whether or not the long awaited munna probe into trumped russia collusion will deliver a smoking gun us democrats looks set to launch their own investigation intent it seems on still achieving one thing for you ph somebody you have to sway the american public to happen impeachment is a long way down the road we don't have the facts yet the us prolongs the functions on venezuelan officials and considers new measures against countries the supporter president after suffering declared leader of one way to return from caracas.
a british born aid worker who once was a western media darling is deprived of his u.k. citizenship over alleged links to al qaeda the man grounds the accusations are undone and racist. and the u.k. primary school before city caves into pressure and suspends its lessons on homosexuality after hundreds of angry parents keep their children at home in protest. a very warm welcome to you you're watching r.t. international with mean ikey airing in the u.s. the senior u.s. democrats are demanding access to all communications between donald trump amir peretz in the us and made claims the us president concealed details of what he spoke about with his russian counterpart the following request has been sent to the
white house. the committee's request the by march fifteenth twenty nineteen the department produced all documents communications regardless of form and classification the referral relate to any communications between president trump and president putin us emma kratz on doubling down on efforts to catch trump on alleged collusion with russia that could be because there's talk the current miller probe into the issue will prove to be a disappointment in that respect as caleb morton explains. there's an old saying among cops and prosecutors if you throw enough at a wall eventually something will stick and this old saying usually expressed with less polite terminology seems to now be the montra of the democrats in congress gerry navl or has been selected to lead the charge impeachment is a long way down the road we don't we don't have the facts yet but we are going to initiate. a proper investigation so you have peach somebody you have to persuade the american public that it ought to to happen to remember the bob muller
investigation that highly expensive two year long probe into allegations that donald trump had colluded with russia not too long ago democrats had many people convinced that it would be a huge game changer. well the final report is imminent and some are worried that it won't contain a bombshell or smoking gun revelation but some democrats seem to have the same overall goal because we're going to go in there really. i eighty one people have received a letter from the house judiciary committee they plan on following up on every last lead from the testimony of trump's former warrior michael cohen at this point they are planning to investigate the relations between the white house and trump's family the firing of james komi foreign trade deals and much much more and it won't
just be the judiciary committee that is looking into donald trump all you have to do is follow the transcripts if there were names that were mentioned records that were mentioned during the hearing we're going to take a look at all of that the u.s. constitution lays out procedures for trying and removing a president who is guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors the idea is to put a check and balance on the executive branch so that it is not above the law however it seems that as of late investing. ations and impeachment have turned into just another play in the never ending political football game. r.t. in new york on trump has branded the new efforts to impeach him harassment of innocent people he also pointed out that there's no evidence of collusion ties with russia former u.s. republican congressman michael patrick flanagan believes the democrats controlled inquiry will backfire. the democrats knowing that it's not going to be much of
a report are now trying to build their own campaign and continue the to video from all or in their own clumsy imperfect way and their goal is to take this president down and make sure that he is in no way possibly real active next year and so they will do their best to keep this alive if more was keeping his or his a his summer his investigation somehow alive they would be doing this because the need for this investigation would be would be vitiated by a bible or doing here this but now motor is done and he's apparently not going to report much of anything this is the democrats furious so they're going to build an investigation that they control that they run that they can control the outcome of an surprise a price that will have the outcome that they wanted to have and no one will believe it. if it is well and foreign ministry house condemns the latest u.s. sanctions against caracas calling them a historical era meanwhile washington special envoy for venezuela has said nimesh
