We begin with most spectacular events in Austria and its uncertain future in light of the collapse of the Austrian coalition government following the publication of a secretly-taped video just prior to the European elections, picturing Vice-Chancellor Strache and others in a very compromising light; Strache’s resignation and the subsequent resignation of all FPO ministers in protest to Chancellor Sebastian Kurz; the appointment of “apolitical” experts as a temporary new caretaker government; an announcement that new elections would be held in September; and Chancellor Sebastian Kurz facing a no-confidence vote next week.
We also report on the ongoing Brexit disaster and the anti-Americanism and anti-Semitism of Jeremy Corbyn, leader of Britain’s Labour Party.
Please see in this regard our new StandingWatch program, “Are Anti-Semitism and Anti-Americanism Connected?”
We continue with the European elections; increasingly strained relationships between the USA and Europe, due to stalled or failing tariffs negotiations; and the conflict between the USA and China, as well as Iran.
We speak on America’s worldwide fight against abortion (please view our new StandingWatch program, titled, “When Does God Allow Abortions?”); a somewhat surprisingly controversial stance by President Trump regarding same-sex marriages; and his unfortunate desire to change the immigration system to the detriment of parents of US citizens.
We speak on India’s and Pakistan’s military contacts with Russia; India’s election results; challenges in Ukraine; the unexpected victory of Australia’s Prime Minister Scott Morrison; and the challenge to prevent the near-extinction of the Koala bear. We also publish a warning against the consumption of pork.
