francis as i quietly you believe the impression i must. give us democrats kick into impeachment mode with an official probe launched into president trump the basis for it all relies on a single whistleblower with a 2nd hand knowledge of the events. you have stumbled in my dreams my childhood with your. teenage environmentalist. slamming world leaders over there in action on climate change with the public divided by her activism. france goes to war on gender stereotypes with a new directive aimed at children stories for the decision has activists arguing about choice difference. they want to give the freedom to children to choose whatever they want to girls and boys are different men and women are different and
there is no problem to be fixed. yeah there you are and it is great to have you with us is the we clear on r.t. international. let's start with the biggest news from this past week there's been a sense of triumph among us democrats following an official impeachment inquiry being launched into president donald trump this latest chapter has been brought about by his alleged to undermine a key democratic rival in the 2020 presidential race amid claims trump leaned on ukraine's president to investigate joe biden's son's activities in the country in exchange for u.s. support for gear. darn off 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 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 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 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 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 stopped 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 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 argument 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 it was 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 power the impeachment will follow as of now is a make or break situation. but few sturm across the ukraine conversation saw that is not enough they now say they want to discuss another transcript of his conversations with putin paramount need here is to protect the national security the united states and see whether in the conversations with other world leaders and in particular with putin that the president was also undermining our security in a way that he thought would personally benefit his campaign russia's foreign
ministry spokeswoman marie is a lot of us said decision to publish the gradient transcript changes relations between world leaders and makes it dangerous to negotiate with the united states former cia officer john kiriakou believes that washington's moves could also damage is foreign policy. i think that is a fishing expedition i saw that this morning in the u.s. media and you know we have this thing in the united states called executive privilege where the executive branch of government is allowed to she could up the business to carry out the diplomacy of the united states in private without having to answer to capitol hill the democrats are looking for more information specifically related to russia that they can use to impeach donald trump don't trump will invoke executive privilege and will refuse to turn those documents over that's going to be in the foreign relations of the united states and the relations that we had with other countries if you care if you're
a foreign leader you can't trust the president of the united states to keep a secret then who can you trust and as a result this will damage u.s. foreign policy. this week story 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 a rally in montreal with the canadian prime minister and teen activist credited to work at the meeting between the 2 she urged just in today to do more to save the planet on monday to beg delivered an impassioned address to the un climate action summit the swedish campaign the rebuked world leaders for failing to tackle the destruction of the biosphere. you have stolen my dreams my childhood with your empty words and yet i'm one of the trucks once. people are suffering people are dying entire school systems are collapsing and
we are in the beginning of a mass extinction and what you can talk about is money and fame or tales of eternal economic growth how do you i or she's been widely praised for her speech there are those who say that she's leaving a coat for the younger generation rug as they have looked 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 that feeling that the world is about to end that i'm again is around the corner schooled eschatology and that 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 will of the polluted souls save us from judgment day and as with any faith they have a prophet that you need a college. education 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 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 are a denial and climate change deniers a dirty trashy folk the sort who are going to rule. 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 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. well with to 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 leads one to as a society that civilization and they don't mock a kid is not the kind of thing that should be cheered is the kind of thing that
should be condemned would you republican or democrat green independent whatever you want to get out of politics. disturbing by rovio shows that moderate seems to make america great again not some carousing i needed to american out of 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 unlike you got a true u.s. code to search the social media before reporting this for the simple search to search you would follow little 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 job they had a permit to protest and they would be approachable just moving through and then
being tolerant of these 2 groups fighting in there like we're just going to go in and play on drums and try and get everyone you know to diffuse the situation and then they become the situation. like. this film washington d.c. . those who really. are just because. pretty safe 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 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. exit polls have revealed who is leading in the election which was called in the wake of the nation scandal we'll tell you after this short break. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy. 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 time to sit down
and talk. you know world of big partisan law and conspiracies 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 smart we need to stop slamming the door on the bad 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.
