11:00 am
russia which is the biggest markets. last couple years will be. exporting a lot to united states canada northern europe. this hour's headlines stories u.s. democrats intensify their efforts to topple donald trump arguing the president is. being held from a foreign state coming 2020. human 2.0 the pentagon says it's exploring ways of altering the genetic makeup of troops to protect them from chemical and biological attacks we asked people on the streets of new york city what they think of the super soldiers and. i think i think god created them is enough good enough for me. there's got to be consequences to the most outrageous
11:01 am
thing i've ever heard. the rights campaigners accuse the u.k. government of feeling in its commitment to protect young girls from female genital mutilation is after britain's high court accepted it was powerless to prevent the home office from deporting a 10 year old deemed to be at risk of f g m we have the family's lawyer life on the program. around the clock across the world this is your r.t. international from the team and myself you know neal hello and welcome. we begin in the u.s. where an impeachment inquiry into donald trump is gaining momentum it seems democratic party leaders claim the president has betrayed his country and there's no longer fit for office. this occupant occupant of the oval office poses a clear and present danger to our future to our democracy isn't day.
11:02 am
by putting his personal and political interests ahead of the interests of the american people place that i hoped we would never be and never thought we would see a president take the actions that he has it's not about politics it's not about partisanship it's about patriotism. choose the house of representatives launched a formal impeachment inquiry into double trouble a worked late in wrongdoing during a phone call between the president and his ukrainian counterpart vladimir zelinsky it is the latest in this slew of impeachment attempts mr trump has faced since he took office in january 27th. the walls feel like they're closing in on the trumpet ministration right now and i'm not sure they can 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
11:03 am
with trump on the walls are closing in on the trump white house. all of the walls are closing and at this point the walls are closing in fast and. then as you remember the democrats onslaught pretty much on a daily basis all you're hearing was. bunked russian. our senior correspondent because the it has been taking a closer look at the moves against president trump. if you're a democrat the hardcore liberal type you knew in your heart the trump would be brought down the only question was how long it would take just needed a reason and come on there were plenty new people put their money on the trump russia collusion story treason collusion between the trump team and the russians and trump knew about it that would truly be impeachable it's miss prison of treason
11:04 am
and so far his response has been exploding and unfortunately proved entirely fabricated but to hell with it obstruction of justice federal system in the united states that would to do it to president trump trying to block the f.b.i.'s rush investigation commit an impeachable offense are we getting closer and closer to the possibility of yet another impeachment process no dodges that to come on let's go in on the guy slept with the porn star media told us and paid a hush money to keep it silent no way he'd survive that bicycle you see the trump team stepping into every trap that she and her lawyer set for them having a president knowledge that he was actually meant to be a party to the nondisclosure agreement and now of course she's got a an avenue and a way to fire back at it cohen what is going on how many get out of jail
11:05 am
free cards does trump have you can keep this up surely every excuse to get rid of trump was brought up the sky just dissected in this guarded nothing would stake until now it seems like ukraine is the 1st nail in trumps political coffin blood hounds democrats smell blood weakness at long last. trump is vulnerable i think focusing on the c. crean scandal singularly is important i think we have to act quickly but not with haste of the more able to speak with one voice on that subject than on some of the other we've got to go narrow no question about it i would hope within a 6 week frame we could get the evidence on the table so the american people can see it just one phone conversation and trump signed his political death warrant and if you thought it was about russia you thought wrong even
11:06 am
a russia was discussed in that very call i would like to find out what happened with this whole situation with the ukraine they say crowd strike i guess you have one of your wealthy people the server they say ukraine has it that sounds crazy democrat servers hacked by the russians allegedly somehow ending up in ukraine but these things are so secure crowd strike the d.n.c. as computer security squad warden let the f.b.i. look at them would threaten their security if the f.b.i. investigated they claimed all that the agents received were redacted draft reports all the information about russian hacking was pushed amongst others by crowd strike and the f.b.i. putting him politely said this isn't how things easily done it's not the
11:07 am
way we would prefer to do the investigation 2 years have passed than trump still hasn't been able to find those servers from may or may not have reason to think that the servers are in ukraine it is trumbo after all whatever they know in washington it's clear that the democrats won't let go of this whole ukraine business they finally got solid ground for their long awaited impeachment oh and russia. forget it when kids anymore the democrats are desperate. they're 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
11:08 am
so they're hoping to bring trump down but i just can't imagine that it will work. in a move that someone straight from the piece of site find the pentagon sees it seeking to boost the immunity of u.s. soldiers against chemical and biological attacks by genius but there are fears the defense of human upgrade as it's being called could be weaponized the scale of the report. 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
11:09 am
a little bit closer to science fiction perhaps a bit more fantasy than fact he will be the 1st in a 3 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 a better fix of d.n.a. could be could be used to live longer. maybe mitt be less relying on things like waste why what do we use this with soldiers who don't like the idea no i don't
11:10 am
that's sad because there's got to be consequences to the oh i change you know their street their vision their it's you know anything's the end anything that will 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 i'm dependence and these superhero fantasies. better been with us for a long time and it relates to ancient myths 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 we did it's very dangerous you don't
11:11 am
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. 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 hard to see new york and certainly food for thought but evolutionary biologist on manila roy told r.t. sophie should i not say that breeding people for a specific tasks is still a long way off so peaceful show if you'd like to. hear throughout the day.