is also being considered targeting countries that supports president mature we haven't done that yet secondary sanctions. it's clearly a possibility it would depend on the conduct of the regime over time. it would depend on the conduct of those. entities there's been over a month since one declared himself interim president of venezuela but president mature i was still in power and u.s. state department spokesman was asked about the apparent is that back. the fifty four countries have now recognized. as interim president so we're going to continue pushing. we're going continue pushing this direction the number again robert fifty four that's a that's only about a quarter of the. countries in the right if you you know number of countries. but we've got major supports in the western hemisphere and i would just point that
out as well as europe. and. if we look at the mocker cease we're doing pretty well as well ok all right so with the drop in ministration is doing is forcing us. and other countries to jews are you going to support this aggressive the attempted coup to overthrow the elected government of venezuela or are you going to go. aboard this this government that the united states does not like so it is international or the venezuelan conflict on a very dangerous basis because countries now are being forced to do are they going to go with an aggressive imperialism action or are they going to those who are democracy and the rights of the people that as well or at least the u.s. threatens to tighten the economic screws on cuba if it's primitive you are
a stunt the u.s. national security adviser said the new restrictions would target cuba's military john bolton also tweeted the region's nations should condemn caracas russia's foreign ministry described bolton statement as crazy and inappropriate my gas you have takes a closer look at washington's role in south america. the united states is exceptional literally thou and by different rules to you and me of the nations states groups you see they have the right to decide who rules where like in venezuela they decide who is a dictator and who isn't they decide which dictators rule and which don't now and state supports any number of dictators who violate human rights including the leaders of egypt saudi arabia the u.a.e. do you not see that the united states support for other brutal dictators around the
world undermines the credibility of the argument you make no i don't think it does make it separate and i think look in this administration we're not afraid to use the phrase monroe doctrine. it's an odd chaotic nineteenth century policy that basically says new nation in the americas may be colonized by europeans out of bounds for europeans and everyone not from the americas a little later teddy roosevelt twisted this policy turned it inside out instead of protecting american nations the us now toppled governments it didn't like there now they've twisted it again now they think they can do this everywhere all over the world and he's a wella and a bill that legitimizes us meddling that terry quire threat assessment and strategy to counter russian influence in venezuela. in effect they're trying to justify
meddling in venezuela pogany because it's too friendly with russia and saying no not that that is who asked for it not even america's champ there but you don't see broad support for i believe that there is respectful participation of russia in regards to watching the fate of our country but the same goes for other countries that are paying attention here america knows better in syria half the world away it's the same story in syria the united states will use diplomacy and work with our partners to expel every last iranian brute and work through the un a process to bring peace and stability to the long suffering syrian people for the life of me i don't remember syrians asking the united states to get rid of iranians but america knows better africa too many chinese there thinks washington up to no good now is the time to boot them out
china uses bribes opaque agreements and the strategic use of debt to hold states in africa captive to beijing's wishes and demands goes without saying it wasn't the africans who asked for this in fact according to the latest gallup poll most africans approve of chinese investment plans leadership in africa but the united states knows better you know why because it's special exceptional better than you or me officially our mission is to reassert our sovereignty reform the liberal international order this is a unique exceptional country. imagine mr monreal would turn in his grave if he could see what his but nine policy protecting the weak from european.
