Mike Flynn’s New Lawyers Want His Sentencing Trial Dismissed

President Trump told the press he fired John Bolton. Mr. Trump said Bolton is a warmonger. Trump said he disagrees with Bolton’s approach to Iran and North Korea. Bolton didn’t want Trump to meet with the Taliban. But Trump wanted to show his voter base he could bring American troops home from Afghanistan on his own. His failed Camp David meeting with the Taliban was another Trump attempt to do things his way, according to the New York Times.

Mr. Bolton version of his firing didn’t match Trump’s account of the meeting the two men had the night before Trump announced Bolton’s exit. Bolton told Trump he planned to resign, but the president told him to sleep on it, and they would discuss his resignation in the morning. According to Bolton, his morning meeting with Trump never happened.

Mr. Trump got rid of three national security advisors in three years because they disagreed with his shoot-from-the-hit decision-making process. Now that Bolton’s out, the president can act like the security advisor through the Trumpian he names to replace Bolton. The Trump Administration is a group of Trump yes-men who do whatever it takes to make the Trumpster happy, according to the New York Times.

Eighty-year-old Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross is a good example of the incompetence that runs through the White House like the plague, according to the Post. Ross threatened to fire the people at NOAA who disagreed with Trump’s claim that Dorian would impact Alabama. The president spent six days defending his Hippy Dippy Weatherman weather report before NOAA threw the National Weather Service scientists a curveball and agreed with Trump’s Alabama weather prediction.

Japan’s Prime Minister Abe wants to stop Trump from adding additional tariffs to Japanese autos and trucks so Abe told Trump Japan would buy tons of corn from American farmers. But Japanese agriculture officials claim Japan doesn’t need the corn. Japan has enough corn even though Abe told the press pests ate the Japanese corn crop this year.

Mike Flynn, the first Trump campaign official to plead guilty to inappropriate conversations with the Russian ambassador in 2016, will receive his sentence in December. According to Time.com, prosecutors told the judge to go easy and just give Flynn probation. But Flynn hired a new group of lawyers, and they want the judge to throw the case out.

Flynn’s lawyers say the Mueller investigation was an illegal debacle, and they accused prosecutors of misconduct. But the chance of Flynn getting a get-out-of-jail-free card is slim, according to the Times.

Lawyer Dies Of Cancer While Working On A Malpractice Case

Katrina Dennis was an attorney who recently died from breast cancer. She had recently sued her doctor for medical malpractice. She was scheduled to appear in Baltimore County Circuit Court last week, but she was too sick to attend. Katrina was seeking $24 million in damages.

Katrina was diagnosed with breast cancer back in 2015. She was 36-years-old at the time. She has ductal carcinoma, which is a form of cancer that is found in the milk ducts. It is estimated that 20 percent of breast cancers are ductal carcinoma.

Surgery is the most common treatment used for ductal carcinoma. Katrina hired an attorney named Robert Weltchek. She stated that her doctor was negligent in care. She also said that her doctor did not push for Tomoxifen, which is a drug that would have prevented the cancer from spreading and re-growing.

The name of Katrina’s doctor is Dr. Michael Schultz. Dr. Schulz has hired his own attorneys. The attorneys state that Dr. Schultz did everything that he could to provide quality care. They also stated that the doctor tested Katrina to see if the cancer had spread to other parts of the body.

Katrina went to an urgent care center back in 2017 because she had back pain. She later went to an emergency room and found out that the cancer had spread to her bones, blood and organs. Michael Schwartzberg is a spokesman for St. Joseph, which is the clinic that Katrina was treated at. He said that he is deeply saddened by her death.

Katrina was a graduate of the University of Baltimore School of Law. She was active on student life committees during the time that she was a student. Linda Gooden, who is the chair of the Board of Regents for the University of Baltimore, stated that Katrina fought a long, hard battle and will be missed.

Former White House Counsel For Barack Obama, Greg Craig, Found Not Guilty Of Lying To The Federal Government After Two-And-A-Half-Week Trial

Barack Obama served the United States as its 44th president from 2009 to 2017. One thing that all presidents of the United States do soon after being inaugurated is elect members to their Cabinet, which includes people to lead the most important federal government agencies in the nation.

