THE WEEK IN REVIEW: AUGUST 23-29, 2020




MANKIND'S INHUMANITY TO THEIR FELLOW HUMAN BEINGS HAS GOT TO STOP!






AUGUST 29 IS RECORD STORE DAY.
SEPTEMBER 4 IS THE 45TH ANNIVERSARY OF SPACE: 1999.
SEPTEMBER 7 IS LABOR DAY IN THE UNITED STATES.
2020 IS THE 90TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE SNICKERS CANDY BAR.

AM๐Ÿ˜ทNGST EVENTS AROUND THE W๐ŸŒRLD THIS PAST WEEK…
*๐Ÿ“–The Discomfort of Evening has won the 2020 International Booker prize.

THE TERRORIST REPORT…
*The Free Choice E-zine does not support terrorism, no matter what the “cause” or alleged “justification”. Thus we will only be posting news items in this section whenever terrorists are brought to justice.

๐Ÿ˜ขPASSING PARADE…
*The innocent victims of Hurricanes Laura and Marco.
*Actress Lori Nelson (credits too numerous to mention) has taken her last bow on life’s stage.
*Animator Joe Ruby (credits too numerous to mention) has passed away.
*Astronaut Gerald Carr (Skylab 4) is no longer with us.
*Actor Allan Rich (credits too numerous to mention) has taken his last bow on life’s stage.
*Actor Chadwick Boseman (Marvel Films’ Black Panther, 42) has taken his last bow on life’s stage.
*Actor Caesar Cordova (Scarface, Carlito’s Way, more) has taken his last bow on life’s stage.
*Former professional basketball๐Ÿ€ player Cliff Robinson is no longer with us.

WITHIN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA…
THE BORDER WALL-KIDS-IMMIGRATION ISSUES…
*With families being separated upon apprehension, President Trump declared the lack of a border wall a “national emergency”. There have since been legal and legislative battles initiated over this. But what about the health/safety of all the “detainees”???
NOTE: While we are doing our best to provide coverage, the above is a serious, ongoing issue. Especially since no one has yet to discuss the costs of separating families and who is truly responsible for the deaths of FOUR “detainees” (known to date), let alone if anyone might actually be making a profit from this situation.
THE 2020 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION…๐Ÿ—น
*The virtual Republican National Convention: a review of Day One.
*It’s official. Trump-Pence versus Biden-Harris in November.
POST OFFICE DISPATCHES… (this item is big enough to deserve its own listing this week)
*The House of Representatives acted to save the Post Office, but can they??? (There are 2/TWO separate links in this item.)
*Apparently “Post Master General” Louis DeJoy hasn’t told Congress everything. So what happens next??? (There are 2/TWO separate links in this item.)
POLITICALLY…
*“He has no principles and you can’t trust him.”—Maryanne Trump Barry on her brother Donald.
*Another departure (defection?) in the Trump Administration as Kellyanne Conway prepares to leave.
*Is Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in trouble??? The White House/Trump says no. (There are 2/TWO separate links in this item.)
SOCIAL (IN)JUSTICE… (originally just George Floyd news)
*Sports protests supporting Blake. (There are 4/FOUR separate links in this item.)
๐Ÿ˜ทTHE US VERSUS COVID-19… (separated from the purely political news)
*The state of your state, from two different perspectives. (There are 2/TWO separate links in this item.)
*Trump on Emergency Use Authorization for using convalescent plasma against COVID-19. (There are 2/TWO separate links in this item.)
TRUMP TWEETS…

IT’S FACT CHECK TIME!
MEANWHILE, IN CONGRESS…
ELSEWHERE…