colonizes what that has been turned into a license to kill to meddle to topple governments and politically burn the continent oh you've got to be special all right we have all sorts of recent cases libya syria iraq where u.s. intervention has essentially up literally any possibility of democracy but this is true throughout the decades that the united states has meddled in the affairs of america overthrowing one democratically elected government after another whether in one thousand nine hundred fifty four with our or the interventions that it carried out in the one nine hundred eighty s. supporting brutal military regimes in countries like yourselves or although venezuela is in the fight moment cuba nicaragua are also mentioned by figures like bolton in the same breath this is clearly a concerted effort to bring latin american countries once again under the iron

anonymity in a case that saw the u.k. government stripped him of his british citizenship back in twenty seventeen he was informed of the decision with this letter. it is assessed that you are a british pakistani jewel national whose travel to syria and is aligned to an al qaeda aligned group your return to the u.k. would present a risk to the national security over the united kingdom my decision has been taken in part reliance on information which in my opinion should not be made public in the interest of national security deemed a national security risk and twenty seventeen the man had been a media darling just a few years prior. she reads appearances on prominent news networks as well as dispatches via his live
updates from syria blog posts leftist political preferences no secret the reason why i came to syria is to help the syrian people who are being massacred by the bashar he rebels why do they do it the problem is is that the broad of of of the syrian regime is a force men and children and civilians that are facing the rest these individuals who take it we cannot take their word that they are that over there is aid workers because we know that these aid groups are operating in opposition held territory have only been operating with the kid can items and at the messy of some of the most grievous and force violent terrorist groups there's other nor so these aid workers so-called cannot x. kochi themselves from the activities of these groups because in and working in these opposition held areas controlled by these groups they are giving sanction to these opposition groups and sanction to their activities sharif's lawyer has been seeking evidence from the home office to find out why exactly his client was deemed
a threat meanwhile the home office has had this follow up on the specifics of the case we do not comment on in. vigil cases but any decisions to deprive individuals of the citizenship are based on available evidence and not taken lightly the issue of british citizenship being revoked has been in the spotlight in the u.k. recently due to a spike in terrorism and crime according to official figures more than one hundred people were stripped of their nationality in twenty seventeen compared to just fourteen the year before as sharif's appeal continues he maintains his innocence but the home office seems to have already made up its mind and not reporting for duty in london. a primary school in britain second city birmingham has reportedly caved into pressure on temporarily pull the plug on its l.g. bt lessons i thought the hundreds of parents reportedly kept their children at home
in protest polly boycott has the details. well the cause of this route is a educational diversity program called no outside isn't it a miss to teach kids about the different types of families that they might encounter and talking to them about things like the idea of having two mom or two dads and reading books to kids as young as four about the concept of same sex families a program was devised by the deputy head of the school at the center of this route his name's andrew marr fatton actually he's been nominated for the world's best teacher award take a look at him talking about the program mobley lula another cyclone both of them mostly nearly got some tissues on them back on our soil is about teaching to you are different you can still be friends with anybody there's
a huge going to. the schools we have to find ways to teach children to talk to counter them. but the majority of the parents at this school are on happy with andrew mohl fats teaching methods it's a predominantly muslim school and parents fundamentally disagree with the idea of teaching kids about homosexuality in l g b t issues some of our viewers might know that islam in islam homosexuality is forbidden so up until now the school had really held and said that they would continue this what they see as a very necessary diversity program but now a number of media outlets saying that the school has sent a letter to parents saying that the lessons are going to be stopped take a lesson up to the end of this term we will not be delivering any new outsiders lessons in our long term your curriculum plan as this often has already been blocked for religious education because you simply will continue as normal and
welcoming outside is would. this comes after protests last friday some six hundred parents said that they hadn't taken their kids to school that's eighty percent of the school's attendance of the school's pupils the school wouldn't confirm that number but these protests have been taking place for a while now ever since this route started and some of them have been pretty sizeable take a look. at. that . i'm prior to the protests taking place there had been a big school petition that some four hundred predominantly muslim parents had signed calling on the school to stop these lessons so this is clearly an issue that