11:12 am
at the moment we still have a very poor understanding of the genetic variation that allows people to become one to excel in one kind of profession and another the notion that you can breed people for particular aspects. although in principle is possible in practice it's very far away what we do is we what i'm suggesting will happen soon is selection for such an attribute and but the number of choices that you can add are relatively few what i simply mean is that you've only got a handful of eggs and embryos in a petri dish and you can only make a limited number of choices between them and the choices that you're going to make all the it's basically to eliminate the bad things you're not going to be breeding soldiers or super super intelligent kids out of that.
11:13 am
they. top diplomats of russia the united states are currently holding talks on the sidelines of the un general assembly in new york in addition to a raft of geo political concerns sergey lavrov is expected to raise america's failure to issue visas to members of precious delegation to the un general assembly ahead of the session 10 delegates including the head of the russian consul committee on foreign affairs constantine kasich off we're not issued u.s. visas russia's foreign ministry called the move on precedent it failure by the u.s. to uphold its international obligations american officials said though that the correct paperwork had not been submitted. while we're waiting for
11:14 am
a mike pompei on mr lavrov to emerge let's cross no better time to russia historian martin mccauley at for his take martin good to see you and perhaps we'll we'll get to the visa issue in just a moment that will certainly be touched upon but do you think it will or what will be the focus of the talks between. expect anything positive to come out of them today in new york. well if you look at the. american relations you'd be a pessimist you always have to remain an optimist there's always a better tomorrow. the very. he's the best russian. to improve relations with americans. you know the american future is going to work. something positive will come out of this because this is going to
11:15 am
move the. members of the russian delegation to the u.n. general you not received these and i thought you knew going to law you had to grant them if you were going to the u.n. would go to the. other russians have been complaining that they haven't been getting getting visas or the very very difficult to get these in the u.s. which presumably means it is a deliberate american pows need. to go through improving relations in a way to improve relations improve trust. and so on and therefore hopefully love growth and compare will come up with something make the visa regime easier for russians you want to visit the united states yeah i think it's very peculiar want to for for observers just hearing about this story because russia has claimed that the us failed to adhere to its international commitments by not providing visas to the u.n. delegation how significant is it if that is fine to be indeed correct.
11:16 am
that's not a serious allegation against united states because our goal is for every u.n. delegation which every country it was the mother of his iran will china or the other country but you have to go on visas because they're going to leave you alone the u.n. is a supranational institution but apparently that's not correct now the americans may say that there are certain people that list whom we have already blacklisted level should be on the list that's another question and this is quite a serious thing because everyone expects every international delegation going to the u.n. general assembly can receive these or because the u.n. is obliged need the key supranational organization. with the united states and russia believe it goes well the security council it's hard to know exactly where russia american relations are at the moment moscow has continually said we're open
11:17 am
for talks for dialogue at we saw you know a happy hunch just a few moments ago beef between the 2 top diplomats of the countries do you see a time in the not too distant future where where relations will improve martin. well they have to improve. their always a major one was in the bargain basement and they're hard to improve because russia is an important country and you console whole host of international problems. who were both from iraq and syria and of course the americans are blacklisted if you're sanctions against cargo ships supplying fuel to the new year so far ships supply to supply fuel to the assad regime in syria which again is from an outsider where different laws not because after all they're trying to defeat. another
11:18 am
supposedly on same side so it's very difficult american pows fleet is in fact quite difficult one a law is objective because it seems to veer from one extreme to the other without an explanation. mike promptly who is he is a very highly qualified to be but a highly qualified lawyer and so on so there's a lot he's aware of all these things and presumably something rational will come out of the discussions yet we await to see what indeed does the talks are ongoing as we say martin mccauley political i will be speaking to us live on the program thank you thank you ok the news continues in just over a minute's time as they close. i am. by the bible god that's taking it all going to start settling out of all these are . going to be. back to.
11:19 am
the old. repatriations were there up to 70 earth. delegates guys are part. most people think in this business you need to be the 1st one on top of the story or the person with the loudest voice of the biggest read. to stand. you just the dance the right questions and demand the right answer. the. question.
