What will Germany's foreign policy be after Angela Merkel?

GERMANY - Germany's next chancellor will in all likelihood be one of two current state premiers: Armin Laschet or Markus Söder. So, where do the two conservative hopefuls stand on foreign policy? Germany's electoral race is beginning in earnest as the top candidates to replace Chancellor Angela Merkel jockey for position and credibility. Germany's conservatives are expected to decide in late May who will be their official candidate for the chancellery. And given Berlin's increasing weight in the European Union and internationally, the stakes are high: whoever wins the top job in German politics is going to face some very tough challenges...

Texas Governor Lifts Covid-19 Mask Mandate, Business Restrictions

USA - Texas businesses will be able to operate at full capacity and state residents will no longer be required to wear masks to visit them, Governor Greg Abbott said Tuesday. “It is now the time to open Texas 100%,” Mr Abbott, a Republican, said during an announcement in Lubbock. “State mandates are no longer needed.” The easing of restrictions will take effect on March 10. After about a monthlong shutdown last year, Texas allowed businesses to reopen to varying degrees beginning in May. Mr Abbott instituted a mask mandate in July, as Covid-19 cases and hospitalizations increased. More than 44,000 Texans have died of Covid-19. The state has logged nearly 33,000 new cases in the past week, an increase from mid-February, but a significant decrease from January. Mr Abbott’s move, affecting some 29 million residents of the second-largest state, comes after some smaller states, such as Iowa, Montana and North Dakota, have removed mask mandates.

 
Texas' local officials blast Governor Greg Abbott for "irresponsible action"

USA - Mayors and county judges in some of Texas’ largest urban areas criticized Governor Greg Abbott over his decision to lift the statewide face mask mandate next week, saying it contradicts health officials’ advice as infections continue to spread throughout the state, which averaged over 200 reported deaths a day over the last week. Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price, a fellow Republican, called Abbott’s order “premature” and asked him to allow more people to get the vaccine. “I am calling on Governor Abbott to open up additional vaccine tier categories so that more people are eligible to get a vaccine if they want one,” Price said in a statement. “As the state’s directive has changed, so must our response. Now, more than ever, vaccines and testing must be readily available.” City and county officials urged residents in their areas to still follow recommendations from health experts and officials that call for wearing face masks in public.

 
The Covid Outbreak: “Biggest Health Scam of the 21st Century.”

USA - “We are health professionals of the international collective: United Health Professionals, composed of more than 1,500 members (including professors of medicine, intensive care physicians and infectious disease specialists) from different countries of Europe, Africa, America, Asia and Oceania and, on August 26, 2020, we addressed to governments and citizens of countries around the world an alert message regarding the COVID outbreak.

Stimulus checks have Americans in agreement, but...

USA - In a year filled with civil unrest and the deepest political divisions in recent history, America is coming together on one issue — COVID-19 relief in the form of continued stimulus checks. A new survey finds generous financial recovery plans win bipartisan support from voters across the United States. Unfortunately, Republican and Democrat voters show bitter divides on most other political issues. In fact, three in 10 Americans say their differences are so irreconcilable they support their state seceding from the US. While Americans agree on the need for stimulus checks during the pandemic, the events surrounding the 2020 presidential election and President Trump’s subsequent impeachment continue to divide voters. Researchers find just 22 percent Republican respondents have confidence in the integrity of the 2020 election results. That’s far less than the 42 percent of Republican policy experts polled by the survey. The survey finds the political divide in America has gotten so bad 29 percent of voters would entertain the idea of spitting the country into smaller regions. One in three Republican respondents support their state seceding from the union.

 
Apocalyptic locust plague ravage Middle East

SAUDI ARABIA - A swarm of locusts flies through Saudi Arabia as stunned people stare and watch and record on their phones. The desert locust has been active since 2020 following a period of wet weather. In a nightmarish clip, filmed by someone standing in the street on February 23, the locusts hang overhead like a swirling black cloud as they fly around outside people's homes. As the camera is turned around 360 degrees, it becomes clear nearby buildings are all completely surrounded by the ravenous insects as far as the eye can see. The footage continues for several more minutes, and the locusts just keep on coming as the swarm apparently grows in size.

 
Chinese vaccines sweep much of the world, despite concerns

CHILE - The plane laden with vaccines had just rolled to a stop at Santiago’s airport in late January, and Chile’s president, Sebastián Piñera, was beaming. “Today,” he said, “is a day of joy, emotion and hope.” The source of that hope: China – a country that Chile and dozens of other nations are depending on to help rescue them from the COVID-19 pandemic. China’s vaccine diplomacy campaign has been a surprising success: It has pledged roughly half a billion doses of its vaccines to more than 45 countries, according to a country-by-country tally by The Associated Press. With just four of China’s many vaccine makers claiming they are able to produce at least 2.6 billion doses this year, a large part of the world’s population will end up inoculated not with the fancy Western vaccines boasting headline-grabbing efficacy rates, but with China’s humble, traditionally made shots.

