Current Events

by Norbert Link

We begin with reports on the election of Ursula von der Leyen as the new president of the European Commission and Angela Merkel’s appointment of Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer (AKK) as Germany’s new Defense Minister, as well as British and German reactions; speak on a proposed law to make measles vaccinations mandatory in Germany; the rift between Turkey and the USA and Europe; heightened tensions with Iran; US ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell; the military celebrations and their meaning during Bastille Day; and Russia’s alleged thirst for regional wars in Europe. We also speak on the find of a missile and other sophisticated weapons in the hands of Italian extremists.

We report on recent developments and their consequences pertaining to President Trump’s tweets on “progressive Democratic congresswomen” (in this regard, please view our new StandingWatch program, “Trump’s Reelection Is Assured!”);  and we point at Trump’s unwelcome and highly controversial criticism of Bitcoin.

We address the ever-increasing abnormal frequency of major earthquakes around the world; and we quote from articles about Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel’s longest-serving Prime Minister; an alleged movement to destroy the Dome of the Rock and Al-Aqsa mosque to prepare for the Third Temple; and rabbinic condemnation of all dogs and their owners.