One other position that is part of the president’s Cabinet is White House Counsel. Even though Obama worked as an attorney for several years before becoming a practicing politician, he still needed – just like all high-level decision-makers – a second opinion from the legal expert Greg Craig, a skilled trial lawyer with several decades’ worth of experience at the time he was appointed to White House Counsel in Jan. 2009, who even helped Barack Obama prepare for his debates with John McCain, who was the Republican Party’s candidate for the 2008 presidential election, by acting as McCain likely would in a debate.

After serving the United States federal government as a White House official, people aren’t legally allowed to engage in certain types of work. Two of these types of work are public relations and politics. Those former White House officials who engage in either of these types of work – if not both of them – for a foreign entity are forced to register with the U.S. federal government under the Foreign Agents Registration Act, which has been a law since 1938.

According to NPR.org, Greg Craig, who lobbied on behalf of the Ukrainian government over the two-year period following his departure from the White House, failed to register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act. In April 2019, just earlier this year, Craig was indicted by the United States Department of Justice shortly after special counsel Robert Mueller’s report compiling his findings from his long investigation into whether President Donald Trump had, in fact, engaged in wrongful, illegal activities with Russian agents in order to benefit his political campaign in the 2016 president election and improve his chances of taking over 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington, D.C.

After a trial that lasted nearly three weeks, Craig was ruled by a panel of federal jurors to be not guilty of lying to the U.S. Department of Justice regarding the aforementioned work he did with the government of Ukraine, a country in Eastern Europe, as he was thought to be required to do so under the Foreign Agents Registration Act.

Ultimately, Craig and his law firm compiled a report for the Viktor Yanukovych-led Ukrainian government regarding the then-ongoing trial of former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko in 2012.

Internet Security Concerns Prompt The DNC to Reject Telephone Caucuses

Yesterday, concerns about security reportedly prompted the Democratic National Committee (“the DNC”) to indicate it would reject efforts by party organizers in two states to conduct caucuses that would allow some participants to contribute by telephone. The decision reflects the importance of safeguarding the integrity of the vote in the United States during the upcoming national election in 2020. At least one presidential candidate expressed disappointment with the decision. However, some law enforcement agencies have expressed concerns about the ability of authorities to prevent the hacking of telephone lines.

Two States Impacted by The DNC Decision

Democrats in Iowa and Nevada plan to conduct caucuses next year to help select people to attend the national convention to select their party’s presidential nominee. While political parties in most states invite voters to visit polling places and cast ballots during the primary, in some states Democrats utilizes a more time-consuming caucus system instead. In these states, Party members meet with one another in designated locations and discuss the candidates and the issues in order to help select delegates to attend the national convention. Party organizers in Iowa and Nevada had hoped to expand public participation in their state party caucuses by accepting telephone input from supporters who could not attend a local caucus in person.

A Significant Party Rule Change

In an effort to increase voter turnout during the primaries, the DNC approved a new set of rules last year that urged states to move away from caucuses towards conducting balloting during the primaries. Democrats in several states opted to change their system for selecting participants to attend the Democratic National Convention. Maine, Utah, Colorado, and Minnesota reportedly decided to conduct primary election polling instead of holding caucuses for this purpose.

Additional Primary Options?

Democrats during recent months have frequently stood in the forefront of Americans concerned about Russian hacking during the 2016 presidential election. Democrats in Iowa had hoped to expand public participation in their primary caucuses by allowing participation in a “virtual” caucus. It would include telephone participation. The DNC’s rejection of this format on security grounds would require Party leaders in both Nevada and Iowa to consider alternative arrangements for selecting delegates to the national party convention. In Nevada, Democrats benefit from provisions that permit alternative early in-person primary voting. Unfortunately, Democrats in Iowa reportedly did not include this option.

Woman Flys from Chicago to Omaha With Her Emotional Support Horse

There was a horse in the ticketing line at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport late last week. It might have been more well-mannered than some of the passengers that day too. It’s owner claims to have post-traumatic stress disorder, and she takes the 135 pound horse with her wherever she goes. The horse is named Flirty, and she even reminds her owner to take her medication. She also provides her owner with emotional support during times of high anxiety. American Airlines was pleased to have Flirty aboard the flight to Omaha at no charge whatsoever.

According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, miniature horses are permitted to fly with passengers as service animals. One passenger who had her objections to the flying horse remarked that they aren’t designed to “go 500 mph through the sky.” She said to Today and NBC News, “If you’re too nervous to fly, take a train or Xanax.” Her sentiments were that bringing a horse on commercial flight was “incredibly stressful and distracting” for the humans on the flight and stressful for the horse too.

