u.s. launches a new strategy to counter what he calls the kremlin's malign influence drawing a sharp response from moscow which has branded the initiative the russian propaganda also it. for now. alex gale a 6 year old boy in the u.s. state of texas is caught up in a bitter custody battle between the boy's parents who concert in which gender their child should be identified as we hear from the father. so i consider this to be child abuse and the sexual mutilation of children on a on an industrial scale so it makes me feel terrible i can't believe that a mother would do this song. live from moscow to the world this is r.t. international warm welcome to the program. our top story. the u.k.
foreign office has ordered an inquiry into the leak of sensitive diplomatic cables penned by britain's ambassador to washington in a series of bombshell remarks president donald trump's white house is described as an empty dysfunctional among many other old floundering comments made by the diplomat a partridge in a story this is the story of a foreign office inquiry into a series of leaks mess 42 year career in diplomacy but some of these e-mails ended up in the mail on sunday the british newspaper and in those memos he gave a candid and damning assessment of the trumpet ministration. we don't really believe this administration is going to become substantially more normal less dysfunctional less and predictable less faction ribbon less diplomatically clumsy and inept also came also called into question donald trump's publicly stated reason for calling often asked right on terror on or following the downing of the us drone by iran trump said that he was 10 minutes away from making that command but called
it off because there would be 150 casualties but secant says it was actually a question of policy and trying harking back to his campaign promise i'm not allowing more u.s. troops to go into foreign wars it's more likely that he was never fully onboard and that he was worried about how this apparent reversal of his 2016 campaign promises would look come 2020 at the next presidential election well in response to these emails and the revelations trump was clearly unimpressed but restrained in his comments. without a doubt. well the response from the u.k. has been rather mixed the trade secretary liam fox focused on the leak itself said it was unethical unpatriotic unprofessional and the person behind them was maliciously trying to undermine the relationship between the u.k. and the u.s.
whereas other politicians concentrated on the content of the e-mails and the author itself this was a personal view it's not the view of the british government it's not my view we continue to think under president trump the us administration is not just highly effective but the best possible friend of the united kingdom on the international stage i think it is very important that ambassadors give honest unvarnished advice to their country and it is disgraceful that it has been leaked from the moment trump was elected this man was their own person to be the british ambassador the globalist an hour. totally opposed to the tom dick 3 the sooner who's gone the better well the leak comes at a key time for the u.k. is it looks to boost its trade with the u.s. following breaks it remains to be seen if this blush in diplomacy will have an effect on the special relationship and the post breaks it economy i spoke to all of our miles all of us a former u.k. ambassador for an office of fish will he give us his thoughts on what the links
mean for bilateral relations between london and washington. the leak is very embarrassing because it's going to make the i must of this lot for all the difficult parts of his job only part of his job but part of his job is dealing with the president and the media with the white house team and so on and clearly there's going to be a degree of embarrassment perhaps not but it's a risk but there will be a degree of embarrassment and so of the bad news from that point of view on the whole in most cases i've been involved in leak investigations law itself the leak tends to come from the top and i would guess that if this is political role of the possible or i'm just incompetent many times in the post in fact probably more often than not. very senior jobs like washington like paris like new york the united nations sometimes like moscow these very senior jobs have in the past been given. what we call political point of substance to say putting in somebody
who is in some other way qualified for the job not from the professional diplomatic service wouldn't be unusual that wouldn't be surprising. protests erupted overnight in the georgian capital tbilisi after the host of an opposition t.v. channel there launched into an obscene instant tirade against putin and his the cease parents live in or. the kind of language that this anchor used you don't hear it on t.v. at all because that was swear words after a swear word you know some of the most nasty words that there are in the russian language i have to point out that this rant was in russian against vladimir putin himself and also against his parents who are no longer alive and i can tell you that this video was all over the internet immediately i was having a quiet day with my friends when someone sent it to me and when then when i played it everyone was shocked because what they were hearing is there's life on there as
well as you pointed out i mean yes when the video was obviously a recording of that yeah it was on you tube but it was just so bad so very. georgian protesters in the georgian capital tbilisi started gathering in front of the channel's h.q. gets one of the most popular t.v. channels in georgia we even heard that some of the staff resigned almost immediately after that an outrage and it had to go off air for a few hours the bosses said it was because of some security concerns but now it's back on what about the government itself what has to place he said about this the most senior officials in georgia spoke out very quickly we heard from the president from the prime minister from the foreign ministry as well they are saying that these kind of insults have nothing to do with patriotism so let's listen to the exact words from the georgian leader georgia's president and the condemns hate speech verbal aggression insults and provoked her statements made today a new study to t.v.
