6:01 pm
bright welcome to the program 1st off and president trump has said that he will no longer work with the british ambassador to the united states so you can direct could now become the 1st u.k. envoy to be expelled from washington in more than a century after a league team in which he described trump and dysfunctional is kind of morbid. washington will be cutting its ties with british ambassador kim derek now this comes on the heels of a damning assessment of the trumpet ministration in the leaked diplomatic cables which have just recently been made public here's what donald trump had to say in response to these leaks regarding critical statements about the white house. i do not know the embassador but he's not life who will follow within the us will no longer deal with him the good news for the wonderful united kingdom is that they will soon have a new prime minister and now these diplomatic cables have been leaked to the
6:02 pm
british press and they reveal some rather interesting statements now we have a game kim derek saying that the trump white house radiates in security we also have it referring to the trump presidency as one that would crash and burn and we also have him referring to trump as inept and dysfunctional the comments go on from there this is another selection we don't really believe this administration is going to become substantially more normal less dysfunctional less and predictable less fiction ribbon less diplomatically clumsy and now in addition we also have kim derek referring to the policy of the white house toward iran he refers to it as unlikely to become more coherent any time soon and he also refers to all hawkish hardliners within the trump white house and its relations with iran this is this is some of what was also in the cables it's more likely that he was never a loon boards and that he was worried about how this apparently some of his 2016
6:03 pm
campaign promises would come 2020 and the next presidential election now we've had a strong reaction from the united kingdom theresa may has come forward and said she had full faith in derek and that she did not agree with his characterization however it was pointed out by the united kingdom and by u.k. officials that their ambassadors are expected to give an honest and unvarnished assessment of politics in the country they are doing diplomatic relations with in these confidential cables now the u.k. international trade secretary liam fox he said that he found these remarks in the cables to be an ethical and unpatriotic and that when he meets with yvonne could try. up the president's daughter he will give her an apology in person so in addition to that some of the brags that backing u.k. politicians have criticized their statements which essentially seem to be representing the nation of britain now that they are in the public eye this is what
6:04 pm
has been said 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 of u.s. 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 to globalist an outlook totally opposed to the term took 3 the sooner his gone the better now as these comments are now circulating in the press after being made public it seems that u.k. officials are looking to determine who leaked to them and how they became available to the press at the moment it seems pretty clear however that donald trump will not be working with kim derrick any time soon so with that in mind former british diplomat all of
6:05 pm
a mile give us his thoughts on what the league might now mean for bilateral relations between london and washington. the leak is very embarrassing because it's going to make the ambassador's life for all the difficult part of his job only part of his job but part of his job is dealing with the president and is immediate with the white house team and so on that clearly there's going to be a degree of embarrassment perhaps not very serious 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 and i've been involved in leak investigations myself the leak tends to mostly come from the top and i would guess that if this is political role of the possible or i'm just incompetence many times in the past 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. the what we call political point of the sentence to say putting in
6:06 pm
somebody who is in some other way qualified for the job not from the professional diplomatic service that wouldn't be unusual that wouldn't be surprising. protests have taken place for a 2nd consecutive nights in the georgian capital tbilisi over a t.v. hosts caustic insult filled tirade against the russian president the presenter who works for a popular opposition station that he made putin and his deceased mother live on and on sunday shocking viewers in both countries a correspondent joining you know nail area with more on the story. 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
6:07 pm
it everyone was shocked because what they were hearing is there's life on there as well as from a point that i mean yes but you know the video was obviously a recording of that yeah it was on you tube but it was just so bad so very quickly georgian protesters and the georgian capital tbilisi started gathering in front of the channel's h.q. it's one of the most popular t.v. channels and ga 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 police 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 dividing the country into 2 camps and inside
6:08 pm
an external confrontation and tension in the region is unacceptable for us is it up or of a cation aimed at a new war or revenge for the failed coup this was an action taken against our country and you what about the reaction from what's their reaction russian government officials are obviously disappointed there saying that this is nothing but another display of the fold so let's listen to bits of the statements from the russian president's spokesperson and also from the russian for. ministry has to close its 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
6:09 pm
a vivid example of where frantic brosseau phobia can lead it give us an idea why in the 1st place a 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 phrase that 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 after 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
6:10 pm
front of the parliament would lead to arrests there was a line 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 the russian citizens because we heard a new wave of anti russian slogans and russian rhetoric from georgian politicians so the russian government was expecting that these kind of men. really hit the wall it's probably the owners of. hotels or businessmen in the tourist industry so definitely the tensions are out there and this is probably another example this hate speech by an anchor of georgian t.v. . very sense though that the georgian journalist who went rogue on t.v. live on sunday night has now been suspended from his position for 2 months.