Other people spoke up in defense of the owner and her horse. One person stated that the horse is a trained service animal, just like a dog would be. “It’s actually against the ADA to not allow it on.” The owner of the horse said that the horse took a nap on the flight. She told reporters that she fed Flirty treats when the aircraft was ascending and descending in order to help her adjust to the pressure changes. The horse displayed minimal discomfort by shaking her head once or twice, but the treats were said to have kept Flirty comfortable.

Because of the inconvenience to other passengers, the horse’s owner has opted out of any other flights in the foreseeable future. She’s apparently concerned that Flirty was “jostling” seats ahead of her too much. Regardless of the propensity for bumping into seats ahead of them, the U.S. Transportation Department indeed does recognize miniature horses as emotional support animals on flights. Airlines have been instructed to use a case-by-case determination on the safety of emotional support animals. Travelers who intend to fly with them can be required to check in at ticketing counters so that a traveler’s animal can be evaluated.

Bill Barr’s Witch Hunt Found A Little Dirt On Comey

Consumer spending accounts for 70 percent of U.S. Gross Domestic Product growth. Right now, consumers want to buy, but the tariff clouds look heavy-duty this time around. Buying might cost consumers more than they bargained until Trump stops pushing the tariff buttons.

There is a global recession in the works. Trump’s war with China turned the rest of the world upside down. Trade partners, financial markets, and long business relationships disappeared when Mr. Trump started his reign of sanction and tariff terror. The big question on the minds of economists is will consumers stop buying when they realize businesses and the government stopped spending this year? Mr. Trump has tariff fever and the side-effects will American consumers by the end of the year, according to MarketWatch.

The only sector of the economy that still believes Trump’s telling the truth when he says his economy is the best in the world is the consumer sector. China’s economy grows three times faster than Trump’s economy, according to MarketWatch.

One of Trump’s missions is to slow down China’s growth. The tariffs hurt China’s growth by two-tenths of a percent. Trump’s tariff slowed down U.S. growth by 1.4 percent. Consumer confidence is the key to avoiding a recession or experiencing a mild recession in the United States, according to the Washington Post. And that confidence may be in the first stage of eroding.

Mr. Trump keeps eroding that confidence by bashing Jay Powell and the Federal Reserve Board. Powell and members of the fed board still debate the financial and economic side-effects of Trump’s mission to rule international trade, according to the New York Times.

Mr. Trump acted like he would rethink his negotiating style and go easy on the Chinese. But Mr. Trump said he likes to bully. Trump told the press he built his empire by being a bully.

Bill Barr planned a family holiday party at Trump’s D.C. hotel. That will put $30,000 in Trump’s immigrant-hating pockets, according to the Washington Post. Mr. Barr also wants to help Trump get reelected. The attorney general is on a witch hunt. He wants to find dirt on Trump’s enemies before the election while he’s making life miserable for immigrants.

Inspector General Mike Horowitz gave Barr more dirt on Comey. Comey took the memos from his meeting with Trump home and put them in his safe while he worked for the FBI. That’s a no-no. Barr can’t prosecute Comey for trying to keep his memos safe. But Trump will blow them up and make them a talking point during his rallies, according to the Washington Post.

Lebanese Harvard University Student Denied Entry Into The United States Allegedly Because He Follows People On Social Media Who Have Anti-American Views

Harvard University is widely seen as the single most prestigious institution of higher education on planet Earth. In the 2016-2017 school year, its admissions department welcomed just 5.4 percent of applicants, making the school one of the most selective in the world. Keep in mind that many people without stellar applications are willing to effectively waste their time by applying to Harvard University, making this statistic even more astounding.

Right now, according to the Ivy League school, about 12 percent of students who make up the school’s graduating Class of 2022 – including first-time and returning freshmen – do not hail from the United States.

Harvard University starts classes soon. In preparation for the kickoff of the 2019-2020 school year, the Ivy League university opened up its dorms earlier today, on Tuesday, Aug. 27, 2019.

Ismail Ajjawi, a lifelong resident of Lebanon, a small country in the Middle East, was more than excited to begin his education at the most esteemed institution of higher education in the United States, home to the world’s best colleges and universities. Earlier today, Harvard University acknowledged that Ismail Ajjawi was denied entry into the United States by Customs and Border Protection, an agency under the guidance of the United States Department of Homeland Security, a federal government agency.