they go against old georgian traditions sort of only to divide and race tensions in the country with russia and in the region you what about the reaction from moscow what's their reaction the russian government officials are obviously disappointed there saying that this is nothing but another display of verse of so let's listen to bits of the statements from the russian president's spokesperson and also from the russian foreign ministry as to cause it's a country it's not as for the insults against both our country and our president we of course consider them to be totally unacceptable and we strongly condemn them and we know that the entire leadership of georgia president prime minister parliamentarians and the speaker of parliament have strongly condemned this we see this as another clear provocation by radical forces in georgia and undermining of russia georgia relations the current laden incident is a vivid example of where frantic brosseau fabia can lead it give us 91 way in the
1st place said georgian t.v. host as you say a very popular. program on a popular channel would insult in such a way the president of another country was it a one off incident this for instance we have to understand that at this point the relations between russia and former soviet republic toward you know which is russia's southern neighbor are in turmoil and it has been like that for a few weeks right now and. what georgians see as a very serious incident in the republic's parliament there was an event for m.p.'s of orthodox christian countries was an international event where a russian member of parliament was giving a speech and he sat somewhere where usually the speaker of the georgian parliament is sad and that sparked outrage in that country it led to ultra violent riots in front of the parliament. there was one in the streets and in response to that
moscow had to suspend direct flights between the 2 countries we know that there are a lot of russian tourists that had to georgia they were fearing that this could lead to possibly violence against russian citizens because we heard a new wave busy of slogans and russian rhetoric from politicians so the russian government was expecting that these kind of measures could really hit the wall it's probably the owners of georgian hotels or businessmen in the tourist industry so definitely the tensions are there and this is probably another example of this hate speech by an anchor of georgian t.v. we watched. a story generating a lot of interest. in the u.s. state of texas has been caught up in a bitter custody battle between his divorced mother father and the fact that his parents can't agree on which gender their child should be identified makes the case
even more complicated. but your boy right now. when with is mother the boy known as james lives as a girl named luna the mother refers to james exclusively as her face it was the child who expressed an interest in wearing girl's clothes she even enroll james in school under the female name r t o's so we should not say spoke to his father jeff younger you can watch the full version throughout the day here in order to. i took it very seriously because i had to some information what i was still living with with and george wallace my my ex-wife had been putting him into ready timeouts and saying things like the monsters only eat boys ready and some things like that he said mommy tells me i'm a girl. and i would ask him you know do you look like a girl and say no but mommy tells me i'm a girl i just wanted to verify and i sent her
a text and you know are you actually telling james that he's a girl and she's just replied simply yes and then refused to talk to me about it you know he's never presented himself as a girl to me ever that he factor with me he violently rejects any female identity he won't wear female clothes he won't even wear boy's brief underwear because he says it's too much like girls underwear i believe he dresses by his own will when he's with his mother i just don't think he believes the show love him if he's a boy father has long been fighting for his son to be treated as a boy the sex he was born and jeff younger has not been accused by his ex-wife of abusing their child for not affirming in the transgendered for cutting his hair short as well. the father has an emotionally abusive behavior towards the checkout as example only hair cut to and other non affirmative actions although on cle have these behavior rises to the level of family violence at this time the father said ration is becoming more common and more intense the temporary orders that i'm under before you go to final trial actually do allow me to address them as james and use
male pronouns but i cannot do that in front of 3rd parties who know him as a girl so basically i can't go to school i keep him away from any friends he might have at school that know him as a girl and at my home he's known as james and i use male pronouns what i'm prohibited from doing right now is trying to convince him that he's actually a boy one of the big problems that that i'm going to face eventually is in the state of taxes right now the courts position is that all of this is medical child support. so i have to pay for him to go to you know a therapist who's teaching him that he's a girl i have to pay for the hormone suppression of puberty which actually chemically castrate boys and prevents the growth of their sexual organs and if he goes on to a surgical transition would be medical child support as well i'd have to pay for that i consider this to be child abuse and the sexual mutilation of children on a on an industrial scale so i'm not paying for any of this i'm not going to
