We begin with the devastating election debacle of UK Prime Minister Theresa May; her struggle to stay in power; and the potential negative consequences for Britain’s negotiations with Europe over Brexit (Please view our new StandingWatch program, “Why Britain’s Election Debacle?” ). At the same time, we observe French President Emmanuel Macron’s overwhelming election victory which will enable him to carry out plans to make the EU more successful. Another article shows that a most powerful European army IS coming; and we also focus on developments in The Netherlands.
The controversy over President Trump’s fight with former FBI director James Comey continues and observers are taking sides as to who might be lying; Attorney General Jeff Session’s testimony did not accomplish much to establish clarity; a new report alleges that President Trump is now under criminal investigation for obstruction of justice; and disputed reports emerged that President Trump might cancel any visits in the UK for fear of and anger about demonstrations against him. Another court rules against President Trump’s travel ban; and conflicting messages from President Trump and Secretary of State Tillerson over Qatar and Iran’s and Turkey’s involvement make the situation in the Middle East highly unpredictable.
We report on Angela Merkel’s visit in Mexico and her praise for the German army; on the perception that it is Germany’s role to lead Europe; and on violence in the Philippines and the Philippine government’s unclear stance towards America’s assistance in their fight against “Muslim militants”.
We continue with articles about violence on the Temple Mount; the position of the Israeli people on gay marriage and Tel Aviv’s annual gay parade; smoking; parents being charged with murder for refusing to give medical assistance to their child; the danger of the daily use of Aspirin; Attorney General Session’s fight against medical marijuana; the threat emerging from driverless cars and drones; and the major threat from asteroids.
We conclude with articles about the Pope’s claim for unquestioned obedience; and the false doctrine of the Trinity.
Throughout this section, we have underlined pertinent statements in the quoted articles, for the convenience and quick overview of the reader.
