the memory of the russia saga and the hysteria that went with it as it was with the russian interference and by the way i think russia has a hand in this by the way democrats have backed themselves into a corner and the impeachment will fall as of now is a make or break situation the democrats are desperate. they are terrified of losing the election joe biden. is a disaster as a candidate if if he is the nominee he will i'm almost certain he will lose to trump and the democrats are hoping to bring trump down through this whole
impeachment process this idea of. finding a scandal and running around hysterically where 'd there really is no criminal offense so they're hoping to bring trump down but i just can't imagine it will work . this week saw a fresh wave of global climate protest think looting in canada where thousands took to the streets in cities across the country among those taking part in the rally in montreal where the canadian prime minister and teen activists question. it's a meeting between the 2 justin trudeau to do more to say the planet's on monday delivered an impassioned address to the un climate action summit this week his campaign a rebuke twilit leaders for failing to tackle the destruction of the biosphere. you have stolen my dreams my childhood with your empty words and yet i'm one of the jocks once. people are suffering people are dying
entire ecosystems are collapsing we are in the beginning of a mass extinction and all you can talk about is the money and fairytales of each term economic growth how dare you. from both those scowled and donald trump when they almost crossed paths but the u.s. president paid their attention to the headline grabbing climate activist she then left the room accompanied by security guards or trunk went to attend a meeting on religious freedom. with a member dividing opinions some say she is being used as a political tool especially by the media. 8 adult male who's the president of united states broadcast a mocking tweet to 60 plus 1000000 followers mocking a 16 year old this isn't about politics is about common decency this is about what
we want to be as a society that civilization and they don't mock a kid it's not the kind of thing that should be cheered it's the kind of thing that should be condemned would you republican democrat agree independent whatever you want to get out of politics. discourage being by world video shows him over to make america great again or not harassing or needed to merican out of there in a disturbing viral video has sparked outrage for having been catholic high school a troubling incident at the foot of the lincoln memorial. with all of the news i'm like you got a tree you guys are going to search and social media before reporting this for the simple sort of circular follicle or you have seen this crazy fringe group that is
right so whatever shouting the things that the kids i mean you see the kids responding with a chance you know and then you see the native american elders who are there they have a group like that they had a permit to protest and they would do protest which is moving through and then being tolerant of these 2 groups fighting and they were like we're just going to go in and play our drums and try and get everyone you know to diffuse the situation and then they become the situation. like. this film watching b.p. . and. those who really. are just because. pretty soon you come back. everybody who had thrust into the spotlight this 16 year old little girl they were already ready 1st criticism on her because she was speaking about such an important
political issue and so they knew that they knew they could attack anybody who criticized her the problem is that when she has been used by the left rocketed into this political limelight they are already ready to attack anybody and so it's that she's being used as some sort of weaponized human shield for political purposes in order to to defame or to slander anybody who criticizes what she says just because under age but they're the ones that promoted her because of her age in the 1st place. people in austria are casting their votes in a snap parliamentary election the country's been ruled by a caretaker government for months after a political scandal brought down the conservative coalition the main contenders are ex chancellor sebastian kurds is all syrian people's party on the right on the social democratic party on the left with most projections putting the conservatives in the lead however the winner is unlikely to get the majority needed to form a government i will therefore have to enter into coalition talks with other parties
possible kingmakers include the right wing austrian freedom party and the green party the previous governments with sebastien kurds at the helm fell in late may after a vote of no confidence this was triggered by an exposé showing its coalition partners offering political favors to a wealthy woman claiming to be from russia in exchange for donations for his election campaign is that it became known as the affair as the video was shot on the island the head of today's vote we gauge people's expectations in the streets of vienna. which i think the worst outcome would be. the same as it is and of the coalition went on and we. we were confronted with. some point i am excited about the race for the 2nd place it will be end up in the 2nd place position for the past one and a half years under the black and blue has already been a shock and you have the feeling that the country is going completely in the wrong
