should be fixed. in watching the weekly here on our to recap of the biggest stories from the past 7 days you should joining us this hour. and the biggest news from this week there's been a sense of triumph among us democrats after an official impeachment inquiry was launched in a president trump on tuesday this latest chapter has been brought about by his alleged attempts to undermine a key democratic rival in the 2020 presidential race amid claims trump leaned on ukraine's president to investigate joe biden son's activities in the country and exchange for u.s. support for key of course all of takes a look at the democrats' obsession with impeachment. democrats have always seen impeachment as donald trump's kryptonite a swift and affective way of ending his political life and they've been. armisen to
pull that switch since he got in office the walls feel like they're closing in on the truth in this ration right now and i'm not sure the figures 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 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 reveal which just sound more 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 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 senior might have blackmailed the previous ukrainian administration into closing a corruption invest. geisha into
a gas company his son had an executive role that i so you know i get the 1000000000 i would be leaving here i think it was about 6 hours or longer as it really is 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 palosi 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 son that biden stop the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you could 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 move 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 interpret it 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 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 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 product the impeachment will follow 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

a native american announcer in washington a disturbing viral video has sparked outrage story catholic school a troubling incident at the foot of the lincoln memorial. with all of the news and like you guys surely 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 israelites or whatever shouting things at the kids and 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 would the protests were just moving through and then they encountered 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 defuse the situation and then they become the situation. like a man. again but this time film washington d.c. .
those who remain out there are defending that 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 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 tuesday as the french
government signed an agreement to combat gender stereotypes trying to ensure toy makers and sellers don't automatically push dolls for girls and cars for boys the new directive seeks to attract more girls towards assigned activities stating that gender divisions in stores are a thing of the past and should be scrapped before christmas the aim 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 eto'o 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 all some are welcoming the move others claim it's a form of gender engineering here's what our guests had to say on the matter. 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 girls again they can play with adult all and then they can play with other stuff related to 2 in a computer science maybe math or 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 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 that 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 bills and boys are different men and women are difference and there is no problem to be fixed. tensions have

welcome back to the weekly people in austria are currently casting their votes at me 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 chancellor sebastian austrian people's party on the right and the social democratic party on the left with most projections putting the conservatives in the lead over the winner is unlikely to get the majority needed to form a government will therefore have to enter into coalition talks with other parties possible kingmakers and with the right wing austrian freedom party and the green party has already cast his ballot briefly speaking to journalists afterwards. we
are very comfortable we have a clear targets and we're going to come out on top in this election we want to get a positive result it's not 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 this and i am like all the other candidates no doubt anxiously awaiting the results of. the previous government with kurz at the home fell in late may after a vote of no confidence that was triggered by an exposé showing curses coalition partner offering political favors to a wealthy woman claiming to be from russia in exchange for donations for his election campaign the incident became known as the affair as the video was shot on the island you're hardman got a professor of political science at the university of innsbruck told us there's a good chance we'll manage to resurrect his old coalition despite the scandal. i think that sebastian could be staking a lead in the polls he's leading by about 2 percent just to social democrats so
evil be declared in their oath today snap elections and evil be given their rights by the federal. isn't to form a new government which most likely be left to be a coalition government because of all the criticism about whose previous coalition is to far right trita parsi the 1st try to enter into negotiations with other parties particularly the greens however i don't think to build the coalition between these 2 parties because there's a great deal of difference particularly on migration and policies between could says people sposi into green polity so what you might see could steer into the far right freedom party to reinstill look like blue coalition of the far right and to conservative policy. to russia now where an authorized demonstration is currently taking place here and moscow participants are rallying in support of those detained during unsanctioned protests in july and august large crowds have gathered in rainy
