no problem to be fixed. if you're watching the weekly here on our team a recap of the biggest stories from the past 7 days thanks for joining us. 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 this latest chapter has been brought about by his alleged 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 for key of our takes a look at the democrats' obsession with impeachment. democrats have always seen impeachment as donald trump's kryptonite a swift and defective 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 in this race 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 walls are closing it with trump on 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 and 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 inquiries 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 when. 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 alexion 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 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 to the prosecutors not fired you not get them early 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'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 until printed 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 isn't a saw 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 sigh 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 where the canadian prime minister and teen activist got a ton bark at a meeting between the 2 she urged justin trudeau to do more to save the planet on monday delivered an impassioned address to the u.n. climate action summit so his campaign or rebuked world leaders for failing to tackle the destruction of the biosphere. us. 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 school 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 6. while she has been widely praised for her speech
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 they don't necessarily understand conics plain and wound 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 to call. gedge acacia 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. the him 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 when thousands of european children joined up to liberate the holy land of course none of them got them many died along the way but come on 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 or. 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 just open your internet browser and go to n.b.c. dot com confess there confess my children confess your sins cleanse your polluted souls seriously they've got
a climate confessions page now tell me this isn't the full blown religion with thunder dividing opinion some say she's being used as a political tool especially by the media. 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 mocking a kid is not the kind of thing that should be cheered is the kind of thing that should be condemned with you republican democrat green independent whatever you want to get out of politics. disturbing by rovio shows that moderate seems to make america great again not
something paralysing are needed to american out there in washington a 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 unlike you got a true us going to social social media before reporting this for the simple sort of circular from little 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 were there they have a like they had a permit to protest and they would the protests were just moving through and then being tolerant of these 2 groups fighting and they were like we're just going to go in and play out drums and try and get everyone you know to diffuse the situation and then they become the situation. again but this film washington d.c. .
those who really. are just because this is a clue. pretty sad to 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 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 for ages but they're the ones that promoted her because of her age in
the 1st place. former chancellor sebastian curses over people party is leading with 37 percent of the vote according to exit polls in austria parliamentary election the country's been ruled by a caretaker government for months after a political scandal brought down the conservative coalition and may. peter all over joins us live now peter so will return to power. almost certainly we're going to see. the austrian chancellor but it will be a little while yet before we know. the exact result or also what the makeup of the government he will undoubtedly lead will be it may well be and more certainly will be the fact that it's going to be a coalition the same coalition is before the vote of no confidence but without the former vice chancellor christine straka who was forced to step down in disgrace. what we will be seeing though is certainly
a dropoff in support for for curtseys expected to lose some of the vote see picked up in the previous round of elections but also let's not just him that losing support on the the conservative and the further right side of the spectrum but also the social democrats on the left in austria they've also not done particularly well in expected to lose quite a bit of support towards the greens both curt's and the social democrats have been putting a brave face on that. we are very confident that we have a clear targets we're going to come out on top in this election yes we want to get a positive result in our killer action targets is that there's no majority against . this and today is an important day just like any other election date but particularly so because the austrians now have the power to prevent the continuation of the black and blue coalition in austria. or the reason that they're having this election is what's now become known as the a
b 3 great video in which former vice chancellor christine star who was seen. saying things that the vice chancellor shouldn't be seen saying or certainly shouldn't be seeing in the 1st place promising potential. influence to somebody on camera that resulted in that vote of no confidence saw this snap election. but as i say it does seem that cooks will definitely be back as chancellor may well be bach is the head of the same coalition but one person who isn't going to be there is the former vice chancellor. peter all over staying across the latest for us thank you. we hear reaction from both supporters and opponents of france's battle against sexist cliches and children's toys after the break.
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 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 the aim they say is to broaden children's imaginations so they're not influenced by stereotypes as they grow up. where looking so worked in the creation of the taller 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 while some welcome the move
others claim it's a form of gender engineering here's what our guests have 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 girls again they can play with adult all and then they can play with other stuff are related to too in a computer science maybe in math or other things that actually will be an incentive to women to truths 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 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 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 different and there is no problem to be fixed. and a move that sounds like it's straight out of science fiction the pentagon said monday that it's seeking to boost the immunity of u.s. soldiers hoping to protect them against chemical and biological attacks the use of gene editing but there are fears that so-called human upgrades could be weaponized as killed martin 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 produce 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. person. 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 good 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 up d.n.a. could be could be used to live longer. maybe mitt be less relying 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. 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 good to protect our war fighters these fantasies of the super soldier again that they tie into these fantasies of personal omnipotence and 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 so 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 they can often interact in unexpected ways . as well as the fact that our ability to targets. that we insert of cells 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 hearty new york. tensions have been flaring once again and hong kong as part as us mark the 5th anniversary of the umbrella pro to marcus a movement. large
groups of demonstrators unhappy with the territories communist party rulers in beijing blocked roads and damaged buildings on saturday officers deployed tear gas and sprayed blue dye on protesters to later identify and arrest them police have warned of further crackdowns on the protesters if the situation is not resolved for the rallies are planned ahead of the 70th anniversary of the people's republic of china on tuesday continuing more than 3 months of unrest. that's a recap of just some of the stories that help shape the world these last 7 days for all the latest and up to the minute reports follow us on twitter or facebook.
