no problem to be fixed. welcome to the weekly here on r t international where we bring you the latest headline news and the top stories from the past week. and the biggest news from the past 7 days there's been a sense of triumph among us democrats after an official impeachment inquiry was launched into president trump on tuesday this latest chapter has been brought about by his allege attempts to undermine a key democratic rival in the 2028 presidential race and it claims trump leaned on ukraine's president to investigate joe biden son's activities in the country and exchange for u.s. support of art style of takes a look at the democrats' obsession with impeachment. democrats have 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 are coming off. the walls are closing in on president trump the walls are closing it will 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 donald trump 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 reveal its 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 so you could 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 counterpart 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 i looked as i'm really 6 hours if the prosecutor is not fired you're not getting the money well 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 we'll work on the investigation of the case i would kindly ask if you have any additional information that you can provide to us it 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 occupant occupant of the oval office poses a clear and present danger to our future to our democracy is in danger to us all 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 we saw 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 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 protests including in canada where thousands took to the streets in cities across the country among those taking part in the rally in montreal for the canadian prime minister and teen activist kind of fun part at a meeting between the 2 she urged just intrade out to do more to save the planet on monday delivered an impassioned address to the un climate action summit a swedish campaigner rebuked world leaders for failing to tackle the destruction of the biosphere. you have. still in my dreams and my childhood with your empty words and yet i'm one of the documents. people are suffering people are dying entire eco systems are collapsing we are in the beginning of a mass extinction and all you can talk about is money and fairy tales of eternal economic growth how dare you. all she's been widely praised for her impassioned address
there are those who say she's leaving a cult for the younger generation y. garcia looks at the thin line between activism and fanaticism. the thing with climate change is it's called deligated 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 that illness sara lee understand caught explain and boom 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 and worthy polluted souls save us from judgment
day and as with any faith they have a prophet that you need a college. 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 the him and why because this is an emergency our house is on 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 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're a denial and climate change deniers a dirty trashy folk the sort who are going to run. stay 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 over i've gotten 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 has open your internet browser and go to n.b.c. dot com confess there confess my children confess us sins cleanse your polluted souls seriously they've got
a climate confessions page now tell me this isn't the full blown religion. but fun bar dividing opinion some say she's being used as a political tool especially by the media. a 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 of civilization and a adult mocking a kid is not the kind of thing that should be cheered it's the kind of thing that should be condemned with you republican democrat green independent whatever you want to get out of politics. just stir being by will video shows
a moderate to make america great again not stop harassing or no defend merican out there in washington disturbing viral video has sparked outrage to work having to catholic school a troubling incident at the foot of the lincoln memorial. with all of the news and like you guys truly you guys could just search and social media before reporting this for the simple search the search you would have followed all or you would 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 were there they have a they had a permit to protest and they with the protests were just moving through and then being counted these 2 groups fighting in there like we're just going to go in and play our drums and try and get everyone you know defuse the situation and then they become the situation. like a man. again but this time film washington d.c.
. those who really. are just because this is a clue. pretty safe to come back. everybody who had thrust gretta thunder 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 to prop it 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 based on her age but they're the ones that promoted her because of her age in
the 1st place. children's toys were in the crosshairs today as the french government signed an agreement to combat gender stereotypes trying to ensure makers and sellers don't automatically push dolls for girls and cars for board a new directive seeks to attract more girls towards science activities stating that gender divisions in stores are a thing of the past and should be scrapped before christmas they say is 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 the tone and also how they are represented in advertisement and the way they're assault fighting discrimination later on because right from the very 1st days well some are welcoming the move others claim it is a form of gender engineering here's what are just 7 the matter. it's really good because they want to put an end to gender and the toys they want to give the
freedom to children to choose whatever they want to so we're not forcing boyce or play with dolls if they don't want to of course and again they can play with adult all and then they can play with other stuff are related to to in a computer science maybe other things that actually will be an incentive to women to truths of 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 change society by but by by forcing boys to play with dolls and 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. still to come
oscar is voting in a snap parliamentary election with the country's former chancellor hoping to make a political comeback after a scandal that led to the collapse of his government that and more after this break . you know world big partners. 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 smart we need to stop slamming the door. and 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 we're watching closely watching the hawks.