Jason Newton, an official spokesman for Harvard University, wrote to CNN earlier today that the school was “working closely with the student’s family and appropriate authorities” to make sure that Ajjawi would be able to enter the United States, even if the process takes longer than the latest point at which students would be able to normally start classes.

Harvard University’s sole school newspaper, The Harvard Crimson, published quotes from Ajjawi that originated from a written statement from the 17-year-old Lebanese immigrant. Ajjawi claimed that he was held for about eight hours before ultimately being denied entry. An official with Customs and Border Patrol asked him to enter passwords for his laptop and smartphone to search them.

According to Cnet.com, Ajjawi was told that his social media profiles followed accounts of people who didn’t hold the same political views of the United States, which is ultimately why he was denied entry into the country. Rather than being held until Harvard University is able to sniff out the situation and get down to its roots, Ajjawi was immediately ordered to be sent back to Tyre, Lebanon, where he’s from

Trump Orders U.S. Companies Out Of China

North Korea wants Mike Pompeo to butt out of the talks between Kim Jon Un and Donald Trump. China thinks Pompeo is a hater, but North Korean officials told the press Pompeo is more like a poisonous plant. Pompeo has a reputation for being pushy and disrespectful while he runs around the world spreading Trumpisms. Kim Jon Un wants Trump to close the deal without Pompeo’s help. But Mike keeps pushing Kim to agree to a deal before Trump will talk to his dictator buddy again, according to the Times.

Boris Johnson plans to talk to Trump at the G7 meeting in France. Macron and Merkel told Johnson he can forget about changing the Brexit deal Theresa May put on the table. Johnson said he will leave the EU without a signed deal on October 31st if the EU doesn’t change the backstop clause in the agreement.

Trump wants Johnson to leave the EU without a deal. Mr. Trump wants to ink a bilateral trade agreement with Boris once he leaves. But Nancy Pelosi told the press Congress won’t approve a new trade deal with Johnson if there is a hard Brexit ending.

Huawei’s CEO Ren Zhengfei told the press being on Trump’s blacklist won’t hurt his company’s revenue as much as he thought. Ren thinks his company will lose $10 billion in Smartphone revenue from the ban, but the company is still on track to finish the year with more than $100 billion in revenue.

China wants Canada to release Huawei’s CFO Meng Wanzhou, but Mike Pompeo went to Canada to convince Trudeau to keep her under house arrest until the U.S. can extradite her. Pompeo told Trudeau Trump will help get the two Canadians released from Chinese custody if he sticks with the plan to use Meng as a pawn in the trade war, according to the New York Times.

The stock market took another hard right hook from Trump’s war with China. The stock market dropped more than 600 points when China gave Trump a taste of their tariff tea. Mr. Trump went into angry bird mode when he heard that news. He ordered American companies to leave China. He wants U.S. companies to find other supply sources as well as make their products in American factories.

Mr. Trump doesn’t have the authority to order American companies to leave China. But he does have the authority under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act to stop transferring money to China. In order to stop the money flow, Trump would have to declare another national emergency. But Congress could terminate that declaration, according to CNN.

Study Shows That Air Pollution, Even At Levels Thought To Be Safe, Have Caused A Steady Increase In Deaths Over The Past 30 Years

Air pollution consists of countless chemical compounds that are known to be harmful to living organisms, including humans. Although we’d all like less air pollution, there’s no way that consumers, businesses, and governments would collectively agree to stop polluting the air – that would quite literally stop modern society as we know it.

As such, we’re forced to deal with air pollution, unfortunately.

A recent study that was published earlier today, on Wednesday, Aug. 21, 2019, in the New England Journal of Medicine found that public health is at risk, even in areas that have air pollution ratings that fall below local and state limits for air quality as set by local, state, and federal regulatory agencies.

The study took a whopping 30 years to be carried out from start to finish and tracked air pollution and general health trends in a total of 652 cities spread across 24 nations. These cities were spread roughly equally throughout the world, touching all six continents that are inhabited by humans. The study has earned its name as being one of the largest global studies regarding the impact that air pollution has on causes of death over the short term.

