problem to be fixed. this is the weekly here on r t welcome to round up of the headlines that shape the last 7 days. in the biggest news from this week 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 alleged attempts to undermine a key democratic rival in the 2020 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 for key parties a guest on 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 truth of this racial right now and i'm not sure they could hold them off for much longer than 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 for they've 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
and 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 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 bill you
know i will be leaving here i think it was about 6 hours or longer is there really are 6 hours 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 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 will 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 and this this occupant 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 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 '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 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 activists credit card a meeting between the 2 she urged justin trudeau to do more to save the planet on monday delivered an impassioned address to the un climate action summit this week campaigner rebuked world leaders for failing to tackle the destruction of the biosphere. you have still in my. dreams in my childhood with your empty words and yet i'm one of the documents. people are suffering people are dying entire school systems are collapsing we are in the beginning of a mass extinction and all you can talk about is the money and fairy tales of eternal economic growth how did you. all she's been widely praised for her speech there are those who say she's leaving a cult for the younger generation or 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 i don't miss sara lee and the
stand khan 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 i'm again 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 either. with the him 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 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 paid my hand we're going to church well online church to open your internet browser and go to n.b.c. dot com confess their 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 wittenberg dividing opinion some say she's being used as a political tool especially by the media. 8 adult male who is 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 the civilization and they don't 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 rove video shows a moderate to make america great again not stuck around saying i needed to american out there in washington
a disturbing viral video has sparked outrage shortcomings in catholic school a troubling incident at the foot of the lincoln memorial. because the news i'm like you guys surely you guys are going to social social media before reporting this for the simple search the search you would follow little or you would have seen this crazy fringe group that is right so whatever shouting things at 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 like that they had a permit to protest and they would the protests were just moving through and then being counted 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. i'm.
going to sing them for those who ran the outfit i mean the art of that because. there. 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 on tuesday as the
french government signed an agreement to combat gender stereotypes trying to ensure a toy makers and sellers don't automatically push dolls for girls and cars for boys the new directive seeks to attract more girls towards scientific activities stating that gender divisions in stores are a thing of the past and should be scrapped before christmas they may 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 well some are welcoming the move others claim its form of gender engineering here's what our guests have to say on 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 boys to 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 you know computer science maybe other things that actually will be an incentive to women to choose of the subjects in the university a psychology professor in cambridge university simon 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 and girls play with trucks is is an absolute it's ludicrous bills and boys are different men and women are difference and there is no problem to be fixed. people in austria are currently casting their vote and i snapped 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 about incursions austrians 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 coalition talks with other parties hostile kingmakers include the right wing austrian freedom party and the greens kurds as well as main rival pimlott randy wagner from the social democrats have already cast their ballots briefly speaking to journalists afterwards. we think we are very confident that we have a clear targets and that is to come out on top in this election year we want to get a positive result in our kill action 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 have supported us and i am like all the other candidates no doubt anxiously awaiting the results. like this and today is an important day just like any other election day
but particularly so because the austrians now have the power to prevent the continuation of the black and blue coalition in austria i hope that as many people as possible use their voting right today and that the turnout is high them and we have led a good and positive campaign with a lot of topics solution proposals and concrete ideas for australia's future yeah it was a very good campaign. the previous government with kurz at the helm fell in late may after a vote of no confidence that was triggered by an exposé showing person's 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 erhard a man got a professor of political science at astor as university and told us there's a good chance kurds will manage to resurrect his old coalition despite the scandal . i think that sebastian could be staking out
a lead in the polls he's leading by about 12 percent of the social democrats so evil be declared in their of today's elections and evil 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 lives to far right trade and party 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 direction to policies between could says people's party into green polity so what you might see is sebastian could turn to the far right freedom party to reach the installed look like blue coalition of the far right and the conservative party. to russia now where an authorized demonstration is currently taking place here and rainy conditions in moscow police say are around $20000.00 people have gathered so
far peacefully our correspondent maria national joins us now from the heart of the demonstrations tell us what's going on where you are. how he laid to you from central moscow you safra avenue that has become kind of symbol of the protest movement here in the russian capital people have gathered here if we get another opposition rally these time only gold card united with the cities of summer. yet another one i say because almost every weekend since late july thousands of people have joined also rice as well as on also raw east opposition rallies following their rejection of some opposition candidates to run in to see the most. elections and some of these gatherings have ended up with troubles with police hundreds of people have been detained some of them have been later released but others have been sentenced to up to 4 years in prison are there is still being prosecuted so you. may need to demand all of today's rally is to