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 is also a scary dramatic development the only really i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time time to sit down and talk. welcome back people in austria are casting their votes and they've now parliamentary election the country has been ruled by a caretaker government for months after a political scandal brought down the conservative coalition in may the main contenders are ex chancellor sebastian presents austrian people's party on the
right and 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 and will therefore have to enter into coalition talks with other parties possible kingmakers include the right wing austrian freedom party and the green party purse has already cast his ballot speaking to journalists after. we are very confident we have a clear it's going to come out on top in this election we want to get a positive result in our q lection targets is that there's no majority against us we fought for that in the last weeks and months i'm grateful to those who supported us and i am like all the other candidates no doubt anxiously awaiting the results of the previous government with curtis at the helm fell in late may after a vote of no confidence that was triggered by an exposé showing presence coalition partner offering politico. favors to a wealthy woman claiming to be from russia in exchange for donations for his
election campaign the instant became known as the visa fair as the video was shot on the island ahead of today's vote we gauge people's expectations in the streets of yeah. i think the worst outcome would be if everything stayed the same as it is and if the coalition went on like this and we were confronted with some point you know i am excited about the race for the 2nd place who will be in the 2nd place position if in 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 want to be for happened it was kind of a relief like somebody pressed a stop button. hardman got a professor of political science at the university of innsbruck told us there's a good chance of her as well managed to resurrect his old coalition despite the scandal. i think that sebastian coe is peace taking the lead in the polls he's leading by about 12 percent 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 to form a new government which most likely will have to be a coalition government because of all the criticism about his previous coalition if the far right freedom party the 1st try to enter into negotiations with other parties particularly green sea however i don't think that build the coalition between these 2 parties because there's a great deal of difference particularly on migration and direction to policies between could says people's party into green polity so what you might see sebastian could steer into the far right freedom party to reach the installed look like blue coalition of the far right and the conservative party. tensions have been flaring once again in hong kong just behind me you can see live pictures from the city where protesters mark the 5th anniversary of the umbrella protest pro-democracy movement.
large groups of demonstrators unhappy with the city as communist party rulers in beijing blocked roads and caused damage to buildings on saturday with police to point to or gas and pouring blue dye on protesters so they can later identify and arrest them for their protests are planned ahead of the 70th anniversary of the people's republic of china on tuesday into a continuing more than 3 months of unrest. it's been a tough 7 days for u.k. prime minister boris johnson and next week could be even worse support for a no confidence vote is gaining momentum among opposition m.p.'s who now see no other way of avoiding a no deal breakfast it earlier this week and he has returned to westminster after the u.k.'s supreme court ruled that johnson suspension of parliament had been a lawful. the prime minister's attempt to suspend parliament was widely seen as a ploy to evade scrutiny of his choice of plans the 1st session back saw some heated exchanges. i think you were.
willing to let sorry the people you say are the prime minister should have done the owner will sing and resign thank god this government stands in shape tendering you legal advice to a monarch and not even able to uphold the most basic but most important of principles abiding by the rule of the peace say that we couldn't if you like to go procure you should try shy child the child was the time i got to because i'm going over my right you have to be like this i don't really go like this this prime minister to talk about you know our i know right you like this right. the pm has been adamant that he's prepared to take the u.k. out of the e.u. with or without a deal by the october 31st deadline however at the start of september parliament
passed a law designed to stop a no deal exit we spoke to a lecturer in international politics who says leaders are tired of the whole box that ordeal. they can send the letter to brussels and say we would like an extension and the government is already implied that it will send a 2nd letter full of reasons why the europeans shouldn't grant the extension because it's not an automatic process just because we ask for it doesn't mean we get it and the europeans especially the french seem to be running out of patience with the united kingdom there's been no alternative put forward this is what the europeans are so frustrated about nothing on paper that is feasible has been for put forward as to what another extension will achieve it's anyone's guess it does take no deal imminently off the table and that would be damaging for the country but it just kicks the can down the road more delay more drama and the people seem to be getting a little tired of this faffing around that's a recap of just some of the stories that help shape the world these last 7 days thanks for tuning it.