The study’s analysis of air pollution data, which ran from 1986 to 2015, indicated that there was, in fact, a boost in the number of deaths that took place that were linked to being exposed to fine particles that could be inhaled by humans. These deaths were split between respiratory and cardiovascular issues.

The United States Environmental Protection Agency indicates that particle pollution refers to the collection of solids and droplets of liquids found in the air. Particle pollution comes in four forms – smoke, dust, dirt, and soot. The primary sources of these types of pollution include agriculture, roads that haven’t been paved, commercial construction sites, motor vehicles, and plants that are field by the firing of natural gas or coal.

An expert in the field of public health and air pollution, Queen Mary University of London’s Professor of Primary Care Chris Griffiths, confirmed in an interview with the Science Media Centre that as air pollution became more congested, people died more quickly and more frequently. Dr. Griffiths went on to say that the authors of the study, which he was not involved with, all but proved that government bodies’ acceptable levels of air pollution “are set too high.”

Both Trump And Nicolas Maduro Confirm That They’ve Been In Contact With Each Other’s Government For Several Months

In May 2018, the South American country of Venezuela held its presidential election. The results of the 2018 Venezuelan presidential election were disputed widely shortly after they were shared with the public, though nothing came of it. Incumbent President Nicolas Maduro assumed his second term as the leader of Venezuela on Jan. 10, 2019, the same date upon which the ongoing 2019 Venezuelan presidential crisis began.

Opponents of President Maduro believe that Juan Guaido should be the president of Venezuela because the Venezuelan National Assembly collectively claimed that Nicolas Maduro took his position by force and that he should immediately be ousted from his role and replaced with Juan Guaido, the next-in-line for the presidency of Venezuela. The National Assembly’s actions were protected under article 233 of the Venezuelan Constitution.

Still, even though the leading legal body of Venezuela asserted that Nicolas Maduro should not be in power of the country, nothing has happened throughout the entirety of 2019, as Maduro remains in the role to this very day.

Yesterday, on Tuesday, Aug. 20, 2019, United States President Donald Trump and Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro individually confirmed that the two countries have been holding discussions in secret for several months. According to The Guardian, these talks have continued to take place despite the United States having placed a second round of economic sanctions on the South American country. President Trump indicated that members of the United States federal government, including himself, had been in contact with “various representatives” of the government of Venezuela.

Although President Trump didn’t come out with this bit of information, the United States has allegedly been in contact with Diosdado Cabello, the boss of the country’s socialist party, as quite a few members of Nicolas Maduro’s innermost circles have been trying to get guarantees from the U.S. government that they won’t, in fact, find themselves on the receiving end of lawsuits for the crimes they’ve been said to have engaged in.

Earlier this week, Cabello kept news of the alleged talks between himself and the United States government on the low, stating in a press conference that reports of their communications were nothing short of lies. However, Cabello did go on to say that he would be open to any communications from the United States.

Although Maduro has already said this publicly, he shared with reporters yesterday that he’d be willing to meet with President Trump in person.

Liberals Fear That Neither Warren Nor Sanders Can Beat Trump

Today’s liberals want a lot of changes. They want to get debt-free college, single-payer health care and environmental protections. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders are two of the Democrats running for president. However, liberals fear that neither one of them will be able to beat Trump.

They also think that Trump will do everything that they can to tear these two down. Richard Poulin is a 74-year-old voter who owns a gift shop. He hosted a Bernie Sanders campaign in his hometown a few years. However, he stated that he is now in favor of Elizabeth Warren.

Richard stated that Elizabeth is gaining momentum. He also stated that Elizabeth has a chance. However, he may not end up voting for Warren or Sanders. Richard admitted that he would support Joe Biden if he happened to get the nomination.

All of the Democrats agree that their main goal is to defeat Donald Trump. Democratic voters also want to know how the candidates will defeat Donald Trump. Some polls suggest that both Warren and Sanders can defeat Donald Trump. However, many voters are not convinced that he can win.

Nine percent of registered Democrats believe that Warren has the best chance of winning the general election. Twenty percent of Democrats believe that Sanders can win the general election. Forty-nine percent of Democrats believe that Biden has the best chance of winning.

Democrats believe that Warren’s aggressive liberal policies and gender can make it difficult for her to win. However, Elizabeth is rising in the polls. A poll that was done by “Fox News” showed that 20 percent of Democrats wanted Warren to be the nominee. Only 10 percent of Democrats want Sanders.