direction and when you beat the happened it was kind of a relief like somebody's pressed a stop button. this up bringing a hard line got professor of political science at innsbruck university welcome to the program it's great to have the weather's do you really think that cuts will indeed make a comeback. absolutely certain about it east staking the lead in the polls he's leading by about 12 percent head of the social democrats so evil be declared in their of today's snap elections and he will be given the right by the federal president and the obligation to form a new government which most likely will have to be a coalition government and who do you think will end up in that coalition. i think that sebastian coup is because all of because of all the criticism about his previous coalition with the far right freedom party the 1st try to enter into negotiations with other parties particularly the greens if it's possible for them to make a maturity in the parliament however i don't think that there will be
a coalition between these 2 parties because there's a great deal of difference particularly on migration and refugee policies between could says people's party into green party so what we might see. between the 2 parties what finally the greens who say no or sebastian courts will say no and then he will turn to the far right freedom party install a coalition. of the far right and the conservative party and there is because it's become something about trends that in other european countries green parties that have been gaining momentum do you think that the austrian green party will fare in this how will they fare in this election. well according to the opinion polls they will get about 12 to 14 percent which is actually a very high number of support they had missed to enter the parliament in the previous elections in 2017 as a surprise to all to many because at that time many people voted for the social
democrats to favor them in their rivalry this sébastien could speak with party but now those green affiliates who had voted for the social democrats 2 years ago will return to the green party and they will make it into parliament and a bill play a prominent role probably in the formation of the future and coalition government. professor of political science at innsbruck university thank you very much for your time thanks for having me thank you we're going to take a quick break now but we'll be back with more news very shortly. throughout the year to play just one game so sudden this somebody comes out and prays another game and they don't know what to do with it you know their best hope
is to temporize to continue on to the next american election if trump is our to the decider of relief because the democrats are better disposed towards the islamic republic so you know maybe we can go back to the old james. quietly give you consistent as i quietly you believe being pressured i'm not. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy on sunday shouldn't let it be an arms race. spearing dramatic development only really i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down and talk.
welcome back and if this sounds like it's straight out of science fiction the pentagon said on monday that it seeking to boost the immunity of u.s. soldiers 2 hoping to protect them against chemical and biological attacks through the use of gene editing but their office is the so-called human upgrades could be weaponized this kind of open explains. this soldier of the future won't just be battle trained and ready to kill they'll be genetically engineered to withstand a biological attack the pentagon has a plan for editing the d.n.a. and creating super soldiers why is defense advanced research projects agency doing this to protect a soldier on the battlefield from chemical weapons and biological weapons by controlling their genome have in the genome produced proteins that would automatically protect the soldier from the inside out so far this sounds a little bit closer to science fiction perhaps
a bit more fantasy than fact he will be the 1st marine. earlier this year a chinese scientist announced that 2 girls were born with edited genomes genomes that were edited to be a child be resistant so with potentially boundless possibilities the question now is what altered genes would a u.s. soldier need probably put some brains in them so they can question the policies they're already that soldiers i think i think how god created them is enough good enough for me are you kidding me no not well i'm asking you that the most outrageous thing i've ever heard you do better fix of d.n.a. could be could be used to live longer. maybe mit be less going on things like waste why why do we use this with soldiers you don't like the idea no i don't
that's sad because there's got to be consequences to the oh i change you know their strength their vision their it's you know anything's the you know anything that would make them a better. soldier asbos but before you let your imagination run too wild remember the u.s. military says there is no need to worry it's all for a good cause all these technologies they were dual use. you can use them for good and you can use them for evil defense advanced research projects agency is about using them for to protect our war fighters these fantasies of the super soldier again that they tie into these fantasies of arsenal i'm just the superhero fantasies. that are being with us for a long time and it relates to any myths of the hero the champion that doesn't mean that some of them might not be be realizable to some extent. but there are many reasons why we should not go in that direction really it's very dangerous you don't
