u.s. democrats kick into impeachment mode with an official probe launched into president trump but the basis for it all relies on a single with a 2nd hand knowledge of events. you have still in my dreams you might start today with your. 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's toys but the decision has activists arguing about the choice. they want to give the free. to choose whatever they want to girls and boys are different men and women are different and there is no problem to be.
live from moscow thanks for joining us on the weekly here in our the international and daniel welcome to the program. 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 2020 presidential race i made 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 key 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 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 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 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 said you know i get the 1000000000 i will be leaving here i think it was about 6 hours i looked as i'm 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'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 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 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 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 path the impeachment will follow as of now is a make or break situation but for us democrats to trump ukraine conversation saugor is not enough now say they want trump to disclose another transcript of his conversations with a lot of your puter. 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 hot of us said trumps the sit in to publish the ukrainian transcript changes relations between world leaders that makes it dangerous to negotiate with the
united states former cia officer john could yaqui believes washington's moves could also damage its 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. conduct business to carry out the diplomacy 'd 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 donald 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 can't 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's or a fresh wave of global climate protests including in canada where thousands took to the streets into these across the country among those taking part in a rally in montreal while the canadian prime minister and 2 knocked with questions . as a meeting between the 2 justin trudeau to doing more to save the planet money from but delivered an impassioned address to the un climate action summit a swedish combine over a beautiful world leaders for failing to tackle a distraction of the biosphere. you have stolen my dreams my childhood with your empty words and yet i'm one of the jocks once. 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 dare you 6. while she's been widely praised for
a speech there are those who say she's leaving a cult for the younger generation or does they have looked at a 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 but though it's not something that we have to prepare for it is something that is here you know there's a word for that the image feeling that the world is about to and that i'm a get in 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 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. 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 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 paid well 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 sols seriously they've got
a climate confessions page that tell me this isn't the full blown religion. 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 they don't automatically push dolls for girls and cars for boys of a new directive seeks to attract more girls toward science activities 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 of our generation so they're not influenced by stereotypes as they grow up we're looking to work 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 and while some are welcoming the move others claim it's a form of gender engineering is what our guests had to say 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 girl again they can play with adult all and then they can play without the stuff related to to you know computer science maybe math or other things that actually will be an incentive to women to choose other subjects in 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 a difference and there is no problem to be fixed all votes have been counted in austria's snuff election called in the wake of a donation scandal will tell you which party has the edge after this short break. what politicians do something to. put themselves on the line they get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. or something want to. watch you go right to the person it's like the 3 of them or people. i'm interested always in the why. aren't there.
so what we've got to do is. identify the threats that we have it's crazy. let it be an arms race is also a spear in dramatic development that only loosely uses i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down and talk. pretty. much the weekly form of shots. has one austria's snap election with all ballots counted it picked up 38 percent of the vote. it's incredible it's an amazing day it's in the story results for part 2 and the end result try to.
talk through all the other parties in the parliament and try to form a government to the words for the people of forcefield thank you. for the last 4 months the country has been ruled by a caretaker government after a donation scandal brought down the conservative coalition back in may the fallout was triggered by a video showing his coalition partner offering political favors to a wealthy woman claiming to be from russia an exchange for donations for his election campaign incident became known as the affair as the video was shot on the spanish political scientist yet now believes that the former coalition partners are likely to be reunited. he's been the guy to get the kurdish leaders the freedom party unless the freedom party senator doesn't want to lose the coalition if they don't buy my red shoes to go into their opposition. cliques might try to form a coalition resist social democrats however the issues are separate the social
democrats and their conservative party play much. negotiations will be very difficult but assert option for your quits would be a 3rd edition is the green party but the base of the green party doesn't even want to have a correlation with the concern about the therapeutic courts where fines for people have to be bought in the kurdish which supports more of this he issues or the other option some more difficult for him. in a move that sounds like a straight out of science fiction the pentagon said monday but it seeking to boost the immunity of u.s. soldiers i mean to protect them against chemical and biological attacks through the use of gene editing there are fears that so-called human upgrades could be weaponized as capable and 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 marine. 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 no 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 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 end 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 arsenal i'm just 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. but 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. in certain 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 r.t. new york. city washington in the u.s. has by and movie goes from wearing costumes mosque and face planes during screenings of the new joke a film in theaters just a week before the premiere. you should use me as joker. in. the band comes amid fears of possible violence during screenings concerns were raised by families of victims of a mass shooting at a batman movie back in 2012 when a dozen people were killed xander claims that the killer may have been inspired by the joker character the studio distanced itself from the violence denying that the dark knight rises movie influence the perpetrators actions and latest release won't
be shown at the venue in colorado where that massacre took place earlier this week the u.s. military issued warnings to its service members about a mass shooting threat at showings of the joke a film that soft intelligence officers this covered several warring online posts. boost and social media have made reference to bowl interest so but in so extremists replicating the 2012 theater shooting in aurora colorado at screenings of the joker movie at nationwide theaters 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 or the threat apparently comes from the so-called in-cell community it's an online group consisting of men who describe themselves as involuntarily celibate they blame society for their failure to find a sexual or romantic partner with some even promoting violence as a form of revenge. and todd phillips the director of joker has rebuffed the claims
that this film may provoke violence saying critics simply don't know what they're talking about. it's a little troubling when people write think pieces without having seen it and even in their think piece is right i don't need to see it to know what it is to me that's you know i find it astounding to be quite frank how easily the far left can sound like the far right when it suits their agenda i think the reason for that is is somewhat hypocritical the concern over the joker movie is warranted because according to the f.b.i. they have been picking up chatter on some dark web websites that indicate that there is talk about a possible incident that could occur somewhere at a movie theater that's been undisclosed the united states especially right now we're in such a fractured society in terms of the view of you know racial politics and how everyone views each other there is a huge concern about this idea of white males being a threat to the society in general i don't think that's an accurate assessment in
terms of the actual belief that white males in general are a danger to society but this is a needy a narrative that's been playing out for some time now for a growing from a documentary channel coming up next though back in 50 minutes time with the latest global news headlines. join me every thursday on the alex salmond show and i'll be speaking to guest of the world the politics sports business i'm showbusiness i'll see you then. donny and by north it's so many people because they copied him you saw more of that