Biden is the most popular candidate. Thirty-one percent of Democrats want him to be the nominee. Sanders has reminded people that he could have beat Trump in the 2016 election.

Samantha Canton is a voter who has attended a Bernie Sanders rally. She stated that she wants the candidate who can beat Trump. She does not think that Warren can do it.

Scaramucci Thinks Trump’s A Wacko

Economic hell is about to explode around the globe, thanks to President Trump’s quest to control global trade. Mr. Trump’s trade war with China intensified when the president sent tweets about the unrest in Hong Kong. After Trump sent that tweet, he sent another tweet asking President Xi for another meeting, according to the New York Times.

President Xi’s spokesperson told the press Trump needs to stay out of the Hong Kong fiasco. And if he wants China to resume trade talks, he should honor his G20 commitment to lift the Huawei ban. In return, Xi said China would buy more farm products. Trump decided not to lift the Huawei ban, and China refused to buy more farm products. Mr. Trump blamed the Chinese for the breakdown in the trade talks, but according to the Washington Post, he is to blame for the current stalemate between the two superpowers.

Recession is trending on Twitter thanks to Trump’s economic blunders. The trade war with China disrupted international supply chains, and it turned the economic tables in countries like Brazil, Mexico, and Singapore.

Goldman Sachs economists warned investors a recession is a real possibility thanks to the inverted bond yield curve and Trump’s reluctance to dial back his demands to change China’s trade laws. The stock market has its worst day this year when the threat of a recession became public knowledge.

Mr. Trump’s great economy slipped well below his three percent economic growth target in June. Gross Domestic Product growth at the end of June was 2.1 percent. Government economists predict GDP growth will slip to 1.8 percent at the end of September. Mr. Trump wants the Feds to cut interest rates in September and October. Trump claims the Feds shoulder all the blame for his eroding economy.

Mitch McConnell won’t come back to Washington and address gun control legislation until September even though the Democrats sent him a letter requesting he return to deal with the issue. Mitch broke his shoulder in Kentucky, and he’s in hot water over his decision to lift sanctions on a Russian aluminum tycoon so he wants to stay in Louisville. When the details of McConnell’s devious decision came to light, Nancy Pelosi joined the choir of McConnell naysayers who call him MoscowMitch.

Anthony Scaramucci thinks Trump might not run for president in 2020 without explaining why he thinks that way. Anthony did say Mr. Trump’s not playing with a full deck. He also said Trump is too big a narcissist to be a racist. Trump views everyone as pawns in his quest to rule the world, according to Scaramucci.

Kremlin Breaks Its Silence Regarding Failed Missile Test That Took Five Russians’ Lives Last Week

Last week, an accident related to the explosion of a missile in northwestern Russia caused the death of five members of Russia’s state-owned atomic energy business, Rosatom. Although reports came from Rosatom and at least one local agency since the accident took place a few days ago, no such reports referencing the accident had been published by the federal government of the Russian Federation, also known as the Kremlin.

Earlier today, on Tuesday, Aug. 13, 2019, the Kremlin carried out a conference call headed by Dmitry Peskov, a spokesperson for the Russian Federation, with reporters from several news agencies. Although Peskov reported that he wasn’t able to speak in detail on the situation, he did make a remark that, unfortunately, accidents take place in the testing of military equipment. Peskov then stated that accidents such as the one that took place last week would not hinder the Russian government’s ability to further advance its military’s capabilities.

Peskov also took the opportunity to brag on the Russian Federation’s high rank on the world’s list of countries with advanced military equipment and weapons, alleging that Russia was “far ahead” of most countries on the third rock from the Sun.

News agencies and military experts from around the world widely believe that the missile that exploded in Nyonoksa, the small town in northwest Russia where the missile was tested by Rosatom, was powered by nuclear technology. However, Peskov declined to speak on the issue, reserving his right to confirm whether the missile was actually utilizing nuclear power or not.

Not too much information regarding the military missile testing or the accident has been released by government agencies on any level of government in Russia. However, based on a few pieces of information that have come out of the following agencies mentioned below, it’s likely that the missile that exploded a few days ago was an intercontinental ballistic missile known as the SSC-X-9 Skyfall by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, or NATO, and the Burevestnik by the Russian government.

