    UNITED NATIONS (AP) — U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres warned global leaders Tuesday of the looming risk of the world splitting in two, with the United States and China creating rival internets, currency, trade, financial rules “and their own zero sum geopolitical and military strategies.” (please see article at the link)

    Great Power War ^ | 1/20/19 | USA Features
    A stunning map published this month by Smithsonian Magazine provides new details about the expansive nature of U.S. military involvement around the world as it relates to the post-9/11 “war on terror.” Contrary to the narrative that the war is winding down, the map resembles a modern-day version of shows a U.S. military presence akin to the period when the the ‘sun never sat on the British empire.’ Some 17 years after the war began, U.S. military presence globally is expanding and has now spread to more than 40 percent of the world’s countries. By ‘presence,’ that includes U.S. military...

    EXHIBIT: The power of media On display here is the power of the media that I think is helping to shape the distorted opinions of millennials. While the charts and maps show optimistic trends in almost every category, the author starts this report by saying: "For most Americans, these feel like bleak times. We have a massively unpopular, scandal-plagued president whose aides are being convicted of serious federal felonies. Overt, old-fashioned racism is publicly visible and powerful in a way it wasn’t only five years ago. More than 200 admired, powerful men have been accused of sexual misconduct or assault....

    Image from Small Arms Review According to the Small Arms Survey, world wide private firearms ownership has increased from about 650 million in 2006 to 857 million at the end of 2017. That is a 32% increase over the eleven year period, or 207 million firearms. The estimate for the United States increased from 270 million in to 393.3 million, a 46 percent increase or 123.3 million firearms, over the same period. The United States accounted for 60 percent of the total global increase. From smallarmssurvey.org: Uncertainty about any firearms data requires systematic estimation that relies on a broad...

    “What is good for the United States is good for the rest of the world,” has been Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin’s mantra. Americans know how stock prices have exploded in the United States since President Trump’s election, but stock prices started rising at the same time around the world. To the shocks of Trump’s American opponents, he was greeted by the international elites at the gathering in Davos, Switzerland as almost a conquering hero. Meanwhile, George Soros told people at the meetings that he thought that Trump was a “danger” to the world. So many people view economics as a...

    Saudi Arabia's asking its people to leave Lebanon will create a crisis, as they are taking their money and the banks will fail. Lebanon's government is now essentially nonfunctioning. Macron has arrived unexpectedly in Saudi to try to make peace. More on the Europeans and Soros's meddling, donating to people and parties in the European Union parliament. And meanwhile Russia is silent. Repercussions of all of this on Israel, of course. An excellent summary and update. Look up, as always.

    Russian president Vladimir Putin has joined the war of words concerning the international race to develop artificial intelligence. Speaking to students last Friday, Putin predicted that whichever country leads the way in AI research will come to dominate global affairs. “Artificial intelligence is the future, not only for Russia, but for all humankind,” said Putin, reports RT. “It comes with colossal opportunities, but also threats that are difficult to predict. Whoever becomes the leader in this sphere will become the ruler of the world.” The development of artificial intelligence has increasingly become a national security concern in recent years....

    India’s population is expected to surpass China’s in about seven years and Nigeria is projected to overtake the United States and become the third most populous country in the world shortly before 2050, a U.N. report said Wednesday. The report by the Department of Economic and Social Affairs’ Population Division forecasts that the current world population of nearly 7.6 billion will increase to 8.6 billion by 2030, 9.8 billion in 2050 and 11.2 billion in 2100. It said roughly 83 million people are added to the world’s population every year and the upward trend is expected to continue even with...

    On Sunday, Turkish voters voted by 51% to 49% to abolish the office of the Prime Minister and to grant president Erdogan sweeping powers. The referendum included 18 constitutional changes and will go into effect by Turkey's next general election in 2019. Opponents of Erdogan have called the results fraudulent and have vowed to challenge the outcome in court. It is not the first time the Turkish government has been accused of committing fraud in national and regional elections.

    It has been suggested that Italy leave the Eurozone until it has sorted out its own failings, but that is not likely to be an option for a country on the verge of collapse. Its people won't likely choose to take their leaky rafts out into an unstable sea alone. They would surely sink. The country's 12% unemployment rate should be a clear indication to the world that things are not alright in a country fraught with devastating economic prospects. UniCredit approved a rights issue in February to sell shares at discount. As one of Italy's largest lenders, UniCredit began...

    The US ambassador to the United Nations on Thursday said China can and must do more to force North Korea to halt its nuclear and missile programs. Ambassador Nikki Haley said President Donald Trump would raise the issue next week at his first summit with Chinese leader Xi Jinping. And, amid reports that Pyongyang is preparing another banned nuclear test, Haley said Washington would not settle for holding another UN debate. "I have no patience for it, and it is not helping anyone. And it's not about me. This administration has no patience for it," she said. (please see link...

    Consider Denmark and Norway The inexplicable happiness of the Norwegians and Danes as propagandized by the liberal-left media created a model for humanity and for America’s Democrats. It is a socialist utopia with no needy people and a government largesse subsuming the entire gamut of free-lunch ideology. Scandanavian societies are outwardly more humane than Eastern Block Soviet nations under Stalinist rule. The oppression of the Scandanavians at first glance is benign. But…it is oppression nevertheless, and benign only to those who prefer to have bureaucrats make the decisions for their lives and futures. They have absolutely no idea what makes...

    U.S. Special Operations Command launched a raid in Yemen’s Baida Province on Jan 29, targeting Qassim al-Rimi, the leader of Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. The first high-profile special forces operation of Trump’s presidency, the raid resulted in the deaths of at least 14 Al Qaeda fighters, 20 civilians and Navy SEAL William “Ryan” Owens. Three other Americans were reportedly wounded and an Osprey tilt-rotor aircraft was destroyed by U.S. forces after it was heavily damaged in a forced landing. Over the past few days, it has emerged that al-Rimi survived the raid and he has subsequently released an audio...
