Current Events

We begin with the surprising announcement by German President Gauck that he will not run for re-election, causing further potential problems for Chancellor Angela Merkel and her government.

We report on the planned ISIS attack in Düsseldorf, Germany, which would have been much bigger than originally thought; and focus on strong comments by Germany’s anti-immigration party, the AfD. We also report on the true scale of Germany’s migrant crisis.

We continue with the ongoing troubles between Germany and Turkey; the legal challenge of Austria’s recent presidential election results; news regarding Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, with a strongly worded article, asking whether the Obama Administration is guilty of war crimes; and Europe’s relationship with Britain in view of a possible Brexit. In this context, please view our new StandingWatch program, titled, “What if Britain Leaves Europe?”.

We speak on China’s suppression of Ramadan celebrations; Poland’s paramilitary force to counter Russia; Russia’s “effective, advanced” submarines; rewards from the Philippine government for intentionally killing criminals, rather than arresting them; and legally permitted assisted suicide in Canada and other countries.

We conclude with Jewish acceptance of transgender and homosexual rights; and the Catholic Church’s fascination with the Virgin Mary.