formalised chance for us to the courts is over the party is leading with 37 percent of the vote that's according to exit polls in austria snap election the country's been ruled by a caretaker government for months after the nation's scandal brought down the conservative coalition in may with the full story. so with the polls closed and the snap election in austria at the seams of osteen courts will be returned as the chancellor of austria. was was his people's party of picked up well quite a few votes at the expense it would seem of their former coalition partners the far right freedom party who have taken what looks like to be quite a beating in this election although the reason for this snap election was the vote of no confidence that was called in the previous government over what became known
as the a b. think a video now this video is took place in a booth or innocent guess was a video it involves the now former chair vice chancellor heinz christine stark in which she was recorded offering political favors to a well well woman who claimed to be a wealthy russian in exchange for campaign donations now that caused a massive scandal right through austrian politics but as i say it does seem that kurtz will definitely be back as chancellor may well be back is the head of the same coalition but one person who isn't going to be there is the former vice chancellor. ok to spring in get and he's a professor in political science at university of vienna very good evening to you professor. sebastian could will he go for a coalition with the freedom party do you think. yes i do think that's it that's
his 1st option because i have many similar issues so and they form a correlation to did it a lot of things together. not separate at the embassies. so he's the guy to get the kurdish understood freedom you unless the freedom party itself doesn't want to go to an illusion because somehow sure it's about chancellor kohl it's. doing the election climate change like let's during the election campaign so this they don't buy my red shoes to go into their opposition. quints might i do form a coalition maybe they can encourage mrs social democrats however they each use separate the social democrats and conservative party play much. negotiations will be very difficult to desert option for your quits would be
a coalition is the green party but the face of the green party doesn't play to vaunt to have a core of vision is a conservative but what showed say election was that the limited the upper limit of that i mean freedom party if there were these but the has been reached sort at that etc and doing all over europe i guess so all the best for our own theories but they're not. going increasing steadily in the future if in that with the same coalition as it was in position before does that mean that everything stays the same of there are any changes. now days of change because now the chancellor who. got hundreds of very freak. freedom party so that. the benefit of courts so he's the one who will decide what each shoes are and what that a position is and not allow. it to get the ministry of interior you know what that
means you mr finitary what if we don't. so if we could see a nice day is that if we don't buy fish that my when the issue of take her to kurdish and we do not have. it together so awkward it's my friends with me to have it he bought into kurdish and which supports more of this he's issues. of. conflict or times or doubt i'll choose some more difficult for any. issue some to see. if i for instance. what about the social democrats did you expect them to do better what went wrong. this social democrats did not as good as expected now they're in a situation where to have to be in a time kurdish and reverse. quits you know they they are currently this.
sort of the conservative party failed in deposit social democrats at the chancellor if this coalition doesn't work are they only have options to go through into our position again so it would be social democrats have very limited very limited. options to have to have many compromises if they want to govern together. chancellor cordes. so that's just for the sort of democrats. it's. probably we really have. a conservative government. in the next 5 years. professor appreciate your time thanks for that speaking to professor hines get now he's a. lecturer in political science at the university of vienna.
children's toys were in the crosshairs on cheese days the french government signed an agreement to combat gender stereotypes trying to show toy makers and sellers don't automatically push dolls for girls and cars for boys in need or active 6 to attract wall girls towards science activities stating that gender divisions in stores are a thing of the past and should be scrapped before christmas and they say it's to broaden children's imaginations so they're not influenced by stereotypes as they grow up. we're looking so worried in the creation of new toys 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 of summer welcoming the move others claim it's a form of gender and nearing his for that our guest had to say. 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 incentive to all men to truth 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 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 or get
what started forth we were involved on the side of those nations pinched for us in the destitution was there a patient in search one of the balls yes it was the owner of the job and correct you didn't win something or 16. you can still lose certainty whether. it's in the hearing on the side on the wall at this one point he never possibly be there and i can tell you that the. usage of that holding it up to time is consistent with carter's courage or if it was were you able to establish where the phone was across. the 24 to the gerrish system were asked to say that just was with us on. that.
day an economy has and i remember when it was with us doing stuff up nation internet in school it's. no total nonsense. but you are. you're still the rope you have the great cause. the 5 hard to find there are more is a number of pretenders there and. we don't have any role whatsoever in the investigation of this case that involved the murder of genesis rico right and you have no personal information whatsoever with regards to how this murder took place. you weren't there weren't you noticed you didn't see the fire the shots did not open for.
