gorbachev and the opportunity for peace wish to starts october third on g.w. . this is deja vu news live from berlin the german chancellor suffers an unexpected blow all of that goal puts on a brave face as her party to oust a key ally critics say this could be the beginning of the end of the mcaleer also coming up. so in chaos the death and destruction president uses an address to the u.n. general assembly to attack the leaders of iran. and he was once known as america's
8:01 am
dad but from now on actor bill cosby will be known as a violent sexual predator he's been sent to jail for drugging and sexually assaulting a woman. at his sports no rest for the bundesliga hall full schedule midweek match ups all high flying sides of braman and berlin facing off we'll have all the goals coming up. i'm brian thomas thanks for being with us and welcome it is being called a political thunderbolt machall sparling entry party has defied the wishes of the chows or by voting to oust her longstanding ally folk account or as its leader now to say it came as a complete surprise both for the chancellor and the political establishment here in germany opponents believe it could mean her time as chancellor is coming to an end
8:02 am
. only one hundred and twelve votes for a close ally. and lead off a party's parliamentary bloc for thirteen years words as one hundred twenty five votes for his opponent. a rather low profile m.p. known for his budgetary expertise he's now the new leader of the cd un sees you group in parliament and unexpected outcome and also a defeat for the german chancellor playing calls himself trying to downplay the significance of the vote. looking forward to working with. as has just been explained there's no daylight between us it will be a close and trusting cooperation just as i've had with her in recent years. before the vote had urged the conservative m.p.'s to support counter her candidate was also backed by leaders of the conservatives but very insistent party this see is you but to no avail the majority wanted to change afterward the newly elected
8:03 am
leader stressed that he didn't see the result as a vote against anglo american but the german chancellor acknowledged the outcome is a defeat. this is democracy and that means sometimes you lose a vote there's nothing to gloss over but i want the parliamentary group of the c.d.u. and sees you to be successful and therefore i will support wherever possible. lost one of her closest confidence to have been at the top of the parliamentary party of the conservatives since i'm glad america became german chancellor in two thousand and five all position parties declared kalidas defeat a clear sign that merkel's time as chancellor is coming to an end does this shows that mrs merkel can no longer rely on the support of her own group so i recommend that mrs merkel ask for a vote of confidence that. we call on the government to finally come to terms and
8:04 am
to be a government again and not a divided bunch. for the m.p.'s of a conservative party this is in the known situation until now and always have the support of a majority but not for sure any more. so is the clock ticking for all america let's talk about that with political correspondent simon young good morning simon germany's biggest selling delhi newspaper both sides on the saying this morning that asking rather whether on a macro can still govern can she without the support of her own party well there's no doubt that this is a huge blow to angela merkel's leadership focus was a man who stood at her side since the beginning of chance of the ship and really bolstered it we often refer to his role as chief whip that is to say sort of her enforcer in paul i'm at the man responsible for making sure that her side at least
8:05 am
voted the right way either by persuasion or occasionally by sort of gentle application of the thumbscrews and now he's been moved just saw it that we can see clearly can she still govern yes for now i think he's the arms of the new man said that he's just as ready to work with her closely as his previous says the deed but clearly she's going forward she's weakened and she faces a conference of her. party in december now after yesterday's vote it looks rather less likely than it did before that she will be reelected as party leader. difficult times regular matt simon this administration has been moving from one crisis to another we just saw one solved yesterday a little couple days ago what's behind this crisis dynamic i think the real problem of this government is that it contains two or three parties who are worried that
8:06 am
they are losing touch with their vote. the base and in fact probably have lost touch with much of it you've got the very in conservatives of the c.s.u. . of course faced a very important regional election in just a couple of weeks' time we've seen their lead a horse they hope again and again rattling the cage and trying to voters to the idea that he's an alternative voice particularly on the migration issue so he threatens the government from that side the social democrats for their part emerged from a very bad election result of the general election last year they effectively only join this government to try and you know repair the damage and many within the social democrat party are looking for their opportunity to to put a new offering to the voters so you've got stresses and strains fault lines within the government and many people think that it won't go to the full term for that
8:07 am
very reason and those cracks just widen didn't they after of to after this vote simon thanks very much for that for us president donald trump has attacked globalism in a speech to the u.n. general assembly he said quote sovereign nations should promote their own traditions and interests and not defer to global institutions like the un he also said washington would be cutting its funding for peacekeeping missions and would never recognize the jurisdiction of the international criminal court after arriving at the plane or a whole late in keeping everyone waiting president trump launched into his address he hailed what he called extraordinary progress made since his first speech at the u.n. general assembly one year ago a statement that was met with barely stifled love to across three. in less than two years my administration has accomplished more than almost any administration
8:08 am
in the history america and. america so if you. didn't expect that reaction with the truth. trump continued undaunted a recurring theme throughout his address was america's rejection of globalization the united states will not tell you how to live or work or worship we only oust you honor our sovereignty in return. he also warned other nations against in bracing globalism and singled out germany for criticism saying the country will become totally dependent on russian energy if it does not change course the german delegation looks somewhat bemused. there was praise for north
8:09 am
korea in his speech last year trump derided north korean leader kim jong un as a little rocket man this year he thanks the communist dictator for his steps towards denuclearization trump reserved his harshest criticism for iran calling it a brutal and corrupt dictatorship iran's leaders he said was sowing chaos death and destruction across the region we ask all nations to isolate iran's regime. as long as its aggression continues. and we ask well nations to support the rands people as they struggle to reclaim. their religious and righteous destiny. later iran's president has done rouhani used his speech to push back against the u.s. accusing donald trump of trying to topple his government rouhani said the new u.s. sanctions amount to economic terrorism and found that iran would not be powered by