Yesterday, on Monday, Aug. 12, 2019, a member of the Russian Federal Nuclear Center said that Rosatom’s scientists were around small sources of energy that utilized “radioactive fissile materials.” Rosatom also claimed that “isotope power sources within a liquid propulsion system” were being tested at the time of the accident. As such, experts have pieced together that the missile being tested was one that Putin first announced back in March 2018, stating it had “unlimited range.”

United States Issues Formal Travel Warning Telling Americans To Be Cautious About Going To Hong Kong Just Days After Major Political Protest Demonstration Took Place

Over the past few months, protests have waged on throughout Hong Kong, which is a territory owned by China, though it has much more autonomy than any other territory or state throughout mainland China or any other possession of the People’s Republic of China.

For many decades, Hong Kong has remained nearly entirely autonomous of the rest of China. The people who live in Hong Kong greatly value this freedom, especially considering that the People’s Republic of China is one of the most restrictive places on planet Earth. Take, for example, the so-called “great firewall of China,” which refers to the extensive restrictions that the country’s federal government has placed on its citizens’ use of the Internet. Every single day, tens of thousands of “Internet police” prevent Chinese citizens from browsing the World Wide Web how they want to. They also track how people browse the Internet and charge them with crimes – sometimes, they can go to jail for decades if their Internet-browsing-related crimes are serious enough.

Recently, several non-profit humanitarian rights organizations have alleged the federal government of the People’s Republic of China of meddling in the affairs of Hong Kong. Take, for example, the fact that five book vendors operating in Hong Kong have recently disappeared from their places of business in Hong Kong, only to reappear in mainland China under the custody of the federal government. This is one of many manifestations of China meddling in the autonomous legal workings of Hong Kong, something that the Chinese government promised not to engage itself in for years to come.

The main thing that kicked off the series of protests in Hong Kong as of recently is a piece of legislation that would make it possible for the government of the People’s Republic of China to extradite people living in Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan to mainland China. The legislation, formally known as the Fugitive Offenders and Mutual Assistance in Criminal Matters Legislation Bill, was proposed in Feb. 2019. Hong Kong citizens feared that the legislation would give the government of China the ability to extradite political dissidents, such as any of the many people who are currently protesting and have been since April of this year.

The United States formally issued a warning today, on Wednesday, Aug. 7, 2019, to the American public, telling them to be extremely cautious about traveling to Hong Kong as a result of the ongoing protests. This warning comes just two days after a major political demonstration carried out by the people of Hong Kong. Many other countries – not just the United States – have published almost identical warnings related to travel, such as Japan, Singapore, Australia, and the United Kingdom.

Trump Continues To Deny Putin Helped Him Get Elected

North Korea slapped Secretary Mike Pompeo in the face when they didn’t meet with him in Thailand. Kim Jon Un fired short-range missiles into the Sea of Japan instead of talking to Pompeo. Kim doesn’t like Pompeo’s stern negotiating tactics. The Chinese say the same thing about Pompeo. That’s why Pompeo didn’t attend the recent trade talks in Shanghai, according to the Washington Post.

Mr. Kim wants Trump to lift the sanctions, but he also wants Trump to help him bring North Korea into the 21st century. When Trump stood on North Korea soil and shook Kim’s hand, the Korean leader thought Trump was sincere when he said he would let Kim keep some of his nukes.

Ivanka and Jared told Mr. Kim they would help him develop slum-type housing projects, and Ivanka branded retails stores in his country when they sat down with Kim on the South Korean border. But Trump’s special advisors also told Kim he has to wait until the president finishes the trade war he started with China. But Kim misses being on the front page of American news reports, so he fired a few missiles to let Trump know he wants to live up to their secret agreement.

President Trump didn’t like the way the Chinese treated Steve Mnuchin and Bob Lighthizer when they met in Shanghai to force China to sign a trade deal. China’s head negotiator told Trump’s trade henchman they won’t change their laws to appease Mr. Trump. And they won’t sign a deal that doesn’t guarantee the removal of all Trump’s tariffs.

Lighthizer let Trump know China doesn’t care if he adds tariffs on all Chinese products. The Chinese know they can hurt Trump in other ways. They can stop selling rare earth materials to American companies. And they can sell-off U.S. Treasury notes at an accelerated rate. Plus, the Chinese consumer market won’t buy American products anymore. U.S. exports to China continue to drop even though Trump said his tariffs would level the trade playing field.