6:11 pm
countering that malign kremlin influence that's how the u.s. agency for international development has called a new strategy to help european countries avoid outside meddling and reduce their dependence on russian energy moscow's branded it anti russian propaganda our senior correspondent i guess they have takes us 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
6:12 pm
selectively exploit for moscow strategic benefit 1st off and the us apparently wants to cut out russia's voice i mean the aims aren't exactly vague what could they mean preventing russia others from meddling in elections ok venting 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
6:13 pm
a business americans believe it's biased it's even worse for online media by the way remember when facebook hired the fact checker 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
6:14 pm
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 it's a whole package money to the media which cries russian wolf money to politicians who get the american way money to lobbyists they get a nice little kick back from selling american gas and moscow 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 by the way saving best the last you know why u.s. aid was expelled from russia 7 years ago why for an election meddling fiasco that
6:15 pm
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 gemini over the entire world and sense 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 i and information analogue to nato expansion which is to try to ensure domination of europe and to isolate russia as much as possible. next a 7 year old boy in the u.s. state of texas has been caught up in a bitter custody battle between his divorced mother and father his parents can't agree on which gender that child should be identified as your boy right now.
6:16 pm
carol. when he's with his mother the boy called james lives as a girl named luna the mother refers to james exclusively as her and says it was the child who expressed an interest in wearing girls' clothes she even rolled the youngster in school with the female name artie's sophie shevardnadze spoke to the child's father jeff younger and you can watch the full interview on r.t. dot com. 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 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
6:17 pm
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 the father has for some time now been fighting for his son to be treated as a boy the gender that he was born with jeff young has been accused by his ex-wife of abusing that child for not offending him as transgender and for cutting his hatchell. the father has an emotionally abusive behavior towards the checkout as example only haircuts and other non affirming actions all the wrong clee of these behavior rises to the level of family violence at this time the father said russian 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 his male pronouns but i cannot do that in front of 3rd parties who know him as
6:18 pm
a girl so basically i can't go to school i keep them away from any friends he might have at school that know him as a girl and in 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 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 onto a surgical transition that 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 abuse of my son in any way. well this comes as specialists debate
6:19 pm
whether children should be allowed to change their gender at such a young age so she ologist a frank furedi believes parents shouldn't 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 are questioned so a lot of parents get confused. british barrister cherie blair the wife of former u.k. prime minister tony blair has been talking to r.t. is going underground about her role in a frantic legal battle after she helped release a russian businesswoman facing
6:20 pm
a decade of hard labor in kuwait martial law moved her business operations to the middle east to 15 years ago and 2017 she was accused of embezzling nearly half a $1000000000.00 by kuwait where she worked for an investment company she was jailed for $470.00 days until her release in may this year after the evidence against it was found to be fake a case garnered wide media coverage especially on our sister channel r.t. arabic and also got the attention of high profile politicians and lawyers in the united states and russia. played a key role in her release and you can watch the interview and for right now on r.t. don't calm. somebody's convicted and absconded marcia who's been under investigation this is been hanging over her 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 merican green card expired she wasn't able to go and go. to the states because fiction is actually overturned in may and why was it overturned
6:21 pm
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.
