In this issue, we report on the increasingly dire Brexit situation and Europe’s impatience with Great Britain. Please view our new StandingWatch program, “The End of the British Empire… Time to Let Britain Go!”
We speak on Angela Merkel’s astonishing admission of powerful European weapons systems; America’s fear of hostile military actions from Russia, China, North Korea and Iran; and Russia’s employment of missiles and troops close to the Ukrainian border. We also address the volatile situation in Venezuela and report on the controversial Iran deal.
We continue with articles analyzing President Trump’s first two years in office, fearing that “worse and crazier things are to come”; controversial reports and denials of the Trump campaign’s alleged collusion with Russia; and an attempt by President Trump to end the governmental shutdown by offering, among other proposals, three year DACA and TPS extensions in exchange for a border wall with Mexico, which led to the immediate and expected rejection from uncooperative Democrats and mean-spirited attacks from rightwing anti-Immigrant Republicans. Further attempts by Republicans and Democrats to end the shutdown failed as well.
We conclude with articles on worldwide anti-Semitism and huge amounts of lost and wasted food in prosperous Canada.
Throughout this section, we have underlined pertinent statements in the quoted articles, for the convenience and quick overview of the reader.