 
Biden’s First Foreign Policy Speech Vows Forever Wars

USA - US foreign policy has clearly continued in the same direction, without missing a beat. Biden’s first speech regarding foreign policy since taking office, now posted on the White House’s official website and titled, “Remarks by President Biden on America’s Place in the World,” reveals that, if anything, US belligerence on the global stage is set to only expand. Biden’s opening remarks attempt to suggest that America has drifted away under his predecessor US President Donald Trump. But when he says “America is back,” we are left to assume he means “back” to what the US was doing under the administration of US President Barack Obama under which he served as vice president.

Banks in Germany Tell Customers to Take Deposits Elsewhere

GERMANY - Interest rates have been negative in Europe for years. But it took the flood of savings unleashed in the pandemic for banks finally to charge depositors in earnest. Germany’s biggest lenders, Deutsche Bank AG DB 2.93% and Commerzbank AG CRZBY 0.61% , have told new customers since last year to pay a 0.5% annual rate to keep large sums of money with them. The banks say they can no longer absorb the negative interest rates the European Central Bank charges them. The more customer deposits banks have, the more they have to park with the central bank.

Eviction Moratorium Ruled Unconstitutional

USA - Ever since last summer, a federal moratorium on evictions has prevented landlords from evicting millions of tenants that are behind on their rent payments. This moratorium has caused extreme financial distress for many landlords, but it has also kept us from witnessing millions upon millions of Americans being thrown out into the cold streets.

Australia is now paying the price

AUSTRALIA - Australia is now paying the price economically for its hostility to China and slavish loyalty to the US. The consequences of Canberra’s unconditional alignment with Washington in the cold war against Beijing are becoming clear. How long can Australia afford to be overtly hostile towards China, its biggest benefactor? A recent study by the Australian National University found that Chinese investment in the country fell by more than 60 percent in 2020.

A Last Minute Mass Exodus

USA - We are witnessing a last minute mass exodus before the final collapse of our major cities. Americans fled the big cities “in droves” in 2020, and one recent survey discovered that even more Americans are planning to move in 2021. The corporate media is attempting to frame this mass exodus as a temporary phenomenon, but there is nothing temporary about it. Millions upon millions of people can see that our society is literally melting down all around us, and they want to get somewhere safe while they still can. In recent weeks, I have written articles about the specific problems that we are witnessing in Chicago and San Francisco, but the truth is that virtually all of our major cities are coming apart at the seams, and this is motivating more people than ever to seek greener pastures. With so many Americans looking to move, this has pushed up home prices in desirable suburban and rural areas to insane heights. We have never seen anything like this before in US history. According to the Pew Research Center, about one-fifth of all Americans either moved or know someone who moved in 2020…

 
Hohmann: Calls For Second Nuremberg Tribunal To Try Crimes Against Humanity

GERMANY - Should the technocrats who pushed governments to lockdown their citizens be tried for crimes against humanity? One prominent German lawyer, who is also licensed to practice law in America, thinks they should. And he is organizing a team of thousands of participating lawyers who want to prosecute a “second Nuremberg tribunal” against a cadre of international elites responsible for what he calls the “corona fraud scandal.”

Are The Recent UFO Disclosures Setting Us Up For A Mass Deception Of Epic Proportions?

USA - Have you noticed that UFO sightings have been in the news a lot lately? Even in the midst of all the other big events that are happening, evidence of mysterious objects flying through our skies continues to make headlines. In particular, what one American Airlines pilot says that he saw is really shaking a lot of people up. According to a radio transmission that was intercepted from American Airlines Flight 2292, a pilot claims that he witnessed “a long cylindrical object that almost looked like a cruise missile type of thing” fly at very high speed right over the top of his aircraft… And the FBI has also publicly announced that it is “aware of the reported incident”, but the agency has not provided any additional details.

Democrat-led House passes second largest stimulus package in history at $1.9 trillion as debt nears $28 trillion

USA - The stimulus bill costs $1.9 trillion as the national debt approaches $28 trillion, according to the latest Treasury Department data. The Democratic-led House of Representatives passed the second-largest stimulus package in US history in the early hours of Saturday that includes a gradual $15 minimum wage hike, despite the Senate parliamentarian's ruling. Two Democrats, Representatives Jared Golden of Maine and Kurt Schrader of Oregon, joined Republicans in voting against the bill. The final vote shortly after 2 am was 219 to 212 and the bill now moves to the Democratic-led Senate. Democrats are using budget reconciliation to pass the American Rescue Plan, which the Senate parliamentarian ruled cannot include a minimum wage increase. Reconciliation allows Democrats to pass the bill without relying on any votes from Senate Republicans.

Today we find the Church of God in a “wilderness of religious confusion!”

The confusion is not merely around the Church – within the religions of the world outside – but WITHIN the very heart of The True Church itself!