8:10 am
them president trumps attack on iran was not unexpected last year his maiden speech at the un general assembly shocked many world leaders this year there were frowns of disapproval and at the end plights applause was. ok let's get some analysis now on the speech with tyson barker's u.s. affairs analyst with the aspen institute here in berlin one tyson morning you know it was an incredible speech we were analyzing it last night talking about it before this interview with the president wants to isolate iran that was at the core of this speech do you see europe ignoring that and moving as it plans to do to work with china and russia to dodge the u.s. sanctions on iran i mean that's definitely the attempt that we're seeing here is to create a firewall for to preserve this agreement the iran nuclear agreement j c p a way the question is whether or not it can be successful you know the europeans
8:11 am
really taking the lead here fredricka mogul ready to create this special purpose vehicle which is to inoculate buyers of iranian oil those who have put foreign direct investment into iran so they're not having to use the dollar and basically expose themself to u.s. sanctions now the question really is will that work the way that the sanctions are structured and are going to be implemented it looks like that that might not work because any company having business in the united states would still be subject to sanctions no matter what the avenue of flow is into iran even if they don't use the swift system for travel funds and v.w. for example is already pulled out of iran washington has responded with disappointment to the e.u. announcement by rainy meanwhile the u.s. has issued new warnings to iran let's listen in now to trump's national security advisor john bull on that issue if you cross us our allies or our partners if you harm our citizens if you continue to lie cheat and deceive
8:12 am
yes there will indeed be held. hell to pay does that apply to europe tyson what are america's options with europe should it work with china and russia on dodging the sanctions i mean the biggest cudgel that the united states has its twenty trillion dollar economy not having access to that twenty trillion dollar economy is a real threat for for european companies chinese companies russian companies etc if you look at the work that's being done by the u.s. ambassador to germany for example able protege richard richard grinnell who has said you know each company that has come out and said we're pulling out of iran b.s.f. for example he is touted on his twitter feed so this is really a sustained campaign to pull european companies out of the orbit to do business in the days ok the question is will it be successful you know at this assembly and at
8:13 am
the u.n. the president was working to isolate iran but a lot of ways to look like it was america that was isolated well again you know there's the president and then there's the u.s. economy i think that if in a vacuum it was just a political question i think that most people would side on the side of preserving an agreement that the iranians have actually complied with but if it's a question of having access the u.s. market the world still the world's largest market the twenty trillion dollars market a lot of great consumers a lot of very wealthy consumers stable rule of law you know great place to invest and then they're going to have to think twice ok not just around of course in the speech. the president also talked about the primacy of the nation state over global institutions and their supporters very looked like the president was laying down what sounded like to me the trump doctrine you know with this is you know sometimes he toggles between or even a year and a half almost two years that we've seen him in office he's toggle between kind of an internationalist stablish mint wing you know the old mcmasters even the pump
8:14 am
ailes to some extent the madison who have written things like the national security strategy the national defense strategy. and then these speeches like he gave in poland like his speech at the u.n. general assembly last year which are much more bannan mist which basically as you said define globalism is a type of ideology that needs to be fought against unelected bureaucrats technocrats who think they know better than the elect the people that elect officials and what he's basically saying is you know we need an international strategy dish counter act that that every country should be making itself great again just like the united states is reclaiming its sovereignty from institutions like you and briefly if you could the plays very well ahead of the midterm elections in the u.s. to his base back home well i mean this is going to be a very domestically focused midterm election i think you know there's a lot of issues right now about the treatment of women there's a lot of issues around the supreme court there are questions about rising prices i think that this will be much more domestically focused than international tyson
8:15 am
barker from the aspen institute as ever thanks very much. now for some of the other stories making the news at this hour britain's opposition labor party has voted in favor of keeping open the option of a second referendum on. delegates approving the motion with overwhelming support at their annual conference being held in liverpool by minister theresa may criticize the move insisting again that there will be no second referendum. a balloon go well has been spotted in the river thames near london scientists say that puts the animal hundreds of kilometers away from its usual arctic habitat. some twenty lu the wells have previously been seen in british waters but usually farther north. for all to the u.s. now and from america's data to sexual predator us comedian and former t.v. star bill cosby is in prison where he's been ordered to serve between three and ten
8:16 am
years for drugging and sexually assaulting a woman the judge also declared cosby a violent sexual predator and that means will be subject to monitoring for the rest of his life is the first leverage to be locked up since the downfall of media mogul harvey weinstein and the start of the need to movement. the day of reckoning for the men millions thought they knew bill cosby sentenced to at least three years behind bars before he can even apply for parole his victim andrea const and said he drugged her and sexually assaulted her in two thousand and four some sixty women have made similar accusations against him. outside the courthouse some of them gathered with their lawyer to hail the sentence but i'm sure you know them if people were all my friends from his or her cooper like you could go on with this is just going to open them that they can make it through and that
8:17 am
there's justice. and how the. cosbys defense team say they will appeal the court's ruling they claim his conviction was based on falsified evidence and racial bias he corrected mr casby no god is watching over here so he knows the visa lives they persecuted jesus and look what happened not sam because it is jesus but we know what this country is going to black me the truth the eighty one year old cosby was denied bail during the appeals process instead he embarks on a life far removed from the fortune and accolades that accompanied the height of his career. we have the business leaders midweek games they are braman in berlin are teams brimming with confidence right now both sides made an unbeaten start to the season they faced off a battle of the surprise packages. of pals our guy has guided