11:20 am
just approaching 20 minutes into the program welcome back a u.k. court has said it is unable to prevent the home office from deporting a 10 year old sudanese girl at risk of female genital mutilation after her mother's asylum application was rejected summing up the main points of the story. putting aside his enthusiasm for war and its cozy relationships with the tight the british government style the self of the staunch defender of human rights around the world the latest crusade they've taken up is the fight against of g.m. in other countries they've pledged 50000000 pounds by 2030 to combat the issue. of the bible at least 3 days into any requirement it doesn't make. sense to will understand of god but the british home office is pushing ahead with
11:21 am
deporting a woman and her 10 year old daughter to bahrain from where lawyers fear then be deported on to done but the mother is originally from the country has one of the highest rates of conducting f.g.s. in the world and the girl risks being another victim they are happy to prosecute female genital mutilation they're happy to give money abroad to stamp it out but they're failing to protect women who are at risk if deported a british family court earlier ruled that the coal face the risk of being circumcised against her will if sense of board but it was a move by the home office which said immigration issues the courts business perhaps the most high profile attempt by the u.k. to deport someone it was the case of the radical cleric the u.k. accused of having ties to al qaida it took 12 years and 1700000 pounds to remove him and was a victory for the british government since he's deployed taishan britain has spent almost 200000 pounds protecting his wealth in jordan and the question now is
11:22 am
whether the mother and her little girl would also get that much protection from u.k. authorities if she ends up back in. the u.k. home office is yet to respond to our request for comment on the case but i am very happy to say that we're joined live now on the program by the family's lawyer dr charlotte weidman good to see you. great a risk of f.g.s. is this 10 year old girl why is the u.k. government attempting to deport her if she may be subjected to the practice. yes i mean what we say so i represent her mother and her mother says that her little girl is a high risk of a g.m. so her mother was cut and she suffered type 3 f g m which is the most physically severe type of f. she and that any woman or child can undergo and in fact the mother says her sister has also died whilst enjoying this most brutal practice so she certainly says is a high risk of a g.m. and we know from the social services who took this application to court to stop
11:23 am
this little girl from being deported that they also believe has a high risk of a g.m. and also the national center here an expert organization working with families in this country who are at risk if she and also believe that this little girl is at risk so there's a wealth of expertise here that says she is at risk of a but unfortunately the home secretary and also the immigration authorities say the immigration courts don't feel that the risk is this is high as experts and we know that perhaps the reason for that is that immigration authorities often have a real concern about the numbers of immigrants in this country and so they take quite a punitive approach in thinking about whether this person ought to be allowed status or not whereas in contrast in the family courts which is why this case was heard that paramount consideration is the child but unfortunately the family courts it seems as a result of this ruling at least they're not able to intervene and say to the home
11:24 am
secretary no you can't deport the simple girl because we said there's a high risk of f.p.m. just to explain what the home office may say i suppose surely if the solutions are made on what could happen not in the directly deported to country but to a 3rd country after that then it would be an astonishing workload would it not. no not at all i mean the home office to consider the situation of this little girl being returned to bahrain and then potentially to sudan and what might happen when she's that i mean the whole purpose of an asylum claim is to look at what can happen in that returning country wherever that may be and if they're not able to return to bahrain then as you said the situation in sudan looks even more dire because we know that the prevalence rates if i am a while over 90 percent i mean it's astonishing that anyone could possibly conceive reasonably conceive this little girl wouldn't be at such a risk of a. short not to be granted status in this country just just briefly i believe there
11:25 am
is a pause in the deportation because of the conclusion of a separate up with haitian female genital mutilation that just just briefly do you think. be stopped perhaps with something like that. so what we did is we have we made this there's this application for the protection order by social services so the family court they intervened which is this case that you're talking about. but they said that they can't stop deportation but the secretary of state has said well what we're going to do is we're not going to deport while this family case is ongoing and so that's likely to conclude around december time when the family courts of each decision as to where this little girl is at high risk if she have but even if the family courts say she is at high risk then it begs the question of well what's next because they can't stop the home secretary from removing her so really the power lies with the immigration authorities the power lies with the home
11:26 am
secretary to ensure that she is safe here in this country just finally finally how often do you see cases like this. really on a daily if not weekly basis i mean it's quite astounding i specialize in my ph d. was enough c.m. lauren policy i'm an academic in that area as well as about. so i see these cases and family courts and i see them immigration courts and they're even more devastating and my real concern here is that we have a government that appears to be committed to prosecuting cases of effort and throwing the book ethnic minority families when the this country but when it comes to protecting girls the terrorists brought illegitimately claim asylum the government's all too ready to refuse that claim because in my view if a so-called hostile immigration environment and they're not given the status that they so desperately need so i see this real contradiction in the government's approach time and time again played out
11:27 am
a new cases sadly sure thank you dr shah the problem and the family's lawyer speaking to us live on the program and that's our law for we are venturing into one of america's most the probe neighborhoods next to tell the hollowing story of a little girl killed when she wandered into a going to shoot them and it was a documentary stray bullets begins in moments. assigned richard marles worst nightmare hi i'm richard not dead planet everything on planet earth is dead because bin securitized and we can send it all well there's a teenager in the us and more they're heartbroken crying her eyes out because she's going to grow up on a dead planet. securitizing sold and resold and repack answer to 1000 times
11:28 am
10000 times we're left with nothing except a dream of one who was what i was and this is no more. join me everything on the alex salmond's show and i'll be speaking to guest of the pix. i'm show business i'll see you then. there's a news. morning. oh . this is supposed to.
11:29 am
and. current. the sister was killed. on july. 13th. we actually haven't. worked.
11:30 am
out i'm also. going to the store and. that's when everything out. i could. see that not all that. were happening. here. shots came from over there. thank you. soon after the murder of my daughter jenna says jim you're more trains often running so. jeffrey either be officer very him self. for an accomplice.
