you're watching the weekly here on our to recap of the biggest stories from the past 7 days thanks for 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 into president trump 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 in exchange for u.s. support for key. takes a look. 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 but the walls feel like they're closing
in on the truth in this racial 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 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 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 senior might add. i 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 is it really 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 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 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 i 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 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 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 across the country among those taking part in the rally in montreal
where the canadian prime minister and teen activist product under a meeting between the 2 urged justin trudeau to do more to save the planet on monday at dunbar 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 might. childhood with your empty words and yet i'm one of the documents. 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 fairy tales of eternal economic growth how did you. 6 all she's been widely praised for her speech there are those who say she's leaving a cult for the younger generation. has more. 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 aren't 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 but lief and something greater something they don't necessarily understand conics plain and wound comprehend like the judeo christian religion and 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 unworthy 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 said to 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 us and why because this is an emergency our house is on society and 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 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 willage it 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 rule. 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. online church just 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 now tell me this isn't a full blown religion but dunbar dividing opinion some say she's being used as a political tool especially by the media.
a 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 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 take it out of politics. disturbing viral video shows a moment to make america great again not some carousing a native american out there in washington disturbing viral video has sparked outrage shortcomings in 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 the story but the simple search to search you would have found it all or you would have seen this crazy fringe group the black 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 with the protests were just moving through and then they encountered 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. . the 1st who ran out i mean. because. they're pretty so. to come back.
everybody who had thrust into the spotlight this 16 year old little girl they were already ready for 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 on 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 toward scientific to vicki's 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 of 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 their assault fighting discrimination later on requires action right from the very 1st days well some are welcoming the move others claim it's a form of gender engineering here's what argus had to say about 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 girl again they can play with adult all and then they can play with other stuff related to 2 in a computer science maybe in math or other things that actually will be and sent it
to a man to troops 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 the 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 girls play with trucks is is an absolute it's ludicrous bills and boys are different men and women a difference and there is no problem to be fixed that weekly continues after this short break.
you throughout the year to play just one game so that this somebody comes and the crazy out of the gate and they don't know what to do with it you know did a business tool used to temporize they could gin you on to the next about each other and just drop is all wood to this side over a leaf because the democrats are disposed towards the islamic republic and so you know maybe try to go back to the old james. quietly give you consistent as i quietly you believe being pressured i'm not. sure 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 the 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 people in austria are casting their votes and ice 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 x. chancellor sebastian carson the 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 possible kingmakers include the right wing offered freedom party and the greens kurz as well as main rival peddler on the wagner from the social democrats have already cast their ballots briefly speaking to journalists afterwards. do you think we are very comfortable. we have
a clear targets and that is to come out on top in this election 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 german incubi we have led a good and positive campaign with a lot of topics solution proposals and concrete ideas for austria's future yeah it was a very good campaign the previous government with sebastian kers at the helm fell in late may after a vote of no confidence that was triggered by an exposé showing this 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 be as fair as the video was shot on the island where hardman got a professor of political science at astor as 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 12 percent of the social democrats so he will be declared in there of today's left 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 it was previous coalition with the far right freedom party the 1st try to enter into negotiations with other parties particularly the greens however i don't think that it did build the coalition between these 2 parties because there's a great deal of difference particularly on migration and direction to policies between good says people's party. green polity so what you might see sebastian
could steer into the far right freedom party to reach the install look like blue coalition of the far right and the conservative party. to russia now where an authorised demonstration is taking place here and raining conditions in moscow police say 20000 people have gathered so far peacefully artie's marias national reports from the heart of the demonstrations. if abbie knew 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 a legal a card in a to do with the city's authorities yet another one i say because almost every weekend since late july thousands of people have joined all the rise as well as on authorized opposition rallies following now the rejection of some opposition candidates to iran in the city and the most. elections in some of these gatherings have ended up with troubles with police as a result 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 mainly for violence against police others is still being prosecuted over the same charges so today's event is mainly about demanding the release of these jailed protest is that their use who have gathered here to die hall of political prisoners. that's a breakdown of just some of the biggest headlines from the past week thanks for tuning in. 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 faithfully implement from the inside venezuela things were different we're
going to announce sanctions against the truest of venezuela so if you're. in a school that have a supplement to. the tempest in fact the political battle to stay on the path to come at the moment the focus the who story is a new mix of old in henry kissinger to tell him that he would not be tolerated that in latin america. an alternative economic and social system could take hold and therefore the policy would be to make. the chilean economy scream so wants to make the economy of venezuela screed. you know world big part of. life and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that made stream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door on the path 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 for watching closely watching the hawks. around them to follow and then comes out of the cold war you are the set up one among them. a fine after 90 they tell you nasty hi i'm nice and i meet her. at the salon months in front of the sensor on. some totally and with an image shut the lock of the.
and then that it is someone only did the board. in 2040 no bloody revolution here to correct the demonstrations going from being relatively peaceful political protests to be creasing the violent revolution is always spontaneous or is it still war here but i mean your list put video through to me in the new bill is that i knew scrolling needed a little before the ukrainian president recalls the events of 2014. of those who took. it invested over $5000000000.00 to assist ukraine in these and other goals that will ensure. a secure and prosperous and democratic.
poland welcome to worlds a part of the big hopes for the u.s. a rainy and summit on the sidelines of the un general assembly deflated asked promptly as they appeared giving way to the carnival of the preachment proceedings against president trump but while this board life has now moved to washington d.c. curity situation in the gulf remains perilous and open to manipulation is it likely to get even worst now the trumps attention is diverted elsewhere well to discuss that i'm now joined by i'm at the haiti and iranian writer and the chairman of the
gates still an institute in europe mr to hear it's 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 of the general assembly earlier this week he seemed rather angry and some observers said the time interpreted that as he's frustration of a day rainy and 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 he is it rainy and policy well i don't know it's. method of puta speculation but what is important is that iran and the united states have 2 sets of problems bilateral problems that go back 40 years and multilateral problems that need attention so the mood in washington the
problems of the present trump may have some nuances in as far as if u.s. is concerned on u.s. policy but the longer run or this strategy. u.s. policy towards you know in the form of joe who is not making any public reluctant i think at the very least we can say that both iran and perhaps saudi arabia are following the u.s. as political developments on both countries that calibrating them 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 at this point that the iranians definitely want trump out and the saudis definitely want trump in well i don't know what this hour it is by 2 a.