is really riled up the parents in this school in the community i reported on the story from birmingham a couple of weeks ago and this is what the parents had to say to me it's not for the reappeared for the reception kids. want to homosexuals you should learn about your to old age not right now because you can easily get your parents did teach you kids no need to stay with boys and boys who doesn't agree this was a two hour live with the like it's because if you have to obviously clearly say you can't discriminate against religion and whatnot that's what they're doing it's ninety nine percent muslim it's not about being muslim that the jewish community the other communities the christian communities they're all have issues around the way things are being done now i've been in touch with some of those parents from the school and so far what i've heard is that this diversity program hasn't exactly been stopped it's more that it's been posed for this task and some of the
headlines would suggest that. it's sort of a big final ending to it that doesn't seem to be the case we've requested clarification from the school and we are still waiting for it but if the moment it looks that if the school sticks with this program and returns to it next or next year well it may well face the same protests all over again. the u.s. and nato are set to expand the naval presence in the black sea the news was confirmed by nato supreme allied commander in europe in an address to the u.s. senate on his piece of a small. u.s. general curtis scuppered altie is being giving testimony before the senate armed services committee now he was how to create a question put to him by the chair over the u.s. is deployment in the black sea region who is it targeting and was it sufficient in general scuppered ortiz view it needs more work both the united states and in nato
has stepped up its presence in the black sea do you think it's sending a clear message to president vladimir putin i think it is i mean a the frankly don't like us in the black sea and it's international waters and we should see a one fly there well scuppered or she isn't your common or garden general he also has a well he has quite a bit more power than not he's also the commander of the u.s. european command he's also the nato supreme allied commander and it was and what he's been asking for is for two navy destroyers to be sent into areas where they could be operational in the black sea they would be alongside four other u.s. navy destroyers that are currently stationed in spain it wasn't just russia though that came in the crosshairs of general scuffle rotty turkey a nato ally was also in for some some treatment from the nato supreme commander
and crew was basically put on notice and told that should it pursue buying russian air defenses well they could well find that their deliveries of f. thirty five fighter bombers from the u.s. going to write this is a huge decision for turkey it connection in many different ways to that to the to the. employment and the. integration and they have within the system itself the f. thirty five but also the f.m. national are systems that we we sold to turkey as well and so wide i would hope that they would rican. siddur this one decision on ash four hundred one system of blood potentially forfeit. many of the other systems and in the motion one of the most important systems at least. while the u.s. is a big part of the russian foreign ministry has put forward their thoughts on these statements from this u.s. general they say that any activity like this risks worsening the security
situation in the black sea and said that the black sea is all about cooperation well that cooperation from the u.s. side it would seem is that they want to send to washington into the region. this is absolutely against peace and cooperation is this is a sign of confrontation this is a sign of even in the last. minute actions against russia so it is definitely a bad sign it's absolutely a sign of the wrong direction and we need to peaceful black sea a peaceful black sea of cooperation between the different countries or all of those see us as they do is absolutely wrong way you know every approval cation has it can do against russia they're doing they're developing it even making strong other sanctions against russia they are sending more troops imagery equipment to the east part of russia they even discussing to storm you and your club that. this is to
try to develop a new way to visit russia with the big economic power of the nato countries and the u.s. in the weaker economic poets russia they really believe that they are stronger than russia and that they could get russia back on their side that they will russia give up their national interests and their own independent foreign policy i think this is it is losing by the nato countries and above all of the truck in this race believe this at least. eighty four people have been arrested in sacramento california while blocking a highway during a protest against police brutality demonstrators were voicing that decision not to prosecute two offices he fatally shot an unarmed black man last year seven clock was killed in his grandmother's backyard last march he was twenty two years old the
offices that they believe he was pointing a gun at them is that for men to police department has defended his actions at the latest protest saying it stepped in to protect the community. our commitment to our entire city is to make sure that we keep our community there in. potential protests give people the opportunity to express themselves also and historian gerald cohen believes the sacramental thirty's did have deliberately concealed the full details of the stuff and clocks her to it's well known that the police departments in the united states of america oftentimes fabricate evidence oftentimes fabricate allegations in order to rationalize and justify draconian measures such as arresting dozens of peaceful protesters the police or afraid of justice the police or afraid of being brought into court and prosecuted which is what should
happen the authorities in sacramento have been releasing all manner of damaging evidence about the victim those are the headlines for you this out we'll have that we'll be back at the top of the hour with the latest data. life expectancy in america is plummeting if you look at the chart it's shocking to look at almost every other country it's kind of inching up on one side of the chart and then as an outlier is the united states is the way over here it's all crashing down from the drugs from having junk food having junk culture having to junk politics and fake news it's all fake and fake doesn't sustain life and you see it in the numbers it's clear.
