We begin with the violent events in Virginia and the appalling action of a murderer which has been described as domestic terrorism. The discussion in the press evolves around responsibility, blaming the deplorable conduct and anti-black and anti-Semitic philosophy of white supremacists, neo-Nazis and hate-filled Ku Klux Klan members, while some, including President Trump, don’t forget to mention the violent militant radical left anti-Fascist movement.
Please view our new StandingWatch program, titled, “Charlottesville—Is Condemnation of Trump Justified?”
We also focus on a very controversial attempt by the US Justice Department to undermine individual privacy, liberty and freedom.
Following President Trump’s announcement of potential military action in Venezuela, attention has been drawn to the events in that South-American country, while the looming threat of a nuclear confrontation between America and North Korea has not really diminished. Questions are being raised who, if anybody, would actually support the USA militarily in case of war.
We focus on former German Chancellor Gerhard Schröder’s rehabilitation in Germany, while he continues his dubious role as a high-ranking director of Russia’s largest oil company. As a close friend to Vladimir Putin, he strongly criticizes Donald Trump, as does Angela Merkel’s challenger, Martin Schulz. We also address the anticipated success of Germany’s “far-right” AfD Party in the parliamentary election in September.
We speak on another terror attack in Spain and America’s and Britain’s role as the biggest arms dealers in the world, and address ongoing discussions pertaining to a European army and the future of a “dictatorial” Europe.
We point at Satan’s role in the commitment of capital crimes, and Pope Francis’s correct warning against astrology and fortune telling.
We conclude with two articles dealing with the spread of tropical diseases through mosquitos and aggressive behavior of hornets, wasps and bees in Europe.
Throughout this section, we have underlined pertinent statements in the quoted articles, for the convenience and quick overview of the reader.