know what kind of. what kind of sex will occur from a genetic change because interacts and often interact in the expected. as well as the fact that our ability to targets. certain so is still far from perfect the potential of genetic engineering should not be underestimated there's a lot that could be done beyond simply fire breathing always on fully weaponized maurier's and keep your eyes out for the genetically modified soldiers of the future unlike g.m.o. foods they may not always be labeled kaleb up and r.t. new york. children's toys were in a cross has to stay as the french government signed an agreement to combat gender stereotypes trying to ensure toy makers and fellas don't automatically push dolls for girls and cars for boys a new directive seeks to attract small girls to hold science activities stating
that gender divisions in stores are a thing of the past and should be scrapped before christmas day and they say is to broaden children's imaginations so they're not influenced by stereotypes if they grow up. we're looking to work on the creation of new toys and also how they're represented in advertisement and the way their assault fighting discrimination later on requires action right from the very 1st days. sun a welcoming the move others claim is a form of agenda engineering here's what our guest said on the matter. 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 girl again they can play with adult all and then they can play without the stuff related to to you know computer science maybe other things so that actually will be an incentive to women to choose all the
subjects in the university a psychology professor in cambridge university someone baron cohen has shown that as early as several days after birth the female babies show an interest in faces whereas male babies typically show an interest in mechanical items so there's some hard wiring that the idea that somehow you can charge society by but by by forcing boys to play with dolls and girls play with trucks. is an absolute it's ludicrous bills and boys are different men and women a difference and there is no problem to be fixed thanks for choosing all to international we're back in 30 minutes with all the latest to think about.
the 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 great only implement inside venezuela things look different we're going to announce sanctions against the troll used to venezuela so soon. in the slip. have a supplemental. that. data to see on. the moment of the whose story it isn't new nixon called in henry kissinger to tell him that it would not be tolerated in latin america an old turn of the economic and social system could take hold and therefore the policy would be to
and about that when you guys e.q.'s will be home in the news i mean that is where that information ball. a lot of you will see slowing your info as it fights about 2 kids each other both sides most schools. but as in the adults to me as if. the. cabinet fuck them days doing the sit. in english they do you think people who simply knew she would include in total. all.
alone while. 2 worlds apart big hopes for the u.s. iranian summit on the sidelines of the un general assembly deflated asked promptly as they appeared giving way to the carnival effect preachment proceedings against president trump but while this board life has now moved to washington d.c. curative situation in the gulf remains perilous and open to manipulation is it likely to get even worse now the trumps attention is diverted elsewhere well to discuss that i'm now joined by i may have to haiti an iranian writer and the chairman of the gates still institute in europe mr to hear us very good to talk to you thank you very much for your time as you're very much now when president trump was delivering his speech at the general assembly earlier this week he seemed
rather angry and some observers said the time interpreted that as his frustration with the iranians i think in hindsight we can now as safely say that it was probably due to the impeachment speculations as unrelated as these 2 things appear to be do you think they may influence one another do you think trumps political dissent difficult it may have any impact on his it rainy and policy well i don't know it's a matter of pure speculation but what is important is that. the united states have 2 sets of problems bilateral problems that go back 40 years and multilateral problems that need attention. the mood in washington the problems of the present trouble may have some nuances in as far as if us is concerned on u.s. policy but the longer on nor does strategy the u.s.
policy towards iran in the form of islamic republic. i think at the very least 3 can say that both iran and perhaps saudi arabia are following the u.s. . political developments both countries that calibrating that moves depending on what they think trumps reaction is going to be all what he is chances of political survival are is it fair to say of this point that the iranians definitely want trump out and the saudis definitely want trump in well i don't know what this out is by by 2 or the iranians but what is important is that the islamic republic you know the islamic revolution in iran has put the united says at the center of its considerations its world view from the beginning you know if you follow you don't do enough is here to see that if any of warning you get off the
media you know the people who speak even ordinary people they talk to many crime medical medica and. recently that is the 12 year old boy and one of the few motown's in iran and centrally iran who was selling american dollars. in fact the leadership of the islamic republic is has made many kind of position for all iranians and they need this in order for the news that he has said several times in order to attract were that tension because if they're not already public it stops being an enemy of the united states know whether he takes any notice of it this is that he says that if we abandon our medicine the stunts really become like pakistan even if you have nuclear weapons no where the ability to misuse them it's just. the harried don't you think that the americans or the trumpet ministration least has aided these.
