that here is someone who will do the board. cuts kick in to impeachment mode with an official probe launched into president trump but the basis for the relies on a single whistleblower with a 2nd hand knowledge of events. that started in my dreams might start with your. teenage environmentalist. slams world leaders over their inaction on climate change with the public divided by her activism. the war on gender stereotypes for the new directive aimed at children's toys the decision though as activists argue about choice difference. they want to give the freedom. to choose whatever they want to girls and boys are different men and women

are different and there is no problem to be fixed. good evening to you watching the weekly here on r.t. . in the biggest news of the week there was a sense of triumph among us democrats after an official impeachment inquiry was launched into president trump this latest chapter was brought about by his alleged attempts to undermine the key democratic rival in the 2020 presidential race amid claims leaned on ukraine's president to investigate joe biden's son's activities in the country in exchange for u.s. support for what is it 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
4:02 pm
on the truth of 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 was 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 course 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 inquiry signals the very start of
4:03 pm
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 add. have blackmailed the previous ukrainian administration into closing a corruption investigation into a gas company his son had an executive role that i said you know i get the 1000000000 i will be leaving here i think it was about 6 hours i looked as it
4:04 pm
really is 6 hours and if the prosecutor is not fired you're not getting the money well son of a. you're fired trump seems to be in all sorts of trouble following pelosi as 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's 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
4:05 pm
work on the investigation of the case i would kindly ask if you have any additional information that you can provide to us we 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
4:06 pm
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
4:07 pm
it as 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 path the impeachment will follow as of now is a make or break situation for us democrats the ukraine conversation saga is not enough they now say that they want to disclose they know the 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 spokesperson maria herrera said france decision to publish the caribbean transcript changes relations between world leaders and makes it dangerous to negotiate with the u.s. from a cia officer john kiriakou believes that washington's moves could also damages foreign policy. i think that is a fishing expedition i saw that this morning in the u.s.
4:08 pm
media and you know we have this thing in the united states called executive privilege where the executive branch of government is allowed to conduct 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 and 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 so fresh wave of global climate protests including in canada where thousands took to the streets in cities across
4:09 pm
the country among those taking part in montreal were the canadian prime minister and teen activists christa timberg i mean between the 2 she urged just into you know to do more to save the planet from monday to be delivered an impassioned address to the u.n. climate action summit the swedish campaigner 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 just how much economic growth how did you i also being widely praised for her speech to those who say she's leading
4:10 pm
a cult for the young generation i guess they have less of 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
4:11 pm
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
4:12 pm
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 eva. 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.
4:13 pm
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
4:14 pm
a dirty trashy folk the sort who go into a room. 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. we're going to church while 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 sols seriously they've got
4:15 pm
a climate confessions page now tell me this isn't a full blown religion. so his toys are 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 you directed 6 or track more girls toward science stating in that gender divisions in stores are a thing of the past and that they should be scrapped before christmas their aim is said to be to broaden children's of our generation so they're not influenced by stereotypes as they grow up where looking to work in the creation of new toys and also how they are represented in advertisement and the way they are sold fighting discrimination later on requires action right from the very 1st days. well some are welcoming the mayville this claim is a form of gender engineering here's what our guest had to say. it's really good
4:16 pm
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 are related to 2 in a computer science maybe in math other things that actually will be an incentive to women to choose 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 that the idea that somehow you can charge society by part by by forcing boys to play with dolls and girls play with trucks. is an absolute it's ludicrous bills and boys are different men and women

4:20 pm
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 cuts 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 school scientists time to get that goes through because his coalition options. peaceably to try to get the kurdish leaders to play don't doubt the unless the freedom party said if doesn't want a little coalition if they don't buy might read choose to go into their opposition . quits might try to form a coalition resist social democrats however the issues so separate the social democrats and conservative party play much so that a kurdish. negotiations will be very difficult but
4:21 pm
a set option for your quits would be a coalition is that they in the but the base of the green party does not play divonne to have a correlation with a conservative biopic quits where friends were pleased to have her beak bought into kurdish which supports more of this he's issues or the other option some more difficult for him. cinema chain in the united states is bound to mean if it goes from wearing costumes masks and face paint to screenings of the new joke film in the stands is just a week prior to the premiere. gigi's ms joker. of the bank comes amid fears of possible violence during screenings concerns were raised by families of victims of a must shoot ing at

a batman movie that was back in 2201 a dozen people died. on that occasion there were claims the killer may have been inspired by the joker character studio to distance itself from the violence denying that the dark knight rises influence the perpetrators actions the latest release won't be shown at the venue in colorado where the massacre happened earlier in this week the us military issued warnings to its service members about a bash shooting threat showings of the joke a film it's came from intelligence officers discovering several worrying posts on line. booth and social media have made reference to both interest solo but in so extremists replicating the 2012 theater shooting in the rural counties around the screenings of the joker movie at nationwide theater this presents a potential risk to department of defense personnel and family members though there are no known specific credible threats to the opening of the joke on the 4th of october so the threat apparently comes from the so-called intel community this is
