We begin with very troublesome and highly significant discussions about reinstating the military draft in Germany and making the country a nuclear power [note our new StandingWatch program, “Germany Goes Nuclear?”]; and we report on the economic boom of that country.
We continue with the worldwide perception of the USA being a major threat; the potential of cyberattacks against the USA; and the ongoing and escalating trade war. In this context, a compelling parallel is being drawn between the policies of former British Chancellor Neville Chamberlain and US President Donald Trump. We also address new US sanctions on Russia and Iran and Europe’s response.
We are also speaking of anarchy in Oregon; money-laundering measures leading to total governmental control [please view our recent StandingWatch program, “Do Banks and the Government Control You?”]; a controversial law in Florida which raises concerns of unjustified governmental surveillance; another move by major global technology companies to restrict and suppress free speech; and the legitimate concern that innocent defendants plead guilty due to coercion.
We continue with Israel’s false pride in “pride parades”; governmental attacks on white farmers in South Africa; North Korea’s attempts to clone people for their army; chaos in Venezuela following a suspicious “attack” on Venezuela’s far-left President; a deadly earthquake in Indonesia, which sits on the “Ring of Fire”; and terrible persecutions of Christians in India.
Throughout this section, we have underlined pertinent statements in the quoted articles, for the convenience and quick overview of the reader.
