Current Events

by Norbert Link

We begin with ongoing troublesome conflicts with Iran, involving both the USA and the UK; and a brewing conflict between these two allies over America’s “Operation Sentinel” and Britain’s initiative of a European “maritime protection mission.” We report on the appointment of Britain’s new Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, and his uncertain future course of action regarding Europe and Brexit. Please view in this context our new StandingWatch program, “Europe, Britain and the USA… How Prophecy Moves On!”

We also speak on tensions between the USA and Turkey. We report on interesting comments by Vladimir Putin regarding Russia and Ukraine and address Donald Trump’s reelection in 2020; the Mueller hearing; and a controversial bipartisan deal on increasing federal spending. We also speak on the mistrust of the vast majority of Americans regarding their government and the news media.

We report on turmoil in America’s unincorporated territory, Puerto Rico, and in the former British colony, Hong Kong, as well as hardship in Zimbabwe, formerly known as Rhodesia when it was under British colonial rule until 1964.

We continue with the ongoing deteriorating relationship between Donald Trump and Germany, under Angela Merkel, and between President Trump and Europe, under EU’s new Commission President, German Ursula von der Leyen. Our new StandingWatch program, “Europe, Britain and the USA… How Prophecy Moves On!”, comments on this situation as well.  We address the prospects of a devastating trade war between Europe and the USA. We also speak on the 75th anniversary of the assassination attempt on Adolf Hitler and the concern that Austria might become a totalitarian state.

We conclude with Europe’s failed migrant rescue efforts with little hope that the devastating situation of migrants drowning in the Mediterranean Sea will be resolved any time soon; and heated controversies in Israel about comments pertaining to homosexuality.

Throughout this section, we have underlined pertinent statements in the quoted articles, for the convenience and quick overview of the reader.