participate in the abuse my son and anyway if this all of course comes a specialist debate whether children should be allowed to change their gender at such a young age sociologist frank freddy believes parents should not impose gender choices on their offspring i think it's wrong for parents to become preoccupied by gender identity it's not something that the vast majority of children ever think about very much it's not something that they experiment with to begin with i think that the danger today is is that we have a very strong political and cultural pressure on the part of parents to be much more relaxed about the boundaries that used to exist between boys and girls and as the boundaries of questions so a lot of parents get confused ok the news keeps rolling and this monday afternoon in moments they with art interest.
so the temporary orders that i'm under before i go to final trial actually do allow me to address them as james and his male pronouns but i cannot do that in front of 3rd parties who know him as a girl so basically i can't go to a school i keep them away from any friends he might have at school but known as a girl at my home he's known as james and i use male pronouns when i'm prohibited from doing right now is trying to convince him that he's actually a boy. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president and she. wanted. to go on to the press that's one
of the 43 in the morning she'd be good. interested always in the waters of the. city. 60 minutes into the program welcome back country kremlin influence outside the u.s. agency for international development house called a new strategy to help european countries avoid side meddling and reduce their dependence on russian energy and. russian propaganda our senior correspondent. goes through the plan. usaid has unveiled a new plan a strategy officially aimed at boosting the resilience of part the nation's
unofficial it appears to mean giving lots and lots of money to anyone that vocally and demonstrably doesn't like russia politicians businessmen media i mean it's in the name countering my line kremlin influence plan. these efforts will include creating tools for reform minded leaders and civil society voices to tackle corrupt government practices that kremlin agents often selectively exploit for moscow strategic benefit 1st off the us apparently wants to cut out russia's voice i mean the aims aren't exactly veg what could they mean preventing russia others from meddling in elections ok preventing russia from lobbying for its interests negotiating not ok it works both ways i mean
we know what some of the reform minded leaders and civil society voices in the us are like. us eats funding will build the capacity of indigenous media to provide trusted independent news and information sources should be fine and all of america's own independent news and media weren't viewed as biased by its own people trust in the media is still a business americans believe it's biased it's even worse for online media by the way remember when facebook hired death checa linked to the us government poynter institute for media studies to filter out unreliable sources and they ended up filtering out opposing political views before they were caught at my point why don't they spend that cash on making america's own media but leave
a ball. to reduce your opinion regis dependency on russia u.s. sees assistance will include working with individual states to create effective legal and regulatory frameworks and assisting them to join will function in local and regional energy markets. there it is the crux of it hiding in plain sight american shale over russian gas more expensive more cumbersome more political yet it's full of freedom freedom gas they said that i have no idea how they do it with a straight face. increasing export capacity from the freeport l.n.g. project is critical to spreading freedom gas throughout the world by giving america's allies a diverse and affordable source of clean energy with the u.s. in another year of record setting natural gas production i'm pleased that the
department of energy is doing what it can to promote an efficient regulatory system that allows for molecules of u.s. freedom to be exported to the world it's a whole package money to the media which cries russian wolf money to politicians who get the american way money to lobbyists and get a nice little kickback from selling american gas and moscow of course isn't happy the term countering is a clumsy attempt to conceal the aggressive offensive approach this conception is blatantly aimed at propagating risa phobia in the world especially in neighboring countries to russia on our side we have proven multiple times that we are open to a stop wishing constructive cooperation with the us on a basis of equality of rights and the consideration of mutual interests however malicious and the russian propaganda by washington which strikes but lobel domination cancels out these efforts it's a great pity by the way saving best the last you know why usaid was expelled
from russia 7 years ago why for an election meddling fiasco that for that became a big thing now isn't that ironic unfortunately a mentality took took hold of the establishment in washington early after the demise of the soviet union that there could only be one global superpower in the united the united states had to have had germany over the entire world and not just russia russia specifically but not just russia china iran venezuela any country that doesn't come crawling to on hands and knees in front of washington and to kiss the ring is regarded as a quote threat. and since russia is the foremost military power that is not under the control of the united states and that's why we've seen things like the expansion of nato and something like this which is kind of a and information analogue to nato expansion which is to try to ensure domination of europe and to isolate russia as much as possible.
barrister cherie blair the wife of former u.k. prime minister tony blair has appeared in artie's going underground to discuss her role in a frantic legal battle after she helped release a russian business woman who is facing a decade of hard labor in kuwait. somebody convicted and absconded marcia who's been under investigation this has been hanging over their head and since 2012 she's been actively pursued by the authorities since 2015 so much so that she's been on bail when she was on bail and her american green card expired she wasn't able to go and go to the states become fiction was actually overturned in may and why was it overturned because it was based on fraud and indeed forged evidence and she had not been given the opportunity to put her side
of the case so the trial actually was a travesty did not comply with fair trial procedures and finally the court of appeal in kuwait did overturn that decision so she isn't currently on bail awaiting trial there was a big conference here about our british investments and there was a general ease about what was happening to foreign investors in the gulf in relation to the criminalize ation of what is essentially commercial disputes and essentially fights between commercial companies for lucrative gulf contracts and we believe that this is that marsh if you like is collateral damage in a wider buy every between local firms for lucrative gulf contracts.

told you that he was a girl what was your reaction i mean where you taken aback did you take it seriously i took it very seriously because i had to some information what i was still living with with and george wallace my my ex-wife had been putting him into timeouts and saying things like the monsters only eat boys ready and some odd things like that so when i heard this i took it very seriously he said mommy tells me i'm a girl. and i would ask him you know do you look like a girl and say no but mommy tells me i'm a girl you know he's never presented himself as a girl to me ever that he factor with me he violently rejects any female identity he won't wear female clothes he won't even wear boys' brief underwear because he says it's too much like girls underwear so he's basically leaving the bipolar life right now he's a boy when he's with you and he's what forced to dress like
a girl or does he dress like a girl but my his own will when he's with a mom i believe he dresses by his own will when he's with his mother i just don't think he believes the show love him if he's a boy but he dresses as a boy in her house as well does she somehow tell him not to dress as a boy if you want to dress a boy. i've only been in public with him as a girl on twice and on both cases when i brought boys clothes his mother was extremely disapproving and in one case. hole to mount of my arms and i had to let him go so they wouldn't get her so that he wouldn't be allowed to put on boy's clothes seguin's told you he knows that she disapproves of it strongly james told you that his mother dresses him and girls closing uses hair clips puts nail polish on him was that was my immediate reaction would be to get in touch with his
mom and ask why you do that why i was what was an explanation did you have to talk about it. well 1st of all i just wanted to verify and i sent her a text and you know are you actually telling james that he's a girl and she's just replied simply yes and then refused to talk to me about it. then the next time that it became an issue was when when he had his sort of coming out party she took him to his 5th birthday party in a dress she just essentially wouldn't speak to me about it but is it normal that because you are just as much a parent as she is is it normal that yes as an answer and off for for for your son to be heading towards a gender change no it's absolutely not normal i'm a joint managing conservatory in texas and that means that we share parental rights but there was one key parental right.
